Marie: Princess of England, sister of Raven, and friend of Alice
Alice: apple seller and friend of Marie
Raven: Princess of England, evil sister of Marie, friend of Duchess’s daughter, Madaleine
Madaleine (Mad-u-lane): duchess’s daughter and friend of Raven
Raven: Dear sister, to where are you headed?
Marie: To the market.
Raven: When shall you return?
Marie: five till ten
Raven: Do you promise to be back?
Marie: Here and now I swear.
Raven I will expect your knock.
Marie: I shall be off!
Alice: Fresh red apples! Shiny and bright! Buy one, buy one if you might! Big red apples! Buy one from me! Fresh red apples right off the tree!
Marie: Apple seller, what is your name?
Alice: Alice is my name. You are Princess Marie, hair black as a raven, long as a vine.
Marie: Alice! What a name divine. But please, Marie is fine. Let’s enjoy a snack in this fine weather.
Alice: It’s so much nicer to be together.
Raven: She should be here
Marie: Hello, Raven. I am back.
Raven: What did you do on a day so fair?
Marie: I met an apple seller by the name of Alice. We had a wonderful time!
Raven: An apple seller? How awful! You should stay away from her!
Marie: You cannot stand between us.
(Raven knocks on Madaleine’s door)
Madaleine: What is wrong, dear Raven?
Raven: Marie has befriended an apple seller!
Madaleine: I understand why you are upset. Why do you want advice from me?
Raven: Not advice, but help; to rid myself of Marie.
Madaleine: I will help you.
Raven: let us separate them
Madaleine: are you sure?
Raven: I have the tools, I have the funds
Madaleine: an open window, and open door
Raven: now is our chance
Madaleine: but what about the king
Raven: he knows nothing of this
Madaleine: then we must now sing
Raven: it’s now or never
Madaleine: yes, now or never
Raven: true friends join
Madaleine: to fight together
Raven: it’s now or never
Madaleine: truly now or never
Raven: yes, now or never
Raven: we will win or forever endeavor
Madaleine: it’s now or never
Raven: now or never we sing
Madaleine: we will separate them now
Raven: a promise, yes, a vow
Both: let us both go now!
Marie: Why is Raven angry with me? Dislike! Love! Sorrow! Intrusion! I’m in the dark eternal confusion! Loathing! Friendship! Alliance! Detest! Though you are the friend I like the best!
Alice: I have an idea to protect our friendship.
Marie: Please, what is it?
Alice: I cannot say but leave it to me.
Madaleine: Raven, this has gone too far!
Raven: to banish Marie from the kingdom is not too far, Madaleine!
Madaleine: What if you find out that the apple seller is kind. You do not know her! You should be happy that Marie has found a friend. You should also befriend the apple seller. Besides, if your mother and father find out they won’t take kindly to this. You’re not being kind to your sis.
Raven: Well said but I must continue.
Madaleine: You have a stubborn will, Raven. This has made you most unlike yourself.
Marie: What is going on?
Madaleine: You will know very soon I fear.
Raven: The die is cast; the ship has sailed. The goal is set; I cannot fail.
Madaleine: Perhaps going to the market will keep my mind off things.
Madaleine: Hello, apple seller. What is your name?
Alice: I am Alice and who are you?
Madaleine: My name is Madaleine. May I have an apple?
Alice: Here you go. Two pence please.
(Madaleine drops after biting the apple)
Alice: Are you all right?
I have consented to an evil plan
I have left kindness in a desolate dream
The world is ending as it seems
The unkind is I
That now I see
Woe is me!
Marie: Yes, Raven?
Raven: How could you partner with that apple seller to kill Madaleine?!
Marie: What are you talking about?
Raven: Madaleine was found dead near your friend’s apple stand with in apple in her hand.
Marie: I knew not about this.
Raven: Yes you did! Now my best friend is gone.
My heart is broken
My dear friend is gone
My joy is shattered
This ends my song
Pain now has a brand new name
My life will never be the same
I was never good to she
Woe is me!
Alice: Yes, Marie? Are you all right? Horror haunts your eyes.
Marie: You know the answer to that.
Alice: I thought that being friends would make up for the deaths of the late Raven and Madaleine…
Marie: Now I see! You traitor! You rebel! You’re deserting me! You are a spy invading this place! Falsehood lurks upon your face! A friendship withers at your call! You never answer me at downfall! I’ll wait alone to stay my fate! You grow not love but always reap! You cause the innocent to weep! Raven was right! Madaleine too! I don’t even know why I’m talking to you!
It is all my fault
I have caused myself great misery
I have lost my very best friend
This shall be the death of… me…
(Alice is still laying their dead)
Marie: Alice? Alice! This is my entire fault! My sister is dead, my friend is dead, my best friend is dead… am I dead?
(She screams and dies)

Let me list all the people who were there.
I have a bunch of cousins. I have twelve cousins to be exact. Here is the list of my cousins. I grouped the sibling groups together.
They live in three different states (four if you count me and Emily).
How deep have you swam?
