Karmic payback - Part 8 by hippo2 Karmic payback - Part 8 by hippo2
A few minutes later, Martha and Max returned to Grace's room. Grace was already doing better. "Glad you brought Alex back. Let's summon her." She rubbed the lamp and Alex appeared.

"I'm Alex, the genie of the lamp. I will grant you one wish, mistress!" Alex appeared and bowed.

"Cut it out, Alex. I'm not your mistress." Grace replied. "What has happened?"

"Svetlana made her own genie turn me into a genie slave. Now I'm bound to grant one wish to whoever summons me."

"Let's end this nonsense. Alex, I wish that you become a free genie again." Grace stated her wish.

"I'll try!" Alex replied. She closed her eyes and concentrated. Alex mustered all her powers but she couldn't break the spell. "I'm sorry, but this magic is too strong for me."

None of the friends knew what to do now. But then, Max had an idea: "If Gregorios has transformed you, his magic is surely too strong for you. Maybe Martha can break the spell."

"Good idea. Can you wish for it please?" Martha answered.

Max rubbed her lamp again. "Martha, I wish that you turn Alex back into the free genie she was before!"

Martha blinked and Alex's bracelets turned to dust. "I'm free. I'm free again. Thank you, Max, thank you, Martha." Alex embraced her friends.

"Good to have you back. Now, I'll prepare the medicine for you." Grace said and took the first ingredients.

A few minutes later, Grace had prepared an ointment. She began to apply it to Alex's arms. Immediately Alex felt a cooling effect. "Ah, that's better."

"It will still take a few days until the blush is gone." Grace explained.

"Err.., I better go outside while you apply the ointment." Max said.

"I'll come with you." Martha said. Both left the room.

About 15 minutes later, Alex had applied the ointment and Max could return. "I feel much better now. Thank you for rescuing me."

"That's what friends are for." Grace said. "That leaves only one question: What shall we do with Svetlana? Thanks to her, she nearly turned me into a genie. I'd like to make her pay."

"Me too!" said Alex.
"Me too!" said Max. "How about we transform her into something nasty, for good?"

"I'd like that idea!" Grace gave Max a kiss.

"I agree that Svetlana should be punished. But she wouldn't learn anything if we transformed her."

"Good point. I think I have the right punishment for her." Alex said, and blinked.

Svetlana was cleaning up her room. The mirror of her vanity was cracked, many objects had been scattered over the floor. Also, her bed suffered from the fight. The pillow was hit by a magic burst and had exploded into a cloud of feathers. All in all, her room was a mess. Svetlana didn't dare to summon Gregorios after what had happened earlier. Suddenly, she felt an itch on her forearms. Purple dots appeared and rapidly grew. It didn't take long until her complete arms had turned purple. The color continued to spread and eventually, Svetlana had completely turned purple. Svetlana screamed.

"I simply gave Svetlana the same allergic reaction I am suffering from." Alex explained. "Grace, you said it will disappear eventually, even if not treated."

"Yeah, but it will take much longer than for you, since I treated you with the ointment. And I won't give the ointment to her." Grace replied.

"Fair enough!" Alex said. "She will have to call in sick for a few days and can't go into public. For me, that's punishment enough." All her friends agreed. It was indeed karmic payback.

Early the next morning, Grace, Max and Alex checked out. It was 6 o'clock in the morning. Martha had just started her shift. "Good morning, Martha. We are checking out."

"No problem. Your key cards, please." Martha said. "And here are your passports." She gave the documents back to them. "Are you alright? Won't you be late?"

"It's ten in the evening now in Arizona. That's no problem. We'll teleport to my place and then, Max and Alex will return to their families immediately." Grace explained.

"Did you take the empty lamp with you?" Martha asked.

"Yes, I did. Maybe Casey can neutralize it. Or if not, we will keep it safe." Grace explained.

"Good. Alex, are you feeling better?" Martha asked.

"Yeah, I feel much better now. I think the blush has weakened a bit already." Then Alex turned to her friends. "Is everybody ready?"

Max took Grace's hand. "We're ready. Farewell, Martha!"
"Goodbye, Martha" said Grace and Alex.

Alex blinked. She and her friends disappeared from the lobby.

Something tells me that Svetlana was let off the hook very easily.
hippo2 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
Yeah. For what she did until now, she got out very easily. But I still need her for the big finally and then it's time to settle accounts once and for all.
