On each face, in this demented place, children have never been so vile.
Cannot say they have thoughts and dreams, although you can see their brain,

In a horrible place, a terrified face, but their expresion will never show.

Alice wondered through Wonderland, deep in her thoughts she barely noticed when she reached an old stone bridge. The bridge was mostly intact but some large stone blocks were missing and she had to float to the other side. There she was greeted by Cheshire, with his usual creepy and widespread smile. He was about to tell her another riddle but she interrupted him with a question.
"I've been thinking Cat, why do you look so different than when I visited Wonderland when I was a child?" she said placing her hands behind her back.
"Our physical appearance is what makes us different but it is not what defines us." he replied, waving his tail. "We are defined by our mind and what we deep worthy of mentioning from it, to other people. Thus I haven't changed just your perception of me has."
Alice raised her eyebrow to his reply, half surprised to not hear another riddle in his answer and half glad to hear it that way. This however made her remember London and the very reason she came to Wonder

What's wrong Alice?
Why are you crying, I thought I promised to stop those tears?
Come here my sweet little Alice and tell my why you weep.
My heart breaks when you cry, you are my one and only.
When you cry, I cry.
Tell me why you are crying.
You tell me someone has hurt you.
I start to cry and you look up in surprise.
You ask why I am crying.
I say I have failed you; I wasn't able to protect you my sweet little Alice.
Your tears slow to a crawl and a small smile comes across your face.
You tell me that I am no failure to you.
That you love this mad old, hat maker.
You look into my tear filled eyes and I feel the love that you hold for me.
I pull you into my arms ever so tightly, and kiss you.
I pull my lips away and promise to never let another person hurt you.
That you will never cry while I hold you in my arms and that I never,
Plan to let you go.

She leaned against it in attempt the keep the annoyingly sneezing duchess and her psycho maid, who kept throwing every single object at everyone, inside the house. She knew they wouldnt leave their spot from the kitchen, but with all the madness happening in there was enough to drive even her insane. Closing her blue eyes she let in a deep breath of the windy air to relax her nerves, and sighed out loudly. This wonderland of a world was getting on her nerves. Nothing made any sense to her and she always ended up getting into more trouble then she already was. God help me.The Cheshire Prince5 years ago in Teen More Like This
It looks like a lonesome girl is troubled, said a purr rumbling sound of a voice. Alice looked around her but saw no one in sight. Puzzled she walked up to the gate and looked around again. If youre looking for a voice then all you have to do is look up. The mysterious voice said to her confusion.

Alice In ZombielandThere was an Alice in ZombielandAlice In Zombieland1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
She wasnīt a girl
She was a creepy little thing
She liked horror stories
From Mad Heartless King
She ate a lot of "Eat me" biscuits
But it didnīt work,
How can be possible for a dead, to grow up?
There was an Alice in Zombieland
She tried to eat a dirty white rat
She followed it into a cave
Where a bloody cat attacked the plague
Its smile was horrific
The blood and the bones were easy to see
It spoke in a grave tone
"You need to go to the red queen court"
There was an Alice in Zombieland
She used to walk through ways
Without a think in its head
Almost a broken bottle that say
"Drink it" in it
She and her seams were unleashed
Their sharp teeth and its eyes spiraling
An apron worn, rotting at the end of the tea party.

You have returned to Wonderland.
I can't be more pleased; please come and
Have a cup with this old hatter.
You have come back a woman, I see.
But me I haven't changed. I'm the same
As when you left Wonderland.
That smile of yours forces time forward.
You look at me with those beautiful eyes
And I melt in my seat. You tell me of your life.
There is a pause in your story.
I look up and see that you have begun to weep.
I jump from my seat, spilling all the tea.
"What's wrong?" I ask.
"I just missed you so much" you reply.
I pull you into my arms and whisper,
"You never have to leave my arms ever again"
You look up at me and kiss me.
Just a little peck, but it shook my whole world.
My heart stopped for a second, and I leaned in,
To kiss you back. It's a salty sweet taste.
I love it and I love you my little Alice.
If this hatter has gone mad than I never want to be sane.

