“It’s fine,” says Maya.
“Also the car. And the little puppy.” Clumso heaves a sigh and tries to lean on a column, misses, stumbles, and smashes a flower pot. “Oh no!”
“It’s fine,” Maya repeats.
“Clumso is so bad at this!” he sniffles, wiping his nose with one enormous, grubby hand. “Clumso never means to break things!”
“Intent isn’t magic,” says Maya, with the slightest strain in her voice.
“But MAGIC is!” shouts Madame Zaganza, bursting in with stars showering from her wand. “Correcto tremundis!”
And that fixes everything!
It’s all better!!
