Time passes, and with it, the pain of Uélton's death felt by the Freire family. Isabel and Reuben are still well-settled in the Mountain Penthouse.The living room radio plays “La Copa de la Vida”, by Ricky Martin. Everyone is excited for the next World Cup, this time held in France, and the perspective of Brazil being five times champion.Melissa shrugged about it, “We were four times champions in 1994. Don't you think it would be good to leave the opportunity to another national team?”Kelvin almost has a heart attack with such a question, “Honey, where's the patriotic spirit? No, the more trophies we win, the better!”“OK, I'm just bored.” Melissa smiles.On the couch, Alan and Reuben were checking their sticker albums.“I already have this one of Romário, take it for yourself.” Alan passes him a sticker.“Thanks, Alan.” Reuben thanks him.Melissa looks at the boys and thinks they are brothers.Isabel comes from Melissa's office, “Melissa, thanks again for letting me use your compu
Wallace is saddened when he hears the bombshell. Carmen and Vera don't know what to say at the moment.After a few seconds, Wallace decides to chime in, “Ehr... Any idea about what to do with my nephew?”“He’ll have to stay with his grandmother.” Carmen talks like it's the most normal thing in the world.“And will he never see his mother again?” Wallace scratches his head, “Don't you realize we're practically orphaning Reuben?”Vera decides to opine, “Yes, dear, but what can you do? Flavia is still shocked and hysterical. She is not herself. If she takes care of Reuben in a traumatic state, she could commit suicide with her son!”Wallace purses his lips and shakes his head, “Let's not talk nonsense! We’re not mental health professionals.”Carmen shrugs, “Well, the mental health professionals staying in Victoria have decided to keep her quiet until she recovers.”Wallace grabs his hair, “Oh God, how am I going to tell my mom this?”“Do you want me to go with you, honey?”Wallace nods w
The next day, William's door is slammed. Caio appears in plaid sweatshirt pants and a T-shirt, rubbing his eyes.“Who is it?”“Wallace Freire!”Caio opens the door and Wallace comes in like a hurricane, “Caio, I’m sorry for intruding, but I need to talk to your father.”“He is still sleeping,” Caio answers, worried.“Yesterday the pizzeria was closed.” Wallace isn't asking, he's stating, “So he has every reason to be up early.”Caio raises his hands, “I believe you want to talk about the renovation of the house.”“Or the lack of renovation!” Wallace blusters, “My mother and nephew are still bothering your aunt.”“I'm sure Aunt Melissa loves hosting Mrs. Freire and Reuben.” Caio smiles, “But let’s wake my dad.”Caio turns on the radio and turns up the song “Everybody Get Up”, by Five, to the maximum volume. The song seems to have been written for William.Behold, he appears in the living room with bloodshot eyes, in poorly placed boxer shorts, as he had slept naked, “WHAT IS GOING ON H
In the Teodoro Building, Beto was entering with a small package. He deposits the package on the lobby counter. The radio fulfills its function by playing the song “Never Ever”, by All Saints.Teresa is attentive to the package, “What is this, dear?”“Our wedding invitations. See if it’s to your liking.” Beto responds with a smile.“If it's the way we ordered it...” Vera gets excited and quickly opens the package.She pulls one out. The invitation, made on recycled paper and light green, said in elegant calligraphy that Roberto Reis and Teresa Robinson invite those chosen to their marriage.“A pity that our parents are no longer with us.” Roberto sighs, “But I think the invitation turned out well.”“It turned out wonderful, darling!” Teresa gets emotional, “I hope people accept the location of the ceremony.”“It will be easier for a lot of people.” Beto says, “Shall we start mailing them?”“Yes!” Teresa quickly pulls out the phone book to get the addresses of all the guests.******At
At the police station, Amoreira was about to enter when he overhears the intimate and personal conversation between William and Ivan. He decides to keep behind the door. No one passed through the hallway, conveniently.“Do you want to denounce Josias Rocha, Mr. Campos?”“Call me Will.” William grins like the snake, “Yes, I have a complaint. I'm being forced to rebuild the big-eared house.”Ivan is in shock at the information being thrown out anyway, “Ehr... Who's the big-eared one?”“Who WAS the big-eared guy?” William laughs, “Uélton Freire, the imbecile who left the stove on, allowing gas to leak throughout the house. What was the report from the police and fire department?”Ivan keeps embarrassed, “It was a domestic accident. According to the son's testimony, he lit a lamp, enough to cause a spark that ignited all the gas. An unidentified object hit Mr. Freire, causing his death from head trauma.”“Well then, can you convince Josias that it wasn’t me who killed the imbecile?” Willi
At Crystal Blue, Daryl is outraged by the awkward silence from everyone who speaks to him.“Will Campos still hasn't started rebuilding Isabel Freire's house?” He spits fire, “What is she waiting for? Is staying in Kelvin's penthouse really that comfortable?”Maggie snorts, “Oh, big bro, don't be so nasty!”Diane shakes her head, “You don't seem to like the Freire family.”“I like them and I am grieving the losses.” Daryl justifies himself with a frown, “Yes, 'losses' in the plural because Flávia Freire's non-return is another disgrace in their lives. However, I want to spare our family from getting too involved.”Bernardo crosses his arms, “And what would be more involvement than necessary?”“Did you forget that Melissa gave birth to twins?” Daryl gestures, “She needs to focus on newborns.”Maggie snaps, “There you go with that pure bloodline talk. It looks like that guy with the little mustache back in Germany...”“The difference is that I don't want anyone's genocide.” Daryl laughs
William decided to have lunch at Crystal Blue thinking he was going to celebrate his move against Josias. But as soon as Daryl greets him at the entrance, he realizes something is wrong.“Where is your brother, my brother-in-law?”“He's at home, helping my sister-in-law with the twins...” Daryl smiles devilishly, “And with the Freire family because of you.”William is astonished, “Do you also think that I am to blame for the fire?”“Not because of the fire, but because of the result of it.” Daryl asserts, “Didn't Josias Rocha order you to rebuild their house? Why Mrs. Freire and her grandson are still sheltered in my brother's penthouse?”“It's because I ain’t gonna rebuild any house!” William bravely asserts, “I accept no imposition. They will have to kill me!”“Killing you is no fun.” Daryl retorts with a disdainful expression, “The thing is to make you rebuild the house of someone who received ominous statements from you. And you're getting in Melissa's way because of it.”“It's he
The next day, Josias is in his office at the Rocha Mansion, working from home. He wanted to be close to his family today.But Katherine informed him what she was going to do, “Honey, I have to do an interview with the LCN newspaper about the next property development that you approved. The Business section contacted me after approval from your stepfather.”“It's better to call Vernon my father.” Josias reminds her with a charming smile.Katherine smiles back, “Fine, you are the king.”The landline rings and he answers, “Hello?”On the other side, Melissa is in her office, at the Mountain Penthouse, anxious to talk to her ex-husband, “Good morning, Josias.”Josias immediately recognizes the voice of his first love, “Melissa! How can I help you?”Katherine didn't want to, but something inside her whistled.Melissa responds without delay, “Josias, I need you to talk to Alan. He's being rude to Reuben thinking you were like that with Uélton. And he began to ask him to control his tongue.
