"Eleanor!" Looking horribly embarrassed, the woman turned to the bemused Pevensies. "I'm sorry, my daughter has a somewhat...overactive imagination. She's asking about your favourite game of pretend."
Susan was already watching, with a touch of disbelief, for the hidden flinch so caught the secretive smile, and felt her heart quicken. Her parents were already laughing, and talking about the games she and her siblings were forever playing after the war. Her pulse was a roaring in her ears, because she knew the look in Eleanor West's eyes as well as the other girl could see into hers, because her own well meaning mother was saying "...some fantastical thing with talking animals and unicorns, where was it set darling?"
"Narnia," she murmured, voice perfectly light, inconsequential, "we called it Narnia." Her parents nodded, unconcerned, and they were all chuckling over the vivid imaginations of children and her pulse was screaming in her ears, and then the girl before her was looping and arm through hers and tugging her towards the door, asking permission to be excused so she could show Susan the grounds for a bit and leave the adults to it.
