He knew her for being so kind that she's angelic - in and out, and she doesn't really make fun of others out of malice. But perhaps, there are just some things that she can't deal with using the same attitude. He was only mostly aware of her condition at work before, but he didn't have a good grasp of what was truly going on inside her own home.
Nevertheless, Cassidy is one who acts with a reason. Whether it is mainly driven by emotions or not, there has to be a strong enough cause to draw out such a strong reaction from her.
"How long were you here, by the way?" Cassidy inquired before going around the unmoving brunette and standing right in front of her.
"H-Huh...? Ummm... H-Half an hour... I think," Olivia answered reluctantly, confusion written over her expression.
"Say, is half an hour enough?"
"Was half an hour enough to make you realize how harsh the world could be? Knowing you two, you probably haven't even spent an hour of suffering before. Maybe, you should've taken more time."
"Y-You... A-Are you saying that we should suffer like this longer-"
