Biggles and the Genie in the Lamp

Have fun. Anything goes.

A deleted scene from Forms a Syndicate…

Biggles, Algy, Ginger, Bertie, and Dizzy stared at the treasure that Dizzy and Bertie had uncovered in the cavern.

“What’s this?” Ginger asked, stooping and picking up a brass oil lamp. “It looks just the sort of thing that Aladdin rubbed and brought out a genie.”

“You’ve been watching too many films,” Biggles teased, smiling. “But you’re right. It is just the sort of thing that would hold a genie. Here. Let me see it.”

Ginger passed it over. Biggles held it up to the light. It was a big smudged. He untucked the corner of his shirt and rubbed it.

Suddenly a loud wooshing sound filled the air and a loud, booming voice intoned “Who hath summoned me?”
'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Biggles blinked, checked with sideways glimpses that the others could also see it, then owned up.

'I appear to have inadvertently disturbed you. What happens next? Do I get three wishes?'
'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

The young blonde lady in the hareem pants etc straightened up from cringing at the disembodied voice and said 'Well that rather depends on what you want?'

Berties monocle dropped out and rolled across the floor.
'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Suddenly the blonde was joined by a redhead and a brunette, also dressed in diaphonous harem costumes. Biggles looked at Algy.

“To think a wish is to have it granted,” the blonde, obviously the leader, looked straight at Algy as she spoke.

'That is most unfair,' Algy said indignantly. 'I was only considering my options.'

The blonde genie frowned at him and then sighed. “I suggest in future, you do not use the word ‘wish’ when considering your options,” she admonished him. “It leads to so many misunderstandings. However, in this case, I am prepared to be lenient. It will not count towards your total of wishes.” She snapped her fingers and the brunette and redhead disappeared in a puff of smoke.

'Why are you considering his wishes when I rubbed the lamp?' Biggles said indignantly. 'Or do we all get three wishes? Or can we have more than that each? How does this wish business work?'

"Just a minute" piped up Ginger. "I'm not sure about this. If you get stuff without trying, well, it's not really worth much, is it?"

'The best things in life are free,' Algy suggested, winking at Biggles.

'But you can give them to the birds and bees,' sang Ginger.
The genie raised an eyebrow.
'Are you sure about that?'

“No, no,” Ginger said hastily, his mercenary side suddenly becoming uppermost.

Biggles played absently with the lamp as he thought. 'I'd like to take a rain check. I need to sit down and have a think about the possibilities so I get the wishes right. I don't want to end up in a Monkey's Paw scenario. Can we meet again tomorrow?'

The genie looked surp."Noone has ever asked me that before," she admitted. "But you will need to keep old of the lamp because you will need it to summon me again."'

Algy looked at the genie admiringly. 'How about joining us for dinner: pleasure not business?'

"No, I am sorry, but I cannot. Until tomorrow." And she clasped her hands in front of her, gave a little bow and disappeared in a puff of smoke.

Biggles turned to his friends. "Let's go back to the campsite and have a round-table conference. We could unleash some truly horrible things without meaning to, so let's think carefully about this."

'What's the problem with wishing for fabulous wealth?' Dizzy asked laughingly. 'Nice and straightforward. What could go wrong?'

"You could end up like Scrooge," Biggles told him. "A miserable old man with no friends and no life, only a pile of cold hard cash to keep you company."

'With my ability to spend the spondulicks?' Dizzy said incredulously. 'I could end up without a feather to fly with again, but a miser is so unlikely.'

Biggles shrugged. "It's up to you, but if you only get one wish make sure you're not stuck somewhere where you'll never be able to spend it."

Choosing what they wanted was reasonably straight forward, at least for the first wish. Wealth. After all, that was why they were there in the first place treasure hunting. It was how to phrase the request. Biggles fretted through different wordings while the others tried to find the flaws.
