Everyone has now gathered around, Calixto asks Todoelmundo. “Now then who were the president’s of Colombia in this century.” Juana Matilde puts on his glasses and tells him. “Alright really think.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes think really hard.” Todoelmundo tells him, “umda oh man Don Calixto. I just don’t remember a single one.” Calixto tells him, “not a single one?” Tere tells him, “but you know what the whole world knows. What happened to your memory son?” Todoelmundo tells them, “I just don’t know. Its like a mysterious hand, erased everything that I knew. Oh dear lord.” He start walking too the door, Tere follows him. “Todoelmundo Todoelmundo get back here.” Juana Matilde tells him, “maybe he got run over or something. Hey do me a favor, if something is going on explain it too me. For I don’t understand a thing, oh what has occured to poor Todoelmundo.” Calixto tells them, “he has an attack of amnesia. That is the only explination.” Juana Bautista tells him, “an attack just like that? Its just so very strange, it seems supernatural.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh Juana Bautista don’t tell me those things it scares me so.” Juana Valentina asks, “do you really think Don Calixto its amenesia that attack Todoelmundo?” Ophelia has come by, and talks to Tere. “Juana Valentina Dona Dona is asking. When are you going to visit her?” Juana Valentina utters,”me?” Calixto simply looks away.

At the dolorosa Octavio tells them, “wait so he organizes a political lunch. He has everyone from the political area to come, then he tells them. Hey I don’t want to be governor? So what was the reason that he gave?” Mauricio tells him, “nothing he announced in front of everyone. I am renouncing my candidacy for the department of sucre. That is what he said, nothing else. You want to hear something worse guys, he said he will fully support his opponent Agusto Ruda.” Poncho tells him, “no way Mauricio your father has lost his mind. He has given up politics, or they have paid him off son.” Mauricio angrily tells him, “hey leave your assumptions aside Sarmiento.” Poncho tells him, “but there’s no explanation into what he did.” Mauricio tells him, “no there isn’t.” Gualberto tells him, “that’s weird hey Poncho give him a free beer.” Poncho tells him, “sure it will be a courtesy of the house.” Octavio asks, “hey when is Poncho so generous?” Gualberto tells him, “that is something I don’t believe. Hey this morning I came for breakfast. Get this, he offered to pay for my meal. He said the same thing, courtesy of the house.” The man in the white hat gets up, goes by them then he takes off. Todoelmundo arrives, still looking stunned. Octavio tells them, “wait a minute Poncho Sarmiento a generous guy? Fuentelafria’s father quits politics, something strange is going on here.” Gualberto tells him, “well that is what I’m saying.” Poncho tells him, “hey todoelmundo get over here. Here’s a courtesy beer.” Todoelmundo tells him, “give me a double rum I need it.” Poncho tells him, “double rum this early but you only drink half a beer.” Octavio asks, “Todoelmundo do you know about a man. Who give up his political aspirations? Who decides to support his other opponent?” Todoelmundo tells him, “various causes but I can’t remember a single one.” Everyone simply stares at him.

Juana Valentina is getting ready to go out. “Now then your getting married on the 12th. So all that’s left is to find out, about the others.” Juana Bautista ask, “and what is the hurry?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I need to know when can I plan on leaving. When the last one of you gets married, I plan on leaving corozal. Well do I look ok, to go see Dona Dona?” Juana Bautista tells her, “you are who you are very beautiful.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh Juana Bautista this anxiousness doesn’t go away. What is she going to ask me? Well with you all, and your boyfriends. She asked about the marriage and the futures. What is she going to talk about? What is that senora, going to talk about with me? For you know, my situation is different than yours.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well before hand knowing the full intentions of Dona Dona. I just wouldn’t want to read her cards. She’s a undeciphered woman.”  Juana Valentina utters, “oh lord what is she going to tell me? What could she tell me?” Juana Bautista tells her, “your only going to know when the conversation is over.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I prefer not to go but…” Juana Bautista tells her, “well the thing is your an aries. You don’t advert nothing, and go towards a difficult situation.” Juana Valentina tells her, “with all of you she talked of love. With me, what could the topic be truthfully?” Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Valentina we have already spoken. Maybe the topic is the same.” Juana Valentina asks, “but what is that senora going to ask me about love. For I have no boyfriend? What are we going too see?” Juana Bautista tells her, “remember above all Dona Dona is a mother. A mother has an intuition that doesn’t fail.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I am relaxed because between Ruben and I there’s absolutely nothing period.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I really sure want to believe that Juana Valentina. But love jumps in your eyes, and you can tell. Its just simply, nothing but love.”

Miguel is with Juana Matilde on the terrace. “Well tomorrow Octavio is going to ask for Juana Manny’s hand in marriage. Soon it will be our turn.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh that sounds so delicious my love. Tell me something, why don’t we just pick the 12th on the next month. What do you think?” Miguel ask, “why the 12th?” Juana Matilde tells him, “you know the truth is its Terezalsura’s idea. You know all of us, getting married on the 12th. That’s the day Orlando and Juana Bautista is getting married. Oh what do you think my love?” Miguel tells her, “well you know that’s a great idea. One single party, and we save a lot of money.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes that’s true yes sir. Plus if Juana Calidad, and Juana Manny want to marry on that same day. We save even more money, don’t you think so?” Miguel tells him, “oh yes it sure does sound good. Hey your become an economics, your giving the nun competition.” He laughs, and Juana Matilde becomes spell bound. “Oh dear lord, what a gorgeous looking man. The man with the white hat, goes by the pink house. That is the most gorgeous looking man, I have ever seen in my life.” Miguel grabs her, “listen here your with me and your looking at another man.” Juana Matilde uttes, “me well I just saw that he just past by. Listen its like, you see a beautiful woman walking by. You stare at her, that’s all.” Miguel tells her, “listen I may look at the beautiful woman. But I am not left standing there dumbstruck.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen my love don’t be jealous? The only man I truly love in this world is you.” Then they kiss, oh man your kisses taste like dirt. Usually you taste like coconut and honey. But today its taste like dirt man. What are you eating dirt or what? Oh no?” Then she heads inside, he simply utters. “Dirt?

Calixto is visiting the judge. Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “now then I have visited the location that Margarita liked.” Calixto tells him, “oh thanks a lot comparde. So what did the man have to say?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen the man says its a go. He is going to give me the papers, all you have too do is sign them. Plus considering its you, you don’t need to be financed.” Calixto tells him, “yes just because word spread that the harvest was a great one. Oh I don’t need financing for nothing, the bank is very happy. In fact they come out of the street, offering my business comparde. Oh what the power of money?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “yes its disgraceful plus the rest what?” Calixto tells him, “yes very good Juana Bautista can recover her place. Ruben has already written to his friend in Medillin. So he can give me the details of that telescope. Now I just have to talk, to that music teacher for Juana Matilde. You know to fully arrange things with him.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well it seems at last your going to get exactly what you want.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes of course but its my full satisfaction. But my daughters fully deserve this. You saw how those girls acted, in the face of all that crisis. Now all that’s left is to find out, what Juana Calidad wants. Regarding Juana Valentina, just like last time. She’s not going to want a single thing from me. Even my last name will she accept.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well too me that sounds quite strange? Well the way she treats you, well its like the way a daughter treats her father. She loves her sisters greatly, she lives for them. She acts like a member of the family, but she won’t accept the last name. Unless…”

Calixto asks, “what comparde?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh its nothing important.” Calixto tells him, “apparently she says that she respects the man that raised her.” Judge Geremias tells him, “yes I guess that is the reason.” Calixto tells him, “the thing is with or without that last name. I have to tell her, she has to leave corozal.” Judge Gemias Guerra asks, “but why?” Calixto tells him, “well because of that promise of Dona. The one that doesn’t marry has to leave here. We know that Juana Valentina has no boyfriend. We all know that.” Juana Manny and Margarita Cruz shows up. “Oh mom at last were here, now you have everything ready for tomorrow.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes everything is ready. Well all except me, the thing is with that pagent festival there’s so much too do yet.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes there is.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “well then hello you two how are you both?” Juana Manny tells them, “hi father judge.” Judge Geremias Guerra utters, “hello Juana Manny.” Calixto asks, “listen I heard you like a location for the beauty salon. Congratulations, and you can count on them. Now then daughter, did you find out more about Todoelmundo.” Juana Manny tells him, “nothing.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “what happened with Todoelmundo?” Calixto tells them, “Todoelmundo has lost his memory. He has forgotten everything that he used to know.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “but that is impossible.” Calixto tells him, “he seems to me like he’s got amnesia. I’m just saying, well I really have too go. The road is a long one, I have much too do.” Juana Manny tells him, “remember tomorrow they are asking for my hand.” Calixto tells her, “how can I forget that tomorrow I’ll be coming here. On time before the meal, I am also very afraid. Bye comparde, Margarita, bye daughter.” Juana Manny utters, “yes sir.”

Margarita Cruz tells Geremias, “dear I brought you your sweet cake the one’s that you love. Oh dear I contacted your uncles, I called them.” Juana Manny asks, “and what did they say?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “the one that talked was me. I told them about me getting remarried.” Juana Manny asks, “and how did they take the news?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well how can I say this Manny. The thing is I was very tense and nervous. You know thinking, about the reaction they were going too have. They were simply terrorized thinking, well that I was going to get remarried. But no, I was left quite surprised. I told them all about Geremias here, and they simply loved it. They were even pleasant about it, oh they said even they were coming to the wedding.” Juana Manny tells her, “mom they took the news just like that? Then they congratulated you?” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “and why shouldn’t they?” Juana Manny tells him, “oh judge you don’t know my uncles. But why would they react that way? Them not mentioning nothing?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes it did surprise me so very much. But they were very relaxed.” Juana Manny tells him, “that story I don’t believe very much. Then the judge acts weird, he stares with lust at Juana Manny’s legs. Judge why are you looking at me like that?” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “looking at me like what?” Juana Manny tells her, “look forget it mom ok I’ll be calling you ok bye Judge. Ok I’m going to leave this bag in the front.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes in the front table there bye Manny.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “why did she become so very nervous?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh Germias she’s just nervous that’s all. Tomorrow they are going to ask her, for her hand in marriage.” Juana Manny leaves the house, the man with the white hat walks by. Juana Manny utters, “and what movie did they take him out.”

Manuel Efe is driving around, when he comes face to face with the man in the white hat. He utters, “daaa.” Then drives off, the man simply grins.

Manuel Efe arrives at the salguero house. He stares and stares at the door. Ruben asks, “what have you seen a ghost?” Manuel Efe utters, “hi cousin.” Ruben tells him, “I didn’t except to be seeing you around here?” Manuel Efe tells him, “I didn’t expect me being here either. Well I came by to give my aunt a message.” Ruben tells him, “I’ll call him oh how did it go with the man that was looking for you? So who was he?” Manuel Efe tells him, “well it was a man that had called. I completely forgot that I had called him.” Ruben tells him, “listen cousin usually you talk twisted but today your more worse than anything.” Dona Dona comes out of her room, “oh he hasn’t arrived yet. Oh hello nephew.” Manuel Efe tells her, “aunt I spoke to Mr. Savareti he told me he’s very busy. But he will try to give you the dress before the day of the wedding.” Dona Dona nervously bites her fingernails, “but what do you mean. He’s going to do the impossible, he hasn’t even come here. For me to show him, the model dress I want him to make for me. Plus he hasn’t taken my measurements.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well that’s what I told him.” Ruben tells her, “hey what’s the big deal put on the same dress as before.” Dona Dona tells him, “its for more than that. This concerns your wedding. If Mr. Savareti doesn’t comply, so what am I suppose to do now? What am I going to wear, well in my pajamas.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes that is what I was thinking aunt. I suggest we buy a dress, well that’s already made and ready. If you want, I can take you in my car to Barranquilla. Its no problem.” Ruben tells them, “well then I’m going to get a drink and come back.” Dona Dona tells him, “you know nephew that’s not a bad idea. Let me think.” Manuel Efe notices she’s quite twitchy. “Aunt are you very nervous?” Dona Dona tells him, “me nervous?” Manuel Efe tells her, “I remember before. When you were quite nervous you would eat your fingernails. Now once again you are eating your nails. Why are you so very nervous?” Dona Dona tells him, “well its for Ruben Calixto’s wedding. Or don’t you think I shouldn’t be, the day is almost upon us. I have no dress to put on.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes aunt.” Ruben returns, “what have you changed topics already?” Dona Dona tells him, “no we’re still discussing your wedding Ruben Calixto. Then she begins to feel the earth move, she falls down on her chair. Hey what was that?” Ruben asks, “feel what?” Dona Dona tells him, “didn’t you feel like a earthquake?” Ruben tells her, “its your impression that the earth is moving.” Manuel Efe very scared looks around.

Juana Valentina is going back and forth, she’s quite nervous. Juana Caliad yells out, “I’m coming.” Juana Valentina asks, “and where are you going Juana Calidad?” Juana Calidad tells her, “I don’t know I just want to go for a walk for a bit.” Juana Valentina ask, “now I would like your blessing I really do need it?” Juana Calidad asks, “and why are you so nervous what’s going on?” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen its nothing I just need your blessing. So then nothing can happen too me, I just need it now go ahead please.” Juana Calidad tells her, “Juana Valentina I’m not a priest nor a nun.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey what’s wrong with you stop fooling around and bless me. I am in a hurry girl.” Juana Calidad asks, “well what’s wrong with you? Why are you so nervous?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’m going to talk to Dona Dona hurry it up.”Juana Calidad tells her, “alright may god protect you.” She can’t move her hand to do the blessing. In the end Juana Valentina asks, “girl what’s wrong?” Juana Calidad tells her, “nothing is wrong.” Juana Valentina ask, “and you what’s wrong with you.”

At the dolorosa, Todoelmundo continues too drink. Poncho tells him, ” listen man you’ve had five rums so far. Can’t you remember nothing? What are the countries of the world?” Todoelmundo tells him, “I just know the fall of the berlin wall. Well its like everything is now magical. Its like I know africa and europe, the rest are all a blur.” Then there’s an earthquake. Everyone takes off, and leaves the bar. Poncho asks, “is this an earthquake?” Todoelmundo tells him, “it sure looks like it.” Poncho tells him, “I’m more afraid of this. Than a drunk lugging a machete. When it stops, they return to the dolorosa. Well at least nothing has happened with the business.” Todoelmundo tells him, “it might be the end of the world.” Poncho asks, “what the year of the earthquakes.” Todoelmundo tells him, “I’ve never gone through this experience. Its simply written down.” Poncho asks, “named of what?” Todoelmundo tells him, “I remember some parts of the region before the earthquakes but I don’t remember any details. You know Poncho, I’m very afraid of what’s going too happen.”

The guys are all together, with Mauricio’s father. “Listen dad, this time around you could have won.” Gualberto tells him, “yes Mr. Fuentelafria we called everyone they would have voted for you.” Octavio tells him, “yes we talked too everyone.” Poncho runs to them, “hey did you hear the earthquake?” The guys utter, “what?” Poncho repeats, “but the earth moved.” Mauricio tells them, “listen guys we’re going to stop going to drink at the dolorosa. They are serving us drinks that are tainted. See there’s the proof.” They all laugh, Poncho tells them. “Listen too me, I am not crazy, drunk nor am I not intoxicated. The earth has moved just like that. It moved like the earth was jello.” Octavio tells him, “listen it probably was Lasador you all know. That yes it moves even the dead.” Lasador yells out, “hey that’s true.” Poncho tells them, “very funny listen everyone felt the earthquake.” Gualberto tells him, “listen what the whole world. We didn’t feel nothing.” Poncho tells him, “I was with Egidio and we were trying to figure out. Why he couldn’t remember nothing. Then the earth began too move.” Mauricio tells him, “listen we’re here trying to figure out. What has happened too my father, with his campaign. You and your head full of earthquakes.” Poncho utters, “hey if you believe me or not that’s your business.”

Gualberto utters, “what is that? Saint Juana Calidad Salguero has arrived.” Mauricio utters, “well hello my love.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well saint antonia maria clarice.” Mauricio tells her, “oh may her saintly name be blessed.” Juana Caliad asks, “well I came by to ask well. On our next beach trip, is this suit ok? She then shocks them all, when she opens her dress. Revealing a yellow bikini. So do you like this or no?” Octavio asks, “how about we take another picture?” Mauricio and the guys are speechless. Juana Calidad asks, “Mauricio you haven’t told me if you like it or not?” Mauricio tells her, “oh dear that’s very impressive.” Juana Calidad goes too him, “I knew you were going to like it. Then she proceeds to kiss him, take care boys bye.” Poncho asks, “are you sure she was going to be a nun?” Octavio utters, “may his saintly name be blessed.” The man with the white hat is just standing there. Juana Calidad smiles and waves at them. Octavio asks, “hey between us guys not to offend. What exactly happened?” Mauricio simply continues waving.

Over at the salguero house, Ruben is quite bored and asks. “What about the meal? Let me tell you, its better than the meal before Rubencho.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes its quite delicious.” Manuel Efe tells him, “what my thing is I’m very worried over your honeymoon Rubencho. A month is too short, to get too know someone. Well you know.” Someone’s at the door. Juana Valentina has arrived, “hello seno how are you doing?” Dona Dona tells her, “hey don’t act friendly with me. Come on in.” Manuel Efe gets up, “Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina utters, “hi Manuel Efe how are you today?” Manuel Efe tells her, “your in your home.” Juana Valentina coldly tells Ruben, “hello Ruben how’s it going?” Ruben utters, “hello Juana Valentina.” The two stare at one another for a minute. While Dona Dona, continues to stare at the two.

Dona Dona takes Juana Valentina towards the sewing room. “Come inside and sit down please. I have been talking with your sisters, and their boyfriends.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I am aware of that.” Dona Dona tells him, “your sisters have told me about their plans for the future. The four are planning on getting married, it will be in little time.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes I know but what I don’t understand is. Why are you so interested in our lives?” Dona Dona tells her, “I wouldn’t call it interest. I would say, I would like to be advised everything that’s going on around me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well before you weren’t like that Dona Dona. Plus you have never been interested. In fact in getting close too us, well what is the change.” Dona Dona tells her, “the one that asked you too come was me. I’m the one that has come to ask you questions. Plus make commentaries.” Juana Valentina tells her, “fine then ask me anything you want I’m listening. Dona Dona smiles warmly at her, and gets up and gets ready to give her a hug then she stops. Are you feeling alright Dona?” Dona Dona tells her, “oh I was going to get something from here. Oh its fine, it doesn’t matter I’ll look for it later. She sits down, now then where were we talking about again?” Juana Valentina tells her, “you were asking about plans?” Dona Dona repeats, “yes you know as the big sister. All the plans regarding the rest of the juanas or no?”

Manuel Efe asks Ruben, “so she’s meeting up with all of them?” Ruben tells him, “yes and they’re boyfriends.” Manuel Efe asks, “and what are they talking about?” Ruben tells him, “well not exactly but they are discussing the future.” Manuel Efe tells him, “my guess is my aunt is trying to get them to leave corozal.” Ruben tells him, “well no they are discussing their plans here in corozal. She has been asking, about their wedding and such.” Manuel Efe ask, “well then what about Juana Valentina well the thing is. We have discussed marriage but, we haven’t made concrete plans for the future.” Ruben tells him, “yes cousin you have already told me.” Manuel Efe tells him, “daaa listen I know that you like me. Well would do anything to find out, what’s occurring in that sewing room. Right this minute.”

Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Dona Dona why don’t you get down to the grain already. Ever since I arrived, all you have talked about. Well are my sisters, their boyfriends, their wedding plans. I am sure, that you asked me to come here. To discuss something else.” Dona Dona tells her, “I just want you too understand. That your sisters, have confided in me their plans. I do approve of them.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes.” Dona Dona asks, “and you are you in love?” Juana Valentina tells her, “that is none of your business.” Dona Dona asks again, “are you in love yes or no?” Juana Valentina tells her, “like I said that is a part of my private life. I don’t have to comment it with you.” Dona Dona asks, “are you hiding something?” Juana Valentina tells her, “like I said this is my issue Dona Dona. Plus if I had something too hide, I really wouldn’t be telling you or yes.” Dona Dona tells her, “I know that you don’t have a boyfriend. That doesn’t signify that your heart, belongs to a man.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no man heart belongs to me anymore.” Dona Dona asks, “anymore?” Juana Valentina tells her, “its crying because its empty. Listen its sad to cry for love, but is sad to cry when you don’t have it.” Dona Dona tells her, “well I don’t know how to take your answer?” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Dona Dona for me you don’t have too worry. I appreciate that you have been very nice towards my sisters. That you are now worried, about their well being and all but. I am used too taking care of myself. I don’t need anybody to tell me, what I can or not feel.” Dona Dona tells her, “careful with that tone of yours.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I am taking care of it. I simply want to tell you, that you don’t have too worry. My future, is nothing you should worry about. The only thing that I want too do, is leave here. Leave in peace you, your family, and leave your lives do you hear me. If that’s everything, then I’m going now excuse me.” Dona Dona yells out, “oh get back here..”

The girls are on the terrace, Juana Manny tells them. “Octavio tells me, its a real shame that Mauricio’s father isn’t govener. Even though they are always bothering Mauricio with that. They assure me, that man is good and could have done so much for this department.” Juana Calidad tells them, “the one that was completely surprised was Mauricio.” Juana Bautista tells them, “I think we were all affected.” Juana Matilde tells them, “the thing is I don’t know nothing about politics. Well I’m just saying. I don’t know.” The man with the white hat, has brought some good looking guys. Juana Calidad utters, “oh yes they are like hot cakes.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh yes lets go to the bakery and buy one for each of us. Then she looks at the guys. Oh man these guys are gorgeous.” Juana Bautista tells them, “hey if you like you all can come on inside. So I’m an Aquarius.” Juana Calidad utters, “hey this one’s name is Juan.” The man in the white hat smiles and just walks away.

Calixto has arrived home, and heads straight for a rum. “I just couldn’t tell Juana Valentina. I wonder why would she be talking too your mother.” Ruben tells him, “well truthfully I don’t know? Juana Valentina left without saying goodbye. Then my mother left, and simply went to her bedroom and closed the door. Neither said a word.” Calixto tells him, “well maybe Dona has changed her mind. That is why they had the conversation, maybe that’s why Juana Valentina might not have to leave.” Ruben utters, “oh I really hope so father. Well it would really be sad for my sisters, that they had too separate.” Calixto tells him, “well I’ll bring up the topic later to Dona. Then we will see what occurred.” Ruben tells him, “now then father the bank contacted me. The second cheque has already been sent.” Calixto tells him, “oh that’s great. Oh good I’m going to see, if I can get an appointment to see Mr. Gonzalez. He’s a bit costly, but one of the best medics of the region.” Calixto asks, “a doctor for what your not feeling well old man?” Calixto tells him, “no my guess is its sugar in the blood. I felt a bit almost like the earth was moving. I lost my equilibrium.” Ruben utters, “umda.” Calixto tells him, “oh you don’t have too worry about a thing. I don’t think its very grave. In any case, its best that Dr. Gonzalez gives me a check up.” Ruben tells him, “father I don’t think it has nothing too do with a doctor. Oh no, the thing is my mother felt it. It was an earthquake.” Calixto asks, “earthquake? Yes I’m guessing that I felt that.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Manny is telling two guys. “You know something, if that woman wasn’t a tractor. She would have gone down on the first round. Well if you had been there, I would have had more inspiration it would have been very interesting.” Juana Calidad tells a guy, “we could go to the beach. Or a place where we can be alone, so what do you think?” The guy utters, “I’d like that.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh you have a beautiful smile like an angel.” Juana Bautista touches a guy’s hands and tells him, “here is marked our encounter. See destiny wanted it to happen.” Juana Matilde tells one, “I would just love that you join me on my tour. But I just have too tell you, this tour is going to be a very long one. Well its a long one, I have too promote my first record. So would you care to come with?”

The guys all are gathered, and head straight to the girls. Poncho tells them, “hey if your all thinking about getting married on the same day. Well in the same days, why don’t we have one big bachelor party. We can have the reception at the dolorosa, but let me tell you I’m not going to be serving drinks for free.” Gualberto tells them, “see Poncho has returned to himself. Listen the breakfast you treated me, well I’m going to pay for it with my own money. Hey no more courtesy business.” Octavio tells him, “no listen if you want to give me courtesy breakfasts. I’d kindly receive them Poncho.” Orlando tells them, “you know guys I’m very worried over the case of Todoelmundo. Its just not normal, a man like him could forget everything just like that. Its just not logical.” Octavio tells him, “well you heard Don Calixto he says it might be amnesia.” Mauricio stops and sees the girls on the terrace. Orlando tells them, “hey I respect Don Calixto but that can’t be amnesia. Well if it was that were true, he would have forgotten all of our names.” Mauricio utters, “what the devil is that?” Poncho tells them, “listen are those the juanas and they are flirting with other guys. Or is this a vision?” Angrily Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “this is how I wanted to find you. Ave maria purisima, he get her inside I want to talk to you. You buddy take off.” Octavio yells out, “Juana Manny you get over here.” Orlando yells out, “Juana Bautista get over here.” Miguel yells out, “Juana Matilde get over here. Juana Matilde kisses the guy, which infuriates Miguel even more. Hey no kiss, get the hell out of here guys.” Orlando pushes the guys away, “hey man you don’t know who you are messing with get out.” The guys simply laugh, and they go over to the man in the white hat. Poncho utters, “did you see their faces they are don juanas.” Gualberto tells him, “yes don juan’s.” Poncho asks, “can I tell you something?” Gualberto tells him, “is it what I’m thinking?” Poncho tells him, “man we have really saved ourselves for not being the juanas boyfriends. Man they’re a bunch of flirts.” The man with the white hat grins, and then walks away.

The girls inside, are now back too normal. Juana Bautista tells Orlando, “the truth is I don’t know what happened. We were outside, and we saw these guys. I don’t know, but before we knew it we got close to them and began talking too them.” Orlando angrily tells her, “oh how beautiful you lot see some guys. You happily go to them, and start talking too them. Without knowing why, well why did you lot do it? How could you have done that too me?” Juana Manny tells them, “hey those guys were very sympatico. So did my sisters, so what is the big deal so we talked too them without thinking.” Octavio tells her, “oh yes you weren’t thinking there’s no doubt. Oh yeah firecracker.” Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “you did the same too me. Hey I have never ever was waiting, that you would do something like that to me. I’m so disappointed in you.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh Mauricio forgive me I just don’t know what’s happened too me Mauricio.” Juana Manny tells Octavio, “my scary frog listen by an impulse I talked to that guy. The important part is, the one that I love is you.” Juana Bautista tells Orlando, “I you Orlando. What we did, well it was outside of logic. But I just simply can’t explain what occured. The thing that’s clear, is that I do love you.” Juana Matilde tells them, “listen guys let me tell you something. Stop putting so much mystery into this guys.” Miguel tells her, “Juana Matilde its not the first time. You didn’t let go one day, to once again throw that guy in my face.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen Miguel in the first place do stop yelling at me. If I did see that guy, well I I thought he was attractive that’s all. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. It was like he had come from a different world. Hey I don’t kiss anybody like this. Then the girls hug and kiss their beaus. See the only man I do love is you. See the kiss you gave me, is once again coconut and honey.”

Over at the salguero house, Maria Delia is rambling on about the honeymoon. “All that’s left is our honeymoon trip.” Calixto tells her, “hey I’ll fix that up tomorrow morning.” Ruben tells him, “no no no what passports. We’re heading to cartagena by land, we will stay only for two days. Then take a car, to santa marta that’s all.” Maria Delia angrily tells him, “listen Rubensito if only you knew how to fly a plane. We would get there and everywhere, so very easy.” Ruben angrily tells her, “listen once we marry you will stop this nonsense of me flying a plane. Is that clear?” Maria Delia begins crying, “oh Rubensito don’t get angry with me.” Calixto tells her, “well Ruben likes his feet on the ground. Hey don’t let him climb up in the heavens.” Maria Delia tells him, “well if Rubensito flies a plane. Takes care of the family ranch, well everything will be comfortable if he knew how to fly a plane.” Ruben angrily tells her, “listen Maria Delia if you want a pilot than don’t marry me. Marry my cousin then.” Dona Dona comes running in, “did you feel that earthquake. It just started shaking, didn’t you feel it.” Calixto tells them, “hey this time around I didn’t feel nothing.”

Juana Valentina is now at home with Juana Bautista. “The thing is I don’t know, if she knows or not? I just don’t know.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I just don’t know why are you saying this?” Juana Valentina tells her, “you know the questions she was asking me. If I was hiding something? Hey one doesn’t ask that question, if one doesn’t have their suspicions.” Juana Bautista tells her, “oh yes that is so true.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I just don’t know what happened. In one minute, I wanted to tell Dona Dona. Yes Ruben and I are in love, but that’s now over its in the past all of it. Fortunately I calmed myself down. I controlled myself, and then left. I left before, I talked so very much. Oh it was something ugly.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well at least your out of that older sister.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh yes oh brother dear me. Oh these things.” Juana Bautista scared looks at her, “Valentina look at this.” Juana Valentina utters, “oh dear lord what does that signify? We’re going to get another misfortune, considering now that everything is getting better.” All the cards are blank.

Tere is with the girls in the living room. “Wait you mean all of you did this? None of you even talked about doing this? None of you made an agreement?” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes Tere it was quite strange. Its like it came from inside here. Its like it was spontaneous they say.” Tere tells her, “oh dear I’m starting to get scared girl.” Juana Calidad blesses herself, “oh Terezalsura don’t say that your scaring me.” Tere tells her, “its just that its so strange. Todoelmundo forgetting everything, just like it happened over night. So quickly, then you lot acting this way going after a bunch of strangers.”

Juana Bautista checks all her cards, they are blank. Juana Valentina ask, “Juana Bautista why is this like this? Who did this?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I don’t know I don’t understand nothing Juana Valentina. Nobody touches my cards, now what’s worse is we won’t know. What’s going to happen, its now gone deaf?” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh this isn’t normal oh dear lord.”


Morning has come, and Tere is fixing everyone coffee. Juana Manny comes down, and Tere smiles. “Oh my dear Juana Manny today is your big day.” Juana Manny asks, “yes Tere hey turn around look at me. Tere asks, “alright look around.” Juana Manny twirls then asks, “so what do you think?” Tere tells her, “your divine now dear care for some coffee.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes thanks. Well I bought this over at Rosa Maria’s place. Well this was a gift from my father. They are sending him the bill. Oh Tere, do you think Octavio is going to like this?” Tere tells her, “hey Juana Manny if Octavio doesn’t like it. Well he’s blind.” Juana Manny simply laughs, then hits her arm. “Oh you and your things, thank you Tere.” Tere tells her, “I’m so happy that your happy.” Juana Manny tells her, “well thank you and thanks for the coffee. So do you like my make-up as well?” Tere tells her, “now lets see? Oh yes very beautiful, but you have to fix your hair.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh yes of course. I’m going to finish fixing myself up now. So then later it won’t be so late bye.” Tere utters, “ok my love bye. Once gone she looks upwards, oh if only my Juana Valentina was happy. It seems that won’t happen, its just impossible.”

(The shirt is missing some buttons. Unless that’s the style.)

Juana Matilde shows up, nicely dressed. “Good morning Tere.” Tere tells her, “Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde kisses her cheek, “so how are you girl?” Tere asks, “and what are you doing up early. Already nicely dressed girl?” Juana Matilde tells her, “I don’t know I got up I just got this weird feeling. Well of fixing myself up. Its just so very weird no?” Tere tells her, “oh yes strange coming from you. Well then care for some coffee.” Juana Matilde tells her, “sure but just sit there I’ll fix it myself. Oh there’s a cup, now then Tere. I have to tell you something quite important. Now then don’t you worry, about fixing my bed or my room. I woke up early today, I cleaned my bedroom.” Tere is quite shocked.

Juana Calidad comes out of her bedroom. She’s dressed very provocative, Mauricio is quite shocked. “Girl what is all this about?” Juana Calidad simply kisses him, and asks. “So how are you?” Mauricio tells her, “very surprised. Hey Cadi did we have a meeting or something?’ Juana Calidad tells him, “no I just wanted to change my look.” Mauricio stares at her behind and utters, “change you look? Oh my life? Well you are looking quite good.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well thank you.” Mauricio tells her, “well Cadi last night I talked to my parents. Well they would like it, well that me asking for your hand. Could it be possible well next Saturday.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well then I’ll make sure that Ruben tells Dona Dona.” Mauricio asks, “Ruben? My love why not talk to her directly? Why don’t you just call her?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes its really direct but. No I just don’t have the guts.” Mauricio tells her, “well Cadi Dona Dona was very nice to us or don’t you think so?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes but I just don’t know how she’s going to react. Maybe she will get bothered, that I am calling her over the phone. Just so she can ask for my hand as well.” Mauricio tells her, “really.” Then Juana Calidad goes to him, and begins kissing him non-stop.

Over at the salguero house, Ruben is dressed for the wedding. Dona Dona tells him, “now then son all that’s left is that it gets ironed. Well you are at the doors of getting married. It seems weird no?” Ruben tells her, “mother I am getting married. Well like I promised you, I would and that’s final. Maria Delia will be my wife, she will give you as many grandchildren. Well as you want, but please don’t ask me for anything else. Well then what did you discuss with Juana Valentina.” Dona Dona tells him, “various topics. The only thing clear, was that she was very much in love with someone. That someone, well broke her heart. Now she doesn’t love him, her love has become loathing.” Ruben asks, “so she told you just like that clearly?” Dona Dona tells him, “no but I’m a great interpreter.”

Later that day, Ruben goes to the pink house. Tere opens the door, “oh hello Ruben.” Ruben tells her, “hello Terezalsura.” Juana Valentina yells out, “hey Terezalsura.” Ruben tells her, “I have come to talk too my sisters.” Tere tells him, “well the only one here is Juana Valentina. For Juana Manny is now, well at the fancy lunch for her hand in marriage. The others left, but I don’t know where.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I’m on my way out. If you want, come back later tonight if you want to talk to the rest.” Ruben tells her, “fine then you tell my sisters what I want to tell them. Definitely I am getting married on the 23rd.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes we are already aware of that date. For the bride has already given us. Well thank you” Ruben tells her, “yes its a date that couldn’t be changed.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well then that’s good then.” Ruben tells her, “Juana Valentina thank you very much. Thank you very much, for suggesting to Maria Delia. That she should forgive me, and that we don’t cancel our wedding.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen you don’t have to thank me for nothing Ruben.” Ruben tells her, “then it will be no problem that my sisters attend that ceremony.” Juana Valentina tells him, “alright and you be very happy Ruben Salguero.” They stare at one another, while Tere simply watches.

At the club, Margarita Cruz is telling everyone. “Well if the celebration works well, the constitution of the pageant. We can have this every single year, and at this time.” Calixto tells her, “oh yes but it won’t be as opportunistic than this year. We’re going to celebrate, the resurrection of the region and the total place of the sabanas.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “you know something that plague affected lots of people. Well I really think, we should be very carefully and prepared. So that thing doesn’t happen again.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “well the government is using what occurred in corozal. Have a center of studies, to be in charge of the vigilance and control all of the agriculture problems of the entire region. Well that is what the mayor told me.” Calixto tells them, “hey I’ll wait to see it before I will believe it.” Juana Manny glances at a very nervous Octavio. “Excuse me that I’m interrupting the conversation. Well the thing is, Octavio needs to tell you something.” Octavio tells them, “well yes now all of us know why were all here.” Juana Manny tells him, “yes scary frog they know why we’re here. Just tell them good.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “dear let the poor boy say in his own words.” Octavio tells her, “thank you Dona Margarita. Well as you all know, Juana Manny have been dating for quite some time. I really do love Juana Manny, for Juana Manny I will die.”

Margarita Cruz tells him, “well let me tell you that Juana Manny loves you as well. You are properly corresponded.” Octavio tells her, “thank you senora Margarita. Well what I want to ask you, well the thing is. Well Don Calixto, Dona Margarita and Judge Geremias Guerra. Here in front of my parents, I want to ask you, for Juana Manny’s hand so she can be my wife. I promise you, I will love her so very much. I will take care of her, with me she’s going to be very happy. For the rest of her life.” Calixto tells him, “now Octavio I have known you ever since you were born. I know your an honest hardworking boy. Well there’s nothing much to say about you. Well I just desire, that your marriage is very happy. May it last a very long time.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “well I am going to talk from me and Margarita. See she’s quite emotional, well she can’t do it. Juana Manny is for Margarita, the most important person in the world. We can say her entire life, well for me its the closest that I’m going to have a child. You all know, I am the godfather of Ruben Calixto. Well I am very happy, that Juana Manny joins a good family like yours the Portoreals. Who have always lived in corazal, who have distinguished yourself as dignified.” Octavio tells him, “thank you judge that was very kind.” Margarita Cruz crying tells them, “well I with love want to say from my heart. I really do wish you lots of luck.” Octavio tells her, “thank you senora Margarita.” Margarita tells her, “but you better take care of her.” Calixto tells them, “hey now why don’t we make a toast to the occasion.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells Margarita, “now Margarita you can’t drink with alcohol for your taking pills.” Margarita tells him, “hey the devil today with the medicines salute. Yes too Octavio and Juana Manny, such a beautiful couple. Juana Manny then burst out into uncontrollable laughter. Margarita Cruz tells them, it must be the nerves. Oh the poor thing.”

At the dolorosa Todoelmundo sits down with the gang. “Now then I was over taking a package to sincelejo. You can’t image who I saw, I saw Yolanda Del Cabrales. Apparently she’s the talk of the town lately.” Juana Calidad tells them, “listen I don’t like to talk ill about people. But that woman was looking for it.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes that’s true Juana Calidad. That strange attitude of hers please. Well please tell us this gossip.” Todoelmundo tells them, “no gossip but she’s the talk of sincelejo.” Juana Valentina asks, “now then what is everyone saying that we don’t know.” Todoelmundo tells them, “Yolanda Del Cabrales is going through a difficult moment.” Juana Valentina ask, “what do you mean? Why?” Todoelmundo tells him, “well first the cows stopped giving milk instead they are giving out water. Later she got the worst rash of hiccups, they were terrible. It hasn’t stopped in days, then her fingers nails well they continue to grow. She has to cut them every three hours. Now they say, she has become bald. Now she can’t say the letter hota instead she says mmm.” Poncho tells him, “the hota as a m. Oh no way todoelmundo your joking.” Todoelmundo tells them, “no way I’m serious.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey don’t come here todoelmundo with your jokes and lies.” Todoelmundo tells them, “yes and why would I lie you tell me.” Juana Calidad tells him, “todoelmundo is telling the truth. I guess that god is punishing her.” Juana Bautista tells them, “she has all the characteristics of bad luck.” Tere tells them, “yes that doesn’t sound like good luck. I won’t argue with that.” Juana Bautista tells her, “all her bad luck will disappear in seven years.”

Juana Calidad tells her, “oh no Juana Bautista don’t say that. It scares me so.” Juana Bautista tells them, “now on the date of the anniversary of our father and Dona Dona. A mirror was smashed, that signifies seven years of bad luck. But what we didn’t know, was who it was going to fall upon. But its wasn’t clear, now we know its Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Juana Valentina tells her, “its just your suspicions girl.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen all the suspicions eventually have a grain of truth Juana Valentina.” Todoelmundo tells them, “the bad luck because of one breaks a mirror. This is a superstition that’s quite strange and old. Plus it was made before, the mirrors we know were formed into ever existed.” Tere utters, “oh Todoelmundo?” Todoelmundo tells them, “the first mirrors were used by the Greeks. Egyptians, and the Hebrews. They were made out of copper and metals. Gold and bronze as well, they made them from unbreakable glass.” Tere yells out, “Todoelmundo you are at last recovering your memory.” Todoelmundo tells them, “it was also back in christ’s era. The greeks, well they created captoromancia.” Juana Matilde asks, “todoelmundo now its clear too all of us. That your once again back too normal. Now then please, you don’t have to show off to us alright. I am begging you alright.” Todoelmundo tells them, “I’m just saying what the entire world knows.” The gang laugh and cheer, Juana Matilde tells them. “Three cheers and applause for Todoelmundo.” Poncho tells them, “I’m glad he’s better.” Then the man in the white hat arrives, Mauricio asks. “Hey that guy in the white hat isn’t he a bit strange?” Juana Valentina tells them, “strange no but that man is sure attractive or no?” Miguel utters, “attractive?” Tere asks, now then why don’t we start something else. Who were all the presidents, of the republic of colombia. Of the 20th century.” Juana Bautista notices something, Todoelmundo smiles and gets ready. “Now then the presidents of the republic of colombia. Of the 20th century, lets begin with. Well then…” Orlando asks, “now then don’t fool around tell us.” Todoelmundo freaks out, “I’ve forgotten.” Gualberto utters, “how could he lose his memory again?”

Ruben is miserable in his bedroom. He plays with the string of his bowtie, and stares sadly at it. Dona Dona enters, “10 cents for your thoughts.” Ruben tells her, “mother you are trying to buy thoughts very cheaply mother.” Dona Dona tells him, “getting too know my son. It should turn out free or no? Are you worried?” Ruben tells her, “no now there’s nothing too worry about. Everything will go back the way things were.” Dona Dona tells him, “no for your going to get married soon.” Ruben tells her, “oh mother before I was also about to get married.” Dona Dona tells him, “but you don’t seem so excited about this. On the contrary, you look very dismayed.” Ruben tells her, “no I just have a doubt but the thing is once I marry Maria Delia. I will be in charge of the business aspects of the Espina’s. I won’t have time to help out my old man. Mother I do insist he must diversify. He can’t spend his entire life, working and producing off the land.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes you going to have to take some time to deal with Mr. Salguero’s business. But you will not have any worries. I mean five, your step-sisters.” Ruben tells her, “yes they aren’t going to be my problems any longer. They will be their husbands.” Dona Dona tells him, “less the oldest for she hasn’t told you. Where she’s going when she leaves corozal, because yes she must leave.” Ruben tells her, “we haven’t talk about that. I think its best that way, I just don’t want to know either.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes sometimes its best this way. That one never finds certain things out.”

Back at the dolorosa Juana Valentina remembers Ruben’s words. “If you want me married, I will be.” Juana Matilde asks, “hey don’t you think so Juana Valentina. Hey wake up girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “Juana Matilde I didn’t hear.” Juana Matilde tells her, “I am talking here giving my opinion. We have to take Todoelmundo to the hospital. He needs a full examination on his head. Hey its impossible, that he forgets things so easily.” Poncho tells him, “listen were forcing him so let him say things nice and slow.” Juana Matilde tells him, “he just has a worm in his head.” Poncho ask, “lets go back to the history of the mirrors that were you telling us.” Miguel tells him, “yes that’s it.” Poncho tells him, “start that ball rolling again. You were talking about seven years of bad luck.” Todoelmundo tells them, “I just forgot.” Everyone start talking at once, the man in the white hat takes off. Juana Valentina tells him, “think carefully.” Todoelmundo gets back up, “the president’s of colombia are. From the back to the front are the 20th century are. Ernesto San Pizano, Cesar Gaviria Trujillio, Virgillio Barco Vargas, Belisariou Bentancur Cuartas. Julio Cesar Turbay Ayala, Victor mosquera chaux. Alfonso Lopez Michaelsen, Indalecio lievano aguirre. Misael Pastran Borrero, and Rafael Azuero Manchola. Gustavo Rojas Pinilla.” Juana Bautista tells them, “look did you take notice of something. The man arrived, Todoelmundo forgot everything. But when he left, Todoelmundo began remembering. Didn’t you see him leave?” Juana Calidad tells them, “oh virgin from the heavens. Don’t you start scaring us once again Juana Bautista.”


Mauricio tells them, “well guess who just arrived.” Juana Manny and Octavio are smiling away. Juana Manny tells them, “what can I say everything went quite well yes sir. My scary frog was more scared, than I was. Then gang laugh, she continues. Now then we’re going to get married on the 12. Well I mean if you permit us, to get married with you two.” Orlando tells them, “yes.” Juana Bautista tells them, “well too me its quite stupendous. They all begin to clap. Plus if anybody else, well wants to join us. Well they are all welcomed.” Mauricio asks, “hey brother you better tell us everything. Every little detail that occurred my brother. I’m just wondering, what your face looked like. When you had to sacrifice yourself.” Octavio tells him, “hey don’t you make fun. Soon your going to be in the same boat as I was. Oh yes everything turned out quit well. The only thing weird was, that Juana Manny had an attack of laughter.” Juana Valentina asks, “what bout of laughter?” Juana Manny tells them, “no no no well I don’t know it was strange. I began laughing, I couldn’t stop. Plus I didn’t even want to laugh. It was quite weird.” Octavio tells them, “she laughed for 11 minutes. Then she became quite serious, as if she was attending a funeral.”

Later that night, Calixto goes and visits the pink house. Juana Valentina tells him, “well hello Don Calixto how are you doing? Would you like to sit down?” Calixto tells her, “fine dear now I tried calling before. Nobody was home.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well we were all at the dolorosa with the guys. Juana Manny and Octavio arrived. Well then they began celebrating, well the asking of the hand.” Calixto asks, “so how did it go with Dona?” Juana Valentina tells her, “well fine the conversation wasn’t very long. It was about my future, and my sentimental feelings. That was that.” Calixto asks, “so what did you tell her if I may be so bold too ask?” Juana Valentina coldly tells him, “that is private and its part of my personal life.” Calixto tells her, “yes I fully understand I didn’t want too bother you.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey its no bother father. Well the thing is, well my feelings are just mine that’s all. Its just like that.” Calixto tells her, “dear that word came out nice.” Juana Valentina asks, “which one?” Calixto tells her, “you called me father.” Juana Valentina tells him, “I think its time we both clear up a few things. Don Calixto, as you know my sisters are planning to get married. It will be on the 12th.” Calixto asks, “and what about that?” Juana Valentina tells him, “well they are going to go live with their husbands. They are going to be organized, they are going to dedicate themselves. Well in what they do want to do, well that’s thanks too you and your gifts. Then after that date, I plan on leaving.”

Calixto asks, “what do you mean your leaving?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes I plan on leaving. I am leaving corozal Don Calixto. I got too know you, and my sisters.” Calixto tells her, “you also have a brother you skipped Ruben.” Juana Valentina sadly tells him, “yes my brother. Well in any case, I have gotten too know you. Well everyone, I have been very well served. Well then, now I will be able to leave. I promise I will be in contact with you. I will call you, I will write every now and again. I just don’t want to continue living here.” Calixto tells her, “oh yes I fully understand. You had difficult days, in the moments of our crisis. You moved like nobody, now that things have fixed itself. You are leaving, I would have wished things had been differently.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well things aren’t different. But I am happy, that my sisters with Dona Dona. Well their relationship is better, it has changed. It has made me quite happy.” Calixto asks, “so you discussing what Dona has been talking with your sisters. Plus their boyfriends.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes for that and what I’m seeing. I am going to tell you, but do promise me. Don’t you dare tell this too Dona Dona. She just doesn’t know, that me and my sisters knows you heard me.” Calixto tells her, “you have my word as a father.”

That night, Dona Dona is getting ready for bed. “Now dear there are some women, that like too well have money hidden around here. They open bank accounts, well independently from their husbands. Well away from their families.” Dona Dona ask, “and where is that stupid question coming from Mr. Salguero?” Calixto tells her, “well reading what’s in this paper. It just came too me, do you have a hidden bank account.” Dona Dona tells him, “that is my business but to calm you down. I don’t have a hidden bank account. If only I did have one.” Calixto asks, “so tell me you haven’t received any inheritance someplace? That you haven’t told me about.” Dona Dona tells him, “nothing about that. Now then what is this, well interrogation. Are you planning, on getting some credit cards or something? Or getting another big loan Mr, Salguero?” Calixto tells her, “well no I’m just thinking a lot regarding our money. Well as you say, I get stupid thoughts.” Dona Dona utters, “well goodnight Mr. Salguero.” Calixto utters, “yes goodnight Dona.” He then smiles and glances at the curtains.

The next morning, Ruben ask. “My mother, well she was the one that did the miracles?” Calixto tells him, “image this but Juana Valentina saw her after the soccer game. She was putting the money, in the small box of Juana Calidad.” Ruben utters, “my mother helping out the juanas. Hey father, who understands this?” Calixto tells him, “nobody but what I don’t understand is where is she getting this money.” Ruben tells him, “my mother has been driving them crazy. Ever since they arrived here in corozal, now she’s helping them hiddenly. Well why?” Calixto tells him, “well your mother is as strange as a hand crafted horse. Don’t you commit nothing. If she wants to keep the secret. Of her being a benefactor, we’re not going to say anything else. We don’t know nothing. Now then Juana Valentina, is leaving corozal.” Ruben asks, “so you had the guts to tell her. That she had to leave town.” Calixto tells him, “no no she had already came up with that decision. Yes she left me, without having to take that bitter drink. Its a relief, but I have my heart broken. I really do love your sisters. But more so, is Juana Valentina.” Ruben tells him, “listen father I understand more than you can image.” Calixto tells him, “I just wish there was a man. Who enlightened her, who filled her up with joy. That she wanted to marry him, so she wouldn’t have to leave corozal. Well you know what Ruben, I would sell my soul to the devil. If that were to happen. Well then I’m heading over, to talk to Juana Matilde’s music teacher. Oh plus we have to check out Maria Delia’s carousel.” Ruben utters, “alright.” Calixto gets stuck, he freaks out. “Ruben Ruben my feet are like stuck. As if they are stuck in mud.” Ruben lifts it, “father what’s the problem?” Calixto utters, “what is this thing? I swear to you, well lets leave things like this. Ok bye.” He then carefully goes out the door.

Juana Valentina is crying in bed. “I told Terezalsura on that fateful day. I want to know, what is his full name. What color is his skin? What does he smell like? How tall is he, how much does he weigh? How does he dress? Is he a liberal, or a conservative. Does he suffer from known illnesses? Does he look like a doctor, a rooster, or a snake? Does he like to drink rum? Or sweet juices, or does he drink beer. Does he like beef, or pork meat? Does he go too church? Or does he pray to the demons? Does he says, his sins. Or does he lie all the time? Does he like soccer or baseball? Does he walk like he has courage. Or does he walk sideways as a lizard? That is what I told Terezalsura. I came here looking for my father. Just in case, if I cut my arm while working. I would know who’s blood ran through my veins. Oh what an idiot I was, why did I come looking for a man named Calixto. I found Ruben, my legs began to tremble. All my laughter, and eyes. Well my heart and body began to move. Even the music, the music of an accordion sounded to me like. A great singer, Juana Bautista. I came here looking for a man named Calixto. I also met my brother, Ruben. I can’t forgive him, I just can’t. I can’t forgive this love, I can’t forgive me. I am dying, I want to die. I am dying, Juana Bautista. Yes be very happy Ruben, that is what I told him. I am dying. I am indeed dying.” Juana Bautista sadly stares at her.

Calixto is with Juana Matilde, over at her music teacher. Juana Matilde excitedly asks, “is that for me?” Calixto tells her, “no its not for me.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh father. She gives him a big hug, how did you know that I wanted a guitar. Thank you father, oh professor you don’t know what occurred with my last guitar. I had to pawn it, why don’t we celebrate. I’ll sing us a song.” Her teacher tells her, “no we will begin once more from the beginning.” Sadly she puts the guitar down, and begins singing her notes. He changes the tune, and she utters. Hey that’s the way too go. But you have to put more norteno beat.” Then they jam, while Calixto takes off.

Over at the art studio, Juana Bautista is playing around with her telescope. Calixto asks, “is this what you wanted?” Juana Bautista tells him. “oh yes its perfect I just love it.” Calixto tells her, “well you can come here nights. Well too look at the stars. The astros, hey even an avaneco.” Juana Bautista tells him, “great for sometimes its hot in here.” Calixto tells her, “if you need anything else just advise me.” Juana Bautista tells him, “no father you have thought of everything. I am almost happy.” Calixto asks, “only half?” Juana Bautista tells him, “well something around here is missing. Well so I can be completely happy. While you, nor I can’t do nothing. Well with what you have given me, plus my matrimony with Orlando. I feel as if, I’m in a fairy tale world.” Calixto tells her, “well I am very happy that you two have decided on marrying.” Orlando tells him, “well when I saw Juana Bautisa for the first time. I realized she was the woman of my life. As she would say, that its written in our lives.” Calixto tells him, “I know that your an honest hardworking man. I know that you will make her very happy.” Orlando tells him, “Don Calixto I will work hard at this. Don’t you doubt it.” Calixto tells them, “this year the lord gave me five daughters. Well I just hope, that soon I will have nephews.” The two laugh, and she goes next too him. “You will have nephews, but the palm in your hands. Well it doesn’t say how many, but you will have them.” Orlando tells him, “well then sorry to interrupt but I have classes to do.” Calixto asks, “classes? But we are celebrating the harvest. The mayor announced, this is a national holiday.”

The crowd gathers for the harvest festival. Ruben tells the gang, “oh after all the anxiousness. Corozal really deserves this festival.” Miguel tells him, “oh yes of course.” Floats and bands go by. Mauricio tells them, “hey my father was also going to be making his speeches. But he decided against it.” Juana Manny tells him, “yes were lucky but in the end the mayor’s was quite long.” Manuel Elf tells him, “hey Rubencho cousin lets go dancing or have a great party.” Ruben tells him, “hey Maria Delia is coming up.” Manuel Efe tells them, “well if this festival was done in Europe. It would be an inside event, and with air conditioners. Oh man its does rain a bit here.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh man stop it that’s enough. With your talking always about Europe. We are in corozal, but yes it will rain.” Manuel Efe tells them, “still its going to rain.” Juana Matilde utters, “yes its going to rain.” Ruben tells Juana Calidad, “now then I have to tell you two. My mother said yes, and she will wait for you two on Saturday.” Juana Calidad tells Mauricio, “oh may god illuminate me. For I am very nervous, I don’t know how one is suppose to act in these situations.” Mauricio tells her, “don’t you worry about nothing. The one that is suppose to worry is me my love. For I’m the one, that’s going to ask for your hand.” Juana Bautisa and Orlando show up. Todoelmundo is there as well. “Hi everyone, how is everything? Did we miss Maria Delia?” They all utter, “no not yet.” Calixto greets everyone.

When Maria Delia does come out, she’s on a float that looks like an airplane. Manuel Efe utters, “mama mia. Then he runs towards her, he yells to the crowd. Maria Delia… stop bothering her. Hey move it, out of the way.” Juana Matilde ask, “what is she wearing?” Juana Bautista tells them, “girl she’s a pilot. You know that planes fascinate her.” Juana Matilde tells her, “but no she should have dressed differently. This festival is about the harvest? Well I’m just saying.” In the end Manuel Efe gets on board the float. Ruben tells Calixto, “hey there she comes. She waves at them, Ruben tries to make Juana Valentina jealous. He yells out, hey there bravo bravo just look at how happy she is. Hey very good Maria Delia.” Juana Valentina is also there, and simply claps.

