in consequence of the missive, If she had merely..., penned by Therese
Before Wickham, she had merely not liked him, and would have reacted to him as a common, indifferent acquaintance, but she had to challenge him when she saw him listening to her conversations with others. But at first she did not notice him at all -- re chap 6 --
And then at Netherfield, they were thrown together, and of course she couldn't stay silent and naturally joined in conversations with him. After Wickham's lies, it was no longer simple dislike, but extreme dislike, perhaps hatred, because she believed he was a dishonourable, rich man who had cheated a poor man out of a legacy -- hence her behaviour to him at the Netherfield ball.
