From Tar Valon Library
Author: Val a'Shain
Chapter Icon: Flame of Tar Valon
Point of View: Egwene
The group reach Tar Valon. The girls are sent to their rooms and told to be silent.
Egwene and company reach one of the bridges to the island Tar Valon is built on. Verin halts to talk to the guards for a moment. Egwene is impatient to get Mat into the Tower for Healing but Verin doesn't seem to be in a hurry. The guard tells them there has been little trouble with the Whitecloaks. The rumors of Falme have reached Tar Valon already. Verin tells the guard he should know better than to listen to them.
After they enter the city Hurin tells them he'll be leaving them now that they are in Tar Valon. He wants to get to Shienar and report to Lord Agelmar and the king about events in Falme as soon as possible. The rest of the company heads for the Tower. Verin tells them to let het do the talking whatever happens. She makes it clear whatever is waiting for them in the Tower will not be pleasant.
When they reach the Tower the Mistress of Novices is waiting for them. Two bearers quickly take Mat away. When Sheriam comments on the runaways Verin brought back Egwene begins to protest. She is quickly silenced by Verin though. Verin tells Sheriam to keep Nynaeve, Elayne and Egwene locked up in their room until the Amyrlin sends for them. They are not to speak a word to anybody. Sheriam sends them to their rooms with an Accepted each to keep an eye on them. Egwene's thoughts are with Mat though.
