“Holy Hecate, she’s SUCH a show-off!” muttered Dianthus, with a roll of her eyes. “Well, you have to admit she’s got talent,” countered Maeva, her greenish hair standing on end. “Will you shut that thing OFF, please, before you suck me up into the next township?” But Amelia couldn’t hear either member of her coven, the motor on her Super Deluxe Electrolux was just too loud. In truth, it wasn’t a matter of showing off at all, but it was also true that no ordinary broom would do for Amelia Alabaster. Fascinated by all things mechanical and preternaturally obsessed with order, she had long ago parked the broom bestowed upon her by her mother in a seldom-used utility closet and had traded in her wand for a curvy little feather duster. With a clattering of gears and a mumbling of spells she had transformed an everyday Electrolux into a first rate aircraft, and had immediately begun buzzing around Glastonbury looking for messes to clean up. She had even fashioned a canister-type conveyance for her surly black companion, Tidy Tim. It occasionally coughed up a bit of kitty litter, but Amelia could dispatch that in a jiffy. Night after night, the full moon yawning behind her, Amelia would don her goggles, grab the handle of her vacuum and hold on tight as it roared into the night sky, yanking her off to the next domestic disaster, midtown mess or parochial pigsty. With a wriggle of her bottom and a flourish of her feather duster, order would be restored and all would be well. If the occasional crucial bit of paperwork or antique heirloom or cherished keepsake happened to get sucked up too, well, people generally didn’t even notice. So the next time you are frantically searching for something and making thinly veiled accusations in the direction of your children, family pet or significant other, give a thought to Amelia Alabaster and the Super Deluxe Electrolux. It probably isn’t their fault.

    Oh my YES! you are a treasure, my first impulse is to ask if I can have this printed on fabric, imagine some massive drapes hanging in my gorgeous soho loft ! LOVE IT :)

  • Hi Ena – thanks for your kind comments. I think you’d have to talk to Red Bubble about fabric printing – I know that won’t go thru my printer.

    Excellent work as usual Ms Cookie, and yet another unique backstory. I really don’t know how you make them all up! Have you considered a picture book of your work? Many thanks for your continued support of the Steampunk group.
