Wallace is mixing mortar for the masons to plaster the walls of one of the rooms. Unlike Uélton, Wallace masterfully operates the hoe.Uélton arrives from behind and has the feeling of being passed over. He looks to the side and finds the battery-powered radio playing “If It Makes You Happy” by Sheryl Crow.“Hey, what's my little radio doing here?” He uses this as a lame excuse to keep bothering his older brother.Wallace continues unabated, “It was already there. I turned it on.”“And who permitted you? The radio is mine!” Uélton complains as if he were a tantrum child.Wallace just smiles and straightens up, facing his younger brother.“What's your problem?”“The problem is that you are masterfully operating the hoe when Josias had to teach me from scratch,” Uélton reveals what's inside him.“I wasn't born knowing that.” Wallace assures him, “I was taught yesterday.”“But how do you manage? You are still rickety after spending nine years in the penitentiary.” Uélton doesn't give up
Jock is at Rocha Constructions finishing his resignation with HR. After that, he goes to Alfred's office to say goodbye.“Mr. Paterson, you deserve to know as Head of Engineering that I will no longer be on any construction teams,” Jock announces.“Are you sure about that, Jock?” Alfred asks calmly.“Yeah. I am filling the vacancy of someone who needs to work as a bricklayer. I decided to stay as a model.”“I saw your double-page picture in this week's issue of Maggiezine.” Alfred winks.Jock blushes slightly. They convinced the newbie to dare in that photo which did not go unnoticed even among men.After hugs and goodbyes, Jock is leaving and finds Katherine working at the desk. She was attending someone.“I will forward your call to the responsible department.” Katherine sees Jock and is temporarily petrified, forgetting to forward the call.“Hello, Kate.” Jock smiles at her, friendly.Katherine wakes up from the memory of the centerfold and transfers the call. Then, she straightens
Wednesday. Francisco goes to the police station to talk to Amoreira. The hilarious detective is once again delighting in Maggiezine and gets scared with Jack's centerfold.“Wow, what is this? Mrs. Marçal is getting bolder, huh? Did Bernardo Marçal allow this double page?” He giggles.Francisco enters his office like a hurricane.“Here you are! By what right do you have to detain my girlfriend?” He roars.Amoreira looks the complainant up and down, “Huh? What are you talking about, sir...?”“Francisco Mountain!” He barks, “I demand that you immediately release Shirley Mountain, my girlfriend!”“She has your last name.” Amoreira jokes, “Isn't she your wife?”Francisco turns red with rage, “She will be, for now, she is my sister-in-law.”Amoreira is bristling with this gossip while Shirley remains in detention.******On the Mountain penthouse, Maggie is more refreshed in the dining room. Kelvin and Melissa notice this while having breakfast.“Little sister, I perceive that your spirit i
Amoreira leads Francisco to the cell where Shirley was awaiting trial. She is disheveled, her blouse torn, and the policemen's fingerprints are still visible on her arms.“SHIRLEY!” Francisco is horrified, “What have they done to you? Did the guards rape you?”“No.” Shirley responds in a voice that sounds like a whisper, “I made a big fuss out of the lobby and the guards dragged me away by force.”Amoreira communicates to her boyfriend, “According to the sheriff who registered the arrest, Mrs. Mountain had the aggravating factor of resisting arrest. For that alone, she could face two months to two years in prison, depending on the severity and the judge's good mood.”The 'judge's good mood' part was added in slapstick by the fun detective.But Francisco gets more desperate, “Shirley, did you resist arrest? As far as I know, the mere nervousness of being arrested does not constitute a crime, unless the detainee resorts to violence. You...”Shirley turns her face to the left and refuses
Francisco and Shirley are now alone. Passing jailers found romantic the sight of Francisco holding his beloved's hands through the bars.But Shirley didn't feel any romantic emotion, just hate and rancor, “I'm going to kill her, Frank. I swear to God that one day I’ll kill her!”“How can you speak God in a promise of murder?” Francisco admonishes her, “Shirley, you need to calm down.”“Calm me down?” Shirley laughs like a witch, “Okay, I'll calm down while I wait to be tried and sentenced to two years in jail!”“You shouldn't have threatened to assault a cop.” Francisco reminds her of this.“I was desperate! Frank, Mr. Bento told me to make it up to Maggie and she didn't even let me in, she told the building's concierge to call the police like I was an intruder! How do you want me to be calm?”Francisco tries to be controlled and rational. He takes a deep breath, “Shirley, this all started when you told the truth. We had sworn we would never tell Bernardo. My brother passed away not k
At Crystal Blue, Daryl was in his office listening to Kelvin's account of his mother.Daryl narrow-eyed opines, “I thought our mom was already spending romantic nights with Uncle Francisco.”Kelvin gets goosebumps in disgust, “Rodrigo and Veronica didn't say any of that. I passed by the coffee shop and found that Veronica reacted negatively, but Jack Motta calmed her down.”Daryl raises an eyebrow, “Did the two of them see each other again?”“Rodrigo said this time it’s for real,” Kelvin adds a smile.Daryl stands up, “Anyway, we need to see our mother. Despite Maggie suggesting I move, what she did was pretty extreme.”Diane enters the office just now, “Good morning, honey! Hello, Kelvin.”“Good morning, Diane.” Kelvin greets her, “You seem to have come in a hurry.”“I came by taxi.” Diane hugs her boyfriend, “Dear, it's confirmed: Roberto Reis will take over his father's building.”“Good for him,” Daryl responds neutrally.“And from what I've seen, he's going to have the help of his
Days later, Josias is informed at the mansion that Moacyr and Cristina intend to move to Victoria. The Barbosa couple visited him.“Guys...” Josias is surprised, “Why do you wanna go so far?”“So far?” Moacyr chuckles, “The capital is not a three-hour drive.”“Even so, I will miss you so much.” Josias hugs Moacyr, crouching down to him, “For what reason are you going?”Katherine and J.J are with them in the foyer.Cristina replies, “We want to be close to Pam to prevent her from returning here to annoy the Freire family. And we have found one medical clinic that can help Moacyr’s recovery.”Josias stands up straight again, “Well, to me, the second reason is the most plausible. Pamela can pack her bags and escape at dawn without anyone seeing her.”“It won't be that easy.” Cristina replies, “Raymond said she's living with him and Junior.”“So her father must be instilling common sense in that hollow head,” Josias comments jokingly, making everyone laugh.“Since I haven't met your daugh
Amoreira is eagerly reading the new issue of Maggiezine. Celebrity gossip and schemes always fascinate him. With a smirk, he turns the page after reading a column.“So that bastard actor was supporting two families at the same time? Who would say...”His office door opens and Bernardo enters.“Good morning, detective. I hope I can count on your help.”“Sit down, my lord. How can I help you...?”“Bernardo Marçal.”“Oh God, you own my favorite publication!” Amoreira shakes the magazine, “Can you give me an autograph?”Bernardo is not one to autograph, but he smiles and gives an impromptu autograph on the cover of the magazine, “Satisfied?”“And a lot, this magazine will be worth thousands of reais. Twenty years later, I will put it up for auction.”Bernardo has even forgotten that he was looking to divorce Maggie.“And then, Mr. Marçal?”“I want you to do a secret investigation.” Bernardo leans forward.“Mr. Marçal, if the matter is urgent, I suggest you look for a private investigator.
