And on a bright afternoon, Portia’s assistant discovers that something essential has disappeared, threatening not just the magical within the store, but throughout the world.

The crafting of this world in such a short tale is breathtaking. I feel like I know the version of our world Portia is living in, and I love Fiona. All cat, all pride, all lion queen.
