! __Egwene__ POV

It is the day after [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]'s [Accepted] test. %%blue [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar]%% put [Egwene|Egwene alVere]'s name in the [novices] book yesterday evening.[1] One of the [Accepted], [Pedra], takes [Egwene|Egwene alVere] to her new room. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] meets [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] who is assigned to help her. They get to know each other. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is a bit jealous that [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] knows [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] thinks [channeling|True Source] ability has been culled by [gentling|stilling] men. %%red [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan]%% ordered a search for [Rand|Rand alThor] and was furious when he escaped.[2] [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] came to [Tar Valon] with [Elayne|Elayne Trakand], but [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] has not seen her since. They were followed by [Whitecloaks|Children of the Light] who are still camped by [Dragonmount]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] says there are two other girls who know [Rand|Rand alThor], [Min|Min Farshaw] and [Else Grinwell]. [Else Grinwell] ran away from home to become [Aes Sedai] after meeting [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] takes [Egwene|Egwene alVere] to meet [Min|Min Farshaw]. 

On the way, they see [Logain|Logain Ablar]. He is under the supervision of an [Accepted] and looks sad. They meet [Min|Min Farshaw] and [Egwene|Egwene alVere] recognizes her. [Min|Min Farshaw] tells her that Master [Fitch] is rebuilding [The Stag and Lion] with gold from [Tar Valon]. The messenger who brought the gold also brought a letter to [Min|Min Farshaw] "requesting" her to come to [Tar Valon].[3] [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] says that [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] saw the letter. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] and [Min|Min Farshaw] tell [Egwene|Egwene alVere] about the auras [Min|Min Farshaw] sees. She told [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] that she would have to share her husband with two other women[4] and that she would be a queen. She saw a severed hand, not hers. With [Egwene|Egwene alVere] she sees a white flame and other things. 

[Galad|Galad Damodred] and [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] arrive. [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is taken with [Galad|Galad Damodred]'s good looks. After [Galad|Galad Damodred] leaves, [Min|Min Farshaw] says that he will always do what is right, no matter who it hurts. [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] says [Galad|Galad Damodred] is the best swordsman he has ever seen. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] tells [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] that [Egwene|Egwene alVere] is from the same village as [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] thinks it is strange that so many people know of [Rand|Rand alThor]. An old farmer who met [Rand|Rand alThor] stayed in [Caemlyn] to support Queen [Morgase|Morgase Trakand].[5] He says [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] has questioned him about [Rand|Rand alThor]. They see [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] approaching and [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] leaves. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] introduces her to [Egwene|Egwene alVere]. [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] sends off [Egwene|Egwene alVere] and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] saying she wants to talk to [Min|Min Farshaw]. As they leave, [Egwene|Egwene alVere] hears [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] tell [Min|Min Farshaw] that she heard that [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] sent for her.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] It is not clear why there was a delay of a few days in making [Egwene|Egwene alVere] a [novices] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] an [Accepted].\\
[#2] This concurs with her bad-mouthing [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] throughout the [White Tower]. ([TGH,Ch4])\\
[#3] When did [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] send for [Min|Min Farshaw]?\\
[#4] This was actually from her [viewing|viewings] of [Rand|Rand alThor] when they first met in [Baerlon]. ([TEotW,Ch15], [TFoH,Ch50])\\
[#5] [Almen Bunt]\\
[#6] How did [Elaida|Elaida do Avriny aRoihan] learn about [Min|Min Farshaw]? It is possible that [Sheriam|Sheriam Bayanar] passed on the information. ([TGS,Ch25])\\
