The following day, Lancelot distributes rations to the needy people, the Friar comes along and asks where Lancelot gets his food from, and his wife lets slip that the Red Whirlwind helps them. Romeo tries to meet Juliet again to no avail so he visits his mother who has apparently lives in a convent, still he likes to visit his mother as she is the only person who greets him with a smile. As he gives a bunch of irises to her, he mumbles on about Juliet though not specifically, his mother guesses that his is in love with someone.

Back to Lancelot, a patrol group disrupts the ration distribution and arrest him on suspicions that he is in league with the Red Whirlwind. Cordelia consults Conrad on the welfare of Juliet, though Conrad believes once they overthrow the Montagues, Juliet can live freely in peace.

Juliet now as the Red Whirlwind rushes to rescue Lancelot. After breaking through the prison defenses and finding him, they run to the roof only to be cornered. However, Romeo intervenes the fight, he smells the faint scent of irises and realizes something about the Red Whirlwind. He asks for a sword and battles Juliet, only to tell her that they will escape by falling into the river. The three of them escape immediatly.

The three of them drift to a bridge and as Romeo leaves, Juliet thanks him for rescuing him. Though Lancelot couldn’t believe that Romeo Candorebanto Montague would risk his life and noblility to rescue the Red Whirlwind. Romeo leaves telling them not to let anyone know that he helped them. Juliet on the other hand, realises that she loves Montague’s son, falls to her knees in disbelief.

My Opinons:

Oh dear~ Juliet finds out that Romeo is her sworn family enermy’s son. Not like she would go and kill him out of revenge. Though the rest of her surrogate family would think otherwise. Also what’s with the giant tree (probably under the Keep) Montague visited? It glows, its big and is promptly named ‘The Mother Tree’ =/

And also, I find Romeo very constrained in his family. Even his mother has to leave the Keep to stay out of her husband’s affairs and leaves poor Romeo behind. At least he harbours no grudge towards her and visits her wheneven he can. Such a filial son =A=

On the other hand.. I h8 Montague! You b****rd!
