Dreamy Holyday - Part 5 by hippo2 Dreamy Holyday - Part 5 by hippo2
Finally, the group arrived back at the beach. David and Sami felt that Amelia and Martha were slowly slipping into sleep again. They wouldn't have much time left. When they stepped out of the forest, they saw Babette sleeping on the beach.

"I guess it's my turn again... Sami, can you hold Amelia for a moment, please?" David draped Amelia's arm around Sami's shoulder. Then he knelt down next to Babette. Like Martha before, he carefully lifted the sleeping woman. But when he moved to kiss her, David was reluctant. Kissing Amelia again had been something he'd longed for the past months. Kissing Babette, however, didn't stir up the same feelings. But it was necessary to rescue Babette. He moved his lips closer and gave her a kiss.

Slowly, Babette opened her eyes. "Why did you kiss me, David?" she asked in a slightly annoyed voice.

"Sami and I came to rescue you." David said. "You, Amelia and Martha."

Babette yawned. "Why do you think we need rescuing?"

"Well, Amelia and Martha want to go back with us to our world."

Babette closed her eyes. "Good for them, if they want to go back. I don't!" Babette mumbled.

David was baffled by this answer. "You don't want to go back? But you don't belong here!"

"Is that for you to decide?" Babette asked. "What do I have back in the human world? A crappy job, no real partner, growing old. Here, I don't have all those worries."

"I... I..." David stammered. Then he turned towards Sami. "Sami, will you try your luck?"

Sami shook his head. "I have no intention to kiss a human. Besides, Babette apparently doesn't want to come with us. You should respect her decision." David gave up.

"Now, it's my turn!" the goddess Ishtar said. "Dreama, I summon you!"

A female genie with red skin and a white afro appeared. "What's your bidding, mistress?"

"Dreama, I think it's time to invite this woman to join our community." Ishtar produced a red, round jewel and passed it to Dreama.

"I do as you bid, Mistress!" Dreama hovered over to Babette and placed the jewel inside Babette's navel. Then, Dreama connected her smoke tail to the jewel. She hovered over Babette and fell asleep. Suddenly, Babette began to stir. For a few seconds, it seemed that Babette was about to wake up. But then she settled into an even deeper sleep and started to snore loudly.

"What happened?" Sami asked.

"Dreama has joined Babette in her dreams." Isthar explained. "Now, Dreama will offer to Babette the chance to join the ranks of my worshipers. If Babette agrees, she becomes an inhabitant of this world."

"I guess we will never see Babette again, then?" David asked.

"I wouldn't say that. Maybe Babette will visit your world. But she will stay only for a short time, since this will be her home."

"How long will it take to convert her?" Sami asked.

"That's different. Babette has already shown interest in this world. Otherwise, I wouldn't have sent Dreama to her. But, normally it takes some time." Ishtar explained. "But that's not of your concern anyway. You should go now. Unless Amelia or Martha has changed her mind and wants to stay here."

"No, thanks! Thank you, but no." Amelia and Martha replied.

"We better go now." David took Sami's lamp. "Sami, I wish that you would open a portal back to our world."

"Your wish is granted." Sami blinked. A portal appeared right in front of them. David, dragging Amelia with him, and Sami, supporting Martha, stepped through the portal leaving Babette behind in her new life.

Yeah, I'm interested too. It's quite a challenge to write and connect all storylines.

Love the pic to go with the story! As for where I think the story should go, I'm curious as to how 6B would go!

I wonder if 6A would technically interfere with the original wish...
I'd pick 6A though even though it writes Babette off.

What do you mean with original wish? The wish that brought the girls to SSU? why should 6A interfere with that wish?

well even though they were noticed after 3 days, another interpretation of that wish is some force would make them leave(or make something happen to make them leave)

Here's Babette's wish: "Martha, I wish that you open a portal to a wonderful beach, where we can spend the next three days without being missed at school or our jobs and where no horny guys will constantly chase us."

She wished for the portal so some kind of teleport back is no option. There's actually a reason why a teleport won't work. But I won't spoil it here.

I think the wish was perfectly granted: The girls weren't missed for three days. There were no boys at SSU at all, until Sami and David arrived. I don't think Sami and David would count as "horny guys" since they came because they worried for the girls. I'd say the wish was perfectly granted.

I'll post both versions next weekend. Then you can decide. The rules of the game are also explained in my current journal entry.

It's still a valid choice. We'll see what will come out of it.
