Daily Drabble – Door

He only went through the door because Livy was convinced they would find Narnia, whilst Kate was sure there was a secret garden.
Neither was right, although there was a garden of sorts, and there were wolves and beavers. Unfortunately the beavers didn’t talk and the wolves rather fancied child flesh for dinner.
To his surprise, he could fight better here than at home and the girls became brave instead of femininely timorous.
When they had fought their way back to the door, Mother waited just the other side of the wall.
“Thou art a man now,” she said proudly.
