Alice crept down stairs. She looked at the enormous clock on the wall.
"4:00am...maybe a bit early," she thought .
But how could Alice contain her excitement? It was Easter morning after all.
Alice made her way to the dinning room. Every Easter morning for the past nine years,
Alice would awake to find a dinning room table laden with colourful chocolate gifts from the Easter Bunny.
She knew he was real because they met once on holiday in Florida.
He was big, yellow and for some reason, lived in a rather large shopping mall.
Alice turned on her flashlight and peeked around the dinning room door hoping to catch the Easter Bunny
laying the table with treats.
"That's odd," said Alice staring at an empty table. "He should of been here by now!"
Alice decided to give up and head back up stairs when she heard something strange emanating from
It was the sound of something in pain.
Alice swung the dinning room door open and flicked on the light swicth.
"What on earth are you doing on the floor Nero?" asked a slightly confused Alice.
Nero, the troll, was supposed to be asleep with the other creatures upstairs.
"Ohhhh!" shouted Nero clucthing his belly.
Alice noticed his belly was slightly bigger than normal.
"You ate all the chocolate?" asked Alice.
Nero shook his head and pointed to a big colourful sack in the corner of the room.
Alice peeked inside to discover it filled with about every type of chocolate known to humankind.
"Well if you didn't eat this..." then it dawned on Alice.
"Oh no!" cried Alice. "You didn't...did you?"
Nero nodded...he had eaten the Easter Bunny.
"How could you!"shouted Alice. "Remember how bad it was having to explain to the police where all of
Mrs.Jenkins cats went! This is a zillion times worse!"
"Are you ok Mr.Easter Bunny sir?" Alice said with her face near Nero's belly.
But there was no response.
Alice feared the worse.
"Help!" said a muffled voice from Nero's belly.
"He's alive!" cried Alice.
All the commotion had woken up Abner, Miguel and Gretchen.
"What's wrong?" grunted Abner.
"Nero ate the Easter Bunny!" replied Alice.
"That's terrible!" exclaimed Miguel.
"And what about the chocolate?" asked Gretchen.
"Luckily no...it's in the sack in the corner," replied Alice.
"Excellent...I'm starving!" said Gretchen.
"No time for food now!" cried Alice.
"He's still alive!"
"Nero, you really must learn to chew your food," grunted Abner.
"We must send for the Doctor!" said Miguel.
"I'll run upstairs and get him," replied Alice.
"Where is the patient Ms.Kinderfoot?"asked the doctor.
Alice pointed to Nero,who was still sprawled out on the floor.
"Hello Mr.Bunny, my name is Doctor Minotaur Cordova."
"Are you sure this is a bunny Ms.Kinderfoot?"
"This is not a laughing matter doc!" said Alice.
"Yes...of course," replied Doctor Cordova.
He examined Nero's belly.
"Yes,yes...this is the worst case of indegestion I've ever seen."
"Can you get him out doc?" asked Alice.
"Two hours Ms.Kinderfoot and your Easter creature will be regurgitated in one piece...mostly," replied Dr.Cordova.
"What's wrong Alice?"asked Miguel.
"That's good news...right?"
"Wrong Miguel," said Alice.
"There's going to be children who will miss out on chocolate this Easter!
I mean he's got to deliver treats to the rest of this country...probably the rest of western Europe and the Americas! It's a disaster!"
"Then we must help the Easter thingy out!" said Gretchen.
"We'll eat up all the chocolate and it won't go to waste!"
"That's it Gretchen! Genius!" cried Alice.
"Really?" said a surprised Gretchen.
"Yes...well except eating all the chocolate part," replied Alice.
"We'll deliver the chocolate!"
Nero's belly started to jiggle as the Easter Bunny tried to speak.
"What's the Easter critter saying doc?" grunted Abner.
"Something about a book and a sack...I believe," replied Dr.Cordova.
Alice pulled out a big yellow book from the sack.
"It's his address book," said Alice.
"This means we can deliver the chocolate!"
"Let's do this!" cried Miguel.
"Well...we may need to fix one thing first" said Alice.
"I don't know about you two...but I feel like pink fluffy vomit," Gretchen grunted.
"What are you on about Gretchen, you three look great!" said Alice.
"Now....anyone know how this thing works?"
