Clay Jensen was listening the tapes that he received because he was on Hannah Baker's list.
(In the tapes...........) Hannah Baker got a call from Marcus Cooley for the school event:"Oh My Dollar Valentines!"
"But he didn't answer.He didn't need to. Because at that moment, I saw him... standing right outside the office window.Marcus Cooley."
"Who are you?"(to the phone)
Marcus: "Oh...um...Okay...well...How about Rosie's? You know for ice cream."
"Did he forget?"
" So I walked into Rosie's and sat at the counter. And when you go there, if you go there, don't order right away."
Hannah waits for Marcus at Rosie's.
After 30 minutes , Hannah thought about leaving , but Marcus shows up.
"I thought you were joking about the date. But halfway home, I stopped, thought about it, and headed to Rosie's just in case."
" So there were were, sitting in a booth with our backs to the rest of the diner, laughing. At one point Marcus had me laughing so hard that my stomach hurt. I leaned over, touching my forehead to his shoulder begging him to stop."
