The First Morning
On the first morning after their wedding, Juliet decides to make breakfast for Romeo, only to run into trouble from her lack of experience in housework. At Romeo's suggestion, the two split up the chores and enjoy new discoveries as a married couple.
Juliet: Finally... this day has come.
Romeo: Yes. It's been a long way here.
Romeo: In these desolate skies in which we live, you came into my world and brought light into my life. To me, there is no miracle greater than that.
Romeo: Even if there is no one to give us their blessings, I will never let go of your hand ever again.
Romeo: I swear it.
Juliet: Me too... No matter how many lonely nights passed, despite the pain, I couldn't bring myself to forget you...
Juliet: My feelings for you will never change, even from here on. My heart will always be yours.
Juliet: I swear it.
On the morning after her wedding, Juliet wakes up to rays of sunshine peeking in from the window.
Romeo lies beside her, gazing lovingly into her eyes with a smile imprinted on his face.
Romeo: You slept so soundly through the night, Juliet.
Juliet: You mean... you were watching me all the while? How embarrassing...
Romeo: There's nothing to be bashful about, my dearest. There is no lovelier sight than you in all the world.
Romeo: Good morning, Juliet.
Juliet: Mm... Good morning, Romeo.
They exchange their first morning greetings as newlyweds, cheeks flushed red and their smiles tender.
Juliet: I never expected this day to come... Is this a dream? A dream of what I've wanted for so long?
Romeo: No, this beautiful moment we share couldn't be more real. The nightmare that once tore us apart is gone.
Romeo: Focus on the sounds of nature outside. The birds bless us with their song. The morning sun shines its light upon us.
As if recalling something, Romeo gets up and walks to the windowsill before turning back to Juliet.
Romeo: I have to go. The skylark sings.
Juliet recalls a night she and Romeo once spent together.
Juliet: Romeo... If only you could answer me.
???: You rang, dear Juliet?
Juliet: Romeo! How did you get in here?
Romeo: I used my wings of love to fly over the wall.
Romeo: From here on out, I want you to tell me more and more about yourself.
Juliet: Okay. And I want to know more about you.
Their shadows draw ever closer when the harsh rays of dawn begin peeking out.
Romeo: I have to go. The skylark sings.
Juliet: You can be such a tease, Romeo.
Despite her somewhat disapproving tone, she looks to her husband with a playful smile.
Juliet: That's not a skylark. That's a nightingale.
Romeo: It must be a skylark. They call to announce the coming of a new day.
Juliet: That's not the light of the sun. It's the guiding light through the darkness.
Juliet: It shines on the way back for you.
Juliet: So please, just stay with me for a little while longer.
Romeo: Nothing will get in the way of our love anymore, my dearest Juliet.
Romeo: I swear to be by your side for the rest of my days.
Lost in each other's eyes, the two slowly draw closer to each other.
Just as their lips are about to lock, an unexpected sound ruins the atmosphere.
Romeo: What poor timing for my stomach to growl...
Juliet: Haha, you can say that again.
Romeo: My, oh, my...
Juliet: I'm going to have to teach your tummy a lesson for ruining our tender moment. I'll fix us breakfast.
Romeo: Mm. I can't wait to try your cooking, Juliet.
Juliet: Rest assured I'll pour all my love into making it.
Romeo: Why, thank you. In the meantime, I'll work on writing my next play.
After watching Juliet hum away as she walks off to the kitchen, Romeo resumes his manuscript from where he last left off.
Romeo: To further emphasize their interwoven fates in this scene...
Romeo: No, it's best if I leave that reveal for the climax.
Juliet's Voice: Eep!
Alarmed by the explosion and accompanying scream, Romeo rushes to the kitchen to check on Juliet.
Romeo: Juliet! Tell me you're okay!
Juliet: Ah, Romeo! Sorry if I startled you.
Romeo: What happened?
Romeo: Did someone plant explosives in the house?
Juliet: No, it was just the soup that exploded.
Juliet: I was warming the soup, and then the lid flew right off...
Juliet: I followed the cooking directions as explained to me once by Deborah... I've also leafed through a cooking book before... How did this happen...
Juliet: It always goes well with the yearly Valentine's chocolates...
Juliet: Now there's less than half the soup remaining.
Juliet: But it's okay. This is nothing compared to what we've been through so far...
Juliet: Eek! The frying pan's burst into flames!
Romeo: Juliet! Back away!
Romeo grabs the lid from the floor and slams it on the frying pan.
Romeo: Give it a few seconds, and the fire should die down.
Juliet: Th-thank you, Romeo...
Romeo: What is it now?
Juliet: The seaweed I soaked in water is all puffed up now!
Seeing the seaweed extend out of the bowl and wriggle about like a sea monster, Romeo breathes a sigh.
Juliet: I thought I'd make us salad... I used two full bags since there's two of us...
Romeo: Yes. I understand how you feel all too well, Juliet.
Romeo: But dried seaweed grows ten times in size when taking in water.
Juliet: Oh, I didn't know! You're so knowledgeable, Romeo!
Romeo: Haha... I... guess you could say that...
Juliet: Food can change in size, huh... There's so much to learn about cooking!
Romeo: Um, Juliet? It makes me happy to know that you want to cook for me.
Romeo: But if something like this happens again, we could end up burning the house down.
Juliet: Y-you're right... We just moved into this wonderful new home too...
Romeo: Just to be on the safe side, how about I handle cooking duties from now on?
Juliet: Are you sure?
Romeo: Having lived alone for some time, I've developed a bit of a knack for it.
Romeo: Maybe you can focus on cleaning and laundry instead.
Romeo: We can support each other by splitting up household duties. Surely that would be better for us as loving husband and wife.
Juliet: Support each other... You're right, Romeo.
Juliet: I was too concerned with what I could do to support you and pushed myself too hard.
Juliet: Thank you for looking out for me, Romeo. I'm so glad we're together.
Romeo: Me too, Juliet.
Romeo: I might not always be the most reliable husband, but I promise to always be true to you.
Juliet: As will I, my love.
Although the first morning for this newlywed couple gets off to a frantic start...
Their love and mutual respect for each other will go a long way in helping them live happily ever after.
By the by, Juliet is set to run into more trouble with housecleaning and laundry in the days ahead, but that is a tale for another time.
