  10. self-conscious

    He felt self-conscious, realizing that he, too, had that look.
  11. petulant(ly)

    I think I’d like that,” Lily said petulantly.
  12. bewilderment

    He probably should have brought up his feeling of bewilderment that very evening when the family unit had shared their feelings of the day.
  13. awkward

    He knew him, of course, since they had always been groupmates, but they had never talked about the boys' accomplishments because such a conversation would have been awkward for Benjamin.
  14. mischievous
