A/N: To answer some questions yes they will all be reunited however not in England,but in Narnia and it won't be an instant huggification moment either. Edmund and Lucy remember do not know who Susan and Peter are,but that's not going to be in this chapter .
For the first time in six years,Peter and Susan were faced with boredom,it had started raining the night before and hadn't let up . Susan suggested they play a dictionary game.
"No." Peter said squelching that idea in a heartbeat,he had no desire to sit and try to figure out word origins.
"Fine,you figure something out and when you do I will be in the library reading and improving my intellegence." Susan said haughtily,she flounced out.
"Hang on,there's nothing wrong with my intellegence."Peter called after her as he followed her out the room. If one were to look at the two of them now they would not have known that these were the same children that the Professor had adopted six years ago. Susan at thirteen was one of the prettiest girls in her school,her black hair had grown and it reached just a little past her shoulders the ends curling nicely,her face was still pale,but not from hunger it was more of Snow White pale as Ivy commented one day,Susan looked like the princesses one read about in fairytales. Her eyes which used to be dull with hunger were a deep blue colour ..
Without knowing it,Peter was a heartbreaker,he had flocks of girls vying for his attention,(he of course was oblivious to this). His eyes like Susan's were blue,but he had the type of eyes that could change with his mood . he had grown in the past six years,but eight years of malnutrition could not be erased,so he would always be thin for his age. His hair could be light blond or dark blond depending on how long he was outside.
"We could explore,did you know that we've lived here six years and we haven't been in every room."Peter said
"The only room we haven't been in is the spare room upstairs and I looked in there,there's nothing in there but a wardrobe." Susan said .
"I was talking about secret passages this house is old there has to be several and wardrobes always have secret passages ."Peter said. "Unless of course you'd rather read that boring book,what is it anyway."
"Wuthering Heights", you should read it." Susan said.
They probably would have spent the rest of the day in the library reading if Betty hadn't come in to tell them that Missus Macready was bringing people over to tour the house,the Professors house was very famous and people came from miles to look at it,even after six years,Peter and Susan still weren't allowed to get in the way.
They left the library and were about to go up to their rooms when they heard voices,Peter grabbed Susan's hand and pulled her down a corridor and up some stairs. He pushed open a door and they entered the room.
Susan could see it was the spare room and she looked at her brother,"Peter James Richard Pevensie ,if this was a trick to get me into the spare room." her voice trailed off and she rubbed her arms,"Why's it so cold in here."
Peter didn't seem to hear her,he was busy staring at the wardrobe it was slightly opened and seemed to be calling his name he looked down and noticed the tiny snowflake it was just near the door of the wardrobe.
Susan seemed to realise that Peter was not listening to her and she looked up to see him walk toward the wardrobe as if in a daze,confused she followed him .
The further into the wardrobe they got the colder it was becoming and soon their teeth were chattering,Susan grabbed two coats off the hooks and handed one to Peter.
They stepped out into a world covered in white as far as the eye could see.
"This is not England." Susan whispered gazing around in disbelief it had been fall in England . This was impossible and Susan hated when things didn't fit together .
"No."Peter said,he didn't seem to be as shaken up as Susan over the fact they had stepped into a magical world and Peter for some reason knew that this place was magical.
They stood there a few minutes the snow was whiter here as if it were not a normal snow but an enchanted one(it was) .
"Peter,let's go back now!" Susan said she had a bad feeling about this place and she felt like someone was watching her.
"No,I can't explain it,but I think we have to be here."Peter said .
"Why?" Susan demanded .
"I don't know it's just a feeling I have." Peter said,he couldn't quite explain it. They started walking,but it was slow going because the snow was deep and Susan's skirts were so long and heavy,she had to keep lifting them up.
"Oh come here."Peter said exapserated. He pulled out the pocket knife the Professor had given him on his elelventh birthday .
Susan eyed the knife warily,"What are you going to do with that thing." she asked.
"I am going to cut your skirt and petticoat." Peter said
Susan backed up,"Don't you dare !" she shrieked.
"Oh stop being a baby,I won't hurt you."Peter rolled his eyes.
"You'll see my ankles."Susan said"Proper young ladies never show their ankles."
Peter looked up,"Su,I've seen your ankles before and I don't see anyone else around do you." he asked waving a hand toward the white empty something stepped out from behind a tree,Susan screamed and hid behind Peter.
"I thought there was no one here!" she cried
"I said I don't see anyone and it's just a faun."Peter said,he looked at the faun,despite the cold he was barechested and only wore a red scarf.
"Fauns don't exist." Susan said
"Yet,I see one."Peter said .
The faun spoke."Who are you and where did you come from."
"I'm Peter,that's Susan and we came from there,I think,I don't know. "Peter said.
Susan watched in surprise as Peter talked to the faun (his name they found out later was Mister Tumnus ) as easily as if he was an old friend. Normally Peter hated talking to new people unless he had to .How he could converse with amythical creature,but not a normal person she didn't know
"That's what the other two said too." said Mister Tumnus pulling Susan away from her thoughts.
"What other two?" Susan asked.
"Another Son of Adam and Daughter of Eve." explained the faun "I'll take you o them,but first we should have some light refreshments at my house."
"Don't you think we should get going now." Peter said half hour later,he looked at Susan she was nearly asleep,her plate empty . Neither of them knew it,but the food had been drugged to put them to sleep .Now Mr. Tumnus was not a bad faun not by any means,but Narnia was ruled by Jadis once ruler of Charn and she had cast a spell over Narnia making it winter forever . She warned everyone that if they ever saw a Son of Adam and Daughter of Eve they were to turn them over to her.
"We can't." wept Mister Tumnus ."I'm an awful faun."
"What have you done,why is Su sleeping."Peter asked backing up and knocking into the table that had the tea stuff on it."She's not..." his voice trailed off.
The faun raised his head,"She isn't dead,merely asleep.
"Wake her up now!" Peter cried he shook Susan,but she never stirred her head only lolled from side to side.
"Why won't she wake up."Peter asked trying not to sound as scared as he felt.
"The food was drugged and you didn't eat it only your sister did ." said Mister Tumnus sadly.
"You drugged us why?!" Peter asked .
Mister Tumnus then explained about the White Witch.
"You can't you can't just turn us over to her,I ..we trusted you."Peter said.
"No,but we can't do anything until your sister wakes up then you must go to the Beavers' Dam." Tumnus
"We don't know where that is."Peter said .
"You're not going to go alone." the faun said
"Are you?" Peter asked.
"Me no that will be too dangerous already the Trees have probably already told Her that you two are here." said . Tumnus shaking his head
"Then who?" Peter asked.
" Rynelf ,he's a fox " said .Tumnus
"But be careful not everyone can be trusted ." said,Peter looked over at Susan,she was sitting up straight rubbing her eyes.
"It's not a dream." she murmured,"I had hoped it was."
"We have to go."Peter said helping her to her feet.
"Go?" Susan asked shaking her head to clear it.
"They have arrived" a wolf scout said bowing low in front of the woman seated on the ice throne. .
The woman rose to her feet in one smooth motion,"So the prophesy has begun yes Aslan you did well,but if the four of them never meet up,then what." she asked herself. She turned to the Wolf.
"Do whatever it takes the four children must never meet and they must never remember that they are brothers and sisters." she said .
Raising both arms,she let forth a cry and a harpy came flying in,"Plague their dreams never let them see the truth. "
