She has much younger brother, Thomas, who is only five now and needed more attention for the last few years than Tracy, but the girl felt neglected by her mother.
Tracy decided to try her chances as a school newspaper reporter, she has plans to become a professional journalist in the future.

Other/Equipment&Abilities: Tracy still remembers some things her father used to tell her. She knows how to kick. She did use her boots as a weapon one evening when she was attacked walking street after dark - her father used to explain her about the target ;). In her right boot she carries a foldable Swiss knife.

Story:

Tracy Ford, a teen journalist - well... an amateur working for a school (mainly online) newspaper, but still... - was on her way to complete research for her another subject. A historical one this time. It was a high probability that in the wartime years of 1940s, in one of the houses on the outskirts of her hometown the money forgery had been built and used. The forgers had never been caught, and the place had never been found, but the urban legends had arisen...

The case started just as any other. Digging through documents, asking old people about the place... She had been sure it must had been another "urban legend". But since she had gotten deeper and deeper, it turned out to be different. She had finally located the the house - a large, Victorian one. The forger's machines wer supposed to be in the basement. The stories might have been true!

On a second day of her "work" by the house, after scouting the area a day before, when she had made herself sure there were nobody living there, apart from some cats, she was hiding behind the trees, watching the house again. There was nobody on the street (the street was seldom used anyway) and Tracy decided to take a chance. She planned to go, look for the forgery machine or other things left after forgers in the house's basement and return as soon as possible...

Without hesitation girl walked out of her hidden place, crossed the street and headed towards the mansion's wall. The wall was low, very old and neglected, it wasn't hard to go over it. She was in the garden now. She excitedly walked trough the neglected garden, remembering well the layout of the house and where the basement was (she had read the house plans at the city library two days earlier).

She reached the house wall at the backyard. 'It was somewhere here' she thought to herself looking for the basement window. She had planned to go through it into the basement. According to plans she'd easily fit (sometimes it's good to be a petite person). Tracy looked through the window. The basement was just like any other - a bit dark, cramped and probably dirty. She tried to see as much as she could... It was really dark...

Suddenly some movement distracted her attention. Something small and white was running the garden towards the smal forest located by the mansion.
A rabbit? The rabbit was about to turn and hide behind a plant, so Tracy started running after him. She didn't notice what was so strange, she was sure the rabbit was white, but had some sort of garment as well... Was the rabbit domesticated?

She followed the rabbit to the nearby forest, where he finally disappear in some sort of hole. The hole seemed to be way too big for a such small creature... Tracy was checking that out when suddenly she slipped and fell inside. It was a fantastic journey - falling down, or not, as the directions got blurry... She finally stopped in a spooky room with single table and several doors...

So begins...

Aria Walker



Aria rubbed her head, looking back at the tree she had rolled out from. She had thought that she must have entered an underground cave system, but when she turned around, it wasn't a cave that she saw.

It was a whole new world ...

Some of the trees had pink leaves, a bird with a spoon for a bill flew past her, and she could see islands floating in the far distance.

"Okay ...," Aria mumbled. "Either someone slipped me LSD or I seriously conked my head and now I'm dreaming." The forest she was in seemed rather thick and she felt the need to get out. "Gah ... not like it matters if I get out. It's a dream, I'll wake up sooner or later." Aria looked around one more time, walking over to a tree and gently touching its bark. It felt so real. She shook her head and walked forward.

Rustle Rustle Rustle

Aria looked around, her hearing wasn't the greatest, but whatever was rustling around sounded big enough to possibly run her down.

"Not gonna panic, not gonna panic," Aria whispered, looking for a good place to climb up. She spotted a good tree and quietly made her way to and up it. It was an easy climb, but by the time she felt at a safe distance, she was out of breath and a little light headed. Something she was used too. "I'll just wait up here until I wake up."

It didn't take long for her to feel comfy when something moved on her leg. She looked down, wishing she hadn't shortly after. A large spider, about the size her hand and as blue as the ocean, rested on her leg ... and it was looking right at her. She could feel a panic attack coming on. Then it barked.

