He staggered as it vanished, the [jitsugen] of what he had just done flooding in on him.

213

Licking his [kuchibiru], he met Mat’s [gyōshi].

Licking his lips, he met Mat’s stare.

214

"I think we had [yori yoi] go back to the [in], now,"

“I think we had better go back to the inn, now,”

215

he said unsteadily.

“Yes.

219

I think we [yori yoi] had."

I think we better had.”

220

The [sutorīto] had begun to [nuritsubushi] up again, and more than one passerby stared at the two [otokonoko] and murmured something to a [konpanion].

The street had begun to fill up again, and more than one passerby stared at the two boys and murmured something to a companion.

221

Rand was sure the [monogatari] would spread.

Rand was sure the story would spread.

222

A crazy [otoko] had tried to [kaishi, hajimeru] a [tatakai] with three [kodomo tachi] of the [hikari].

A crazy man had tried to start a fight with three Children of the Light.

223

That was something to [hanashi] about.

That was something to talk about.

224

Maybe the dreams are [unten] me crazy.

Maybe the dreams are driving me crazy.

225

The two lost their [michi] several [kai] in the [iki atari battari] [machi], [shikashi] after a [dōjini, tsutsu, issun] they fell in with Thom Merrilin, [tsukuri] a grand [kōshin] all by himself through the [gunshū].

The two lost their way several times in the haphazard streets, but after a while they fell in with Thom Merrilin, making a grand procession all by himself through the throng.

226

The [ginyūshijin] said he was out to [sutorecchi] his [ashi] and for a [sukoshi] of fresh [kūki], [shikashi] whenever anyone looked twice at his colorful [gaitō] he would announce in a resounding [koe], "I am at the [sutaggu] and [raion], tonight only."

The gleeman said he was out to stretch his legs and for a bit of fresh air, but whenever anyone looked twice at his colorful cloak he would announce in a resounding voice, “I am at the Stag and Lion, tonight only.”

227

It was Mat who began disjointedly [uranai] Thom about the [yume] and their [shinpai] over whether or not to tell Moiraine, [shikashi] Rand joined in, for there were [chigai] in exactly how they remembered it.

It was Mat who began disjointedly telling Thom about the dream and their worry over whether or not to tell Moiraine, but Rand joined in, for there were differences in exactly how they remembered it.

228

Or maybe each [yume] was a little different, he [shikō].

Or maybe each dream was a little different, he thought.

229

The [ōte] [ichibu] of the dreams was the same, though.

The major part of the dreams was the same, though.

230

They had not gone far in the [uranai] before Thom started paying full [chūi].

They had not gone far in the telling before Thom started paying full attention.

231

When Rand mentioned Ba’alzamon, the [ginyūshijin] grabbed them each by a [kata] with a [komando] to hold their [shita], raised on [tsumasaki] to [hyōjō] over the [heddo] of the [gunshū], then hustled them out of the [o-oshimasu] to a [deddo endo] [roji] that was empty except for a few [ki waku] and a [suratto]-ribbed, [kiiro] [inu] huddled out of the [samui].

When Rand mentioned Ba’alzamon, the gleeman grabbed them each by a shoulder with a command to hold their tongues, raised on tiptoe to look over the heads of the crowd, then hustled them out of the press to a dead-end alley that was empty except for a few crates and a slat-ribbed, yellow dog huddled out of the cold.

232

Thom stared out at the [gunshū], looking for anyone stopping to listen, before turning his [chūi] to Rand and Mat.

Thom stared out at the crowd, looking for anyone stopping to listen, before turning his attention to Rand and Mat.

233

His [aoi] [me] bored into theirs, between flickering away to [udedokei] the [kuchi no naka] of the [roji].

His blue eyes bored into theirs, between flickering away to watch the mouth of the alley.

234

"don’t ever say that [namae] where [gaijin] can hear."

“Don’t ever say that name where strangers can hear.”

235

His [koe] was [hikui], [shikashi] urgent.

His voice was low, but urgent.

236

"Not even where a [gaijin] might hear.

Mat snorted.

241

Thom ignored him.

244

“Tell me everything you remember about it.

Thom’s [kuchi no naka] tightened momentarily, then he shook his [atama] again.

Does he have sense enough to keep his mouth shut?’

316

“I think so,”

“I think so,”

317

Rand said at the same [jikan] that Mat said, "We were going back to the [in] to [keikoku shite iru] him."

Rand said at the same time that Mat said, “We were going back to the inn to warn him.”

318

"The [hikari] send we’re not too late!"

“The Light send we’re not too late!”

319

[gaitō] flapping around his [ashikubi], [pacchi] fluttering in the [kaze], Thom strode out of the [roji], looking back over his [kata] without stopping.

Cloak flapping around his ankles, patches fluttering in the wind, Thom strode out of the alley, looking back over his shoulder without stopping.

Rand and Mat hurried after him, [shikashi] he did not [taiki] for them to [kyacchi] up.

Rand and Mat hurried after him, but he did not wait for them to catch up.

This [jikan] he did not [ichiji teishi] for [hitobito] who looked at his [gaitō], or those who hailed him as a [ginyūshijin], either.

This time he did not pause for people who looked at his cloak, or those who hailed him as a gleeman, either.

She rooted Hightower out – I don’t know how he got back over the [kawa], [shikashi] she said he was hiding in his [shinshitsu] and didn’t want to go near the [kawa] – anyway, she bullied him into finding a [fune] big enough for her and her [uma] and rowing her across.

Mat’s [mayuge] lifted higher with every [kotoba], and when Rand finished he let out a [hikui] [fue].

Mat’s eyebrows lifted higher with every word, and when Rand finished he let out a low whistle.

379

“You ever try to make Nynaeve see something she doesn’t want to see?

"From my [kansatsu] of the young [onna],"

“From my observation of the young woman,”

Thom said, "I don’t think she will [teishi] until she has had her say.

Thom said, “I don’t think she will stop until she has had her say.
