The Little Guy And His Jinnie Chapter 49

The Little Guy And His Jinnie
Chapter 49

Jake had been watching as all the sneak attacks he'd planned had started to reduce the numbers of Qistina's army. Then, they had all vanished, appearing not far outside the palace. Then, to his amazement, she lost far more than he'd planned. Out of the over ten thousand she'd started, she only had about five thousand left.

Shaking his head, Jake knew they had a better chance, but with that many, she still had numbers on her side. He'd hoped that the collapsing ground trick would have taken more. Well, at least she was down to half; now, they wouldn't die as quickly.

Shaking his head as he watched as Qistina was screaming out orders. Jake was wracking his brains for another trick that would even things up. A sudden idea hit him as he rushed to the council and the royal family to see if it was possible. With the army as close as it was, it wouldn't be long before a full-on battle ensued.

After the council and the royal family assured him it was, Jake instructed them what he needed; he just hoped this would even things out more. The palace army was damn good; Jake just doubted they could defeat a hundred evil Jinns against each of them at the same time.

Qistina was going back and forth between her lines of Jinns. With this many, there was no way that she could lose! The palace was as good as theirs. She would so enjoy the sounds of the ever-last master screaming as she tortured him over and over. It made her tremble the more she thought of it!

A sudden commotion near the front of the palace gates drew her attention. What in the hell was going on? Looking out, she saw that the ever-last master was walking out of the gates alone!? A wicked smile came to her lips, and then she stopped short as she was about to rush up and kill him. Narrowing her eyes, something wasn't right. This had to be a trap. Looking around, she spotted Tankena, "Tankena! To redeem yourself. Kill that insolent human!"

Tankena looked out to see Jake, then he looked at his ex-leader. "No!" He quietly said.

Qistina's eyes narrowed, "Did you just tell me no? I said kill him, NOW!"

Tankena Shook his head as he took hold of the slave bracelet around his wrist. Grunting, he breathed a sigh of relief when it snapped off. "I said NO!" Tankena shouted this time as he snapped the other bracelet off. "I am free of you. You may kill me, but I will die battling you, not bowing to your worthless feet!" Swinging his arm at Qistina, she gasped as the blast caught her by surprise, knocking her flat on her ass.

Springing back up, her mouth dropped open as she saw that Tankena had vanished! "I will kill you, Takena!"

Good luck with that, you backstabbing bitch! You aren't even worth the effort to fight, let alone bed! What the king ever saw in you is beyond me.
As was the fact that I followed you, oh! That's right, you had to enslave me. Goodbye bitch! Die well! Tankena's thoughts came, followed by an almost insane laugh.

Jake watched with great interest as he felt almost half of the ex-queen's power drop. Man, was she ever pissed off! Smiling, Jake thought this was getting better and better! Turning her hot gaze upon Jake, she ordered several hundred of her Jinn soldiers to attack and kill him. Damn, Jake thought, I hope this works!

As they approached, Jake saw they had no idea what they were walking into. About twenty feet from Jake, they all started to pop like a balloon. Smiling, Jake nodded. It had been as he thought. "Gee, you evil bitch!" Jake yelled across the distance. "Guess they don't make stick men like they used to!"

Jake felt his body lift off the ground as he rushed toward Qistina's army. Cutting a path through the center of them forty feet wide, they hadn't even tried to get out of the way as they all burst as soon as Jake passed near. After reaching the back of the group, the army finally started to get out of the way as quickly as possible. Jake thought that would be another thousand if they were lucky.

Suddenly, Jake thought they might get another try when he heard the ex-queen scream. Shit! Jake thought he'd have more time! Alright, let's get back. Jake thought as he started to fade and then hit the sand. Damn it! He'd not moved fast enough!

"So the weak human thought he could defeat the all-powerful leader!" Qistina shouted as she advanced upon Jake, "You are about to learn what real pain is..." Qistina had started. Jake watched the whole time as she went, then fell as if she'd run smack into a wall! Jake thought as he laughed harder; she had!

