She left the kitchen in a huff, leaving Sarah standing there, crying. The sound echoed around the kitchen making her feel worse.

"Sarah, don't cry. Please don't cry. Mama didn't mean it. Please, stop crying." Toby said as he pulled at her shirt.
"Oh, Toby. It's just; she annoys me, like you don't like asparagus." She says picking him up. Toby hugs her and attempts to wipe one of her tears away but his little hands aren't enough.
"It looks weird." He said and pulled a face. Sarah laughed, soon Toby joined in.
"How about some dinner, old chap?" Sarah tried an old English accent. He giggled and did his own version.
"A cup of cream and a scone should be in order!" he squealed with delight. She started on some noodles with leftover steak pieces stirred in. Sarah was now a young lady, about to f

'The New Shipment'
Sarah slept, and often when humans sleep they have dreams. Tonight was no different. Visions of a ball in a bubble swirled her inner thoughts. A sugar white, beautiful victiorian-esque dress clad girl danced with the Goblin King. This was not odd, but the song he sang to her was. He sang deeply about Kings, Queens, of hard labour and most importantly of all, keeping warm together. Sarah was swirled about by a dark, mysterious, platinum blond, gorgeous man. By his royal manner and the way others talked to him Sarah knew he was the King, even better, he was the Goblin King. He leant in and whispered;
"Wake up Sarah. Remember me. Please" his breath tickled her ear.
"But who are you? How do I know you?" Sarah asked not willing to pull away but rather focused on how gently he held her. His arms encircled around her waist in both a protective and affectionate embrace.
"Oh, Sarah. What will I do with you?" he laughed a throaty sound that rumbled through

"The Lost One"
Sarah awoke in her room. It confused her how she got there, sitting up she was immediately pushed down by hands. At first she panicked but then realised it was just Dr. Miles, the practitioner down the road. He frowned at her.
"Have a bad dream? I'm sorry to startle you. Sarah, you need to lie down. You passed out from exhaustion. Your father is so worried about you, he brought you home. Please, rest. Now, follow the light with your eyes please." He said conducting a manner of tests on her while Sarah sat dazed by the whole situation. The Doctor left and she could hear his feet on the stairs as he went to talk to her father.
"Oh joy. What nonsense I'll hear about this." she said lying down and snuggling in to her duvet. Her room was dark and as she glanced at her clock, it read 05:32 DD. Sarah was still so tired and she couldn't be bothered to give the stupid numbers a second thought. Sighing, she fanned her hair out onto the pillow behind her. Sar
As The World Falls Down--1It was mid-afternoon in Salazen Grum; and both the sun and the Red Queen had reached their peak and were now beginning to descend. The sun was traveling west; the Queen was allowing herself to sink into a state of nervousness.As The World Falls Down--15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She was testy and irritable, as she usually was, but today's events seemed to goad within her a certain anxiousness to accompany her bad temper.
Stayne, standing dutifully next to her, watched her fingers clench and unclench on the arms of the throne. She bit her lip and made a visible attempt to relax, leaning back into the large throne as far as her massive head would allow, only to lean forward again, picking up her small scepter to flick some imaginary dust off of it.
The Knave's brows creased, not so much out of concern than for curiosity. Normally when the Red Queen had something on her mind, some trifle or another, she wasted no time in whining to him about how it wasn't fair or that it was giving her a headache.

"Sarah, I will not takes you back to the Underground! Not no way! Not no how!" Hoggle yelled shaking a finger at the now thirty-year-old Sarah Williams; why had he promised her one birthday wish of her choosing?
"Oh come on Hoggle! It's my birthday!"
"Do you have a death wish for your birthday? Because this is a good way of gettin' 'round to it if ya do!"
"He can't still be mad at me I mean, it's been fifteen years! I won, he lost simple as that. I can't imagine that he would still be a sore loser after all these years."
Hoggle glared at the brunette before him. He'd been visiting her weekly since her trip through the labyrinth and they'd become closer friends than Hoggle would have ever thought possible. The, in his opinion, young girl before him was like a sister to him and he didn't want any harm to come to her, but she was pleading with him to take her to the

My footsteps echo in the crowded mall. People are all around me, looking. Wondering what I'm doing running through the mall. Well, I'm in a hurry because it's happened again. That's the third time this month. The record is six. Six girls ran off to be with their one true love. Four of those came back, begging for their jobs. One of them was found dead. The other never to be heard of again. The ones who came back were never the same again. The facts are cruel but vitally true.
'Where have you been?' The boss, Marc asks.
'Trying my best to get here sir.' I say, grumpy. I stare at him with intentions of lashing out and killing him with a near by pen. But I don't.

