Episode 28: Love Has To Be Mutual

The agony of a grand father! Even the police that came to rescue and separate Luisa Fernanda from the desperate grips of Don Fernando, admitted that she resembled the old man. That was why they tend to believe the anguish cries of the old man that Luisa was his daughter. But believe must be based on facts, so, in an effort to match their names, they asked him what his name was, alas! Amnesia has erazed his name from his memory: he doesn't know his name. To produce the fact of his identity, they also asked for his particulars, he searched feverishly for his purse which contained his identity, even Luisa helped him too to search his pockets, alas! Amnesia has snatched his purse from him and thrown it into the bush, it could not be found. This is what led the police to think that, if a man doesn't know his name, how could he possibly know who his daughter is? so they took him and dragged him to their they were dragging him, he cried out aloud with anguish in his voice to his daughter saying: "...Honey, don't let them take are my daughter,...Honey, please heeelp meeee..., don't let her go, she is my daughter...".

Don was eventually found and brought home from the police station. When asked what happened and where was his car? He couldn't remember anything that happened! Heriberto was more concerned for the car that was missing than being relieved for his father-in-law that has been found. All the police could tell them was that, he was found by a young girl who handed him over to them. Don excused the crowd of sympathetic undertakers- Consuela and her husband. After they left, he crawled to the foot of the Cross of Calvary in his room...he held on to the foot of Jesus weeping and praying. Would the Saviour intervene in his calamity? Would the God of salvation bring Don to his desired haven, and shame all his enemies, including Amnesia? The unfolding episodes would tell.

Back on the cruise, Vanessa told Carlos that today being the last day of the the cruise she wanted to celebrate it together with him in his cabin. Carlos disengaged himself from her exploring hands and told her that, he was not in mood for that, and he went straight to his cabin. In his cabin, he felt bad that he had not told Luisa by his own mouth about Jenny.He wondered that Luisa would hate him by now, and rightly so. Knock on his cabin door: it was vanessa again, this time with food and wine, satying that she brough t him something to eat for dinner since she didn't see him at the restaurant. He warned Vanessa that she was looking for trouble. that she should leave him alone as he doesn't want to talk about his problem with anybody.

His Kisses Were A Lie!
Back home, Luisa faced scolding from Amelia for taking her boyfriend along for the cruise, thereby breaking the school rules. Luisa just ignored her, and went to lock up herself in her room. Weeping and talking to herself saying: " everything was a lie: his kisses, his romance and his promises?" At that point, Pedro came in to commune with her, and she poured out her heart to him about how Carlos betrayed her, because she heard that he had another girlfriend.

Next day as Pedro and Amelia were tackling each other, in their usual tradition of strife, she blurted out that: "...I can't wait to sign my divorce papers and getting away from you!" Luisa Fernanda heard it and she came into their room asking them. "What did you say, mother, you want to get a divorce?"...they were silent for a while, but when Pedro wanted to lie by denying it, Amelia interrupted him saying, it is true and had been long in the pipeline, they were only waiting for her to finish her final exams; and that it was for her good.

Luisa was heart-broken with this news but amelia and Pedro told are that it was inevitable. After Amelia left for work, Luisa came to pedro and told him: "...daddy, between us there are no secrets, tell me what happened. Pedro told her only half truths, never told her that they were never, for the 19-year sex-less marriage lived once, as husband and wife. He however told her the truth that he had loved and adored Amelia all his life, but Amelia has not reciprocate his love. He admitted that LOVE HAS TO BE MUTUAL and not one-sided.

Jennifer stormed Marissa's house just as Carlos was arriving from the Cruise. As Jenny was accussing him of not caring for her, he stopped her with his accusation of spoiling his cruise by conspiring and sending Augusto to do her dirty job of telling Luisa Fernanda of everything about their former relationship and the pregnancy. Jennifer was surprised and denied it. In the midst of their arguement, an emergency phonecall from Consuela came for Carlos, that his darling patient, Don Fernando is suffering from Amnesia. He had to leave in a hurry to attend to Don.

The Fashion show was a big success...a big side-attraction was Leopoldo and Andreina. It seems Andreina is gradually becoming fond of Leopoldo. Marissa had to organise for the couple to go for a vacation on a Carribean Island. Leopoldo was excited and sees Andreina as an angel sent his way by Marissa. L.A. is angry and not happy about the developing love-affair between Andreina and Leopoldo his best friend.

Next day, L.A. in a surprising move, told Marissa that he would follow her to work to take coffee there. Marissa was naively happy. When they got to Marissa's office, she intoduced him to her efficient secretary, Amelia. After Marissa left him to attend to other matters, he stood before Amelia and refused to leave until Amelia agreed to a lunch date with him at one of his hide-outs later in the afternoon. He scribbled the address down for her and left.
