This storyboard does not have a description.
Pyramus and Thisbe lived in houses so close together that they shared one wall together. At night they would whisper sweetly to one another. They longed to marry but their parents wouldn't allow them to see each other let alone marry.
So, Pyramus and Thisbe decided that every night they would sneak out and meet at the Tomb of Ninus underneath the mulberry tree which was full of snow-white berries.
Thisbe was the first to leave to go to the Tomb. After standing there waiting for Pyramus, a lion showed up with blood all over its mouth. Thisbe's first thought was that it was Pyramus' blood. Thisbe fled away from the lion and dropped her cloak.
The lion picked up the cloak in its mouth then dropping it leaving it covered in blood. Pyramus shows up and sees the cloak and thought that Thisbe was dead. Pyramus felt completely responsible for her death.
Poor Pyramus kills himself with his sword because he couldn't bare the guilt. Once Thisbe felt like the lion had ran off she went back to the mulberry tree and seen that the once white berries were now a deep red. She also saw Pyramus lying on the ground with a sword in his side and her bloody cloak by his side.
Thisbe then realized that Pyramus thought she was dead and that it was his fault so he killed himself. She told him that is was her, Thisbe, his dearest. He was able to use enough energy to open his eyes once then closed them forever. With the same sword, Thisbe struck herself with it so that death wouldn't separate them.
