For all he could tell, though, Moiraine might just as [yoku] have gone to [suimin].

For all he could tell, though, Moiraine might just as well have gone to sleep.

2

[shikashi] he [shikō] Tam’s breathing sounded easier.

But he thought Tam’s breathing sounded easier.

3

She must be doing something.

So [ito] was he that he jumped when Lan spoke softly.

So intent was he that he jumped when Lan spoke softly.

5

"That is a [bakkin] [buki] you wear.

“That is a fine weapon you wear.

6

Is there by [kikai] a [heron] on the [ha], as [yoku]?"

Is there by chance a heron on the blade, as well?”

7

For a [shunkan] Rand stared at the [kanshu], not grasping what it was he was talking about.

For a moment Rand stared at the Warder, not grasping what it was he was talking about.

8

He had completely forgotten Tam’s [ken] in the lather of dealing with an Aes Sedai.

He had completely forgotten Tam’s sword in the lather of dealing with an Aes Sedai.

9

It did not seem so heavy anymore.

It did not seem so heavy anymore.

10

“Yes, there is.

“Yes, there is.

11

What is she doing?”

What is she doing?”

12

"I’d not have [shikō] to find a [heron]-[māku] [ken] in a [basho] like this,"

“I’d not have thought to find a heron-mark sword in a place like this,”

13

Lan said.

Lan said.

14

"It belongs to my [chichioya]."

“It belongs to my father.”

15

He glanced at Lan’s [ken], the [moyō] just visible at the [hashi] of his [gaitō]; the two [ken] did [hyōjō] a [yoi] [keiyaku] alike, except that no [sagi] showed on the [kanshu]’s.

He glanced at Lan’s sword, the hilt just visible at the edge of his cloak; the two swords did look a good deal alike, except that no herons showed on the Warder’s.

16

He swung his [me] back to the [shindai].

He swung his eyes back to the bed.

17

Tam’s breathing did [saundo] easier; the rasp was gone.

18

He was sure of it.

He was sure of it.

19

"He bought it a long [jikan] ago."

“He bought it a long time ago.”

20

"Strange [koto] for a [hitsuji kai] to buy."

“Strange thing for a sheepherder to buy.”

21

Rand spared a sidelong [hyōjō] for Lan.

Rand spared a sidelong look for Lan.

22

For a [gaijin] to [fushigi] about the [ken] was prying.

For a stranger to wonder about the sword was prying.

23

For a [kanshu] to do it...

For a Warder to do it...

24

Still, he [kanjita] he had to say something.

Still, he felt he had to say something.

25

"He never had any [shiyō] for it, that I know of.

“He never had any use for it, that I know of.

26

He said it had no [shiyō].

27

Until [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt], anyway.

Until last night, anyway.

28

I didn’t even know he had it till then.”

I didn’t even know he had it till then.”

29

“He called it useless, did he?

“He called it useless, did he?

30

He must not always have [shikō] so."

He must not always have thought so.”

31

Lan touched the [saya] at Rand’s [koshi] briefly with one [gizōsha].

Lan touched the scabbard at Rand’s waist briefly with one forger.

32

"There are [basho] where the [heron] is a [shinboru] of the [shujin] [kenshi].

“There are places where the heron is a symbol of the master swordsman.

33

That [ha] must have traveled a strange [dōro] to [owari] up with a [hitsuji kai] in the Two [kawa]."

That blade must have traveled a strange road to end up with a sheepherder in the Two Rivers.”

34

Rand ignored the unspoken [shitsumon].

Rand ignored the unspoken question.

35

Moiraine still had not moved.

Moiraine still had not moved.

36

Was the Aes Sedai doing anything?

Was the Aes Sedai doing anything?

37

He shivered and rubbed his [ude], not sure he really wanted to know what she was doing.

He shivered and rubbed his arms, not sure he really wanted to know what she was doing.

38

An Aes Sedai.

An Aes Sedai.

39

A [shitsumon] of his own popped into his [atama] then, one he did not want to ask, one he needed an [kotae] to.

A question of his own popped into his head then, one he did not want to ask, one he needed an answer to.

40

"The [shichō] ."

“The Mayor–”

41

He cleared his [nodo], and took a [fukai] [iki].

He cleared his throat, and took a deep breath.

42

"The [shichō] said the only [riyū] there’s anything left of the [mura] is because of you and her."

“The Mayor said the only reason there’s anything left of the village is because of you and her.”

43

He made himself [hyōjō] at the [kanshu].

He made himself look at the Warder.

44

"[baai] you had been told about a [otoko] in the [hayashi]...

“If you had been told about a man in the woods...

45

a [otoko] who made [hitobito] afraid just by looking at them...

a man who made people afraid just by looking at them...

46

would that have warned you?

would that have warned you?

47

A [otoko] whose [uma] doesn’t make any [noizu]?

A man whose horse doesn’t make any noise?

48

And the [kaze] doesn’t [tacchi] his [gaitō]?

And the wind doesn’t touch his cloak?

49

Would you have known what was going to happen?

Would you have known what was going to happen?

50

Could you and Moiraine Sedai have stopped it [baai] you’d known about him?"

Could you and Moiraine Sedai have stopped it if you’d known about him?”

51

"Not without [hanbun] a dozen of my [shimai],"

“Not without half a dozen of my sisters,”

52

Moiraine said, and Rand started.

Moiraine said, and Rand started.

53

She still knelt by the [shindai], [shikashi] she had taken her [te] from Tam and [hanbun] turned to [kao] the two of them on the [endai].

