The Childlike Empress:
Atreyu, why do you look so sad?

Atreyu:
I have failed you, Empress.

The Childlike Empress:
No, you haven't. You brought him with you.

Atreyu:
Who?

The Childlike Empress:
The earthling child. The one who can save us all.

Atreyu:
You knew about the earthling child?

The Childlike Empress:
Of course. I knew everything.

Atreyu:
My horse died! I nearly drowned, I just barely got away from the Nothing! For what?! To find out what you already knew?!

The Childlike Empress:
It was the only way to get in touch with an earthling.

Atreyu:
But I didn't get in touch with an earthling!

The Childlike Empress:
Yes, you did. He has suffered with you. He went through everything you went through, and now he has come here with you. He is very close, listening to every word, we say.

Bastian:
What?!

Atreyu:
Where is he? If he's so close, why doesn't he appear?

The Childlike Empress:
He doesn't realize he's already a part of The NeverEnding Story.

Atreyu:
"The NeverEnding Story"? What's that?

The Childlike Empress:
Just as he is sharing all your adventures, others are sharing his. They were with him when he hid from the boys in the bookstore.

Bastian:
But that's impossible!

The Childlike Empress:
They were with him when he took the book with the Auryn symbol on the cover, in which he's reading his own story, right now.