Later the parade is over, the gang go over to get some ice cream. Juana Matilde ask, “well I want a grape flavored one.” Miguel utters, “yes make that two. Hey let Mauricio Fuentelafria pay.” Tere yells out, “hey Juana Valentina I’m heading over to the dolorosa. We are going over there to celebrate.” Poncho tells them, “hey if you want beers that is where I will be waiting for.” The guys utters, “later.” In the end Mauricio does pay, he tells them. “Hey guys don’t worry about it. Now then let me tell you a tale. Now the second year, of the harvest festival All you juanas, will participate. With say a song or dance. Well without a doubt, and all of your special abilities. The star will be Juana Calidad.” Octavio tells him, “hey politician your nothing but bla bla bla. Hey you talk, just to make your girlfriend happy. Hey the one’s that really pulled of something definite. Has been Ruben and I, we have already asked for the hand. Of our future wives, while you nothing.”

Orlando tells them, “well I have already asked for Juana Bautista’s hand.” Mauricio tells him, “your going to be the last. For just a minute, a couple of seconds ago. Ruben has just told me, the meeting is set for Saturday. For Juana Calidad’s hand in marriage, with Don Calixto and Dona Dona.” Juana Valentina tells them, “hey the first part is asking for the hand but. The second part is more important. Its getting married and the faster the better. The rest is just bla bla bla.” Manuel Efe has returned, “excuse me guys did you see me I was on that float with Maria Delia. Daaa we were magnificent superb.” Juana Valentina’s attention, is towards the guys. With the man in the white hat. Juana Valentina asks, “and where did this delicious divine guy come from? Are you seeing him?” Manuel Efe thinks she’s talking about him. He grins and glances at her. “Yes as I was saying, I was on the float with Maria Delia.” Juana Valentina tells him, “Manuel Efe not you. The man wearing the white hat.” Ruben angrily stares at her and the guy. Manuel Efe tells her, “well I’m also wearing a hat?” Juana Valentina repeats, “not you.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.”

Ruben very jealousy glances at the guy, and watches Juana Valentina’s reaction. Juana Bautista and the girls all take notice. One by one that guys are on alert. Octavio grabs Juana Manny, “now come with me firecracker. If you go over there, I am going to give you a knock out.” Miguel is next, “listen Juana Matilde you can say all you want. About me taking away your wings, but you not going over there. Your never going to see me ever again. Now come over here.” Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “now you I am so very sure. If sor juana inez de la cruz was right here. In this same situation, she would stay next to her future husband. So come over here, next is Orlando. “Listen its been proven fact, that people from the exterior of town. They are quite intellectual, Juana Bautista look at me. If you even think of getting close to those guys. I will turn once again into the wolf man. I’ll take you away from here.” Ruben simply watches as Juana Valentina, smiles at the man. Not being able to do a thing. As Juana Valentina, begins walking. “Hi how are you?” Juana Bautista stops her, “don’t girl Juana Valentina. Listen I would love it if you did go to him. I’m happy that your noticing other men but. Girl he’s not the right one girl.” Juana Valentina utters, “alright see you later.” She walks by Ruben, Manuel Efe utters. “What do you mean, your going to talk later? Then he turns and takes a closer look at the man. He simply utters, Daaa.”

Over at the dolorosa, Manuel Efe tells them. “Man the problem wasn’t just this heat. But also the humitity, that is the one that kills one. I don’t know how, we have been able to live in this place. Well for so very long, well all of you. But I will I know Europe quite well. I have lived in other lands, I have lived in other stations. Knowing autumn, winter and spring time.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen if this place bothers you so very much. Then stop moving that tongue, for it tires you even more.” The group simply laugh, Octavio utters. “Hey that’s a great joke.” Mauricio tells him, “oh yeah he’s starting up with his commentary. Now then Todoelmundo, how about you give us a story. About a couple, that has been so lovey dovey.” Tere tells them, “son Todoelmundo is on vacation.” Mauricio asks, “what do you mean is he ill?” Tere tells them, “well not really a vacation. At this point, he’s not going to answer any questions. Well especially knowing, everything he doesn’t know.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yeah leave him alone.” Miguel asks, “now then Todoelmundo how are you doing anyway?” Juana Matilde asks, “come on were serious.” Todoelmundo tells her, “that I don’t know. I have tried not to think of nothing. Absolutely nothing.” Manuel Efe asks, “what you have a problem with your memory or what?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes maybe its for the best. You know something give it too me here.” The man in the white hat goes by the door. Juana Manny gets a strange vibe, she exclaims. “Everyone I want to be a nun. Yes I want to be a nun.” The gang laugh, Poncho tells him. “Hey that’s a great joke boxer.” Octavio smiling tells her, “well then finish the joke firecracker.”

Juana Calidad tells her, “with those things one doesn’t play around Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh hey but I’m not joking around. I am telling you seriously.” Juana Calidad tells her, “well I am also talking seriously.” Octavio tells her, “oh firecracker we are going to get married.” Juana Manny tells him, “no nuns don’t get married. I want to be a nun.”Juana Valentina tells her, “Juana Manny now leave that joke. For Juana Calidad is starting too get bothered by it. Mauricio simply places a kiss on Juana Calidad’s head. Hey really do respect.” Juana Manny tells her, “but I’m not joking around Juana Valentina. I want to be a nun.” Juana Matilde tells her, “girl you got something in your head. Maybe a bolt got loose in that brain of yours.” Juana Manny exclaims once more, “I want to be a nun.” Juana Valentina tells Poncho, “Poncho give me some alcohol or something. Maybe this girl, got heat stroke or something.” Juana Manny freaks out, “no I want to be a nun. What is wrong with everyone?” Poncho asks, “hey someone take her temperature. That is why she saying stupid things.” Juana Bautista notices the man in the white hat. Tere goes over, “Juana Manny are you feeling alright?” Once he leaves she glances at Juana Manny.

Over at the salguero house, they are having their lunch. “I didn’t have a chance to say nothing to Juana Valentina. She has decided that she will be leaving corozal. Once her sisters get married.” Dona Dona tells him, “well maybe she didn’t find anybody. Who would love and marry her.” Calixto tells her, “listen this is the feelings of Juana Valentina. They are simply private, something that she is allowed to keep for herself. Hey come over here Dona. How many years, has the pink house been in your family?” Dona Dona tells him, “you mean was until it got into the hands of your illegitimate daughters Mr. Salguero.” Calixto tells her, “Dona lets not start that again. Well just answer my question.” Dona Dona tells him, “well I don’t know. I know that I inherited it, my mother also inherited from my grandfather. Well that is many years ago why.” Calixto tells her, “well in all this time. One hasn’t even mentioned ever seeing a ghost. Or something to that effect. Its just weird that’s all.” Dona Dona asks, “what has something very strange occured. Like you say?” Calixto tells her, “well lately a lot of strange things have been going on. Items being moved, or things showing up when there was something.”

Dona Dona tells him, “listen I don’t understand nothing. For this sounds too me, like its witchcraft. If its like this, it doesn’t surprise me.” Calixto tells her, “hey enough with all your inappropriate insults. Now I want to tell you, that my daughters have nothing to do with this issues. I hope that one day they did have the property. Well too make money.” Dona Dona tells him, “I repeat I don’t understand nothing. Plus I don’t care, or not interested. What occurs to your daughters.” Calixto tells her, “they have a book which they take great detail. To make sure its up to date. Now for some strange reason, their money is mulitiplying.” Dona Dona tells him, “what’s occuring lately just doesn’t really surprise me.” Calixto tells her, “well the thing is it just show up. Its quite unexplainable, if it was someone they would be stealing the money. Rather than adding to it, don’t you think? I just don’t know, who would be interested in giving. My daughter money, anonymously.” Dona Dona quickly changes the subject. She tells him, “you know Mr. Salguero this job. Is the most thankless of jobs. In our entire world, if one doesn’t clean you notice it right away. But if one does it, nobody notices how wonderful everything looks.”

Manuel Efe shows up, “everyone Manuel Efe has arrived. Accompanied by Maria Delia, and his cousin Rubencho. Hello aunt.” Dona Dona kisses his cheek, “well hello nephew how are you. Hello Maria Delia.” Manuel Efe asks, “Don Calixo so how is it going?” Maria Delia tells them, “hey Don Calixto Dona Dona how are you both?” Ruben utters, “hello mother father.” Maria Delia tells them, “oh I’m so very tired. There’s the party tonight, plus the one tomorrow. The one tonight, its at the club.” Calixto tells her, “everything started so very well today. Oh your float was very nice, it was a complete success. Dear you should have seen her.” Maria Delia tells him, “thank you Don Calixto.” Manuel Efe tells her, “aunt you should have seen the float. It was simply beautiful.” Maria Delia tells her, “it was in the form of a plane. You know very well, how much I just love airplanes. Isn’t that right Dona Dona? Oh my Rubensito, one day your going to learn how to fly a plane right?” Ruben tells her, “Maria Delia don’t start that again.” Manuel Efe tells him, “when ever you want I’ll teach you.” Maria Delia gets all excited, “so you Manuel Efe know how to fly planes?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes I can also fly big ones. Well what interest me now, is flying those small planes. All I have is the one plane.” Maria Delia is quite impressed. “You have your own plane?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes how about one day we can fly by the coast of colombia. That is how people, should really see the coast of colombia.” Maria Delia so excited asks, “oh Rubensito please please can we go. Oh can you image it, flying around the coastal areas. We will be in the plane of Manuel Efe. Please say yes?”

Ruben angrily tells her, “no you know I don’t like planes. Or any machine, that has wings. I think one should just take, necessary things thats all.” Maria Delia tells him, “listen Rubensito you have to give your future wife. Some sorts of treats, please my life do take lessons.” Ruben tells her, “listen that’s enough Maria Delia. I’ll take a shower, later we can head to the club.” Calixto tells them, “I’m going to take a nap then get dressed. Now Dona, are you coming with us too the party?” Dona Dona tells him, “one party a year is enough. I already went too one, that’s enough for me.” Calixto tells them, “well then excuse me then.” Maria Delia ask, “excuse me Dona Dona. But by chance, you have something cool and refreshing to drink in the kitchen. I am so very thirsty, I am about to die.” Dona Dona tells her, “oh my dear just go into the kitchen and get something.” Maria Delia tells her, “yes thank you. Oh isn’t the servant here? Did she go out?” Dona Dona tells her, “yes she’s out now then dear Maria Delia. How about you take these over there as well?” Maria Delia glances at the cups, then utters. “Yes Dona.” Dona Dona utters, “thank you dear.”

Once she’s gone, Manuel Efe closes the doors. He tells her, “aunt I know the great love of Ruben’s life. Its Juana Valentina.” Dona Dona asks, “and what make you come to that conclusion.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well today Juana Valentina at the parade. Well she looked at another man, with such intensity. Ruben was dying out of jealousy, but it wasn’t jealousy of a brother. It was jealous looks like a man. Well a man that was in love.” Dona Dona asks, “so she looked at another man with great interest?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes and you already asked me before. To investigate, who was my cousin in love with. To tell you, only if I was for certain. Well that is where I am now. Aunt when the juanas, were living in this house. I found Ruben and Juana Valentina alone in his bedroom. Now you tell me, when has Ruben ever locked that door. Well never, not in this history but it was on that day.” Dona Dona is furious, “wait you waited till now to tell me that. You cretin.” Manuel Efe utters, “me a cretin.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes and your useless. How could you tell me now. Well you know what, if I had a broom to hit you with. Well I don’t have one on hand.” She takes off, Manuel Efe utters. “Daaa.”

Maria Delia returns, “oh Manuel Efe please talk about your airplane. I am simply so facinated by this. I just love this topic.” Dona Dona heads straight to see Ruben. He’s just gotten out of the bathroom. “I want you to swear too me.” Ruben asks, “but what is going on. Alright yes I swear too you, I am going to get married. On the date that is set alright.” Dona Dona asks, “with Maria Delia Espina?” Ruben tells her, “yes I am going to marry Maria Delia Espina who else? Why are you so twichy?” Dona Dona tells him, “that there is another woman in your life. Another woman, that you have kept as a secret.” Ruben asks, “not again with the story of Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Dona Dona tells him, “not her but another.” Ruben repeats, “the woman the mother of my future children. Will be Maria Delia Espina.” Dona Dona tells him, “you wouldn’t lie to your mother Ruben Salguero.” Ruben tells her, “yes one doesn’t lie to one’s own mother. Your future daughter in law will be Maria Delia.”

Later that night at the dolorosa, Octavio becomes very upset. “Well she was so very happy, that I had asked for her hand in marriage. In fact, she was even talking about her wedding dress. Well all of that man.” Miguel tells him, “well if Juana Matilde begins with that topic. I’ll put myself in a monastery once and for all.” Octavio tells them, “with this all I want to do is just get myself drunk.” Poncho tells him, “listen although that I love that your drinking here at the dolorosa. Well more money will come in, but I simply can’t permit that. Listen just hope that her passion. For her to become a nun fades.” Octavio asks, “and what if it doesn’t? Yes Poncho, and if this doesn’t fade. She goes out there, and goes into a monestry. Well then what am I going too do?”

Over at the pink house, Juana Manny tells the girls. “Listen I don’t know, what’s wrong with me. Well inside I have this strong impulse to enter a convent.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh no don’t you even think it. You might drive those nuns crazy.” Juana Matilde asks, “are you sure your feeling this way Juana Manny? Umda you all know, that everything simply slides off me. But with this, its starting to worry me.” Juana Bautista tells her, “evil is around us. I’ve been feeling it for some time.” Juana Calidad tells her, “please Juana Bautista don’t say such things. Shut your mouth, now then Juana Valentina what are you opinions on this?” Juana Valentina has stops talking, and just stands perfectly still. Juana Bautista goes close to her, she asks. “Juana Valentina Juana Valentina. We are talking too you.”

At the hotel bar, the man in the white hat is having his drink. Manuel Efe approches him and tells him, “listen now then I remember the day that you arrived. You mentioned that I had called you, but the thing is I don’t remember doing such a thing. In fact I don’t even know, what your name is. Well if you have come to help me, well its no problem. I will accept any type of help. I have no problems with anything. Now tell me, what is your name and where do you come from? The man in the white simply stares at him. Daaa tell me, did Yolanda Del Cabrales send you. Well then, well I will explain my situation sir. Well what ever your name is.” The man in the white hat simply stares at him.

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina has fainted. Juana Calidad tells them, “I’m going to take her pulse.” Tere utters, “oh dear lord.” Juana Matilde asks, “it was strange you almost passed out but didn’t. What did you feel? What happened?” Juana Valentina tells them, “well it was the strangest thing. I just began thinking… of nothing.” Tere tells her, “my guess is it was high levels of tension. Now its gone, which is important.” Juana Manny utters, “oh god bless the souls of the purgatory.” Juana Matilde tells her, “do me a favor Juana Manny. Forget that talk, about going to the convent right now.” Juana Calidad tells her, “you can’t do this too Octavio. Being a nun is a part of a vocation. It doesn’t show up just like that.” Juana Bautista tells them, “what occurs like this in one instance has to have a reason.” Juana Matilde utters, “yes that’s right.” Juana Manny tells them, “I am convinced I want to be a nun. Just like Juana Matilde, wants to be a singer.” Juana Matilde tells her, “its one thing being another. See like this, with you is Juana Matilde.” Then accidently Juana Bautista makes a hole in her shirt. Juana Bautista tells her, “but it was an accident. You moved suddenly I’m sorry.” Juana Matilde begins crying, “oh Juana Bautista how could you? I am utterly shocked, you see this is the last memory. That was my mothers. Oh Juana Bautista, how could you have done this.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen here we will fix this.” Juana Matilde asks, “how?” Juana Calidad tells her, “you go and put something else on I’ll figure how to fix this.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh man but thanks nun.” Juana Manny tells them, “now the nun is me.”

Manuel Efe is at the bar, the man in the white hat simply drinks his water. “You haven’t told me, how you are going to help me. I don’t even know your name. Daaa people who are this quiet, usually makes me feel untrustworthy. Well then what ever, anybody that can help me get my vengence with the juanas. I will alley myself with the devil.” The man in the white hat gets up and leaves the bar. Then the earth shakes. Daaa, there was a bit of a tremble.”

Back at the pink house, Juana Calidad returns. “Now then the rip was pretty bad, I did what I could.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh nun is so divine how beautiful thank you.” Juana Calidad tells them, “I’ve always enjoyed making things out of needle and thread. Ever since I was a child.” Tere tells them, “remember yes she’s the one that designed the clothes for the concert for Juana Matilde.” Juana Valentina tells them, “yes everyone loved that the costumes. For they were very bright and colorful. Everyone mentioned that, and remember I had nothing to do with that. Let me make that perfectly clear.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen throughout the concert you meddle in girl. Hey I’m just teasing you girl.” Juana Valentina utters, “oh girl.” Then Juana Calidad utters, “oh thank you sor Juana Ines De la cruz. Thank you for illuminating me, I know what I want now. Dear lord, now I know what I’m going to do in this life. A store where I can design and sell my clothes.” Tere tells her, “oh that’s a great idea.” Everyone agrees, “yes that’s a great idea.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I will support you out.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes destiny will help you out.” Juana Manny asks, “hey you support Juana Calidad and why not me?” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen enough your getting as bad as Maria Delia. When she begins talking about her marriage plans with Ruben.” Juana Calidad asks, “how about this confections of Sor Juana Inez de la cruz. Do you like it?” Tere tells her, “no my love that’s awful.” Juana Valentina tells her, “Terezalsura come on girl with all due respect. I think that name is unsuitable, and not very commercial like.”

Juana Matilde tells them, “hey my modest opinion is. Its favorable for my sister Calidad and her small business. That she wants to make, that name isn’t favorable. Oh man is it me, that has said those words.” Tere asks, “Juana Matilde are you talking seriously?” Juana Matilde tells her, “I don’t know I ignore it. The words are coming out, without me realizing this. I just can’t control this, my person is outside of me. I talk but, its like another person is talking for me. I think I’m going through a big problem, that’s ilogical.” Juana Calidad yells out, “oh god in heaven please protect us. Juana Matilde.” Juana Valentina ask, “what is going on here?” Juana Calidad asks, “have the demons gotten control of you? Oh dear lord, I’ve heard many cases like this. The bible talks about them, the person isn’t talking but the demons that are inside. Dear lord protect us.” Juana Matilde tells her, “Juana Caliad you are a rafaga. Your thoughts cool me.” Juana Valentina begins shaking her, “Juana Matilde your talking like Judge Geremias Guerra stop it. Move her so she can react.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh sor juana inez de la cruz have pity on her.” Juana Matilde gets back to normal, “hey enough all ready. Enough with all this crazy, and stupid remarks it shocks me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well you were freaking us out.” Juana Matilde tells her, “I don’t know why but I’m shocked as well. I did talk differently, but now I’m cured. I don’t know, I’m just saying.” Juana Bautista tells her, “if this isn’t desire by Juana Matilde well this is really strange. Especially what we have just witnessed. I have no response to this question. What the devil is happening?” Juana Valentina tells them, “oh dear lord.”

The next morning Poncho leaves his house. “Oh mom I’m late, I really have too go. My dad is probably looking for me bye mom. Then he bumps into the man in the white hat. Sorry sir, its just I was in a bit of a hurry. No intention on hurting you, my father is probably looking for me. Well you know. The man in the white hat, then takes off. Man that man is cold frozen in fact. With this heat?”

Over at the salguero house, Todoelmundo has been put in the sewing room. Dona Dona asks, “now then Todoelmundo what’s going on with you?” Todoelmundo tells her, “well you told me if I knew anything about the italian fellows. Well I was suppose, to report back too you immedidately.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh yes yes and what’s going on with them?” Todoelmundo tells her, “on Don Franco the one that only speaks italian.” Dona Dona asks, “called but too where?” Todoelmundo tells her, “over at the hotel they had to contact Manuel Efe so he could translate. But they couldn’t find him.” Dona Dona utters, “thank god.” Todoelmundo asks, “what say you Dona Dona?” Dona Dona tells him, “oh its nothing well continue then what happened? What did you end up doing?” Todoelmundo tells him, “well we had too find a tourist that spoke italian. We found one, that wasn’t born in italy but understood the language. The man talked too Don Franco. There was a translation, the italian man was looking for Don Geovani.” Dona Dona ask, “for Geovani.” Dona Dona ask, “but why did he call there at the hotel looking for him?”

Todoelmundo tells her, “well apparently Don Geovani was heading back to corozal from Panama. He told them, he had to do something quite important here in corozal. So he could return relaxed to his country. They were almost done the movie. Don Geovani asks permission to the director. So he could be absent for a couple of days.” Dona Dona asks, “your saying a couple of days. But he hasn’t arrived right?” Todoelmundo tells her, “no he hasn’t arrived. Don Franco told them, that Don Geovani will be staying in the same hotel as before. When he arrived, he was suppose to call him as soon as possible. Don Franco is quite worried, because Don Geovani left by car to corozal. Apparently he had to cross a very savage terrain.” Dona Dona asks, “wasn’t Geovani more specific? He didn’t explain further to that Franco fellow. As to why he was returning here.” Todoelmundo tells her, “no not even Don Franco said anything.” Dona Dona tells him, “if you see Don Geovani inform me right away immediately in fact Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes Dona Dona. Hey Dona Dona, I know its not my interest but. This curiosity is winning, what is going on with those italian guys? Why all this interest in them?” Dona Dona tells him, “you just said it todoelmundo. That isn’t your business, now remember not a word to anybody.” Todoelmundo tells her, “as you wish seno excuse me.” He leaves and Dona Dona utters, “hey now what am I suppose too do?”

(Where is Geovani, did Dona Dona’s wish for him to disappear came true?)

Todoelmundo sees Ruben, “hey Ruben hows it going? Its good that I’m seeing you.” Ruben tells him, “hey Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells him, “now then tell your future wife that I have delivered all the invitations.” Ruben tells him, “sure I will tell her. So how many were they?” Todoelmundo tells him, “well there was the one’s I delivered in corozal. Plus the one’s I put in the mail. I would say 200.” Ruben tells him, “200 Maria Delia it seems is not organizing a wedding but organizing a march instead. My cousin is the one helping out. He’s the godfather, and who knows what they are going to invent.” Todoelmundo tells him, “umda when your cousin is involved everything gets pretty complicated. Oh do you know everything, that’s going on with Yolada Del Cabrales.” Ruben tells him, “don’t even talk about that woman.” Todoelmundo tells him, “I talked to the juanas, and apparently she’s gone completely crazy.” Ruben asks, “and what is going on?” Todoelmundo tells him, “her milk company went bankrupt. She has the hiccups that won’t go away. Her nails continue to grow, and she has become bald. She can’t pronouce the h instead says m.” Ruben laughs and tells him, “hey todoelmundo you don’t know what your saying. Explain it further.” Todoelmundo tells him, “its the truth. Juana Bautista said, that the senora has seven years of bad luck. Because she had broken a mirror.”

Ruben tells him, ” todoelmundo your a serious guy. Intellectual, you believe those supersitions?” Todoelmundo tells him, “listen if you have another explination of what’s occuring with Yolanda Del Cabrales. I will stop believing it. Now that were discussing that woman, how close of friends were your cousin and Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Ruben tells him, “they weren’t friends.” Todoelmundo tells him, “no well that’s strange because. At the hotel, I would see your cousin talking too her on various occasions. Plus when she lived at the pink house, he was seen on numerous occasions coming out of that house.” Ruben ask, “are you sure?” Todoelmundo tells him, “yes really sure now changing the subject. Does your father have volumes in his library. About corozal by chance?” Ruben asks, “why?” Todoelmundo tells him, “the thing is I went to the culture building. They are remodeling everything, its a completely mess everything is in boxes. I need to do an investiagative analysis of corozal. I am really intrigued.” Ruben tells him, “todoelmundo you know what no but my father might not have those types of books. But you know who would Judge Geremias Guerra.” Todoelmundo tells Ruben, “oh yes Judge Geremias Guerra I should have thought about him. I’m going to go over there to visit him thanks Rubencho.” Ruben utters, “Yolanda Del Cabrales and Manuel Efe.”

Juana Matilde is in her room, “yes how is my my favorite kitty. Umda why am I thinking about Manuel Efe?” Juana Calidad is in her bedroom, reading her book once again. “Oh the human life, the hope the happiness of adornation. I dream and I awaken, with the thoughs of Manuel Efe. Manuel Efe? Why was I thinking about Manuel Efe?”

At the hotel Juana Matilde asks the reception. “Seno do you know where Manuel Efe Cuadradro is? Oh in the bar, thank you. Manuel Efe is having a drink, and sucking on his lollypop. Juana Matilde goes over and kisses his cheek. So how’s it going Manuel Efe?” Manuel Efe tells her, “salute I guess.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey I’ll join you senor do you think I have all day sonny. Do me a favor, I’d like two glass of rum. Put it on Mr. Cuadradro’s tab, do you hear me?” Manuel Efe tells him, “salute is a form of saying hello. I guess you didn’t understand that.” Juana Matilde tells him, “well my love that doesn’t matter. Well I really think, the two rums are good on this occasion. To celebrate this encounter, this encounter isn’t like a encounter that’s coincidence. The truth is I was thinking about you, and decided to go looking for you.” Manuel Efe asks, “and why what?” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh its nothing special. Well sometimes one needs good company. Don’t you think?” Manuel Efe tells him, “and you think I’m a great companion?” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh Manuel Efe what are those types of questions sonny. Oh yes one can only see you, how attractive you are. How tall you are? You know about 50 languages. Your very intelligent, very important that one enjoys talking with a person. That’s so very interesting such as yourself.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes I really do need that rum give it here.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey give me mine.”

Juana Calidad arrives, “oh Manuel Efe oh ave purisima.” Manuel Efe utters, “sin pecado concebido. I was looking for you, its delicious that I found you.” Manuel Efe asks, “and what do you need or what?” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh nothing just too see you.” Manuel Efe ask, “why or what?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well nothing special. Maybe you can tell me stories, yes tell me all those european stories that you know.” Manuel Efe asks, “hey come here this isn’t one of your pranks? You two are going to do something too me?” They grab him, “no weren’t not going to do nothing.” Juana Matilde tells him, “calm down.” Juana Manny arrives, “oh hello Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.” Juana Manny asks, “hey I didn’t know I would find you lot here? Oh yes you, for I was looking for you.” Manuel Efe ask, “me? Oh no you guys, are going to put me in a trap. Yes sir, you lot want too trap me.” Juana Manny tells him, “boy what trap nothing. I just want to talk you that’s all.” The others utter, “us too.” Juana Valentina and Juana Bautista show up next. “Well hello Manuel Efe its great, that your here. Manuel Efe I want a big hug from you. I had a great urge to see you.” The man in the white hat comes around. Juana Manny tells them, “he has nice legs.” Juana Matilde asks, “now then what was that song that you were singing the last time. How did it going?” Then they sing, Manuel Efe freaks out when he sees the man in the white hat.

Over at the pink house, the guys have arrived. Octavio asks, “hey is there a convention or something here? That nobody told me about.” Todoelmundo tells him, “hi Octavio.” Mauricio tells him, “we’re waiting for our girlfriends. What don’t tell me, that I have to ask you for permission Octavio.” Octavio asks, “is Juana Manny with them?” Tere tells them, “I don’t know they all left in different directions but separately.” Octavio asks, “do you think they are going to take a long time Tere?” Miguel tells him, “well we have been waiting for over 20 minutes now.” Tere tells them, “hey if you want to wait you are in your house guys excuse me. Now then Todoelmundo, come with me excuse us.” They utter, “thanks Tere.” Octavio asks, “I wonder why they all left and where in so much hurry?” Orlando tells him, “they all probably met on the streets. Well really, they don’t have to sit here and wait for us too show up either.” Octavio tells him, “no but those strangers might still be in town. That does have me worried so.” Mauricio tells him, “hey your right about that Octavio. I wasn’t thinking about that.” Miguel tells him, “me either.”

Tere now is in the kitchen with Todoelmundo. “Once again I’m worried about the juanas Todoelmundo. Can you image Juana Manny, wants to become a nun. Juana Valentina I don’t know well she faints without wanting to faint.” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes I share your worries Terezalsura.” Tere tells him, “yes with everything that has occured to us while we have been in corozal. Well everything just makes me quite uneasy Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells him, “so do you like that?” Todoelmundo tells her, “its great and you know what. If I could see that look, in your eyes all the time. I would be the most luckest man in the world.” Tere utters, “oh Todoelmundo your such a flirt.” Todoelmundo kisses her hands and tells her, “its nice feelings.” Tere blushes and utters, “oh Todoelmundo. Now then, where are the juanas?”

Over at the hotel, the girls have surrounded Manuel Efe. They are all sharing his lollypop. They are all joking around. Juana Valentina tells them, “oh yes I wasn’t thinking that but analysing this. But just think what Manuel Efe did. He didn’t abandon his family, no sir. He stayed here in corozal, passing his difficult days staying at a hotel. Considering how expensive it is. How uncomfortable it is as well. Oh Manuel Efe you are beautiful.” Juana Calidad tells him, “plus staying here is very costly.” Manuel Efe tells them, “its the least I could have done. I had too be close to my family and my people. Just in case they needed me, plus be close to all of you.” Juana Manny tells him, “how beautiful listen Manuel Efe. Have some attention, I’m going to tell you something.” Manuel Efe tells her, “sure go ahead.” Juana Manny tells him, “well at first I thought you were such a meddler and a frog. Well in time I noticed, you were a nice person.” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes it was the least I could do.” Juana Calidad tells him, “you have a soul solider Manuel Efe.” Juana Matilde tells him, “not only a good soul Manuel Efe but also. Oh very entertaining, and very beautiful. The best I’ve ever seen in my life.” Manuel Efe tells them, “for me that’s just natural.” Juana Matilde asks, “do you want another rumsito?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes how about all of you another rum.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I want a pina colada.”

Juana Matilde yells out, “another rum.” Manuel Efe yells out, “how about some drinks over here. A pina colada’s and some rums.” Juana Valentina asks, “now then how about you tell us about another adventure that you had.” Juana Bautista tells him, “you know stories about strange lands. Go around the world, see different faces, speak different languages. See different cultures, and all that traveling in europe.” Juana Valentina tells him, “what experiences.” Juana Bautista tells him, “it must have been quite incredible.” Juana Valentina asks, “hey how about one question. Were you ever in china?” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes I know china but she lives next door to my house.” They burst out laughing, Juana Matilde ask. “Oh come on seriously.” Manuel Efe tells them, “no I’ve never been too china.” Juana Matilde asks, “do you know Madrid or only part of europe or all of it?” Manuel Efe tells her, “all of it europe is marvelous. You know why Corozal is better than europe?” They asks, “why?” Manuel Efe tells them, “because in the states, europe or no where. For corozal has the juanas.” Then they all congratulate him.

The man in the white hat, is standing there by the lobby. Ruben arrives, and goes to the noise. He’s shocked to see them all there. “Hello everyone.” Manuel Efe asks, “hey Ruben don’t tell me you wanted to see me as well?” Ruben tells them, “I wasn’t expecting to see you all here? Yes I do need to talk too you. Maybe its best, that you all are here present.” Juana Valentina ask, “and how are your wedding preparations going?” Ruben tells her, “why don’t you ask the godfather of the bride.” Manuel Efe tells him, “they are going quite well. Well we had to change a few things. You know Maria Delia belives, they brought bad luck. Juana Valentina then rubs the make-up off his cheek. In the end she can’t, and kisses his other side. Then plays around with his hat. Which infuriates Ruben even more so. Well you understand, with the dealth of her father.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen you can just image how beautiful Maria Delia was. When she was in her carriage, and pilot suit. How beautiful?” Then the girls grab him, and begin kissing him. Juana Valentina tells her, “oh yes Maria Delia is the best harvest queen ever. So much deserved, and the best wife that so deserves my brother or no?” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes sir.” Manuel Efe asks, “wait a minute Rubencho care for anything to drink I’ll invite you. Its no problem.” Ruben tells him, “oh no thanks I just came by to ask you a question.” Manuel Efe asks, “sure go right ahead.” Ruben asks, “did you invite Yolanda Del Cabrales to my wedding?” Manuel Efe asks, “hey what happened to our rum and pina colada over here?” Ruben asks, “why are you not responding cousin?” Manuel Efe tells him, “I’m not in charge of the invitations that’s the bride’s jobs. Yolanda Del Cabrales, who is this Yolanda Del Cabrales. Daaa Yolanda Del Cabrales, that woman who is chasing after you.” Nina the receptionist calls him, “Ruben Ruben please Don Calixto called. Something serious has occured with Dona Dona. He wants you to urgently head home.” Ruben asks, “what happened?”

At the salguero house, Dona Dona is fighting with the doctor. “I have nothing, get that thing away from me.” The doctor tells her, “but Dona Dona I must examine you.” Dona Dona tells him, “now then I want you to tell my son and Mr. Salguero. That I have a slight fever, listen you say that. Or the one paying you is social services. I am not a member, so nobody is going to pay you.” Ruben arrives home, “father what happened?” Calixto tells him, “oh man your mother had an attack.” Ruben asks, “an attack of what?” Calixto tells him, “hey wait get back here. She’s with the doctor, she was talking to me quite calmly. When suddenly she asks, where were you. I told her, you had gone to the hotel. Then right then and there, she fainted.” Ruben asks, “she fell like that?” Calixto tells him, “yes she fell straight down like a piano. It was a good thing, Ophelia ended up helping me put her in bed. Then I ran and called the doctor, then advised you.” Ruben tells him, “well there is the doctor right now.”

Dona Dona overhears the men, talking to the doctor. Calixto asks, “what’s wrong with Dona?” She then runs and lies on her bed. Ruben goes to see her, “mother what’s wrong? How are you doing?” Dona Dona tells him, “I’m a bit weak that’s all. So where were you?” Ruben tells her, “I was at the hotel looking for Manuel Efe. My father was the one that called me. The doctor tells us, this isn’t grave but you blood tension dropped.” Dona Dona asks, “so what did you have to talk to Manuel Efe about?” Ruben tells her, “well things regarding him and me. Now don’t worry mother.” Dona Dona asks, “so did you see anybody else?” Ruben tells her, “no nobody else. I couldn’t even talk to Manuel Efe. Mother the doctor told us, you need complete bed rest. He has to put an injection in you.” Dona Dona ask, “an injection?” Ruben tells her, “yes I’ll get the pharmacist to send someone.” Once he’s gone, she yells out. “An injection, that blasted doctor.”

Over at the pink house, Todoelmundo is there with Tere. “Listen Todoelmundo, I don’t understand nothing.” Todoelmundo tells her, “my intentions aren’t that I’m saying goodbye. Well yes, he takes her hands. Its a goodbye to the life, that I have been living. I want to start another one.” Tere asks, “what are you saying to me bye?” Todoelmundo tells her, “no on the contrary look Terezalsura. I have told you, every one of my plans for the future. The big part is you, there’s nothing no feeling without you.” Tere tells him, “Juana Valentina is planning on returning to Barranquilla. I just don’t know, what else could happen.” Todoelmundo tells her, “don’t you understand me if you don’t stay here. In Corozal, my life wouldn’t have any meaning. What I want is, for you to marry me.” Tere tells him, “well I…” Todoelmundo tells her, “listen its no surprise to anybody that I am in love with you.” Tere tells him, “hey the thing is you caught me off guard and completely by surprise. Now I’m a bit nervous boy.” Todoelmundo asks, “listen why should we wait any longer for what? What is your answer? Do you want to marry me? Do you want too marry me?” Tere tells him, “that responds doesn’t come from me. It doesn’t depend on me.”

Outside Orlando asks, “well would you look at that. Are you seeing this?” All the girls are coming out of Manuel Efe’s car.” Mauricio tells him, “disagreeably so Orlando.” Miguel asks, “why is Juana Matilde acting so nice to Manuel Efe?” Octavio asks, “all of the juanas are acting that way.” Orlando asks, “what are they all doing?” Mauricio asks, “hey senoritas hey you lot are all deaf. We have been waiting, for about two hours for you all.” Juana Calidad tells him, “sorry Mauricio but we were talking with Manuel Efe.” Mauricio utters, “oh really?” Manuel Efe tells him, “look Mauricio what is going on is the charm that I have. Then they all fight for the lollipop. Nobody else has it, plus all of your plans bore them. Do understand them.” Miguel tells him, “listen the only thing I understand. Is I don’t like my girlfriends, looking at other guys in the streets. Plus spending time with another guy, now get over here Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh no Miguel do me a favour. Hey don’t be this way?” Miguel tells her, “hey I can’t stand this anymore. No more.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey he’s a bit boring. In the end Miguel has to grab her, to take her away from Manuel Efe. Hey the boring one is another.” Juana Matilde yells out, “hey don’t grab me.” Mauricio grabs Juana Calidad, “hey your coming over here with me as well.” Juana Calidad tells him, “I’m truly sorry Manuel Efe. Oh man what is up with you?”

Orlando is the next one, he grabs Juana Bautista. “Hey get over here, this is disrepsectful. You can’t be doing this.” Then its Octavio, who grabs Juana Manny. Orlando tells Juana Bautista, “I came here to be with you.” Then all you hear is complaining from the guys. Manuel Efe yells out, “now guys that’s enough. Girls don’t fight with your boyfriends. Now then please don’t worry, the only one that’s leaving is me.” All the girls scream out, “no Manuel Efe.” They all go towards him, and Manuel Efe yells out. “Girls girls calm down. Like the song says, I’ll be back. Then he and Juana Matilde sing the song. Listen I’ll be coming right back daaa.” Juana Valentina tells them, “hey I have no commitment with anybody. If you want I will join you. Now come on lets go.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey listen I’m heading to see my aunt. To see how she’s doing, its best I go all by myself.” Juana Valentina tells him, “fine then but you are returning? You did promise me?” Manuel Efe asks, “are you sure I mean do you want me to come back here?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes I do. Now quickly you go, then you can come back quicker.” Manuel Efe tells her, “alright I’m going to say goodbye then.” He kisses her forehead, Juana Valentina utters. “Oh how beautiful.” Manuel Efe tells her, “on both cheeks, on the chin and nose. Then how about a kiss, or a bigger kiss.” As they are kissing, Tere and Todoelmundo come out. Both are extremely shocked.

Ruben is on the phone, “listen I would like to know if you know. Where Mr. Cuadradro, was going or when he will be returning? Your talking with Ruben Salguero. Do you know, if say he went with my sisters some place? With the juanas yes? Oh alright thank you. Ophelia if father asks, tell him I’m heading over to the pink house.” Ophelia simply nods.

Over at the pink house, the guys are still furious. Orlanda is following Juana Bautista, he asks. “Listen here, what was this grand desire to go see Manuel Efe? What is that? There’s no logic?” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes I know that Orlando but the thing is. I just can’t explain it. I was walking to the plaza, then without thinking I headed to the hotel. I wanted to talk to Manuel Efe, to talk to him boy.” Orlando sarcastically tells her, “oh just like that you wanted to see and talk to Manuel Efe. Oh what is the enchantment, and love for that guy?”

Juana Manny comes down with Octavio. “Listen you have always hated Manuel Efe, what’s up now?” Juana Manny tells him, “well now its different he seems like a different guy. He’s a nice guy.” Octavio utters, “nice guy? Now your going to tell me, that you like that european man?” Juana Manny tells him, “hey what are you talking about I am going to marry you.” Octavio asks, “and your desire to be a nun?” Juana Manny tells him, “I don’t want to be a nun anymore. I’m going to tell you something. I am going to be good friends with Manuel Efe sonny.” Octavio tells her, “listen firecracker forgive but let me tell you something. Your case is medical.”

Juana Matilde tells Miguel, “understand me Miguel please.” Miguel tells her, “but the thing is your the one that was included in that prank against Manuel Efe in covenas. Hey that joke wasn’t a soft one, it was pretty bad. Now you love, adore, and see him in high esteem.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen I don’t like love or adore him. Yes I see him in high esteem, he’s a nice guy now so what. Yes now I feel guilty for what I did. That stupid bad prank, poor Manuel Efe he’s a person that’s a great person and that’s final.” Miguel sarcastically repeats, “oh that Manuel Efe he’s a person that’s a great person. That blased european guy, all this time. Stop acting this way.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey he didn’t deserve this I don’t want to talk about this anymore.”

Mauricio tells her, “listen I know you have always had a nice relationship with Manuel Efe but now. What is all this great sympathy for him, your going way too far oh no Juana Calidad.” Juana Calidad tells him, “listen Mauricio why are you acting like this. But I do love you.” Mauricio tells her, “oh yes you do love me but lately your becoming quite chumming with Manuel Efe.”

Tere is with Juana Valentina, “listen Juana Valentina lately all of you have been acting quite strange. All five of you, have this great attraction and enchantment in regards with Manuel Efe. Yes my love, this is quite strange.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes and I’m praying that I continue feeling this way. Its the only thing that has helped me, getting Ruben out of my head.” Tere tells her, “I just don’t know Juana Valentina. Image this Juana Valentina, when you arrived in corozal. You met Manuel Efe, you pushed him away don’t you remember. Then too my surprise I see you making out with him. Not that I’m reproaching you, on the contrary. I guess I’m pretty surprised girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “the only thing clear Terezalsura one can’t fight one little bit. This new attraction to Manuel Efe. Truthfully I don’t know, how this is going too end. For now I am quite relaxed, its like a bucket of cold water. Falling like a huge waterfall, into a empty revine.”

Juana Matilde tells Ruben, “listen I don’t know. He just joined us here, he told us that he had something too do. He mentioned, he would be coming by later tonight. Isn’t that right Juana Bautista? Yes that is what he said.” Ruben tells her, “listen I’m going to stay right here instead of looking for him all over town.” Juana Manny runs in, “hey I have an idea. What do you say we all fix Manuel Efe a great punch. He’s going to love it.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes it will facinate him. But it has to be with rum, here I’m giving you this. Please lets stop fighting. The girls all run into the kitchen. Hey Miguel, I’m giving this too you. I love you I love you, hey wait Juana Manny.” Ruben asks, “Juana Bautista what did Manuel Efe give you all. That you are all so enthusiastic?” Juana Bautisa tells her, “my cards don’t have any explinations but there must be one.”

Judge Geremias Guerra is with Margarita Cruz, and Todoelmundo. “Lately there has been a lot of strange things going on. Well then where are we going to start?” Todoelmundo tells him, “well then lets begin with reference to earthquakes Judge.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “what earthquakes no. I recall in the 57, there was a big earthquake.” Todoelmundo tells him, “its not that look. What if we discuss halley’s commet. It signifies the arrival of the magician. It comes every 75 years. In the visit of 1910 it brought ice. In 1986 it brought the vacination of accession and la vatimento. The next visit is in another 75 years, so 2062 hey some of us won’t be here to see that.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “Todoelmundo you remembered.” Todoelmundo tells her, “oh yes once again I know what everyone knows judge.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “then its best we find out what’s going on before you lose your memory again.” Todoelmuno tells him, “now then let check different years that total 26.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “for example?” Todoelmundo tells her, “how about 1982.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well it says here they were numerous earthquakes. In the month of august.” Todoelmundo asks, “what else happened in august?”

(Problems translating acession and la vatimento. But tons of info about Halley’s comet.)

Judge Geremias Guerra is looking over his book. “At that time, it was reported in august that no cattle gave birth that year.” Todoelmundo tells him, “no calfs were born? How about we try no 1979.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “there were earthquakes not in august but in april.” Todoelmundo asks, “what else happened in april?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well apparently it didn’t rain. Plus it was reported, that there was approximately 145 cases of infedlities that were proven.” Todoelmundo tells him, “I have it there’s only one thing the devil is among us.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “Todoelmundo enough with the stupid remark.”

Over at the pink house, the girls are making punch. Juana Matilde tells him, “alright you can try it out. The important part is that Manuel Efe likes this.” Juana Valentina asks, “hey what’s going on?” Miguel tells him, “hey don’t you think you’ve gone too far with the rum?” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen sonny I only put one bottle. That’s just a little.” Miguel tells him, “I think you need more eggs.” Juana Valentina tastes it, “oh for Manuel Efe yes its delicious.” Miguel tells him, “great he’s going to end up super drunk.” Juana Valentina utters, “a ha.” Ruben utters, “hello.” Juana Valentina asks, “and what’s with the visit?” Ruben tells her, “there was a conversation that was put on hold with my cousin.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well then go look for him.” Ruben tells her, “it seems its easier to find him here than any place else.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen what ever you have to talk too him about. You can talk to him, outside of my house.” Ruben tells her, “this isn’t your house. This place is also my sisters.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen at the hotel you mentioned Yolanda Del Cabrales. If that is the topic of conversation with Manuel Efe. Well that doesn’t matter too me. Hey don’t use my sisters, or of course me. Now then we’re almost done, now how about the music.” Juana Matilde tells them, “I got a new one.” Octavio angrily tells them, “hey what for that annoying european guy is going to show up.” Juana Manny angrily tells him, “then Octavio do me a favor and don’t talk badly about Manuel Efe.”

Manuel Efe is at the hotel, “hey nina the keys. Hey if by any chance Ruben Salguero, shows up asking for me. For him, even if I’m here I am not here. I mean I could be in the pool, or at the bar, or in the restaurant, or in the room. But if Ruben Salguero comes here, asking for me. Exclusively for Ruben Salguero I’m not here. Whether I’m here or not. Do you understand me nina?” Nina tells him, “yes I guess.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa oh these people from the tropics. Don’t understand nothing daaa.” The man in the white hat stares at him, Manuel Efe freaks out and runs off.

Over at the judge’s office, he tells Calixto. “There’s no logical explination even though Todoelmundo has an theory. Well since everything is ilogical one has to become ilogical. That’s why we called you.” Calixto tells him, “well yes but what is the theory?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “todoelmundo believes that the devil is in corozal. Can you believe that?” Calixto yells out, “what? Listen todoelmundo, other than loosing your memory. You’re losing your mind, going crazy?” Todoelmundo tells him, “listen Don Calixto all I know is. What is written in these books, in 1780. In that year corozal was designated a real colony.” Calixto tells him, “well apparently Todoelmundo you got your memory back.” Todoelmundo tells him, “well Don Calixto sometimes yes sometimes no. Its like the devil is upon us.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “no more with that todoelmundo your making me very nervous.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well for me the theory is well proven. That is exactly what were going too do. We must confirm it, no matter how absurd it sounds. Now then where are we starting todoelmundo?” Todoelmundo tells him, “then we should start at 1779 four and seven.”

Calixto asks, “well what does that mean?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well we look in that year. That mean the answer, there has is be fully explained alone.” Calixto tells them, “fine then lets start looking then in 1779.” Todoelmundo asks, “so were they’re any earthquakes that year Don Calixto?” Calixto tells him, “yes there were. Apparently they were earthquakes all in march. They constructing a church. Saint Ursula, was underconstruction. Which by when the earthquake shook it fell to pieces. The priest Anselmo Lugo, exorcised the church, he proclamed it was because of the devil.” Margarita Cruz becomes quite scared, “oh dear lord that’s left is it starts shaking. Then the house starts shaking. Oh dear lord Geremias.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “this has no reason. There’s no logical explination.” Calixto tells them, “everyone calm down.” Todoelmundo tells him, “Don Calixto have you heard about magician metero.” Calixto asks, “the magician that appartenly shows up on the 76 years. In conjuction with the halley’s comet.” Todoelmundo asks, “what since he shows up on the 76. What if its the same, with the arrival of the devil. That he shows up, on odd days that total 26.” Calixto tells him, “listen your resolution in this is completely ilogical.” Judge Geremias Guerra comforts Margarita Cruz.

Over at the pink house, the girls are all waiting for Manuel Efe too show up. The guys meanwhile, find this very unpleasing. Juana Valentina tells them, “now I left the door open so some nice air enters so don’t close it.” Manuel Efe shows up, “Manuel Efe has arrived.” The girls get all excited. Octavio yells out, “here comes the fresh.” Manuel Efe tells them, “I am here. Juana Valentina kisses his lips, oh my beautiful my life how are you doing? Then all the girls kiss him, and hug him. Manuel Efe tells them, now I couldn’t find a good white wine. So I brought a nice german wine that seems to sound good.” Mauricio sarcastically tells them, “see that guys the german wine sounds good too him.” Manuel Efe tells them, “listen the best thing for a meal is cocovan.” Juana Matilde asks, “how does one say that cocovan?” Manuel Efe repeats, “cocovan.” We are going to need a chicken, how about three or four chickens.” Orlando tells him, “listen man Manuel Efe we don’t want any cocovan.” Manuel Efe tells them, “hey don’t worry I’m used to cooking for a lot of people. In europe, or it could have been asia.”

Ruben returns, “well then Ruben has arrived.” Manuel Efe tells him, “daaa well hello cousin. You know the saying, when one eats many can eat. Hey its no problem, Terezalsura come on lets check out that chicken.” Tere utters, “sure son.” Ruben stops him by grabbing him, “no we are going too talk. I need to talk to you cousin.” Juana Valentina tells him, “Ruben release him I already told you not here. Listen you can talk anywhere, at your house, at the hotel. On the street where ever, but here no do me this favor.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey Rubencho how about we have breakfast at the hotel. We can talk calmly, hey about about we talk say 10:30.” Ruben tells him, “listen I’m not going to wait till tomorrow. We are going to talk outside.” The girls start screaming, “no.” Juana Calidad tells him, “no why don’t you talk in the kitchen. No violence, because violence is a sin.” Manuel Efe tells him, “sure yes no violence. Look you go on ahead, while I leave the bottle here.” Ruben grabs the bottle, and puts it on the table. “Fine then lets go now.” Juana Valentina tells them, “I told you here no.” Ruben tells her, “you heard your sister we are going to talk in the kitchen.” Manuel Efe tells him, “sure lets go and talk in the kitchen. Hey here nothing has happened. I’ll go and see, if we have the chicken. Don’t you worry, no violence. Hey I know karate, I can destroy you.” Ruben simply stares at him.

Ruben arrives in the kitchen and closes the door. He angrily asks, “now then how is Yolanda Del Cabrales doing?” Manuel Efe tells him, “daaa let me tell you since that night of passion. With that woman, you can’t stop thinking about her. Your becoming a bit obsessed, and you know something your almost at the point of getting married.” Ruben tells him, “do you want me to put my hands on you?” Manuel Efe tells him, “listen violence is a sin just like Juana Caliad said. Plus on the other hand, let me warn you that when I was in the university. I was the boxing champion jr, plus took every form of karate there is.” Ruben tells him, “listen cousin just tell me the truth did you or didn’t you. Know Yolanda Del Cabrales, more than your telling me?” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey what did I tell you. What did I tell you? What was it?” Ruben tells him, “oh cousin stop lying and being a faker already. You were seen on various occasions, at the hotel talking too one another. Plus you were also, coming around here at this pink house visting her.”

In the diningroom, the guys try to get the girls to leave the house. Mauricio tells them, “now then girls why don’t we all head to the dolorosa?” They all yell out, “no Mauricio no.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey we want to play here.” Juana Calidad tells him, “no we should wait what if Manuel Efe wants to go with us?” Mauricio utters, “girls your losing your mind.” As they continue to fight, Juana Valentina heads to the kitchen.

Back in the kitchen, Ruben tells him. “Stop denying it cousin, so how far did your friendship with her go?” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes Rubencho I did flirt with her. Plus yes once, I did come here to see her, right here in this pink house. Hey she’s so very beautiful, I thought I could have a fling with her. But she didn’t want me, she only had eyes for you. So I told her, hey why don’t you forget him. Stop thinking about him, for the only love of Ruben is Juana Valentina.” Ruben tells him, “what stupid idea is that?” Manuel Efe tells him, “listen its not a stupid idea and you know that full well. Well the fortunate thing is, Juana Valentina doesn’t think about you anymore. Well she has now, her beautiful eyes upon me. Well the way things should be. That has you going crazy, listen Rubencho you two can’t because she’s your sister.” Ruben tells him, “enough already just confess it all Manuel Efe. You and Yolanda set up the trap that I fell in.” Manuel Efe tells him, “the truth is the only one that knows about your love for Juana Valentina. Is Yolanda Del Cabrales, me I’m just a simply tomb Rubencho. But can you image, what aunt Dona would do if she found out. Daaa it would be terrible, but don’t you worry. You can count on my silence, its no problem.” Ruben tells him, “listen you can hold onto that silence. For everything, that you have said isn’t true.”

Manuel Efe tells him, “now Rubencho I have been watching you. Remember that famous day of the festival, daaa you should have seen your face. When you saw Juana Valentina staring at that man. Well what about that day, I arrived and you and Juana Valentina were locked up in your bedroom. Now what were you two doing? Playing chinese games or what? No Rubencho no, you can’t lie too me. In love with your sister, and having to marry Maria Delia. Oh how difficult, what a moment. Yes what a moment, daaa you don’t know how I feel for you Rubencho. Now talking frankly with you, with Yolanda Del Cabrales that woman is fine. I really wanted to, have an affair with her but… She didn’t even give me the time. Well apart from Juana Valentina, I’m sorry but don’t you worry I won’t say nothing. You can count on me, you can count on my silence as always Rubencho.” Ruben grabs him, “shut up Manuel Efe enough.” Manuel Efe asks, “what are you going to hit me? Why just because, I kissed Juana Valentina. Because she responded, to my kiss with love? Is that why your going to hit me?” Ruben releases him, “your lying.” Manuel Efe yells out, “there is no lie no lie. Hey if you want ask, Todoelmundo and Terezalsura they saw me kissing her. We were kissing, Ruben you are my cousin. I really do appreciate you, between you and Juana Valentina it just can’t be. Its better for the both of you. Listen its now over and thats that. You are siblings, daaa. Oh this door, Rubencho are you going to stay for dinner. To each the chicken, I’ll be making it two ways. Al vino, and caparra sauce.”

Back in the living room, Mauricio asks, “hey girl why won’t you let me play.” Ruben furious leaves the house, they girls yell out his name. “Hey Ruben?” Octavio asks, “hey I wonder what happened?” Juana Matilde tells him, “they were probably talking about something very serious. You don’t have to be rude.” Octavio utters, “fine fine.” Juana Manny sees Manuel Efe with his arms around Juana Valentina’s waist. “Hey what happened?” Manuel Efe with a grin, tells them. “Hey don’t worry about it, we will discuss this later.”

Over at the judges house, Calixto tells them. “Hey they stopped being coincidences many years ago. Ever since corozal was released from the regitment. All the years details value 26, it hasn’t stopped the earthquakes. Coincidently there has been, a lot of strange things going on.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “yes in 1979 Father Anselmo Lugo, talked about the presence of the devil. In 1989 another spaniored priest Joaquin Lama said the same thing.” Margarita Cruz asks, “and what happened then in 1989?” Calixto tells him, “well we still had earthquakes. All the children couldn’t talk, and all the men became impotent.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “apparently Joaquin Lama states he also tried exorcism. But it was useless.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “but man in this year there has been no misfortunes. The only thing different, is that Todoelmundo has his memory coming and going nothing else.” Todoelmundo tells her, “listen Margarita Carmichael Fuentelafria who has been trying for years to become governer. Decides to cancel his future plans for his campaigns. Juana Calidad practically, took off all her clothes in front of the guys. Juana Manny tells everyone, she wants to become a nun.” Margarita Cruz yells out, “your talking about my daughter?” Todoelmundo tells them, “all of Juana Bautista’s tarots cards are now blank. Juana Matilde one night, begins talking like a well known professor.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “the flighty Juana Matilde?” Todoelmundo tells them, “that is what Terezalsura told me judge. Plus lately all the juanas, have a huge interest in Manuel Efe Cuadradro. Juana Valentina is having a romance with him.” Calixto utters, “Juana Valentina with Manuel Efe?” Todoelmundo tells him, “listen Don Calixto it might not be misfortunes too you but. With the phenomenun of el nino, which is such a violet storm. So powerful of the entire era, its a sign that there is a a benevolent entity here.” Calixto asks, “wait a minute now then what are we going to do then?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “apparently in the chronicals every time this has occured. Nobody could do absolutley nothing.” Todoelmundo tells them, “well the only consolation is this is repeated in 2079.” Calixto tells him, “hey what an consolation prize Todoelmundo.”

