Becky keeps meeting Christopher in the village, at the school where she teaches, and at her home. Becky cannot ignore Christopher even though she hates him for breaking her heart. Christopher continues to engages Becky in conversations which suggest that he still cares about her. He apologises for abandoning her, and kisses her, much to Becky's confusion.