"It barked," she choked out before promptly passing out and falling, with the spider still attached, out of the tree.

Tracy Ford


Tracy closed and opened her eyes. She repeated it. And then again... Didn't help anyway. She was still in that strange room with single round table and several doors... The setting was so familiar, she'd seen it before... On the table - a bottle with a card "drink me". The key. Doors of different sizes - the key probably could only fit to the smallest ones...

Girl grabbed the key and opened the smallest doors - so small she could not go through, big enough for a cat or medium-sized dog. On the other side - a strange meadow, plants with a pink leaves and something dark and heavy floating the sky in a distance... 'I'm in a friggin' Wonderland' She thought to herself.

The teen retreated to the room. She didn't want to drink the potion - she knew what would happen to her. She wanted to maintain her normal size. She checked if the key opened the other doors. Nope. 'I need to try a different approach.' she grinned to herself as she realized all the doors opened outwards. She chose the first doors she could go through, they were the first on the right from the small ones. She walked towards them and checked the lock.

She took her swiss knife off her right boot and chose the tool. She started working on the lock. At first she wanted to open it, but it was a solid stuff. She changed the tool and started unscrewing it. She managed to loosen the lock. The teen folded her knife and put it back to her boot 'that should be enough' a thought came through her mind. A kick of her heavy boots should be sufficient. Tracy aimed and kicked twice.

What she got for her efforts was beyond her expectations. There was a slight pain in her leg, but the doors were open... Luckily to her, the pain subdued quickly, as she was watching in disbelief what was on the other side. Unlike beyond the small doors, that were just a few feet away in the room's wall, there was a dark, dense forest. Tracy shrugged a little, as it was quite a dark place as well. The trees were so high, covering the sky almost completely...

Girl walked through the open door, passing the pieces of lock she kicked off. She was on the ground level and took a few steps. Suddenly she heard a noise behind her. She turned around to see the screws and pieces of lock moving and being placed on the doors again. Then the doors shut themselves down... and dissapeared.

Tracy swallowed hard. She hadn't expected THAT. She shrugged again, but turned around, took a deep breath and started walking. She was on some sort of path. All she had to do was to follow it. 'It needs to lead somewhere from the doors' She thought, trying to encourage herself. Girl started marching, not knowing exactly if she was walking deeper into the woods or walking off the forest. It was strange, but in spite of the obscurity, the forest was pleasantly warm.

After a long while of walking she started to feel tired. She needed some rest. Tracy stopped and looked around. She chose to sat herself down on a tree root sticking off the ground. She did it and leaned against the tree. It was so nice to rest. She closed her eyes. 'Just for a while...' she thought and fall asleep.

Willo the Wisp



Willo quickly flew around the trees and through the forest, it's movement naturally silent like the wind. It really did want to help it's blue spider friend since it's friend seemed to be having troubles. Looking around the woods they definitely were nice around this part of the forest. The canopy might be thick making the area naturally shadowy but the light that did shine through shined through in almost visible beams. The mixture of brightness gave the woods a sort of dim lighting which instilled it with a sort of enchanting feel to the whole place. Naturally Willo's phantasmal blue light served to give this already mysterious location an almost mystical atmosphere.


Despite it's earnest efforts the wisp couldn't manage to find a single not-wisp around. It was quite strange, very much so. Rare in Wonderland was there ever a space which someone didn't called home. Be it bug or beast or person, there was always something in the area. Where'd everyone go? Willo asked itself since it wasn't even sure there was anyone even listening.
That doubt was quickly shattered however when it spotted an interesting sight.

Over against a tree there slept a not-wisp. She was large and peachy but also black and blue. She looked rather friendly and nice for a not-wisp as well. She looked so peaceful too, sleeping with such serenity in the faded light of this forest. Willo had to find help but it was also curious as to what this being was. I wonder if that not-wisp wants to be my friend? There was only one way to find out.

