[13] Script Lines And Marie

"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father, and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Capulet," I read from my script, locking my eyes with Braxton.

"Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?" Braxton stared into my eyes.

'Tis but thy name that is my enemy. Thou art thyself, though not a Montague. What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any other part belonging to a man. O, be some other name! What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet; so Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd, retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title. Romeo, doff thy name, and for that name which is no part of thee take all myself," I read from the script.

"No. No. No. Juliet, you're too stiff. Loosen up. Romeo, look more in love, actually both of you, look more in love," Mrs. Verde yelled at us.

I sighed and redid my lines. "O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? De-" Mrs. Verde cut me off.

"More passion. Don't look into your script. Go with the flow. I want you to do that again and this time, loosen up and look Braxton in the eyes," Mrs. Verde instructed.

"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father, and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Capulet," I did what Mrs. Verde said.

"Perfect," Mrs. Verde said. "You too, Braxton. Loosen up and look Lyric straight into the eyes."

"Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?" Braxton copied my tone.

"Tis but thy name that is my enemy. Thou art thyself, though not a Montague. What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any other part belonging to a man. O, be some other name! What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet; so Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd, retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title. Romeo, doff thy name, and for that name which is no part of thee take all myself," I repeated.

"I take thee at thy word. Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized; Henceforth I never will be Romeo," Braxton said his last lines for the day.

"Finally," Mrs. Verde exclaimed. "That was perfect. Alright that's it for today. Keep practicing your lines."

The put my script in my backpack and left. Caiden was waiting for me by my locker. "How was rehearsal?" He asked, putting his arm around me.

"It was fine," I shrugged. "Minus the yelling." Caiden chuckled and we went inside the cafeteria.

The guys were already at the table. They were throwing straws at each other. Morons.

"Hey guys," Caiden said. I sat down next to Ruben and Caiden sat next to me.

"Would you look at that? Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez," Kyle teased.

"Would you look at that? Mr. West and no Mrs." I teased him back. The guys laughed and Kyle pouted. Oh well, not my problem.

"Caiden, your girlfriend is a big bully," Kyle complained. I laughed and I stole a french fry from Kyle'd plate when he wasn't looking.

"That's my girl," Caiden said, proudly.

Caiden's girl. I can get used to that.

"You're Caiden Ramirez's girlfriend, right?" A girl with a cheer leading uniform said.

"Yeah...? What are you going to terrorize me or something because I'm dating Caiden?" I asked, thinking of all those cliché books.

She laughed. "No I'm not. I just wanted to get to know you. I'm Jacob's girlfriend, Marie."

"Lyric Parah," I said.

"Are you flexible?" She suddenly asked.

"Somewhat," I answered.

"You should join the cheer team. We lost one of the girls because she moved away. Since you said you're flexible, you can join. Also all of Caiden's friends' girlfriends are in the cheer team," She persuaded me.

"We'll see...I mean, I still have to practice my lines for the play, and I have to catch up in work because I wasn't here in the beginning of the year. Also, I have community service hours to complete, and on top of that, I need to look for a job, so I can have money for college," I listed. I have a busy schedule. I don't know how I do it.

Marie's face fell. "Dang it. Well can we hang out sometime? You know, when you're free? We can go shopping or whatever."

"Sure Marie," I smiled. "Don't worry about the cheer thing, I'll think about it."

"Yay," She hugged me and went her way.

"Why were you talking to, Marie?" Dana asked.

"Why not? She's nice," I smiled.

"Marie?" Dana scoffed. "Marie is anything, but nice."

"Dana, you got it all wrong. She's really sweet. She told me we should hang out one day and asked if I wanted to join the cheer squad because one girl is missing," I shook my head at Dana.

"She's lying," Dana narrowed her eyes at me. "Under all that, she's a fake bitch."

"Dana," I scolded. "You don't even hang out with her."

"We were friends once, Lyric," Dana said.

"She probably changed," I tried to convince her. "She doesn't seem like a bitch. If she was a bitch, she wouldn't be dating Jacob, because Jacob is a really sweet guy."

"That's a thing also. You're hanging out with players. All of Caiden's friends are jerks, Lyric."

"Dana, they are the nicest people I have ever met. You're judging them," I frowned.

"Lyric, I've been here longer than you. I know Marie and Jacob and all of them," She placed a hand on my shoulder. "I'm just looking out for you."

"Dana, they're really kind. If you don't like the fact that they're my new friends, then maybe you aren't a true friend," I crossed my arms. Dana gasped.

"How can you say that? I was your very first friend. I showed you to your locker," She said sadly, then sighed. "You really like them? Especially Caiden?" I nodded. "Okay fine. I'll give them a chance."

I squealed and hugged her. "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."

"Okay okay," She chuckled.

"You won't regret it. You'll like them too," I reassured her.
