King Pedro and Ines de Castro?
Now it was kind of a rule, if you are a Capulet Girl you couldn’t even think about getting involved with a Montague Boy and vice versa.
“Oh! C’mon!” Celine exclaimed, jumping out of your bed, now she was standing next to you with her hands on her hips “You love books! ”
“Ah yes” You said sarcastically “Because that worked out so well for characters in literature and history right? Romeo and Juliet? Dead! Francesca da Rimini and Paolo Malatesta? Dead! Do I need to give you more examples?”
“Wait he what?” You took a breath to tell your friend about one of your favorite tragic love stories, but she suddenly turned around looking at the window looking at the raindrops and in that moment you thought about how it was a night like that, Victor created his creature “Alright, but I will tell you something” She took a deep breath, laying down on her bed and said one last thing before blowing your candles “Sometimes dying because of love isn’t the worst way to go”
She was killed and after Ines’s death, Pedro crowned her as queen making her the first and only Portuguese queen crowned after her death
Sometimes dying because of love isn’t the worst way to go, that phase played in your mind like and annoying song you couldn’t get rid of, yes of course, dying because you and your lover loved each other so much that none of you can imagine a life without one another was a tragic but beautiful way to go, the thought of in the afterlife you will be together finally can comfort the lover’s heart, but those thighs don’t happen anymore, right?
Leaving your last class of the day you went to your secret place, a little garden behind the brick fortress where the students attend their classes, it had a very adorable lake where swans liked to swim often , you watched them from an old gazebo surrounded by flowers, it was a nice day, it wasn’t so hot but it wasn’t cold as well, you took off your heavy coat with the Capulet Girls patch and your striped red and silver tie, it was usually with those you were identified as your house member, but right now you just wanted to be you, not a Capulet Girl, but just a simple girl that liked to read and watch the swans, after your talk with Celine a little thought played in the back of your mind, why can people just leave the others alone, with whoever they chose to be or love, if it isn’t illegal just some petty fight why even bother destroy someone’s life?
“I’m thinking too much about this, am I not?” You whisper while giving some pieces of your dinner to the swans “I think I am going mad! Now I’m even talking to swans!”
Your new friend flapped its wings as if he could understand your words, or maybe he just wanted more of your bread, either way you just gave him everything you had in your hand since you weren’t hungry anymore, you turned around to pack your things and go to your room, you wanted to take a nap given that you started to feel a headache coming, but when you went to get your bag all your stuffs were gone, far away you could listen a boy’s laugh, not just one but several, it wasn’t unusual that Montague Boys played tricks on Capulet Girls but you were never the one they usually pulled a prank on.