She still knelt by the bed, but she had taken her hands from Tam and half turned to face the two of them on the bench.

54

Her [koe] never raised, [shikashi] her [me] pinned Rand to the [kabe].

Her voice never raised, but her eyes pinned Rand to the wall.

55

"Had I known when I left [tāru] Valon that I would find Trollocs and Myrddraal here, I would have brought [hanbun] a dozen of them, a dozen, [baai] I had to [doraggu] them by the scruffs of their [kubi].

“Had I known when I left Tar Valon that I would find Trollocs and Myrddraal here, I would have brought half a dozen of them, a dozen, if I had to drag them by the scruffs of their necks.

56

By myself, a [kongetsu]’s warning would have made little [chigai].

By myself, a month’s warning would have made little difference.

57

Perhaps none.

Perhaps none.

58

There is only so much one [hito] can do, even calling on the One [dengen o on ni shimasu], and there were probably [yoku] over a hundred Trollocs scattered around this [chiku] [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt].

There is only so much one person can do, even calling on the One Power, and there were probably well over a hundred Trollocs scattered around this district last night.

59

An entire [kobushi]."

An entire fist.”

60

"It would still have been [yoi] to know,"

“It would still have been good to know,”

61

Lan said sharply, the [kireaji] directed at Rand.

Lan said sharply, the sharpness directed at Rand.

62

“When did you see him, exactly, and where?”

“When did you see him, exactly, and where?”

63

"That’s of no [sono kekka] now,"

“That’s of no consequence now,”

64

Moiraine said.

Moiraine said.

65

"I will not have the [otokonoko] thinking he is to [hinan] for something when he is not.

“I will not have the boy thinking he is to blame for something when he is not.

66

I am as much to [hinan].

I am as much to blame.

67

That accursed [reivun] yesterday, the [michi] it behaved, should have warned me.

That accursed raven yesterday, the way it behaved, should have warned me.

68

And you, too, my old [yūjin]."

And you, too, my old friend.”

69

Her [shita] clicked angrily.

Her tongue clicked angrily.

70

"I was overconfident to the [pointo] of [gōman], sure that the [Kurai] One’s [tacchi] could not have spread so far.

“I was overconfident to the point of arrogance, sure that the Dark One’s touch could not have spread so far.

71

Nor so heavily, not yet.

Nor so heavily, not yet.

72

So sure.”

So sure.”

73

Rand blinked.

Rand blinked.

74

"The [reivun]?

“The raven?

75

I don’t understand.”

I don’t understand.”

76

"[funiku] [taberu]."

“Carrion eaters.”

77

Lan’s [kuchi no naka] twisted in [keno kan].

Lan’s mouth twisted in distaste.

78

"The [Kurai] One’s [teshita] often find spies among [ikimono] that [fīdo] on [shi].

“The Dark One’s minions often find spies among creatures that feed on death.

79

[watarigarasu] and [karasu], mainly.

Ravens and crows, mainly.

80

[ratto], in the [toshi], sometimes."

Rats, in the cities, sometimes.”

81

A quick [furue] hashitta through Rand.

A quick shiver ran through Rand.

82

[watarigarasu] and [karasu] as spies of the [Kurai] One?

Ravens and crows as spies of the Dark One?

83

There were [watarigarasu] and [karasu] everywhere now.

There were ravens and crows everywhere now.

84

The [Kurai] One’s [tacchi], Moiraine had said.

The Dark One’s touch, Moiraine had said.

85

The [Kurai] One was always there – he knew that – [shikashi] [baai] you tried to [sanpo] in the [hikari], tried to live a [yoi] [jinsei], and did not [namae] him, he could not [gai] you.

The Dark One was always there – he knew that – but if you tried to walk in the Light, tried to live a good life, and did not name him, he could not harm you.

86

That was what everybody believed, what everybody learned with his [haha]’s [gyūnyū].

That was what everybody believed, what everybody learned with his mother’s milk.

87

[shikashi] Moiraine seemed to be saying ...His [ichimoku] fell on Tam, and everything else was pushed [migi] out of his [atama].

But Moiraine seemed to be saying ...His glance fell on Tam, and everything else was pushed right out of his head.

88

His [chichioya]’s [kao] was noticeably less flushed than it had been, and his breathing sounded almost normal.

His father’s face was noticeably less flushed than it had been, and his breathing sounded almost normal.

89

Rand would have leaped up [baai] Lan had not caught his [āmu].

Rand would have leaped up if Lan had not caught his arm.

90

“You’ve done it.”

“You’ve done it.”

91

Moiraine shook her [atama] and sighed.

Moiraine shook her head and sighed.

92

“Not yet.

“Not yet.

93

I [kibō] it is only not yet.

I hope it is only not yet.

94

Trolloc [buki] are made at forges in the [barē] called Thakan’dar, on the [hijō ni] [shamen] of Shayol Ghul itself.

Trolloc weapons are made at forges in the valley called Thakan’dar, on the very slopes of Shayol Ghul itself.

95

Some of them take a [osen] from that [basho], a stain of [aku] in the [kinzoku].

Some of them take a taint from that place, a stain of evil in the metal.

96

Those tainted [ha] make [kizu] that will not heal unaided, or [genin] deadly [hatsunetsu], strange [byōki] that [iyakuhin] cannot [tacchi].

Those tainted blades make wounds that will not heal unaided, or cause deadly fevers, strange sicknesses that medicines cannot touch.

