Convergence (Sandman)

The baby Daniel Hall wanders into The Dreaming. He enters the House of Secrets, where he meets Eve, Matthew the Raven, and Abel. Cain shows up and they start telling stories. Cain tells one about a parliament of rooks, Abel tells one about his early days, and Eve tells one about Adam and his three wives. Then, Daniel goes home to the real world, and his mother has no idea where he's been or that he was ever gone.
