What if Paris had been Juliet's
friend? Her very best friend? What if he was the only
one she could confide in about the whole devastating thing with
Romeo? The one person
who really understood her and made her feel halfway human
again? What if he was patient and kind? What if he took
care of her? What if
Juliet knew she couldn't survive without him? What
if he really loved her, and wanted her to be happy?
And… what if she
loved Paris? Not like Romeo. Nothing like that, of
course. But enough that
she wanted him to be happy, too?
