|<<< The Kin >>>|
|Setting: Ebou Dar, Tarasin Palace|
Point of view: Reanne Corly
Reanne watches Elayne and Nynaeve leave the house and discusses the situation with Berowin. Members of the Kin are those that left the White Tower, often for failing the test for Accepted or for the shawl. Sarainya Vostovan enters and informs Reanne that Callie is dead and the One Power was used to kill her. They are confused about who would do such a thing.
Point of view: Nynaeve al'Meara
Nynaeve realizes she will have to apologize to Elayne about the value of letting Setalle Anan lead them to the Kin and she hates to apologize. Elayne wonders aloud how old Reanne must be to show gray in her hair; Nynaeve feels put upon that slowing makes her look too young to hold authority. Nynaeve is struck in the head and groggily notices that Elayne has collapsed to the ground. A man and woman attempt to help them to a carriage but Nynaeve notices a blunted arrow laying on the ground. It must have grazed her and struck Elayne. Nynaeve channels to force would-be helpers (and a cutpurse) away. She Heals Elayne and they start debating who might want to kidnap them. They finally agree, though, that Mat will have to be the one to help find the Bowl of the Winds.
