Setting Things right - Part 4B by hippo2 Setting Things right - Part 4B by hippo2

Amelia doesn't intervene

"You already had your wishes, Jen."
"I won't be locked away into the lamp again."
"HA! You will see! Genie, I wish that my sister Jennifer was locked in the lamp again!"
"I wish Cindy would be locked in that lamp!"

Martha had enough of these two brats. They had already been fighting each other when she first met them. Having Jennifer locked away in the lamp seemed to have stopped the feud, but now it was back worse than before. Generously the girls had given Martha the golden opportunity to teach both of them a lesson. She blinked and granted their mutual wish.
Both Girls shrieked as Martha's magic washed over them. Their feet and legs turned to smoke. The magic changed their clothes to traditional Chinese dresses. Golden bracelets appeared on their forearms. The Lamp began to suck in its new inhabitants. Jennifer and Cindy screamed for help as they realized what was happening to them.
"Please! I don't want to get in there again! HELP!" Jennifer screamed. But it was too late. Mercyless, the lamp sucked the two girls in, turning them completely into genies in the process.

Amelia gave Martha a look of disapproval. "What that really necessary, Martha? Those two are still sharing the same room. But now, they have genie powers to fight each other."

"They have genie powers, yes." Martha confirmed. "But as genies they can't kill each other."

"They don't have to kill each other. With genie powers, they can still cause enough non-lethal havoc." Amelia objected.

"Inside their new home yes. But as bound genie slaves, they can only get out of the lamp when they are summoned. And only when they grant wishes, they have full access to their powers." Martha explained. When she saw Amelia's mouth popped open in total disbelieve, Martha quickly added: "Trust me, I know what I'm talking about."

Amelia stared at Martha for a second, then she went ballistic: "Arrghh! Martha you are obnoxious! Did you... did you really turn these kids into genie slaves?"

"Amelia, this is not the place to argue!"

"And why not?"

"Because in a few seconds their parents will enter the room." Martha said. Meanwhile, quick paces climbing a stair could be heard outside the girl's room.

"Oh, Scheiße!" Amelia said. "Quick Martha, teleport us out of here!"

Martha and Amelia appeared in a street not far away from the house Jennifer and Cindy live in. Amelia took a deep breath, as if she had just finished a sprint. "Did you really lock these girls away in the lamp as genie slaves?" Amelia accused Martha.

"Don't think of me I'm that cruel. They are semi-bound genies. They can leave their lamp for 12 hours. That should give them enough freedom to lead a perfectly normal life." Martha defended herself.

"But they are still bound to grant wishes right?"

"Yes, they are. But above all, they have to learn to share a very small room together." Martha said.

"Still, I'm not happy with the thought of the two girls being genie slaves. Well, I could force you to free them but..." Amelia rather thought aloud.

Martha decided to let that remark drop. "If it makes you feel better: Their parents can always use their wishes to turn them back."

"Whatever..." Amelia said in a disappointed tone. "Who's the next victim on your list?"

Kind of necromancy now, but it always bugged me - why their clothes turned Chinese? Did I miss something?

What do you mean with necromancy?

About the clothes: The girls are chinese-american. And Martha decided to emphazise their heritage.
