QLeft.png The genie of the lamp in "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp." Has the power to grant up to three wishes of those who rub the lamp. QRight.png


If You Had Three Wishes

Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Hey, everyone, look.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
What is it, Mahiru-chan?


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
I was straightening up the storage room when I came across this.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
An old lamp?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Do you suppose it's a prop our senpais used in a play?


Karen (icon).png Karen:
It looks like a magic lamp! You know, like the kind you rub and out pops a genie!


Karen (icon).png Karen:
O Genie of the Lamp, grant me a wish!


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Just kidding! But what a shock it would be if one really did come out.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
*whoosh


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I am the Genie of the Lamp, and I shall grant you one wish--whatever your heart desires.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Whoa, Tendo-san!?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
A genie really came out.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Can I really wish for anything, Genie of the Lamp?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Of course, Mahiru Tsuyuzaki-san. I shall grant you one wish.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Okay, then, I want an unlimited pass to the aquarium--one that everyone could use!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Very well, your wish shall be granted.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Now, then, Aijo-san, I shall grant your wish.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Okay, I want to go on vacation overseas! The only question is, where? ...I know, Italy!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
All right, I'll be looking forward to a souvenir from Italy. My magic will transport you there. *whoosh*


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Wow! I'm already in Italy! Heh heh, what shall I eat first?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
You there, stop. Let me see your passport.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
Hikari-chan's playing a police officer.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
But...! I don't have a passport!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
You should think it through before you make a wish.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Ooh, that was a learning experience...


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Now, then, Kagura-san, I shall grant you your wish.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
My dream already came true, so I'll give my wish to Karen.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Thanks, Hikari-chan! This time, maybe I'll try France.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Oh. No, wait.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
This wish should go to the one who has made the dreams of countless people come true.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
I'm talking about the Genie of the Lamp, of course!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Oh...


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Aijo-san... How very kind you are.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Very well, allow me to grant myself one wish.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
It's almost time for a show I want to go see, so could I ask you to finish cleaning for me?


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Of course! Goodbye, Genie of the Lamp! Thank you for making our dreams come true. I hope you'll be happy!


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Thank you, kindly mortals. Farewell.


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Tendo-san left.


Mahiru (icon).png Mahiru:
So, should we continue cleaning?


Karen (icon).png Karen:
Um, I guess so. She made a wish with the magic lamp, after all.

A Supernatural Role

Maya (icon).png Maya:
"Master, your wish is my command."


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Oh, there you are. I've been looking all over for you, Tendo-han.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
What can I do for you, Hanayagi-san?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Sorry to disturb you. It looks like you were in the middle of practicing.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
But that comical performance you were doing doesn't seem at all like you. What role was that?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I thought I'd try playing the Genie of the Lamp. You know, the one from the musical we saw the other day.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I thought that might be it by the way you were moving.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Yes, that genie's performance was funny. I really enjoyed it.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
However it was also tinged with sadness at times--the sadness of an immortal.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
A complex inner psyche hidden beneath a comical exterior. I'm trying to express that paradoxical juxtaposition--


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Stop right there. I have no idea what you're talking about.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
...But why the Genie of the Lamp?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
I thought there was something I could learn from the genie's performance.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
It was so good that I wanted to try incorporating what I could into my own acting.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I'm impressed you'd go that far. I mean, we're not even performing Aladdin.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Who knows? We might someday, and even if we don't, it's a learning experience.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
For instance, the Genie of the Lamp was all alone until Aladdin found him.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Don't you think this experience would help with future roles that deal with solitude?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Oh, is that how it works? You put a lot of thought into this, don't you?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Personally, I'd pass on living in a lamp. I mean, you're stuck in there all alone 'til someone summons you.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
That's true. It could be quite lonely being a supernatural being like that.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Yeah, even ogres, wizards, and other roles like that don't pop up in the middle of town.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I mean, if they did show up in the middle of a daytime crowd, it would be pretty odd.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Whether in the East or the West, it seems supernatural beings are cast as solitary characters.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Hey, I just had a silly thought.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Do tell.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Supernatural beings are like superstars.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
How so?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
'Cause when you're a superstar, it's lonely at the top. You're a star, too, Tendo-han, so you must know what it's like.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Heh heh, that's clever.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Heh. Of course.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
Anyway, why were you looking for me?


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Oh, right. I almost forgot the whole reason I came here.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
One of my grandmother's students was visiting Tokyo on a sightseeing trip, and brought a bunch of yatsuhashi from Kyoto.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I thought I'd share some with you, Tendo-han.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
But it looks like you're busy practicing some complicated, highfalutin concepts, so I'll go enjoy them with the others.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I bet they'll be gobbled up in no time.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
No, I couldn't possibly pass up another tasty treat from Kyoto.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Ah, yes, that ravenous appetite you keep hidden.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
If you mean I have a hungry spirit, I'll take it as a compliment.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Hee hee, you're pretty good with words, too, Tendo-han.

Maya (icon).png Maya:
I was thinking about going to see "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp" again. I'm leaving right now, but would you care to join me?

Maya (icon).png Maya:
I've seen "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp" twice now, so I was able to focus more on the acting and backdrops the second time.


Maya (icon).png Maya:
You really do need to see good shows more than once, wouldn't you agree?


Maya (icon).png Maya:
You're hungry? Heh heh, then let's go discuss the show while we eat.
