Alice Part 2

Teksty udostępnione dzięki

The Rabbit came up to the door and tried to open it, but couldn’t, because Alice’s elbow was pressed against it. Alice heard it run back outside.
Then she heard the Rabbit’s angry voice: “Bill! Bill! Where are you?” And then a voice she had never heard before, “Right here, sir, digging in the garden.”
“Digging in the garden!” said the Rabbit angrily. “Come and help me!”
“Yes, sir.”
“Tell me, Bill, what’s that in the window?”
“It’s an eye, sir, looking out at us!”
“An eye! Whoever saw one that size? It fills the whole window!”
“Sure it does, sir, but it’s an eye after all!”
“Well, it shouldn’t be there! Go and take it away!”
There was a long silence after this, and Alice could only hear whispers now and then, such as, “I don’t like it, sir, at all, at all!” and “Do as I tell you, you coward!”
After a little while, Alice heard the noise of many feet and a lot of voices talking together: “What’s happening?” – “What’s the trouble?” – “There’s a monster in the house!” – “What’s going to be done?” – “The Master has told Bill to go down the chimney!” – “Come on, Bill, you can do it!” – “Don’t be afraid now, dear Bill!” And there was the sound of a ladder against the outside wall.
“Oh! So Bill’s going to come down the chimney, is he?” said Alice to herself. “Poor Bill! This fireplace is narrow, but I think I can kick a little!”
She pulled her foot as far down the chimney as she could, and waited till she heard a little animal (she couldn’t guess what kind it was) scratching inside the chimney close above her. Then, saying to herself, “This is Bill,” she kicked once, and waited to see what would happen next.
The first thing she heard was a lot of voices: “There goes Bill!” Then the Rabbit’s voice alone: “Catch him!” Then silence, and then more voices: “Hold up his head – Give him something to drink – Don’t choke him – How was it? What happened to you? Tell us all about it!”
Then came a little, squeaking voice. (“That’s Bill,” thought Alice.) “Well, I hardly know, and I’m too upset to tell you. All I know is that something kicked me really hard, and up I went like a rocket!”
“So you did, poor fellow!” said the others.
After this there wasn’t any talking, and Alice could hear them begin to move again, and she heard the Rabbit say, “A small pile will be enough, to begin with.”
“A pile of what?” thought Alice; but she didn’t have to wonder long, for the next moment a shower of little stones came in through the window, and some of them hit her in the face. “I’ll stop this,” she said to herself, and shouted out, “Don’t do that again!” which produced more silence.
