Romeo and Juliet Act V Scene Three By: Dakota Ragan
Boy, give me your torch! Now go hide, I don't need people to see ya. Be sure ta whistle if ya see anyone comin' this way.
*Begins to throw flower pedals on Juliet's grave before hearing a whistle from Page*
I'm glad no one is here... Now, Balthasar, leave me and don't come back or I won't hesitate to kill ya!
*Paris slowly starts coming back into view*
Juliet, why'd ya have to go and die?! I love you!
You need ta leave. Now. Or I'll have ta kill ya.
I don't want no fight, I jus' wanna see Juliet.
I'm not leavin' and I sure as heck ain't lettin' you anywhere near Juliet!
Then I'll just have ta kill ya!
THIS! IS! SPARTA!
I'm sorry, I didn't want it to come to this.
Lay meh next ta Juliet before I die, will ya?
Of course, as your final request.
Juliet, I miss ya but we won't be separated for long. So tonight I'll die with ya.
Balthasar, what are ya doin' here?!
*Meanwhile, Friar Lawrence appears and finds Balthasar*
I'm here with Romeo, he went inside the tomb not to long ago.
Huh? How long have ya been here?
Only 'bout a half hour.
A half hour? What're ya doin' out here then? We need to go find Romeo before he does somethin' stupid!
I can't, he told meh not to follow him. Said he'd kill me if I did.
Fine then, I'll go alone.
Romeo? Where are ya? Wait, whats that? Blood?!
Paris is dead, and Romeo... Romeo! Oh no! He's already killed himself.
Wait a minute, Juliet?
Huh? H-hello? Friar Lawrence what're doin' here? Where's Romeo?
Juliet, hello. I'm just here to see what's happened and about Romeo... He's dead...
We need to leave Juliet, the watch is comin' come on now we gotta go.
I can't go, I have to stay with Romeo.
Romeo, why'd ya have to kill yourself? You didn't even leave me any poison to do the same.
But, a dagger. This'll have ta do.
*Minutes after this multiple suicide*
This is the place.
Secure the area, we have an investigation to begin.
I found Balthasar, he was hiding outside the tomb.
I found Friar Lawrence trying to run away, but I caught him before he could get away.
Keep a close eye on both of them.
What's happened here?
Everyone is callin' different names, some Romeo, some Juliet, and some Paris.
What's goin' on?
They're all dead.
I want ta know how this happened, now.
We have a lead. Balthasar and Friar Lawrence both have tools that could help them get inside the tombs.
My wife, look at our poor daughter! She's dead!
Montague, welcome, look at your son. But where is your wife?
She is dead, she died from a heart attack about our son bein' banished. Why am I here?
My son! Why'd ya die? Before your own father?!
Shut up, don't ya realize how serious this is?!
Chief, bring the suspects here.
I'm already seen as guilty.
That doesn't matter now, tell me what you saw. Now.
I helped these two lovers. When y?all arranged Juliet?s marriage with Paris she came to me. I gave her a sleep potion to make her seem to be dead. Romeo didn?t get our message so he believed that Juliet was dead so he must?ve bought a poison and killed himself to be with her.
Well how about Balthasar? Bring him in.
I went to tell Romeo of Juliet's death, so he came here and threatened to kill me if I followed him.
How about Page now?
Paris came out to put flowers on Juliet's grave, then Romeo came.
Hmm, now I'll look at the letter. *Reads letter* CAPULET! MONTAGUE! This is the cause of your doing! Your feud has caused these deaths.
I'll do the same for Romeo, maybe even more.
I'll give Juliet a proper burial, she was Romeo's love.
