Romeoeoeo and Julietooooo
By danca, Updated
Two rival families, Montagues and Capulets, fight to the death in the streets of Verona. The Prince, Excalus, breaks up the fight and announces that the next time it happens the punishment will be worse.
Romeo and his cousin, Benvolio, and Mercutio (their friend) crash the Capulet party because they wanted Romeo to get his mind off a woman named Rosaline by seeing other people. There he met Juliet, despite being from opposing families, they fell in love.
They in fact, loved each other so much they married in secret, in fear that their families will discover. The priest who married them, Friar Lawrence, agreed to the marriage because he believed that it would bring peace between their feud.
Tybalt, Juliet`s cousin, challenges Romeo to a sword fight. Mercutio protects Romeo but gets stabbed in the process. In rage, Romeo get revenge and kills Tybalt then flees. Prince Excalus finds out and declares that Romeo will be banished from Verona.
Romeo meets Juliet in her bedroom before he leaves to Mantua. Juliet devises a plan with Friar Lawrence so that she could be with Romeo. Friar Lawrence lends Juliet a sleeping potion that will make her seem that she is dead. Juliet takes the potion later that night.
News of Juliet`s plan does not reach Romeo. Believing that she is dead, Romeo leaves for Verona with illegal poison so he could kill himself and be by Juliet`s side. Later that night, Juliet wakes up and finds Romeo dead in the tomb. Juliet takes Romeo`s dagger and stabs herself so she could be with Romeo.
