But, instead of Hermia choosing one of her choices Lysander and her decide to run away that night. As they were getting ready to leave Helena comes out and Lysander and Hermia tell her their plan. Helena decides to tell Demetrius just so she can see him. While this is all happening Bottom and his playgroup are all practicing for the play at the kings wedding to Hippolyta.
Meanwhile a new character is brought into the story named Oberon. Oberon is the fairy king in love with the fairy queen Titania. Titania has an Indian boy who she is training to become a fairy, but the fairy king Oberon wants the Indian boy for a fairy knight. Oberon is so mad that he decides to send Puck his best knight out to get a special flower that when the juice from the flower is put on someones eyes (while their sleeping) can make that person fall in love with the first creature they see. While Puck is gone getting Oberon’s flower Oberon sees Demetrius, running away from Helena and then sends Puck to put the flowers juice on Demetrius’s eyes while he's sleeping but soon after Puck realises he put the liquid on Lysander's eyes.
