Tuesday Tiny Tale #19

He used to be restless at night. Pain made it hard for him to sleep for several hours straight. Finally, after weeks of treatment and surgery, he was able to get rest. At first he would be able sleep a couple hours at a time. Then he could spend the whole night in bed without stirring. Now he could be out for the whole night and not wake up until noon, understandably. You could tell he was dreaming because he’d have a slight smile and would wake up clear-eyed despite the rest of his body. Last night he smiled. It must have been a really good dream. So good he wouldn’t wake up at all.
