Prompt 14

The Garden Party

The sun blazed
Insects buzzed in air heavily scented by honeysuckle
The table was set
China teacups
Fancy cakes on ornate metal stands
Cucumber sandwiches and freshly picked strawberries

The mad hatter (her father) played croquet on the lawn
With Tweedledum and Tweedledee (her younger brothers)
But there was a distinct lack of hedgehogs and flamingos
The Queen (her mother) was screaming
Scattering the headless servants in all directions like card people
The cat casually scrutinized the pig child (her baby sister)

Shutting her book
Alice considered
If she was actually in Wonderland



[Prompt: Tell me an old story – give it your own twist.]
