I knew it was you! The whole time, I knew it. But the others didn’t believe me. And why would that stop you from coming to me? I’m sorry. I was too scared to come alone. Why wouldn’t you show yourself? Why couldn’t you come roaring in and save us like last time? Things never happen the same way twice, dear one. If I’d have come earlier, would everyone who died… could I have stopped that? We can never know what would have happened, Lillie (Lucy). But what will happen
is another matter entirely. -You mean you’ll help?
-Of course. -As will you.
-Oh, I wish I was braver. If you were any braver, you’d be a lioness. Now, I think your friends have slept long enough, don’t you?
