Author's note: I'm so sorry guys, I know it's been like forever since I've updated and I don't really like this chapter, but I thought I should get something up. I just wanted to tell you why it's been so long, first off I had really bad writers block and then I was in a car accident with my brother and was in a coma for almost a month. My brother didn't make it; he died two days after the accident from lung collapse. So I didn't feel like writing this sorry for a long time because of what it's about and I could bring myself to write anything for a long time. Anyway I'm back at it now, but don't count on updates daily or anything but I will do my best to update as often as I can. Okay I'm done, here's chapter four.
Susan jolted when she felt a hand on her shoulder, she had fallen asleep in one of the waiting room chairs she opened her eyes to see her father looking at her, managing a small smile as he looked at her.
"Susan, Peter's out of surgery, the doctor said we can see him now," Mr. Pevensie said.
Susan was on her feet in a matter of seconds, "Where is he, is he awake?"
"He's just down the hall, your mother is already with him, yes he's awake but he is very tired," Mr. Pevensie said gently pulling Susan up.
"So he's going to be alright?" Susan asked as she followed him down the hall.
"Yes, the doctor said that he will live, but Susan-," Mr. Pevensie began.
"But what?" Susan asked fear entering her eyes again.
"He-the doctor said that Peter's back muscles were damaged, and his legs were crushed," Mr. Pevensie said sounding terrified.
Susan didn't know what to say, she had never seen her father look so scared, it was her father after all, "Meaning what?"
"Susan, Peter is going to live, but he's never going to walk again, his legs and his back muscles are useless now," Mr. Pevensie said as they neared the room.
"What?" Susan asked stopping dead in her tracks.
"Susan-we need to go see Peter, he needs us right now. He especially needs you, and I think you know that," Mr. Pevensie said as he put his hand on the door but before he could open it, Susan stopped him.
"Wait-does Peter know about Lucy and Edmund?" Susan asked looking up at her father.
Mr. Pevensie looked down and sighed, he looked back at Susan and slowly nodded, "Your mother and I told him, that was when he asked for you, that's why you need to see him, you need to be strong for him Susan. I know its going to be hard, but you need to be strong."
Susan slowly nodded, swallowing down the tears that were threatening to fall. Just as the doctor opened the door, and smiled, "I'm glad to see you Susan, Peter has been asking for you."
Susan nodded, and slowly passed the doctor and her father as she entered the room. What she saw made her want to cry even more, but she held them back. Peter was attached to so many wires the only thing that Susan could tell that Peter was really awake was the fact that he was looking right at her, with fresh tears on his cheeks.
"Susan, its good to see you little sister," Peter said when some more tears escaped down his cheeks.
"You too," Susan said unable to say anything else, she gently reached over and gave Peter a small hug.
Peter and Susan pulled away from each other and managed small smiles at each other, neither one of them, releasing the other.
"Remember Sue, Ed and Lu aren't in pain anymore, they are with Aslan now," Peter said as he turned his head to see Susan better, his hand never leaving her hand.
Susan stared at her brother, here he was paralyzed, their brother and sister were dead, and he was saying they were in Narnia, "Peter, you Aslan was just in our imagination, why do you keep bringing that up? Especially now!"
"Susan, I'm not just bringing this up, its true, you have to believe me, Lu and Ed are fine, they're home, and someday, so will we will be too," Peter said as some more tears fell as he slowly fell asleep clutching Susan's hand.
Susan held Peter's hand to her chest, she couldn't believe what her brother was saying. Though deep down she was wondering if he was telling the truth. Maybe-he had seen Aslan, maybe Peter had scarified Edmund, Lucy and his ability to walk for her.
