An Unusual Morning For A Shoemaker

by Aeopxie | Score: 4400

Sitting in my workshop. All alone. No one to talk to the lonely old shoemaker. I get up from my table and grab my skiing jacket. Why do I need a skiing jacket? Well for skiing, ofcourse.
Why did you think it was for? As I leave my workshop, Nancy, my nextdoor neighbor screams: "The baby was born!". As she approches me to explain, a miserable cleric passes by. "What up with him?" I ask. Nancy gestures with confusion. Something I noticed was that the cleric shirt didn't have buttons like it usually did.  The mayor and his respectful bodyguard start approaching us, "Civilization has come to an end!" the mayor says as he is visibly panicking. The bodyguard, Edward, hands me a packet of seeds. "What's this for?" I ask. "Make sure to keep this with you just in case the cleric approaches you tomorrow." Ok, I will, I say to Edward. Emma's sister, my mature shop assistant, approaches me.
