A Classical Saturday Trip...

Book Challenge Day 7

Added to Saturday Centus . Check other builders at Jenny Matlock's meme
...her blog off on my tangent. The prompt by Jeff and back to a story of 
any genre in 100 words excluding the prompt in bold. Hope I am forgiven 
for continuing to combine two challenges into one.

 My take on the arrogant and proud Mr. Darcy
The music echoed, the soft sounds of rain drowning in
the cacophony of piano notes Mary created…The sisters
looked on in embarrassment while the rest sniggered;
some openly, some quietly.
 One stood singeing in annoyance and anguish…
paradoxical results of mind and heart. He considered
his presence a worthy gift lost on the country
bumpkins; yet, would regret missing out on those
intelligent, dark eyes which barely spared him so much
as even an angry glance.
Feelings unspoken, unexpressed “…within the stone..."
invisible walls he was forced by social status to strengthen
…her's by sheltered life and misplaced faith in other’s
coloured impressions.

This is the Seventh part of the 30 day book challenge created by Polo
at her blog Acotation Al Margen.
 For reades and writers alike.

The words are so lyrical and flowing. I really like your use of the prompt, too. It's really meaningful. You never cease to impress me, Rek.
Sorry about the Horlicks.
Be well, sweet friend.

I don't know who Mr. Darcy is, but he's playing the game as per societal norms, no matter how hard it gets to feign that arrogance. It's trouble that he has himself opted to take.

Nice post.

Outstanding Rekha !

A perfect viewpoint of the inner workings of an emerging relationship, the trepidation, social dictates and ones heart's desire colliding all because of a pair of fine eyes and a pretty face. Jane Austen would be delighted...loved it !!! ( my fav of her books )

Jo said...

Beautifully done! Oh Mr. Darcy ... sigh ...

Jenny said...

What a great blending of two different memes. Seamless.

Your writing style is just so polished. I'm always impressed when I see what you've done.

Glad you made it this far...would love to hear your take on the words scribbled. A comment every now and then keeps the blues away. :D

Since, crazy Mr. Blogspot won't let me reply to the comments here (is upset with the water ladies ever since they refused to verify visitors)...will do the next best thing, drop in to your blog to say my Vanakkam/Namaste/Salaam/Hello.
