It seems that Juan develop a crush on Chrome. Juan always addressed Chrome to her original name "Nagi" because he said that she should no forget her name and her name was prefect and cute for her.(Or maybe he just despite Mokuro)Always a hero to Chrome and save alot of time. But he does not know Chrome feeling to him. She either blush and run or Mukuro will show up out of nowhere. Juan tried to ask Chrome on a date but Chrome reject Juan because of Mokuro's orders. But there is only two instances that Chrome may have feeling to Juan. First that Juan gave Chrome a silver bracelet as a gift and she was never seen not wearing the bracelet and Chrome taught Mokuro that the bracelet is precious to her. The second on is that when Chrome was about to be hit with the XX-Burner(the enemy deflect the blast) that she whispered Juan's name insteasd of Mokuro's.
