Why This Must Be Read: This short story is utterly adorable - a missing scene of sorts after Lizzy and Darcy's engagement, it finds the newly engaged couple discussing what names they should call each other now that they are going to be married. It captures the flirty, teasing tone of the engagement chapter in the book just beautifully.

'Darcy, then,' she said, entertained at the idea of them deciding on her address by its degree of impertinence. 'If one cannot be impertinent to the Mister, it must be taken out.'

'Bingley uses Darcy,' said Darcy, now looking at her, with a smile--such a smile that she was just now getting used to recognize in his face. She had been, she mused, rather blind. 'He is rarely impertinent.'
