Getting Better Acquainted

@tic-tock-goes-the-croc

It had been over a week since she’d come out James’ mirror. Things were still new and often baffling to her, but if Wonderland had shown her one thing, it was that she could adapt no matter the environment.

She’d been given a crash course in modern technology. Most of it was so far out of what she’d experienced that she had to just accept that things worked the way they said. Thinking on it too hard gave her a headache.

James had procured her a phone, and Alice had learned enough to text and call both Harker and James. She still had been learning what the strange, brightly colored buttons on the screen meant. What had James called them? Apps?

The lingo was bewildering. Alice wasn’t sure she’d ever get used to it.

After Harker had texted her to let her know that she wouldn’t be returning that evening, Alice decided to call James and see if he was busy. If he didn’t pick up, well, then she’d leave a message.
