Snippets 71

Marissa drowned, and one of the attendants caught a glimpse of her as she drowned. he dived into the waters to rescue Marissa who had already fainted. As they brought her out of the waters, L.A pretended as if he was part of the rescue team. He administered first aid on her by draining her of all the waters she had swallowed and breath of life was given to her. When she recovered, to the disappointment of L.A. He changed the pills and gave her aspirin, instead of her normal drugs. So, instead of getting better in recovery, her situation got complicated and worsened. As Jenny became concerned about Marissa's worsening health, she made attempts to call Carlos Eduardo, but L.A dissuaded her from calling him.

In the midst of their argument Andreina arrived and overheard their plans to kill Marissa. She accused Jenny of betrayal of trust and friendship of Marissa to have colluded with L.A. So, L.A took her to one side and told her that it was in her interest that they kill Marissa and she should cooperate by keeping quiet.

L.F and Carlos Eduardo got lost in the forest, after long treks, they settle down somewhere in the forest and Carlos made a bone fire to keep them warm. They began kissing again and..., before you know what was happening, they made love, for the first time, the very first time for Luisa Fernanda, in the quietness of the forest.

Don Fernando developed another crisis of Amnesia during his trip with Rigo to Monterrey, Rigo was so worried as they brought him home the next day. When Rigo made attempt to call the doctor Cosuela told her not to call any doctor and that they should leave Don alone. She also told Rigo that Vanessa jewelry and money has been stolen and that they suspect L.F as the thief.

Pedro requested that Alfredo should help him contact L.F, he was told by Consuelo when he phoned, that L.F and Carlos had gone out together. So, he lied to Pedro that L.F has travelled to Monterrey with Don. Alfredo was so depressed with jealousy with the news from Consuelo that L.F and Carlos went out together.

When Marissa's condition deteriorated, beyond reason, Jenny called Rosario and was told by old Nana that Carlos and L.F had gone on a trip. she became very hot with jealousy.

Vanessa began to regret the trap she set foe L.F after Lucero talked her out of it, so, they tried to recover the jewelry but it was too late.

L.F got the shock of her life when she went to Marissa to convince her to talk to Pedro. Marissa dismissed and disgraced her, accusing her of all the false allegations of theft that L.A and Jenny had accused her of. Marissa did not allow her to even defend herself, she sent her out of her house. L.F was so ashamed and embarrassed, as she was leaving, she saw Jennifer smiling because she was humiliated by Marissa. L.F told Nana Rosario not to tell the Carlos what happened because she feared that Carlos may fight his mom because of the incident. When Carlos came, Rosario was the first to tell him how Marissa and jenny humiliated L.F. When she got home, she told the story of how Marissa disgraced her in her house to Sister Smiley.

Jenny suggested to Marissa to come for physical exercise at the gym and also for swimming to improve her health. L.A encouraged her to go and he also followed her to the swimming pool.

Lucero was shocked by the evil plans of Vanessa and Consuela to incriminate L.F and she withdrew, saying she would not be part of the wicked plans. vanessa reported back to Consuela that Lucero won't cooperate in the vendetta.

Carlos went to L.F and told her to follow him to the gym where Marissa had gone for swimming lessons to confront both Jenny and Marissa and tell them not to interfere or manipulate their love life again. L.F refused saying she had had enough trouble from his mom and Jenny. So they went instead to the nearby park (forest?), to play.

Andreina was so upset by the decision of L.A to reconcile and pack in with Marissa, but he assured her that he is doing it as a final sacrifice, because he would engineer death for Marissa by doing so that he can inherit her wealth and come back to marry Andreina. she was afraid of this evil plan and confession. so, she planned to travel out of Mexico before the 'accident' so that when it happens she would not be held as an accomplice to murder.

Pedro pleaded with Alfredo to discharge him, so that he can go home to celebrate his forthcoming birthday. In the course of their discussion, Suzanna, Pedro secret lover of 10 years, arrived to visit him. When she told him how much she had missed him and still loves him, Pedro was embarrassed and told her to leave the hospital and go.

Lupe found out that Alfredo was trobled by the fact that L.F did not love him. She advised him to forget about L.F

Consuela and Heriberto plan their intrigues against L.F, so they told Rigo to go on a off-day to visit her family in Monterrey and come back the next day. They didn't want her to be around when they would accuse L.F of theft and arrest her. they don't want her to be a witness of the so-called 'theft'. They convinced Don to grant her the off-day and also go with her on the trip, telling him that a change of environment is good for his recovery. He agreed with them.

