DISCLAIMER: If it's a setting, scene, character, or idea from Labyrinth, it's (c) Henson, Lucas, Froud, Bowie, Connelly, etc, and NOT MINE. For song lyrics credit (which are ALSO not mine), see chapter one.
A/N: Stay tuned at the end for thanks, etc. This is the promised other possible ending. It is the ONLY other ending that I've written, and now this story is done. Really.
"Goblin King, I would like to talk to you in the mirror… RIGHT NOW."
Some goblin snorted in sleep.
The Goblin King's smirk broadened even as a light flared into his eyes.
Groaning over it, Sarah bit her lip and decided. She would risk it.
"I wish to speak with the Goblin King in the mirror… RIGHT NOW."
"Why, cruel-eyed Sarah, how lovely to see you again."
Sarah's double-take at the interpretation of her words nearly gave her whiplash. Yes, there was the Goblin King, visible in her mirror. He was behind her in her room, looking at her using the reflection.
"What – How – But – Not – " As Sarah's spluttered attempts to form a coherent sentence increased in urgency, the Goblin King drew nearer. He rested a single finger on the top of her head.
"What's said is said, Precious. Now, we've spoken using the reflection, thus fulfilling the wish. What a pity that there's no cost for it."
And he was gone, leaving some glitter to shimmer in the air.
The author would like to thank the following for posting reviews: Autumn O'Shea Swan, Taria Robotnik, Lylabeth 1, bluepixy13, Angel of Darkness12345, and Goblin Girl. If I were cruel like either Sarah or Jareth, I would have waited a couple of days in between posting each of the chpaters, with a longer delay before this one...
This story is done. However, there are plot-bunnies vying for my attention, but they have to compete with several on-going stories and the fic exchange. At some point, this story MIGHT continue. But NO PROMISES!
