With magic glittering everywhere, Astra stretched her arms, and a pair of
magical shackles formed around them, and opened. The lamp, on the other
hand, turned to dust.
"I'm free," Astra breathed, shocked. "I'm free!" She jumped onto Fred "Oh, that was so smart! Oh, Thank you! ThankyouThankyouThankyou!" Astra stopped, realized what she was doing, and took a step back.
"I'm sorry, I don't know what got into me, I..." but she stopped again, for Fred and Velus were staring at her strangely. "What's the matter? You're really are that shocked that a naked princess is that grateful of what you've just done?"
"It's, uh, I don't know how to tell you this, but... well let's begin with the fact that you haven't gone back to being naked."
"What do you mean?"
"Uh, it's not just that. Your calves are still...gone."
She looked at herself again, and noticed that where her calves should be was just a whisp of smoke.
"Can't you do something about that? It's freaking me out."
Astra tried to think of what she could do. She thought about how she missed her legs. She thought about her pedicured princess feet. She thought about the lovely shoes back at her palace and how they fit her feet so well. All of the sudden, the smoke was gone, her legs had reappared, and she was sporting those very shoes.
"Wow! How did you do that?"
"I guess there's still magic in me. You freed me from being a Slave of the Lamp, but didn't turn me back into a human."
"So you're like some soert of sorcerer now?"
"Looks like it."
"Talk about finding items that will come in handy! This should make slaying the dragon way easier!"
"Tell me about it. But I think we ought to try this new magic out first."
"Agreed. Hey, why don't you turn Velus back into a human? Think you can do it?"
