Parcie was achild who didn't want to go to sleep. Viveva in Scozia, in una casa di pietra ai confini del paese. La sera, quando fuori oramai era buio e faceva freddo, Parcie restava di fronte al camino, ascoltando le fiabe che raccontava la mamma e guardando il fuoco.

Quando era l’ora di andare a dormire la sua mamma diceva:
"Now it's time to go to bed, Parcie," but the little boy protested andhe invented a thousand games just to stay awake.

Una sera la mamma, stanca delle lamentele del bimbo, gli disse:
“Okay, Parcie. If you don't want to go upstairs to sleep, stay here. He will mean that you will wait for the leprechaun to arrive tonight. I'm going to bed.

Parcie guardò la mamma fare le scale per andare in camera. He didn't want to be alone, but he also didn't want to go upstairs to bed. So she stood and watched the fire which, slowly, made smaller and smaller flames and was about to go out... when the elf arrived.

“Hi, I'm Parcie, who are you? the boy asked.
“I am the elf. I come every night to clean the house when you are asleep.”

“I don't want to go to sleep! I'm not sleepy!" Parcie said
“I also don't want to do jobs! Let's play,” said the goblin, and they jumped around the fire. Parcie he wasn't tired, on the contrary, he wanted to jump and run more and more!

The elf and the boy jumped so much that their legs got tired. Meanwhile, however, the fire had gone out and it was starting to get cold.
“Parcie, I really have to start cleaning now. That's my job,” said the goblin.
"But I want to keep playing!" Parcie protested.

“Facciamo un patto”, disse il folletto. “Vediamoci tutte le sere, quando il fuoco sta per spegnersi e la tua mamma è di sopra. Balliamo fino a che il fuoco si spegne e ci salutiamo.
If you go to sleep now, I'll come back tomorrow evening to play with you".
“ Va bene”, accettò Parcie. “Io vado di sopra allora, ma tu non dire niente alla mamma”. “Stt, sta arrivando, nasconditi!” e il folletto si nascose.
La mamma era scesa un secondo per controllare il suo bimbo.

“Mamma, sono pronto, andiamo a dormire ora”.
“Bene, ne sono felice”, rispose la mamma. “Andiamo di sopra”.
Once in bed, Parcie fell asleep immediately, without fuss.

La sera dopo, chiese alla mamma di poter stare qualche minuto da solo accanto al fuoco. La mamma accettò. Il folletto giunse e, insieme, saltarono e corsero accanto al fuoco fino a vederlo spegnere.
“Mamma, sono pronto ora”, disse il bimbo, esince then he has not protested to go to sleep.
