Carmen is very shy and a little quiet, at least towards strangers. Zee is the opposite, and she has as vibrant a personality as the colors she wears.
Carmen was bullied all her life and being called ugly.. Zee helped Carmen slowly start gaining more trust in people, have more self confidence, and gave her a little make-over (basically just convincing Carmen to follow her own style and not hide in oversized, baggy clothes).
When Zee and Carmen are together, Carmen forgets to be shy, and she and Zee have a lot of fun, laughing and joking and just having a great time. Carmen admires Zee for being so confident and optimistic, and Zee likes Carmen because she's discovered Carmen has a great and fun personality, and they're both nerds
so, yup... That's pretty much what I have so far.

I can't even say how much I love her XD
I really like how you made Carmen. She really isn't attractive as a girl, and for me, this is what makes her awesome! I'm tired of seeing the "ugly" and lonesome girls in stories being, actually, the most beautiful, but just unconfident and stuff. Sometimes their ugliness are just a pair of glasses :/ Real life isn't so easy, if you aren't lucky enough to be born in the standard of beauty.
Plus, Carmen and Zee seems to be people I would want to be friends with
Sometimes the least attractive people are the sweetest.
Very jelly of your expressions, too!
