The other girl – friend 1, who is leaving soon – was flirting with him. He broke that off. He asked out friend 2. She responded 10 days later that she’s hanging with friend 1 and asked him to tag along. Sorry, that smells like a friend zone invitation. Friend 2 is inviting him along to make friend 1 happy. He loses nothing by turning her down, not if he’s cool about it. He can always come back the following week and say something like “phew! was swamped with work. finally have a few weeks to catch my breath. you around?” That doesn’t sound like him asking her out again. That sounds like him apologizing for turning her down and asking if he can make it up to her.
