— Birgitte to Nynaeve before her archery performance with Nynaeve as the target
|<<< The Wheel Weaves >>>|
Point of view: Nynaeve al'Meara
Nynaeve ducks into an alley with Uno and Ragan, hoping to avoid Galad who was following her. Galad finds her though and faces down Uno and Ragan. Nynaeve agrees to let him approach so they can talk. As she asks questions he mentions Salidar and Nynaeve suddenly remembers that that is the name of the village where the Aes Sedai are gathering. Galad offers to find a ship for them even though she didn't ask. Nynaeve finally decides to trust Galad will not betray them to the Whitecloaks. He believes Nynaeve promised they would head to Caemlyn, but she avoided making any promises on where they would go. Galad asks after Egwene but Nynaeve will only say that she is far from here.
Galad leaves and the others head back to the menagerie with Nynaeve pondering what to do with Uno and Ragan. They agree to go with her and Elayne, bringing the rest of the Shienarans that aren't committed to Masema. Elayne and Birgitte join her and let her know she caused a lot of worry, leaving without telling anyone where or why. Nynaeve relates the events from the town until they stop at the place where she and Birgitte will perform. Nynaeve is still apprehensive over being a human target. Suddenly the arrows start arriving, outlining her body.
