Melissa returns to the Mountain Penthouse, still stunned by Bernardo and Maggie's planning. The living room radio is playing “Falling Away From Me” by Korn, but no one is around.She enters the kitchen and finds Kelvin doing the dishes wearing an apron but no shirt. A very sexy and arousing sight that sends shivers down every part of Melissa's body.“Is LCN shooting a romantic movie here?” She jokes, biting her bottom lip, “Because we have the heartthrob.”Kelvin smiles sensually and slowly turns to his beloved wife, “I wanted to help with the dishes.”“Feel free to help whenever!” Melissa approaches him like a panther about to pounce, “And there are people who fear that I am going to divorce you.”“Josias is much sexier and burlier than I am.” Kelvin asserts with a slight inferiority complex.“Yeah, and he has a kid with every slut he sleeps with.” Melissa doesn't let him feel inferior, “It's like he makes me one of the bitches on his list.”Kelvin holds Melissa around her waist with
The next day, Gabriela is resting in the living room of Bernardo's apartment. She had fun with the music video for “Sometimes”, by Britney Spears.Someone rings the doorbell and she yells, “Who is it?”“Mr. Rocha!” Josias answers in a vigorous voice.Gabriela quickly gets up and, still in her nightgown, attends to the sexy tycoon.Josias didn't disappoint Gabriela, wearing a dark green Italian-cut suit and his serious, penetrating gaze was like daggers of passion piercing her.“Good... good morning, Mr. Rocha.”“Can we talk, Miss Alves?”“Gabriela... Yes, come in, please!”Gabriela opens space and Josias enters. She feels like she hit the jackpot!******Bernardo and Maggie visit Melissa and Kelvin at the Mountain Penthouse to let them know that the plan has already started to be carried out.Melissa bounces on the couch, “But already? How did this happen?”Bernardo smiles like a spider, “Josias wanted to talk to Gabriela, so I suggested he visit her at my apartment.”Maggie mischievo
Isabel is at the LCN studios delivering all the content of the 'Love Spins the World' season to the writing team.“Okay guys, here's the core story. You guys do a good job of breaking it down and turning it all into episodes. Unfortunately, grandma here is too old to do like Melissa Mountain...”Everyone laughs.One of the writers praises her, “Mrs. Freire, you will still live many years and with great vigor. Feel free to suggest and revise our drafts.”“Absolutely, that's why I'm the head writer,” Isabel answers good-naturedly.Melissa appears. Unlike Isabel, who will have an entire team of writers to help her form episodes and storylines, she does most of the work in the penthouse and has only two helpers.Isabel notices Melissa with five episodes already finished, proofread, and printed in New Courier, “Girl, I was just talking to the crew about how you manage to do the heavy work yourself. I'm not young anymore. Next year, I’ll be 65!”“And I, thirty-seven.” Melissa wipes her hand
Gabriela is outraged by Josias's proposal. She expected him to declare himself and admit his 'love' for her, or to declare his divorce from Katherine... But he asked the classic 'how much do you want' question!She gets up in offense, “You really are one of those big shots who think they can solve everything with money, huh? If I ask you for a million bucks, would you pay me?”“I would pay you to shut your mouth and stop pestering my wife. That would be a fair reward for the aggression she gave you. She might even admit to Maggiezine that she messed up. However, you also have to admit that you teased my wife about being in love with the swimming instructor.”Gabriela glares at Josias, “Listen well, my lord: I didn't say that your wife cheated on you with him. I didn’t say that your wife had sexual intercourse with him. I just insinuated that she had a crush because Mr. Guzman is indeed an attractive guy. If your wife freaked out and tried to kill me for it, it's because I spoke the tr
At Marçal Publishing, Maggie receives a call from a furious Gabriela, “Hello?”“Maggie, we have problems!” Gabriela exclaims, “Josias Rocha didn’t fall in love with me!”Maggie is shocked, “But what happened? Didn't you wear the nightgown?”“Yes, I have been wearing the nightgown, but he is determined to tell everyone that I deserved to be beaten due to the article!” Gabriela sits on the sofa huffing.“How absurd!” Maggie narrows her eyes, “He wants both Kate and you to own up to their mistake?”“Yes, but I told him what I think to his face.” Gabriela smirks, “I told him that if Kate freaked out over what I hinted at, it's because I unknowingly spoke the truth: she got aroused by Mr. Guzman and is now trying to pose as a faithful and loyal wife by accusing the poor guy of being flirtatious!”Maggie is uneasy, “Oh, Gabi, I don't know if that was a smart move.”“He'll get that in his head and mull it over.” Gabriela responds confidently, “And he looked so sexy in that Italian-cut suit..
The next day, Katherine woke up and stretched slowly on the bed in the master suite. But when she opened her eyes wide......Josias was staring at her, already in his black pinstripe suit.“Honey, what happened?” she asks in a sleepy voice.“Kate, I think it's about time we stopped.”Katherine seems to have become more attentive as she leans against the headboard, “Huh? Stop with what?”“Stop the show we are making.” Josias sits on the bed, “I know very well that there was no harassment. You were temporarily attracted to Cláudio Guzman and begged me not to fire him. When I left the matter in your hands, you thought better of it and dismissed him, but for fear that I might misunderstand you, you made the whole story up.”Katherine is stunned by Josias revealing almost the whole truth, except for a few details...******At Vernon's house, he has just played the tape for Elza. She can no longer eat her breakfast and gets up to throw her plate of toast in the sink.“This is outrageous! Th
Josias corners Katherine in one of the bedroom walls. Her action was virile and truculent, and Katherine's back hit the wall, hurting her.“OUCH! Josias, you're hurting me...”“Don't you think it hurts me to see you getting involved in scandal and confusion when everything could be resolved by telling the truth?” Josias asserts fiercely.Katherine struggles in vain, “Stop it! I already told the truth! Cláudio Guzman is a pervert and I was a fool to defend him!”“On that, we agree!” Josias retorts with gnashed teeth, “I wanted to fire him in my way, but you wouldn't listen and pestered me for days. Now you're the one who goes around posing as more offended than I am. Why?”Katherine feels tears in her eyes, “It's because... I felt like crap...”“After he sexually abused you? You said nothing extreme happened! Why did you act worse than a wild animal toward Gabriela Alves? She's going to sue you and I couldn't reverse it!”“We're going to sue her for the article, honey, we're going to g
Daryl is outraged by Katherine's audacity to subpoena Cláudio, “My friend, this cannot be happening! Many people I know believe that this is all a hoax! You cannot let this woman ruin your reputation!”Cláudio smiles satisfied, “I thought the whole town would support Josias Rocha.”“We support JOSIAS ROCHA, that is the question!” Daryl passionately states, “We disavow anyone who causes him problems, like Will Campos, and now, the wife who isn’t looking to me as worthy of carrying the last name.”“What a troublemaker.” Claudio begins to read the subpoena, “OK, since she wants to be humiliated in public, so be it. Yesterday I gave my statement to Vernon Queiroz, he probably already covered everything in today's article.”Suddenly, Ivan and Amoreira catch up with him.“No, he hasn’t published it yet, which is good.” Ivan retorts.Daryl and Cláudio are shocked.“Mr. Amoreira, Sergeant Moraes.” Daryl greets them, “Good morning. We were talking about...”Ivan's gaze goes straight to the doc
