IMMMMMM BAAAAAAAACCCCCKKKKK! lol I know it's been a little while since I've updated. And there is a reason for that. I'm about to get death threats...
I've decided against the sequel -dodges the knives and pitch forks- I know, I know! I did that stupid poll for nothing and took down the last chapters. Well, I re-read the last chapter and I read all the reviews saying how you all liked the ending the way it was and well, I kinda agree with you :) I like it too. This story is just fine without a sequel.
I will, however, add a few more chapter to fill in where Alice went back home cuz that was a BIG ass hole and I kicked myself for even posting that damn chapter :( Oh well, Imma fix that and put this story right :)
Please, please, please don't flame me for deciding against the sequel. I'll write another story for Alice in Wonderland, but this story doesn't need a sequel. If ya'll request another story, I'll write you guys another story, but no sequel. The ending was as it should be and I was a moron for thinking that it needed to be changed. The people who were against the sequel...you can call me a moron...as long as you say you love me after :D lol
Tarrant woke with a loud gasp then glanced around quickly. When his eyes landed on Alice, he relaxed with a sigh of relief.
Another bad dream…
He leaned over and brought Alice closer to him, protectively. Even when she was asleep, Alice made him feel so much better.
I should've had her father give her to me that day. Would've helped me quite a bit.
Burying his face in her sweet scented hair, he started to think. Alice was in danger. He knew that without a doubt. It wasn't just from her father. There was the Red Queen as well and that woman was hell on a stick.
The White Queen would help.
Tarrant nodded to himself. Mirana needed to meet Alice though. She was probably getting ready to give Tarrant a semi-harsh lecture about not letting her meet her Royal Hatter's future wife.
He blinked. Oh god, I've got to ask her, don't I? I don't even have a ring though…wait…
Tarrant smiled slyly and gently removed himself from Alice. He left the room with a determined look on his face.
When Alice woke up, she noticed two things. One, Tarrant wasn't in bed and two; there was something large and warm purring right next to her. She slowly looked over on Tarrant's side and shrieked.
"Good morning to you too, love." Chessur greeted with his trademark smile.
Alice grabbed at the blankets to cover herself. "Chessur! What on earth are you doing in here? I'm not decent!"
"I noticed." He purred with a wink.
She blushed. "Chessur!"
"Oh, Alice, don't worry! I didn't even look." Chessur reassured her. "I'm only here because you're warm and this bed is comfortable."
Alice sighed and gave him a smile. "You're such a silly cat."
He chuckled. "Yet you love me anyway."
"Yes, I do." She replied, scratching him under his chin. He purring louder and rubbed against her hand in response.
Alice suddenly looked around. "Hey, where's my Tarrant?"
"Your Tarrant? Good lord, woman, you are quite selfish, aren't you?" Chessur teased.
"Oh hush, you. Where did he go?" She asked again.
Chessur shrugged. "Beats me. I just got here, love."
"Be a dear and hand me my dress?" Alice said.
He nodded and in a flash, had her dress in his paws. "My, my, Alice. You're certainly a tiny thing."
"Oh, give me that and turn around, you silly cat!" Alice laughed.
Chessur did as he was told while Alice slipped into the lovely dress that her Tarrant had made for her. When she was dressed, she turned to Chessur. "Come on. Help me find him."
They searched the house up and down and all around, but Tarrant wasn't in sight. Alice sat down on the couch in the living room and heaved a loud sigh. "I wonder why that silly man went."
"Don't worry, love." Mally said, "He'll be fine."
"That's right! Remember, he can rip men apart with his bare hands." Chessur exclaimed and several minutes later, he paled slightly.
"I…I just remembered that he wants to rip me in half…"
Alice laughed. "He won't, dear. Life would be too boring if you weren't here to aggravate him like no tomorrow."
Chessur smiled. "Oh, yeah…He'd miss me."
Alice rolled her eyes. Suddenly, the sound of the front door opening caught their attentions.
Hatter walked in with a large smile. "Hello, cricket!"
Alice leapt up and hugged her hatter. "Where were you?"
Tarrant looked over at his friends and motioned for them to leave. All but Chessur got the hint. Well, until Mally pulled him by his long whiskers. Tarrant didn't say one word until they were out the door and then he let Alice back to his
Our room. He thought with a smile.
"Tarrant? What on earth is going on?" Alice asked.
"I have a surprise." He stated.
"Oh? What kind of surprise?"
"The good kind. Is there any other kind of surprise?"
Alice laughed. "Well, there is a bad surprise."
"Oh, this definitely isn't a bad surprise…or at least, I hope it's not." He closed the door and sat her on their bed. "Alice…"
"Tarrant…" Alice replied with a smile.
"I have a question for you." He said, fiddling with his jacket pocket.
"Well, actually, I have a few."
"Yes?" Alice repeated, laughing.
"Well, I have one stupid question." He said, "Do you love me?"
"Tarrant Hightopp, you know that I do!" Alice smiled.
"Right. Do you want to stay here with me…forever?"
Alice's smile faltered slightly as she thought for a moment. It wasn't ever easy, starting over. But…for him…she would. Without a doubt.
"Yes, I do." She replied.
Tarrant smiled. " Right and now for my last question."
He got down on one knee and smiled when Alice gasped at him. He pulled his hand out of his coat pocket and held a white velvet box in his pale hand. Slowly, he opened it to reveal a lovely ring with a sapphire stone and several diamonds surrounding it.
"Alice Kingsley, will you marry me?"
Alice brought her hand to cover her mouth as the tears of utter bliss filled her eyes. She couldn't even believe…
"Yes!" She exclaimed.
"Yes, I will marry you!"
Tarrant beamed as he slipped the ring onto her slender finger and then pulled her into his arms to spin her around. He finally set her back down to kiss her till she saw stars.
"Tarrant, I love you." She said, breathlessly.
"And I love you, cricket."
"I can't believe that this is really happening." Alice whispered.
"I can. I'm gonna marry the best woman I've ever known." He said, holding her close.
Alice smiled and pressed her cheek to his chest, listening to the pounding of his sweet heart.
I can't wait to be your wife. She thought as her future husband held her close.
