What the hell are you doing here? The whole city is looking for you. The Prince wants you put to death. He might force me to marry your Uncle. Hush! Just listen. I’m leaving Verona. We both know I’ll get no justice here. Where are you going? The Friar knows who’s behind all this. He’s left the city, I’m sure to the Abbey a day’s ride from here. I plan to follow him, but what I want - what I want is for you to come with me. Tonight. Now. Come with you? Now? Why on Earth… Because I need you, Capulet. I need you to come with me. I need you to do this. Please. Benvolio… You’re all I have. You know the truth, and you’re all I have. I know you don’t like me. And I know I haven’t done much to change that… besides saving your life and trying to get you out of marrying me. But one thing I’ve learned being stuck with you - what I’ve learned from spending time with you… is that you’re a good person. A good and decent and honest person, which in this city is a rare thing indeed. You say you want to end this war. Then let us end it… not with some fake marriage between Montague and Capulet, not with some lie… but with the truth.
Imagine The Phantom being your best friend. No romance, no drama, just the two of you being bros.
