Mandy nodded. Michael was one of her oldest and closest friends, the thought of anything between them mucking it up would have been horrible. Granted, Mandy had fancied him for years, but she'd managed well enough to keep her feelings entirely to herself as she truly valued their friendship. Yes, they may have teased and possibly flirted a little, but that's just the way things were between them and had been since they met. "Yeah..." Mandy said softy, glancing down at her hands. "I just -I don't want to risk loosing you as a friend. Our friendship means so much to me. But, at the same time, I can't help how I feel about you." And the fact that maybe they could be so good for each other.
