Leprechauns at the Amusement Park
By Beth Beutler
  

1     The Leprechauns were so excited. Today was they day they would be going to the Greenville Amusement Park. They did this every March on Saint Patrick's Day. They rented the entire park and joined hundreds of other leprechauns for a day of fun.
 
2     Marvin and Mabel were leprechauns that had known each other for over 20 years. They shared many of the same interests, including going to amusement parks. They had attended the Saint Patrick's Day celebration in Greenville almost every year for over ten years.
 
3     Marvin and Mabel sat down a week before the celebration and planned their day. They enjoyed most of the rides, so they always mapped out a way to get on as many as possible, riding some more than once.
 
4     "I think we should start with the Screaming Green Machine," Marvin suggested. (This was a brand new ride.)
 
5     "Ummm, that looks kind of dangerous," Mabel replied.
 
6     "So? Are you scared?" Marvin asked.
 
7     At first Mabel did not want to admit her fear. However, she answered honestly, "A little."
 
8     "Ahh, Mabel. You've always gone on these rides before!" Marvin countered.
 
9     "Yes, but this one looks even scarier than the Whip, and that one really bothered me."
