Esmeralda 33: She Is Your Daughter!

Esmeralda was frightened by the approaching footsteps. When she queried who the person was, Rodolfo was furious so see a wet Esmeralda, drooping all over with waters from his swimming pool. By the time Blanca arrived, she was distressed by the embarrassment.

Rodolfo went into a rage and insulted Esmeralda. He angrily drove her to the house of the scarred-faced man who had confessed love for her- Dr. Lucio.

Meanwhile, Juana, Lucio's housemaid had noticed the change and of love-turned-raging-hatred of her boss for Esmeralda and was frightened, what this could result into whenever the man should lay his hands on Esmeralda anytime soon.

That time was not long in coming, Rodolfo arrived with Esmeralda and delivered her into the hungry and amorous hands of a surprised but grateful Lucio. What happened afterwards became a matter of controversial conjectures.

Lucio first thoroughly rebuked poor Esmeralda for 'abandoning' him for José Armando. That night, the wicked and cowardly doctor sedated her and somehow sexually abused her, in her drowsy state.

Dominga, Crisanta and Blanca wondered where Rodolfo had driven the poor blind girl to that day. When José Armando from Mexico city heard that Rodolfo had come back to Casa Grande, and knowing his unbridled hostility for Esmeralda, he returned immediately, hoping to protect his wife against possible aggression of his father.

When Esmeralda woke up the next day from her sedated sleep, she felt bruises and pains all over her body, she suspected that she must have been 'ravaged' by the beast-turned-doctor, but had no proof. She was depressed, because she thought that Lucio had taken sexual advantage of her.

José Armando confronted Rodolfo for disgracing Esmeralda, and driving her out of Casa Grande. Rodolfo was also angry and sent him packing out of the house for the second time tin two weeks.

The scandal was too much for Crisanta to stomach, she bursted out her long-delayed confession and accuse Rodolfo of being inhuman and mistreating his biological daughter- ESMERALDA!
