optimism

She was not someone who seemed like much of an optimist. And yet, she had been completely taken in by his
wild declarations.  

When she discovered it was not real, those intoxicating things he said and believed, she was surprised to find – it hurt – 

and then later, she was surprised to discover herself, a secretly hopeful person, an optimist in stealth battle with cynicism, clinging to humor as a shield.
