Claire: [Addressing the wedding party] "Dear friends, fifty years ago, I went to Juliet's house in Verona. I wrote her a letter and asked her a question. And two months ago, I received a reply. And without that letter, none of us would be here today. [Claire begins to read Sophie's letter to her]
'Dear Claire, WHAT and IF are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side by side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. What if?, What if?, What if? I don't know how your story ended, but if what you felt then was true love, then it's never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn't it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don't know what a love like Juliet's feels like; love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for. But I'd like to believe, if I ever were to feel it, that I'd have the courage to seize it. And Claire, if you didn't, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet.' "
Sophie: I didn't go to him, Juliet. I didn't go to Lorenzo. His eyes were so full of trust I promised I'd meet him and run away together because my parents don't approve. But, instead, I left him waiting for me below our tree - waiting and wondering where I was. I'm in Veronoa now. I return to London in the morning and I am so afraid. Please, Juliet tell me what I should do. My heart is breaking and I have no one else to turn to. Love, Claire
