12. The patrol bell

We said our goodbyes to the tea party attendants and left the grand table. I looked back once, to make sure everything I had just been through was real and I noticed the Hatter not as cheerful as before. He looked at me, smiled, and waved shortly before turning his gaze back to the other end of the table.

 

As soon as we stepped off the grass indicating the yard of the Hatter's house, we were walking on a dirt path.

-So, what have you decided to do, Katniss and Peeta? I mean, will you stay with me for another 3 months here, in Wonderland, or will you go to the new passageway in the Red & Black Land. It is quite dangerous to go there, however.

Truth be told, I haven't even asked Peeta what he wanted to do. I, personally, wanted to go to the Red Queen's passageway.

-I honestly don't know, Peeta said. Katniss?

-I would rather go to the new passageway...

-Will do, then! But we must stop at The Caterpillar before, so we know where an intermediate train station is. 

We were silent and none of us even tried to brush off the awkwardness settled. In the distance, a church bell started announcing something unexpected as the widening of Alice's eyes indicated.

-What's wrong? I asked concerned.

-Oh, my! Alice whispered breathless. I had completely forgotten! Oh no, no. This cannot be good, we should've stayed at the Hatter's!

-Why, Alice? What's going on? a touch of fear could be heard in Peeta's voice.

-This hasn't happened in 40 years! That's what The Caterpillar told me! Alice was now half shouting.

-WHAT? Peeta and I blurted. She studied our faces for a long moment and finally shook her head and then started talking swiftly and constantly, like she was reciting a poem.

-The Royal Guards are coming to patrol around Wonderland. It means something bad has happened. Anyone found outside their home shall be taken to the Palace and possibly beheaded if they are of no use to the Queen. Article VI, line 44, she finished.

-So what should we do? I asked not even half as worried as Alice.

-Quick! Hide in the woods! she shouted.

 

We ran to the side of the road, where a line of tall trees was growing. We ran further until a little wooden house appeared. It looked like the half of a coconut put on the ground. Alice pushed us in the darkness of the house and we just stood there until a click and a lighten bulb appeared in the ceiling. Alice looked around.

-Oh, well I guess Tweedledum and Tweedledee aren't home. It's a good thing, though, I don't think we would've had the place, she added with a bright smile.

-Tweedle who? I asked highly confused.
