Jacque and I slept in Celeste Markham's house. It was a perfect arrangement; it lowered the cost of the bills. We worked; we gave her the money from the Carnival. But we had a lot of money from meeting and greeting visitors. 

We made three hundred dollars. 

That was what made everything work.

We enjoyed the job. 

That was all that mattered in 1962.

On the black and white television, President John F. Kennedy spoke about The Cold War, and other matters. "Turn it off, Jacque". He nodded. 

"Okay, Madeline".

I smiled, and we slept until dawn arrived the next morning at seven o'clock AM.

The Dark Carnival would be back working again.

I had escaped from the Orphanage for Girls. I was now here, where I belonged. 

As it supposed to be.
