Moving Up, by Jane Reid

Sue found the old folk tales about witches amusing. She didn’t ride a broom. At least, not often. She had better ways of dealing with people who got in her way.

There was that irritating man who seemed in line for a promotion she badly wanted. He came down with the worst case of salmonella his doctor had even seen. He was still on extended sick leave, and of course the company couldn’t wait that long to fill the position.

All it had required was a tiny molecular rearrangement of his lunch. Sue got a gratifyingly large pay raise.
