[I’m back! I finished my taxes and so hope to get moving on this project again. Hooray!]
As the Aged reads the paper out loud, Wemmick has to occasionally save him from catching his hair or the newspaper on fire from the nearby candles. Wemmick sits very close to Miss Skiffins and slowly inches his arm around her waist. (Wemmick is making his move!) As he does this, his mouth slowly spreads into a wide grin. She quietly removes his arm and places it on the table beside them. This happens several times as Pip watches on and listens to the Aged read. They all have a warm drink and Pip notices that Wemmick and Miss Skiffins drink from the same glass. Maybe they’ll get married?
