A Leprechaun's Treasure ~ Conclusion
Miss Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3?
But Rhoddy didn't run away, in fact he ran right toward Pargonous, clawing and biting up her leg.
Pargonous let out a fierce scream. "You! You got away from me once Prince, but you will not do it again."
"Save your threats, witch," snarled Rhoddy. "Today is the day you will die."
"What's going on?" yelled March. "Who is the Prince? Is someone else here? Please, help Rhoddy!"
The confused March, felt her way along the wall as the fight between squirrel and witch raged on around her. Pargonous let out a yelp as Rhoddy continued to bit and claw at her. March could feel the hot flashes of spells not hitting their target around her. She may be strong, but Rhoddy was quick.
Finally, March's hands fell upon the object she was looking for, the Aquamarine Clover. She held it tight in her arms. "Please," she said to the clover. "Help me see again."
Within seconds March's eyesight came back. She whirled around just in time to see Pargonous pointed her wand at Rhoddy, who was stuck solidly under her foot.
March held up the clover. "May all her evil deeds, be undone."
Pargonous screamed, "Nooooo!" as Rhoddy, the squirrel, transformed into a strong young man in tattered clothes holding a sword. The new bulk of the "squirrel" threw Pargonous off balance, giving the new human Rhoddy the chance to deliver a death blow to the evil witch.
"Rhoddy?" March baby stepped toward her friend. "Is that you?"
The man turned around. "Yes, March, it is me. Pargonous turned me into a squirrel five years ago. The Aquamarine Clover has turned me right again."
Hearing the voice of her friend, March ran to him and gave him a big hug. "I'm so happy you're okay. I was so afraid when I couldn't see. All I wanted to do was help you."
Rhoddy smiled. "You did my fair March, you broke every curse that witch ever made. You are a hero." He gave her a quick wink. "How's that for adventure?"
"So who are you?" March asked.
"I am King Roderick of the Leprechauns, your highness." He did a low bow causing March to giggle before doing a small curtsy.
"Then you must return to your throne. Your people are worried, they have expressed their concerns to my father," said March a sad smile on her face.
"I will return, but hopefully not alone," said Rhoddy.
March gave him a quizzical look. "I don't understand."
"I was on my way to visit with your father when Pargonous turned me into a squirrel. I was looking for a wife, someone to share my kingdom with me," explained Rhoddy. "And I think I've found her."
He grabbed March's hands. "Will you be this leprechaun's treasure?"
March answered his question with a kiss.
