Author's Note: I'm really excited about my FFA collection now- think I'll end up having close to 70 stories here by the time I'm done...all these wonderful pairings that have my muses jumping up and down in excitement. You can also track my progress on this and my other stories at my blog, if you are so inclined.
She was understandably nervous right now- Goddess, it felt like she was back in high school, that's how nervous she felt right now. But Jareth had told her that he was concerned Sarah might take it the wrong way if he was the one to show up on her doorstep twenty years later. Willow was still mentally going through all the possible introductions when she felt a slight ping in the back of her head as she heard someone approach the door. That indicator was a byproduct of her being the one who did the activation spell- she could sense activated Slayers if she was close enough. Looking at the young lady staring at her warily as she opened the door, Willow thought she might have her intro without having to mention the Goblin King just yet.
Sarah Thompson say on her living room couch next to her 14 year old daughter and tried to process why the young redhead was telling her about her only child. It wouldn't have been so bad if Jack hadn't been on that Boston to LA flight on 9/11. She had had to deal with the pain of losing her high school sweetheart and raising a toddler on her own at the same time. After all this time, magic has to rear its ugly head in my life again,she thought angrily as she stared at her coffee, wishing for something stronger.
"Mrs. Thompson, I'm sorry to come to you with this unexpected news- I know a lot of parents of those activated have a hard time knowing their daughters have been Called to fight, but I was actually here as an envoy for someone else," Willow explained, pulling the thick envelope out of her bag and handing it to the other woman.
Sarah glanced down, seeing only her first name on the expensive card stock. But it only took her pulling out the letter and reading the first couple of lines before her head shot up and she glared at Willow. "What doe HE want now? I defeated him once- I'll be damnedif Jareth will get his hands on my daughter!"
Willow hastened to reassure her. "No, I had no idea when I came to deliver his note that Dorothy was a Slayer. He told me he just wanted to make sure you knew that while he still cared for you in his way, his fiancee- another Slayer, in fact- wanted to invite you to their wedding."
