Luke and Tiago have been friends since they were in high school together, for over 20 years. Tiago has even known me for 20 years–my family moved into the apartment building across from his family’s townhouse, and I was the little girl running around the neighborhood playing manhunt, while he worked on his motorcycle.
Luke and Tiago were not good friends in high school. In fact, when Tiago started attending Father Austin he saw Luke as immature and annoying. Luke saw Tiago as overly confident and condescending. But somehow, through trials of fire and special circumstances, Tiago and Luke became the best of friends. They rubbed off on each other in good ways and in some not so good ways (PURE NONSENSE WAYS–which I have had to deal with over the years).
