Chapter 9

Now, once again Jane was faced with a choice. Run to him with open arms, or live her life in quiet solitude until it one day came to an end. Perhaps the choice was no longer hers to make, for he had already returned to London, hadn't he? Indeed he had. And now, her heart was sick with the possibility that she might never look upon his face again. Never again get the chance to gaze into his eyes, hold his hands in hers. She suddenly felt her heart quicken at the thought. It had been so many years since last they kissed. Jane remembered his kiss, by the fountain at a ball they had attended that summer. After arriving at the ball that night with wicked anticipation, she had searched what she thought to be the entire estate looking for him, only to find that he was nowhere in sight. In quiet desperation, she retreated to the outdoors, walking amongst the trees in search of him. When she came upon the fountain, she stopped, marveling at it's beauty. She had always found the simplest things to be the most beautiful. That was when she had heard his voice, low and rugged behind her. "Hello Jane." She turned to see him wearing the biggest smile she had ever seen. "Have you any idea how long I have been searching for you?" she asked, annoyed. "My, you are the most stunning sight I have ever beheld." His eyes were mischievous. "Care for a swim?" and with that, he jumped clothes and all into the cold waters that surrounded them. "Mr. Lefroy! What on earth has become of you? " she was laughing, for she too was a bit mischievous at times.
