in consequence of the missive, Elinor is persecuted by Lucy, penned by Robbin
That Lucy had certainly meant to deceive, to go off with a flourish of malice against him in her message by Thomas was perfectly clear to Elinor; and Edward himself now thoroughly enlightened on her character, had no scruple in believing her capable of the utmost meanness of wanton ill-nature. (Chapter 49)
Lucy is deliberately cruel to Elinor and when she no longer has the excuse of Elinor being a rival for Edward’s affection—when she ensures that the Dashwood’s man servant delivers her message to them about being married without saying she has conveniently become attached to the brother in possession of the good fortune. The only explanation for this action is that Lucy deliberately meant to be hurtful and cruel to Elinor, perhaps even to the whole family. (;D)
