The Desert Flower - Mahogany SilverRain

SORCERY. REVENGE. An all powerful genie in an itty bitty living space.

Jabaar grew up in the palace of the Sultan Ibrahim and Sultana Abijah, who is Ethiopian. Jabaar's mother, A'dab, was the royal midwife and Jabaar would accompany her to help deliver the babies and to learn the healing arts of magic. His father, however, thought it would make Jabaar "too soft" and he feared Jabaar might become a eunuch in the Sultan's harem.

However, in the harem, Jabaar meets the Sultan's eldest daughter, Aaliyah. When Sultana Abijah gives birth to a stillborn son, the only male heir, the Sultan blames A'dab, and sentenced her to death.

Feeling guilty about the midwife, the Sultan bestowed favors upon Jabaar and his father, becoming close to Jabaar. Jabaar became like a surrogate son to the Sultan and he learned everything a male heir would learn. He gave him the choice of exotic pets from his exotic zoo and Jabaar chose an African Gray Parrot and named him Ido, (ee-doo).

When Jabaar turned twenty-one, the Sultan made him the Royal Vizier, a job that was supposed to go to Jabaar's father, Jabir. Jabir plotted against Jabaar, but Ido found out and told Jabaar. He had his father put in the dungeon, never to be seen or heard from again.

Aaliyah and Jabaar stayed friends and that friendship grew into love. However, Jabaar still held a grudge against the Sultan, playing the long game with the ultimate goal of ruling the kingdom. So when the Sultan refused to let Jabaar marry Aaliyah, Jabaar resorted to dark magic. Locking the Sultan away after mesmerizing the palace guards and servants with the staff the Sultan gave him, Aaliyah refused to marry him. Heartbroken, he threatened to kill the Sultan if Aaliyah refused. She relented, but vowed to make his life hell.

Unfortunately for Jabaar, Aaliyah befriended a young orphan named Allasim, who had a genie. After Jabaar had Ido steal the genie's lamp, he used the genie to seize control of the kingdom. He tossed a bound Allasim into the ocean. However, the genie rescued Allasim and the Sultan. Allasim tricked Jabaar into making his final wish, to be all powerful. Genie granted his wish and turned him into a genie. The genie then threw the lamp far away into the Sudan desert where Jabaar meets the Eternal Witch, Celeste Dubois, and is offered a chance to change his destiny by rewriting his past.

Will Jabaar change his evil ways and win the heart of his desert flower?
