They are afraid of dreams and of us for having them.
X and I once tried to introduce the other children at the orphanage to a more potent form of dreaming, but none of them seemed to understand, and then someone told the staff, so we had to drop it. After that, the staff kept an ever watchful eye on us, but nothing ever got reported — or so I thought.
Do we have something others don’t? It seems we do at least, but there might still be others like us; we just haven’t found them yet. A more immediate concern, though, is if I can use this ability more to my advantage!? So far we’ve only used it for sharing, and never really thought about fortification, but that might, to some extent, be necessary now.
