A servant of mine overheard Don Pedro proclaiming his love for Hero. He heard Don Pedro planned on confessing his love to Hero the same night of the dance and will ask you, Leonato, for her hand in marriage!
That's preposterous! I will not consider this rumor to be true of any sort until I actually see it!
I will inform Hero of this rumor and make her aware of it.
So she can be prepared with an answer of course! If this rumor is true.