The girls are all together, in Juana Valentina’s bedroom. Juana Matilde tells them, “you know something I just want to say. That today Manuel Efe was really sympatico. Don’t you think?” Juana Bautista tells them, “yes all his tales regarding europe are very interesting.” Juana Matilde tells them, “oh yes really.” Juana Calidad tells them, “I just pray to god that we have misjudged him so very badly.” Tere tells them, “no girl he’s still as annoying as ever girls. I just don’t understand, why you all would change your opions regarding him so very quickly.”Juana Bautista tells her, “well before Tere we were looking at him with other eyes. We didn’t see how generous and gentlemen like he really is.” Juana Manny tells them, “plus he’s really attractive.” Juana Valentina tells them, “yes he was quite divine.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes that is true attractive as sin. He’s attractive, intelligent, admirable, funny. Listen he’s the perfect man. I don’t know, what all of you are thinking. For me today I have spent the best day of my life. Because I was with Manuel Efe.” Juana Calidad tells them, “we have to identify one thing. Considering everything we have done too him. He’s always been firm, and ready to help us out. With everything that we have needed.” They all utter, “yes that’s true.” Juana Manny tells them, “remember the bad prank we pulled on him in covenas.” Everyone utters, “oh yes that was bad.” Juana Valentina utters, “how embarssing.” Juana Manny tells them, “see he forgave us while others they could have gotten their revenge.” They utter, “yes.” Juana Bautista asks, “but its strange this feeling that he has awaken in us. Yes its strange, I still don’t fully understand this. Absolutely nothing.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh no girl I am going to ask you one thing. Don’t explain things, for all four of us I mean five. Don’t understand, what your trying too tell us. I’m just telling you simply, Manuel Efe is a person that makes us feel very comfortable. Manuel Efe likes us five juanas, and that’s that.” They utter, “yes.” Juana Matilde tells them, “now then I’m going to bed so goodnight everyone.” One by one the girls leave, “goodnight.” Tere tells them, “girls goodnight get some rest.” Juana Valentina yells out, “goodnight girls.” Juana Calidad tells her, “ave maria purisima.”

Tere ask, “Juana Valentina I want to ask you something. I’m very happy with your relationship with Manuel Efe but. Well when did you fall in love with him?” Juana Valentina tells her, “now then let me tell you. I have a special attraction to Manuel Efe. A very strange feeling, I hadn’t have felt. I can’t asure you, that its not love.” Tere tells her, “oh my love I surely hope so. The truth is I’m very happy, that you can finally get Ruben out of your head. That your in love with him, so you can take Ruben out of your head girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen I’m never going to fall out of love with Ruben never. Even if I can’t, or even if that relationship can’t be. I know I will never stop loving him. Why should I deny it to myself, at least tonight it will be. The first night, that I’m going to be relaxed. In thinking about him, hopefully he never again enters my head again. Well then, I’m going to bed once and for all. Well goodnight.’ Tere simply utters, “goodnight.”

The next morning, Calixto tells Ruben everything. “Now that the theory of Todoelmundo. But Judge Geremias Guerra, Margarita Cruz and I. Well we have found out a few things, we really do think that’s the truth.” Ruben utters, “the devil oh old man.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “and why not? In this town so many things occur, just like in a soap opera. Listen the magician comet appears every 76 years. That plague that almost destoryed us, the day the light went out, that non-stop rain. The crystal tears of Maria Delia, the indifferent kiss. Well why don’t you see, that maybe the devil could be visiting us every year on that specific date.” Ruben tells him, “but godfather yes here has occured many strange things. But in regards to the devil, hey that’s too much man.” Calixto asks, “where are you going?” Ruben tells him, “I’m heading to sincelejo to talk to Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Calixto tells him, “but your going to marry Maria Delia. Your still after that woman.” Ruben tells him, “father I have never been behind that woman. Listen she’s the only proof, if there really is a devil amongst our mists. Is my cousin Manuel Efe.” Calixto yells out, “Ruben get back in here.” Ruben gets outside, and sees Todoelmundo.

Ruben asks, “Todoelmundo are you really busy? I really need to get to sincelejo right away. Its just going to be a one stop thing. Then we return alright?” Todoelmundo tells him, “sure get in I’ll charge by the hour.” Ruben tells him, “sure.” Todoelmundo asks, “hey did your father tell you what we uncovered in our investigation?” Ruben tells him, “listen I don’t have to time to think about this. Now please lets go.” Todoelmundo tells him, “but its in the chronicals of corozal Ruben.” Ruben tells him, “listen Todoelmundo I don’t care to listen too all your fantasy that you’re thinking up.” Todoelmundo then sees the man in the white hat. He notices he’s walking straight ahead, the people are walking backwards. He freaks, “hey Ruben did you notice something weird going on?” Ruben tells him, “no now lets go already.” Todoelmundo asks, “where are we going again?” Angrily Ruben yells out, “sincelejo sincelejo.” Todoelmundo nervously starts quickly his motor-bike. “Oh dear lord.”

Over at the pink house, changes are afoot. Tere brings clean clothes to Juana Calidad. Her room is a pigsty. “Juana Calidad?” Then she hears singing coming from the bathroom. “Hey Juana Matilde, do you need towels dear?” Juana Calidad yells out, “is not Juana Matilde but Juana Calidad.” She continues singing, Tere simply drops the towels on the floor. Over in Juana Matilde’s room, her room is spotless. Juana Matilde is praying, “blessed is his saintly name.” Tere is speechless. Outside Juana Bautista tells Juana Valentina. “I’ve been trying to analyze what is going on here. I just can’t find an answer, everything is still white. There’s no answer.” Juana Valentina ask, “what questions were you asking?” Juana Bautista tells her, “anything girl. I needed to understand, well why all of us have this sudden interest in Manuel Efe. Don’t you think so? I still love Orlando but, well inside I just fell a whole bunch of feelings that I just don’t understand.” Juana Valentina tells her, “exactly that is exactly what’s going on with me. In fact the same, well in my case a relief. My high esteem for Manuel Efe, has soften the pain of my love for Ruben. Well that is good then.” Juana Bautista ask, “I hope it doesn’t disappear.” Juana Valentina tells him, “no it never will but I’m going to tell you something. I’m really thinking, about this seriously, I’m telling you this. I’m considering having a serious engangement with Manuel Efe. Officially we are dating.” Juana Bautista ask, “but girl are you serious?” Juana Valentina tells her, “well the thing is I am quite bored of all of this. Its just unjust, I am still quite young. I am pretty tired, having this long face. Doing nothing for this sadness.” Juana Manny comes out very professional like. “Bye girls.” They look at her, and utter. “What bye.” Miguel show up, “hi Miguel your looking quite handsome today. I’ve never really looked at you. Listen if you stop being interested in my sister. Well don’t forget about me, well bye.” She kisses him, and takes off. Juana Valentina asks, “was that Juana Manny?” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes that was Juana Manny girl.” The man with the white hat, takes his hat off. Juana Manny utters, “thank you sir. Man its pretty cold, or is it that man made me cold. Or maybe its just getting cold.”

Over at the judge’s house, he and Calixto continue talking. “Comparde its boiling hot today.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “listen Calixto I’ve talked to the preacher. I asked him to call the bishop, to try to convince him that he should come here. Well to have a singing mass, well he asked me for an explination. So I had to tell him, he acted like a patacoya. He said they were all supersitious nonsense. Don’t invent things, to scare people. He denied completely, to call the honorable bishop.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “see that comparde that without solid proof of some sort. We can’t prove that the devil is in corozal. Nobody is going to believe us. Not even the priest.” Calixto tells him, “you are correct judge. In fact I also mentioned, the issue with Ruben. He didn’t believe me either, in fact he almost started complaining. Hey the situation is really hard to believe, I can’t go to the mayor. Inform him Mr. Mayor I regret too inform you, that the devil has arrived in corozal. We must do something in that regard. He’s liabel to throw me down the first flight of stairs, but that only has one floor.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “what so now we cross our arms. To wait for a misfortune to hits us again?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “yes its that unfortunate but that is what occured in the past. Only a big misfortune, would make the mayor believe. To this town and the region.” Juana Manny arrives, “hello father hi mother hi future father.” Margarita Cruz utters, “hey is this my daughter.” Juana Manny tells her, “of course its me hey are you guys feeling cold lately.” She then enters the house.

Over at the dolorosa, Poncho is cold and his father fixes him a hot coffee.” Poncho tells him, “I don’t know what this is. Its this blasted cold, it just won’t go away.” The town drunk is also affected. Octavio ask, “hey are you sure you just don’t have a fever? You know, when one has a fever one gets the chill.” Poncho tells him, “its not a fever my mother already took my temperature everwhere. Its this coldness it just won’t go away.” Octavio asks, “maybe you ate something that making you sick? Or had a bad drink?” Poncho tells him, “listen here we don’t serve bad liquor here. Plus regarding food, I’ve eating the same foods isn’t that right dad.” Mr. Sarmiento utters, “yes.” Poncho tells him, “food from everyday another one.” Octavio ask, “other than the cold what else are you feeling?” Poncho tells him, “nothing else I even got some blood work and urine samples done. Everything is simply normal.” Octavio tells him, “oh man no more Poncho.” Then the band plays orchestra music. Poncho ask, “hey has lasador and the band gone crazy.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina tells Juana Bautista. “Yes Juana Bautista Manuel Efe with me. Well he has been very kind towards me. He’s been quite attentive too me, he’s always had his details and such. I really think yes, that’s the solution or no? Accept him, and get married too him. I don’t want to continue suffering over Ruben. I’m really tired of that, I just don’t want to die. Seeing him getting married, at the altar with Maria Delia.” Juana Bautista starts freaking out, and acting like Juana Matilde. “Oh girl oh no just two days ago, you were crying over Ruben. Well what is the word, impossible. Now you want to marry Manuel Efe? Manuel Efe is like very funny, sympatico with him. I feel great being with him really chevede. Well you well, I don’t know I’m just saying. How can you think, of getting married to him. Well over night like?” Juana Valentina simply utters, “what?”

Over in sincelejo, Ruben barges into Yolanda Del Cabrales’s office. Her secretary tells her, “sorry senora but I couldn’t stop the senor.” Ruben tells her, “the one that couldn’t detain me the one leaving is you. May I talk with the senora?” The secretary leaves and closes the door. Yolanda asks, “what Ruben Calixto are you surprised to see me this way?” Ruben tells her, “I overheard you had some serious illness but they are quite dramatic.” Yolanda tells him, “well as soon as I got too know you. These problems showed up everywhere.” Ruben tells her, “hey its none of my problem your the one that went looking for them. I assure you.” Yolanda tells him, “che the day that you rejected me was the day that my life changed. Now then why did you show up here.” Ruben tells her, “I came to ask you for the truth. Confess that you and my cousin, set up a trap that was for Juana Valentina as well.” Yolanda tells him, “man your still wanting to have a romance with that Juana Valentina girl still. The Juana Valentina, that one I can’t pronounce the mota.” Ruben tells her, “yes I know that Juana Valentina.” Yolanda tells him, “it simply can’t be I thought you were less of a brute. I thought your head was stronger than the heart. Yes you are young, but don’t mulitply doing stupid things.” Ruben tells her, “that is all that I needed. You too judge me, well you know what. I could care less, what your thinking. Now tell me, what did you win with all of this.” Yolanda tells him, “you know something look you showed. That I am not the idiot you thought I was. I would once again do the same thing all over again. Once again hire you, to look at your face. Be happy that you two aren’t together.”

Ruben asks, “is that all? The vulger excuse of a disgusting vengence Yolanda. Hey really back track your decision, if you really told the truth. You would really feel more better.” Yolanda tells him, “listen if the truth is that all of your problems are with Juana Valentina. Its for the better, I never want to see you ever in my life. Now get up right now.” Ruben tells her, “Yolanda I don’t know. How your life was, with your ex-husband. Well what I have seen, you have never known true love. You’ve never felt this emptyness in the stomach. For this hope, to see the person that you love. Never have you become obsessed, with seeing a smile or a look. Of someone that you love? You’ve never felt this uncontrollable desire. To hug and caress, the one person that you do love? To grab their hands, and transmit everything that one feels.” Yolanda ask, “and when did you become a poet ache.” Ruben tells her, “you would understand this if you had ever loved Yolanda.” Tell the truth, its the most dignified part of a human being. That is love, to celebrate that strenth thats in the earth. That motor that makes one more noble. That makes us no good things, and not do bad things or hateful.” Yolanda tells him, “fine leave leave once and for all. Now then I just hope, to never see you here in sincelejo.” Ruben tells her, “I should be happy that your paying for everything that you made me suffer Yolanda. But its not like this, I also want to loathe you but I simply can’t. Goodbye Yolanda.” Yolanda utters, “ache.”

Over at the pink house, the pink house has turned upside down. Juana Bautista is now Juana Manny. Juana Matilde is now Juana Calidad. Juana Calidad is now Juana Matilde. While Juana Valentina, is now Juana Bautista. “Girls we must stay calm. If we just analysis this situation, we can find the cause of what’s going on. What is occuring, destiny has already written it. It can’t be change, although we can understand them.” Juana Matilde tells her, “no no Juana Valentina may god have pity upon us. You are talking like Juana Bautista. Oh saint astokio bendito, please do help us out.” Juana Calidad tells them, “well the thing is I don’t know but I’m just saying. Its really nothing, well what’s going on with us is a bit chevede. A bit fun well I don’t know I’m just saying.” Tere tells them, “umda what’s going on why are you lot talking this way.” Juana Calidad tells them, “I think everyone should be a bit calm. More tranquil, more fresh like me then you will see. Then all of that, will not be so important too you all.” Juana Bautista tells her, “your talking like Juana Calidad and you know what I’m ready too beat you up. You have to react no fregue.” Tere tells them, “things in this house have gone backwards.” Juana Manny returns home, “oh girls are you all cold.” Juana Matilde tells her, “sor juana inez de la cruz. What is going on with you Juana Manny? Come over here and sit down.” Juana Manny tells them, “I’m so very cold it must be the coldest its ever been here.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no girl on the contrary its the hotest day of the month. Definantely destiny is in fact, playing games with us.” Someone is at the door, Juana Manny asks. “Anybody have a hot water bottle, that they can lend me? Or how about interior wear like longjohns.” Juana Bautista tells her, “what you need to do is go out there. Go for a long run, so it can heat up your system.” Juana Manny tells them, “with this cold forget about it. Hey why are you talking like me?” Juana Bautista utters, “hey I don’t know.”

Todoelmundo and Ruben have retured. “Hi girls how’s it going?” Everyone utters, “hello.” Juana Matilde tells them, “your suppose to response sin pecado concebido.” Ruben ask, “Juana Manny what’s wrong with you?” Juana Manny tells him, “I’m freezing.” Juana Matilde tells him, “the lord and the virgins hope that nothing is really bad Ruben. I think that Juana Manny is ill. Saint Astokio Bendita, and saint antonia maria clarice. Help that Juana Manny gets better.” Todoelmundo asks Ruben, “see now you know that maybe our theory has merits.” Tere utters, “what are we going to do?” Ruben asks, “Juana Manny are you sure your not sick?” Juana Manny tells him, “my mother took my temperature and I don’t have a fever. We even called the pharmacy, to see if I can take something. We called and they said, we had the wrong number. To instead go to a pharmacy in covejas, or something to that effect.” Juana Bautista ask, “and your mother allowed them to talk to her in that way. Hey if that happened to me, well I would show them who they were messing with girl. They have to respect us those unfortunate pharmacist.” Juana Calidad tells her, “hey Juana Bautista do me a favor. No sir, we have to take things quite calmly. No we can’t allow us, to be stepped on no sir. Well without violence, are you listening to me alright. No violence.”

Juana Valentina tells them, “now everyone calm down.” Ruben tells Tere, “Terezalsura is this all a joke right?” Tere tells him, “no no they woke up this morning like this. All their personalities were switched Ruben.” Todoelmundo tells them, “see nothing else would surprise me.” Tere tells them, “its their personalities Ruben they exchange them in a matter of minutes. You do understand me? They then begin talking, like another one no sir.” Juana Valentina tells them, “I’m going to prepare lemonade for everyone.” Juana Manny ask, “hey prepare something hot for me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey Juana Manny your a scorpion, Your suppose to dominate your emotions. For they are in your best astrology position.” Tere asks, “and how do you know about symbols and astrology?” Juana Valentina tells her, “me well I’m guessing hanging around with Juana Bautista. But I’m just saying, I don’t know well really this is kind of fun very cheverde. To get too know that really, well I really think that people. Well one gets to know more about them. I don’t know, I’m just saying excuse me.” Juana Matilde in tears asks, “virgin of the heavens did she talk or did I?” Juana Manny tells them, “enough were going to stop this stupid game. I don’t know exactly, what’s going on with us. We are going to force ourselves, to be the same juanas as before. This is become brown to black no sir.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh saint astokio bendita was that our oldest sister. Or was that Juana Manny?” Ruben tells them, “hey I’m going into the kitchen. So I can talk, and help Juana Valentina.” Juana Bautista tells him, “no Ruben.”

In the kitchen Ruben asks, “Juana Valentina I’m going to ask you a question.” Juana Valentina tells him, “you know what? I would love it, if you left me in peace. It would be better, for everyone or no?” Ruben asks, “did you or not kiss Manuel Efe?” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey that’s none of your business no sir. No no you get married, and I’m going to start a new life. Its like for the honest justice or no.” Ruben asks, “enough Juana Valentina stop talking like Juana Matilde. Just tell me did you kiss Manuel Efe yes or no?” Juana Valentina tells him, “it seems too me that the words are coming out all by themselves. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. Fine I’m going to tell you the truth, hey don’t bother me leave in in peace. I am shocked, I don’t like it. Well to cut off my liberty, I’m just saying but yes. Manuel Efe kissed me and I returned it. Happy now?” Ruben asks, “so you did kiss Manuel Efe then.” Juana Valentina tells him, “I’m going to tell you something straight out. I don’t know, but I’m considering seriously. The question that Manuel Efe asked me. Maybe I’m just saying, well then he won’t be just your cousin. But hey now how does it go. Brother in law.” Juana Bautista shows up, “now then what is the deal between the two of you. Hey I want to know, when are you going to understand. That love between you two. Is nothing but impossible, its not suppose to happen. Or do I have too hit you two, so you two can fully understand. No me fregue.”

Manuel Efe is in his hotel room. He has cucumbers in his eyes. “Daaa oh man its Juana Valentina, man this woman. Is obessed with me, she’s following me everywhere. Oh well I was going to go her house, I have no choice but to greet her like this. Well then. He then heads to the door. Is it you my bunny rabbit?” Yolanda angrily replies, “what bunny or what you open this door. I am Yolanda ex-del Cabrales now open this door.” Manuel Efe tells her, “sure ok come on in.” Yolanda asks, “now what did you say to Ruben Calixto Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “jolly when we talked and you told me what had occured. Well I never imaged this, oh poor jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “hey respond to my question why did you talk about us to your cousin.” Manuel Efe asks, “what of what jolly? Yolanda hits him with her purse, ouch.” Yolanda repeats, “what did tell him?” Manuel Efe tells her, “I didn’t tell her nothing. I told him, we had seen one another a couple of times nothing else.” Yolanda tells him, “Manuel Efe you have betrayed me.” Manuel Efe tells her, “no no I didn’t just calm yourself. Jolly we are not going to go anywhere. Please calm down.” Yolanda tells him, “no I don’t want to calm myself. What I want you to explain too me, is why and how did Ruben Calixto figure out. That we confabulated against him?” Manuel Efe tells her, “jolly let me explain too you please. Apparently someone saw me, talking to you at the hotel. Someone saw me entering the pink house, when you lived there. I told Rubencho basically, that I wanted to have a small adventure with you. Nothing more than that, I told him. That you wanted nothing too do with me. Always with Rubencho, always with him. That’s why I always envied him, well everything that is occuring with you. All your misfortunes, your becoming bald and everything. But let me tell you, jolly you still do stop traffic. She hits him with her purse. He just utters, daaa.”

At the pink house, Juana Valentina tells them. “You know I’m going to change into something else. Before Manuel Efe arrives, well I’m like a little unjoyful. Anway excuse me.” She then heads upstairs, Ruben asks. “Tere how long has this been going on?” Tere tells him, “since this morning.” Ruben asks, “has this ever happened before really?” Tere tells him, “well yes all of them could suprise me. But I knew who they were, because of their unique personalities.” Juana Calidad comes out of her bedroom. She’s dressed like Juana Bautista. “So they left?” They utter, “yes.” Juana Caldid tells them, “well then excuse me.” Ruben asks, “Terezalsura you sure they didn’t eat anything strange. Or maybe took a medicine?” Todoelmundo tells him, “hey there’s only one reason.” Ruben tells him, “listen man not that again. You and my father, with that absurd idea. If you continue with this, that you two have gone crazy.” Tere asks, “what idea?” Todoelmundo tells her, “the devil is among us.” Tere tells him, “oh no not with that Todoelmundo. Please don’t say that, its starting to scare me.” She then blesses herself.

At the hotel, Manuel Efe is now lying down very confident like. Yolanda utters, “you and Juana Valentina?” Manuel Efe tells her, “exactly Jolly. She realized she couldn’t stop despressing me. Well thanks really too you. If Juana Valentina hadn’t seen you with Ruben. In that pink house, if she hadn’t received such a hard hit. They would have left together.” Yolanada asks, “so that is when she held onto too you?” Manuel Efe tells her, “exactly jolly at first she played hard to get. But later she fell like the rest.” Yolanda asks, “so that means if Ruben Calixto and I had there been something. Like she think there was, Juana Valentina and Ruben Calixto would have left together.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes you really created a miracle jolly. Yes that is the truth. Let me tell you something, that love between the two of them. Yolanda sits down and remembers Ruben’s words. Jolly don’t tell me that you became deaf as well?” Yolanda tells her, “of course not now what were you telling me.” Manuel Efe tells her, “I was going to call room service do you care to eat anything?” Yolanda tells him, “no thanks no Manuel Efe. Ruben Calixto, should be thanking me that I saved him from an ilicit love.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well yes then that I am going to be in charge of his little sister.” Yolanda tells him, “you know something.” Manuel Efe tells her, “tell me?” Yolanda tells him, “I’m going too think some things through in my head. See you later.” Manuel Efe tells her, “jolly be careful in leaving so nobody can see you ok.” She then takes off.

At the dolorosa, the gang are there. Octavio tells them, “only two of you are very cold. Maybe you ate something, that was quite distinctive from the rest. Or maybe drank something that made you sick.” Poncho asks, “Juana Manny do you feel as if the cold penetrates your bones?” Juana Manny tells him, “yes that is it exactly.” Juana Bautista tells them, “look you two have a fight and then that will be over.” Orlando asks, “what my life is that what you read in the cards?” Juana Bautista tells him, “what cards no way listen. These two are a bunch of lazies boy. You can tell from far away, yes they both need the dicipline of a boxer.” Orlando asks, “why are you talking like Juana Manny my love?” Juana Calidad tells him, “its logic and typical she has the same characteristics of Juana Manny sign.” Mauricio tells her, “why are you talking like that?” Orlando tells him, “she’s talking like Juana Bautista.” Juana Matilde tells them, “no I know exactly what’s going on here. When the virgin de fatima showed up to those children. He told them clearly, they had to pray with a rosario. Plus tell the world that everyone had too pray. Nobody has done so, the way it should be. That’s why we are going to pray right now. Come over here now.” Miguel tells her, “Juana Matilde stop this and calm down.” Juana Matilde tells him, “in the name of the father son and the holy spirit.” Miguel asks, “are you feeling alright?” Juana Matilde tells him, “no I feel terrible Miguel. I don’t know the rosario, Juana Calidad please give me a lesson please.” Juana Bautista tells her, “we don’t have to worry. Everything has a time, what ever it is will be.” Mauricio nervously laughs and tells them, “now then girls you had us going and very worried. Hey that was a great joke, how chevede. That’s enough alright.” Juana Bautista angrily gets up, “so you think were joking. That were a bunch of clowns Fuentelafria?” Orlando tells her, “my love calm down.” Juana Bautista yells out, “well no.” Octavio tells her, “enough which ever juana you are. This occurs a few times but, the politician is correct. Enough with the jokes.” Juana Manny gets up and tells them all. “Hey one minute, one single minute no sir. This isn’t a joke, when we pulled that bad prank on poor Manuel Efe. Over in covena, at Mauricio Fuentelafria’s house. I won’t permit my sisters to do that again, with all you guys no sir. Poncho do you have, a hot water bottle around there.”

Back at the pink house, Tere tells them. “I don’t like you talking that way Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells them, “listen Tere earthquakes are around because there is the presence of the devil. It occured in 1979.” Ruben tells him, “everything has a logical explination.” Todoelmundo tells him, “listen Ruben everything in corzal is ilogical. Ilogical was when, all the rain fell down then one day a bright sun shone.” Ruben tells him, “well that was a meterological event we are used too. It was just a cyclone with rain, it arrived and left.” Todelmundo tells him, “yes but when the women suffered from the indifference kiss. Was that also a meterological event.” Ruben tells him, “that’s a sickness like every other one.” Tere tells her, “from that sickeness no Ruben Salguero.” Todoelmundo asks, “well then explain too me those strange lights that appeared all over town. All that buried treasure, even in the one in your backyard of your house.” Ruben tells him, “fine science hasn’t touched that. But I’m sure that a logical explination will be found for that. Because now we know, why there’s a rainbow after it rains. But before the indians thought, it was a manifestation of god.” Tere tells him, “what Ruben is saying has some sense in it.” Todoelmundo tells them, “what has sense has no sense. How can you explain the saint ursula church. It has fallen seven times, or how can you explain that the children couldn’t talk. The men became impotent in one month. Or how can you explain, in april not a single drop of water dropped down. Plus that has been proven, there were numerous accounts of infidedility.” Ruben asks, “when was this?” Todoelmundo tells him, “when in 1979 its one of digits that appear. That calculate 26, that is when devil takes over corozal. The earthquakes stop when he leaves.” Tere tells him, “now then enough talk with the devil please. Oh please or else he might show right here.” Then the earth begins going, Todoelmundo utters. “Dear lord, dear lord.” Tere yells out, “hey forget me man. I’m taking off todoelmundo, he won’t mess with me.” Todoelmundo ask, “see these earthquake prove the devil is among us.”

Over at the hotel, Nina is on the phone. “Hello no I don’t understand.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey nina here’s my keys.” Nina ask, “exuse me but you speak italian right.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes.” Nina tells him, “well he’s an italian fellow I don’t understand nothing.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hello Franco how’s it going? How is the film going? The movie, I only heard that you had all left. Daaa, Geovani in Corozal? No he’s still in panama, a message for my cousin Ruben. Daaa I don’t understand what your trying to tell me. What is he saying? What I don’t understand? Who is this Francesco? Yes, I will tell Geovani when he arrives yes. My cousin Ruben, is the son of a man named Francisco daaa.”

At the salguero house, Ruben is trying to work. But Manuel Efe is there bothering him. “Listen to me clearly I’m breaking all ties with you.” Manuel Efe tells him, “you can’t Rubencho for your my cousin we share the same blood. Daaa plus if you want to harm me. You would be hurting as well Juana Valentina.” Ruben tells him, “are you threatening me? Starting a rumor, that you yourself have invented.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey I’m not inventing nothing. You very well know this Rubencho anyways. Fortunately that is now over, your going to marry Maria Delia. Let me tell you Rubencho, my relationship with Juana Valentina. Is going like hot cakes, more and more better. Its consolidating its forming.” Ruben tells him, “great this is all that I needed. Not only are you my cousin, but soon you would be my brother in law?” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh that would be my greatest dream.” Ruben angrily tells him, “listen here Manuel Efe. The fight stops when Calixto shows up. Hello father, are you planning on going out?” Manuel Efe tells him, “uncle if you want I will take you anywhere you want. My european car is outside.” Calixto tells him, “well thank you nephew. I perfer to walk a bit, then I can get sleepy and can sleep.” Manuel Efe tells him, “listen come with me back to the hotel. We have some rum, and then you can walk back here and go to bed rested. I also have to go to the hotel, to deal with those italian guys.” Calixto asks, “what italians?” Manuel Efe tells him, “you know those guys with the movie.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes those italians Geovani Franco Francisco. Listen the thing is Francisco well he’s… When he doesn’t see the two move, or be shocked by that name. He tries a different approch. Well he forgot something at the hotel. You see I’m the only one, that speaks italian at that hotel. I am like a translator, you do understand me.” Calixto tells him, “fine fine I will accept your invitation. I’ll be waiting so then lets go. See you son.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes uncle lets go.” Ruben tells him, “Manuel Efe greetings to your accomplice Geovani fellow.” Manuel Efe tells him, “Rubencho listen with Geovani that was only and exclusively work related. I was just a translator, nothing else.” Calixto yells out, “come on Manuel Efe I’m waiting come on lets go.” Manuel Efe utters, “I’m coming uncle Calixto nothing not even a flinch. Reflect Manuel reflect.”

Over at the hotel bar, Calixto tells him. “A lot of strange things occur her in corozal. Other worldy at times.” Manuel Efe asks, “well I want to discuss this italians. To come all this way just to make a movie. Let me tell you uncle, corozal is pretty far away from italy.” Calixto tells him, “oh italy is so far away. What I’m referring too, its just extraordinary things. How about that indifference kiss. There’s a case.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes of course two times.” Calixto tells him, “yes two times this indifference kiss has occured. The first time it happened in sahagun nephew. Now the theory of Todoelmundo, is that this has occured six times.” Manuel Efe asks, “so these italian fellows have come by six times?” Calixto tells him, “no nephew the demon.” The man in the white hat appears, Manuel Efe utters. “The demon the devil uncle yes?” Calixto tells him, “yes that is the theory that todoelmundo has come up with. Its a bit confusing to say.” Manuel Efe asks, “yes do tell me what the theory of todoelmundo is or what?” Calixto tells him, “he thinks that every time one of these earthquakes come about. Well its the sign of the devil. So many extraordinary things can occur. Well that is what Todoelmundo has said. Manuel Efe tries to hide, but the man in the white hat has taken off. Now then nephew its late, and I’m going to bed. Hopefully the todoelmundo’s theory, makes me get too sleep. Goodnight and thank you nephew.” Manuel Efe then remembers, the talk Geovani had with the juanas. “I’ve been in corozal, one time before about 23 years ago.” Manuel Efe utters, “yes 23 years ago. I now understand so many questions. Oh yes of course, but who is this Francisco?”

The next morning, Manuel Efe visits the pink house. Juana Valentina is dressed like Juana Matilde. “I’ve brought for you, these delicious almonds chaket you don’t know how difficult it was for me to get you this. They are quite fine, and are all for you. So perfect such as you are.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh thank you so very much Manuel Efe. Well they are like, well I don’t know. A very nice gesture, oh come over here so I can give you a nice kiss. Sonny you are so very beautiful. Now then lets see how delicious they are.” Manuel Efe asks, “why are you wearing this?” Juana Valentina tells him, “I just don’t know my sisters and I. Well we are, how to explain this switched.” Manuel Efe tells her, “you mean like switched papers? What are you trying too tell me?” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I don’t know. The thing is every one of us, is like one another. But I’m not well you understand me right? I don’t think we should worry about it. But you know I think, its really chevede you know.” Manuel Efe tells her, “but thing is I don’t know but your like Juana Matilde. Well in everything.” Juana Valentina tells him, “still I am Juana Valentina or isn’t that important Manuel Efe?” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes of course. Yes that’s important my rabbit.”

Juana Valentina tells him, “oh man I really was missing you. With you I pass the days very chevede.” Manuel Efe tells her, “you know something I’m fulfilling a dream that I just don’t want to get up from ever.” Juana Valentina tells him, “now then Manuel Efe please do me a favour. There’s something, that I do want to tell you. Well the thing is, I don’t know. I have been thinking so very much, well I really think that. We should clear things up.” Manuel Efe asks, “and what is it all about or what?Just talk talk.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well alright I’m going to tell you. I have been talking with Ruben. Well I heard something, well that made me think. Well the thing is, I am not worried for a bit. Well I like things to be very clear. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying.” Manuel Efe asks, “about what?” Juana Valentina tells him, “look Manuel Efe. I did see you, I mean heard you say Manuel Efe. You were talking with Ruben, when you told him. Well that we were in love, and you know what that was a complete lie. Its a lie, you are mistaken Manuel Efe. Yes you are very mistaken sonny, so do me a favour.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes yes of course.” Manuel Efe asks, “so did that bother you a lot?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes it did. Well it just shocked me, its just not true. Ruben and I, there’s nothing distinctive between us. We do have a relationship but were siblings.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes very normal. Daaa how could I ever think there was something between the two of you. You know for you two, to have more than that. Plus considering your blood siblings and all. Its just impossible.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes totally impossible. Yes yes its impossible.”

Over at the judge’s house, the four are still doing some research. Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen we are in 1987 and everything is still good.” Todoelmundo tells him, “what interests us in 1989 judge.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “hey I’m almost there Todoelmundo. Have some patience, it says here. Every friday around three in the afternoon. The ladies from the christo religious society. They walked the principal roads saying the rosario. With a gold incense burner, that mysteriously disappeared. In one unfortunately fire, they also say well nothing else.” Calixto asks, “wait a minute comparde what do you mean nothing? Let me see, oh my its blank.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen I consult these books all the time. I never noticed that a whole page was erased.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “listen it might just be a coincidence.” Calixto tells her, “no there is much too much coincidence. We needed that missing page.” Judge Geremias Guerra looks at another book. “Oh here’s is something, wait a moment. Yes 1988 a interesting case in corozal. A man tried to sue a company, called san bario compania. Because he had papers stating, that there was a fraud in the company. They were never able to prove the case was true.” Margarita Cruz asks, “and what does that have too do with anything?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, ” I remember I read these pages. A couple of months ago, when I was working on that case.” Calixto tells him, “yes on a job you were showing me. So durning that time, you needed to see these pages from 1988 they weren’t blank.” Todoelmundo tells him, “san bario compania. S.m.s.h it was houses in monterey. They were businesses, that made circular dates and calenders. It was made up of several people of the population. Man I remembered, what the whole world knows Don Calixto.” Calixto tells him, “great man before you forget so what happened in 1988?” The earth begins to shake once more and Todoelmundo once again looses his memory. Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh dear lord.” Todoelmundo utters, “man I forgot again what occured in 1988 Don Calixto.” Judge Geremias Guerra utters, “umda.”

Back at the pink house, Manuel Efe is still with Juana Valentina. “You know something, I would do anything for you. Including on our honeymoon, we could even go to europe. If you want you, we could also take all your sisters. For me there’s simply no problems. You know as long as I can see that your happy. I will do anything.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh Manuel Efe I’m shocked oh man I just don’t have an answer too give you.” Manuel Efe tells her, “you don’t have to answer absolutely nothing. Listen think about it, then you can tell me alright. For I know the answer will be a afirmative.”

Juana Bautista shows up dressed up like Juana Calidad. “Saint antonia maria clairce.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.” Juana Bautista tells them, “you must answer blessed her saintly name.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes bless her saintly name.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Valentina the lord knows. If you had been at the dolorosa, you would have had a pleasant time.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well us being here. We had a great time didn’t we Manuel Efe?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes we did.” Juana Bautista tells them, “I say thank you to sor juanas inez de la cruz. That he heard my prayers, thank you for arriving Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes and why are you talking like that Juana Bautista?” Juana Valentina tells him, “man your as twisted and confused as Juana Matilde. Didn’t I already tell you. You know all about my sisters.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes yes. All of your cables were twisted. But I didn’t think things, were very grave daaa.”

Juana Valentina tells Juana Manny, “hi.” Juana Manny tells him, “here has it been cold?” They all utter, “no.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no here girl.” Juana Bautista tells them, “I have been thinking this is a sign of something. If Juana Bautista reads the cards. We might find very interesting things in this destiny.” Juana Bautista tells her, “no way Juana Manny no I don’t play with demon things.” She then heads to the kitchen. Juana Valentina tells them, “umda just relax girl.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa man this is for someone to go crazy.” Juana Manny ask, “are you nicely attended Manuel Efe?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes.” Juana Manny asks, “do you care for a hot chocolate. Or a hot coffee please, it sure is cold around here.” Manuel Efe utters, “sure that’s nice.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I want one too.”

She then leaves and Mauricio and Juana Calidad come by. Juana Calidad punches Manuel Efe. “Hi there Manuel Efe, how’s it going?” Manuel Efe tells them, “what I’m hearing and seeing is really pathetic.” Mauricio tells him, “well you better get used too this european man. For this is quite serious, its no joke. Listen Cadi I’m going to pray, to your sor juanas inez de la cruz. So you can once again be the same. I am very tired of this.” Juana Valentina ask, “what’s tomorrow?” Juana Calidad tells her, “man your as flighty as Juana Matilde. Hey I just want to beat you up to react. For tomorrow Mauricio is going to ask for my hand.” She hits Manuel Efe one more time before taking off. Juana Valentina starts freaking out. “It just that, it just shocks me.” Juana Matilde shows up, “now calm down Juana Valentina enough already. Having that tempertantrum in front of Manuel Efe. Doesn’t it give you pity?”

Over at the salguero house, Ruben tells Maria Delia. “You know I think, your the only bride in town. That has had so many bachelorette parties.” Maria Delia tells him, “and the one’s that are missing. Carlotica Valderrama, Marujita Visbal, Gloria Revero.” Ruben tells her, “I think we should postpone the wedding. So you can go to all those bridal showers.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh no Rubensito don’t even say that as a joke Rubensito. Or else the devil will show up and he will ruin them.” Manuel Efe shows up, “Manuel Efe has arrived.” Ruben utters, “if it isn’t the king of rome.” Manuel Efe utters, “oh hello goddaughter.” Maria Delia tells him, “hello how have you been?” Manuel Efe utters, “Rubencho my cousin. My aunt Dona.” Dona Dona tells him, “hello nephew how are you?” Manuel Efe tells them, “its great seeing all of you.” Maria Delia tells him, “Manuel Efe nice to see you godfather. So how is your plane?” Manuel Efe tells her, “waiting to when ever you two want to go flying. Well go anywhere.” Ruben tells him, “well then your going to be left waiting.” Dona Dona tells him, “well in that plane of yours you should take me to Barranquilla. So I can buy that dress for the wedding. The date is so close, and you nephew nothing.” Manuel Efe tells her, “aunt you don’t even have to say it. We can go later if you want, we take that plane all the way to Barranquila.” Ruben tells her, “listen mother I wouldn’t permit you to go anywhere. If I know the plane is piloted by my cousin. Your really crazy.” Maria Delia tells him, “well count me in to go with you on that trip Dona Dona.” Ruben tells her, “yes and I’ll point you down that I’m taking you home. So come on say goodbye, we’re going. Bye mom, see you later.” Maria Delia goes to Dona Dona, and air kisses her. “Well then Dona Dona, thank you for everything.” Dona Dona tells her, “yes dear bye.” Maria Delia utters, “bye godfather.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes bye Maria Delia. Don’t forget in the shower, one has to comply.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh thanks for reminding me bye godfather.” Ruben yells out, “I’m leaving Maria Delia.” Maria Delia utters, “oh my love bye all.”

Manuel Efe tells Dona, “aunt I was talking with some italian men.” Dona Dona gets quite nervous, “italian men? So which one’s.” Manuel Efe tells her, “one that came from Barranquilla. He was selling some italian clothes from italy. Oh they were very beautiful.” Dona Dona gives a sigh of relief. “Hey you shouldn’t worry yourself so much nephew.” Manuel Efe asks, “why did you get that way? Or what?” Dona Dona ask, “what ever do you mean?”Manuel Efe tells her, “well I mean your just quite nervous. Your face changed as well, you began sweating and your hands trembled.” Dona Dona tells him, “the thing is european clothes are quite expensive Manuel Efe. One shouldn’t put so much emphesis on a dress. I mean one can easily buy it here.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes of course.” Dona Dona gets up, “oh this girl Ophelia is there more tea?” Manuel Efe utters, “you’ve been caught aunt. Daaa who would even have thought?”

Manuel Efe returns to his hotel suite. He throws everything on the table, “reflect Manuel Efe reflect. You must reflect right now, for you don’t have anybody you can reflects with. Think, Ruben is the son of my aunt Dona. Plus from a italian man, by the name of Francisco. Daaa hey what a fling my aunt must have had. Oh what a pity what a moment, daaa it only signifies one thing. He has a tempertantrum. That Juana Valentina and Ruben aren’t siblings. Well you know what, that isn’t important. For my aunt Dona, isn’t going to be talking too anybody. About that fling she had no way. The only thing she bothers my uncle Calixto with is. With those five sins of his iligitimates. Oh but her, yes she’s going to keep quiet. But I can’t be so sure of this, this doubt is right there. Attentive, now first solution. Ruben marries Maria Delia as fast as possible. Secondly Juana Valentina marries me, as soon as possible. That’s that.”

Juana Valentina is having breakfast the next day. “Please sor juanas inez de la cruz please enlighten me. So I can tells Manuel Efe the right response.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes too me Manuel Efe seems like a great person. Well I think, I don’t know I’m just saying. That he could be a good husband too you. Well I’m just saying.” Juana Valentina tells them, “oh I’m going to take things calmly. I have time to think about this. I know that the virgin will tell me, what I am suppose to do so there.” Juana Calidad tells them, “you know something last night. I was so very worried, over getting asked for my hand but. Well today, I began to think and I understood. That is Mauricio Fuentelafria is for me. Everything will go well, the one with the last word is destiny.” Juana Bautista tells her, “very good nun very good. Well what one should do, is put one’s breasts out in this situation. If someone interferes, well then break his face. Then that’s that.” Juana Manny tells them, “I couldn’t sleep at all last night because of this cold. Well I’m just saying, my room should have an heater. Well that will be a solution for me. Well I don’t know, but I’m just saying.” Juana Bautista tells her, “a heater in corozal. You’ve gone complete crazy Juana Manny. See this is what were going too do. We will wait a couple of days, hopefully you will recover. If no were taking you too the hospital. So a doctor can exam you. What ever demon has possesed you. Image you?” Juana Manny tells them, “no I just don’t think that’s a great solution. See with Poncho they didn’t find nothing. Its just that I’m pretty cold.” The phone rings, Tere angrily tells them. “You know what, you are all crazy and driving me crazy as well.” They all utter, “yeah right.” Juana Matilde tells them, “just answer the phone.” Tere utters, “oh hello Don Calixto.” Juana Valentina tells them, “we must pray that this goes away soon. That our personalites return to us, for I have never heard the case of a saint. That this occured too, oh no.” Tere tells them, “that was Don Calixto and he’s coming here. To get all of you, so he can show off the salon to Juana Manny.”

At the salguero house, Calixto tells Dona. “Listen Margarita Cruz is organizing a group of ladies. To do a rosario on friday, at three in the plaza.” Dona Dona tells him, “even with that she won’t be cleaning her sin.” Calixto tells her, “she asked me to invite you. Well I mentioned to her, about the gold monteseno rosario with the fine cross on it. That you inherited from you grandmother. She thinks its a good idea, well that you take it.” Dona Dona tells him, “first of all Mr. Salguero. She doesn’t have to bring messages through you. Plus I have no intention to reunite myself. To pray with a sinner, using my gold rosario that I inherited from my grandmother.” Ruben asks, “hey aren’t we going?” Calixto tells him, “sure were going.” Ruben utters, “bye mother.” Calixto tells her, “I should be returning around lunchtime. Look Dona, for helping out my daughter.” He kisses her, and she utters. “Yeah yeah yeah.”

Over at the pink house, the girls are dressed. Juana Valentina utters, “saint astokio bendita, sor juana inez de la cruz. Mother of mine, that is in the heaven’s above. Please iluminate me, for me to be able to make a decision. Hey and why am I thinking, well of getting married to Manuel Efe. Why is this, when I do love Ruben. No I can’t forgive him lord. For he did me wrong, but I do love him. Well then how can I think, of even marrying Manuel Efe Cuadradro. But that Ruben he did it too me with that Yolanda woman. Then he shows up with his scary frog face. Asking me to forgive him. He has guts that bastard, no well the best thing for everyone is. Well that Ruben marries Maria Delia. Yes that shocks me, but yes that is for the best. Well I don’t know, but I’m just saying. Well what if I do marry Manuel Efe? What would happen? Well yes it might be so, could it be?”

(Awesome acting.)

Juana Manny and the girls go to the new beauty salon. “Oh father this is so beautiful. I think its better than the last one. I’m just saying.” Calixto tells her, “you can say I have more experience than before. Plus your mother helped me out, in picking out the location.” Juana Manny tells her, “in fact in this place one has a feeling. Well of coming here to live or no?” The girls utter, “yes that is true.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh Juana Manny you must bless god for this. This is the best present, that you have ever received.”

Juana Bautista tells her, “this is great use this opportunity to fix up Juana Calidad for her big dinner.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no its best that Juana Calidad goes the way god brought her into this world. Because if god wanted her to be distinctive. She would have been created another way or no. I’m just saying.” Juana Bautista tells her, “hey don’t invent Juana Valentina. God also made hair sylists, and manicurists. Every one of them, that fixes us up. I am just saying. You should also get fixed up.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh no that doesn’t go with me.” Juana Calidad tells them, “I will allow anything that you wish to do too me. For what is meant to be, will be. For that is how things are written.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes yes its written but if Mauricio Fuentelafria grabs you. Well I’ll be the first one that will hit him. Whoop whoop.” Juana Bautista tells them, “now then girls lets all get fixed up.” Juana Manny tells them, “alright I will fix all of you.” Juana Valentina tells them, “me no sor juana inez de la cruz never fixed herself up.”

Calixto touches his forehead, Margarita Cruz glances at Ruben. Ruben tells them, “I warned you old man. This exchange of personalities, is more grave than I thought.” Calixto tells them, “no everything is more grave than Todoelmundo has mentioned. Your mother doesn’t want to take part. With the ladies that Margarita is organzing.”Margarita Cruz tells them, “that doesn’t surprise me not for once.” Calixto tells them, “well the thing is I was interested and hoping. That she would use the gold montesno rosario, with the fine cross on it. Apparently that rosaries, well it has mystical miraculous properties. That is what your mother has told me.” Ruben tells him, “yes mother has mentioned that before. When I was a child, apparently that rosario helped my grandmother when she had arthritis. She told me my grandmother, would wrap it around her hand four times on the right hand. She wore it for six months, seven days a week and she was cured. Never again did she feel that pain.” Calixto tells him, “but you should really convince your mother. Help all those women who joined Margarita. If not she can lend the rosario. So we can use it when they join at the plaza.” Ruben tells them, “your still insisting its the devil. Enough change the topic already, I’ve had enough of it. Bye girls.” Juana Manny tells them, “hey wait right here we need someone really important. Oh father thank you, your so divine. I just don’t know how to say this, but I’m really very happy.”

Calixto tells them, “I just like seeing that all of you are so very happy.” Juana Manny tells him, “your so divine. My gift for your weddings, well be doing the make-up and hair for free. It will be the best of gifts.” The girls all utter, “thank you.” Juana Manny utters, “oh I’m shocked well this included the older sister. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. That she has decided, to accept Manuel Efe’s marriage purposal.” Margarita Cruz glances at at very angrily Ruben. Calixto asks, “come over here so your saying that Manuel Efe purposed marriage too you Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes Don Calixto the saints are witnessed that I’m telling you the truth.” Calixto tells her, “yes he’s asked you on various occasions.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well this time its distinctive. This time around, he told me trasparently with his soul. I noticed it Don Calixto its a yes. I really do think, that Manuel Efe is really close to god.” Calixto asks, “come over here so what did you tell him?” Juana Valentina tells him, “I told him I was going to think it over. But I’m really considering telling him yes. I really do think that Manuel Efe has really changed so very much. I think that god iluminated him, I think he’s going to be a good husband for me.” Ruben is furious, but doesn’t say a word.

Todoelmundo visit the judge. “Listen I went over to various professors in their own homes. Get this all their books, well they were missing various pages. Especially when it was suppose to say, that mentioned the year 1988. Nothing could be found, even if you referenced that year. In fact the profesors didn’t even realize. How that date was erased from their memories. Especially when it deals with that year.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “yes I also had the same problem. I went to every law library, and I couldn’t find anything regarding that year. Nothing to shed clue to what is going on.” Todoelmundo tells him, “listen if we don’t do something about this. The devil is going to take full control here.”

Juana Caliad and Mauricio, are heading towards the salguero house. Mauricio ask, “do you really love me Juana Calidad?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes I do Mauricio it has been written. That we are meant for one another.” Mauricio tells her, “the thing is lately you are very strange. You notice other men, sometimes you talk like your sisters. Well this has me very confused. I don’t know what too think.” Juana Calidad tells him, “feeling aren’t governed by reason. If it were so, it would be so easy for some people. The important thing is, what you feel for me. You don’t have too reason with it, do what your heart dictates you too do.” Mauricio tells her, “you know something I believe in you. That is why I believe you. Even if you talk like Juana Bautista, I just don’t care. For on the day that we marry, you will make me the happiest man in corozal. In fact the entire world.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well then lets do what we came too do. Come on go on in, its there your going to ask for my hand.” Calixto comes out, “Juana Calidad your future in-laws want to talk to you. Later on the formal part begins. Then you are going to ask, for my daughter’s hand in marriage. Well then, lets go in.” The earth starts shaking, Mauricio utters. “I’m so nervous I feel the earth shake. Lord please help me out.”

At the dolorosa Orlando is talking with Todoelmundo. “Living here in corozal, I have come to one conclusion. Logic doesn’t exist, hey its not easy for me to accept this. Well I have spent my entire life, teaching otherwise. I have been lying to my students, the worst is I’ve been lying to myself.” Octavio tells him, “just great the professor has an extistentialism problem. Here I thought that you had the hope. That you would shed light, on the strange behaviors of our girlfriends but no. Now I’m left with just the hopes.” Orlando tells him, “how can I explain things for I am going crazy.” Todoelmundo tells them, “I do know what’s going on. I have a theory, but everyone will think I’ve gone crazy.” They utter, “no Todoelmundo we won’t.” Juana Manny show up, “oh guys its cold hey Poncho give me a rum please.” Orlando utters, “she’s acting like Juana Matilde.” Juana Manny tells them, “I came by so I can take my scary frog. Over to see my new beauty salon. The salon is beautiful, well I don’t know but I am just saying. Sure your going to like it.” Octavio tells her, “oh my firecracker I wanted to see you like always my firecracker. Hey at least hit me ok.” Juana Manny tells him, “why am I going to do that. Listen why be like that, life is meant to be lived freely and without any problems. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. Well yes I want my boyfriend, to be the first to see my beauty salon. That my father gave me, or no? I already told Juana Calidad. Well the first person, that’s going to get a haircut will be you. Well that’s what I believe.” Octavio tells her, “well at least you like all that cosmotology stuff.” Juana Manny gives him a hug and a kiss. “Oh my little scary frog, oh that’s strange. When I kissed you the cold disappeared.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Bautista is talking with Juana Valentina. “So are you really thinking about getting married to Manuel Efe?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I don’t swear for that’s a sin. Well I really do like Manuel Efe, I feel now a special attraction too him. Before it was just impossible too see. Well god knows, how he does things Juana Bautista. He does know, well its even surprising me that I’m always thinking about Manuel Efe instead of Ruben. Even though his name is still in my heart. I don’t want to condemn myself anymore with that. I know that Ruben will be marrying Maria Delia. I am not going to stop this or interfere.” Juana Bautista ask, “yes thats true. So when are you going to give Manuel Efe your answer. When will we see?” Juana Valentina tells her, “very soon but for now I’m praying to sor juanas inez de la cruz. So she can iluminate me, so then I can take the appropriate decision.” Juana Bautista tells her, “well girl hope its done quickly. Well then you can organize the wedding with us. Then we can all get married on the 12th.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh soon I will be as organize as you all.”

Juana Calidad returns, and Juana Bautisa asks. “So how did it go?’ Juana Valentina tells her, “well with that glowing smile. The virgin heard my prayers, things went well for you right?” Juana Matilde tells them, “the nun has been very misterious. She hasn’t wanted to tell us nothing. Man all I want too do, is punch her for her to react.” Juana Bautista utters, “calm down Juana Matilde.” Juana Caldiad tells her, “soon I will be Juana Calidad Salguero de Fuentelafria.”

Over at the pink house, Dona Dona is cleaning up the table with Ophelia.” Manuel Efe arrives, “Manuel Efe has arrived.” Dona Dona tells him, “how are you nephew?” Manuel Efe tells her, “daaa it seems there was an important dinner. Which I wasn’t invited?” Dona Dona tells him, “the Fuentelafria came by to ask for the hand of Juana Calidad.” Manuel Efe ask, “so they came by here to ask you for her hand as well?” Dona Dona tells him, “hey they insisted.” Manuel Efe tells her, “aunt you have changed so much with the juanas. Not only do you stand them, now your like the subsitute mother.” Dona Dona tells him, “nephew don’t say stupid things.” Manuel Efe tells her, “listen if you are defeated well me no. My vengence is going well, I just don’t know how, I’m going to get them out of corozal. Well in regards of Juana Valentina aunt, my vengence is going extremely well. I have asked her to marry me, she will respond yes.” Dona Dona ask, “what?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes aunt and when I have her out of corazal. When I have her in my hands, there she’s going to pay every single one of those humilations. That she did towards me, and let me tell you there was a lot. Plus all of her sisters as well. Then you will see aunt. Yes then you will see a finished vengence.” Dona Dona asks, “you purposed marriage the oldest of the iligitimates.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes and why should that surprise you. You knew those were my plans.” Dona Dona tells him, “well what does suprise me is that the iligitimate oldest. Has even noticed you as a future husband.” Manuel Efe asks, “and why not let me tell you. She told me she was going to think about it. Its now just a formality, for she’s crazy for me.” Dona Dona is with Manuel Efe. “Now listen if she says yes, then let it be once and for all.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes to relax everyone.” Dona Dona tells him, “no nothing about tranquility. Well the thing is… Then Dona starts acting like Juana Matilde. Well the thing is, she’s going to be now related to a Cuadradro. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. It just shocks me, I’m just saying.” Manuel Efe simply looks twice at her.

Tere is walking home, from the grocery store. When a guy runs into her, the man in the white hat sees this. She yells, “boy don’t you see what your doing sonny? The man in the white hat, helps pick up her belongings. He touches her hand, umda oh thank you sir. You are so very kind. He taps his hat and walks away. Then Tere gets the shivers, oh man that man is so very handsome. But he’s as cold as Juana Manny.”

