Question, did Adrien hesitate when hooking up Nino and Alya? I know he'd want his best friend to be happy, but did he have any second thoughts cause of Chloe?
Lucky Us, Chapter 6
Adrien: *casually* If you must know, I am trying to hook Nino up with an entertainment reporter.
Chloe: Ugh. Sounds like they’re perfect for each other already.
Adrien: *passive-aggressively* It was love at first sight! For him. Possibly for her, too, *hinting that there’s still time to stop it* but she doesn’t know it yet.
Chloe: *immediately deflects* Adrien, the hopeless romantic thing was cute when we were kids, but you have relationship experience now. It’s okay to admit that love is a sham and sex isn’t that great.
Adrien: *genuinely* I will pray for you, Chlo.
Chloe: *a brief moment of emotion* Whatever.
Adrien is a sneaky guy. Nino having a crush on someone else is an opportunity to shock Chloe out of her stupor and make her say something. But Chloe proves that she is more stubborn than Adrien could ever hope to break through.
I can’t say that he hesitated because he had ulterior motives from the get-go. He wished for an outcome that Chloe refused to let happen. In the end, he couldn’t meddle any more than that.