At the pool while Marissa was swimming, L.A. arrived and suddenly Marissa developed a cramp and was drowning shouting for help. L.A watches on with a smile and refused to rescue her.

Consuela and Vanessa went on with their evil plans as soon as Rigo left for her one-day off. Consuela called in the police and reported to them the theft of money and valuable properties by L.F whom she described as the house maid and suspected to be at large. Meanwhile, Nicholas was surprised to find a lot of jewelleries on campus, the same jewelery that Vanessa and Consuela claimed to have been stolen by L.F.

Jenny began to help L.A by lying to Marissa that the man is suffering for his deep love for her. She advised Marissa to forgive him and bring him back to live with her particularly now that she is sick and Carlos does not have time to be always with her because of running after L.F. Marissa agreed and invited L.A to return to live with her.

Vanessa agreed to take her 'pound of flesh' from L.F by following Consuelo's advise to incriminate and lie against L.F. Now, she is the best of friends with her step mother, Consuelo. Their plan was to sell the Jwelleries of Heriberto's late wife and accuse L.F of stealing the proceeds of the sale of the jwellery at the Alcantara's house.

Pedro banned L.F from visiting him again at the mental hospital because of her reunion with Carlos Eduardo. She was very sad because of this negative decision of Pedro. Don Fernando spoke to L.A and told him to change his attitude towards L.F.

Consuela suspects that Rigo has proofs of the fact that Luicito was Amelia's daughter. She began to plan to also outwit Rigo. Carlos was surprised when he saw Jenny in the company of L.A when both of them were planning on how to incriminate L.F. Carlos and Ordonez too began to plan how to thwart the restoration of L.A's marriage to Marissa.

When L.F discovered that Pedro had another round of Schizophrenic attack, she went to marissa to help talk himout of his depression. Vanessa told her best friend Lucero that She has a grand plan to incriminate L.F.

Vanessa began to give Consuela's suggestion of vengeance against L.F a serious consideration. L.A and jenny perfects their plan to incriminate L.F and they voed to make it secret. jenny said that if the plan fails she is ready to kill L.F in oeder to have C.E to himself.

After, L.F left Marissa's house, Marissa called Carlos Eduardo to tell him that she did not approve of his relationship with the gardener's daughter. She insisted that Carlos must marry a lady of his own class and not a poor class. She also warned him to stop fighting Alfredo, because it is true that Pedro still hates him, and that Alfredo was not the one manipulating Pedro, Pedro had his own reasons for hating Carlos. Later when L.F saw Carlos, she was worried by the reserved attitude of Marissa, so, she asked Carlos what the impression of his mother was of her. Carlos lied to her that Marissa was happy with her.

Ordo'├▒ez was troubled by the danger of Marissa falling for the charm of the con man, L.A again, so he contacted Don to intervene by convincing Marissa that L.A is bad relationship for her and therefore she should not stop the divorce suit. Carlos warned Alfredo to stop following or visiting L.F and leave them alone. Meanwhile, jenny went to incite Alfredo to claim and fight for his love for L.F.

Armando came to tell carol that he now has a job as special assistant to L.A. Joaquina also confirmed the truth of the fact that Pedro was not L.F's father, but L.F said she is not interested in who her real father was. She said she would always be grateful to Pedro and would still see him as her father. L.A went to Marissa to lie about L.F that she was a thief and would soon be sent to jail and that would be bad image for her if the girlfriend of her son is seen a thief. Marissa asked him again if he still had any affair going on with Andreina and he said not any more.

Episode 62: The Reunion; The Tango

From now on, the battles for the love and soul of Carlos Eduardo would be fought with so much fervour and desperation between Jenny and L.F on every front. Jenny has promised our dear princess L.F, to fight with all that she has gotten. She promised to fight dirty! Talking about dirty warfare, I concede it to the cunning serpent called Jennifer de la Vega, she is a queen of evil schemes, she has an edge. The problem now would be the naivety of Carlos. He should stop fooling around with this snake. Since he is not a snake-charmer, it would be unreasonable to think that he would not be bitten by the poisonous, defeated and crawling foe called Jennifer.

