She cast him a nonchalant grin. As far as she could reason, they were in no actual danger.

On the contrary, Cal and Jamie still thought it was still a threat.

Rex and Jonah were also worried. Regina couldn't fathom why; this was all a dream, right? So they'd all wake up unharmed. Such was her line of thought.

Shaking his head, Cal refocused on the imp.

It had long since abandoned its tranquilising rifle, and now only had its scythe (and bizarre powers) as a weapon. It decided to swing its scythe at them.

He quickly ducked under the scythe, countering with a sweep kick.

The imp was knocked back, genuinely falling over. Its scythe flew from its grip, and seemed to slice through Regina, save for one minute detail: it passed through her as if she wasn't there. Nevertheless, Rex was at her side in a heartbeat, afraid she had been hurt. She had not.

Seeing he was at an advantage, Cal attempted to light the imp's fingers on fire.

This caused its entire being, after a moment, to combust. The more they believed they had the upper hand, it seemed, the more it was so. Perhaps, via lucid dreaming, they could fight back with some 'mind-f*ckery' of their own.

Believing he had won, Cal stepped back to watch.

The imp tried vainly to appeal to the others, but Rex was too distracted with Regina, who was being distracted by her brother; and Jonah had produced, by the power of dreaming, a mallet, with which he struck the imp. It faded away, and the scenery around them began to turn white, too.

Finally, we're leaving this place!​ Cal thought.

Via a transition of white, the five of them would awake, on the machine by which they had shared the dream. Amelia was still there.

“That... was quite the experience,” Jamie said.

Amelia gestured at a monitor on the machine.
"It looked it."

“Huh?” Cal looked at the monitor.

It was blank now, but it would be safe to assume that it had been displaying the events as they had unfolded in the dream-house.

"Of course. Even with three kids, there's not much to do around here- especially since I don't dare try to clean up this basement unless Miles is around, in case I accidentally wind up blowing the whole town sky high. What is it with men and their machines?" The last part was mainly an internal, rhetorical question.

“You got me,” Cal shrugged.
