That Pocket Watch

Alice watched as the white rabbit bounced through the garden, pausing in the grass. He looked at the watch in his paw.

“Oh, my!” he exclaimed, “I’m late for a very important date!”

Tucking the watch back where he had it, the rabbit hopped twice more before a pistol shot rang out. Alice ducked and when she lifted her head, the rabbit lay still on the ground.

“Good shot, Watson!” shouted the taller man.

“Why would you shoot such an innocent white rabbit?” Alice cried.

“Innocent?” replied the shorter man, “Why dear girl, that rabbit stole Mr. Holmes’ pocket watch!”
