Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
Thankfully, for those of us who actually care about Hero as a person, she comes to her senses mid-sex without letting Leander pop her cherry. Seriously, she just snaps out of it, thinking, "Wait, why am I surrendering my virtue to Captain Douchebag?" In your stupid face, Cupid. She actually grows visibly upset that Leander has been hanging around her tower for so long, as the sun is just about to rise outside. Still, poor Hero can't shake the sensation that Leander is worth boning. As such, she gives him some tokens of affection before booting his ass out the door.
Ultimately, while Leander is still kind of lame, one can't help but feel a bit of sympathy for him: he's head over heels in love with a girl that hates him and/or loves him at the drop of a hat. He's also totally walking out of that tower with blue balls and a full stock. Really, this is all just further evidence that Cupid's a perverted jerk.
