Returning to London
Well, we've been here a week and neither of us is engaged.
What a sorry pair we are.
Well, I haven't had much opportunity to be alone with Jane.
What about all those walks to Oakham Mount?
Well what's your excuse?
I'm absolutely positive that Miss Jane is in love with you,
Bingley. But Number Two is giving me no encouragement at all.
Since when do you need encouragement? Just ask her the question and
she'll say yes. How could she possibly turn you down?
I wish it were that simple.
And what makes you think that Jane loves me? She hardly says a word
to me when we go walking. And she hardly looks at me.
Elizabeth's like that too. What is it with the women out here? The
ladies in London make it absolutely clear when they're interested.
One of them almost tackled me last spring.
Persistence, Darcy, persistence. That's what we need.
Yes, you're absolutely right. Persistence. ...I'm going to
London to think this over for a few days.
Please let Ed know your thoughts by sending him a little comment:
