This is explained in chapter eight, “wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sight…” (Lewis 74). As Christ is the center of Christianity, Aslan is implied as the center of Narnia.

The backyard consists of two halves: the concrete path with a hutch housing rabbits and a grass yard with a brown, stone fire pit. A constant air of music plays from the wind chimes that hang from a vine-covered terrace separating the two areas. We take the…

    Chapter Thirteen A Girl Named Mischief My eyes darted around the dark, my heart racing. Were Bane and his henchmen on the other side searching for someone small enough to slip between the stones. An ice-cold cable wrapped its way down my spine. Or were they waiting for me outside, sitting on the edge of the cliff casting pebbles into the canyon? I backed out from between the rocks and flew through the muddled mineshafts, using the footprints I had scribbled on the stones to negotiate the…
