Setting: Tel'aran'rhiod and the real world

Characters: Elyas, Hopper, Perrin, Slayer

Perrin enters Tel'aran'rhiod and continues to his training with Hopper. They go to Dragonmount where Perrin feels wolves gathering. They hear a howl of pain from Morninglight, who vanishes from the dream. Perrin tracks Slayer and they fight, but Slayer is too strong and Perrin has to flee, leaving the dream. After he wakes, he goes outside to chop wood, where he speaks with Elyas, thinking of the different kinds of lords he has encountered. Elyas tells him he found a balance, but doesn't know how.
