"You were too hard on yourself for that and many other things," Penelope sighed and shook her head in a sarcastic exasperated fashion. She found herself trying to choose her words carefully now. No matter how good of friends they were now, a few years after breaking up, being around Percy was still slightly dangerous territory and saying the incorrect thing could cause her to feel sad that their time together had ended in a way she never predicted.
In order to focus her attention on something else, Penny laughed and shook her head again in disagreement, "I wouldn't say I'm the center of attention. Nor do I need to be the center of attention to have a good time." True, it was exciting for many different reasons, but in her head, the crowded bar couldn't compete with Percy's crowded bedroom.
