Quote: But he’ll never hold us. Nothing. We’re on a mission for the great queen and we won’t be stopped.
Context: The kids Zach, Poppy, and Alice are playing with their toys and there story they made up with their dolls is that they are out at sea sailing to get the Great Queen. Zachs character is William the blade who is the captain and his boat is called the Neptune’s pearl. Alice’s doll was a G. I. Joe named Lady Jaye she was loud and wild nothing like Alice she was shy and quiet.
This Makes Me Think: How old are these kids? And why are they sailing to get the Great Queen? This reminds me of back when I was a kid my brother all the time would play with G.I. Joe. I don’t really understood why those toys were so popular.
