He's not about to turn a blind eye on this newly recognized will of his - to never let it get to the point where Cassidy has to shed a tear again, that is. After all, he's already this greatly affected just by her heartbreaking display earlier. He can't imagine how much more he'll lose himself if she is to break down in tears.
This entire thing isn't really supposed to be about what he thinks or feels, though. Regardless of how he responds to this situation, it's her who truly matters.
Cassidy is the one Adrian should really think about this time around - not himself nor anyone else.
He knows that she doesn't deserve any of these heartaches, especially since he's the only remaining one between the two of them who's hanging on this marriage. She had already proposed divorce loud and clear before, but because of his selfish reason, he didn't agree. To add to that, he kept her by his side even though he didn't really love her.

At the very second he shouted her name, he heard Cassidy shrieking from a distance. Taken aback by how horrified she sounded, he then picked up his speed and sprinted all the way there.
It had only been a few minutes since she left him at the bus stop, but she already managed to get that far. Somehow, that gives him the impression that she's really in a hurry to get out of there.
"Cassidy...!" Adrian called out once more as soon as he reached where he thought she was.
But then, Cassidy isn't there.
