Karmic payback - Part 1 by hippo2 Karmic payback - Part 1 by hippo2
The bellhop at the entrance of the Grandhotel was quite surprised when three young people, more children than adult, appeared suddenly in a flash. They were two girls and one boy. One girl had blonde hair. She wore blue jeans and a green t-shirt - definitely too cold for a winter day. The boy had dark brown hair. He was wearing jeans, too and a short-sleeved jersey. The strangest clothes were the second girl's. She was wearing a purple vest with golden coins and embroidery on it, as well as teal harem pants and purple, pointy shoes. Together with her coffee-brown skin and her dark locks, she was very exotic in appearance.

"Is this the right hotel, Max?" the blonde girl asked.

"Yes, Grace, it's the right one. I was here last year." Max replied.

Grace nodded and turned towards the dark-skinned girl, who looked very exhausted. "Are you alright, Alex?"

Alex took some deep breaths. "Thanks, but teleporting half way around the world is maybe still too much for me."

"What are you doing here?" the bellhop asked. "How did you get here?"

"Great! He has seen us arrive." Max complained.

"I'll take care of him. AMNESIA!" Grace flicked her fingers at the hotel boy. Sparks flew from her fingers and engulfed the hotel boy's head. "Let's go and find Martha before he snaps out of it."

"What did you do to him?" Max asked.

"I erased his memory of the last few minutes. He won't remember seeing us teleporting here. And Alex, you better change your clothes."


A few seconds later Alex (who had changed with a blink into teal jeans and a purple vest), Grace and Max stood in front of the reception desk. The receptionist was a woman of maybe 20 years. "Hello Martha!"

"Grace! Alex! Max!" Martha greeted them, totally surprised. "What are you doing here?"

"We decided to visit you for the weekend. Grace got the idea and I provided transportation." Alex explained.

How long do you plan to stay here?" Martha asked

"Hmm, a day, two at the most," said Alex, "that's about right, right Grace?"

"Yes. My parents think that I'm over at your place. So I guess they won't mind when we are back on Sunday. So, we need a room."

"Your parents don't know you are here? Then I better give you two separate rooms. Or do you need a room as well, Alex?" Martha said, a bit angered.

"I can sleep in my lamp, no problem," said Alex,

"Sounds good to me, how much for a couple of rooms?" asked Grace

"That would be 100 US-Dollars each. But, I can give you a reduction. 85 US-Dollars for each room."
"Good thing I got a job this summer," said Grace, as she took out a debit card, "let's get this settled, Martha."

"If you allow, I'll pay." Max offered, and took out his own credit card.

Grace knew that Max parents were quite rich. Still, she felt bad about living on his tab.
"Well, okay Max, but I'm paying you back later, no ifs, ands, or buts, got it?" asked Grace.

Max nodded and passed his card to Martha. Martha processed the payment and passed two sheets to fill out with their details. While Grace and Max were filling out the sheets, Martha asked Max. "How are your parents and your sisters doing? Any news from Sheryl?"

"My parents are fine and Amy is the best sister I could wish for. She's very successful at school and she helps me a lot, if I ask for help with my homework." Max gave his report. "But what do you mean about a 'Sheryl'? I never had a sister with that name."

Martha was perplexed for a moment. Then she remembered that Amy made a wish to change the family's history in such a way that Max would stop complaining about Sheryl. Martha assumed that this wish had also changed Sheryl's history so she was never a part of Max's family. Still, Martha wondered what reality the wish had created for Sheryl. Maybe Sami could explain it to her.

Next, Grace and Max returned the filled forms. Martha took the forms and gave Grace and Max their key cards. Then she called the bellhop. The young man came over. "Rooms 231 and 232." Martha said to him.

"May I carry your luggage?" the bellhop asked.

"Ah, just a sec," said Grace, as she went around a corner, making sure no one was watching. She reached into her pockets and pulled out a couple of small bags. Grace chanted and the bags grew in size. Finally Grace walked back over and handed the bags to the bellhop. "Thank you very much." she said.

The bellhop took the bags. "This way, please." He lead them away to their rooms.

So, in the image from left to right:
Bellhop, Grace, Max, and Alex (possibly Alexandra)?
I've forgotten how Grace has the powers to cause amnesia.

Grace is a witch. A simple amnesia-spell to erase the memories of the last minutes seems to be very handy. Helps to cover up your tracks.

Two things:

1. Interesting story, I can't wait to see where it would go
2. It is "Holiday" not "Holyday."

I'd almost feel sorry for Martha, if I didn't think she needs a heavy dose of consequences.
