! __Rand__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] arrive at [Four Kings] at dusk. The [Caemlyn Road] runs through the center of town. It is a rougher town than [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] are used to. They finally stop at the fourth inn, [The Dancing Cartman]. [Saml Hake] is the innkeeper. [Jak] and [Strom] are the bouncers. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] have to bargain harder for their room and board than they have at any other place. They play for a very rough crowd. They figure out that [Saml Hake] is going to rob them. 

They take notice of a noble in the back of the room who is watching them. [Rand|Rand alThor] overhears that he stopped and looked in all the other inns, including the [Royal Inn], then came here. [Rand|Rand alThor] steps outside and sees the man's carriage. The man's name is [Howal Gode]. [Rand|Rand alThor] remembers seeing him in [Whitebridge].[1] 

Eventually all the patrons leave except for [Howal Gode], who takes a room there for the night. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] are shown to their room. After [Saml Hake], [Jak] and [Strom] leave their room, [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] block the door. They try to escape through the window, but find it is nailed shut. [Howal Gode] comes to their room and tries to enter. [Gode|Howal Gode] tries to get them to surrender. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] look outside and see men outside, watching the window. Lightning then strikes their room.[2] The wall with the window has a hole in it. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] cannot see but he and [Rand|Rand alThor] take their belongings and leave.
