Shelly realised that she loved Bryant so much that she felt able to overcome her noncommittal nature and she proposed one day.
Bryant was not in the least bit interested and coldly rejected her proposal.
Shelly tried to reason with him, and embarrassed as she was, she tried to propose again.
Bryant could not believe she was being so persistent and angrily brushed her off.
Shelly was mortified. How could her love have rejected her so harshly?
