Candle was tipped off that a store has some valuables and is unguarded. She decides to pick the lock and try her luck. She successfully breaks in and walks cautiously through the store. It does not seem like there is anything valuable out in the open, but she does see something on a higher shelf.
She wedges her foot on a small ledge in order to reach higher. Candle is startled as she hears someone coming, but cannot escape because her foot is stuck. As much as she struggles to get free, it becomes apparent that she has to remove her boot and abandon it. She unzips the boot and reveals her slightly sweaty and dirty sock.
Candle hobbles to hiding spot and looks down at her foot. She is disappointed to be in this predicament as well as being embarrassed to be in such a filthy sock.
Someone finds her abandoned boot and calls out to see if anyone is there. They don’t do a thorough search and take it downstairs to the lost and found. This is where the valuables are stored as well and Candle is going to get both her boots and some loot.
As she goes down the dirty stairs, she lifts her filthy soles up so she can try to keep them clean, but it is futile. She proceeds with her mission and finds the prize as well as her lost boot. Just as she is about to reach for it, she hears the man right as he grabs for her right foot. Candle struggles to get free in a game of tug of war, but he is too strong for her. Much to her chagrin, she decides to unzip the remaining boot so she can slip free from his grasp. Just when she gets it off her foot, it slings back at the man and seems to knock him out.
Candle grabs what she came for and reluctantly puts her soiled socks in her boots before rushing from the building. When she is a safe distance away, she sits down, removes her boots and inspects her socks. She cannot handle having such dirty socks and removes them leaving her with bare soles. It was a close call, but worth it!