"Hello not-wisp!" It cheerfully welcomed her, hovering a good five to ten feet from her slumbering form.

Tracy was awaken by some noise. Did somebody was trying to tak to her? She opend her eyes and got up quickly. She was happy of the nap she took. She was feeling strong and more focused now... Speaking of focus there was something above her head. Something unusual. She looked up. It was a light. At the beginning she took it for a sun light, shining trough leaves, but now it was obvious it's something different. "Hi, what are... I mean, who are you?" Tracy asked.

When the ligt spoke Tracy smiled again 'That must be the wonderland...' She thought to herself. "Hi, my name is Tracy, I'm a human and I'm far from home..." Girl knew it was a moment to inroduce herself "could you help me finding the way out of this forest? I guess I'm lost a bit..."
She didn't like admitting that, but she had a little choice.

She was listening to the words the creature was speaking.

Adrian got himself a drink and then sat down by Jaxon, he thought about what he first said about being only end to red headed girls but then thought about his next question. "I am into white haired girls." He smiled before taking a sip of his drink. He watched Jaxon throw water on the blonde girl, he hoped she would wake up. He looked up towards the stairs and back to Jaxon before Katarina came running down stairs looking pissed. "What's wrong Kat?"

She looked at him and flipped him off. "I don't have time for you. The ice queen's castle is on fire! Round up anyone you can and meet me there." She said and ran out the pub. Adrian's jaw dropped and he looked at Jaxon. "I'll go get Blake.." He said before running out the pub as well. He ran back up to the Dark forest and yelled in the entrance. "The ice queen's castle is on fire!!! Everyone had over there NOW!" He then ran after Katarina who was half way down the hill and already heading towards the snowy mountains, the way she dressed he had no idea how she was able to handle all that cold.

Willo the Wisp



Slowly but surely the not-wisp woke up. At first she just looked back at Willo kind of weird for a bit. After a little time the not-wisp replied.

"Hi, what are... I mean, who are you?"

Willo smiled a happy little smile. "I'm Willo the wisp!" It answered back to the friendly not-wisp's question.

"Hi, my name is Tracy, I'm a human and I'm far from home..."

Well now this was a fascinating sight indeed. Willo had never heard of a human before. It hadn't heard of many things before however but each new thing fascinated it none the less. What was even cooler to it was that this human had a name! Just like a wisp! Quite a novel idea the concept was. It wondered what other things had names, if any. "Hello Tracy the human!" Just saying the name was fun and exciting for it. "I'm far from home too! That's neat! I've never seen any humans back home though so you must be from somewhere else-somewhere else!" By somewhere else-somewhere else of course the wisp considered Wonderland somewhere else therefore if she wasn't from Wonderland then she was from somewhere else from this somewhere else.


"Could you help me finding the way out of this forest? I guess I'm lost a bit..."

"I can help! I don't know where the 'Out of this forest' is either but we can look for it together!" Willo offered it's assistance in it's extremely cheerful manner as usual. For a moment however Willo stopped bobbing about in it's energetic fashion, halting as it tried to collect it's thoughts. There was something I was doing before wasn't there?... Oh yes! It suddenly remembered why it ran to Tracy in the first place. "Wait! Before we go you gotta help! You gotta gotta gotta! My friends not well and I don't know what to do!" It implored her to assist it.

Willo darted off back towards blue spider friend, not leaving a lot of time for Tracy to reply before it's sudden departure. As it went it intentionally brushed up against the trees it passed leaving behind balls of blue flame about the size of a human fist. These flames were about the same temperature as the warm forest air, not hot but warm all the same. The fire did not harm the trees they were by as they flickered and waved in the wind.

Tracy Ford


Tracy felt deeply disappointed hearing the answers from that blue flaming cloud. Either this entity - Willo - was crazy or immature, like child. Whatever. >It< was probably useless to her.

