Romeo and mercutio, both football players for South Pointe Highschool. They're playing Rock Hill High at South Pointe. Mercutio runs the hitch play at the 10 yard line and makes the catch. No ones covering him so he runs right into the touch down, when he got there for no reason a enemy player named Tybalt Bull dozes him and standing over him saying "boy, this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done me"(p229,III 61-62) but the hit caused Mercutio to break his neck and later die in the hospital.
Days go by and it's time for the funeral. Mercutio decides to show up but has a girl with him. The girl is gorgeous and Romeo can't stop staring. Romeos cousin Benvolio sees him but doesn't say a word. "What Lady's that, which doth enrich the hand of the yonder night"(p201, I 39-40) asks Romeo. Benvolio replys "I know not, sir " (p201,I 41) Romeo has to find out. Romeo spots Tybalt leaving her alone to use the bathroom. This is his chance. He sprints to her and asks who she is, she replys saying she's Tybalts. At that moment she looked up and they fell in love instantly. Just in time Tybalt walks out and sees them talking "'tis he, that villain Romeo" he says to himself. Romeo and Juliet exchange numbers before Tybalt can get to them. Tybalt drags Juliet away and they leave.
Romeo and Juliet text the whole night learning about each other. Juliet says she has to move to North Carolina soon and Romeo is devestated. But they make a plan to get married and move away themselves so they can be together. Without Juliet knowing, Tybalt was looking over her shoulder reading her texts. He gets angry and takes off for Romeos house. While he's on the way Juliet has no clue and they continue to
Make plans for the wedding, they were to get married the next morning at 10:00 am at Saint Mary's church. Tybalt soon arrives at Romeos house and calls him outside saying "Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford no better term than this: thou art a villain". As Romeo cluelessly walks out side her is surprised by a hard punch from Tybalt. Without thinking Romeo just goes off, with no one there to stop it Romeo ends the fight by killing Tybalt and dragging the body into the nearby woods hiding it.
With nobody worried about where Tybalt is, Romeo and Juliet follow their plans, they get married by a hesitant Father Augustine. Romeo and Juliet without stopping both go home and pack to leave to Florida without anyone knowing. Juliets mother walks in on her packing and asks... Juliet try's her best to cover it up but finally gave in and told the truth. The mom wasn't having it and told her that they are moving today and to pack everything. At that moment they get a call from the police saying they found a murdered mercutio in the woods but don't know the murderer. For a while Juliet and her mom cry until Juliet calls Romeo telling him everything and how's she's moving today. She's scared they won't be able to be together any longer and asks "O, thinkst thou we shall ever meet again?" She gets no response, just a crying Romeo.
While still on the phone Romeo confesses to the murder of Juliet. She was shocked and filled with rage until she got the full story of what happened. He told her it was an accident and it wasn't supposed to happen like that. With Juliets mom being nosy she over hears them and calls the cops. Juliet tries to stop her but it's too late! She hops in the car and speeds to Romeos house. Romeo not knowing what's going on runs out side to hear cop cars and seeing Juliet across the street signaling for him to come on. Romeo runs inside, grabs his things and sprints across the street when suddenly an cop makes a sharp turn down his street accidentally hitting Romeo full speed, sending him flying into the ditch.
Juliet in tears runs over to a lifeless body holding him, she's shocked when she's soon handcuffed and arrested for being associated with him in trying to run. At this time Romeos grandparents and cousin Benvolio run outside while Juliets mom shows up. Juliets mom told Romeos family what "exactly" happened but they don't listen, they just lost someone. Days pass and Benvolio decides to check Romeos phone and sees the messages and starts discovering things that actually happened. He reads in detail that Juliet is being abuse and harassed at home and Romeo tried to help her get out of there and when Tybalt found out he's the one who actually attempted to murder Romeo but failed in doing so.
Benvolio show Romeos grandparents which then calls the cops to tell them what they recently found out. Juliet then confirms the story which leads to the mom being arrested for child abuse, and Juliet released for doing nothing. When Juliet was released she had no place to stay. Romeos grandparents saw that and they knew she was one of the last memories of Romeo so they take her in. Every day she laid in Romeos bed thinking what they could've been and being depressed until finally she had enough. She then took her life.
