Episode 8: The First Kiss of Love is Deepest

The stupor of yesternight's wine may have worn off but the sweet aroma of that encounter has become more and more intoxicating. Carlos could not sleep all-nite because of the savour of that encounter. Luisa could not wait the following morning to see Carlos again. At the slightest excuse, she sought a favor from the lawyer Augusto, who had come to take her to the court for the next hearing, to first take her to meet the Doctor Carlos Gomez. That visit culminated in the First Kiss of Love as the newest couple in town were escounded in each others arms, lost to the world and... Augusto, who was waiting outside the hospital for Luisa Fernanda Perez.

That kiss succeeded in opening a floodgate of uncontrollable emotions that found both in the ladies rest-room of a restaurant doing... what they found out they could only do best- Kissing....

I'd continue tonight's episode later...let me attend to my family first...see ya later friends...

...friends, I am back. pardon my delay.

Rigoberto the old maid, Consuela and her husband Heriberto Sotomayor were discussing the failing health of Don Elcantara, which has become a great concern to the household of recent. Rigoberto mentioned something about the old man saying something about his will recently. Heriberto- the consumate schemer, was startled and asked the old woman what was in the will and what did Don say. Consuela complacently replied that the will is not a subject of importance since she is the only heiress, and there is nothing to bother about. Rigoberto however asked her to wake up from her day-dream, saying that Consuela should not be so fast to jump into conclusion,..."you have a sister who has a daughter...". At that point Consuela was silenced, but became thoughtful and sulky.

Carlos arrived Jennifer's house, but Jenny did not even grant him an audience of explanation for his absence. She called him a cheating liar and marched him out of her house before he could take a seat.

I suspect that some portion of the telenovela was cut off because, the next thing we saw was, Carlos and Luisa in deep kiss in the ladies rest-room of a restaurant. A woman came in to ease herself and was shocked to find a man in a ladies rest-room kissing a lady. Carlos apologized and walked out of the rest room. It happenned to be a friendly dinner of four friends- Carlos, Luisa, Vanessa Sotomayor and Augusto. I guess that Luisa must have agreed to Augusto's invitation to a dinner date by wisely roping Vanessa and of course her new love Carlos into the scheme.

So, neither Augusto nor Vanessa knew that a secret affair had already started between Carlos and Luisa. Carlos and Luisa must have taken excuse to go to the restrooms, leaving Vanessa and Augusto at the dinner table. The secret lovers now met by pre-arranged signal at the ladies rest-romm for the continuation of what they started yesterday. as soon as both arrived at the table Luisa announced that she is going home as her mom would be expecting her back at home by now. Vanessa was happy and said she would still hang around with Carlos. An eye signal from Luisa was enough for carlos to also say he is not hanging around but had to leave too. That is how this two love-birds used their innocent but ambitious best friends to achieve their love game that night.

Pedro came home from work and asked Amelia about Luisa, she replied with a confrontation saying, "I am sick and tired of this fake marriage". Pedro was shocked and asked her why the sudden out burst, to which shee replied that, if she doesn't get this off her heart she would explode. Pedro wanted to know if she had been seeing a man to which she said no and continued her tirade..."...what a disgrace to stay with you under the same roof for 18 years because there is no alternative." she said she couldn't cope again with the lie that he is the father of Luisa. She lied that, the reason for her (weird and mysterious recent behaviours) why she sent him out when receiving a secret telephone call was because an old friend called her and reminded her of her family.

Pedro became sympathetic and suggested that they should give calling on her father, Don Elcantara and family another trial. She did, and behold, it was Rigoberto that picked the call, she must have been weeping when she called from the account of Rigoberto, Amelia seem very upset and therefore Consuela should make effort to fish Amelia and Pedro out. Consuela was not too enthusiatic about this Samaritan assignment, obviously because any new invitation of Amelia into the family would scatter her grand scheme of inheriting her father's fortune when he dies. The old woman- Rigoberto has said it several times under her breath that Consuela and her husband Heriberto are waiting and praying that Don should die soon so they can solely inherit his great fortune.
