QLeft.png Bored out of her mind, Alice chases a rabbit carrying a pocket watch and falls head first into a hole. She's unable to hide her excitement in the curious Wonderland. QRight.png


Alice in Shoppingland

Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Alice, Alice, where is Alice ♪


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Aruru-chan, I found directions. The Alice in Wonderland exhibition is on the third floor.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Then this escalator goes straight to Wonderland?! Is that what you're saying?!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Yep. It sure was good timing for an exhibition like this.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
We're so lucky!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Yes, it was a really fortunate coincidence.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I see it... WOW!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
The walls are covered in illustrations from the book! I've never seen Mr. John's pictures this big before!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Mr. John?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
The illustrator of the original book! John Tennie!!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Just calling him "John" seems rude, and we're not friends so it's uncomfortable to call him "Johnny".


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
So I call him "Mr. John"!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Heh heh, that makes sense. I'm surprised you know the illustrator's name off the top of your head.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
You must be very familiar with it, Aruru-chan. Does the book have some special significance for you?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Yeah! Alice is a really special--


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whoa! Look, Shizuha-chan!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
"Alice in Wonderland Fair"? They're selling all sorts of merchandise alongside the exhibition.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Oooh! They have a fluffy White Rabbit plushie!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Heh, seems like Alice has fallen down the rabbit hole.



Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Is there anything you want here, Aruru-chan?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I want everything! But especially this Alice tea set!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
And the Hatter's cup, and this great-smelling tea! If only there were cookies...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
And there we are! Cookie cutters! That's everything for the perfect teatime!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Are you going to make cookies for everyone? I'm looking forward to it.


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(Come to think of it, Misora-chan's face was a bit green before...)


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(She said to be careful of Aruru's cookies, if I'm not mistaken.)


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(Misora-chan will eat anything, so if even she reacts like that, it must be something else...)


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Teatime ♪ Teatime ♪


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(...I'm not about to stop Aruru-chan when she's looking so happy about it.)


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(No matter how the cookies taste, I'll be sure to eat every last--)


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
...Shizuha-chan?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Yes? What is it?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Which do you think is better? The card cookie cutter or the hat cookie cutter?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Hmm... They both look like they could be fun to me. Why don't we take a look at the exhibition first?


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
We'll only have to carry it around if you buy it now. Taking a look at all the pictures may help you decide what you want.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Nice one, Shizuha-chan!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
All right, then we're off again! Heh heh, I'm so excited to see the exhibition, and then we're teatime!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
(I feel a little uneasy...but I'm sure it'll be fine.)

Alice's Teatime

Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
............


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
What's wrong, Tsukasa-chan? We're about to start our teatime...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Smile, smile ♪


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Oh, right... Yeah, smile...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
What's with that reaction?!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Tsukasa, which teacup do you want? The cookies Aruru-chan made with her cookie cutter will be done soon.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Y-Yes, thank you.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(Aruru loves making sweets...)


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(She puts in anything she can find that people like, so they always turn out disgusting.)


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(I've only eaten them once, but it was enough to turn me off for life...)


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Heh heh, I really outdid myself with these!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Misora and Lalafin couldn't join us, so be sure to eat enough for them!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
....Misora and Lalafin couldn't make it?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Nope. Misora got called in to work suddenly, and Lalafin went to help her!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
She's gotta take 20 dogs for a walk... That's too much for one person, even Misora!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I thought about rescheduling the tea party to help too, but they said they'll come next time.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(Ugh, those two lucked out...)


:
Ding♪


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
The cookies are done! I'll go get them!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Shouldn't you let them cool first?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Nah, it's fine! They'll be better scalding hot! Let me pour your tea...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
In place of Lalafin the Hatter, ahem! "The fluttering bat shines bright on my plate..."


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
"Our curious tea party is a full house today!"


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
"But there are so many open seats..."


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Ahaha! That's Alice's line!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Ahaha...ha...


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(Maybe I should pretend I just got plans so I can leave. But...)


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
"The Hatter's teatime ♪ A most curious teatime ♪"


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
(No, I couldn't leave Aruru like this!)


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
ALLLLLL RIIIIIIGHT, let's eat this already!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whoa, that's some serious vigor!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Being a Stage Girl's all about guts! Ouch, it's hot...!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
...How is it, Tsukasa?


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
It's... It's good?! Wow, it's crispy on the outside, but firm!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Oh, good! I helped her with the cookies.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
*chomp* ... *munch* So good!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I know how much you love it so I wanted to put in some pickled squid, or bite-sized cutlets, or other snacks...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
But Shizuha-chan said I should try just following the recipe.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
She said if I try something different from usual, it would make a really curious teatime!


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Nice, Shizuha!


Shizuha (icon).png Shizuha:
Heh heh, it looks like it worked.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Aruru, next time you make snacks, try to make it as "curious" as you made these.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Aww, but then it won't be curious at all.


Tsukasa (icon).png Tsukasa:
Just do it!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whaaaaaat?!

Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I'm trying to picture what Wonderland might be like! Fluffy dogs, and chatty rain! It's fun thinking of what there might be ♪

Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Shizuha-chan and Tsukasa-chan are going to come for a tea party! That's why I'm making these cookies with these cute cookie cutters!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
You want to help?! I'm glad, but aren't you busy...?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
You want to help before the audition? Thanks! All right, that just fires me up even more!
