Jareth/Sarah Romance Fanfic
Love without your heartbeat
"You have no power over me." Those words haunted him day and night. The Goblins all knew. There was no denying it. He was in love with Sarah. For the billionth time that month – he cursed her and then he cursed himself. He was not supposed to have these feelings – for anyone. Yet she was so tempting….so very tempting. Her confidence, her refreshing defiance, and the way she looked at him – not with fear, but with confusion, and eventually an understanding of him as an adversary. Like it or not, she understood him in ways that no one else could, cut open his heart and let it bleed. And the cruelest part – all was unintentional. Sarah had no idea of the power she held over him. He slammed his fist onto his desk, causing the goblins around him to jump. Restless, Jareth moved quickly and quietly to the window, parting the goblins like the red sea. A crystal appeared in his hand, and gazing into it, he saw Sarah, sleeping. His expression softened, all anger washing away. Running his hand through his mane of wild blond hair, he touched it lightly and it began to spin. Remembering, he murmured softly "I can`t live within you."
Sarah: The Dream
Sarah was dreaming. She was following staircase after staircase calling for Toby. Suddenly she reached a platform. The Goblin King stepped out of the shadows. "Sarah." His words were full of heartache and longing. She stopped in her tracks. "Sarah. I need you. I need my champion. Come back with me. Return to the Labyrinth." She shook her head. "I have Toby and …." He cut her off. "How many times have I told you to forget that irritating child!"
"He happens to be my brother!" she shot back.
"If you can`t leave him – then bring him!"
"I am never taking him back there again."
"So….now we get to it. You don`t trust me, do you precious?"
Sarah shifted her feet. "You have never given me any reason to." She said softly.
"Precious, I gave you everything. Please trust me."
Shivers went up and down her spine when she heard her nickname. He stalked toward her, cupping her face. His eyes smoldered at her. Her breath hitched and she shook her head.
"I am so going to regret this." Sarah muttered under her breath as she took his hand.
The Goblin King smiled. Sarah was back.
Sarah: Back in the Underground
Groaning, Sarah rolled over, burrowing under the covers. That was the best night`s sleep she`d had in…..wait that was the best night`s sleep she had ever had. She cuddled into the pillows, inhaling Jareth`s scent. Jareth? She sat bolt upright and looked around her. This wasn`t her room. She scrambled to the window, praying not to see what she dreaded and hoped she would. The Labyrinth was spread out before her. Hello old friend. Miss me? She thought.
"Enjoying the view are we?" a dark chuckle came from the doorway. Sarah`s heart started beating faster when she heard his voice. The voice that stirred something inside her, that both scared and thrilled her.
"I suppose that was all real – the dream I mean, and me agreeing to come here…." She trailed off, flushing and rambling. He raised an eyebrow.
"Sarah, dreams are indicators of what can happen in real life. They also, can be the future, the past and the present. Naturally, if I we make an agreement in a dream, it still holds true in real life. An agreement is an agreement." Sarah`s head swam.
"What exactly did I agree to again?" she asked. "You agreed to remain here permanently." Sarah gasped. "Excuse me – WHAT? I did not."
She put her hands on her hips. "I did not."
Sighing, Jareth summoned a crystal. "There, look! See for yourself if you must!" Sarah squinted into the crystal – replaying the scene she had figured was only a dream.
"You-you…..you bamboozled me – it doesn`t count!" she screeched. He laughed deeply.
"Oh but precious that`s the best part. It most certainly does." He murmured, twirling a crystal idly in his hand. Suddenly, a strange calm settled over her. She felt oddly at peace. As if a huge weight had been lifted off her. She would never see her family again. She would never see any of them again. Not her horrible stepmother, not her irritating brother – not her uncaring father. No more problems at school – no more hiding her true self, who really…..belongs here. She began to giggle at her realization, and soon she was throwing her head back, laughing and twirling like Julie Andrews. The world spun as she spun, and she tripped backward, still laughing into his arms. His brow was furrowed, a puzzled amusement danced across his face. "Well, well precious. That wasn`t exactly the reaction I expected…am I to understand you will enjoy your time here…..with me?" She flushed and looked away. He smiled, pleased at her reaction.
"We will see" was all she would say, still blushing as the doors closed behind him.
