Turn the Statue into a human

"How's her mind?" Amelia asked.

"She's fine. And she regrets what she did. I think we can turn her back. She even specified her wish." Martha reported.

"She specified her wish?"

"Yes. She said: I want to move and talk again, like humans do. I also want my body to be complete." Martha quoted Lorraine.

"That's good to hear. And she's clever enough to make sure you won't leave her without arms, you sneaky genie." Amelia tried to add a hint of irony to her last sentence. Then she continued in a serious voice. "Grant that wish, Martha. Grant it."

First, Martha thought Amelia was insulting her. But then, she understood the irony. "Wish granted. She blinked and the copy of the Venus of Milo turned back into the human Lorraine.

"Free! I'm free again!" Lorraine embraced Martha. "Thank you very much!"

Martha smiled back. "I guess you learned your lesson?"

Lorraine nodded. "Listen, Martha, I know what I did to Donan was horrible. And I got what I deserved. But I'm glad you didn't leave me as a statue forever."

Martha nodded. "And what are your plans now?"

Lorraine shrugged. "I don't know. But I'd like to do something useful as a compensation for what I did. Since Donan is a kid now, maybe I can do something with kids? How is he anyway?"

"Sounds good. I placed Donan in a good family. He should be cute boy of three years now. But you shouldn't try to seek him. That would not be right." Martha said.

"I understand you. I will stay away from him." Lorrain embraced Martha again. "Thank you very much." Then she did the same with Amelia. "Thank you to you too." Eventually, she walked way.

When Lorraine had disappeared, Amelia turned to Martha. "I'd say that was a great success. Being locked away inside the statue really seemed to have reformed her."

"It seems so. You can never be sure, of course, but Lorraine appears honest to me." Martha replied.

"I know. I'm just thinking... genie magic could be useful in the penal system... But I guess there is no legal basis for that..." Amelia thought aloud.

"Yeah, I already thought about using my powers as a law enforcer. Maybe I become a super hero?" Martha replied.

Amelia nodded. "I'm glad this is settled. Now I have to return and study. Martha, if you may teleport us back?"

Martha nodded. "Of course." She blinked and both teleported away.
