in consequence of the missive, Lizzy going to Pemberley, penned by Kristen G.
]why didn't she say something to the point of, "As I am, however slightly, acquainted with Mr Darcy, I should feel wrong to go without being invited." In fact, why didn't the Gardeners consider this in the first place?
According to the novel,
Mrs. Gardiner abused her stupidity. "If it were merely a fine house richly furnished," said she, "I should not care about it myself; but the grounds are delightful. They have some of the finest woods in the country."
Elizabeth said no more—but her mind could not acquiesce. The possibility of meeting Mr. Darcy, while viewing the place, instantly occurred. It would be dreadful! She blushed at the very idea; and thought it would be better to speak openly to her aunt than to run such a risk. But against this there were objections; and she finally resolved that it could be the last resource, if her private enquiries as to the absence of the family were unfavourably answered.
I like this, now that the risk is gone, she admits to herself that she is actually curious to see it. So that also probably plays a part in her decision. =)
