|Setting: Royal Palace of Andor in Caemlyn|
Point of view: Merana Ambrey
Merana, Seonid, Masuri, and Min are riding back to their inn after the first meeting between Rand and the Salidar embassy. Merana is reflecting on the meeting, which did not go well from her perspective. Verin and Alanna are also at the inn and Merana meets with them right after she arrives. Merana is displeased that Alanna bonded Rand but is still trying to find a way to use that to her advantage. Since they are not able to advise Rand directly, they are working behind his back by talking to some of the nobles that are in Caemlyn.