97

I have soothed your [chichioya]’s [itami], [shikashi] the [māku], the [osen], is still in him.

I have soothed your father’s pain, but the mark, the taint, is still in him.

98

Left alone, it will grow again, and consume him.”

Left alone, it will grow again, and consume him.”

99

"[shikashi] you won’t [kyūka] it alone."

“But you won’t leave it alone.”

100

Rand’s [kotoba] were [hanbun] [tangan], [hanbun] [komando].

Rand’s words were half plea, half command.

101

He was shocked to realize he had spoken to an Aes Sedai like that, [shikashi] she seemed not to [chūi shite kudasai] his [kuchō].

He was shocked to realize he had spoken to an Aes Sedai like that, but she seemed not to notice his tone.

102

“I will not,”

“I will not,”

103

she agreed simply.

104

"I am [hijō ni] tired, Rand, and I have had no [kikai] to [nokori] since [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt].

“I am very tired, Rand, and I have had no chance to rest since last night.

105

Ordinarily it would not [mondai], [shikashi] for this [shinsetsu] of [kizutsuketa]...

Ordinarily it would not matter, but for this kind of hurt...

106

This”

This”

107

– she took a small [bandoru] of [shiroi] [shiruku] from her [pōchi] – "is an angrea."

– she took a small bundle of white silk from her pouch – “is an angreal ”

108

She [mimashita] his [shiki].

She saw his expression.

109

“You know of angreal, then.

“You know of angreal, then.

110

[yoi].

Good.”

111

“Unconsciously he leaned back, further away from her and what she held.

Unconsciously he leaned back, further away from her and what she held.

112

A few [ie] mentioned angreal, those [ibutsu] of the [jidai] of [densetsu] that Aes Sedai used to perform their greatest [fushigi].

A few stories mentioned angreal, those relics of the Age of Legends that Aes Sedai used to perform their greatest wonders.

113

He was startled to see her unwrap a smooth [aiborī] [okimono], [jidai]-[kurai]ened to [fukai] [chairo].

He was startled to see her unwrap a smooth ivory figurine, age-darkened to deep brown.

114

No longer than her [te], it was a [onna] in flowing [rōbu], with long [kami] falling about her [kata].

No longer than her hand, it was a woman in flowing robes, with long hair falling about her shoulders.

115

"We have lost the [tsukuri] of these,"

“We have lost the making of these,”

116

she said.

she said.

117

“So much is lost, perhaps never to be found again.

118

So few remain, the Amyrlin [shīto] almost did not allow me to take this one.

So few remain, the Amyrlin Seat almost did not allow me to take this one.

119

It is [yoku] for Emond’s [ryōiki], and for your [chichioya], that she did give her [kyoka].

It is well for Emond’s Field, and for your father, that she did give her permission.

120

[shikashi] you must not [kibō] too much.

But you must not hope too much.

121

Now, even with it, I can do little more than I could have without it yesterday, and the [osen] is strong.

Now, even with it, I can do little more than I could have without it yesterday, and the taint is strong.

122

It has had [jikan] to fester."

It has had time to fester.”

123

"You can [tasukeru] him,"

“You can help him,”

124

Rand said fervently.

Rand said fervently.

125

“I know you can.”

“I know you can.”

126

Moiraine smiled, a bare curving of her [kuchibiru].

Moiraine smiled, a bare curving of her lips.

127

“We shall see.”

“We shall see.”

128

Then she turned back to Tam.

Then she turned back to Tam.

129

One [te] she laid on his [gaku]; the [sonota] cupped the [aiborī] [zu].

One hand she laid on his forehead; the other cupped the ivory figure.

130

[me] closed, her [kao] took on a [hyōjō] of [nōdo].

Eyes closed, her face took on a look of concentration.

131

She scarcely seemed to breathe.

She scarcely seemed to breathe.

132

"That [raidā] you spoke of,"

“That rider you spoke of,”

133

Lan said quietly, “the one who made you afraid – that was surely a Myrddraal.”

Lan said quietly, “the one who made you afraid – that was surely a Myrddraal.”

134

“A Myrddraal!”

“A Myrddraal!”

135

Rand exclaimed.

Rand exclaimed.

136

"[shikashi] Fades are twenty [ashi] tall and..."

“But Fades are twenty feet tall and...”

137

The [kotoba] faded away under the [kanshu]’s mirthless grin.

The words faded away under the Warder’s mirthless grin.

138

"Sometimes, [hitsuji kai], [ie] make [monogoto] larger than [shinjitsu].

“Sometimes, sheepherder, stories make things larger than truth.

139

[shinjiru] me, the [shinjitsu] is big enough with a Halfman.

Believe me, the truth is big enough with a Halfman.

140

Halfman, Lurk, Fade, [to Shadowman]; the [namae] depends on the [tochi] you’re in, [shikashi] they all mean Myrddraal.

Halfman, Lurk, Fade, Shadowman; the name depends on the land you’re in, but they all mean Myrddraal.

141

Fades are Trolloc [supōn], throwbacks almost to the [ningen] [kabushiki] the Dreadlords used to make the Trollocs.

Fades are Trolloc spawn, throwbacks almost to the human stock the Dreadlords used to make the Trollocs.

142

Almost.

Almost.

143

[shikashi] [baai] the [ningen] [hizumi] is made stronger, so is the [osen] that twists the Trollocs.

But if the human strain is made stronger, so is the taint that twists the Trollocs.

144

Halfmen have [pawāzu] of a [shinsetsu], the [sōto] that [sutemu] from the [Kurai] One.

