Pemberley Ball - Z7

When it was all over, the entire party was splattered with blood and other viscous fluids, but alive (except for Lisette). They all helped in cleaning up as best as they could, burned the bodies in the yard, and boarded up the broken windows.

Then they retired to their rooms to dress in clean, presentable attire. About an hour after the attack, all the guests were back on the dance floor and around the new platters of food, gossiping and having a wonderful time as if nothing had ever happened.

Both Elizabeth and Darcy received many compliments on their proficiency of the deadly arts and thanks for keeping everyone alive. Mrs. Bennet could be heard complaining loudly, “Dear, did you have to cut off so much of my hair? Now I shall have to wear a bonnet for months to cover the unevenness. Why would you do such a thing to me?” To this Mr. Bennet replied, “Then next time, I shall just let you die if you are more concerned for your hair than your safety.” This made Mrs. Bennet momentarily quiet before she decided to complain to a more sympathetic ear.

Mr. Darcy looked at Elizabeth with a newfound appreciation, but hid it well with his cold exterior to escape her notice. Elizabeth was also impressed with how Darcy had handled the large and unwieldy nodachi, but avoided him and surrounded herself with her sisters and their silly gossip.

The Pemberley party was enjoyed by all and viewed as a great triumph for Darcy and his family.
