#Fridayfictioneers: Distrust


There was just one shoe, abandoned, halfway in the gutter.  I picked it up, looked at it.

It was a nice shoe.  I didn’t know much about shoes but the leather felt soft and expensive and it looked carefully assembled.  I wondered if it’d been made by a cobbler. I’d never met a cobbler, but I liked the word.  I liked eating cobbler, too, but not the human kind.

I looked at the underside of the shoe.

LEFT, it said, in thick black marker writing.

It was a right shoe.

I put it back down and left it there.
