The double wedding between the Motta brothers arrived.The entire Lagoon City was curious about how something like this would occur. Would one pair of bride and groom get married first and then the other, or would both couples be at the altar together?Those who weren't invited, it was left to resort to LCN by Vernon and Maggiezine by Maggie.But Maggie herself wouldn't be busy with her magazine staff, as she was also selected to be maid of honor.Ronaldo was at the entrance of the famous Church of Green Park receiving the guests. But his gaze hardened to something in the distance.Daryl and Diane were approaching and walking up the steps. Daryl was confident in her navy blue tuxedo while Diane was smiling and exuberant in her long, draped gown of the same color.“Mr. Mountain, welcome.” The greeting from the groom's father was not sincere.Daryl shook the old man's hand ironically, “Mr. Motta, let's forget about that incident and have fun. We know that an order from Josias Rocha shou
Some thought not, but yes, there was room for two engaged couples to be at the altar.Women began to wear their handkerchiefs discreetly. Jane and Veronica were barely contained in happiness. Jack and Octavio looked at each other from time to time and smiled as the priest delivered the nuptial speech.Daryl had the strangest feeling that Josias was looking at Melissa too much. Was he winking at his sister-in-law? And Melissa... Was she reciprocating?The viewers of 'Sweet Love' followed the live transmission made on Lisandro's Show. Some wondered why Jack and Veronica weren't the soap opera's super couple. In the plot, Veronica was paired with another actor because Jack joined later.But Daniel, who was also in the Church as a guest, had other thoughts...The priest asked the 'do you accept' questions separately; first to Octavio and Jane, then to Jack and Veronica.Both said ‘I do’ and no one spoke to the ‘forever hold your peace’ part.“With the power vested in me, I now pronounce y
Alan is taken aback when his father informs him that he is moving into Rocha Mansion. Nobody thought to ask if he wanted this?“Father, why do you want to separate me from my family?” Alan asks sharply.“Hey, I thought I was your family too, your father!” Josias replies between giggles.“This is not funny!” Alan scowls, the same as hours ago, “Caroline needs me.”Caroline approaches everyone. Reuben's dress pants are all dirty from tripping over the flower arrangement so many times.“Hello, Aunt Melissa. Your daughter is delivered.” Reuben acts like a 19th-century gentleman, “Hello, Uncle Josias.”“And me, won't you say hello?” Alan asks sourly.“For what?” Reuben calmly retorts, “Don't you want to be my friend anymore? Thy will be done!”Reuben turns on his heel and leaves. Isabel watches her grandson from afar and smiles, understanding that he did well in the confrontation.Josias is satisfied with Reuben, “He is the exact copy of Uélton. As for you, young man, as soon as you get ba
The next day, Alan wakes up in one of the rooms at Rocha Mansion.He is irritable and angry. It wasn't what he wanted. He likes to visit the mansion to play with J.J., but to live in?His mother and sister are across town, and he's not very close with Katherine. He remembers how Katherine got into the Rocha family's lives, causing his parents’ divorce.The door opens and Katherine appears, “Alan? Good morning, young man. Breakfast is ready?”“O really?” He smiles wryly, “I thought I'd have to help with something.”Katherine gets awkward, “You know we have servants and cooks for that, Alan.”“Yes, I forget. In the Mountain Penthouse, we did everything together.” Alan responds in a defiant posture.“Unfortunately, for now, you won't be doing that here, so get used to it. We’ll wait for you.” Katherine loses her temper and slams the door shut.Alan smiles victoriously, “Bitch. You destroyed my mother's marriage and now you are posing as a respectable lady.”Alan gets up, touching the bla
In the days that followed, viewers of 'Sweet Love' learned that Gabriele, Veronica's character, has been diagnosed with cancer and has little time to live. That was Melissa's solution to explain the character's exit.Viewership doubled in size, and LCN once again lamented the loss of talent that turned the drama into profit for the network's pockets.Daniel was tasked with training the remaining actors to, who knows, find a gem in the rough and polish it so that she or he becomes the next LCN sensation.Meanwhile, Isabel remained at an impasse. She was talking to Melissa in her office about it. Melissa's printer was printing the next episode's script.“And what will happen to the character of Jack?” Isabel asks.“He will travel the world as a backpacker.” Melissa responds with a slight smile, arranging the printed sheets, “I hope my soap opera continues next year.”“God and Everaldo hear you.” Isabel smiles kindly, “In the meantime, I am begging the Board to let 'Love Spins the World'
Josias enters Alan's room and is surprised by the mess. The sheets are unfolded, the bed is unmade, there are cookie crumbs on the floor, cans of soda smell bad, and posters of half-naked women on one of the walls.Alan has his back to his father dancing to 'Nice Guys Finish Last' by Green Day. But Josias reaches for the portable radio and firmly turns it off.With the sound cut off, Alan turns around and finds whoever turned off the radio, “Hey Dad, I was listening.”Josias rips off the indecent posters, “Who or how did you get this pornographic crap?”Alan smirks lewdly, “One of my classmates is the son of a newsstand owner.”Josias rips the posters to shreds, “These things are forbidden in my mansion, understood? Don't offend Kate, don't pollute your little brother's mind!”Alan sneers at his father, “Are you mentioning Kate? Who says she wasn't like one of those girls before she met you?”Josias doesn't let himself be taken in by the provocation, “Young man, I've heard a lot of co
A few days passed, enough for Octavio and Jane to return from their honeymoon.Elza and Vernon welcomed the couple at the Rocha Hotel with effusiveness.“Own, my fake daughter...” Elza exclaimed as she hugged Jane, “You must have had fun, I hope.”“Oh, we sure had fun.” Jane blinks.Vernon asks Octavio, “Did any of my photographers reach you in Guarujá?”“I hope not.” Octavio chuckles.Jane breaks the hug and goes back to being the efficient secretary, “OK, let's stop the fun. Mrs. Queiroz, what are the tasks—”Elza makes a face and gestures frantically, “Hey, hey, HEY! What is that? Who said you came to work as a secretary?”Jane is stunned, “Ehr... did I get fired during my honeymoon?”Elza smiles at her, “No, my dear. You got a better job, that's what!”“I don't understand...”Vernon breaks the news, “Jane Motta, you are now the maid manager at the Rocha Hotel! Mrs. Rosalez retired. What do you think?”Jane is pleasantly awestruck. She turns to her husband as if asking permission a
Isabel celebrates LCN's decision regarding her book at Café Montanha. Francisco is obviously very happy for her. The radio fills the cafeteria with “Mujer Latina”, a song by Thalía.“Oh dear, I have never been so happy in my life!” Isabel vibrates, “And you?”Francisco kisses his girlfriend's cheek, “I'm really happy, Izzy. You deserve.”“You know, I thanked Daniel a lot.” Isabel sits down, “He went out of his way to convince the board to respect my decision.”Melissa listens to this but has her doubts. Such a thing could easily be arranged by Josias...Alan walks into the cafeteria wearing his school uniform, “Hello, Mom!”“Alan? What are you doing here? Shouldn't Hector take you back to the manor?” Melissa is surprised.Alan chuckles, “It's so good to see you too, Mom.”Melissa smiles and hugs her son, “I missed you too. So, have you been behaving in the mansion with your father?”“We had an enlightening conversation.” Alan blinks.Isabel, with her back to Alan, hears this phrase an
