Sarah looked around in the ruin Escher Room, waiting for the Goblin King to appear. She turned her head around the room until she saw him coming out from a arch. He wore all white along with a long feathery cloak, looking intimidating and intense. But that didn't distract Sarah. She was determined to get her brother back, she had maid it to the castle, she had won the battle, now all she had to do was win the war.
"Give me the child." Sarah said when he approached her, her voice full of bravery.
"Sarah beware." The Goblin King said circling her like a predator waiting to pounce. "I have been generous up until now, and I can be cruel." His voice was calm and silky.
"Generous?" she said in a incredulous tone. "What have you done that is generous?"
"Everthing!" he said getting frusterated. "Everything you have wanted I had done, you asked for the child to be take. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time." he pointed to a clock behind him that appeared out of nowhere, with out turning around. The hands on the clock were spinning quickly around the clock. "I have turned the world upside down and I have done it all for YOU!" he stopped circling to he could look strait at her. "I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me, isn't that generous?" he asked calmly.
Sarah didn't answer. She just looked at him with no fear. "Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered." she started walking towards him and the Goblin King backed away. "I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin city." she continued. The Goblin King looked at her looking fearless, but worried on the inside. "To take back the child that you have stolen. Fore my will is as strong as yours, and my-"
"Stop!" The Goblin King interrupted, commanding her. "Wait. Sarah look what I'm offering you," a circular crystal appeared in his finger tips. "Your dreams."
Sarah ignored him and continued to advance towards him. "And my Kingdom as great."
"I ask for so little." he said. "Just let me rule you, and you can have everything that you want."
"My Kingdom as great...my Kingdom as great." she said wracking her brain for the next line. "Damn!" she said swining her head in frustration. "I can never remember that line."
"Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave." he begged in a pleading tone.
"My Kingdom as great... my Kingdom as great." she paused, and looked at him with a triumphant look. The Goblin King looked worried. "You have no power over me!"
Sarah's eye popped open, a sheen of sweat was on her fourhead. I had been two weeks since she had bested the labyrinth and she has had nightmares ever since about it. It seemed like she could never escape it no matter how hard she tried. She put away all her things that mattered to her most when she wanted to remain a child, but it didn't work. She still constantly thought about the labyrinth.
She looked around the bedroom that she was in looking for her bestfriend Noelle. She was nowhere in sight. She got up and walked around her friends house, looking for her friend's family. She saw no one.
She went to the living room, thinking they might be watching TV. But no one was there, only the TV was on and it was switched to the channel 5 news. She paid no mind to the TV until the anchorman said, "Tragedy has struk! All over the world it seems, has been covered with mysterious hight walls that constantly change so there is no way out. People have been being captured by little green creatures that- AH!" All of a sudden a Goblin that Sarah saw when she went to the Labyrinth attacked the anchorman. She heard screaming in the background and the camera got knocked over. The channel quickly turned into feedback and then to colorful horazontal lines, telling that the program got shut off.
Sarah's breathing was ragged. She looked at the TV with wide eyes. "It can't be!" she rushed towards the living room window and thrust opened the window curtains harshly. What she saw made her gasp. The town outside her window was covered by high brick dark brick walls. She covered her mouth with both her hands and her hands widened even more. She started to back away from the window, thinking if she got further away, it would all just disappear.
She kept backing up until her back hit something hard. She removed her hands and jumped. Before she could turn around she felt two arms embrace her. "Hello Sarah." said a sultry voice in her ear, a voice she knew all to well. Tears came to her eyes before she started screaming at the top of her lungs. She thrashed against the arms trying to exscape but failing.
On hand came to her mouth and another held a cloth with harsh chemicals in it. He put the cloth to her nose and she breathed it in, causing her to pass out.
The Goblin King did a evil satisfied smirk. He may have no power over her, but chemicals did. He shifted his hold on her so that he was carrying her like a baby. He looked down at her with a loving look and said in her ear, "I'm back Sarah."
