Walked back to her bed, and fell like a log,supremely bored,it had been days since she had done anything worth talking about. She was back after college,lazing around the whole day pointlessly and bored. She had her mind fixed on what she had to do oncej she returned to her nest. With guests at home she had to make her burrow hallway. She dozed off and time slipped away,into the rabbit hole. She found herself in a new place. A lot of new faces, some familiar faces and then some who had changed. She found a little nest by the big yellow road behind the Indian market.
Everything was a wonder to her, the leaves on the tree, the flower on the side walk even the dogs that followed her home!
On the fourth day of her arrival she was taken to the Red Queen, of the furious persona, the subjects quivered and were frightened to talk to her. But to her amazement and amusement,the queen behaved wonderfully with little Alice. Took Alice to her little lab, showed her her place to work happily ever after, or so she thought.
Then came the mad hatter. She had seen someone like him in the real world. Unlike her, he had been in the wonderland for quite sometime. It had taken a toll on him, but every time they met he made it a point to make her laugh.
The first time, he had taken her to his little tea party at the Street. Him and the twins made it a point to make it all about the meeting. She was tired but they made it turn right about. Then she took them to her old nest.
He was mad she could see it, they walked and talked. And he saw her magic. Everything she touched turned beautifull, she tamed the scariest beast to follow her home, her delicate touch to the leaves made them emerald green. He was happy. And he would go mad when he was happy!!
The Red queen made her life miserable but some how she found ways to make it up to herself. Find joy in her little things.
And finally her Prince Valiant found her. In a ball gathering of all the creatures of the wonderland she found him. His words and acts made her just watch him in amusement.He was wise like the elder, sweet like any prince should be.
Then went to the night of the grand festival. Every creature was there the squirrels, the mice, the butterflies and all her favourite people. The mad Hatter did his crazy dance. The twins did their bit. Even the Red Queen tried to moved her body to the songs and tunes.
As Alice tried to step up with Mad Hatter, the prince walked in,held her hand, told her how the stars would shine over the woods on new moon day and how it would be his honor to hold her hand while they watched it. She din’t waste a moment to take his hand and run through the woods. Everything had ceased to exist in her mind, all she could see was them watching the stars holding hands. Before she could reach the clearing in the woods she tripped on a branch. She quickly tried to pick herself up but someone helped her.She knew it was’nt the prince.She opened her eyes and found herself at the cafe.
There were no rabbits, no squirrels, no woodland or it’s creatures. Awake from her dream, she swiped her card, smiled at the lady in the counter and walked out to the real world.
“It sure looks like a different world out here”
She heard a familiar voice. It was the Hatter, in a suit.
“Oh don’t look so surprised, I will always be around” he said as he walked away in his new attaire but the same crazy smile.
