Alice and Dodo

Alice: Are you sure you want to do this?
Dodo: Hmm…I think so. Hey, am I the king?
Alice: Yes.
Dodo: So I can do whatever I want?
Alice: You can do whatever you want.
Dodo: Right! I will do it.
Alice: Are you really sure about it?
Dodo: I think so. I’m the king, right?
Alice: You are the king, yes.
Dodo: So I can do whatever I want.
Alice: Yes, you can.
Dodo: Then I will do it.
Alice: I’m not doubting you. But you really want to do it, don’t you?
Dodo: On second thought……I…think so. Since I am the king, I can do whatever I want to.
Alice: Absolutely.
Dodo: I will do it.
Alice: OK! You do it.
Dodo: You mean you agree that I should do it?
Alice: Yes. Why?
Dodo: Aren’t you going to ask me if I am sure about this?
Alice: I have.
Dodo: Really?
Alice: Yes. Come on, do it!
Dodo: Wait a minute. Is there something fishy here?
Alice: No. Why?
Dodo: Are you hiding something from me?
Alice: No!
Dodo: Hey, I’m not stupid you know!
Alice: I know.
Dodo: Then, tell me.
Alice: Tell you what?
Dodo: I am the king! Tell me the truth!
Alice: What truth?
Dodo: Don’t give me this straight face!
Alice: I’m not.
Dodo: Then, tell me what I want to hear!
Alice: What do you want to hear?
Dodo: The truth!
Alice: I really don’t know what you are talking about!
Dodo: Come on, Alice. You know you can’t hide it from me.
Alice: I really have nothing to hide.
Dodo: Please, Alice. I beg you. Tell me about it.
Alice: Are you going to do it?
Dodo: What? Do what?
Alice: Never mind.
Dodo: What did you say again?
Alice: Now I know.
Dodo: I beg your pardon. What do you know?
Alice: I know what to do next.
Dodo: Oh, really? What is it?
Alice (pointing): Look over there! I think something is coming in from the waters!
Dodo (turning his head): What is it?

With one swing of the machete, Alice removed Dodo’s head from his body.

Alice: Oops! I’m sorry. Aren’t you the king, Your Majesty? Thought you really wanted to do it. But guess it was too much for you. Just have to bear the burden for you.

And that was the last Dodo to have existed on Earth. Bless his soul.

  1. You had me going. Great dialog!

  2. I’ll be frank, the dialog got a bit monotonous after a while, i mean it was just stuck at a place moving back and forth, not forward. The ending however took the cake 😀 Violence Works. And yeah, I’m not one to disagree with Mr Jason here, just my point of view 🙂

  3. thank you, Jason!

    and yes, N, violence does work sometimes. i appreciate your feedback!

  4. Chuckle, nice bit of wickedness, that, CS! 🙂

  5. Look I know the Dodo was dumb, but Alice was WICKED!

  6. I am so surprised! I didn’t know that conversation had ever found its way out of my mind… except I’m the queen and it’s not Alice, it’s self. I argue with my self all the time… almost a verbatim version of what I just read.
    And what you wrote.

    How’d you know that?

    *giggles*…

  7. Vanilla and Verilion, yes, Alice was innocently wicked. bet she didn’t mean to harm Dodo.

    S & V, well i didn’t expect myself to know so much! guess some of us do have similar train of thoughts. 🙂

  8. A good one, CS! Very clever! I liked it a lot.

  9. i’m glad you liked it a lot, Vesper! 🙂
