"Oh, fair maiden. Please take my hand in marriage. I know thou is tied with an engagement, but nothing can stop our love. We will run away together, and spend the rest of our lives out in the wilds."
"I cannot do such deed. Though I wish to surely spend the rest of my life with you... I can-"
"Yes you can, my lady." His hand an outreach, Juliet climbed for the impossible.
The Englishman walked in with a cup in hand. "What are you reading this late at night?"
"The Almost Abridged Version of Romeo and Juliet."
You nodded. "His Romeo and Juliet could be called as one of the most famous work of all times." Your eyes adverted to the book again.
"Juliet! Why are you doing this!?"
Juliet didn't speak for she was dead, corpse as cold as stone. Romeo took the poison, drinking it - kissing Juliet one last time, as if it was their parting kiss.
A while later, Juliet awake to find Romeo dead.
"I do not wish to live if it's a world without you, Romeo." Juliet pierced the knife within her, killing herself to be with her one and only lover in Heaven, in Hell and in all just."
"Arthur?" He hummed. "Can we reenact that scene?" Arthur cocked up his brows. "Please? I'll make you tea for a month."
"Fine." You dragged him to the living room. You regained your posture, giggling one last time before Arthur shook his head. "Juliet! Why are you doing this!?"
"Can we replace our names within it?"
"If that's what you wish." You merely shook your head. "Let's try again, shall we?"
He was such a gentleman, it was unbelievable how capable he was of being so nice to you.
"(Name)! Why are you doing this!?" The vibes of his first line already shook you to no extent. You were dead on the floor with him speaking the monologue, but it was enough to feel the force of his tone.
You didn't speak as you lay on the floor, with Arthur then picking you up, tilting your head upward. "(Name)..." His tone changed to a more generous voice. "You're forever mine. I've never needed and loved anyone else more than I love you."
This wasn't in the play...
Arthur's lips landed on yours a moment later. The Englishman then fell onto the floor.
"I do not wish to live if it's a world without you, Arthur." You pretended to pierced the knife within your soul, and fell onto the floor.
You sit up to shake Arthur, signaling it was over.
"Come on! We're done! That was good, Arth-"
He wasn't waking.
You shook him one more time. "A-Arthur?"
No answer. You rushed to call the ambulance, giving them your information in a hurry and full of panic.
Fright, and nervousness ran through your veins as the ambulance came to take Arthur away.
You land a hand on Arthur's face, stroking his cheeks - absentmindedly admiring his looks.
You repeated a line from the play. "I do not wish to live if it's a world without you, Arthur." You smiled through your pain as you repeated what he said, "You're forever mine. I've never needed and loved anyone else more than I love you."
"I love you, (Name)."
You watch as his green eyes slowly crack open. "Arthur?"
"I can't live without you either," Arthur let out a small smile. "Stay with me forever." Arthur pulled you close to him. "I love you."
"I love you too." And Arthur holds you just for a little longer as the doctor enters.
"Mr. Kirkland, nothing is wrong with you. Just take enough rest. You've been working too much, I presume." Arthur nodded.
"You need to rest, Arthur." You shook your head as you stood up.
"Where are you going?"
"Don't leave me." Arthur pulls you into his arm again, smiling and patting you on the head.
I do not intend to live in a world without you in it.