She was surprised as Willo asked to help some sort of friend. 'What is it going to be this time, a green cloud?' she thought resigned a bit. She sighted 'perhaps this other entity has some informations' She looked up at balls of blue flame Willo was leaving behind him "Wait for me!" she said loudly and followed.

When they reached the destination and Willo showed her that "friend", she chuckled. It was a spider. Obviously a dead one. Not wanting to hurt Willo's feelings she tried to explain what had probably happened. "Look, this spider is unfortunately dead, that means it is inactive and will never be active again. I don't know what happened here, but I guess the spider was injured somehow, injured heavily. When injury is very heavy, when that happens, it is common for entities with a body, to stop being active, to die. I'm sorry, but there is nothing you could do and there is nothing we can do about it." She did her best. In fact, she was very proud of herself, with all the words she chose.

Tracy observed Willo, as the lights were changing. Willo seemed to be upset with the knews he received. "This is a wild forest. I know some beings, like wild animals, bury bodies of their dead companions. I'm going to do it now, OK?" Not waiting long for Willo's response, Tracy took her swiss knife off her boot, unfolded the knife and used it as a shovel taking a piece of dirt with spider on it, moving it towards the nearest tree. She delicately dropped the dead spider to the ground, digged a small hole by the tree, placed the spider there and covered it with dirt. She had known it's going to be eaten by ground worms, as it would've been eaten by the surface ones, but it was a difference. Maybe not significant, but still...

Girl got up, folded and hide her knife back and looked up at Willo. "I guess that's how it's supposed to be, let's go, OK? let's find the way out of this forest." If that light cloud had a psychic of a small child, it should be distracted, after a couple of yards, from these sad surroundings. And probably focus on something else, something more cheerful.

"Come on" Tracy said and started walking the path, leading them both out of that place.

Willo the Wisp



Willo whizzed ahead of Tracy by a bit of distance before it came to a halt. "Here! Here, Hereherehere. There's my friend, please help." It begged for the humans assistance. Tracy seemed to take a few step forwards and looked at the Blue Spider friend.

"Look, this spider is unfortunately dead, that means it is inactive and will never be active again. I don't know what happened here, but I guess the spider was injured somehow, injured heavily. When injury is very heavy, when that happens, it is common for entities with a body, to stop being active, to die. I'm sorry, but there is nothing you could do and there is nothing we can do about it."

"Y-you mean... There's nothing we can do?" Thanks to Tracy's helpful explanation Willo was starting to grasp the reality of the situation, even if just a little. It wasn't just sad like not being able to play or even worrying about whether it could make it here kind of sad. This was a very strong sadness, one which made it's blue flame change to a deeper, darker blue. Little blue flames dropped from it's eyes like tears, falling and burning up the grass beneath it. Luckily for the human the grass wasn't very dry though she was still in risk of a wildfire starting.

"This is a wild forest. I know some beings, like wild animals, bury bodies of their dead companions. I'm going to do it now, OK?"

Tracy took the spider's limp frame and set it down before digging a hole to bury it in. At this point Willo had so many questions it couldn't possibly ask them all in the period of time it had right now. It was just feeling so blue it could hardly make a coherent sound. It watched her bury the spider, laying it's friend to rest. It had no real idea what significance this process had but Willo wasn't all too concerned about the little details as the flames growing beneath it made clear.

"I guess that's how it's supposed to be, let's go, OK? let's find the way out of this forest."

It really didn't understand. Why is it supposed to be? Why did my friend die? All these questions and more roiled around in it's phantasmal noggin. It gently floated over to the spiders grave, a small trail of candle sized flames following in it's wake. "I'm sorry... That we couldn't play today." It spoke, it's eyes full of tears of hot flame. The barky blue not-wisp friend was friendly when I got past the barky stage. It only wanted to bark at strangers passing it's tree. Why... Why did blue not-wisp friend die? Willo did mourn the passing of it's friend. If the dirt hadn't been freshly dug then the fire would of probably climbed to the tree as well. As it was, the flames sizzled out after singeing the top of the earth below.

