Banquet of Dreams

And on that day, the boy prepared a vegetarian banquet fit for kings. The animals and his favorite people all sat at the table together and dined slowly, savoring every delicious bite. There was much conversation about wings and far away places. The dragon told the funniest jokes, and the giraffe sang old jazz tunes while the ladybug danced on the rim of a tea cup.

The great hall was illuminated by the glow of fireflies that came to feast upon a garland of sugar cubes delicately strung between the old wood beams. The scent of finely milled hot cocoa filled the air. There was plenty of creamy butter for the warm slices of crusty bread with bits of apples and pecans baked inside. They ate and ate until there was nothing left to eat.

The boy, exhausted, fell fast asleep in his furry trousers and magic monkey shoes (along with his friend, rabbit) and dreamt of his dada's return.

And his mama cleaned up the kitchen.
