Sarah shifted on the bed, surreptitiously touching the back of her wrist to Toby's temple. She still couldn't believe Jareth was dead and gone, but Hoggle had confirmed that Jareth wasn't anywhere to be found. It remained to be seen if he would somehow revive, but for now, Hoggle, Ludo, Sir Didymus and more were safe now from Jareth. Everyone she cared about was safe from Jareth.
Everyone was safe from Jareth, but not safe from this city. Right now, she was biding her time, waiting for the increased symptoms of the tainted water to show themselves after they'd both eaten soup made with tap water today and she'd had at least one cup of Nathan's coffee. She wouldn't admit it, but she was worried that this on top of whatever was wrong with her would be worse, but she intended to fight it. Her stomach was already knotting, but thus far, the nausea hadn't turned to vomiting.
She was also biding her time, waiting to see how watching a man die, even one who'd disappeared, would affect her little brother. He hadn't even seen a vampire die in person yet, so this was truly his first experience with death.
