"Oh no!" Erica exclaimed when she walked into school. Everyone was wearing green. Well, everyone except her. She had forgotten it was St. Patrick's Day.

"No green? You get a pinch," Erica's best friend, Sarah, said to her as she walked up and pinched her.

"Ouch!" Erica shrieked. She knew this was going to be a horrible day if she didn't find some green fast.

Erica walked outside to look for a shamrock, but she didn't find anything. Erica sat down on the steps and started to cry. Suddenly, a leprechaun appeared.

"What's the matter, young Lassie?" he said.

"Why I'm a leprechaun and I'm here to cheer ye up on this St. Patty's Day," he replied.

"I forgot to wear green today," Erica said. "If I go in there, everyone will pinch me all day long!"

"No worries, lass. I'll help you with some green," the leprechaun replied.

Suddenly, a pot of gold appeared. "Let me just work my magic and you'll have plenty of green to wear," he said.

Erica watched as he worked his magic. He sprinkled some of the gold from the pot of gold. Then, he took off his hat and, from it, produced the most perfect shamrock she had ever seen.

"Here ya go lass," he said.

Erica thanked the leprechaun and headed back into school to enjoy her day pinch-free.
