Richard leaves Mistress Sanderholt and starts finding his way to set few things right at Aydindril .. Using the tall buildings and his skills of being a Woods Guide, he makes his way through the huge city of the Confessors and Wizards.. He, however, no longer takes himself as a Woods Guide anymore as he has realised that he is the one who has to take responsibility of setting the world in the order it should be in.
Lost in the thoughts of Kahlan Richard walked into the a column of Nicobarese soldiers. The General of the troop yelled at him that he delayed them from urgent business of stopping the Keeper . Richard told him that he is also fighting Keeper and hence is at their side. The General became furious at his reply and wated to interrogate him. Suddenly Richard was lifted by two very strong and muscular hands by his arms. The uniforms of the people who lifted him suggested that they are D’Harans. He tried to say something but a hand of one of his captors clasped at his mouth and took him into a narrow passageway where he found four cloaked figures waiting for him.
