Point system branch doesn't work, skips over the gem choice

In my current episode, I have the option for the LI to accompany the MC to the graveyard to visit her mom, but whenever I try to view the gem choice (if you don’t have enought points with the LI) it just completely skips over it and goes straight into the scene intsead of continuing the story right after…
Can some help me figure out what I did wrong please?

And just like that she poofed away, leaving me with a million questions.
Why would she accept a price so big, when her life meant so much more than mine?
I can tell she tried, she loved me with what she could but somehow it was never enough, the hurt she caused was more then the love she gave.

My mom never deserved the pain she had to endure, and for now she’s a beautiful soul of broken pieces.
And she lives on in my memories, where her smile is everlasting.
She is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness and being.
I may sometimes forget the words, but I’ll always remember the tune.
And by the end of this, I hope she realize she was the only thing keeping me going in this sad world…

If I didn’t misuderstand, lol. Maybe this is causing the problem? How you have it coded, the ones that have less than 6 points will see the scene; only the ones that have more than 6 are the ones that will get asked if they want to choose the gem choice.
