IvanI sit down sipping my sweeter than sweet tea.
Allysina: I step into the clearing where the Hatter's table sits, automatically ducking as the march hare throws a teacup in my direction. I've learned from the last few times when he actually hit me... You're late for tea, he would complain, but the tea party never ended so I was always late. "Am I late? Or are you all simply early?" I retorted and then notices an extra chair filled at this tea party. "Ah, a guest!" I said, leaning down practically in his face. "And whom might this guest be~?!"
ivanMy eyes closed a ask politely, "would you mind stepping back and I'd gladly tell you."
Allysina: My smile never faltering, I took one large step back and continued to stare at him, smiling.
ivani open my eyes, stand, and bow. "I am Ivan Roy Fetcher. and you are?"
Allysina: I blink for a moment in surprise at his politeness, not used to such formality living wit the Hatter. I curtsied awkwardly in response. "Alyssina Lunesca Crysna"
Ivan"Beautiful name. that of a princess"
Allysina: I felt heat rising to my cheeks, such a strange feeling I wasn't used to. Even my tongue felt oddly heavy as I tried to speak again, "A-ah... Just that of a mad peasant girl... But what brings you to the Hatter's abode~?"
IvanI smile at her warmly, "the tea."
Allysina: I tilted my head, curiously. "The tea you say? Where Underland from are you?" I asked, finding nothing wrong with the strange wording of my question. I had definitely lived with the Hatter for far too long.
Ivan"Hopefully here. I've lived any and everywhere." I laugh a little at her question.
Allysina: "You wish to live here? And everywhere you say...? The kingdoms white and red as well?" I asked, curiously. If this man had indeed lived in the Kingdom of Hearts I had never come across him, at least as far as I could remember.
Ivan"for a very short period of time."
Allysina: "I see... Well, the Hatter's land welcomes all strangers and travelers so long as they hold no allegiance to the Bloody Big Head~" I answered with a smile, welcoming him.
Ivan"i would kill that bloody big head. she killed my family." i hiss my hand moving to my sword then moving away. "sry. i have a hatered towards her like no other."
Allysina: "Ah, but you shouldn't apologize, it seems that it's something we share" I answered, holding up the red sheathed dagger in my hand.
Ivan"i was hoping i didnt scare you. thats why i apologized. but im glad we share a similar hate."
Allysina: "It takes a lot to scare one who was raised in... THAT place." I said, avoiding even mentioning the name of such a wretched place. "But welcome~! It will be quite interesting to have a traveler to speak to~" I ducked at a flying plate and it smashed into a tree. "If you don't change your mind about staying here that is~"
ivana cup comes flying at me and i draw my sword slashing it in half. then i smile at her, "not at all."
Allysina: "Quite the interesting stranger, Sir Fetcher~" I say as I watched him cut the cup clean in half. He had definitely had practice with a sword...
Ivan"please call me Ivan." i put my sword away and sit down sipping my tea again.
Allysina: I smile and take a seat next to him. "Now why would a knight come here, I'm wondering?"
Ivan"Knight? wat makes you say that?"
Allysina: "Your skill with a sword, you've quite obviously had training..." I answered, sipping from a chipped cup of black tea.
ivan"my father was a knight. he trained me. but i never wanted to be one."
Allysina: "But you're lucky. My parents were merely servants, so I have no training at all, just what I've learned to survive out here. With skills like yours I'm sure you'd be welcome by the resistance and those at the White Castle..."
IvanI look at her blankly.
Allysina: "Don't you ever want to join the resistance?"
Ivan"I am part of it. I'm not a knight because I'm an assain. My job is to kill the red queen."
Allysina: "Really?! A real life member of the resistance?!" I asked, excited.
ivan"Yes but keep it on the down low. Okay?"
Allysina: I nodded. "But wow... I've wanted to join for some time now... but I could never bring myself to get passed the white gates."
Ivan"Yea, but I was raised there."
Allysina: "You were raised in the White Castle? It must have been so nice there..."
ivan"I hated it. I ran away countless times. I always came back after a few days. Until my father died then I ran and never came back."
Allysina: "Oh... I'm sorry. I was raised... on the opposite side, at the Heart Castle. But where did you run to?"
Allysina: "So you've been everywhere in Underland?"
Ivan"pretty much.. it isn't that great.."
Allysina: "It's amazing! I've never wandered far from the Hatter's land... I always wondered what it was like out there."
Ivan"Its nothing great now that the red queen has destroyed it."
Allysina: "But I'm sure that it will go back one day... When the White Queen reclaims the crown."
Allysina: "When the Red Queen is gone..." I sighed in content, picturing it, a grin spreading across my face.
ivanI catch a cup that flies at her head and throw it back, missing and hitting a tree.
Allysina: I blink. "Thank you... Sorry, living with the Hatter for such a long time messes with your head."
Allysina: "How long do you plan on staying? It seems like you travel a lot, so..."
ivan"As long as I can this time."
Allysina: I smiled, "Then I look forward to it. Would you like me to show you to a guest room?"
ivan"Sure. If you would please."
Allysina: I got up from my seat and motioned for him to follow me into the old building behind the hatter's table, avoiding a flying fork that stuck into the door. "The Hatter and hare usually sleep at the table for some reason and melliumpkin is always asleep in the tea pot, so there is plenty of room for you to stay in here."
Allysina: "My room is here." I said, standing in front of the door. "All the other rooms down this hall are empty, so you can choose whichever one suits your taste~ Ah, but I warn you, you may find a few that are a bit strange. Furniture on the ceiling and all that..."
ivan"Nice.." I open the door across from hers and its a normal room. "I'll take this one."
Allysina: "Okay~ Feel free to ask for anything~" I said, bowing playfully.
ivanI laugh and blow her a playful kiss and say, "night!"
