Staring up at the dull sky, the young woman sighed, brunette hair blowing slight in the chilled wind. "Tut, tut. Looks like snow," she murmured, rubbing her arms. She turned to the stone in front of her and smiled lovingly and brushed snow off the top and from around the base, setting the flowers in front of it. "Hey Toby," she murmured. "Sorry I haven't visited for awhile. Been really busy."

She sighed and glanced about before pulling the glove off her right hand and staring at her palm. A small green flame flared and she knelt, touching the cold ground. It warmed instantly and she sat down in front of the stone. "Last year went by really fast… between going Underground, meeting all these new people and helping with the upcoming war, I didn't realize that I hadn't come up here a lot… guess that's a good thing."

She played with what was left of the grass in front of her. "I miss you… I miss you so much… Sometimes I can't keep up the grinning face and I have to hide from everyone. I guess that's normal but… well I used to ache for days after a heartbreak. Now everyone's been helping me. Guess I'm starting to heal." She sighed.

"Lots of things are gonna change Tobe… I can feel it. It's like all of last year, everything that happened, everyone I met and the things in between, will explode this year. I'll just have to protect everyone I love to my full extent." Her eyes hardened. "I won't lose anyone else." She ran her fingers over the marble, feeling its chill. "I promise Tobe, if I meet up with you soon, it'll be after I've taken out all I can to save all I love."

A bark to her left made her turn as a dog raced up, a young blond haired girl hurrying after it though her mother called her back. Sarah smiled as the girl fell into her lap. "Hiya Emmy. Say hi to Toby. He was my brother and Riley's owner."

Her eyes widened and she turned to the stone then patted the top of it and hugged the dog. Sarah giggled. "See Toby. Emily's taking very good care of Riley." The dog barked and both girls giggled.

"Ready to go?" She turned and looked up at the man standing behind her then nodded and held out a hand. He helped her up, the blond girl hurrying back to the gates where her family stood, the dog following her.

The brunette ran a hand over the marble once more. "Bye Toby…" She kissed the top of the stone. "I promise…"

The man wrapped an arm around her shoulders as they walked towards the gate. "Promise what Sarah?"

"Tsk, tsk. You shouldn't pry Jareth. It isn't nice."

He rolled his eyes and looked up at the sky. "Looks like it's about to snow."

"Yup." She glanced at the sky. "Tut, tut. Looks like snow."

Sighing heavily, she stared at the clock watching it swing back and forth, chin in her palm, elbow on the knee crossed over her other leg. Her companion was sighing beside her, complaining about being bored while she just watched the clock swing. "Kara!" She glanced at him. "I'm bored!"

"So I heard the first seven billion times Jason. Go find something to do."

"Well you're not doing anything! Aren't you bored?"

"I could be reading if you weren't speaking."

He 'hmph!'ed and crossed his arms. She rolled her eyes heavenward with a heavy sigh. Three… two… one… "Kaaaaaaaarrrrrrrraaaaaaa! I'm bored."

"So you've said."

"But-but Kara!"

"Shut up Jason."

His bottom lip trembled. "Kara… you're so mean!"

"Yeup."

"I'm so bored!!!"

"Oh you poor thing!" They turned to their sudden audience, Sarah grinning wickedly. "Have you had to listen to that the entire time we've been gone?"

Kara scowled darkly, Jason grinning at the sudden 'not boredness' in his life. "Yes," the strawberry blond hissed darkly. "Find something for him to do now."

"Sarah!" Jason vaulted at her. "Can we do something? Like blow something up or have a food fight or something?!"

Sarah tapped her chin, apparently in deep thought before she grinned widely. "I have a much better idea."

Kara groaned, grabbing her book and walking off. "I was not included in this."

They pouted at her. "Party pooper!" When the door slammed after her, Jason turned to Sarah with a grin. "So? What's your idea?"

"Well…"

Walking into the library, Sarah paused, looking around. Tapping her chin, she peered around several cases of books before finally giving up and inhaling deeply. "EVELYN SNOW!!!" she shouted, it echoing in the vast library.

There was a shriek from the back of the room, followed by a loud thud. Grinning, she trotted towards it and found a young woman sprawled on the ground, chair overturned. Blue eyes narrowed at the brunette who grinned wickedly at her. "I hate you Sarah."

