From Lewis' Pen: Follow Aslan

From Prince Caspian:
“‘If you go back to the others now, and wake them up; and tell them you have seen me again; and that you must all go up at once and follow me—what will happen? There is only one way of finding out.’

'Do you mean that is what you want me to do?' gasped Lucy.

 'Yes, little one,' said Aslan.

'Will the others see you too?' asked Lucy.

'Certainly not at first,' said Aslan. 'Later on, it depends.'

'But they won't believe me!' said Lucy.

'It doesn't matter,' said Aslan….

Lucy buried her head in his mane to hide from his face. But there must have been magic in his mane. She could feel lion-strength going into her. Quite suddenly she sat up.

'I'm sorry, Aslan,' she said. 'I'm ready now.'

'Now you are a lioness,' said Aslan. 'And now all Narnia will be renewed. But come. We have no time to lose.'

He got up and walked with stately, noiseless paces back to the belt of dancing trees through which she had just come: and Lucy went with him, laying a rather tremulous hand on his mane….

'Now, child,' said Aslan, when they had left the trees behind them, 'I will wait here. Go and wake the others and tell them to follow. If they will not, then you at least must follow me alone.'”
