Mason:  Oh yeah?

Jason:  Yeah, you know what? I was talking to Devan earlier today and she told me that Amanda likes me, which is great because, you know, I like Amanda.

Mason:  Really?

Jason:  Yeah! You didn’t know that?

Mason:  Dude, I didn’t know.

Jason:  Oh yeah, I have the biggest crush on her.

Mason:  For real?

Jason:  Oh yeah.

Mason:  That girl’s like my sister, dude. So, you know, treat her right.

Jason:  Oh yeah!

Mason:  Because she’s a special girl.

Jason:  She’s great. I mean, I would definitely treat her right. So yeah, Devan told me that she liked me so I walked her home, and then I kinda tried to kiss her when we got to her door.

Mason:  Whoa, dude. What happened?

Jason:  I don’t know…I usually have a pretty high success rate of trying to make out with ladies, but she wasn’t into it and she said that we should take it slow, which is cool with me, man.

Mason:  She’s a lady.

Jason:  Yeah, absolutely. A courtship. It’ll be delightful.

Mason:  Uh-huh. You got any dates planned?

Jason:  Uh, no. You got any suggestions?

Mason:  You know, man, I’m telling you what, she loves Hot Dog on a Stick.

Jason:  Is that so?

Mason:  I’m telling you! Last time I talked to her about it, she was really excited about it. Kept asking me questions. It seemed like her favorite thing ever.

Jason:  Well that’s weird, but sounds good to me.

Mason:  Yeah.

Jason came over to Mason’s place to hang out and drink some beers. He tells Mason that he recently found out that Amanda likes him. He tried to kiss her and she said she wants to take it slow.

Mason warns Jason to be nice to Amanda because he cares about her. He says that she’s like his sister. Mason and Jason agree that Amanda is lady and deserves to be wooed properly.

Mason suggests that Jason take Amanda to Hot Dog on a Stick. He says that she got really excited last time he talked to her about it so it must be her favorite thing. What he doesn’t realize is that she got excited because she was jealous of the fact that he went on a date with a girl who worked there!

Do you think Jason can actually win Amanda if he tries? How do you think Amanda would feel if she heard Mason call her his sister?

It is wide open to say anything. Yet, Jason and amanda will be closer when she will come to know that mason treats her as a sister.

I'm not sure that Jason can win the Amanda,because it sounds like Amanda not a little feel like Jason.Personally speaking ,i think Amanda likes Mason more.
