Crossroads of Twilight: Chapter 1
Author: Andra Mikolan
Chapter Icon: Five dice, arranged in a ring
Point of View: Mat
Mat thinks about how he managed to escape Ebou Dar.
Mat and Noal are on the banks of the Eldar River, outside the city of Ebou Dar. Mat is watching the clean-up of the port and harbour. He recalls his escape from the city six days before with Egeanin, Domon, Noal, Vanin, three Aes Sedai, and three sul'dam, as well as the kidnapped Tuon and Selucia. They were almost caught at the gate, but the escaping Sea Folk had provided a distraction.
Egeanin arrives at the riverbank, ordering them back to the camp. She and Mat are pretending to be lovers as they stroll past Seanchan settlers leaving the city for new homes.
