But, Layla rebuffs his advances and the two end their brief romance.
In June 2010, Cristian and Layla engage to marry, and in July, plan to visit Layla's mother Lisa Williamson (Janet Hubert) to share the news.
When Layla shares her suspicion with fellow roommate Cristian, Cristian tells Layla he encountered the two kissing outside of the gym.
At the apartment, Fish arrives home with a bottle of wine ready to celebrate their relationship.
Layla is devastated when Evangeline falls into a coma following a deadly hate crime instigated by Tate.
Tate eventually holds Layla and Vincent, Adriana and Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier) hostage on the rooftop of the Palace Hotel.
After a one-night stand, Layla begins to date Fish but begins believe him to be gay.
