Elliot shrugged his shoulders. “It’s not important…”, he said and leant his back against the wall, his hands in his pockets. “I’d prefer to talk about what we do now… I want to get out of this madness as soon as possible. And on our way I wouldn’t mind to kill the hatter and the Queen.”
"Well I honestly don’t think that killing anyone is an option." She stated before pacing back and forth in the room. "I have an idea but it may take some time. You’ll have to be healed and such before we can even do anything…" Red explained before Shade, her wolf chain, appeared next to her and sat down. "Shade can help us with some of it, but we need to find that stupid rabbit first in order to get out of here."
Elliot sighed loudly. “Yeah, one moment…”, he answered and unlocked the door, opening it. He didn’t look at her, feeling ashamed for the large bruise in his face. Quickly he took her hand and pulled Red inside the room, so he could close and lock the door again. “Sorry, this feels safer…..”, he mumbled.
"Trust me I agree with you…" Red said honestly as she rubbed her arm for a moment. The girl looked back up at him and saw the bruise, "what happened?! Did the hatter do this to you?" She asked in a panic as her worry became a bit more obvious.
When I pushed you aside and jumped in, the truck slammed into me.
The color of my splashed blood reflected off your eyes and your robotic body.
The seemingly annoyed heat haze was laughing, as though saying "Take that!"
Elliot immediately stood up from his bed and went to the door which he had locked after the hatter had left. “Who’s knocking?”, he asked, sounding much stronger than before. He bit his lip, closing his eyes, hoping there would be anyone but the hatter.
"It’s Red…" She said before glancing down both hallways, she had this awful feeling in her gut for some reason. It was like something bad was going to happen soon, but she couldn’t tell what it was. "Can I please come in?" She sounded nervous, and scared when she spoke. I don’t like it here…
The hatter smiled at Red to thank her and then went in. “Ben, Q. wants you to go to bed and rest for a while before we have dinner.” Ben at once protested: “No, I’m talking to Red! And I’m not tired, not even a bit!!” The hatter approached to the boy and knelt down in front of him: “Come on, be a good boy and do as said. I’ve already prepared a sleeping tea for you, so you will be able to sleep.” He lifted the youth up in his arms to carry him to his room. “….but I don’t like this……”, Ben mumbled, knowing it was no use.
"I’ll see you later Ben." Red said with a smile as she watched the hatter take him away. The girl stood in her room for a moment then sighed, "I should probably check on Elliot and make sure that everything is okay…" She said to herself before walking over to the door that led to the hallway. She left the room and closed the door behind her, the girl walked over to the room next door and knocked on it.
