"You wanted to go off alone. You were warned but you had to go. Never a care for what might be waiting. There are things in dreams to shatter the bravest heart. Things to eat the bravest heart."
   — Amys to Egwene after finding her in tel'aran'rhiod alone.

<<<   Sharp Lessons    >>>
Setting: 'Tel'aran'rhiod, Rhuidean


Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Elayne is in tel'aran'rhiod garbed as the Sea Folk are away from shore when Egwene appears. Egwene tells Elayne what has happened at Rhuidean and that Rand has plans that he won't share with anyone. Elayne mentions that the Sea Folk believe Rand is their Coramoor and Coine is spreading the word to other Sea Folk vessels as they travel toward Tanchico. They are only two or three days from making it to the port city. Suddenly Egwene is yanked out of tel'aran'rhiod.

Egwene becomes furious with Amys for taking her away from the meeting, but Amys is just as furious that Egwene did not keep her word to not go alone. Amys blocks Egwene from the source, hangs her by her feet, and appears to transform into a terrible reptile in a dream before letting Egwene come fully awake. As punishment Egwene must braid her hair as a Aiel child does. Amys invites her to a meeting with the other Wise Ones, Aviendha, and Moiraine.

The Wise Ones wish to have an Aiel close to Rand to guide and teach him. Aviendha is chosen and is furious at the prospect, but won't say why. Egwene asks Moiraine about what she saw in Rhuidean but Moiraine only gives a cryptic response.
