The Elves and the Shoemaker
The poor shoemaker looks around his small, dark shop and sigh. We have no money to buy food, what are we going to do? How much leather do you have? Enough for one pair of shoes. The shoemaker takes up the leather then go to cut it.
At night, the shoemaker is cutting the red leather in the dark and small room. Can I cut the leather now? Yes, you can! She goes to the bed. The shoemaker is carefully cutting out the leather. Im very tired. Okay, I should leave it on the table first, and then go to the bed. The shoemaker goes to the bed.
In the next morning, the shoemaker wakes up and goes to the shop. Let me see……why the table has a pair of beautiful shoes? What happened? She comes into the shop and ask. Oh! Wife, come on! Can you see? It is a pair of beautiful shoes, but I dont know who make it. The shoemaker and his wife cant believe their eyes. The stitches are small and neat. It is too wonderful, even you cant make them. She says and puts it on the sale table.
Later that day, a rich lady comes into the shop. The shoes are very beautiful! I will take them. OK! Please wait for me. Then the shoemaker gives the beautiful shoes to the rich lady. At night, the shoemaker talks to his wife. We have money to buy food now. Now the shoemaker can buy more food and leather, and they are very happy.
Honey good morning, I find two pairs of beautiful shoes on the table. The shoemakers wife wakes up and runs to the shoemaker. What happen? There are two pairs of beautiful shoes on the table again. Well! Lets sell them!
After ten minutes, two brothers come into the shop. Do you have two pairs of shoes? Yes, I do. Just over there! The shoemaker takes two pairs of shoes to the brothers. They are so beautiful! We buy them both. I can buy leather for four pairs of shoes. Night after night, the leather becomes shoes. Now the shoemaker and his wife are very rich!
We are very rich but who is helping us. Lets hide under the table in the shop at night. At last, the shop door is opened and two tiny elves run in. Why do two tiny elves go to my shop? I like making shoes. Because your shop has many leather to make beautiful shoes. Thank you! Two tiny elves. But I see their clothes are very dirty and they dont have any shoes. I will make them some new ones. They are Christmas presents!
At night, two elves run into shoemakers dark shop. Come quickly! Ok. Im running, but Im fat, please wait for me. They run into the shop, then they look up. I see new clothes and shoes. The elves are excited, and they jump for joy. They never return to the shoemakers shop. But he and his wife never forget the kind elves.
