I'm writing a story and the characters have just got to their love confession and I'm trying to think of a specific word to capture their feeling, but I can't remember it.
Character A: "They're not my type. You are." Character B: "Me?" Character A gives B an [insulted] look, "Yes, you."
[Insulted] is where I'm trying to fit the word in.
It's driving me bonkers, because I'm positive there's a word for the feeling of basically being insulted on another's behalf. I've already looked up affronted and indignified, but neither I believe is the correct word.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
