(plays the horn) -Everyone scatters off, showing Romeo and Benvolio on the left side and Paris and Juliet on the right side. Paris and Juliet are frozen at first.

(Slaps Romeos shoulder) There are hundreds of maidens walking around this very land, even more beautiful and gorgeous! -Sees the servant pinning posters MASQUERADE and stops him/her and grabs the list of attendees. Benvolio: Here! Perfect a masquerade ball! And look, your dear Rosaline is here, you can dance with a beautiful lady and shell see what she has lost. Romeo: I do not know about this Benvolio. Will this truly help me? And this is a Capulet ball, what if there is a chance someone will notice us? Benvolio: All will be well, my friend. Just trust in me. -Romeo and Benvolio freezes. And light shines through Paris and Juliet. Paris: (Walking to Juliet) Oh my dear light, have you considered my offer of eternal love to you? We would be the perfect couple, my dear! Juliet: I am sorry Paris, but I cannot and will not love you. I am too young for you thus making us opposites. I am sorry. Paris: (kneels to Juliet) But you can LEARN to love me, look (pointing to the posters) a masquerade ball! We shall attend and then you shall see that we are perfect for each other.

I know you are in here, I am sorry for overreacting earlier in the ball (sees the rosepicks it up and crushes it) that damn boy has got her. (freezes) Friar Lawrence: Children! Children! Why are you running in this hour? Do you not know the danger that lurks behind the shadows? Romeo: Friar, it is me- Romeo. We (hold out their arms) need your help. You see, we are very much in love. It is as if we have been waiting for each other after all this time. Juliet: Yes Friar, we love each other very much. And we have a small favor to ask. Romeo: We were thinking if we could get married and you as the Priest. Please do this for me Friar, we are very much in need of your help.

Romeo: Here I am, Tybalt! Do not harass my friends any longer! Tybalt: (directs his sword to Romeo) YOU! You are the one who has caused horrendous problems to my family. And for that, you must pay. I order you to duel with me! Romeo: (holds his hands up in the air) I do not wish to duel with you Tybalt, I only wish to properly talk with you about this whole ordeal. Mercutio: Are truly declining to a duel?! I am utterly disgusted with you, step back (draws out sword) I will fight you Tybalt! -Tybalt and Mercutio have a swordfight and Tybalt kills Mercutio.
