Using the Lamp

Joe frowns as he glances across at the lamp and then the Ring. It is certainly true that it might be more sensible to head for the ring first but he is somewhat worried that Raelin will awake before then. Whilst he is not exactly trusting of the Genie, particularly in his current state of mind, he decides to opt for the lamp first.

It is relatively simple to reach the lamp - certainly easier than a struggle up the table as it is directly on the ground. In the space of a minute Joe has reached the lamp and moves in front of it. He does not however rub it straight away - he has come to terms with the fact that Jasmine is proving a crafty Genie who he knows he must defeat through witful wishing if he is to have any chance of getting exactly what he wants. Instead, he runs through in his mind the exact wish which should hopefully prove his success as Sultan.

His wish formed in his mind, Joe smirks as he rubs the lamp carefully, being aware that his Genie will be somewhat larger than he is at a mere four inches, glad to note that Raelin is still sound asleep - besides at present no one else in his harem is aware of anything being amiss within his authority, and with his final wish he intends to keep it that way.

Sure enough, the full-sized Jasmine emerges from the lamp. Joe is indeed stunned at her beauty, and were she not such a crafty character he might be more enhamoured with her, but he has more important matters to consider. As Jasmine glances about her eyes come to rest on Joe and a sly smirk covers her face.

"Well, if it isn't the little Sultan. Having size problems?" Her giggling is louder and more deep than Joe remembered at full size but he vows not to be scared of anyone, not now. "So then, what can I do for you, then? Are you ready for your final wish?"

Joe glares slightly, wanting to say more than a couple of angry words regarding her stupid size ring but keeps his cool. "Yes, I have a final wish. I wish that..."

Your choices:

  1. "...nothing can harm or kill me."
  2. "...I can change size mentally, only through my own direction."
