"and he shall smite the wicked and plunge them into the fiery pit!"
AU: With all the misery going on for the past few days, it had taken Esmeralda a lot to force a smile. While her thoughts wandered off to places she’d rather not think about, she subconsciously brought herself to Clopin’s little carriage. Watching how he entertained the local children with his play, she remembered how he used to tell similar stories to her, back when she was a child. Life had been so much easier, when tucked away completely in the covers and blankets back at Clopin’s home. It didn’t take her long, or a genuine smile fought its way onto Esmeralda’s face. She made a note to herself; if she ever felt like the world was falling down on her shoulders again, that she’d just look up Clopin. Just like she used to do as a child.
Listen and Clopin will you. It is a tale, a tale of man and a monster…
