Chapter 11 - Aslan Is Nearer

                                                      The Chronicles of Narnia - Chapter 11

Edmund meanwhile had been having a most disappointing time. The witch didn’t like him, he didn’t like the food and he even somehow managed to look bad in witches eyes. The witch wanted to go kill  Lucy , Peter and Susan by a sledge, but Edmund only wanted to be the king, he didn’t want to kill them. Before they left witch gathered the wolfs and sent them to go first.  They were riding in the dark and cold forest , but suddenly the witch spotted something. And she said : 
Well, well, well. What do we have here ? As she said these words to little animals , because they were throwing a party. With a lot of new glasses , plates , forks and spoons. What is the meaning of this. Asked the white witch. 

-Please you majesty, we we’re given them. Said the Fox , who had bravery to speak to the witch.

But the witch was to rude to forgive them , as always.. And so she turned them into stones. After that Edmund for the first time felt sorry not just for himself, but also for the little poor animals.

Now they were steadily racing on again. Soon Edmund noticed that the sledge was going slower and the weather was getting warmer and warmer. He felt a bit strange. At that very moment the sledge started to grind something ( Edmund guessed that it was rocks ) , and soon they crashed into something. And they didn’t crash so bad , it was only a lot of snow. Witches dwarf tried to dig out the sledge from the snow , but he was to weak ( or there was too much snow ) .

In the mean time the white witch said :
-Don’t sit staring, fool! Get out and help.
And of course Edmund had to obey , he stepped out of the sledge and helped the dwarf. But the sledge was to damaged to go further. So they decided to go by they’re feet. When they kept walking , every minute the forest’s started to look greener and greener, the weather was also getting warmer and warmer. He saw a waterfall , and on that waterfall was growing snowflakes , but the dwarf didn’t let him look anymore.  

Suddenly , the sky turned blue, there were birds everywhere, and it seemed that the trees were coming alive also. The dwarf quickly said :
-This is spring , this is Aslan doing, i tell you !!

Imagine you are Edmund in CHAPTER 11 -- how do you feel when you see all the changes in nature? Are you afraid of Aslan? Why/why not? How do you react to the White Witch's behaviour?

If i was in Edmund's body. I would fell like i was disturbing everything , the witch din't like me , i somehow managed to look bad in her eyes. And because of the nature i was a bit schocked , but in the end i knew that it was Aslan , so i was ready to face him. Even thought i only wanted to be the king, and also i wanted for Lucy , Peter and Susan to be my slaves.
