In what world did Days of Our Lives teen Ciara think telling her boss that she’s in love with him–right after learning his true love had allegedly died–was a great idea?

You would have thought that after he said he didn’t feel the same way, she’d realize how completely inappropriate she was being but not our gal. No, Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) had to continue to hammer at Chad and spew her ridiculous ramblings about how she knows he feels the same way. Her illusions seemed to know no end and it was obvious that Chad, when he was able to actually be present in the conversation, was completely uncomfortable. She kept pushing and pushing until finally he had to put a stop to it.

Chad went on to explain the perfect love he had with Abby and that he can’t move on right now, but even if he could — it wouldn’t be with her. While he called her an amazing woman, and admitted that in many ways she saved his life, he would never be able to love her with all his heart, which is what she deserves. Chad then fired Ciara and offered to give her money through the end of the year. Devastated, Ciara said she doesn’t want his money or anything else from him as she left his home in tears.
