Moiraine and Siuan deliver messages to Aes Sedai on behalf of Tamra


The next day, Moiraine and Siuan are still copying names. Tamra visits them again, and remarks that she had thought they'd be bored by now. Before she leaves, she gives Moiraine a note to deliver to an Aes Sedai named Kerene Nagashi.

Moiraine hurries up to the Green Ajah quarters. Walking through them, she sees battle tapestries, sword renditions, and a lot of Warders. When she gives Kerene the note, the Aes Sedai tells her Warders that Tamra wants her urgently, and she tells Moiraine that she will carry the reply herself.

When she is done, she learns that Siuan has just delivered a message to a Gray named Aisha Raveneos. Moiraine deduces that Tamra is looking for people to search for the Dragon Reborn.

Curious, Moiraine and Siuan try their hands at spying on the Amyrlin's study, but they give up after Aeldra, the new Keeper, catches Moiraine.
