This week's Friday Fictioneers photo prompt helped me to write a story about Leprechaun Paddy who is still trying to solve the problem of retrieving his Pot of Gold from the human, Batty Patty.

‘A distraction?’ said McSpud, adjusting his tall green hat.
‘Ye, a distraction,’ said Paddy. ‘The human nutjob, Batty Patty, still has my Pot of Gold. I want you to create a distraction while I nip into her kitchen and grab my Pot.’
McSpud saluted Paddy with his tankard of poitin. ‘Sure, I’m your man, Paddy.’
‘Good. Meet me in her garden at sunset.’
Paddy arrived in Batty Patty’s garden. But where was McSpud? Paddy heard rustling in Patty’s shrubbery. An apparition emerged. Paddy fell backwards.
The apparition chuckled.
‘I’m after thinking a scarecrow will make a grand distraction.’
