Ricki insisted I stay the night. Her best friend was in serious trouble! Me, being the wonderful doctor I was, could keep an eye on her throughout the night. Just in case she tried something, again. I laughed. She hadn't even needed proof! The moment the words left my mouth she had believed them! It didn't matter what Sarah said, it just made her sound crazy! i was winning.
She would be mine...
My footsteps echoed through the small apartment as I left the kitchen opening the door to Sarah's room. Ricki was asleep, a half eaten cupcake on her desk. Sarah, however, sat with her legs drawn under her chin. Her pale skin glowed in the faint light her eyes shimmering as she looked at me.
"What do you want?"she whispered, venom in her voice. It sent shivers down my spine. I stood beside her chuckling as she edged further away.
"Sarah..." I reached for her running a gloved hand down her arm.
"Don't touch me!"
"I believe you enjoy it when I touch you, Sarah my sweet." I leant over her my face inches from hers. I heard her knuckles crack in warning and smirked.
"Is violence the only answer you can think of, love?"
"You want to know want I'm thinking of?" she spat. I wrapped a strand of her hair around my finger.
"I'm imagining slamming your head into the balcony door, kicking you between your legs and throwing you over the edge...all before Ricki wakes up."
"Is that so? And what would you tell her when she woke up?"
"Oh Sarah. Though I do so love the idea of you between my legs, I don't think that is the right answer. My sweet, you're in a very disastrious predicament. One wrong move and I can convince dear Ricki to ship you off to an asylum."
Her eyes widened.
"Not if you co-operate. You see, Sarah. I have her in the palm of my hand. Your weak little friend will do anything I say. And, right now, she believes I am the only one that can help you solve your little problem."
"Was this your plan? Convince my friend I'm crazy just to have some sort of leverage? Join me in the underground or I'll have you sent to an asylum? Well guess what, Jareth, I choose the fucking asylum!"
I'd never heard her curse. Her anger bubbled in every word she spoke. She was furious. I loved it.
"Now, now, Sarah." I pounced on her, pinning her arms down before she could strike me.
"Watch that tongue of yours. It's not polite to swear."
Her eyes burned into mine.
"You want me to be polite?" she screamed. "You're ruining my life! You're using my friend to manipulate me and your drugging her into doing everything you say! She's so full of peaches right now that she won't WAKE UP!"
Ricki turned over, remaining in a peaceful sleep. Emphasising Sarah's point. I shrugged.
"Annoying, is it not? Having someone walk into your life when you do not expect it? Having someone turn all of your people against you?" My anger began to grow. "Frustrating isn't it? When they beat you at every turn! Using your own things against you until you have nothing left!"
My face was so close to hers that our noses brushed her breath warm on my skin as she took in everything I said.
"Tell me, Sarah, what does it feel like when your world crashed down around you? Does it hurt? Does it tear at your mind and body? Making you feel useless? Pathetic? Weak!"
Her face lit up with understanding and, for just a moment, she was frightened.
"You...You're making me feel how you did when I won? This is all just about revenge?"
He stood up, his body shaking with suppresed fury.
"Oh no, Sarah. This isn't just about revenge. This is about claiming what's mine! I have waited for four years! You were mine the moment you entered my labyrinth and you still are."
He fell to his knees, grabbing my hand, with an almost pleading stare.
"You were just a girl. Too innocent to understand." A deep growl escaped his chest. "But you are meant to be my queen. The underground needs you, Sarah."
His lowered his voice to a whisper.
"I need you. You can almost understand that, now."
He was back to his feet before I could reply, pacing the room with clenched fists.
"But you will not understand, completely, until you have lost everything! Just as I lost everything!"He sighed, his shoulders hunching over slightly.
"This power you hold over me... will not last for much longer."
My heart skipped a beat.
"And then, what? When this power is gone what do you plan to do to me! It's not like you can do much more!"
"Sarah, you understimate me. Once again. There is so much more I can Do. To. You. And I will..."
"what is that supposed to mean! What are you going to do Jareth?"
"You'l l just have to find out..."
He left me alone, closing the door as I released a furious scream.
... If he said that one more time I was going to kick his ass!
