Daryl keeps upset in his office after the argument he had with Josias. He sent an email to Kelvin asking for explanations about the letter he sent to Melissa.But Kelvin still hasn’t answered nor admitted that he sent such a lewd letter to Melissa...Without the answer, Daryl continued to believe that Josias made it all up to mock his younger brother.“While my little brother is suffering in Victoria... The other one can’t leave him alone and has to rub his victory in Kelvin’s face. If my brother commits suicide... You’ll be finished, Josias!”Daryl punches the desk.At this moment, Diane opens the door, startled by her husband’s reaction, “Oops! Bad time?”“What is it, dear?” Daryl asks, watching Diane’s panicked facial expression.“Darling, Miss Vasquez entered the restaurant fleeing a horde of angry passengers. Can she stay here at the back of the restaurant for a while until they leave?”Daryl has a better idea. With a smirk, he replies, “Send her over here. No one will dare to br
Sofia is stunned by Daryl’s nonsensical question. Has this guy gone crazy?“Mr. Mountain, I think your grilled salmon was off.” She says looking at the door.“No, Miss Vasquez. The salmon I serve is always fresh and healthy.” Daryl smiles proudly.“Then I better go—”Sofia starts to run, but Daryl senses it and catches up with her, grabbing her by her waist, “Oh, oh, oh! None of that, you will stay here!”“LET ME GO, YOU CRAZY!” Sofia screams desperately. What is happening?“Crazy, me?” Daryl shakes her off, “Am I crazy to envision a romance between you and Alan Rocha? Isn’t that what you want?”“Who are you to speak on my behalf?” Sofia screams in Daryl’s face, making him smell her minty breath.“I know very well what is going on!” Daryl aggressively releases Sofia and she almost falls, “Vaztrans didn’t appear in the article about the neglect of public transport written by João Paulo. And now, you’re running from riders of your Dad’s buses. I can only conclude that things are not goi
The day of the Lagoon City fashion show approaches. At Marçal Publishing, Maggie is doing her best to provide extensive and complete coverage for her readers.She just finished a meeting with editors, reporters, and photographers, ironing out the last details to create the perfect article.Bernardo appears in the meeting room and finds Maggie turning on the lights, as they used a projector.“And then, dear? What did you decide?”“We’re going to postpone some articles for the next issue.” Maggie responds euphorically, “And then we’ll have half the magazine just to talk about Josias’s fashion show.”Bernardo nods, “Very well, dear. I 100% approve of the idea.”“We’re going to be able to sell a lot of magazines, aren’t we, honey?” Maggie hugs him.“Yes, we are going.” Bernardo kisses her cheek.Maggie felt the rim of Bernardo’s glasses, “You know, I still haven’t gotten 100% used to you wearing glasses. You look so...”“Nerdy?”“The word would be ‘intellectual’”. Maggie quickly corrects.
In the Teodoro building, Alan is not willing to give up the friendship (or something else) that he feels for Sofia. What is Vera talking about?“Vera, with all due respect, why don’t you trust Sofia Vasquez if this is the first time you’re hearing about her?” Alan questions her.Vera smiles calmly, “It turns out that, from what you’ve told me, I can already see that there’s something wrong with the story. Alan, could it be that Sofia was using you for information?”Alan narrows his eyes, “No, Vera, I don’t believe for a minute—”Vera cuts him off gently, “Please, Alan. You’ll be the heir to Rocha Constructions, the most famous civil construction company in Espírito Santo. You cannot afford to be deceived by women, or the company’s reputation will crumble.”“Well, I guess I learned that from watching my Dad.” Alan crosses his arms.“Therefore, I want you to watch if Sofia gets back in touch with you. If that does not happen...”“Then I’ll know she just came to me for the story,” Alan c
William is walking around the Sunset Village arena facility. He decided, on his own, to see if everything was happening according to his will, rather than according to Josias and Melissa’s will.And so, as he turns down the hall toward the dressing rooms, he is shocked and dumbfounded by what he sees. Not far away, one of the doors had a sticker with the name CLÁUDIO GUZMAN.“This is nonsense! Where is the person responsible for this here?” William cries out to no one in particular.The workers are embarrassed to respond to Mrs. Rocha’s younger brother since he seemed to be frothing with rage like a hydrophobic dog.Wallace, wearing a white helmet, approaches the workers, “Keep working, people. We still have a lot to do.”The workers go back to work, confident that Wallace will solve yet another crisis at the construction site.Wallace smiles as he approaches William, “My friend, you should beware of your lack of mobility.”“You ordered a lot of ramps to be built, which facilitates ac
At Saint Gabriel’s College, Caio waves goodbye to Alan as the heir’s cell phone rings.“Alan, my class is about to start.”“It’s her.” Alan smiles widely.“So pick it up, Romeo!” Caio laughs and enters the room. His teacher closes the door abruptly, as if Caio was the only one left to enter, scaring Alan.He noticed that his class was about to start too, but decided to answer it, “Hello?”On the other side, Sofia is outside the Vaztrans company, “Hello, Alan! Why did you take so long? Am I disturbing your class?”“Actually, I’m going to my classroom. But you can talk, Sofia.” Alan grins, in love.Sofia, though, is saying in a soft, sweet voice, but not with romantic intent, “OK. I just wanted to know if you managed to get any information about what your uncle is spying on my father’s company. You said you were going to help me, didn’t you?”Alan is slowly fading his smile, remembering Vera’s words...“Alan?”“Sofia, I’m already at the door of my classroom.” Lie. Alan still had to cros
Erasmo, giving in to pressure, accepts that Daryl pays his share of the donation to charity on Josias’s account.Josias listens to Erasmo over the phone, “Oh, have you deposited yet? Then I’ll check with Melissa. Please, take a copy of the deposit slip and send it to her email, do you know which one?”Erasmo can’t stop sweating. His shirt is soaked, “OK, Mr. Rocha, OK... bye...!” Erasmo ends the phone call, “What the Hell! Because of you, I said I made the deposit! You should have left, but you stayed here on purpose!”Daryl continues to smirk, “Mr. Vasquez, if there’s one thing you should learn from me, it’s that I never pass up an opportunity.”Erasmo rolls his eyes and grabs another handkerchief to wipe away the sweat. The first one is extremely wet and doesn’t dry anything else, it just smears, “Don’t bother me with your memorized phrases from self-help books. Are you really going to deposit me?”“I’ll transfer the money to your account and you will transfer it to Josias,” Daryl s
Josias returns home and finds Melissa walking from the hall into the kitchen in casual clothes.“Honey, good evening!” Josias reaches her.Upon hearing her beloved’s voice, Melissa freezes her steps, smiles, waits for Josias to reach her, and receives a kiss from him on her cheek.“Good evening, my love. How was work after I left the company?”“Great!” Josias chirps, “Mr. Vasquez made the deposit. We have all the money for the donation, and on top of that, all the tickets are sold out.”Melissa jumps up and down with joy, “Oh, how exciting! Now all that’s left is the day.”“Exactly. Will William continue to encounter snags and problems?” Josias blinks.He goes upstairs to the second floor and Melissa follows him, “I don’t remember assigning Will to be prefect or enforcer. His lack of modality is a problem.”“That is true. But Caio could be that person. That way, there would be no scandals with the dressing room doors.” Josias comments.“Are you sure you want to handle this your way, J
