|this is the prompt|
Isabella held the worn hardback, keeping with the ruse that she was reading. She was distracted, and after she had reread the same sentence over into oblivion. She had given up, her nerves were shot. The jostling of the tracks did nothing to sooth her.
"What'ch you figure?" asked the heavily accented voice beside her.
She glanced over spitefully at Charlie, His outrageous hat and mismatched finery didn't capture her attention like it had when they were young. His mopish yet styled hair, fell over his icy eyes.
"I don't know," Isabella replied honestly. She looked over the other occupants of the train, they were quite a few Princesses with Cinderella being the favorite, at least five Red Hoods who were chatting amiably with the wolves. She saw a couple Hatter's but they paled compared to Charlie's authenticity. Even now they were sending sharp looks their way.
"They haven't got a chance," She said quietly more to herself than him.
"You think." He said eagerly, a small hopeful smile quirking his lips.
"Of course stupid, you come from five generations of Hatters." She rolled her eyes and returned her attention to her book.
She was worried however not for Charlie but herself, everyone here seemed to already know what role they would play. She was the only one who seemed lost.
" I could say the same for you." Charlie said without moving his face in her direction.
They were sitting next each other on this train still pretending to be strangers. Simply because no one was supposed to know each other at Tale's End.
"That doesn't even make sense, I don't have a category I will be lucky to score a side character." She tried to pretend as if it didn't bother her.
"Yes, you do," Charlie glanced over and winked, "Your brilliant you are."
