To get a PROPER lease you need to think like a woman a few hundred years ago. You'll have to wait until they come to you and then you can't appear to be interested. Actually something short of total disdain is called for maybe even the honest threat that you will go UMO. You will still need to flutter your fan though. That way when you get asked to the ball, you know that they will actually dance with you when you get there. They won’t have your intent and then not follow through with their promises (and don’t forget what your grandmother told you about promises made by men before marriage).
Your best plan of action is to join a group. That way the organization can let society know that you are available without you appearing to be. Maybe they will even have a cotillion so that your assets can be put on display.
Uggh. I thought I should also warn you that if you want to go home with the dashing Chesapeake, you’ll have to dance with his ugly illegitimate brother Twin Cities first. You had better be agile because he is known to step on toes and has even dropped a partner or two.
I for one don’t think that Chesapeake is any “Darcy”, but what can I say, I was destined to a prearranged marriage to the ever illusive Encana long before the ball started. I’ve yet to see his purported charm, but I’m ever hopeful.
My apologies to Miss Austen, but in this story, the love can only be had after all of the clauses are inserted.
There are no “Darcy’s” unless you train them to be from the start. And just like the prettiest woman in the state, if your in the “core”, you’ll have all the attention you need. If on the other hand you are beautiful in other ways you’ll just have to wait until the one meant just for you comes calling. But remember the ugly brother Twin Cities is not anyone’s destiny. I can’t believe anyone would believe he has any appeal.
