At Crystal Blue, Tiago and Octavio have lunch and talk about William's novelty.
Octavio almost chokes on the water he was drinking, “What? William wants to buy some part of our company? Let's sell as expensive as possible for him to give up!”
Tiago retorts seriously, “The master gave the go-ahead. We must obey him and sell our share so that we give 15% each. Josias would still have 25 percent.”
Octavio is not convinced, “What if William continues to buy until he exceeds Josias's percentage? Don't you see that's how it starts? If William occupies the throne...”
Tiago shakes his head, “Our master would never allow that and I wouldn't support it. WOULD YOU sell your share so that William would exceed 25%?”
“I don't want to sell even 0.5%!” Octavio exclaims.
“I will.” Tiago smiles mischievously, “William says it's to pass on to Caio later when Alan and David take up th
At Rocha Constructions, Josias meets with Tiago, Alfred, and Octavio to discuss William's introduction as a partner of Rocha Constructions.“Guys, I think everyone here already knows what Will Campos wants.” Josias begins the meeting, “He wants a percentage of our shares of the company to pass on to Caio in the future. When my children take up their positions at Rocha Constructions, Caio will also be part of our legacy.”Octavio jokes, “Is there still time for me to beget my heir?”The gentlemen laugh.Alfred asks, “What about Romualdo?”“I called him and he's willing to sell some quotas.” Josias replies with a faint smile, “And I advise the gentlemen to let William in.”“Of course, we’ll be cautious about any attempt by him to disrupt the company.” Tiago comments in an assuring tone, “Enough of the confusions we had in the 90s with Mrs. Rocha.&rd
A few days passed. William is more confident in his plan to infiltrate Caio into Rocha Constructions.At a lunch with the family gathered in the Mountain Penthouse, he is speaking in a very boastful way, “When the time comes for the second generation to take the reins of Rocha Constructions, my boy will help along the way. Aren't you happy about that, Caio?”Caio smiles humbly, “Let's see what help I can do.”Alan retorts bitterly, “Yes, we'll see!”William turns to Melissa, “Sis, are you serving scarlet eggplant?”Melissa is surprised, “No, bro, why?”“It’s because your son is bitter.”Caroline bursts out laughing. Simeon and Dora shoot William with their eyes.At the end of the table, Kelvin clears his throat and grabs a glass of wine, “Well, guys, I think the occasion deserves a toast, huh? Honey, the pasta with grated cheese is delicious.&rd
Josias stops by Vernon's apartment before heading to the Mountain Penthouse.He stands out with João Paulo wearing only shorts and sprawled out on the couch as if posing for Maggiezine. But he's just watching TV.“One single photo and the entire female population of Lagoon City would come in droves to see you.” Josias jokes, “How are you, bro?”“Hello, Josias.” João Paulo smiles, “Want room to sit?”Josias sits in the armchair, “Be at ease. How are things at Maggiezine?”“They're excellent. Gabriela and I became friends and the atmosphere at Marçal Publishing is welcoming.”Josias notices how João Paulo first mentioned Gabriela, “Ehr... It seems that having Gabriela as a friend is your priority.”João Paulo smiles smartly, “She's nice. Huh, I didn't see anything about the interview she did with you in the last i
In the Mountain Penthouse, William and Caio read the contract and then look at each other.Alan smiles triumphantly, “What does the deal say, folks?”William said, “I shall have no power to call meetings of the Board or to opine on the pertinent matters of Rocha Constructions. I'll just have voting power.”Alan bursts out laughing. Dora and Simeon also relieve each other but don't want to be disrespectful like their grandson.Caio smiles, “Well, Dad, if you sign and agree, it will prove to everyone that you never had bad intentions.William was going to refuse, but upon seeing Alan's disrespect, he grabbed a pen left over from the coffee table and signed, “OK. I said my biggest interest will be in the pizzeria. In fact, I intend to build my first branch in Evandro's old cafeteria.”Josias is surprised, “Evandro closed the diner?”“He retired, so to speak.” William hands
Alan visits João Paulo and is kind of intimidated by his exuberant and seductive uncle in just shorts on the couch watching the music video for “Against All Odds”, Mariah Carey's version.“Uncle, can't you even wear a t-shirt?”João Paulo smiles showing perfect teeth to his nephew, “What is it, nephew? Afraid of falling in love with me?”Alan spasms, “What the hell! Never joke with something so disgusting and immoral, uncle!”João Paulo laughs, “I was just testing you. It's good to know that your grandmother will have great-grandchildren.”Elza brings another platter of buttery cookies, “Here they are, Alan! They're not the same as Shirley's, but I copied the recipe from the Internet.”“I don't even remember that old troublemaker anymore.” Alan speaks disrespectfully and eats, “Hmm... very good, Grandma Elza.”“An
At Marçal Publishing, Katherine is taken to the office of the owner, Bernardo.He closes the door menacingly, “Sit down, Mrs. Rocha.”“I'd rather stand!” Katherine reacts in fear, “You didn't need to close the door.”“I don't want anyone to interrupt us.” Bernardo mysteriously suggests, “Tell me what you came here to do.”“I came to know what a story this is of Gabriela Alves having done an alcoholic interview with MY husband!” Katherine is brave and bold again, “How many times will I have to say that Josias is MINE?”“As many times as you want, madam.” Bernardo sits down, “No one is questioning otherwise. Why do you feel so threatened?”“Am I the one who's just 'feeling'?” Katherine crosses her arms, “I don't understand how Miss Alves meddled in my life. I was informed that she was in the hospital lounge along
Katherine is back at the Rocha Mansion and is watching television in the main living room with J.J.“Mommy, where's Daddy?”“He went out to take care of some matters.” Katherine smiles calmly.David magically appears, asking, “What matters?”Katherine freaks out at her stepson, “WOW! What is it, boy, do you want to kill me from the heart?”“No, I just want to know what's going on.”Katherine smiles mysteriously, “Well, your father went to the Mountain Penthouse to deliver a document to William Campos demanding that he not meddle or cause a ruckus at the board meetings of Rocha Constructions.”David heaves a sigh of relief, “Phew... For a moment, I thought my father was careless.”Katherine frowns, “Look how you talk about your daddy, boy! Josias was never a careless man, otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to move the company as it
William and Caio paste a poster at Pizzeria Campos announcing discounts on pizza prices to celebrate the purchase of shares of Rocha Constructions. Their radio is playing “SexBomb” by Tom Jones & Mousse T.“Done!” Caio gets down from his chair, “I hope enough customers are coming!”“I paid for an ad on the radio station.” William comments proudly, “And remember, son, we'll soon have another pizzeria as a branch in Rainbow Garden.”“Who's going to run the pizzeria over there, Dad?” Caio asks, interested.“We're going to hire trustworthy people. Maybe Evandro can point us to the old employees of his diner.” William replies smiling, “Oh, God, is this really happening?”“Yes, Dad.” Caio hugs William.João Paulo walks into the pizzeria, “Oh, that's cool! A moving scene between father and son.”The hug is undone
