Synopsis for "It's Only Magic!"Edit
A boy pockets a boy from an occult book store that contains spells to summon a djinn. When he reads the incantation, a djinn appears but is so malevolent that it tells the boy anything he wishes for, he will grant in a way to torment him. So if he wishes for eternal life, the djinn will grant him eternal life in the flaming pits of hell. If he wishes for riches, he will find himself entombed with them forever. Afterward, he will destroy the whole human race so that he will not be bothered again. If he wishes for nothing, he will destroy the boy outright. The boy thinks furiously and wishes for time to be turned backward. The djinn protests, but grants the wish, and this time the boy walks away from the occult bookstore instead of pocketing the book.
