Ada kicked down the door of the torture room. She bolted out, and ran down the hallway, and into the coffin room where Loue slept. She opened the coffin and slapped the vampire as hard as she could.
"AHHH! WHAT THE HELL?" Loue jumped out of his coffin, surprised and angry.
"That was the only way I could wake you up," Ada said, grinning.
"Why are you here, I thought you were with Hatter." Loue was confused now, but he still wanted to know.
Ada had to think. Her plan was to keep her sister safe from Loue, without Loue knowing she isn't Liddell. She knew Loue was bothersome, because Cheshire had went to Ada and told her to think of a plan to keep Loue away from Hatter and Liddell. Ada didn't know why, but all she knew was to think. And she figured that since Loue isn't a fan of Hatter, he isn't a fan of Liddell either. So she formed the plan.
"There was nothing between us," Ada lied, hoping he wouldn't know the truth.
"Really? I guess that makes some sense because I know very well that you would never return here just to see me if there was something going on."
Ada was relieved. Her plan would go from here. She just had to keep lying…Which she knew in her heart was wrong. But she had to lie, to save her sister. Why else would a wise talking cat tell her to do such a thing? She continued to wonder.
Ada stayed with Loue. Lying, sleeping in the torture room, waking up, repeat. She lived off tomatoes and occasionally what Loue would bring from Rem Sacchras. (which was a real treat.)
Liddell stayed at the school, Hatter and Molly would stay over for days in a row.
At the end of the week, both Hatter and Loue went to Lenore to report to Queen Alice what they had learned about Liddell and 'Liddell.'
Hatter went in first.
Queen Alice sat in her chair, fast asleep when Hatter walked in. It was always 6pm in Lenore, yet the people that lived there slept on a regular basis as humans do. Even if the sun was always casting a golden shadow low in the sky, sleep was required. And today, Alice was a bit sleepier than normal.
Hatter gently tapped on her shoulder to wake her.
"…Hmmmm….Dinah…Hm…? Oh… What? Did I fall asleep?" Alice shook the tired off as she rubbed her eyes. "Sorry about that…*Yaaaawn*…" Even Queens can slack off sometimes.
"I have more to tell of Miss Liddell, Queen Alice." Hatter bowed, then cleared his hair from his face.
"This should be interesting," Queen Alice said as she sat up in her chair, still looking rather tired.
"I can see it on your face that you have good news for me," She leaned back and listened.
Hatter made a crooked smile. "Well, she's definitely gone through a lot. Vivid dreams about the Eld Witch, which made her cry quite a lot..."
"…..That's not good… Did you comfort her while she cried?" Alice looked sympathetic.
"Yes. Molly was there too."
"You've grown closer to her…?"
"I… suppose so."
It was silent.
"How much time has she spent with you? Does she know you're trying to get information?" Alice asked.
"About a month after she met Molly, she met me again. We haven't been apart much at all since then for some reason. Yes she knows I am trying to get information to you. She also knows about Loue doing the same." Hatter sighed.
"Stay with her, you're doing well." Alice laughed.
"Is there anything else you would like to know, Queen Alice?"
"If anything else happens, just be sure to tell me. We can get into the details later… I'm very tired today." Alice yawned.
"You may leave now, and tell Loue he can come in. Thank you, Hatter."
Hatter bowed, and left the room. As he walked past Loue, he gave him a frightening glance that could send chills down your spine.
Loue entered the room, and bowed. He looked up at Alice, smiling.
"Why do you look so happy, Loue? " Alice gave a suspicious look.
"What do you mean by that?" He asked, confused.
"Never mind, just tell me what you found out this week about Liddell."
"She came to my castle earlier this week, and has been staying with me ever since. She's been doing well."
"Hahahahaa….alllright, Loue. Now tell me what really happened. It's unacceptable to lie to me, You know that." She said with a sarcastic smile. She wasn't in the mood for joking around.
"What?" Loue was confused quite a bit.
"What do you mean what, just tell me if you're lying or not." Alice looked cross.
"I wouldn't lie to you, Queen Alice, I don't have any idea what you're talking about." Loue hid his anger.
"Hatter wouldn't lie either."
There was a long pause.
"I don't know who's side to be on. I will figure out who's lying, in time. You may leave, Loue."
Loue bowed and left.
He went straight back to his castle. He had some questions for 'Liddell.'
