Elizabeth's Farewell

 

a freely inspired short story of ' Pride And Prejudice ' by Jane Austin

 

A.J.B Minime


It all began a few months after the wedding. That day, Elizabeth was gorgeous in her beautiful white dress. Darcy remembered to have never been happier in his life. They were filled with presents, by their families. Yet Darcy's aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, refused to come.
This had terribly disappointed, but Elizabeth had paid no attention. Darcy had not insisted.
Their nuptials were then passed without incident, and great happiness.
Soon after, Darcy had to leave in order to buy more land in Derbyshire. During his journey, he crossed paths with Anna, the girl who according to her aunt should marry him.
Back at Pemberley, Elizabeth told him that Lady Catherine de Bourgh came to tell him that he had begun a relationship with Anne. Darcy did not know what to answer, justifying somehow.
Devastated, Elizabeth decided to step back in order to clarify the story. She returned to her family at Longbourn.
Meanwhile, Darcy was visited by Caroline Bingley, who told him that Elizabeth had met a very rich single man during his absence. Darcy was terribly sad and decided to go to her research.
At the Bennet family, he learned that Elizabeth had just left for Hunsford to visit her friend Charlotte. Mr Bennet also stated that he was aware of rumors about adultery Darcy, and he regretted having given him the hand of his daughter.
This is a desperate Darcy who then returned to Pemberley, saying it was useless to look longer, as he had already got the answer to his questions.

Elizabeth had certainly mistaken with another man during his absence, and that was all he needed to know. That explained her strange behavior before her departure. That explained everything.
Darcy waited Elizabeth in vain, anxious to get a confession from her. But months passed and Elizabeth still not returned. So Darcy was visited by Anne, who revealed her feelings and comforted him with all her grace and her love.
Darcy did not know how to react and just let her do, consciant to commit a serious error.
Elizabeth finally came home one night when Darcy was absent. There was a heated argument with Anne. Darcy went back to that time and announced his desire to divorce Elizabeth, thinking it better to stop where he thought she had betrayed him.
Darcy later learned she had committed suicide, pursued by remorse.
He decided reluctantly to give her love to Anne, at the great satisfaction of Lady de Bourgh. But he finally lost the confidence of his friend Mr Bingley.

 

' Oh ... Elizabeth, my loving and beloved Elizabeth ' cried Darcy, as he finished his speech before Elizabeth's coffin into the cathedral. ' What have I done ? '.

 

The End.