"Come on"

Tracy's voice roused Willo from it's thoughts. "O-okay..." It answered back before turning it's attention back to the earth under which it's friend's remains lay. "Goodbye friend." It bid it's last farewell to the blue spider friend before it solemnly drifted up behind Tracy, no more flames falling from it's eyes. As they left the scene of the murder the flames still burned, growing distant as the left. The possibility of the flames spreading was left in the hands of fate now. As for Willo, it saw that at least it still had another friend who was here with it too. On that thought, it realized that it hadn't even asked Tracy if she wanted to be it's friend. "Hey Tracy..." It started, it's voice still thick with sorrow. "Do you want to be friends?" It asked her, looking up with a bit of hope in it's eyes.

Adrian's heart ached, as if there was a hole in his chest, he held onto his heart with his free hand, his other hand was pushing against his stomach so that maybe the blood would not pour out of his body any faster then it already was with his hand on it already. He had saw everything that his sister was experiencing until she went unconscious. This usually happened when she was hurt, every time she even got the smallest of cuts it would suddenly appear on him as well. He took a deep breath as the queen came down the root ladder, he watched her carefully since Katarina was not outside yet.

The queen appeared to be fine, no cuts or bruises, yet she held onto her heart as if it was not there. She looked tired as if she were about to past out. Her eyes met Adrian's for a single second before the fire roared and three figures escaped from the castle. They were the last of the survivors, he could not recognize them until they came a bit closer. “Kat..” He whispered once he saw her. She looked horrible, and of course it was the spot that her shirt did not come down past that she was injured in. Of course that couldn't be really why it had happened however he liked to believe it was because he thought she wasn't very modest about the way that she dressed. He also noticed that Lux was there, and the person that had saved both Lux and Kat was Blake. He made a mental note just then to thank her some how for it later.

Adrian watched as Blake tried to heal Katarina, of course she wouldn't bleed to death now, but however being attacked with the magic blade would be something that nobody but Katarina could heal, with a lot of time. Next Blake made her way to him and healed him, he didn't say anything to her but a small “Thank you” with that, he crawled over to her and watched as her stomach lit up with a red light and when it disappeared she had a new tattoo, then a few seconds later his stomach did the same thing, it always burned when a new tattoo was made. He had never told anyone, not that they cared too much to ask but this was their curse. Anytime they were injured really bad they got a tattoo. If the two stood next to each other with no clothing on their upper bodies anyone would be able to see a map starting to form. Adrian sighed and dropped her hand that he was holding. This wasn't good, at all.

Jaxon finally showed up, after Blake had answered his question on what had happened to her, Adrian frowned before adding onto her answer. “Katarina won't wake up for at least 3 hours. Since she was attacked with her own blade she will be very ill as well. Also, the curse I share with her won't allow her to be active for at least three days at max. Yes, Blake has healed her, but she can't heal her from a magic tattoo, and that's what she just got. I got one as well but I am not the one that had the wound first so I am alright to move around. She is not.” Adrian tried to explain but felt as if he did not do such a good job.

She stood quietly as everything played out, when Blake asked her if she was alright she nodded, not taking her eyes away from her assassin. The Red Queen had to be stopped, or she needed to get her followers away from the Red Queen. She had to find or build a new castle soon, and keep everyone that gave her their loyalty with her. Just to be sure that the Red Queen could not get a hold of them.

Caitlyn sighed when Adrian explained to the others of the curse, he did a poor job but it would be hard for anyone but himself and Katarina to understand. If you didn't have it, it was hard to understand. “I apologize for this happening. I know who did it however... The Red Queen sent soulless puppets to do her dirty work. She knew that my only body guard was a Hatter, therefore she used black magic on the fire that her puppets used on my home.” She looked up at her once beautiful castle, the entire thing was not made out of real ice, it appeared to be but she had others that lived in the castle and she did not want them to freeze so it was a fake ice.

