From Lewis' Pen: But He's Good

From The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe:
"You'll understand when you see him."

"But shall we see him?" asked Susan.

'Why, Daughter of Eve, that's what I brought you here for. I'm to lead you where you shall meet him,' said Mr. Beaver.

'Is—is he a man?' asked Lucy.

'Aslan a man!' said Mr. Beaver sternly. 'Certainly not. I tell you he is the King of the wood and the son of the great Emperor-beyond-the-Sea. Don't you know who is the King of Beasts? Aslan is a lion—THE Lion, the great Lion.'

'Ooh!' said Susan, 'I'd thought he was a man. Is he—quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion.'

'That you will, dearie, and no mistake,' said Mrs. Beaver; 'if there's anyone who can appear before Aslan without their knees knocking, they're either braver than most or else just silly.'

'Then he isn't safe?' said Lucy.

'Safe?' said Mr. Beaver; 'don't you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.'”
