Episode 5: "You're Playing With Fire!"

Consuela, the evil architect, planner and master-mind of the misfortunes of Amelia, lighted a match-stick of amorous fire with Luis Alejandro Montero, which? later exploded and consumed her in this Mexican telenovela. Yes it led to her death! But we would have to wait for quite some time before we get to that episode.

After Don Elcantara was rescued by firemen from the smoking elevator, he was attended to medically by Dr. Carlos Eduardo Gomez Ruiz who, coincidentally was just entering the buliding with a mission top come and talk Luis Alejandro Montero out of the suit filed by Luisa. The oldman was grateful to him and exchanged complimentary cards with each other. Carlos went thereafter and walked straight into Alejandro's office..., and what a heck...he caught Consuela with his step-father in an amorous kissing session.

The 'couple' quickly separated and Consuela went away while Carlos tongue-lashed Alejandro, calling him a coward that lacks the moral courage to divorce his mom- Marissa Gomez Ruiz, but rather prefer to sustain adulterous relationship with strings of women outside his matrimony. He walked out angrily and jammed the door on Alejandro's face.

Pedro Perez confesses his 18-year lie to his sister, the catholic nun. That he is not the true father of Luisa, and he had sacrificed his whole life, in the hope that Amelia would one day love him. That he had never shared any conjugal relationship of a husband-wife relationship with Amelia.

Augusto, the lawyer friend of Carlos was went to visit Rigobert- the old house-keeper of Don Elcantara, who happens to be his god-mother and who sponsored him through university. He told her of his gratitude and promised to take care of her as soon as he begins to earn money. He told her of his first case which he filed on behalf of a 'rich' young lady whom he intends to marry. He mentioned her name as Luisa Fernanda Perez. the old house-keeper mused over the name and thought it to be Amelia's daughter, but she dismissed it because she knew Amelia and Pedro aren't rich anyway.

Now Amelia scolded Luisa after she confessed the detail of the scam against L.A. and warned her not to tell her father about it, at that point Pedro came in and heard them, so he challenged Amelia on what she was hiding from him. Amelia lied to him that it is about Luisa's escapades in school. She later taught Amelia to lie to Pedro that she was sick and want Amelia to take her to the hospital. This would be a perfect excuse for Amelia to encounter her old flame Luis Alejandro Montero at the court-room tomorrow. her plan was to rekindle her flame with L.A. and tell him to forget about the case and that Luisa was his daughter whom he abandoned the pergancy of 18 years ago. That was her plan, but we would wait to see if it works out in tomorrow's episode.

Nana, as the old house keeper of Marissa was fondly called by Carlos, warned Carlos not to reveal the infidelity of Alejandro to marissa asit would cause her untold pain, he agreed with the old woman.

Pedro confided in Juancho- an old gardener colleague, that he suspected Amelia of infidelity, citing the example of secret phonecall she received. Pedro was very saaaad. He explained to Juancho that Luisa was not his true daughter and there has never been any conjugal affair between him and Amelia. Juancho advised him to employ the services of private detective to trail Amelia's movement if he wants to prove her infidelity.

Rigobert- the old house-keeper in Don Elcantara's house had a confrontation with Consuela over the draging of Don to L.A. for counsel. she wondered aloud why L.A. of all lawyers in the city. Consuela simply told her that she doesn't know any other lawyer in the city and besides, it is an oppourtunity to find true happiness with the man whom she had always loved. At that point Rigobert warned her that she is playing with fire. Consuela also warned Rigobert that she should not interfere in her love life and should never tell her husband and father.
