Friar Lawrence's Diary of Events leadings to Romeo and Juliet's deaths.

Extracts from this document...


Friar Lawrence's Diary of Events leadings to Romeo and Juliet's deaths. Monday 17th June Eventually, Romeo has finally realised there is more to life than Rosaline Atkins. He came this morning talking of marriage to a Capulet. The beautiful daughter named Juliet. At first I didn't know what to say, my first reaction was anger, I can't believe that his love would change so quick from one person to another. I mean who would have ever thought that a Montague would marry a Capulet. It could cause such tension within the families, but then I thought, maybe it would bring both families together. But it doesn't matter if I do/do not think they are right for each other. I'm here to marry them, not judge. So the small ceremony took place later, early afternoon. ...read more.

I hope I do not come to late. My worst nightmare has come true, I have jus returned from the tomb. When I was there I found Romeo leaning over Juliet's body dead. Then I saw Juliet move, I ran over and pleaded her to come with me, pulling her away from Romeo, but then she noticed he was dead and started screaming and crying I didn't know what to do as I knew the guards would hear her eventually. So knowing that she wouldn't leave Romeo I ran and left her there. Now I have jus heard that she has killed herself. Why did I run? I could have stopped her. I wish lord that I had not got so involved. My selfish actions of trying to bring those two families together ended in the death of their youngest child.
