Marinette and Adrien attended the same school. They knew each other, and acknowledged each other. But Marinette couldn't help the way she felt about Adrien. His gorgeous blonde hair, those piercing green eyes, and his perfect, dazzling smile. But she knew Adrien would never see her as more than a friend.
Adrien saw the way he looked at her. It annoyed Adrien that somebody was in love with her. But he loved Ladybug, not Marinette, right? There was something so familiar about the girl though, that midnight blue hair, those beautiful ocean eyes, and her genuine kindness towards all her friends. Maybe Adrien was jealous that somebody else was interested in his friend other than himself.
Nathanael saw the way Marinette stared at Adrien. He wished so longingly that Marinette would look at him that way. What did she see in that stuck up rich model anyways? He could be just as charming as Adrien, if only he could stop stuttering around Marinette.
