He drew a ring from his finger and gave it to Aladdin, bidding him prosper.
This Aladdin refused to do until he was out of the cave.
He had picked out the foolish Aladdin for this purpose, intending to get the lamp and kill him afterwards.
For two days Aladdin remained in the dark, crying and lamenting.
She fainted away, but Aladdin, snatching the lamp, said boldly:
So they sat at breakfast till it was dinner-time, and Aladdin told his mother about the lamp.
When they had eaten all the genie had brought, Aladdin sold one of the silver plates, and so on till none were left.
One day Aladdin heard an order from the Sultan proclaimed that everyone was to stay at home and close his shutters while the princess, his daughter, went to and from the bath.
Now I pray you to forgive not me alone, but my son Aladdin.
Breathless, she ran and told Aladdin, who was overwhelmed at first, but presently bethought him of the lamp.
Whereupon the genie took the vizir's son out of bed, leaving Aladdin with the princess.
Fear nothing," Aladdin said to her; "you are my wife, promised to me by your unjust father, and no harm shall come to you.
The princess was too frightened to speak, and passed the most miserable night of her life, while Aladdin lay down beside her and slept soundly.
When the three months were over, Aladdin sent his mother to remind the Sultan of his promise.
The mother of Aladdin bowed low and went home, thinking all was lost.
