FC: My Diary
1: This diary belongs to: Juliet Capulet
2: I am absolutely certain that I just met the man of dreams tonight . Who would've thought that I would meet him at my father's party , of all places? Oh, but what a night it was! He was so humble, and kind and he said the most wonderful things to me and . . . and his kissing! Goodness, it's like he studied how to kiss . Unfortunately, our time was cut short, as my Nurse told me my mother needed to speak with me . It was not until after he left that my Nurse told me his name was Romeo and he was a Montague! “ My only love sprung from my only hate!”
3: If only he were the one my parents had seen fit for me to marry instead of that man Paris! Granted, Paris is handsome, but I feel almost nothing for him compared to what I feel for Romeo . As unlikely as it is, I can only hope I see him again after tonight .
4: I can't believe Romeo stopped by last night after the party! There I was, standing on my balcony and voicing my thoughts about the awful situation about him being a Montague, when he just appeared out of nowhere!
5: It was a little embarrassing, as he had listened to my most inner thoughts about him, but I'm glad he knows that his last name means nothing to me; I will judge him by who he is, not where he comes from . He pledged his love to me last night, but I told him “I have no joy of this contract tonight. It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden.” Still, I made sure to tell Romeo that if he truly wishes to marry me, I would send a messenger tomorrow to pass his final decision on to me. Oh, what will he decide? Does he really love me? Tomorrow seems like a millennium away .
6: Today's the day! What will Romeo tell my good Nurse? Will he marry me? If so, where? What if | she can't find him? I mean, it's almost noon now. I am positive that if she were my age and understood how much Romeo meant to me, she would move ten times faster. “ But old folks, many feign as they were dead, unwieldy , slow, and pale as lead ." Oh, my stomach feels like it's twisting into knots from anticipation of what
7: Romeo's choice could mean . The last thing I wish to do is disobey my parents, but what choice do I have? I love Romeo, and I am inclined to believe he loves me, too . Shouldn't I be married to someone I love, like Romeo? Or is it better to have my parents decide for me, and marry Paris? Only Romeo's decision can make the answer clear to me now . All I can do is wait .
