Luckily, my young and naive sister Lydia has married Mr. Wickham. After Lydia ran away with Mr. Wickham to Scotland, I was positive my sister was going to return unmarried and put sham on our family for the rest of our lives. I had regret for not warning my family of Wickham’s past, but thankfully, Lydia married him.
Mr. Gardiner sent me a letter with all the details of why Mr. Wickham decided to marry my sister. Apparently, Darcy gave Wickham the dowry for the wedding because he didn’t want to see my family’s reputation fall apart. Why would he do this?
Was it in Darcy’s intention to help my sister, or help me? Could it be that Darcy still has feelings for me? After my rejection of his proposal it is highly doubtful. We haven’t even spoken since the day he proposed. I don’t blame him if he has no feelings left for me. He would never propose again, especially if it meant being in the same family as Wickham.