Halfmen have powers of a kind, the sort that stem from the Dark One.

145

Only the weakest Aes Sedai would [shippai] to be a [macchi] for a Fade, one against one, [shikashi] many a [yoi] [otoko] and true has fallen to them.

Only the weakest Aes Sedai would fail to be a match for a Fade, one against one, but many a good man and true has fallen to them.

146

Since the [sensō] that ended the [jidai] of [densetsu], since the Forsaken were [ketsugō shita], they have been the [nō] that tells the Trolloc [kobushi] where to [sutoraiki].

Since the wars that ended the Age of Legends, since the Forsaken were bound, they have been the brain that tells the Trolloc fists where to strike.

147

In the [hi] of the Trolloc [sensō], Halfmen led the Trollocs in [tatakai], under the Dreadlords."

In the days of the Trolloc Wars, Halfmen led the Trollocs in battle, under the Dreadlords.”

148

“He scared me,”

“He scared me,”

149

Rand said faintly.

Rand said faintly.

150

“He just looked at me, and...”

“He just looked at me, and...”

151

He shivered.

He shivered.

152

"No must for [haji], [hitsuji kai].

“No need for shame, sheepherder.

153

They scare me, too.

They scare me, too.

154

I’ve seen [dansei] who have been [heishi] all their [inochi] [tōketsu] like a [tori] facing a [hebi] when they confronted a Halfman.

I’ve seen men who have been soldiers all their lives freeze like a bird facing a snake when they confronted a Halfman.

155

In the [kita], in the Borderlands along the Great [kōhai], there is a saying.

In the north, in the Borderlands along the Great Blight, there is a saying.

156

The [hyōjō] of the Eyeless is [kyōfu]."

The look of the Eyeless is fear.”

157

“The Eyeless?”

“The Eyeless?”

158

Rand said, and Lan nodded.

Rand said, and Lan nodded.

159

"Myrddraal see like [īgurusu], in [yami] or in [hikari], [shikashi] they have no [me].

“Myrddraal see like eagles, in darkness or in light, but they have no eyes.

160

I can think of few [monogoto] more dangerous than facing a Myrddraal.

I can think of few things more dangerous than facing a Myrddraal.

161

Moiraine Sedai and I both tried to kill the one that was here [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt], and we failed every [jikan].

Moiraine Sedai and I both tried to kill the one that was here last night, and we failed every time.

162

Halfmen have the [Kurai] One’s own [un]."

Halfmen have the Dark One’s own luck.”

163

Rand swallowed.

Rand swallowed.

164

"A Trolloc said the Myrddraal wanted to [hanashi] to me: I didn’t know what it meant."

“A Trolloc said the Myrddraal wanted to talk to me: I didn’t know what it meant.”

165

Lan’s [atama] jerked up; his [me] were [aoi] [ishi].

Lan’s head jerked up; his eyes were blue stones.

166

“You talked to a Trolloc?”

“You talked to a Trolloc?”

167

“Not exactly,”

“Not exactly,”

168

Rand stammered.

Rand stammered.

169

The [kanshu]’s [shisen] held him like a [torappu].

The Warder’s gaze held him like a trap.

170

“It talked to me.

“It talked to me.

171

It said it wouldn’t [kizutsuketa] me, that the Myrddraal wanted to [hanashi] to me.

It said it wouldn’t hurt me, that the Myrddraal wanted to talk to me.

172

Then it tried to kill me.”

Then it tried to kill me.”

173

He licked his [kuchibiru] and rubbed his [te] along the knobby [kawa] of the [ken] [moyō].

He licked his lips and rubbed his hand along the knobby leather of the sword hilt.

174

In short, choppy [bunshō] he explained about returning to the [nōka].

175

“I killed it, instead,”

“I killed it, instead,”

176

he finished.

he finished.

177

"By [jiko], really.

“By accident, really.

178

It jumped at me, and I had the [ken] in my [te]."

It jumped at me, and I had the sword in my hand.”

179

Lan’s [kao] softened slightly, [baai] [iwa] could be said to soften.

Lan’s face softened slightly, if rock could be said to soften.

180

"Even so, that is something to speak of, [hitsuji kai].

“Even so, that is something to speak of, sheepherder.

181

Until [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt] there were few [dansei] [minami] of the Borderlands who could say they had seen a Trolloc, much less killed one."

Until last night there were few men south of the Borderlands who could say they had seen a Trolloc, much less killed one.”

182

“And fewer still who have slain a Trolloc alone and unaided,”

“And fewer still who have slain a Trolloc alone and unaided,”

183

Moiraine said wearily.

Moiraine said wearily.

184

“It is done, Rand.

“It is done, Rand.

185

Lan, [tasukeru] me up."

Lan, help me up.”

186

The [kanshu] sprang to her [saido], [shikashi] he was no quicker than Rand darting to the [shindai].

The Warder sprang to her side, but he was no quicker than Rand darting to the bed.

187

Tam’s [hada] was cool to the [tacchi], though his [kao] had a pale, washed-out [hyōjō], as [baai] he had spent far too long out of the [nichi].

Tam’s skin was cool to the touch, though his face had a pale, washed-out look, as if he had spent far too long out of the sun.

188

His [me] were still closed, [shikashi] he drew the [fukai] [kokyū] of normal [suimin].

His eyes were still closed, but he drew the deep breaths of normal sleep.

189

"He will be all [migi] now?"

“He will be all right now?”

190

Rand asked anxiously.