Caitlyn looked back at the small group with her, meeting everyone's eyes. “I cannot allow this to happen again. When I am well enough to use my magic I will help build a new castle. Then I will need any person who has given me their loyalty to live with me in the castle. I cannot have the Red Queen going after one of my loyal persons.”

Caitlyn was about to turn to head for the closest village at the edge of the snowy mountains, however she noticed a small girl that did not look like she belonged here. “Who is this?” She asked pointing to the blonde girl. If she was an outsider someone needed to keep a close eye on her so that she was able to return home one day. It would most likely be herself. She looked back towards Katarina and Adrian. “Adrian get away from her, when she wakes up she will not want to be near you. I have a job for you and Lux.” She told the two before turning back to the new girl. Then she looked upon her little group and did not see her favorite. “Where is Willo?” She asked with a small frown.

TRACY FORD

Tracy looked back at Willo. She was surprised a bit by that question. That creature really behaved just like a little child. Girl sighed and answered: "I guess we can be friends, at least for the time I'm stuck in this strange place." She smiled to the light cloud. "But I'm from a place far away from here and at one moment, when I get a chance, I'll try to return to my place, to my home. And you will not be able to follow me" she explained. Seeing Willo's lights were changing again, like they did before, when the creature was mourning the spider, Tracy felt sorry for her words. "But I'm sure it will take a lot of time for me to leave this place" She said, though she was rather afraid of that "And I'm sure we will meet many times and have a lot of time to do the things together"

Tracy was looking at her new "friend"... well, the only friend she had here and noticed something that worried her. "Are... are you made of... fire?" She asked watching the burned grass where parts of his body or energy dropped. "I think we need to be careful with that" she showed Willo the traces he was leaving behind.

"I see you can control it" Girl appraised her new friend, not wanting to upset Willo more. It seemed that when the creature was calm, it didn't drop anything" But when you're upset, like right now you drop parts of your... energy. In those moments better fly over dry path and avoid flying above trees to avoid burning... you know, injuring them." She smiled again towards Willo, showing she believed in her new friend strength and abilities.

Suddenly something came into her mind. Why so late? "Hey, you can fly, right? Can you fly higher, like climb above trees and see if we are going deeper into the forest or are we on the right way out? Let's play you're scout in our team and you tell me where is something else, beside trees, like some buildings?"

Tracy was waiting for Willo's answer or actions. It might be a great fun for him. And a great help for her, for both of them. For their team. She smiled to the last word...

Willo the Wisp



"I guess we can be friends, at least for the time I'm stuck in this strange place."

"Yay! New friend!" Willo cheered, swirling around it's new friend. At the end of it's little parade around the human it popped up and let out a small burst of confetti like sparkles, each spark a different color of the rainbow and all of them neither hot nor cold.

"But I'm from a place far away from here and at one moment, when I get a chance, I'll try to return to my place, to my home. And you will not be able to follow me"

"Aw. Why not?" It asked, confused as to why she believed it couldn't follow her. Does human friend live under water?
That would make sense if she went under water.
It assumed her meaning until she could answer otherwise.

"But I'm sure it will take a lot of time for me to leave this place and I'm sure we will meet many times and have a lot of time to do the things together" Willo went back from confused to cheery and happy. It let it's back end drift out into a fiery tail, a blazing rainbow colored trail following the body of the wisp. It harmlessly weaved between branches and wound around trees, the lines of psychedelic burning colors complimenting the eccentric flora that surrounded them. Tree's with leaves and flowers of every color, branches and trunks of unusual shapes and sizes, Fungi which adhered to no real strict laws of physics. Some mushrooms had eyes that watched as Tracy and the wisp passed them by.


"Are... are you made of... fire?" Tracy asked it as it was in the middle of dancing through the forest. Looking to her with it's happy little smile it bobbed up and down to indicate a yes. "Yup! I'm a wisp! All wisps are made of fire!" It answered her rather simple question easily.

