|Setting: White Tower, Kinslayer's Dagger|
- Point of view: Moiraine Damodred
Moiraine and Siuan enter the Blue Ajah quarters where all the sisters are waiting. Anaiya greets them first. Kairen is next, followed by thirty-nine others. Anaiya accompanies Cabriana to drop the newly raised Aes Sedai to their rooms, and confirms that Eadyth is the First Selector. The rooms are lavish: they each have a bedroom, dressing room, sitting room, and study. Everything is too frilly for Moiraine's liking, but Siuan likes it. Moiraine wears her kesiera for the first time in six years. They head back to Eadyth's quarters, where she tells them speaking of strength in the One Power is the second greatest rudeness, speaking of age being the first. Nevertheless, Aes Sedai are to always judge another's strength and defer respectively. Failure to defer is the third greatest rudeness. On the way back to their rooms, Cetalia interrupts them. She gives Siuan a puzzle to solve. When she does, the older Aes Sedai hussles Siuan off to her own rooms. Anaiya returns and offers Moiraine Healing to ease the tightness of the Oaths. The tightness does not lossen, but it feels more comfortable. She also brings a summons to see Tamra.

After hours of testing, Cetalia conscripts Siuan to be her assistant as eyes and ears for the Blue Ajah. Siuan is dismayed, but sadly has no choice. Tamra put Moiraine in charge of dispursing the bounty. Now neither of them will be able to leave the White Tower to search for the Dragon Reborn. Siuan tells a little bit too much to Moiraine, who immediately figures out she is helping head the eyes-and-ears of the Blue. Moiraine then tells her that the Tower wants her to be Queen of Cairhien. She tells her she does not want to be like her rutheless grandmother, Carewin Damodred. She then offers Siuan Healing.
