D?spite the fact that Jane found a kinship in Mr Rochester, her love was betrayed and she has to move on: I forgave him at the moment and on the spot. There was such deep remorse in his eye, such true pity in his tone, such manly energy in his manner: and besides, there was such unchanged love in his whole look and mien – I forgave him all yet not in words, not outwardly; only at my heart’s core. (Bronte?, C. 359-360, Ch. 27). The world for Jane is to be at Thornfield Hall near her loved one, but betrayal forces her to move away. Fat? brings Jane to h?r cousins’ house and also brings a new relationship in her life. Her cousin John Reeds wants to marry her. Consequently, it becomes obvious for the readers that the fundam?ntal fire and passion that drove Mr Rochester and Jane tog?ther is abs?nt in Jane and St John’s relationship.

This poor littl? girl finds lov? and cont?ntment with him, he represents her intell?ctual, spiritual, and ?motional bond.«There was no harassing restraint, no repressing of glee and vivacity with him; for with him I was at perfect ease, because I knew I suited him: all I said or did seemed either to console or revive him. Delightful consciousness! It brought to life and light my who nature: in his presence I thoroughly lived; and he lived in mine.»(Volume III, Chapter 9). She truly loves him.
