But, according to Beren, he’s pretty hot under the collar about the whole thing. However, Jason, who is meditating after a day of Olympic training, seems to think it will be alright.

Jason

Beren:  Oh. My. God. Jason, I have been looking everywhere for you. You will not believe, you will not believe what’s going on.

Jason:  What’s going on?

Beren:  Mason is super pissed. He’s gonna kill you.

Jason:  No, he’s not.

Beren:  Yes, yes he is. He’s gonna murder you.

Jason:  Why would he do that?

Beren:  Because of Amanda, maybe? Ring a bell?

Jason:  What about her?

Beren:  You’ve been hanging out with her, man.

Jason:  Yeah, Mason knows.

Beren:  Are you sure?

Jason:  Yeah, I just talked to him about it.

Beren:  When did you talk to him?

Jason:  Earlier today.

Beren:  What time?

Jason:  Two or so, something like that.

Beren:  Because I just ran into him. I don’t think he’s too happy. He was asking me all these questions, like dates, times, places and I just said I don’t know because I don’t know.

Jason:  Well, he was probably just double checking because I talked to him and it’s totally platonic, the me and Amanda thing. I’m totally not interested anymore, you know.

Beren:  Anymore?

Jason:  Well, I was, obviously.

Beren:  Yeah, yeah.

Jason:  But even if they weren’t together I don’t think I’d be interested anymore, you know?

Beren:  Really?

Jason:  Yeah.

Beren:  Alright, you definitely…cool. Maybe I misread him. Hard guy to read. Maybe I misread him. But he seemed kind of pissed and he did say he was going to kill you. Which led me to believe that he might be upset.

Jason:  I don’t know, I talked to him and it seemed like it was cool. I mean, he might be a little jealous, I guess, but I don’t know. We’re just gonna be friends. It’s fine.

Beren:  That’s cool. Good to know. I’ll leave you.

Discussion

Beren has been looking for Jason to warn him that Mason is upset with him. She finds him meditating and he’s so sure that what Beren is saying isn’t true, he doesn’t open his eyes to talk to her at first.

Of course, she could be right. Jason did have a crush on Amanda, which he even admits to Beren. But he says he doesn’t want to be anything more than friends with her now. Of course, the same might not be true for Amanda, who has been flirting with Jason lately.

What do you think will happen when Mason sees Jason? Do you think it will turn out that Beren was right and Mason will be angry? Does he have a right to be angry with Jason?

i don't think that mason will be angry with Jason because he already knows that he's just Amanda's friend and no more .so I'm sure everything is gonna be OK between them .

Well,what Beren has thought will probably not happen,i guess.Jason made a date with Amanda,that is true.But as a good friend,mason should tust jason,what jason had done is good for him,he is helping mason out of  hard situation.As in the dialogue between jason and mason before,we can make this conclusion.Further more  ,if jason really has a crush on amanda,he will not show it direcly in front of his rival in love.Just believe the true friendship between this two guys.No hurt,no pain,i believe.
