Watch Your Step"Be careful, Alice. Watch your step, Alice," repeated the Cheshire Cat as she walked through the valley of the spikes. He stood in silence as he watched her weave in and out of the sharp, elongated death-trap.Watch Your Step4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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.

Entitled Cheshire Cat
By Seth Vandenburg
Wonderlands mysterious grinning feline
His riddles, ever so divine
But on first sight to Alice
Who before, her heart never had malice
The cat was as strange as all the signs
As of now, the Cheshire Cat has changed
His fur, his riddles, all of him rearranged
Body a skeleton-form, a ring in his ear
And his grin was much worse to fear
His teeth, completely fanged
His sudden transformation, so very uncouth
All of him changed, body to tooth
No normal man would dare to delve
To fight the Cheshire Cats corrupted shell
Though Alice was calm, to tell the truth
They both journeyed together through Wonderland
Through treacherous hordes of enemies, band by band
The Red Queens domain, they soon appear
The end game forever near
Though sadly, the Cheshire Cat met his end by the Red Queens hand
Goodbye AliceInitially, I thought there would be a lot more great deal of pain when it came to dying. But in the end, it only was an intense heavy and numb feeling, almost like you were hit in the head with a large block of ice. The only notion really that I was really even dying was the metallic taste in my mouth, and the haze in my eyes. I looked at her, her young girlish features tainted by the splatter of my blood. Her eyes remained opened, as if she were to be strangled, and her mouth twitched wildly, most likely from shock. It was sad that that was going to be the expression she wore the last time I saw her. I really don't think I had ever seen anyone as scared as she was at that moment, and if I had had time to reflect on it, I would have been frightened too. With a great jolt, I felt the muscles in my body let go, giving up on my hope. As I fell on top of her, I managed to whisper,Goodbye Alice3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Claws that rip,
Fangs that gleam,
Gives the mad wicked dreams.
Wanders forward; halts; stares,
Eyes of yellow, slitted pupils. Glare.
And out of shadows, rasped sound speaks,
Like a whisper given weak wind,
Quizzical voice whom obscures reap
With ill fated fate on breath, such sins.
'What wonders down before mine eyes?
Brings cause to wonder,
draws out surprise?
Why, travelers that wander here,
Come from far, come from near.
Pausing only in brief repose,
Tho' conciseness still may expose,
Secrets, lies, half truths, Un-wholes,
And in, the seekers dig like moles.
Stay for more than a moment long?
And thy mind to you will no longer belong.
Take into context thoughts that fray,
Like my claws, from which blood runs astray.
Now run, run little birds, have no fear,
We're all quite mad, Quite awfully mad, here.'

After re-joining with the others, Alice, Sora, Donald and Goofy travelled to a desolate and forbidden place with lava fountains and skeletons scattered all over the place. Inside, they could hear the growling of the Jabberwock, the Red Queen’s champion.
‘Must we go in there?’ Donald asked, his legs shaking.
‘We came so far.’ Goofy said. ‘There is no turning back.’
Sora looked at Alice. He grabbed her hand and gave it a slight squeeze. Alice squeezed back and smiled at him before letting go. The group readied their weapons and strode slowly into the lair. As they enter the lair, they stopped as they behold a creature that was most horrifying so far during their encounter. The creature resembled a giant, green lizard with mechanical wings, glowing yellow orbs for eyes and a burning furnace attached to its’ chest. This half-monster and half-machine was en

Ciel sat at his desk, he just sat there, staring down at his paperwork. He yawned, then look outside, it was still the middle of the day and felt tired. A knock at his door made him jump slightly, clearing his throat, his butler, Sebastian, walked in. "My lord, Pluto is being very..troublesome again.." The butler, who was also a demon, told him.
Ciel smirked slightly, seeing how annoyed Sebastian was, it amused him. "Bring Pluto here, Sebastian." He ordered the demon. One of Sebastian's eyes twitched slightly, but he bowed and said "Yes,my lord." Then walked out.
Not soon after Sebastian came back, holding the demon hound, in its human form, by the collar. "Here, it is, my lord.." Sebastian spoke, annoyance in his voice, dropping Pluto. The demon hound landed with a loud thump. He looked up at Sebastian, sadness in his eyes.
Sebastian sighed with annoyance, then looked at Ciel wondering what he wanted from the dog. Ciel got up and walked over to Pluto. Getting down on one knee,

