One cannot know what a man really is by the end of a fortnight.
But if WE do not venture somebody else will; and after all, Mrs. Long and her daughters must stand their chance; and, therefore, as she will think it an act of kindness, if you decline the office, I will take it on myself.
What say you, Mary? For you are a young lady of deep reflection, I know, and read great books and make extracts. I closed my eyes and tried to block out my first week at school. I truly had every intention of coming back from winter break with a positive attitude.
I already knew whom to avoid pretty much everybody except for my roommate, Jane, and the other charity case in our class, Charlotte. I was doing well in my classes.
I already established myself as the top pianist on campus which was really important since I was on a music scholarship. And I had a job that I liked because I was able to interact with somewhat normal people aka townies. Oh, and I needed the money.
It always seemed to come back to money. And then there was Ella Gardiner, my piano teacher. She was one of the most prestigious piano instructors in the country, she was on the board of directors at countless music institutions, and she had the reputation of getting her students into the top.
She was the reason I came to Longbourn, and she was why I had subjected myself to what came along with being a scholarship student. I grasped on to the scrapbook my friends back home had made me for Christmas.
I flipped through the pages of photos, notes, memories from my former life.
The life in which I had a tight circle of friends, one that never made me question whether I belonged. I smiled as I looked at the pages filled with photos from the many traditions we started in grade school: Annas Valentines Day parties no boys allowed , our Halloween re-creations of Grease in my living room, holiday gatherings. Then I came to the final section of the scrapbookthe pages filled with the programs of my various recitals and concerts over the years and photos of my friends gathered around me to celebrate.
The very last page had a program from a concert by Claudia Reynolds, the classical pianist that I looked up to, along with a note signed by everybody: To the next Claudia Reynolds, we miss you, but know youre going to accomplish great things. Dont forget us when youre playing Carnegie Hall.
My eyes began to sting with tears. I could never forget my friends, but I had almost forgotten what it was like to have a supportive group of people cheering me on. I closed my eyes and tried to hold on to the memory tightly so it wouldnt slip away. It was amazing how two weeks away from campus could give you a false sense of security.
As the train pulled into the station, I envisioned a force field, like an emotional shield, enveloping my body. I was smarter, wiser. And I knew better than to let any childish taunts get the best of me. My barrier was up and there was no way I was going to let anybody in. There was only one person I couldnt wait to see when I got on campus. Jane greeted me as I walked into our room.
Jane even came to a party one of my friends had back home, and impressed even my most critical friends with her kindheartedness. I knew that someone, somewhere had to be looking out for me to have Jane as my roommate. After we caught up, Jane wanted to get down to business. So, we have a very important decision to make. She went over to her closet and pulled out three cocktail dresses.
Which one should I wear tonight? My stomach dropped.
Longbourn was hosting an upperclassman reception with Pemberley Academy. The official reason was.
But I had a feeling it was the start of hunting season the catch being a prom date. You promised me you would go! Jane reminded me. I know, I know.
I tried to sound optimistic. But unfortunately, Jane could always see through me. Here, try this on. Jane handed me a beautiful black dress. I always had to borrow clothes from her anytime we had a formal event.
And we had a lot of formal events. I was standing in our room, half naked, when Janes younger sister, Lydia, burst through the door. She didnt believe in knocking After I zipped up the dress, Lydia flounced on my bed and declared, Is that what youre going to wear? Lydia, Jane scolded, I think Lizzie looks fabulous. I smiled. You have to think that, Janeits your dress. Oh, right. Lydias face fell. Sorry, Lizzie.
Its just that Jane can lend you all her clothes, but you cant necessarily make them fit. Jane threw a notebook at her sister.
You need to be more polite, especially Jane let her thought trail off. But both Lydia and I knew what she meant. Jane and Lydias father had been laid off over Christmas when his company had merged with another investment bank. Not that it mattered muchhe got a huge payout and money didnt seem like an issue. Although as word spread throughout campus, you wouldve thought Jane and Lydia came back from the holidays with leprosy.
