And so our tale starts, with but a quiet night-in at Madeline Hatter's personal dorm.. No, no! They're squabbling, can't you see it? Kitty Cheshire is up to no good tonight! They were supposed to have a tea-party with both; royals and rebels, but hardly anyone has shown! And who is to blame for that? No way, Kitty's been laying in bed all-day! Madeline has grown rather discontented, her face screwed up in a funny look and she's glaring up at the ceiling. "Quieet! I can't even hear myself think, you guys!" She crossed her arms, and pouted, "Now, if you two can behave, I can drink the rest of my tea before Raven and Blondie get here! They promised!" Earl Grey, her small grey mouse came over balancing a tea-pot on his head. "Oh, my favorite! Thank you Earl Grey!" Very well, as I was saying, there has been a lack of tea-goers on this day. What could they possibly be doing? I am sure that we will find out. Kitty looked to Maddie, who had yelled out before going back to her tea. She was grinning, and decided to poke some fun at the girl. "Maddie, are you talking to the birds again? I think we could roast one," she giggled, covering her mouth with purple-painted nails. She stood up from her bed, stretching out slowly as she got herself up. "No, I was talking to the narrators! Hehe, they're a bundle of nuts! Wait, or are they talking birds? Oh crumpets!" She tapped her chin, pondering seriously about the matter before giving up and setting herself to a new task. Madeline reset up her tea-set on the small table. Now with four cups of tea, rather than two cups of tea. "Some tea, Kitty? I am sure they are tip-top-top of the line!" What was this girl going on about? Kitty shook her head, and couldn't help but to laugh and take a tea-cup from the crazy girl. She took a sip of the tea, "Yea, nice tea!" She set it down on the vanity near the window in their room, pulled a brush from the top of it and began to groom her hair so that she could put it into a braid. Her cat ear head-bands adorned around the mirror, and she sipped her tea occasionally.
