"The Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills, Perrin. I told you long ago that we were in a war. We cannot stop just because some of us may die. Any of us may die before it is done. Leya's weapons may not be the same as yours, but she knew that when she became part of it."
   —Moiraine Damodred

Setting: the Dragon's camp in the Mountains of Mist

Point of view: Perrin Aybara

Perrin again refuses to have contact with the wolves in the area. He returns to the camp and tells Moiraine and Min, who are both cross at Rand, that the earthquake was an accident. Loial, Uno and the Shienarans are fixing the damage. Perrin tells Min she should go home, but Min refuses, saying that a thing need not be bad just because it was chosen for her rather than by her. Rand sneaks back into camp.

Moiraine, Lan, Uno and Loial join them. Moiraine relates the news from Leya. Almoth Plain is in chaos. A huge force of Whitecloaks is pushing out the Taraboners and Domani rather than attacking those following Rand. Hunters for the Horn of Valere have appeared on the plain, but they won't find the horn since it has already been found. Three boys resembling Rand have been murdered, probably by Gray Men. Moiraine feels that Rand's display would alert every nearby Fade. Perrin skips dinner and goes to his hut to sleep. He has been having bad dreams.
