As could be found in Macbeth, I need a soliloquy from Banquo’s or Fleance’s perspective telling of "their" suspicions of Macbeth in relation to the death of King Duncan.

Either 10 lines in poetic verse or two paragraphs of prose writing.

Needs to provide an explanation of what you suspect really happened with the death of King Duncan, your concerns for your own life, as well as, those around you. Also, what you think Macbeth’s next steps will be and what your next steps will be to stop Macbeth.

In Macbeth, both Fleance and Banquo are aware that Macbeth is guilty of Duncan's murder. In "addition" to Shakespeare's play, one could easily construct a soliloquy to which Banquo or Fleance speaks to their concerns about both Macbeth and their future.

Example of a soliloquy by Fleance:

My father's death is weighing deeply

Upon my shoulders. I know that he is aware

Of who is responsible for his murder for,

He would not have cried out, "Fly, fly, fly"

Or made me a slave to his own murderer's death.

I believe that the same man responsible for my

Father's death is also responsible for my king's.

But who am I? Why is my death so important?

One thing I know, is that the pouring of blood is

Not over. I will stop Macbeth and "mayst revenge!"