Rand asked anxiously.

191

"With [nokori], yes,"

“With rest, yes,”

192

Moiraine said.

Moiraine said.

193

"A few [shūkan] in [shindai], and he will be as [yoi] as ever."

“A few weeks in bed, and he will be as good as ever.”

194

She walked unsteadily, despite holding Lan’s [āmu].

195

He swept her [gaitō] and [sutaffu] from the [isu] [kusshon] for her to sit, and she eased herself down with a [tameiki].

197

Rand’s [kata] shook; he [sukoshi] his [rippu] to [kīpu] from laughing.

Rand’s shoulders shook; he bit his lip to keep from laughing.

198

At the same [jikan] he had to [sukurabu] a [te] across his [me] to clear away [namida].

At the same time he had to scrub a hand across his eyes to clear away tears.

199

“Thank you.”

“Thank you.”

200

"In the [jidai] of [densetsu],"

Moiraine looked at Lan, and the [kanshu] unfolded his [ude].

Moiraine looked at Lan, and the Warder unfolded his arms.

263

He looked at Rand from under his [kawa] [heddo obi], and Rand had the [kanji] of [kōfuku] weighed on invisible [sukēru] again.

He looked at Rand from under his leather headband, and Rand had the feeling of being weighed on invisible scales again.

264

“Did you know,”

The Trollocs ignored them afterwards, and the people who fled from them as well, unless they actually got in the way of the true attack.

Rand said slowly.

274

"I suppose it just didn’t [shinku] in."

“I suppose it just didn’t sink in.”

"Two [nōjō] were attacked,"

“Two farms were attacked,”

276

Lan went on.

Lan went on.

277

"Yours and one [sonota].

“Yours and one other.

278

Because of Bel [kōdinēto] everyone who lived at the [ni] [nōjō] was already in the [mura].

Rand looked at Moiraine, leaning back in the [isu], [shikashi] she said nothing, only watched him, a [yubi] laid across her [kuchibiru].

Rand looked at Moiraine, leaning back in the chair, but she said nothing, only watched him, a finger laid across her lips.

“Here in Emond’s Field, they struck first at the forge, and the blacksmith’s house, and Master Cauthon’s house.”

287

Rand’s [kuchi no naka] was suddenly [dorai].

Rand’s mouth was suddenly dry.

288

“That’s crazy,”

“That’s crazy,”

he managed to get out, then jumped as Moiraine straightened.

292

“Purposeful.

The Trollocs did not come to Emond’s [ryōiki] by [gūzen], and they did not do what they did for the [yorokobi] of [satsugai] and [moeru], however much that delighted them.

The Trollocs did not come to Emond’s Field by happenstance, and they did not do what they did for the pleasure of killing and burning, however much that delighted them.

294

They knew what, or rather who, they were after.

295

The Trollocs came to kill or [kyapucha] young [dansei] of a certain [jidai] who live near Emond’s [ryōiki]."

The Trollocs came to kill or capture young men of a certain age who live near Emond’s Field.”

296

"My [jidai]?"

Rand’s [koe] shook, and he did not [kaigo].

Rand’s voice shook, and he did not care.

298

"[hikari]!

“Light!

299

Mat.

Mat.

300

What about Perrin?”

What about Perrin?”

301

"Alive and [yoku],"

“Alive and well,”

302

Moiraine assured him, "[baai] a [moteasobu, saji] sooty."

Moiraine assured him, “if a trifle sooty.”

303

“Ban Crawe and Lem Thane?”

“Ban Crawe and Lem Thane?”

304

"Were never in any [kiken],"

“Were never in any danger,”

305

Lan said.

Lan said.

306

“At least, no more than anyone else.”

“At least, no more than anyone else.”

307

"[shikashi] they [mimashita] the [raidā], the Fade, too, and they’re the same [jidai] as I am."

“But they saw the rider, the Fade, too, and they’re the same age as I am.”

308

"[shujin] Crawe’s [hausu] was not even damaged,"

“Master Crawe’s house was not even damaged,”

309

Moiraine said, "and the [mirā] and his [kazoku] slept through [hanbun] the [kōgeki] before the [noizu] woke them.

Moiraine said, “and the miller and his family slept through half the attack before the noise woke them.

310

Ban is ten [kagetsu] older than you, and Lem eight [kagetsu] younger."

Ban is ten months older than you, and Lem eight months younger.”

311

She smiled dryly at his [odoroki].

312

"I told you I asked [shitsumon].

“I told you I asked questions.

313

And I also said young [dansei] of a certain [jidai].

You and your two [yūjin] are within [shūkan] of one another.

You and your two friends are within weeks of one another.

315

It was you three the Myrddraal sought, and none [tanin]."

It was you three the Myrddraal sought, and none others.”

316

Rand shifted uneasily, wishing she would not [hyōjō] at him like that, as [baai] her [me] could pierce his [nō] and read what lay in every [kōnā] of it.

Rand shifted uneasily, wishing she would not look at him like that, as if her eyes could pierce his brain and read what lay in every corner of it.

317

“What would they want with us?

“What would they want with us?

318

We’re just [nōka], [hitsuji kai]."

We’re just farmers, shepherds.”

319

"That is a [shitsumon] that has no [kotae] in the Two [kawa],"

“That is a question that has no answer in the Two Rivers,”

320

Moiraine said quietly, "[shikashi] the [kotae] is important.

Moiraine said quietly, “but the answer is important.

321

Trollocs where they have not been seen in almost two thousand [toshi] tells us that much."

