After meeting Romeo at the ball

There was another street brawl this morning with us and the Montagues but this doesn’t matter any more. Today was a wonderful day. The invites were sent for my father’s party.Romeo and his friends entered our party unnoticed by my family. I danced with Romeo and fell in love immediately but then my mother parted us and made me dance with Paris.I haven’t seen him since and am missing him already.Later in the evening, after the party had finished, I was talking quietly to myself wondering where my Romeo was, declaring my love for him. Then he appeared out of the trees, in the orchard, in front of me. We declared our love for each other, then I realised he was in great danger. If any of my kinsmen saw him they would have killed him on the spot. We arranged a secret marriage tomorrow in Friar Lawrence’s cell as Romeo is a Montague, my enemy.MONDAY – Romeo killed Tybalt 1 Hour after our weddingI sent my nurse with a message to Romeo in the morning, saying we shall marry today. Our marriage took place in the afternoon; now I can be with my Romeo for ever and ever.Tybalt saw Romeo, still angry from seeing him at the party and he tried to start a fight. Romeo said he could not hurt him but he could not say why. Brave Mercutio, Romeos best friend stood up to Tybalt and fought. Romeo tried to break up the fight but Tybalt stabbed Mercutio under Romeo’s arm. Romeo felt guilty and fought with Tybalt. Romeo killed Tybalt and then realised what he’d done. He ran away into hiding. When the prince arrived, he banished Romeo from Verona forever.My Romeo killed my dear cousin Tybalt, but I know Romeo didn’t want to, but had no choice. Tybalt can be like that some times. I don’t know what to do; my husband has killed my cousin. I am relieved that Romeo is still alive. I don’t know what I would have done if anything had a happened to my Romeo. I am horrified though my Romeo is banished from Verona for ever. It is worse than everyone I know being killed.I want to see my Romeo one final time and sure enough later that night he arrived. We spent the night together.TUESDAY – I refused to marry ParisRomeo left at dawn. My mother paid me a visit and talked to me about marriage, I said “Mother it is an honour I dream not of”.My father entered and told me I was going to marry Paris and the wedding was in a few days. I completely refused and my father verbally assaulted me. He was furious and he threatened to abandon me.I looked to my mother, she took my fathers side and ignored me. My nurse was all for the wedding with Paris as well. I decided to pay Friar Lawrence a visit, as I was already married and I would be committing bigamy.Paris means nothing to me but Romeo means everything.TUESDAY – Friar Lawrence gives me a solutionI went over to Friar Lawrence’s cell seeking advice and he gave me a solution to my problem.A special potion that would make me seem dead for the next 42 hours. The potion would stop me breathing and stop my pulse I would collapse and my body temperature would drop. My family would find me and think I was dead, the wedding with Paris would be cancelled and I would be rid of him and my family.Meanwhile, Friar Lawrence would send a message to my Romeo informing him of the situation. I would be buried in the family vault and Romeo would come back to Verona and we would run away when I woke up. We will be together for ever and no-one will know anything about it.Just before bed I will take the potion.But I am unsure about the potion What if it doesn’t work? What if I never wake up? I’m scared.
