Eustachio si mise a ridere, una risata diversa dalle solite che conosceva Edmund, e sfilò il bracciale senza difficoltà. — Eccolo. Se lo prenda chi vuole, per quello che mi riguarda. Come stavo dicendo, non riuscivo a prendere sonno e mi chiedevo che fine avrei mai fatto, quando... no, forse è stato solo un sogno. Non so. — Avanti, continua — lo incitò Edmund, paziente. — Insomma, alzo gli occhi e vedo l'ultima cosa che mi sarei aspettato di vedere: un enorme leone che mi veniva incontro.

Oggi, dopo chissà quanto tempo, sono ricomparsi i gabbiani. 11 settembre Pescati un po' di pesci e mangiati a cena. Verso le sette di sera, gettata l'ancora in una baia di quest'isola montagnosa.
