NaBloPoMo: Thirty Acts of Love: Day 25. Adapting the Play

Connor and Helen dream about decidedly different things. Helen likes families, happy endings, musical instruments, and her brother. Connor likes assassins, punching, legos, Star Wars, and his sister. Despite this, they can spend a lot of time with each other being completely happy. Just yesterday, Helen brought out the tinker toys and a doll house that looks like a tree stump. She was making useful things for the family of gnomes that lives in the doll house. Connor got involved and I heard stories of death and destruction and various Star Wars references. Then I heard Helen "maybe everything could just end happily" and "look, Connor, I built an instrument" and "fine, Connor, everyone can die, but then let's pretend everyone is fine". Connor put up with all of Helen's thematic diversions because he really does love it when someone will play with him for a long time.
