Alice’s Frog and Rabbit

Alice’s skirt swirled around her as she turned. She landed herself on the ground so that her skirts fanned out like a flower.

‘Alice, you know you can talk to me about anything?’, her mother said, perhaps not for the first time.

‘What are we doing tomorrow again?’

‘Why did you hide a frog in your room,’ said Alice’s mother.

‘It followed me.’

‘And the rabbit?’

‘Same.’

‘Alice, you cannot have vermin in your room. I won’t allow it.’

‘A frog isn’t vermin, they are only sometimes poisonous.’

‘Says who?’

‘Books.’

‘That does not make it any more acceptable to have them co-inhabiting in your bedroom.’

‘I will not get rid of them.’

‘You don’t need to.’

‘Really?’

‘Sure, Cook did.’

‘Oh.’
