What? Are you making fun of me Arcite? Im serious! I'm in love with her!
You? You didn't even think she was human! It's I who loves her.
Stop! you guys will have a joust and whoever wins will get Emily!
There was a battle between the forces of King Creon and Duke Theseus. 2 Athenian soldiers; Arcite and Palamon and they got carried as prisoners to the Tent of Duke Theseus.
Arcite and Palamon is in the cell for a long time and one day they see Emily through their cell and they start fighting over her.
Since you won the joust you get to marry Emily!
Arite was released and he could not come back or he would be killed.Arcite disguised himself to be a servant for Emily and came back. Palamo also escaped and they ran into each other and started fighting. Theseus found them and said they must have a joust and whoever wins gets Emily.
Yes Emily, he is a chivalrous Knight!
Ugh, do I have to marry Palamon? I don't like him.
They had their joust and Arcite was beating Palamon but then Arcite fell off the horse and Arcite dies.
Since Palamon was still living, he gets to marry Emily.
Emily does not want to marry Palamon but Theseus said she needs to because Palamon is a " chivalrous Knight".