Trollocs where they have not been seen in almost two thousand years tells us that much.”

322

"[takusan] of [ie] tell about Trolloc raids,"

Rand said stubbornly.

324

“We just never had one here before.

“We just never had one here before.

325

[kanshu] [tatakai] Trollocs all the [jikan]."

Warders fight Trollocs all the time.”

326

Lan snorted.

Lan snorted.

327

"[otokonoko], I expect to [tatakai] Trollocs along the Great [kōhai], [shikashi] not here, nearly six hundred [rīgu] to the [minami].

“Boy, I expect to fight Trollocs along the Great Blight, but not here, nearly six hundred leagues to the south.

328

That was as [atsui] a raid [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt] as I’d expect to see in Shienar, or any of the Borderlands."

That was as hot a raid last night as I’d expect to see in Shienar, or any of the Borderlands.”

329

“In one of you,”

“In one of you,”

330

Moiraine said, "or all three, there is something the [Kurai] One [kyōfu]."

Moiraine said, “or all three, there is something the Dark One fears.”

331

“That...

“That...

332

that’s impossible.”

that’s impossible.”

333

Rand stumbled to the [windō] and stared out at the [mura], at the [hitobito] working among the [iseki].

Rand stumbled to the window and stared out at the village, at the people working among the ruins.

334

"I don’t [kaigo] what’s happened, that is just impossible."

“I don’t care what’s happened, that is just impossible.”

335

Something on the [midori] caught his [me].

Something on the Green caught his eye.

336

He stared, then realized it was the blackened [kirikabu] of the [haru, haneagaru] [pōru].

He stared, then realized it was the blackened stump of the Spring Pole.

337

A [bakkin] Bel [kōdinēto], with a [gyōshō jin], and a [ginyūshijin], and [gaijin].

A fine Bel Tine, with a peddler, and a gleeman, and strangers.

338

He shivered, and shook his [atama] violently.

He shivered, and shook his head violently.

339

“No.

“No.

340

No, I’m a [hitsuji kai].

No, I’m a shepherd.

341

The [Kurai] One can’t be interested in me."

The Dark One can’t be interested in me.”

342

"It took a great [keiyaku] of [doryoku],"

“It took a great deal of effort,”

343

Lan said grimly, "to bring so many Trollocs so far without raising a [iroai] and [sakebi] from the Borderlands to Caemlyn and beyond.

Lan said grimly, “to bring so many Trollocs so far without raising a hue and cry from the Borderlands to Caemlyn and beyond.

344

I [negai] I knew how they did it.

I wish I knew how they did it.

345

Do you really [shinjiru] they went to all that bother just to [yakedo] a few [hausu]?"

Do you really believe they went to all that bother just to burn a few houses?”

346

“They will be back,”

“They will be back,”

347

Moiraine added.

Moiraine added.

348

Rand had his [kuchi no naka] [ōpun] to argue with Lan, [shikashi] that brought him up short.

Rand had his mouth open to argue with Lan, but that brought him up short.

349

He spun to [kao] her.

He spun to face her.

350

“back?

“Back?

351

can’t you [teishi] them?

Can’t you stop them?

352

You did [saigo] [yoru, kishi_knt], and you were surprised, then.

You did last night, and you were surprised, then.

353

Now you know they are here.”

Now you know they are here.”

354

“Perhaps,”

“Perhaps,”

355

Moiraine replied.

Moiraine replied.

356

"I could send to [tāru] Valon for some of my [shimai]; they might have [jikan] to make the [tabi] before we must them.

“I could send to Tar Valon for some of my sisters; they might have time to make the journey before we need them.

357

The Myrddraal knows I am here, too, and it probably will not [kōgeki] – not openly, at least – lacking [engun], more Myrddraal and more Trollocs.

The Myrddraal knows I am here, too, and it probably will not attack – not openly, at least – lacking reinforcements, more Myrddraal and more Trollocs.

358

With enough Aes Sedai and enough [kanshu], the Trollocs can be beaten off, though I cannot say how many [tatakai] it will take."

With enough Aes Sedai and enough Warders, the Trollocs can be beaten off, though I cannot say how many battles it will take.”

359

A [bijon] danced in his [atama], of Emond’s [ryōiki] all in [hai].

A vision danced in his head, of Emond’s Field all in ashes.

360

All the [nōjō] burned.

All the farms burned.

361

And [udedokei] [oka], and Deven [noru], and Taren [ferī].

And Watch Hill, and Deven Ride, and Taren Ferry.

362

All [hai] and [chi].

All ashes and blood.

363

“No,”

“No,”

364

he said, and [kanjita] a wrenching [uchigawa] as [baai] he had lost his [gurippu] on something.

he said, and felt a wrenching inside as if he had lost his grip on something.

365

"That’s why I have to [kyūka], isn’t it?

“That’s why I have to leave, isn’t it?

366

The Trollocs won’t come back [baai] I am not here."

The Trollocs won’t come back if I am not here.”

367

A [saigo] [torēsu] of [ganko] made him add, "[baai] they really are after me."

A last trace of obstinacy made him add, “If they really are after me.”

368

Moiraine’s [mayuge] raised as [baai] she were surprised that he was not convinced, [shikashi] Lan said, "Are you willing to [kake] your [mura] on it, [hitsuji kai]?

Moiraine’s eyebrows raised as if she were surprised that he was not convinced, but Lan said, “Are you willing to bet your village on it, sheepherder?

369

Your whole Two [kawa]?"

