A Most Respectable Elopement, Part Twenty Three — 9 Comments

  1. Good for Lydia, still holding out for marriage before favours.
    I’m a little concerned that she hasn’t seen the men watching over them, are they really there?
    Maybe the porter was one of them?
    George seems to be reluctant to tell her how much money he has although at least he didn’t gamble it away.

  2. As much as I don’t/didn’t like Wickham… I must admit… I am liking him in this story. Dang! I certainly hope this isn’t one of his cons. Man, that would be disturbing. I hope all is as he says. If so… this could be a whole series of Wickham/Lydia working for the Crown adventures. She is perfect with him in that respect. She has all the attributes of her elder sisters… Jane’s beauty, Lizzy’s wit, impertinence, and courage [the girl is fearless], and probably really smart. She sized up that card player and, in a manner of seconds, had discovered his ‘tell.’ That is a great and handy skill when you are dealing with espionage. I can’t wait to see what happens next. At least she is holding out for marriage… that is good… and her reputation must be preserved somehow.

  3. My goodness George Wickham, you certainly are becoming very cautious with ‘your’ coin! I see a new leaf being turned over here…all for the love of a woman! What a woman she is proving to be! Elizabeth is not the only one with a brain it seems though Lydia is much more ‘daring’! She will certainly keep you on your toes and lead you in merry dance!
