He floated up to eye level with me, frowning as he cocked his head to one side.

"Because you've filled your contract. That means you're free to go, so I assume you're going."

"I dunno," he said. "That wasn't much of a spell."

"I'll ... uh ... have to think about it."

"Sure. Back in the alley. You used a spell to sober me up before I had to fight those goons. To my thinking, that fulfills your contract."

The Djin stroked his beard thoughtfully.

"Well, I guess it's time for us to head back to the hotel... right Skeeve?" Kalvin chimed in.

"I'll ... uh ... have to think about it."

"Glad to help. It was less dangerous than trying to lend a hand in the fight."

"Well it worked. I'm impressed. If you hadn't done your thing back there in the alley, my goose would have been cooked before J.R. hit the scene."

"Even with backing I'd want to start small and build.Figuring that...yeah. I think about five thousand in gold would start things off right."

"No?" the Djin echoed. "So where are we going instead?"

"You never promised much," I insisted. "As a matter of fact, you went to great lengths to impress me with how little you could do."

"Sure. Back in the alley. You used a spell to sober me up before I had to fight those goons. To my thinking, that fulfills your contract."

"I don't get it. Why should I go back to Djinger?"

"Maybe, but by my count it still squares things between us. You promised one round of minor help, and delivered it at a key moment. That's all your contract called for...and more."

"Check me on this, Skeeve," he said finally, "I've been helpful to you so far, right?"

"I dunno," he said. "That wasn't much of a spell."

"Right," I nodded, wondering what he was leading up to.

"And I've been pretty good company, haven't I? I mean, I do tend to run off at the mouth a bit, but overall you haven't seemed to mind having me around."

"Well it worked. I'm impressed. If you hadn't done your thing back there in the alley, my goose would have been cooked before J.R. hit the scene."

"Oh," I said, intelligently. I wasn't about to question his figures, but the start-up cost was higher than I had expected. I only had a couple thousand with me, and most of that was going to cover Edvick's services and the hotel bill. So much for a grand gesture

"And I've been pretty good company, haven't I? I mean, I do tend to run off at the mouth a bit, but overall you haven't seemed to mind having me around."

The Djin stroked his beard thoughtfully.

"Oh, that," Kalvin waved his hand deprecatingly."That's just the standard line of banter we feed to the customers. It keeps them from expecting too much of a Djin.You'd be amazed at some of the things folks expect us to do. If we can keep their expectations low, then they're easier to impress when we strut our stuff."
