“Shhh,” cautioned Romeo, opening the fire escape door.
Only a paper-thin wall separated Annalese from the hall so she was well aware of the couple’s escapades; she dubbed them “Romeo and Juliet” even though they did not fit the classic story.
It was two months ago when she first heard them. A trip down the escape stairs was a weekly event. Last week Juliet came back alone. Annalese heard Juliet sob, “Oh, Romeo, Romeo, how lonely you have left me.”
This week Juliet trysts with “Hamlet.”
“Oh, Hamlet, are you to be or not to be?” Fondly, Annalese remembers her own Shakespearean melodramas.
