Last week's post with Mrs. Bennet was so much fun, I decided to add more from that scene. This comes from my WIP Betrothed to Mr. Darcy. You can find last week's snippet here.
From an upstairs window at Longbourn, Mrs. Bennet, Kitty and Mary are continuing to observe the arrival of the Darcys and Colonel Fitzwilliam. Mrs. Bennet and Kitty are particularly interested in Colonel Fitzwilliam.
“Mama, he looked right at me,” Kitty exclaimed.
“Of course he did. Now let me look at you before you go and meet him.” Mrs. Bennet tugged a bit here and pushed a bit there to magically create a bosom where little had been before.
Mary observed the process and said, “Illusions of beauty are quickly shattered. True beauty lies in the virtuous soul of a young lady.”
“Oh shut up!” Kitty and Mrs. Bennet chorused.
