“Painting the Roses Red” by Morena Tan

The Story

Going along with the Alice in Wonderland theme in “Through the Looking Glass,” one might say this piece recalls Alice’s encounter with Two, Five, and Seven on the Queen of Hearts’ Croquet Grounds: 

‘Would you tell me,’ said Alice, a little timidly, ‘why you are painting those roses?’

Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two. Two began in a low voice, ‘Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a red rose-tree, and we put a white one in by mistake; and if the Queen was to find it out, we should all have our heads cut off, you know.’
