I shook off the spell that the goblin’s beauty cast over me. I was here for a reason. “There was a girl, a few nights past. What did she choose?” I asked.

The goblin laughed, “The golden girl! Yes, she came to me, and greatly enjoyed her choice. You wish to have what she had?”

I nodded slowly, not sure what I was agreeing to. The goblin took my arm and led me off; I could feel its sharp claws pricking me through my sleeve.

It led me away from the market, into a copse of young willows that grew along the banks of the stream. In the center of the copse there was a clearing, and it was there that the goblin stopped, turned towards me and smiled again.

“Take off your clothing, pretty mortal,” it said, running long fingers through my hair.

I whispered Bess’ name like a prayer as I unslung my satchel and took off my shirt and breeches; the goblin must have heard me, because it cocked its head to the side and studied me for a long moment.

“The golden girl, she is your lover?” The cat eyes narrowed. “No, not a lover. But beloved, none-the-less. Why have you come?”

“Because I love her,” I answered.

It laughed, resting one long hand on my back between my shoulders, “Intriguing. Come here, mortal, and see what your golden girl bought at the goblin market.”
