Trickster took a walk down the road from his den. It was a very warm day. The sun was shining and the snow was starting to melt.
As Trickster walked, he saw something walking toward him. It was something very tiny and it looked to Trickster like it was dressed in green.
“Hello,” said the tiny being to Trickster when it got closer to him.
Suddenly, Trickster realized that the tiny being was a leprechaun. Then he realized that it must be St. Patrick’s Day.
“It is very nice to meet you,” said Trickster, shaking the leprechaun’s hand. “I have never met a leprechaun before.”
“I have never met a rabbit before,” said the leprechaun.
“We are furry and we love to eat carrots,” said Trickster.
“Carrots!” cried the leprechaun. “They have to be the worst vegetable ever.”
“Oh no!” exclaimed Trickster. “They are very tasty.”
Trickster and the leprechaun talked for a few more minutes but then Trickster heard his sister calling him.
“It was nice to meet you,” said Trickster, waving goodbye to the leprechaun.
“You as well,” said the leprechaun.
Trickster walked up to where his youngest sister, Isabella was. She was standing outside of the door.
“What did you want?” asked Trickster.
“Mother wants you to set the table for dinner,” said Isabella.
“Okay,” said Trickster.
Trickster set the table. Mother started bringing the food out from the kitchen.
“So, Trickster,” said Mother when she sat down. “What did you do today?”
“I almost forgot,” said Trickster excitedly. “I saw a leprechaun today.”
“Are you serious?” asked Isabella. “Today is St. Patrick’s Day but I don’t think I believe you.”
Trickster got up from the table and went outside. He saw the leprechaun up the road. He invited the leprechaun for dinner.
“Are you having carrots?” asked the leprechaun.
“We do have other things to eat besides carrots,” said Trickster.
The leprechaun went home with Trickster. Isabella’s jaw dropped when she saw him.
“You weren’t playing a trick on me,” said Isabella. “You really did see a leprechaun.”
The leprechaun enjoyed his meal of mashed potatoes and green beans. He was very happy to see that Mother didn’t serve him any carrots.
