I fell for her, she played along for a bit, she showed signs she didn’t reciprocate, but then I asked her out by text as we became closer friends. I then said I only asked because I felt like I was missing out on January events and that I see her like a sister figure. It was awkward as hell when I saw her, we avoided each other at first but then I spoke to her and asked if she’s ok. That made her semi normal, she at least started talking to me. Then we spoke one to one and we sort of avoided eye contact. Her face lit up with a smile when I gave her a birthday card I forgot to give her 2 weeks ago.
