“That’s it!” she announced, with a sharp, serious tone. ‘Athena, bed!’
As Kira reached out her arms, Athena quickly buried herself under her dad’s arm.
“Athena, now please, you must go to bed!”
Kira dragged her from her hiding-place, and cuddled her. As she hid her face in Kira’s neck, Kira reassured her:
“You know it’s past your bed-time,” said Kira in a soft tone. “It’s so important you settle into a deep and relaxing sleep before Dream Time.”
“You worry too much,” Daniel tried to give reassurance to Kira. “Our Princess will fall asleep within seconds — she always does.” He stood up, and put both his arms around Kira and Athena, and squeezed them tight. “Anyway, no Dream Catcher will take my girl’s dreams, not while I’m around.”
