They certainly seemed to have no fear of Aiel, not at the chance to lay a finger on Rand's boots, and their numbers were such, the pressure of hundreds shoving them forward, that some managed to wriggle through.
Казалось, люди почти не испытывали страха перед айильцами, лишь бы хоть пальцем коснуться сапога Ранда, а желающих было столько - и напор страждущих подталкивал их вперед, - что некоторым удавалось протиснуться через кольцо Дев.
