The silly man was in her thoughts again. She shook her head. No point in tormenting herself any further. Yet he stayed there, stubbornly latching himself to her heart. How silly was she not to resist? How silly was her heart to embrace his smiling face and remember his rare and silly compliments? She had been a silly girl to trust him, to have faith he would understand.

It was silly to try again. It was silly of her to let him break her.
