By grounding him to his room without supper
By making him clean all the toilets
By making him cook all the meals

Transformed mermaids and mermen
Freed slaves from the South
Clean out the soiled straw and spread new straw in the pens
Remove the cobwebs that sprang up in the corners of the bookstore
Move the pets out of the house so he could clean the floors
Shift the fog that blocked the sun from shining on the garden

That they maintain the road to the corners of the property
That they pay taxes to the evil wizard each year
That they give the wizard Smallbone a large ham each year
So that he could reset the Sentries that were failing
So that he could re-establish the fish nets
So that he could remember where he put his magic tools
So that he could keep the boats from crashing on submerged rocks
A coyote pelt
A new truck
The Vincent motorcycle
A steak dinner

They could now leave Smallbone Cove if they wished.
They didn't have to maintain the Sentries any longer.
They had to send him a new apprentice each year.
They had to keep him supplied with fish and fruit.
