The Shoemaker and The Elves

Once upon a time, a Shoemaker lived with his wife behind his workshop. The Shoemaker was a good man, and he worked hard, but he was very poor. He did not have enough leather to make shoes. But if he did not make shoes, he and his wife would not have any food.

He had only enough leather to make one pair of shoes. He cut out the leather and then left it on the workbench. The Shoemaker was very tired, so he thought of making shoes in the morning.
