|<<< A Note from the Palace >>>|
|Setting: Ebou Dar|
Point of view: Matrim Cauthon
Mat hurries out of the palace, still finishing dressing after being dragged to Tylin's rooms last night by serving women. Six coaches are ready to leave for the Rahad to get the ter'angreal stash. Nalesean, Vanin, and the other Redarms are ready to go. Elayne is there with some of the Kin, discussing their ages which are lengthier than any Aes Sedai. Elayne and Mat begin to argue about how soon they can leave Ebou Dar. Mat wants to be gone yesterday while Elayne wants to stay until they have used the Bowl to fix the weather. Nynaeve arrives with Lan. Even though she is the reason they're late, she immediately begins rushing everyone to get moving. Mat peppers Lan with questions until he informs Mat that he is now married to Nynaeve and that the Sea Folk have unusual marriage customs. Lan tells Mat that two of his Redarms were killed with balefire yesterday by Moghedien and that she might still be around. Mat reads a letter Tylin sent with a basket which asks him about the Daughter of the Nine Moons and informs him that she is moving his things in to her room. Mat is almost ready to cry.
