“We scale the woodpile and climb through the window which will be left open for us?”

“Yes.”

“And you trust the servant?”

“Absolutely.”

“You have the floor plan?”

“Right here.” Shuffling paper sounded.

“This room you’ve circled, that’s where the gold is?”

“Yes.”

Billy rubbed his hands together. Finally. He had the plan to retrieve his stolen pot of gold and get his luck back. His pointed ears twitched as he leaned forward to hear more. He needed to know the time they were going in, so he could get in first.

The branch he clung to cracked.

Bad luck!

  1. From aliens to leprechauns! Perhaps he could offer to share with the gang?

    • I have a feeling Billy is not inclined to share his gold or his luck… if he gets it back 😊

  2. Oh no, poor Billie. Maybe he can hire someone to retrieve the pot for him. Fun story!

  3. His cracking plan went wrong! Nice one.

  4. He just run out of luck trying. Bad luck to have lost the pot of gold in the first place, I suspect he is going to have a number of falls before he finally finds his luck again.

    That elusive pot o’ gold strikes again. Staying just out of reach! 🙂 Good one!

  6. I was almost rooting for him… Not sure who’s the bad guy now! 😉

  7. It is so hard get things back. If it weren’t for bad luck, he’d have no luck at all. Well told, Laurie.

  8. Dear Laurie,

    No lucky leprechaun here. Poor Billy. Cute story.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  9. I’ve been laughing at a lot of stories today. Yours is no exception 🙂

  10. You get the gold star, Laurie. This one was too good. :>)
