Chasingwhite animals with timepiecesin this drug-trip landscapecan only lead to more of same.Hedgehogs, playing cards, paintbrushes:full of undisclosed danger.Didn't your mother tell you not to kiss strangers?That Cheshire smile shouldn't fool you.Pull your skirt down.Your nails are growing so fastyou're hardly human.Alice, fight your version of Bedlamas long as you can.Sleep the sweet dream awayfrom that gooey looking glass, or mushrooms,or the fear of your own body.Forget what the night tastes like.Stop wondering through the shadows,holding your neck out for the slice of the axe."

7. "Why, I . . . I still like you." Nerves fluttered in her chest, but she kept her tone light. "Do you like me?"A few moments passed in silence. She would have counted them in heartbeats, but her foolish heart had become a most unreliable timepiece. It gave three pounding beats in a flurry, then none at all.Just when she'd begun to despair, he turned his head, catching her in a passionate, openmouthed kiss. He put both arms around her, fisting his hands in the fabric of her dress, lifting her up and against his chest. So that her body recalled every inch of his, every second of their blissful lovemaking. The now-familiar ache returned—that sweet, hollow pang of desire that only deepened as his tongue flickered over hers. In a matter of seconds, he had her gasping. Needing. Damp.Then he set her back on her toes. Pressed his brow to hers and released a deep, resonant sigh. And just before turning to leave, he spoke a single word.He said, "No."
Author: Tessa Dare
8. "But Time, unfortunately, though it makes animals and vegetables bloom and fade with amazing punctuality, has no such simple effect upon the mind of man. The mind of man, moreover, works with equal strangeness upon the body of time. An hour, once it lodges in the queer element of the human spirit, may be stretched to fifty or a hundred times its clock length; on the other hand, an hour may be accurately represented on the timepiece of the mind by one second."
Author: Virginia Woolf
