Poor Kitty, taking a tumble into the ditch. Shall we see who the careless rider was? We ended last week with: 'She raised her hand, but when he went to pull her toward him, she cried out at the sharp pain in her side.'
And now, to continue:
"I'm not sure," she managed to breathe out and clutched her right side where the pain still radiated.
She finally glanced up at the rider, gasping at the sight of Lord George Kerr, brother of Lord Nathan who was to marry Miss Caroline Bingley in a few short months. She and Lord George met briefly at her sister's wedding breakfast, their conversation lasting only a few short minutes before she'd been called away by Mama.
"Miss Bennet!" He seemed equally surprised. "I'm so sorry for having caused you such undue pain, allow me carry you up this embankment."
Her cheeks flamed with embarrassment. She'd been giddy about the small attention she received from him last November and for months painted a romantic dream around his dark, good looks and storm colored eyes. Now, the fantasy presented itself in living color and she was mortified to be covered in mud and weeds, through no fault of her own.Oh dear...what now?
