Epilogue: Two years later
Sarah grinned at the little girl trying so hard to walk towards her. "Come on Danya, you can do it sweetie," she gently encouraged her. The baby looked surprised as she promptly fell on her behind, and Sarah laughed asDanya let out a whimper.
"Oh, baby, it's okay, come here to Mommy." Sarah scooped up her daughter and held her close, breathing in her adorable baby scent.Danya gurgled happily in her mother's arms.
Karen and Richard were watching the scene, smiling. They had come to enjoy their visits to the Underground, and now that they had a granddaughter, they looked forward to their trips even more. Their visit today was just coming to an end, and Richard took the baby from Sarah's arms.
"Say good bye to Grampa, come on Danya, you can say it. Say, goodbye Grampa!" Sarah and Karen laughed at Richard's attempts to get the baby to talk. He did it ever since she was born, and although she managed to spit out a few words here and there, she had yet to speak to her grandfather. Sarah thought it was cute how hard he tried.
After saying their good-byes, and with Richard and Karen givingDanya one last kiss, Sarahconjured a crystaland sent them back home.
She grinned to herself as she walked withDanya in her arms down to the nursery. After all this time, she still amazed herself when she used magic. She didn't think she'd ever get used to it.
As she was lyingDanya down for a nap, she felt someone staring at her, and turned to see Jareth leaning in the doorway, watching them with a smile on his face.
"Hi, love," he said to her, walking over to her and kissing her on the cheek. "How was your visit with your parents? DidDanya finally talk to your dad?" Sarah laughed and shook her head. "No, she didn't, but he had a good time trying! We had a fun afternoon, didn't we, sweetie?" she cooed, looking down at the sleepy baby.Danya sighed her agreement and drifted off to sleep.
Sarah and Jareth stood with their arms around each other, watching their sleeping child. Jareth looked at his daughter's angelic face, and was amazed for the zillionth time that this precious little girl was his. He, the mighty Goblin King, was a daddy, and he loved every second of it. He turned to the Goblin Queen and kissed her. She took his hand and led him next door to their bedroom.
He had a smile on his face as he sat on the bed and tried to pull her down with him. But she stopped him. "Wait, love, I have something I need to tell you." She looked so serious that he felt a flutter of nervousness in his stomach. "Sarah, my love, what's wrong?"
She tried to look serious, but couldn't contain a smile. "Nothing's wrong at all, Jareth. I just have some news for you." Her eyes were shining with joy as she looked at her husband.
His eyes widened. "You're not—are we-?" She laughed and nodded her head. "Neela confirmed it this morning while you were away."
He laughed as he stood and grabbed her in his arms, twirling her around. "Oh, I can't believe it, we're going to have another child! I love you so much!" He kissed her deeply, filled with joy at the prospect of having another child with Sarah. He loved her more every day, and continuously thanked the fates for bringing her back to him.
As they fell onto the bed, Sarah thought about how happy she was here, how quickly she had settled into her role as Goblin Queen. Shel oved her husband more than the day she married him, and as she thought about her life, her husband, her child and the baby growing inside her, she silently thanked the heavens for giving her happily ever after.
A/N: Whew, all done! If you can't tell, I'm a sucker for happy endings! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who reviewed, you all gave me a lot of encouragement to get this written. I've had a lot of free time lately, which was why I was able to write and post so much so quickly. Luckily, I wasn't paid a visit by that nasty little thing called writer's block (knock on wood). This was my first fanfic, and I was nervous that no one would read it. Or that people would read it and think it sucked :-) So I am eternally grateful to those of you who didn't think this sucked, and even more grateful to those of you who reviewed. Yay, you guys are great!
I have a sequel in mind for this story, so maybe someday soon you'll see that on here. For now, I'm working on another Sarah and Jareth story, very different from this though. I'm not sure if I like it, but I'll be posting the first few chapters soon to see what everyone thinks. So keep your eyes out for that, coming soon to a computer screen near you!
