The Talented Shepherd
A fair maiden disliked seeing the village shepherd’s skinny frame, ragged clothing and lumpy skin, and avoided him whenever possible. Then one day, she walked by his house and heard music of such beauty she was enchanted. She followed the music only to discover the shepherd, hunched at a piano and eliciting gorgeous sounds with confident strength, showing a mastery and skill that struck her to her core. From then on, no longer was he beneath her attention - she fairly threw herself at him, finding herself oddly attracted to what she had first spurned.
Talent is sexy.
