Cozy Classic - Pride and Prejudice
THE COZY VERSION
When the eligible Mr. Bingley moves into Netherfield Park, all talk turns to whom he will marry. Even the Bennet sisters, Jane and Elizabeth, are caught up in the speculation. At the ball in Meryton where they first meet, Mr. Bingley, smitten, dances with Jane twice, but his good friend Mr. Darcy will have nothing to do with Elizabeth—or anyone, for that matter. Elizabeth decides Mr. Darcy is a snob.
One day, on her way to dine with Mr. Bingley, Jane gets caught in the rain and falls ill, forcing her to stay at Netherfield. Eager to care for her sister, Elizabeth tromps through muddy fields and arrives looking a mess. Far from turning up his nose, Mr. Darcy is struck by her gumption, as well as her wit and her charm. Soon he offers his hand in marriage, but Elizabeth, shocked, turns him down cold.
The next day, Mr. Darcy hands Elizabeth a letter. In it, he owns up to his behavior, and Elizabeth feels torn, wondering if she has judged him too quickly. A few months later, after Mr. Bingley and Jane are engaged, Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth go walking. When he tells her his offer of marriage still stands, she confesses her feelings have changed. Soon wedding bells ring for everyone!
