Jane Eyre’s story

Hey guys,

This post should have been written a long time ago but I just kept delaying it so here it comes at last!^^

So…A few weeks ago, my class went to see the movie Jane Eyre (2012) . Since I was sick that day, I saw it a few days later with my mom ( Yup, she just loves those kinds of movies!). It was a bit spooky from time to time: for example when the hidden wife who was imprisoned in a secret cell got out at night to bite some guy or to put fire to the house… Anyway, on a rainy day at school, the teacher asked us to do a writing on the following subject: “Jane Eyre is now a grandmother and her grandchildren ask her how she met their grandfather”. Doesn’t look like it but it was quite difficult, there was not much inspiration at first…I ended up with a great mark so I thought I could share it on the blog:

-“Well…It was a very long time ago. I was nineteen years old back then. However, I still remember the rain, brutally falling on the ground and the mansion’s shadow in the night. I had been called to be a young girl’s governess. The home, from the inside looked very ancient and beautiful. I had never seen such a thing before! That’s when, for the first time I met your Grand-pa. A very strange man we could say. He had just come home from Europe. He was mysterious and intimidating. At first, I did not like him much but gradually, he took over my heart. It wasn’t that easy to admit it; you see, he was a wealthy man while I was just a poor country woman. I tried to hide my feelings for him while I was teaching his pupil.  I suffered a lot during this period and my heart was convinced we would marry some fancy young lady who was said to be his future fiance. Surprisingly, your grand-pa, who had been one of my good friends asked my hand on a summer morning. The following weeks were filled with happiness and joy.  During entire afternoons, we would walk in the fields, under the trees, I would draw him and we would talk for hours. Our love was passionate and true in every way. It felt like a dream, one of those fairy tales I would read with Helen at night when we were hiding from this horrible woman. Life was magical and the future seemed brighter than ever. The day of our wedding, the old house-keeper who was a very brave lady dressed me up in a white silk dress. At that moment, the memories I had from your Grand-pa rushed back into my mind.  I remembered his dark looking eyes on our first meeting, his somewhat grumpy manners and his mysterious questions. He had asked me what my life’s tragedy was and were my sketches came from. He was a very inquisitive man you know!  I would never have thought we would become husband and wife. Regretfully, he was also a man full of secrets, dark secrets he kept locked up… Because of them, we did not get married. I ran away shortly after that, not that I didn’t love him, but because of the pain wich was excruciating. Everything had become too painful and my trust in him was broken! I stayed a few years in a village near your Grand-pa’s domain  and always remained faithful to him. The scars the sadness caused took time to heal… My memories and feelings never stood quiet and loneliness was breaking my heart. In my dreams, this rainy night would come up, the light of spring and our smiles would haunt my heart. I believe Leslie, that in this world, soul mates exist. The love and passion between them can never be put off and survives to every obstacle. Edward was truly my soul mate, my life had to be with him and no one else. When I came back by his side, even thought he had lost his sight in a terrible fire, I realized my love for him had never left my heart. We never left each other since that day and love has filled every year with happiness and joy.”

The end! That was Jane Eyre’s full story in a few lines…Hope you liked it! : )

  1. I was just seeking this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.
