As he held her close, I found it hard to swallow. I watched them through a tear in the curtain, which two hours before had drawn the most successful season of the Disney to a close. Romeo and Juliette, how fitting a finale to the year.

In the dim blue light of the darkened stage I studied the back of his thin head and his birdlike neck, and saw his silk blouse flutter like the wings of a golden swan. Her face hidden from my view by his dreadful head, I could see only her platinum hair, and I imagined how their mouths were engaged in the most passionate of kisses.

They must have thought they were alone in the darkened threatre. Their embrace continued, as I grasped Romeo's sharpened sword, the one he had worn so recently, so brazenly, with such conceit. They stood mid stage, where the two halves of the curtain came together, apparently unaware of me, moving quietly behind the curtain, toward the center of the stage.

Juliette had been mine until Romeo appeared. Oh Juliette, where have you gone? I reached center stage, and with my sword razed high, I parted the curtain with my free hand.

"Romeo! Juliette! The play is over," I said.

With one quick slash her beautiful head was parted from her neck. Twice I plunged the long blade into Romeo's heart.

Sam, the custodian, found me the next morning as I lay beside the decapitated body of my Juliette, her lovely head resting against my blood drenched chest.
