1: Dedicated to Mrs. McGee for being a great language teacher Made in January 2010 at Columbus Middle School
2: Once upon a time, in a town far away called Verona lived two families, the Montagues and the Capulets. For years their families have been fighting.
3: <- The Montagues | The Capulets ->
4: Romeo, a Montague was in love with a girl that didn't love him back. One day he met Juliet and fell in love with her. Juliet was a Capulet set to marry Paris but after meeting Romeo that wasn't a option.
5: The next day, Romeo and Juliet express their love by getting married, in a private church so no one knows but the Nurse and Friar Laurance.
6: One day Romeo and Mercutio were play fighting with Tybalt and other Capulets. When things got a little out of control, Tybalt killed Mercutio and Romeo became furious because Mercutio was his best friend. So Romeo then went after Tybalt and killed him.
8: When the Prince finds out about what happened, he is very angry. He banishes Romeo from Verona, and this makes Juliet very sad.
10: Since no one knows that Romeo and Juliet are together her parents set up a marriage between Juliet and Paris.
11: Juliet then goes to Friar Laurance for help on a plan to get with Romeo and not marry Paris.
12: The plan is for Juliet to drink a potion that will make her sleep for 42 hours and she will look like she's dead. Then her family will bury her in the Capulet's tomb and by night Romeo will come and get her and take her away from Verna to live.
14: The next day the plan goes well and Juliet drinks the potion and everyone thinks she's dead and they bury her in the tomb. Romeo's servant, Benvolio sees this and goes to tell Romeo right away.
15: Romeo doesn't get the letter that tells about the plan because there was a sickness between towns and no one was allowed to go through. So when he hears that Juliet is dead, he goes to buy poison and rides a horse to the Capulet's tomb.
17: Then, right in front of Juliet he kills himself by drinking the poison. | Juliet then wakes up and finds Romeo dead. She looks at him and notices the bottle of poison, so she tries to drink some of it too. After she realizes there's no more left she takes his sword and stabs herself.
18: When the Capulets and Montegues find out about Romeo and Juliet's secret love, they are ashamed and they end the family fued forever.
