#100WCGU – Wk68 – Prompt: They worked when I put them away – 107 words – “Sand”

15 Dec

They worked when I put them away. It was again time to take them out and see if all was well.

When in position, power was applied. I noticed one was barely glowing. Checking the records, I was on my way to the location.

Restless, a little person was moving uncomfortably in bed. I could see his dreams. They had turned to nightmares. This would not do. A sprinkle from the sack and nightmare turned to pleasant dream. He now slept comfortably.

This was my regional routine each night. The sandmen and sandwomen (there are many) only bring pleasant dreams. Our mission is to protect the young.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The idea came after seeing a recently released animated movie. 🙂
