Puzzles struggles to bring the object back and delivers a lion skin (a remnant from a hunting excursion beyond the edge of Narnia) to Shift.Immediately, Shift states that Aslan has sent this skin and that Puzzle should wear it.Other Calormenes shortly discovered the slayings of their countrymen and pursue Tirian into the forest.
As they travel along the river, they sight a rat, riding a raft on the river.
Puzzle dons the skin and, though not completely convincing in daylight, he does present a satisfactory illusion in dim firelight or moonlight.
Suddenly a great thunderclap knocks both animals to the ground.
As the two sit, a strange object rolls over the falls falling into Caldron Pool.
Using guilt tactics, Shift manipulates Puzzle into jumping into the pool and retrieving the item.
