Cinderella’s fairy godmother knew someone was going to knock at the door seconds before it happened. That was one of the gifts that came with the job of being a fairy godmother. She answered to find a matronly looking woman with luminous white hair and a loving smile.

“Hi honey,” said the woman in greeting.

“Hello to you as well,” answered the fairy godmother. “What can I do for you?”

“My name is Esmeralda and I’m from the IIC of WW and FGMs”.

“The what?”

“The International Institutional Commission of Witches, Warlocks, and Fairy Godmothers concerning all aspects of spells, potions, charms, concoctions with magical properties and all other things magical,” replied Esmeralda. “I’m an inspector with the investigation arm of the organization representing the white division. You do know there is a white, good area of magic and a black division, the evil side of our business. I’m from the white division.”

“Uh, why are you here? Are you investigating me?” asked the Fairy Godmother.

“I’m here to make the preliminary inquiry into the Cinderella affair. You do realize there were mistakes made, don’t you?”
