A few more days passed. It's time for Angela and Melissa's bachelor party.At the Rocha mansion, Angela went over the details with Lilian.“Lilian, here is the updated list of guests for my reception.” Angela hands him the list.“Reception or party, madam?” Lilian questions her, intrigued. Then she reads the list and narrows her eyes, “Aren't you missing Melissa Campos and her mom?”“No, they were removed from the list and our lives, God willing.” Angela stomps away.Lillian frowns. Ernesto appears next.“What is it, woman?”Lilian makes sure no one else will hear, “Let's go over there in that corner.”They hide behind the stairs and Lilian whispers, “The mistress scratched Melissa and Dora from the bachelor party.”“This can only be bullshit!” Ernesto snatches the guest list, “And I'm not finding Flavia and Isabel.”“And now, what are we going to do?” Lilian senses trouble that the people mentioned are not invited.Ernesto ponders like a problem solver. What to do?******The big pro
Ernesto wastes no time. In Josias's private library, he is watching the stock market and its daily variations in the LCN newspaper. The secretary opens the door and enters, “Boss, I need to talk to you.” Josias smiles, “You talk as if that's forbidden, Ernesto. Come in, you can always count on my attention.” Ernesto closes the door and says in a conspiratorial, sinister tone, “Please, boss, don't fire my wife. If she told me this, it's because she thinks an injustice is happening.” “What injustice?” Josias is more interested, leaving the newspaper in his lap. “Your wife, Boss Angela, said that Melissa, Dora, Flávia, and Isabel were cut out of the bachelor party.” Josias hardens his face, “Call your mistress here at once.” “Boss...” Ernesto trembles at Josias's imposing aura. “Lilian will not be fired.” Josias guarantees using a firm and sovereign voice. Ernesto smiles and leaves the library. Josias crosses his arms in spite. First, Melissa didn't want to go to the wedding. Now
Francisco and Shirley are embarrassed by Daryl and Kelvin's bust on them.“Boys,” Francisco tries to get around the situation, “don’t embarrass your mother.”“We don't want to embarrass you.” Kelvin defends himself, “We want to wish you well and shout ‘we knew it’!”“In case, Maggie knew it,” Daryl adds.The forbidden name makes Shirley jump off the couch, “OK, nobody mention this whore's name! If something is going on between Frank and me, it's not because of her crazy ideas!”Daryl tilts his head to the side, “Mom, you were the one who swore to win Bernie. Of course, if you settle down with Uncle Francisco, Maggie will settle down with her husband.”“I may not get Bernie, but she will lose him too! As soon as I open his eyes—“Francisco suddenly stands up, “Oh no! I came here to talk about love and the future, and I'm hearing hate and the past on the other side. Excuse me, Shirley, forget what I said.”Shirley is dumbfounded, “But you didn't tell me anything!”“Fortunately! Take car
Kelvin is now properly dressed to go out with Daryl. Shirley remains on the couch. The tears have been wiped away, but she is still melancholy. The radio playing Ricky Martin's “Te Extraño, de Te Olvido, Te Amo” doesn't make it easy for Shirley to calm down.“Mom, won't you take the butter cookies?” Daryl asks her, “Josias is going to be hungry.”“I don't even know if I'm going to work today,” Shirley grumbles with her arms crossed.Kelvin approaches her, “Don't do that, Mom. By chance, did we interrupt a declaration of love on the part of Uncle Francisco?”Shirley insists on camouflaging her feelings instead of being frank with them, “What is it, my son? Your mother wasn't thinking any of that. I think when he told me to think about the future, he was referring to our family life.”Daryl doesn't buy the explanation, “I can hear you two talking about love.”“Family love, not romantic love, son.” Shirley is quick to ‘correct’.“So are you going to listen to him and make it up to Maggie
Josias continues to hug Angela to see if she stops the hysteria. How can he ever leave her?“Ready? Have you stopped despair?”“You still haven't answered me.” Angela starts to cry, “That means you're going to leave me. I’m canceling the bachelorette party!”Angela ends the hug and walks away to leave, but Josias holds her arm like a Hollywood heartthrob.“Don't do anything foolish! I didn't say I'm leaving you. The very idea is ridiculous!”“Then why so much concern about bringing your ex into our lives?” Angela frowns.“What lives? It's just a bachelorette party, Angie! Or are you now going to be scared of Melissa? I am not afraid of Kelvin and I invited him to my bachelor party.”Angela wiggles, “Careful, honey. The less we have contact with these two, the better.”“I'm not jealous of Kelvin. If he's with Melissa now it's because I failed as a husband in 1991.” Josias glares at her.Angela can't face her husband, “Lilian must have told you.”“Don't even think about firing her, hone
Alan enters the library where Josias continues to check the Economic information about Brazil and the World.“Dad, how are you?”Josias smiles, “Hello, son. How is school?”“Very good, I'm learning to conjugate verbs. How hard...”Josias strokes the firstborn's head, “You've got to work hard, son. When I was your age I also got excellent grades.”“OK. And the wedding, are we still invited?” Alan suddenly asks.Josias is displeased with the idea, “Who told you you're not invited?”“I heard Angie leaving for work mumbling against the Campos family. I am Campos family, right?” Alan asks innocently, or not.Josias hugs Alan, “You are part of the Campos family and the Rocha family. No one will deny you that, dear son. Your mother has confirmed her presence at the wedding and I demand that it be so.”Alan smiles, “OK, I'm more relaxed. Sometimes I think you and Mom could get back together, especially now that we're back in the penthouse.” Alan breaks the hug, “But I don't hate Kelvin, I lik
Angela gets very upset when she sees more people commenting against her.“I don't believe it!” She closes the door with a bang, “What's going on here, a riot?”Vânia gets up, “Angie, take it easy.”“I won’t calm down!” Angela yells furiously, “Did you all decide to listen to the damn prophecy and interpret it as Uélton wants?”Isabel takes offense, “Don't mention my son, miss! If you are so bothered by this, it’s because deep in your heart you know that you are wrong to marry Josias. He was already married and you sullied their marriage bed.”Angela's eyes widen, “But you're just throwing that in my face now?”Vânia asserts, “We didn't speak before because we were kind and because Josias chose you as his wife.”“Exactly, and you will have to accept me in this company and my husband's personal life! Including my son David, who will be the heir and future president of Rocha Constructions!”“This is not true!” Shirley butts in, “Isn't the future president the eldest son?”“I'll fix it.”
At the entrance of Rocha Constructions, Josias and Uélton want to know what happened to Isabel to be so upset.Uélton takes both her hands, “Mom, please, who upset you? Or do I need to ask?”“Son, her fiancé is right behind you,” Isabel speaks with fear.“Isabel, you can speak without fear,” Josias assures in a firm voice.Isabel looks at Josias, “We had a falling out with Angie. But don't worry, tonight we'll be at her little party.”Josias smiles calmly, “OK. Remember that Ernesto and Lilian will be there to guarantee access for everyone. Excuse me, I need to speak with the Bento brothers.”Josias enters the company. Uélton leads Isabel to the elevator.“Mother, now tell your dear son what REALLY happened.”Isabel sighs in distress, “Son, that woman has gone mad! It seems that she has realized that she has no future with Josias but she wants to force it at all costs! She even said she's going to plan for David to be the CEO of this company.”Uélton is outraged, “This is impossible!
