Twee mooie momenten tussen Emma en Mr. Knightley.
De eerste scene beschrijft het moment dat Mr. Knightley zijn gevoelens voor Emma in bedwang probeert te houden, omdat hij denkt dat zij voor Frank Churchill is bestemd:
He looked at her with a glow of regard. She was warmly gratified - and in another moment still more so, by a little movement of more than common friendliness on his part. He took her hand; = whether she had not herself made the first motion, she could not say - she might, perhaps have rather offered it - but he took her hand, pressed it, and certainly was on the point of carrying it to his lips - when, from some fancy or other, he suddenly let go.'
De tweede scene beschrijft de ontmoeting tussen Emma en Mr. Knightley na de bekendmaking van Frank's verloving. Mr. Knightley denkt dat Emma liefdesverdriet heeft en wil haar troosten:
For a moment or two nothing was said, and she was unsuspicious of having exited any particular interest, till she found her arm drawn within his, and pressed against his heart and heard him thus saying, in a tone of great sensibility, speaking low, 'time, my dearest Emma, time will heal your wound.'
Helaas bestaan dit soort mannen niet meer..... of hebben ze ooit wel echt bestaan???
