Even as the service for Saku Capulet concluded, Bradten
knew that the numbers were stacked against him. The number of distrustful glances cast his way and only his way made his fate a certainty. He did not know whence it would happen but he did know that the act of hatred would occur before the sun next road.
And surely, it did. Not long after the sun set, when he thought himself safely locked up in his own house, fate came rushing for him. Masked figures burst through the door and even as Bradten cursed the failure of the very wood that was meant to keep him secure, they bundled him up, blindfolding and gagging him. After what seemed like hours, but was mere minutes, the blindfold and gag were removed and Bradten found himself at edge of a precipice, high above a rushing river.
Before he could say anything in defence of his life, one of the masked figures raised his hand and ripped the amulet from the captive man's neck. The amulet was a jewlled M - a clear indication that Bradten Montague
had fallen victim to the bitterness between the two families. The treasure taken, the masked man raised his foot and planted it fair into poor Bradten's back. As the figure spun into the chasm, he could be heard to scream.
"O woe! O woeful, woeful, woeful day!
Most lamentable day. Most woeful day
That ever, ever I did yet behold!
O day, O day, O day! O hateful day!
Never was seen so black a day as this.
O woeful day! O woeful day!"
Even as Bradten spun to his death, the families continue their machinations.Roles
