For anon…song is “Light in the Hallway” by Pentatonix. Ben is seven around this point and the “giant” is supposed to be Snoke.
Little Ben curled into a ball as his brows furrowed over his closed eyes. Sweat gave his skin a glow. He rolled over as his nightmare worsened. A few short moments later, he ripped his eyes open and called for his mother. A light soon spilled under his doorway from the hallway. It wasn’t long until Leia opened her son’s door. She quickly noticed her son’s shaken state as he gripped his covers. She gave him a soft smile as she made her way to his bed.
“What is it, dear?” she asked, smoothing her hand over his head.
The boy curled into her. “T-There was this an-angry giant. He was super scary and wouldn’t leave me alone.”
“It was just a dream, Ben,” she cooed, “The giant can’t hurt you.”
She rubbed his shoulder as she rocked him a bit. Leia placed a gentle kiss on top of his head. Ben looked up to his mother.
“Can you sing me that song again, please?” he asked quietly.
Leia smiled and responded with a humming. Ben leaned further into his mother.
“Close your eyes, lay your head down Now it’s time to sleep May you find great adventure As you lie and dream If you’re scared of the darkness I will calm your fear There’s a light in the hallway So you know I’m here.”
The young boy rubbed his eye as his scared breathing slowed. The image of the nightmare began to gradually fade.
“So count your blessings every day It makes the monsters go away And everything will be okay You are not alone You are right at home Goodnight, goodnight.”
Ben’s eyes began to close as his mother continued. Noticing this, his mother gently laid him back on his pillow as she continued singing. She kept his little hand in hers.
“You won’t need me forever But I’ll still be here For we all have our nightmares Even me, my dear From now on, if you need me You can sing this song There’s a light in the hallway Burning all night long.”
Kylo Ren laid on his bed in the darkness of his room as he hummed to himself. Out of habit, his eyes flicked to the space under his doorway and the floor. No light gave a glimpse to his room. He rolled on his side, away from his mask, as he continued to hum the last of the song his mother had always sang him.
So count your blessings every day It makes the monsters go away And everything will be okay You are not alone You are right at home Goodnight, goodnight Goodnight, goodnight
