The Wonderland Queen
The Red Queen sat in her Bubble of Boredom
She contemplated a life beyond croquet.. ‘What if this were not real?’, ‘what if I just took a pill and ended up somewhere else?’
Before you go any deeper you need to remember the warning that Morpheus gave to Neo..
“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill — the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
You take the red pill — you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
The Queen lay around bored inside her own bubble of selfness, bored and watching the cards play croquet. First she would sit this way, then she would sit that way, whatever way she sat, was not the ‘right’ way. She wasn’t focussed on the croquet game and the cards were doing their own thing.
Because it was such a mess and they were all unsure of what the Queen wanted, “the players all played at once without waiting for turns, quarrelling all the while, and fighting for the hedgehogs; and in a very short time the Queen was in a furious passion, and went stamping about, and shouting ‘Off with his head!’ or ‘Off with her head!’ about once in a minute.
With the Queen sitting on her throne, whatever next will happen?
You have to wait until the garden opens to find out. Be careful where you tread, you may burst the Queen’s bubble and it will be your head that will be ‘off’.
