All Wrong - C13 - RememberDo you Remember
Hatter sat on the back of a brown horse they called Guinevere with Alice.
They hadn't trusted him enough to let him ride in the front where he would have preferred. It was the right choice too. With him in control he would have ridden off with Alice.
The only thing that was keeping him from being too pissed off was the look on Duchess's face.
She was sitting behind the crazy old man, looking down right distraught.
She clearly wasn't comfortable on a horse and she didn't want to touch the guy. To top it off he was singing a nonsense 'Hey nonny, nonny' song at the top of his lungs.
He couldn't really see Alice's face but he could tell she was grinning ear to ear.
Then again, he had every right to be pissed off.
He had been drugged, kidnapped, had his weapons taken away. And now he was here half of his free will because of the fear of being executed!
Then to make things worse everyone kept talking about him like he was someone else.
He had never
All Wrong - C12 - JabberwockyAlice got off Hatter and placed the hat on his head. The second it was on he blotted.
"Where are you going Hatter?" she called back to him. He stopped and turned to look at her, his face hard. "If you go back to the Queen without me she'll have your head for sure. Even if you are her favourite assassin," she spat out the word.
"Then, I'll just have to bring you back with me," he said simply, walking back to her.
"I'm a black belt, good luck with that."
Hatter looked at her in confusion again. She rolled her eyes; she was not going to explain it to him.
"In other words she can kick you ass," Duchess said for her. "So you come with us."
At that moment a screeching roar sounded through the forest.
"What was that?" Duchess and Hatter said in unison.
"Shit!" Alice hissed. With one of the knives she cut the ropes around Hatters wrists. "Quick, climb a tree." Duchess immediately bent down and took of her heals. Hatter just stared at her doubtfully.
"It's your advice, just do it!
All Wrong - C11 - What HappendThis time to cover their tracks Alice and Duchess dragged their flamingos into the water.
Alice guessed this was the right spot because not far down was an old abandoned boat that could well have been Hatters.
Then before he could wake up she and Duchess searched Hatter. They confiscated two guns and three knives
'Make that four,' Alice thought as she found one in his hat. She took three of the knives and gave one plus both the guns to Duchess.
"Won't you need one?" she asked.
"I'm not very good with guns," she said tying Hatter's hands and propping him against a tree further into the forest. "So what have they done to him?" she asked quietly.
Duchess seemed to take a moment and sighed.
Together they sat down about a tree away from him.
"A few days after you left, Hatter was going to follow you through," Duchess began. "So he, Jack, Number 10 and I were at the Looking Glass as they were about to send the last Oysters through. Then Knave came. He took the ring and shot Jack.
All Wrong - C10 - EscapeAlice
Alice had no idea what Duchess was up to when she came in and slipped her a note saying:
'Act daft, I'll explain later!'
She had played along and they talked about meaningless things for minutes.
Duchess had been all: 'Oh my goodness I can't believe this is happening!' playing the part of the perfect blonde.
But though she played along the only thing that stayed in her head was Hatter. It took all she could not to scream at Duchess, asking what they'd done to him.
He was so cold. He didn't even remember her.
But not only that but he was an assassin! An assassin!
It didn't even faze him. She just could never even imagine her Hatter being like that.
Suddenly there was a loud thump and she peered behind Duchess to see Hatter lying unconscious on the floor. Duchess looked too.
"Finally!" she said going over and taking the keys from his pocket. "I drugged the drink," she told Alice opening the door.
"You knew he would drink it!" Alice said amazed.
"Welcome to my life as
All Wrong - C9 - LegendThe Great Alice of Legend
Mockingly he looked up at the girl.
He was used to women looking at him in fear. But this girl's fear was different, it wasn't directed at him, it was directed to him.
He could see how shocked she was when he spoke. Like he wasn't what she had expected.
He was also intrigued as to how she knew who he was, let alone was worried what they'd done to him. He'd never seen this girl in his life.
