Drabble Challenge #101

Prompt: leg

Horror overtakes a young shoe salesman as a millipede walks into the store.

“I need to try on some shoes,” the millipede announces.

“Okay. What size do you take?”

“I believe it is a size four.”

“I'll have to go into the back and get some more. While I do, you can be putting these on,” the salesman says, as he hands a box of size four shoes to the millipede.

One box... Then two... Three... Four... Five... Ten... Twenty... Fifty... And finally one-hundred!

As the salesman drops with exhaustion, the millipede says, “I think I need a size five!”
