Mason sits down next to Amanda and she tries to cuddle with him a little. Mason is surprised and she backs off saying, “We’re friends.”

He begins telling her about a date he went on with a girl named Hilary who works at a hot dog stand. Amanda jokingly asks if she’s a hot dog, meaning, “Is she attractive?”

Mason says that she is and he begins to describe her. He says he likes her hair, but for some reason Amanda asks if he said she’s skinny. Could Amanda be insecure about her weight? That would be crazy! Look how thin she is.

Then Amanda tells Mason that even though he likes Hilary, he shouldn’t call her. It’s terrible advice. She’s trying to sabotage Mason’s relationship with Hilary. But Mason trusts her and says he won’t call her.

What do you think is going to happen to Amanda and Mason? Do you think he’ll ever notice that she likes him? Have you ever liked someone who didn’t realize it? Watch this soap opera unfold every Tuesday right here on Ebaby!

I think it is enough for Mason to realize that Amanda likes him. He seems to be poor in this kinds of thing. :)

Wow, Oh my gosh. It is a difficult topic to talk about. I saw that Amando is so crazy for Mason, but he is just thinking about another person. Auch, it really hurts.

I don’t have any word to say because it is difficult. I think she should talk with him and say I love you, and go for it. 

Hope she feels better after hear it.

In fact Amanda loves Mason. And when woman want …

01:15 PM Aug 19 2012 |




Each woman is a bit of jealous. In this video, it is quite clear that she wants to put Mason off Hilary. I think she goes well on it.
