Chapter 1- Me and my sister
Alice's point of view
You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours. I remember Mirana's word too well. I was just on my way back home from my trip to China. I left the ship after all of the crew went home. This was my last day of work. My dreams of Wonderland have been coming back to me instantly when I returned.
However, I had no time for that, for the moment. One of the crewmembers gave me a letter saying that it is from a family member.
Dearest sister, Alice
I have some news to tell you. I want you to come to my house whenever you can. I want to have a nice chat with you about your trip. The news I have for you is about our mother and my husband.
I got to a carriage and told the person to take me to the Manchester mansion. The mansion was not that far from the ships. I arrived at the mansion a few minutes later. When the rain started pouring down.
The mansion was stunning, even in the rain. I had honestly never been to my sister's house before. It had a beautiful shade of purple and silver for the colors. The windows were made as stained glass. I almost felt curious about the place. I rushed over to the door and went inside.
Once I was inside, I took my blue jacket off. "You arrived without any trouble. Welcome sister." Margaret greeted. She was in our mother's old rocking chair. Mother had given her chair to Margaret at her wedding. Margaret had her purple dress on and her hair was in a bun with braids.
"Our dear mother died of a high fever." Margaret told me. "I'm sorry." I murmured. Margaret took a hold of me and hugged me. "When you were out on your trip she had been feeling odd. She didn't know what to expect." She soothed.
"I suppose a funeral will be coming soon." I guessed, "What else did you want to tell me?" I was already looking in the room for Lowell, but he wasn't around. "You are looking for him, are you? He left me for another woman." Margaret said. I looked at her. Did he really do it?
Margaret turned away and grabbed a picture. It was of her and Lowell at their engagement party. "Margaret, I actually have a confession about Lowell. At my first engagement party, I saw Lowell with another woman. He told me not to mention it to you, fearing that you would never trust him again." Margaret turned to me with an intense gaze.
I continued, "He told me that I shouldn't ruin your marriage. I tried to tell him that I am not the one sneaking around without you noticing him. That was when Hamish told me to go to the gazebo. I should've told you." "I don't blame you, Alice. I knew something was up with him after you left." Margaret told me as her attention was back onto the picture. She said that after mother had died Lowell was making plans to escape London. She guessed that he was scared of our mother and me because we were keeping an eye on him.
Now with mother gone and when I left to China, he didn't hesitate to make his move. He was never heard from again. I listened to the thunder outside of the house. As the lightning clashed, Margaret lets out a loud scream and smashed the picture. The glass was broken on impact. She also threw the picture and broke most of the antics and the dishes. She was hitting the wall with her arms that bruises were starting to form.
I quickly grabbed her arm, "Margaret!" She stopped throwing the remaining dishes and buried her face into my chest. As she cried, I could hear her saying, "That jerk ruined my life!"
I placed her in the rocking chair and went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea. Margaret was trying to calm down as I got her to drink it. "How has your expedition been going?" She asks, her tone of voice was seemingly calm.
I explained, "The trip went well. We did not bump into any bad weather. We did have a hard time into getting the countries to trade with us. Nevertheless, they soon warmed up to the idea. We found extraordinary treasures. Some jewels, some new trading tools. It was really good." I had been working with Lord Ascot for three months since that engagement party for me was off.
I made my father's wish to expand his dream come to reality. However, my dreams of wonderland were still haunting me, even when I was working. I told Lord Ascot that I was done with working and that I will be leaving the business to him. He was shocked at first, but he took my offer without any problems.
"Let's get some sleep." Margaret told. I took the cup to the kitchen and went up to the guest bedroom. "Alice, do you mind if I sleep with you?" Margaret asked. I nodded. We have not slept with each other for a long time. We brushed our teeth, got into our pajamas and got under the covers.
"Tomorrow is mother's funeral, so I already have the clothes figured out." Margaret mentioned. "Good night sis." I gave her our official good night hug. "Good night Alice." She yawned. We fell asleep as we listened to the rain outside.
Okay. I will be working on chapter 2 for this story. Review anytime you want to.
