WIP – When Pride Prevails – Chapter 5 — 16 Comments

  1. Oh I do like how Elizabeth disconcerts Mr. Darcy and shows him she is not a fawning Miss or a fortune hunter! You could just feel the hackles of Bingley and Darcy rising as they each spoke with her. So how much longer are we going to be tortured? The anticipation of finding out all the ‘Why, What, Who’ is certainly building the angst!

  2. Damn! Why did Bingley have to interrupt? I hope he can find someone else to chase after and let Darcy and Elizabeth continue to converse and learn about each other. She seems to have a better opinion of him now so hopefully that will improve and she can help him with whatever happened to cause him to hide his identity. Eagerly awaiting chapter 6 😉

  3. What an interesting view of Darcy and Elizabeth! I like this version Monica and can’t wait to see it on the ‘shelves’ so to speak.

  4. Ah, Darcy has fallen under Lizzy’s spell, and she in turn has that brief spark to contemplate as well as the fact that Bingley doesn’t like reading in general and poetry in particular. Matters are set up to fall as we hope, but how they proceed is yet to be determined. Great beginning!

  5. This scene was amazing!! Darcy is definitely intrigued, and Elizabeth has reason to *not* be intrigued by Mr. Bingley, for how could she possibly marry a man who doesn’t read? She’s definitely curious about Darcy but not yet to the point of being intrigued…yet.

    I can’t wait to see their next meeting after each of the three in this love triangle ponder this afternoon in Clarke’s lending library.

    Thank you sooooo much for sharing this scene with us, Monica! It’s absolutely delightful!!

    Susanne 🙂

  6. What a great chapter! Love the exchange between Elizabeth and Darcy ( hope there’s lots more of those type of exchanges to come). Bit of tension there with Bingley- can’t wait to read more ☺
