Once she approached the path surrounded by hundreds of mushrooms, Molly searched behind the large shrub where the leprechaun had first appeared. She found a suitable spot for digging and began to work.
Molly dug and dug and dug some more. She dug so deep that the top of her head could barely be seen when she stood inside the hole.
Dusk had begun to surround Molly when she finally stopped for a rest. It quickly became so dark and Molly became so tired that she felt as though she would be forced to stay in the hole all night -- and that kind of scared her.