Your whole Two Rivers?”

370

Rand’s [gankosa] faded.

Rand’s stubbornness faded.

371

“No,”

“No,”

372

he said again, and [kanjita] that [kūkyo] [uchigawa] again, too.

he said again, and felt that emptiness inside again, too.

373

“Perrin and Mat have to go, too, don’t they?”

“Perrin and Mat have to go, too, don’t they?”

374

Leaving the Two [kawa].

Leaving the Two Rivers.

375

Leaving his home and his [chichioya].

Leaving his home and his father.

376

At least Tam would get [yori yoi].

At least Tam would get better.

377

At least he would be able to hear him say all that on the [saiseki jō] [dōro] had been [nansensu].

At least he would be able to hear him say all that on the Quarry Road had been nonsense.

378

“We could go to Baerlon, I suppose, or even Caemlyn.

“We could go to Baerlon, I suppose, or even Caemlyn.

379

I’ve heard there are more [hitobito] in Caemlyn than in the whole Two [kawa].

I’ve heard there are more people in Caemlyn than in the whole Two Rivers.

380

We’d be safe there.”

We’d be safe there.”

381

He tried out a [warai] that sounded [nakazora].

He tried out a laugh that sounded hollow.

382

"I used to [hakuchūmu] about [mite] Caemlyn.

“I used to daydream about seeing Caemlyn.

383

I never [shikō] it would come about like this."

I never thought it would come about like this.”

384

There was a long [chinmoku], then Lan said, "I would not [kaunto] on Caemlyn for [anzen].

There was a long silence, then Lan said, “I would not count on Caemlyn for safety.

385

[baai] the Myrddraal want you badly enough, they will find a [michi].

If the Myrddraal want you badly enough, they will find a way.

386

[kabe] are a poor [bā] to a Halfman.

Walls are a poor bar to a Halfman.

387

And you would be a [baka] not to [shinjiru] they want you [hijō ni] badly indeed."

And you would be a fool not to believe they want you very badly indeed.”

388

Rand [shikō] his [seirei] had sunk as [hikui] as they possibly could, [shikashi] at that they slid deeper.

Rand thought his spirits had sunk as low as they possibly could, but at that they slid deeper.

389

"There is a [basho] of [anzen],"

“There is a place of safety,”

390

Moiraine said softly, and Rand’s [mimi] pricked up to listen.

Moiraine said softly, and Rand’s ears pricked up to listen.

391

"In [tāru] Valon you would be among Aes Sedai and [kanshu].

“In Tar Valon you would be among Aes Sedai and Warders.

392

Even during the Trolloc [sensō] the [chikara] of the [Kurai] One feared to [kōgeki] the Shining [kabe].

Even during the Trolloc Wars the forces of the Dark One feared to attack the Shining Walls.

393

The one [kokoromi] was their greatest [haiboku] until the [hijō ni] [owari].

The one attempt was their greatest defeat until the very end.

394

And [tāru] Valon holds all the [chishiki] we Aes Sedai have gathered since the [jikan] of [kyōki].

And Tar Valon holds all the knowledge we Aes Sedai have gathered since the Time of Madness.

395

Some [danpen] even [hizuke] from the [jidai] of [densetsu].

Some fragments even date from the Age of Legends.

396

In [tāru] Valon, [baai] anywhere, you will be able to learn why the Myrddraal want you.

In Tar Valon, if anywhere, you will be able to learn why the Myrddraal want you.

397

Why the [chichioya] of Lies [nozon de iru] you.

Why the Father of Lies wants you.

398

That I can [yakusoku]."

That I can promise.”

399

A [tabi] all the [michi] to [tāru] Valon was almost beyond thinking.

A journey all the way to Tar Valon was almost beyond thinking.

400

A [tabi] to a [basho] where he would be surrounded by Aes Sedai.

A journey to a place where he would be surrounded by Aes Sedai.

401

Of [mochiron], Moiraine had healed Tam – or it looked as [baai] she had; at least – [shikashi] there were all those [ie].

Of course, Moiraine had healed Tam – or it looked as if she had; at least – but there were all those stories.

402

It was uncomfortable enough to be in a [heya] with one Aes Sedai, [shikashi] to be in a [toshi] full of them...

It was uncomfortable enough to be in a room with one Aes Sedai, but to be in a city full of them...

403

And she still had not demanded her [kakaku].

And she still had not demanded her price.

404

There was always a [kakaku], so the [ie] said.

There was always a price, so the stories said.

I have to tell him.

409

He shouldn’t just [mōningu] and find me gone."

He shouldn’t just wake and find me gone.”

410

He [shikō] he heard Lan give a [tameiki] of [ando].

He thought he heard Lan give a sigh of relief.

411

He looked at the [kanshu] curiously, [shikashi] Lan’s [kao] was as expressionless as ever.

He looked at the Warder curiously, but Lan’s face was as expressionless as ever.

413

Moiraine said.

414

"I mean to go soon after full [kurai].

415

Even a [shinguru] [ichi nichi] of [chien] could be fatal.

Even a single day of delay could be fatal.

416

It will be best [baai] you [kyūka] him a [chūi shite kudasai]."

There is no must to make [monogoto] any easier for it than we must."

422

It was a [hijō ni] long [michi] to [tāru] Valon.

It was a very long way to Tar Valon.

423

“In that case...

“In that case...

424

In that case, I had [yori yoi] go find Mat and Perrin."

In that case, I had better go find Mat and Perrin.”

425

“I will attend to that.”

