"What is life, if it isn't a game?"
If a child is provided with nothing, he will invent his own games, using anything available.

That was all.

There was nothing more to it, nothing personal or vindictive, she was just bored and needed to play, that was all.

That has always been all. There is nothing more to it, there never has been. She doesn't kill because she wants to, she feels nothing even when she brings the blade down - but she kills because she needs to, its a game and its amusing to see the blood splutter and gush in all directions, even though her dress always get dirtied, and even though she can taste something wet and salty on her tongue, and something hot running down her cheeks, She wonders what it is, but never bothers enough to find out, because she hates the colour red and wants to get clean as soon as possible, and this is just how the world works.

* * *

She sat on a throne, surrounded by a sea of dolls.

"I'm bored." she announced to no one in particular, making a murmur go around the room. This might have been strange if the 'dolls' really were dolls, but in reality, they were the Courtiers of the Queen of Hearts, sovereign ruler of Wonderland, ruling the land with an iron fist clad in a gentle smile and innocent eyes.

To her, they were faceless, nameless dolls. Toys meant for her own amusement that never amounted to anything. Things she broke and threw away as she pleased, because that was just the way of the world she lived in.

And they were all broken. She knew because she had been the person to break them slowly, the gentle smile never fading from her lips even as crimson dripped down them.

"Its boring to play with the same dolls again and again, isn't it, Little Rabbit?" she addressed her favourite doll, and the only one who had a name among the crowd, completely disregarding the others, who shivered as a sweet smile - even sweeter than the normal ones -, which could only mean one thing. The Queen was plotting something, and that something was going to involve a lot of sadism and pure evil.

"But that's fine, just fine. Because new ones will be arriving soon. Will you prepare a message for the Chains? Tell them I want to play a little game."
