So to me, that is what was missing from her exchange with Grumpy. The words were right, but there just did not seem to be any sense of loss or regret. If this was shortly after the “break-up,” as I assume it was, the emotions would still be very fresh and very raw. And I agree with you, there would probably be some impulse to go back and see him again, try to make him see what he is throwing away. There would be anger and hurt and confusion. Grumpy’s Belle seemed way too happy. And by the way, totally out of place drinking in the dwarf tavern! Maybe she just went there because she knew she wouldn’t get hit on, what with dwarves never falling in love!
My responce to RUMPLE is a POT UP THE SIDE OF THE HEAD til he saw thing my way….
