Example:

•I saw my best friend´s girlfriend in a party kissing another guy. When she noticed I was there, she challenged me to tell my friend, arguing that he would never believe me and that it would jeopardize our friendship. Then, anytime they come together, she just gives me a sarcastic smile, while I keep telling myself, “Bite your tongue! Don´t say anything at all! He is so much in love with her.”
