External summary

<<<   Care for the Living    >>>
Setting: Emond's Field

Point of view: Perrin Aybara

Verin leads Stepper, with Perrin riding, to the Winespring Inn so Alanna can heal him. On the way he can hear calls from relatives of the young men that did not survive the Trolloc attack. He is carried into the inn and then must wait while Ihvon finds Alanna. Verin makes notes in her book while they wait. Perrin's friends, Elam Dowtry, Dav Ayellin, and Ewin Finngar bombard him with questions about what the world outside is like and he answers some. Tam and Abell come in as Ewin asks where Rand and Mat are. Perrin provides the crowd with some general information on what Rand and Mat are up to, but avoids anything that might lead to the Dragon Reborn.

Loial arrives and Perrin tells him that the Waygate is being used by Trollocs again, despite it having been locked. Perrin plans to go with Loial after he is Healed. Faile discovers that Perrin is burning up just as Alanna arrives. Alanna examines Perrin and then has him carried to the kitchen by Loial. She explains that the Healing will be very difficult and might fail. Perrin faints from the pain.
