Disclaimer: I don't own labyrinth or David Bowie. But if anyone wants to give me a late birthday pressie….
Summary: What if there was a girl after Sarah? A girl more willing to believe in the world of magic and give it the chance it deserves (after she get over the shock). Read and see….
A/N: This is my first labyrinth fanfic but hopefully it will be up to standards with my other stories.
"If you don't mind." The goblin king was glaring at me, causing my laughter to slowly fade. After all one didn't laugh at someone how had the power to chuck you in a bog.
"My apologies, Your Highness."
He seemed shocked at my manners, but then seemed to shake himself slightly.
"Jareth will do fine. Now I must ask. Is it common were you live for girls to dress in such a fashion?"
I looked down at my clothing, taking in the t-shirt and jeans I had pinched from my older brothers' laundry sometime before. Being 4ft 11 they were very baggy but also comfy. I wouldn't normally have worn them to bed, but with a toddler sharing your room, you don't want to have to get up to look after him with not much on.
"I don't suppose so. But they are comfy and it wasn't like anyone was going to see me except my family." I shrugged as if this explained everything.
Jareth still looked faintly confused but let the matter drop.
"While your here I expect you to dress properly" He threw a crystal at the wardrobe " you will find suitable dresses in there…"
"HELL NO. I'm not wearing a dress. No way. No how."
Jareth glared at me in annoyance. I had a feeling people didn't say no to him very often.
"You will wear a dress and meet me in the dining hall in 20 minutes. This is not up to discussion."
Before I could respond he vanished leaving a patch of glitter on the carpet.
I sighed before opening the wardrobe. It was full of frilly dresses made of silk and lace. I shuddered in horror before a idea struck me. It was completely stupid and possibly the most foolish thing I would ever do, but I stuck my head out into the hall and, seeing it empty, started trying doors till I came to a dark majestic room, filled with dark furniture and drapes. A large window over looked the labyrinth but I ignored it as I headed to a large wardrobe shoved in one corner. Opening it I took in the black trousers and white poets' shirt.
I grinned wickedly.
"Guess what I'm going to wear to dinner!"
I sung to the room, as I started to pull off my clothing.
