"I have a lot of respect for [the Pilgrims], now knowing what they had to go through." -Charlotte Archer "Charlotte sleepily watched the butter drip off of her bagel when a flash of beige flew by with her new soccer cleat. The bagel dropped to the plate as she started running. Her sister, Annabel, nearly careened into her as she joined in the chase with their brother, William, who ran from the bathroom with toothpaste foam sliding down his chin." "Charlotte did not want to open her eyes. She realized that she was cold as a shiver went up her spine. Freezing dampness coupled with the hardness of the floor made it hard to for her to feel her own fingers." " Our hearts sank into our stomachs as we watched the mast disappear into that cold, dark, stormy, night. I felt a mixture of panic and despair as the soldiers on horseback came for all of us women and children, who had been left behind on the beach. We all boarded onto boats as the king’s men rowed us all to the city to be put in prison." "'Charlotte politely brought it up to her mouth and took a sip. She tried not to make a face as she gulped down the bitter taste. 'What sort of drink is this?' 'It’s beer,' Mary said with a smile. 'BEER?!' Charlotte asked. 'I’m not allowed to drink beer!' 'But that’s what we all drink,” Mary laughed.'" read more
