  • Miss Elizabeth

  • I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer

  • these past months have been a torment

  • I came to Rosings for the single option of seeing you

  • I have to see you

  • I have fought against my better judgment

  • my family's expectations

  • the inferiority of your birth

  • my rank, circumstances all these and I'm willing to put aside

  • and ask you

  • to end my agony

  • I don't understand

  • I love you

  • most ardently

  • please do me the honour of excepting my hand

  • Sir, I

  • I appreciate the struggle you have been through

  • and I am very sorry to have caused you pain

  • believe me it was unconsciously done

  • Is this your reply?

  • Yes sir

  • Are you

  • Are you laughing at me?

  • No

  • Are you rejecting me?

  • I'm sure that the feeling which had you told me

  • have hindered your regard will help you

  • in overcoming it

  • Might I asked why with so little

  • endeavour at civility, I must repulse

  • And I might as well enquire

  • why with so evident a design of insulting me

  • you chose to tell me that you like me

  • against your better judgment

  • No believe me, I don't make

  • If I was uncivil then that is some excuse

  • but I have other reasons

  • you know I have

  • What reasons?

  • Did you think of anything might tempt me

  • to accept the man who has ruined

  • perhaps forever the happiness

  • of her most beloved sister

  • Do you deny it Mr. Darcy?

  • that you separated a young couple who loved each other

  • exposing your friend to the censure of the world for caprice

  • and my sister

  • to its derision for disappointed hope

  • and involving the broken misery of the acutest kind

  • I do not deny it

  • How could you do it?

  • Because I believe your sister indifferent to him

  • Indifferent?

  • I watched them most carefully and realised

  • his attachment was deeper than her

  • That's because she's shy

  • Bingley too is modest and was persuaded

  • she didn't feel strongly for him

  • Because you suggested it

  • I did it for his own good

  • My sister hardly shows her true feelings to me

  • I supposed you suspected his

  • his fortune had some bearings on the matter

  • No, I wouldn't do your sister the dishonour

  • though it was suggested

  • What was?

  • It was made perfectly clear that an advantageous marriage

  • Did my sister gives that impression?

  • No

  • No

  • No, there was however I have to admit

  • the matter of your family

  • Our want of connection?

  • Mr. Bingley didn't seem to begs himself about that

  • No it was more than that

  • How sir?

  • It was lack of propriety shown by your mother

  • your three younger sisters

  • even on occasions, your father

  • Forgive me

  • You and your sister I must exclude

  • And what about Mr. Wickham

  • Mr. Wickham?

  • What excuse can you give for your

  • your behaviour towards him?

  • You take an eager interest in that gentleman's concerns

  • You told me of his misfortune

  • Oh yes his misfortune had been very great indeed

  • You ruined his chances

  • and yet you treat him with sarcasm

  • So this is your opinion of me?

  • Thank you for explaining so fully

  • Perhaps these offences might have been overlooked

  • had not your pride been hurt

  • by my honesty in a bit of scruple

  • about our relationship

  • Could you expect me to rejoice

  • in the inferiority of your circumstances

  • And those are the words of a gentleman?

  • From the first moment I met you

  • your arrogance, your conceit, your selfish disdain

  • for the feelings of others

  • made me realised that you were the last man

  • in the world I could ever be prevailed upon

  • to marry

  • Forgive me

  • Madam, for taking up so much of your time

Miss Elizabeth
