Would you lie to get what you want?
Surely, if you’ve been following the soap opera here on Ebaby!, the thought has crossed your mind that Devan might have lied.

Let’s look at the facts. Devan likes Mason and so does Amanda. But Devan told Jason that Amanda likes him. And you saw their date last week. It sure doesn’t look like Amanda likes Jason.

So what’s going on? Did Devan lie to Jason as part of her plan to win Mason? Watch Marni put Devan on the spot.

Marni:  I, I want to ask you something and I hope…I just want to ask you and I hope you’re not offended, but I just feel like I need to know. This whole Mason and Amanda thing. Did you…

Devan:  What about Mason and Amanda?

Marni:  Well, we’ve sort of figured…We realized that there was some miscommunication and that you told Jason that Amanda liked him but in reality we realized that she actually likes Mason…

Devan:  Yeah, but isn’t it working out? Aren’t her and Jason, like dating now? That’s what I heard.

Marni:  I don’t think so…

Devan:  So she still likes Mason then?

Marni:  As far as I know, yes. Well, what I was going to ask you is, did you, like deliberately kind of plant misinformation…

Devan:  What?

Marni:  I just had to ask you…

Devan:  Why would I do that? I don’t understand why I would do such a thing.

Marni:  I don’t know that you would. I’m just asking because it’s kind of interesting the way things are working out but I just had to ask. Sorry, I just gotta ask.

Devan:  You know, I heard that her and Jason are getting along really great. I think they should really pursue that. Do you really think that Mason and Amanda are a good fit? I mean, Mason and Amanda or Jason and Amanda. What makes sense?

Marni:  I…It’s all about feelings, right. I just had to ask to see what you…And I’m sorry if I offended you, I don’t think you’re that kind of person, I was just wondering because I know how you feel about Mason and…

Devan:  I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Marni:  Okay. Sorry. Alright. Let’s just drop it.

討論

When Marni gets Devan alone on the fire escape, she takes the opportunity to ask her if she lied to Jason.

Devan says that she really did think Amanda liked Jason, and even if she got confused and told him the wrong thing, they’re dating now so everything is OK. She says she doesn’t know why Marni would think she would do such a rotten thing.

Marni says that doesn’t know for sure that Devan did anything wrong, but that the situation sure is strange. Devan says that nothing is strange, that Jason and Amanda are together and make a good couple. When Marni finally says that Devan likes Mason, Devan pretends she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

What do you think happened? Was Devan confused or lying? Have you ever been unable to tell if one of your friends was lying?

I think Devan lied, Because He liked Mason. He wants Mason to have misconception of what is happening between Amanda and Jason. So Mason can keep hes eyes away from Amanda.

I think that Devan lies, because she loves Mason and she wants Amanda to be with Jason, in order to win Mason. =)

I don't know if Devan lied to Jason so far…but I believe she felt bad when Marni tried to ask about it. Oh,the situation is getting worse? Love triangle…Where's Mason??

lie or not is nothing, what we should concern is why she told lies or just tended to.Everybody has something that donnot want others know ,so ,sometime we have no choice but to lie.If God can forgive cheating,why we can’t?

lie or not ,it's not  so  important, the key thing is  why she lied or just  tended  to  , everybody  has  something  that  donnot  want  others  to  know, If  God  can  stand  cheating ,why we  can't?

I think at first when Devan told Jason that Amanda liked him ,she was really confused and not deliberate.But now when she talks to Maran,it seems that she doesn't like to hear about Amanda and Mason.She pretends that she doesn't know what Maran is saying but it's obvious that she likes Mason. No matter it's a lie or she is confused.It's all for love….
