“What do you want, a happy ending?”
“Then you should pick another play.”
“But I want to do this one. Can’t you change the ending?” her voice sweet and wheedling.
“But I want to be Juliet.” She whined…
“No.” Her chin quivering is not going to make me back down.
“Tears are not going to get me to rewrite Shakespeare.” I said firmly.
The chin stopped quivering, and she stamped her foot, “You’re horrible! I’m never going to speak to you again!” She stomped out of the room, slamming the door behind her.
“I can only hope,” I sighed.