Standing up, she put her hand out, trying to push in toward Jake. "You have no power; you are a pitiful human, yet I can feel more layers of protection around you than I ever have. I can feel all four. No, wait, five? Six or ten Jinns are extending their power around you. I have never felt power like this. It does not matter if the dark magic is far too strong! Soon, you will be another slave of mine to use before I decide it is time for you to die!"

Jake smiled, and then a worried look came over his features. "I suggest that you not do that. The last one who used the dark magic against this didn't fare well. You see, it can't do a thing against love."

"You dare to tell me what to do!? Love? There is no such thing! I will so enjoy your screams when the males use you over and over!" Qistina was almost screaming.

"Like I said, you should know everything before you do that. The last who used a spell of dark magic against all those protecting me had the power turn against them." Jake warned the ex-queen.

"I don't need any warning from a weak, pitiful... thing like you. I have mastered the dark magic; nothing can harm me, though you, on the other hand, only have a short time before you die!" Qistina hissed at him.

"Huh, and here I thought you were far smarter than that. Oh well, it's your funeral." Jake told her as she started to chant intensely.

About fifteen minutes later, a dark bolt of energy shot out of Qistina, hitting about twenty feet from Jake, then bouncing off and destroying a few hundred of her troops. "WHAT!? I have to increase the power!" Qistina shouted at Jake.

" I think you should stop before you have no one left." Jake quietly told her.

"Shut up human! I know what I am doing!" Qistina snapped back at Jake as she started to chant even harder. Again, a bolt of dark energy somewhat stronger bounced off something around Jake, taking out a few hundred more of her troops!

Nuha flew up suddenly. "Leader, stop. We are losing far too many troops!" Qistina waved a hand at Nuha, knocking her out of the air. There was a sudden shouting as Abla and Fatin both attacked Qistina simultaneously. Smirking, she waved her hand again as both were flat on the sand, having been almost punched out of the air.

"This isn't what you said we were going to do!" Nuha said as she and her sisters vanished.

"Come back, you traitors! You owe me! I will kill all three of you for this betrayal!" Qistina shouted at the empty air.

As your old second said. Goodbye bitch! Die well! Then, a trio of laughs occurred as two bracelets dropped on the sand before her.

"Fine!" Qistina shouted in the air. "After I kill and gut the human, all four of you are next! You shall learn the price of betrayal to the leader!"

Turning back to Jake, she was shocked to find him gone! Reaching out, she felt no trace of him at all! Then she got a feeling of him behind her! Swinging that way, she released a titanic amount of energy toward Jake.

Swallowing hard, Jake watched helplessly as the vast energy bolt rushed toward him. I'm sorry that I failed; I don't think all of you can stop this. I love all of you, my sweet Jinns. Jake thought as he heard all of them cry out.
Fear not, Father! All of you, our mothers, put all you have into it, all your power, all your love. Jake heard more than a few thoughts say as he felt an even more significant amount of energy surrounding him.

Qistina was laughing. Nothing could survive the amount of energy she'd released, NOTHING! Her laugh could be heard across the sand as the bolt of energy bore down on Jake. I believe in all of you. I believe in all the love we share. I know love cannot be defeated! Jake thought back as the bolt hit before Jake, then hesitated.

Qistina laughed harder, "Nothing can stop it, NOTHING!" Suddenly, her laughs died off as she watched the considerable bolt reverse direction! "NO! I will not be denied! NO! This is my time! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!"  Was the last thing anyone heard as the considerable bolt swept over Qistina and the rest of her army. Moments later, the smoke and dust cleared. The sand was wiped clean of any trace of the ex-Queen and her army.

The Jinns came flooding out of the palace, looking at the empty desert. Empty! Gen and the others began to look for Jake frantically. He was gone! That was impossible. If he were gone, they would be also!

Rushing back toward the palace, Gen noticed, just for a second, a portal closing. Shaking her head, she thought nothing of it. Al-Mazhab himself was at a loss as he was also looking for Jake.

Jake awoke with the worst headache he'd ever had. Hell, this was as bad as that time... It had just been on the tip of his brain. What in the hell was going on? A tall, lanky man with sandy hair walked in a moment later.

"Damn, Jake!" The man said when he saw that Jake was awake. "You scared me to death! Stretched out on my lawn like that!"

Jake looked at the man. Something about the man seemed so familiar. "Uh...." Jake started. "I don't mean to be rude, but who are you?"

