"Now are you sure you're okay with this? Because you're father and I could always go out another night..."
Sarah rolled her eyes.
"Ann, it's fine. You two should go and have fun."
Ann didn't look convinced.
"And you really don't have anything planned? Because you could just have forgotten, I do it all the time..."
"Will you crazy kids get going or do I have to kick you out?" Sarah asked playfully. "We'll be fine."
"If you're sure, we'll be back soon." Ann said, sighing as she pulled her coat on and stepped out of the door with Sarah's father.
Sarah waited until she heard the sound of the car before grinning at Toby, her baby brother.
"Come on then, let's get you to bed." She said, picking him up and walking upstairs.
Ann and her father were still getting used to the 'new' Sarah. After all, it was barely a month ago that she would have kicked up a fuss and sulked over having to look after Toby and now she was offering to do it before she was even asked.
The Labyrinth had changed her.
She lay Toby down in his cot, tucking the blankets around him as he started to doze. She bent down and kissed his forehead gently.
"Goodnight Toby." She whispered, switching the light off and leaving the room.
She went into her own bedroom and sat before her dressing table, staring at her reflexion.
Sarah had been thinking about the Labyrinth a lot lately. She often thought about her friends and adventures but now... another face was haunting her dreams.
Jareth the Goblin King.
Handsome and powerful but cruel as well, he had taken her brother and made her journey through the Labyrinth more tiresome and terrifying than anything she could have imagined. And yet she couldn't help feeling slight affection towards him. After all, she had asked him to take her brother away. And he had offered her so much, he seemed to genuinely care about her, no matter how evil he acted.
Then of course, there was the dream dance...
A high pitch cry echoed throughout the house and Sarah snapped out of her day-dream.
"I'm coming Toby." She called, thinking he probably had a bad dream. She went back to his room, heading straight for the cradle to see him lying there, wide awake and crying his eyes out. "Hey, it's okay. I'm here now, don't be upset." She cooed, smiling down at him.
But Toby kept on crying and it seemed to Sarah that he was looking... behind her.
She turned slowly.
"There's nothing to be scared of Toby. There's nothing... AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!"
Jareth sat bolt upright, his head ringing with an echoing scream.
