[an extract] The Horse and his Boy

“I was the lion.” And as Shasta gasped with an open mouth and said nothing, the Voice continued. “I was the lion who forced you to join with Aravis. I was the cat who comforted you among the horses of the dead. I was the lion who drove the jackals from you while you slept. I was the lion who gave the horses new strength of fear the last mile so that you should reach King Lune in time. And I was the lion you do not remember who pushed the boat in which you lay, a child near death, so that it came to shore where a man sat, wakeful at midnight to receive you.”
– C.S. Lewis, The Horse and his Boy
