She tells him he was being sweet and charming and making her fall in love with him all over again. She told him that seeing him and Carly together again only reminded her that he will always be a part of Carly’s life and she will always be an outsider. She says this has forced her to make a decision. He says well today when they were together they were having fun. She says she just can’t let herself feel that way again so from now on she can’t see him again, not anymore, then she walks out.
