3. Chapter Two

Chapter 2:
Grantaire met Josephine for a stroll through the streets of Paris. "Monsieur Grantaire," she called from behind him, "When do we all meet at the cafe?"
        "Oh don't you fret my fair lady, Josephine!" He mocked, "I'll get you safely to the cafè and to your sweet Enjolras. When time calls for it!" 
         "Monsieur Grantaire, you must be mistaken!" She said to him in a derisive tone. "For Enjolras isn't my sweet. You are the sweetest of all the  Barricade Boys!"
         "Now you're mocking Mad'moiselle, I am hurt!" He laughed and offered her his arm, she grabbed it happily. They continued their walk.

      "Grantaire, I do believe it's time to head to the cafè."
      "What a shame, I was enjoying our alone time." He sighed. Coming into view was the ABC Cafè. 
     "Ladies first," he said letting her go ahead of him, 
"What a gentleman!" She curtsied, running up the stairs.  
       Enjorlas, Courfeyrac, Combeferre, and Joly sat around with others as they arrived. Marius followed suit. Enjorlas' voice broke through the chattering, "Well, Courfeyrac! Do you have all the guns? Joly, Prouvaire! Our time is running short!"
        Courfeyrac answered, "Students, workers,everyone! There's a river on the run! Like the flowing of the tide. Paris is coming to our side!" 
         "Enjolras! At Notre Dame, the sections are prepared!" Combeferre told him. 
         "Grantaire, put down the bottle! Did we get the guns we need?" Enjolras yelled at him.
        Grantaire and Josephine looked to Enjolras, and Grantaire replied, "Give me brandy on my breath. And I'll breathe them all to death!" 
         Josephine giggled at his response, that was something he would say.
             "The time is near- So near it's stirring the blood in their veins. And yet beware!" Enjolras began, "Don't let the wine go to your brain!" He said, with a glance to Grantaire, who still put the flask to his mouth. "For the army we fight is a dangerous foe with the men and the arms that we never can match. But the National Guard will be harder to catch. We need a sign." He stopped with a look around his companions. "To rally the people, to call them to arms!"
        Josephine looked towards Marius, because he hadn't put anything in to the meeting like normal. "Marius, wake up! What's wrong today? You look as if you've seen a ghost." Josephine called to him.
       Grantaire looked to Marius as well, "Some wine and say what's going on!"
        "A ghost you say? A ghost maybe, she was just like a ghost to me. One minute there then she was gone." 
      Grantaire sat by his friend pulling Josephine into his lap and sang, "I am agog! I am aghast! Is Marius in love at last? I've never heard him, 'ooh and 'aah!" He cast a glance to the woman he held in his lap ad continued, "You talk of battles to be won. And her he comes like Don Juan! It is better than an opera!"
        Josephine tried to get up Grantaire, but he held her there. They started laughing, but Enjolras wasn't thrilled. "It is time for us to decide who we are, do we fight for the right at the opera now?" Enjolras cut in, "Have you asked yourselves what's the price you might pay?" He looked to Grantaire and Marius, this being said caused Grantaire to loosen his grip on Josephine and she allowed herself to take the seat next to him. "Is this simply a game for a rich young boy to play? The colors of the world are changing day by day. 
Red- the blood of angry men!
Black- the dark of ages past!
Red- a world about to dawn!
Black- the night that ends at last!"
     Marius rose from his chair and turned to Enjolras, "Had you seen her today you might know how it feels to be struck to the bone on a moment of breathless delight." As Marius described his love for this woman, Grantaire looked toward Josephine who smiled at him. "Had you been there today you might also know, how the world: may be changed in just one burst of light. And what was right seems wrong! And what was wrong seems right!"
    "Red!" Josephine pipped up.
    "I feel my soul on fire!"
     "Black!" Grantaire sang.
      "My world if she's not there!" Then everyone but Enjolras joined, "Red!"
       "The color of desire!"
       "Black!"
       "The color of despair!"
       "Marius, you're no longer a child! I do not doubt you mean it well, but now there is a higher call! Who cares about your lonely soul? We strive towards a larger goal, your little lives don't count at all. Red."
     "The blood of angry men!"
     "Black!"
     "The dark of ages past! Red- a world about to dawn!
Black- the night that ends at last!" They all ended.
     "Listen! Listen to me!" Gavroche said, but no one but Courfeyrac heard him.
     "Listen, everybody!" Courfeyrac yelled causing them all to look.
     "General Lamarque is dead." 
        Enjolras turned to his companions.
