Tony came home from work, one evening.

"Hi, Jeannie, I'm home!"

She popped up and sailed into his arms, hugging and kissing him. "Hi, Master!"

He gently put her down. "There's something important I wanted to talk with you about. Sit down, please."

"All right, Master."

They both sat down.

"Now, I understand that after we get married you will lose your powers, is that right."

"Yes, it is, Master."

"Is there any way to get around that?"

"You mean so that I can keep my powers?"

"Right."

"You mean you want me to keep them?"

"Yes, I do, Jeannie."

"But Master, you always say that I get you into trouble, when I try to grant your wishes!"

"That is true; nevertheless, I want you to keep your powers, if you can."

They made her extatically happy. "Oh, Master, I love you so very much!"

They hugged and kissed.

After she calmed down a bit, she said, "But I do not know, Master…perhaps Haji can do it."

"Ok, call him."

"Yes, Master. Haji? Haji!"

He appeared. "Hello, my favorite daughter!" They hugged and kissed. "And, how are you?"

"Very well, thank you. There is something I must discuss with you."

She and Tony explained the situation to them.

"So, you would like your powers to remain after you get married, Jeannie?"

"Yes, Haji."

"And what about you?"

"I want whatever makes her happy," said Tony.

"Thou art truly a Prince among Princes! Yes, there is a way to accomplish this."

He blinked.


The three of them were transported to an oasis in the Sahara Desert. It had a small lake. The water was an unusual red color.

"This is Lake Andorra. You must bath in it, Jeannie."

"All right."

She took her slippers off and walked into the water. She settled herself in it. The water turned her clothes and skin red, alarming her.

"Do not worry, my daughter; the red will wash off, when you are finished." This calmed her. "Now, you must stay in the water for at least ten minutes. Oh, you should let it get into your hair, as well." She dunked her head in the water, then brought it out again. "Good."

Tony and Haji waited patiently, while she lied in the lake.

"You may come out, now."

She got up and walked out of the water.

"It is done; you will keep your powers, after the two of you get married."

"Oh, Master!"

She gave him a wet hug! "Jeannie!" he yelled out.

"Oh, I am sorry!"

"Here, let me help you," said Haji.

He blinked. Rain rained down on her, getting the red water off her clothes and skin. Then he blinked again, and she became dry.

"Let us go back, now," said Haji, and he blinked.


Once again, they were at Tony's house.

"Thank you so much, Haji!"

"You're welcome, my daughter." They hugged and kissed.

"Thank you, Haji," said Tony. Haji also hugged him.

"Am I invited to your wedding?" Haji asked.

"Front row seats!"

"Wonderful! Goodbye!"

He vanished.

"Thank you so much, darling Master!"

"Certainly, Jeannie."

Again, they hugged.

"Oh, no!" she said.

"What is it?"

"My shoes!"

She had left them at the lake! She started to blink, but he stopped her. "You can get another pair, Jeannie!"

"Yes, Master!"

She blinked, and another pair of slippers were on her feet.
