"…I realize that your family is outrageously ridiculous but I like you in spite of that. Actually I have had to fight myself a lot to allow myself to ask you out. It's been my constant struggle to let the issue of your upbringing and your family go but I really like you. Will you go out with me? You know, be my girlfriend?"
I can't believe that he just said that. Who asks someone out by insulting their family and the person they want to date. Elizabeth was frozen in shock. This was totally unexpected! Okay, I guess not totally unexpected as both Jane and Charlotte seemed to think he had the hots for me but William Darcy is the biggest jerk on the planet. There is no way in hell that I will go out with him. Uh oh, he looks like he's going to kiss me…maybe I should tell him he can forget it.
Pausing on his way towards his first kiss with his beautiful Lizzy, Will blinks and asks, "What was that, Sweetheart?"
"I said NO! And I am NOT your sweetheart and I will NEVER be your sweetheart!"
"What do you mean. I thought you liked me?"
"Like you? You are the biggest jerk in the world. I would never date you, especially after how you asked me…but I have plenty of reasons."
"Really? Name one."
"For starters, when you ask someone out, do not insult their loving family and the person that you like. That won't inspire tender feelings between you and your sweetheart. Secondly, I know that you told Charlie not to call Jane. Don't try to deny it because I heard it from your own cousin's mouth that you applauded your ability to convince Charlie that Jane doesn't care for him. And lastly, I would never date the man who was responsible for ruining George Wickham's career. I can't even begin to imagine why you think that your opinion is the correct one and that nobody else has any feelings that matter. I wouldn't date you if you were the last man in the world!"
Standing in shock William slowly began to blink. Too furious to respond to her accusations he said, "I said one…I think you said just about enough. I won't bother you anymore. I can now only be ashamed for what my feelings were. Goodbye!"
Both turned at the exact same time and stormed off. Had they glanced back they would have seen the strange balls of light that appeared floating out of nowhere. These glowing balls of light were floating in the same spots that William and Elizabeth just left. Then as fast as light travels they sped off in opposite directions into William and Elizabeth. Stumbling from the impact they paused for a few seconds but only a few and then continued on their ways home.
Upon entering his house, Will didn't feel like he could face Georgiana. After all she knows that I went to ask Lizzy out…she'll be begging to know when she can meet up with Elizabeth. GAH, that INFURIATING WOMAN! I can't believe she said those things, who does she think she is? Doesn't she realize the sacrifice I was making, so ungrateful. I just want to forget about this whole thing. I can't believe that after everything that just happened, I still think she was gorgeous when hurling that crap at me. Deciding on drinking whiskey to forget about Elizabeth and then going to bed, Will made his way to the liquor cabinet in his study.
Meanwhile Elizabeth was just entering through the back door of her house that she shared with Jane. Wanting to avoid the inquisition she was sure to receive when Jane saw how mad she was, she made her way up to her room and the shower. I need a hot shower after what I just went through. I feel like I should be looking for the cameras to pop out and people laughing that I'd just been Punk'd. But Will Darcy is not Ashton Kutcher! I'll give it to him that he's handsome but who does he think he is to be insulting me and my family! How can he ruin Jane's happiness, who is the absolute sweetest person on God's green earth, without a second thought? I am not going to waste one more minute thinking about that bastard, he's so not worth it. Switching of the water, Elizabeth dried off and changed into her pajamas. Crawling under the covers exhausted she closed her eyes and surrendered to what she hoped were relaxing dreams but not confident enough to put money on it.
The next morning…
"Oh God my head hurts….mmmmm, just wanna die." Stumbling into the bathroom, knocking over the mouthwash, hands full of water to splash their face their eyes lifted to the mirror. "AHHHHHHHHHH!" The scream could be heard through the whole house.
"Will? What is it, everything alright?"
Slowly turning to see Georgiana standing in the doorway to the bathroom.
"Yes, I am fine…stubbed my toe, sorry to scare you."
"Are you sure?"
"Yea, I'm fine…thanks."
"Okay, I'll be heading out to work. Hey, how'd it go last night?"
"Yea, with Lizzy."
"Great, I can't wait to hang out with her more…now that she'll be over here a lot more. I'll be a lot more comfortable hanging out here when I know that the chances of Mrs. Bennet barging in on us are significantly lessened."
"Okay, well I'll see you later…I'm off to work."
After receiving a kiss on the cheek goodbye, Elizabeth slowly turned back to the mirror to stare into the wide blue eyes looking back at her.
"Oh my God…what the HELL am I doing in William Darcy's BODY!"
Meanwhile Will rolled out of bed making his way to the bathroom. I can't believe I don't have a hangover after last night. I must've drank the whole bottle of whiskey. I can't let that woman get to me anymore. I have never had a drinking problem and then I meet Elizabeth and I turn into a drinking machine. Good God. While brushing his teeth he looks around for his shaving cream and razor…where are they? Georgiana better not have 'borrowed' my razor again. Opening the cabinet to look he freezes when he sees tampons. Why the hell would Georgiana have tampons in my bathroom? Closing the mirror he sees his reflection for the first time…"What the HELL?" Staring back at him were the eyes he knew all too well. Those beautiful brown sparkling eyes. Looking down afraid to confirm what he already suspected…Yep, those are Elizabeth's breasts! Oh my God!
Hearing the cell phone rang, he dove on to the bed and found it plugged in by the lamp. Recognizing his cell phone number he answered on the second ring. "Hello?"
"GET OVER HERE NOW AND FIX THIS AND DON'T YOUR DARE CHANGE CLOTHES!"