Sarah smirked. "Aw. That's not very nice Evie."

"Hmph." She held out a hand and was tugged to her feet, brushing her skirt off. "So what have you been up to?" At Sarah's wicked grin she added," no good I suppose?"

"Why Evie," she put a hand on her chest in false dramatics. "However can you assume I'd do anything that wasn't good?"

"You are the definition of mischief and being up to no good, Sarah."

She grinned. "Well, don't worry. It won't hurt you."

"Uh huh. Will Jareth try and wring your neck later?"

"Perhaps…"

Evie sighed and swatted her out of the way. "Well go cause mischief someplace else dear Sarah. I really don't want to be included in it."

"You're such a party pooper, Evie."

"Yes well, I won't be the one Jareth's angry at. Shoo fly."

Sarah stuck her tongue out and stomped off only to run into Ashley who'd been returning to Evie. "Hey Ashley! Did you have fun with Mira yesterday? We missed you at the party."

Ashley nodded sheepishly. "Yes Sarah… I just… wasn't ready to go back up there… I'm sorry."

"Hey Kiddo. It's no problem." She ruffled her hair. "We'll have a party down here to celebrate together, kay?" Ashley nodded happily. "Catch ya later."

"Bye Sarah!"

'Stay out of trouble!" Evie called after her.

"That's impossible Evie!" In the hallway, she turned right and collided with another familiar face. "Rica!"

The pink haired girl grinned and popped a bubble of gum. "Hey. How's it going?"

"Good. How was your New Years?"

"Alright I suppose. Family's the same."

"Where's Mira?"

"Recovering from staying up all night."

Sarah grinned widely. "Aw… little sis can't stay awake for so long?"

Rica grinned as well. "I suppose not."

She hooked her arm around the other girl's. "So, what mischief shall we start today? It's quite boring and I want to get the year off to a good start."

"Well… I hear the cook is making soup today."

"Shall we pay him a visit?"

"Yes, let's."

A half an hour later, Jareth was reclining in his chair at his desk when screaming echoed through the halls. He sighed and looked up as Sarah flew by screaming, then Clarica, and finally the chef who was covered in soup. He sighed again and rubbed his temples. Why do I let these people stay here?

Sarah peeked around the corner, biting at her lip. "I think he's gone."

Clarica sighed heavily. "Oh thank goddess…"

The brunette giggled. "You know… I think he may actually kill us one day."

"I wouldn't be surprised… didja see that new butcher knife he got for Christmas?"

"Yeah."

"What are you doing?"

Both yelped and spun to find a blue haired panther standing there, arms crossed over her chest. Sarah grinned widely and glomped her. "Valdis! I missed you! Didja have a good New Years?"

"I suppose. You?"

"Pretty goo-"

"I hear you and the Goblin King-"

Sarah squealed loudly. "Valdis! Does everyone know?!"

"Pretty much," both panther and neon yellow haired girl answered.

"There you two are!"

All three spun only to find the cook gaining. Sarah shrieked and raced away. "Damn it Sarah!" Clarica yelped, taking off after her. Valdis took one look at the butcher knife and disappeared.

"Let's split up!" Sarah cried.

"Good idea. Go right!" Skidding around the corner, Sarah hid in a closet and watched the chef fly by. She let out a near silent sigh and sat there for a few minutes before slowly creeping out. Someone slammed into her and she shrieked, tumbling head over heels.

"Damn it Sarah!" Clarica shouted once more. "Find a good hiding spot why don't'cha?!"

"Ah ha! I found you again!"

Sarah shrieked again and tore down the hallway. "I hate you Rica!" she cried.

"It's your fault!"

"Is not!"

"Is so!"

"Shut up and stop running!"

An hour after the screaming trio had gone by, Jareth's door slammed closed. He looked up sharply and found Sarah leaning against it, arms shaking as she tried to hold herself up. He raised an eyebrow. "You all right?"

"Cook… wants to… kill me…"

He sighed and rubbed his temples. "Sarah…"

"Not… my fault… this time…"

"Oh? And I suppose he was just asking for it? Like the time he was asking for the spiders on his head or the cake to explode?"

