I Wonder What…

Our ‘100 Word Challenge’ this week, explained here, where you can also find links to the other responses, is to write 100 words in addition to the eight words which form the opening sentence in my attempt below. Now, I don’t presume to be able to write according to the calibre of the famous mathematician known all over the world as ‘Lewis Carroll,’ but if my piece of text were to be added to ‘Alice in Wonderland’ it would have to be placed after the third paragraph in chapter one.

“What was the rabbit late for?” wondered Alice. “Perhaps there’s a rabbit wedding somewhere,” she thought. Alice knew that rabbits had large families, and thought a rabbit  wedding would be rather jolly. What would a rabbit church be like? Would all the guests be rabbits, or would there be other animals there? Or maybe the rabbit had a lecture to get to, perhaps was even the lecturer, like her friend, Mr. Dodgson. Or the rabbit could be something to do with politics. (Alice didn’t know quite what ‘politics’ meant, but she knew it was something her father and his friends had meetings about.) She headed towards the hole.
