Lincoln's Nightmare and Comfort {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}

(Lincoln walks up to an abandoned house)

Lincoln: Hello. Is anybody home? Hello.

(Lincoln walks inside the house and doesn’t hear a sound)

Lincoln: Guess nobody has lived there for decades.

(Lincoln sees a shadow crawling across the old wood floor)

Lincoln: Uh. hello.

(Lincoln slowly tiptoes away from the shadow, but he bumps into a zombie gorilla)

Lincoln: Uh-oh. I think I should get out of this place.

(Lincoln sees a mutated beast with the head of a warthog and the body of a tiger)

Lincoln: >scream< I definitely never wanna be at this house again.

(The three creatures chase after Lincoln until he escapes the house)

Lincoln: Whew. Not one scary creature outside here.

(Unluckilly, Lincoln sees another mutated beast, but with the head of a lion and the body of an alligator)

Lincoln: Yikes. I spoke too soon.

(The creepy shadow, the zombie gorilla, and the two mutated monsters surround Lincoln)

Lincoln: THIS IS THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Scene cuts to reality)

Lincoln: I don’t wanna die. I don’t wanna die. I don’t wanna die.

(The door opens and a shadow with three eyes walks inside the room)

Lincoln: Another beast? I’m doomed forever.

(Lori turns on the light)

Lori: Lincoln. Are you okay?

Lincoln: I-I don’t know. I just had a bad dream.

Leni: Oh no. What was it about?

Lincoln: I know it’s absurd, but I dreamed that four scary things were after me and they tried to eat me.

Luna: Oh my man. That was scary.

Leni: Oh Linky. Things like that would never happen in real life.

Lori: (whispering) Shh sh sh. It’s alright Lincoln. Nightmares don’t come true.

(Lori strokes Lincoln’s white hair)

Leni: Only happy dreams come true.

Luna: Bro. Will a lullaby help you?

Lincoln: Yes.

(Luna pulls out her acoustic guitar)

Luna: (singing voice)

Good night

Looks like we made it through the day

The moon sighs

And I know that we're okay

Sleep tight

I love to watch you drift away

I would come with you but on my knees I'll stay

Good night

Five little fingers holding mine

Take flight

Into your dreams and lullabies

There's nothing more that I can do

But just fall more in love with you

And ask the angel armies to stand by

When I leave the room

I'm gonna fail you

I already have

Ten thousand times

I will fall down flat

You'll have a seat in the front row

Of everything I don't know

And all I'm trying to be

You'll see

Good night

There will be storms that we come through

In time

We will slay dragons me and you

I'll always wanna hold you tight

Keep you safe with all my might

So I will leave Jesus next to you

When I leave the room

And you will run ahead

As if you know the way

And I will pray more

Then one should have to pray

There will be words we can't take back

Silences too

And I'll be on my knees

You'll see

One night

When I am old and unsteady

You'll want me to fight

But I'll tell you that I'm ready

When there's nothing left to do

I will still be loving you

Then you'll fold your fingers into mine

And I will let Jesus hold you tight

When I leave the room.

Luna: Good night bro.

Leni: Good night Linky.

(Lori stays in Lincoln’s room and hugs him)

Lincoln: Thanks Lori.

Lori: You’re welcome.

(Lori climbs into Lincoln’s bed)

Lori: Good night Lincoln.

Lincoln: Good night Lori.

(Lori and Lincoln fall asleep)
