Breakfast in Manala
Chapter Icon: Trolloc Skull and Fist
Point of View: Lan
Setting: On the road to Chachin
The next morning, Moiraine tells Lan, Bukama and Ryne to call her Lady Alys. As they prepare to ride on towards Chachin, Moiraine spends time speaking with Ryne, who is very attentive to her.
When they reach a town called Manala, Moiraine announces that they will stop for breakfast. Once she has finished eating, she leaves the inn where they stopped, and the men don't notice that she is gone until a little while later.
With Bukama waiting in the inn incase Moiraine returns, Lan and Ryne go out to look for her. Lan finds her speaking to woman, and hears her asking after someone named Avene Sahera. She receives the answer that there are indeed some Saheras living nearby. Once the woman leaves, Lan remarks that perhaps her search would go more quickly if he, Bukama and Ryne helped her find this Avene Sahera. Moiraine declines and takes off, and Lan returns to Bukama.
