On the Feast of Lights, Angharad and Valtrin have a conversation about their future together. Angharad has been doing some thinking about what she thinks she can and can't put up with, and has a proposal to make.
The war between Murandy and Andor has come to an end, and the Andorans as well as their supporters from the White Tower are preparing to return home. In the midst of this, Angharad seeks out Valtrin to reveal a thing or two about her plans for her future.
A bit of sparring, involving both swords and words, between a pair of swordsmen. Or rather, a swordsman and a swordswoman.
After learning that Angharad has gone riding together with his current ... fling, Renette, Valtrin rides out to catch up with the pair, as he's not entirely certain that something unfortunate won't happen to Renette.
Valtrin gets somewhat upset upon learning of his father's plans for Angharad's unborn child, and decides to confront Angharad about the matter.
