Locked in the Netherfield library is one of the most popular scenarios in JAFF. This novella, however, comes with a surprise regarding the characters who fell victim to a broken doorknob.
The Netherfield ball turned out to be more a reason for distress than enjoyment for Elizabeth. Desperate and ashamed, she watched her family make a spectacle of themselves under Mr. Darcy and the Bingley sisters’ contemptuous gazes, until she could not bear it any more. Struggling for a moment of peace and tranquillity, she hid in the solitude of the library. While relaxing in an armchair in a corner of the dark room, two men entered, arguing. Before Elizabeth had time to make her presence known, the confrontation became more intense in words and tone, revealing deep secrets that should have been kept hidden.
When one of the men attempted to leave and end the fight, his temper betrayed him and he pulled the doorknob so hard that it broke.
Suddenly, Elizabeth found herself locked in the library with Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham – only moments after she had discovered that her judgement about the two men had been utterly wrong.
