Alice reveled in the beauty of the ballroom before her. She never knew Wonderland could look so elegant. Or that such a place within it existed where it appeared to be normal. Part of her didn't like it. But the voice next to her soothed her; "It's a place to get away from all the... Madness.. Sometimes it gets to be a little over-bearing. Don't you think?" She smiled. "No, I don't. I enjoy it. But I can understand what you mean, at least." The Knight smiled. "Being the Knight of Wonderland isn't easy when you're surrounded by Mad-Men who don't understand that you're not trying to control them. Merely protect them from anything ever becoming the way it was under the Red Queen." She nodded. Music began playing as soon as he snapped his fingers. It was being played by dancing flowers. She knew it couldn't be too normal in here. He got on one knee. "May I have this dance?" "Of course, dear knight." He pulled her into his arms to dance. She felt strange, but right. The Hatter had told her it was only best for her to find someone. She disagreed for a long time. She didn't believe she'd find anyone. But the Knight had rescued her when she felt most lost. When Wonderland seemed to want to swallow her whole, not revel in her presence. He showed her stability among the madness. After all, a balance was needed. As she thought, he kissed her. It seemed as though everything in that ballroom disappeared. All she felt was his lips on hers. And the rocking-horse-flies in her stomach. (Had she accidentally swallowed one? No... It was the feeling she'd not felt in a long time.. Except stronger.) She felt herself kiss him back, and for once, she felt secure. Like everything made sense, in a world that wasn't meant to. It felt right. Something, finally, felt right.
