Little Green Men
By Kathleen Redman (Questions By Shannon Jackson)
  

1     Sean rolled over and moaned. He had spent the night sleeping on the cold, damp ground with nothing but a pile of leaves for a bed. "I knew those stories were nothing but the foolishness of an old man," he sighed. "Grandfather O'Shaughnessy is a good man, but he believes all the old legends. I guess that's what happens when you get old."
 
2     Sean was the first in his family to attend college. He had traveled all the way to London to study at Cambridge. Now he was back in Ireland, staying with his grandparents for the holidays. Night after night he had listened to his grandfather tell tales about the little people-the leprechauns. Sean knew there were no leprechauns, but his grandfather insisted they were real. Last night he had gotten tired of the stories.
 
3     "Grandfather," he said, "you may believe in little men in green pants with green jackets and red shoes, but you are old. I have been to college, and I know that leprechauns only live in legends. They are not real."
