Aslanites are on the move

The queen lost all composure, "Aslan! Are you sure they mentioned Aslan?!"

Edmund shrank back, "Yes your-"

"Did they say anything about a stone table?" Edmund said nothing, "Quickly, boy!"

Edmund said a weak, "Yes."

The Queen was on the move, shouting orders and packing up objects Edmund didn't recognize, "Ready my sleigh. Gather our forces. Send out the Crows. Tell them to contact every solider, every spy, every civilian and give orders to slow down those Beavers. Whatever it takes stop them from getting to the table," a large Bat landed next to her, "Take this," she handed it her wand, "At a hillock near the table, the one that stands alone to the south east, you'll find a tunnel leading to a secret chamber where some of our greatest warriors wait in stone. Wake them. Tell them the Aslanites are on the move and they have children of Adam. Tell them to hold the line until I arrive."

"Yes your majesty," the Bat said and, taking the wand in his feet, flew away.

The queen turned to a Wolf, "We don't have time to organize, get everyone on the move. We'll meet at the table. We have to stop those Beavers."

"And when we stop them," the Wolf asked, "may we eat them?"

For a moment the queen was speechless, then she said, "Yes. Anyone involved in the sacrifice is fair game."

The Wolf smiled, bowed, and ran from the room.

The queen looked around the room, quickly, to see if she had forgotten anything, then told Edmund, "We're leaving."

Edmund took a step back, "I don't understand."

"And I don't have time." She picked Edmund up and hurried towards her sled.

When they were underway Edmund nervously asked, "What's going on?"

"The Beavers intended to sacrifice your brother and sisters. Their blood will bring Aslan back." Edmund's eyes grew wide and for the first time in his life he felt pure terror, "Don't worry. We're going to save them. We don't have much of a choice, the world depends on it."
