Summary: A smile beckons him over. Loving arms wrap around him. His body is pulled into a cocoon of warmth. His heart follows… Cadel has a nightmare.

Author's Note: Right, I am well aware that there is only one story other than mine in this category and I doubt there are really any readers BUT, I just finished Genius Squad and I absolutely adored it. Catherine Jinks is one of my favourite authors and as everyone must know, once you have a plot bunny it's almost impossible to get rid of it. Expect more Evil Genius from me, I really want to write about Fiona and Saul, I can just see it already! And this authors note is quite possibly longer than the actualy story.

Moonlight streams through his window. His eyes snap open. The furniture is shrouded in shadows. Everywhere he looks he sees him. In the light his eyes glow red. Prosper English.

His doona falls away. His feet hit the floor. Bright light floods the landing. Things become clear. The TV sounds below. His footsteps echo on the stairs. The living room is bright and warm. His adopted parents look up.

A smile beckons him over. Loving arms wrap around him. His body is pulled into a cocoon of warmth. His heart follows. His head burrows into his mothers breast. Hands stroke through his hair.

The TV becomes background noise. Soft murmurs float around him. Peace comes easily. Arms tighten around his torso. His grip on his father's shirt loosens. Sleep overcomes him. Nightmares disappear. Love takes their place.
