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?

In Last Chapter , It is mentioned than Amanda love Manson ,While Devon said there was  a love connection between Amanda and Jason . Seem to be conflicting. Let's see what will happen.

Although devan initially didn't want to tell jason about this ,     She  blurted out the  tuth under the Jason's prying it under her . Now It is time for Jason to grasp Amanda. Such like to head her off at the pass .

my opinion is that the meaning of crush is like the word"breach",and if i'm Jason,i thin i'll go to meet Amanda,saying sorry to her
and hope she can come back to me,but if she says she have accepted Mason,i won't blame her,b/s i know how Mason love her,but i still insist on telling
her that i regret not to tell her earlier,although i know she might have fallen in love with Mason,i still wanna she come back,b/s i sincerely love her all the while.

Json is very looser, he has always fear. If he will decide and tell her your feelings, maybe Amanda give him a chance. The women love the wise movements, and specially wheter capture her heart.

    I think Amanda will not accept Jesson's confess because she already fall for Mason , but in another hand Jason is much better than Mason because he doesn't know how to flirt and he doesn't have an wondering eye. But mostly I think first love is important, don't be with anybody is better than be with the wrong one.Wink

I can tell Jason really likes Amanda since he got so excited and was eager to meet Amanda at once when Devan blurted out that Beren told her that Amadnda likes Jason.
