I head out of the dreary castle and back to the head stone lagoon and back to this wretched land. All around me is the dead bushes shaped like the Queen’s head. I remember the time when Alice defeated the once truly reigning beast of the land with the Queen’s honourable catchphrase; ‘’ Off with its head!’’. I remember the time when the Mad Hatter had tea all the time with the March Hare and Mallymumkin. I remember the time when the Cheshire Cat showed Alice the way to the Mad Hatter.

‘’ Be careful dear…’’ The voice booms. ‘’ She used dead person’s fingers in medicine for Alice.’’
I nod even though I know she won’t harm me. I stroll up the path, swinging my arms excitedly. I’ve always wanted to meet the White Queen in person. She always seems like the kind sister. I halt at the door and knock…201Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqVLLOgUBdM
