Is it me, or does the first visit of Elizabeth to Pemberley; Mr. Darcy’s house, portraits an unexpected erotic scene? I remember when I read Pride and Prejudice for the first time, the description of this exact scene; the first sight of Pemberley where Elizabeth slowly progresses through the park, keenly anticipating her first view of the house, captivated me. It tickles in a away that you can’t apprehend.. The presentation of Pemberley is evoked in a manner that captures a sense of eroticism in Austen’s description of Elizabeth’s feelings towards the house and, of course, its owner.

The description in the novel goes as this:

“Elizabeth, as they drove along, watched for the first appearance of Pemberley Woods with some perturbation; and when at length they turned in at the lodge, her spirits were in a high flutter.
The park was very large, and contained great variety of ground.
They entered it in one of its lowest points, and drove for some time through a beautiful wood, stretching over a wide extent.
Elizabeth’s mind was too full for conversation, but she saw and admired every remarkable spot and point of view. They gradually ascended for half a mile, and then found themselves at the top of a considerable eminence, where the wood ceased, and the eye was instantly caught by Pemberley House, situated on the opposite side of a valley, into which the road, with some abruptness, wound. It was a large, handsome, stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills; — and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal, nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place for which nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste. They were all of them warm in their admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something!”


This passage, possibly, includes an erotic suggestiveness. This description masks what is really going on underneath. The anticipation and excitement of the revelation of the house has almost an erotic flavor. Elizabeth gradually ascends from the lowest point to the top of a considerable eminence upon which Pemberely suddenly becomes visible. Austen’s choice of details, the rising ground upon which the house is positioned, the swelling stream in front, and the warmth Elizabeth feels upon its appearance, makes this among Austen’s most sexually charged descriptions in the novel. And the house, of course, is the reflection of Darcy himself, preparing us for Elizabeth’s change of mind/feelings towards him. Pemberly is revealed to us as if it’s being undressed, slowly unveiling a full view of the magnificent place in its naked beauty. Elizabeth is breathing heavily through shock and admiration; and the house, to put it crudely, becomes an erection in both senses of the word. The house and the owner, Mr. Darcy, as being one and the same, reinforced with Mrs. Gardiner suggestion “perhaps the beauty of the house renders its owner a little less repulsive”. The connection between the house and the man is made explicit now. 


It’s extremely interesting to read between the lines and to go beyond the literal meaning of words of such a reserved writing such as Austen’s.

A person can’t service with a pain in his heart and I’m one of them. Pain is all over me, starting from my heart and spread to my lungs then my ribcage after comes my liver and stomach and passes through my large and small intestines and covers my both legs and my legs consists of thighs, knees, ankles, and toes. Then it goes back to my upper body.. My both arms and hands and fingers, then rises to my neck and up to my face, lips, nose, ears, eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows, till my brown reddish short hair!! That’s the pain that makes me cry from the inside, instead of having tears on your cheeks, I have them under my eyelids. I truely feel sorry for my brain and I don’t blame him for going crazy an not think straight when I want him to!! But there is only one thing that I want to tell him… 
Dear brain and dear heart,
Thank you for not giving up on me, thank you for still focusing and understanding what I need and want, thank you for believing in me and digesting every shock I faced in my life. You my friends are doing a big favor for me, and that favor is something that not even my soulmate can handle!! What I’m trying to tell and explain to u is that I love u both and I’m proud to have u both in me!!

Sorry it’s been a while! Life’s been a bit too hectic! _______________________________________________

After that day at Sara and Bader’s it became a ritual. Go home. Do homework. Go to their house.

I was closer with them than ever. Especially Bader. It became the point where I have to stay more than 5 hours a day or something or I.. I don’t know I’ve never tried being away from him that much. I know, intense. Honestly, I had the time of my life with them even though all we do it talk and play. We were so comfortable with each other and knew each other so well that by the fifth month being that close we began finishing each other sentences. He was the big brother I never had. My friends kila yi6afrooni and tell me how perfect we are with each other but I guess the idea of him being my “older brother” stuck. And by that fifth month, I knew everything about him down to the kind of underwear he uses (weird conversation that was…), the fact that we both loved karaoke and also our deep love for alternative music.

Today was the last mid-term of this year; I walked in our house so smiley and happy because it was easy AND winter break’s finally here. I was about to walk in my room when my phone beeped.. I saw it and it was from Twitter indicating that someone mentioned me.

@Bader12: @MeznaAl KIDDD! Did you hear the news?

@MeznaAL: @Bader12 Nopppeee! Whats going onnnn?

@Bader12: @MeznaAL: Go find your parents then come over :D

I did as I was told. I walked in the living room and kissed my parents forehead.

“Haaa shisalfaa?”

“Ukhh mamidaaccchh yaya tis2ileeeen!”

“Baba!!!”

“Inzain inzain haha, binsafir landan this winter break!”

“9IJ BABA!!!! AHHHH!!! Ya3nee bakoon ib landan on my birthday!!”

“Eeee 7abeebty”

“Bess laish Bader mishta6?”

“That’s the other best part”

“Shinu?”

“Their family is coming with us”

“YAAAAY WANASAAA!!! Thank you babbaaaa”

“Yallaaa roo7ay 3induhom”

“Thank youuuu”

Couldn’t believe it! Kint a7in 7ag London min bidayat il sina and now we’re finally going! WITH MY BEST FRIENDS!

*calling Kady*

“MEZNAA KALBA”

“Hahaha hawwww shsawaaait!”

“Laish matdegeeeeen tiseleeeeeeeen?”

“Kady 7abeebti intay tawni shayfitich bil madrisa..”

“Haha fine! Whats the news Bader was talking about on twitter?”

“Yal stalker”

“Chub… Abi a3arif what the beautiful couple are saying”

“Cham mara agoolich! STOP CALLING US THAT”

“Well you guys are beautiful together… Even though you’re not together haha”

“Chubbbb!”

“Kafich.. don’t come to me in a few months telling me how much you love him cause I’ve been telling you for MONTHS now!”

“Metaphorically, METAPHORICALLY! If I like him IFFFF!!! Whats good that gonna do? Ill be depressed over the fact that we both will never be together.. SO WHAT GOOD IS THAT GONNA DO?”

“This is all metaphorical right?”

“Kadyyy”

“Fine fine! Inzain whats the news?”

“Binsafir! Kilnaaa!!”

“As in you, Sara, Bader and the parentals? WHAT GIVESSSSS!!”

“I KNOOOOWW!!! Kady laish matiyeen ma3ana?”

“Ta7lifeen? T3rfeen my parents law shinuuuu!”

“Cant you trryyyy?”

“Mezna… haha chub:) wainicchh?”

“Im home!”

“Mara7 itro7een bait Saroon?”

“I’m going over there now”

“Hahaha saaayyy hi to lovvvaaaa booyyyyy!! OH LETS DO DINNER TOMORROW”

“Bader and I are friends.. nothing more and okaaay!”

“Mmmhmmm ok byeeee see you lovvvee!!”

“Byeee”

I closed the phone, quickly ran to my room, changed my clothes and started walking over to Sara and Bader’s house.

@Bader12: @MeznaAl: get your ass dowwwnn here woman!

@MeznaAl: @Bader12: I’m walking over right noowwwww! 2 minutes!”

@SaraAl: @MeznaAl: YALLLA @Bader12’s KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god he started singing.. Get your stupid tanned ass here”

@MeznaAl: @Bader12: Kill my bestie and Ill kill yooouuuuu!!! IM WALKING THROUGH THE DOOOOORRRR!!! And @SaraAl you can’t deny your brother’s amazing voice!

@Bader12: Oh my god @MeznaAl is finally here… ALL IS GOOD IN THE WORLD!

@MeznaAl: @Bader12: Stop exaggerating I was half an hour late hahaha

@Bader12: @MeznaAl: Whatever…

“Did they tell you? Did they tell youuu?”

“Did I ever tell you how annoying you are?”

“Yeah but you love me anyways:)”

“Yeah you wish.. Haha yeah they did tell me!!!! IM SO FREAKIN EXCITED!” I yelled then punched his arm. The he have me one of his favorite looks.. the “wtf man?” look. Hahahaha hilarious!

“Dude? Whaaaaah?”

“HAHHAHAHA oh my god hahaha im dying”

“DUDE FINALLY! I thought he was gonna go insane!”

“Ullaa ullaa shd3waa!”

“I missed my girlfrienddddddd” I froze.

“What did you just call me?”

“Uhh what?”

“Did you just say girlfriend?” I’d be lying to say that my heart wasn’t skipping beats. Wtf? Wtf? Wtf? Whats going on?

“Oh you know.. a friend who’s a girl..? Wow I do not pull of ghetto talk do I?”

“haha,” I laughed nervously, “you don’t at all”

After that tiny awkward moment, we want to Sara and Bader’s parents and just hung out with them talking about the trip and how excited we were. I was talking animatedly to 3ami Jasim when I realized Sara and Bader weren’t in the room anymore, I excused myself and left the room and headed towards Sara’s room when I saw Sara whispering to Bader with a stern look on her face and he just look down with a sad smile.

I hid beside the door but I couldn’t hear what they were saying but all I did hear from Sara was, “you’re both idiots, maybe that’s why you’re also perfect for each other, c’mere” they she hugged him and they started walking towards me. Shit. I have to hide. Dammmiittt!! OOOHH THE PLANT! I hid behind the huge plant and all I can think about this moment is how awkward I must look. This is awesome.
