I must tie it,' Emma said. Emma bent down quickly and broke the lace. Mr Elton, may I go into your house? Perhaps she can give me another lace. Soon they were all inside the vicarage.

Emma went to see the housekeeper and left Mr Elton and Harriet together. Emma talked to the housekeeper for as long as possible. Then she went to the sitting-room. When she entered the room, Mr Elton and Harriet were standing by the window. But after listening to their conversation for a few minutes, Emma was disappointed. Mr Elton was talking about food, not love. John Kmghtley was bringing his family to Highbury for the Christmas holiday and Emma was very busy getting Hartfield ready for their visit.

Mr Woodhouse was a kind man and he loved his family very much.

But he was easily upset and he worried about many things. He worried most about his health and the health of his family. He did not like bad weather and any kind of travel.

He hated change of every kind. The weather was now very cold and the ground was hard and slippery with ice. Isabella - Mrs John Knightley - was very like her father. She worried about her health and her children's health.

Isabella was not as clever as her younger sister, Emma, but she was very kind. John Knightley, Emma's brother-in-law, was a clever and very successful lawyer. But he was not as pleasant as his brother George Knightley of Donwell Abbey. John Knightley became angry easily and he always said what he thought. Isabella was never upset by her husband's behaviour. He was dining with the Woodhouses too. Mr Knightley and Emma had not spoken to each other since their quarrel.

Emma was holding her little niece in her arms when Mr Knightley came into the sitting-room. Emma looked up and saw that he was smiling at them both. Let us be friends again, my dearest Emma. Let us forget our quarrel. I do not think that I was wrong about Harriet and Robert Martin. But I upset you and I am sorry. We have different ideas, but we can still be friends. Only Mr Woodhouse was unhappy. You must all go to bed early tonight.

Doctor Perry is coming to see me tomorrow. He will check that I am well. He can check the children too. We must look after their health while they are at Hartfield. She was pleased to hear that they were both well.

Jane is so clever and so beautiful, do you not agree, Emma? You could be such good friends if Jane lived in Highbury! She is a very pretty girl,' Mr Woodhouse said. You will see her here very soon. Mr Elton and Harriet were also invited to the dinner party that evening. Harriet had been staying at Hartfield, but then she caught a very bad cold.

Isabella was afraid that her children would become ill too. So Harriet went back to the school where Mrs Goddard could look after her. The poor girl had a sore throat and her face was very pale. You are too ill,' Emma said. She has a bad cold,' Emma said. You must think of your own health. He could write her a loving letter He offered to take Mr Elton in his carriage to Randalls that evening and with a happy smile, Mr Elton agreed. As Mr Elton walked away quickly, Emma's brother-inlaw laughed.

Please be careful! He enjoyed teasing his sister-in-law. Mr Elton loves Miss Smith, not me,' Emma said. By the evening, the weather was extremely cold. Mr Woodhouse, Emma, Isabella and her husband were going to travel from Hartfield to Randalls in two carriages.

Mr Woodhouse went in his own carriage with Isabella. Mr Elton sat next to Emma. He was smllmg more and more. He began talking about Harriet's sore throat. But Emma soon understood that he was worried about her, not Harriet. Please tell her to be careful, Mrs Weston. She will listen to you.

At that moment, John Knightley left the room for a few minutes. When he came back, he was smiling. Snow has been falling for some time.

He looked worried and Isabella did too. Will the carriages be able to travel through the snow on the road? He came back a few minutes later. If you all leave now, you will have a safe journey home.

Shall I tell the servants to bring the carriages to the door? Thank you,' Emma said quick1y. Soon everyone was ready to go. Mr Woodhouse slowly got into his own carriage and Isabella followed him.

John Knightley got in too and the carriage moved on. Emma got into the second carriage and she was followed by Mr Elton, who sat beside her. They were alone. As the carriage began to move, Mr Elton took Emma's hand and held it in his own. They are too strong. You must know how much I love you!

Please accept my proposal of marriage and make me the happiest of men! The Vl'C " r h ar was waltmg lor t em with a happy smile. He smiled at Emma all the. Randalls and did not stop praising her. John Kmghtley listened, but he said nothing.

Emma was worried. Did Mr Elton think that she loved hlm? It was impossible. He was talking about hls son, Frank Churchill. His aunt, Mrs Churchdl, lS. But he wlll come this time, I know. She wants to keep Frank with her at Enscombe, if she can. Frank Churchill 'Miss Smith? I do not care for Miss Harriet Smith! She did not know what to say. And I would certainly never marry you. Mr Elton got out of the carriage without saying another word and Emma was taken home to Hartfield.

