Rotten Day

by Allison Symes

The fairy godmother trashed her wand. It was the only thing to do.

It had been a bloody rotten day. None of her spells had worked properly. She’d only just stopped the cars in the village crashing when one of her charms had sped each of these new-fangled contraptions towards the nearest walls for reasons unknown to her.

She’d carried out the standard checks on her wand. No faults showing. Nor could she detect a curse on her (though she wouldn’t have been surprised if the car drivers had cursed her in that way humans had of thinking bad language would somehow make things better. They certainly had no impact on her).

The fairy godmother sighed and retrieved her wand. There was nothing for it.
If there was nothing wrong with the wand, she would have to take herself in for an MOT then!
