We have been best friends from the first day we got to know each other. Though at times I felt I was a nobody , you never treated me that way and always took care of me as I was one of you .We had our good times, we had our bad times and you seem to handle me, understand me like no other. Even when I was making those stupid jokes or when I was burning with anger and palpitations, you knew that I was just being me and always stood with me just like best friends do.
I always wanted the best for you. I wanted you to find your true love. Its not because you are Romeo, but because you are a great human being and a great friend who deserve the best. I was unhappy when Rosaline denied your love for her. I felt like going and telling her that you are one awesome guy and that you love her so very much. Unfortunately , she didn't care a bit and I was not happy , since I wanted you to be happy.
Then I saw that you have fallen for Juliet, I was pleased as punch and I wished every minute , every hour that you guys would be able to be together forever. But , a love story is not complete without an enemy. I understood that Tybalt was not happy with what you had with Juliet and when you received that death threat ; I wanted you to fight him. But being the man you are , you said you won't . Instead, I decided to fight him by myself.
As I battled with Tybalt for your honor , I never thought you will come between us and intervene. I didn't want you to get hurt but you still decided to come.You jumped to the middle of us and I never saw that blade edge coming towards me. I felt something sharp hitting my body like a sharp arrow. My body became cold, my heart was beating more than it have ever beaten all my life and I felt I was falling to the ground.
I knew my last moment has come as I vividly saw the blood stains in the Tybalt's sword. I wished so much that I could get up and kill him before he hurts you. But, my life was half gone, and I was helpless while waiting for my last breath to fall.
Deep inside, I was happy I did something worthy at last in my life and I did it for my friend in honor of his love , to protect his love. I will be leaving this world for now but you will be my best friend , my brother for life. I'll say bye for now till we meet again and I will be always there for you no matter what because you are my best friend. And that is a promise.
The above is the reply by me for this week's Indie Ink Writing Challenge, given to me by Andrea and the challenge was " Re-write a part of a famous story from a minor character's point of view. E.g. Romeo and Juliet told by Mercutio or Star Wars told by Darth Vader. It can be as long as you want!".
I was one of my hardest challenges yet . Hope you guys like my response =) .
Also please check out the response by Jen O who will put up her super reply very soon.