She did not sleep well that night. She had been very wrong about Mr Elton! He had never loved Harriet Smith. Her friend would soon have to be told the truth.

Mr Elton had never loved the poor girl. But Emma was sti ll sure of one thing. She was glad that Harriet had refused to marry Mr Martin. The pretty girl cou ld make a better match than the young farmer. The Wood houses and John Knightley and his family did not go out to pray in the church. TI,e only visitor at Hartfield was Mr Knightley. Please accept my proposal of marriage! She had decided not to tell anyone about Mr Elton's proposal of marriage. The weather was too bad for Harriet to visit Hartfield and Emma was pleased.

A few days later, the weather had improved. It was. John Kmghtley and his family got ready to leave Hartfield and return to their home in London. Mr Woodhouse wanted Isabella to stay longer, but she had decided to go home.

She was never happy when she was apart from her husban? The young man was leaving Highbury for a few weeks. He was going to stay with friends in Bath. Mr Elton sent Mr Woodhouse his good wishes, but said nothing about Emma. Emma told Harriet the truth about Mr Elton s feelmgs the next day.

Harriet was very upset. The pretty girl cried and cried, but she did not blame43 Emma.

Harriet blamed herself. Mr Elton was a gentleman. He could never love her. She knew that now. Emma invited Harriet to stay at Hartfield.

She tried to help her friend to forget Mr Elton. Mrs Churchill was ill again and Frank could not leave her. The name of Frank Churchill always made Mr Knightley angry. But Frank Churchill could come to Highbury if he wanted to.

He has plenty of money and plenty of time. I heard that the young man was on holiday in Weymouth in the summer. So he can leave Enscombe when he wants to. He should tell Mrs Churchill this. They have given him money and a good education. It is his duty to please them. He has enough time to write long letters to the Westons. He must find enough time to visit Highbury too. Harriet still wanted to talk about Mr Elton and everything in Highbury reminded her of him.

The two ladies lived in a very small house in the centre of 32 33 Frank Churchill the village. The Bateses h ad very little money, so they h ad very few pleasures. They could not download good wine, fin e food or expensive clothes.

They were delighted wh en visitors called on them and they were both very fond of Emma. Emma knew that it was h er duty to visit the Bateses more often. But she thought that the ladies were very dull". O ld Mrs Bates was very deaf". Miss Bates was always talking about her niece, Jane Fairfax, and reading Jane's latest letter to her visitors. On that morning, Emma was tired of hearing Harriet talk about Mr Elton.

So she said to h er young friend, 'Perhaps we should call on Mrs and Miss Bates. The ir lives are very dull. It is our duty to make them h appier. My dear Miss Smit h! What a pleasure it is to see you in our little house! Our dear friend, Mrs Cole, h as just left. She was talking about Mr Elton. How we shall all miss him' He h as such good manners - and such a pleasant smile!

Miss Bates went on. Perhaps you and Miss Smith will have some cake too? Miss Bates soon began talking about h er niece , Jane Fairfax. Everyone there admires her. She dances so beautifully, of course, and sh e is so clever. Yes, we had a letter from Jane this morning! It is so kind of yo u to ask about h er! Now, where is it? Yes, here it is! It is just a short letter, this time - only twO pages.

Miss Woodhouse has given us her opinion about Jane's handwriting. But Mother can always hear what Jane says. Dear Jane speaks so very clearly. It will be delightful to see her again! She was surprised. Yes, Jane will be here next week! And she will be staying with us for three months.

Mother and I are so pleased. Mr and Mrs Dixon have a house in Ireland. The Dixons are very fond of Jane. They all visited Weymouth together - Mr Dixon saved Jane before she fell into the sea! But our dear niece has been ill. Jane caught a cold in November and has not been well since then.

If she comes to Highbury, Mother and I can look after her. Jane is always happy here - as you know, Miss Woodhouse.

Thank you so much for telling us about Miss Fairfax.

He was killed, fighting for his country, soon after baby Jane was born. Before he died, Lieutenant Fairfax saved the life of Colonel Campbell.

Then, when Jane Fairfax was three years old, her mother died and Jane became an orphan. The Campbells gave Jane a good home and a good education and she has lived with them ever since.

She has had a good education and she is clever. She will do well. Emma soon gave Mr Knightley the news that Jane was coming to Highbury. You do not like Jane because she is better educated than you, Emma. She reads many more books and she plays the piano better than you do. She is a very beautiful and a very clever young woman.