Calixto tells Dona that night, as they are getting ready for bed. “Well everything is going quie well. Dona I don’t know how to thank you, for what your doing for Juana Calidad and me.” Dona Dona tells him, “well I know how?” Calixto tells her, “fine then do me the favor make sure the older one leaves corozal.” Calixto tells her, “yes Dona she’s planning on leaving so just relax.” Dona Dona tells him, “or get her married.” Calixto utters, “married? Well with who, she doesn’t even have a boyfriend.” Dona Dona tells him, “officially no but in the name of my nephew. Manuel Efe Cuadradro, I would like to officially ask, for the hand of your oldest daughter.” Calixto is shocked, “Dona what wait repeat that again.” Dona Dona tells him, “to add your now becoming deaf. Yes in the name of my nephew. I am formally asking for her hand in marriage.” Calixto tells her, “but Dona ever since I can remember. You have been against, my oldest daughter Juana Valentina ever since she has arrived in corozal. Now you want her, to be a part of your family through the direct line of marriage.” Dona Dona tells him, “well at least the name Cuadradro cleans your iligitimate daughters name. I’m now leaving this curiosity Mr. Salguero.” Calixto utters, “yes the devil is indeed in corozal.”

Juana Valentina has now become Juana Calidad. “Why are you saying, that its best that I marry Manuel Efe Tere.” Tere is now in bed, for now she’s now sick with the cold. She tells her, “well I haven’t commented it too you. The thing is Todoelmundo, has asked me to marry him.” Juana Valentina tells her, “levitated up to the sky. Thank you lord, oh he made it so that all the marriages would arrive at the same time Tere. So when are you getting married?” Tere tells her, “listen Juana Valentina do me a favor and stop talking like you sister. Plus Juana Valentina, I don’t know about getting married Juana Valentina. I just don’t want too leave you alone daugher. I know you far too well, that you wouldn’t want to live with me and Todoelmundo.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh blessed are you Terezalsura. Stop thinking about yourself, think about you and your future. I am going to be happy and overjoyed, you and my sisters organized. Well maybe in the end, I will organize myself.” Tere tells herm, “oh my daughter I just hope that Manuel Efe. Is the man that’s going to take Ruben Salguero, out of your heart my love. But I’m going to give you your last advice Juana Valentina. Don’t marry for spite girl, your going to regret it for the rest of your life girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I would have felt spite if Ruben had rejected me but. The lord wanted us to be siblings. That is how he wanted it, we had an opportunity to be together on this earth. Maybe in the celistial glory, we will be able to be together.” Tere utters, “oh in the glory at least daughter.”

Ruben is in bed, when Calixto goes to see him. “My mother said what?” Calixto tells him, “just like I’m doing it. She asked formally the hand of Juana Valentina, for Manuel Efe.” Ruben utters, “man the devil is in corozal.” Calixto tells him, “well that is what I said. First she is repulsed by her, because she is my daughter. Now she’s willing to accept her, as a member of her family. I just don’t know.” Ruben tells him, “Juana Valentina can’t marry Manuel Efe.” Calixto tells him, “well yes she can marry him. Its just that there’s nothing stopping her. Well what’s more suprising is, is this change of attitude of your mother and Juana Valentina.” Ruben tells him, “but father it just can’t be. Manuel Efe isn’t the husband for her.” Calixto tells him, “well you can’t exaggerate either. Ruben the man is a good catch, he has his money. He has his lively hood, well apparently he does love her so. Well it would do be good, that I see all my five daughters married. Well the thing is that’s driving me, to lose my hair is that your mother. Well she’s always thinking like this, well is a big deal with now cleaning the iligitimacy with the originalty of a good one.” Dona Dona has come out of her room, and sits and listens to the conversation. Ruben tells her, “father if Juana Valentina is thinking about marrying Manuel Efe. It might be enough, if she finds out that my mother is in agreement with this. She might decide well to deny this. I know what she’s thinking, well how she feels regarding my mother. If Juana Valentina says yes, my mother says no. Vice-versa in the decisions, then fortunately Juana Valentina will be saved and won’t have to get married to Manuel Efe my cousin.”

Calixto tells him, “listen your talking as if. Getting married to Manuel Efe, is like getting married to the…” Ruben finishes, “the devil is that what you were going to say? Father its more worse than that.” Dona Dona utters, “man he’s stubborn.” Ruben tells him, “no no father Manuel Efe doesn’t deserve a woman like Juana Valentina.” Dona Dona utters, “but you do deserve her.” Ruben tells him, “I’m going to be sincere with you. I am going to try to talk to Juana Valentina. I am going to try to stop this marriage.” Dona Dona utters, “but your going to marry Maria Delia.” Ruben tells him, “it won’t be easy for me to meddle. When Juana Valentina realizes, that my mother is in full agreement. Manuel Efe is out of the plan.” Calixto tells him, “Ruben your talking in another dimension.” Ruben tells him, “but father Manuel Efe is trapping my… My step-sister to marry him, he can deny it but he went out with Yolanda Del Cabrales. They set up the trap, so then Juana Valentina would think. Well so then everyone would find out, that I had an intimate relationship with her with Yolanda.” Calixto tells him, “your trying to tell me that Manuel Efe allied herself with that senora? So he can damage your wedding to Maria Delia? No that can’t be.” Ruben tells him, “it wasn’t too damage my wedding to Maria Delia. But old man, just forget it.”

The next morning, the guys are visiting the pink house. They are all very concerned, Orlando tells them. “Now you all know, I became interested in Juana Bautista because she was such a serious girl. You all know that, when you all thought up all that with Manuel Efe. Knew you couldn’t count on her, because she would destory that plan of yours. I just don’t think she’s joking around, well like you say with her sisters. This is quite a serious matter man.” Mauricio asks, “now then what logical explination are you saying. Well in regards how the juanas are behaving.” Orlando tells him, “I have already told you. The only explination there is, is that its illogical.” Octavio tells them, “I want to marry Juana Manny. But I can’t marry a woman, that is five different women at the same time. I just can’t.” Mauricio tells them, “you have a point they couldn’t have gone crazy. I guess now were going to find out.” Juana Manny calls out, “hey scary frog.” Octavio tells her, “how are you feeling today my firecracker?” Juana Manny tells him, “oh I’m still pretty cold I might have given it to Terezalsura.” Octavio kisses her, and then Juana Manny tells him. “Hey the cold is gone, I’m not cold anymore.” Mauricio asks, “really?” Orlando tells her, “well that’s great then.” Octavio tells her, “hey my firecracker your not talking like one of your sisters. So that means your getting fixed.” Juana Manny then tells him, “oh its coming back. Oh I don’t know, I’m just saying that in corozal its pretty cold.” Octavio tells them, “it was all an illusion thinking that things were getting better.”

Dona Dona shows up, “its a surprise that all of you are not having a party.” Juana Manny utters, “ave maria purisima.” Dona Dona tells her, “sin pecado concebido. Are your sisters here?” Juana Manny tells her, “yes senora we are all here.” Dona Dona tells her, “I don’t care to talk to you all. Inform the oldest, I need to talk to her right now.” Juana Manny tells her, “bless saint antonia maria clarice. Your suppose to say, may her name be blessed.” Dona Dona asks, “isn’t that one the boxer?” Octavio tells her, “well the thing is… I should say is Dona Dona. She has quit boxing, to become just a aesthetics you know beauty.” Mauricio asks, “yes Dona Dona would you care to sit down. Here’s a chair for you.” Dona Dona ask, “what are you the owner of the house now?” Miguel tells Orlando, “Dona Dona here in this house. Man in this town, a lot of strange things are occuring. In fact the strangest things in the world.” Orlando tells him, “well that’s what everyone has been saying. Everything that occurs here in ilogicial.”

Juana Valentina is putting lotion on her legs. “Wait Dona Dona is here? So what does she want?” Juana Manny tells her, “she wants to talk to you.” Juana Valentina asks, “to talk to me about what?” Juana Manny tells her, “do you really think she would explain things too me? Oh saintly lord, not a another problem.” Juana Valentina asks, “are all the guys downstairs?” Juana Manny tells her, “yes all of them.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well then tell her she has to come up then. If she wants to talk, she has to come up here.”

Manuel Efe visits the salguero house the next day. “So is my aunt Dona going to be taking long?” Ruben tells him, “you saved me a trip to the hotel. Manuel Efe I need to talk to you cousin.” Manuel Efe tells him, “once again talking about your ex-boss. Man she left you completely obsessed.” Ruben tells him, “we are not going to talk about Yolanda Del Cabrales. We are going to discuss my sister Juana Valentina. You purposed marriage too her.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes I know that it hurt you. It must have hurt you so very much. Since you are in love with her, and you can’t deny it. That love between the two of you is impossible. We are talking about your sister.” Ruben tells him, “listen that supposed love is something that you invented.” Manuel Efe tells him, “fine then I believe you. Well then, why are you so jealous.” Ruben tells him, “its not jealousy its just that I am very worried about Juana Valentina. The same worry I have for all of my sisters. You aren’t going to make Juana Valentina happy.” Manuel Efe asks, “and why not? But why not? Listen for Juana Valentina I’m going to make a castle. Her my big bunny, that beautiful woman she will be my queen. Only her alone.” Ruben tells him, “you don’t love her. If you loved her, you wouldn’t have had to blackmail her. In supporting her, and the rest of my sisters. In exchange for a matrimony.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes its a purpose very decent. What occured it was badly interpreted by all.” Ruben tells him, “cousin one marries for love. One hopes, that a person one marries does it also for love. One marries because, one feels they can’t live. If that person isn’t with them. They love them so very much. One marries because, of that need. To continue breathing.” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh what phrases Rubencho yes what phrases. Listen is that why, your marrying Maria Delia?” Ruben angrily stares at him.

Over at the pink house Juana Valentina tells Dona Dona. “I swear too you I didn’t tell lies. There’s no point in doing so.” Dona Dona tells her, “you told me you weren’t in love. Now your engaged to my nephew.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen when I saw you that day. Manuel Efe too me was indifferent. The next thing I knew, I became interested in him. That is what occured.” Dona Dona tells her, “so that means you just fell like that. Its quite difficult too believe.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Dona Dona everything that deals with love is difficult to believe. Or you don’t know, listen I have yet to inform your nephew my answer.” Dona Dona asks, “and what are you going to tell my nephew.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I don’t know the answer is already written. Even though neither of us know it senora. Nothing we do will change it, so don’t waste your time.” Dona Dona tells her, “listen for your own good and that of everyone. Its best your decision is a negative one. You nobody, wants you here in corozal. If you don’t know already, Mr. Salguero was suppose to tell you that you had to go. But you advanced yourself, by telling him that you had planned on leaving. The faster you leave the better, well in regards to my nephew. Forget about him, don’t even dream about being his wife. Manuel Efe is a Cuadradro, while your name isn’t even yours. Neither his parents or me, would authorize that matrimony. Never would we permit an iligitimate like yourself. Is a part of our family, regarding my nephew umda. Forget about the interest of love from him. He prefers european women, french girls, italian girl. European girls is what my newphew likes while you…” Juana Valentina tells her, “wait a minute the one that has everything is me. Its my decision if I want, or don’t want to marry your nephew. Now you better do me a favour respect me. Nothing that you do, or say will affect me do you hear me. Dona Dona Cuadradro, who knows maybe we will have the same last name. What do you think of that?” Dona Dona tells her, “don’t have illusions. You might hear from Mr. Salguero say, that I fully agree that Manuel Efe marries you. Well Mr. Salguero, takes himself his own way. Never will a Cuadradro, marry a Echenique.” Then she storms out of the room. Outside she utters, “man if I have been mistaken well with Ruben. I’ve really put my foot it in up to my neck.”

Juana Matilde is praying, “oh heavens hold souls in purgatory.” Dona Dona tells her, “soon they will have their pardon.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes that is what your suppose to say.” Dona Dona looks at everyone then leaves the house. The house is left in an up roar, everyone talks all at once. “Hey what did she talk to Juana Valentina about?” Juana Valentina full of spite comes downstairs, “now then all of you are getting married on the 12th. Well then, I will also be the fifth for I am marrying Manuel Efe.”

Back at the salguero house, Calixto is talking with Ruben. “Listen if Juana Valentina wants to marry. Well we can’t stop her, its her decision. Well then she can marry him then she’s in full liberty too do so.” Ruben asks, “but father why Manuel Efe?” Calixto tells him, “listen Ruben you are…” Dona Dona returns home singing. “Son Mr. Salguero.” Calixto utters, “Dona?” Dona Dona tells him, “Mr. Salguero I need to tell you a few words.” Then she sings too her room, Calixto utters. “Everytime your mother sings, or she wants to tell me something. I don’t like it one single bit. I’ll go see what she wants.” Ruben goes to his room.

Calixto goes to see Dona in her room. “Dona what is it that you want to tell me?” Dona Dona tells him, “what’s going on is this. I am pulling back, what I told you last night. Never ever, will I permit my nephew. To marry your iligitimate daughter.” Calixto yells out, “but you yourself asked me last night on behalf of Manuel Efe.” Dona Dona tells him, “I must have been drunk. That is all Mr. Salguero.” Calixto tells her, “this is all because of the devil.” Dona Dona asks, “what devil are you talking about?” Calixto tells him, “the main guy the one with horns and tail. Listen one day, you tell me something, the next day you change your mind. Just like what occured with Carmichael Fuentelafria. Even the personality switch of my daughters. That is what I’m talking about. Man corazal has become hell.” He takes off and Dona Dona utters, “yes now Mr. Salguero has gone crazy.”

Over at the dolorsa, Juana Calidad is singing very badly on stage. The guys join her, but look away at the spectacle. The girls smile and cheer her on.

Back at the pink house, Tere is crying. “Please tell me what’s going on Todoelmundo?” Todoelmundo tells him, “you already know and don’t like me talking about it.” Tere tells him, “oh I’m so very nervous. The juanas are changing personalities, me and Juana Manny are cold. Even though outside the temperature continues to rise. You are forgetting everything.” Todoelmundo gives her a hug and a kiss. “Just relax relax.” Tere tells him, “todoelmundo my cold has gone away. Oh shoot it came back, and I’m trembling once again.” Todoelmundo tells her, “here drink this.”

Back at the dolorosa, the song is over. People clap too be polite. Juana Calidad tells them, “well I don’t know I’m just saying. Yes now I do understand you, Juana Matilde. Well singing is like, well how can I say this. Its quite chevede.” Juana Matilde angrily tells her, “listen Juana Calidad you have ruined that song.” Juana Manny tells them, “well you know what I think that we are a very good united group. Well I really think we are, partying too much and forgetting to pray.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes that is so true.” Juana Manny tells them, “yes we should pray right now of our good intentions.” Octavio yells out, “what good intentions enough. Juana Manny stop acting like the nun. Your not the nun, well not even the nun is the nun. Enough the pot has now exploded.”

Back at the pink house, Todoelmundo gives Tere another hot coffee. “You know I don’t think, that the european fellow is right for Juana Valentina.” Tere tells him, “listen that is her decision todoelmundo but if she does marry him. Well I will marry you.” Todoelmundo excitedly ask, “so does that mean you have decided to marry me?” Tere tells him, “yes.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well that is the best news I’ve had in my entire life Terezalsura. But man it can’t be using Juana Valentina.” Tere tells him, “I am going to be sincere Todoelmundo. Yes for me I really do like to be your wife. I love what you have to say, when were having a meal. Breakfast, plus when we go to bed.” They hug and she’s warm again. He scares her, when he screams. “I remember, I remember.” Tere tells him, “now what did you remember? Your getting as bad as the juanas. What is your personality changing as well?” Todoelmundo tells him, “no Tere I remembered 1988 the priest. The children, the matrimony everything I love you so very much Terezalsura.” He kisses her and runs out of the house.

At the dolorosa everyone is fighting, the couples and the customers. The man in the white hat arrives and watches everyone. Poncho tells them, “things aren’t going to end well Juana Valentina. Someone has too do something.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes I know that.”

Todoelmundo has run over to Judge’s house. Geremias Guerra’s goes to the door, and then Margarita Cruz. Margarita Cruz asks, “who could it be?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “lets see.” Todoelmundo runs in, “listen in 1988 there was an earthquake. There was ice and snow. The father Julio decided to marry every single pair that loved one another. He would give them his blessing. They didn’t have to go to marriage counseling, they didn’t have to pay. No paperwork needed, they didn’t even have to dress up that day. They were all married in the plaza, and there was a beautiful sunshine. There was a 1 254 pairs, plus in october 1 254 babies were born.” Margarita Cruz simply smiles and yells out, “you remembered Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells them, “yes it was like in one second a light shone in my head.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “but something so very important doesn’t show up in the records. Listen so many marriages like that, one doesn’t forget that.” Todoelmundo tells them, “it seems that someone doesn’t want nobody to find out.”

Juana Valentina puts a fight to a stop, she screams. “Girls its time we go home. I don’t want this fight to end badly.” Manuel Efe show up and she goes and hugs him. “Oh my Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “how’s my beautiful doll doing? Now where is that music, its coming from my heart. Drinks for everyone.” Orlando utters, “oh mr. playboy.” All the girls have now surrounded him. Miguel tells the guys, “something strange is going on.” Mauricio yells out, “Poncho enough nothing from me. I’ll have nothing from Manuel Efe.” Miguel tells him, “hey neither do I nothing from Manuel Efe Cuadradro.” Octavio tells him, “yeah the same goes from me no rum.” Orlando tells him, “the same goes for me now Juana Bautista come over here with me. I need to talk too you alone my love. We are going to do this tomorrow ok. See you then bye.” Juana Bautista tells him, “fine then bye.” Miguel gets Juana Matilde, “get over here we have to talk alone. We are also going to do it tomorrow heard me bye.” Juana Matilde tells him, “fine then go quickly.” Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “now your going to pay me some attention. Hey we need to explain a few things alone.” Octavio tells Juana Manny, “by firecracker tomorrow I’m going to pick you up at the beauty salon.” We have so much to clear up my firecracker.” Then he kisses her, and she responds like Juana Calidad grabbing him and kissing him. Leaving him breathless. Juana Manny tells him, “hey scary frog my cold is gone.” Poncho sees her taking off her sweater, “hey Juana Manny your cold is gone well tell me the formula I’m going crazy here.” Then she screams, and the earthquake shakes the bar. Everyone runs out of the dolorosa. The girls left are grabbing Manuel Efe, but he’s screaming. “Please let me get out of here.”

Calixto is with Judge Geremias Guerra. “In 1 254 kids, father julio. without knowing it. Created a huge explosion in population demographic.” Todoelmundo tells them, “well Terezalsura stopped being cold. Well when she felt, the presense of love. Plus I remembered everything, when I felt love turn my skin into goosebumps.” Calixto tells them, “it seems there’s something in common with well against the malignant forces. Well it could be love.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well I fully agree with my comparde.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “I am saying yes we must do something.” Calixto tells them, “listen we have to do it discret for nobody is going to believe us.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “and yes where are we going to get all 1 254 people that want to get married.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “well in 1988 people obey the priest. Well considering how conventional the earth is today. There’s no priest that powerful, apart from his holyness pope. But the pope doesn’t have the time to come to corozal.” Calixto tells them, “we must think of something. Love doesn’t have to mean necessarily matrimony. Love is love, its a feeling that makes mountain moves. Florish the deserts, well taking one’s hand is an act of love. Kiss a child is an act of love. You know I don’t think we need, 1 254 to marry to have love.” Margarita Cruz asks, “well then what do you recomend?” Calixto tells them, “how about a big act of love. Something quite popular, we have to think of a pretext. If the people knew exactly, what we were doing. That we are trying to eliminate the demon. They are going to laugh in our faces.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “listen why don’t we do it at three. With the march of the ladies of the religious society.” Calixto tells her, “exactly for the march of the rosario is a march to show love towards god.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “I just hope that the devil doesn’t find out what we’re doing.” Then the earthquake hits, thunder and lighting is heard. Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “the devil has found us out Margarita.” The man in the white hat blows very hard. Moving everything all over the place.

The next morning, Todoelmundo gets up. “First I’m going to the Terezalsura at the pink house. Then I do the route of the market, well then towards the stadium. Its about 80 houses, yes Don Calixto its a big act of love. He tries starting his motor-cycle, hey come on motor-cycle. Your always a firecracker to starts now come on. The man in the white hat tries to stop him. Hey don’t fail me now, when I did you most of all. It has gas, come on motorcycle I need you really badly today. Umda fine then if you don’t want to help me. Then that’s it, umda. Hey kids did you hear, there’s a march of love. Come on I’ll inform everyone, hi Don Silvina. You who have six kids, do you know about the march of love?”

Judge Geremias Guerra and Calixto are walking and talking. Judge Germias Guerra asks, “now then comparde how are we going to do this preparation.” Calixto tells him, “don’t make it sound like a battle comparde. We are going to go ahead, you and I. Todoelmundo and Margarita Cruz. We are going to get the ball rolling, we have to do it word by mouth. Its the best thing that exists till now.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “I just hope this is effective.” The man in the white hat, points to the ground and the two are stuck. Calixto tells him, “we have to know that our asumptions are correct.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “hey why aren’t we advancing?” Calixto yells out, “relax relax enough we both know where this is coming from.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “yes I also know comparde.” Calixto yells out, “hi Ignacio Alicia. You who have been married for 36 years. Do you know about the march of love?”

Manuel Efe tells Juana Valentina. “Yes I’ve heard about the march of love. That’s something that people just invent. People of the tropics, do that so they won’t have too work. Just to waste time, just like those pagents.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I want too go with you Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells him, “there’s sugar donkey etc. Hey what did you say?” Juana Valentina tells him, “umda I want to go with you.” Manuel Efe ask, “to the march of love.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes the march of love daaa. Yes let me tell you, how smart that fellow is to invent such a thing. The march of love, we are going to go together my rabbit.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes its quite logical. If I’m going to be your woman, we should go together.” Manuel Efe ask, “what are you trying to say?” Juana Valentina tells him, “I am going to marry you.” Manuel Efe tells her, “you don’t know what this moment means too me. You just can’t image it.” Then he kisses her. Its the best moment, the happiest of my love. Your not pulling my leg right?” Juana Valentina tells him, “no I don’t play those bad jokes. Considering this is so very serious.” Manuel Efe asks, “and when is that blessed day?” Juana Valentina tells him, “on the 12th around lunchtime. That date and time, I will be your wife.”

Maria Delia shows up, at the pink house with Ruben. “Oh my I feel so bad, for before I used to visit them so very often. Lately with so many things, that I’ve had too do. I have them quite abandoned oh no.” Manuel Efe leaves the house, “daaa finally it happened. Now here comes the sweet delicious vengence. You don’t know, what’s waiting for you Juana Valentina Echenque. You just can’t image it, Rubencho and Maria Delia. Daaa what a great pleasure to see you two. At such a procise moment, Maria Delia I want you to be my godmother. Rubencho you are too be my godfather.” Ruben asks, “of what?” Manuel Efe tells them, “of what I am going to marry Juana Valentina next month on the 12th. With the rest of the juanas, well how is your eye. Well say something.” Ruben is in shock, Maria Delia goes to him and gives him a hug. “Oh Manuel Efe congratulations.”

Margarita Cruz goes to the salguero house. She talks to Dona, “now then the march of love. Is at the same time as the march of the rosarios, for the ladies of religious society.” Dona Dona asks, “what the devil is the march of love?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “it will be at three on friday. We would like it if you accompanied us.” Dona Dona tells her, “oh Margarita I pray in church or in my room. When I do it I don’t like to exhibit myself.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “it has nothing too do with showing off Dona. We are just trying to recover an old tradition. Its said, that years ago the ladies of corozal. They would take their rosarios, to pray in the plaza. Plus go around the priniciples ares of town.” Dona Dona tells her, “apparently they don’t have nothing important to do.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “I’m listening to you and don’t believe it. Your not the same Dona Cuadradro, that was educated with the fundamental catholic upbringing. Yes its true we were young girls. But I have it very clear, when we would play at your house. Your grandmother always had her gold rosario of monteseno. She would repeat, those mysterious religiously. You prayed along with her girl.” Dona Dona smiles and tells her, “oh those were the days. But those were different times Margarita. Now I am not for those things. I am almost at the doors, of Ruben Calixto’s wedding.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “but it would be a great example for the youth of today. Your always saying, you worry about the morality of corozal. Well it might be a great opportunity to do so.” Then the earth begins to shake again. Dona Dona uttes, “man when will this trembling stop already. Margarita I have to confess something, I don’t have the gold rosario of monteso that my grandmother gave me. I pawned it.”

Margarita Cruz tells her, “but you loved that rosario Dona.” Dona Dona tells her, “its the best live memory of have of my grandmother. But yes I pawned it.” Margarita Cruz ask, “was the situation that bad?” Dona Dona tells her, “it was a few months ago it was when everything was finally passing. I didn’t do it for the money, but it was the principle that I personally had to fulfill.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “I just don’t understand?” Dona Dona tells her, “I can tell you because this is important too you. You must promise me you will never tell anybody.” Margarita Cruz asks, “why all the mystery?” Dona Dona tells her, “well you were the one. That told me that the daughters of my husband. Were supporting my house, during those anguished days. Well I just couldn’t keep relaxed after this Margarita Cruz.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “so that means you pawn it out of generosity?” Dona Dona tells her, “I know when too be thankful.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “so you were the reason they would mysteriously find money. At the pink house, all the juanas were quite intrigued.” Dona Dona tells her, “I just hope I don’t regret confinding in you Margarita Cruz. Well then I’ll see, if we can get some juice. Oh man its getting pretty hot, oh girl Ophelia.” She leaves and Margarita Cruz utters, “your still the same Dona Cuadradro that I knew. You pretend to be hard on the outside, but on the inside you are the same girl that studied with me.”

Over at the pink house, Ruben is really depressed. Maria Delia sits with Juana Valentina. “Care for a sweet french almond, now then lets talk about the dress. I suggest you get it made Juana Valentina. I spend days going through, every single one of these shops. I didn’t like a single model that I liked. Senora Gloria is a great dress maker. Just say how you like the dress. She makes it like she has read your mind girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh my god bless you Maria Delia. Thank you for your great suggestions. Well I just think, that getting married is quite costly.” Maria Delia asks, “well why are you talking like this like Juana Calidad.” Ruben tells her, “Maria Delia later I will explain. Well then since my sisters, haven’t returned we are leaving. Sarcastically he tells her, Juana Valentina I wish you so much happiness with my cousin. Your going to know, so much about europe.” Maria Delia tells her, “we’re going to be the godfather’s of the wedding. We hope you and Manuel Efe decided this.” Ruben tells her, “oh yes and I hope that you have children soon. I’m just dying to have nieces and nephews.” He kisses Maria Delia, and Juana Valentina tells him. “Thank you so very much for your kind wishes Ruben. I too wish you the same thing. I hope you build a nice home, for the glory of the lord.” They stare at one another before he takes off.

Over at the art studio, Juana Bautista tells Orlando. “A march of love, doesn’t it sound very chevede. Hey come over here, who’s idea was that walk anyways.” Orlando tells her, “well I don’t know but apparently its your father, Judge Geremias Guerra, and Todoelmundo. They are a part of the organizers.” Juana Bautista ask, “and what do you have to say about this? Well I think I don’t know, but it sounds delicious. We are going together.” Orlando tells her, “yes my love thats why I’m here to invite you.” Then they hear lighting, “what was that? Listen boy if it starts raining, nobody is going to go to that march of love.”

Over at the dolorosa, Calixto shows up. Poncho tells him, “hi Don Calixto what a rain storm.” Calixto tells him, “first its a blazing heat then its the rain that drowns one. Then suddenly it starts to rain. Well if it wasn’t what I know, one would say there’s no explination.” Poncho tells him, “yes and there’s no explination why I am still very cold. Its just unjust.” Calixto tells him, “hey have a rum and give me one as well.” Poncho tells him, “rum, hot chocolate, hot chicken stew. I get absolutely nothing, this coldness will never go away. I’m just saying, this is an act of the devil Calixto.” Calixto tells him, “yes you have said it.” The man in the white hat, continues to destroy the area with the wind and rain.

Over at the beauty salon. Octavio and Juana Manny are together. “So when are you going to have a grand opening for the salon?” Juana Manny tells him, “on monday that’s why I’m cleaning up here. Everything is almost ready, how about helping me broom ok.” Octavio tells him, “I perfered it when you asked me to do everything but hits.” Juana Manny asks, “what is that noise?” Octavio tells her, “it seems to me its a windstorm.” Juana Manny tells him, “a windstorm nobody is going to go to that love march.”

Over at the church Juana Matilde tells Miguel. “You know what I think, that’s a sin.” Miguel asks, “what is a sin Juana Matilde its that march of love.” Juana Matilde tells him, “I just think it has a name of libertene well Miguel no.” Miguel tells her, “but your father is one of the organizers with that I’m telling you everything.” Juana Matilde tells him, “fine us two will go Miguel. Well may god forgive me, if I’m doing this badly.” Miguel tells him, “oh saint antonia clarice should be so very happy as I am.” Juana Matilde tells him, “your suppose to say sor juana inez de la cruz. Or saint antonia maria clarice.” Miguel kisses her cheek, “thank you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “don’t give me kisses Miguel. Especially now that were at church.” The church door slams shut. She gets on her knees, “please saint astokio bendita. Miguel we have been locked up here.”

The man in the white hat, is sitting down when Mauricio and Juana Calidad come running by. Juana Calidad tells him, “instead of a march it should have been a marathon.” Mauricio tells her, “not everyone is physically fit my love.” Juana Calidad tells him, “you mean we have it Mauricio. Yes you really do need to do more exercising.” Mauricio asks, “do me a favour Cadi. Tell me yes or no, we are going to that march. Or else I’m going to fall down here, in sheer exhuastion.” Juana Calidad tells him, “man your lazy no fregue. Fine then we can go to that march of love. I’m warning you of something, we are going to walk it completely. Now come on, lets go go go. One two three.” Mauricio falls in a hole and yells out, “oh mother…” Juana Calidad utters, “Mauricio you better not be playing around. Or else I’m going to hit you in the mouth. Mauricio Mauricio.”

Over at the pink house, Todoelmundo is talking too them both. Tere tells him, “its not that original?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I don’t know why I’m going to deny it. Plus I think, that the planets are in correct alignment. For a favorable event such as this. Yes of course Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo holds Tere’s hand, “now I want to hear a response coming from you.” Tere tells him, “yes Todoelmundo alright. I am going. I just hope that it gets rid of this blasted cold that I have.” Todoelmundo tells her, “the idea is that it removes everything. He then kisses her, oh I almost forgot. Now then I found this, at the front door. Its a bit wet and the address is terribly written.” Juana Valentina tells them, “I get a feeling that this letter has travelled many oceans and locations. Before coming to this house. Hey its says Terezalsura, just look at it.” Tere opens it and gets very excited, “its from my mexican sailor. Look look its from my mexican sailor Juana Valentina.” Todoelmundo becomes very sad upon hearing this.

The man in the white hat looks around the plaza. Everyone is wearing jackets and long sweaters. By the church, the clouds move all over the place.

Over at the dolorosa the guys are talking. Todoelmundo sadly enters and sits down. They ask, “hey todoelmundo what’s up?” Mauricio asks, “now tell me how goes the march of love?” Todoelmundo tells them, “it hasn’t been easy all obstacles apparently show up. So did the juanas decide to go?” They utter, “yes.” Todoelmundo tells them, “Juana Valentina also decided to go. Regarding Terezalsura I just don’t know. First she said she was going, now she said she wasn’t. Then she said she wasn’t going.”

Over at the pink house, the girls are all together. Tere is overjoyed at seeing her long awaited letter. Juana Bautista tells her, “so we heard your going to marry Manuel Efe. Is it definate?” Juana Valentina tells her, “definantely afirmative. In fact I have already told Manuel Efe, the yes and everything. So decisively I have already told Ruben and Maria Delia.” Juana Calidad goes over too her, “oh daaa man let me give you a big hug and a hearty congratulations. I feel like I have won the boxing champion of the world.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well I feel like well I don’t know. I am very happy, that well we are all going to get married together. Man its quite chevede.”Juana Bautista tells them, “well thaks to sor Juana Ines de la cruz. To wish everyone a very happy union.” Juana Manny tells them, “its just incredible that you are going to get married to Manuel Efe. To think we couldn’t stand him, in fact destiny will never stop surprising us.” Tere tells them, “come on Juana Bautista how about reading my cards. I just want to know what’s going to happen with my mexican sailor. Can you just image all of us, getting married at the same time.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey wait one minute Terezalsura what are you thinking or no. What mexican sailor, you have too think quite clearly about this Tere. You were going to marry Todoelmundo. Yes right now, you must be very impacted receiving that long awaited letter. That finally arrived at this late period of your life girl. But no sir, you have too think clearly. This doesn’t mean, your in love or anything else.”

Tere smiles and tells them, “listen I’m just thinking of all the moments I spent with that mexican sailor. Well I don’t know, I see me on a boat with him. Seeing the sun drowing into the sea, when it becomes darker.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh Terezalsura I’ve never heard you talk this way before. It seems they hit your head. Do you want me to hit you again, so you can be like you were.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well the thing is I don’t know. I’m just saying seriously, that you can’t do this too Todoelmundo. Well I don’t know, but I’m just saying.” Tere tells them, “well the thing is I don’t know what’s happening with me. Todoelmundo is becoming really annoying. I don’t like him anymore. Plus I don’t want to go too that blasted march of love.” Juana Matilde tells her, “no senora your going to go. Your going how ever your going. The march of love, was created by Todoelmundo. Girl that’s a low blow for todoelmundo. Yes so do me this favor.” Juana Bautista tells her, “give this sacrifice to the lord.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Tere stop being a wet blanket. I am shocked with you, look all of us are going. Its going to be quite chevede, yes we’re all going right? Come on girl lets go.” Tere tells her, “fine then I’ll go but only for you guys nobody else.”

Over at the salguero house, Calixto is overjoyed. “Don’t you see what this signifies Ruben.” Ruben tells him, “yes Juana Valentina is going to marry my cousin.” Calixto tells him, “no she’s not leaving corozal. I want to get on my knees, to thank the heavens. Well Manuel Efe isn’t the best son in law, I would have chosen. She chose it, and she wanted it this way. Well the issue is your mother.” Ruben asks, “my mother? But didn’t she already ask her hand for my cousin.” Calixto tells him, “well that was in the past. She has changed her mind. I’m telling you the devil has his hands in all of this.” Ruben asks, “wait a minute did you tell Juana Valentina. That my mother was against this.” Calixto tells him, “no I didn’t have the chance.” Ruben asks, “so did you talk to Manuel Efe?” Calixto tells him, “no.”

Manuel Efe arrives, “Manuel Efe has arrived well with a dress.” Calixto shakes his hand, “hey I just heard the news with you and Juana Valentina. I like it very much.” Manuel Efe tells him, “thanks uncle I mean father in law.” Calixto tells him, “the problem is your aunt.” Dona Dona shows up, “hi nephew of what?” Manuel Efe tells her, “now then first things first. This is the dress aunt, I found for the wedding of Ruben. Truth is I found it in corozal, I talked to the owner. He says, if you don’t like it you can go back and chose another. Another thing If it needs fixing, well you can do it right here in corozal. Not in barranquilla with those italian men.” Dona Dona tells him, “I have to accept that yes this is a lovely dress.” Calixto grabs him, “now then nephew tell her after the dress.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes yes aunt. Large or small words, I am getting married to Juana Valentina Echeinque.” Dona Dona glances at a still, very annoyed and angry Ruben. Dona Dona tells them, “I am tired and exhausted. I feel like I feel. She sits down, I am tired of fighting always in the end come out loosing. You are hurting me so very much nephew, but you know what do what ever you want. But all I am asking is, take her away from corozal.” Dona Dona asks, “and when are you getting married.” Manuel Efe tells her, “on the 12th just like the rest of the juanas.” Dona Dona asks, “can you stop this?” Manuel Efe tells her, “not anymore.” Dona Dona tells him, “fine marry that iligitimate girl. Don’t count on my blessing.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey Rubencho Rubencho you are going to be the godfather of the wedding. Just like I asked, and you said you would do it. Don’t you worry, I am going to take good care of your sister.”

Todoelmundo runs in, “Don Calixto Don Calixto.” Calixto asks, “what’s going on now?” Todoelmundo tells him, “on the same day of the march of love. Well Julio Iglesias will be perfoming, in the main principal plaza.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “plus the secretary of arts they are going to quickly go today. To start fixing up the plaza for such an event.” Calixto tells them, “we must go to the mayor.” Todoelmundo tells him, “more so Don Calixto. In all of the calenders, there’s no mention of friday. Just see, they totally skip fridays. See monday tuesday wednesday thursday saturday sunday. Friday was the day of the march of love.” Then the earth begins to shake, Manuel Efe yells out. “Daaa its trembling once more.” Ruben goes over and hugs his mother.” Calixto tells them, “forget that they contracted Julio Iglesias. They want to fix the streeets. No this simply can’t be.” Dona Dona tells them, “dear saint Mr. Salguero. What are you trying to tell us?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “the devil doesn’t stay still comparde.” A sheet blows inside the house. Manuel Efe utters, “daaa Don Calixto a piece of paper has entered the house and there’s something on it.” Calixto reads it: “When things go badly, or when you hear things go bad. When your road is fresh, all you have to do is climb those moutains. When you have less too see, or lots too pay. Instead smile instead of crying, when the pain overtakes you. When you can’t suffer anymore, you should rest but no. Don’t stop resisting, behind every doubt. Behind every shadow, one must see the triumph instead of the failures that you feared. Don’t doubt your ignorance, the good might be so very close than you thought. You are playing at a distance, fight for everything. Before you have to suffer, when everything is worse. One must continue insisting.” Todoelmundo tells them, “the one that wrote that is kipling.” Ruben and Calixto utter, “what?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “hey that sounds like your daughters.” Calixto tells them, “listen that devil could be smarter than me. But you know what, I’m smarter and older.” Enough then forget it, all of you outside.”

(Rudyard Kipling was a well known writer. He was born Joseph Rudyard Kipling december 30, 1865 in Bombay India. He was also a poet, and journalist.)

Todoelmundo is ready to leave, when he’s stopped by Judge Geremias Guerra. Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “he means the whole world has to come outside now.” Calixto tells him, “you understood me well. You go get Maria Delia. You go and get Juana Valentina and the girls.” Manuel Efe tells him, “you know what uncle no thanks. Calixto grabs him by the ear, ouch my ears.” Calixto pushes him out the door, “now you go get the guys. We are going to do this march today. Now dear go and put on your walking shoes. Dear what are you waiting for?” Dona Dona simply glances at him. Calixto tells the judge, “listen inform everyone that the march that was suppose to be on friday. Has been changed to right now. Now go ahead comparde. Dear come on go, change your shoes.”

Todoelmundo heads to the dolorosa. Octavio tells him, “hey wasn’t that march of love on friday?” Todoelmundo tells them, “we can’t do it on friday for various reason. They’re is no fridays this month.” The guys start complaining, Todoelmundo tells them, “hey don’t believe me just check your calenders.” Poncho gets very annoyed, “dad how about that calender over there.” Todoelmundo tells them, “a lot of strange things are happening here.” Poncho tells them, “there’s no fridays I ate the friday.” Todoelmundo tells him, “see check it out.” Poncho utters, “wednesday thursday wait where’s friday. What happened?” The guys look at the calender, “oh man your right no fridays.” Poncho tells him, “just great the dolorosa is screwed.” Mauricio asks, “why?” Poncho tells him, “on fridays that’s the days we start charging people’s their tabs. Damn were not going to open, so were not getting paid.” Todoelmundo tells him, “enough of that talk. First things first, all of you go and advise the girls. I have to go to another location to inform the people.” Mauricio tells him, “sure.” Miguel asks, “would you like us to take charge of Terezalsura?” Todoelmundo tells him, “I’ll take charge of her well even though. Terezalsura has other interest.” Then all the guys head out.

Octavio arrives at the pink house and picks up Juana Manny. Juana Manny forgets her sign and goes back inside. Mauricio enters and picks up Juana Calidad. Orlando is next and picks up Juana Bautista. Juana Manny and Octavio, then take off to the plaza. Miguel runs in and picks up Juana Matilde. Orlando and Juana Bautista take off. Manuel Efe arrives, checks his car then enters the house. “Where is my bunny rabbit?” Miguel tries to kiss Juana Matilde, she simply pushes him aside. In the end they both leave together.

Inside Manuel Efe tells Juana Valentina, “you know these earthquakes. Its just the earth is moving around, the land still hasn’t stabalized in this territory. Well not because, of well you know who. Well like my uncle Calixto says its the devil.” Juana Valentina hits him he utters, “daaa.” Tere continues staring at her letter. Juana Valentina ask, “and why has the date been changed?” Manuel Efe tells her, “friday’s don’t show up on any calenders. Julio Iglesias will be performing in the plaza. They are closing the streets to fix it.” Tere uttes, “Julio Iglesias in corozal. Oh man its a miracle, not signs from the devil.” Juana Valentina hits him he howl in pain. “Well then if Don Calixto, says its important. Well then lets go then, now come on Tere.” Tere tells her, “Juana Valentina I am not going. Please understand me, hey one minute Juana Valentina. Hey just see, what the mexican sailor sent me. Its just strange that the moment without thinking. Well it just shows up, what if he does and I’m not here. So no, I’m not going.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey I don’t know I’m just saying. You shouldn’t be doing this too Todoelmundo. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying.” In the end Manuel Efe leaves with Juana Valentina. “Hey you have something in your eyes.” Then he kisses her, she utters. “This shocks me.” He picks her up, and puts her in his car. “Daaa.” Todoelmundo is sad, when Tere doesn’t want to go with him. But in the end Tere changes her mind. Then all go to the march.

At the march Calixto tells Judge Geremias Guerra. “Man were fighting with everything we got comparde. Hopefully this turns out well.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “yes and love triumphs comparde.” Maria Delia shows up with Ruben. Maria Delia greets Dona Dona. Then Juana Valentina and Ruben’s eyes lock. She looks away, Manuel Efe kisses her hand. The man in the white hat watches them. Dona Dona tells Calixto, “I am with you Mr. Salguero?” Calixto tells her, “thank you Dona. He kisses her hand, and away they go. I am going to begin the march of love.” Lighting hits a tree, the group scream. Calixto yells out, “we are not going to fall back with what ever occurs. We will show him, that love conquers all. Everyone grab each other’s hand. The pairs glasp hands, and they all look around. Hurry everyone hold hands, lets go now.” Manuel Efe sees the man in the white hat, he utters. “Daaa.” Juana Valentina tells him, “you know something maybe Todoelmundo is correct about these things. Come on these things, that occuring are signs of the demon now come on lets go.” Manuel Efe utters, “who?” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh come on already I am shocked.” The band starts up, and they begin to march. “Don’t stop what ever happenes.” The man in the white hat, puts a wall of fire between them. Tere yells out. “That’s the man that made me cold.” Calixto yells out, “no fear come on lets go now. Love conquers all, come on lets go.” Dona Dona tells him, “Calixto I can’t go on. I am very thirsty.” Calixto asks, “anybody have water. What do you mean there’s no more water.” Ruben tells him, “all the bottles of water are gone. Look they have vanished, all the taps no water comes out.” Calixto yells out, “is there no water juice anything.”

Juana Bautisa tells Orlando, “I’m staring to get scared. May sor juana inez de la cruz protect us.” Orlando tells him, “my love relax everything will pass.” They kiss, and she tells them. “His kiss tasted like drinking juice of tammageno. I’m not thirsty anymore.” Orlando tells them, “everyone kiss your girlfriends.” Calixto yells out, “everyone kiss someone. Dona I’m going to kiss you.” Dona Dona tells him, “I’m not going to kiss you in front of all these people. In the end he kisses her cheek. She utters, “its like apple cider remember when we were dating.” Calixto yells out, “everyone kiss someone. Aunts, uncles, parents, brothers, sisters.” The gang kiss their pairs, Maria Delia kisses Ruben. Juana Valentin sees this, and returns Manuel Efe’s kiss. Tere gets kisses by Todoelmundo and Poncho. Then the man in the whte hat slowly disappears. Calixto yells out, “get the hell out of here. We have won, we have won. Juana Matilde sing sing sing.” Juana Matilde tells him, “no I don’t want too I’m scared.” Calixto screams, “sing sing.”

Then Juana Matilde sings a song. Everyone begins joining in, and they all stand by the church. The girls now are all hugging one another. The man in the white hat continues, and in the end he’s gone. Calixto yells out, “he’s gone gone gone.” All the girls are now back too normal.

Juana Calidad tellls them, “thank you so vey much sor juana inez de la cruz. Saint astokio bendita, saint maria antonia clarice.” Mauricio stares at her happily and tells her, “Juana Calidad my Juana Calidad is the same as before. My dear heart nun.” Juana Manny tells her, “enough with the sermons you nun. Oh when are you going to change?” Octavio looks at her and happily tells Juana Manny, “don’t you ever neither do you my firecracker. Oh I’m so happy, that you have been re-lit.”

Juana Bautista tells Orlando, “it seems every personality that was apart from their senses. Well have all gotten back together once more. Even though on certain days, are astrological signs might coincide we might change. The astro in the end have the last word.” Orlando tells her, “its logic Juana Bautista pure logic. You are correct in everything my life. He kisses her, yes you are correct on everything my love.” He then hugs her once more.

Juana Valentina tells Manuel Efe, “this is so marvelous. Oh dear lord thank you so very much.” Manuel Efe continues to kiss her hand. It feels like a special energy went through my body. Didn’t it feel that way for you?” Manuel Efe utters, “yes yes yes.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes once again I can breathe. Once again I am myself once more.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes I feel the same energy. Oh what beautiful hands.” Juana Valentina pulls away from him, “do forgive me alright bye.” Manuel Efe sadly watches her leave.

Juana Matilde tells Miguel, “you know something. Well I don’t know, I’m just saying. All this is like so true, well I don’t know I’m just saying.” Miguel happily tells them, “there is my Juana Matilde once again as flighty and indecisive as ever.”

Tere tells Todoelmundo, “I’m not cold anymore. I’m hot and I do love you so very much. I don’t know why, I put so much balls on that letter. From the mexican sailor.” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes that is what I wanted to hear Terezalsura. Don Calixto I think we did it.”

Calixto tells the judge. “We did it didn’t we judge. Now come back here Dona.” Dona Dona simply goes home. Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “this has been the most difficult of cases in my career. As a municipality judge. I really think we need a congratulative drink.” Calixto smiles when he sees his girls hugging one another. Ruben pulls away from Maria Delia and watches Juana Valentina.

Juana Valentina tells Juana Bautista, “you know what saddens me about all of this. Is that love does conquer all.” I am no longer in love with Manuel Efe. Including the devil, but when it has something to do with blood one can’t do nothing.” Then both glance at Ruben, then they hug once more..

The gang once again heads to the dolorosa. Juana Matilde and the guys sing once more. The couples sing and make out. Juana Matilde tells Poncho, “hey man I’m really thirsty with that walk. I need a rum.” Miguel tells her, “oh you did a great job my little Gloria Estefan.” Poncho tells them, “hey rum for everyone for Poncho Sarmiento has been cured. So rum for everyone.” Everyone cheers, and high fives Poncho.

Over at the salguero house, Judge Geremias Guerra tells him. “Listen we have to write this down, in the journals and chronicals of corozal. So the future generation can fight the badness.” Calixto tells them, “well with love comparde but one could use the rosario for so much more.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “now on saturday were holding a rosario meeting. Over in aeora, than in perten. So what do you have to say about this?” Dona Dona tells her, “listen Margarita I have already told you don’t count on me. When I pray I do it in private.” Calixto tells her, “hey that’s a great idea to show off your gold rosario from monteseno with the fine cross on it. That you inherited it from your grandmother.” Dona Dona tells him, “I just don’t want nobody to rob it. The devil probably left corozal, but there is still one or another robbers out there. Oh girl Ophelia, what happened with the water. Hey how about giving some lemonade as well.” Dona Dona then heads to see Ophelia.

Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “definately in this city it seems like a dozen.” Calixto asks, “why do you say this comparde?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well the radio station contacted Bogota to inform about the news. Of our triumph, and you know what the radio guy said. That we were a bunch of liars, we in corazal were like this. A bunch of liars and fakers.” The guys then laugh, Calixto tells them. “What I think, is that all the corozal people should head to the capital. So we can try to get rid of all there demons. That are probably all over the place.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “listen Calixto we need to talk. Now I promised something, but I just can’t hold back. Its concerning your woman’s, gold rosario well she pawned it.” Calixto utters, “what?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “yes yes she pawned it but it was a sign out of love.”

Back at the dolorosa, Poncho tells them. “Now lets give a special hand, this is for the five juanas and Terezalsura. Well on the 12th, they are going to make happy four corozal friends of mine. A fellow from Barranquilla, and one european fellow.” The group kiss their partners, but Juana Valentina doesn’t want nothing to do with Manuel Efe. “Juana Valentina I do love you. Oh yes your going to make me very happy.” Juana Valentina utters, “enough already.” She rubs the tears from her eyes. While Manuel Efe makes a speech, “‘I’m taking this opportunity to talk about my honeymoon with my rabbit. Juana Valentina my Juana Valentina. This is the case, we will arrive in Madrid. From Madrid were going to Paris, in Paris were going to see the Effel Tower. We’re going the arc de triomphe, well its not small but a pretty big one. Later were going to the city of the boats.” Juana Valentina tells them, “Manuel Efe enough.” Manuel Efe tells them, “well then we will continue later.” Juana Valentina tells them, “well I want to really congratulate all of you. On the day of your matrimony oh yes.” They utter, “thank you.” Juana Valentina looks over at Ruben and Maria Delia. “You Ruben and you Maria Delia, from the bottom of my heart. Can you please, be so very happy truthfully.” Maria Delia tells her, “oh thank you so very much. That was so very beautiful.” Maria Delia then kisses Ruben.

Later at the salguero house, Calixto stops Ruben from entering the house. “I now know all the mysteries.” Ruben tells him, “father what’s going on? You’re not going to start that again?” Calixto tells him, “no wait a minute as the old saying says. Hold onto your broach, I’m going to take away your ladder. Do you know in the end, what happened with the gold rosario of monteseno. With the fine cross on it, of your mothers but its at the pawn shop.” Ruben asks, “well how did it end up over there?” Calixto tells him, “she took it there herself.” Ruben asks, “what why did she need money or something like that.” Calixto tells him, “no it wasn’t for her. Well you remember the mysterious amont of money. That would show up in the small box of Juana Calidad. It managed to save us, in those last months of the worse crisis. Well that was your mother, she herself told Margarita Cruz. She decided even though it was an obligation. She had to tell me.” Ruben tells him, “man in corozal impossible things happen. That’s the worst impossible one father.” Calixto tells him, “well Margarita didn’t give me details but. I really do think, that it was like this. Margarita one day, told your mother. That the juanas were supporting us, in the worst days of the crisis. Your mother was so moved, and so regretful for the way she behaved with them. From the first day they arrived, she processed this to vindicate herself. Just like I’m telling you.” Ruben asks, “how did mother enter the pink house?” Calixto tells him, “your mother must have a spare copy key.” Ruben tells him, “now I understand the strange attitude that was my mothers. With my sisters, for in one moment she accepted that all of them get married.” Calixto tells him, “plus she didn’t put a fuss when her nephew wanted to marry Juana Valentina.” Ruben utters, “yes.” Calixto tells him, “oh women are so very mysterious but your mother wins the national world wide prize.”

Juana Valentina leads Manuel Efe to the kitchen. Manuel Efe sweetly tells her, “one kiss for daddy now then my bunny rabbit. What would you like me, to help you in here?” Juana Valentina tells him, “now then to make everything quite clear. Come over here, I don’t love you.” Manuel Efe asks, “what are you saying my love?” Juana Valentina tells him, “exactly that I am not your love. Well the thing is, you are not my love.” Manuel Efe is shocked and asked, “but we were going to get married?” Juana Valentina tells him, “no I can’t do something that bad too you Manuel Efe. How can I marry you, when I don’t love you. You tell me, what ?” Manuel Efe asks, “are you despising me?” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen you just don’t understand. No I’m not, the thing is I know your a great person. Your a man that has a lot of qualities, in fact I am certain that in a couple of days your going to introduce me. Well too a woman, who is very beautiful and she will make you very happy. I do know this.” Manuel Efe asks, “but what did I do wrong. You were so very happy?” Juana Valentina tells him, “I don’t know I’m thinking that when all of my sisters and I. We’re acting so very strange, taking each other’s personalities. We began to feel some sort of affection for you Manuel Efe. Now that things have gotten back together. Everything is back to normal.”

Manuel Efe tells her, “this is like your pulling my leg.” Juana Valentina tells him, “its not possible but don’t even mention him. I know at this moment you fell bad, you are feeling so much pain but. Its really better for us all, its really is. In a couple of days, that wound will heal. You will be fine.” Manuel Efe asks, “your in love with another man.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen I’m not in love with you. That is the important reason, now lets not turn this situation around please. Look we can still be friends, only that friends only.” Once she leaves Manuel Efe is livid and furious. “Everything is back to normal. We can once again be friends once more. Oh man you once again, humiliated me Juana Valentina. Again you humilated me, well fine that doesn’t matter. For tomorrow your grand love gets married. Your going to cry blood, and I will enjoy watching you cry those tears. Oh daaa I will still have time, to see you pay for everything. One by one, everything that you have done to me.”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona gets Ruben to try out his frock once more. Ruben is very miserable. “Oh good it still fits, tomorrow it will be the last time your going to to put it on. Oh your going to look so very handsome tomorrow. My Ruben Calxto.” Ruben takes the frock off, “if you say so.” Dona Dona asks, “so you don’t want to marry Maria Delia right?” Ruben tells her, “mother how many times have I told you. I am going to marry Maria Delia.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes you’re going to get married. But you just don’t want too right?” Ruben tells her, “Maria Delia will be your daughter in law. The mother of your grandchildren.” Dona Dona asks, “are you in love?” Ruben tells her, “when I’m with her I feel like I’m in a different dimension. Where limits don’t exist, the impossibles. I feel I can once again conquer the world. I don’t need to know how to fly. For my soul is among the stars. I see everything from above. A small insect, is the most marvelous of creatures mother. A child is a blessing from god. One ray of sun, keeps me warm. A raindrop takes away all my anguishes. I just see her in everything big or small. Do you understand mother, she’s the reason I live. I have completed my vital task, for I got to know her. We breath the same air, we laugh together. We touch faces, I hear her voice. I look into her eyes, I get nervous and I also hear her heart. I have already finished my task mother. There is nothing more I can do. I have lived, the most important part of my life in this world. From this day forth, I just have the sound of her laughter. Its the only thing, that accompanies me when I am all by myself. Well without her always, I will always be alone. Always mother.” Tears flow down Dona Dona’s face she tells him. “Oh Ruben Calixto.” Ruben tells her, “I will live just remembering her. I will have her by my side. Even it its just in my imagination. I will invent conversations with her. I will read her things, I will see her different expressions on her face. I will say to her words of love, on her lips.” He can’t stop anymore and cries. When I have a son, I will pray to god. That he can’t permit, one that can’t love someone they aren’t suppose to love.” Dona Dona asks, “its not Maria Delia?” Ruben tells her, “no but she’s the one that I’m going to marry.”