"I think we need to be careful with that. I see you can control it. But when you're upset, like right now you drop parts of your... energy. In those moments better fly over dry path and avoid flying above trees to avoid burning... you know, injuring them."

When she mentioned that it had been dropping parts it looked at her quizzically. "What parts? I don't think I dropped anything..." It looked around, trying to see what she meant by that. It knew the flame trails it was making were safe, as were the guiding torches. It spotted a certain blue fire burning back over at the hill with the tree. It was the hot kind of fire. "Oooooh! That fire! Whoopsies!" It realized it's mistake. "Be right back!" It assured her before gliding back over to the source of the hot fire.

As it drew close it could see that the flames didn't quite do too much damage to the area yet. The tree was fine but it was starting to spread through some of the grass towards the tree line by the foot of the hill. It was a simple enough problem for Willo to fix. The flames that were once raging and burning everything in their path lifted from the ground up into the air. Quite quickly the fire was reabsorbed back into Willo, simply disappearing into the blue ball of light.


When Willo returned to Tracy it was now a bit bigger and a bit brighter than it was before. The fire that it created contributed returned little but the flames that were produced as consequence added some girth to it's spherical frame. "There we go! No more burny fires!" It boasted proudly, happy to have righted it's wrong.

"Hey, you can fly, right? Can you fly higher, like climb above trees and see if we are going deeper into the forest or are we on the right way out? Let's play you're scout in our team and you tell me where is something else, beside trees, like some buildings?"

"Okay!" It didn't know what a scout was but she wanted to do fun things so her request didn't seem even the slightest bit questionable. With a whoosh it soared straight up at a terrific speed. From above the forest it's blue light could be seen all across the forest nearby like a signal flare. It looked down then looked around and saw the general layout of the land from a bird's eye view.

Not a moment too long and down the wisp came, now hovering at shoulder height with it's new friend. "I saw a building and then I saw another building further away that was on fire and had humans around it. To get to them we gotta go back the way we came and then a little further. Wanna go? Which do we go to? What do you wanna do? You're fun to do stuff with." It summarized what it saw about as accurately as it could. Though the people around the burning place were technically denizens of Wonderland they all looked an awful lot like it's new friend which was a human so by that connection so were they.

Tracy smiled as she watched Willo's quick, almost chaotic movements. She was watching with her mouth open how the fallen fire was absorbed by Willo. She was glad the wisp could undo the damages it had done.

When it returned from above the trees, they got really useful data. It was a bit disheartening they were waling the wrong way, but at least they could change into the right direction.

"I think we need to go to that burning building, where other people gathered." Tracy said wondering if Willo had the abilities to help with that fire as well. "Let's go, I'd like to meet those people you've just seen. Which way to the burning building?".

When the wisp had shown her direction, she started marching quickly. She felt rather guilty, but she was counting on being relieved from "babysitting" the wisp when they would be among others. Maybe there is someone who likes to play more? She felt really guilty with that thoughts and was marching quickly not showing anything to Willo. The wisp reminded her of her own little brother - was a bit annoying, like every little kid, but she had to admit the wisp had a pure, honest heart made of golden flames.

"Have you met other people here? Do you know anyone from the ones who were by that building on fire?" Tracy asked. She was marching quickly, the way she liked. She really enjoyed the fact that she knew the destination now and sh was sure they will get to the edge of the forest soon. Girl had already known the wisp was quick, much quicker a human could be and she was trying to be as fast as she could not wanting it to be bored with he march.

"Hey, Willo, can you do the scouting job again? Please check if we are closer to the building on fire." Girl asked the wisp. If it enjoyed flying fast and high, it was probably treating that as a sort of play. If it's way of thinking was the similar to her brother's, she had known for a long time that a biggest "threat" wisp was facing was a boredom...

When Willo returned there were some good news. They were really close. "Do you think you could help them with that fire, like you did it a moment ago with that fire on trees?"

She was listening to wisp's answers when they reached the edge of the forest. She looked around. The building on fire resembled some sort of palace, It was big and a beautiful, despite the damages.

