Helpless Mirth

Lyra has discovered that not only is she able to climb out of her cot, but that if she pushes a chair next to it then she can climb in as well.

Why she would want to do such a thing she hasn't chosen to explain as yet: perhaps it's to commune with her pantheon of cuddly friends, perhaps she wants to have a few minutes of time just to herself.

Generally she is discovered before long by someone who would dearly love to subvert her plan and replace it with a tickling session. If she objects, she is unable to say so, because tickling has that effect, doesn't it, and little peals of laughter cross each other as they tinkle around the house, escaping the room in a way that Lyra can't when Eloise has her pinned down and helpless.
