Aladdin Sane hovered just above. Brilliant red hair, naked silvery skin, and that unmistakable red-and-blue tattoo--he exuded tranquility.
He knelt by Zero's broken body, and placed his slender hands on Zero's chest. A light shimmered through the fallen battler. Zero stiffened up, and was a statue once more.
Aladdin looked at Celliers, and pointed to a wing lying in the street. Celliers got up and picked up the disembodied wing. He gave it to Aladdin, and the little genie reattached it.
Aladdin raised his hands to the sky, and the statue levetated off the ground. By magic, the statue was replaced at the Square center, on top of the Spider. The Spider set it's legs down flat on the ground, and there it stayed.
Major was in awe--he had never seen Aladdin this close before. He cautiously approached the genie, as if her were a precious butterfly about to fly away again. Celliers gently tapped Aladdin on the shiny shoulder, "Um....Mister Aladdin Sane...sir?"
Aladdin turned around. Celliers saw the look of anguish on his tattooed face. Opalescent tears fell from his red eyes.
Aladdin said, "Ziggy's children are in danger."
Celliers: "Yes, Zero told me that Zane and Dory are in trouble. Jareth hurt Zero pretty badly. And Major Tom and Tin are..."
"I must confront the Duke once more," Aladdin said somberly. "He is threatening the well-being of everyone in this realm."
Celliers: "Is Zero being punished again?"
Aladdin: "It is best for him to remain a statue. Otherwise, he would be a moving target for the Duke."
Celliers: "Berlin said that Zane and Dory had to release him. Major Tom was in trouble."
Aladdin nodded, "Their intentions were good--but they only compounded the problem. The Duke struck that tower deliberately--to kill Zero."
Celliers' face went red, "But it's not their fault! You can't blame them for trying to save a life."
Aladdin calmly said, "I'm not blaming anyone. It does not matter, anyway. The Duke has gone mad. He must be brought under control."
Celliers clasped his rifle, "Let me come with you to the Duke's! I can't let him hurt anyone else!"
"No," Aladdin said, "I will not put anyone else in jeopardy. Go home." With that, Aladdin began to float skyward, but Celliers grabbed his foot...
"You don't get it!" Celliers shouted. "We're ALREADY in jeopardy! We can't just sit idle, waiting to be blown to oblivion on some whim! No you can fly off, but I'm coming with you, whether you like it or not!"
Aladdin looked skyward, and thought silently, "Should I, Ziggy?" Aladdin mused for a few moments, then, "Follow me." Aladdin flew down the streets, as Celliers ran after....
Don't understand me, just love me