Juana Valentina is now dressed for bed. When Juana Bautista visits her, she asks. “So what are you going to do in your life?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I wish that I knew the answer to that question but I don’t. But the one thing I do know, is that I don’t regret what I told Manuel Efe. Its just wouldn’t be the point, staying with him when I can’t even suppport him.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “I’m guesing it was that strange feeling that we went through. Well one couldn’t even explain, the strange and explicite way we were all attracted to him.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I really do feel sorry for him. Yes he’s annoying and arrogant but. I think his intentions from the inside are good.”

At the dolorsa, Todoelmundo tells them. “Lets talk about cain.” Octavio tells him, “enough Todoelmundo we are going to stop you there. Or else your going to start teaching us classes all night.” Manuel Efe is still sad and is drinking.”Orlando tells him, “well if he’s once again normal. That means for now, because in corozal a lost of strange things occur without a word of notice.” Miguel tells him, “don’t be a spoilsport.” Poncho tells them, “well I don’t care if there’s that indifference kiss once more. That lighting that hit Don Calixto. It hurt him just a bit, what is more damaging is. When their evil badness behind everything.” Miguel tells him, “see now that this is over. We have stopped seeing, that strange man that walked all over the place. May he never return.” Octavio tells him, “don’t even mention his name or else he will think your calling him.” Miguel tells him, “well Juana Matilde thought he was very attractive.” Poncho tells them, “not only Juana Matilde well what about the other girls. They looked at him, and they were starstruck. Well yes the guy wasn’t ugly.” The guys make fun of him, “your not turning the other way?” Poncho tells them, “no wonder Poncho doesn’t get any women.” Poncho angrily hits him, “I’m going to hit you over the head. You know very well, I like older women.” Octavio tells him, “fine fine older women. Now then what happens now, what will happen to our lives.” Mauricio tells him, “this is what’s going to happen Rubencho will get married tomorrow. Then it will be a matter of days, before all of us are getting married. All of us with a juana, and Todoelmundo with Terezalsura.” Gualberto tells him, “yes and you might as well say goodbye to the good life guys.” Octavio tells them, “life guys and they said that corozal angels didn’t come down. One day without knowing, one appeared around here. Everything then changed, we are all almost in the front of that church and soon at the altar.” Poncho tells him, “Octavio to me it sounds silly for him and I we are still single. We are going to enjoy our liberty man. All the women we are going to pick up. Hey guys don’t be jealous, doesn’t it make you jealous european man?” Miguel asks, “what did we offend you in what we were talking about?” Manuel Efe angrily tells them, “hey all of you go where we all know. Or far away than that.” He takes off, while Poncho tells him. “Hey man stop crying.” Octavio asks, “hey what happened to Manuel Efe he’s like. A man that’s the devil has his soul.” Everyone tells him, to shut up.

Over at the salguero house, Calixto is with his family. “Oh man all the earthquakes have disappeared. Here I thought Todoelmundo was joking around, but sooner than later. I began to be convinced, that his theory was correct. Fortunately everything has gone back to normal. Yes who would have thought, what would have happened on the day of your wedding Ruben.” Manuel Efe shows up, “Manuel Efe has arrived.” Ruben utters, “oh say it ain’t so.” Calixto tells him, “hey soon he’s going to be your brother in law so you have to be nice too him.” Calixto goes too him, “hello nephew.” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh hello uncle.” Manuel Efe asks, “before I went to the hotel to sleep. I came by to see, if you need anything for tomorrow.” Dona Dona tells him, “thank you nephew but everything is ready. You know what I was thinking, that with some alternations. You too could also wear Ruben Calixto’s frock. For that terrible day of your wedding, when you marry that older iligitimate girl. It has a lot to pull up, if you want.” Manuel Efe gets a rum for himself, he tells her. “That won’t be necessary.” Dona Dona ask, “what you don’t want to use my son’s frock?” Manuel Efe tells them, “exactly.” Ruben ask, “so where are you getting yours from europe?” Manuel Efe tells them, “I won’t be using any frock or no suit from europe. For I am no longer getting married.” Ruben asks, “repeat it.” Dona Dona utters, “what?” Manuel Efe tells them, “I am not going to get married too Juana Valentina Echineque but your going to marry Maria Delia Espina.” Dona Dona asks, “what are you saying nephew?” Manuel Efe tells them, “don’t let me repeat myself.”

Calixto ask, “what happened did you repent?” Manuel Efe tells them, ” no but she did. She told me, she didn’t want me to be her husband.” Calixto utters, “but this simply can’t be.” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes it can and I have made so many plans. Well for her and for our future. She didn’t even care, for what anyway uncle it doesn’t matter anymore uncle. That is life?” Dona Dona ask, “but what happened? What exactly did she tell you?” Manuel Efe tells her, “enough I told you I am not getting married its over. You what, you should be very happy. I mean since tomorrow you are getting married daaa.” Dona Dona tells him, “but wait Manuel Efe. He finishes his drink and takes off. Who understands that daughter of yours Mr. Salguero? She gets up in the morning, saying yes and that she’s so in love. Now she’s saying no, forgive me Mr. Salguero this isn’t serious.” Calixto tells her, “well it seemed like that too me. Unless it was the cause of the …” Dona Dona tells him, “don’t you dare even speak his name.” Calixto tells them, “well I really do feel for Manuel Efe. I also feel for me, you have won dear. You have won, my daughter is going to leave corozal.” Dona Dona tells them, “hopefully she will repent as well?” Ruben asks, “you want her to marry mother?” Dona Dona tells him, “well no no I just don’t like to see my nephew that way. Then she goes to her bedroom. While that oldest girl isn’t married, or not close to here. The danger is still close, that is who Ruben truly loves.”

Judge Geremias Guerra is at home, and tells Margarita Cruz. “I have been lucky, to have been surrounded by many people who care for me. Calixto, Ruben, the juanas, even Dona now you. Life has completed me.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “because you have completed life.” The phone rings, Judge Geremias Guerra gets it. “Yes this is Judge Geremias Guerra municipal judge. Hi comparde how are you doing? Yes I am here, still surprised over the rosario business with Dona. So how are you doing, very good yes its close too me. I will do it at first light, I’m getting ready early. Just in case there’s something to do. Yes its nothing comparde, but a relief quite a blessing he’s no longer here. Well goodnight comparde. Oh Margarita Calixto has a great idea.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina is with Tere. Tere tells her, “it just breaks my heart to see you crying this way Juana Valentina. Its always like this, when ever nobody would give candy. Oh when you would lose at something daughter. I would give anything, as long as this pain was my own Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh Tere nothing will ever get rid of this pain.” Tere tells her, “if only Dona Rosario hadn’t told you on that date. That Mr. Echenique wasn’t your father by blood.” Juana Valentina tells her, “why bother regretting what occured. Tomorrow is going to be the same day, but I can’t do nothing. I can’t stop this from occuring. Don’t you know what that signifies, do you understand my impotence. Ruben gets married tomorrow, I just can’t do nothing Tere.” Tere tells her, “see nothing stopped you I even warned you. Don’t fall in love with that senor.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I just want I just want. That I lived in one of those places. That the night, seems to last for months.” Tere asks, “but why dear? To extend your pain, is that what you want?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I don’t want him to get married Tere. I just don’t want him to get married. Its like they are ripping out my heart. Why do I want to live, without a heart.”

Ruben is walking outside towards the front gates. In the dark, he freaks out and hits the fence. He goes to the gate. “These tears weren’t for you, I just wouldn’t care to cry. Its just without you, I can’t live. I will never forget you, Juana Valentina Echineque. He slams the gate, Juana Valentina Salguero.” He then falls to the ground crying.

The next morning Juana Valentina is up. “Morning has come, there’s only a few hours left.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “all of us have awakened. Why don’t you come down, and have a coffee.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I don’t want too. Today is the day Juana Bautista.” Juana Bautisa tells him, “yes today is the day and also the day of your salvation.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’m still furious over what Ruben did too me. With that witch Yolanda Del Cabrales woman. But that doesn’t mean, that I have stopped loving him a single bit.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I know that maybe its for the best. That in a little while, you will love him little by little. Then before you know it, you have stopped loving him.” Juana Valentina tells her, “why does the sun have to rise every single day. Dear lord, why can’t I stop time. What is the reason, last night I had to take the batteries out of the clock. So I wouldn’t see the minutes pass, I was going crazy. Tick tack tick tack.” Juana Bautista tells her, “girl no more.” Juana Valentina tells her, “all night it was tick tock tick tock.” Juana Bautista tells her, “leave that girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “go downstairs and get something to eat. Or else our sisters, will get supicous. They are then, going to want an explination. What am I going to tell them?”

Ruben awakens he glances at the phone. “Juana Valentina call me, and tell me not to get married. Please Juana Valentina, tell me.”

Maria Delia is talking to her mother Ramona. “Now then first to enter the church are the godparents. Next is godfather and me, then all the rest. I had hoped that the juanas were going to be at the reception. But Dona Dona relented, and said they could only attend the wedding. Mother we have to tell the musicians, that please play the wedding march slowly. I want to enter the church very slowly heared me.” Ramona tells her, “that has already been done dear.” Maria Delia tells her, “don’t forget to call the club. Make sure the wine, Manuel Efe recommended arrived.” Ramona tells her, “I already called it has arrived.” Maria Delia tells her, “oh dear me how anguished I am. Man its only six am, sometimes you really do want time to go quickly. Well it never does.”

Dona Dona is still very affected by Ruben’s words. She finishes her tea, and Calixto enters the room. Calixto tells her, “on the night of our wedding Dona. I thought it was endless, I counted every second. I began to think what would our married life be. What I would feel, every morning I would wake up. Seeing you lying next too me. I spend all night dreaming awake. You want me to tell you something Dona. What was waiting for me later, was something more incredible. Than what I dreamt that night.” Dona Dona tells him, “32 years have passed. 32 and I don’t know the time.” Calixto tells her, “when I wake up in the mornings. I am thankful that I knew love, for I feel love for my children. Love for my friends, for my job. But for you Dona, I feel an over whelming love. Well it doesn’t matter, sometimes. Well sometimes, I think your the motor that keeps me going. The reason for my life is you. See that even now, I feel my heart still beating fast for you. When you are near me.” Dona Dona tells him, “only words Mr. Salguero.” He then caresses her face.

Ruben is staring at the phone, he almost screams. “Juana Valentina what are you waiting for. One single word from you, there won’t be a wedding.”

Juana Valentina is at home, staring at the phone. As she’s about to dial, Tere stops her. “No Juana Valentina don’t. Please dear, on the love that Don Calixto Salguero had for your mother. Please don’t do it.” Juana Valentina asks, “how did you feel when you said goodbye to your mexican sailor?” Tere tells her, “my love its two different things. Two different loves, the love you feel for Ruben. Yes its very big and important, but its impossible. Between me and my mexican sailor. All we would have is sadness, but between us the only thing. Stopping our love, was the sea not our blood.” Juana Valentina then hangs up the phone, and runs back to her room.

Manuel Efe is in his room, he calls Yolanda. “Yes jolly five hours is left. In five hours, Ruben will be married. It will be there when Juana Valentina Echenique will cry blood tears. She once again humiliated me, but it doesn’t matter. Ruben who cares about him, Ruben is going to marry Maria Delia Espina. Can you just image marrying Maria Delia Espina. That woman who talks non-stop up to her elbows. Yes yes, ha ha ha. To live with that, it would be like living in an inferno daaa. That word escaped, yes yes yes. Yes jolly what we have to do now is, get our vengence on the juanas. Especially Juana Valentina, well then the best thing that I have thought up. Yolanda Del Cabrales has hung up. Jolly jolly, jolly you bald woman.”

Judge Geremias Guerra arrives at the salguero house. Calixto asks, “hello comparde anything bad happened?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “no oh here you go Calixto. I’ve brought this for you. Here is the receipt as well.” Calixto tells him, “they give you this like nothing. You don’t even have to prove anything.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh my arguements were convincing. I told the man, if he didn’t give it too me. I would put him in jail as a con-man and theif. Image giving only 2000 than what that is valued.” Calixto tells him, “shh I’ll write you a cheque comparde.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “give it too me on Monday. What am I going to do, this weekend with a cheque.” Calixto tells him, ” perfect comparde.” Ruben ask, “so what are you talking about?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “your father will explain it too you later. Now then see you all at the church. Alright I’m going to get changed, anything you need I’ll be at home.” Calixto tells him, “thank you comparde.” Ruben tells him, “thank you godfather bye. So dad what’s that?”

Calixto tells him, “you’ll see. Oh Dona would you mind coming here for a moment.” Dona Dona tells him, “I heard the judge’s voice. I won’t come out there, I am unpresentable.” Calixto tells him, “but the judge left already come as you are.” Ruben ask, “come on tell me.” Dona Dona asks, “now then what’s going on?” Calixto tells her, “the judge gave me something that’s for you.” Dona Dona ask, “what is it?” Calixto tells her, “open it.” Dona Dona has too hold herself from crying, “well where did you get it?” Calixto tells her, “where it shouldn’t have been.” Dona Dona ask, “why are you putting yourself in my things.” Calixto tells her, “dear your putting yourself in mine. Well forgive me dear, Dona you don’t know how much. Everything you have done for me. I appreciate it dearly.” He hugs and kisses her. Dona Dona tells him, “I pawned it. For I needed that money, so I could buy somethings for myself. In this house, there was no money. I am accustomed to fine things. my perfumes, my soaps, my creams. So I gave myself that gift.” Then she leaves, and the two simply watch as she goes to her bedroom. Calixto tells him, “now listen she better not find out. How we found out everything, or else she’s going to kill Margarita Cruz.” Ruben simply hugs his father. Dona Dona burst out crying in her bedroom. “Oh Calixto Salguero how could you have been such a flirt.”

Over at the pink house, Mauricio arrives and talks to Juana Calidad. “Now then Cadi I’m going to be pick you up at eleven thirty. Now make sure all your sisters are ready. Especially Juana Matilde.” Juana Calidad tells him, “now don’t you worry Juana Manny is fixing her up right now.” Mauricio tells her, “now do me one more favor. Now don’t make yourself so pretty. Your getting a lot of attention from many guys. That really shocks me. Juana Calidad laughs, and he tells her. Now my love, see you later.” Juana Calidad tells him, “bye hey aren’t you forgetting something?” Mauricio grins and tells her, “oh yes.” This time its him, that grabs her and kisses her. Until she’s the breathless one. When he’s gone, she utters. “Oh Mauricio Fuentelafria.”

Over at Maria Delia’s place. She’s getting her hair done, while Ramona has her tea. “Oh mother, its a shame father wasn’t here with us. Even though from heaven, he’s sending us his blessings. He always said that my Rubensito was a great boy. Ouch girl.” Ramona tells her, “yes that’s true.” Maria Delia tells her, “now then lets not discuss anymore sad things. After the wedding, we are coming back here, so I can change hear me.” Ramona tells her, “everything is ready.” Maria Delia tells her, “I would love to stay long at the reception. But from here to barranquilla, its a long way. I always said, that Rubensito should learn how to fly. Then we wouldn’t be having this problem.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina is still in her room. Tere shows up and tells her. “Juana Valentina my love you will never guess who’s downstairs. None other than Yolanda Del Cabrales, can you believe this.” Juana Valentina utters, “Yolanda Del Cabrales?” Tere tells her, “I am terrorized in seeing her. Remember everything that Todoelmundo told us. Well its all true, you see when she said who she was. I hardly recognized her.” Juana Valentina asks, “what is she doing here?”Tere tells her, “she told me that she needed to talk to all of you.” Juana Valentina angrily tells her, “no tell her to leave here. To get out of here, for I don’t want to see her. With me and my sisters, there’s absolutely nothing to talk about. Tell her to leave, tell her to leave.” Tere tells her, “wait a minute the thing is that is what I told her. She said no, and she planted herself like a tree. She said she won’t leave, until she tells you exactly why she came here for.” Juana Valentina tells her, “fine then tell her I’ll talk to her but alone. Not in front of my sisters.” Tere tells her, “well what for. They all found out, so you can just image.”

Juana Valentina comes down, “girls go upstairs to your bedrooms. I’m going to be talking with her.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh no I want to hear what she has too say. Get over here right now.” Juana Matilde tells her, “get over here Juana Manny. Listen girl we all want to hear her responses. Look she’s wearing gloves, and this hat. Before she had her hair up to here.” Juana Valentina tells them, “enough all of you I’ll talk to her. Then I’ll tell you everything alright.” Yolanda tells her, “Juana Valentina I want everyone to hear this.” Tere tells them, “remember what todoelmundo told us she can’t prounce the h.” Yolanda tells them, “yes that is one of my illness I can’t pronouce the h.” Juana Manny burst out laughing, Juana Matilde tells her. “Oh Juana Manny.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well what ever you have to tell us. Well it doesn’t interest us. In absolute, so you don’t have to waste your time. All of your history with Ruben, or what ever. My sisters aren’t interested, we have a busy day today.” Yolanda asks, “Ruben marries today right?” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes Ruben marries today.” Juana Valentina tells her, “we won’t permit you to stop this wedding from occuring.” Yolanda tells them, “I have no intention too interrupt Ruben Salguero’s wedding. Well I think maybe I should. May I…” They utter, “sure go ahead.” Everyone fights to get a seat. Yolanda tells them, “Ruben Calixto came to see me in sincelejo.” Juana Matilde ask, “where?” Juana Bautista tells her, “she said sincelejo.” Yolanda tells them, “Ruben talked while I listened. Well with what he told me, I at last realized that love isn’t a game.” Juana Matilde tells her, “please seno talk clearer so we can understand you.” Juana Bautista tells her, “she said love isn’t a game.” Juana Valentina tells her, “girl please.” Yolanda tells them, “I have come here to ask for forgiveness. Yes I am sorry, especially too you Juana Valentina.”

(Now the h is basically J in english.)

Tere utters, “the h you can pronouce the h?” Juana Matilde asks, “say that again.” Yolanda smiles, “Juana Valentina yes I said it.” Juana Calidad tellls them, “its because of the d… Its because that man has left here.” Juana Bautista asks, “I’d like to know when did these illness start.” Yolanda tells her, “well I don’t remember clearly. Well I remember it was after I left here, and about the time of Dona Dona’s party.” Juana Bautista tells her, “the broken mirror you ended up being the recipient of a broken mirror.” Juana Valentina remembers the fateful night. Yolanda ask, “wait your telling me my nails won’t stop growing. My cows don’t give milk but water. I lost my hair, what for a broken mirror my dear.” Juana Bautista tells her, “no senora but because of your actions.” Yolanda tells her, “hey no more hiccups. I lied to harm people, in fact I lied so I can hurt you Juana Valentina. I am referring what occured with Ruben Calixto, its all a lie. I made it all up, its true I was interested in him as man. There was never love, well he rejected me I became very prideful. I wanted too loathe all of you, I wanted to hurt you all. But between Ruben Calixto and me. Well there was nothing. In fact Ruben Calixto, well he never touched me. Nor did touch him but, I did try to touch him but nothing. There was just one kiss, it wasn’t for desire nor love.”

Juana Manny gets up angrily, “so you spread the rumor that you two slept with one another. That you were leaving town so overjoyed, after what you did. My brother suffered, you know what. I gave up boxing but with this woman.” As she’s ready to attack, the girls hold her back. “Juana Manny.” Juana Valentina tells them, “that’s enough. Juana Bautista tries to calm herself down. Knowing what this is going to imply. Why are you coming here telling us everything? Or not before for example.” Yolanda tells them, “well I’ve never known what one feels. Well this regretfulness, this sin, you know bad things were done. I was very regretful. Truthfully I am very sorry, very sorry. Hey my nails stopped growing.” Juana Calidad utters, “oh virgin de purgatory.” Juana Bautista tells her, “you don’t have to call on her. This isn’t something to be scared of. On the contrary.” Juana Matilde tells them, “now then before you say anything more Juana Bautista. I am mixed up twisted in something. You must explain to me, something that’s in my head please. Well what you are pretending, to tell all of us is what? Well between you and my brother Ruben. Nothing happened, its just my curiosity.”

Yolanda tells her, “well nothing happened I inventing everything. My ally was Manuel Efe.” They all utter, “what?” Yolanda tells them, “yes you see Manuel Efe lied to Ruben so he can come to this pink house. Telling him the italian fellow was waiting for him. We both knew that the italian fellow was with you all in the dolorosa. Well since I told everyone, that I had left corozal. Ruben innocently fell.” Juana Matilde tells her, “Miguel always told me behind that european guy there was something strange.” Yolanda tells her, “I must tell you everything. That night when Ruben arrived here, I locked him up here. I hid the keys, and tried to seduce him. He didn’t response, nothing happened. Meanwhile Manuel Efe took charge, making sure someone came here to discover us together. What that person saw, well wasn’t true.” Juana Manny angrily utters, “I’m going to break her face.” Tears flow down Juana Valentina’s face. Tere utters, “dear lord.” Juana Calidad tells her, “your a very bad lady.” Juana Manny tells them, “yes I’m going to break that Manuel Efe’s face that bastard.” Everyone utters, “yes.” Yolanda continues, “we all conspired to hurt everyone of you. Plus too destroy a love.” Juana Valentina tells them, “now girls please let me talk to her for a minute alone please.” Juana Bautista tells them, “now then girls as our older sister is saying. Everyone go upstairs.” Juana Manny yells out, “no I want to hear everything.” Tere tells them, “no up you go all of you. Besides you must all get ready.” Juana Calidad in tears tells them, “here I trusted Manuel Efe.” Juana Bautista tells them, “enough everyone get upstairs.” Juana Matilde tells them, “well I don’t know.”

Tere follows then Juana Valentina and Yolanda are alone. Juana Valentina asks, “but why Yolanda?” Yolanda tells her, “we became allies it was natural. We wanted to hurt you, nothing else. I wanted to rob Ruben Calixto. Manuel Efe he did it because, he was angry and wanted revenge. It was because you kept on rejecting him. Look Juana Valentina. If love unites, so does loathing. But you know something, me at this point of my life. I envied someone like you, who could love the way you do. Well in your case, even too suffer for love. I know that today Ruben Calixto is getting married today. I believe, well I’m sorry that your feeling this pain. In fact I shouldn’t have told you nothing. You should really continue despising him. Well I need your forgiveness, to continue living.”

Later Juana Valentina goes too her bedroom. “I’m going to kill him, I’m going to kill him.” Juana Bautista tells her, “relax and calm down.” Juana Valentina tells her, “how can I relax. They united Juana Bautista, to bring pain to all of us. They united in everything, not only am I going to kill him. He’s going to be dead.” Juana Bautista tells her, “how ever it happened they did you a favor.” Juana Valentina asks, “what favor? Didn’t you see what they did to me Juana Bautista? They made me reject and despise Ruben. Oh dear lord.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Ruben is getting married and you can’t stop that.”Juana Valentina tells her, “don’t you realize something.”

Juana Matilde interrupts them, “girls girls can I ask you something. Do you think this dress is divine?” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes divine.” Juana Matilde then ask, “now then which shoes.” Each of them pick another shoe. Juana Valentina tells her, “listen it doesn’t matter.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well I like the shiny ones they make the outift better.” Juana Valentina tells her, “dear it doesn’t matter. Now hurry it up, or else your going to be late.” Juana Matilde tells them, “fine I’m going to put this one on. But girls can you believe it, terrible of Manuel Efe and Yolanda Del Cabrales. Let me tell you, I am still pretty shocked. I don’t know what you lot are thinking. Me personally I’m just saying well its terrible. I’m just saying.” Juana Valentina simply utters, “ok now hurry and finish getting dressed.”

Juana Bautista tells her, “listen Juana Valentina pay back Manuel Efe later.” Juana Valentina tells her, “when no I must now go and ask Ruben for forgiveness. Before he gets married, Juana Bautista I doubted him. Don’t you understand?” Juana Bautista tells her, “your going to let Ruben get married you must understand.”

Juana Manny is the next to interrupt. “Listen do you want me, to do your hair now or later?” Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Valentina won’t be going to the church.” Juana Manny asks, “and why not?” Juana Bautista tells her, “because Dona Dona is going too be there. So she can’t go, and doesn’t want too go.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh yes I understand. But can you believe what that Cabrales woman and Manuel Efe did. You should have allowed me to put my hands on her girls.” Juana Bautista tells her, “girl listen she came to ask for our forgiveness. Now its over Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells her, “well wouldn’t it have been better. Well with one big punch already.” Then she takes off.

Juana Valentina tells her, “I am going to that church. I am going to ask him for forgiveness. I will talk to Ruben and that’s final.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen the love between the two of you has caused you all a lot of damage. Never will you be Ruben Salguero’s. He will never be yours, now enough let him accept that you pushed him away. Girl do it for you and for him.”

The next to interrupt is Juana Calidad. “Oh thank you for the conviction and repentance. Yes one has to accept that, when one asks for forgiveness. Oh dear lord, please forgive Yolanda Del Cabrales. Just like we have forgiven her, but that woman resulted in being a bad lady or no?” Juana Valentina asks, “and what about that liar Manuel Efe?”Juana Calidad tells them, “you know I never would have imaged that. That Manuel Efe would want to hurt us, and his proper cousin Ruben. At any case I am going to pray for him. Hopefully he realizes his errors, and asks for forgiveness like Yolanda Del Cabrales. But I’m telling you one thing. That payment we owe him, well sor juana inez de la cruz can pay him back oh yes.” She then heads to her room. Juana Bautista tells her, “older sister please save your brother from your love.”

Over at the salguero house, Manuel Efe has returned. “Listen uncle everything is all organized and synchronized. When you leave to go to the church. I’ll go get the bride, then I will take her to the church to give her away to the groom at the altar. It will be at 12 sharp.” Calixto tells him, “listen and remember you must get there before us. We live practically close to that church.” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh yes your correct on that point uncle. Oh yes and women do like too take their time fixing themselves up. Alright I’ll pick her up around 11:30 then.” Calixto tells him, “well that could good. You know something nephew. It must take a lot of work, to accept the last decisions of Juana Valentina.” Manuel Efe tells him, “its nothing. It will pass, women are weather vanes uncle. One day they say yes, the other day no. Another day they respond one thing, the next day another. Well that is how they go through life.” Calixto tells him, “yes yes but in any case I really do feel bad about this. Here I was dreaming on the 12th, seeing all five of my daughters entering that church going to get married.” Manuel Efe tells him, “well there’s a lot of time that has to pass before then uncle.” Calixto tells him, “sorry nephew I didn’t want to put you down. Don’t have too much hope.” Manuel Efe tells him, “that reminds me of a phrase from Arjone. The hope is the last thing, that goes missing. Calixto shakes his head and goes to change. When he’s gone Manuel Efe utters, daaa today your beloved gets married. When he’s getting married, your going to cry. Oh yes your going to cry, Juana Valentina Echieneque daaa.” He then takes off.

Dona Dona is coming out of her room. She sees Calixto, “Mr. Salguero shower and change or else the day will go away.” Calixto utters, “yes yes.” Dona Dona then sees Ruben coming out miserably out of his bedroom. Ruben tells her, “hello mother.” Dona Dona tells him, “umda son the outfit looks precious on you. Yes you should get married every day.” Ruben tells her, “yes I should lie every single day.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh son your confession has me extremely affected.” Ruben tells her, “just forget all about it mother. Well what time is it?” Dona Dona tells him, “its almost 10. Now son why don’t you take off the jacket. Then you won’t be so hot.” Ruben tells her, “no it doesn’t matter at lunchtime it will be quite hot anyways. Care too drink anything?” Dona Dona tells him, “no son thank you.” As she’s about to say something she stops. Ruben tells her, “as my father says. A rumsito is something one needs sometimes. In the good and bad times.” Dona Dona ask, “and its a bad day for you yes?” Ruben tells her, “I promised that I was going to marry Maria Delia. I am going to marry her, I promise to make her very happy.” Dona Dona asks, “and you son? Are you going to be happy as well?” Ruben tells her, “the process is from the inside mother. This process is mine, not yours.”

The girls are almost ready, Juana Manny is fixing up Juana Calidad. Juana Matilde tells her, “now then I’m ready so how are we going to get there?” Juana Calidad tells them, “Mauricio is going to be picking us up. The boys will be waiting for us at the church.” Juana Matilde tells her, “but come on not all of us are going to fit in Mauricio’s car.” Juana Manny tells her, “we will for Juana Valentina and Terezalsura aren’t coming.” Juana Matilde asks, “what do you mean? Tere I can understand, but Juana Valentina. Not go to our little brother’s wedding it just can’t be.” Juana Manny tells her, “what’s going on is she doesn’t want to see Dona Dona.” Juana Calidad asks, “but I don’t understand. Why would she accept us, but is still against Juana Valentina.” Juana Manny tells her, “hey girl if you want to ask that senora then go ahead and ask. Now then girl your ready.” Juana Calidad tells them, “oh there is Mauricio.”

(I thought only the bride could wear white.)

Juana Bautista is talking with Juana Valentina. Both are ready to go out. “I am going to go Juana Bautista. I’ll hide out in the chorus, or which ever part I can find. Nobody will know that I’m there, so don’t you worry. But I am going.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Valentina girl why are you doing this?” Juana Valentina tells her, “the guilt of a sin has too be pain till the end. Alright so don’t you worry, now then when the priest asks. If anybody apposes this wedding, please speak now or forever hold your peace. Well I will stay quiet, and not scream out no. But yes I am going there Juana Bautista. But if I see that Manuel Efe, he’s dead do you hear me.”

Maria Delia is all ready to go. She is talking sweetly to her mother. “Now then Manuel Efe asked me, that if we wanted he could taking us straight to barranquilla in his plane. But Rubensito said no, refused him straight out.” Ramona asks, “but why dear? The trip would be shorter and more comfortable.” Maria Delia tells her, “well I don’t know mother.” The stylists tells her, “please do stand still.” Maria Delia whins, “oh I’m just so nervous. In the end, I just couldn’t convince Rubensito in any way. I find that its more wonderful, leaving in a plane than being on the road. Don’t you think so mother?” Ramona tells her, “yes of course dear.” Maria Delia tells her, “but let me tell you something. When we return from our honeymoon. I am going to insist that he buys a plane.” Manuel Efe arrives, “the godfather has arrived. Oh hello seno how are you doing?” Maria Delia uttes, “but its too early.” Manuel Efe tells her, “daaa now what does the most beautiful bride in the world have to say today.” Maria Delia ask, “but godfather aren’t you a bit early don’t you think?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes of course but its best that we go early. Just in case, well something goes badly.” Ramona ask, “would you care to drink anything? Manuel Efe tells her, “yes seno thank you. Outside there’s an inferno out there.” Maria Delia utters, “thank you gloria.” Manuel Efe tells her, “Maria Delia Maria Delia. My dear if the princess carolina of monaco, would have seen you. She would have died of pure envy and jealous.” Maria Delia looks deep into his eyes, he looks into hers. Then she utters, “Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe utters, “Maria Delia. Then the earth begins to shake. Well I don’t know, what is going on. But I feel I’m shaking all over. Absolutely everything.” Maria Delia smiles and tells him, “me as well.”

At the church everyone has taken their places. Calixto tells Dona Dona, “oh with this heat and us wearing these clothes.” Dona Dona tells him, “its better in here than the inferno that’s outside.” Calixto smiles at seeing his friends. “Oh comparde how’s it going?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well hello comparde, Dona, godson.” Dona Dona tells her, “oh Margarita you look quite elegant.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “thank you hello Dona Calixto Ruben.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “and when is the bride going to arrive.” Calixto tells him, “Manuel Efe is going to bring her in his famous little european car. Plus as the godfather, he will be giving her away as well.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “may god protect him that poor saintly man.” Dona Dona tells her, “oh yes the poor man who died at a bad time. Or else we wouldn’t have to do this cursed thing once again.” Calixto asks, “your calling the day of your son’s wedding cursed?” Dona Dona tells him, “well the thing is it was a curse to once again prepare everything for a second time. Now then I’m going to sit down, I can’t stand these feet of mine. See you later.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “now then do we also stand here and wait. Or should we also sit down and wait as well?” Calixto tells them, “its best that we endure this heat inside rather than that inferno outside.”

Juana Caliad and Mauricio arrive, “ave maria purisima.” Calixto utters, “hello daugher how are you today?” Mauricio shakes their hands, “Don Calixto Ruben.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh Ruben may the good lord bring you much happiness and joy.” Ruben kisses her, and tells her. “Thank you for your best wishes and good intentions Juana Calidad.” Mauricio tells him, “on behalf of me and my family. Congratualtions and may god protect you. Be very happy with Maria Delia. Don Calixto congratulations.” Calixto tells them, “yes thank you.” Juana Calidad tells them, “well then excuse me.” Calixto tells them, “over there is more refreshing.” Mauricio utters, “thank you.”

Next to arrive is Miguel and Juana Matilde. “Hey look who’s here, but none other than my little brother. Your so very handsome and beautiful today. Umda this does shock me really, oh I’m really jealous of Maria Delia.” Miguel tells her, “how could you even say that Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey but its the truth. This man could be my brother or what ever. But one can’t deny, he’s a nice fine stamp. Hey Ruben if you weren’t my brother, hey he’d be your brother in law. Ha ha ha.” Calixto utters, “oh this crazy daughter of mine.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh father it was a joke aren’t you hearing me. Now then Ruben, be very happy in your marriage. But you better be careful, and not forget your sisters. Do you hear me?” Ruben tells her, “believe me I will never forget you all.” Juana Matilde whins, “oh so divine and your getting married.” Then she greats her father, Miguel tells him. “Well then Rubencho I’m saying it, your soon to be my brother in law.” Juana Matilde utters, “you just had to say it didn’t you.”

Next to arrive is Octavio and Juana Manny. Juana Manny hits Gualberto, “hi guys hi judge hi mother.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “oh daughter that dress is so very beautiful. Hi little brother, are you ready to sacrifice yourself.” Margarita Cruz utters, “oh nena he’s getting married. Your saying its a sacrifice.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh mom its just a way of saying things.” Octavio tells him, “hey Rubencho just wait on the 12th. Your going to have four more sacrificed guys.” Juana Manny hits him with her purse. “Hey watch what you say scary frog.” Octavio tells her, “hey you started it. Well then Rubencho, I am just saying. I congratulate you, and wish you the very best in this world. You do understand right?” Ruben tells him, “thanks Octavio.” Octavio utters, “hey Don Calixto.” Calixto utters, “oh your such a guy.” Juana Manny then greets her father. “Hi father how do I look.” Calixto tells her, “beautiful as always. They then head over with the others. Calixto tells the judge, now then comparde. How about we go inside, I can’t stand these feet of mine.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “sure lets go.” Ruben tells them, “I’ll stay right here there’s a nice breeze coming in.”

Next to arrive is Orlando and Juana Bautista. “Hey Rubencho its your day today. Its a good thing your not getting married on the 12th with us. We wouldn’t be able to see the logic, that this wedding entails. Anyway, congratulations Rubencho.” Ruben tells him, “thanks wolf man.” Orlando tells him, “yes have a happy life.” Juana Bautista tells him, “may the future give you peace little brother.” Ruben tells her, “you more than anybody knows what’s waiting for me in the future. Juana Bautista where is Juana Valentina? Is she coming?” Juana Bautista tells him, “you do understand that its best that she didn’t come. Its normal.” Ruben tells her, “tell her I never lied too her. Yes I’m getting married, but loving her.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I am not going to tell her that. She kisses him, then tells him. Come on let me accompany you to the altar.” As they walk away, Juana Bautista glances back to make sure Juana Valentina isn’t there.

Poncho, Lasador and Gualberto enter plus the other guests. Juana Valentina does arrive and heads straight upstairs. Juana Bautista asks, “what’s wrong?” Ruben has stopped walking and tells her, “oh I feel… oh its nothing.” Juana Bautista looks around and goes next to Orlando.

Back at the house, Tere is cooking. Todoelmundo is with her, and he asks. “Tell me something why didn’t you go too the wedding? Even out of curiosity?” Tere tells him, “weddings make me cry Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well I hope not all of them.” Tere tells him, “well no no not all of them. Well when the bride enters that church, in that white dress the wedding march starts. I just get all emotional, it touches my heart then I start crying. That’s why I decided to stay here, so I could start making dinner.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well I would love to have joined you but. Dona Ramona asked me, to go pick up some arranged flowers at the flower shop. I’m suppose to take them to the club. Its for the reception party, I’ll take it and come straight back here.” Todoelmundo ask, “so your not going to the church?” Todoelmundo tells her, “no I perfer to come back here to help you prepare the meal. He kisses her, ok I’ll be right back.” Tere tells him, “now be careful don’t speed back or else you might get into an accident.” Todoelmundo tells her, “no relax I’ll come back safe and sound.” He leaves and Tere utters. “Oh girl why did you go to that church. For your suffering, you will always continue suffering.”

At the church, Juana Valentina watches them. Dona Dona glances at everyone. Juana Bautista tells Orlando, “I’ll be right back.” Dona Dona sees her leaving, “now then I’m going to head outside to get a drink. Inside here, its like as hot as hell.” Calixto tells her, “dear do stop mentioning that’s person’s name. You know, the one that we know.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks Ruben over. “Godson come over here, son you look so calm and yet you have too wait 15 more minutes. Right now Maria Delia should be leaving the house.” Ruben tells them, “and Manuel Efe who’s car never fails him.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “what did you say?” Ruben tells him, “oh that Manuel Efe is a very punctual man. They should be leaving the house right now.”

Juana Bautista sits next to Juana Valentina. “You shouldn’t have come. Girl your continue too suffer, its going to get worse.” Dona Dona overhears their conversation. Juana Valentina tells her, “if you had arrived home I would have been dead. I don’t know what sin, I committed because I was born. For god to punish me in this fashion. How is it my fault, that I fell in love with him from the first moment that I saw him. You tell me? I didn’t know he was my brother Juana Bautista. He just appeared, I didn’t know he existed. When I found out, we had the same blood. It was just too late, I was already loving him. How can I not still love him, I will never in my life stop loving him never. Do you hear me, never. If I had been water, I would have been a cloud already. Ruben was the wind, we would then become a river. I would go into Ruben like the sea, we would then be grind together. Then rise once more to become tears. But no we are both human beings, a man and a woman. I am his sister, he is my brother. No magician can cut those cords, this chains that seperates us no. I do love him Juana Bautista. Like the wind loves the air. The river loves the sea. The tillage loves the hole.” Juana Bautista tells her, “don’t continue older sister.” Juana Valentina tells her, “he had nothing to do with Yolanda Del Cabrales because he loved me. I didn’t believe him. He is going to marry Maria Delia, in any moment now. Loving me, and I didn’t believe him. I know where he is standing, there at this very moment. I know he’s saying, my name under his breath. I know that now, he can’t hear me say I love you. I love him, I love him, I love him.”

Juana Bautista utters, “oh Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes Juana Valentina I don’t feel brave. I want to die, I want to die. I do want to just die. For I want and care to die. If I don’t, I’m going to continue living but dead inside. I don’t think, I would be able to do this. I don’t think I continue suffering, I just can’t do it. I just can’t take this anymore. I can’t take this anymore, I just hope and beg that in the next life. There’s no memory of this, in the next life. In the next life one doesn’t die. I will spend my eternity, continue loving Ruben Salguero. I can’t do this anymore.” This breaks Dona Dona’s heart, she begins going down the stairs. As she’s walking back to her chair. She almost faints, and Margarita Cruz holds her up. “Are you feeling alright?” Dona Dona tells her, “oh it must just be the heat.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “the bride should be arriving any moment now.” Dona Dona tells her, “yes its time to take one’s place.” She goes to Ruben and sits down. Calixto asks, “so did you find something too drink?” Dona Dona tells him, “yes sea water that tastes like tears.” Ruben looks up and Todoelmundo drives towards the church.

He runs in and yells out, “the bride has left. She has left, but who knows where she went off too? Everyone gets up and looks over at Todoelmundo. She’s no longer at the house, she left this note. Maria Delia’s mother, hasn’t stopped crying. I’m saying she’s like the ocean, I’m not exaggerating. She couldn’t make it here, and asked me to come here to give this letter too you.” Don Calixto reads the note, “Ruben Calixto forgive me Ruben. Don’t wait for me. Don’t look for me, I have discovered love and I can’t marry you. Goodbye from Maria Delia Espina Conseno. 23 4087 of corozal.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “anything else comparde?” Calixto tells him, “nothing else comparde for a second time this wedding has been cancelled.” Dona Dona faints, everyone screams. Ruben goes on his knees to pray. Juana Bautisa glances at a very happy Juana Valentina. Calixto ask, “now guys carry her to the cars. Careful be careful of her arms.”

Juana Valentina runs home so very happy. Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Valentina you must leave corozal this very minute.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes I know that.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Ruben is free so are you. Nothing is stopping from you two too fall.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes I know.” Juana Bautista tells her, “but this can’t be Juana Valentina. Yes you didn’t have to support the pain at hearing him say. I Ruben accept Maria Delia Espina as my wife. Now your going to leave relaxed, that your going to always be his. Please you must leave right now.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes I know that I know.” Juana Bautista tells her, “right now today.” Juana Valentina hugs and kisses her and tells her. “Yes I do know that.” She happily jumps up and down, “yes I know yes I know.”

Over at the salguero house, Ruben hides his pleasure as he’s changing. Calixto sadly tells him, “son I don’t know exactly what to say.” Ruben tells him, “there’s nothing too say. Maria Delia thought clearly and realized, she just wasn’t that in love with me. That is everything.” He smiles and looks away. Calixto asks, “what do you mean that’s everything. No that’s not everything, I just called Maria Delia’s mother. The poor woman hasn’t stopped crying. She just can’t explain what exactly happened. She said she dressed Maria Delia in her wedding dress. She was so very happy that girl. Then she knew she had left a note written on the table. Plus the crystal tear necklace.” Ruben tells him, “listen last minute she pulled herself back. She decided to leave with her hidden love.” Calixto tells him, “hey Ruben don’t say that. There’s no hidden love, we all knew that once Maria Delia stopped crying her crystal tears. All she thought of, was all her preparations for the wedding. The reception and the invitations, she was so very busy. When did she have the time, to have a hidden love.” Ruben tells him, “oh father lets not ask anymore explinations. Lets just accept the reality.” Calixto asks, “Ruben what’s wrong with you? Its the second time, you have been dumped at the altar. Here you are so very fresh?” Ruben tells him, “old man like Juana Calidad says. It’s what god wants.”

Inside the bedroom, Margarita Cruz is with Dona Dona. “Dona what occured is very painful. But you know more, about those consequences.” Dona Dona tells him, “the consequences are is that my son is still single.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes that is it exactly. You know very well what I’m refering too.” Dona Dona tells her, “no Margarita Cruz you just don’t know. No you don’t know Margarita, I’m sorry that I’m leaving you alone. Its just that, I really need to medidate.” Margarita Cruz asks, “are you going to church?” Dona Dona tells her, “no over to the sewing room. I must medidate and make one decision, but if I ask god he might scold me.”

Back at the pink house, Juana Valentina is packing her belongings. She tells Tere, “I’m happy so very happy and overjoyed. I feel as if the sun is shining upon just me, but Juana Bautista is correct I can’t say here. Because if I do stay here, I will see Ruben. If I see him looking at me, his beautiful eyes shining. I will want him to touch me, and everything will disappear. The blood of Calixto Salguero, that runs through our veins. Of Dona Dona, the priest, even the complete town.” Tere tells her, “oh girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “girl no I’m a woman. Ruben is a man, step-brother or no he’s a man. The only reason I will not fall, is that I must leave right now.” Tere tells her, “I am going with you Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no how can you even think of it. You have todoelmundo, I won’t permit you sacrificing yourself for me.” Tere tells her, “no I won’t permit you leaving on your own daughter.” Juana Valentina smiles and tells her, “but I’m not leaving alone. I am not leaving alone, I’m taking with me the love of Ruben. I’m taking it with me, I will be able to do everything. I will be able to walk, Tere you know what hurts the most. The thing that hurts, most of about all of this. That I doubted him, not believing me when he told me that nothing had occured. With him and that Yolanda Del Cabrales, but well love is like this. Love is the enemy of doubt. I let myself be carried by the ultimate one. Now then I’m leaving, with the pain thats in my soul. All of it but, love is also sacrifice Tere. Yes love is sacrifice, I can’t let Ruben confronts. His parents, his sisters, his friends. Or the entire town, I just can’t do this. Well the love that we feel, we both feel it him and me. One thing is too feel, the other is too accept. I know that nobody accepts nothing. Not even you, who loves me so very much isn’t that right.” Tere tells her, “you can’t even image it.”

Juana Valentina tells her, “I know if I stayed here it would be an inferno. Yes but being far away, it will be a life of. Regret and all of that. Regrets, what if Dona Dona died of pity. Don Calixto couldn’t lift his head. My sisters and their husbands, would have to leave town. For my embarssment, or no I’ve thought about everything. I’ve analysed everything, and thought when I was up in the chorus room in that church. In one minute, I just wanted to run when I saw him. Run into his arms, telling him. I am yours Ruben and you are mine. Oh could you even image it.” Tere tells her, “just thinking about it scares me so my daughter.” Juana Valentina tells her, “at least thinking that he was mine and I was his. I realized well no, it just can’t be. But that is why, I really must leave Tere. If I see Ruben smiling, I start smiling well then I will give myself too him Tere. I will give myself too him, without any doubts. Without regrets, without fear no I will give myself too him. Here, and at his house. In his mother’s room, in the center plaza. Where ever, I am liable to give myself too him Terezalsura. Tere is utterly shocked, that is why I am leaving. Oh I can’t even what might occur.” Tere tells her, “ok I’ll help you pack my love.”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona stares at the picture of Francisco. “If you were in heaven, you could have at least given me a suggestion Francisco. Oh you were such a flirt, and playboy. I think your going to spend a long time in purgatory. A suggestion, the only one you can ask for a suggestion. Is you Dona, she nods and yells out. Ophelia girl come over here. Go get me Todoelmundo. No matter where he is, tell him its not urgent but he must come. Advise him, he might lose his trip.” Ophelia uttes, “alright.” Dona Dona utters, “here you were trying to buy time Dona. The only thing you don’t have, well is time. That isn’t what you have.”

In Ruben’s bedroom, he’s putting on some cologne. Calixto ask, “so are you going to go see your sisters?” Ruben tells him, “you see they weren’t there outside that church. So I don’t know, what they must be thinking. Alright see you later father.” Calixto stops him, “Ruben come over here. Juana Valentina wasn’t at the church right?” Ruben tells him, “no father he wasn’t so I’ll see you later.” Calixto tells him, “neither was Manuel Efe.” Ruben tells him, “well that is what has me quite worried.” Calixto asks, “yes and why does it worry you so.” Ruben tells him, “well he’s such a puctual man and for him not to show up at the church early. Well it has me worried, ok father bye. We will continue talking later.” Calixto stops him, “Ruben.”

Judge Geremias Guerra arrives and grabs him. Taking him over to the living room. “Oh I’m glad that I found you, oh when you left what a whirlwind that church was. We really didn’t get a chance too talk. I am stunned.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “we both are.” Ruben utters, “as I am.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “Maria Delia’s mother is putting out a demand. But the thing is, she doesn’t know who the devil to sue.” Calixto tells him, “remember don’t mention you know who.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “now then Ruben give me all the details. Anything you might have, give me all your suspicions and your assumptions.” Ruben asks, “godfather can’t we do it later?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “no no Maria Delia’s mother has put out a formal bulletin. For the disappearance of her daughter. The police are going to interrogate you.”

Over at the pink house, the girls are sitting by the dinning room. Juana Bautista tells them, “our older sister has to leave the house and corozal.” Juana Manny asks, “wait a minute what are you saying?” Juana Bautista tells her, “she is leaving today Juana Manny.” The girls all utter, “what do you mean she’s leaving just like that?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I am going to tell you.” Juana Calidad asks, “but what?” Juana Bautista tells them, “I am asking and begging you don’t try to stop her. I am not going into explinations. I am asking you do not detain her. She has very powerful reason, why she has too do this.”

Upstairs Juana Valentina tells her. “Now then Tere, I am heading back to Barranquilla. Please don’t tell anybody, absolutely nobody. Not even my sisters, for they can let it slip. They might tell Ruben, do you hear me.” Tere asks, “what I don’t understand Juana Valentina. What are you going to do in Barranquilla? Just tell me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “now you know you don’t ever have to worry about me. For I’m not going to die of hunger. Now I will call you, when I get myself fixed up. But please, Terezalsura what’s more important don’t tell anybody. Don’t let this slip.” Tere tells her, “no I won’t tell anybody. I just don’t like you leaving alone Juana Valentina. This just scares me, what happens if something happens too you you tell me. Now why don’t we do this, ask Todoelmundo too take you back to Barranquilla.” Juana Valentina ask, “him taking me all the way to Barranquilla in his little motor-cycle Tere. You are absurd and crazy.” Tere tells her, “don’t ask that sacrifice to your future husband don’t be an idiot.” Tere tells her, “I just don’t know Juana Valentina I just don’t know.” Juana Valentina ask, “then what do you want then? For me to stay here, that I don’t care if the priest condemns me.” Tere tells her, “no no no girl I’ll help you close your suitcase.” Juana Valentina tells her, “alright I’ll take one last look around here.”

Over at the salguero house, the police are getting Ruben’s statement. “That is all that I know, well plus that the bride left the note on her bed. Then she disappeared, well then if that’s everything.” Judge Geremias Guerra stops him, “no wait the thing is the detective needs to know. Who do you suspect, might have Maria Delia Espina Canseno. Well could have run away with?” Ruben tells him, “I just don’t know godfather. I don’t suspect anybody, now then I must…” Margarita Cruz tells him, “wait son you had to have an idea who she must have been seeing or no?” Ruben tells her, “no Margarita no what so ever. I don’t know if she ever saw another man. Well then if that’s everything.” The detective asks, “now then when was the last time you saw her?” Ruben tells him, “oh dear lord last night. I took her home, she didn’t allow me too enter. She was afraid I was going to see the wedding dress. You know its bad luck, to see the bride wearing the dress. Before the day of the wedding. Well then if that’s all.”

The mayor arrives, “good afternoon.” Ruben utters, “oh man.” The mayor utters, “good afternoon too you all. Well I am first authority of corozal, I am here to give my condolences. To the family Salguero.” Calixto tells him, “thank you.” The mayor tells him, “well for this painful which has touched us profoundly. I am giving you a big hug Ruben.” Ruben utters, “oh thanks.” Margarita Cruz sees todoelmundo, and tells the men. “Excuse me, now then come with me.” Calixto tells him, “we appreciate this kind gesture.” Ruben ask, “but nobody has died mayor.” The mayor him, “hey we just don’t know that. This has yet to be proven.” Ruben tells him, “well you all prove it I’m leaving.” The mayor tells him, “wait wait you can’t leave. The muncipal committee, are coming to give you their condolences.”

Dona Dona tells Todoelmundo, “go to the pink house. Wait don’t go. Yes go to the pink house, forget it.” Todoelmundo asks, “so I lost a trip?” Dona Dona tells him, “yes you lost it.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well then excuse me.” Dona Dona tells him, “no wait they won they won. Go to the pink house, bring me all the juanas.” Todoelmundo tells her, “not all of them will fit on my bike.” Dona Dona tells him, “bring them by two or three. You bring me all of them. Tell them its a life or death decision. Yes its a issue of life or death, for Juana Valentina Salguero.” Todoelmundo tells her, “excuse me.” Margarita Cruz asks, “Dona you don’t want to tell me what’s wrong with you?” Dona Dona tells her, “if you were able to wait 25 years. You can wait a half an hour more.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina is with the girls. “One day I will be able to tell you all the truth, but now is not the right moment. I love you all so very much, every single one of you. Everyone of you do you hear me. I really do wish you all, so much happiness in the world.” Juana Matilde crying tells her, “oh Juana Valentina your not even going to be at our own weddings.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’m sorry but I just can’t. No I can’t I must get going, its the truth.” Tere tells her, “well right now right now girl.” Juana Matilde tells her, “I am shocked.” Juana Calidad tells her, “wait a minute.” Juana Bautista ask, “where are you going Juana Calidad.” Tere tells her, “oh dear lord.” Juana Matilde crying tells her, “don’t leave Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina is trying hard to stop her tears from flowing. “Juana Matilde please I really must get going. You have Miguel.” Juana Matilde tells her, “but we will all miss you.” Juana Calidad returns, “Juana Valentina this is for you a cross of sor juana inez de la cruz. You take this, so you can be protected.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes put it on Juana Calidad.” Once its on, she hugs Juana Calidad. Tere tells her, “put it on we should be going now.” Juana Valentina tells her, “alright Tere give me a minute. Thank you. Now when I arrive, well I will call to tell you I am fine ok.” Tere tells them, “yes she will now then lets go.” Juana Matilde stops her, “listen you wait right here if she leaves punch her. She returns with her favorite kitty. Look this cat, my uncle made for me. So he could alway accompany me, where ever I was going too go. Take it with you, so it can accompany you. So you can remember me. Remember I’m the youngest sister.”

(I love that wooden kitty.)

Tere repeats, “ok now lets go.” Juana Valentina hugs her and tells her, “no I don’t need nothing to remind me of you.” Juana Matilde tells her, “what do you mean no.” Juana Manny tells her, “wait Tere let me give her my gift.” Tere utters, “umda its going to be late.” Juana Matilde tells her, “no enough stop reminding her she has to leave. Don’t you see, we are going to miss her.” Juana Manny tells her, “now this you gave to me on my first fight. You keep this, use it whenever you are going to do exercises. Its my favorite.” Juana Valentina gives her a hug as well. “Now then I should get going. Oh I can’t stop crying.” Tere tells her, “alright now lets get going.” Juana Matilde grabs her as does Juana Calidad. “Juana Valentina don’t leave me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “now you two please. Behave yourselves.” Juana Manny tells her, “now call when you arrive there. Do you hear me.” Tere yells out, “now come on we have to leave now.” Juana Valentina then hugs Juana Bautista.” Tere tells them, “ok lets go.”

Todoelmundo shows up, “wait I don’t know where your going but. You can’t go.” Juana Matilde and Juana Manny ask, “what happened Todoelmundo?”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona is shocked. The livingroom, is full of people. “What is going on here, why are they all here?” Ruben tells her, “they all want to give their condolences. First it was the mayor, and the entire municipal committiee. Now its the society ladies of corozal.” Dona Dona tells him, “what the devil are all of them doing here?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “don’t mention that word.” Ruben tells her, “they are here to give their condolences. But in the end, they are only here to gossip. Mother I’m taking off.” Dona Dona tells him, “you aren’t going anywhere. Now we’re going to get rid of all these people. Help me Margarita, and you are going to wait for me in my room.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “alright.”

Back at the pink house, the girls have sat back down. Juana Matilde asks, “is that what she said.” Todoelmundo tells her, “exact words this is a life and death decision for Juana Valentina Salguero.” Juana Valentina tells her, “salguero?” Juana Manny tells her, “but she’s a Echenique.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes that’s so true.” Todoelmundo tells her, “but that is exactly what she said.” Tere tells him, “listen I’m sorry for Dona Dona but my girl must leave right now.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen this life and death situation sounds quite grave.” Tere tells them, “dear lord girl if my girl stays its quite grave.” Everyone then starts talking all at once. Juana Matilde tells them, “Juana Calidad has a point. No Terezalsura don’t take her anywhere. Hey man Todoelmundo, tell her who owns this house.” Tere tells her, “no we have to leave.” Juana Calidad tells him, “hey look at this house. This is Dona Dona’s house, we have to listen too her.” Juana Valentina ask, “now what?” Juana Bautista tells her, “now what? I guess you are going, to have to go through with your instincts? Use your instincts.”

