Peter‘s First Battle
WHILE the dwarf and the White Witch were saying this, miles away the beavers and the children were walking on hour afterhour into what seemed a delicious dream. Suddenly they stopped. They said one another.“ What was that lovely smell ? or Just listen to that thrush. They went to find the smell. But it was flowering currant and among hawthorn bushes.
They was surprised when they saw winter vanishing. They were pretty tired by now course. They change the course of the big river and turn a little to the right.. The sun got low and the light got redder and shadows got longer and the flovers began closing. They were on a green open space from they can see forest. They saw the Stone Table and found some letters of unkrown language. Suddenly they heard a strange sound of music on their right; and turning in that direction they saw what they had come to see. The childrens were shoked. They first time saw a lion Aslan
With Tree-Women and Well-Women who had stringed instruments. They look at Aslans face they just cought a glimpse of golden mane.
Aslan invited Peter to show the castle where he to be a king. Peter with his sword drawn in his hand went with the Lion to the eastern edge of the hilltop.
Peter saw forest, hillsand valleys and windding away like a silver snake.
Suddenly they heard a strange noise. It was like a bugle but richer. Aslan said “Back!
Let the Prince win his spurs. And there he saw a dreadful sight. Lucy was runing fast and fast as her short legs would carry. Her face was like a paper. Then he saw Susan make a dashfor the tree, followed by a huge grey beast. Than he realized it was a wolf a wolf standing on its hind legs. Susan was going to faint. Peter did not fell very brave; indeed, he felt he was going to be a sick. Peter was very angry. He rushed straight up to the monster and aimed a slash of his sword at its side.He had just time to duck down and pluge his sword, as hard as he could, between the brutes forelegs into its heart. That was horrible. Everything was blood and heat and hair. Lucy and Peter felt pretty shaky. He will be going to his mistress.
Quick! Quick! Shouted Aslan. Centaurs! Eagles! I see another wolf in the thickets. But suddenly swiftest creatures disappeared into the gathering darkness.
