LABYRINTH II
THE LANDS BEYOND


By: Theresa Pridemore (A.K.A. Judith Agrathea)

July 19, 1993

Plot Summary: Five years ago, Sarah traveled to a magical world called The Underground to save her baby brother, Toby, from the clutches of the infamous Goblin King, Jareth. On her journey she made unusual friends and learned life lessons galore in a beautiful and witty modern-day Alice in Wonderland. Now Sarah is once again struggling in the real world - her career as an actress is less than hopeful, and her fascination with the daily affairs of a world without magic is dwindling at an increasing rate. Little does she know that Jareth has new plans for her, and that his struggle for power (and personal identity) will bring her back to the Underground - to make new friends, to revisit the old, and to ultimately save the land from an ancient accident waiting to happen. She learns the value of secrets and fun, and even gets to meet the person lurking in her own shadow.

PROLOGUE

         "Where does the moon shine?"

         One might ask oneself this question during childhood.  And the adult might answer:

         "In the sky.  In space."

         And the child would further press:

         "How does it shine?"

         And the adult would necessarily give a very grownup response, feeling delighted with themselves that they had further enlightened this young, naive little soul.  And the child would naturally nod his head and go to his room and pretend, as if the adult had not spoken, that the moon was a crystal ball, powered by a magic man in another land, and the same moon he gazed upon every night not only shown in his land, but another magical one over which the powerful man of the mystical arts was king.

         And the grownup would see this and smile, thinking how pretty it was to be a naive little boy.

         And the grownup would never learn of her foolishness in doubting the child, because the child's beliefs, though not correct in this world, bore more merit than she would ever get a chance to learn.

        And this is how the adult becomes wiser than the child, but, unlike the child, never knows the truth.
