1058 words - 4 pages

There had been great deal of strife in the land of Narnia and King Aslan and his loyal knights sought a place where they could relocate to escape all of the troubles that were facing them. Each had heard of a new land where they might live happily.
Sir Tumnus the Impulsive thought that they should look for the Land of Matrix where people saw things as they really were.
Sir Beaver the Loquacious interrupted (for the twentieth time) and suggested a land of Witchcraft and Wizardry where everybody chatted happily. Aslan silenced them both with a growl.
Sir Sunmut rubbed his pointed ears and suggested that it would be logical to find a place that offered the same benefits as Narnia but without the overabundance of natural resources that were just waiting for invaders to come and seize. Scarafa on the other hand, sneered and said “Where in the world would a desolate, uninspiring place like that exist.”
Simba sheepishly raised his paw and stammered, “What about the great southern land, Orstralia? Nobody in their right mind would want to go there.”
“Err… you mean Australia?” Aslan questioned.
Sir Beaver quickly chimed in “Well of course Australia is a good place bu-“
“Ye, Yes Sir” Simba stuttered.
Upon hearing this, Aslan walked off to his chambers deep in thought.
“Oh good job Simba, now it’ll take at least a week before he’ll come to a decision” Scarafa said cuttingly.
Intimidated, Simba slunk lower into his chair while every one other than Sir Sunmut burst into a frenzy of argument. Suddenly, a roar emanated from the chamber of secrets, halting the fight. Aslan soon came out of the chamber in his sleeping gown. He proclaimed, “We will be leaving first thing tomorrow. Knights please prepare to set out by sunrise tomorrow, and we shall meet again here.”
The next morning, King Aslan’s scouts had finally returned with news of the legendary Wall known to teleport those that walk through it away from Narnia. Before setting out for this journey Aslan called upon the faun lord, the King of men and the Beaver Emperor, presenting them with three rings. With those rings, came great power that allowed them to rule the country in Aslan’s absence and with those great powers come great responsibilities. Knowing this Aslan secretly created a Wand, the Elder Wand, which would control the rings if death was ever to approach them. With his last efforts to keep his country safely from harm completed, Aslan and his knights left on their journey to the great southern land, Australia.
It took two days and two nights before the brave knights of the Narnian table had finally reached the fabled wall that would be responsible for teleporting them to their new world.
“FINALLY, the time has come for us to travel to a new world!” cried Aslan.
As usual, Beaver whinged, “Yes, yes now can we please hurry up I need to go back to see my wife and we have already walked quite far. In fact one more step and it will be nine thousand steps. “
“Okay Beaver, we’ve...
