The rabbit-hole went  like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to stopping herself before she found herselfdown a very deep well. Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down in the look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything; then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were thinking filled with cupboards and book shelves; here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs. She took down a about jar from one of the shelves as she passed; it was labelled “ORANGE MARMALADE”, but to her greatit was empty: she did not like and to drop the jar for of killing somebody underneath,so managed to put it into one of the cupboards as she fell past it. “Well!” thought Alice to herself, “after such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they’ll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn’t say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house!” (Which was very likely true.) Down, down, down. Would the fall never comes to an end ? “I wonder how many miles I’ve fallen by this time?” she said aloud.thinkaboutdisappointmentfallingfearstraight onFiona Vodopivec,Gimnazija Slovenske Konjice34
