I was tossing and turning and couldn’t get to sleep. I had no other choice than to go to my wonderland...

Two weeks earlier...

It wasn’t even six in the morning and I was already bored. I managed to drag myself out of bed and pull on some jeans and a hoodie. “Mum!” I shouted downstairs, “Stop singing!” There was no reply. She had taken up singing as a summer break hobby.

I hated the new house. But because I was so bored I went exploring. OK, I lied, after breakfast. I was walking along the hall when I saw a latch on the ceiling. There was nothing to pull it down with so I went on a search and found a long stick in the cupboard so I gave it a try. The stick had a hook on the end perfect for pulling the latch open with. I pulled it down and out popped a ladder. I climbed up it. It was beautiful. It was like an attic turned into an artist’s painting room. It was lovely but something didn’t feel right. There was a pulsing feel in the room.

I pushed aside some boxes and found a little door. Just big enough for me to walk under. I ducked under the door without hesitating. But what was on the other side blew my breath away.

It was like walking into eternal spring. There was a mountain and a little cabin and endless rolling green hills. Climbing the mountain was a green forest. I turned around. The door was still there, in the side of a hill.

“Hello?” an inquisitive voice said behind me. I turned around and saw a young girl about my age standing behind me, “I’m Chloe. Who are you? “

“Jessie,” I replied. And just like that we were friends. Chloe had her own doorway to this mysterious world. Sometimes I go and she’s not there but we always see each other often.

I always went exploring, with or with out Chloe. There was always new things to see.

I never told anyone about the strange world or even the attic. When I go there I feel like Alice. It became a place where I could escape from the world.

My name is Jessie and this is my Wonderland.
