I canâ€™t die. I just canâ€™t. Why, why did she have to put me here? (Paces) Chained up like this (Show cuffs). After all I have done for her, wouldn't you think that she would trust me? For goodness sake, I carry around her crown on a velvet cushion. Doesn't she know that all of those croquet games don't set themselves up? And with the ease with which she takes off people's heads, I certainly wouldn't be stupid enough to steal her tasteless tarts. I donâ€™t even like those tarts. Oh, now that old rabbit is tooting his horn again, making himself feel all fancy and important. (Rolls eyes) I remember when he was only a baby. Just as annoying as he is now, and always getting under your feet (fades away in deep thought).
Oh, well here's the crazy Hatter. Goodness, he brought his cup and bread here too. He sure is mad, but he never used to be. (Deep thought) I remember when he was as sane as everyone else, not that thatâ€™s saying much (Laughs to himself). I clearly remember the day that he and Time went to the Queen's concert. The night started off well, but, as usual, the impatient Queen got a bit carried away and finally yelled out that the Hatter was murdering Time. Time didn't seem to get upset at first, but after a while, he started to believe what the Queen was saying. Time and the Hatter have never gotten on well since. Now, the Hatter is always stuck at tea time, or so he says. Still, I do hope that he doesn't agree with the Queen. One witness, even a crazy one, agreeing with her would be enough to get my head taken off and I just know that I canâ€™t die because of something that I didnâ€™t even do.
Well, here's this obnoxious rabbit again. Here he goes, always talking but never saying anything. Oh, the cook has arrived, and with the pepper too. I was never around to see the cook come here. She arrived long before I did. I remember clearly the day that I fell into the Lake. At first I was scared, but my curiosity was too strong and in the end I just swam deeper and deeper down. It seemed to go on forever, and the further I went down, the stranger things got. I found all sorts of strange cups and saucers sitting on benches until I fell down into this place. It was quite difficult to fit in, but after time, I got a job as the knave.
I guess that being a knave is a good job, but it gets difficult and the Queen is very frustrating. What I really would like is to be a baker. Never having to tend to what someone else wants me to do and be able to just cook bread all day with my entire family. I hope that once this year is over I can start my own bakery and I can live for the years to come with my family toasting fresh bread. That is if I donâ€™t get killed. I donâ€™t know what I would do if I never see my family again. (Fearful) Anyway, what was I saying? (Shakes head) Oh yes, the cook. I would staple my tongue to the ground with a croquet hoop if they actually get her to talk about anything except pepper, pepper, pepper. I am glad though. At least I know that she won't agree with the Queen. Ha, there she goes. Sneaky, sneaky cook, leaving in the confusion (Laughs to himself). I wonder who the damn rabbit will call next. Not that it matters, if the Queen wants me killed, then the Queen will get her wish.
Alice? Who's this? I have never heard of an Alice before. And I know everyone. Oh, I think that she was the one who almost got her head cut off by the Queen, even though the Queen is too stupid to realise that no one ever gets their heads cut off anyway. And now this rabbit is taking over again, reading out some piece of paper that they're probably going to say I wrote. Then the Queen would accuse me of stealing the tarts and I would be done for. But back to the point, Alice must have been the one at the croquet game. My goodness, she has grown quite a bit since then. Well, let's see what she has to say. She's terribly uncoordinated. But I suppose that is to be expected when one is of such a height.
I do hope that this Alice sees the truth. What does it even matter, I donâ€™t have a chance of survival anyway. I just hope that I can say goodbye to my family one last time. Maybe this Alice will be able to persuade the Queen enough to change her mind, but I will need a miracle. Well, she seems to be able to stand up to the Queen. I just hope that she doesn't get killed... â€œJust a pack of CARDS!?â€ (Struggles to break the cuffs). Well I thought she was on my side, but it doesnâ€™t seem like it. Now, if I want to see my family again I would need more than a miracle. I would need to escape. But, if I time it right. I could cause a distraction. Already the jury seems to be in a mess, and the Queen doesnâ€™t seem to have gotten over Aliceâ€™s threats and disappearance herself. I can do it. This is my chance. My last chance for freedom.
