Marni and Beren haven’t seen each other in a little while so they’re doing a little catching up, when, of course, the topic turns to romance. Specifically, Mason and who likes him.

You’ll recall from last week on the Ebaby! Soap Opera that Amanda is pretty much losing her mind because she likes him so much. And remember when Devan told Beren that she likes Mason and Beren told Devan that she heard that Marni likes him too? What is going on here? Does everyone like Mason?

Listen in as Beren puts Marni on the spot.

Marni:  So have you been going out much? Any shows or anything?

Beren:  Um, a few shows…It’s so funny. I keep on running into Mason and then I always see Devo not far behind. Devan’s around a lot.

Marni:  Mmm interesting.

Beren:  But I have to know. Are you and Mason, like, together?

Marni:  No!

Beren:  Are you sure?

Marni:  Uh, yeah, I’m definitely sure. Why?

Beren:  No, I just was wondering. I don’t know. I just heard a rumor…it’s unsubstantiated, but I heard…that you like Mason.

Marni:  What? Are you serious?

Beren:  Yeah! What’s wrong with that? Why not?

Marni:  I mean I like him, he’s great, he’s a great guy, but I don’t like him like him.

Beren:  Why not?

Marni:  Well I just…I don’t know…He’s not my type. But…

Beren:  Jason?

Marni:  N-n-no. No, but you know what I think…I’m not totally sure, but I think Amanda likes him.

Beren:  Amanda and Mason? This is perfect. This is perfect.

Marni:  I kinda like it too. She’s great. He’s, you know, quirky. I think…

Discussion

When she goes out, Beren tends to run into Mason, and when she runs into Mason she tends to run into Devo, which is Devan’s nickname. Devan is following Mason because she likes him. But Beren heard that Marni likes Mason too. So she asks her point blank if they’re together.

And the answer is a resounding no. Marni says she thinks Mason is cool, but that she doesn’t have feelings for him.

Interesting. Where did Beren hear that Marni liked Mason? What else could she be wrong about?

In any case, no one could be mistaken that Amanda likes Mason, which Marni knows from talking to her. She and Beren agree that Amanda and Mason would make a good couple. What do you think?
Why do you think Beren was wrong about Marni liking Mason? What’s going on here?

i think arrange a hall or something like that. then call everyone jason, mason,amanda, dave etc. and ask them whom they are looking for? definitely will get the answer.

Wow! Who really loves who? I’m a little confused. Let me think about it. Devan likes Mason and so does Amanda, whereas Marini doesn’t like Mason like that. Am I right?
