A Message From The Goblin King

Here is the real secret the Goblin King keeps.

Every story likes a heroine to give up her strangeness; to choose the way everyone else chooses, a family, a spouse, a bank balance or just to belong. But Sarah never forgot the Goblin King, any more than Wendy forgot Never Never Land, or Red Riding Hood the Company of Wolves. And they all tried, by time ticked on the nursery clock, by the chimes of Big Ben, by the rings of felled trees in the forest.

In the end, the ordinary kills more surely than any magic. This is why the cruellest fairy stories recommend it
