A young boy named Alistair has a little sister named Esther who suffers from night terrors. Esther claims that the Dream Eaters won't leave her alone and is close to stealing her soul. When Esther mentions the Dream Eaters again one night, Alistair is determined to cure his sister of these nightmares and seeks out a reclusive wizard that lives deep within Eon Woods.
[Author's Note: This 2K+ word short story was my final project in my Writer’s Craft course way back in 2013. I decided to revamp it a bit but the heart of the story has remained unchanged. My source of inspiration was Hayao Miyazaki’s film, Howl’s Moving Castle, which was based off the book of the same title by Diana Wynne Jones. ^_^]
