    Is this sentnce correct?

    Hi!
    Does this sentence sound natural to you?
    "There came about a bitter feeling between the two sides."
    Is there any difference between " a bitter feeling" and " bitter feelings"?
    Your advice will be appreciated.

    Welcome, 1949.

    'There came about' sounds somewhat archaic - to me.

    a bitter feeling <one shared feeling>
    bitter feelings <more than one feeling>

    'There came about' sounds more like wishy-washy to me.

    What words can we use in place of those words?
