Will the Capulet and Montague ever stop?
A fight breaks out in Verona
Yet another brawl took place yesterday morning at 9:15 on the streets of Verona.
The Montagues and the Capulets had an argument which broke out into a fight.
Many people were injured in this fight but no-one was killed.
There is no good reason for why the fight broke out but our witnesses say that the servants
of both of the houses started it and had to do something with it.
The servants started arguing and were using vulgar and rude language against each other.
Young Benvolio trying to stop the servants stepped into the argument but then it only got worse. Tybalt from the Capulets attacked Benvolio, but Benvolio on the other hand was a peace-keeper, so he tried to maintain peace, but unfortunately he got pulled into the argument by Tybalt which led to a fight.
"What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds? Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death," said Tybalt.
The fight kept on going bigger and bigger and soon after that, the citizens of Verona also started taking sides and fighting with each other.
People who were not involved in this fight were very scared, so they started running here and there. There was a chaos.
The head of the Capulets and Montagues came to know about this situation and they were very angry. They wanted to end the fight right there to prove which side was stronger and superior.
Finally, Prince Escales and his train came in and broke up the fight. He was very disappointed by the citizens because they were taking up sides instead of breaking up the fight. He called in the head of each of the house to go and see him...
