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

He turned and strode off down the street without looking back. It was silly to feel bad about not fulfilling an offer I didn't have to make, but I did.

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

I had botched the job with J. R., but I resolved that this one I was going to do right.

"That's the whole point, Kalvin. We aren't going anywhere. I'm going back to the hotel. You're going back to Djinger."

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

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

"Yeah. Sure. Well, you know where to find me when you make up your mind."

"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."

The Djin folded his arms and stared, frowning into the distance for several moments.

"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."

"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."

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

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

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

"So why are you trying to get rid of me?"

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

Suddenly, the whole day caught up with me. The well meant advice from the Butterfly, the drinking, the fight, the head-butting with the police all swelled within me until my mind and temper burst from the pressure.

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

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

"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 folded his arms and stared, frowning into the distance for several moments.
