During half time of the game Romeo came over to talk to Juliet about them going on a date, Juliet said yes but they couldn’t tell anyone from either schools. Romeo explaining his love for her saying “But wait, what’s that light in the window over there? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Rise up, beautiful sun, and kill the jealous moon. The moon is already sick and pale with grief because you, Juliet, her maid, are more beautiful than she.”(p.208. ll. 2-5).. Juliet says to Romeo “Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why do you have to be Romeo?”(p210. l.33). Romeo and Juliet started dating in secrecy, their love grew deeper and deeper for one another.

Being that they don’t understand her pain. As Juliet waited on her parents to find her away back home she came up with a plan; that the only way she could still be with Romeo was if she killed herself. Juliet decided that if she jumped in the ocean and held her breath then she would drown and could finally be with Romeo again. With the death of both Romeo and Juliet all over a school feud both families were devastated.
