Sure, he had gotten a lot softer these days. He has been nothing but kind, gentle, and caring towards her - she will be lying if she says that it reminds her so much of their forgotten past. Of course, she is not so dense that she fails to notice such a thing. However, she also believes that it can only go that far, and she is no longer hoping for more.
Cassidy is done with hoping too much, after all - she feels nothing but tired at this point.
Besides, she can't continue to stay by his side. Knowing that his family is the one that is behind the demise of her own, she can't help but want to escape this place at this very moment only if she can. Everything is so messed up that she can't bear it any longer. It is not just right anymore - they ought to go in their own ways.
