It’s been a single day and I miss you.
A young man, beautiful as Cupid is painted, in a voice which touched her heart, then said— “Do not, Beauty, believe thou wilt be as unhappy as it now appears to thee. It is in this place that thou wilst receive the recompense which they have elsewhere unjustly denied thee. Let they penetration against thee to extricate me from the appearance which disguises me. Judge in seeing me if my company is contemptible, and ought not to be preferred to a family unworthy of thee. Wish, and all they desires shall be fulfilled. I love thee tenderly; thou alone canst bestow happiness on me by being happy thyself. Never deny me this. Excelling all other women as far in the qualities of thy mind as thou excellest them in beauty, we shall be perfectly happy together.
I want to feel something, rather than thinking about what it would be like to feel something. And yeah, maybe this is crazy. But maybe it’s also pretty brave, too. I love him, and he loves me. I will not be cheated of that marvelous experience. It will not be wasted on me.
Jane, Autobiography of Jane Eyre
Wow. After episode 45 I was a little wary of the way this adaption was going, but this episode could not have been more spot on. Bravo, Jane. I applaud you and your bravery. May you have all the happiness in the world.
I’ve never felt this way about anyone. (x)
