That must have been very upsetting for you. He surely had a bad dream, and depending on the content, may have felt comforted by Dad this time, and maybe you somehow acidentally reminded him of some aspect of the dream. I am certain that he doesn't hate your guts ; at that age that's also a capacity he probably doesn't yet have, apart from having no reason for this. He was terrified of something awful and shadowy in his dreams,. and you are now troubled, indirectly, by similar shadows, perhaps coloured by feeling a bit guilty about being away from him with the recent overtime work. Be sure that he loves you, and he will soon show it again.
