Shadow and Maria. Their names sound good together. They had a close relationship, as if they were the type of siblings that fail to fight with each other. Some say they had a romantic story. Those people are wrong.
I think u peolpe r crzy maria and shadow r just firends sh adow even sagte 2 chris that "maria was my only firend" on the ARK... H ere this is easyer. True firendship of the herz is to never b Forgotten bewteen boy and girl!!
I think they had a romance between them cause I saw a Musik video bout Shadow and Maria sent him to earth to protect him from the evasion and he didn't want to leave her. to me, to want to stay with someone special during attack is a very strong bond so I say they hav a romantic relationship!
