â€œPlease, Aslan,â€ said Lucy. â€œBefore we go, will you tell us when we can come back to Narnia again? Please. And oh, do, do, do make it soon.â€
â€œDearest,â€ said Aslan very gently, â€œyou and your brother will never come back to Narnia.â€
â€œOh, Aslan!â€ said Edmund and Lucy both together in despairing voices.
â€œYou are too old, children,â€ said Aslan, â€œand you must begin to come close to your own world now.â€
â€œIt isnâ€™t Narnia, you know,â€ sobbed Lucy. â€œItâ€™s you. We shanâ€™t meet you there. And how can we live never meeting you?â€
â€œBut you shall meet me, dear one,â€ said Aslan.
â€œAreâ€”are you there too, Sir?â€ said Edmond.
â€œI am,â€ said Aslan. â€œBut there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.â€
