Mrs Bennet was quite depressed
when Lydia and Wickham left Longbourn to travel north to Newcastle. But soon Mrs Philips brought the happy news that Mr Bingley was expected to return to Netherfield in a day or two, and Mrs Bennet became very excited
. She made preparations to invite him to dinner, and counted the days that must pass before she could send the invitation
eg: What do you do when you feel really low and depressed?
However, on only the third morning after his arrival, she caught sight
of him from her bedroom window, riding towards Longbourn House, with another gentleman, also on horseback.
解析：catch sight of 看到、发现、感觉到
If you ever catch sight of Ted anywhere, call the police.
'Girls! Quickly!' she cried. 'Mr Bingley is coming! And who's that with him? It must be Mr Darcy, that tall, proud man. Well, as he is Mr Bingley's friend, we must be polite to him, but I must say, I hate the sight of him.'
Both Jane and Elizabeth felt uncomfortable
, and sympathized
with each other. Jane was nervous about meeting Bingley again, and determined
not to show her feelings. Elizabeth was uneasy
at the thought of seeing Darcy, as she was the only one who knew how much the whole family owed him, in spite of their general dislike
of him. She was astonished that he had come to see her, and for a moment she allowed herself to hope that his affection and wishes might still be the same.
eg:There was an uncomfortable silence in classroom.
eg:He determined that he would travel to New York this summer holiday.
