The journal I used to edit for had a writing contest and the theme was “down the rabbit hole”. I was the judge, and I got to read some amazing stories written by some talented students.It got me thinking about Alice and Wonderland, and this is what transpired.
“You’re late, you’re late. for a very important DAAAAaaaate” Said the rabbit.
“No. I’m not!” Alice barked.
“Weeeellll Soooomebody’s defensive” sneered the rabbit. “Guess that answers the question of how far you and Keith have gone.”
“SHUT. UP” Alice locked herself in the bathroom, but the rabbit just slid under the door.
“You know, all you have to do is pee on a stick. It’s not that hard. You can even buy them at the dollar store.”
“I am NOT buying a dollar store pregnancy test. Besides, I am not late. I think I felt a cramp earlier. Stop nagging me. I have a few days before I need to worry.”
“Well I don’t know why you’re mad at me,” the rabbit tittered. “You’re the one who conjured me up.”
Alice stared at the rabbit until he vanished, sighed, and sunk to the floor, shaking.
