Thanks for stopping by! We're moving on from the discussion about the marriage settlement. This scene takes place a couple days later when Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth and Miss Darcy are discussing Elizabeth's move to Pemberley.
“Why yes, very much. I fear I may miss walking these familiar paths once I move to Derbyshire.”
“But will you not enjoy exploring new paths at Pemberley?” Miss Darcy asked.
“Yes,” Elizabeth said, “I am sure I will find much to enjoy at Pemberley as well.”
“I look forward to showing you all the pleasures of Pemberley.” The tone of Mr. Darcy’s voice was unfamiliar to her and the feelings it evoked were equally foreign.
Elizabeth, who had taken a bite of toast, found that her throat had closed up and she had difficulty swallowing. An unladylike gulp of tea resolved the matter, though it did nothing to calm the slamming of her heart against her chest.