It is difficult to talk to Jane Fairfax. I never know what she is thinking. Her aunt talks too much and Jane Fairfax does not talk enough!

Jane was tall and she had a good figure. She had beautiful dark grey eyes and dark brown hair. Her skin was pale and she had a lovely complexion. Everyone agreed that Miss Fairfax was very charming. Emma decided to be more friendly towards the beautiful girl and she soon invited Jane, Mrs Bates and Miss Bates to spend the evening at Hartfield.

But after one evening, Emma's unkind feelings about Jane Fairfax returned. Emma decided that she did not want to see Jane again. She had asked Jane many questions about the Dixons. But Jane's answers were very short and they did not give Emma much information. You are so lucky! Is he handsome? What about his manners and his conversation?

But she refused to give an opinion of her own. The next morning Mr Knightley came to speak to Mr Woodhouse about business. Mr Knightley had also been at Hartfield the previous evening. He began to talk with Emma about her guests.

And you gave us some good conversation. Jane said very little all the evening. She did not answer any of my questions. She is not good company.

I admire her, but I feel sorry for her too. Her life will not be easy, like mine. I wish that we could do more 38 39 was coming to Highbury, not Jane. I am far more interested in Frank. The two girls were the same age and they should have been friends.

We have just killed one of our pigs here at Hartfield. Perhaps we could send Miss Bates some of the meat? You are so very kind! And we have some news to tell you. You will never believe it but - Mr Elton is to be married! Yes, married!

He is getting married to Miss Augusta Hawkins of Bath. We shall all have a new neighbour at Highbury. What do you think about that, Miss Woodhouse? Mr Elton is a fine young man Your grand mamma will be waiting for us.

She will be worried. I think that it is going to rain! Oh, Mr Knightley, are you leaving too? Goodbye, Mr Woodhouse and dear Miss Woodhouse. Mr Elton - marrying Miss Hawkins! She will be Mrs Elton - a new neighbour! It is so exciting! As soon as the rain had stopped, Emma had another visitor. Emma thought that her friend had heard about Mr Elton. But that news would have made Harriet upset. Harriet looked very happy. Who came in?

I could not leave the shop, because it was raining hard. Then Elizabeth came to talk to me and she was so kind. Mr Robert Martin spoke to me too.

Dr No: Intermediate (Macmillan Readers)

Oh, Miss Woodhouse, I was so happy when he spoke to me. Now I do not know what to think. Please help me! It was very difficult for you. But it is over now. You must stop thinking about that meeting. You will never see the Martins here at Hartfield. It may be months before you see them again.

The news about Mr Elton's engagement was a shock for Harriet. She stopped talking about the Martins at once. All her conversation was now about Miss Hawkins of Bath. Mr Elton loved Miss Hawkins, so she must be very beautiful! Two days later, the Westons saw Emma walking by herself in Highbury.

They stopped their carriage and began to talk to her. He will be here tomorrow at about three o'clock. He is staying for two weeks. He arrived a day early. By twelve o'clock the following morning, Mr Weston and Frank Churchill were talking with Mr Woodhouse in the sitting-room at Hartfield. As soon as Emma came into the sitting-room, Mr Weston introduced Frank to her.

Emma saw a tall and very handsome young man who had very good manners. Frank Churchill was also a very good talker. He had ideas and opinions about everything. Emma was soon enjoying his company very much. Do you know them? They are our good friends,' Mr Weston said. You must visit Miss and Mrs Bates. They will be glad to see you. Yes, I did meet Miss Fairfax in Weymouth. She was there with the Campbells. Mrs Bates and her daughter Hetty are very poor.

It would be very impolite if you do not visit Jane. Emma was surprised. She had thought that a young man like Mr Frank Churchill would be interested in the elegant and charming Miss Fairfax. Frank Churchill visited Hartfield again the next day. This time, he came with Mrs Weston. The young man seemed to like his stepmother very much.

Emma was delighted. The weather that day was good. Frank, Emma and Mrs Weston walked in the garden at Hartfield and then they went into the village of Highbury itself. Frank Churchill wanted to see everything and everything in Highbury pleased him. They all stopped outside the Crown Inn. When Frank heard that the inn had a ballroom, he became very excited. He wanted to see inside the room at once. I am sure that there are plenty of young people here who would enjoy dancing at a ball!

