Could you imagine Caspian coming over to England in Aslan’s Country? Caspian, who loved the idea of a world round like a ball from the fairytales he heard growing up, and who said he’d give anything to live in one, but who only got to spend five minutes on Earth. And then the Pevensies bring him around to their family home for tea and he’s wide-eyed and fascinated by everything.
He sees cars and trains and planes and he’s dumbstruck because he could’ve flown to the End of the World. When he proposes a plan to fly to see the end of this world, Lucy has to gently remind him that this world doesn’t have an end, although there are lots of other countries to see if he’d like. He stares at the globe Lucy shows him and he cannot believe how big the world is and how he’s so glad that he has an eternity to see it all.
That’s when Edmund realises how naïve he is and he cannot resist handing Caspian a bottle of soft drink and telling him to shake before opening it to make it taste better, or tricking him into putting his fingers in a finger trap and watching him struggle for an hour on the verge of tears. Then Peter joins in and gives him a snake in a can, which makes Caspian shriek. Lucy, who has been watching, scolds them and tells them they should both be ashamed of their simplistic, juvenile pranks… before revealing a giant bucket filled to the brim with water balloons. The four of them end up soaking wet and breathless with laughter by the time they return home and Caspian has had the time of his life and can’t wait to explore more of this world that made the Pevensies as wonderful as they are.
Honestly, how beautiful would it be to see Caspian on Earth like he always dreamed?
what about susan who got married and had a child while in narnia, and then returned to england as a child, a whole life and family left behind?
