Frida Aelfling and her siblings run the family's business in the bustling metropolis of New Galdir. Aelfwear provides not only an overnight couture shoemaking service, but imbue their wares with elf-magic and personalized glamours. They work inexplicably faster than most elves, though, and that makes them a target for unscrupulous corporate types who want to dissect and exploit their work.
One such was Morgan van Regering. To add insult to injury, his bride-to-be, Angelique Constantin is coming to Aelfwear for shoes for their lavish society engagement party. At first, she and Frida clash, but then they find common cause. Frida employs her elf shoe magic in making couture the fastidious Van Regering will hate, all while Angie turns her efforts to annoying him in every other way possible.
It could end up being a lucrative business proposition for Angie and Frida--with some love in the bargain, if Frida can stow the paranoia.
