Jay and Atlanta share thier first kiss as Romeo and Juliet, which for some strange reason gets under Theresa's and Archie's collars
"Archie, you will play Tybalt" Mme Van Bellot continued "Theresa, you will fill the roll of the nurse"
She continued to list of the remaining parts. All four of them where shocked at the rolls they had received
"I want you all to review your parts, please read and attempt learn acts one scenes one through three" she said after she had read of the last name "You may leave now, the auditorium will be open for another hour if anyone would like to practice. First practice will be same time and place as today" she walked over to her office to the left of the stage"
"You guys wanna go pack to the dorm to practice?" Theresa suggested, she looked a little down
"Ummm, yah, sure" Jay answered looking at her face
Walking out of the auditorium today was filled with an aquard silence, they all kinda stared at their feet as they walked.
"I guess...congratulations are in order" Archie said breaking the silence, extending his hand towards Jay
"Thanks" Jay said smiling
"So what I gather is that Tybalt is vain, fashionable, aware of himself" he said as they sat around the living room of the Brownstone, he gave a bit of a scoff " sounds a lot like Neil"
"I resent that" Neil said as he entered the Brownstone with Odie and Herry
"Hey where have you guys been?" Atlanta asked
"We signed up to do our part in your little play" Neil said proudly
"Meet your New stage director" Odie said giving a bow "Your heavy set lifting guy" he said as Herry stepped forward also bowing "and set colour co-ordinator " Neil stepped forward giving the most majestic sweeping bow of them all"
"So, who got Romeo and Juliet?" Herry asked
"We did" Atlanta and Jay answered simultaneously
The three of them burst out laughing
"What's so funny?" Atlanta asked
"Atlanta, have you never read Romeo and Juliet?" Odie asked
"No, not really" She replied
"Well, I'll use one example, act three, scene five" Odie said still laughing
"Oh man" she said looking at Jay
"That's not all" Odie started "Mme Bellot added a couple more kisses, she said romance is what people want to see"
"You've gotta be kidding" Jay said hitting himself over the head with his script
"Very good, you've all worked on the scenes I gave you to learn, lets try the next couple scenes shall we?" Mme Van Bellot said
scene four was easy, but the following scene is what sent heat under both the collars of Theresa and Archie
" If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss." Jay said
"Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss." Atlanta replied
/"Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?" /Jay said closing in on Atlanta
"Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer." Atlanta said, it was acting at it's best
"O, then dear saint, let lips do what hands do;
They pray: Grant thou, lest faith turn to despair." Jay stood looking into Atlanta's eyes
"Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake. Atlanta said now looking back into Jay's
"Then move not while my prayer's effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purged." Jay kissed her
Atlanta felt his soft lips on her own, she felt something else though, was it a spark? She thought, but she quickly shook the feeling from her mind
Calm down Theresa, calm down she said to herself as she watched the scene before her, she looked over at Archie who was also holding back anger.
" Then have my lips the sin that they have took" Atlanta said breaking from their seemingly long kiss.
All Odie, Herry and Neil could do was laugh from the rafters of the auditorium as they set up the lighting
