I gazed out of the pink tinted stain glass windows, sighing. They were heart shaped, and confused me as to why something so beautiful could belong to something so sinister. I loved to sit by them and sketch. I would do so every oppurtunity I got, although I was careful to hide my work from my employers. I knew the Knave would not approve. I was busy sketching a cherry blossom tree when I stopped. I noticed something extraordinary. A girl, about my age was sat under the tree. Seeing as the window I sat by was on the ground floor, I saw her quite clearly. She had an Irish Green jacket, brown trousers, a pale complexion with freckles dotted over her face, slightly ginger hair, and an extraordinarily beautiful hat. I gazed at her in wonder. I wondered who she could possibly be. Her head was tilted forward as if she was asleep, but suddenly her head jerked up. I gasped as she stared at me. She grinned at me, and her soft brown eyes sparkled. I readjusted my glasses and smiled at her. She was the first outsider to smile at me in a long time. She came right up to the glass, still grinning. I waved shyly. I desperatly wanted to know more about her. Suddenly, her head jerked upwards, and she dashed back to the cherry blossom. Another girl did a flip and landed beside her. This girl was about the same height, with thick, short brown hair and two blue ears poking out. She wore a black and blue striped jumper, black trousers and blue boots. She had a long blue tail. She also spotted me and grinned. The first girl grabbed the cat girl's hand, and they slowly began to fade away. In seconds they were gone. Just at that moment the Red Queen tore down the stairs and into the room shreiking.
"INTRUDERS!" she bellowed.
"Please my lady, what on earth is the matter?" I asked.
"That insane buffoon has sent his sister to spy on me again!"
"Please my lady, who?"
"The Hatter of course! Don't you know anything Niccy?" I gasped. I hadn't heard of the Hatter since the Alice incident.
"A sister? He has a sister?"
"Yes, appeared a few years ago. Strange girl, utterly mad. Had a friend resembling the Cheshire Cat, and another like my silly sister." So that was who the girls were. Friends of the Hatter. I had always been told bad things about those people, but now I was curious. And she was mad! I was getting more and more intruiged by the minute. I had to know more.
Sorry it's so short, but the rest will be a lot longer. This will just set the mood a bit. The chapters eventually get longer, so please keep reading!