Eyes the color of crimson
Clothes black like nightingales
Chalky white skin
With disinterested gaze
Hair dark blood and disarray
Claws covered with malice
The kitty smells evil bringers
To hurt its lost master
The calm but volatile cat
Protects its masters harsh memories
From the master herself
But you job is done
Go to sleep
And perish within your maze

("If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense")
("Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't")
I invite you to a world where there is no such thing as time
And every creature lends themselves to change your state of mind
And the girl that chased the rabbit, drank the wine, and took the pill
Has locked herself in limbo to see how it truly feels
To stand outside your virtue
No one can ever hurt you
Or so they say
Her name is Alice (Alice)
She crawls into the window
Through shapes and shadows
And even though she's dreaming, she knows
Sometimes the curiosity can kill the soul but leave the pain
And every ounce of innocence is left inside her brain
And through the looking glass we see she's painfully returned
But now off with her head I fear is everyone's concern
You see there's no real ending
It's only the beginning
Come out and play
Her name is Alice (Alice)
She crawls into the window
Through shapes and shadows

How are you? I have been missing you so much, my heart hurts so much when I can't see your smile it kills me not to have you in my arms for even a second. I need you in my life or there isn't a life for this old hatter. I only feel real when I feel your lips against mine. The warm caress of your body against mine. You are so perfect, god I can't even begin to tell you how much you mean to me. I love you so much and want to see your beautiful face and hear your angelic voice. You are my perfect puzzle piece. Finally this insane old man has something anchoring him to this land. Before you I didn't have a reason to call it by name because for me it wasn't. It was a world that I was but I did not live there not until you came into my life. You are the reason for my happiness; I never believed that it was possible for me to be as happy as I am. You are so beautiful, you take my breath away every time I get to see your face. You are so kind, worrying that you

"GABBY! GIVE ME BACK MY CEREAL!!" Demise screamed at Gabby who was standing on the table eating his breakfast. It was only 7am so not many people were up.
"I like your cereal better," Gabby whined, continuing to slurp it down. "I'll make you a deal, I'll leave you the milk, okay?"
"NO! NOW GIMME MY CEREAL!!" He screamed and lunged at Gabby, who simply stepped down off the table and finished his cereal in her room. Demise picked himself up off the table when there was a loud thump then the sound of a door being slammed. Kelsey stormed into the kitchen with untidy hair and rainbow pajamas.
"SHUT THE F*CK UP, YOU HEAR ME!!" She boomed then stormed back to bed. Willow made her way to the kitchen with a bruise on her forehead. She sat down on the left side of the table. Taylor sat in the right corner playing with her spoon.
"Did you fall out of bed?" She asked. Willow nodded and put some ice in a small bag.
"You guys really need to put carpet in " Willow groaned. Demise
Butterfly PinThat was the last thing I had ever gotten from my family. I would hold it up and it would shine in the sunlight as I used to hand it to Lizzie to put in my hair.Butterfly Pin3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
That silly little butterfly pin.
I never thought it would ever mean anything to me back then, not ever. Being back in Wonderland for the second time after the fire had proved me wrong.
When I fell, they would catch me and bring me back where I began. When I fought, they would guide me from any danger that would dare hurt me. When I died, they brought me back to life as if the fight I fought had not occurred.
Nearing the end of my journey, I had finally realized what these butterflies symbolized. My family. They had protected me and guided me to find out what had truly happened that fateful night and to find that dastardly arson. They still had faith in me after death.
My eyes opened as I heard a soft purr close to my neck. "Did you ever think they doubted you, my dear?"
I gazed upon the now clear blue sky above me. "I used to

There would be a moment when she wouldn't activate it in time, there would be a time where she'd be caught off guard.
And he knew that when that time came, he'd end up being too late.
So he hoped and hoped that she stayed lucky. That he would be able to stay by her side as much as he could.
But hoping often doesn't lead to good results, and he watched anxiously as she danced through the shining blades of the eyepots, as she dodged the oil and sludge that the disgusting...tar babies...threw at her, knowing that one day she would slip up and she would be hurt beyond a point of recovering.
He knew that he had nine lives (though technically, thanks to that damned red queen, he was now down to eight), but she...his beautiful angel of

