Well, I don't know if anyone has reviewed for Part 2 just yet, but for anyone who does, Thank you. Now let me explain. Like many other writers I have decided that Fae have normally at the most only one child. Well Sarah is able to have more than one because of the time she spent Aboveground. Any way. The baby is born.
Now the baby will be in the sequel. I hope you all figured out who the Raven. This little three shot comes before and after The Princess and The Raven.
So I hope you enjoy.
One year later…
Kalida sat with her Grandma Linda and her Uncle Toby. Far away she could hear screams. Linda watched as the children played chess. Kalida was very good for one so young, but of course had learned to play from her father, while Toby had learned to play from his sister.
Jareth held onto Sarah's hand as the contraction hit her. She smiled weakly at him.
"Don't worry. I'll be fine."
Tatiana stood beside the closed door.
"Men, worry. Sarah, no matter what."
Sarah nodded to the High Queen. "At least there I could do this without pain if I wanted to."
Tatiana smiled. "Sarah, who told you that there isn't a way to lessen the pain?"
Sarah glared at her husband. "You mean to tell me there is something we can do so that it doesn't hurt as much?"
"I figured he told you. It shouldn't take me long to do it."
Tatiana walked to the bed and placed her hands on her daughter's belly. Sarah sighed as she only felt her muscles move but didn't feel the pain or discomfort.
"Now that is better."
Kalida sat looking out over the Labyrinth from her balcony. The moon was setting. Almost everyone was asleep except for the people coming and going from her parents' room. No one noticed her. She hid herself well.
Night seemed to be her time. Everything looked more beautiful in the moonlight to her. The slivery light made it seem more alive than the bright blaring light of the sun. Something called to her. She might be young, but Kalida felt something in the night.
Jareth closed the door behind him. A son. Sarah had given him something wonderful, but he would never compare to his sister. Now he had to get Kalida and bring her to see her little brother. Quickly he made his way towards his daughter's room.
He opened the door and noticed that her bed was empty. Quietly he made his way to her balcony. Smiling he leaned against the door.
"Sweetie, you should be in bed."
Kalida turned to face him. "I couldn't sleep. Sorry, Daddy."
"You have a little brother."
"Can I see him?"
"Yes. That's why I'm here."
Jareth picked her up from the wall and carried her to his and Sarah's chambers.
Kalida looked at the little thing her mommy held. Her daddy sat her down beside her mommy. Her mommy smiled at her.
"Kali, come here."
Kalida moved closer to her mommy.
"This is your little brother, Derek."
Kalida looked at the little baby in her mommy's arms.
"He'll get bigger, baby. But right now he's tiny. You were this tiny once."
"Ask Uncle Toby. He'll tell you."
Jareth smiled. "I think someone is sleepy."
Kalida snuggled into her mother's side. "No I'm not."
Gently Jareth took his son from his wife and placed the infant into a crib. He turned and smiled at his daughter who was now sound asleep.
Sarah yawned. "I think she has the right idea."
Jareth walked to the side of the bed and climbed in beside his wife.
"Sarah, you have given more than I had ever thought you would."
"Well children are a blessing."
"That isn't all. You give me so much joy and make me happy." Jareth kissed her cheek. "But you are right. We all need our rest. Especially you."
Sarah smiled and wrapped an arm around her husband.
"I love you."
"I love you, too, Sarah."
The Royal Family of the Goblin Kingdom slept in the bedchamber of the King and Queen. While outside in the kingdoms of the King and Queen, everyone celebrated the birth of a prince.
Well there it is. I know that I will have the one shot where Kali and the Raven are the main characters.
So tell me how you like this. Review. Until next time my readers.
