Setting The record straight

Hi guys, how are you? Ladies, your servant...

Ooh, blank stares? Who's this guy, they say, to start talking so familiarly with us? I understand, it is not your fault. It is not my fault too, you know. I mean, a character steps out of the play you all have read, seen, cherished and dreamed of for last, 300 is it, years, and you give him blank looks of non-recognition? Where is your hospitality?

Anyways, where was I? Oh yes, the fault! So, the fault lies with the so-called Bard (with a capital B), you know who I mean. Don't make me take his name. Or make me, that will show the overblown person staring over my shoulder that he is not as famous as he makes out.

I mean, you tell the man my character is important, and he goes on and cuts you out of the play. And he gives my best lines and manners to somebody else? Crazy authors. How dare he? Why he did this? Ask him... no wait, don't bother. I know the answer. “Artistic liberty”, my foot.

So, my introduction. I am the reason you lovebirds have your idols, I am The Matchmaker (remember the capitalization), I am the person who made The Love Story (I think there is a movie by this name, but I am not talking about it) possible. My name is... what's in a name, bardie? Anyways, I am Romie's brother, sorry, you know him as Romeo, right? And I am here to state the record straight.

Did Romeo sent you, you ask? Go to hell, bardie (can't kill a dead person), this is all your doing. No people, this is the lieyou have been reading. My role in the story is much important than just hero's sidekick. How I know all this terms? Well, I also watch movies you know.

So, let me tell you the story as it happened, and let bardie burn in hell. (He's still staring over my shoulder)




This is a new project I have started. Read the entire story here.

All brickbats welcome. (Can't expect any bouquets right?)

Oh, and by the way, I just got myself a new mouse. Now call me geek, call me materialist, but this baby is sexy.

@Deepa: Thanks for the positive comments. Well, the names had to be shortened, 3 syllables is a bit mouthfull. Any suggestions about names welcome.
