“What’s this new game we’re playing?” Alice brushed back her hair.
“You’re all out here with teacups balanced on chair legs. What’s going on?”
The White Rabbit checked his pocket watch. “It’s time for tea, right now.”
The March Hare laughed, “Such an interesting game. Good thing the Door Mouse is on hiding in a teapot.”
Alice stomped her foot.”Really, explain yourselves!”
She heard a maniacal laugh. “Oh, Hatter. There you are. I was getting worried.”
The Mad Hatter bowed, “Yes, my girl, you’re right on time. Now where is your pistol?”
“Pistol? I’m twelve! What do I need a pistol for?”
“To shoot the teacups and what’s inside them,” said the March Hare.
“This is even crazy for you guys. Wait! What’s inside them?”
The Hatter removed his favorite silk hat. “Oh, you’ll love it! We shrunk them down, put a drop in their tea.”
“What have you done, Hatter? Rabbit, you need to tell me immediately.”
The White Rabbit removed his pocket watch and vest. “We shrank the cards, three hearts, of course.”
The Mad Hatter laughed, “The best part isn’t the cards it’s the Queen.”
“The Queen of hearts?”
“Yes, Alice,” said Hatter. “Do you know what cup she’s in?”
Alice’s eyes grew round. She cringed as the March Hare took his first shot missing. Then the Mad Hatter shot his pistol shattering a tea cup.
He handed Alice his pistol.”Here you are now. Only two cups left and a fifty- fifty chance you’ll hit the queen.”
Her face went white. Alice starred into the Mad Hatter’s crazed eyes and swallowed.
When did Wonderland become so insane?
