Much ado about nothing Oh Claudio, my love, Claudio, what information could have wronged you into questioning my maiden truth? His words they cut me like piercing daggers. I see him burn me in the fires of his eyes! Or may it be a slander that he and Don Pedro have thrown upon me? To destroy my very being and ridicule me in front of society?

Ill beast to have turned my own father to hate me, to ruin my reputation and name! Oh how am I beset!

What have I done to deserve such treachery? Just because the Princes say so, I’m instantly guilty? Or a common stale as they so think? I have always followed my duties as the king’s daughter, I have always done what was expected of me, never have I been full of disdain, true to my word I have always been. Yet me? A rotten orange?

Dost I still have the chance at marriage if I were proven pure? If he were to o’er wroght this vile event and love me still, O! The absolute, quaint life we should live! For if Claudio is not to tax for the unpregnant accusation then I cannot abhor him, my love is still egal as ere and I do fancy to marry
