When day bled into night, Jay's mother simply came into his room to wish him goodnight, but Jay was no happier than he had been when he woke up. How could they expect him to not use his imagination?
Goodnight, Jay! Sweet dreams!
But when Jay was finally swept away by sleep, he found himself in the most vivid dreams. He was a pirate on a ship, just as he'd imagined this morning. Only this time, there were no parents to stop him.
He was a beautiful princess flying above a palace on a magic carpet. He could be anything and anyone he wanted in his dreams, and no one could stop him.
Jay woke up in a much better mood than he had been when he fell asleep. Now, he knew that he could still have his imagination - his parents couldn't take it away from him. In real life, or in his dreams.