She grinned weakly and walked over, flopping into the chair opposite him. "He was… just… to let you know."

"Hm…I'm surprised you lasted an hour."

"I'm… surprised… he lasted an hour." He chuckled and turned back to his paper work, hearing her breathing slowing down after a few minutes. "What are you doing?"

"Writing."

"Writing what?"

"A letter?"

"To who?"

"Whom."

"Whom? Who's that?"

"No. To whom, not to who."

"Whatever. Who are you writing a letter to?"

"One of my good friends."

"Why?"

He sighed. "I'm going to visit him next week and wanted to give him a warning."

"How very… un-Jareth of you."

He sent her a dull look. "He's often out and about and I wanted to make sure I didn't waste time dropping in and having no one be there."

"There's the Jareth we know!" she chirped happily and whapped his arm. "Do I get to go with you?"

"As long as you don't drop Pop Rocks into their soup."

Sarah sighed happily, all of her tormenting for the day complete. She was standing on her balcony and watching the world pass her by in a sleepy haze of winter. The sun would be setting soon so the gray snowing haze would fade to black starry skies and-

"SARAH WILLIAMS!!!"

She grinned wickedly and hurried out of her room, plastering a frantic look on her face as she skidded into the throne room. "What?! What hap-" She stopped dead, looking around in a sort of horrified amusement.

Jareth glared darkly, hair standing on end. "Why the HELL is my throne room like this?!"

"Oh my god…what the hell happened to your throne room?!" Kira was nearly biting through her lip looking around the room. Jason had disappeared, Kara's lips were twitching frantically and Alan was examining one of the painted flowers in the corner.

He snarled. "What'd you do?!"

"Me?!" Her eyes flashed, face twisting into anger though her mind howled to laugh. "What makes you think I did this?!"

"Because you were complaining earlier that you were bored. If you'd continued complaining, I wouldn't have thought it was you but you STOPPED complaining meaning you found something to do!" He motioned to the walls. "Something to do!"

She almost couldn't contain it anymore, glancing over the painted bunnies frolicking through the flowers, rainbows everywhere and a bright sun grinning widely at the word. "I would hardly draw something like… this…"

"Sarah?"

"Ye-" She squawked as a chocolate cupcake hit the side of her head. Turning she glared darkly at the blond Goblin King who smirked wickedly. "Oh," she waved a hand, a chocolate cake appearing there. "It's on." She pitched it at him and he ducked, it slamming into Alan's head.

The man yelped and spun, Kira bursting into a fit of hysterical laughter. Thinking it was her, he scowled and threw a bowl of flour at her. She let out a cry of outrage and began pitching eggs at him but he ducked behind Kara. The strawberry blond squealed as they hit her, her clothes turning into a goopy mess. Snarling, she pointed to Sarah.

"This was all your fault!" she shrieked and began pitching pineapples at the brunette who leapt behind the table to avoid them only to get hit with several dozen water balloons. The fight escalated to entire chickens and buckets of water. It stopped only when the door opened and someone cleared their throat.

Everyone paused, either in the act of throwing or creating food and turned to find Glorificus standing there, eyebrow raised. "Hotaru would like to invite you all to dinner this upcoming weekend." He glanced at the broccoli hanging from the light and wrinkled his nose, eyes continuing to the pastel covered walls splattered with food. "Unfortunately, I must add that if a single grain of bread is thrown, I may have to remove your spleens." They all glanced at each other. "Hotaru requests your confirmation within two days." He turned on his heel and walked out.

Jareth turned and scowled darkly at Sarah pitching a soggy loaf of bread in her direction. "Why must you always embarrass me in front of my father?"

She scowled back. "Why do you always start the fights?!"

"This time it wasn't my fault! You painted the walls!"

"Did not!"

"Did too!"

"Did not!"

"Did too!"

Kira turned to Alan, hair covered in spaghetti sauce and flour on her nose. "Think we can leave without them noticing?"

Kara sighed heavily. "I would enjoy escaping any more flying food." Alan nodded his agreement and all three quietly slipped out as the meatloaf came into play.

"And then he threw a taco at me! A taco!!!"

