in consequence of the missive, Darcy and Bingley, penned by Cheryl
between Darcy and Bingley. I would say it is anywhere between 4 to 7 years difference. The idea of them meeting perhaps at school (rather than at university) is plausible. The relationship may have begun as one of an older student mentoring a younger. Conceivably, Bingley may have been a fag to Darcy and it evolved into a friendship. I include the OED Online definition of fag (so as not to offend):
fag, n. In English public schools, a junior who performs certain duties for a senior. Also transf. a drudge.
