"All this, the innocent flirting back and forth, was normally. Completely normal for us, and it never dawned on me till now. I always wanted to do it, but never wanted it to be weird. I was always told I was an obvious flirter. But now here I am, openly flirting with her, and it's nothing I didn't do before. But she's doing it to. She's not doing anything more different than I am. It's something we always subconsciously did, but now we're aware. That's when we crossed over the line that separates our friendship and something more."
