Annie Leprechaun walked along the main street in the Village of Leprechauns. She saw the most beautiful dress in a dress shop window.
“I really want that dress,” said Annie to herself. “It is a beautiful shade of olive green and it would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.”
Annie went into the dress shop and tried it on. It fit her like a glove. It was perfect. However, Annie then saw the price tag. Unfortunately, it was too expensive for Annie to buy.
“Maybe Father will buy it for me,” said Annie. “I know he loves me.”
Annie went home and found Grand Old Leprechaun, her father, in the kitchen drinking a cup of tea.
“Father,” said Annie. “I saw the most beautiful dress downtown today. I don’t have the money to buy it. I was wondering if you would buy it for me.”
“I am sorry,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I am so swamped right now. St. Patrick’s Day is coming and I need to figure out how to get these pots of gold delivered to the ends of all rainbows.
“What if I helped you?” asked Annie. “Would you buy it for me then?”
“Yes,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I will buy you that dress if you help me.”
Annie worked very hard over the next few days, delivering pots of gold to rainbows all over the world. She had them all delivered in record time.
“I am so proud of you,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.
The day before St. Patrick’s Day, Grand Old Leprechaun bought Annie the dress she wanted.
“Oh Father!” cried Annie, happily. “Thank you so much!”
“You worked hard for it,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “You deserved it.”
“Thank you Father,” said Annie.
“By the way,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “That dress looks very nice on you!”
Annie gave her father a huge hug.
