Before If Only
The Death Factor
Alex is one of Jonah's best friends. The two of them met on a tackle football team in elementary school and have been friends ever since.
Alex and Jay were introduced to each other by Jonah when they were in seventh grade. The two of them clashed a lot at first, but became really good friends over time
Zayn is one of Alex's main rivals. The two of them met on the middle school football team. Their rivalry started almost as soon as they met, since Alex viewed Zayn as a major jerk. Since Zayn was viewed that way, he played the part pretty well, only making the rivalry worse.
