in consequence of the missive, The Colonel witnessed an exchange of strong feelings, penned by Joanmarie
Elizabeth used the words "frighten," "courage," and "intimidate," but I think Colonel Fitzwilliam assumed she was teasing Darcy. I do not believe that she was at all fearful or intimidated, nor that she need very much courage to say what she did to Darcy. As for Darcy being "afraid" of Elizabeth, I think not (although he might have been afraid of becoming too attracted to her!).
Fitzwilliam might have felt left out of the conversation, but it didn't seem to bother him very much, especially since Elizabeth kept turning the conversation back to him. And the Colonel may have realized that he & Elizabeth had had a good deal of uninterrupted conversation already, so why shouldn't Darcy have a share. As for how much Colonel Fitzwilliam knew about Darcy's feelings, it's speculation -- I think he didn't know very much, if anything, but others have different opinions.
