Pemberley Ball: Epilogue continued

At the sound of the alarm, the Bennet sisters assemble into formation to defend the Pemberley estate from the unmentionables.

Lord Swineberg the 3rd
See!!!! I was right! There were zombies at the ball!

Lady Blodeuedd
Feels like a wallflower as she has spent much of her time at the ball lurking behind a flower. She is horrified by what Lord Swineberg the 3rd exclaims and quickly gathers her belongings while running towards the nearest carriage.

Miss Tabiadora Jensen
Tis true tis true - I am a zombie! I carry the plague! Will hurt but for a moment - then you will feel no pain evermore! Come into my bone gnawing embrace my dears.

I do believe the Duchess de Borde might be able to do me harm - not some Lord Swineberg the 3rd. Pish posh

As for the Duchess de Borde, she takes a fortifying swig from her flask and replaces it within her décolletage and...

*Harumph* exclaims the mildly intoxicated Duchess! First there were waving tentacles to be dodged and now a grim melee of disenchanted dead to be dispatched posthaste.

Of course, by all appearances the valient Lord Swineberg & his rapacious rapier were doing a magnificent job all on their own.

Daintly stepping across a body carelessly placed between her and the buffet, the Duchess popped a cherry between her lips while she studied the rum-cake with a contemplative eye.

Well, as the saying goes 'too many cooks spoil the broth' - thus the Duchess saw no pressing need to offer her services in the depatching department. A tentacle whipped out from beneath the buffet and snatched the last slice of rum-cake.

*HARUMPH* snorted the Duchess as she brought her flask down hard upon the offending alien. Bad manners, no matter how other worldly, were simply NOT to be tolerated!

Pride Prejudice and Zombies
Dreadfully Ever After
by Steve Hockensmith

When we last saw Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy—at the end of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies—they were preparing for a lifetime of wedded bliss. Yet the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful.

Elizabeth knows the only acceptable course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote being developed in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.

Complete with romance, heartbreak, martial arts, cannibalism, and an army of shambling corpses, Dreadfully Ever After brings the story of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to a thrilling conclusion.
