"He was a tinkerer, an inventor of things large and small. The wood he gathered from the forest surrounding his secluded workshop, and the metal he collected from scavenging trips to town. Using his brilliant and possibly tormented mind, he toiled the seasons away making truly remarkable creations.
One result of his effort was a perpetual loneliness. Not normally one to succumb to his emotions, the years slowly softened his isolated heart and he pined for a companion. He addressed this the same as he addressed any problem - he set out to physically create a solution.
With calloused hands and a fiery desire he cut and welded and sanded his materials. Dark walnut was used for its rich color, reminding him of a foreign princess. After some time a slender and elegant torso was placed upon long, symmetrical legs. The face was carved to resemble the one he saw each night when he slept - its striking features matched by a piercing gaze.
He adorned his new bride in flowing blue silk, a blue that the softest sky would be envious of. The dress rested perfectly on the curves he carefully crafted, contrasting brightly with the wood underneath. He moved her to the corner of his cabin and enclosed her with enormous horseshoes of mahogany and iron. Her fingers were chiseled to be permanently crossed, and without a single prayer offered to the heavens he invoked all the luck the universe had to offer that she would one day be given the breath of life. Though she never grew warm nor her skin soft, every day he smiled with satisfaction at her unwavering devotion to him.” -M.D. Walter
