First page of Chapter 3

Lucy ran out of the empty room into the passage and found the other three.
“It’s all right,” she repeated, “I’ve come back.”
“What on earth are you talking about, Lucy?” asked Susan.
“Why,” said Lucy in amazement, “haven’t you all been wondering where I was?”
“So you’ve been hiding, have you?” said Peter. “Poor old Lu, hiding and nobody noticed! You’ll have to hide longer than that if you want people to start looking for you.” 

Last paragraph in Chapter 3

“Please, your Majesty,” said Edmund, “I don’t know what you mean. I’m at school – at least I was – it’s the holiday now.”
