Modern MagicWhat if Cinderella ditched the prince’s ball and sent her fairy godmother to find love in her place?

Excerpt:

Esmeralda hovered lower and caught a whiff of cinnamon and baking bread and sighed. Food was one of the things she envied about humans. So many choices and such wonderful aromas. A few times, she’d tried to deviate from her diet of honey and flower nectars but regretted it, retching for days afterward. Lowering down, she paused outside a bakery with its doors open, and the smells wafting from inside made her place a hand over her stomach.

She closed her eyes briefly, indulging in the mouthwatering scents. Transforming into human-size, she wondered if just a nibble or a lick of icing would make her bemoan it later. She kept her invisibility shield up, debating, when a solid weight suddenly smacked into her back, and she crumbled to the ground. Her shield shattered.

“Oooaf. Sorry about that,” a man in a baker’s apron said. “I didn’t see you there.” A tray full of cinnamon rolls and muffins had spilled out onto the street. “Are you okay?” The man rose and offered her a hand.

“Y-you can see me?” she asked, her voice squeaking.

“Well, now I can.” Icing clung to his apron and other stains were smeared across the front. Most of the stains appeared newly made. She’d made a mess of his food.

“Sorry. I can fix this.” Where was her wand? She glanced around. It had pierced a muffin.

“A little early for a costume party.” He bent down and returned the salvageable muffins— the ones that hadn’t landed face down on the sidewalk— to the tray.
