    She wet her lip. “N-no.”

    .

    With her family worried over their next meal, Sarah did the only thing she could. She boarded a ship that would take her and twelve other girls to the infamously reclusive king's castle. There, he would choose which of them to keep. She hoped to God she would be one. But was she up for the challenge?

    Summary

    Underground, it is common knowledge that anyone wishing to marry the Goblin King must be victorious in a challenge set by the Labyrinth itself.

    No one expected the Labyrinth to choose its young human Champion as the challenge to be bested.

    As for Sarah, she’s becoming increasingly concerned by how much she enjoys defeating Jareth’s would-be-spouses with a wide range of boardgames.

    It should be noted that Sarah is also an unrepentant cheat.
