She is sorry that she led him on this way. She really did mean to go through with the act but something is in the way. That is ridiculous coming out of the mouth of a hooker but there it is. That is the fact and there is nothing that she can do about it. She is there with someone that she likes and is attracted too and she canít perform and so they have to stop. She likes him and he is funny and he accepts her and that scares her. It is too much. She isnít used to dealing with the emotional in men, only the physical. She canít imagine sleeping with him.