“I will attend to that.”

426

Moiraine got to her [ashi] briskly and donned her [gaitō] with suddenly restored [katsuryoku].

Moiraine got to her feet briskly and donned her cloak with suddenly restored vigor.

427

She put a [te] on his [kata], and he tried [hijō ni] hard not to flinch.

She put a hand on his shoulder, and he tried very hard not to flinch.

She did not [o-oshimasu] hard, [shikashi] it was an [tetsu] [gurippu] that held him as surely as a forked [sutikku] held a [hebi].

She did not press hard, but it was an iron grip that held him as surely as a forked stick held a snake.

"It will be best [baai] we [kīpu] all of this just among us.

“It will be best if we keep all of this just among us.

430

Do you understand?

Do you understand?

431

The same ones who put the [doragon]’s [kiba] on the [in] [tobira] might make [meiwaku] [baai] they knew."

The same ones who put the Dragon’s Fang on the inn door might make trouble if they knew.”

432

“I understand.”

It will be a hard [tabi] tonight even [baai] you are rested."

The [tobira] closed behind them, and Rand stood looking down at Tam – looking at Tam; [shikashi] [mite] nothing.

The door closed behind them, and Rand stood looking down at Tam – looking at Tam; but seeing nothing.

439

Not until that [hijō ni] [bun] had he realized that Emond’s [ryōiki] was a [ichibu] of him as much as he was a [ichibu] of it.

Not until that very minute had he realized that Emond’s Field was a part of him as much as he was a part of it.

441

He was apart from the [mura], now.

442

The [hitsuji kai] of the [yoru, kishi_knt] wanted him.

447

"don’t [mōningu] him, now,"

“Don’t wake him, now,”

448

[shufu] al’Vere said, as the [shichō] shut the [tobira] behind his [tsuma] and himself.

Mistress al’Vere said, as the Mayor shut the door behind his wife and himself.

449

The [nuno]-covered [torei] she carried gave off delicious, [atatakai] smells.

450

She set it on the [mune] against the [kabe], then firmly moved Rand away from the [shindai].

451

"[shufu] Moiraine told me what he needs,"

453

I’ve brought you a [hitokuchi] to eat.

454

don’t let it get [samui], now."

457

“Moiraine Sedai is proper.

She and I had a long [hanashi].

462

And [kīpu] your [koe] down.

And keep your voice down.

463

[baai] you [mōningu] Tam, you’ll have to [kotae] to me and Moiraine Sedai."

If you wake Tam, you’ll have to answer to me and Moiraine Sedai.”

464

She put an [jūten] on Moiraine’s [taitoru] that made Bran’s [shuchō] seem foolish.

She put an emphasis on Moiraine’s title that made Bran’s insistence seem foolish.

465

With a fond [egao] for her [otto], she turned to the [shindai] and Tam.

[shujin] al’Vere gave Rand a frustrated [hyōjō].

“She’s an Aes Sedai.

469

[hanbun] the [josei] in the [mura] [kōi] as [baai] she sits in the [josei]’s [sākuru], and the [nokori] as [baai] she were a Trolloc.

Half the women in the village act as if she sits in the Women’s Circle, and the rest as if she were a Trolloc.

470

Not a one of them seems to realize you have to be careful around Aes Sedai.

471

The [dansei] may [kīpu] looking at her sideways, [shikashi] at least they aren’t doing anything that might provoke her."

The men may keep looking at her sideways, but at least they aren’t doing anything that might provoke her.”

It was not too late to [kaishi, hajimeru] [kōfuku] careful.

It was not too late to start being careful.

474

"[shujin] al’Vere,"

“Master al’Vere,”

475

he said slowly, "do you know how many [nōjō] were attacked?"

476

"Only two that I’ve heard of so far, including your [basho]."

“Only two that I’ve heard of so far, including your place.”

477

The [shichō] paused, frowning, then shrugged.

The Mayor paused, frowning, then shrugged.

478

“It doesn’t seem enough, with what happened here.

“It doesn’t seem enough, with what happened here.

479

I should be glad of it, [shikashi]...

I should be glad of it, but...

480

[yoku], we’ll probably hear of more before the [ichi nichi] is out."

Well, we’ll probably hear of more before the day is out.”

481

Rand sighed.

482

No must to ask which [nōjō].

483

"Here in the [mura], did they...

484

I mean, was there anything to [shō] what they were after?"

I don’t know that they were after anything, except maybe [satsugai] us all.

I don’t know that they were after anything, except maybe killing us all.

487

It was just the [michi] I said.

The dogs barking, and Moiraine Sedai and Lan running through the streets, then somebody shouted that Master Luhhan’s house and the forge were on fire.

490

Anyway, the next [koto] the Trollocs were all among us.

491

No, I don’t think they were after anything.”

496

I [utagai] they expected to find an Aes Sedai here, or a [kanshu]."

497

“I suppose not,”

“I suppose not,”

498

Rand said, grimacing.

Rand said, grimacing.

499

[baai] Moiraine had told the [shinjitsu] about that, she probably had told the [shinjitsu] about the [nokori], too.

If Moiraine had told the truth about that, she probably had told the truth about the rest, too.

For a [shunkan] he [shikō] about asking the [shichō]’s [jogen], [shikashi] [shujin] al’Vere obviously knew little more about Aes Sedai than anyone else in the [mura].

For a moment he thought about asking the Mayor’s advice, but Master al’Vere obviously knew little more about Aes Sedai than anyone else in the village.
