Once there was a gnome running through the woods, then he saw a rainbow and decided to explore. "Treasure to be found at the end of the light" is something that he thought as he ran with no blight. With speedy little legs he made it to the end, to see another little man with a cane in hand. Sitting atop a small throne next to a bag "aye you found me lad!" Real treasure! The Gnome thought with a wicked grin "I want that gold in hand!" The little man was a leprechaun no doubt, and with a shake of his finger he said: "take my throne and you can have all this without a doubt!" The Gnome's face lit up with joy "yes please let me take your seat!" The Gnome says smiling with glee. "Aye lad, of course". The leprechaun says and he lifts from his seat. The Gnome Hops upon his throne with happiness and vigor. "All this wealth is mine now right?" He asks the leprechaun with a smile. "Of course laddy but there just a wee little thing, you are now bound to the throne and can never spend your wealth, you must always sit at the end of a rainbow until another takes your spot." The Gnome's face turns pale and sad, "But this cannot be, I'm to be so lonely?" The leprechaun sets a hat with a clover and cane in front, "yes lad your greed was too much, to easy to use and now I am free to roam the woods once again woohoo!" So the Gnome is now the leprechaun sitting upon his throne, never to leave unless another takes his place at his new home, greedy little leprechaun don't forget your lesson, never have such selfish intentions!
