Alde ignored Cheshire's sarcastic remark. Now was not the time to get angry. She had something to do, and she needed both of them. Alive and intact. Because experience had taught her that while people tended to listen better with one of their limbs missing, both Cheshire and Caterpillar would probably reach their breaking point if she tried. And she wasn't about to let this wonderful game go to waste because two powerful Chains had gone wreaking havoc through Wonderland.

"Indeed we don't." she offered, taking a measured sip of her tea. "But don't you want to?" she smiled at Caterpillar - Absolem, she supposed she could call the other by his given name for a while now, as a peace offering for being honest with her - "Apparently you do. That's exactly where this game I proposed comes in."

She took a deep breath. "Through certain means, I have secured ten people from the Outer World. Ten of the most powerful Chains will be Contracting with them. The rules are simple, eliminate the other Contractors - and you and your Contractors are free to go to the Outer World."

She paused a moment for effect, before continuing.

"That's what you'll tell them. But because you two were so nice as to not hide from Little Rabbit, I'll let you in on a little secret. You see, the winning Candidate isn't going to go anywhere. Its only the Chain that gets to walk out of Wonderland. The Contractor is going to stay back here and take the place of the Chain they were Contracted to."

Now to make the game a little more interesting. Alde idly wondered what they would do. Both Cheshire and Caterpillar were unpredictable people - hell, all of the Chains were - and telling them this little extra bit of information ... would prove to be rather a dilemma for them, wouldn't it?

And it would be an even larger dilemma for the other Chains when they finally got to know, after forming emotional bonds with their own Contractors. She didn't really know why she had told these two the truth already - well, a part of it, at least - but she didn't particularly care.

It would be boring to watch everyone stumble through the same things, wouldn't it?
She needed to play around a little bit more, because after this would be ...

"Think carefully on it." she muttered.
