William talks to Katherine and tries to convince her to break free from this sham marriage.
“Katherine, think with me. What are the advantages you have in this marriage other than sex with an attractive and virile guy, money, fame, power, and an assured future for your child?”
Katherine gawks at the trouble to think. She couldn't answer!
William smiles contentedly, “That's what I thought. These are the things that make you insist on this troubled marriage. But when it comes to love, Josias fails at it miserably!”
“Are you talking about me or your sister?” Katherine teases him.
William is unfazed, “That's the point: Josias's heart is always focused on my sister. I don't want them to remarry. I don't even think my sister would forgive him. But it’s undeniable that Josias still retains the interest. For you, staying married is more of a sense of duty than true love.”
Katherine feels a lump i
Kelvin enters the Mountain Penthouse eager to tell Melissa that Diane is pregnant without knowing it was a false alarm.But when he's still in the vestibule, suddenly the radio is turned on and Céline Dion's “I Want You to Need Me” fills the penthouse.Kelvin smiles thinking Melissa wanted a romantic setting, but when he's about to move into the living room......He hears Josias's voice, “You haven't confirmed me yet, Melissa: do you still love me?”Kelvin widens his eyes to the hilt and freezes his steps. He is not visible to Melissa and Josias and continues to listen to the conversation.Melissa shakes her head, “I didn't 'answer.' You have nothing to 'confirm' because you asked a question, not an affirmation. I don't love you anymore, Josias. I love my current husband, Kelvin Mountain. With him, I can feel like a legitimate wife, and not the 'principal', among a harem of concubines who are dying to get me out
A few more days passed. At Crystal Blue, Diane keeps sad and worried about the impossibility of getting pregnant. Daryl finds her melancholy at the bar. Diane inadvertently put too much vermouth into the drink she was preparing for a customer.“Are you alright, my love?”“I'm the one who asks you.” Diane holds out the drink to the customer and walks away, “Are you okay?”Daryl takes her hands, “My love, I'm not upset with you because we had a false alarm. I've already told you that.”Diane takes a deep breath, “Honey, I've made another appointment with Dr. Silvana. I want to know if I have any problems. Perhaps... maybe I am—”“Don't even touch that word, honey!” Daryl comforts her, “Alright, take the exam if you want to feel better, but let's not think about the worst, OK.”“OK.” Diane's eyes are teary.Kelvin approaches his brother
In Dr. Silvana's office, the doctor patiently and carefully explains to a distressed Diane how such a situation of hers is not at all irredeemable.“Diane, I've seen a lot of patients like you.” Dr. Silvana smiles assuredly, “Women who get so anxious and eager to get pregnant that, in the end, they can't. It seems like it's a psychological thing. A lot of my patients ended up getting pregnant when they least thought about it.”“So you think I should make love to my husband without thinking about the trousseau and the baby shower?” Diane asks dumbfounded.And Dr. Silvana is equally shocked, “So that's it? Diane, I believe your body is purposely playing tricks. Do this: relax, go home, and keep trying.”Diane is awkward, “Dr. Silvana, I really wanted to do an exam on my uterus and ovaries... Maybe I'm even in trouble without knowing it.”Dr. Silvana takes a deep breath, “OK, as you wis
In the Mountain Penthouse, Melissa narrated to her parents everything that happened on Josias's last visit to her. Simeon and Dora are appalled by the twist.Dora jokes, “Daughter, are you sure you're not outlining a new episode of 'Sweet Love'?”“I swear I don't, Mom!” Melissa is thrilled, “Josias was asking sweetly and sincerely. But... Couldn't I cheat on my husband, could I?”Simeon takes her hand, “Melissa, what do you REALLY think of all this?”Melissa turns to him, “What are you talking about, Dad?”“I was wondering if you still feel anything for Josias in your little heart,” Simeon replies in a fatherly tone.Melissa has a slight tremor, “I feel... friendship, I feel companionship for Josias and I share two beautiful children.”Simeon continues to motivate, “I understand, dear daughter. I just want you to know that we won't condemn you if
At Rocha Constructions, Josias is at his desk when his cell phone rings. He sees by the caller ID that is the number of his mansion.“Kate or J.J. is calling.” He answers, “Hello?”“Dad, it's David. We need to talk urgently.” David speaks at a fast pace.“David, did something happen? Why are you so fast-paced? It looks like you ran a marathon.”“I'm nervous. Your wife has insinuated that I am a spy for my mother because of my phone calls!” David complains, making drama.Josias purses his lips. Then he asks, “David, did you do anything to annoy your stepmother?”“I didn't do anything! Your wife is hysterical and keeps getting in trouble; it seems she takes a neurotic pleasure in it!” David exclaims indignantly.Josias doesn't buy the explanation, “How funny, Alan says the same of you. The fact is, I can't make peace with any of you. If you two can
At Rocha Constructions, Josias receives information from Gabriela that someone has photographed a moment of friendship and is willing to turn it into a twisted story of adultery.But when Josias hugs Gabriela tightly, she smiles contentedly, confident that she will become the next Mrs. Rocha and defeat Katherine.Josias says, “Don't worry, Gabriela. I'll defend you.”Gabriela looks at Josias with shallow water eyes, “I'm so afraid, Josias... Someone thinks we did it on purpose... They sent in an anonymous email, the coward... Possibly this person wants revenge.”Josias sharpens his gaze, “I don't have proof, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Kate.”“She wasn't at the pizzeria that night.” Gabriela undoes the hug.“She WAS SUPPOSED to show up that night.” Josias explains, “We were waiting for her when you showed up. But Kate claimed she had gone to argue with Melissa in the
Melissa is frightened by Kelvin's uninviting countenance. He won't greet her with a romantic kiss.As she sits on the couch, Melissa wonders if Kelvin heard about the conversation she had with her parents, “Kelvin, what's happened that's so bad that you're like this, scowling?”“I want to be the first to tell you so you’ll understand at once that I am your man.” Kelvin retorts in a creepy tone.Such words should stoke the love between Melissa and him, but Melissa feels goosebumps down her spine and curls up on the couch, “I didn't betray you, Kelvin.”“No, I'm not accusing you of anything.” Kelvin explains, “It's Josias I'm talking about.”“This chat is meaningless.” Melissa becomes impatient and no longer cowers, “Josias is happy with Kate, against our expectations. We tried to introduce Gabriela to him, but she didn't stand a chance.”“Well, it
The next day, Katherine wakes up in her double bed and stretches out with a smile. She dreamed that Gabriela was being hanged in Ibrahim Square at her behest.However, she is amazed when her right-hand feels someone's male body.Katherine rubs her eyes to ward off the rest of the sleep, turns her head, and is surprised by Josias sleeping peacefully next to her as if he were always there.“Not this time!” Katherine begins to shake him, “WAKE UP, Josias! You won't escape my questions!”Josias grunts and is forcibly awakened, “Urgh... What time was it, what time is it?”“It doesn't matter!” Katherine leans against the head of the bed, “Where have you been? The world exploded yesterday and you were conveniently incommunicado! I called about twenty times!”Josias scratches his eyes, “I was in the gym room, exercising.”Katherine stares at Josias's handsome physique all
