Beneath a warm sun, Darcy and Elizabeth ambled together along the wooded paths throughout the many acres of Pemberley’s rolling lands. Darcy held the hand of his wife as they meandered aimlessly along with no purpose besides to simply be with one another and enjoy the outdoors. Darcy absolutely lovedElizabeth’s passion for activities out in the playground that nature provided. Her zest and inner need to seek out active pursuits was one he adored about her as it mirrored his own countenance.
They wandered together with no destination in mind. Darcy snuck a few glances over towardsElizabeth’s beautiful face with frequency as he listened to her chatty voice. He loved her voice, and felt that he could feel her emotions flow forth within her every word. Chatting with her was more wonderful of a pastime for him than he ever could have imagined. They had been married now for a few months and he never tired of hearing her sweet tones.
“Mr. Darcy are you listening to me my love?”Elizabethqueried her husband once she noticed the far away look upon his visage. “I was asking you whether or not you desired for me to invite theHurststo the upcoming ball, but you appeared too lost in your thoughts to provide an answer my dear sir.” Elizabethgently thrust out her bottom lip, slightly pouting in a playful manner. She could never be coarse with her husband, as he normally attended to her more passionately than any man ever had. And she often knew his thoughts just as deeply as he knew hers. She could tell that his mind was elsewhere at the moment and she actually had an idea of where his thoughts had journeyed.
Darcy smiled back at his wife, as a slight blush rose to his cheeks. “My dearest, loveliestElizabeth, please accept my sincerest apologies for not listening to you over the past few minutes. Indeed my thoughts were elsewhere and I am truly sorry my beloved.”
“And pray tell sir, where exactly had your thoughts journeyed off to?”Elizabethteased as she saw Darcy squirm slightly amid her inquires.
“My musings were upon the most wonderful woman. This extraordinary woman loves the outdoors, and possesses a voice which I love listening to for hours. She views life much in the way that I do, but she actually has many deeper insights to teach me of as well. She connects with every single fiber of my being, emotionally and deeply. I can hear her voice in my head when I am far from home, and she captures my heart.” Darcy shuffled his feet forwards as he looked deep intoElizabeth’s eyes. The smile upon her face grew larger and larger as he continuing speaking of the woman within his daydreams. Her eyes twinkled as his words surged to her very soul.
“She sounds like a very special lady. Perhaps I should meet her someday,”Elizabethlightly fluttered as her heart beat faster.
“Indeed, you have no idea how special she truly is to me,” Darcy mused back to his wife as they smiled happily at one another and stopped in the woods for a deep, slow kiss.
