! __Nynaeve__ POV

[Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], [Elayne|Elayne Trakand], [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion], [Thom|Thom Merrilin], [Juilin|Juilin Sandar], [Uno|Uno Nomesta], [Ragan] and the rest of the [Shienarans|Shienar] are on [Agni Neres]' riverboat, the ''[Riverserpent]''. With the crew and the refugees there are over hundred people aboard. Once they are downstream [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] [channels|True Source] the wind to move them along. Total of five days. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] continue to fight, [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] says like [Shago|Birgitte Trahelion] barmaids with [winteritch|Birgitte Trahelion].[1] [Neres|Agni Neres] gives the girls his cabin. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] figures out that he must be a smuggler. They force him to dump some of his cargo to make room for the refugees. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] uses her herbs on many of the sick and injured and surreptitiously [Heals|Weaves] the worst such as [Uno|Uno Nomesta]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] continues to study the %%ot [a'dam|aDam]%%. The first night [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] visit %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%% using the [twisted ring] and [iron disc] respectively.[2]

In the [Heart of the Stone|Stone of Tear] they wait to see if [Egwene|Egwene alVere] arrives, but she does not.

In the [Royal Palace] in [Caemlyn], [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] is duly impressed, but [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is very quiet.

In [Emond's Field|Emonds Field], they see a large manor house being built outside the village. There are banners of a red wolf's head and a red eagle. There is a stone plinth carved with many names.[3]

At [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan]'s study in the [White Tower], they search for information. There are now only six chairs for the Council.[4] [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] knows that [Rand|Rand alThor] is now in [Cairhien|Cairhien (Country)]. There is an angry letter from [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] ordering all [Aes Sedai] to return to the [White Tower] unless they have specific orders directly from her. [Tarabon] is still silent. [Pedron Niall] is still recalling the [Whitecloaks|Children of the Light] to [Amadicia]. [Davram Bashere] still cannot be found. An order sending an emissary to [Salidar].[5] Letters from Queen [Tenobia|Tenobia si Bashere Kazadi] and King [Easar|Easar Togita] resenting [White Tower] meddling.

[Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] practice controlling %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%, but it is difficult for them. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] alternates between the [iron disc] and [amber plaque].

[Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] grows close to three of the refugees. [Nicola|Nicola Treehill], about [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]'s age, fled when her fiancé, [Hyran], was killed. [Marigan],[6] a few years older, dealt in herbs and cures in [Samara]. She was forced to flee with her sons, [Seve] and [Jaril]. [Areina|Areina Nermasiv], the youngest, went to [Illian|Illian (City)] after her younger brother [Gwil|Gwil (Areina)]. She wound up taking the oath as a [Hunters of the Horn|Horn of Valere]. She is not from [Ghealdan], but is not clear exactly where she is from. [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] finally realizes that [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] really is the Daughter-Heir of [Andor]. [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] starts using her own name again. The three girls wash the coloring out of their hair. They reach [Boannda] dawn of the third day. Most of the refugees disembark, but [Areina|Areina Nermasiv], [Nicola|Nicola Treehill] and [Marigan] stay. When everyone is off, [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] tells [Neres|Agni Neres] that they are going on to [Salidar]. 

That night [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] are back in %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%% in the [Heart of the Stone|Stone of Tear]. This time [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] is angry enough to use the [amber plaque]. She can barely [channel|True Source], confirming [Elayne|Elayne Trakand]'s observation. [Amys] and [Egwene|Egwene alVere] arrive. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] immediately jumps in, telling them again about [Rand|Rand alThor]'s victory in [Cairhien|Cairhien (Country)].[7] They are astounded that [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] killed [Couladin]. [Rand|Rand alThor] is well, but he drives himself too hard. [Aviendha] is with him. He often practices the sword with [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]. He practices hand to hand fighting with the [Aiel]. He has started a school as well inviting scholars and craftsmen like a looking glass maker and giant crossbow maker.[8] The [Shaido] are retreating north, but more are joining them from the [Aiel Waste]. [Rand|Rand alThor] is sending many of the [Aiel] to [Tear|Tear (Country)]. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] report on their activities, about the gathering in [Salidar], and the [Prophet|Masema Dagar] is actually [Masema|Masema Dagar]. [Amys] is unhappy that anyone with a %%ot [ter'angreal|Angreal]%% can now enter %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%%. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] hints at meeting them in [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar]'s study, then she and [Amys] vanish.

[Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] go to [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar]'s study. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] appears briefly and chews them out for almost revealing their unsanctioned meetings. She quickly vanishes. [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] loses her hold and returns to her body.

When she and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] wake, [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] reports that she took another quick trip to [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan]'s study. All she found was an order demoting [Shemerin] to [Accepted]. Two days later, mid-afternoon, the ''[Riverserpent]'' reaches the vicinity of [Salidar]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand], [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion], [Thom|Thom Merrilin], [Juilin|Juilin Sandar] and the [Shienarans|Shienar] disembark and head into the woods. [Areina|Areina Nermasiv], [Nicola|Nicola Treehill] and [Marigan] decide to accompany them.
