Hello. My name is Lena Rusakova. This is my first Alice in wonderland fan fiction but my fourth Fan fiction in all. So please forgive me if I don't get Alice's voice right on the first try. But all suggestions are welcome and I will take them all into consideration. I have watched the movie Four times in attempting to get this right (and because I love it) but in watching it so many times I have come to discover the only way I can think of writing this is in third person which I have never done before. So once all these factors add up this may not be the best fan fiction I have ever written but with the time I have put into it I hope it is still good. So enough of my yapping here is the story
Disclaimer: one day I will write a book and then own all the characters and such but today is not that day and I do not own anything but a laptop and a pool pass. I love summer.
Alice leaned back in her seat in the carriage. Despite her lack of stockings and corset she still couldn't get comfortable. It was a four hour carriage ride to the Ascot manor.
"Alice, please." Her mother spoke. "what is wrong dear? I thought you would be happy to see all your friends after your year and a half at sea."
She simply nodded her head avoiding the question. In all truth the only people she had missed from back home where her mother and sister. But she could not bring herself to miss London and all it's pointless high society rules, or things like the "grand" party she was attending today in her and Lord Ascot's honor. Who she really misses were all her real friends back in 'wonderland' as she still liked to call it. She dreamed of returning once again, but this time to stay. She wanted to live there as their champion, as scary as that thought still was to her. But she knew she had to be there so she could defend the ones she loved. She was still trying to figure out a good enough lie to give her mother and the rest of society so no one would question her disappearance.
Finally Alice and her mother arrived, the party well under way. People welcomed her home and wanted to hear all about her adventures at sea. She smiled politely and answered any questions they had, all the while daydreaming about jumping through the rabbit whole that now lay within walking distance.
"Sister! Sister! Oh welcome home! I missed you!" Her sister Margret gushed as she rushed to Alice engulfing her in a hug. Lowell followed close behind Margret but offered no greeting. Alice frowned at the site of him. She had never forgave him for cheating on her sister but in the end had decided that in her sisters case ignorance was bliss.
"Hello dear sister." Alice replied with a smile. Her sister, it turns out, had been two months pregnant when Hamish had proposed to Alice and by the time Alice had left on the boat her sister had given birth to a beautiful baby boy, now two years old. "And how is my favorite nephew today?" she asked getting down to the little boys eye level. He gave a giggle before hiding behind the skirt of his mothers dress.
Alice stood back up and smiled at her sister. The party was pleasant so far. She wasn't enjoying herself but at least she wasn't miserable like usual.
that's when the screaming started. They were blood curdling screams of people who truly believed they were going to die. The group stood there frozen in fear. Someone running by bumped into Alice causing her to fall to the ground. The movement snapped them all motion. Margret spun around collecting her son, Benjamin, in her arms. Lowell was trying to rush his wife and child to safety as Alice struggled to stand up. Silently she cursed the many layers of peach colored cloth that kept getting in her way. She didn't even like the color, she much more preferred blues.
Margret realized her sister wasn't behind her. Turning she saw Alice struggling to her feet. "Alice!" she yelled. Thrusting her son into her husbands arms she rushed to her sisters side helping her stand. Alice looked around trying to find the source of panic, that's when she realized someone was missing from their group.
"Mother!" she screamed racing off in the direction the crowed was running from. Margret ran after her sister yelling at her to come back. Lowell, holding his son, chased after his wife. There was a time once when he cheated on her and only cared for himself but since his son was born he only cared for his wife and child, and so he chased after her to protect her.
Alice shoved and fought her way through the crowed. She wasn't thinking about what was causing everyone to run screaming. In her mind nothing could be worse than the Jabberwocky, and she had managed to slay that.
As Alice ran through the bush maze she was vaguely aware of people running behind her. She heard another blood curdling scream followed by shouted prayers for mercy. She recognized the voice as her mothers. She started to run faster. She rounded a corner and skidded to a stop. There pointing a spear at her mother was a red card. A red card… from wonderland.
Alice was quick to react. Looking around she spotted a large metal rod. It must have belonged to one of the beautiful tents that had provided shade during the party. During the hast to get away it must have been knocked over and destroyed. Picking it up she turned to face the threat to her family. A memory quickly flashed before her eyes.
Her and the hatter are walking side by side on the way to the battle with the Jabberwocky. He was taking a few moments to describe the basics of combat to her. At the time she had wondered how he knew so much o the subject, but didn't question it. He showed her how to hold a weapon and how to use its weight to her advantage.
Now she was incredibly grateful for the lesson. Holding the pipe like a spear she ran at the red card piercing it in it's one weak spot. The spot were the armor didn't quite meet the helmet. The card gave a gasp before falling backwards, dead. Alice stood in shock. It was only the second time she had killed something but both times she had fought as if she had been raised a warrior and not a high class young women from a respectable family.
Remembering her family she quickly turned and grabbed her mother by her upper arms. "Mother, mother! Are you alright?" she asked somewhat hysterically. Her mother simply shook her head yes as she starred at her youngest daughter like she no longer knew her.
"And are you all right?" she asked her sister and her family. Margret took her son back from her husband.
"Where… how… who taught you to fight like that?" her sister finally stuttered. Lowell held his wife close to his side as if he was ready to defend them at any second. She felt a twinge of sadness that her family was scared of her. But she figured sadness could wait until she knew they were all safe.
"It doesn't matter." Alice told her sister calmly. "But you need to follow me right now." She insisted. When no one made a move to follow her she begged. "Please! There may be more! They could be here at any second!"
Almost reluctantly they started to follow her. Within minutes they came across a tree, but Alice knew better, it was 'the' tree. The very one that had a rabbits whole at the base. A rabbits whole that lead to the one place with the only people she felt at home with… Wonderland.
Wow almost 3 whole pages I hope it is good. All mistakes are mine. I edit my own work. I don't have a set plot so ideas are welcome. Please review.
