Fic: ‘So sorry.’  
Title: So sorry.
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (movie)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During events in Prince Caspian: before they meet Caspian.
Summary: She cannot believe that the trees are just trees.

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

Watching Prince Caspian (well, part of it), I wondered if Lucy might’ve wandered briefly while they were in the forest and what she would’ve said to the trees she loved so much.

And then there was someone watching ...

Afternoon sunlight reaches into the clearing between the trees, touching each leaf, each patch it can see. In its familiar warmth, she stands, looking around to each tree surrounding her. Uncertainly, she stretches a hand out and draws it quickly back.

“They’re hiding,” she whispers. Watching, behind her, he can see the hurt etched in every part of her expression, deep in her gaze.

“She cares,” he murmurs and he ducks further into the undergrowth.

Stepping toward a tree, she cautiously lays a hand on its trunk and strokes it gently. “What happened when we left,” she whispers to its bark, “that you sleep so deeply you have become nothing but your outside?”

Tears fall, first one and then another. She flings her arms around the tree and hugs it tightly. “I’m so sorry we left,” she whispers as she looks up, fallen tears glistening on her cheeks.

His heart twists at her pain and he withdraws; he knows he intrudes on a private sorrow.

Oh Lucy ♥ This is heartwrenching. I love that Trumpkin is watching her, and how he cares!

Thank you. I watched this movie again recently (well, part of it) and I couldn't but see this small scene in my mind as I watched.

Aww. Poor Lucy. It's just a shame she'll leave again...
