In one summer’s day, before her second year in elementary school, Juliana Baker got new neighbors, the Loskis. Came along with them was their son, the handsome and beautiful-eyed Bryce. The first time Juli saw Bryce, she flipped. She wanted to know more about him. She wanted to be his friend. Apparently, Bryce Loski didn’t like the idea.
Then they grew up and became teenagers. For Bryce, Juliana Baker would never change. She would always be too eccentric and too clever to be a girl. Since the first time they met, Bryce would do anything to stay away from her. Well, his father won’t like it if he got “too friendly” to the Bakers, after all.
Then everything changed. All talks with his grandfather changed his view on Juli Baker. He started to admire her. Her love for her family, the sycamore tree, and all the eggs that she gave to the neighborhood, all of them, fascinated him. He started to think how amazing Juli Baker was. Juli, on the other hand, started to change her view on Bryce too. In a negative way. For her, Bryce Loski’s eyes were no longer beautiful. It was just so empty and meaningless.
Everything Bryce did to her already made Juli really angry. She started to drift away. Bryce was depressed by her actions. He desperately tried everything to make Juli fall for him again. However, all of his efforts seemed meaningless.
The desperate lover boy then digged a hole the girl’s yard. Then he planted a tree in that hole. A sycamore tree. Juli’s special tree. His action got her attention successfully. The girl no longer mad at him. Bryce waved at her. She waved back. She realized they never really talk. They never have a real talk.
