Joe is a space knight. He has a ‘light sabre’ which he uses every night. Because at night, the space knights save the world and fight monsters. One evening, mum takes the light sabre from Joe, ‘because at night you have to sleep, not fight’. Now Joe is defenceless! He hears frightening noises and sees scary shadows. He fears that a big group of monsters is coming for him. Since Joe can’t defend himself, he calls for his mum time and again. After a while, she gets annoyed and gives back his light sabre...
