I am traveling through space. Heading home to Earth. There are so many things I am excited to see again. I look forward to visiting my super hero team. I know they will be thrilled to see me. It has been months. I need to also talk to Bruce Wayne. He had something to tell me and I believe it has to deal with our daughter Yvie who died an unfortunate death. I have no idea what that could be about. I sound really gloomy though so onto something more light and lovely. I am ready to sink my teeth into a cheeseburger. I also need to do some toy shopping at my favorite toy store: Toys"R"Us. Oh they better be ready for me because I plan on buying everything to make up for lost time. It is going to be epic!
On Earth at the super secret super hero lair that Miss M is excited to return home to see,
Geoffrey: It's no use. Let them come for me. Let 'em just slaughter me. It's over.
Geoffrey: I just found out that today all of my toy emporiums have closed. All of them. Shut down. No more. The magic is gone.
Billy: Well he may still be coming after you, even with the stores all closed.
Billy: I am not sure Geoffrey, but we are going to protect you. We will make this right.
Billy: Yes. I really do.
Across town in the Batcave,
Bruce Wayne: No Alfred. I am not. I just needed to come down here.
Bruce Wayne: I am always worried about her but today I am just sad for her. I wanted to take her to Toys"R"Us. In all the chaos that has been going on these last months I was unaware that the toy store was closing down. Today was their last day to remain open. I wanted her to experience that joy and excitement.
Alfred: Yes sir, Miss M was quite in love with Toys"R"Us.
Alfred: I understand Master Bruce. I completely understand.
In space on Samus Aran's ship,
Samus: Does that seem like a wise idea?
Samus: If you insist. It might be a good idea. Or it could blow up in your face.
Ed: I know. I was being facetious.
Across the ship...
Miss M: I know they are. He has had a thing for me for many years.
Miss M: Yes. It does. However my life is rarely ever that simple. I am fighting with all my might to overcome my feelings for Bruce Wayne. That dumb man. He cheated on me last year! I mean cheated! Yet I still...
Miss M: (pauses) I have no idea. I am not sure what role Ed is supposed to play in my life. I do care about him though.
Deanna: Well that sounds very nice.
Across the stars back on Earth and unknown to Miss M, is her daughter, very much alive. Yvie sits in her play room full of Miss M's toys. She is creating her own magic that can only come from the joy of toys.
hey got a million toys at Toys"R"us that I can play with.
Yvie: I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys"R"Us kid.
Yvie: They got the best for so much less, it'll really flip your lid.
Yvie: From bikes to trains to video games.
Yvie: It's the biggest toy store there is! (gasps) Gee whiz!
Yvie: I don't wanna grow up, cause maybe if I did...
Yvie: I couldn't be a Toys"R"Us kid.
Yvie: More games, more toys, oh boy!
Yvie: I wanna be a Toys"R"Us kid...
Miss M: Yeah. I am ok. Just looking at the stars go by. I think I have seen enough stars to last a lifetime.
Ed: Ha. Yeah. We have been in space a long time now.
Miss M: Are you ok?
Miss M: (smiles) Ed. I have a lot going on. It was just a little while ago that I nearly married a psycho bent on trying to kill me...
Ed: I know. And what better way to heal than to go toy shopping with your favorite nerdy man?
Miss M: (laughs) You do make an excellent point. (pauses for dramatic effect) Yes. When we get back to Earth I will be thrilled to go on a date with you to Toys"R"Us. And greasy messy cheeseburgers.
Miss M: Ha. I do what I can. Thanks for holding my hand. It's been a rough few months.
Ed: What are you hoping to find when we go to Toys"R"Us?
Miss M: Everything. I am hoping to find and see everything.
There is no doubt in the entire cosmos that she is the nerdy woman of his dreams. They continue to hold hands and stare out into space, hoping and dreaming, refusing to ever grow up.
This is for Toys"R"Us.
This is for all the Toys"R"Us kids.
May we never ever grow up.
