"In the midst of all that movement a stillness rose in him, and for a long beautiful moment everything else fell away—" (18.205).
This lovely moment is interrupted when Phyllis steps in, not to cut in, but to tell them that Anna is fighting with Irving in the alleyway; she found him drunk with another girl.
The Golem and the Jinni get there just as Irving slaps Anna. The Golem steps in, and beats the living Shmoop out of Irving.
The Jinni restrains the Golem before she can kill Irving, and to smooth things over, he tells Anna that a strange man hit her lover and ran away. He's all, Not a crazy golem with the strength of ten men, mmmkay?
And he takes the Golem away.
In the Syrian Desert, the Jinni and Fadwa talk about their vastly different lifestyles.
He thinks her life is boring, but she corrects him, saying, "We can't all live in glass palaces" (18.245).
The Jinni asks Fadwa to show him what a wedding is like, and he enters her dreams.
He gets carried away watching the wedding ceremony, which involves an ornate necklace.
When someone screams for Fadwa to wake up, he "rip[s] himself away" (18.270) from her dreams and flees into the dark, a feat which almost destroys him.
