“Read another one! Another one, Will!” the youngest boy pleaded eagerly.
His brother frowned, “Nigel, time for bed… Will needs some rest too, you know.”
“Why don’t I tuck you in, little Nigel?” Will smiled gently.
“B-but I’m not ti-tired…” he said, stifling a yawn.
William raised a brow.
“Fine… I guess I’m a little sleepy,” the child admitted as he snuggled into his blanket.
Soon enough the young Bottom was fast asleep. Nick gave his friend a grateful smile.
The young writer smiled in return.
“Anything for my Bottom brothers,” he said, planting a small kiss on Nigel’s forehead before leaving the room.