Sarah shrugged on a black jean jacket and grabbed a small black clutch before heading out the door to see Todd waiting on the curb standing next to a sleek black Jaguar. He wore dark slacks and an oxford shirt with a tie under an unzipped dark leather jacket. He smiled when he saw her and brushed back a strand of his dark hair behind his ear before opening the passenger's door of the Jag. "You look lovely tonight, Sarah," he flattered, taking her hand to usher her into the car.
"Thanks Todd, you clean up pretty well yourself," she replied moving to sit in the leather interior.
Todd closed her door and walked around the front to get in the driver's side. He started the car, put it in gear, then pulled out onto the street. "So where are we going?" Sarah asked fiddlin

Sarah Williams was not an ordinary person. She didn't have an average life. She didn't have average friends and she did not see average everyday things. She had never been an average person because she was one of only a handful of human mortals who were granted with what some like to call the sight. Some mortals with the sight were sidhe seers; however, Sarah always saw much more than simply the Fae.
This fact, however, was not something Sarah herself had always known. When she was far younger, she had believed with all her heart and had known what she saw. She hadn't always been aware that everyone else didn't see these things. As she grew, she dismissed the creatures of her childhood as the whimsies of a fanciful mind.
When Sarah turned fifteen, though, things were forever changed when she ventured the land of the Fae. Suddenly, she discovered that everything she'd been telling herself for years was untrue. She realized tha

"I have to what?" Sarah deadpanned.
Jareth let out a sigh and tightened his grip on her hand. "I promise to be there with you the entire time and Healer Orin will be supervising the procedure. I trust him with my life with your life."
Sarah sat completely still; the blank look on her face mirrored the still waters of her thoughts. "I I have to die in order to live forever?" she stuttered.
"Sarah, I know this sounds bad, and I'll admit that it is risky, but the council requires it. We're on their good side right now and we don't want to jeopardize that."
"Jareth, you can't honestly tell me you want me to do this because the High Council told you to do it. I know you, rules are meant to be broken and just how the hell am I suppose to live if I have to die?"
"I confess that the idea of being with you forever is quite appealing to me. I had hoped that it would be to you too."
Sarah narrowed her eyes and pulled her hand away from Jareth's. "

"What do you mean you're going out on a date?" Jareth asked, staring at Sarah from across the kitchen table.
"It means that, while it's none of your business, I'm going out with a person of the opposite gender for a couple hours tomorrow night for dinner and drinks," Sarah replied setting down her carton of Moo Shu pork.
Jareth frowned and took a bite of Kung Pao chicken. "Who is the lucky gentleman?"
She chewed slowly, taking her time before answering, "Todd, my ex-boyfriend."
He gave her a pointed look, his unasked question hanging clearly in the air, why?
"He said he's changed. I think everyone deserves a second chance." Jareth raised an eyebrow. "You blew your second chance by going through my things."
"Really? Is it that awful? If you would just tell me what's going on I might not have gone through your room."

Chapter 2: Discoveries
Jareth waited a couple of minutes after Sarah left to move. He was still impressed by her acceptance of the situation, and because of that he wanted to respect her command to stay out of her room... but temptation is great. He slowly moved toward her room, but as his hand was about to touch the doorknob, he pulled back sharply and reprimanded himself. There were plenty of other places in the apartment to explore without invading her bedroom.
Trying to ignore the tempting door to Sarah's bedchamber, Jareth moved into the room he'd slept in last night. He glared at the small couch; a love seat that wasn't quite long enough to allow him to stretch out then turned his gaze to the rest of the small room. A small boxy TV sat across from the couch with a coffee table separating the two. One wall held a medium sized window and another was completely covered with bookshelves.
