Visiting Royalty
By Lattelady

Ch 11 - part I - Dancing With The Queen

Cain held the beautiful brunette in his arms. She danced with more skill than he was used to, but that didn’t lessen his desire for his accustomed partner.

Her skin was soft under his hand on her back, but he had no desire to stroke it until she purred. The scent of her perfume was intoxicating, but it didn’t make his blood burn.

“You needn’t look so tragic,” she laughed.

“I don’t know what you mean, Queen Sarah.

“Don’t you?” Her brow rose as she looked toward the couple beside them, where Princess DG was dancing with the Goblin King.

Ch 11 - part II - Rebuilding

The moment had come. The Queen and Prince Consort held their breath. The tall blonde male with the lovely brunette on his arm approached Azkadellia.

Az curtsied as they drew near and he took her hand to help her up, gently kissing it as a sign of respect.

“Princess, please accept my apology. I did nothing to help you in your time of need.” King Jareth bowed.

“Sir, if you had helped, it could have had tragic consequences.” The Princess nodded toward Queen Sarah. “Your wife has no magic and the Witch would have taken her revenge out on her.”

Ch 11 - part III - Girl Talk

“The house burst into flames. I grabbed my little brother and somehow fell through my mirror. The next thing I knew I was back in the Labyrinth!” Queen Sarah could laugh about it as she told the story to Princess DG, but at the time it hadn’t been funny.

“But you were already in love with him, weren’t you?” Deeg sighed and looked at her Tin Man deep in conversation with the tall Goblin King.

“Yes, but my heart was broken. I thought I was a traitor to the Underground. I believed I’d killed him, when I’d won Toby back.”

Ch 11 - part III - A Crystal, Nothing More

Sarah and DG sat in Finaqua’s garden with Cain and Jareth close by.

“You watch over her carefully.” The King grinned. He knew a man in love when he saw one

“Habit,” even as he said it, the Tin Man knew he was being a traitor to his heart.

“It seems that even in the O.Z., things aren’t always what they seem.” The Fae’s hands moved and a crystal danced over and around them.

“What’s that?”

“A crystal, nothing more, but look into it and you’ll see your dreams.”

When Wyatt looked, he saw Deeg captured in the sphere’s depth.

Ch 11 - part IV - Ages

“They’re talking about us.” Sarah looked over her shoulder to see her husband toss a crystal into Wyatt Cain’s hands.

“Maybe, His Highness is talking about you but…Cain…would never…”

“You love him very much don’t you?” Sarah smiled at her young friend.

“Yes, but he thinks he’s too old, our age difference too great.”

“Jareth is older than I am.”

“What, maybe ten years?” Deeg assessed the Fae King.

“No,” Sarah shook her head and whispered. “He’s over 500 and I’m 26.”

“Hhhmm, suddenly 18 annuals isn’t such a tragic difference after all.” DG’s eyes filled with determination and glee.

Ch 11 - part V - A Love Foreseen

“What were you two ladies plotting?” Jareth asked as he walked his wife back to Finaqua Palace, leaving Cain and DG sitting together under a large shade tree.

“Nothing too traitorous,” Sarah sighed. “She loves him but he says he’s too old.”

“He loves her, too. He simply needed some encouragement.” The Goblin King smiled and plucked a crystal from the air and held it high in one gloved hand, “See.”

In the sphere, the Tin Man, pulled his Princess into his arms and kiss her.

“Is that real?” Sarah sighed.

“Yes, my sweet.” Jareth nuzzled his wife’s brow lovingly.
