Egg has been waiting for Tyldak and Kahvi. He unwinds a tale of the fate of Blue Mountain for them, and even allows Kahvi to see herself from within his intricately woven egg.
He reveals that he was able to commune with Timmain inside the egg of Blue Mountain, while his physical form slept and remained under the subversion of Winnowill.
Egg allows Kahvi to stare into his egg, as if it were a crystal ball used to foresee all events. She begins to remember a time when she challenged her father Two-Spear for the right to lead the Gobacks.
