Act Five: Scene One
By yariel03, Updated
Romeo's servent, Balthasar, comes from Verona to tell him that Juliet has died. Since Romeo hasn't received any news from the friar, he believes him. He then quickly decided to return to Verona to die next to Juliet. But before he returns back, he goes to a pharmacist who can sell him poison.
If I can trust my dreams, then some joyful news is coming soon.
I had a dream that my lady came and found me dead. It’s a strange dream that lets a dead man think!
What is it, Balthasar? Do you have news from Verona! How is my Juliet?
Her body sleeps in the Capulet tomb, and her immortal soul lives with the angels in heaven
Is it really true? Then I rebel against you, stars! Hire some horses to ride. I will leave here for Verona tonight.
No, my good lord.
No matter. Get on your way and hire those horses. I’ll be with you right away.
Well, Juliet, I’ll lie with you tonight. Let’s see how.
Here are forty ducats. Let me have a shot of poison, something that works so fast that the person who takes it will die as fast as gunpowder exploding in a canon.
Put this in any kind of liquid you want and drink it down. It will kill you immediately.
