Alice felt a wet nose similar to her cat, Dinah. Although this was different it was a bit larger and there were 3 or 4 of them prodding her from different directions.
Alice could not get yet open her eyes as she felt quite groggy.
When last we saw her she was caught by a tractor beam on her way up into an alien spacecraft.
The prodding and the howling stopped and instead Alice listened to the strange conversation about her.
Is it her? -Sharina
A bit worse for wear, but I think so. -Sophie
How do you think she came to be here? -Laila
Sharina shrugged. We parted ways from her months ago in Wereland.
Yes, she could not have gotten this far into WhoLand so fast even if she herself was a were creature. -Sheila
Perhaps, she was magicked? -Sophie
In any case, I think this is a sign. Apparently she is to accompany us during our journey into this land. Are we in agreement to take her along if she so chooses? -Sheila
At this point of the story, our heroine, Alice, reanimates (like a zombie) with a flutter of her eyelids and a wiggle of her toes she enters the conversation.
Alice! Wha??? -all around
She speaks -Sharina
You're awake! -Laila
You've been dead to the world since we've come across you this day! -Sophie
What brings you to WhoLand? -Cinder
Well, I don't quite know. I don't remember anything except for a green light and rising up over the clouds.
And, now, I'm here. -Alice
Are you injured? -Sheila
How do you feel? -Cinder
Feel? a bit woozy.
