A while back The Mayor woke in the middle of the night screaming.
K went to The Mayor's room to check on him and found him stirring restlessly between sleep and wakefulness.
"Are you okay, Mayor?" K asked.
"I had a scary dream, Daddy" The Mayor said.
"Hmmm," K thought. "You know what I can do? I can put a special necklace around your neck to protect you."
"Okay," The Mayor agreed.
K fastened the invisible protection around The Mayor's neck.
"This necklace is made entirely out of my love and it will keep you safe from bad dreams," K told The Mayor. "They won't bother you now. Go back to sleep, my sweet boy."
The Mayor closed his eyes and didn't wake again until morning.
Last night, K tucked The Mayor in to bed and, as he was leaving the room, he said,
"Sweet dreams, Mayor."
"Dad?" The Mayor called after him.
"Yes, Mayor?" K said leaning back into the room.
"I've still got my necklace on."
When K told me this story I asked him to fasten one around my neck too.
We're all wearing them now.
