Hell on EarthI looked in the mirror. The same mirror I looked into one hundred times. The cracks in it disfigured my face and body, the dust built nests for all the microscopic bugs. I stared into the dull blue eyes that used to be filled with hope, now sunken in and filled with nothing but the sour, dim blue color. The blonde hair that used to cover my head was now a shadowy color of death and down to my waist. I turned around and looked around my room. The room I lived in for five years, the bright white room that I had known all to well.
"Alice?" The nurse said as she ever so slowly and slightly cracked open the door, my wide sunken eyes stared deep into her deep brown eyes. I didn't blink, nor move, just a slight tilt of the head. "Dr. Goodwell wants to see you..come on Dear." She said as she walked inside the room and by my side. I slowly moved my head with every step she advanced towards me. I watched her throat moved with her gulp of fear. I tilted my head as she lightly guided me out of the room and into the long hallway. I didn't look around as men called out my name, the terrified screaming along side the screaming of the insane. The smell of the disgusting vomit and feces of the mental hit me the moment I left my room.
I sat in the white chair, right across from the 'doctor'. "You can tell me or ask me anything Alice." He said, I looked up at him in silence. After a while of the grueling stillness of the room. I tilted my head, some of my inky hair covered one of my eyes. "....Can a cat smile?" I asked, he looked up at me, shock filled his grey eyes. I kept my eyes wide and my face blank. "Um..I..I believe a cat can not smile." He said, I shot my head up. "WRONG!" I shouted, he jumped back. "A cat can smile." I said calmly, and slowly blinked. "A...Alice, a cat can not smile." He said, I felt the scar on my arm tingle. "Can a caterpillar smoke? Can a beast have it's eye plucked out and put it back in and see out of it?" I asked more and more questions, each question made the doctor more and more annoyed.
"Alice! There is no such thing as Wonderland." He said as he shook his head. "You hit your head after slipping in a rabbit hole, you cut your arm on a tree and almost broke your ankle, Wonderland does not exist. It was a dream Alice." He said, I blinked again. "Oh I assure you, Wonderland is real." I said as I looked out the window, a blue butterfly was at the window. "Absolem." I said, the doctor looked at the window and shook his head. "It is a butterfly Alice..I don't see how the medication isn't helping..maybe I need to get you a stronger prescription." He muttered to himself, but I heard it. Oh yes I heard it all. How he hates me as a patient, wishing I would either die or leave.
A white bunny stood there, it's fur missing in some places, it's small suit ripped to shreds and clinging onto it's body for dear life. One of its ears were missing, as was one eye, but the eye was replaced with a pocket watch. We stared deep into each other's eyes before it hopped into the alleyway. I looked around and opened the door. I looked around the hallway, empty besides a little girl rocking back and forth. I walked out of the room and quickly started running, my hair flowing behind me like a black river, the moon shone through the windows, catching my hair just right so it looked like oil spilling. I ran up to the door. Once I open this, an alarm will go off...and I have only three minutes to run. I slammed opened the door, the alarm went off immediately. I started running into the alleyway and looked around. "White rabbit?" I asked as I stopped. Surprisingly, it poked it's head out from a corner, and started running, I followed it.
All the way to a small rabbit hole in the ground.
