The Elves and the Shoemaker


Once upon a time there was a Shoemaker who was very honest and worked hard. Still he couldn't earn enough money to get by. Finally all he had was just enough leather to make one more pair of shoes. He cut out the leather and decided to make them in the morning. When he got up in the morning, there stood the shoes all ready to be sold. Every night the Shoemaker cut out the shoes, and every morning they were made and ready to be sold. One night the Shoemaker said, "I just have to know who is doing this! It must be elves or my name isn't Charles Hefenbacher!" So he stayed up all night and hid behind a curtain. Suddenly he saw two elves. They were working on his leather! Their clothes were shabby and old. That morning the Shoemaker made them new shoes and his wife made them clothes. They laid the clothes out and watched. The elves came, saw the new clothes, and gratefully put them on. Then they skipped away never to be seen again. The Shoemaker and his wife lived happily ever after.


The End


This was one of the longer stories that she has written, it was single spaced and the final draft was written in cursive and took up an entire page. She either cursive writes or types her final drafts. Typing is still a work in progress though, so she will usually type shorter ones. We haven't been shown KWO in WT1 yet, so this is coming from memory and 'dressed up' a bit with her own personality.
