Short Story by: Lerrean
My name is Alice Moonlight and I heard all of the stories about wonderland. So I decided to go out and find it for myself. Today is my nineteenth birthday, so when Nana came into wish me a happy birthday I told her my plans. “Are you crazy child? Do you know how many people go looking for that place only to find death?” she cried when I left.
Well it’s been a whole year since that day I left the mansion and Nana. Yet I still have not found Wonderland. “Excuse me Miss but why did you come on such a boat? Do you wish for adventure?” The cabin boy asked. “As a matter of fact I do. The adventure of my life, to find a land some claim to have seen but none have came back in search for. Wonderland.” I smiled but soon frowned when he shook his head in shame. “My father went on that journey only to have come home with no story to tell and to have killed himself.” “I’m quite sorry to hear. Both of my parents went in search for Wonderland but neither came back.” A young man said coming around the corner. “Oh Mr. Shadows did you enjoy your meal?” The cabin boy asked. “Of course give my compliments to the chef will you lad.” Mr. Shadows said, “And who might this young lady be?” “Oh I’m Alice Moonlight. It’s nice to meet you sir.” I said.
Soon we docked and all was still. “Where is everyone?” I asked turning around to find no boat, cabin boy, or Mr. Shadows. I started to think it was a bad idea to leave Nana.
