The little droplets of water beats louder every minute, the streets flooded, the hair drenched, the city was in a catastrophe. A pair of star-crossed lovers were found newly dead in the mornings of Verona.
Last night, Romeo and Juliet both drank the infusing liquor that run their veins cold, they couldn’t feel any warmth or breath in their body. They were experiencing death for twenty-four hours. Juliet’s marriage with Paris was originally planned today, but to avoid this, Friar gave them a liquor that was used to fake their death. Their fake funeral was held in Friar’s church today afternoon. After friends and families left with flowers to strew the two lover’s grave, the two lovers awoke from their deep sleep. But this midnight, Paris came to their tomb and saw them awaken.
“Oh Juliet! Thou were alive!” said Paris
“Oh Paris, it’s not…”
“What’s Romeo doing here? Was this criminal alive all this time?”
Romeo and Juliet couldn’t let anybody except Friar know that they were alive. Romeo decided the best decision was to kill Paris.
“Oh let’s fight!” yelled Romeo.
The two dragged their swords out, slashing it to the air and to each other. Romeo’s blade was sharp, and it sank right into Paris’s stomach, and blood poured out. While the knife was sinking deeper and deeper, Paris’s coat was stained with red. After a few minutes, Friar came to their tomb and saw this disastrous scene. The traumatic incident freaked Juliet out. Tears burst in fear, like a water leaking from a broken glass. The salty drops fell from her chin, Romeo’s hands shaking in shock. Friar told them that the only way out was to run far away from Verona.
As the lovers rushed out of the church, Friar heard knocking outside the door. It was the prince and his two watchmen’s.
“What seems to be the trouble?” said Friar shaking nervously.
“We just heard some strange noises here, so we came to check in, do thee mind if we search the church?” said Prince.
“Go ahead,” said Friar.
The guards started to search all around, and they saw Paris dead on the floor in front of the lover’s tomb.
“Prince! Prince! Come look over here!” yelled one of the guards.
Prince used two fingers and placed it on Paris’s pulse, and his pulse was not beating. Then, Prince checked the tomb, and Romeo and Juliet was not there.
“Romeo and Juliet, they are not here! Go find Romeo, go find Juliet!” ordered Prince.
The news of Romeo and Juliet’s disappearance was not announced to their parents and the public yet. However, this wasn’t the end of this disastrous day, there was another shocking news that was brought to Verona. Lady Montague stabbed herself with a knife and was found dead in her bedroom on the day of Romeo’s funeral. This night, Verona over flooded with blood.
The following morning, Romeo and Juliet was found in a small village near Verona.
“Ye has committed such severe crime in Verona! Thy ignorant act has led to infamous deaths in our city, when will this mutiny ever stop! Romeo! Thou will be punished by a fatal death penalty, and Juliet! Thou will be banished from our city!” Prince yelled with anger.
Romeo committed four severe crimes in Verona. He killed Tybalt, Paris, and his fake death was a serious crime that led his own mother to commit suicide. The only way prince thought of a punishment to Romeo was giving him a death penalty, and as Juliet faked her death, she was banished from Verona.
The love story of Romeo and Juliet ended with a tragic scene of death and banishment. Their love didn’t come true but mutiny in Verona has finally ended.