"Hm…"

"Carmen! Tacos are like… godly! You must eat them and digest their wonderfulness! You cannot throw them at people!"

"Suppose not," the horse murmured.

"Car-men!!! Why aren't you listening to me?!"

"Cause I'm trying to eat."

"But I'm so much more interesting-"

"Hi Sarah."

"GAUGH!!!" She shrieked loudly, jumping a foot in the air and spinning around, colliding with Carmen and falling in a heap on the ground. Carmen stepped back quickly to avoid stepping on her accidentally and Astald trotted over quickly to make sure she was okay.

Cleo grinned, leaning over the fallen girl. "You all right?"

Sarah clutched at her chest. "I may be dying of a heart attack sometime soon but otherwise I'm good." The centaur laughed and held out her hands, pulling the girl to her feet. "Hey Anor." He nodded his greetings. "How bout you? How was your New Year?"

"Pretty good. Anor complained the entire time-"

"Did not."

"-but otherwise, it was a normal New Year."

"Sounds comforting."

"Hm." Cleo exchanged a glance with Anor, the pale centaur nodding. Cleo shot Sarah a sly look. "I hear someone had a memorable New Year."

Sarah blinked at her. "Huh?" Spotting Anor's smirk, she realized who they were talking about and flushed darkly. "I wonder who it could be…"

"Perhaps a former Aboveground mortal had a run in with a blond Goblin King?"

She scowled. "And how could you have heard such a thing?"

"Oh… a little ray of sunshine caught me on my morning walk and happened to-Sarah? Sarah! Get back here! Sarah! Oh please don't kill him!"

.

"And so I said 'the pineapple said ooray!'" Jason finished his joke, Kira bursting into a fit of hysterical laughter, Alan grinning widely, Kara rolling her eyes and Jareth smirking.

"Good joke, for once, Jason," Kara said.

Jason beamed and opened his mouth only to pause and turn towards the doors as they flew open, a bright red Sarah standing there. "Jason! You jerk!"

He yelped and leapt out of his seat, racing from her as she chased after him. "What?! What'd I do?!"

"How many people have you told?!"

"Not many! Just a few! And they may have told quite a few more!"

"Imma gonna kill you Jason!!!"

Jareth looked to his sisters in confusion. "What'd he do?"

"Told about seven dozen people that you and Sarah were making out," Kira answered.

"I even covered for you, you jerk!" Sarah shouted.

"Covered?"

Kira shrugged. "Guess he had something to do with the paintings in the throne room."

Jareth's eyebrow twitched. "Excuse me a moment Kira." He got to his feet and moment later he was standing in front of Jason, shoving a crystal into the man's hands.

Jason blinked at it before the crystal exploded. When the dust cleared he was covered in bright, colorful –"FLIES OF DEATH!!!!!" Screaming, he took off down the hallway, butterflies fluttering after him.

Sarah grinned and turned to Jareth. "Thank you Jareth."

"Not a problem."

"Aw," they turned to Kira who was clasping her hands together. "Give him a thank you kiss!"

Sarah snarled and leapt at her. "Kira, I'll kill you!!!"

As the two raced off, Kara turned to Jareth. "You do know this won't stop for at least two weeks. Everyone's gonna tease you two."

He sighed heavily. "I know… but hopefully it'll only last a few days, unlike the time Jason tackled you at that party. That lasted what, three months?" Kara scowled darkly and stomped off. Jareth smirked. "Three down."

Alan gave him a moment of glory before chipping in happily, "four million to go!"

Meta's head snapped up as he heard a crash and Venus' scream. "VENUS!" he shouted and raced for the kitchen, just drawing his sword as he raced through the entryway. At least half a dozen men dressed in black were in there. Venus collided with him as she was trying to run out. He shoved her behind him, holding his sword in front of him. "Six against one huh?" he asked then smirked. "Not very fair odds for you."

"AH!"

He turned as Venus shrieked again then a welcoming grin spread across his face seeing Jareth standing there, one hand on Venus' shoulder, a girl standing behind him. "You're a welcome sight," Meta stated.

Jareth nodded towards the intruders. "Who are they?"

"Dunno." He held up his sword threateningly and grinned. "Shall we?"
