We're getting closer and closer to what will happen. Will Sarah save her cousin as well or will a choice be made? Without further ado Chapter 4.
Remind Me of a Babe
Toby had ended up waking up when a golin had tripped making such a noise causing Toni to pick him up and try to soothe him.
Toni rubbed his back lightly. "Oh it's going to be okay Toby." She said softly as she began to hum a little bit of a tune to try and soothe him. She didn't think that Goblins could be so noisy but she was very wrong on that.
"Get off me." A goblin said.
"Get out of the way."
"What are you talking about?" Another goblin said.
"Walk, walk, walk."
"What's the matter?"
The Goblins were having a good time ignoring the crying baby and the young woman that held onto him.
Jareth got up from his throne and moved towards Toni who held Toby. "You remind me of the babe."
"What babe." Toni said backing away from him. Her eyes wide in a little bit of worry, what the hell was he going on about? She was no babe or nothing special to anyone.
"The babe with the power."
"What power?" She asked confused. Why was he doing this and singing too? Was he flirting with her? And if he was it wasn't very good, but she had to admit that he had a good voice. Her heart pounded a little bit harder in her chest as he moved closer to her.
"The power of voodoo."
"Remind me of the babe."
Toni shook her head as the goblins laughed. She wasn't sure of why he had broke out into song, perhaps it was to entertain his goblins that he had there in the castle. But it wasn't all that entertaining to her.
"Quiet!" Jareth shouted at his goblin followers. "A goblin babe." He laughed alone only to stop when he realized that he was laughing alone. "Well?"
The goblins laughed at what their king said.
Toni scoffed a little bit walking to a place where she wouldn't be in the way of the running goblins who were either playing with one another or playing with toys.
"I saw my baby, crying hard as a babe could cry. What could I do? My baby's love had gone, and left my baby blue. Nobody knew what kind of magic spell to use." Jareth sang moving closer to Toni stroking her cheek lightly with his gloved hand only to have her swat it away.
"Slime and snails." A goblin sang.
"Or a puppy dog's tail."
"Thunder or lightning."
"And baby said."
Toby made a noise that wasn't a cry.
"Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Put that baby spell on me. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that magic jump on me."
"Slap that baby." A goblin sang.
"Make him free!"
Toni moved away from Jareth that got too close to her. What she hadn't expected Jareth to move towards her and take Toby from her arms. "Give him back." Toni said chasing afre Jareth trying to get her cousin back.
Jareth put his hand up causing her to stop. "I'm not going to hurt the babe." He said looking into her eyes. He then sat down in his throne sitting Toby on his lap. Jareth looked at Toby then to Toni. "In 9 hours and 23 minutes, the both of you will be mine."
The goblins laughed at what their king had said.
"I saw my baby, trying as hard as a babe could try. What could I do? My baby's fun had gone and left my baby blue. Nobody knew what kind of magic spell to use."
"Slime and snails." A goblin said.
"Puppy dog's tails."
"Thunder or lightning."
"Then the baby said…."
Toby cooed again.
"Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Dance magic. Put that baby spell on me. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that magic jump on me."
"Slap that baby."
"Make him free."
"Dance magic dance. Dance magic dance. Jump magic jump. Jump magic jump. Put that baby spell on me."
Toni backed away from Jareth who seemed pretty happy with himself. She couldn't believe what she had gotten herself into. This was already troublesome enough knowing that Sarah was out there somewhere all alone with no help trying to navigate the labyrinth that was before her. Toni slowly went to the window and looked out it.
Jareth looked over at her seeing the look in Toni's eyes. His nose curled a little bit knowing that look a little too well. She had hope that her cousin would be able to pull through the maze that led to his castle.
Toni's arms wrapped around herself as she looked down at the maze below. She nibbled her bottom lip softly. She could only hope that if and when Sarah got to the castle that she would know to never take family for granted again.
This is the end of Chapter 4. I hope that you guys enjoyed this chapter. It took me a little bit to figure out how I wanted this chapter to go since I'm trying to add stuff to make it a bit better and a little longer. I don't want to end the story too quickly with very few chapters. Please leave a review and let me know what you think. And if you guys have any ideas please let me know in reviews. Until next time guys.
