To start the quest, talk to Romeo in the Varrock Square. Ask him about Juliet and he will ask you to see her. Head west out of Varrock and you'll find Juliet walking around in the house just west of the bank. Talk to her and she will want you to deliver a message to Romeo.

Love's messenger

Go back to Romeo and talk to him. He'll read the message and learn that Juliet's father doesn't want them to be together. Juliet's message says that Father Lawrence may be able to help, so go see him. He is located in the church, north of the museum and east of the palace.

Love's plan

Father Lawrence suggests that Juliet should use a potion that will make her appear dead and will send you to the Apothecary. The Apothecary is located southwest of Thessalia's Fine Clothes in the Varrock Square. Talk to the Apothecary, and he will say he requires cadavaberries to finish the potion. These are located on the southeast corner outside the Varrock walls alongside redberries. Once you have a bundle, talk to him again and he will give you a cadava potion.

Go and speak to Juliet now, who will take the cadava potion and use it to appear dead. She asks you now to speak with Romeo to make sure he understands the plan as "he can be a bit dense sometimes."

When you talk to Romeo, he misunderstands and believes Juliet is actually dead, completing the quest.
