A new challenge from the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. This week we have to include “‘What was the rabbit late for?’ wondered Alice.’ But there’s a twist.

Suddenly, a small, white rabbit scuttled across the lawn as if being pursued by a wild beast. She pondered this fact, curious to know why there was a white rabbit in her garden. Surely wild rabbits weren’t white?
Her mind rolled back to sitting on her mother’s knee, reading her favourite book ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Her memories flooded back.
‘What was the rabbit late for,’ wondered Alice and asked her mother out loud.
‘I can’t tell you. It was a secret, just between us. We promised to tell no-one.
