Stories say Susan never returned to Narnia, but stories lie because growing up isn’t the same as losing faith. Aslan knows that even if her siblings don’t.
She follows her heart home, time and again, and after the train she visits the void they left behind. Aslan comes to her, as he always does, and doesn’t explain. She wouldn’t let him if he tried.
Happy endings are for stories.
She rebuilds their Narnia with Lucy’s wild joy, Peter’s fierce loyalty, Edmund’s sharp drive, and her faith… until it’s her turn for further up and further in.
This time Narnia remains.
