Re: The Way It Ought to Be, Chapter 10

This is especially painful broken up into chapters like this. I don't know who to feel more sorry for.

Lizzy is thinking she was wronged and, probably more importantly I think, disappointed in Darcy, which I still maintain there has to be some valid excuse for Jarling and everything else unless you intend to make this Mr. Darcy a rake. If he was a rake I expect he would have moved on and doubt he would have gotten as angry as he did. She is still showing her stubborn streak. If she would just stop and listen/let him explain/ask gentle probing questions, things might have gone smoother from the start.

Then there is Darcy. Poor man has no clue what's going on, even if I feel he is a bit clueless to miss the whole Miss Cornish fiasco that is brewing. Then again even Austen seemed to poke fun at the ton when Darcy told Caroline how females minds jump from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.

There seem to be a few days before they leave. Will Darcy manage to get her alone, will Jane and Charles get them talking (I liked one suggestion to put them in a room and let them go at it), will he come to Longbourn, will he join them on the trip and something happens to the carriage?

This has the potential to get worse before it gets better. It seems like they both have had their Hunsford moment, but they haven't had it out yet. Will they say things they regret this time around too?
