    Under other circumstances, Emma's route to happiness takes a little longer, and it finds a less conventional conclusion. But some things remain the same.

    “You think I am intimidated by my company; that I can only show to advantage among those I already know, and who have learned to defer to me, as I will not to them.”
    “Emma,” said Miss Knightley, with unexpected warmth, “you must stop thinking every observation of your behavior is a criticism. The ability to adapt to an entirely new society is an acquired skill, and you have never been given the opportunity to acquire it. I would not like to think I have brought you here, only for you not to enjoy yourself.”
    “It is not that I have not enjoyed myself,” Emma said, in perfect honesty. “It is only that the parts of this visit I have most enjoyed are not the ones I would have expected. The countryside is beautiful, though if it continues to threaten rain the rest of the week and we have no opportunity for walking, I will be sorely disappointed. It is more than the scenery, however. Since I left Hartfield I have scarcely spent a waking hour out of your company. You will say we see you at Hartfield nearly as often as we see the Westons; but it is different, and far better, to take all my meals with you, and to have the pleasure of wishing you both good morning and good night.”
    Emma had not meant to say so much, had not known until she said it that she felt so much, and was very nearly too self-conscious to notice that Miss Knightley was struggling to formulate her response. “I am glad to hear you say so,” was all she said, when she did speak.
