Weekend Writing Warriors #15

 

My summer began at the beautiful Oregon coast

Well, it’s the last weekend of summer break. To celebrate, I have a FREE eBook for you. More about that at the end of the post.

Today’s Weekend Warrior snippet is taken from from As Only Mr. Darcy Can, a Pride & Prejudice-based romantic romp.

Miss Mary King has just inherited money from her grandfather, drawing the interest of the ever-needy George Wickham. Here we see him on the way to her house, with his brother officers in tow. 

“The Bingleys of Netherfield were cordial enough, at least the brother was,” said Denny. “Alas, for my pocketbook,” he added, with a grin. “I was hoping to strike up a friendship with his sister.”

“You’d do better to level at the moon,” said Wickham, laughing. “They say Miss Bingley is worth twenty thousand.”

“Not much to look at, is she?” said Pratt. “Aside from the clothes and the jewels.”

“Everyone knows that all heiresses are ugly,” said Denny.

“Not quite all,” said Wickham, and he reached for the door knocker.

“I think Miss King is pretty,” said Mr. Chamberlayne loyally.

But the lovely heiress Wickham had in mind was not Mary King, but Georgiana Darcy. Even now, her trusting loveliness—and her fortune—haunted him. He had managed the elopement poorly. How was he to know that she would write to her brother? Thus thirty thousand pounds had slipped from his fingers.

Three times the amount inherited by Mary King.
