! __Rand__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] are a day away from [The Queen's Man|The Queens Man]. ([TEotW,Ch33]) It is three nights since [Four Kings], two since [Market Sheran] and one since the [Darkfriend|Darkfriends] woman. They are approaching [Carysford]. The town is next to the [Cary River] and there is a bridge over the river. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] pass through the village and spent the night in haystacks. The next morning they notice that the road to [Caemlyn] is filled with people going to see the [false Dragon|False Dragons]. Merchants and [Queen's Guard|Andor] pass them several times. They pass through two more towns. 

At the third town ([Andor Village 2]), which they reach at nighttime, they pause near an inn, the [Goose and Crown].[1] At one end is a man on a cart, and at the other end are two other men. One of the two men walks away, and [Rand|Rand alThor] realizes that it is a [Fade]. The man on the cart is [Almen Bunt] and the man returning to the inn is [Raimun Holdwin], the innkeeper. The two hold a short conversation and it is apparent that [Bunt|Almen Bunt] is suspicious of [Holdwin|Raimun Holdwin]. [Holdwin|Raimun Holdwin] says that his "friend" is looking for two young men, one of whom carries a stolen heron-marked blade. [Holdwin|Raimun Holdwin] goes inside his inn. [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] approach [Bunt|Almen Bunt] and ask for a ride to [Caemlyn] and [Bunt|Almen Bunt] agrees.

During the ride, [Bunt|Almen Bunt] tells the boys a little about Queen [Morgase|Morgase Trakand]. She has an [Aes Sedai] advisor named %%red [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan]%%. She has a daughter named [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and a son named [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand]. [Luc|Luc Mantear] is dead and [Tigraine|Tigraine Mantear] is gone. [Taringail Damodred] married [Morgase|Morgase Trakand]. [Taringail|Taringail Damodred] is also dead.[2] [Rand|Rand alThor] falls to sleep and has nightmares. In one nightmare, [Thom|Thom Merrilin] tells him, "The [Dragon|Lews Therin Telamon] is one with the land; and the land is one with the [Dragon|Lews Therin Telamon]."[3] He awakes in the morning, and [Bunt|Almen Bunt] tells them that they have arrived at [Caemlyn].