They were soon outside the house where Mrs and Miss Bates lived. Miss Bates did not stop talking for more than half an hour! Not well at all,' Frank said quickly. He was not married to Miss Campbell then. Mr Dixon admired Miss Fairfax. And he admired how she played the piano too. Have you heard Miss Fairfax play the piano, Miss Woodhouse? M iss Fairfax plays very well. I do not know what Miss Fa irfax thought about that. You have been Miss Fairfax's friend longer than I have.

I often think that she is hiding something - that he has a secret. His conversation was interesting and amusing. He was charming and he had good manners. Emma enj oyed his company. But she was very surprised when Frank went away the next day. He rode to London, to have his hair cut.

Mr Weston laughed, but Mrs Weston shook her head. Mr Knightley had not apptoved of Frank C hurchill from the first time that he had heard about him. Then he sa id, 'It is just as I thought. Frank Churchill is a silly, spo ilt young man. However, the Coles had now decided to give a dinner They all stopped outside the Crown Inn. Everyone received an invitation except Mr Woodhouse and Emma. Emma had decided to refuse any invitation from the Coles.

But she was angry when she was not invited. Then at last, the invitation arrived. Inside it there was a handwritten note from Mrs Cole. She explained why the Woodhouses' invitation had arrived late. They had been waiting for a screenSl to arrive from London. Mr Cole had bought the screen so that Mr Woodhouse would not feel any draughts in their house. It was a kind thought and Emma changed her mind. She decided to accept the invitation from the Coles. But Mr Woodhouse could not accept the invitation.

He did not like staying out late in the evenings. And meeting large groups of people upset him. But you and Mr Knightley can take care of Emma, so she should go. You will enjoy that. The three old friends all admired Emma's new dress very much.

Emma's carriage arrived at the Coles' house at the same time as Mr Knightley drove up in his own carriage. Now you look like one. I shall be happy to go in with you. Emma went into the house together. Soon afterwards, the Westons arrived with Frank Churchill. The handsome young man looked round for Emma and hurried across the room to sit next to her. Frank Churchill and Emma Woodhouse sat next to each other at dinner too and they had long and interesting conversations.

They were arriving after the meal and would stay for the rest of the evening. Emma was very happy to be sitting next to Frank during dinner. Mr Weston had told her that his son admired her very much. Mrs Cole was talking about her and Emma listened carefully. It arrived in their house yesterday and no one knows who sent it!

It is a beautiful and expensive gift. She saw that Frank Churchill was smiling. You told me that Mr Dixon admired Miss Fairfax. He admires her too much, perhaps. What do you think, Mr Churchill? The wind began to blow strongly and the sea became rough. Miss Fairfax almost fell into the water. Mr Dixon caught her. It all happened very quickly and everyone was very upset.

Then she said, 'This is my opinion. I do not believe that the Camp bells sent the piano. I think that it was Mr Dixon's idea. He sent the piano to Miss Fairfax and she knows it.

Mr Dixon is in love with Jane Fairfax. That is her secret. What else can it be? After the meal, the ladies went into the sitting-room. The gentlemen stayed in the dining-room. They drank wine and talked about business, politics and hunting. They went and sat with the other ladies. Harriet looked very pretty and Emma was glad. As usual, Jane Fairfax looked very elegant. She blushed when someone spoke to her about her new piano and Colonel Campbell.

Half an hour later, the gentlemen came into the sittingroom to sit with the ladies. Then he walked towards Emma and sat down beside her. Frank Churchill was paying Emma Woodhouse a lot of attention. He thought that she was the most interesting person in the room. Everyone saw this. Everyone is so pleasant and I am never bored. When I was in Enscombe, I wanted to go overseas. Now I would be happy to stay with my friends in Highbury for ever!

Frank did not answer. He was looking across the room towards Jane Fairfax. What has she done to it? Those curls53 look very strange. She did not have curls in Weymouth. Is that hairstyle the latest fashion? I must go and ask herl' Frank hurried across the room to speak to Jane and Mrs Weston sat down next to Emma.

What do you think about that? I have made a match between Mr Knightley and Jane Fairfax! And he will certainly never marry anyone like Jane Fairfax. You are not good at matchmaking, Mrs Weston. I am a better matchmaker. Miss Bates would talk about her dear Mrs Knightley all the time! No, I cannot believe that he will marry Jane Fairfax. He knows that Jane loves music. I am sure that he is in love with her.

Emma agreed and smiled and she sat down at the instrument. He stood beside Emma and sang with her. They sang several songs together and then Emma stood up. Miss Fairfax took her place. Jane played and sang much better than Emma and soon Frank was singing with her. He is is making Jane sing too much.

