Overtaken by Darkness (darkfox1andDarkRavenParker)
Alice had just set foot back in Wonderland after a black rabbit with matted fur beckoned her to follow him down the rabbit hole again. It had been ten years since she had been in Wonderland. She was now a young woman of twenty-one. Her yellow sundress was now a tight black dress and thigh high boots. She looked down and was a bit surprised.
Alice looked at her surroundings. It had changed and not in a good way. The hedges and trees had no leaves and the bark and branches black. Alice walked down the path following the black rabbit. She looked up to notice the skies were dark with what might be a storm.
The rabbit was quickly taking her towards the woods and a way she knew. The rabbit was taken her to the home of none other than the Mad Hatter. She wondered as she walked why the rabbit hadn't said a word to her and when he turned to see if she was following; she found why he couldn't talk. His mouth was down shut. "Little rabbit who could have done this to you?"
As if beckoned, the Cheshire cat appeared and he looked so different. He was skinny and pieces of his skin gone. "Why Alice it has been a while. There is something terrible happening. Go see the mad one and he will tell you all." With that he disappeared. She followed the rabbit until they came to a iron gate taking place of the white picket fence she knew.
Alice unlatched the gate and walked in to find the table and its settings covered in ivy as if there hasn't been a tea party in years. She made her way to the door but as she past the table what looked like venus fly traps snapped at her. When she got to the door she knocked. As she waited she wondered how he had changed.
