1st Saturday June

I went to Friar Lawrence’s cell with the nurse to get away from the hectic preparations for the banquet. We got back home and I saw madam and father talking I didn’t think much of it. I retired to my room to have a long relaxing bath before the banquet. Just as I thought I was safe madam and the nurse were shrieking my name “Juliet.” I got out of the bath, put my gown on and went down stairs to see what the mater was. “Madam I am here what is your will” I said to her. She grabbed my hand and took me to her room. “We must talk in secret” madam said and shut the door on the nurses face, but then suddenly realised what she had done and opened the door again “nurse come back in again.” Madam said I was at “a pretty age” to MARRY. I feel a bit overwhelmed and confused.The nurse said ” An I might live to see thee married once I have my wish” that really got to me she wanted to see me get marry. Madam said ” The valiant Paris seeks you for his love.” I don’t want to marry. The nurse and madam were getting all giddy about Paris being a flower and that he wanted to marry me. At last madam had said ” speak briefly, can you like of Paris’ love?” I quickly said ” I’ll look to like, if looking liking move: But no more deep will I endart mine eye Then your consent gives strength to make it fly.” madam didn’t look to imprested and walked out of room with the nurse.I’m so discomposed every one is going to the banquet except from the Montagues. My dress is great it is black with white diamonds pined on to it, with my black and white fluffy wings on I feel like a princess, and to finish it off I have a black mask. My father knows how to throw a good banquet. I’m jittery because I have to meet Paris I don’t want to but my father said I have to, and I cant disobey him. I went down stairs to look around to see what the banquet looks like it is amazing. The room is covered from head to toe in white and red silk and a big crystal ball shining away. The tables are full of cakes and marvels thing to eat. In the corner of the room is a huge hog roasting away, the aroma is just divine. Madam and the nurse are calling me to show me Paris.Talk to you laterJuliet.Dear Diary,Madam and the nurse showed me Paris and they looking so stirred up when he took my hand and kissed it. Madam and the nurse are wrong when they said he looked like a flower I think he looks like a thorn. He is a old man just looking for love but he wont get it from me. I just think that he is sucking up to my father because we are rich. I wonder what he would think of me if I was not a Capulet. Dancing with Paris was about enjoyable as dancing with my Father. He things that he is good at dancing but he is not he just made me embarrassed, my toe nails hurt because he would jump on them he is so clumsy.I hope every think is okay I saw my father and Tybalt arguing about some thing. Tybalt is very aggressive are fiery and always looking for a fight. Just the other day he had a fight with the Montagues. I don’t understand about the fighting.A boy about 16 grabbed my hand he is so gorgeous. Words can’t describe him. When he smiled at me it was like I was like a blessing from god. Why haven’t I seen him before? Why hasn’t my father shown him to me instead of Paris? The boy said ” This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: my lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough tough with a tender kiss.” No one has called me a holy shrine before, I melted on the floor but I replied with ” For saints have hands and pilgrims hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss.”But he would not have it he said “o, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do, thus from my lips, by yours ,my sin is purged.” So he gave me a passionate kiss, wouldn’t that mean that I would have his sin so I said, ” Then have my lips the sin that they have took,” and he kissed me again. Two kisses I wanted three so to make him give me another kiss I said “You kissed by the book.” Just as he leaned in for a kiss the nurse said “madam, your mother wants a word with you.” Why now at this moment. I walked up the stairs to were madam and Paris were, when I looked back and I saw the nurse and the boy talking I hope she is not embarrassing me.Then the boys face drops what has the nurse said? I go up to the nurse and said ” Come hither, nurse. What is yond gentlemen? Go ask his name: if he be married. My grave is like to be my wedding bed.” But to my devastation she said “His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy.” I could not believe my ears Romeo a Montague how did he get in. Only if he was not a Montague my dad would approve I just don’t understand. No one knows what this fighting is about any more it is a ancient grudge. “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed enemy.” I’m going to go out to the garden so I will talk to you tomorrow.