Cheshire chuckled at her, "Care for some tea, love?"
"After that encounter? I'd rather eat paste."
He strode over to her, butting his head into her shoulder, indicating she could lean on him.
He walked her over to a slight ledge, helping her sit. Alice flinched as she moved, one of the eyepots having struck her quite viciously across her back when she was turning to attack her other foes.
"Alice, what's wrong?"
She clenched her teeth as the fabric of her dress brushed across the fresh wound.
He moved around to stand behind her, and paused for a moment, concentrating hard, feeling a rush of energy course through his veins, letting it drift through his every cell, pulling him, changing him. Cheshire shuddered, disliking the adjustment of limbs. He knelt next to Alice,

Tears of woe won't help you get by
I know that you feel scared, lost and alone
Since you cannot find your way back home
Have strange things happened?
Is there anything I need to know?
Did you taste things that make you shrink or grow?
Did you suffer any, please say it isn't so!
I will help you out, just wait and see
You'd be glad that you found a cat like me
I'll show you around this fascinating place
Only if you keep a smile on your face
No more reading signs that say "This way" or "Yonder"
Now you don't have to sit down and try to ponder
Which way should you go, you ask?
I seem to find that a fairly simple task
Just follow my grin, for you will know soon
How much it looks like a glowing crescent moon
Don't be afraid, please follow my advice
Surely you don't even need to think twice...
Oh look, there's the Queen all dressed in red,
Hear how she screams "Off with your head!"
Those are the very words that everyone dreads

He held his breath, watching as a spike plummeted from the top of the ceiling, thinking her end was near. He closed his eyes hearing the spike sink into the marred ground, his heart stopping. 'Was she gone?' he thought. 'She never bothered to listen to me that silly girl... but now who will save us? Who will save her?' He opened his eyes.
To his shock, the last of the butterflies took off around her as she continued through the maze. She survived. "Impossible..." he said to himself, "but then again, this girl has yet ceased to amaze me." He stood above the shafts, his claws sinking into every board, his golden eyes watching his broken mistress continue forth on her journey.
Alice ExcerptAlice Excerpt2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
They're so much fun, aren't they?
Every time you lie and someone finds out, you run around and around trying to fix it up. And sometimes it just leads into more lies and false accusations.
So, so much fun.
So tell me, have you read the story of Alice in Wonderland? If you haven't, let me summarize:
Alice in Wonderland is about a lovable girl named Alice who chases a rabbit down a rabbit hole and discovers a puzzling world called Wonderland where nothing makes sense and sooner or later, Alice is almost chased out of it.
What a lie.
The book you are about to read IS about a girl named Alice Liddel, and how she fell into a parallel universe called Wonderland. I can guarantee it isn't anything like the "original." (Seriously, Cheshire is a GIRL'S name. And Alice was twelve years old, not seven.) This is the truth. And sometimes, the truth can upset you, drive you insane, and maybe even kill you. After you read this book, I advise you to be suspicious of your friends. Not
The Sufferer's Final SermonI have been peaceful.The Sufferer's Final Sermon2 years ago in Drama More Like This
I have been kind.
I only dared to speak what others have been dreaming for so long.
I had dreams too;
Dreams of what might have been.
Where blood was simply blood
and all of us were equal.
If wishing for that is heresy
I deserve to die.
I've seen acts of the most sublime kindness
and the most vile cruelty.
They say powerful beings find anger when they have no room for love.
What made you so?
Are you scared of change?
Scared of those who are different?
I am different than you.
I have known feelings that none of you can ever hope to know!
I have known the comradery of a friend who supported me against all odds.
I have known the compassion of a guardian who took me in when no others would and raised me to dream and hope.
I have known a love and passion that transcended definition.
There is no use hiding it now.
You all can see me for what I am;
My blood burns bright
Changes for a Hare and DormouseChanges for a Hare and Dormouse3 years ago in Drama More Like This
It was dark and cold inside the torturous experimental room. The machines had mysteriously stopped long ago. That long ago, there was hope that the two main victims may be freed. However, that hope soon faded. There was nothing left for them but silence and loneliness now. No one came for them. No one helped them. The Hare and the Dormouse stood still, strapped to the dunking machine and dissection table, respectively, waiting for something to happen or someone to come for them.
Hatter never even came back. His defeat must have been the reason for the machines stopping. It must have been Alice who did it. It seemed like she was going to help them, but she never did. She never came back since Hare told her when the Hatter comes to check on them. Damn that girl! The Hare bet she had saved all of Wonderland by now. Yes, all of Wonderland except for them. They were trapped in the back of her mind, never to be saved or cared for. The Hare looked across the room at hi
