People Are So Impressed By These Teens Who Truly Supported Each Other In Class

"Lean on me, when you're not strong."

Meet 18-year-olds Benjamin "Luke" Dyess and Shemar Gyce. During the fall semester, they were in the same US history class at East Texas Baptist University.

During one particular nap, the teens found themselves in an incredibly intimate situation. THIS.

"At first I was sleeping on the desk and he lied his head down and I lied my head back and I wasn’t on his head and I guess my head ended up further back," said Shemar.

"I didn’t really know him that much, but I found out his name during the semester," said Luke.

Roger Strand, 19, who told BuzzFeed News that he knows the teens better than they know each other, captured the moment.

He said that he decided to post the saved Snapchat pics on Monday because everyone was tweeting about finals.

The teens said that the memory of the nap's ending is hazy. “I don’t remember it exactly. But it was most likely a silent agreement like ok — I’m good," said Luke, the nap's foundation.

"I think I woke up before him," said Shemar.

Only Shemar had seen evidence of the nap before it went viral. "I didn’t know it would ever resurface," said Shemar.

"I'm shook that [Roger] would do me like this," he wrote on Twitter.
