Jareth was back at home dealing with his annoying wife who was trying to find matching outfits for both of them to wear to the masque due in 4 days. Jareth couldn’t even concieve of the idea of matching outfits. His wife had terrible tastes in clothing he hated how she dressed him but he was willing to oblige to all she had to say in order to get her off his back about having disappeared the other night. Ofcourse she did not beleive the story about him having Kingly duties to attend to.
So Jareth had to put with her usual squabbling about him being mean to her, that she would tel her father how he treated her, that she could easily tell everyone how he still sighs for the mortal who turned him down.
Jareth had to bite is tongue and let Gertrude do whatever it was she wanted today. Her newest motion was for them to go as a famous couple. But through all her ramblings all he could do was think of Sarah and their last encounter. When he held her close to him, when they looked into each other’s eyes.
‘Sarah I wonder what you are doing now?’ He thought to himself.
“So, Jareth what do you think? Shall we go as Romeo and Juliet or shall we go as Cleopatra and Mark Antony or Venus and Adonis? What do you say? Jareth?”
Jareth looking out into nothing not noticing his wife almost waving her hands to him.
“I knew it! I knew it you snake! You wither your way into my heart and now you want to smite me with your poison!”
Jareth snapped out of his trance like state and nodded his head as she sees his wife throwing all the costumes around.
He stood up and grabbed her hand,”I grow weary of you Gertrude! Don’t get on my bad side or you shall know my dark side, luv!Or don’t you know your dear husband yet? Just choose whatever you like and be off with you!”
Gertrude stood still shaking grabbing the customes of Romeo and Juliet and leaving Jareth alone.
Jareth sat down again on his bed conjuring up a crystal where he could see what his beloved was up to.
Gertrude ran down the hallway crying desperately. Growing angrier and angrier by the minute. She knew she had to do something and quick she knew her marraige to Jareth was falling apart and she would not be made a fool of!
‘So you grow weary of me do you Jareth? Well then we must do something to remedy this.’
She transported into her room since she and Jareth did not share a bedroom chamber at Jareth’s request. She would sneak into his bed at night hoping that he would not resist her naked body next to his but Jareth had not faltered having only Sarah in his heart his body had only betrayed him when Gertrude placed confusions spells on his dinner making Jareth groggy not really knowing what was going on. She would do the same tonight but this time she would not place a spell on him but rather trick him and make him think that she was with child. But what Jareth did not know and what was not included in the contract was that Gertrude was not able to have children. She was infertile.
‘Maybe this way Jareth would treat me different. If he would think that I am with child then he would surely not leave me and maybe once and for all he would forget this Sarah. But how could he when he is always monitoring her every day affairs. I must do something before my marraige is over! I must!’
Gertrude began scheming and knew exactly what she was going to do.
Sarah and Ryan were out shopping for a fund raiser they were invited to on Sat.
“I don’t know Ryan this seems to revealing.” Sarah said as she tried on a red dress that showed her cleavage and back. It was sleek and fitting to her body.
“Well what good is it if you look that sexy in a dress and not wear it! Come on Sarah you are always to worried about being too revealing. Come on and live a bit. You are a woman now, don’t be afraid of your womanly body!” He said as he made her turn around and show it off to him.
Sarah blushed and smiled at Ryan’s comment. “I guess you are right. But it’s a bit expensive. I think I am going to try another dress and see ok. Now if you don’t mind.” She said as she shoved Ryan out of the dressing room.
“Well alright, but mind you Sarah you can afford this now. You know with all your success. You have to look what you are Sarah and you know that you are worth more than a million. Well while you try on the other dress I am going to the little men’s room ok. ”
“Ok Ryan but don’t take too long I need your opinion on this dress.”
But Ryan did not hear her cause he was gone already.
“Don’t take too long , I need your opinion” She heard in a mocking voice behind her.
“Jareth? What are you doing here?” Sarah said as he tried to cover her top exposed body. The dress only covering her waist and below.
Jareth’s sly smile making her nervous to the bone.
“Really Sarah, what happened to that prideful girl I met so long ago. Making sure her precious Ryan doesn’t take too long?”
He eyed her from head to toe admiring every naked part of her that he could.
“Is there no sense of privacy in the Underground Jareth? Or do you even know what the word means?”
Jareth smiled and grabbed the black dress she was trying on and helped her put it on. Sarah was frozen in fear but was rather intruiged by his closeness. She felt his hands touch her skin making her heart flutter. His lips so tentalizing.
‘If only he wasn’t an evil Goblin King who only wants to heal his ego. We could really have had something here.’
“Now let’s see Sarah, this dress does not flatter you one bit. Neither does this red one. And really Sarah you should try wearing Victoria Secret; her underwear is quite becoming of women. Your Fruit of a Looms are nice but you should be wearing silk and lace.”
Sarah rolled her eyes and looked into the mirror agreeing that the black dress was not flattering.
“Why not try this one instead?” He said as a medieval burgendy dress appeared in his hand in an instant.
Sarah was speechless and grabbed to place it up to her shoulders.
“I love it! This is the dress! It is perfect! How did you know?”
“Well we picked it together remember? But hey if you wanna give me all the credit then hey you owe me lunch!” Ryan said enthuciastically outside the dressing booth.
Sarah looked up and Jareth was gone. “Oh aha” She chuckled I , I guess I owe you lunch then Ryan don’t I? Wait a minute ok I will come out and you tell me what you think.
Sarah placed the dress on walked out of the booth. The burgendy dress had Princess cuffs and the it had a high waist while the thread was all shiny gold. She loved these dresses they made her feel like a Queen.
She walked out and Ryan’s face lit up.
“Wow Sarah that is so retro! Where the heck did you get that thing?”
Sarah frowned and shook her head. “Really Ryan don’t you have any sense of romance in you? This dress is a classic. You obviously don’t know my tastes all that good Ryan.”
Ryan smiled,”Alright sorry , I like it, I like it. It’s you really Sarah it’s you. Now don’t be mad at me. I hate it when you get mad at me. Now smile, give me a smile.”
Sarah rolled her eyes and barely cracked a smile. “Fine but now you owe me lunch!” She said as she closed the door to the booth.
She stared at herself in the mirror once more loving the dress.
