"Twice and twice shall he be marked,

twice to live and twice to die.
Once the heron, to set his path.
Twice the heron, to name him true.
Once the Dragon, for remembrance lost.
Twice the Dragon, for the price he must pay."

Setting: Mountains of Mist


Point of view: Perrin Aybara
Pull of Saidin by Forbis

"Ba'alzamon. And I must face him, Perrin. Light help me, half the time I want it to happen now, to be over with, and the other half...How many times can I manage to...Light, it pulls at me so. What if I can't...What is I...Oh, light, it pulls so..." - Rand

In the camp, Leya insists on going straight to Moiraine, but asks Perrin to feed her horse, Piesa. Perrin talks with Loial and Min. Min has a viewing of Leya, and predicts that she will have a violent death. "The Tinker woman is going to die. I saw her own face floating over her shoulder, covered in blood, eyes staring." Perrin worries a bit that the camp might be in danger but he rejects contacting the wolves and decides to rely on the scouts. Loial reveals that he plans to write a book about Rand. Rand comes out of Moiraine's cabin and walks away. They have been arguing. Uno, Masema, Ragan and the other Shienarans are in awe of him. Leya is in Moiraine's cabin with Lan and her.

Perrin follows Rand to a fissure in the mountain wall. Rand recites a portion of the Prophecies of the Dragon (quoted above) and notes that there are no Dragons yet. Rand asks Perrin if he thinks Mat is okay and Perrin says yes. He thinks Mat and the others must be in Tar Valon by now.

Rand and Moiraine argue over whether to stay put or do something about the people fighting and dying for him on Almoth Plain. He understands that she is right, but feels that he has to have something to do. Rand knows he must face Ba'alzamon again. As he frets, he feels saidin pulling and causes an earthquake without even knowing it. Rand asks Perrin if his dreams are okay. Perrin goes back to the camp, but Rand stays behind.