They are closing in, locking everything into place.
Turning the key, pocketing it. The gears turn, squeaking.
Run, Alice! Run!
Care not for the fools in your way, nor the children who swarm like bees.
Avoid the pests, they are merely insects.
The citizens mean nothing.
They are nothing, Alice.
The riddles the Cat made, you must miss.
They twist your mind to fit this place...
Your mind becomes more confused than ever.
Fight it, Alice. Battle your curiosity.
Those enemies of yours will cower easily... but you let them stir fear in your heart.
You do not know your own mind!
It is your own doing, your own fault... Your own life.
Is this what it is meant to be, Alice? Is this what you intended?...
Your efforts are squashed, ripped apart by your doctor.
He burns your memories, shatters your family...
Will you listen to his words, Alice?
Will you give in?...
But you are.
You are taking in his lies... corruptions...

Mary! Mary Alice, wake up! Quickly! Mothers sharp whisper cut through the drowsy haze that fogged my brain. My eyes inched open.
What? I mumbled, yawning and rubbing my eyes.
Get up! Now! She yanked my covers off, and I shivered in the cool air.
Why? I looked out the window--it was dark out, not even a hint of sunlight. Its not even morning, and its a school--
Do what I say, Mary Alice! Mother hissed, her voice shaking with fury. I sat up and stretched, realizing on an afterthought that Mother only called me Mary Alice when she was extremely angry.
I was moving too slow for her liking--with a bony hand, she grabbed my arm and pulled me off of the bed and started pushing me out of my room.

("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

Emotionless Asylum: Part OneEmotionless Asylum: Part One11 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I was never a normal child. My parents knew that since I was born. That was why they abandoned me outside the orphanage. But even they found me to be, unusual. I never laughed when playing with the other children. I didnt cry either when they picked on me. I never made any friends. I didnt care. I didnt want any. What I wanted was to be alone, and if I couldnt have that, then death.
I wasnt at the orphanage long. After two years of not talking, odd behaviour and not even a chance at being adopted they sent me to a doctor. He spent years studying me. I slept in a spacious room, with a bed, a chest for my things, and a window. They pitied me. I knew it. They gave me nice clothes, toys, books, anything a normal small girl of six could wish for. But I was no typical six-year-old girl. I didnt care for the things they gave me. When I threw the toys at them they would always end up back in the chest. There was only one thing I liked

The rest of the remaining campers dumped me and Annabeth straight into the lake, cheering and whistling as we floated down together. I wasn't focusing on the being in the water as much this time (hmm, wonder why ) so my clothes were soaked the moment they hit the water. I blindly made an air bubble around our heads and continued to kiss.
Annabeth's hands were run up my wet hair, and I had my hands wrapped around her slender waist. Campers clapped and yelled things muffled by the water like, "Finally!" and "Yeah, Percy! Get some face!" was from the more rowdy campers. A smile played at her face at that, and I kissed her teeth for a bit.
Campers began to leave after awhile. How long had we been down here? I honestly didn't know or care at the moment. Only some of the campers that we knew well were waiting up at the top for us. Clarisse and Nico were pretty much the only ones there.
"Finished?" Nico taunted, one of his rare smiles showing.

It was a weird feeling to hold the sleeping Bella in my arms. Weird and yet unbelievable good. I hummed the tune of a lullaby that had come to my mind just like that in this peaceful moment and yet it sounded awfully familiar. Just like it was new and so familiar to hold Bella.
Her sleeping face was blank of any expression and then again it seemed to be painted with deep lines of comfort. I couldn't stop looking at her. The way she was breathing not even aware of this act or how her heart was beating in a slow rhythm of life, barely visible at her neck. Every pulse a sign of new life and she wasn't even aware of it. It was quite a surprise that this moment didn't send me running away from her. I was still not bothered by the temptation her blood was to me. For this moment I didn't have to fight for composure but could just enjoy the sight of her face.
I was wishing for one thing only. To be able to sleep next to her. I wanted to sleep ever since I'd become a vampire but tonig

A gaping yawn distorts my features. I can just see the soft gray light that precedes sunrise crawling across my ceiling and throwing soft shadows across the far wall.
Reaping day has arrived at last.
My stomach drops. It's best not to think about that. There's no use. There's no use torturing myself with thoughts of the coming ceremony. I've learned that well over the past 4 years.

Every great plan fails before it is unfurled

With no one left there will be no death
