Eventually, Sybil runs out of ideas and has no choice but to pray that nothing bad happens to him.

    Sybil: I hate myself.

  • Chapter 59. Sybil admitting to herself she loves Branson.

  • Chapter 108
    Sybil: This is the cruel game Love plays. And in all honesty...I'm just too exhausted to play back.

  • Chapter 109. Branson's letter to his dead cousin Martin about the deceased William.

  • Chapter 128. Branson mentally begging Sybil to finally give him an answer, any answer, to his marriage proposal.
    Say it, Sybil, please…I need to hear it. I know how you feel, I can see it in your eyes, surely you can see it in mine. But let me hear the words too, please—

  • Chapters 134-135.
    • Branson mentally saying goodbye to his coworkers.
    • Sybil and Branson's angst over their failed elopement. Then their reunion.

How well does it match the trope?
