At the start of the first series, Nati and Maxi don't talk with each other because Maxi hates Ludmila and Nati is Ludmila's best friend, which didn't make them friends or enemies. They start to develop feelings for each other when Lena, Nati's sister enters the Studio. Lena defends Nati from Ludmila, but when Lena is not there, Ludmila continued to threaten her. Maxi saw the way that Ludmila treats her so he decided to help her become more confident and to believe in herself a lot more.
