I am Your Father!

Luis Alejandro's wit was in full throttle as he declared the carefully kept secret of fatherhood to Luisa Fernanda. L.F was shocked and almost disbelieved L.A's claim. The con man was at his best when he reminded her, with crocodile tears, of the day Amelia followed her to the court, he said it must have been because Amelia wanted to tell him that L.F was his daughter, but he was too angry to allow her to talk.

He used the opportunity to expose Pedro's hypocrisy, for hiding this truth from her, all these years. L.F broke into tears and ran out of the place. L.A was happy for this successful execution of Phase one, of his plot to take over the Alcantara fortune. He told Consuelo that L.F would gradually digest and assimilate this truth and would later reconcile with him as her true father.

In Snippet 116, Pedro and Sister Joaquina were blamed and scolded by L.F for hiding the truth of her paternity from her. You would have expected Pedro to go the whole hog by also telling her that She was also the granddaughter of Don Fernando Alcantara.

This to me confirmed that L.A was not just the issue for Pedro, but the selfish fear of also losing L.F to her grand father. He would not escape this outcome because the very day that L.F knows that Don Fernando was her father, that would be the day she would pack out and moved in with her grandfather. That's in Snippet 158. But its better to read on as the drama build-up to that climax.

Further peeps into the neighboring future of the gardener's daughter could be gotten from Snippet 117. For those our new gardeners who have besieged me in the last two weeks with desires to read the full story of the gardener's daughter, go to: Intermission, where I guided you on how to read the FULL Story, from the beginning to the end. For the lovers of Esmeralda, I have found the remaining episodes that disappeared from my desktop, in the last one week, and hopefully, I would complete it as a Valentine gift for you in the next few hours.

Pedro had always been selfish. its just coming to the fore. No wonder amelia always called him a looser.
