    I think nobody can know what they are trying to say only by the phrase. Apr 2, 2017 at 18:28
  • The hero (male) saves the evildoer (female). The girl is surprised because he shouldn't have done that as she had destroyed his life. Then the girl says that phrase.

It's just

(Name), you ...
(Name), you are such a ...

with the remaining part left unsaid. There is no common or known hidden meaning in such an expression, and you have to guess her feeling purely from the context. The sentence can imply "You're genius", "You're such a kind person", "You're an idiot" or whatever.

  • Nice thanks!!!!!!!! Could it also be "You are in love with me"?

  • It surely can mean that in a certain context. I don't know if it's the natural interpretation in the story you're reading.

  • when you say "surely" it means it is usually that way? Those words are usually used to say someone's in love?

    @Cool Naruto means 'certainly' by 'surely'. It's not usual.
