Carly didn’t think there was anything wrong with going slow. She then dogged out whatever random guy Brad had slept with and Felix told her that his name was Lucas Jones.

Lucas couldn’t believe he had fallen for Julian's lies and ever considered having a relationship with him. Brad wondered if Julian might be innocent since his story was so ludicrous it had to be true. Wouldn’t Julian, a professional, have done a better job?

She explained that they were “in a strange place right now” and didn’t need to hear about this while dealing with AJ’s current situation.

Morgan congratulated her on her engagement and walked off. Luke smirked.

He wandered down to AJ’s room, took his hand and wondered what he would want.
