Alexander (Alex) Leonard Lane has lived next door to Gemma and Harper for the past ten years. He has unruly dark hair, tan skin, broad shoulders, and strong arms. Gemma has never thought of Alex as crush-worthy... until recently. Alex can often be found playing video games or with his nose stuck in a book. He's a little shy at times, but Gemma encourages him to be more adventurous. Alex is much taller than Gemma is, almost towering above her, and his muscled frame makes her feel safe. His eyes are a deep mahogany that convey warmth, kindness, and loyalty.
