Maya has a secret that is not so secret anymore. Meet Maya’s bff, Anthony Nunes.
Yeah. She looks at him that way a lot. That’s the secret, but she didn’t want it to be a secret anymore. Oh, yes… I know you think that Juliana is her best friend, and you’re right. She is her best friend, but Anthony is her bff. Don’t ask. Anyway, like most teenage girls, she didn’t want to come out and tell him how she felt straight up. She wanted him to like her back and be the first to express how he felt, so she dropped lots of hints…all the time. Poor boy.
However, Anthony was not dumb. He knew what she was getting at. He always knew. Don’t get him wrong. He liked her too. They were childhood friends, thick as thieves. When their birthdays came around, he knew they would always be friends, but he always imagined she would spend less time with him and more time with some tall, beefy, pretty boy with perfect hair. As beautiful as she was, he never thought she would go for someone skinny and geeky with no hair like him…but she did! It was exciting that she liked him, but he thought it was happening way too fast and he didn’t know how to tell her. So, most of the time he tried to avoid eye contact—which she did not appreciate—or change the subject.
Oh, yeah…heh, Juliana doesn’t know about these two yet. Whoops!
