A Random Shoe

I found this shoe placed upright in the middle of a small park near a lake.

It was out of place.  It made me wonder.

Whose glittery shoe is this?

A girl who stayed too late at the prom?

A modern Cinderella?

Perfectly placed, it could be a prank.

Or, perhaps something sinister?

There was mud on the toe.

Was its mate in the lake?  Was the owner in the lake?

At the very least, the beginning of a short story?
