Chapter three: Escape
Sarah paced the cell that she was currently being held in. She would look up every so often after hearing something move. She yelled in frustration and sat on the dirty bench that lined the cell wall. She sighed and closed her eyes, her head falling in to her hands.
"Will you quick making so much noise?" a voice within the cell said.
Sarah jumped and looked around. Her eyes finally landed on a lump that moved a bit and two dark eyes that looked at her. "Who are you?" she asked leaning toward the person some.
The man, Sarah soon found out, stood and leaned against the rail. He looked at her. "Robin de Noir is my name."
Sarah stood and stepped closer to him. His eyes never left her. "What are you doing here?" she asked him.
He pushed off of the cell railing and walked up to her. He looked down at her and placed a hand on her cheek. "You're Sarah, aren't you?"
She looked into his eyes, "Yes I am…how do you know me?"
He dropped his hand and sat on the bench. He looked up at her. His eyes roamed over her body, taking in every inch of her. He saw the wings and looked almost confused. "You are the talk of the town."
Sarah sat down next to him and let him continue. "I first heard about you at a ball my parents were throwing for the engagement of the Goblin King and my sister, Loveday. But they didn't love each other, or so they say. That's when the rumor of you was passed over the floor. My father threatened Jareth if he didn't marry Loveday he would have you killed. Though, I'm not sure how he would do that seeing as how he doesn't have any magical powers what so ever."
So Jareth was engaged. Sarah pondered that thought then thought of what Loveday must have looked like. She looked at Robin, "So why are you here?"
He looked at her, "Jareth took Maria as a hostage to ensure that you wouldn't be hurt."
"Yes, the Merryweather girl. She lives in the palace next to mine. I came after her hoping to save her. But I got lost in the labyrinth and couldn't figure my way out or anything. Time ran out and I failed her." His head dropped into his hands much like Sarah's had moments ago.
"Is she…your girlfriend?" Sarah asked.
Robin's head snapped up and he looked at her, "Of course not. I only came after her because Loveday asked me to. Nothing more."
Sarah bit her lip and nodded. She felt there was more for him coming to rescue the girl but she didn't question him any further. She looked around the cell. That's when she noticed Toby was nowhere to be seen. She stood up quickly and looked into the cells next to the one she was in. No sign of him. Where was he? She looked back at Robin and walked over to him. "If you help me get out of here and help me find my little brother, I will help you find Maria."
Robin looked at her. "How do I know your telling the truth?"
The steam punk boy looked at her. "I'm an angel." She told him and flapped her wings some.
He looked at them. He almost asked her how she got those but didn't want to, risk her getting upset. He nodded slowly and pulled her down to the bench. "The only way out is to wait for the guards to go to sleep. Once asleep we can pry the lock open by using one of your feathers."
Sarah looked at her feathers, and then thought about it. "Meaning we would have to pluck one of my feathers out…"
Robin nodded. She wanted a less painful way of escaping but if this was the only way…
"Then after that we run out of her like chickens with no heads."
Sarah looked at him funny. "And how are we going to get to Toby and Jareth?"
Robin shrugged, "We'll figure that out later." Is what he said, but he already had a plan in his head that was looking to be the only way he was going to get Maria back. He smiled at Sarah which seemed to calm her some. They both sat on the bench and waited for the goblins to go to sleep.
Jareth looked over at Toby; the little boy had grown up some since the last time he was here. He looked down at the chess set in front of him and moved his queen forward. "And you don't know why you are here?" he asked.
Toby looked up after moving his own queen taking out Jareth's, "Correct. When we woke up we were surrounded by angels and we both had wings." Toby fluttered his pure white wings a bit. "Queen said that we were changed by some of your goblins."
"Queen?" Jareth asked looking up.
Toby nodded and took out Jareth's king and smiled. "I win."
Jareth looked down at the board. How he was beat at chess he didn't know, must not have been paying attention. Jareth stood and walked over to the large window in his throne room and looked down at the prison where the current angel Sarah was being held. "And you trust Queen? Even though you just met her."
Toby looked up at Jareth after arranging the chess pieces. He walked over to him and peered at the labyrinth then hopped up onto the ledge. "Why wouldn't we? She hasn't done anything to us unlike you."
Jareth looked at him. "And what have I done?"
"Well first your goblins come to our home, turn us into angels, and send us to this place. Then we go to find you to have us turned back; you imprison my sister and have been questioning me since we started our game of chess. So tell me, why should I trust you?"
Jareth looked a little baffled, for such a young boy he was very smart. He turned and sat on the ledge as well. "I'm the only way you can get home, correct?"
Toby thought about that for a bit, "As far as I know."
"Then you have to trust me. No matter what I've done to you." Jareth smiled.
Toby looked at the man then out of the window. Something caught his eye so he turned fully around. He smirked and looked back at Jareth.
