A Crown of Swords: Chapter 22
Chapter Icon: Flame of Tar Valon
Point of View: Elayne
Setting: Ebou Dar
Elayne and Nynaeve meet Setalle.
Elayne and Nynaeve go to see Mat at the Wandering Woman to apologize to him, although Nynaeve tries to go back on what they agreed. Elayne is tempted to take his foxhead medallion, but does not. Once awakened, he asks what they want and they thank him for the rescue. Elayne is infuriated by him dismissing his actions as nothing. They also apologize for the way they treated him and say they will not belittle or try to order him. They will agree to bodyguards if he thinks they are endangering themselves. He notices how difficult she finds the apology and mentions it, angering her even more, before asking what they want of him. Elayne tells him of the Bowl and that he should move into the palace, which he reluctantly agrees to do. They leave Mat and are interrupted by Setalle Anan. She chastises them for pretending to be Aes Sedai and does not listen when they insist that they are. She tells them she knows women who can help and will take them there.
