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.
Josias is in the library waiting for Angela and talking to Ernesto about David's future.“I was heartbroken when my son asked to stay.” Josias comments, leaning against the desk.Ernesto clears his throat, “Boss, if you think it's better, ask for full custody of David, just like you did with J.J. Angela Souza is a terrible mother, and that was proved by your stepfather.”Josias smiles. Vernon's news story buried all the reputation Angela had earned in Lagoon City.“Well, if I try, no court or Family Court will deny my request.” Josias smiles mischievously, “The problem is, while I punish Angie, I'm seriously thinking about relieving Katherine.”Ernesto is surprised, “Do you want to share guard again with the other viper?”“What do you think, Ernesto?” Josias suddenly transforms himself from boss to simple friend of the secretary, “Should I give Katherine Bezerra a second chance? Or do you think her current behavior is pure pretense just to marry me?”Ernesto ponders before replying so
Monday. William shows up at his parents' house with the recovered car. One of the headlights is broken because of the crash he gave to Gustavo's car. Yet he honks proudly. Caio is with him in his school uniform.Simeon and Dora leave and smile at the sight of their calmer son.“Son, glad you were able to get the car back.” Dora congratulates him.“When we really want it, we get it,” William speaks strangely as if ownership of the car depends on him and not the police in finding him in the General Hospital parking lot.Simeon brings up the important issue, “So, are we going to have a lawsuit against a certain person?”Dora smirks, “Now that she is no longer engaged to Josias, we can sue her at will.”William, however, frowns and then replies, “That's where the fun was lost. Accusing Angela while she was engaged to Josias would be funnier.”Caio giggles, “You don't get tired, huh, Dad?”“Never, son. Let's go to school before you're late.”William starts the engine, but Dora still manage
Beto visits Rocha Constructions to talk to Josias about the things that are happening.Josias invites him to sit down, “How have you been, Beto?”“Bad.” He grumbles, “Pamela is trying to get Rosemary to the capital. It seems that only now she remembered that she has children.”Josias sits in the presidential chair expressing concern, “That's tough, Beto. If you need help... Remember that I am a client of Damascene Lawyers.”Beto smiles weakly, “It's funny that Miguel has already ensured Little Theo's safety. And Pamela is playing nice by leaving only Pedro with me.”Josias frowns, “Why separate the brothers? Argh, that Pamela was always a nutcase.”“However, Josias, I wanted to tell you something else.” Beto is overwhelmed, “You know Gustavo is working at the supermarket. Mr. Ramos asked me to ask you what you want to do with him.”Josias is curious about the question, “Me? I didn’t understand Mr. Ramos.”“He wants to know if I should fire Gustavo Carvalho,” Beto explains with the det
After Beto leaves, Josias picks up the phone and dials the Rocha Hotel, to his mother's extension.On the other side, Jane answers the phone while Elza is checking some documents, “Rocha Hotel, Mrs. Queiroz’s office, good morning?”“Good morning, Jane. This is Josias Rocha. Can I speak to my mother?”“One moment, sir.” She passes the mouthpiece to Elza, “It's your son, ma'am.”Elza smiles motherly and picks up the mouthpiece, “Hello, my dear son!”“Mom, don't embarrass me in front of Jane. What will she think?” Josias speaks jocularly.Elza also laughs, “She will think my son is lucky to have a mother who loves him so much. How can I help you?”“I'm considering moving Katherine to the secretary position here at the company.” Josias informs her, “Would she accept?”“Would she accept? But I’m sure she will, son!” Elza vibrates, “Especially when it comes to an opportunity to get closer to you.”Josias continues to smile slyly, “Really? I hadn't thought of that...”“Don’t come with that,
But it was too late. Amoreira already knew from the fingerprints left on the steering wheel and William had also been duly informed.The mocking face of the two made Gustavo uncomfortable, “Are you thinking of arresting me?”“Should we arrest you?” Amoreira repeats the question to mock Gustavo and make him more scared, “We happen to find Mr. Fields in the General Hospital parking lot. And you just admitted you were trying to stop a nosebleed.”“If I got in that car, there would be blood on the passenger seat!” Gustavo responds furiously. The survival instinct is in full swing inside him.But Amoreira sits down and lights a cigar, “You mean... if you were going to be in the passenger seat, then someone else drove for you?”Gustavo couldn't take it anymore. Panicked, he claps his hands on Amoreira's desk and leans over him, “OK, no more investigating or interrogating me. I assume the bullshit! It was me!”William was about to protest, but Amoreira gives him a stern look, ordering him to
The next day, Josias is communicating the decision about Katherine to his children and employees.“Guys, Katherine is going to work as a secretary at the company. So do not be surprised by her presence.”Lilian shrugs, “I hardly ever go to the company, so it's fine with me.”“Mom is a secretary.” J.J smiles.“Let's have breakfast.” Josias takes J.J on his lap and everyone heads to the dining room.There, Lilian starts bringing out the platters containing delicious and nutritious options. David chooses peach pieces.“Dad, won't my mom come back?” He asks respectfully.Lilian gulps, "Eat your breakfast, David."“Your mother is not coming back, David.” Josias responds cautiously, “Do you miss her?”“If she stays with that friend, I want to stay here.” David lowers his head and pouts.Josias pats him on the head, “It's okay, son, we're going to be together.”Ernesto is standing in a corner of the dining room, watching the familiar scene.******When Ernesto is at Rocha Constructions, he i
Melissa is talking to Daniel in his office like she's never been on her honeymoon. Daniel narrows his eyes and wonders how she does it.“Therefore, Mr. Oliveira, according to the readers' letters, I think we can adjust the storyline of 'Daniele'...” She realizes that she is being stared at, “Is there something wrong with my face?”“No, pardon!” Daniel straightens, “I just wanted to know how you manage to be so dedicated.” He looks at his computer, “You managed to send me the missing episodes during the honeymoon.”“I took advantage of a computer the hotel had available.” Melissa smiles.Daniel removes the floppy from his computer and returns it to Melissa, “Very good. I hope the trip and the wedding were fun.”“Oh, I sure had a lot of fun.” Melissa smiles dreamily.Finally, she is sleeping in the same bed as Kelvin without offending Alan and Caroline.After that, she gets up and goes to the recording studios.Veronica and her fellow actors are sitting on the sofa in the scenographic l
