The Elves And The Shoemaker Story - Chapter 1
Once, there lived a kind, but exceedingly poor shoemaker.
He was an honest, hard-working man, but he had fallen on hard times. So hard, in fact, that he could no longer make ends meet. All that remained in his workshop was enough leather to make a single pair of shoes.
In the light of the setting sun, he carefully cut out his last piece of fine leather and neatly laid it on his workbench, ready to finish his work the following day.
He closed the door of his workshop, let out a heavy sigh and returned home to be with his wife.
‘Take my hand, dear,’ he said. ‘Let us make a wish for our fortunes to change and for our years of hard work to finally bring us the ample reward that we deserve.’
His wife stretched out her arms, laid her hands softly into his and they made their wish.
The Elves And The Shoemaker Story - Chapter 2
The shoemaker rose early the following morning. As usual he ate his breakfast, brushed his teeth, gave his wife a kiss on the cheek and made his way to the workshop.
