Jason and Devan are getting some food at the mall. See if you can figure out what’s going on before Devan does.

Devan:  What’s goin’ on?

Jason:  Where’s our food? I gotta get outta here.

Devan:  What are you in a big hurry for?

Jason:  I kinda want to meet Amanda somewhere.

Devan:  Why?

Jason:  I just wanna see her, you know, hang out.

Devan:  In what kind of way? What do you mean?

Jason:  I don’t know…

Devan:  Do you have a crush on Amanda?

Jason:  Maybe.

Devan:  You do, don’t you!

Jason:  Eh…You wouldn’t be wrong if you said I had a crush on Amanda, I suppose.

Devan:  Well, you know what Beren told me?

Jason:  What?

Devan:  No, I can’t tell you…

Jason:  N-n-no. What did she say?

Devan:  I don’t know.

Jason:  You have to tell me!

Devan:  She said that Amanda likes you.

Jason:  No way!

Devan:  Way.

Jason:  She did? I thought so. I totally thought so. What did she say? Anything else?

Devan:  Yeah, it’s pretty obvious. There’s definitely a love connection between the two of you.

Jason:  Awesome! You think so?

Devan:  I think so.

Jason:  I’m totally going to head her off at the pass. She gets off work in a minute, and I’m just going to, like, grab her…

Devan:  You should go for it. You should definitely go for it because she definitely likes you too.

Jason:  Oh wow! Thank you so much.

Devan:  You’re welcome. This is exciting.

Discussion

It doesn’t take Devan long to realize that Jason has a crush on Amanda. He’s eager to meet her and it’s pretty obvious. Devan also says she’s noticed a “love connection” between them before.

Devan almost blurts out that Beren told her that Amanda likes Jason too. Then she remembers that she wasn’t supposed to tell. But Jason pries it out of her.

He’s really excited and says he’s going to go meet Amanda right away. Devan advises him to make a move quickly.

Wow, everything sure sounds great for Jason and Amanda. Did you ever guess that they liked each other?

But wait, let’s think about this for a minute.

Where did Devan hear that Amanda likes Jason? Beren. Wasn’t Beren wrong about something like this recently? Oh yeah, she thought Marni liked Mason while, in fact, she totally didn’t.

Let’s hope, for Jason’s sake, that Beren’s not wrong again.

What do you think? Are Jason and Amanda meant to be? Will she give up on Mason and go for Jason once she finds out he likes her?

It’s pretty hard to change your way;I mean your heart’s way.But if Amand found out that there’s another lover on the way andfelt that she can take this way , it might work with her.Good luck for her lol.
