Aria: I know you have feelings for me and I know it is difficult to accept the fact that I will soon be getting married but please for the sake of our friendship, don’t just walk away from my life. Please I beg you Jayce.
Jayce : I have to go and I am sorry because there is nothing I can do about it at the moment. I just hope and pray that my transfer will be granted as soon as possible.
Aria: Jayce please do not do this. I am not sure I will want it to happen this way for the both of us.
Jayce: it hurts so much to see the one person you love, loving another man. I see you here every day, each time you smile, I know it is because of Ryan and each time you are sad, it is also because of Ryan. I think it is time I leave so that you can have the kind of life you have always wished and dreamt of. You will do fine without me since Ryan is about to be on board full time.
Aria: Ryan please, do not do this. We can still be friends even if I get married to Ryan.
Jayce: You see what i mean? You are even referring me as Ryan. Hmmm… the love is THICK!
Aria: I’m sorry! I mean Jayce.. not Ryan
Jayce: Anyway, I cannot remain here while you get married to Ryan. It is time I leave you in peace.