Though she did somehow seem familiar. But that was probably because he had seen her picture a thousand times on the 'Most Wanted' wall.
"Did I emphasise 'used to remember' enough?" he heard Knave whisper in her ear. She seemed absolutely shocked then she glared murderously at the King.
He liked her spunk, not many people other than him had the guts to glare at Knave. But she still seemed rather weak compared to what he'd been told about her.
"Too bad we weren't here when she came," he said to Knave. "It would have been fun to fight this one when she wasn
All Wrong - C8 - ShockIn the Scarab 10 had been stripped of his Clubs hat and cloak. Without the pointy beard he would have looked normal and rather handsome.
They were taken past the ruins of the Casino, which weren't really ruins anymore since it was being rebuilt.
They were taken to a large castle just over the hill. She knew the queen hadn't had a castle so this had clearly been stolen.
As the Suits took them into the castle they were met by a man with bleached hair and ice blue eyes. There was something familiar about him, yet she knew she'd never seen him before.
"So this is the Alice of Legend!" he cried dramatically throwing his arms out in welcome. "I am King Knave."
He walked right up to her and studied her for a moment. "You're every bit as beautiful as Hatter used to remember," he told her quietly.
A cold shock ran up her body when she noted the past tense.
"What have you done him?" she demanded, her voice shaking.
"Now, now Alice. We'll get to that one eventually," he said patronizingly.
All Wrong - C7 - WonderlandAlice felt herself falling and opened her eyes to find herself in that colourful vortex. She could have laughed with happiness but was struck by the familiar lack of breath.
This time when she landed she wasn't so dizzy. And she was actually in the Looking Glass room. Not some creepy place so filled with water everyone was in danger of being electrocuted.
Looking around she saw a few Suits looking back at her cautiously. And the 10 of Clubs was there too!
"Number 10!" she greeted him warmly.
"Miss Hamilton!" he replied. He was clearly shocked to see her but he put on a friendly face. "It's so nice to have you back. How was your holiday?" He turned to the Suits. "An old friend," he told them. "She has clearance. She's been on holiday through the Glass for the past two years. A courtesy of the queen. It's fine; I'll take her to see King Knave myself." When 10 looked at her he held a warning in his eyes.
"What?" Alice asked sounding very confused.
"A lot has changed since you've been gone
All Wrong - C6 - LookinglassAlice
It had been a whole year since Alice had 'imagined' her trip to Wonderland.
It was a year since her father had died.
Though she told herself everyday that it hadn't been real, part of her refused to believe it. It had just been too real. Hatter, her father everything.
But all evidence pointed to it being false.
If she'd gotten some sort of tattoo, then it should still be there right? It was gone.
But every now and then she'd pass under a UV light and she would swear she could faintly see it under her skin.
No! The mirror wasn't real. Hatter and Charlie and the Red Queen weren't real. Her father was still missing and Jack just up and left.
She had ran into a building after a creepy old man who had mugged Jack and stole his family's ring. She'd fallen and knocked herself unconscious for an hour.
It wasn't as an exiting story as Wonderland, but it was the true one.
That's what she kept telling herself.
And yet still she found herself walking into a church and lighting a
All Wrong - C5 - DeathHe glared up at Knave, tears blurring his vision.
"You said you would help her!" he yelled.
"It wouldn't have made a difference," he said casually inspecting his nails.
"You could have saved her!"
"No we couldn't have."
"You had time to get her to an infirmary and save her!"
"It wouldn't have mattered Hatter. Because she was never really there." As he said this Alice's body vanished from his arms, leaving them empty.
But for a moment his heart soared, Alice wasn't really here. She had never been there! She hadn't really been shot!
"Where is she? What have you done with her?!" he yelled going up to the bars like the caged animal he was.
"Alice? She was already dead." His heart went cold all over again.
"What?" he said quietly. It sounded so different and strange compared to the yelling.
"We took her from her world a few weeks back. Naturally the High Queen wanted her executed immediately. When we realised she was the key to making you talk well, we had to improvise," the ev
