“You know I don’t like to give away my pots of gold,” said Annie Leprechaun.
“But that is what I don’t understand,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, Annie’s Father. “Technically those aren’t your pots of gold. They belong to the whole leprechaun community.”
“I still don’t want to just give the pots of gold away though,” said Annie. “The people I give them to, they don’t deserve them. They are greedy and heartless once they get their grubby little hands on them.”
“Don’t you see,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “We want them to be greedy and heartless because that then takes the focus off us.”
“Is this all part of your plan to make the leprechauns look good compared to the humans?” asked Annie.
“You finally got it,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, happily. “That is precisely what I am trying to do. “We leprechauns have always been known as the evil ones. We have always had a bad rap. When something goes wrong, we are always to blame, even though we usually had nothing to do with the situation.”
“Thank you, Father,” said Annie Leprechaun, grabbing her jacket.
“You going somewhere?” asked Grand Old Leprechaun.
“I have pots of gold to give away,” said Annie.
“That is my girl,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, proudly.
