FC: Romeo and Juliet
1: Prolouge | 1. In the Prolouge it says the setting, the main characters and how their mood is with each other and the ending.

"From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star crossed lovers take their life" so that means the kids of two enemies whose love is doomed they die " From ancient grude breaks to new mutiny" means that they've hated each other for a long time and new fights will come
