Prologue

On a rainy afternoon in the winter of 1935 a small girl of age 5 named Amelia Anderson was sitting bored in the parlor toys scattered around none of which could interest Amelia as she was trying to figure out what moving meant doing so she was staring out the window.

Her blond hair reached her shoulders and her blue stood questioning, when she heard the front door open she jumped up and ran towards the front door, avoiding all the toys in her way yelling: “Daddy!!!”

Her father opened his arms and caught her saying: “Amelia, full as energy as always I see.” he said.

“Daddy what does moving mean?” She asked.

“Oh, so your mother told you, it means that we're going to a new house in a new city.” He answered.

“Are Olivia and Alexis coming?” Amelia asked wondering if her friends would be coming.

“Um... No sweetie but you'll make new friends.” Her father said as Amelia started squirming until her father placed her on the ground.

“What if I don't want new friends!” She yelled running up the stairs almost tripping on the 6th step and shutting the heavy door of her room.

“What are we going to do Maria?” He asked.

“I don't know Frank.” She said going to pack even more kitchen supplies.

One week later

“Well here we are, Finchley.” Frank said with a smile on his face.

He got out the car and opened the door for Amelia who got out of the car.

Maria had already gone and opened the door to the new house and she called from inside:

“Amelia why don't you come and look.”

And so Amelia did even if she didn't want to.

“So what do you think?” Maria asked.

I liked our old house better” Amelia thought but said: “It's nice mommy.”

And then ran out to the garden which was pretty big and had a swing.

She ran to the swing and started swinging, she absolutely LOVED swings.

It was only then she noticed a hole in the hedge and a boy her age peeking his head through it. She looked at him but didn't dare get off the swing.

“Oh hello.” The boy said coming through the hedge now.

“I'm Edmund and you are?” He said like the garden was his, outstretching his hand.

“I'm Amelia.” She said a little shy. “Nice to meet you.”

“Nice to meet...” Edmund started before getting interrupted by an another boys voice.

“ED! Where are you mommy wants you inside the new neighbors are here and they're coming over!”

“That's my older brother Peter, I better go, see you later.” Edmund said waving as he disappeared again.

“Amelia get inside now.” She heard her father yell and ran inside still shocked by Edmund's sudden appearance.

Pevensie's house

“Ed, where were you?” Peter asked.

“In the garden.” He said.

“The neighbors are going to be here any minute and you're not even dressed yet.” His mother said picking him up and carrying his to his room getting out his best clothes.

“Mommy I don't want to wear these clothes.” Edmund said pouting.

“But you have to look your best for the new neighbors, did you know they have a girl your age.” Helen (Mrs. Pevensie) said.

“Yes, I met her in the garden.” Edmund said.

“What?” Helen asked stopping her attempts to flatten his hair.

“I went through the hole in the hedge. Her name is Amelia.” He said.

“Edmund you can't go through that hole anymore now they live there.” Helen said looking him in the eye.

“Ok.” He said nodding his head and jumping of the bed.

“Let's go downstairs I bet they're going to be here any minute.” Helen said and true to her words two minutes later the Anderson family was knocking on their door.

“Oh please come in.” George (Mr. Pevensie) said.

“Thank you I'm Frank and this is my wife Maria and my daughter Amelia.” Frank said coming into the house carrying Amelia.

“Why don't we go the parlor?” Helen suggested.

“Sound good to me.” Maria said.

“Well this is our home and just so you know you are welcome here at anytime.” Helen said to the Anderson family.

“There are our children Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.” She continued pointing to each child.

“Kids this is Amelia why don't you kids go play together while we talk.” George said getting a round of okay's for all the children.

“Me Lucy!” Lucy said to Amelia as the parents left.

“I'm Amelia.” She answered.

“Hi I'm Peter I'm sorry about Lucy, don't mind her she's has a lot of energy.” He said.

“Alright.”

“I'm Susan I'm sure we're going to be great friends.” She said with a bit too much excitement.

Amelia answered by nodding and then taking a look at what Edmund was doing him being the only one she knew from before.

“Ed, introduce yourself.” Peter said sorta scolding.

“I don't need to I met her in the garden before.” He said taking a red pencil in his hand and outstretching it to Amelia who smiled and took the pencil sitting down on the other side of Edmund and started coloring a heart.

“Thanks, Eddie.” Amelia said making Edmund's eyes go wide no-one had ever called him that.

“You're welcome, Am.” He said smiling deciding he like the nickname.

And she laughed at that never having had a nickname before, and with that a great friendship begun.