The tall man blinked, then did a double take. "You don't recognize me?" Jake shook his head no. "I'm Tom Sinclair. We used to work together. I must say, I'm sorry I never jumped in to help you. I wanted to, but I was afraid I'd end up near dead if I did. I have to help my mom so I can't get hurt."

"So you were my friend?" Jake asked as something tickled at the back of his mind.

"Kind of, you didn't seem to have many. I tried, though you seemed to like your privacy. By the way, what happened? Last I saw, you were with this hot-looking woman and..." Tommy stopped when he saw that Jake had grabbed his head, looking to be in extreme pain. "Dude! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to bring up bad memories. Let's get you to the hospital fast!"

Jake nodded as Tommy helped him out to his car. Jake tried to make sense of everything on the way to this hospital. His name was Jake, that was for sure. Tommy was a friend who had found him on his lawn, hurt and unconscious. Beyond that, nothing was coming to him at all.

At the hospital, they began to run a complete battery of tests on him. He had amnesia, though how or what type had all the Doctor's scratching their heads. Had it not been for Tommy, Jake wouldn't know anything. As far as he was concerned, he knew he had to do everyday tasks, but his entire mind was wiped clean. The Doctors said there was no damage except for a small bump on the back of his head.

Throughout the week, Tommy came as often as he could. Other than him, though, no one came to claim him at all. Many around the hospital began to feel sorry for the man no one seemed to know or want.

Finally, on the last day he was to stay there, a call told Jake he had a visitor. Nodding, Jake said to send them up. A few minutes later, a rather portly woman with greying hair walked in. "Jake?" She said hesitantly. "Jake, honey, don't you recognize me?"

Jake looked at the woman and shook his head no. The woman nodded and seemed to say something to the air too low for Jake to understand. "Not to be rude, man," Jake started, "just who in the hell are you? How do you know me?"

The older woman's eyes blinked as she moved further into the room. "My god, it is true, total amnesia. You remember nothing?" The older woman asked.

"No, if it weren't for Tom, I wouldn't even know who I am. I don't know where I live, my family, my job, nothing!" Jake cried, starting to feel the frustration welling up in him. "I don't even know if I even have a family!"

A half smile crossed the older woman's face as she nodded as if to someone talking to her. "Why, my boy, I am your family! You and I are all that's left! I'm your mother, son." The older woman said hesitantly. "I... Lo...love you... s...s...son!" The woman said, almost choking on the words as they left her lips. Jake was so surprised that someone who knew him was there; he completely missed what the woman had said.

An hour later, the woman signed for Jake as they left the hospital. Tommy passed him as they were coming out of the building. "Jake?" Tommy asked when he saw Jake waiting for someone. "What are you doing out here?"

Jake said, smiling, "My mother is here to take me home with her."

"WHAT!? Since when? Jake, your mother died years ago!" Tommy said as Jake grabbed his head. A searing, agonizing pain shot through it. With a groan, Jake sunk to the pavement as several nurses ran to him, asking what was going on. After explaining, they took Jake back in.

"Damn it! Zahra, what the hell happened?" Marie was shouting as she was driving up to the hospital front.

"It appears he has had a relapse. I am sensing he now knows that his birth mother is dead and has been for years. I am still detecting no magic. No, Jinns, there is nothing in his mind except for his name, his friend's name, and now that his mother is dead." Zahra told Marie.

"Damn it! So damn close! We need to find another way to get him. He is the key to what has happened lately. It has to be something he has done. With the Jinn dimension closed, we have no way of knowing!" Driving off, a pair of eyes watched them depart.

Nyrae had been following Marie around as much as possible. Why had she been to the hospital, and just who was the older man who had collapsed in front of the building as she was about to drive up? Mother, I am afraid that I cannot feel father either. Have you been able to contact Akeesha or her mistress?

I have searched for them both; Akeesha's mistress seems hidden. I am lost, little one; I am so without your father. Nyrae thought.

I, too, am at a loss, Mother. I feel that something is about to happen that will either destroy or benefit both dimensions. Nyrae's child thought to her.

I hope so, little one, I hope so! Nyrae thought back.
