At General Hospital, Dr. Silvana received a postcard from Antenor in the ruins of Ancient Greece.
She frowns and scratches her forehead, trying to understand how this happened.
Antenor was a poor deadbeat who couldn’t pay mere bills of R$ 100.00. Now he pays himself exquisite trips to Europe?
Shaking her head, she decided to ask that when he got back. Then she got up and started closing the office.
Turning off the air conditioning made it easier for Dr. Silvana to hear hurried footsteps and the uproar of desperate people.
“Oh God, does anyone know where Augusto is?”
“Let’s ask the front desk!”
“Even Josias is here, my.”
“What about Daryl and Diane’s party?”
Dr. Silvana widens her eyes and recognizes the voices of Dora, Simeon, William, and Caio.
She leaves the office before William utters some rudeness to Caio’s question, “Guys? What is
At General Hospital, Octavio is surprised to see that it is Jane’s number on the caller ID.“Hello?”On the other side, Jane responds, “Honey, are you still in the hospital?”“Yes, we still are. Even Francisco and Isabel.”“Wow, I didn’t know EVERYONE went there!” Jane exclaims, “Will you be able to break the news to them?”Octavio just listens, nodding, and going ‘Hmms’.Everyone who appeared in the hospital stares at Octavio, already practicing the words of condolence. Apparently, they didn’t have time to save Augusto.However, much to everyone’s shock......Octavio starts to smile and ends the call with, “OK honey, I love you!”Call finished.Octavio turns to everyone and meets them with questioning looks.“So what happened?” Josias broke the awkward silence.“Guys, we have
At the Mountain Penthouse, Daryl grabbed the bottle of champagne that cost a fortune and hurled it against one of the living room walls. Its shattering startled the others present.Felipe had never seen Daryl so furious these days when he was staying at the penthouse.Diane alerts him, “DARYL! Don’t scare Felipe, what is it?”“You won’t believe it!” Daryl roars like a lion.Bernardo says, “From what I understand, something unforeseen happened with a baby, and then you mentioned Octavio.”Daryl sits in the armchair, “His son was oversleeping, but careless Jane has already jumped to the conclusion he’s had sudden crib death! She made the biggest fuss and called everyone to the hospital, except us!”Maggie comments with wide eyes, “What a horror, folks! We weren’t notified either. I think the message came too late for us.”Daryl has an odd look, “I&
A few more days passed, and João Paulo’s errata appeared in the next issue of Maggiezine.However, all readers from Espírito Santo, Rio, São Paulo, and Minas Gerais have already read it and discovered that Gabriela Alves is a terrible mother.Gabriela is once again breathing fire as a female dragon, stomping around in circles as if she’s in a procession, gesticulating and grabbing her hair as if she wants to rip it out.“ARGH! ARGH! ARGH!” She screams like a wild bird, “Why do you hate me so much, João Paulo? Tell me, does the fact that I loved Josias bother you so much that you are vindictive and bitter?”The ironic thing is that Gabriela doesn’t see that what João Paulo wrote in the article is true: he is calmly in the armchair, shirtless, holding Sandra in his lap while she gets fed from the bottle. Paradise with Sandra, hell with Gabriela.Gabriela admires her husband&
At Rocha Constructions, Josias is in a meeting with the directors to discuss company matters.Josias was in his stately chair, listening to the financial report from Tiago. This one, he said standing up, pointing to the projector displaying pie charts.William was present as one of the shareholders.“Any more questions, gentlemen?” Tiago asks.“This graph is looking like one of my pizzas,” William responds jokingly, making the other gentlemen laugh.Tiago responds, “Yes, William, and your share of the profits is well stuffed. And what about your son? He will turn 21 next year.”“My boy, how time flies.” William nods smiling, “He is studying the company information I pass on to him.”Josias asks, “Any areas he’s interested in, Will?”“He likes to observe projects up close,” William answers.Octavio chimes in, “Then he needs to
Vernon takes pity on his son who has been suffering from Gabriela’s toxic relationship.“I need to make one thing very clear, Dad.” João Paulo continues, “I’m not complaining about taking care of Josias’s daughter. On the contrary, Sandra and I became attached as if we were truly father and daughter. We create an incredible connection. However, Gabriela doesn’t forget the past. She keeps rejecting her daughter, and when they are together, Gabriela is always yelling at her. Sandra cries when her mother approaches, and I have to separate them before Gabriela freaks out and kills her daughter.”Vernon pulls up a chair and sits down, “Son, the zeal and selfless love you have for Josias is admirable. But it’s obviously killing you. That faux pas of yours in writing about Gabriela in the article on the Metallurgist strike... everyone in the business is talking about it (and laughing). That’s a sign that
While Felipe doesn’t want to tell Daryl what happened so as not to be a snitch, it’s Patrick who does it in Crystal Blue, when addressing Daryl in his office.The owner of the restaurant was listening to “The Game of Love”, by Santana feat. Michelle Branch, when the waiter enters the office, releasing smoke from his nostrils.“I don’t believe it, Mr. Mountain!”“Pat, what happened? You look pretty nervous.”“I am! I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but I’m going to have to talk about your son! What he did is inexplicable. Even if he had, he stubbornly refuses to come clean, how are we supposed to—”“Oh my, why can no one tell the story of the beginning?” Daryl puts his hand to his head, “Pat, take it easy, take a deep breath, and tell the story coherently.”“That’s the problem, Mr. Mountain! There’s nothing to tell! Yo
At Rocha Constructions, Josias was pouring a drink in his office when Gabriela, always annoying, uttered a provocation about divorcing João Paulo in a cruel and insensitive tone.Josias could not stand such disrespect. He took the glass from the drink, and throw it......Above Gabriela... breaking one of the windows.Somewhere in the city, someone was surprised by one glass falling.Gabriela screamed like crazy and crouched in time, “ARGH! What does that mean?”“You can get the worst out of a man!” Josias says fiercely, “Why are you like this, Gabriela, WHY?”“I...” Gabriela still manages to pretend innocence, “I just wanted to talk to you... Josias, can’t we sit quietly and discuss the situation rationally?”Josias shoots this cheeky woman with his gaze, “How dare you speak of rationality? You were in love with me, but you started sleeping with my little b
Nadia angrily returns to the supermarket, still unhappy that the police don’t want to work on Thierry’s kidnapping. She opens the office with a bang and goes straight to the computer to turn it on.Thierry accompanies her, “When I saw you, I thought I should help you. You left the mansion early, sis. What was it this time? Oh, thanks for the suit.”Nadia sits down at her desk, “I thought you’d look good on it and it’s your size. Anyway, I tried to contact that Sergeant Moraes, but he’s on paternity leave.”“Wait for him to return, then.” Thierry smiles.“It’s not a matter of him coming back.” Nadia opens a drawer and chooses a CD to play on the CPU, “They don’t want to talk about your kidnapping anymore.”Thierry breaks his smile, “Ehr... Sis, I suggest you listen to them. Put that aside.”Nadia is displeased, “But... You t
