"That nigh Alice dreamed that she met a real unicorn. She was sitting in a meadow, or perhaps it was a tapestry, for there were so many flowers and little rabbits all around. And the unicorn rested its head in her lap. But then Miss PRickett came - and Alice woke up. (...)"
`What -- is -- this?' he said at last.
`This is a child!' Haigha replied eagerly, coming in front of Alice to introduce her, and spreading out both his hands towards her in an Anglo-Saxon attitude. `We only found it to-day. It's as large as life, and twice as natural!'
`I always thought they were fabulous monsters!' said the Unicorn. `Is at alive?'
`It can talk,' said Haigha, solemnly.
The Unicorn looked dreamily at Alice, and said `Talk, child.'
Alice could not help her lips curing up into a smile as she began: `Do you know, I always thought Unicorns were fabulous monsters, too! I never saw one alive before!'
`Well, now that we HAVE seen each other,' said the Unicorn, `if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you. Is that a bargain?'
`Yes, if you like,' said Alice.