I shall ask Miss Bates to stop her. She will hurt her throat. Please stop her! She hurried across to the piano and spoke to her niece quietly. Jane nodded and stood up. After this, Mrs Weston started to play the piano and the dancing began. Frank Churchill walked with Emma to the first dancing position" and other couples soon joined them. Emma looked at Mr Knightley. Would he ask Jane Fairfax to dance with him?

No, he did not. Emma was pleased. Mr Knightley was certainly not in love with Miss Fairfax! There was only time for two dances and then everyone prepared to go home.

Frank took Emma to her carriage. The evening had made her think about a lot of things. Emma did not think so. But she knew that Jane's playing and singing were far better than her own.

Harriet wanted to go to Mrs Ford's shop and download some cloth. She was going to make a new dress. Emma agreed to go into Highbury with her. She did not want Harriet to meet the Martins again when she was alone in the village. It took Harriet a long time to choose the cloth. Emma stood by the door of the shop and looked up and down the street. Suddenly she saw Mrs Weston and Frank Churchill walking together on the other side of the street. When they saw Emma, they crossed the street to speak to her.

Mrs Ford promised to send the cloth and ribbon in a parcel to Hartfield. As usual, Miss Bates began talking at once. You must hear the new piano. I - we should so like to hear your opinion of it. You play so well yourself, Miss Woodhouse. Mr Churchill said that I should ask you - yes, Mr Churchill.

Is that not clever of Mr Churchill- so kind..

They walked up the stairs and into the little sitting-room. Old Mrs Bates was asleep in a chair by the fire and Frank was sitting at a table. Jane was standing by her new piano, looking at a book of music. Frank looked up from the pair of spectacles that he was holding and smiled. I have repaired Mrs Bates's spectacles.

And now that you are all here, perhaps Miss Fairfax will play for us.

Everyone agreed that the piano was a very good one. Then he said in a louder voice, 'I wonder if your friends in Ireland are thinking of you now, Miss Fairfax.

I am sure that Colonel Campbell would like to see you now with his gift! Frank walked across the room and stood beside her. But after a few minutes, Harriet came into the The Piano As Jane began to play, the young man smiled. They were sent with the piano, I believe. Play one of these tunes, Miss Fairfax. Everything has been chosen so carefully. These gifts were sent with rea l friendship, even love. Jane was sm iling. She had understood Frank Churchill's words very well. He was talking about Mr Dixon - a married man.

Emma understood too. Mr Dixon had sent the piano. I am sure that is the truth! But do come up and see for yourself. Miss Woodhouse and Miss Smith are here. Good morning to you, Miss Bates. Frank Churchill had enjoyed dancing at the Coles and he now wanted to dance again. He wanted to dance at a ball.

Soon he talked about nothing else. One evening, when Emma and her father were at Randalls, Frank had an idea. We can invite the same young people who danced before. We could invite ten couples. He walked towards the door and opened it. If both doors are open, we can use these two rooms for dancing! Emma would catch a cold and so would poor little Harriet. Please, my dear Mrs Weston, do not agree to such an idea! There is a bad draught here.

Those doors should be closed at once! No one said anything more about the ball that evening. The next morning, Frank was at Hartfield to talk about the ball again.

The young man smiled happily at Mr Woodhouse and Emma. We will have the ball at the Crown Inn in Highbury! Everyone would catch a cold! The rooms at the Crown are larger than here at Randalls,' Frank Churchill replied.

That is very dangerous. Everyone would be very cold. They would become ill. It will be better for the carriage horses too. They will not have so far to go. You know how careful she is. Please let me take you there at once. The ballroom at the Crown was a good size and there was another, smaller room. This room could be used by the older people who wanted to play cards. Candles will light the room.

No one will see a little dirt. Men never worried about things like dirt! It is not too far away and there are no draughts. We need Miss Bates! Mrs Weston and Emma walked through the rooms and talked about the arrangements for the ball.

Before they all left the inn, Emma promised that she would dance the first two dances with Frank Churchill. Mr Weston looked at his wife and smiled. If I were thinking of marrying him, I would be a little worried. But he is my friend. If he is selfish, I do not care. The Church ills agreed that Frank could stay in Highbury for another week. Even Jane Fairfax became excited. I hope that nothing stops our plans!

He never danced and he hated the idea of a ball. Emma decided that Mrs Weston was wrong. Mr Knightley could not be interested in Jane Fairfax. And then a letter arrived from Enscombe in Yorkshire. Mrs Churchill was ill. Frank Churchill had to return home at once. Dr No. Upper Macmillan Readers. Dogs - The big show Macmillan Children's Readers.
