DEEP MAGIC FROM THE DAWN OF TIME
Now we must get back to Edmund, said the white witch. And Edmund was just sitting there so tired , he even forgot that he was really thirsty and hungry. The witch and dwarf were talking close to him , but he was too tired to hear anything , besides they were talking in low tones. At that moment with a rush and a snarl a wolf rushed up to them and said : - I have seen them , they are all at the Stone Table, with Him. They have killed my captain , fly fly!-No, said the white witch. We will fight ! Gather all the ghouls , giants , werewolwes , spirits of those trees who are on our side , boggles , ogres and the minotaurs !Edmund found himself being roughly forced to his feet. The dwarf quickly pulled him , undid Edmunds collar and folded back his shirt at the neck. Then he took Edmunds haird and pulled his head back so that he had to raise his chin. He lost his mind.Edmund woke up later , something was holding him , they gave him vine and said that he is going to be alright. When he standed up he realised that those things ( animals ) , were Aslans rescue party.As soon as they breakfasted they all went out, and there they saw Aslan and Edmund walking together. Edmund shook hands with each of the others and said - Im sorry.That very moment , a leopard came to Aslan and said that the dwarf wants to talk to him. Aslan accepted him , and he said that the white witch wants to meet Aslan at the gate. ( of course Aslan didn't go alone , he took his friends with him )Aslan went to talk to the white witch , the white which started to talk about the deep magic , but seems that Aslan has forgotten it. Mr beaver tried to speak also , but aslan said - Peace, Beaver - with a very slow growl.But at the last moment , the white witch wanted to talk to Aslan alone.Aslan said yes to her choice and said to fall back to his friends.Lucy quickly came to Aslans ear and said : - Can't we - i mean you, won't you ? will you ? Can't we do something about the deep magic? Isn't there something you can work against it ?But Aslan just turned away , as if he didn't hear that at all.So Aslan talked to the white witch alone , but at last they heard his voice :- You can all come back, i have settled the matter.
2. Answer these questions
a) Why did Aslan's creatures, that came to save Edmund, could not find the Witch?
Aslan's rescue party couldn't find the white witch because she escaped.
b) What do you think Aslan told Edmund?
I think Aslan was talking to him about his past , the things that he did wrong.

The stone table was used to kill everybody who was a traitor.
The five words are :

traitor - isdavikas - Someone who betrays his friends , family and etc.
