EM-Drabbles – One Hundred & Nine

Hammar was, at seventy-three, the youngest man practicing his craft. It was technology, he would explain. No one wanted the old hand-made wares anymore except a few craft shops.

When one day some local teen broke in and stole all his tools, Hammar was set to retire. The police found the teenager and the tools, and made her apologise. They said she’d been trying to use the tools on her own.

Hammar looked at the lass and sighed. She was not the best apprentice in the world, but she wanted to learn and the craft would not now die out.
