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

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

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

The Djin stroked his beard thoughtfully.

"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."

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

"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."

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

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

"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."

"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."

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

"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."

The Djin stroked his beard thoughtfully.

"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."

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
