wonderland

I'll take you away, I'll keep you hidden. I'll protect you, I'll love you. Now that we're here we can do what we want. We can be who we want to be. This is our life, this is our beginning and our ending, this is our happily ever after. (The last of the 'tomorrowland' trilogy)

"…Switzerland," I breathed. "Damn, I love Switzerland." I stepped out onto the grassy yard. The sun was hot, the wind warm, I loved July.

I've come to learn the new language, well attempted. It was the neutral country and I didn't have to worry about the outside world...really. It was like I was in my own little world; my very own bubble.

I loved the way the trees grew and how the snowy mountain caps looked down at me even in the heat of summer. I never put my hair up in a bun, and always let it flow easily in the breeze. My clothing is never fitted and I like the new comfort of not having to dress up to go in public.

Sure when Liam takes me into the big city--it has to be almost an emergency to take me there--we'll still dress in disguises. You can never be sure enough.

"Bo...what are you doing?"

I turned around and the brightest smile appeared on my lips. "Waiting for you," I came closer to him and wrapped my arms around his neck. "Where have you been?"

"Oh nowhere that needs to worry your pretty little head," he said in return. "How was your day?"

"Good, but you weren't here like usual. Bergeda had an entire meal set out for you and you weren't here. How don't I know you had another girl?"

I loosened my arms and turned away. The thought has been on my mind for awhile. He leaves before I wake up and mostly only comes home when I'm asleep. Switzerland Liam is different. He has gained his independence and I have gained nothing but...well nothing.

I'm in a beautiful country and have yet to see it for myself. It upsets me. And Bergeda, the house maid, she's kind and I enjoy her company...until she forgets I'm not all that great at German. Things get jumbled and Liam's not here to unscramble them.

Of course I don't want to depend on him, but when he throws me in a situation I have yet to comprehend, I need him here. It's saddening to think one cannot compel and find reassurance in themselves.

But I cannot.

I sometimes miss England. I miss the everyday rain, and the sound of the cars on the streets. I miss a lot of things, but then again I miss my mom. Is she still in South Africa? How were the elephants? Is my dad even the prime minister anymore? What about Louis and Harry, are they still together? What has happened to everyone?

I needed to know. I craved to know.

"Bo," he said almost firmly. "There's no one but you. What has gotten into you? Do you want to go back to Geneva for a day?"

"No, Liam, I don't want to go to Geneva for a day. I want to know what's going on back home."

"I told you. They can't know where we are, and we can't ask for updates. We should just accept the fact that we are dead to them."

"Are we considered dead to the entire world?"

"For right now, yes. Bo, it's only been a couple months since we left. One day they'll know, but for now, we are invisible. Besides," he started again as he stepped closer, closing the distance in between us. "We have a blue sky and white clouds where they have grey skies and grey clouds. This place is happier, I can tell you're happier. The glow in your face, you're beautiful. This place was made for you."

I nodded, almost in close embarrassment. Then almost breathlessly I said, "Yeah, I guess it was."
