Well, we've made it to the last possible day of the month to do it, so I guess we should get back to The Dream Kingdom, huh?
Because I'm pretty sure I'm going to need four lines of prose tomorrow night.
If I can get caught up on June's comments in the next two weeks, I'll aim to get July's entry in our yearlong adventure up around the 15th. That's the current goal, anyway.
First day back at work went well. Calm before the storm, I suppose.
"A magic carpet, huh?" Dylan watched as first Josh and then Nystor clambered on. "I guess that makes you Jasmine, right?"
"Yup." Olivia nodded happily. "Pretty sure that makes the old guy here the genie."
"I'll leave it up to you two to decide who's Aladdin and who's the monkey," Olivia continued without seeming to notice Nystor's confusion.
"Abu." Dylan said before exchanging uncomfortable looks with Josh. "Anyway. Is this really safer than riding horses? What if one of us falls off or we crash into something?"
"You worry too much - always have." Olivia smiled and then continued before Dylan could question this assessment. "Get on already - we're wasting time."
"Sure, why not?" Dylan muttered as he joined the others on the hovering carpet. "What's the worst that could happen?"
"I would advise you to not think about that too much," Nystor said as the carpet began to move.
"What?" Dylan, Josh, and Olivia said in startled unison.
"The power of imagination," Nystor said with a hint of a smile playing about his lips, "can be just as detrimental as it can be beneficial. So let's all think happy thoughts as we fly through the air at a high rate of speed, yes?"
