The inevitable battle for the love of Salvador has burst into the open in this Snippet 47, three women in a three-way battle for the love of Salvador Sorenzo. I would not stick out my neck to predict the winner now, Isabel is a vicious fighter, she has two murders (Don Pedro Jose Donoso and Andre), up her bloody sleeve. She is capable of more murders to reach her goal.
Aunty Rebeca is a slippery and dirty fighter. Having lost honor and dignity, she would be quick to drag Isabel into the murky and smelly waters of blackmail, to get her goal. The only innocent victim of this love duel is Valeria. I am not sure if she would give up easily. She would be crushed by Salvador's supposed romantic "betrayal", but would she succumb to Isabel and Rebeca?
That is the question which this snippet and others coming, would have to answer before weekend. Over now to Tessie again, to continue with the recaps of El Cuerpo del Deseo (Second Chance) telenovela. In case you have missed any episode so far, you can read them all from the sitemap of the full story from my Telenovela Stories blog, so far, from snippet 1 to snippet 47
It seemed that yesterday Valeria and Salvador kissed and made plans to escape together. Salvador wrote his resignation letter and Valeria began packing her belongings to make her dramatic escape... but there was only one problem...Rebeca.. Rebeca somehow discovered the truth and was utterly crushed!
In today's episode Simon, Antonio, Angela, Isabel, and Salvador were in a company party gathering. Simon continued giving Salvador a cold shoulder as Salvador tried to regain his trust and tried to explain to Simon that Valeria's love always belonged to him (Salvador).
Rebeca was crushed and was sorrowfully sitting alone until Walter came to disturb her. Rebeca snapped at Walter and went to speak to Valeria.
Salvador later on talked with Isabel. Isabel acknowledged that she knew that she would have complications with Andre's death. But she was sure she would overcome them. Salvador told Isabel that she was too over-confident. Isabel said she was confident, especially she was more confident of Salvador, more than anyone in the world. As especially now she had fulfilled her promise (of killing Andre), she felt as if Salvador was closer to her and whatever happened for better or for worse, they were bound together and nothing or no-one was ever going to separate them.
Salvador asked Isabel what she would do if there was something that could separate them at any given moment. Before Isabel could answer that question, Salvador and Isabel were called by one of the directors but Isabel was momentarily left alone thinking through that question...
Rebeca stormed into Valeria's room, very much annoyed and Angry. She asked Valeria how come she was saying goodbye to objects like Pedro's study room, her piano and her things and she was not saying goodbye to her own relatives whom she had lived with her whole life. Valeria pretended that she had no idea what Rebeca was talking about. Rebeca went and removed Valeria's suitcase, which was already packed and called Valeria a hypocrite.
She reminded Valeria of how her parents died in a horrible earthquake and how she was confined in a sanatorium and she would have died if Isabel had not rescued her. Rebeca's jealousy was consuming her and told Valeria that she was escaping with Salvador. Valeria tried to pretend that the reason she was leaving was because she was nervous about Andre's death.
Salvador was still in the company and congratulated Mr. Garces as the new top manager and quickly left the party and went to the office where he put his resignation letter on the computer keyboard of what I presume was Mr. Garces office.
Rebeca who was still green with jealousy, followed Valeria into the corridor and grabbed Valeria's hair. Valeria told Rebeca to leave her alone, but Rebeca continued by pulling her hair once again and called Valeria a slut. Rebeca scolded Valeria and admitted that she saw Valeria kissing Salvador and assumed that Valeria was sleeping with him.
Rebeca and Valeria got into such a bad fight that she threw Valeria onto the floor for 'sleeping with the chauffeur'. Valeria called Rebeca a bitter old woman and Rebeca slapped Valeria and was attacking her and strangling her at the same time. However Vicky and Abigail came to Valeria's rescue, but Valeria told them not to interrupt. When Vicky and Abigail left, Rebeca took hold of Valeria and threw her on to her (Valeria's) bed so that they could both wait for Isabel.
Back in Gaetana's house, Gaetana was saying goodbye to Salvador, she wept as she told him that she had already packed his bags and would miss him when he left with Valeria the following morning (for those who are wondering; So far, Gaetana genuinely loved Salvador like a mother or a friend would)
Valeria and Rebeca are still fighting. Rebeca asked Valeria how long she had been sleeping with Salvador while pulling her hair even further. Valeria told Rebeca that the reason why Rebeca was behaving in such a way was because she (Valeria) was going out with Salvador. Rebeca admitted to that fact. Valeria told Rebeca that on various occasions Salvador had asked her to marry him. Rebeca almost turned green with envy. Valeria stormed out of her room to go out and warn Salvador before Isabel found out.
However, Rebeca chased her downstairs. Walter met Valeria downstairs and tried to hold her down but Valeria gave him such a big slap that he fell several feet backwards. The fighting continued and Rebeca went to slap and punch Valeria at the same time. Valeria dodged Rebecca's slap so she bent her head at which by mistake Rebeca ended up punching Walter again across his face.
Rebeca was pulling Valeria's hair once again when Isabel came and prevented the fight. When Isabel discovered that Valeria was running away with her boyfriend, Isabel was okay with it. She thought that the reason behind Valeria's escape was the stress of Andre's tragic death. She was disappointed that Valeria did not have much faith in her but still told her to go ahead...
Until Rebeca opened her big mouth and told Isabel that Valeria was running away with Salvador. Isabel took a pause to digest the news. Isabel could not believe it, but later took hold of Valeria and told her Aunt not to follow her. The camera followed Isabel dragging Valeria through the corridor, to her (Isabel's bedroom). Valeria defended Salvador. She told Isabel that contrary to what Rebeca was saying THE TRUTH was she had never given herself or slept with Salvador as Salvador respected her. Isabel asked Valeria whether it crossed her mind why Salvador had asked her to keep their relationship a secret. Valeria told Isabel it was because he had known; people would be against their relationship.
Isabel told her THE OTHER TRUTH, that she (Isabel) also had an intense forbidden love affair, with a man, who made her feel what no-other man had made her feel, and for that man she would do anything for him...
... and unlike Valeria, she had given herself to that man and slept with him and also given him her soul, and she had done things for that man that she never knew she was capable of doing, for him she had betrayed, suffered, lied, done things she never imagined, because she had allowed herself to be dominated by him because she wanted to fight for her freedom, to marry that man.. Valeria wondered what any of Isabel's love affair had to do with her as they had nothing in common...
Isabel corrected her and told her that their affair had one thing in common ...Salvador Sorenzo!
By then Isabel and Valeria discussed the issue more, and Valeria looked as if she was now finally starting to believe....
That is how today's episode ended!
