Isavel McGough 8D Inca English-Mr. Cullen Empathic Writing-Benvolio Journal, This past few days have been the worst of my life, you’ll see why. Sampson, Gregory and I were heading to the market place to hang out for the day. They began to brag about the possibility in which if we encountered the Capulet’s they wouldn’t be afraid, and would fight and quarrel with them. So, when we got to the market place I disappeared to buy some bread and tomatoes. I suddenly heard familiar voices quarreling and ran to where I had left Gregory and Sampson. They were ready to fight; they had their swords out and had a menacing look onto Abram Capulet. Sampson bit his thumb and Abram questioned him. I told them ‘’Part fools! You know not what you do’’, but they didn’t pay any more attention to me, so I took out my sword. Tybalt came along and I said ‘’ I do but keep the peace. Put up thy sword, or manage it to part these men with me.’’ And he told me ‘What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, as I hate hell, all Montague’s, and thee’. You see that was too much and as Sampson and Gregory began to sword fight with Abram, Prince arrived. He said that ‘Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word, by thee, old Capulet, and Montague, have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets and made Verona’s ancient citizens cast by their grave-beseeming ornaments, to wield old partisans in hands as old, cankered with peace, to part your cankered hate. If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace’. Two days passed and Mercutio told me about the Capulet party, they were throwing a party for Juliet’s future suitors. We went to the party and had a blast! All that time Romeo had mysteriously disappeared for the whole night. As we were leaving the party, I found Romeo being very distracted from our conversation. He was looking towards a white balcony.