Girl looked at the people standing there. Something changed inside her. She was no longer feeling like a brave adventurer. There was suddenly so many people around her, not just Willo... and they were not humans, they were locals, local creatures... They did look partially human, one girl was even looking like she was from a Tracy's world...

"Hi, I'm Tracy and that's Willo" She said bashfully, putting her hands to the front pockets of her jeans and watching the others. The wisp had flown towards the group...

Caitlyn lit up with excitement as she saw Willo coming towards the small group. It was strange for a woman of her age to be so fond of such a creature from Wonderland. It was natural that she loved everyone, but she loved Willo a bit more then the others. She wrapped her hands around Willo and smiled. “Where have you been?” She asked, forgetting about her burning castle for a moment, and the fact that the Red Queen was leaning into black magic to get herself killed.

She realized how much passion she was showing Willo and rubbed her cheek against Willo before looking at the others, she noticed Katarina was still on the snowy grounds of the snowy mountain and that everyone was sort of standing there with nothing to do. “Jaxon, I feel as if you and Katarina share a special bond, would you please take her somewhere safe where she can rest and stay with her? I will send someone to get the two of you when you both are needed.” She smiled polity at him before turning to the stranger that came along with Willo. “Hello dear, I am the Ice Queen. You can call me Caitlyn if you prefer to not be formal.” She bowed to the girl, with Willo still in her palms. “I see you are also an outsider. For your own protection I feel you should stay with me. This young girl here is also new. You both have come to Wonderland in a very bad time.” She gestured to the small blonde girl.

Next she turned to Adrian and Lux. “I need to create a new body guard from my own blood, possibly two or three. I need you both to gather some supplies for me. I will need two dozen pink ice flowers, you can find it at the edge of the cliffs here. Six dragon fangs, and twelve golden eyes. I know it's a tricky combination, however I wouldn't ask you if I knew you could not manage to get your hands on it.”

She looked at Tom next. “I will need your help on figuring out who still has their loyalty to me. I will give you a magic ability to be able to see into a person's soul and figure that out for yourself. However you will need to figure out what the soul of a person who wants to kill me looks like and someone who I can trust looks like. If magic was as simple as I make it look, we would all be dead by now.” She smiled, loving how blunt she made that sound.

Lastly she turned back to the wisp in her hands. “And you, my love.. Can you find Pippa? I would appreciate it if you both would stay somewhere safe from the Red queen.”

Tracy Ford


Tracy's eyes turned big as saucers when the woman dressed in a sparkling dress was playing with the wisp. Her mouth went open as the woman introduced herself. As she'd never met a real queen before. Girl was not fully knowing what she was supposed to do after the queen's words, but she remembered herself a news she had heard just after princess' Kate Wedding that women were required to curtsy in front of the queen. Supposing Wonder-land had the same customs as Eng-land, Tracy moved her hands to the sides and then bent her knees for a second, attempting to curtsy. "I'm honored, your highness". girl said just after the queen gave her orders to the others.

A merry chuckles given by almost everyone standing there made girl's cheeks blushing. She was probably making it wrong... "I...I'm sorry, but I guess I need some practice" Tracy explained and smiled. "...and if somebody could help me, I'd take as many curtsying lessons as needed". People stopped laughing. That gave her enough time to think of her next step. "Excuse me" She said to the queen, mocking a curtsy again and walked to the girl who looked most "normal" among the others.

"I guess you are from >Kansas< as well." She said to the girl, smiling and blinking her eye. "I'm sorry, I know it's from >Wizard of Oz< but I just couldn't stop myself from saying that." Tracy was still smiling as she stood herself by the girl, but lowered her voice. "It's creepy, but I think this really is a Wonderland. Everything looks just like the movie, I even saw a >drink me< bottle... I'm glad I managed without drinking it." She was talking, watching as one of the people turned into a rabbit and run... Tracy could not believe her eyes, again in that strange place... 'Oh, there she is...' came through her mind.
