...Even after all the children had gone, and the darkness creeped in over the small caravan, Esmeralda and Clopin continued to laugh at eachother until their sides got sore. As their laughter began to subside, Esmeralda asked Clopin, "Clopin, don't you think I'm getting too old for this?" He raised an eyebrow at her. "For what?" He asked. "For THIS!" She began tickling him with her puppet-free hand until he nearly wet himself from laughter. "No, Ma Choux," he began giggling, "Not even a grown man such as MYSELF is too old for child's play!"