I was so exceedingly joyful that L.F accepted the challenge to battle and stood up to the wiles of Jennifer. Jealous Jennifer came blowing hot the next day after the wedding to L.F's to draw the battle line. She excused Alfredo and told L.F. saying, "... little girl, we have to talk." She began by accusing her of going away with 'her boyfriend' at the party yesterday.... L.F shouted at her to "... stop right there! What story are you going to come up with this time, to keep me away from Carlos Eduardo?"

Jenny began with a litany of reminders that she had earlier told L.F about being the first, in Carlos life, long before L.F appeared, and about her relationship not just being an affair, she warned L.F that she should steer clear of Carlos because she was a school girl that cannot give what she- a 'real woman' is giving Carlos... L.F returned the salvo by adding a skipped reminder saying: "... I remember also, that you cried out your eyes out to me, lying about that fake pregnancy to keep me away from Carlos Eduardo... You must be a very insecure woman to come to my house, you came to threaten me? that's your weapon... That school girl is no longer a school girl and that little girl is grown up and wiser now. You can't change my love for him and you can't change what Carlos Eduardo feels for me. His heart does not belong to you!"

Jenny lost that round, so she changed her tactics, she began to taunt L.F and sow the seed of doubt, saying: "... I'm a real woman, I drive him crazy with what I give him, he is double-dating, he cheated on you once, he would do it again, you are just a fling in his love life, it's a ding-dong affair, yesterday at the party, it was your turn, tomorrow it would be my turn, I would have him running back to me in the palm of my hands..." L.F assured her that she would fight for her happiness, and Jenny should forget about separating her from Carlos again. She walked her out of her house.

Even The Moon Is Happy
Before this tango in the morning, L.F was brought home by Carlos after the reunion. She confirmed to him that she dreamt that they would get back together and Jenny came to interrupt the reunion. Carlos was angry and told her not to bring up the subject of Jenny in their discussion again. They looked at the sky, the stars and said that even the moon was happy to see them together again, and had come out to spy on them and celebrate their re-union. As they engaged in endless kisses under the open sky, with the galaxy as witnesses, Alfredo returned and also spied on them too, he was depressed and saddened by what he witnessed. Lupe cannot but noticed this when he came in, but he denied it saying that it must have been the hang-over of his depressed patients at the mental hospital.

Before they depart, the two lovers made two vows: Never to hide any secrets between them again; and, never to distrust each other again. Would the array of haters and liars who surround them as 'friends and neighbours' permit these vows to stand the test of time and love? The next series of episodes of la hija del jardinero would tell.

Splitting Image, Splitting Conscience
Carol would not allow Armando to rest, she wanted him to immediately phone his mother, Elvira Perreira, to tell him the name of his father so he can match it if it is same with L.A's. He would not oblige however, because, his mom had always changed the subject anytime in the past when he ask about his paternity, she had alway felt jilted and asked him to forget about his father. He is not sure whether his mom would cooperate to give him info about his father now.

L.A was troubled and tortured by the possibility of Armando Perreira. He wondered how the resemblance between him and the boy was so incredible. He enlisted Alicia, his secretary to get a new detective to investigate Armando. He doesn't want Solozano to handle the job. Consuela overheard him and told him to face his responsibility for fathering Armando because she was sure that the boy must be his son from another woman he impregnated and abandoned like he did with Amelia. He asked her to keep her speculations to herself. Heriberto came to call Consuelo's attention to Detective Medina who has come for his promised reward for burying the case of stolen 200,000 Dollars from the Safe.

Consuela, with a tinge of dictatorship decreed that Medina's reward would be appointment as Security Adviser with an office in the Steel company. She hoped that with the presence of Medina, no more case of theft would be reported at the Company. Medina was happy with the reward and asked them to prepare legal papers to formalize his appointment. L.A immediately asked Medina to his office for a private talk. He told him to get cracking after Armando Perreira, that he wants to know his background and parents.

Alfredo, fighting a loser's battle for L.F's love came into her early the next morning with a beautiful rose flower for L.F. He wondered why Jenny rushed out of her house spitting fire like a dragon. She told him that it was because of Carlos Eduardo. She confirmed what he already knew that they are now reconciled. He tried to poison her mind that how can she re-unite with a man whom she had said she would never trust, She explained to him that it is a risk she was prepared to take for love, saying "... My happiness is Carlos Eduardo!". She reminded him that she had never hidden her love for Carlos Eduardo and since both of them cannot continue to suffer while being separated, when their mutual happiness lies in being together.