In the end all the girls, are now over at the salguero’s house. Juana Manny asks, “now what mother what is going on?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “I am also quite intrigued as well.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen Dona Margarita its just that I feel very strange almost nervous like.” Juana Calidad tells her, “I’m now getting scared Dona Margarita.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “now girls calm down.” Juana Manny tells them, “she’s coming.” Dona Dona asks, “where are the other two?” Juana Valentina arrives with Juana Bautista. “Good afternoon Dona.” Dona Dona tells her, “now then Margarita do me a favour double lock the house. I don’t want any interruptions.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes Dona.” Juana Valentina ask, “this sounds to be like a locked down seno?” Dona Dona tells her, “yes it is but its more for not being interrupted. I asked to close those doors, so I don’t go out running. Ruben Calixto, Judge Guerra, Calixto you may all come out now.” Ruben glances at Juana Valentina.

Dona Dona tells them, “now then lets all sit down. Dona Dona asks, why are you smiling?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m smiling for the fortune of destiny is fantasy. You are of course judge are a taurus?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “yes.” Juana Bautista asks, “you undoubtly seno a leo?” Dona Dona tells her, “yes.” Juana Bautista tells them, “curiosly all of us are sitting almost exactly in line with the zodiac. In accordance with our signs.”

Dona Dona gets up, “now then I’m going to talk and don’t want any interrupts. If one says one word, before I am finished. I’ll leave you as a rooster with a espinoza. Or like capone, this fight was won bye love. Your’s Ruben Calixto, and yours Juana Valentina. The two simply glance at her then one another. Now the issue went like this. It was many years ago, I had married Calixto and was on my quest to find out why I couldn’t get pregnant. As you all know, I practically traveled around the world. I thought it might have been Mr. Salguero. But in the end it was me, because Mr. Salguero created all of you.” Calixto tells her, “listen Dona.” Dona Dona tells him, “remember the rooster capone Mr. Salguero. When we returned to corozal, by body didn’t want to give any children. No doctor, or witch doctor. No saint, or sea water nor miracles. I wanted to die, for I knew how much you desired a son. My love for you was so great. I needed to show you this by having a son, how much I did love you. It was a need that went out of my soul Calixto. It was so profoundly in my soul, its where love grew. I couldn’t, my soul craved it but my body wasn’t up too it. Then one day, a bunch of italian fellows arrived.”

Dona Dona moves around the room. “Just like gypsys, they came to make a movie. They hired the ranch, to film a scene for their movie. I meet them, because I was living on that ranch. Those italian’s would come every half a day. They came from Barranquilla too work. One was named Geovani Lateto, the other was a very handsome man a famous italian actor. His name was Francisco Guadeske. He was very handsome, very charming. So beautiful as my son.” Calixto gets up and utters, “Dona?” Dona Dona then sits back down and tells him, “remember the rooster capone. Then your beloved grandmother juana, worried that her new daughter in law. Well she was sterile, suggested that I called for a woman named Macarea. She was very beautiful, but more importantly. She was known as a medician women, who was great with herbs and such. She said my mother in law that Macarea was the cure to my problems. Yes she was the cure and solution. She locked me up for fourty days, I ate only different broaths. Rice with different herbs and spices. I would bathe in a special iron cualdron. With the waters of a river, using a special rock. Calixto would visit me every seven days. Macarea would then escort him out, but after those forty days nothing happened. Macarea met Francisco Guadeske, the man that gave you his seed.” Ruben utters, “mother?”

Dona Dona goes to him and tells him, “remember the rooster. You are identical too him, his life stamp. She then goes over to Calixto. I so loved you so very much. I felt so guilty Calixto, you wanted a son so I gave you one. Dona Dona glances at Juana Valentina. But as you know very well, Juana Valentina. A father isn’t just a man, that gives birth too one. But raises you as well. She then sits back down. Well in the end, Macarea she got pregant. That bastard of Francisco, when the movie was over he just up and left her. He had promised to take her back to europe. He promised her matrimony, he promised her gold and everything else. But that bastard flew away. He only showed up 25 years later, to give his son a letter. Plus attacted was a photo of his, that Geovani Loteto brought with him.” Juana Valentina excited asks, “so seno does that mean?” Dona Dona tells her, “remember the rooster goes for you as well. Now then on the day Francisco died. He asked his friend Geovani Loteto, to promise him to tell you the truth.”

Dona grabs Calixto’s hand and holds him tight. “Well I just couldn’t permit it, that Juan Ruben Calixto. Would be taken away from us. For he is the bond of our love. Our son of our youth, the son of our middle age. Plus our son of our old age Mr. Calixto Salguero. My proof of love for you. My only definate proof of my love.” Calixto a bit confused asks, “so it was I who couldn’t conceive?” Dona Dona touches his face and tells him, “no you made five children just look at them. Five daughters, from five women that loved you. I love you so very much, I was the only one that couldn’t. She gets back up and continues. Calixto was away on business, for about eight months. I spent days on that ranch cursing my existance. I was ready to tell my husband, well that we should end our marriage because I couldn’t conceive. For him to find another, so he could get a child. I would end up returning to sahagun. Dona Dona goes back to Ruben and touches his hands. Seven months and half, with the italian men gone. You were born, Macarea four days later passed away of a high septic fever. But before she died, she looked into my eyes. She grabed my hand with strength, she looked at me and told me. Dona Dona I am leaving you my son. Take care of him, like he was your own son. He is the son made out of love, not of urges. That is what she said, she then died with her eyes open. As if she was begging me to keep this promise. Since then I have considered you my son.

Dona Dona once again goes to Calixto and sits down. “When you returned from your trip. My love grew, I put him into your arms I baptised you Juan. In honor of your grandmother. With a spindle of rice, and painted on the birthmark of a small mustard fish. Because your father, yes your father. He’s a good honest hardworking man. Collaborated that this was true, that you were his son. I am sorry that I couldn’t nurse you, for you see I was empty. I am sorry, I couldn’t give you birth forgive me. I couldn’t nurse you, please forgive me. My insides were empty, please forgive me. I just didn’t want to lose you. Please forgive me. She glances at Ruben. You are my son Ruben, I love you as such. You will always be my son, even if you don’t want to call me mother tomorrow. This truth would have never been found out. I fought with all my strength, that this wouldn’t be found out. Love won me over, you won me over Juana Valentina. Your love for my son won me over. You as well Ruben, for the love you had for Juana Valentina. I knew a mother, always knows these things. There is no blood that unites you two. You are free to love one another, well what ever happens from this day out. Neither of you are siblings from no part what so ever.”

The girls are all balling their eyes out, Juana Valentina goes on her knees over to Dona Dona. “Thank you seno Dona thank you.” Dona Dona gets up and daps the tears away and tells her. “Dear you don’t have to go on your knees. Now get up, the one that has too go on her knees is me.” She then hugs Juana Valentina, as she continues to cry.

Dona Dona takes Margarita’s hand, “see Margarita everyone has a hidden secret. Well then everything has been told, and now that’s that. There’s just no more words to say Mr. Salguero.” Calixto coughs and dabs tears from his eyes then he tells her. “I think I need a rum.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes serve me one as well. For I really need one.” Juana Matilde crying tells her, “I will also join you. Well of me, it seems to me quite hard.”

Juana Bautista is now hugging Juana Valentina. With love in her eyes for her son, Dona Dona goes towards Ruben. Ruben tells her, “I love you mother. I love you mother.” Dona Dona gives him a big hug. “Oh son give me your hand. She puts it on Juana Valentina’s, now then please do forgive me if you can. Just as I have forgiven Mr. Salguero. Then she goes over to Calixto, Calixto I am so very tired so very tired.” Calixto holds Dona Dona and tells her, “now then forget about being tired we have to unite the bed. I want to marry you again.” Dona Dona ask, “what?” Calixto tells him, “I want to repeat at the altar how much I do love you. I will love you my entire life. More so than ever, my soul love. My Dona Cuadradro.” Dona Dona hugs him even tighter. Juana Calidad blesses herself. Margarita Cruz hugs Juana Manny. While Juana Valentina hugs Ruben.

The days quickly pass, at the music salon. Juana Matilde is doing her la la la’s with her professor. “Wait your telling me, that Ruben and Juana Valentina? What they are not what? What that Dona Dona is what Juana Matilde? Wait one more minute, Dona Dona what?” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey professor one minute. I’m in class, your not suppose to interrupt. Listen you asked me three questions, that I can’t answer just yet. Listen I’ll finish the class, and tell you what occured.”

At the pink house, Mauricio laughs. “What do you mean they are not friends. Oh come on, both of them are Don Calixto’s siblings.”Juana Calidad tells him, “just let me explain too you how this all came about. Now then, Dona began to tell us…”

At the art studio, Orlando tells her. “The senora had this story hidden for all this time?” Juana Bautisa tells him, “yes all these years.” Orlando ask, “well how did it all come about?” Juana Bautista tells him, “well she told all us and Juana Valentina…” Orlando asks, “so what did Ruben say? What did Don Calixto say?” Juana Bautisa utters, “well Ruben and Don Calixto. Listen professors, are supose to listen but you aren’t.” Orlando tells her, “well then tell me then.” Juana Bautista smiles and tells him, “ok let me tell you.” Orlando tells her, “well do it quickly.”

At the beauty salon, Octavio utters. “Rubencho isn’t the son of Dona Dona nor Don Calixto. No those are your lies Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells him, “well Dona Dona was moved by the love of Juana Valentina had for Ruben. She decided to tell the truth.” Octavio yells out, “Ruben and Juana Valentina in love? Oh no now your imagination, went flying by my firecracker forgive me.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen you let me talk. I must tell you everything. So just let me talk ok.”

Over at Juana Valentina and Ruben’s place. They are together, hugging and kissing each other. Ruben tells her, “they said that in corozal angels didn’t fall. Now then what is your name?” Juana Valentina tells him, “Juana Valentina Echenique and yours?” Ruben tells her, “Ruben Salguero without your blood but with the same last name.” Juana Valentina ask, “and who’s playing?” Ruben tells her, “its the sound of an accordion.” Juana Valentina ask, “and what do those notes from the accordion say?” Ruben tells her, “I love you. I love you like I’ve never loved another in my entire life. They kiss, the notes from the accordion never are mistaken.” Juana Valentina tells him, “it does sound very beautiful. Its very nice knowing that someone, knows how to play an instrument. A guitar, the clarinet, the flute. It does sound very beautiful, it seems they put their own souls to make it sound like that. Well if I decided to play an instrument, it would sound horrible. I’m serious, yes they do put their soul into every note. Please touch me, touch me like a note from a guitar. A clarinet touch me. He touches her body, and she calls out his name. Ruben.” Ruben tells her, “Juana Valentina without a same blood nor the last name.” She laughs, and then they kiss.

(Isn’t there a song, that has those lyrics. Touch me like a guitar or something?)

Over at the pink house, Todoelmundo is reading a printed flyer. “Calixto Salguero Tenorio and Dona Cuadradro de Salguero. Inform everyone in this town that. Juana Valentina Echeinque and Juan Ruben Calixto Saluguero. Are children from different fathers and mothers. For this reason, their relationship thus has no sinful conotations. They will be permitted to marry. The senora and senor De Salguero. Do now want any hidden agendas, with this situation.” Tere ask, “hidden agendas what to write something like that?” Todoelmundo tells her, “Dona Dona told me that word by word. That is what I had made up. Well then let me continue, bad commentary and unintentional rumors. Neither sinful rumors, signed by a judge and notary written by Calixto Salguero and Dona Cuadradro De Salguero. Etc, etc, etc.” Tere asks, “so you had to put it all over town right?” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes in fact she paid me 50 for each one that I put up.”

In the salguero bedroom, the bed has been put back together. Calixto asks, “but Dona why did you do it?” Dona Dona tells him, “I just didn’t want to hear any bad rumors or bad gossip all over town.”Calixto tells her, “well just look at this isn’t it really too much?” Dona Dona tells her, “listen people only believe what’s writtened. If someone is hidden something, well then its not published. Why do you think the politicians, are so careful. With what they are saying. Or what is written in the newspapers. Now then people can think, what ever they want. But they better not come into this house. With the gossip, that Ruben and Juana Valentina have incenturous loves. Oh no sir ree.” Calixto kisses her, “oh your the grandest of them all Dona. Hey when did this love begin with this two kids?” Dona Dona tells him, “Valentina and Ruben? I’m guessing it was that first time that they met. Oh how they suffered, and it was all of my fault.” Calixto tells her, “no it was our fault Dona our fault.” Dona Dona tells her, “no Calixto even though you have five sins. I am more guilty, I held on so tight trying to keep this secret, I was very much mistaken. Why because, I was just so afraid that I was going to lose you.” Calixto hugs her once more, “come over here so you decided to lie to me. Saying that you didn’t love me.” Dona Dona tells him, “but your five daughters hurt me so very much Calixto. Just put yourself in my place, it was that they reminded me. Well of my painful curse, that my body couldn’t plant your seed.” Calixto tells her, “oh Dona Dona Dona. So you had planned on dying with that secret?” Dona Dona tells him, “well yes I wouldn’t give you the chance of not loving me.” Calixto tells her, “so you took the risk?” Dona Dona tells him, “yes for me to go too my grave with this secret. I would have left with a really big regret.” They then hug once another.

The guys are at the dolorsa drinking it up. Octavio sings a song about meeting the juanas, and how it changed all of their lives.Don Calixto and Dona Dona, plus Margarita Cruz and Judge Geremias Guerra. Are going around the town, the men buy the ladies cotton candy. They are all very much in love.

(Love Cotton Candy.)

While the girls are also over town, singing and eating cotton candy. Then they all meet up at the dolorosa. Miguel sings to Juana Matilde, they then dance. While Tere then sings to Todoelmundo, then they kiss.

Days pass and Maria Delia returns to corozal. She heads straight to see the salguero’s. “Maria Delia has arrived. Daaa isn’t anybody here? Maria Delia has arrived.” Dona Dona and Calixto come out of their room. They both utter, “Maria Delia?” Maria Delia tells them, “oh I was so ashamed and embarssed returning to corozal. I didn’t want to face you all, but I told myself I just had too do it. For you all were so very good towards me. You were all so respectful and generous. Well with that reason alone, you deserved an explanation.” Manuel Efe enters as well, “I have arrived.” Dona Dona and Calixto utter, “Manuel Efe?” Manuel Efe utters, “me.” Maria Delia coldly tells him, “Manuelefito the gifts we brought for them from europe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes of course. I forgot them, they are in the car in the back seat.” Maria Delia tells him, “now what are you waiting for to bring them here my life?” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes my Maria Dalieta.” He leaves the house, and she tells them. “Oh he’s an adorable man, but he’s a bit slow to think. Now hurry it up Manuel Efe.” He simply utters, “yes yes.” Maria Delia ask, “is Ruben around? Well him most of all, needs to listen too my explanation.” Calixto tells her, “well Ruben isn’t here. Yes and we all deserve a great explination.” Manuel Efe returns, “now then here are your gifts. We bought them well on, well on our…” Dona Dona tells them, “in europe.” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes on our trip on our honeymoon.” They both utter, “honeymoon?” Maria Delia tells them, “well Manuelifeto and I are wife and husband.” Manuel Efe tells her, “its suppose to be said husband and wife.” Maria Delia tells him, “well that is what you think my life. So when will Ruben be returning.”

Juana Valentina and Ruben, are making out at the dolorosa. Tere sings them another song. The girls are dancing around with their partners. Gualberto is sad but high fives Poncho.

Back at the salguero house, Maria Delia begins her tale. “Well then on that fateful day. I was dressed to go to the church. Manuel Efe had picked me up.” Manuel Efe start talking, “yes remember that is what we in the end decided on doing. I was going to pick up Maria Delia.” Maria Delia shuts him up, “don’t interrupt me Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe utters, “yes dear.” Maria Delia tells them, “well I looked at him he looked at me. We looked at one another, then we daaa. It was like a lighting struck, love was there. He was in front of me, I fully understood I didn’t know what love was. So that is why I couldn’t marry Ruben.” Manuel Efe angrily stares at her. Calixto asks, “so you just flew?” Manuel Efe tells them, “well literaly did. From Maria Delita’s house, we headed straight to the airport. We took my plan and began flying.” Maria Delia tells them, “yes we then flew atop of the clouds. The blue sky all around us, oh it was so very marvelous. That is why, I always was insisting that Rubensito bought a plane.” Manuel Efe gives her a drink. “Hey try it, its just like you like it. Now then try some.” Maria Delia tells him, “thank you my lovesito.”

Dona Dona tells them, “well what you are telling us is a story like no other. Its just so surprising, I have known Manuel Efe ever since he was a child. But for you to notice him, on the very day of your wedding.” Manuel Efe tells her, “it was like a arrow aunt. That is why the symbol of love is a cupid. That little cupid shooting his little arrow.” Maria Delia tells him, “Manuelfito.” Manuel Efe utters, “sorry.” Maria Delia tells him, “remember what we discussed. You go on and on, you become quite annoying.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes my dear Maria Delia.” Maria Delia tells him, “here take this its too cold. Now then I don’t regret escaping with Manuelifeto. We are very happy, isn’t that right my life.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes my Maria Delita.” Maria Delia tells them, “we go on the plane three times a month.” Calixto asks, “now wait so your mother was in accordance with what you did. Did she at least see you two take off?” Maria Delia tells him, “no way Don Calixto for absoltuely nothing. Nobody noticed, when we both escaped. Nobody found out nothing, all I had time was. Was too leave a small note explaining things. Of our situation, oh daaa. Oh wait now thinking clearly, yes there was someone. It was a tall handsome man, he was dressed all in white.”

Juana Valentina and Ruben return. “Hey everyone were getting married on the 12th.” Juana Valentina asks, “hey where is everybody. They then see Manuel Efe. Manuel Efe?” Ruben utters, “Maria Delia?” Manuel Efe gets up, “come into my arms cousin. Or maybe I’ll go too yours. Daaa permit me to greet you Juana Valentina.” Ruben asks, “what are you two doing here. So where were you two?” Maria Delia tells him, “well we have come by well to explain things. To ask you for forgiveness.” Manuel Efe laughing tells them, “are love was like a rafaga. Daaa yes as soon as I saw her dressed as a bride. It was like an avalanche.” Maria Delia grabs his hand, “dear sometimes you do go on and on with your talking. Even when you talk in french, nobody understand you.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes you are right dear. Do forgive me.” Maria Delia tells them, “well what occured is hey wait. What did you say, when you entered this house?” Ruben repeats, “we’re getting married on the 12th.” Juana Valentina tells them, “yes on the same day as all of my sisters. Tere and Todoelmundo, hey what do you think? Hey good idea right?” Dona Dona happily tells them, “yes the same day as Margarita Cruz with the judge.” Calixto tells her, “plus the same day as us were also getting remarried.” Juana Valentina tells them, “that’s great.” Manuel Efe and Maria Delia are very confused and simply utter. “What?” Manuel Efe asks, “with your permission I’m going to ask one single question. What do you mean both of you, are going to get married? Or did that affair, with that italian fellow come out?” Dona Dona tells him, “your aunt nothing. I can tell you a short tale, or a longer one. Like someone said, in any case its a story of love.” She stretches her hands and happily stares at her love ones.

Over in sincelejo Yolanda is back to normal. Manuel Efe has gone over to see her. “Well let me tell you regarding Juana Valentina and Ruben is such a story. Let me tell you, well really at this stage of my life I really don’t care.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well me either I’m now a married man.” Yolanda asks, “you got married Manuel Efe? So who was victim?” Manuel Efe asks, “do you believe in the devil jolly?” Yolanda tells him, “well no.” Manuel Efe tells her, “then your not going to believe what I’m going to tell you.” Yolanda tells him, “now come over here for you have me quite intrigued. Hey I’m not going to do nothing too you.” Manuel Efe tells her, “what occured is this. Everyone thought that the devil had left corozal. But he was still there, in fact that bastard was waiting for me. He recalls that day, when he went to pick up Maria Delia. He put her in the car, and tells her. Give the groom a kiss. I looked up and there he was. Listen if you say, who you say you are. Leave me, go from this challenge. I will marry her, but I’m not going to give you my soul. Daaa, then I got in that car and drove away.” Yolanda tells him, “oh come on a man as cultured as you. Raised in the exterior, believes you made a deal with the devil? Oh don’t even think that.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well in this tropical place I learned. To expect the unexpected, well then and you what? The last time I talked too you, well you were pretty bad. Bald, your nails didn’t stop growing. The cows gave water, you couldn’t pronouce the h. Plus you had that uncontrollable hiccups. Yes you were really bad, I am repeating well not to say nothing else.”

Yolanda tells him, “don’t even remind me. It makes me quite sick. You know what, I think that being regretful and asking for forgiveness Manuel Efe. Well I think that by doing so, I was able to release seven years of bad luck. Lesson was learned.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well very good then I better go. My wife is waiting for me, well goodbye jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “hey do me a favour tell Juana Valentina and Ruben Calixto. I really do wish them, the best happiness in the world. Yes from the heart.” Manuel Efe asks, “you?” Yolanda tells him, “yes me well yes.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well then goodbye.” Yolanda tells him, “be good.” Manuel Efe tells her, “none of our plans worked eh?” Yolanda tells him, “not one of our willy coyote plans came true.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes but at least we had a delicious time.” Yolanda tells him, “yes.” Manuel Efe tells her, “my plans were brillant. But not one worked.” Yolanda tells him, “yes we can discuss that later. But you know what I’m thinking.” Manuel Efe asks, “what?” Yolanda tells him, “we were fighting against love and that fight. Nobody wins it.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes that is true.” Yolanda tells him, “ok be well bye. Once he’s gone she utters. Man was that a great lesson Juana Valentina.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina tells the girls her story. “Oh you can’t even image, you just can’t image how much I suffered. Well because I loved him so, to see him everything. But I also suffered, for I didn’t want you to find out. The only one’s that knew, was Juana Bautista and Tere. Oh thank god that has passed.” Tere tells them, “let me tell you it was horrible.” Juana Calidad takes her hand and tells her, “Juana Valentina it terrorized me thinking how much you must have suffered. Well when I told you I was in love with Ruben.” Juana Valentina tells her, “the truth is I was worried about you Juana Calidad. I didn’t want you to go through, what I had been going through. It was just horrible, well you all know.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well I understand why Juana Valentina didn’t tell us. For it was just terrible, just image it without knowing it. Well in the end they we thought they were half siblings. Well all of those things, umda to fight an impossible love. Worse than fighting Robusta Coronada, oh no boxer.” Juana Manny tells her, “I wouldn’t have wanted to be in my older sister’s place. Yes that is the truth.” Juana Bautisa tells them, “you know something I am going to give up reading my cards forever.” Juana Valentina asks, “and why not?” Juana Bautista tells them, “because they never wanted to tell me the truth.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes those blasted cards.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey you never read those cards for me.” They she hugs Juana Valentina, and Juana Bautista tells her. “Thank you for looking for me Juana Valentina.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh how divine.” Juana Calidad tells her, “I’m saying the same thing.” Juana Manny pats her leg, “you know we all love you.” Then they all hug Juana Valentina. Juana Valentina tells them, “oh my sisters how much I do love you all.” Juana Matilde utters, “oh how divine.” Juana Calidad utters, “bless the heavens.” Tere happily tells them, “now then girls lets forget the past. We are going to think in that future. The date of our matrimony, is almost upon us.” Then they all clap.

More songs follow, and the girls walking around the town. The mayor tells his assistant. “On sunday I will have a committe meeting. It will be held in the plaza, I will explain to the town how important that people vote. What it means to be a democrate. How the center government has us in its grip. It will be like this, the town of corozal.” The assistant tells him, “mayor you have to reschedule the meeting.” The mayor asks, “and why?” His assistant tells him, “well because the juanas are getting married. Nobody is going to go too your speech.” The mayor utters, “umda.”

Octavio and the guys also walk through town.

Over at the dolorosa, Poncho and Lasador. Are hearing two guys fight. A guy tells another. “I am going to sue you because you have lied too me. For going against my family honour. Its going to be on sunday. The day after that, your going to jail.” Poncho tells him, “hey no sorry to interfere but Don Otereo. Hey can’t we have the demand, the following sunday. The juanas are getting married on sunday.”

Over at the front, some police men are going to do a raid. One of the says, “fine we will do it on sunday.” Another tells him, “commander we can’t. For on sunday for the juanas are getting married. There will be no police in the stations.” The guy says, “oh yes the Juanas are getting married yes that’s true.”

The group then all kiss, beside the water fountain and dance around.

Later Dona Dona and Ruben are together in her bedroom. Ruben is looking at a picture of his father. Both are teary-eyed, Dona Dona asks. “Are you ever going to forgive me son?” Ruben tells her, “oh mother I have already forgiven you. He hugs her, and asks. Well how was my mother?” Dona Dona tells him, “very beautiful. While your father, you don’t have to mention it. She really did love him so very much.” Ruben tells her, “in the letter it says that he also loved her. But he never returned for her.” Dona Dona tells him, “its something that I will never be able to thank him. For all these years, or no I would have lost you.” Ruben tells her, “well neither of them exist. What is important now, is that I always had you and father.” She then hugs him once more. Dona Dona tells him, “oh son now you have Juana Valentina.” Ruben tells her, “yes I will always have her. All I am waiting for, is for the priest to say. I pronounce you husband and wife.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh Ruben Calixto. Don’t be a spoilsport son, you already went to church two times already. The third time you’ll win.” They laugh and hug once more.

Calixto and Ruben arrive home talking amongst themselves. Dona Dona tells him, “son you know very well the groom has too be at the church first. Now hurry and get dressed.” Ruben tells her, “ok mother I’ll go change.” Calixto asks, “Mr. Salguero aren’t you going to join me at the church?” Calixto tells her, “yes I’m entering that church with you. So don’t you forget it. I am also the father of the groom. The godfather of the Judge Guerra, plus the groom myself.” Maria Delia and Manuel Efe show up complaining. “I have told you that scarf doesn’t suit you. Now go back and change it. Go and put on a scarf.” Manuel Efe tells her, “Maria Delita this is the latest that they are wearing in europe.” Maria Delia tells him, “but my life we are not in europe we are in corozal. Oh Dona how are you doing? It seems were going, to have to come back. For Manuel Efeito has to put on a tie. Without it he looks like a corancho.” Manuel Efe tells her, “Maria Delita Maria Delita wearing this scarf is very chic.” Maria Delia yells out, “he you better go and change into a tie. Or the devil, with you.” Manuel Efe gets freaked out, “dear why would you say such a thing.” Maria Delia tells him, “its just an expression.” Manuel Efe yells out, “daaa.” He runs out of the house. Dona Dona tells her, “he left as if the devil was chasing him.” Maria Delia yells out, “Manuel Efe wait for me. Maybe that is what’s wrong with him. Now then Dona Dona, see you later at the church. Now you get back here Manuel Efe. I am talking too you, you better wait right there.” Dona Dona shakes her head and utters, “poor Manuel Efe.”

Outside the crowd has arrived, they see Dona and Calixto getting into an old car. They all clap.

The guys are at the church, Octavio nerviously asks. “Do you think they are going to arrive? Or will it occur like the last two weddings of Maria Delia? First time this guy here, come here to inform us the father of the bride had died. The next time was, that Maria Delia had flew away.” Todoelmundo tells him, “well considering I’m right here. I won’t be reappearing.” Everyone follows Dona Dona and Calixto to the church. Everyone is cheering them on, Calixto utters. “Thank you thank you.” Dona Dona kisses him.

Poncho tells them, “Judge Geremias Guerra and Margarita Cruz have alrrived. They are also the bride and groom.” Ruben is with them as well. Dona and Calixto arrive and enter the church. “Now Dona, if that lighting hadn’t of hit me. We wouldn’t have been celebrating this union. So blessed it that lighting bolt.” Dona Dona tells him, “well if it wasn’t for that lighting. Our lives would have been very relaxed and peaceful Mr. Salguero.” Calixto tells her, “yes but very boring. Now Dona so have you forgive me?” Dona Dona tells him, “yes five against one. You still owe me, four Calixto. Calixto listen, maybe the formula is different. When we got married. So what does one say now?” Calixto tells her, “now Dona don’t you worry. For when the priest asks, if you want to be my wife, for the rest of your life. Just say yes, and nothing else.” Dona Dona ask, “nothing else alright.” Calixto tells him, “oh there’s the carpenter.” Dona Dona tells him, “the uncle yes.” Everyone takes their places.

(I wonder if the people of the church. Are part of the crew, or lucky people who won the lottery to attend the last filming of the show.)

Then the brides arrive, one by one they are wearing the same dress. The only difference is the head dress, and carrying different bouquets. Dona Dona utters, “and they said that in corozal angels didn’t fall from the sky. The guys basically run to their gals. Hey that’s not correct, the grooms have to wait at the altar. The father takes the brides.” Margarita Cruz asks, “and then who takes us then?” She then laughs, Judge Geremias Guerra tells her. “Apart from that, there are eight brides and that’s not usual. Apart what has occured, these last couple of months. Is nothing but unusual.”

(What happened to all those people, that were there before in the pews.)

Manuel Efe and Maria Delia, are stuck on route. For their car has broken down. Manuel Efe reads the french section of the manuel. “Disk player, I need something that will talk about the motor.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh dear Manuelfito hurry it up with that motor. We’re missing the ceremony.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well my european car is very delicate. Well I left it at the mechanic shop in corozal, to touch it. But you know, I don’t know what he did too it Maria Delita.” Maria Delia yells out, “you are useless. I am going to tell you something, if I arrive late to this wedding. Your sleeping on the sofa.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.” Then he heads towards the back and gets a wrench. Maria Delia also tells him, “plus you won’t get what you like for one month. Plus every morning, your going to make me breakfast very early. Listen here I am going to fire that girl. Are you listening too me. Listen everyone is at the wedding, while me Maria Delia Espina because your stupid european car broke down. Isn’t at that wedding oh dear lord.”

Over at the church, Judge Geremias Guerra tells Margarita, “for now and forever Margarita Cruz. Even though forever could be close.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “after I saw you being a judge at that soccer game. That future is far away for you Geremias, for you have a lot of energy still.”

Todoelmundo tells Tere, “for now and forever Terezalsura. With all of my love.” Tere tells him, “yes with all my love as well todoelmundo. Oh Todoelmundo why did you bring that bench?” Todoelmundo tells her, “umda Terezalsura I couldn’t look so short amongst everyone. Plus this bench, will help us in a lot of ocassions.” Tere utters, “Todoelmundo.”

Calixto tells Dona, “32 years of marriage till now for now and forever.” Dona Dona tells him, “if I could have given you a son. I wouldn’t have cared, carrying it in nine months. Or painfully giving birth.” Calixto tells her, “why do we need another child when we have six. Plus we have us two.”

Miguel tells Juana Matilde, “for now and forever Juana Matilde Salguero.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes for now and forever Miguel Tejeros. Only if you never cut my wings. You know something you put on wings, and we can always fly everywhere together forever.”

Orlando tells Juana Bautista, “we met underneath a tent of a fair Juana Bautista. Now look how things turned out, look where we ended up stopping.” Juana Bautista tells him, “for love does everything. Don’t forget that jesus was born, in a manger for love.”

Octavio tells Juana Manny, “remember that tomorrow I have to go to the bank for that loan. So I can open that store.” Juana Manny tells him, “yes but you can leave it for the next week. Your first obligation, is for me to have a son.” Octavio asks, “what?” Juana Manny tells him, “yes sonny and it will be seven more. I’ve never had siblings growing up. I want them all to play games together. Like cat and mouse.”

Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “for now and forever Juana Calidad Salguero.” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes for now and forever Mauricio Fuentelafria. Then she begins kissing him, she stops. Sorry I guess, that is after the blessing right?”

Ruben tells Juana Valentina, “for now and forever Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells him, “since yesterday today and forever eternally. Yes being with you Ruben, I learned that eternity does exist. Yes sir well you know what, I’m never going to tell you that I love you. Well I love you isn’t sufficiant enough. To say how much I really do love you.” Ruben lifts the veil, and starts kissing her.

Before the priest knows it, all the couples are kissing. The priest tells them, “everyone stop kissing. I’m asking you all, do you want too be husband and wife yes or no?” They all yell out, “yes.” The priest tells them, “I declare you all husbands and wives.” Everyone hugs and claps, Calixto yells out. “Hey Lasador play music on your accordian for in here its not a sin.”

Pictures are taken of the couples. Then a group shot of the entire cast.

Ruben is with Calixto and asks. “Are you sure she wasn’t joking around? So my mother wants to see my sisters, plus their boyfriends. The couples, by pairs. All right, I’ll tell them all.” Calixto tells him, “yes and I don’t know why. You can ask her, but maybe this is wishful thinking. But maybe she’s finally accepting them.” Ruben tells him, “yes I’m interpreting the same thing. All that’s left is wondering what they are going to tell them.” Calixto tells him, “I’m going to see what the mayor wants to tell me. He asked me to see him.” Ruben tells him, “but today is Saturday.” Ruben asks, “don’t tell me he’s still insisting on the harvest festival.” Calixto tells him, “yes that is it exactly.” Ruben asks, “wasn’t Margarita and other people in charge of that?” Calixto tells him, “well they would like it if one of your sisters be the queen of the harvest. But Margarita Cruz doesn’t want to interfere with the process. Since she’s one of the mother’s of one of them.” Ruben tells him, “yes I can understand that.” Calixto tells him, “now don’t forget talk to those boys.” Ruben tells him, “sure father. Man I’ve known her since I was born, but still I don’t understand my mother.” He then sits down for breakfast.

At the local restaurant, the girls are there with Juana Matilde’s uncle. “Well that is the sad tale of the fair. So then I returned to to my carpenter job. What surprised me, was seeing the wolf man here. He told me, why he had returned here to corozal and for someone. See the fair was good for something.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh sometimes things are brought to you that you can’t even image.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh yes they are quite in love.” Then a waiter shows up, Juana Matilde tells them. “See us stars, don’t enjoy being bothered by people when were eating. Already people are bothering me asking for my autograph please.” Juana Valentina tells her, “he’s the waiter you idiot.” Juana Matilde utters, “sorry I didn’t see your outfit.” Juana Matilde’s uncle simply laughs. Juana Valentina tells him, “now then what ever you care for. We will get it for you, it doesn’t matter if its expensive or not it will be our treat.” Juana Calidad tells her, “Juana Valentina remember.” Juana Valentina tells her, “now Juana Calidad come on its on honor for us. To have Juana Matilde’s uncle with us. We want to show it too you.” Juana Matilde’s uncle tells her, “well thank you dears.” Juana Valentina tells her, “what ever you want just order.” Juana Matilde tells her, “my uncle wanted a coffee I will have the same. But bring me a cup, with lemon and honey for my sore throat. I want to take care of my voice.” Juana Valentina tells him, “then I want a nice continental breakfast. With a lot of orange juice please.” Juana Manny tells him, “the same except no lemon and honey.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “yes but make mine light.”

Juana Calidad tells him, “the same as they are having.” Then they utter, “thank you.” Juana Valentina asks, “I guess it was pretty strange that I called you. You know to come to the concert.” Juana Matilde’s uncle, tells them, “Well not really for Juana Matilde’s fascination, has always been with music. What did surprise me is that all of you. Well did such a good job as well.” Juana Matilde utters, “yes uncle but did you see all those people. They wanted to congratulate me, oh you did a great job Juana Matilde. They also said a bunch of other things.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “Juana Matilde we were all congratulated.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes all of us.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes but people are very educated. They knew you were a part of the group. Well they also congratulated them. But the star and attraction, of the people was me.” Juana Matilde’s uncle tells her, “daughter Corozal still hasn’t taught you is that one should be modest.” Juana Matilde tells him, “no uncle it has nothing too do with being modest. One has to say what one thinks. I really do think, that I made my first real step. In my career, to become a real international singer.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh come on not that either. Don’t go too far.” Juana Matilde tells her, “its this and so much more do you hear me. Plus since were all together, I wanted to tell you something. That when I become famous, and doing my show in New York. I’ll use all my money, and bring all of you there. So you can see New York, and see how the world of the music industry really is. When they see that your related too me. You are going to feel as famous as I am. You will feel, like your somebody in this life. When you see my face in the magazines.” All her bull annoys Juana Manny, she gets up. “Excuse me I’m going to call Octavio.” Juana Calidad tells them, “yes excuse me I’m going to call Mauricio.” Juana Manny tells her, “man that Juana Matilde is unsupportable. Ever since that concert, she’s gotten a big head.” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes I don’t know who’s worse. But neither of them, allow one too talk or too have an opinion.” Juana Matilde continues to rant, “oh yes they will enjoy knowing that I am a very important famous person. Don’t you think so uncle?” Juana Valentina tells her, “calm down calm down.”

At the dolorosa Octavio tells them. “Well I’m glad that I didn’t have to go to that breakfast. With Juana Matilde’s uncle, you know why because my friend here Miguel changes.” Orlando ask, “what do you mean?” Octavio tells him, “Miguel acts like a totally different person when he’s around Juana Matilde’s uncle. He’s more respectful, ceremonial, a true gentlemen.” Miguel tells him, “Octavio well of course I am. Because I owe him some respect.” Mauricio tells him, “well when he’s with the uncle. Its like he’s not breathing.” Miguel tells him, “not another one man.” Poncho gets the phone, “hi Octavio its your girlfriend. Now I’m very happy being single. Its better that one, isn’t being stepped on by people.” Maurico tells him, “the thing is we told our gals to call at this time.” Ruben arrives, and tells them. “Hi guys it seems I’m not the only one. That comes to the dolorosa on Saturday mornings.”

(Ruben shakes everyone’s hand all except poor lasador.)

Poncho tells him, “are you kidding these guys don’t do nothing. If it isn’t with your sisters.” Ruben asks, “so that means your relationships are serious.” Mauricio asks, “yes Rubencho it is but why are you doubting?” Ruben tells them, “hey you don’t have too worry about me. But the one you should be, is my mother.” Miguel asks, “why are you bringing up Dona Dona?” Octavio tells the group, “now they are still with Juana Matilde’s uncle. But they are waiting for us around noon at the pink house.” Orlando tells him, ” alright then.” Mauricio asks, “so Ruben what’s up with your mother.” Ruben tells them, “my mother would like to talk to all of you.” Gualberto asks, “me as well?” Ruben tells him, “no not you Gualberto but the one’s dating my sisters. She would like them, to talk too them in pairs separately.” Gualberto utters, “man I saved myself that.” Ocatvio asks, “wait your mother with all of us?” Ruben tells him, “yes.” Octavio asks, “pairs separately?” Ruben tells him, “yes Octavio.” Mauricio tells him, “come on Octavio don’t you think about anything interesting to really say.” Octavio tells them, “no I’m just surprised that’s all.” Miguel asks, “now Ruben when does Dona Dona want to talk to us?” Ruben tells him, “as soon as possible. Now then guys, I just want to thank all of you. For helping out my sisters yesterday at the concert. I know that you did so much, and you were thanked. So thank you very much.” They utter, “hey no problem.” Orlando tells him, “hey no problem.” Ruben tells them, “well then I’ll leave you with this doubt ok bye.” They utter, “bye Ruben.” Octavio ask, “I wonder why Dona Dona would want to talk to us?” Orlando tells them, “well the thing is I don’t know Dona Dona that well. In fact everything that I’ve heard about her. I’m starting to get scared.” Miguel tells them, “well to let you know. I’d rather talk for hours, to Juana Matilde’s uncle than Dona Dona.” Mauricio tells them, “especially if its with the juanas.” Poncho tells them, “see Gualberto those types of things. Don’t happen if one is dating an older woman.” Gualberto utters, “oh yes that is so very true.” Mauricio tells them “hey a bottle of rum over here.”

(Hey its suppose to be early morning, why would Mauricio be asked for a rum so early in the morning.)

Yolanda tells Manuel Efe, “listen to this apparently the senator couldn’t reach the mayor. The telephone was damaged, when he finally reaches the agriculture fellow. Can you believe he had already gone to the concert. He then simply disappears, and can’t be found. Now then here’s the other matter that happened. My idiot politician friend, went to the concert. They wouldn’t let him in, because he didn’t pay for his ticket. Nor did he have his identification with him. He had left it at home.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes and the juanas all triumphant.” Yolanda tells him, “hey I don’t want to hear it. I heard all about it on the radio.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes but I was stuck seeing it personally. Oh no they were all happy and accepting all those applause. But no this can’t stay like this.” Yolanda tells him, “hey I don’t want to hear anymore. But you know something Manuel Efe. No my life, before your bad luck catches. I’m going to say that the episodes, with the salguero are now in the past. Yes in the past of my life. Yes I really wanted to search vengeance from each of them. But you know what, I’m satisfied in what I achieved. Breaking up the romance between Ruben Calixto and Juana Valentina.” Manuel Efe tells her, “but for me that thorn goes into more into me. Stinging me more and more and more.” Yolanda tells him, “oh my love I really do feel for you. I know that you don’t deserve this. You have worked so very hard for this, but I don’t want to do nothing else.” Manuel Efe tells her, “I have another plan they don’t even know that its working.” Yolanda asks, “another one?” Manuel Efe tells her, “and this one won’t fail.” Yolanda tells him, “permit me to doubt it.” Manuel Efe tells him, “this time around I’ll show you proof.” Yolanda ask, “really now what is this all about?” Manuel Efe tells her, “to divide and conquer. Its a famous word, that’s used in history. Well that is what I’m doing.” Yolanda tells him, “it seems you don’t need me in this.” Manuel Efe tells her, “no I don’t the help I’m getting I already have. She doesn’t even suspect nothing.” Yolanda ask, “who?”

The girls return home, and Maria Delia follows Juana Matilde too her messy room. “Now they told me, how success the concert was for you. I was sad that I couldn’t go but. I have already forgiven Rubensito, for not taking me.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh yes Maria Delia you did miss a great show. You could really think, that you were seeing a great show by Gloria Estefan herself. See this is the dress that I wore. She touch it, well that’s enough. You know I’m going to put it up. Or over by the mirror, so it can be reflected always. No this will now be a relic, to be preserved by historians. Yes from the first concert of the star Juana Matilde Salguero. No fregue, but when I become famous this dress is going to cost a fortune.” Maria Delia tells her, “yes its a shame your sisters really don’t appreciate your talents Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde asks, “what do you mean?” Maria Delia tells her, “oh girl don’t tell me you haven’t been noticing. That every one of them are acting like they are the superior ones.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes Maria Delia I have noticed something. Well I don’t know, you tell me what exactly is going on.”

Juana Calidad is in her room, and looks at her accounts. “Now then we spent 5000 on the breakfast. The rest of the 2000, 77000 before we made that trip to tulo. The money that Charlie Zaa gave us, well that is in the form of a cheque. Ruben hasn’t even cashed yet so, oh but why do I have more than 30000. Oh dear lord, what’s going on. Could it be Manuel Efe again, no but at what time? He was with us the entire time. Maybe it was him, I did leave the room when I made the milkshakes. No I’m going to get this doubt out of my head.”

Juana Calidad gathers the group, “now then what I have too say is very important.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “I have advised Juana Matilde, but she’s not on her way but she’s with Maria Delia.” Juana Valentina asks, “come on Juana Caliad what is all this mystery.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen we’re going to wait till Juana Matilde shows up.” Juana Matilde asks, “I’m here so what’s going on?” Maria Delia tells them, “now I would love to stick around here all day. But really I can’t, I have to chose the colors of the wall for my new house. It will be ready, for when Rubensito and I return from our honeymoon.” Juana Bautista tells her, “oh Maria Delia that’s so nice for you. You will have a nice life.” Maria Delia tells them, “yes its a big house I plan on having six children. So we will all fit inside, now I must really leave goodbye.” They utter, “bye Maria Delia.”

When she’s gone Juana Valentina asks, “now then what’s going on now?” Juana Calidad tells them, “have anybody seen Manuel Efe going into my bedroom?” They utter, “no.” Juana Calidad asks, “so you haven’t seen anybody go into my bedroom?” They utter, “no.” Tere tells them, “well I’ve been in the kitchen but I haven’t see anybody enter the house.” Juana Calidad gets on her knees. “Oh thank you lord, thank you Juana Ines De la Cruz. Saint antonia maria clarice. Saint Astokio bendita. We are not worthy of this great gift, you have given us but we humbly accept. The girls simply look at one another. Yes we are spiritual creatures.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen you better tell us what’s going on.” Tere asks, “girl what happened?” Juana Calidad tells them, “god and the glorious maria and all the lords saints. Have come here on this earth, we are witnesses.” Juana Matilde tells them, “hey calm down. You know something, but that concert from yesterday. Has turned our nun crazy. Yes she has gone completely crazy.” Juana Valentina asks, “what happened?” Juana Calidad tells her, “a miracle has happened. The money is multiplying. Just like the lord multiplied bread and fish.” Juana Valentina ask, “wait one minute why are you saying that the money is multiplying? What exactly are you saying?” Juan Calidad tells them, “Juana Valentina every time I count it. More and more show up.” Juana Bautisa asks, “are you sure about that?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes Juana Bautisa at first I thought it was Manuel Efe. I thought he was such a nice man, but you all said that he didn’t come into my room. So how is this happening, he doesn’t know where I hide my money. Sisters this is a miracle, we should pray yes pray.” Juana Manny tells them, “I just think no there has to be a logical explanations to this.”

The guys show up, “hi girls.” Juana Manny tells him, “hi scary frog.” Octavio tells them, “listen too this even Juana Bautista wouldn’t see this coming.” Juana Valentina ask, “what’s happening now?” Octavio tells her, “apparently Dona Dona wants to talk to all of us.” The girls utter, “what?” Mauricio tells them, “just the couples. In pairs but separately, and in private.” The girls simply look at one another.

Over at the salguero house, Ruben ask. “Now mother, why do you want to see all the juanas and their boyfriends.” Dona Dona tells him, “what now I have to give explanations of what I do and don’t do?” Ruben tells her, “no of course not but its just quite strange. I’m a bit curious that’s all.” Dona Dona tells him, “I want to talk to them alright. That’s everything.” Ruben tells her, “now then the boys have been advised.” Dona Dona ask, “and what did they say?” Ruben tells her, “they are ready whenever you are.” Dona Dona tells him, “fine then the son of Adela is Mauricio Fuentelafria he’s dating the nun right?” Ruben tells her, “oh yes you are very well informed.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes son considering I had to put up with them for so many years. Plus being so close to them, it was unavoidable. They will be the firsts.” Ruben tells her, “Mauricio and Juana Calidad fine I will tell them. Now remind them to call me, to advise me when they are coming.” Ruben tells her, “yes senora.”

Over at the dolorosa, Miguel tells Juana Matilde. “You know something Juana Matilde, don’t pay any attention too them. I just think that your sisters are just jealous of you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “you know something I think the same thing Miguel. Yes tell me, tell me who out of all of them sing like me?” Miguel tells her, “yes you are. Plus your the most joyful, happy and beautiful of the bunch. That is what Maria Delia should be saying, when she talks about you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen Miguel you know me. You know I’m fresh for everything. But what Maria Delia told me, about what my sisters are saying about me. It shocked me and it hurt my soul very much.” Miguel tells her, “hey don’t pay any attention too that. I do love you, and that should be enough for you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey Miguel enough with your weird saying. It just annoys me. Well especially now, that were fine. Well I don’t know I’m just saying.” Miguel tells her, “Juana Matilde listen next year I begin working at my father’s warehouse. I talked to him, about the percentage I’m going to make. I’m going to help him with all his clients. Plus the old man is tired of that job. Well you know that I need money.” Juana Matilde asks, “and sonny why do you need money anyway?” Miguel tells her, “so I can save so we can get married you idiot.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes that’s true.” Miguel asks, “I wonder why would Dona Dona want to talk to us. It leave me quite intrigued.” Juana Matilde tells him, “you know what it just seems pretty weird too me. Well considering that the Dona, has been keeping her distance from us. She wants us far away from us, I’m just saying.” Miguel tells her, “yes that is true but maybe its a miracle.” Juana Matilde ask, “talking about miracles do you believe in miracles.”

Back at the house, Juana Valentina tells Juana Bautista. “No its quite clear, there’s no miracle but what type of explanations is there?” Juana Bautista tells her, “the strangest thing is it has happened on numerous accounts. If it happened just once, we can say that Juana Calidad made a mistake.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh no Juana Calidad has always been very good with her accounts. Always she has never had, a single problem no that’s impossible.” Juana Bautista tells her, “of course she’s a virgo and they take great care with money. They are meticulous with their things, very conservative. They are careful with everything.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’m going to help her out to find out where the error is.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’ll go with you.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey calm down and relax.” Juana Bautista tells her, “this concerns me as well. I want to know, what’s going on.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen I’ll look and then tell you.” Juana Bautista tells her, “girl Juana Valentina I understand that your a great organizer. That your the leader, that your doing everything to take Ruben out of your head. But we are not at fault, for you having a forbidden love with our brother.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Juana Bautista nobody is paying any price because of me. Listen you’ve always told me, I’m the older sister. I have to accept that, and act accordingly nothing more.” Juana Bautista tells her, “but your overstepping the boundaries. Haven’t you realized that?” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen ever since I discovered your existances. Well before that, I have killed myself for all of you Juana Bautista. Don’t be so unjust do me, that’s no favor no fregue.”

Juana Valentina is with Juana Calidad and Tere. “Now then after this date what happened?” Juana Calidad tells them, “more money showed up.” Juana Valentina ask, “but from where?” Juana Calidad tells her, “its from the lord for there’s no other explanations.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen yes there is. Now then why don’t we start by here. In this month, use the calculator.” Calixto is at the door, he tells them. “Hello my daughters.” Juana Calidad utter, “hello father.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hello Don Calixto how are you doing?” Tere tells him, “I’ll get you a glass of juice.” Calixto tells her, “yes thank you it seems your doing the accounts.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well checking some things here?” Calixto tells them, “now then let me inform you that soon. I’ll be receiving the first paycheque of the harvest. So no more worrying about the money.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh at last.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh yes or over excess of it.” Calixto tells her, “well being in excess is always good for one. Were going to at last get that harvest.” Juana Calidad tells him, “thank the lord and the heavens.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh that’s great news.” Calixto asks, “and where is everyone I need to talk to everyone.”

Over at the hotel pool, Maria Delia is there getting some sun. “Oh I just love this pool. Thank you for inviting me to get some sun. I really do appreciate it.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well I figure since the doctor’s treatment worked. That your eyes no longer form into crystals. Well then you should continue, that treatment for a bit longer just in case.” Maria Delia tells him, “well I’m going to stay as long as I can out in the sun. For I never want to get that thing ever again.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes but be very careful for the sun isn’t good for your skin. In Europe they have taken that into effect. But here they really could care less.” Maria Delia tells him, “you know what I was thinking about. Remember when you told me to come, and spend the day with the juanas.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes I remember. Yes now then, how is that great relationship your having with your future step-sisters” Maria Delia tells him, “oh very good Manuel Efe. I’ve been opening their eyes, to each other to see what the other really thinks about them. Do you think I’m doing the right thing?” Manuel Efe tells her, “very good my dear.” Maria Delia tells him, “but you know something it does bother me so. For this just seems, well I’m causing a discord among them.” Manuel Efe tells her, “don’t you worry about that. Good information is alway good Maria Delia. What’s bad is not having information. They need this information, so they can have a better relationship. So they can live without having any problems.” Maria Delia tells him, “yes that is so true Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes for example its good that they know. Well that Juana Bautista is basically using them all. You know that she’s good with their signs and all. But its like she’s using them, to get more power to make her a better fortune teller.” Maria Delia asks, “so your telling me Manuel Efe that Juana Bautista is using her sisters.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes that is it exactly. You see Juana Bautista cares more about astrology. She takes what she sees, well to grow more. She wants to be the best astrologer in the world.” Maria Delia tells him, “but that is terrible a very bad thing.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes Maria Delia a very bad thing too do.”

The girls return home, and greet their father. Juana Matilde tells them, “now then the last time we were all together. Was when Judge Geremias Guerra told us. That he has bought us this house.” Calixto tells them, “now then this is totally different.” Juana Valentina tells her, “now then were all excited too know. So go ahead and tell us.” Calixto tells them, “as you know that corozal and its region. Had never suffered so very much, with all the damage those crops took this year.” Juana Manny tells him, “your like Todoelmundo telling us a long story.” Calixto tells them, “I’m telling you this because you need too know. How important this moment is for us all.” They utter, “yes of course.” Calixto tells them, “well considering how great the crops have turned out. The region has been reborn once again.” Juana Manny tells him, “that we already know.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey Juana Manny let him talk stop being uneducated.” Calixto tells them, “now then the mayor would like to celebrate our good luck by having a harvest festival crowning.” Juana Manny tells him, “I already know that because my mother is part of the committee. Listen here, don’t you dare tell me too shut my mouth. For I can talk when ever or where ever I want. Don’t you dare tell me to shut up.” They utter, “calm down.”

Juana Matilde tells her, “hey father is talking here.” Calixto tells her, “calm down your not in the ring. Well what you might not know, that the mayor would like one of my daughters. To be the queen of the harvest.” Juana Manny asks, “one of us as queen?” They utter, “oh yes that would be fun to do.” Calixto tells them, “the mayor mentioned only of Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina utters, “me?” Juana Manny utters, “wait a minute why her why not any of us?” Calixto tells them, “she’s the first juana to arrive in corozal. She’s very beautiful, but I say all of you are quite lovely.” Juana Matilde tells him, “you know something father I think it would be a great idea. If I were a queen as well.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well then one minute father we will discuss this together. Now then the boys have told us. That Dona would like to talk to each of us. Plus them as well, do you know why that is?” Calixto tells them, “well I don’t know and I’m a bit curious myself. Now I must really leave. Now I’ll tell the mayor, he can accept the collaboration of all of you.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes of course he can. Inform him the four Juana’s, and the Echinque will help him out.” Calixto kisses each one, “oh all of you are very beautiful. He looks at Juana Manny, now dear calm down bye girls.”

Once he’s gone the fight begins. Juana Manny tells them, “let me announce too you all. I am going to be the queen. I won’t cross my arms for this.” Juana Matilde asks, “wait a minute what did you say Juana Manny. Oh yes I remember, yes I remember. Fine then, I too want to also announce. That I want to be queen as well. Now that I was part of a concert, who among you all deserves to be the queen. Or isn’t it logical Juana Bautista?” Juana Bautista tells them, “listen Juana Matilde its quite logical that all of us want to participate.” Juana Calidad asks, “do you also want to be the queen?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m attracted to all of this. In finding out well, how one feels. That one can really entertain someone. In fact a whole town, plus its a healthy entertaining event. I wouldn’t mind me being a queen, if its my opportunity. Or if I’m chosen to do so. I wouldn’t react with surprise or awe.” Juana Manny jealously asks, “and why does it have too be Juana Valentina. Just because she’s the oldest oh come on.” Juana Valentina tells her, “that’s enough Juana Manny do me a favor. I didn’t invent nothing. I didn’t subscribe, and didn’t know nothing about this. If your looking for a guilty party, blame the mayor. Please you better respect me.”

