At the school where Rosemary studies, Beto and Teresa entered Principal Fernandez's office, fearing that something drastic had happened to her.They are surprised to find Rosemary disheveled and sweaty, trying to calm down.Principal Fernandez greets them, “Good morning, Mr. and Mrs. Reis. Good to see you again. Looks like we ran into a little problem.”Beto promptly asks, “What happened to my daughter?”Rosemary vents, “They asked me if I was pregnant and I kicked the shit out of them!”Teresa stifles a laugh.Fernandez scratches his bald head, “And that's not all, gentlemen. One of the girls was with her boyfriend and her half-brother, Caio Campos... he sent the young man to General Hospital.”Beto smirks at Caio’s boldness, “That's it? No big deal then. Headmaster, I didn't raise my daughter to be a fighter, but Caio couldn't beat them.”Teresa tries to soften her husband's attitude, “Actually, Principal Fernandez, my stepdaughter has been suffering humiliation from her classmates
At Marçal Publishing, Bernardo and Maggie receive the requested visit from Vernon. He is smiling.“Well, I see that the doting father is aware of what happened,” Bernardo says.“My pup sent his resume? Good! Now it's time for you to accept it, correct?”Bernardo maintains an indifferent posture, “Vernon, we're friends now, but I still haven't forgotten the headache you caused me when you worked here. My company almost went bankrupt because you were provoking and persecuting your enemies using Marçal Publishing as a weapon of war.”Vernon lowered his smile, “But that doesn't mean my son will do the same thing. On the contrary, he strongly disapproved of my attitude years ago.”Maggie reminds him, “That's because he was young and innocent. Now he'll be part of the same jungle as you are. I hope the power and feeling of being the first to break news don't rub off on him.”Vernon shakes his head, “No, I can assure you that my boy will be an example of professionalism and competence. With
A few days passed. Katherine was desperate, thinking Josias would never come back. He didn't call once. J.J. was staying at the Mountain Penthouse because she couldn't bear to look at her son's face any longer and answer that 'his father is coming soon'.That's why, on the next Monday, she made the biggest scandal in the entrance hall with the receptionists and security guards, wanting to enter Rocha Constructions. Officials tried to contain her.“Mrs. Rocha, you’re not authorized to enter in Mr. Rocha's absence!”“LIE!” Katherine screams madly, “Who made up this rule? I'm the wife of the owner of this pigpen, I WANT IN!”Tiago appears with a solemn expression, “I'll take care of her.”The security guards release Katherine and she runs to the financial director, “TIAGO! What infamy is this, why can't I come in?”“What's the point of you coming in?” Tiago indifferently asks, “My master is not here. He is in Rio de Janeiro seeing David again.”Katherine gives a bitter smile, “Humph! He'
In Melissa's office (once Josias's), they both discuss David's future in Lagoon City.Melissa begins, concerned, “Josias, I think it's wonderful that you're bringing your son to live together. Indeed, having the four children together will be an exciting experience. David will no longer feel rejected and lonely.”Josias smiles in assent, “David swears he never felt this way, but you're right Melissa.”Melissa continues, “How is Kate going to take this one though? You know she didn't like it when Alan was at her mansion because he was suspicious of her attraction to Claudio.”Josias breaks the smile, “Are we still having this conversation? I was informed by Tiago that Cláudio Guzman decided to move to Boston. May he be able to rebuild his life there.”“He RAN AWAY because your crazy wife was out to kill him!” Melissa frets, “Let's put it the way it is, Josias.”Josias takes a deep breath, “OK. I'm aware that Kate isn't behaving well. That's why I traveled to Rio de Janeiro, to see if s
Katherine is walking around in circles in the master suite, not knowing what to do with her life.“He left me... Josias abandoned me for his concubine. Why did he do this to me? Am I not better than her, better than Melissa? He didn't need anyone else. And what did Tiago mean by that? How did Josias knew about Cláudio...?”The door opens and Hector appears, “Madam, Boss Josias and his son are back.”Katherine turns to the butler with watery eyes, “Josias came back with my son?”Hector clears his throat and responds with embarrassment, “No, madam... boss came back with young J.J. and young David Rocha.”“DAVID?!” Katherine screams out of tune, such terror as she felt.She dashes downstairs, bumping into Hector on the way.Finding them in the foyer, Katherine explodes, “What is the concubine's son doing here? I want him out NOW!”David glares at Katherine. Josias is equally disgusted with his wife.“Kate, I can't believe I'm going to have to ask your permission to bring one of my childr
Josias and Katherine stand face to face in the living room, outraged and hurt by each other.Katherine is the first to speak, “You are being very unreasonable, Josias! How is it that you bring another child here without warning me, without preparing me for the blow?”“Prepare you for what, creature?” Josias is indignant, “I'm talking about my son! What's so bad about bringing him here?”“It's not exactly him, it's what he represents.” Katherine tries to reason with him.Josias nods wryly, “Oh, I see. Seeing David reminds you of Angie, huh?”“How was the slut doing?” Katherine snarls, “Is she tanned like the brunettes in Rio?”Josias teases her, “Absolutely. She often goes to the sand in Copacabana to get that sexy tan.”Katherine spits fire, “You immoral adulterer!”Josias chuckles, “Kate, I didn't sleep with Angie or plan to bring David back. It was an idea that occurred to me while I was there with him. Angie and her sister are very busy with their non-stop sewing business to grow.
As the days passed, Josias realized that Katherine had indeed behaved as she had promised. She didn't get involved in scandals, she didn't tease or intimidate David, and she never mentioned the name 'Cláudio' again.Josias, on the other hand, noticed that Katherine never confirmed that she was in heat for Claudio nor apologized for this indiscretion. She apologized for the confusion involving Vernon and Gabriela, but as to what started the confusion, she seems to have buried it in the back of her memory so as not to mention it again.But Tiago and Octavio weren't about to let the matter drop. In Josias's office, between one residential project and the next, they made comments about the confusion.“Master, when will Kate publicly recant?” Tiago takes advantage, “Miss Alves has already asked for forgiveness.”Josias smiles slightly, “I need to know how this girl is doing. Could it be that Kate's beating left no aftereffects?”Octavio smirks, “You're pretty worried about Miss Alves, huh?
Josias is at a loss with the accusation that Zedekiah leveled against him and the company.“Mr. Nogueira, the accusation is very serious. Please come to headquarters so we can talk further with our HR—”“I can't! I have to take care of my son who is still lying in the hospital! I'm trying to collect medical bills from Will Campos, but he won't even answer the phone, damn it!”Josias is extremely embarrassed, “OK, I'm going to the hospital right now.” He looks over at Octavio and Tiago and notices their expressions, “I'm sure I'll keep an eye on it, don't worry.”“Okay, we really need to sort this mess out. Bye, thanks!” Zedekiah hangs up.Josias takes a deep breath and finishes the call. He glares at his partners, “OK, do you want to explain to me why I wasn't informed of this?”Tiago clears his throat, “Master, I didn't think the matter would yield so much. It happened while you were in Rio de Janeiro, so we didn't want to bother you.”Octavio adds, “Some girls at school bothered Ros
