when presented with a tiny brass shoe

by Eli Skipp

cameron has got gilded beaded shoes from british-occupied india and sometimes he wears them. cameron is an odd one. cameron will be an odd one even after he gets to high school. he'll keep writing zombie stories which will eventually get him into pratt and at some point gibson will give him a guitar for painting a mural of winston churchill playing a guitar on the underground and it won't matter because he plays the bagpipes, and not the guitar.

cameron will eventually end up over six feet tall and unable to fit the indian shoes.
