— Logain Ablar to Nynaeve al'Meara
|<<< To Heal Again >>>|
- Point of view: Nynaeve al'Meara
Nynaeve shields, binds and gags Logain whilst berating herself for being so careless and healing him, and in the meantime, Elayne rushes off to get help. The door opens, and a flood of sisters and sitters enter the room, staring pointedly at her and the weaves she has woven until she loses her anger and loses Saidar altogether.
Romanda Cassin then appoints six sisters to hold the shield on Logain. Sheriam and Myrelle thus set about trying to get Nynaeve angry enough to channel by first believing and not believing. They succeed, and Nynaeve gets so angry, she almost walks up to the assemblage of sisters and slaps them.
Finally, Siuan and Leane are hustled in. Then, Nynaeve channels and heals them. Expecting praise, she only hears criticism. When Carlinya points out that they cannot again gentle Logain, she receives many murderous glances. Sheriam tells her to leave, and she does so.
Outside, she is cornered by many Yellow Ajah Sisters who want to see Nynaeve redo the weaves over and over. Nynaeve shoots at Elayne a frightened look, and Elayne apologizes for blabbing out to Sheriam the news before seeing who was there, a frightened look, but Elayne can't do anything, and only shrugs. Then Nynaeve is hustled off.
- Point of view: Siuan Sanche
Siuan resists the temptation to embrace Saidar and hold it, while accepting her friends congratulations on the restoration of her ability to channel. Seeing Gareth Bryne, she rushes up to tell him that she has been healed, and tries to lift him to drive the point home that she cannot be his servant, but fails, and realizes that she is much weaker than before.
When Gareth leaves, she starts to weep over the loss of her dead warder, Alric, and then sees Leane stand sympathetically nearby. The two of them then discuss about their renewed status and their unusual weakness in the One Power. After that, the two of them go to do battle with the Hall of the Tower to see if they are Amrylin and Keeper again.
- Point of view: Elayne Trakand
Elayne Trakand sits on her bed when the door bangs open, revealing a distraught and furious Nynaeve al'Meara, who has just gone through several efforts to make her angry enough to channel and demonstrate the weaving. Nynaeve starts ranting about the worst ever Yellow sisters. She also mentioned that she only had a roll for dinner.
Then Siuan and Leane come in with a big bowl of soup. They sit down and have a discussion with Elayne and Nynaeve. They also mention that they want Nynaeve to try healing them both again, as they are not at full strength, unlike Logain. Nynaeve loses her temper at them, but does not channel - she is too tired to do so anyway. But Leane cools down her temper, and the four of them make a pact. During the discussion, Elayne and Nynaeve learn that Aes Sedai govern themselves most of the time by who is stronger in the power. Siuan and Leane being very weak now will have very little influence with other sisters.
The next day, Siuan and Leane wake up Nynaeve, who loses her temper yet again, but she cannot heal them further, for they already have been healed.
- Point of view: Delana Mosalaine
Siuan has come to visit Delana and ask her for help. Siuan is trying to make arrangements so she can use a dream ter'angreal to meet with the Aiel Wise Ones. Delana promises to do what she can by using her influence with the Sitters.
A novice arrives and announces a woman to see Delana, Halima Saranov, who is already acquainted with Delana. Delana is about to deny knowing anyone by that name when she receives a signal from Halima. Halima gives a signal as an Aes Sedai, even though she clearly is not able to channel, which angers Delana. When Delana argues against taking orders, Halima mentions she has another name she uses sometimes, Aran'gar.
