His hair was a wet tangle of gold and blue strands lying about his neck and shoulders. And though he loved the blue, he was once again thinking of changing the color of his highlights. Perhaps a maroon or deep purple. . .It would have been a very peaceful bath for him had he not been eavesdropping on Sarah and Tetra's conversation in the Aboveground.The Goblin King listened intently to the girls, taking in every word.
