Elza is afraid to pass the call on to Melissa.“Seu Everaldo, this is Josias Rocha's mother. You prophesied a wonderful future for my son, and I am eternally grateful. But when you say that my boy will cause Kelvin Mountain's displeasure... I like Melissa and would like her to remain my daughter-in-law, but she is determined to marry the other young man.”Everaldo listens patiently and then responds, “I understand perfectly, Mrs. Queiroz. However, I have known your son since 1980, and I guarantee you that he won’t be as happy with another woman as he was with Melissa Campos. When I said that the two of them would be happy at the end of 1994, I thought it was clear that this did not include the intruders.”Elza pales, “And what will happen if Kelvin marries Melissa? Will he die? Will God punish him?”Maggie accidentally comes up from behind and overhears the conversation. She becomes apprehensive and covers her mouth with both hands.Everaldo chuckles, “Mrs. Queiroz, you should know th
At the same Church in Green Park, all the guests are crowding in for the big day.Diane is not sure if the location of the ceremony would not evoke bad memories in Cristina and Moacyr, especially when Tiago drove by in the exact place where the accident took place.But Cristina and Moacyr were not disturbed. Both have wide smiles on their faces. Everyone loves Melissa and wishes the best for her.Josias parks his car and notices that Melissa has already arrived. She is probably waiting in some Church compartment. Francisco is standing next to the car talking to a volunteer gardener.“Mr. Mountain.” Josias greets him, “I believe Melissa is ready.”“Yes, and very happy.” Francisco smiles, “She got a call from that Everaldo saying that no one will be cursed.”Josias smiles, “That's good. I wanted to know this personally. Now it's up to me to be happy.”Only then does Francisco notice the absence of the “future” Mrs. Rocha, “Where is your bride?”“She didn't want to come,” Josias responds
All guests are present at Green Park Church. Shirley addresses Francisco but stops for a few seconds to admire her brother-in-law's elegant look. Francisco is wearing a gray vest under his tuxedo and has a small artificial flower in his pocket.Francisco also scrutinizes his sister-in-law and admires the brown, ankle-length, slightly belted dress. Shirley was wearing makeup in a style that made her look younger.“Did you consult makeup tips from your daughter’s magazine?” Francisco asks gallantly.“No way, it was your daughter who helped me.” Shirley comments without losing her temper, “If I were up to Maggie, I'd come here in rags.”“Well, let's think about Kelvin and Melissa's happiness today.” Francisco looks at the altar and observes the groom.“Frank, you can go up to the altar now, it's time.” Shirley points to the altar and walks away.She catches up to Simeon and Dora, “Mr. Campos, you can fetch your daughter.”Dora comments, “Shirley, you can call us by our first names. I tho
Outside the church, the volunteer gardener watched a 10-year-old car pull up awkwardly on the sidewalk, violating traffic laws.Gustavo and Angela run away. Gustavo was still wearing casual clothes while Angela tripped over her black dress and high heels, wanting to run as fast as possible.“Calm down, Angie! If you trip and fall, I'll laugh, huh?”“Shut up, Gus! Help me, I need to get to the ‘Forever hold your peace’ part!”Gustavo, instead of hurrying, freezes his steps, astonished, “Why do you want to interrupt the ceremony? I thought you wanted to talk to Josias!”Angela rolls her eyes impatiently, “Just help me, Gus, JUST HELP ME!”Gustavo snorts but takes Angela's arm to help her not fall.When they climb the stairs and enter the nave, indeed, it is in the part that Angela wants.“And if anyone knows of anything that could prevent this beautiful couple from coming together, speak up now, or forever hold your peace.”Everyone was reassured that nothing would happen, until...“I O
But before the newlyweds came down from the altar and received the rain of rice, Josias turned to Angela who was waiting for him and pulled her by the arm again out of the Church.“Let's go away from the holy ground so I don't get punished for swearing!” Josias speaks through gritted teeth.“Honey, what's going on?” Angela still tries to make a fool of herself, “Why are you treating me this way? I thought you would be happy with my presence!”“HAPPY?” After they walk away and reach the parking lot, Josias lets go of her arm, “What do you mean? You don't show up here when I wanted to, and then decide to come with another guy and make a scene on top of that?”Angela rages, “I wouldn't have come if that minx hadn't said on camera that you were fair game!”Josias realizes that it was Katherine, “OK, and now you've made a point of appearing in front of the same cameras paying the biggest embarrassment and favoring public opinion for the other!”“No honey, I still love you!” Angela tries to
Vernon gestures and exclaims to all the journalists and Lisandro Torres, “HEY, EVERYBODY HERE, HURRY UP! MY SON CANCELED HIS WEDDING!”Like a swarm of bees, all the journalists and Lisandro ran like crazy after this juicy news!Angela, however, removed her high heels and ran away to avoid being humiliated by the media. She met Gustavo who couldn't stop his nosebleed.“What happened?” He speaks in a slurred voice.Angela grimaces as she sees the red waterfall running down Gustavo's fingers and staining his shirt, “Argh, let's go to the General Hospital before you pass out from so much blood you've lost!”“And your fiancé?” Gustavo insists on never doing what Angela asks right away.And that's why Angela gets impatient and tugs at him, “Let's get out of here now, or I'll leave you there bleeding to death!”“Idiot Will Campos crashed into my car!” Gustavo whimpers instead of leaving as soon as Angela had asked.Angela huffs and does the unthinkable: she sees that William's car had the ke
A few days passed. At William's house, Caio approaches the telephone that rings incessantly.“Hello?”“Hello, can we speak to William Campos?” It was a male voice.“It's my father, who wants it?”“Municipal Traffic Department, young man.”Caio puts the mouthpiece on the dresser and goes to his father's bedroom door. As he knocks it, he announces, “Dad, there's someone from traffic wanting to talk to you.”William opens, totally hung over from recent events, “Who? From traffic?”Caio shrugs and seems like he doesn't understand.William goes into the living room in just his boxers and answers the phone, “Hello, William Campos speaking.”“Do I have the privilege of speaking with the illustrious soccer player Will Campos?” The male voice becomes excited and amazed.“Yes, who speaks?” William rubs his eyes with his free hand.“This is from the Municipal Traffic Department. We located your abandoned car in the General Hospital parking lot. Can you take it out of our depot?”William smiles i
William is at Ramos supermarket talking to Beto about what happened.“Beto, they found my car abandoned in the General Hospital parking lot!” He exclaims excitedly, “Why did I never think to look for it there?”Beto chuckles, “The more we are desperate, the less we think about the more obvious options.”William is still standing, “Can I go to the DMV to get it out of storage?”“Yes, go there. You will definitely have to fill out a lot of paperwork and formalities.”William rolls his eyes impatiently, “Argh... I'm glad the driver's license was with me. If I knew the address of that Gustavo...”Beto narrows his eyes, “What's that guy got to do with it?”“I suspect it was him. I was so desperate to save my sister that I left my car keys in the ignition. And I hit the rear of his jalopy. Is it a coincidence that when he and Angela ran from the journalists, they ‘mistaken’ and got into my car instead of theirs?”Beto smiles from the corner of his mouth and nods, “These people are trouble.
