The detective escorted the parents through the mortuary. “I’m so very sorry for this. I have to warn you, this will be a rather large shock. You need to prepare yourselves.”

He led them to one of the metal drawers and pulled it open, revealing a small body wrapped in white material. “Are you ready?” he asked. Slowly and reluctantly, they nodded. When he pulled aside the sheet, the woman fell down to her knees, crying and retching. The husband lowered himself to her level and buried her face into his chest, squeezing his eyes shut in a failed attempt to remain stoic and calm for his wife. He opened his mouth to speak, but no words came out. He cleared his throat and quietly choked out a few barely audible words. “That’s… that’s her. That’s our girl”.

On the table lay a small child, around the age of 8. Her face, arms, and shoulders were half eaten, with tiny rodent bite marks scattered across her skin. Stiff white hairs littered her torn dress and matted blonde curls. On the half of her face that remained intact was a joyful, delighted smile, frozen for the rest of time.

“H-how?” gasped the man. His wife continued to bawl into his shirt, soaking it with her tears.

The detective hesitated. “We… we pulled her out of a sewage pipe. One arm was pinned to her side, the other outstretched. And her face and shoulders… Well, you can see.”

The man stared blankly at the detective, who slowly continued.
“We’re not sure what animal was responsible for this, but forensics said it might have been rabbits. We’re not sure why rabbits would act this way. Especially while the girl was still al-” He stopped himself from continuing.

“Why did we name her Alice,” the mother sobbed hysterically into her husband’s shoulder. “We could have named her anything else, anything in the world”. As the man began to sob as well, he placed a hand on his wife’s head. In his other hand, he held a tightly crumpled note with an untidy, childlike scrawl that read:

“I’m going to find my rabbit hole.
I know you’ll miss me, and I’m sorry.
But don’t be sad…

I’m in Wonderland.”

    Personally, I think it was weakly performed and could have been improved.

  • Commented on January 24, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    Personally I liked it, and thought it was clever.

  • Commented on January 25, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    The ideea is good, I guess, but it didn’t creep me out. Short pastas have to be more shocking or mess with your mind to get a good reaction.

  • Commented on February 26, 2015 at 5:26 pm

    I really liked this, it made sense and was pretty good.

  • Commented on April 14, 2015 at 10:50 pm

    i found it more morbidly cute than creepy.

  • Commented on April 27, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    I agree it could have been longer, built up the tension a bit more, but the concept is just stellar.

    I. Love. This.
    I mean, I love anything that has “Alice” and “Wonderland” in it XD
    But I really like this creepypasta 😀

  • Commented on July 9, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    I loved it! Alice in Wonderland finally shows its true colors!

  • Commented on July 10, 2015 at 7:18 am

    Good story. Being the mom of an imaginative child I found this intensely sad, especially because Alice In Wonderland is my favorite book.

  • Commented on July 16, 2015 at 3:27 am

    I absolutely love this! I don’t mind that it was short, and I don’t mind that it wasn’t horrifying or morbidly scary. It was awesome!

  • Commented on July 24, 2015 at 5:54 am

    Awesome concept. It’s great to see some really original original pasta! Keep up the good work.

  • Commented on August 4, 2015 at 4:40 am

    that was creepy yet cute. liked it

  • Commented on September 4, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    I honestly really liked it! It could have been a little more shocking/creepy though.

  • Commented on September 27, 2015 at 8:01 am

    It did not creep me out so much, but interesting anyway. Needs a little more.

    hmm interesting i like the end i must say though there was too much build up for such a little ending but what do you expect

  • Commented on October 17, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    Great Pasta! This is the second story of yours I’ve seen and it was great!

    Nice one! I loved the fact it was based on Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland. A small bit of it was confusing though. When the detective says “Especially while the girl was still al-” does that mean she is still alive and can be helped? (Not that that will happen, knowing the damage.) Try to explain that a little more. Overall awesome pasta! 10/10

    I agree with UltimatePasta.

    Was REALLY creeped out… Think about this pasta in quiet moments… Really clever.

  • Commented on February 21, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    That was pretty good!!! 5/5

    This was Beautiful Not as scary as it was sad.

  • Commented on January 8, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    I liked it a lot! I have written lots of poems using alice in wonderland as the theme myself, but i liked this story the best i think. If anything it made me truly sad. because she knew she was going to die and she was okay with that at such a young age, and to be exposed to that at that age, it makes me sad. But overall i loved it. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  • Commented on January 8, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    Eminems is stupid

  • Commented on January 27, 2017 at 1:47 pm

    Why did I think this was hilarious?

  • Commented on February 19, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    This is the reason why I like tiny or short creepy pastas. They kinda just smack you with everything at once and when you’re done, you’re yearning for more. But then again, it’s creepy pasta, so they’re won’t be a part 2 . . . unless the author sees this comment. Make more stories like this!

  • Commented on February 19, 2017 at 4:22 pm

    Just a few pet peeves from a mortuary science student:
    -bodies are stored and identified in a morgue, not a mortuary
    -a coroner identifies the bodies, not a detective, though I suppose a coroner could also be a detective
    -families are seldom allowed into morgues and embalming rooms, unless they happen to be job shadowing or simply work there

  • Commented on October 25, 2017 at 10:39 pm

  • Commented on January 13, 2018 at 1:01 am

    this was very well written, however i do suggest that you add a little more of a twist. the name was a wonderful idea but you could go into more detail of how she died and add just a tad more gore. it was a beautifully written story though.
