Finally he acknowledged his plan to report Lucy to the one who pretended to be the queen of Narnia, also known as the White Witch but finally let Lucy leave. When returning to our world, Lucy's brothers did not believe her about Narnia. But her brother, Edmund, went into the closet, to Narnia, and met the White Witch, who claimed to be the "Queen of Narnia" friends with Edmund by offering Turkish Sweets that Edmund liked very much. The Witch told Edmund to bring his brothers to Narnia with the confectionary reply again. Lucy meets Edmund in Narnia and they return to Professor Kirke's house. From Lucy's story, Edmund realized that the woman she met was a White Witch, but did not tell anyone about it. She even denied Peter and Susan that she had entered Narnia, when Lucy told them about it. The four of them still entered the world of Narnia while hiding in a closet and meeting beavers who could talk there. The beaver tells a prophecy that two children will come Adam and two Eve children who will defeat the White Witch and fill four thrones at Cair Paravel.
