  • Chapter 9: How I found a pot of Gold

    “Oh puh-leeeze don’t do another history lessonnnnnnnn!” I groaned. “But I have a new book on it, and it has even more amazing facts!!!” Gale complained hilariously. I didn’t want a history lesson, but I also didn’t want to hurt Gale’s feelings. I weighed my two options, and then I realized that Gale was going…

  • Chapter 8: Naming the cubs!!!!!

    The mother lion did want me to name her and her cubs! First, I got to know each one, to find out what name would suit them. The shy one who had stayed in the cave for a while, the really beautiful one, I thought the name Taylor would suit her best. Once Taylor came…

  • Chapter 7: The Feastings and Festivities begin!

    I offered to cook the fish and catch more. The lions accepted the offer gratefully. Me and Gale collected some firewood for the fire. Since Gale didn’t know how to start a fire, I had to start it with a rock and a stick. Turns out not only my legs are fast and strong, because…

  • Explosives T-Shirt

    I listen to a lot of pod casts on my drive to and from work.  One of the podcasts I listen to is Writing Excuses.  At the end of each episode they usually provide a writing prompt.  I don’t usually do anything with the writing prompts, but this was early in the podcast seasons and…

  • Chapter 6: The Confrontation

    I heard a loud, deep growling. It was shaking the Earth like a Sokrokatata shaking its prey. The creature prowled towards me and Gale. I heard its footsteps. Or should I say pawsteps?! I was about to scream as loud as I could, but Gale slapped his hand across my mouth before I could. I…

  • Chapter 5: The Big Scare

    I slowed to a halt. Gale had caught up to me and we were both breathing heavily. “Why are we here!?!?!?!!” Gale exclaimed frantically. “Why are you here? You didn’t have to follow me, you dork!” I said, exasperated. “You’re my friend, you idiot! I still care about you! I’m not going to let you…

  • Chapter 4: New Companion

    Well, now I have to rest. I’m exhausted. On my way, I see Gale. “Hey Georgie!” He said. “Where are you going? Where’s everyone else?” “Hey Gale” I say, running over to him. “I don’t know where everyone else is either…” Gale seems worried. “Do you think we’re the last leprechaun kids left in Lepcania?”…

  • Chapter 3: On the Way

    I was feeling down. I didn’t see the rainbow yet. To tell the truth, I was scared. I just kept on walking and hoped I wouldn’t die. Little surprises would probably come, like the poop-spitting clovers, wild, ferocious animals, and leprechaun traps. I wanted to make my family proud though. I could just hear them…

  • How I Found a Pot of Gold: Chapter 2: Not Normal Stuff

    When I woke up the next morning, I was like, yo? Anyone there? Not normal stuff for me. Nobody was home. Nobody was answering my calls. I didn’t know if they were coming back. Don’t be silly. But still! They’re coming back soon! Weren’t they? I was home alone the entire day. I ate ice…

  • How I Found a Pot of Gold: Chapter One: A Poopish Day

    I was walking along the road when suddenly a clover popped out at me and pooped on my face. I really hate it when that happens. Bit nasty if you ask me. Unless humans think differently. Then it’s delightful? Really not the most delightful and happy thing to me, especially if you’ve had a bad…
