Six Sentence Sunday
Happy birthday to Jane Austen!
The following excerpt is from Pulse and Prejudice, the paranormal adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, which tells the story of Mr. Darcy, vampire.
I am cheating a bit with these six sentences, as they are from the excerpt I am using for the Jane Austen Birthday blog hop. Click here for the full excerpt plus the scene from Pride and Prejudice that inspired it. Be sure to leave a comment there for a chance to win a copy of Pulse and Prejudice.
In this scene, Darcy has an unexpected encounter when he goes to the theatre....
They were settling in when, over the rumble of the crowd, Darcy heard a familiar trill of laughter. A lump formed in his throat; and for a moment, he could not breathe. He thought he sensed her presence; but peering over the balustrade, he told himself it could not be. The woman with her back to him resembled Elizabeth, but she stood with a man and woman of fashion whom he did not think would be of her acquaintance. She turned around, and his chest threatened to collapse: Elizabeth - his Elizabeth - here, in London, in this theatre. How the fates conspired for his torment!