Juana Calidad ask, “then that means your not interesting in being the harvest queen.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I didn’t say that but what I am is terrified. All of you are a bunch of ingrates. You haven’t taken into account, everything that I have done for all of you. I wanted us to be fine, my only purpose since we arrived here. That were all fine, that all our things turn out well. You don’t take that into account.” Juana Matilde sarcastically tells her, “oh poor thing Juana Valentina don’t play the salvation girl. We have all done exactly what you have done. Yes some of us have had better luck than others. Yes that is very clear, that is what I express and think and that’s final.” Juana Calidad sadly ask, “oh sor juana inez de la cruz nun what is happening with us?” Juana Manny tells her, “what’s going on is that were taking out our dirty laundry into the sunshine. Were saying exactly, what we all think of one another.” Juana Calidad teary eyed tells them, “listen I was very happy at the convent. I never asked none of you, to come get me. This is a sign from the heavens, all of you must pray and bless the lord.” Juana Valentina tells them, “I didn’t forced you don’t you remember that Juana Calidad.” Juana Manny tells her, “wait a minute do you feel superior. Because you helped our father to find us?”

Juana Valentina tells them, “I don’t feel superior too anybody. Everything that I have done for all of you. Haven’t you realized that, I’ve done everything making sure things go well.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh how beautiful you are. Listen from this point on, for me don’t force yourself to nothing for me.” Juana Valentina tells them, “you are all unjust don’t be so unjust. Do me a favor and think, think about this everything has been around you all. I haven’t gotten a blasted thing. I’ve forced myself, to make sure everything has gone well. First it was the fair, I almost killed myself making sure that Juana Bautista was fine. The same thing with the theatre production. I worked and killed myself, making sure things went well for Juana Calidad. With that fight, Juana Manny it was the same deal. What your saying no. Lastly was that concert, Juana Matilde remember I organized everything. I was the one that talked to the Italian guy, as your representative. I had the idea to go find Charlie Zaa, everything that I have done is for all of you. Don’t you value that?” Juana Bautista tells her, “its not a human thing to shove everything you did for us in our faces.”

Juana Manny tells her, “enough Juana Bautista with the run a rounds. Act of nobilty, oh come on to catch the attention of everyone. To demand and boss everyone around. Plus think you are all more intelligent than me.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m not messing with you Juana Manny please moderate yourself.” Juana Manny yells out, “than stop acting all perfect.” Juana Valentina tells her, “shut up and calm yourself down that’s quite enough.” Juana Manny is livid, “what just because you said so. That were suppose to do, what ever you want well no.” Juana Calidad crying tells them, “oh please please no at this moment. We should all pray, let us all pray so we can calm ourselves down. Why don’t we say the twelve mysteries of juana Ines de la cruz.” Juana Valentina tells her, “calm down now I think its best that we do talk. Take everything out of us, so we don’t continue being filled with venom.” Juana Calidad tells her, “but we have already been bitten with venom Juana Valentina. Just listen to everything, that were saying too one another. The devil is among us.” Juana Matilde yells out, “enough with the devil and your blasted saints. Get them out of your head for once. Just shut up, all I know is all four of you are overtaken by jealous. Yeah laugh if you want, your all jealous of me that’s the truth. Your all full of rage and jealousy.” Juana Bautista ask, “no lets analyze this what are you talking about what jealousy?” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh yes yes your the intelligent one. You figure it out Juana Bautista. I say envy and jealousy, yes all four of you are jealous of me. You now know that my brilliant musical career as a singer has begun. Yes your full of rage, yes the envy is all over you. As if I didn’t know already.” Juana Bautista asks, “are you serious do you really think that girl?”

Juana Matilde gets up, “what I’m talking seriously or can’t you tell?” Juana Calidad tells her, “I don’t envy you Juana Matilde. Envy is a sin, I’m not a sinner.” Juana Manny laughing tells her, “just great another perfect one. Yes all of you are perfect instead of me. Yes that is what your all saying.” Juana Matilde tells them, “shut up Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells her, “no you shut up.” Juana Matilde tells her, “dear lord your also mixed up in all of this girl. Its not just envy and jealousy. Its also superiority, you all think your more superior than I am. You can ask, that guy I forget his name. A Chalie Zaa, ask him if I have a complex. All of you are full of complexes.” Juana Bautista gets up, “you mean your the one that is suffering a superior complex Juana Matilde.” Furiously Juana Matilde grabs, and turns Juana Bautista. “Enough Juana Bautista I’ve tired of you. I might not be Juana Manny, but were going to take care of this once and for all.” Juana Valentina pulls them apart. “That’s enough all of you.” Juana Bautista tells her, “don’t you dare touch me like that ever again.” Juana Calidad crying utters, “I should have stayed at the convent.” Juana Valentina tells them, “dear lord I never thought this was going to happen. This is a nightmare, you should be ashamed of yourself. All I’m asking of all of you, is really think about what your going to do. Or what your going too say. This is unbelievable, I’m not going to hear any more stupid things your saying. When you are all calm, we can discuss this further. I’m referring to all four of you, even you. The four of you then advise me.” She heads to the stairs, Juana Manny begins mocking her. “Oh yes all four of you have to be calm. Especially you, well you know what. I’m telling you right now, I’m not going to appolgize to anybody.” Juana Valentina yells out, “Juana Manny.” Crying and heartbroken, Juana Calidad crying repeats. “You should have left me at the convent.” Then she heads to her room. Juana Matilde tells her, “well you know what I’m tired. I’m just saying, I am a famous person. I deserve to be that queen. Plus me being the queen of the harvest, will only make me more famous. I’m just saying.” Juana Bautista tells her, “fine Juana Matilde.” Then all of them go into their own rooms.

Tere comes out with juice for all. “Girls girls, where did they all go?” Ruben shows up, “hey everyone hi Terezalsura. I’m looking for my sisters, most of all Juana Calidad.” Tere tells him, “they were here talking. When I was in the kitchen, let me tell you then they had a heated discussion.” Ruben ask, “did they step out?” Tere tells him, “well no they never leave. Without say goodbye to each of them.” Tere goes upstairs, and finds every door closed. Ruben tells her, “you know something this looks like night time. This is quite strange.” Tere yells out, ” girls.” Ruben knocks on Juana Manny’s door. “Hey who’s bothering me?” Ruben laughs, “oh this girl get angry for anything. Juana Manny its me.” Juana Manny tells him, “sorry Ruben I’m in no mood too talk to anybody.” Ruben tells her, “if she doesn’t want to be bothered we shouldn’t bother her.” Tere utters, “but why?” Ruben tells her, “its strange because they are always together. No how about Juana Matilde?” Juana Matilde tells him, “at this moment I’m not giving out any autographs to anybody.” Ruben tells her, “but its me Ruben.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh little brother listen oh am shocked oh but I want to be alone right now.” Tere utters, “this is too strange.” Juana Valentina tells her, “sorry Tere but I want to be alone.” Tere utters, “what is going on here?” Ruben utters, “Juana Bautista lets see if she can tell us what happened.” Tere tells her, “listen Juana Bautista your brother Ruben is here. He would like to talk too you. He wants to know what’s going on.” Ruben utters, “Juana Bautista.” Juana Bautista comes out and simply tells them. “One day there was a huge explosion. It was called the big bang, all the planets then were born. They took their places in the atmosphere.” Ruben ask, “why are you telling us this?” Juana Bautista crying tells him, “here today was a big bang Ruben. Now nothing, will ever be the same again here.”

(The big bang is a scientific theory. That states the universe was created by atoms exploding. It was first purposed by Georges Lamaitre.)

Ruben heads back to the dolorosa. Mauricio tells him, “now inform Dona your mother that on Tuesday in the afternoon. First I have too confirm with Juana Calidad.” Ruben tells him, “well good luck Maudi with that but none of them. Want to talk too anybody.” Mauricio asks, “what’s up with that?” Ruben tells him, “well I went over to the pink house. I wanted to ask Juana Calidad, when you two were going to go see my mother. But when I arrived, the panorama was totally different to me. All of them the juanas were in their rooms, none of them are talking too one another.” Mauricio utters, “nobody? Hey guys come over here. This is going to interest you, its concerning the juanas.” Poncho asks, “gossip gossip what is it?” Mauricio asks, “don’t tell me that they got another illness. Like that misfortune disease.” Octavio ask, “what are you two talking about?” Ruben tells them, “pay attention my sisters are fighting amongst themselves. Its what Terezalsura and I, were able to comprehend. They don’t want to leave their rooms. Nor do they want to talk to anybody.” Miguel tells him, “Juana Matilde considering she loves you very much. She doesn’t want to talk to you. Its quite strange, if you weren’t her brother I would be very jealous.” Ruben tells him, “well I just thought that maybe you all could do something. See if they will talk, get a dialogue going in these cases its for the best.” Octavio tells him, “well we better try to see what’s going on.” Mauricio tells them, “yes we have to find out who originated this discussion.” Ruben tells them, “I would go with you but I think. Its best all of you, go and talk to your own girlfriends.” Then they all take off, Poncho tells Mauricio. “Man Mauricio tell me later what happened. Oh our poor friends, if the juanas were 20 years older. They wouldn’t have to deal, with these teenage girl’s problems.” Gualberto tells him, “well I am a bit jealous of all of them. I would try to help out Juana Bautista in these difficult times.” Poncho tells her, “forget about Juana Bautista Gualberto she’s engaged to the wolf man.” Gualberto tells him, “hey enough you don’t have to remind me. How about if I reminded you, that Terezalsura doesn’t pay you any attention. Because she’s now dating Todoelmundo.” Poncho tells him, “what no she’s just making herself very difficult for me. I know their games.” Gualberto utters, “yeah right.”

Back at the pink house, Orlando sees Juana Bautista. “So that is what occurred, no wonder you all were having so many problems among yourselves lately.” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes it went out of the bag. I never thought, something like this would happen.” Orlando tells her, “in a point its understandable. Its just strange that it didn’t happen sooner.” Juana Bautista tells him, “do you really think it was quite logical. That we all behaved like that Orlando?” Orlando tells her, “my love look at it this way. All of you didn’t know of each other’s existence. Only a couple of months ago. First you find out, your have a father. Next is that you have other siblings. Then you all live in the same house. You all hardly knew one another. How can you not wait, for something like this too occur.” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen I am aware that there could have been some discrepancies. But were all over age Orlando. We can at least use dialogue to settle our differences.” Orlando tells her, “fine then tell that too your sisters.” Juana Bautista tells him, “is just impossible to talk too them all. They don’t understand reasons. Plus I’m bored, always been the one to calm all the attentions down. Or dealing with their problems, I now am letting them. Deal with their own conscience. To act their voluntary.” Orlando asks, “do you always let destiny take control?” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes in fact I think one yes can twist a road to their destiny. A small curve to change once’s life. But considering how things have become. I don’t think, I am not moving.”

Juana Manny is with Octavio. “I’ve had it that the best things go too my sisters. If I want to be the harvest queen, I should be allowed to do so. I’m not going to back down.” Octavio tells her, “I fully agree with you. You are very beautiful, you have grace and are enchanting. Above all you have a great personality. That is what one needs for those contests.” Juana Manny tells him, “well apparently they don’t see it that way.” Octavio tells her, “I’ll even make you a nice chariot very beautiful and everything.” Juana Manny tells him, “they are using me. They want to take advantage of me. Yeah which of them, is going to go against Robusta Coronado. Well which one, none of them. No let them hit Juana Manny, for that is what’s she’s good for. No sir, I’m good for other things.” Octavio tells her, “you know something my firecracker. If you want to be the harvest queen. I will support you.” Then she hugs him.

Juana Calidad is in her room. Mauricio knocks on the door, “hi Cadi its me my love Mauricio.” Mauricio enters, “ave maria purisima.” Juana Calidad utters, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Calidad goes towards him, kissing him until he’s left breathless.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh Mauricio come here my sisters and I fought for the very first time.” Mauricio asks, “what happened?” Juana Calidad tells him, “we said terrible things too one another.” Mauricio tells her, “come on my love calm down and tell me. What happened?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well it all started because all of us want to be the queen of the harvest.” Mauricio asks, “and you?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well I don’t know I wouldn’t mind but in the end I would feel so embarrassed so no.” Mauricio tells her, “listen when you did the concert. You did have a nice time, and it went rather well. Who knows you might even enjoy yourself, being the queen of the harvest.” Juana Calidad tells him, “I’ll think about that later anyway like I was telling you. It all started there, and you know I don’t like too fight. Especially with my sisters, you know they are my only family.” Mauricio tells her, “but you have me as well my life.” Mauricio then kisses her forehead.

Miguel and Juana Matilde are outside in the patio. “Listen you might be a bit forgetfulness. But that doesn’t mean, you can’t do a whole bunch of things.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh Miguel oh Miguel of course I already showed it. When I performed at that concert or no.” Miguel tells her, “yes of course plus you sang with Charlie Zaa. Of course your capable of being the queen of the harvest.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes why not? Well that is my question.” Miguel asks, “is that what you really want.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes well you know what. I don’t know what, I want to do in my life. But what really shocks me Miguel, is that my sisters only want the best for themselves. Oh yes the best for me, the best for me. But one has more capacity than the rest. To get really high in fact.” Miguel tells her, “fine then I’ll support you.” Juana Matilde asks, “and what help are you going to give out of everything that I have said.” Miguel tells her, “listen if you want to be the harvest queen. The best thing as your future husband can do. Is too help you out my love.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh your so very beautiful. That’s why I love you so very much.” Miguel tells her, “now enough with being so full of rage.”

Juana Valentina is in her bedroom. Tere asks, “daughter your the one that puts the rhythm in this house. Why not finish this fight once and for all?” Juana Valentina tells her, “well that is it exactly why my sisters are attacking me with. That I put the rhythm.” Tere tells her, “listen Juana Valentina they will accept their error. Then everything will be like it was before.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen its up to them if they want it Terezalsura.” Tere tells her, “but my dear you all love one another so very much. You have given an example, to corozal that being sisters. Well you are very much united. I just think, if too much time passes. Every minute will be very difficult daughter.” Juana Valentina tells her, “they know they know. I am ready to have a dialogue, to listen all they have to do is look for me. I can’t make that step for them Terezalsura no.” Tere tells them, “but my dear your the oldest. Your the one that makes the orders, why don’t you now?” Juana Valentina tells her, “they can also hear with their own heads. Yes for their own, they have to now do is they should act upon their souls not me.” Tere tells her, “but my love they love you so very much. Enough with your role of the victim already.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey I’m not doing any victim role Terezalsura. But what they said, hurt my entire heart. It hurt me.” Tere utters, “oh saint lord.”

Over at the salguero house, Ruben tells Calixto. “I’m quite worried still, I’ve just talked to Terezalsura. She says, that situation is still the same in that house. They still don’t talk too one another, their boyfriends have just left.” Calixto tells him, “my guess is that the boyfriends have made them come to their senses.” Ruben tells him, “I don’t think so things are still the same. Everyone locked in their rooms, plus I called and neither of them want to talk too me.” Calixto tells him, “hey forget about it for these things will pass.” Ruben tells him, “but father this does bother me so. Between them all, they have never treated each other badly. Seeing them like this is quite terrible.” Calixto tells him, “oh come on Ruben your the only child. For a very long time, fights always occur between siblings. Siblings that respect one another they do fight.” Ruben tells him, “well shouldn’t things be different.” Calixto tells him, “listen when your children. They fight for their toys, they accuse themselves. As they get older, they do fight but they still have a great affection for each other.” Dona Dona goes too them, “dinner is ready we can be served now.” Calixto tells him, “oh great news Dona working out in the sun. Those rays gives one a great appetite, I’ll eat what ever you give me.” Ruben tells her, “oh I talked to Mauricio. He and Juana Calidad will see you on tuesday afternoon.” Dona Dona asks, “so what of it?” Ruben tells her, “you asked to see them.” Dona Dona tells him, “alright no problem tuesday afternoon. I’ll be waiting for them right here.” Then they go have dinner, Calixto’s very puzzled and shakes his head.

Over at the dolorosa, Mauricio tells them. “I heard them talking about the harvest festival right here in fact.” Octavio tells him, “oh yes there’s nothing that this gossip politician doesn’t know.” Mauricio tells him, “listen we have to know what’s going on in are region Dr. Portoreal.” Miguel tells him, “Juana Matilde would be the best queen. She gave that concert a lot of popularity. She would close the festival like a gold broach.” Octavio tells him, “well let me tell you Juana Manny also wants to be the queen. I’m going to help her out. Anyway that I can.” Miguel tells him, “you know that sounds like a threat.” Octavio tells him, “its nothing but I’m just commenting. Look Juana Manny is very beautiful. Plus she has a lot of character, and you do need that if your going to be in that pageant.” Orlando tells him, “let me remind you of something. Yes one does need a lot of character. But in these types of events, the woman has too have a lot of grace. Plus you need a feminine woman, just like my Juana Bautista.” Octavio tells him, “listen its good that everyone wants to support their girlfriends. That is normal, ok the one that won’t win is my friend Maudi. Juana Calidad can’t even hope to be a pope.”

Mauricio tells them, “oh terrible joke. Can’t you tell, that Juana Calidad doesn’t have nothing to envy her sisters.” Gualberto tells them, “yes that is so very true.” Mauricio tells them, “yes Juana Calidad is the perfect queen of the harvest.” Octavio tells him, “listen Fuentelafria love has in fact made you image things. That the nun wants to participate in that pageant. That is thinking about desire Fuentelafria.” Mauricio tells them, “well yes let me permit too you. That Juana Calidad, is really thinking about this. If she says yes, me Mauricio Fuentelafria. Will be helping her out.” Gualberto tells them, “yes eyes guys. Yes if this Fuentelafria is going to use, all his father’s campaign abilities. I’m just saying.” Miguel tells him, “oh it won’t help for Juana Calidad won’t win over Juana Matilde never.” Mauricio utters, “ha ha ha. Listen Tejeros, you think you have the heavens in your hands. Because the concert turned out marvelous.” Octavio utters, “yes that’s true.” Mauricio continues, “that concert turned out well because it wasn’t Juana Matilde alone. But it was because of the chorus. Yes it was Juana Calidad that won the public.” Orlando tells him, “hey listen Juana Bautista was also in the chorus.” Mauricio tells him, “Juana Calidad was the best. Juana Manny is only good at fighting.” Octavio makes fun of the way Juana Calidad dances. The guys start fighting, Gualberto tells them. “Listen the girls were all good.” Poncho tells him, “well this is not how I like to see you all. Hopefully this will calm you all down. You need something to re freshen yourself. Or else you’ll all kill yourselves.” After that, all the guys look angrily at one another.

Judge Geremias Guerra is waiting for Margarita Cruz to arrive home. He has a romantic evening planned for her. Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh good evening Geremias. What is with all this elegance, what’s going on in this house? Don’t tell me you have guests. I’m not dressed for company, I can’t see anybody like this.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “yes I have a guest.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “well then I’ll hurry it up and get changed.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “no no the invited guest is you.” He gives her flowers, Margarita Cruz asks. “But Geremias, I don’t understand.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “just relax and come over here. Come and sit down.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “its so beautiful.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “sit down please would you care for a cold champagne.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “sure no problem.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “how about a lobster appetizer before dinner?” Margarita Cruz repeats, “a lobster appetizer before dinner? Geremias is there something I should know?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “no there’s nothing that you shouldn’t know. Well for now anyways.”

Over at the pink house, Todoelmundo is invited for dinner. The girls are all quiet, and just eat. Todoelmundo tells them, “yes dinner is quite delicious.” Tere tells them, “its a shame that Juana Matilde’s concert is over. Now we have nothing to entertain ourselves with. What is your opinon about this? Everyone is silent. I know we could invent something. Well how about a party for example. What do you think about that girls?” Todoelmundo tells her, “oh yes that’s an excellent idea Terezalsura. How about a party to celebrate the harvest?” Tere tells him, “yes that is correct.” Juana Calidad gets up, “Terezalsura dinner was very delicious. Ave maria purisima.” Tere utters, “sin pecado concebido.” Todoelmundo asks, “girls you don’t know the tale about the talking goat?” Tere laughing tells him, “oh yes but do tell it to us again.” Juana Manny gets up, and takes her glass and plate. “Thank you and excuse me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well yes thank you it was quite delicious. What ever the case, I’ll wash the dishes later bye Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes goodbye.” Tere asks, “ok you two talk now. Enough of this stupid joking around.” Juana Bautista gets up and tells her, “the responds is in each other’s souls. Yes the signs could help, but its everybody’s own decisions excuse me.” Todoelmundo tells her, “now then your the one that was the star of the concert. How about you talk nicely too your sisters Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde angrily tells him, “man you won’t even let me finish my meal. You know something Todoelmundo, is that I don’t know. Fine and thank you Tere.” Todoelmundo tells him, “the phrase of Juana Matilde. Is the ignorance of Socrates. He assured everyone, these are his words. That I really don’t know.” Tere tells him, “oh Todoelmundo with what’s going on. Your talking about that.” Todoelmundo tells her, “its never a bad time to discuss Socrates. Like everybody knows he was a great Greek philosopher. Who was born in greece in 470 before christ. His profession was in helping people, get to know themselves.” Tere utters, “oh Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo asks, “oh Tere we will never fight right?” Tere tells him, “well of course not.”

Judge Geremias Guerra opens a bottle of champagne. “Oh Margarita this is so emotional.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh yes it is.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh how beautiful salute. Now then Geremias explain too me, what all this is all about.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “look Margarita sometimes reality reds the tip of our noses. We just don’t see it.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “is there something that I’m ignoring that I’m not capturing?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “no its not you Margarita. You arrived here in this house, almost casually.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “no sir I just accepted a kind invitation from you. I still do appreciate it.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “but later you stayed. Your spirit in this house, made this house live once more.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh its nothing Geremias.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “but yes it is. Just see, I’ve gotten acustomed to your presense. Your words, your voice. That everything works to perfection, without me knowing it. Since you have been busy, with organizing that committee. Regarding the harvest festival. I’ve noticed so many things, before I would come home and find you here. Now things are distictively for now I miss your presense.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “well Geremias I’m sorry that I’m leaving the house. Neglecting my duties, but before I leave. I make sure nothing is missing for your breakfast. Everything is running smoothly without me.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well your presense has done me the world of good. Without it I have noticed so many things. Well this morning, when I awoke I began to think. I imaged this house without you. I became very panicked Margarita.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh dear your exaggerating.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well I’m not afraid to be run this house. I’ve done it for many years now. You know what terrified me. I realized what you signified for me.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “Geremias you don’t have to tell me this.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “yes you should know this for I’m asking you Margarita. Would you do me the honor, and be my wife?” Margarita Cruz is very shocked, but she smiles.

In the end Tere did the dishes, and now Todoelmundo is helping her put things away. “Oh I didn’t think, things were that bad between them.” Tere tells him, “well that is what Juana Valentina told me. The truth is I wasn’t there, luckily for me. I really don’t know, what I would have done Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells her, “maybe you would have stopped them from saying so many things.” Tere tells him, “in the end neither of the five wants to give in.” Todoelmundo tells her, “the only one that can get them back together is you Terezalsura.” Tere tells him, “I really don’t know what else too do Todoelmundo. I really do need your help, see I gathered them all one by one. I tried to talk to each of them, I became more angry with them than anything. I even told them, I was heading back to Barranquilla.” Todoelmundo asked, “hopefully its just a threat only.” Tere tells him, “oh no I couldn’t leave my girls alone.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well use your cranium to think of another idea. Use also your five sense, to to do things voluntary.” Tere asks, “what?” Todoelmundo tells her, “oh come on using our two heads together we have to think of something. To get a solution.” Tere tells him, “fine Todoelmundo tell me what should we do?” Todoelmundo ask, “for now how about a kiss.” Tere then utters, “oh Todoelmundo thats it.” Todoelmundo ask, “and why?” Tere tells him, “it gives me pity.”

Its late and Ruben is getting ready for bed. But he can’t for Manuel Efe has visited him. “You know something, I really don’t like the way Juana Valentina has been treating you lately. That hard tone she uses.” Ruben asks, “what do you mean what tone?” Manuel Efe tells him, “you know that tone. When she refers too you, or talks about you. I just don’t like it.” Ruben tells him, “yes she has changed a lot. Yes not only with me, but with my sisters as well.” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh yes I heard they are all fighting. But why is Juana Valentina angry at you? I’m wondering why?” Ruben tells him, “listen Manuel Efe I’m not interested in talking about that topic. I’m very tired and want too go too bed. So please get off my bed.” Manuel Efe tells him, “you know how much I appreciate your sisters. But you know they owe me some money. If they start fighting, who’s going to pay me back my money?” Ruben tells him, “listen you will get your money paid. When my father pays you back as well. So don’t you worry, its what we had agreed on. You’ll get your money, so please get up. Hey man get the hell out of here, forget about the payback.” In the end Ruben has too kick him out of the room. Manuel Efe tells him, “hey before I leave I was leaving the concert. I saw Yolanda Del Cabrales. She talked about you, she told me everything that occured that famous night. Daaa your such a flirt.” Ruben kicks him out, “hey goodbye.”

The next morning, Juana Manny goes to see her mother. “Now Juana Manny I swore, when I got involved in the harvest pagent. I wasn’t going to pick sides.” Juana Manny tells her, “but mother your in charge of those things. Plus you have to talk to each candidate for that pagent.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “listen the other members can decide who is the harvest queen. Plus I can do other things.” Juana Manny tells her, “listen were fighting amongst ourselves over this. So at least help us out.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “don’t insist more Juana Manny please. I can’t shove my breasts out, and say. I want my daughter, to be the harvest queen no sir.” Juana Manny whins, “but mother I want too be the queen.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes and I’m going to be very happy if you get it. It has to be by your own accord. Now talk to your sisters, as an adult daughter.” Juana Manny tells her, “no its a waste of time. You can’t talk like adults with them.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “you can’t continue fighting for an eternity. I am sure if you just comment, how important this pagent is too you. You will all fully understand one another.” Juana Manny tells him, “just forget it you don’t know them very much.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “that is everything I’m going to say. I hope you comprehend Manny. For another side, could I tell you a personal issue. That just occured too me.” Juana Manny asks, “yes what is it?” Margarita Cruz asks, “what do you think about Judge Geremias Guerra.” Juana Manny tells her, “well he’s a nice person he allowed you to stay here. Why are you asking me this?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “he asked me marry him daughter.”

Juana Manny asks, “wait a minute he proposed marriage too you? She goes over to her, and gives her a big hug. Oh that’s wonderful, so what did you say.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well yes oh I was so worried thinking you would be so very angry.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh that’s great news.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “well I don’t know but I think he’s going to be a great husband. Well sometimes I’ve noticed he’s a bit strange daughter. Well I never realized that living with him. Having a routine with him, I really like spending time with him.” Juana Manny asks, “mother I’ve always dreamed of hearing this news again.” Margarita Cruz asks, “well what do you mean Manny?” Juana Manny tells her, “well the thing is when your a teenager. You begin to understand, that being in a relationship. Well its good for you, that way you can share things with another person. I was also so very sad, that you were always so alone. I always had this hope, that one day you would meet someone. That you liked, and he would make you happy.” She hugs her once more. Margarita Cruz tells her, “well you have left me speechless. I thought you would have an attack of jealousy. Thinking you were going to have another step-father.” Juana Manny tells her, “well it all depends in the step-father.” Margarita Cruz asks, “so what is your opinion regarding Judge Geremias Guerra?” Juana Manny tells her, “well I don’t like it if a step-father that is stuck like an fingernail. Than one having him just there.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh Juana Manny I’m not going to tell him. That is your response, no sir.” Juana Manny hugs her once more, “oh my sweet and darling mother. Well things are different now, because now that I have a real father. In this year, I got a new father and now a step-father. Some people can’t say that.” Juana Manny hugs her once more, “oh my wonderful mother.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh Juana Manny my love.”

Maria Delia visits the pink house once more. “Oh hello Juana Matilde so where are the rest of your sisters?” Juana Matilde tells him, “well girl I don’t know. When I woke up they weren’t here.” Maria Delia ask, “so they didn’t say where they were going?” Juana Matilde asks, “what you need them for something?” Maria Delia tells her, “no its just strange that you don’t know nothing about them. All of you always know, what one of you is doing.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh in fact I don’t care what they do. Nor where they go. Because here things have changed.” Maria Delia asks, “what do you mean?” Juana Matilde tells her, “what do you mean. Well things are now simple, were not friends anymore like before. We don’t talk, like we used too talk. That’s final.” Maria Delia tells her, “but that is quite grave Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well it was about time we finally set things straight. Well how ever its said.” Maria Delia tells her, “well at least Juana Bautisa will have information for her studies.” Juana Matilde ask, “your twisted girl talk too me clearly. Tell me what exactly do you mean?” Maria Delia tells her, “yes you see things relating to the zodiac. Everything that she studies.” Juana Matilde asks, “now what does that have too do with me and the zodiac. Since all of you have a different sign, she uses your reactions. To examine further who you really are. Thus become more an expert in astrology. You know that’s the things, she likes most of all.” Juana Matilde asks, “wait a minute are you trying too tell me. That Juana Bautista is using us as lab rats?” Maria Delia tells her, “Juana Matilde I think the term is laboratory rats yes that’s it.” Juana Matilde tells her, “it doesn’t matter how its said. Oh Juana Bautistia, this shocks me. If she wants to study, she should go to a university. If that is what she wants, but she has to stop using us. We are her sisters, her own flesh and blood. So she can stop using us, like those rabbits in a laboratory.” Maria Delia tells her, “oh yes to me its like really bad.” Juana Matilde tells her, “ugly is her sin girl. You know something, for me being a bit flighty. I haven’t realized, what kind of sisters I really have. You know something Maria Delia, but I’m sorry but its best you leave now. I’m not kicking you out but, I’m going to look for Miguel. He’s the only one, that I can really release my feeling too.” Maria Delia tells her, “ok bye.” Juana Matilde utters, “hey I thought that you already left bye Maria Delia.”

Over at the judge’s house, Margarita Cruz gives Juana Manny juice. Judge Geremias Guerra shows up. “Oh I didn’t know, you were here Juana Manny. So did your mother, give you the great news?” Juana Manny tells him, “first of I’m so happy that you two are engaged.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “now that your engaged to Octavio how about we all get married together. Well in one single ceremony, so what do you think?” Juana Manny tells her, “are you crazy yes we have made a few plans but. We haven’t made any definate plans of that sort.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “oh it doesn’t matter dear.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh so much time still has to pass mother.”

Judge Geremias Guerra arrives and tells her. “Oh Juana Manny I didn’t know you were here?” Juana Manny gives him a big hug, “oh Judge congratulations your getting. The most wonderful wife in the whole world.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “it seems she has told you. I didn’t think she would tell you so quickly.” Juana Manny tells him, “yes she has now let me tell you. I plan on giving you lots of kindness and love. Give you tons of respect, but I won’t be accepting that you order me around. I already have a bossy sister, plus already a mother and a father.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “I don’t hope that you obey me no. As long as you accept me, that’s fine with me.” Juana Manny tells him, “oh judge your so beautiful. I wish you two the best in the world. I want you to be so very happy.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “thank you Manny.” Juana Manny tells them, “now then let me tell you. I’m now going to meet up with Octavio. Mom if you change your mind, regarding that queen of the harvest business. I would really apprecitate it.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “Manny I won’t be changing my mind daughter.” Juana Manny tells them, “now then see you all soon bye. Plus a big congratulations to you both.” They utter, bye.” Then as she opens the door, Calixto is there. “Oh hi father, I am in a hurry but here your going to find some surprises bye.” Calixto tells her, “now daughter goodbye say hello to your sisters for me.” Juana Manny tells him, “no tell them yourself for I’m not going to do it bye.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “hi comparde how are you doing?” Calixto tells him,”fine fine now then what is the surprise that my daughter is mentioning.” Margarita Cruz laughs and tells him, “well what surprise.”

Over at the dolorosa, the group are together but they sit in pairs in different tables. Orlando tells Juana Bautista, “dear I don’t want to go out of the city. But I have to hand in that finished project. I just don’t like leaving you, when your having so many personal problems in your house.” Juana Bautista tells him, “its only going to be for 2 days. Plus you can’t do nothing, to solve the fight between my sisters. They alone must have the capacity, you know something. The university is going to love your project.” Orlando tells her, “yes I surely hope so. I know they won’t like me quitting on them. But you know, I think they really won’t care.” Juana Bautista tells him, “it seems that you have really decided to live here in corozal.” Orlando tells her, “yes my love it has been decided. Plus there’s a posibility, that I can work in a school.” Juana Bautista utters, “really?” Orlando tells her, “well I don’t want to say anything until I am for certain.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh how good.” Orlando tells her, “that could be the tiping point so we can marry. Don’t tell me, that’s all about destiny. I won’t be able to stand it my life.” Juana Bautista tells him, “no that is a great posibility.

Octavio tells her, “you know its nice that Judge Geremias Guerra and Dona Margarita are a great couple to get married.” Juana Manny tells him, “I never saw it like a love role.” Octavio tells her, “now regarding the queen of the harvest. Now then my firecracker, I already said I’m going to be helping you out.” Juana Manny hugs him, “oh scary frog thank you so very much.”

Mauricio tells Juana Calidad, “listen my love Ruben has confirmed it. That on tuesday afternoon. Dona Dona will be waiting for us.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh I’m very worried.” Mauricio tells her, “yes me as well but the only way we can find out. What Dona Dona wants from us. Is that we have to listen to her my life. Oh Cadi what have you decided, in regards to the queen of the harvest.” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes I’m going to participate I want to be queen. The thing is I’ve considered it, its a nice clean diversion for the town. Plus I can show my father, that I am happy. That all his hard efforts, has helped with having good crops.” Mauricio tells her, “yes thank god my love that everything has been exceeded.” Juana Calidad tells him, “plus I am sure that sor juanas inez de la cruz. Would have also helped her father.” Mauricio tells her, “yes of course my love. I am very happy, and your going to be the most beautiful queen ever my Cadi.”

Juana Matile tells Miguel, “its now the worst Miguel. You know what I think, that all of this. Well things are quite grave you know. I never thought, that this would go to that point. Well I just can’t believe it, I just don’t know. The truth is this shocks me about Juana Bautista. That she is so like this man.” Miguel gives her a warm hug and tells her, “Juana Matilde I am with you. So don’t you worry alright.”

Mauricio gets up, “now ladies and gentlemen. Stand up Cadi I would like to present everyone, to the future queen of the harvest. You all know her, its Juana Calidad Salguero. Bravo Bravo.” Octavio also gets up, “listen Fuentelafria you have the wrong name for the queen of the festival it will be Juana Manny Salguero.” Miguel gets up, “oh no you both are mistaken. For the future queen of the harvest, will be Juan Matilde Salguero.” Juana Matilde sings, “hey its me its me.” Mauricio tells him, “she’s too small hey listen Tejeros for your information. Has the perfect natural personality to be the queen.” Juana Matilde utters, “yeah she’s supernatural.” Octavio gets up, “hey their politician. I’ve had it up to here with your air of gradeur. Everything that you think is right, and comes straight from the bible. But no sir you know what, its not being a politician’s son is no big quality.” Mauricio tells him, “but its not a defect either. You have little bunch of intelligence Octavio. Your a real brute, listen if you really want a real job. Then I might get you one, in my father’s campaign. Just talk then.” Octavio tells him, “you know what I envy more a stray dog than you.” Mauricio tells him, “blow my hand.” Miguel goes between them, “enough lets stop this fight. Lets agree that the queen of the harvest will be Juana Matilde.” Orlando gets in between, “Mauricio Octavio Miguel. Please calm down, your all acting like little kids. Think clearly in what your doing, and saying man.” Miguel tells him, “listen you ex-wolf man you can’t come here. Telling us what we can, and can’t say.” Orlando tells him, “hey Miguel that doesn’t sound good and it wasn’t for much.” Miguel tells him, “listen it wasn’t how it sounded.” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen Miguel you better appoligize too him. There’s one thing, that one doesn’t agree. But the other distinctive thing is being rude ” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen Juana Bautista excuse me. Miguel doesn’t have to apologize to anybody.”

Juana Bautista tells her, “listen girl you shouldn’t interfere.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well why not? Its one of my characterists, of being a capricorn. Wait that’s not my sign.” Juana Bautista tells her, “this has nothing to do with astrological sign.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh no?” Juana Bautista tells her, “no it has something to do with having a good education.” Juana Matilde begins talking jibersh. Juana Bautista tells her, “you need to grow up.” Juana Manny tells her, “you need to analysis things as well.” Juana Calidad tells them, “this is quite enough. For all the saints, were not going to fight here please.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh Juana Calidad leave the saints out of this. Stop believing that your one of them.” Mauricio tells her, “hey you shut up Juana Manny. She has a good heart, and she loves you all. She just wants what’s best for everyone. Above what’s occuring.” Juana Bautista asks, “above what Mauricio?” Mauricio tells her, “well all of you treat her different. Like she was different somehow from all of you.” Juana Bautista tells him, “hey that’s not true. You know that isn’t true Mauricio.” Octavio tells him, “see Mauricio you politician. Or what all your people have, its blind ambition. It has damaged your head man.” Mauricio tells him, “don’t you dare mess with me Octavio. I swear on my father, your going to end up loosing. You know me very well.” Octavio ask, “what are you threatening me?” Mauricio tells him, “take it how ever you want.” Juana Manny comes to his defence, with her fists up. Juana Calidad goes in front of Mauricio. “Oh no your going to have to hit me Juana Manny.” Octavio tells him, “hey don’t firecracker listen you I’m not afraid of you. You don’t scare me, you don’t even reach my ankles.” Everyone then begins yelling and screaming. Juana Valentina shows up, and everyone is quiet. She stares at everyone, they all go to their corners. “I’m looking for Terezalsura, I image she’s with Todoelmundo. Has anybody seen her?” Todoelmundo tells her, “over here they haven’t come by.” Then Juana Valentina utters, “thank you.” She then leaves the room, Poncho yells out. “Yes I’m with her, she didn’t have to say a single word. Are you all, going to tell me what the hell is going on with you all? Fighting, sister against sister. Friends against friends, what is going on with you all? What your only drinking juice, or are you all bringing your own liquor? What?”

Manuel Efe is at the hotel with Maria Delia. “Oh I feel sorry for those girls. I pitty pitty pitty them. Now the worse is going to come.” Maria Delia asks, “what’s worse Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well they have lived through difficult times. Now that things are better, they are going to be fighting for the big cattle.” Maria Delia asks, “now don’t tell me that Don Calixto. Will be working in the cattle industry now?” Manue Efe tells him, “no I mean he’s going to rich once more. He’s going to have part his inheritance, so he won’t pay taxes. You know those types of thing, Juana Valentina as the older sister. Will be the one that maximum benefits.” Maria Delia tells him, “no Manuel Efe what happens to Rubensito?” Manuel Efe tells her, “Rubensito will have to put up with a measely 3%. You can’t image Juana Valentina, you know how bossy she is. Acting like the only beneficiary. The fortune of my uncle Don Calixto Salguero. Remember she knows, and the rest they are going to try to win points. To see if they can get at least more.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh no too me this doesn’t seem right. Rubensito deserves the big part, because he has worked all his life with Don Calixto.” Manuel Efe tells her, “see how things are when money is in the middle. They are siblings Maria Delia.” Maria Delia asks, “should I tell Rubensito?” Manuel Efe tells her, “insituate it don’t just say it too his face. Plus don’t say, that it came from you. The truth is I don’t care, how Don Calixto cuts up his assets. Its his money, I already have mine. They are sisters.” Maria Delia simply shakes her head.

Its late, and the girls are back at the pink house. “I have reunited all of you to say one thing. We’re not going to go to a dance contest, or to have an attraction to a fair. Or to go to unjust fight, nor help out people from a disaster. We have done some marvelous things, all I want to do is talk.” Juana Matilde asks, “what is that all Tere? From my part, I’m going to tell you the truth. Very truthfully, apart from fighting with me. They have begun by fighting with Miguel. This shocks and annoys me, and I don’t have to talk too anybody.” There’s someone at the door. Juana Valentina utters, “I’ll get that you all continue talking with Terezalsura.” Tere tells them, “the only thing that I want is this.” Juana Manny tells them, “see that Juana Valentina. When is she going to stop bossying us around.” Juana Valentina opens the door, “oh Ruben.” Hope enters Ruben’s life. “Juana Valentina my love its good too see you like this once more.” Juana Valentina changes and coldly asks. “What do you want?” Angrily he tells her, “I’ve come to see my sisters.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey I can’t stop you so come on in.”

Juana Manny utters, “hi little brother.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh Ruben how delicious it is to see you.” Juana Calidad tells him, “ave maria purisima.” Ruben tells her, “sin pecado concebido.” Ruben kisses each of them. “I’ve come to say hello, to my sisters.” Juana Matilde tells him, “here is the happiness of the house.” Ruben asks, “and how is everyone?” Juana Manny tells him, “I’ve fine but very badly accompanied man.” Ruben tells her, “oh and here I thought everything had fixed itself.” Juana Bautista tells him, “that’s only going to happen. If everyone reflexes, and takes a personal account of their actions. They must put in plan, a way to get over this.” Juana Matilde sarcastically tells her, “oh the witch of the family has spoken. Oh yes your studies, are going oh so well. Are all of us helping you out in this or what?” Juana Calidad tells her, “Juana Bautisa nobody is perfect. Oh the saint of trinity.” Juana Valentina tells them, “that’s enough no more. Allow Terezalsura to talk please, do me a favor. If you have nothing else to say, I have many other important things to do.” Tere tells her, “yes mine is important Juana Valentina. It involves all of you, this fight has to stop right now right here right now.” Juana Manny tells her, “it seems Juana Valentina becoming bossy is catching Terezalsura.” Ruben tells them, “no Terezalsura is correct don’t you realize. Everything your doing is stupid.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen little brother I do love you but. You don’t have the right, to come here. To talk when you don’t know, what is going on here. You don’t have to live, with these four women under the same roof. Please I’m just saying for me, is now a punishment.” Ruben tells her, “listen we might not be living under the same roof but. Before we were, plus this isn’t a punishment. Nobody can live in peace, when one fights all the time.” Juana Manny tells him, “yes tell her that she’s the one that started it.” Juana Matilde utters, “yeah right.” Ruben tells them, “what is going on with all of you? Before all of you decided everything together. You all worked as a team, what happened?” Juana Calidad tells him, “a couple of days ago I wanted to discuss. Something strange, that had been going on. Nobody wanted to listen too me.” Juana Valentina ask, “what was it?” Juana Calidad tells them, “the muliple of money that’s showing up.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey I paid you attention. If you have forgotten, we both checked those numbers Juana Calidad. Yes she’s correct, something is going on here.”

Juana Manny tells her, “girl your just so naive to just say the least. Well to think that’s a miracle girl.” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes it is a miracle you boxer. Since you’ve been like this, it hasn’t multiplied.” Ruben asks, “wait a minute what are you talking about?” Juana Calidad tells him, “we’re getting more money. Its been showing up now on various occasions.” Ruben tells them, “maybe its just an error.” Juana Calidad ask, “why do you always think I’m the problem? No sir, there’s no errors. I’ve revised those numbers six times. Every since that plague destroyed the crops.” Ruben tells her, “ok ok listen please forgive me for doubting you. I didn’t want to blame you, there has to be a logical explinations for everything.” Juana Calidad tells him, “its the divine hand that is the explination. Now because of my sisters, now the lord won’t be giving us another miracle.” Juana Bautisa has had enough, “excuse me.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen Rubensito let me clarify something too you. I adore you, because your my brother. With you I’d live the rest of my life, but with these four no. Because I can’t stand them, hey become a nun once more. Yeah right a miracle.” Juana Calidad utters, “its best I keep quiet. I’m going to continue praying excuse me.” Juana Matilde utters, “see like always my sisters are a bunch of cowards. They don’t like to confront our problems. I’m telling you something, I’ve had about enough of being the only one that shows face.” Then she heads too her room, Tere utters. “Among the three, we have too do something.”

Juana Valentina tells her, “I have already told you Tere. I can organize everything but, I’m not going to order their hearts. In fact I don’t order anybodies hearts. I can’t get them to love me, nor to respect me.” Ruben tells them, “between the juanas there’s no confidence. When one says something, the others don’t believe them. That’s grave, when in reality there’s love. Plus with kindness, that is confidence.” Juana Valentina tells him, “confidence isn’t lost just because. Oh no one gets lost for one reason. A reason that is very important excuse me.” Ruben tells Tere, “hey Terezalsura what an uncomfortable situation.” Tere tells him, “yes Ruben and quite sad.” Ruben tells her, “we have to figure out a way to make them stop fighting.” Ruben tells them, ” Ruben tells them, ” Ruben tells them, ” Tere tells him, “I really don’t know what else too do now. Too me now, nothing comes too mind. Every moment that goes by, its going to get worse.”

(The song that’s played, is the same love song that was in YSBLF.)

Over at the dolorosa, Gualberto arrives. He goes to Octavio, “hey man why don’t you go next to Mauricio.” Octavio tells him, “hey no Gualberto I’ll stay here thanks.” Gualberto goes over to Miguel. “Hey how about you play a song with Octavio” Miguel tells him, “no I’ll sing but with someone else thanks.” Gualberto goes over to Mauricio, “hey Maudi why don’t you buy everyone around of beers. We can have a great party.” Mauricio tells him, “no listen if you want something to drink its on me. But leave me alone.” Gualberto tells Poncho, “see they are like four mules. I’ve tried everything, and they don’t even want to look at one another.” Poncho tells him, “please see Gualberto its useless. I tried doing the same thing before you showed up. See its mission impossible.” Gualberto tells him, “all because of four women.” Poncho tells him, ” see what these young girls do. They are just terrrible, just so you can notice.” Gualberto tells him, “yes and see how they all are.” Poncho tells him, “see that’s correct so you can see for yourself. Customers show up, hello greetings permit me give me a moment. Hey Octavio move it, listen all of you are using up tables. Customers are arriving, and I have no place too put them.” Octavio ask, “what do you want me to leave. Are you going to start fighting with me like everyone else?”

Poncho tells him, “no I’m not telling you too leave but. Hey all I’m asking is, for you too share the table with Mauricio. So then more people, can show up. I’ll be sad if you left, but I’ll be more sadder if all my clients take off. I will have no money coming in. Come on dude, go over there sorry for the wait. More people show up, good evening.” Mauricio turns his chair to face the bar. Octavio looks the other way and sits down. The next one to get pushed away is Orlando. But Orlando utters, “sure sorry.” He then heads to sit next to Miguel. But Miguel gets up, and moves his chair closer to the stage. In the end Orlando pays for his drink and leaves the bar. Next to leave is Mauricio, “bye guys.” Poncho utters, “yeah bye and here I thought they were going to at least say a few words to one another.” Gualberto tells him, “listen they are only talking to one another if they are insulting one another.” Poncho tells him, “you know what Gualberto. At first when the juanas arrived. Everyone of them chose who they wanted too be with. I said to myself, oh man now Gualberto and I are alone. But now I think, were the most fortunate of them all. Its great being alone, don’t you think?” Gualberto tells him, “listen I feel badly the thing is I still like Juana Bautista. But yes you have every reason for we are the fortunate ones.” Poncho tells him, “oh yes man there’s nothing more too say.”

The next morning at the pink house, Juana Bautista is leaving her bedroom. Juana Manny sees her, and returns too her bedroom. In the end she heads to the kitchen. Juana Manny leaves the bedroom again, and Juana Matilde sees her. Annoyed she returns to her bedroom. Downstairs Juana Calidad is heading to the kitchen. She see Juana Manny, and avoids her as she leaves the house. Then Juana Caldidad goes towards the kitchen. When she sees Juana Bautista, she goes to her room. Gathers her purse and leaves the house. Juana Bautisa is quite sad, but there’s nothing she can do. Juana Valentina comes out of her bedroom, and bumps into Juana Matilde. Who angrily tells her, “man in this house one can’t even walk.” She slams her door, and Juana Valentina simply stares at the door.


Over at the salguero house, Ruben is checking some paperwork in the livingroom. Calixto asks, “so tell me have your sisters reconciled yet?” Ruben tells him, “I only wish it were true old man but nothing.” Calixto tells him, “oh don’t you worry things will pass.” Ruben tells him, “listen before I head to the office I’ll stop over there. I just hope that last night, a miracle occured. Hopefully they have reconciled.” Calixto tells him, “well then I’ll see you at the office.” Ruben tells him, “now father when we arrive at the office. We have to deal with a problem. Remember some of the students, had to drop out of school because of the plague.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes man that is exactly what the pana tried to tell me the other day. I didn’t pay attention, I was so busy. At the office explain it better for me.” Ruben tells him, “sure father bye.”

Ruben arrives at the pink house. He sees Juana Manny and Octavio talking. Octavio utters, “hey Ruben how’s it going?” Ruben tells him, “hi Octavio Manny.” Octavio utters, “were fine I guess.” Todoelmundo is setting up the table. Ruben asks, “so any changes how is everyone?” Tere utters, “hi Ruben.” Todoelmundo tells him, “hi I’m fine thanks.” Ruben tells him, “hey I’m not referring too you but my sisters?” Todoelmundo tells him, “oh yes.” Tere tells them, “well the situation has changed. But its become worse son.” Ruben ask, “what do you mean are they still arguing?” Tere tells him, “man they don’t even talk too one another anymore.” Todoelmundo tells them, “no there has to be a solution too this. You see men in the olden days.” Tere touches her face, “please no more facts Todoelmundo. I’m like bored of hearing them.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well it not boring but before the big battles. People would do their battles in the soccer field. Sometimes its a bit violent, but there’s other times that its peaceful. I don’t know why, in this case its not going too work out.”

Juana Matilde comes down, “hi Ruben Terezalsura Todoelmundo.” Tere tells her, “hi dear.” Miguel tells him, “hey Todoelmundo how’s it going?” Juana Valentina yells out, “hey Terezalsura make sure Juana Matilde doesn’t leave. Its her turn, to wash the dirty clothes.” Juana Matilde tells her, “inform Juana Valentina I have already washed mine. Goodbye you four.” The guys utter, “yes bye.” Once they leave so does Juana Manny and Octavio. “Bye Ruben, Tere, Todoelmundo all be well.” Todoelmundo utters, “yes bye.” Juana Valentina ask, “hey and you want me to talk too my sisters? Well what for?”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona is covering her nose. As Manuel Efe is talking. “Now then aunt Dona, I have talked with my uncle. He wants to do business together, but right now my focus is with getting rid of the junas.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh yes yes he’s gotten that in his head. Well I think its a good idea nephew.” Manuel Efe tells her, “sure no problem but right now I’m dealing with something else.” Dona Dona ask, “yes and what is that going too be?” Manuel Efe tells her, “I’m still trying to get the juanas to leave corozal. Aunt every day, that the days passes. Juana Valentina continues to claw, that thorn inside of me more and more. Now I have the opportunity of gold, aunt the juanas are fighting between themselves.” Dona Dona asks, “fighting but don’t you say the iligitimates are really united?” Manuel Efe tells her, “well not now they are fighting. So its now time to attack.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh I don’t believe you nephew. Your always talking about attacking, to get rid of them from corozal. Nothing has happened.” Manuel Efe gets annoyed, “listen please lets not change this topic. If you want, I can list every single thing that I’ve done. To try to get rid of the juanas, I’ll start listing them now.” Dona Dona tells him, “now then nephew calm yourself now.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.” Dona Dona tells him, “sincerely I believe what’s going between them it just doesn’t benefit us.” Manuel Efe tells her, “aunt yes it will you see when is divided. One does lose their strengths.” Dona Dona asks, “now then Manuel Efe forgive me in changing the subject. I need your help, its an important matter.” Manuel Efe asks, “well of course aunt what ever you need.” Dona Dona tells him, “for the wedding of Ruben Calixto. I can’t put on the same dress as before. For all the guests, have already seen the last dress. Could you once again help me, contact Mr. Savareti.” Manuel Efe tells her, “sure no problem aunt.” Dona Dona ask, “sure just inform me later. Now then nephew, what did you put on your hair?” Manuel Efe tells her, “its a french conditioner from france. In the end she leaves, he utters. What’s going on with my aunt Dona now? I mentioned the juanas, and she wasn’t interested in this topic at all. She acted all indifferent. What’s wrong with my aunt Dona? Daaa.”

Ruben is at the office with Calixto. “Father now then when the plague hit, many students had to stop going to school. Some of them helped their families. Plus others just couldn’t afford their school tuition.” Calixto tells him, “man I didn’t even think about that part of the tragedy.” Ruben tells him, “yes father they have to repeat the year. They have to do it starting from January.” Calixto utters, “poor kids.” Ruben tells him, “I thought about a solution. Put them in intense school programs. Re-do the courses that they lost. Santiago has been talking with a lot of professors. They are willing too collaborate.” Calixto asks, “and who is this Santiago?” Ruben tells him, “Santiago is the owner’s son of the nearby ranch.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes son of Alonso in sincelejo.” Ruben tells him, “he’s also very worried about those boys. We have to hire professors right now, but we can’t afford too pay them.” Calixto tells him,”money its always the missing money that’s the problem.” Ruben tells them, “money money oh old man I’ll be right back.” Calixto yells out, “son Ruben where are you going?”

Juana Calidad is walking with Mauricio. “Oh Mauricio thank you for spending the day with me.” Mauricio tells her, “no thank you for everytime I’m with you. You make me the most happiest man in the world Cadi. Oh this reminds me, I have been talking with my father. He told me, that he’s going to talk to his capenter man. He will make you the most beaufiful floats. Oh my Cadi, you will show everyone how beautiful you are. When your the queen.” Juana Calidad tells him, “Mauricio listen I’m sorry it pitys me that I’m bothering your father with such matters.” Mauricio tells him, “no you can ask me to do anything.” They pass by Octavio’s workship, they stare at one another but they in the end walk by. Juana Manny is furious, “hey if I had a hammer I would knock some sense into them. You don’t look at decent people that way.” Octavio tells him, “now don’t burn yourself up my firecracker.” Octavio tells her, “listen they don’t know how to look at people. Because they are uneducated people. So what do you think about the wood. That I’m going to make your float.” Juana Manny tells him, “hey that’s very lovely and very stronge.”

Back at the pink house, Juana Valentina has started packing. Tere asks, “what’s going on here?” Juana Valentina tells her, “we’re leaving Tere.” Tere asks, “where and why?” Juana Valentina tells her, “we have nothing too do here that’s why.” Tere asks, “may I at least know too where?” Juana Valentina tells her, “were else back to Barranquilla.” Tere tells her, “Barranquilla but you told me. We would never step back there every again. Considering those theives, that stole everything.” Juana Valentina tells her, “but there are people there that can help us. So then we can start again.” Tere tells her, “Juana Valentina why are you so stubborn. Remember when we arrived here in Corozal. Ruben Salguero had kept you up all night. Every since you met him. I told you then, we should have returned.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well then begin packing then.” Tere tells her, “no Juana Valentina things have now changed. You have four sisters, if we leave your going to make peace with them. For I know you, when we arrive in Barranquilla. Your going to be regretful, that you left Corozal.” Juana Valentina angrily tells her, “who understands you. Who does understand you? You don’t like nothing, first you kept on insisting and insisting. That I had too stop thinking about Ruben. Become blind and everything. Now that everything has ended, hoping and wishing I could forget him. But now your just not satisfied Terezalsura.” Tere tells her, “listen you leaving Ruben I am pleased about that. He doesn’t suit you. But fighting, with your sisters is another matter.” Juana Valentina tells her, “but I have too keep my mind on other things Tere. I have to keep myself active, so Ruben isn’t in my head again. The only thing that I got for it. Is for my sisters, to hate me because I boss them around. Plus that I am bothering them, nothing else.” Tere tells her, “your going to extremes Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no the bad thing I’m doing is this. I can’t stop thinking about Ruben. No all the problems are over, were leaving right now. Stop complicating things.” Tere asks, “do you think by heading to Barranquilla. Your going to forget Ruben Salguero.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no for I will never forget Ruben Tere no matter where I go. She sadly picks up the portrait of her sisters. Well at least over there, I am not bothering nobody. There’s nobody will bother me.”

