In a timeless Parisien street there is a little shoemaker called Damon Salvatore. On the streets of Paris stands Mr. Salvatore’s shoemaker shop. He makes and sells a special kind of shoes and his business is good.

However, the little shoemaker’s life is about to change…sadly, Mr. Salvatore’s life making beautiful shoes is disturbed! A most peculiar street Mr. Deville pulls up outside of his shop. When a new shoe seller is in town, Mr. Salvatore will do anything to gain business. 

His routine is altered by a trickster peddler who wants control of Mr. Salvatore shoemaker shop, making a direct rivalry with its own shop. “Who do you think you are?” screamed Mr. Salvatore, as Andrew deville tried to steal his customer. “I am just trying to sell shoes,” said Mr. Deville.

Since that day, everything has changed, “Mr. Deville soon started to steal all my customers and my business started to fail”, said Mr. Salvatore. “How will I cope?” said Damon. In his mind, he thought, maybe I will get some help from those I believe in.

Due to Damon’s situation, the benefits of the shop slow down little by little, arriving at a point when Mr. Salvatore says “It’s time to think about renouncing the shop and firm the sales contract of the peddler”. But his lovely shoes have a plan. They have a mind of their own!

The shoes make Mr. Salvatore create his best piece of man made shoe ever designed. After 12 hours, 20 minutes and 47 seconds, or some could say 10000 years later. Mr. Damon Salvatore proudly announced that his shoes, no masterpiece, were done. 

They were a light olive-brown to dark yellow, or a moderate, strong to vivid yellow. Golden, metallic, and shiny they were, clicked together as they look like something to wear to a wedding. Shiny and glossy every and any word that you could think of would still not describe it, because of how good it looked.

The next day, Mr Salvatore walked up to Mr Deville, or Andrew as people had known him, and gave him the letter which was handing over the title of the building. The cause of this was he was tired after all that issues in loss of business and money problems.

But his shoes had a different plan for him after giving him the letter, Mr. Deville screamed with excitement. After that, Damon also handed him the shoe box with the shoes that he spent all that time on in his little shop.

The pair of shoes match the hook of his cane, yet no one knew why he alway had a cane, but still it gave the outfit a finishing touch. Suddenly…the shoes started to do stuff to him as soon as they touched his feet.

It was like he didn’t have any control over his body, it made him dance along the road as if on air and soon he perished in the light. Mr. Salvatore was so happy that he was gone that he yelled to himself “My nightmares are gone, gone I tell you!”

The letter he had given to Mr. Deville came flying back to him, which landed on his face. Then Mr. Salvatore made the best decision of his life. He grabbed the paper and ripped it up, that paper was to hand over the title of the building to Mr. Deville, but now he was gone so there was no need for the paper.

The Power Of Friendship

One marvelous day I was sitting at home with my friend Harmony. It was a very boring day when we were playing with my dog outside, which we love so much but we didn’t want a dog so we were thinking about selling her, but we couldn’t decide if we should sell her because we loved her so much. Anyways this is my amazing dog, her name is Rose, she is a beautiful dog and she likes dressing up in the amazing dog clothes I buy for her. Rose enjoys playing ball, but she doesn’t like playing in mud, it’s her worst enemy. Later on after a lot of arguing and talk we decided that we were going to sell her. After we decided that we went looking for someone that would like to buy her and someone that would love the way we do. We went from one person to the next, we went to our friends house, We even asked some strangers when we were walking. After that we decided to go home because we had no luck.

On our way home we met a nice lady that looked like she would love and look after Rose very well. She said that she loved Rose and she had a beautiful name. The old woman also liked how Rose dresses, how she acts and how soft her fur was. She also really likes Rose because she doesn’t play in the mud and still feels like many other dogs, but a bit more special. The lady we sold Rose to didn’t have any money, so instead she gave us a flower and told us that it would grow a fairy. Later on when we were home, Harmony said to me “I think she’s lying don’t you”, and I said “I didn’t even believe her for one second”. I went to the bin with the flower and suddenly Harmony grabbed me and begged me to let her grow the flower in the garden, finally I said yes.

We graded the flower and planted it in our garden, but by the time we finished up it was dark so we went to bed. Harmony was really excited and happy about the flower, but I don’t know what she got interested about it, because if she wanted a flower that badly then why didn’t she tell me, I could’ve just bought one at the store for her. The next day when I woke up in the morning, Harmony dragged me outside to see the flower. When me and Harmony checked on our flower that was said to be magical, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I rubbed my eyes and looked angin, it was so big, just then I realized that it wasn’t any ordinary flower, it was magical alright. 

It was a giant flower which had a little tiny thing sitting on it and I really did think I was imagining it all. The little tiny thing sitting on the flower was actually real. I felt like I was just in some fairy tales that my parents used to tell me when I was little, but I guess not, I guess fairies are real and we’ve never known. I always thought fairy were just in stores that our parents read to us to put us to sleep at night. She was asleep but she was very tiny. The fairy was the size of my and Harmony pinkie finger. 

A few days passed and the fairy got older and older, and soon she was the same size as us. The fairy also got mean and mean and she was a very rich fairy, she always showed off her money and her designer clothes but she never would share. She never would be nice and she would always steal people’s food and take everybody’s things and she wasn’t scared of anyone.

One day me and Harmony decided that we were tired of her games and it was time to take her down, so we made a plan to climb the giant flower. The next day we spent all our time thinking about our plan, and when night fell, our plan went into action. Me and Harmony packed our bags and started climbing the flower. Finally when we reached the top we saw a giant Kingdom, which is where the fairy lived. We decided to take back everything she took from us and everybody else and give it back to the villages. 

After that we went to the castle door and crawled underneath the door to check if the fairy was there. The fairy was sitting on the couch watching television. We sneakily went behind the couch to check if she was distracted, which she was. Then we sneaked to her magical cupboard which keeps all of the things she took from us but it needed a key. So we went and looked all around the kingdom and we found a key but it was on a bench by her cat, so we stacked on each other and we climbed up but we had to be careful not to wake the cat up. 

After we got the key and jumped back down, we quietly went and opened the door we sneaked in. We got some of the things but we didn’t have time to get all of it because we couldn’t hold all of it. We threw it all down and then we had a few more things that we threw down. We did it again and again and again until we got everything we needed but halfway through the fairy attacked us she was shooting powerful fireballs at us. Lucky she missed every time or we would have been crushed into tiny pieces. 

I wonder how we even got away with that but at least we got all the things. We quickly climbed down the flower and cut the flower down, then we grabbed everything and took it inside and went to sleep. The next morning we woke up and got really, then we put everything in the taxes and drove all around the village and gave everyone’s things back to them, and at the end of the day everyone was happy.

And for the people that are wondering after the flower that we cut down last night, we don’t know where it went because this morning when we woke up, the flower we cut down was gone, me and Harmony think it disappeared because it isn’t any ordinary flower after all.

!The End!
