    Hi everyone,

    Please help. Declare peace here has a literal meaning or it means "ask for truce", "make peace"? Or something else?

    Strangers and familiars were stopping by to hear how it went one more time, and suddenly Baby declared peace. She just up and quit.


    Thank you.

    It's a literary made-up phrase that is meant to be the opposite of "declare war".
