Grant that wish in a "creative" way

"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."

Unfortunately, Martha didn't get the irony. "I'll show you what a sneaky genie can do!" she thought and blinked. "Your wish is granted."

Instantly, the statue began to move. "I can move! I can talk." Lorraine said. "But... Am I still a statue?"

"MARTHA! How dare you to twist my wish in such a horrible way?" Amelia scolded her friend.

Quickly, the statue raised her left arm to cover her nakedness. "That's not what I had in mind. Make me normal again. I wish, that you make me normal again." Lorraine wished in panic.

Martha was now furious. First, Amelia was insulting her as a sneaky genie, and now, she shouted at her. Since Lorraine had stated a wish, she would put both in their places. She was forced to grant that wish anyway. Martha snapped her fingers.

Instantly, Lorraine's expression change. "Why was I so upset again? I mean, I am a living statue, right? That's what I'm supposed to be, am I not?"

Amelia was horrified. "What did you do Martha?"

"I simply sped up the adaption process. Lorraine now completely thinks like a living statue." Martha explained.

Amelia slapped her hands in front of her eyes. "I didn't mean... nevermind! Can you fix it? Can you turn her back into the human she was?"

"I could transform her into a human, but then we would have a living stone statue in the body of a woman." Martha explained.

"Why would you want to turn me into a human?" The statue asked. "I'm perfectly happy that way. Please let me stay what I am."

Amelia rolled her eyes. She was sick of arguing with Martha when Martha was sticking out her genie side. Of course, she could force Martha to turn Lorraine back into a human with another wish - all she had to do was word it very carefully. But then, one little mistake in the wording and Martha would find another loophole. Probably, Loraine would end up as... Amelia couldn't even think what horrible fate Martha could impose on Loraine. Maybe the current situation was the lesser of two evils. If Lorraine actually liked being a statue, she could stay that way. All she needed was a place where a living statue wouldn't stick out...
Suddenly, Amelia remembered something. "Martha can you send her to that strange sleeping world? If I remember well, I saw some living statues there."

"There are other living statues? Yay! I'd love to see them." Lorraine was ecstatic.

"Your wish is granted." She blinked and Lorraine teleported away. "Now that this is settled, shall we return home?"

Amelia raised her finger. "Yes, but only because I promised you to help. Martha, I'm really angry with you. And we will have a word after this, is that clear? And now teleport us to the next victim."

On a Greek island, but in another dimension, suddenly a living statue appeared out of nowhere. A blond-haired woman in a skimpy golden-mesh outfit approached the statue first. "Greetings, I'm Babette, a priestess of Ishtar. Welcome to our world."

"Hello, my name is Lorraine. This genie Martha just teleported me here. Are there other living statues around?"

"There are. But we call your kind Caryatid Columns. If you like, I can introduce you to others ." Babette proposed.

"That would be nice. It's just... can you do something about my clothes?"

"Nothing could be easier." Babette smiled. She sank to her knees, raised the hands and prayed to Ishtar. The Babylonian goddess heard the prayers and changed Lorraine's outfit into a skimpy bikini. "There you go! And now, let's meet some other Caryatid Columns"

Lorraine smiled. She had the feeling that everything will turn out alright.

What do you think about the Kri-Kri-Taurs? They could be a typical wild-life taur for greece, like the Fallowtaurs are for Germany.

They look nice.
hippo2 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014
