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.

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?
