9. Violet and the gossiping flowers

The blonde girl started walking towards the woods, and Peeta and I both followed her, the pink grinning cat on our side.

-Is this your cat? I asked Alice, pointing at the fat creature.

-Oh no! That's the Duchess' cat. Very nice cat actually, she smiled, stopping to pick the cat up.

-What's it's name? Peeta questioned

-It doesn't really have a name, Alice said as the cat started purring. It's a Cheshire cat.

 

We entered the forest, as Peeta and I were staring in awe. The trees were green, all their leaves grown, the sun peaking in between the branches and the dirt we were stepping on softer than ever. There was the same breeze as in the meadow, making Alice's hair float in the wind. The sound of the shaking leaves was very calming but there were no birds singing.

-Where are we going?

-We're going to pay a visit to the Mad Hatter, Katniss, she smiled as I frowned. I didn't like the sound of mad.

-That's where I went the first time I came to Wonderland, she added, still grinning, almost like the cat.

We walked for a bit, and when we were about to exit the woods, I heard a sharp 'Ouch!'

-Are you okay, Alice? I asked looking at her confused look.

-Why would you think I'm not?

-You said 'Ouch!'. Peeta answered for me.

I took another step forward, when Alice yelped.

 

-Katniss, you stepped on Violet! she shouted angrily. Apologize right away! she pointed where my foot was just moments ago, and I saw a little violet, crushed to the ground. I looked Alice's way, with raised eyebrows. She crossed her arms and turned her head away, her eyes closed. I looked closer at the flower and noticed it had a face, well that was strange! The face seemed quite angry.

-I'm sorry... I said hesitantly.

-It's ok, love, the little flower responded, making me shudder. It looked at me amazed.

-You mustn't be from these parts, are you? it asked. Well in that case, welcome to Wonderland! I think miss Alice is taking you to the Mad Hatter, am I right? I nodded.

Alice grabbed my arm, causing me to trip, and we continued our journey. The cat had disappeared from Alice's arms, but she didn't seem to care.

 

We got out of the big forest, and into a colorful garden. There were tiger-lilies, roses, violets, and larkspurs spread around it. And they were talking. All of them. The murmur was loud and I tried to listen to the conversations, but all I got were some meaningless words: 'the rabbit's train'. How could a rabbit own a train? Alice suddenly stopped and started talking to a tiger-lily on the side of the path.

-Ooh, that's interesting! So you say they come from mister Snow's part of the garden? the flower asked.

-Yes! That is curious, I thought he and the Queen had a deal, Alice said before saying goodbye to the flower.

 

The lily started then spreading the news and in a matter of 5 minutes, the whole garden was gossiping about it. I asked Alice to get us out of there immediately, because there was too much noise for me, and so we did.
