Pride and Prejudice Volume 3, Chapter 11

Wickham and Lydia leave, and although Mrs. Bennet's spirits are low, the news that Bingley is returning to Netherfield makes her happy. Jane swears that she is indifferent to Bingley's return except that everyone keeps expecting her to be affected by his arrival. Three days after his arrival at Netherfield, Bingley comes to Longbourn, and Darcy is with him. Elizabeth and Jane are both nervous while Bingley and Darcy are there, but Elizabeth is especially embarrassed by the way that her mother gushes over Bingley and is barely civil to Darcy, to whom she unknowingly owes the reputation and marriage of her favorite daughter.

Elizabeth waits to see how Darcy behaves to determine if he still cares for her, but she can tell nothing because he speaks little and looks at the floor most of the time. Bingley, however, seems to still love Jane. Bingley and Darcy accept a dinner invitation to come back in a few days.
