New Spring: Chapter 11
Author: Atarah al'Norahn
Just Before Dawn
Chapter Icon: Flame of Tar Valon
Point of View: Moiraine
Setting: The White Tower
Before dawn, seven Aes Sedai, one from each Ajah, come to get Moiraine and Siuan from their respective rooms. They go downstairs to the room where they were tested. Waiting in the room are the three Sitters of every Ajah, as well as two other sisters from every Ajah, each with a shawl over her arm in case Moiraine or Siuan choose their Ajah.
After a bit of ritual talk (stating names and reasons for being there, etc.), first Moiraine and then Siuan swear the Three Oaths. Once that is done, both of them choose the Blue Ajah and receive their shawls. All of the Blue Sisters in the room welcome them. Eadyth, one of the Sitters, charges Leane Sharif and Rafela Cindal, the two non-Sitter Blues, with the task of escorting Moiraine and Siuan to the Blue quarters. When they arrive, they find every Blue sister currently in Tar Valon wrapped in their shawls and lining the main corridor.
