ChandlerDWho says that Romeo and Juliet are the only people in Verona’s most sad love story? There’s others that support their love because Romeo and Juliet were only young, and they couldn’t handle themselves. One of the people who supported their love was the nurse. She is talkative and choosy (especially, when it is about men) and overprotective, yet,  she is the one who helped them marry and be proud of them. But why did she help a Montague? Why did she help an enemy? We are interviewing her today.

  • How long have you been with the Capulets?
  • It was a sunny day. That day,  I was taking a carriage but there was a jam because it was holiday. It was about three hours late and I was frustrated! However,  I reached there. Anyway, Juliet was 13 years old so.. It will be 16 , Ms. Capulet was pregnant so Juliet wasn’t there yet. I was working as a maid, but after Juliet was born, Ms. Capulet ordered me to be a babysitter and a wet nurse. 
  • Wait, Ms. Capulet is Juliet’s mother, doesn’t the mother need to take care of her own daughter? Is there any special reason that she ordered you to be a babysitter and a wet nurse?
  • There aren’t any special reason. It’s just..Juliet’s mother, Ms. Capulet do not know how to take care her own daughter because sadly, she did not understand what is a love. I think her mother didn’t take care about her with love, but I don’t know the real reason. Ms. Capulet might be worried that if she couldn’t love her own daughter so she ordered me to take care about Juliet.
  • So now, what is the relationship between you and Juliet?
  • When Juliet was about 10 years old, she told me that I am like a mother more than her real mother. I was taking a good care of Juliet and I really loved her so much more than her mother because she was the only child in Capulet and also my last hope too. About 20 years ago, I had a daughter. She died when she was 5 years old because of the disease. She looks like Juliet so I felt Juliet is like my real daughter. So I wanted to protect her from anybody that who hurts her, especially Montague.
  • From your answer, I know you hate the Montagues so much. But did your thinking change after you met Romeo? Because you agreed to their marriage so does it means you change your mind?
  • Actually I am not hating them. It’s just Mr.Capulet told me to keep Juliet away from Montague and do not let her meet to one of them. I was poor and I need money in that time, so I obey him because I don’t want to be fired. After I met Romeo, oh, he was a handsome boy but… I am not sure but I was so worried to let Juliet to be his wife. I heard from Juliet that Romeo said that he swear to protect Juliet and make her happy. So I decided to support their love and disobey to Mr. Capulet only for this time. I didn’t care if he would fire me or not.
  • After Juliet died, what did you do?
  • After I prayed in front of Juliet and Romeo’s grave, I quit being a nurse because my job was done, and I did not want to stay in that palace anymore. So I lived in a cheap hotel for a few days and finally I decided to get a new job. It was so difficult to search for a new job but I became a housekeeper. Actually it’s not a “House” keeper, I think it’s “Palace” keeper…and also I had a second marriage! I married  a man that lives in that palace! And I had a happy life until now. I wanted Juliet to be happy as me but she is no longer here. So I want to enjoy my life for Juliet and Romeo too.
