Wonderland No More: The Teacup Conspiracy
All the king's horses and all the king's men were too late.
Humpty Dumpty is, or rather was a rather large egg. He often dressed in very fine clothing, showing off gifts he’d received from the White King and Queen. He was possessed of a smile so wide only one other in Wonderland could rival it…
Humpty Dumpty was once one of the highest ranking and respected citizens of the Looking-Glass Lands.. Often he would be visited by individuals seeking his wisdom, and he kept company with kings, and received gifts from royalty.
Unfortunately, he had an accident.
Not long ago, as one reckons time in Wonderland, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. He was found at the base of the wall he habitually sat upon, shattered, his yolk seeping into the grass.
The Red King sent all of his horses and men, but, well, what were they to do?
Unable to do much for the unfortunate egg but clean up the mess, the whole affair might have been forgotten except for the troubling rumors about what really happened that afternoon.
But those are all nonsense.
