Yesterday was the happiest day of my life. To wake up and know I would be finally married to my prince charming Romeo, and would look into his deep honey colored eyes every morning, From the moment I had seen Romeo at the feat, I knew there was something about him, as I kept looking at the other side of the room trying to track him, he was handsome and looked a bit older than me, but that didn’t matter all that mattered was that during the feast I would get the opportunity to meet him, I could swear this day, it looked as if darkness cloaked everyone, but there seemed to be this inner radiance that glowed with brilliance surrounding him. As he walked that radiance followed him like a heavenly spotlight. I say “heaven” because he seemed more conjured angel than mortal by his soft, white glowing face. It was like an angelic vision as I pictured the thought of me and him together, his every move and every step was like it floated on air, and right then I would have given anything to be in the air beside him.
I had also noticed that he glimpsed at me a couple of times smiling, I knew he to knew felt something for me. I had decided not to go to the other side and see if he was going to take any action but right then my heart won over, and I persuaded myself to pass by slowly on the pretence of searching for something, As soon as I reached the other side, I noticed him following me to the area of where the aquarium was, we just gazed at each other for more than 5 minutes. It came to the point were it had been considered to God as a sin and kissed. Nurse had called me so we separated in sorrow hoping to have another chance that night, I was called by nurse because my mother had craved a word with me. I left, I was amazed at how fast things occurred. I had done what my mom had requested of me and noticed that Romeo had left.
I than ran to the nurse and asked if she knew whom he was, she had replied whispering to me that he was the son of my only enemies the Montague’s. At that point I was unable to feel myself, as if my heart stopped beating in a sudden. I couldn’t believe it my only love sprung from my only hate! I had decided to run up to my room and think of what I shall do, I slowly decided to sit in the balcony. Staring at the moon as it shown over the city of Verona, I had heard the most strong and manliest voice, It was Romeo, I just stood there listening to every word that came out of his mouth, I was speechless, unsure what to say, my heart was just tripping along the very words I wanted to speak out, unsure how to phrase them. Just then I just followed what came out of my mouth, O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?….
After I had finished, he had stepped out of the shadows. We had stared at each other for as long as I had remembered. Romeo had for the first time told me that he truly felt true passion and love for me. I had than warned him that if he was to be caught on our property he would have been killed. So he would have to be aware and careful of every sound and move he makes. Things were happening too fast the world to me seemed so brilliant and fragile. I knew that we had to be separated for the second time tonight because we didn’t; want to be caught. We had arranged to meet privately with Friar Lawrence the next morning who had decided to do the honor of getting a Romeo and I married. It was the first day of my life I was passionately in love. I felt I had great power and ability to talk and share my feeling with my Romeo, which was something; I was unable to do with any other individual. Nurse had known all about what was going on, in fact she was like my own mother, she advised me and helped me.
The day of the wedding was the most joy filled day in my life, knowing I would get married to someone I admired greatly, my true love. The wedding had lasted less than an hour. We decided to go to our daily chores and than to meet in my chamber that night. I had managed to get home without my parents questioning me of where I had went. I remained in my room all day. I felt my heart beat so slowly I was very calm and relaxed. I knew that every heart beat, made the time closer to when Romeo would arrive. The night finished so quickly realizing we had not spent as much time as we wanted. But no one could change time. We would just have to meet again in a few days. Later that evening I completed my daily work, tidied up my room. The next day, nurse had woken me up quite early to tell me news, as she called it, I was excited, I knew it might have been about Romeo’s next visit or perhaps a message from him, but the nurse just shook her head to all the possibilities I had in mind. The nurse told me that it was news that I would dislike greatly, now I got very anxious and worried. The words came out of her mouth very quietly and softly as her eyes tiered up. “Tybalt is Dead” she said. I just didn’t want to here more, I haven’t cried this much in such a long time.
And after the nurse had told me that “Romeo” was the one that killed him that’s what really made my tears fall harder. I still couldn’t grasp the fact that he wasn’t going to be around and what made it worse was that Romeo, my husband killed him! I knew that since I didn’t know all the circumstances I shouldn’t get mad at anyone or accuse anyone. But at that moment I had zero respect toward Romeo. How could he do something so horrible? Later I found out what really happened….I found out that there was a fight and Tybalt had killed Mercutio, one of Romeo’s bestfriends. Romeo killed Tybalt out of anger. I know that it wasn’t an excuse for Romeo but it made me feel a bit more compassionate towards him, I still think it’s the worst thing anyone could do, but Tybalt wronged too. I’m so upset; I don’t know what to do.. I just couldn’t believe all that was happening, I felt like there was no point of living anymore, if Romeo wasn’t going to be there.
The nurse told me that Romeo would be present at my chamber tonight, and then would leave straight the next morning because he had the consequence of being “Banished” instead of being murdered. That’s what the prince commanded. That night When Romeo had arrived, we had kissed each other, and had spent most of the time talking it was so romantic, and joyful, yet the thought of him banishing from Fair Verona really affected me. The night passed by so quickly that the 8 hours felt like 5 minutes. It came to the time where Romeo had to leave, I felt alone as soon as Romeo left, like I had no one to talk to, no one to love, no one to be loved by. There arose a moment of silence as Romeo made his way out of the chamber, at that point I wished that Fortune could some how change and bring my love Romeo back. It was only the nurse that was there for me. Later that day, still during the morning Nurse came into my chamber and had told me that my mother is making her way there too. I started panicking, tidying up here and there and opening the window so that the light of the sun could come in..
My mother knocked and came in.. As she made her way across the room to my bed she saw me crying, and logically thought that I would have to be only crying for Tybalt’s death. I had assured her and said I was crying for that. She had than told me to wipe the precious tears of my eyes, because she said she had some “good news” for me, I knew that any good news from my mom meant the opposite to me and indeed that’s what happened. She had told me that Paris, the one I dislike arranged with my father to make me his bride the coming Thursday. I was astonished and just felt like I wanted to die, wanted to escape, wanted to shout. I was confused! I heard father enter the room, singing in a very loud tone, which he never does, this signified his happiness. He had looked over my head, as if he didn’t seen me and asked my mother if she had announced the news to me, she said yes but that I didn’t agree and accept it. At that point his high tone singing turned into loud yelling. He made his way towards me and slapped me across the face. He had threatened me that if I wouldn’t marry Paris than I would be kicked out of the house and would not be his daughter any longer.
I felt like I have done something so mischievous. I know that I had the right of who I wanted to marry, if marriage was by force the world would have been all filled with enemies and violence. I had replied and said that I didn’t want to marry Paris because he wasn’t in my interest, and that I didn’t admire him as a husband. My father didn’t wait a moment and slapped me with all his force across the face. I felt my face go so red and the force just made me fall hard against the floor. He then impatiently stepped out of my room, yelling thoughts to himself. I had then begged my mom to dely this marriage any way, or I will then prefer to lie in that dim monument where Tybalt lies. My mother had reacted very strangely and had decided to not put her self in this and to take my dad’s side. Now it was only me and the Nurse. She had told me to just marry Paris, but I had replied with all my force lifting myself up of the ground and saying no. Than I just knew that I would have no choice. I took a step or 2 towards the nurse and had told her that I was going to make my way to Friar Lawrence to make confession since I have displeased my father, which I didn’t mean I had meant that my only option left for me was to die.
