A choice that included Lysander was the choice to forget that he even existed. It is funny how it all ends up to work out though, because her parents saw how well the were together, and approved their love for each other.I had a decision making point in my life also, that also resulted as Hermia's did. I had the choices that I need to make at one point, and I didn't really have much time to think about it either. If I smoked the drug, I would've been doing something wrong and against my parents' word. If I didn't do it, I would have came off as a clown in front of my friends that were with me. I attempted to weasle out of the situation and go somewhere, but peer pressure had never been any higher. I decided to say no, and I decided that it really didn't matter what my friends thought. They didn't really care, they were totally cool with it. It is ironic how situations that you think will end up in a bad note end up all good.At the end, Hermia and Lysander got together, because he parents were convinced that their love was deep. On the other side of the tracks, relating to I, I didn't do the drugs, my friends didn't care if I did it or not, and my parents never found out. Therefore everything turned out great.
