Setting: The White Tower in Tar Valon


Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene is visiting Ferane Neheran and other White sisters, and is asked about how she would go about controlling Rand as opposed to what Elaida has done so far. Knowing Rand, she explains his strengths and nature, and says she would not try to control him. The Sisters are all impressed by her logic, and offer her a place in the White Ajah. Afterwards, she is told she is to have no more lessons, but to work for 15 hours a day doing physical labor, and is not to have contact with other Sisters. She begins by scrubbing the ovens in the kitchens, and is surprised when Laras offers to smuggle her out of the city, but declines, stating she needs to heal the schism.

Later that day, she is ordered to attend Elaida, during a dinner with sisters from the Ajahs. She is detemined to avoid confrontation but is left powerless in the matter when Elaida, after having insulted the others starts questioning Egwene's Dreamings. Elaida is outwitted completely, and questioned by Egwene about all her mistakes, ranging from wanting to introduce a fourth oath, to handling the Dragon Reborn. Elaida finally loses control, and starts beating Egwene with the One Power, in violation of Tower Law. Egwene endures the punishment wordlessly, impressing the other Sisters present.
