Uélton gets up and strokes his wife's hair.“Don't worry, my love. That evil woman will do nothing with it. Unless she wants to lose everything she has achieved so far.”“The mansion, the title of Mrs. Rocha, the bastard's paternal acknowledgment...” Flavia nods, “Yes, if Josias knows she's against you, he'll send her back to the Capital.”“Yes, so she becomes friends with Pamela and Vera Reis.” Uélton jokes.Flavia also gets up, “Sometimes I wonder if these two have found normal jobs or are acting like prostitutes to make ends meet.”“Beto tells Josias that Vera Reis 'works' as a striper in an illegal nightclub, where clients force her to get drunk, use drugs, and have sex with her. So she is no more than forty.”Flavia shakes her head, the subject is unpleasant for her, “Anyway, honey, let's forget about these whores and mind our own business, okay? Our son is turning nine and he needs his dad there more than ever.”Uélton and Flávia exchange a light kiss.******At LCN, Veronica me
Daniel is surprised to see Veronica Montanha enter his office flanked by Melissa and Isabel.“Are the best writers I have bringing in a future star?”Melissa accepts the compliment, “Thanks for the compliment. Daniel, Veronica is looking for an opportunity in the soap opera world.”Veronica and Daniel shake hands. Daniel's smile is very wide.“Okay, I'm flattered to see you look up to LCN.”“I want to honor the broadcaster in my city,” Veronica responds.“Have a seat, ladies.” Daniel gestures and the three women sit down.Melissa takes the floor, “Daniel, I'm not sure about letting Veronica on my soap opera because we're waiting for the answer about the renewal for the second season. But in Isabel's case...”Isabel concludes, “There is a character that will be perfect for her.”Daniel nods, “Well, it's no mystery to anyone that 'Love Just Happens' will be renewed for a third season. So I agree with Melissa. It will be safer to include our dear Veronica in a show that we already know w
At Marçal Publishing, Bernardo and Maggie talk affectionately about an internal article dedicated especially to them and Henrique. The photo of the baby about to turn one year enchanted countless readers.“Our baby will grow up to be a beautiful boy.” Bernard admires him.“Yes, and so I have to buy a carbine.” Maggie gets off his lap.“Why a carbine?” Bernardo raises his eyebrows, “To teach him how to shoot?”“No, so I can shoot sluts who'll want to hook him.” Maggie crosses her arms.Bernardo laughs, “Then start saving enough ammo. According to our readers, Henrique will displace Jack Motta.”“Schi!” Maggie calls for silence with her index finger to her mouth, “Don't mention the forbidden name!”Bernardo stops enjoying himself, “Why? Who forbade it?”“When we mention the forbidden name, my mother appears out of nowhere!”Bernardo stands up indignantly, “Maggie, we walked away from her precisely so you can stop thinking about this bullshit.”Suddenly the door opens, “But that's where
Carmen and Cristina are unsure whether to let Dora in. They've long thought they shouldn't fraternize with the Campos family because of William.However, Carmen nods and Cristina risks opening the door, “Hello, Dora!”Dora is ready to demolish the walls and barriers, “Good afternoon, Cristina! I came to see the new mother and the new resident of Lagoon City. Can I enter?”“Of course, come in and make yourself comfortable.” Carmen passes by.Dora addresses Carmen, “Hello, dear. Have you mastered the art of breastfeeding?”“Yes, Dora, thank you so much for coming.”Dora sits on another couch, “I think we need to talk about a topic that is making me upset.”Cristina cleverly asks, “Why are we going to talk if it upsets you?”Dora doesn't get the word out, “No jokes, Cris. Looks like you already know what it's about. When we wanted to throw a party to celebrate Melissa and Kelvin’s engagement, obviously Daryl invited Diane, who invited you guys.”It's Carmen and Cristina who get awkward.
Dora's crucial question takes Cristina and Carmen by surprise. During the silence between the two, the radio plays “Waterfalls”, by TLC.As the owner of the theory, Cristina decides to assume, “Dora, the Chaves family saw fit to get away from you after the embarrassment we went through regarding Pamela trying to have full custody of Caio.”Dora is shocked and gaping, and then voices, “What? Why did you decide to walk away? It was Pamela who came up with the whole idea!”“And William is desperately looking forward to getting back in touch with us?”“Ehr... not him, but William isn't the full Campos family. There's Simeon, Melissa, my grandchildren, and I... we miss you and we don't hold a grudge, Cristina.”Carmen is forced to admit, “Though Tiago warned you.”Dora giggles, “Oh, I imagine. Tiago is a devoted friend of Josias and, in an instance, ends up being our friend as well. Guys, let's break down these barriers and get back to what we were.”“Are you sure, Dora?” Cristina wants to
Dora crosses her arms upon learning that Pamela's evil plan came out of Cristina's pure head.“Cris, this can only be bullshit.”“I'm sorry, my friend!” Cristina comically drops to her knees for Dora, “By the time I was informed that William was causing problems with drinking and call girls, I didn't think twice.”“You know the work it took us to try to convince him to stop self-destructing...” Dora says, “We thought he was going to get this AIDS thing the TV can't stop talking about.”“Well, if William has repented and returned to being a good father to Caio, I'm satisfied. And I hope they can forgive me one day.”Dora asserts, “They'll only forgive you if they never find out that you came up with the plan!”“And then will you tell them?”Dora is suspenseful as the soap operas she watches, but then smiles, “The secret will be safe with me.”Carmen and Cristina relieve themselves.“Thank you, Dora.” Carmen thanks, “We hope in time to get back together like we used to be.”“Now I wante
The next day, Dora is mopping the living room floor while humming the song “Lifted” by Lighthouse Family. Simeon passes her and likes to see his wife calm.“How nice to see you in a good mood, my love. Did something happen? Will found another decent girl?”“I think that will take some time.” Dora giggles, “I talked to Carmen and Cristina yesterday. We were right, honey, there was no christening for James on the day of Melissa and Kelvin's engagement.”Simeon gets upset, “And what did they say in their defense?”“They were embarrassed to show up because of Pamela.”“Oh, but what happened wasn’t—”Dora stops cleaning and smiles, “Here we have to be patient, my love. The idea came out of Cristina’s mind.”Simeon is a little upset, “Now I understand their guilt.”Dora smiles again to smooth things over, “Finally, we forgave each other. Pamela is no longer with us and Cristina learned her lesson. We will be friends again and everything will be fine.”Dora opens the door for the wind to dry
Jack and Veronica were talking on the phone. She was very excited about the interview she had at LCN and is buoyant with hope.“Jack, you needed to see that dark, hot director! I think I could fall in love with him, so he would give me major roles in LCN soap operas!”Jack takes it all as a joke, “Why don't you fall in love with him sincerely?”“Well, you know the perfect marriage between famous people only works in the commercials we shot,” Veronica speaks irresponsibly.Francisco enters the room and turns on the radio. The song “Alright” by Supergrass makes their apartment even more lively.“But you can be the exception, having a perfect and lasting marriage with Mr. Oliveira." Jack hints.“No, I prefer to leave the doors open for now.” Veronica implies that she wants to marry Jack.But Jack doesn't take the hint, “Okay, mate, I'm praying for you. Now I have to go, they found a replacement for you at the agency.”“Who's the bitch—” Veronica realizes that Jack has already hung up. Sh
