This time it was Nobunaga's turn to guard over the sleeping bairn, climbing up on the sofa after he had been carefully laid down to rest, and snuggling in together.
Withing moments the two are dreaming deep together, exploring the stars and the deeps, fearless and harmonious.
I can't remember much about my childhood, but I do remember dreaming often of being surrounded by spirits, crowding round as I slept. Glad he's here to protect the wain.
