On Tuesday, Vernon is trying in vain to tie his tie in his bedroom. His cell phone rings. He goes to the dressing table to answer it and sees that it's Josias's number on the caller ID.“Hello, Josias! How can I help you so early?”“Vernon, did João Paulo return to Victoria?” Josias is still lying in bed, leaning against the headboard and with the blankets covering him from the waist down.“No, he slept here like a little angel.” Vernon smiles, “Why?”“Bernardo said he left the premises of Marçal Publishing in a hurry. Looks like we already got a disagreement.”Vernon breaks his smile. Elza enters the room and listens to the conversation from here.“My son quit his job?”“No, he just left unsatisfied according to the security guards at the entrance.” Josias soothes him.“Let's talk to him.” Vernon responds firmly, “Bernie did us a favor by hiring João Paulo, we're not going to let him pass up this opportunity.”“Thanks. Let's leave things in peace.” Josias smiles and says goodbye to h
Elza enters the Rocha Hotel and finds Jane directing the maids with cleaning.“Girls, you cannot wear the same cloth all the time. See,” she runs her finger over a chair, “you guys cleaned it, but because the cloth was dirty, it just spread the dirt. Use a different cloth for each occasion, and then the furniture will be 100% clean.”“Thank you for the advice, Mrs. Motta.” One of the maids bows like she's Japanese.“Glad you understand.” The maids leave and Jane finds Elza, “Hello, Elza! How is your day?”“Very worried.” Elza lets out a sigh, “My baby has barely started labor and already fought with I don’t know who.”Jane laughs, “Elza, from what you've told me, João Paulo is no longer a baby. Is it true that he is as big and seductive as Josias was in his twenties?”Elza gives the manager a slight push, “Be respectful, girl! Don't let your hubby hear you.”The two ladies burst out laughing. João Paulo's beauty will still generate many comments among women.Elza continues, “It’s just
João Paulo arrives nervous because of the clash he had with William. But upon entering his office, he finds Gabriela waiting for him.Gabriela, in turn, thinks that João Paulo is nervous because of her and starts to apologize, “Sorry for the invasion, João Paulo, but I need to talk to you!”“We're talking.” He responds curtly and heads for the desk.“I want to apologize for the terrible sin I committed yesterday. Please, don't resign because of me.” Gabriela only needed to kneel.“I won’t resign.” João Paulo sits down, “And I'm not angry because of you. I met an asshole along the way.”Gabriela holds her tongue in time to ask, ‘Your father’? She clears her throat unnecessarily and continues, “So what's your first article going to be?”“How Will Campos went from winning scorer to paralyzed failure.”Gabriela bursts out laughing, “Ha, ha, ha! João Paulo, you really are your father’s son.”“GABRIELA!” Maggie exclaims unexpectedly.Gabriela takes another fright and takes her hand to her h
Josias is reading the outline of the speech he intends to give at the inauguration of the Uélton Freire Building.The desk phone rings and he picks it up with mild irritation, “Presidency, good morning!”“Mr. Rocha, it’s your brother. Can I transfer the call?” Pollyanna asks cautiously.“Yes, you can, Pollyanna.” Josias calms down when thinking about his dear brother, “Hello, João?”João Paulo is at the desk equally irritated, “Josias, we need to talk about Will and Caio Campos.”Josias lets out a long sigh, “Let me guess: you went to see your nephew and he acted like a jerk.”“Is he really my nephew?” João Paulo scratches the back of his neck, “Will even raised that doubt.”Josias bursts out laughing, “Ha, ha, ha! What an imbecile! If you are my brother, it stands to reason that you are Caio's uncle. Ah, João Paulo, don’t be angry with him.”“I'm about to write an article to defame him.” João Paulo has his fingers itching to get started.“No need, Will has had enough punishment. Now
Melissa is watching the music video of Hanson's song “If Only”, trying to fit in with pop culture to write fresh ideas for the next season of 'Sweet Love'. Kelvin returns from the midday service with his tuxedo jacket over his shoulders, his tie undone, and two buttons undone on his shirt.Melissa smirks at him, “Hmm, when the handsome hubby shows up like that, it means he has bad intentions.”Kelvin equally grins and throws himself onto the sofa, snuggling and tickling his beloved wife, “You hit the jackpot!”Melissa enjoys the tickling. Alan and Caroline come down the corridor and smile at their mother being loved and cared for.“Will I ever be happy like Mommy?” Caroline whispers in Alan's ear.Alan gets embarrassed, “What is it, little sister? It's still too early to think about something like that.”“Oh, how boring!” Caroline snorts, “I'll ask Rosemary.”As the music video ends, programming is interrupted once again, “We interrupt our programming to deliver this urgent news: Mrs.
Among the corridors of Rocha Constructions, the news has already spread like wildfire.Pollyanna has a whole bottle of pills in her hand about to swallow them all at once, with Alfred holding her wrist, “Don't do that, Pollyanna!”“Let go of me, Alfred! I need to commit suicide! I was responsible for the death of my boss's wife! I don't deserve life anymore!” Pollyanna shakes herself frantically.The bottle of pills falls from her hand and scatters across the floor. One of the pills lands on Octavio's foot. He follows the trail of the pills and discerns that they belonged to Pollyanna, “Pollyanna, I hope you haven't thought the worst.”Pollyanna lets the tears run down her cheeks, “I was very stupid, Octavio. I should never have doubted Everaldo's powerful words!”Everaldo became known among everyone intimate with Josias.Octavio strokes her head, “I don't believe Josias blames you for this.”Josias appears running and almost slips on the pills, “YAU! Someone sweep the floor, please!”
Josias arrives at the General Hospital and makes a big fuss in the corridors.“WHERE IS SHE? WHERE IS SHE? KATE! KAAAATEEE!”He bumps into Beto and Wallace and they both grab him.“Josias, for Christ’s sake, calm down!” Beto exclaims excitedly, “Let’s wait in the lounge.”Everyone enters the famous lounge. Isabel enters after them with a handkerchief embroidered in gold, “Josias, I’m so sorry...”“What happened, guys?” Josias no longer holds back the tears, “She said just today that she wasn’t going to die!”Isabel feels shivers on the back of her neck, “She defied Divine law, Josias.”“Isabel, I don't believe Everaldo could have had the courage to kill her. Why?” Josias exclaims in disgust.Wallace shakes Josias by the shoulders, “For God's sake, man, don't go turning into an atheist now! You've always believed what Everaldo said since 1980. And you REALLY don't know why Katherine is being punished?”Josias sits on the sofa with tremors, “Kate and I forgive each other.”“Did she and
The lounge is now fuller with the presence of Octavio, Jane, Vernon, and Elza.Josias hugs his mother and smells the vodka on her breath, “Mother, did you drink?”The hug is broken, “How could I NOT drink at a time like this, son? It's too much tragedy for one life.”Vernon adds, “It seems like everyone who comes here ends up going to the cemetery.”Octavio wrinkles his nose, “No, guys, let's pray not!”Simeon starts to walk in circles, “It's getting dark. What a lengthy operation!”Dora sighs, “Take your time, dear. If this is to save their lives, so be it.”But Gabriela becomes more restless. She wants Katherine dead so she can marry Josias!João Paulo observes her, “Why are you scratching your arms, Gabriela?”“Guys, I'm going outside to get some fresh air. I don't think I should even be here.”Josias suddenly approaches her and looks deeply into her eyes, “Gabriela, thank you so much for coming. I imagine you came on behalf of Bernie and Maggie Marçal. I won’t forget your love and
