Written for the Alphabet Drabble Meme. 100 words exactly.
Prompt: Genie, Lost, Miles
Requested by: [livejournal.com profile] kawaiispinel


When Miles was nine, a woman named Antonique told him a story about Scheherazade, married to a powerful king who wanted her dead, and how she stayed alive by telling stories, night after night, always ending on cliffhangers. Antonique told him one of Scheherazade's stories: the story of Aladdin and the djinn of the magic lamp.

Miles listened quietly. Antonique was tall and beautiful and had been dead for four years.

At nineteen, he researched One Thousand and One Nights and discovered Aladdin had actually been added in later by a French translator.

He didn't believe in fairy tales, anyway.
