Its me again. I just looked back at the previous pages that I had written and realized that I have not kept you updated on everything. Where do I start? There is so much to tell you. I guess we could start off with Nurse. She is so crazy. Ever since mum told me about getting married soon, she has been going on about marriage and men. Mum finally made her stop before it got to far. She is hilarious. Hands down the best nurse ever.
Oh yes about the whole marriage deal. There is this man, well boy really named Paris who apparently wants to marry me. He has my fathers permission. To tell you the truth, I don't like him very much. He is not who I fancy this time. I am afraid what father is going to say. I mean I can't marry someone who I am not in love with. I don't even think that I could ever love him. Why do I have to marry this man and not the one whom I love?
There is another boy though. He is so gorgeous. We met at my father's party. He is called Romeo. It sounds so lovely, does it not? I can't stop thinking about him. His eyes, his smile. Oh Romeo. There is only one problem though. He is of the Montague house. There continues to be a feud between his family and mine. There has been one for ages. I don't know how to end it, but it needs to happen very shortly. We want to get married, but there is no way that my father is going to allow it, ever. I can't let him stop us though. I should be happy in my life and I am happy with him.
Ok diary, I have a secret to tell, or write to you. No one's eyes must see this but my own. Romeo and I are officially married. We went to see Friar Laurence who did it in his cell. I am so upset, happy and confused now diary.
I am happy because I am finally married to the man I love the most. I am upset because tragedy has struck. Romeo has killed Tybalt. The held a duel after running into each other. Tybalt was angry because Romeo and Bonvolio crashed my father's party when we first met. My father apparently did not want to start anything and told Tybalt to back off until they started something. I am not mad a Romeo, even though he killed my cousin. He told me all about what happened. Mercutio told Romeo that he would duel Tybalt and ended up getting killed by him. Romeo was so enraged at Tybalt that he stabbed him with his sword, taking his life. Now Romeo has been banished from Verona forever.
I don't know what we are going to do. I was talking to my father and he told me that I am now to marry Paris in three days instead of a week.
I promise to write soon,
