Chapter 24: Is It All a Dream?

"Why did you bonk me on the noggin?" Johnny asked, rubbing his noggin.

"Well, it was a test, to see if you were dreaming."

"1. Why did you lie about it then? 2. If we were dreaming, anything you do would be in your consciousness, so you'd have to bonk yourself. 3. You are supposed to pinch yourself to see if you are dreaming, not bonk on the head."

Mike replied, "1. I lied to be mischievous. 2. If we are dreaming, I am clearly in your dream. 3.-"

"Ow!" Johnny exclaimed, feeling a pinch on his arm.

"I don't think we are dreaming."

"Well, I'm not totally convinced, but to avoid getting pinched again, I will concede the point. But, I am still going to bed now, and we can discuss our powers, and what to do with them, in the morning."

"I guess you're right," Mike said. "And I am kind of tired, too."

So, the two went into their rooms to go to bed. Mike laid in his bed imagining the potentials of his super powers and quickly faded off to sleep. A room away Johnny lay awake, wondering if they would get any more super powers, and hoping desperately that Mike got the power to not snore.