Sarah bit down on the sleeve of Robin's jacket as he plucked one of her feathers. She cringed and looked back at him. "Now I know how birds feel…" she said. Robin smirked at her and handed her the feather. Her hands were small enough to handle the feather while through the bars. They walked over to the lock and she slid her hands through the bars, she twisted the feather and stuck the end into the lock. She looked at him, "What am I suppose to do?"
He looked at her, "Your feathers are magical." He said, "Just stick it in and start playing with it. It will form into a key and unlock the lock."
Sarah nodded, almost disbelieving; she started to move the feather end in the lock. She felt a tingling feeling as the magic seeped from her body into the feather. She felt her energy draining as the feather formed the key. Robin jerked her a bit. "Don't use your energy." He said, she nodded and turned the feather. The lock unlocked and the door opened very noisily. They cringed as it opened and looked at the goblins. One of them kicked in his sleep as they walked by.
Once out Sarah grabbed under Robins arms and started to flap her wings. At first she was slow but she got up off the ground and started to fly over the goblin city. "Where are we going Robin?"
"We need to camp out for now. Make a plan up." He said. He pointed at the forest and she started to fly down. She let him down first then landed herself. She sank to the ground and breathed. Her energy was officially gone. She looked up at Robin who was already looking for sticks and dry leaves to make a fire.
She stood and walked to a large tree. She placed her hand on it and looked at the castle. She saw Jareth in the window. He was talking to Toby who was flapping his wings some. He looked out at the labyrinth and smiled. Toby knew they had escaped, he most likely saw her flying. The smart boy.
She looked at Jareth and her heart skipped a beat. So it's come to this, fighting with the man she loved to help a stranger. She looked at Robin. Though he was cute as well. She sighed and went back to her spot.
Robin looked up at her and bounced a bit on his feet in his crouching position. "You love that guy?"
Sarah looked at him and he pointed towards the castle. She laughed, more to herself, "Seven years ago he took my brother and made me go through the labyrinth to get him back."
"Yes, I've heard. You were the only one who was able to beat it." He said blowing a bit on the fire.
Sarah nodded, "Yes I was. I didn't know what love was then but now." She looked through the tree limbs and at the castle. "Now my heart says yes, but my mind says he took your brother again. Why do you love him?"
Robin looked at her and sat back. He watched as Sarah crawled over to the fire and pulled her legs into herself; her eyes captivated by the fire. "Well, just get your brother back and leave. You won't have to worry about it."
Sarah looked up at him, "And what about you?" He looked at her, "Do you love that girl?"
He scoffed, "She's just a girl I have to rescue. Nothing more." He looked at Sarah. He could tell that she didn't believe him. "She and I have been in an arranged engagement since we were born. We've never had feelings for each other. Never."
Sarah nodded, "Then why not send someone else after her?"
Robin laughed, "That would make me look bad." He sighed. "You don't understand how we run things here."
She nodded. "Yes I suppose I don't." She wrapped her wings around her body and laid down on the ground. She looked at the fire again then closed her eyes. "We can come up with a plan tomorrow."
Robin nodded and watched as she fell asleep. He already knew his plan but he needed Sarah to trust him. Though, after hearing the plan she might not so he might have to drug her. He took out a potion sort of thing that his sister gave him. He needed Sarah to drink it, but how…He looked around then heard the river nearby. He smirked and laid down himself. He would wake up before her and get breakfast. He would put the potion into some water and have her drink it.
He closed his eyes, "Wait for me Maria." He whispered into the air. "I will save you."
Jareth paced his throne room looking up every so often to see Toby sound asleep on his throne. He looked at the chess set. He needed a plan, what would he do with Sarah. He needed to send her and Toby home but he didn't have the power to change them back. Only his sister had that, and they weren't the best of friends.
He looked up as a goblin came storming in. "What is Gandolf? Can you not see I'm busy?"
The goblin looked around not really understanding what his king was busy with but shook the thought. "The prisoners, they escaped!" he said.
Toby sat up and looked at the goblin. Jareth stopped his pacing and looked at the goblin. "Prisoners?"
"Yes sir, the angel and the de Noir boy." Gandolf said.
Jareth thought about that, "de Noir boy?"
"Robin de Noir, you kidnapped Maria Merryweather and he came to rescue her but failed the labyrinth."
Jareth's eyes widened, he forgot about that boy entirely. He looked at Gandolf, "Well, it seems that we need to persuade them to come back. Now don't we?"
The goblin snickered, "Yes sire." He bowed low then left.
Toby looked at Jareth, "What are you going to do?"
Jareth walked over to the window and looked down at the labyrinth, "Your sister will be visiting soon. Shall we prepare for her, Toby?" he looked at the boy who nodded. "Let's start."
Well let me know what you all thought about this. I have to say I enjoyed writing it. Tootles^^
