|I would call it brief

in consequence of the missive, Not so brief, penned by Therese
Their conversations on an accomplished woman, Bingley’s amiability and Darcy’s faults can’t be much more than 10 minutes each. Their conversation at the piano is only a couple minutes and the one in the shrubbery even less. The conversation when Mrs. Bennet visits may be longer but Darcy only speaks a couple times in response to Elizabeth. They may be significant conversations but they are of short duration.
The only conversation where I might agree that Darcy is open is the one where they discuss his faults. IMO it’s not enough that he should worry he’s raised her hopes.
They have been in company on other occasions but since Darcy is taking a step toward talking to her at Lucas Lodge I wouldn’t imagine they’ve talked much before that. At any rate it’s not till Netherfield that Darcy “began to feel the danger of paying Elizabeth too much attention.”
