To get out of the FRIENDZONE you've got to shoot your shot...
Mikayla: "He's the guy I was never supposed to fall in love with, but my heart won't listen to reason." 
Taylor: "She's my best friend. I'll do anything to make her smile. Even if it means sitting back and watching her love someone else."
