Buddy was sulking. Once again he was used to getting his own way and his mother was having none of it.
‘I told you, magic is not for youngsters like you who don’t understand the significance and responsibility. It is NOT a means to have an endless supply of sweets, chocolate and ice cream!’
‘But Mom!’ he whined. ‘I’ll be ten next year and Samantha has her wand already.’
‘Samantha is twelve Buddy, and you had your eighth birthday on Christmas Eve, so being ten is a long way off. Besides, you won’t even be considered for one until after your tenth birthday and then there are two years of training before you graduate.’
Mumbling under his breath, Buddy slunk off to his room.
He opened his favourite book and gazed at the picture with longing. Turning it ninety degrees, he envisioned it full of raspberry ripple ice cream with chocolate sprinkles and caramel sauce. He closed his eyes, mentally savouring the delight and licking his lips.
The room started to vibrate.
‘BUDDY!’ yelled his mother. ‘Stop that!!!’
His eyes snapped open.
Maybe he wouldn’t need a wand after all, he thought slyly.
