An Entry in Juliet’s Diary after Meeting Romeo at the Party
(remember, Juliet is just 14)

I wish, I hope, in fact, I know that he is my lord. The one and only lord that I want to have for my entire life. And, can you believe how amazing he is?

     Romeo just happens to be a Montague. Can you believe that “my only love [is] sprung from my only hate” (1.5.135). Why me lord? Why me? Haven’t I been a good and honest child to my father? I have always been loyal to him in their “ancient grudge, [which has broken] to new mutiny” (Prologue, 3). Whatever I am to do? I am so distressed by this that I think I am going to be awake all night pondering what I should do with my own fate.
     What do you think I should do? I’m scared to ask the Nurse (although I am sure that she is on my side) and I wouldn’t dare mention to my mother....
