Once upon a time, a cobbler lived in a village not too far from where you are now. He was quite skilled at his craft; in fact, there was one year where he even outsold a quite renowned cobbler a few villages over. This was thanks in part to a beautiful new pair of shoes he constructed that same year, and they were truly the talk of the townsfolk. “The best in all the land!” the people sang. One evening, there was a grand ball in the biggest village, and all the fair maidens (and gentlemen too) wore these shoes. The night was simply superb until a stroke of bad luck made it so a large number of the shoes spontaneously burst into flame.
