Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

This has been in mind for a little while and I felt I should finally write it.

All characters contained herein are the intellectual property of C. S. Lewis as well as Andrew Adamson, Ann Peacock, Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (their interpretations); I am not affiliated with nor endorsed by his estate.


Pulling her cloak closer about her, she sits and cradles the back of the Faun’s head with a gentle hand. The vial is tipped and a single drop falls.

She hears the laboured breathing. She can feel the dried blood in his hair; his helmet had been knocked off during the battle. As she waits, she eases the crisp white bandages across his chest; someone had been tending to the wounded while they waited. She leans closer, to listen to his breathing.

A sudden gasp and she breathes a sigh of deep relief; for a very long moment, she’d thought he’d died as the drop fell across his lips.

“T-th-tha-thank ...”

She lays her fingers across dried lips; flakes of his blood fall away. “Shh,” she whispers. “Simply rest and get better.”

He nods and swallows, watching as she rises and walks to the next person.
