The girl watched the roof of her room from her bed. She was going to get up soon. Aleksandr, Nolan and Nicolai were waiting downstairs. While Leonardo waited in the upper levels. Her name was Alice…that was her real name anyway; her codename was Saver-Blue. She rose in her pyjamas took some clean clothes from her drawers and grabbed her towel from the side of her room, and then she traipsed down the stairs into what was called the Bathroom Entryway. It contained several sinks and the toilet, as well as a rack for clothes. She stripped, put her pyjamas on the rack, along with her clean clothes and opened the door to the Bathroom Proper, steam hissed into her face and she was met with the sight of a completely naked Nolan. Both stood completely still and couldn’t help being drawn to look each other up and down.
“Umm” Nolan stammered.
“Oh” Alice stammered. Her blonde-brown hair toppled across her shoulders as her amber eyes watched him. He pointed to her chest.
“Nice ti…” then the door slammed in his face.
“Rrrr” Alice growled and redressed in her clothes, then stormed out, dumped her pyjamas in her room and stormed downstairs.
“Problems?” Nicolai asked. He was like the parent of their little group of misfits, with white hair and grey eyes he seemed far older than he was.
“Something with Nolan I bet” Aleksandr laughed. He leaned against a wall eating a bowl of cereal while numerous news channels showed the same images. A man turning into a giant hawk. Alice grabbed a plate and some of Nicolai’ fresh blueberry pancakes and dumped herself at the table. Then Nolan appeared. He opened his mouth to say something, but the knife sitting two inches form Alice turned him away form that, instead he grabbed some pancakes and ate noisily with his hands. A mouse ran along the floor. Alice screamed.
“Get it away!!!” she grabbed at the knife but it went skittering away. Nolan and Aleksandr were practically falling over laughing. Nicolai sighed and clicked his finger and the mouse turned into a cat.
“Better?” he asked.
“Much” Alice replied. Aleksandr continued to laugh. Alice clicked her finger and his clothes turned to water which splashed onto the floor.
“Aaah!” he screamed. Alice grinned and Aleksandr rushed to cover himself up. He dashed from the room, then He appeared. Leonardo-Codename Cheshire Cat. Twin emerald eyes with slit pupils stared at her. He smiled his Cheshire Cat smile and turned to Alice.
“Mad Hatter?” Leonardo called. Nicolai spun.
“Yessir?” he asked.
“Two sugars in my tea he stated then reversed a chair around and faced Alice, sitting in it in the anti-authoritarian posture.
“Leonardo” Alice inclined her head.
“Saver-Blue” Leonardo replied.
“You realise we don’t have time for the formalities right?” Alice asked.
“Of course…White Rabbit and The Knave will accompany you to your next location” Leonardo stated.
“No objections?” Alice shook her head. “Good” he pronounced and vanished.
