Alice and the Keeper of Hearts

By AbbyRose7711

Romance / Fantasy

Summon Alice!

Prologue

In Wonderland, there is a curse that was set upon both sons of the Queens. It has been said that a battle between the two ended in horror as both became cursed after the Red Queen's son spell backfired on him. You see… when the White Queen's son falls in love with a girl the curse casts a spell on the girl and Wonderland is faced with another girl lost at sea due to throwing herself off Topsy Turvey Cliff. However, the Red Queen's son could never truly love with a soul contained in darkness. Like all curses, something is able to break them but not everything in Wonderland is simple… which is where Alice is needed once again…

Chapter I
Part I: Curse
Summon Alice!

"My Queen… Your son has arrived." A guard bowed as he stood in front of the Queen of Heart's throne. She looked down at him and waved her hand as her son walked into the palace room and quickly stood beside his mother. His hair was messy, the color a ravens, eyes a blood red, skin pale like his mother's, and he was tall unlike his mother AND father (though his father passed away many years ago).

"My son! Dear Sebastian why are you getting so skinny?!" The Queen of Hearts cried when she looked at her son from head to toe.

"That's what the girls are looking for. Skinny boys, mother," Sebastian said holding his mother's hands.

"Well make those girls LOVE you. I'm sure you'll find someone. Here-" She tossed him a thick leather brown book. "Look and see if any of those girls are set up to your standards." Sebastian sat on the steps near his mother looking through the photos of everyone that lived in Wonderland. The doors swung open and the Queen's boyfriend, Mason, walked inside; his uniform glittering in the sunlight through the windows as he walked up towards his beau and kissed her hand.

"And how are we today, lovely?" Mason cooed.

"Better now that you're here." The Queen blushed

"What is your son doing?"

"Choosing his bride!"

"Hasn't he looked through that book a million times enough to know that none of those girls in there are his type? Shouldn't we just start searching in the other kingdoms?"

"NO! My son will choose to marry as he so pleases and if she can't love him back then off with her head!

"I'm sorry, my Queen." Mason bowed.

"Mother… why haven't I ever seen her before?" Sebastian questioned when he showed his mother the photograph of a girl. His mother studied the girl's photo before sighing.

"That's Alice, dear. She doesn't live here. I haven't seen her since that time she painted my flowers red. Sorry sweetie but that's the one girl you can't marry!"

"But mother you told me I could marry anybody I want!"

"Well that's true but she doesn't live here-"

"THEN GO FIND HER!"

His mother jumped a little in her seat when her own son yelled at her. Though he may only be eighteen years old, he was a hard man to get past once you got on his bad side. He was in fact a sorcerer after all.

"Yes…" She whistled to her guards and quickly they appeared.

"Go bring Alice back. NOW!" The Queen screamed.

"But… We don't know where she is…" A guard squeaked.

"THEN GO FIND HER!"

"I can help you!" A girl from the other side of the room shouted.

"Who is she?" The Queen asked Mason.

"Uh… Mary Beth I believe. She just joined the military after we took over her village."

"Mary Hath-"

"Beth, my Queen." Mary Beth corrected her before bowing.

"Yes… Beth… How can you find Alice?"

"Simple! Last time she was here she fell through the hole that connects us to her world. All we need is someone to go up there and get her down here." Mary Beth explained looking at her glossy red nails.

"A hole?"

"Yeah a rabbit hole."

"A rabbit hole… hmm."

"My Queen?" Mason asked.

"MASON! Fetch me that white rabbit that brought her down here the last time…"


"WHITE RABBIT!" The Queen shouted when the White Rabbit was tossed in front of the Queen's throne.

"Y-Yes?" The White Rabbit squeaked. He looked over at Sebastian who was smirking, his red eyes glittering with evil. The White Rabbit hated the royal's red glittering eyes. He brushed the dirt off his jacket and fixed his glasses, his clock clicking in his pocket.

"Remember that girl, Alice, who had that horrible blue dress and talked nonsense?" The Queen asked.

"Yes?"

"Bring her back here… She is the only maiden that can fill my heart with love," Sebastian said holding his fist over his heart. The White Rabbit looked at him and rolled his eyes before standing up.

"Can't do madam' or sir. She needs to dream about this place before I have any chance of getting there."

"WELL THEN MAKE HER DREAM OF THIS PLACE!"

"But- But how my lady?"

"I can do it! I can even send you there without her dreaming of this place." Sebastian snorted.

"My son you are truly amazing!"

"Well I am a sorcerer after all." He said adjusting his black gloves.

"Then hop to it! I want her here by tomorrow!" The Queen shouted happily before getting off of her throne and following Mason to another room in her castle. Her attendants followed the screaming Queen carrying her precious red poodle and list of people to kill.

"Well Rabbit let's go."

"Are you coming with?"

"Hell no. I'm not getting myself dirty just for some girl. Besides I gave you the orders to go get her," Sebastian snarled before grabbing the Rabbit's paw and pulling him out of the throne room. Outside of the windows stood the Hatter with a small mouse on his shoulder. Hatter's pierce green eyes looked on in horror as their friend, White Rabbit, noticed them and mouthed the word:help before the doors closed leaving the throne room empty.

"Sebastian is trying to get Alice to come back here!" The mouse squeaked.

"Alice? Why would he want her here?" Hatter asked the mouse.

"Because! He wants to marry her!"

"MARRY HER! Seems oddly ridiculous since the boy is about as romantic as dead flowers."

"Should we follow them?" The mouse asked him.

"Indeed! Even better… We're going to visit Alice herself…." The Hatter said before grinning at the little mouse and throwing his hat on.