Ruben goes over to the hotel. “Excuse me have you seen Todelmundo?” The receptionist tells him, “you mean Egidio Todoelmundo oh he should arrive any minute now.” Ruben tells her, “thank you.” Manuel Efe shows up, “oh Ruben hey have you been looking for me?” Ruben tells him, “no I’m looking for Todoelmundo.” Manuel Efe tells him, “well I came by to change my clothes. I have to head over to your fiances house. She has too chose a new menu, for your reception party for your wedding.” Ruben asks, “what’s wrong with the previous one what it doesn’t work?” Manuel Efe tells him, “she thinks that the last one. Well it will bring bad luck, considering her father and all. You do understand right?” Ruben tells him, “well then I wish you the best of luck.” Manuel Efe asks, “so are you going to come with me?” Ruben tells him, “hey I don’t know nothing about that. Hey Nina how about my keys? Hey thank you.” Ruben asks, “Manuel Efe what did you put on your head? It seems you took a bath with oil and water?” Manuel Efe tells him, “daaa I’m guessing this conditioner isn’t as good as I thought.” Ruben simply laughs.

Ruben turns and sees Todoelmundo. “Oh Todoelmundo hi, so what did you say this morning at the pink house?” Todoelmundo asks, “regarding what?” Ruben tells him, “you know that people deal their arguements using different methods.” Todoelmundo tells him, “well yes that’s true and everyone knows it.” Ruben tells him, “todoelmundo I now have the solution so my sisters can stop fighting. I’m going to need your help.”

Calixto is visting Judge Geremias Guerra. “Oh Juana Valentina is a wonderful marvelous girl comparde. I’m thinking not as a father figure. Just saying that, she wasn’t for you Geremias. In fact Margarita Cruz, is the best companion your ever going too get.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh yes she just loves the subject of marriage. She seems like a young girl again. Where are we going to get married? Where are we going to have the party? Where are we going on our honeymoon?” Calixto asks, “are you sure your happier as she is?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “or more so comparde. Can you just image it, at this stage of my life. To find a good friend, to continue the rest of one’s life?” Calixto asks, “will I be the godfather at your wedding.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “of course you will be. The godfather of the wedding salute.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “salute its great Calixto that were able to talk. With some sense of calm.” Calixto tells him,”well I am also looking forward too getting some rest. This business with the harvest, has basically resulted in a lot of work. Its been quite difficult.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well its what you were crying about. Its almost seems like a dream. That all of your troubles, and discomforts are almost over.” Calixto tells him,”yes even though there are some things. That do trouble me, I can’t really enjoy my life. Its the threat of Dona Dona, that everyone of my daughters must be engaged. Before the start of the harvest, they will be given her blessing and better treatment. The one that isn’t, has too leave corozal.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh yes now I recall that threat very careful.” Calixto tells him, “well four are at least are engaged. They have a solid foundation, and do want to marry. But Juana Valentina, well there’s no man that interests her.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “now what does Dona think in this regard?” Calixto tells him, “well there’s my fear comparde. At least at this point in time. I thought she would stop being a parakeet. In wanting the juanas to leave corozal. But at this date, she hasn’t said nothing. So I’m not going to talk or mention it, especially these days.”

Todoelmundo has returned to see Tere. “Oh Todoelmundo do you think, that by me mentioning Barranquilla. It was put into Juana Valentina’s head? Oh you know her quite well by now.” Todoelmundo tells her, “but Tere in Barranquilla I will go hungry. Over there I don’t know nobody. I can’t go back and forth, doing various other jobs. But if you are going to Barranquilla, I’m going with you.” Tere utters, “your so very beautiful. Now then changing the subject todoelmundo, why don’t we discuss the girls they do have me so very worried. Nothing will make them reconcile. I know that 10 years will go by. Juana Valentina will regret it. What she could have done, and didn’t do.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well that is what were considering.” Tere tells him, “Todoelmundo I am pretty bored talking about the same thing over and over. Well are we going too do? How are going to make, those girls. To stop fighting and get back together.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well that is why I came.” Tere tells him, “what so you can help me think better?” Todoelmundo tells her, “no Tere Ruben got a sensational idea.” Tere asks, “really what is it? Do tell me what are the details?” Todoelmundo tells her, “before I do that we have to promise. That we’re going to help him out ok.” Tere tells him, “sure I’m certain.”

Calixto tells the judge, “oh I haven’t even had a chance to stop by the girls house. They must be preparing the final details for that pagent. Here’s hoping, that they are behaving like sisters.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “I don’t get it why don’t you explain yourself. What’s going on?” Calixto tells him, “well you know they are fighting among sisters. Ruben is quite worried, but I think this is going to pass.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh yes Margarita mentioned something too that effect too me. Yes I am sure, that this will pass. In fact it probably has already passed.” Ruben shows up, “hi godfather. Father I thought you’d be at the ranch.” Calixto tells him, “I decided to rest a bit and talk to my friend here. Trying to solve the problems of the world.” Ruben tells them, “well its great that your both here. I’m going to need the help of you two. Especially you godfather.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “now then even though I don’t know. What your planning, I’m offering my services.” Ruben tells him, “fine then go back 30 years.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “what do you mean?” Ruben tells him, “well once you mentioned when you were younger. That you were a coach.” Calixto asks, “now then explain yourself so we can understand you.” Ruben tells him, “well I have a great solution so the juanas. Can get back together.”

Todoelmundo and Tere are now standing by the dinningroom table. Juana Manny comes down and sees everyone. “Oh no if your had planned, on making Todoelmundo calling us down like a crazy person. To get us all here, so we can talk. Well your wasting my time, as well as you Terezalsura.” Juana Matilde tells her, “mine as well Tere. I just tired of fighting.” Tere tells her, “well no its not but I still think its a good idea. Its simple Ruben needs to talk too all of you.” Ruben has come here on numerous occasions. To talk too us, and gather us together. So why now all the mystery and suspense.” Tere tells them, “well he would like all of you to meet him at his office.” Juana Calidad asks, “why in his office? Oh sor Juana Ines de la cruz, please don’t let anything bad happen.” Juana Bautista asks, “Ruben wants to do a business deal with us? That’s very strange, considering he’s a sagitarious. The archer tells one, what he’s thinking about. What he plans on doing, they are frank and direct. Without any mysteries.” Juana Calidad tells her, “don’t talk in contrast of Ruben. Everyone was made how god wanted them too be. Not like what the signs say. You know what Juana Bautista, I haven’t got the guts to say this until now. You can’t spend your entire life, seeing things through your blasted signs.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen Juana Calidad I have proof I can give you. That my methods are proven fact.” Juana Calidad tells her, “the only thing I know is that destiny doesn’t exisit. Is the voluntary hand of the divine.” Juana Bautista tells her, “great that is all that I needed. That you want to have, a philosphical arguement with me.”

Juana Matilde tells them, “see did you notice that. You two ruin everything, looking back I don’t realize how I could have lived with you people.” Juana Valentina tells her, “enough already let Terezalsura talk.” Juana Manny utters, “here we have a dictator. Its worse getting hit by Robusta Coronado.” Todoelmundo tells them, “well that’s enough Ruben has asked me to take you over there. So I’m not leaving here, until I bring you all there.” Juana Matilde tells him, “if it isn’t the cell keeper man. You know what, I have stopped confiding in you.” Tere tells her, “cell keeper or no enough with the insults and no more arguing Juana Matilde.” Todoelmundo asks, “I’m going on the first turn who’s coming with me?” Juana Valentina tells them, “first will be Juana Matilde with Juana Manny. The second Juana Calidad, and Juana Bautista I am not going.” As she’s ready to head upstairs, Tere grabs her. “Oh no your going as well. Even if I have to drag you by your hair to take you there.” Todoelmundo utters, “first trip I’m taking you two now come with me.” They argue and have no choice but to follow him.

Over at the judge’s place. Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “Ruben what your asking is crazy.” Ruben tells him, “godfather I don’t think its a crazy idea. Considering a man your age, is going to get remarried.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well I’m not that young man as before.” Ruben tells him, “well you can show that age hasn’t won time. I know that yes I can count on you. This is very important, you can’t fail me.” Calixto tells him, “hey Ruben its true but just think about the judge. It might be a hard job on him.” Ruben tells them, “well then this is how I’m going too leave things. I’m leaving because, my sisters should be arriving at my office any minute now. Godfather I knew you were with me bye father.” Judge Geremias Guerra yells out, “Ruben godson get back here.” Ruben yells out, “thank you godfather see you later.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “see that he’s been spending a lot of time with Juana Valentina he has got her. Well her being a rafaga.” Calixto simply glances at him.

Over at the pink house, Juana Bautista is with Orlando. “Now then I’m leaving today, but if things go well I’ll be back the day after tomorrow.” Juana Bautisa tells him, “alright then my the fortunate destiny go with you.” Orlando tells her, “yes may the good fortunate heard you my love. Even if they pay me half, that would be good enough. For them to pay me more, I have to wait for a specialist professor to read it. For another to fact check it, that would take many days. What I want is to spend more time with you.” Todoelmundo returns, “you ready?” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes ready.” Orlando utters, “hi Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells them, “I’ll go get Juana Manny.” Juana Bautisat tells him, “something strange is going on. For on various occasions. We have met with our brother, but this time we have to go see him at his office.” Orlando tells her, “well I don’t see any problems with that. He probably has something, in his office that he wants to show you all. So don’t you worry.” Juana Bautisa utters, “really?” Orlando utters, “yes now calm down. Dear I notice that, your very strange lately. What’s going on?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I saw Juana Valentina’s suitcase half made.” Orlando asks, “is she planning on going anywhere?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I don’t know lately. I’ve only talked to her, on the strictly necessary basics.” Orlando tells her, “this world is very strange here you two are fighting. But are still worried over what she’s doing.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen Juana Valentina will never stop worrying me. It has something to do with blood.” Orlando tells her, “yes I do understand.” Todoelmundo utters, “lets go.” Juana Bautista utters, “yes lets go. They hug and kiss, lets just see what destiny has prepared for us.” Orlando tells her, “this seems like its a farewell for the rest of our lives.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I hope its not for I do really love you Orlando.” Orlando tells her, “I’m really going to help you my life. But I assure you, I’ll be right back. I hope things will be well, bye guys.” Todoelmundo utters, “bye wolf man.” Then the three are off.

Dona Dona is with Margarita Cruz. “I knew you would be here sooner or later.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “you weren’t mistaken.” Dona Dona tells her, “well then do sit down.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “yes thank you. I just image it would be quite early than later. You would be happy, giving me these news.” Margarita Cruz asks, “what news are you refering about?” Dona Dona tells her, “that your going to get married.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well I really didn’t think I would be discussing this topic with you.” Dona Dona ask, “and why not? I was very happy finding this out. Now that you now have a man on your own. You won’t go after your friends husbands again.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “now you know why I didn’t want to mention that detail with you. For it gives you footing, too make those disgusting commentaries.” Dona Dona asks, “so then why are you here then?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “to inform you of who your son is really in love with. Just like I promised you.” Dona Dona tells him, “oh Margarita why don’t we stop touching that topic.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well its for my own tranquility Dona.” Dona Dona tells her, “well I just want too say that you have always been mistaken. Ruben isn’t in love with any of them.”

Dona Dona tells her, “I really do wish I could believe what your telling me. The only thing that I’m certain of. Is what I saw in my son’s eyes, when he was looking at whoever.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well apart from discarding the rest the only one left was Juana Valentina. Geremias and I believe, that once there was a love. Now were convinced on the contrary.” Dona Dona tells her, “I told you we shouldn’t discuss that topic again. Your convictions change directions. Like a russian moutain winds, so lets leave this topic over and done with.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “well the attitudes and looks have changed. We figured that its now looks between siblings. The same relationship Ruben, could be having with his other sisters.” Dona Dona tells her, “they are step-sisters. Oh regarding them, what are they up too now?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “they all want to participate in the harvest pagent.” Dona Dona utters, “great now they want to exhibit themselves. Oh yes that is what they want, since their mothers didn’t teach them. How to be modest.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “it seems its my time too leave Dona goodbye.” Once she leaves, Dona Dona sarcastically utters, “between them there’s only a relationship among siblings. Oh dear if only I can truly, undercover the real relationship of Ruben and Juana Valentina. No I must do something, if this comes out there will be quite the scandal. Or else talk about Francisco. No no no, Ruben Calixto is going to marry Maria Delia. For me to rest in peace, but I thank god that Yolanda Del Cabrales stays where she’s going too be.”

Over at the office, the girls are starting to get anxious. Juana Matilde tells him, “listen could you please just tell us what’s going on. I really am in a hurry.” Ruben asks, “and Juana Valentina what happened to her?” Juana Manny tells him, “she will be arriving last with Todoeomundo.” Ruben tells them, “fine we will wait till she shows up. Now I’m going to be making a call. The girls touch everything in the office. “Hello may I please talk to Santiago. Thank you, oh hi Santiago how’s it going. Yes I’m also fixing up all the details. Yes yes your in charge, of the stuff in sincelejo. While I deal with the part of Corozal. Yes I’m also going to pay for that. Yes everything, will be under my account yes. Yes well see you soon Santiago bye.” Juana Valentina shows up and asks, “now then what’s going on?” Ruben tells her, “why don’t you be comfortable. Now then I’m going, to be very clear so you can understand me. I don’t know, if you have noticed but. The sons of the farmers, that were affected by the plague had too quit school. To help and maintain their families.”

Over at the pink house, the guys have arrived. Tere tells them, “now right at this moment the girls are with Ruben at his office.” Octavio tells her, “Todoelmundo has too looks for them everywhere. But Ruben has to get them to show up at his office like this. Just like a certain father of a politician’s son. That I know far too well.” Mauricio tells her, “it seems this short guy is still spouting off his envy rants.” Octavio tells him, “hey its not my fault that someone copies what I think about. If the politician and the warehouse’s son. Didn’t come here, everything would be so very calm.” Miguel tells him, “oh really if it bothers the man. That is so full of curiosity. What are we prohibted by law as well?” Tere yells out, “that’s enough from you guys. Your just like the fighting juanas. Oh caramba, I’m going to get the door. You better not start fighting.” Miguel tells her, “fighting is for people that can’t argue things without fists being involved. Not like an ex-friend of mine.” Octavio tells him, “its strange that Mr. Tejeros talks about ideas. That everyone knows, he’s as flighty as his own girlfriend.” Miguel tells him, “your lucky that I’m not hitting you right now with my fists. I am intelligent, but I also use different arms.” Octavio laughs and tells him, “you smart oh yes dreaming doesn’t cost nothing.” Maria Delia shows up, “hello everyone.” They utter, “hello Maria Delia.” Maria Delia asks, “are you also waiting for the juanas?” They utter, “yes.” Mauricio tells her, “oh yes but they are over there with your fiance.” Maria Delia gets angry, “oh why didn’t he just tell me for me to be there. Oh sometimes Ruben, does me things that I don’t like. I wish I was over there, so I can find out what’s going on.” Mauricio tells her, “listen they might be discussing family matters.” Maria Delia tells them, “but man I’m almost a part of the family. Soon were going to be married, or have you all forgotten?”

Octavio tells her, “oh no we haven’t forgotten.” Mauricio tells her, “yes and thank you so very much for the invitation. My mother will be confirming our presense there.” Maria Delia tells them, “well thank you Mauricio plus all of you guys have been invited as well. The thing is the invitations have yet to be delivered.” They utters, “thank you.” Tere ask, “care for a juice?” They utters, “yes.” Tere utters, “excuse me.” Maria Delia tells them, “now then since were waiting for the Juanas’s arrival. Why don’t I mention all the preparations for the wedding.” Octavio tells her, “you know something how about you tell them. I’m going to help out Terezalsura.” Miguel utters, “me as well I’ll help out Terezalsura.” Mauricio gets up, but he’s stopped. “No Mauricio sit down here I want too talk too you. I just hope that you and Juana Calidad, get married just like me and Rubensito. I’m so glad that your her boyfriend, but sometimes I do pity her.” Mauricio asks, “pity for what?” Maria Delia tells him, “well you know because of what her sisters say about her.” Mauricio asks, “what do you mean?” Maria Delia tells him, “what don’t you know well the thing is… In everything that they do or act. They think she’s a bit stupid.” Mauricio uttes, “you mean to say they think she’s an idiot?” Maria Delia tells him, “yes.” Mauricio repeats, “her sisters think she’s an idiot?” Maria Delia tells him,”yes and everyone is asking how can you be dating. Well a girl like that.” Mauricio angrily replies, “maybe they think I’m an idiot as well.” Maria Delia tells him, “I’m guessing that is so.”

Back at the office, Ruben tells them. “Now then, that is why I have asked you all here today. Now then, what do you all have to say about this?” Juana Matilde tells him, “boy you have hit your head for you’ve gone complete crazy.” Ruben tells her, “Juana Matilde no what I have said isn’t crazy thoughts.” Juana Manny tells her, “well I would do it if I were alone. Well like this forget it.” Juana Calidad tells him, “I’m not going to do it badly accompanied Ruben. I feel pitty for you, and may god forgive me but no. Don’t you count with me.” Ruben asks, “and you what do you have to say about this?” Juana Bautisa tells him, “oh you have left me a bit unsettled Ruben. I’d like to consider it carefully, before giving you an answer.” Ruben tells them, “now then all of you think about this clearly. Then tomorrow morning, you give me your definate answer. I know that if you really put your head into this. Your going to say yes.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen nobody has asked me my opinion. But one doesn’t have to do a consultation, to see what needs to be done. I want to talk too you all in private. Ruben leaves and she tells them. We are all going to help out, its in us to give back please.” Juana Manny tells her, “listen didn’t you get it clear in your head. When are you going to stop ordering us around.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Juana Manny what is clear is our roses. Don’t have to effect, those poor children that need our help. You remember, when we helped the unfortunate poor, when the plague showed up. Do you all recall, have you thought for once. What would have happened, if we hadn’t have done nothing for them. If we wouldn’t have given them medicines and things. Listen they need us, I’m not going to play deaf when they are calling out no sir. Girls I know for a fact, neither of us are going to relaxed if we don’t do this.”

Juana Calidad tells them, “yes Juana Valentina is correct helping others in their time of need. Is what needs to be done.” Juana Matilde tells her, “fine ok I’ll do it. I want everyone to be clear on this. I’m not doing this because you have decided too do this. I’m doing this because of those kids. I would feel bad if I didn’t do it.” Juana Valentina tells them, “listen it would be easy for me to say no. Then go back to Barranquilla. For that is my intention, but one has to learn to seperate what’s personal from the rest. I will help them out.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes because you are an aries. You can’t show your back its not your sign. The kids can also count on me.” Juana Manny tells them, “well I’m going to do this for Ruben. It doesn’t mean I want to continue being your friends.” Juana Valentina tells them, “something between us has broken. Things will never be like it was, I know it might be important to all of you but its the truth. Then she goes too the door. Ruben you may come back.” Ruben returns and asks, “well then what have you all decided?” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes Ruben you may count on us.” Ruben asks, “how about you?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes me as well.” Ruben tells them, “I’m so glad that I could count on all of you.”

Back at the pink house, the guys are bored silly hearing Maria Delia’s plans. “Now then the honeymoon, is where we planned on going before. Its just a shame that Rubensito can’t fly a plane. Its the only thing that we need, to make this trip fantastic.” Mauricio grabs the glasses, “ok I’m going to take this back to Terezalsura. She might need help, so I’ll be right back.” Octavio utters, “hey I’ll go as well.” Maria Delia tells him, “thank you Mauricio. Then she grabs Miguel, “oh no your going to sit with me. I want too talk too you. Hey between the two of us, I’m going to tell you something. I admire you.” Miguel ask, “and why are you saying that. Where is that coming from?” Maria Delia tells him, “well boy being a friend of the juanas seems to be very good for you but. When one is looked upon with bad eyes. Things are probably very difficult.” Miguel asks, “I don’t understand you.” Maria Delia tells him, “listen the juanas accept the other boyfriends. With certain agreement, but with you they are reseved. Hey don’t tell me, that you haven’t noticed?” Miguel tells her, “no.” Maria Delia tells him, “well it seems you are a bit flighty as well. Juana Matilde and you, are truly made for one another.” Miguel utters, “so it seems I’m not well liked by my future sisters-in-law.” Maria Delia tells him, “it seems they think. You don’t have a great personality than the rest.”

Octavio shows up, “listen inform Juana Manny I can’t wait any longer for her. Tell her I’ll see her tomorrow.” Mauricio tells her, “yes inform Juana Calidad the same thing. But do tell her, I’ll be visiting her tomorrow morning very early. When these gentlemen, are still in their beds heard me.” Miguel tells her, “yes tell Juana Matilde the same thing. Ok Tere bye.” Octavio uttes, “yes bye Tere.” They utter, “bye Maria Delia.” Tere tells them, “well I don’t think the juanas will be available. For they have to wake up pretty early tomorrow.”

The next morning at a park, all the girls are running. Todoelmundo is screaming at them, “yes move it move it. Yes with a lot of attention and ethusiasium. One more round you get water, yes everyone move it movie it. Now then five more turns, you all are doing pretty good.” Ruben shows up, “hey Todoelmundo how are our players.” Todoelmundo tells him, “hey Ruben this is more difficult that I thought.” Ruben asks, “why are you saying this?” Todoelmundo tells him, “they hardly look at one another. I don’t think this is going too work.” Ruben tells him, “todoelmundo yes a group that doesn’t work together is a bad team.” Todoelmundo tells him, “yes those few words I understand but. I hope slowly by slowly, they will give in.” Ruben tells him, “yes they will but use all your methods and tactics.” Todoelmundo tells him, “ok boys have energy come on move it.” Juana Matilde yells out, “your a man without sin. Your going to finish us off.” Todoelmundo simply laughs, as does Ruben. Ruben tells him, “I have a meeting with our sponsers.” Todoelmundo tells him, “yes may it go well for you.” Ruben tells him, “you know what you could try. Either using their pride against them, or build up the other team.” Todoelmundo tells him, “sure I’ll give it a shot.” Ruben tells them, “Well then see you later. I have tons to do still, girls I haven’t met the other girls yet but. I’m sure they aren’t as tough as you all. Come on have energy girls. You all can do it.” Ruben glances at Juana Valentina before taking off.


bannerEPISODE 94


Ruben is trying to finish his job, but Manuel Efe has arrived and is bothering him. “Hey I went over to the pink house. Nobody is there, I went back to the hotel looking for Todoelmundo. If he could give me more information about them. I didn’t find him either, I said too myself. He speaks in french, well I sometimes I talk to myself in french. Its also a way to practice the language. Well sometimes, its in Italian anyway. In this town nobody talks french nor italian. So what am I going too do then. Well then I have to me myself. Well I said to myself, then in spanish. I don’t understand nothing. The only one that should know, something about the juanas. Well its Ruben, so that is why I’m here.” Ruben tells him, “yes they are training.” Manuel Efe utters, “training?” Ruben tells him, “yes or should I say it in french for you too understand me.” Manuel Efe asks, “what for anyway?” Ruben tells him, “for a soccer game.” Manuel Efe tells him, “listen just tell me the entire story once and for all. Don’t just mention tid bits here and there.” Ruben tells him, “its very simply Manuel Efe the juanas. Will be participating in a soccer game, that benefits the children of the farmers. That had to stop going to school, because of the plague. So now then, I have to talk to the sponsors for the soccer game.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey you do what ever your doing.” Ruben asks, “have you manage to talk too them?” Juanita tells him, “no I haven’t yet.” Manuel Efe tells him, “a soccer game full of women. Yes people in the states, would understand that. Women participate in various sports over there. Daaa here in corozal, never would I have thought it.”

Todoelmundo is getting the girls too do some stretches. “Now then 22,23, 24,25. Girls stretch those muscles, that you haven’t used in a long while. 26,27,28,29,30. Yes very good, now then get some rest see you all tomorrow.” Juana Calidad tells him, “what your doing Todoelmundo is a sin. Your making us all suffer so.” Juana Matilde tells him, “a sin your doing a crime heard me.” Juana Manny yells out, “what you all are rag dolls or what? These are the training methods.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’m not against this but there must be an equilibrium you must start slow then fast. You making us do everything all at once. That is just too much, one can’t do this.” Juana Valentina tells them, “hey the trainer is Todoelmundo nobody else. We have too pay attention too him. Or else why say yes to playing. Oh what failure of sportsmanship.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen we all have a right to have an opinion. Yes if one doesn’t have an opinion. One doesn’t have personality, if one has an opinion its bad as well. Especially you Juana Valentina, I’ve had about enough with all of you up to my crown. Hey no fregue.” Juana Valentina utters, “thank you.” Juana Calidad tells them, “you know what its true. If I don’t say it, more scandalous. But I am a decent person, but everyone is an idiot. Listen too me I’m not an idiot.”

(When did Mauricio, have a chance to talk to Juana Calidad? To tell her what her sisters thought about her?)

Juana Valentina utters, “why would she say that?” Juana Manny tells her, “the nun just flipped out. If I continue listening too the stupid things. That my sisters have to say. I’m going to end up the same way. Hey Todoelmundo tomorrow at the same time.” Todoelmundo utters, “yes the same time.” Juana Bautista asks, “trainer may I leave now so I can head home to shower and change? I also need some rest, hopefully this won’t bother the older sister. Who thinks she’s superior to the rest excuse me.” Juana Valentina looks at Tere and tells her, “see Tere see even if I open my mouth to say something. Even if its just to drink water. See how my sisters react, it bothered them oh how beautiful. I said were going to win, I gave him my word. We’re going to win, but as soon as this is done. Were packing up and leaving here. This is so boring, I hope too never see this town ever again.” Tere utters, “see that Todoelmundo. I don’t think this is going too work.” Todoelmundo tells her, “of course it has all the ingredients that it could work Terezalsura. We get the juanas to work all together, for a great cause. Soccer is played as a team, like Ruben says. That way they can talk to one another, instead of insulting one another like they were.” Tere utters, “oh yes well then lets go then. She gets up and yells in pain. Oh todoelmudo you were very tough sonny.”

Manuel Efe is having a rant, “yes in women one can’t count on them. Here I thought, that Maria Delia was doing a great job. Dividing the juanas, and just look. They are all going to work as a team for a soccer match. To divide and conquer is the saying. But Maria Delia, isn’t even a great gossiper. Its so easy, anyway its my only arms in this that I can use. She’s the only one, and I don’t have anymore. Oh yuck, what did they sell me for my hair.”

At the pink house, Todoelmundo is with the guys. “Now what’s important listen you all, you all give them energy and support them in this.” Tere tells them, “yes boys you have been helping them. In everything, that the juanas have been doing.” Ocatvio tells her, “well I’m just saying. That I’m talking for myself, for I don’t even know these men. What I want to say Tere, Juana Manny knows that she has my help and support. Very unconditional, well till the end.” Miguel tells him, “Juana Matilde also knows she can count on my help and support. Well its not in repeating, the presense of Mr. Portoreal. I also have a great personality.” Todoelmundo tells them, “well go too where they are traning. Give them the support over there boys.” Mauricio tells him,”listen I wake up at 5am so I can join my Cadi for church. Of course I’m going to support her in this as well.” Juana Calidad utters, “ave maria purisima.” Mauricio utters, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Matilde ask, “Tere I want a rum please.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen here drinking rum with sports doesn’t go along well together. Your now a soccer player. Drink a lemonade, its more healthy.” Miguel is ready to give her his juice. Juana Matilde angrily replies, “Miguel finish drinking that for were leaving here. You stop being so bold girl, if I want a rum I’m drinking it and that’s final.” Tere grabs her face, Juana Valentina utters. “Girl Juana Matilde grow up.” Miguel takes Juana Matilde out of the house. Tere uttes, “dear lord dear lord.” Juana Valentina utters, “see that Terezalsura. Were from different distinctive worlds. Its just like this.” Tere utters, “unbelieveable all of you are a bunch of spoiled brats that’s what you are. Hey your making me so very bored.” Juana Valentina utters, “at least they have someone supporting them. I have nobody, I am alone.” Tere gives her a hug, “you have me so relax.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh yes I have you and your scolding me.”

Outside Juana Matilde tell Miguel. “You know what I think Miguel, everything that my sisters tell me. Is for me to feel badly, they want to hurt me.” Miguel tells her, “you know something I just think its repeated by my ex-friends. Yes I don’t like it either but, I do feel awful.” Juana Matilde utters, “this just shocks me. You know something, intead of thinking about stupid things. Lets go for a walk, this pink house is more boring than every.” Miguel utters, “yes lets go now.”

Next to leave the house is Juana Calidad and Mauricio. “Listen Cadi, I thought clearly and doubted in telling you. But in the end, that’s why I called you last night. I had too tell you, what your sisters really thought about you. I just had too tell you.” Juana Calidad tells him, “if I were that stupid like my sisters said. I wouldn’t have been able, to take care of this house financially. It has been quite difficult Mauricio, let me tell you.” Mauricio tells her, “listen I know that and you don’t have too repeat it. Look at me my love, don’t think about that at all. Just forget all about it. Ok lets go, you can image arriving late at a meeting with Dona Dona.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well let the lord protect us.” Mauricio tells her, “yes plus favor us as well. I wonder what she wants?”

Juana Manny asks Octavio, “hey scary frog what do you think that Dona Dona wants to tell us?” Octavio tells her, “well I don’t know firecracker we’re just going to have too. Well hold our curiosity until its our turn to see her. For I’m not asking that politician.” Juana Manny tells him, “well I’m not asking the nun either.”

Todoelmundo tells Juana Bautista, “its such a shame Juana Bautista seeing you all this way. Before it was united for everything, now it seperate for everything.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well the negative parts of the signs have come out. What’s going on in our astrology, well it hasn’t favoured us.” Juana Valentina looks at Todoelmundo, “well I think we should have a proper training schedule. We can do a theory one, you know explain to us clearly the rules of soccer. Hey you have paper and pen right?” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes its right here. We will do it right here, figuring out everything right now.” Juana Manny annoyed goes to the door with Octavio. “Man nothing compares to her man. Oh my scary frog, I’ll make a goal too just show my sisters how good I really am.” Octavio tells her, “yes my firecracker your also going to be the queen of the harvest.” Juana Manny yells out, “my carriage will be the best of everyone.” Then they take off.

Juana Calidad and Mauricio are in the room. Mauricio asks, “hey why are we in this room anyway Cadi.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well I don’t know. She only asks people in here, when there’s something very important too discuss. Nobody is suppose to bother her, when she’s in here. Remember when she had that weird illness, and she was just lying here strangely. Like a mummy, she didn’t move or talk at all.” Mauricio tells her, “shh she’s coming.” Juana Calidad prays once more and turns to face her. Dona Dona enters and closes the door. “How are your parents Mauricio?” Mauricio tells her, “they are well Dona Dona thank you for asking.” Dona Dona ask, “and your sisters?” Juana Calidad tells her, “very healthy thank god.” Dona Dona tells them, “now then please sit down the two of you. Now what do you do in the house?” Juana Calidad asks, “I don’t understand the question?” Dona Dona asks, “apparently every one of you is in charge of something or no in that house?” Juana Calidad tells her, “I’m in charge of the money but do other things. Well to cook, wash dishes and clothes. Plus iron, and other household chores.” Dona Dona tells them, “well I asked you here too discuss you being together.” Mauricio asks, “us? What do you mean?” Dona Dona asks, “tell me about you two how are things going.” Mauricio tells her, “well yes very well right? I have planned on going to Bogota, to study a proper profession. You know that I like that career. But I don’t know if I should not go, and instead help out my father with his political campaign. Well then later at the governership.”

Dona Dona tells him, “alright but I wasn’t referring too that. How about you two as a couple?” Juana Calidad tells her, “we are formally dating Dona Dona.” Mauricio takes her hand and squeezes it. Juana Calidad pushes it away, and tells her. “Well we haven’t done anything, that we are ashamed of no sir.” Dona Dona smiles then ask, “I mean your plans are you serious? Will you be getting married.” Mauricio takes Juana Calidad’s hand once more. “Now I know Dona Dona, that you might not like this but. I really love Juana Calidad, with all of my heart.” Juana Calidad tells her, “well Mauricio is corresponded by me as well. The saints are witness to this, I’m saying the truth.” Mauricio tells her, “well what I want to do most of all. In this life is too marry her.” Juana Calidad smiles and Dona asks, “and you?” Juana Calidad tells her, “I don’t like to talk about these things in front of people.” Dona Dona tells her, “you can count on my discreation. Now then do you want to marry Mauricio Fuentelafria?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes senora.” Dona Dona ask, “well then have you decided on a date?” Mauricio tells her, “well no but I suppose its soon.” Dona Dona asks, “you suppose?” Mauricio tells her, “well when ever Juana Calidad wishes. You see I have already proposed properly. I’m just waiting for a response.” Juana Calidad tells her, “I said I was going to think about it.” Dona Dona ask, “so what have you decided?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes.” Mauricio asks, “well why didn’t you tell me anything?” Juana Calidad tells him, “I didn’t have the guts Mauricio.” Dona Dona tells them, “now then what did you think about?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes I want to marry Mauricio.” Mauricio smiles, “you do?” Dona Dona simply smiles and nods.

Over at the dolorosa, Poncho tries to talk to Octavio. “Listen I am repeating, we have been friends ever since we were kids. But you can’t ruin a good friendship, just because of three girls.” Octavio tells him, “hey when talking like that. Don’t you dare mention Juana Manny Poncho.” Octavio tells him, “hey they are treating my Juana Manny badly.” Poncho tells him, “even so does that mean your going to forget Miguel Tejeros and Mauricio Fuentelafria. Your friends your entire lives.” Octavio tells him, “they took and showed their gold. Poncho asks, “and you showing off pure gold.” Mauricio shows up, Poncho utters. “Hey there’s the other one to complicate things.” Mauricio sits down, “hey Poncho give me a really cold beer please. So Poncho how goes it around here?” Poncho tells him, “oh what a great question to ask.” Mauricio tells her, “apparently its quite empty in here. Better than, well its best that its very empty.” Octavio tells him, “you know something Poncho. Now that the elections are coming up. Its best that you, don’t allow any politicianas around here. You don’t want the place to lose your prestiage.” Mauricio tells him, “you know something Poncho. Soon the elections are going to come up. Your going to make a lot of money, because people with money will be coming by. Not carpenters, or people that paint houses who are always without a cent.” Octavio angrily gets up, “hey what do you have against the carpenter business?” Mauricio asks, “and you do you have something against politics so talk.” Octavio tells him, “don’t you dare touch me.” Mauricio tells him, “well don’t you touch me either.” Poncho gets inbetween, “hey enough already don’t start this again. Enough with this fighting.” Mauricio tells him, “hey you started it.”

The girls are sitting once more in the livingroom. Ruben and Calixto are there as well. Juana Valentina tells him, “you know I’ve never played soccer until now. All this exercise, I just feel ready you know prepared for anything.” Calixto tells her, “you might have never played before but. Apparently Ruben says, there are many conditions.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well for me Don Calixto the conditions aren’t very important. But the dedication, and hard work that one puts into what people do. Just like the concert, hey when have I ever got together a musical group. Never, not even doing the chorography but everything turned out great.” Juana Matilde tells her, “it turned out great because I sang girl.” Juana Calidad tells her, “no senora hey you can’t say that. Considering I also participated.” Ruben tells them, “enough stop talking about the concert its over.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes lets discuss the soccer game. I am telling you Don Calixto, I assure you I’m just saying. That game we’re going too win, because we’re going to win it. Yes for the kids, the sponser, hey and us as well. Your going too see.” Calixto tells her, “well yes the important part is your involved in something that is worthwhile. Then Ruben won’t be bothering me, regarding the ranch hands children’s education.” Ruben tells them, “yes were going to make a lot of money. But the important part is everyone plans as a team.” Calixto asks, “now on to other matters. Has the committee contacted you, in regards of the harvest pagent?” Juana Valentina tells him, “well not yet.” Calixto tells her, “well you have too be prepared.” Juana Bautista tells him, “father with that there’s a problem father. We all want to be queen.”

Juana Manny tells him, “yes and why does it have too be Juana Valentina? Is she more beautiful, or intelligent than the rest of us?” Calixto tells her, “oh it not like that at all. I love you all for being the same. All of you are beautiful and intelligent. Capable of doing so many things. But it was the mayor, who decided that Juana Valentina should be the queen. But if its another one, well that’s no problem with me. I love you all.” Juana Matilde tells him, “father definately I should be the queen. Its a simple reason, I’m more famous than the five of you.” Ruben angrily tells them, “enough already stop arguing.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey this is a problem between sisters. We’re going to fix this in private Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde tells her, “stop like that in front of people then.” Juana Valentina tells her, “shut up.” Calixto tells her, “ok enough with the arguing. I have come by to tell you all, that were in the middle of the harvest. Soon were going to get our first paycheque.” Juana Calidad tells her, “how delicious father. Oh thank you too saint astokio bendita, and the virgin moulata.” Ruben tells them, “now first what were going to pay. Is the bank, then the loan people.” Calixto tells them, “yes but after that on our second cheque. All of you won’t have to worry about a thing, all of you will get back everything that you lost.” Juana Manny picks up the tray and tells him, “yes and its about time.” Juana Valentina tells him, “we’re very happy that all your heart work. Your dedication, has at last resulted in this at last.” Juana Matilde tells her, “you mentioned us you do like including everyone do you. Why do you continue talking for us?” Juana Valentina tells her, “Juana Matilde if your not happy then say your not happy Don Calixto and that’s final.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey I told you already.” Calixto stops it, “enough.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes father that does make me happy.” Ruben tells her, “Juana Matilde that’s enough. Stop fighting even if your provoked.” Calixto tells them, “now then I’ll be sustaining all of you for the future. Everything that I told you, when you arrived in corozal. Its all ready, and each of you can dedicate yourself into doing what ever you want.” Juana Bautista excited asks, “so once again I’ll get back my studio? Juana Manny with her boxing coach. Juana Matilde her music teacher, Juana Calidad her economic store.” Calixto tells her, “yes and what ever Juana Valentina asks for.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well Juana Valentina can’t get what she wants. Plus like before, she wants nothing from you. Remember she’s an aries, so don’t you forget it.”

Calixto tells them, “so everyone think about what you want. What do you want to do in this life? I’m guessing you Juana Manny, after your experience in the ring. With that giant of a girl, won’t want to box ever again.” Juana Manny tells her, “no that is over even though sometimes I really do want to punch certain people.” Calixto gets up, “now then think about it then you can tell me. Now I just want to tell everyone, that being next too your father again. Well it won’t be very hard for any of you again. Think also about your futures, to those that are going to get married. I’m not going too oppose of any of the matches. I might have arrived late in your lives but. Here I am.” Juana Matilde utters, “yes that is true.” Calixto tells Ruben, “oh we better get going home. Or else Dona, will get angry were not on time for dinner.” Ruben utters, “yes for dinner.” Calixto utters, “think about your lives and your futures bye girls.” Juana Valentina looks at Ruben, “I need too talk to you.” Ruben asks, “yes why?” Juana Valentina tells him, “well Ruben I don’t know nothing. I have many doubts regards the soccer game Ruben. Nobody has told me nothing. You haven’t told me, who is giving us our uniforms? What color they are going too be? Who’s making sure the money and contract. Is going to go well, we don’t want another Robusta Coronado again.” Annoyed once more that they aren’t talking about their relationship. Ruben angrily tells her, “hey just ask todoelmundo. Ask him all those questions alright excuse me.”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona tells Ruben. “See they just love to show themselves off.” Ruben utters, “oh mother the harvest pagent was my idea not them.” Calixto tells her, “the idea of one of my daughters being a queen was the mayor.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes but you have all decided to go through what he wants.” Calixto asks, “Dona in regards to the talk. You had with Juana Calidad and Mauricio. How did that go?” Dona Dona tells him, “you don’t miss a step Mr. Salguero. It went fine.” Calixto asks, “so that means you talked what you wanted to talk?” Dona Dona utters, “yes that’s correct. Ruben ask the daughter of Margarita Cruz, to come with her boyfriend to see me tomorrow.” Ruben tells her, “the boyfriend’s name is Octavio Portoreal mother.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes I know that. Oh girl, bring me a mineral water to my room please excuse me.” Calixto utters, “sure go ahead. I had hoped, that Juana Calidad would at least tell me something. Ophelia picks up her plates. But she didn’t, so I had hoped that Dona might have let it slip. To discuss the encounter.” Ruben tells him, “when my mother wants she can be very mysterious. Old man did you see how my sisters were. I told you the fight with my sisters is serious.” Calixto tells him, “yes and I told you that’s normal between siblings. In any case, I am happy that your worrying about your sisters. Now all that’s left, is for your mother to be the same woman as before. Then our happiness will be complete.” Ruben utters, “yes old man that’s all that we need.”

Juana Calidad is brushing her hair, when Tere shows up. “Tere I really need too talk to someone. I’m glad that you came.” Tere combs her hair, “my dear your a very sweet girl. I don’t know what happened to you today. You became very nasty today, with your sisters it utterly shocked me. That has left me very worried.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen Tere I am not an idiot. That isn’t what I want too talk about. Tere I need to tell you, what occured today. I don’t know what too do. Or how are these things?” Tere asks, “what happened?” Juana Calidad tells her, “I think that Mauricio asked my hand in marriage today.” Tere asks, “what do you mean?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes it was in front of Dona Dona.” Tere asks, “just tell me.” Juana Calidad tells her, “well I knew sooner or later this was going to happen. But I imaged, that Mauricio’s parents would ask my father for my hand. Yes that is the idea I had, or understood. Anyway the conversation of today was. How can I put this, very compromising.”

Gualberto and Mauricio are at the dolorosa. “You mean you asked formally the nun’s hand in marriage? She said yes, hey why didn’t you tell me before.” Mauricio tells him, “well you don’t understand I asked Dona Dona for her hand.” Gualberto almost chokes and asks, “you asked Dona Dona to marry you?” Mauricio just laughs, “oh Gualberto oh the things you think about? No I asked Dona Dona, if I could marry Juana Calidad. Juana Calidad told her yes, its so strange even I got confused.” Gualberto tells him, “now then the main thing is your going to marry the nun right?” Mauricio tells him, “yes that’s right.” Gualberto tells him, “so you asked through Dona Dona if you could marry the nun. Well the thing is, now that she has told you yes. You have full approval of Dona Dona. Well everything is now ready.” Mauricio tells him, “well the thing is I don’t know even know what’s left is to ask for her hand. Because in the end Dona Dona, isn’t Juana Calidad’s mother.” Gualberto tells him, “yes that is true.” Mauricio tells him, “but I swear to you Gualberto. I don’t want that episode to repeat in my life. Dona Dona was very amicable, but can you image. Being locked up with her, talking about your dating situation. Plus talking about your future plans, oh man that is pretty hard.” Gualberto tells him, “I’m glad that I wasn’t in your shoes.” Mauricio asks, “now I’m going to ask you for a favour. Don’t tell nobody, what I told you ok. Well that they, my future brother in-laws that’s unfortunate. Yes unfortuanate, yes gets involved with my personal life of me and Juana Calidad.” Gualberto tells him, “hey relax Maudi you can count on my silence.” Mauricio tells him, “well then see you tomorrow. I have to get up early, to help with Juana Calidad’s training early in the morning. So I need to get some rest.”

The next morning, Maria Delia in her sport outfit and walking with Manuel Efe. “Oh tell me do you think, that Ruben will like my surprise.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well of course yes.” Maria Delia tells him, “well I hope so for I’ve never played this game before. I don’t even know, how to hit a ball but I will learn.” Manuel Efe tells her, “learning the game isn’t important but you spending time with your future in-law that is more important. Good morning everyone, let me all tell you something.” Maria Delia smiles and utters, “hello everyone.” Manuel Efe tells them, “Maria Delia got really interested in your charity job. So she arrived to surprise all of you.” Maria Delia sits on Ruben’s lap, “do you like my idea Rubensito?” Ruben tells her, “sure yes yes.” Maria Delia tells them, “were all going to be a great team?” Juana Valentina tells her, “we will see about that.” Ruben tells her, “I think you should ask todoelmundo since he’s the trainer. Aren’t the girls already complete?” Todoelmundo tells him, “oh man of course Maria Delia can join. We completely forgot, to add your future bride.” Juana Valentina tells her, “enough chatting lets start.” Todoelmundo tells them, “yes Juana Valentina has the idea lets start training.” Manuel Efe simply stares as Juana Valentina passes by. Juana Matilde tells him, “hey todoelmundo come over here. Tell me, why does she have every reason. Hey don’t act strange, if in the end Juana Valentina becomes the star of the soccer game. Be careful she might end up the trainer sonny. I’m just warning you that’s all, save your position my life.” Todoelmundo yells out, “ok everyone 1,2,3, 4, 5, 6.” Manuel Efe tells Ruben, “let me tell you Ruben. Juana Valentina wearing that stretch outfit wow. You really do see, daaa. Well you also see, daaa. I know that she’s your sister but. You can’t deny she looks quite sexy.” Todoelmundo tells him, “hey Ruben listen this is our second day of training. We still haven’t managed to do nothing.” Ruben tells him, “they haven’t used stragedies and tactics of a team.” Manuel Efe asks, “what haven’t you managed to do of what?” Todoelmundo tells him, “I mean advancement of the sport material.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey I can help you I took a course with Franklin and Bauer. That’s the truth, you know that my father got me involved with everything.”

(Franklin and Bauer, deal with sporting equipment.)

Over at the house, Ophelia gives Dona Dona and the judge coffee. Calixto shows up, “hey I can smell that delicious aroma coffee all over the house. Thank you Ophelia.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “hi comparde.” Calixto utters, “yes hello comparde. So how are the wedding preparations comparde?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well not so good for Margarita for she has been busy. With the final arrangement of the harvest festival. So she hasn’t been able to dedicate herself in the wedding preparations.” Dona Dona tells him, “one needs a lot of time. Just look at me, I’ve been spending practically one year. Dedicating myself to Ruben Calixto’s and Maria Delia’s wedding. Yes its true, we have a few unfortunate set backs. In a couple of months, that wedding is over. Then I can finally get some rest.” Calixto tells him, “well it seems the harvest festival will the best party of the year. Isn’t that right comparde?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “yes of course comparde. Were smelling like roses now, considering the plague that hit us comparde. Its like a resurrection.” Dona Dona tells them, “I’m guessing the iligitimate girls must be overjoyed. The parties and the dancing is what they most like.” Calixto tells her, “Dona forgive me but your exaggerating again. Girls of that age, like to enjoy themselves. But yes they do worry about everyone else. In fact they are now worried, over those kids that couldn’t go too school. Considering the tragedy.” Dona Dona ask, “help out how?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “they are going to play a game of soccer. They are being sponsered by a group. With that money, the kids will be able to continue their studies.” Dona Dona asks, “what type of job is that a soccer game? Oh yes more of a mess, that facinates them.” Calixto tells her, “no Dona its not what you think they must train everyday. Its a tough physical job, its an admirable job.” Dona Dona tells them, “umda now the iligitimates are the defender of children’s of corozal. Its all that we needed.”

(Soccer originated they say, in China, Greece, and Rome. Then went around the world, in the latin american countries.)

Over at the game, the guys show up but cause more problems. Miguel yells out, “your doing great Juana Matilde.” Octavio yells out, “your great firecracker.” Miguel yells out, “hey only you can do this.” Octavio yells out, “yeah your doing a great job that’s it. Oh yes your a great athlete.” Octavio points to his watch, and Juana Manny cross the area. Which annoys Juana Valentina, “hey please don’t interupt the game Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells her, “hey stop being a meddler.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen seriously you have to at least finish this exercise. Get back in here.” Juana Manny tells her, “no listen Todoelmundo we need to talk. Listen scary frog and I, have a meeting with Dona Dona. We have to go now.” Todoelmundo asks, “can’t you go later?” Octavio tells him, “no no hey the meeting is with Dona Dona. You can’t go late too that.” Todoelmundo tells him, “well if that’s the case and go then.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen if Dona Dona meddles with me I will respond.” Todoelmundo tells him, “hey tell her oh dear. Now everyone back too work.” Octavio tells her, “firecracker don’t fight with Dona Dona.” Juana Valentina yells out, “Juana Manny get back here. Listen everyone stop it, if anybody has to leave early warn us in anticipation. Is everyone hearing me?” They utter, “yes.” Miguel yells out, “Juana Matilde is the best out of everyone.” Juana Matilde yells out, “yes my life I already know that.” Gualberto utters, “hi Octavio.” Octavio yells out, “oh man its a good thing were leaving the air is starting to get heavy.” Mauricio tells Todoelmundo, “here you go.” Todoelmundo tells him, “thank you for the balls Mauricio.” Mauricio tells him, “hey no problem. Its the courtesy of my father’s campaign.” Todoelmundo asks, “hey about about getting our uniforms. Out of the curtesy of your father?” Mauricio tells him, “hey you should be happy with the balls.” Todoelmundo uttes, “thank you.” Mauricio sees Miguel, “you know what Gualberto lets leave for the air her is getting bad.” Miguel utters, “that guy doesn’t know anything about sports. Hey Juana Matilde, you have a lot of grace.” Orlando shows up and says hello to Gualberto. Then hello to Juana Bautista, she runs into his arms. Juana Calidad runs towards Mauricio. Juana Valentina yells out, “Juana Bautista Juana Caliad where are you going? Oh what a bad example, you two are making.”

Juana Bautista asks, “so how did it go in Bogota?” Orlando tells her, “very good my love. I returned, and went to the house. Then over to the dolorosa, Poncho told me about the soccer game. Oh that’s a great idea.” Juana Bautista ask, “do you like it?” Orlando tells her, “yes its just incredible.” Juana Valentina yells out, “enough Juana Bautista.” Juana Bautista tells him, “you know when she starts up that way. All I want to do is leave to Bogota with you. Come on lets leave here.” Miguel yells out, “hey your the greatest Juana Matilde.” Juana Matilde stops playing, “I’m bored now come on Miguel lets go and you can buy me a rum.” Juana Valentina yells out, “Juana Matilde get back here.” Juana Matilde yells out, “what you have is a lot of jealous. Here take this.” She throws the water bottle at her. Juana Valentina tells her, “oh that is just aggression. I’m just so bored of this, there’s just no respect anymore. Oh how embarssing to the rest of the team.” Maria Delia tells her, “oh Juana Valentina calm down its just so unjust. You worrying over your training, and your sisters. None of them, are really listing too you girl. Well I heard commentary from the boys. They’re just jealous, because your going to be the queen of the harvest.” Juana Valentina ask, “seriously?”

Ruben is trying too work, but gets another visit from Manuel Efe. “It seems that you’ve gotten, into a habit of visiting me lately.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes because we should bound once more in the ties of our friendship.” Ruben simply shakes his hand, “ok here you go.” Manuel Efe asks, “Rubencho ok but I guess you have a lot of work too do.” Manuel Efe asks, “I guess that this years harvest was pretty good. Well good was it anyways?” Ruben tells him, “for your information its the best harvest we’ve had in over 10 years.” Manuel Efe tells him, “oh yes very good daa very good. But I mean your not going to have nothing else. You know because, of all the debts and loans that you asked.” Ruben tells him, “we have enough to pay each and every one including yours. Plus we will get something at least.” Manuel Efe asks, “is it enough?” Ruben tells him, “sufficiant enough it seems your not happy with that news.” Manuel Efe tells him, “Rubencho you can’t image, of course I do I am very happy yes very good.” When he doesn’t leave, Ruben gets annoyed. “Hey don’t you have something better too do. Instead of watching me here.” Manuel Efe asks, “am I making you uncomfortable?” Ruben tells him, “yes your making me very uncomfortable. All your doing is staring at me all this time.” Manuel Efe tells him, “I just pity you, I just hate too see that your working oh so very hard. You have so many worries, the debts the payments. Your future plans, everything. Hey if you want, I’ll help out with the soccer game. It probably takes too much of your time.” Ruben tells him, “truthfully not that much.” Manuel Efe tells him, “so the opposite team that they are competiting against. I guess its women from sincelejo?” Ruben tells him, “yes.” Manuel Efe asks, “and how did you manage to get a team here? Who which people did you talk too?” Ruben tells him, “hey Manuel Efe this seems like an interogation. You want to know everythiing regarding that soccer game. Alright I will tell you.”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona is now with Juana Manny and Octavio. “So tell me are you planning on marrying. Since every young couple thinks about this. But what I want too know is this, if you have made concrete plans?” Juana Manny asks, “why do you want too know?” Octavio taps her leg, “no Dona Dona nothing has been planned yet.” Dona Dona tells them, “well now is the time to organize.” Juana Manny tells her, “what does it look like were old or something?” Octavio tells her, “listen Juana Manny Dona Dona is only saying this for our own good. Yes Dona Dona, we have plans on getting married. I am waiting on a loan, to build up my own business. To financially support my Juana Manny. Plus the family were thinking of having.” Dona Dona ask, “so that means you have decided to stay and live in Corozal.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes with Judge Geremias Guerra and my mother. If you don’t like it, then its worse for you.” Dona Dona tells her, “it seems you don’t like me Juana Manny. Well in what you two decide, it doesn’t worry me.” Juana Manny asks, “and why are you asking so very much?” Octavio tries hard to control Juana Manny. He tells her, “Dona Dona Juana Manny also wants to marry me. Dona Margarita understands, and accepts our decision to marry. Even though, we haven’t formally discuss the matter together.” Dona Dona asks, “and you want do you plan on doing? Are you going to continue with the boxing?” Juana Manny tells her, “no I was taught by punches that I had to change my profession. I’ll do what I did in sahagun, I’ll open up my own beauty salon.” Dona Dona simply smiles and nods.

Back at the office, Manuel Efe asks. “Santiago, is that the same kid that used to play baseball with us. When we were kids?” Ruben tells him, “yes the son of Alonso.” Manuel Efe tells him, “daaa oh yes that guy knows a lot about sports. An afficonado, an addict for sports.” Ruben tells him, “listen I have already told you everything. Please Manuel Efe I really have too finish this alright.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes right I’m going now.” Juana Valentina shows up, “hello.” Manuel Efe tells her, “your look so beautiful Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes thank you. Hope once again fills Ruben’s eyes. It fades when she begins talking about soccer. “Ruben its just absurd that were practicing soccer in our tennis shoes. I need to know where, are we going to get our cleats so we can play. Where are the uniforms, plus the stockings. No we simply can’t play like this. If we need to get these things, well it doesn’t matter. I’ll get it like that, in one minute. I demand and exceed that, I be made aware of such matters. This is just unbelieveable.” Manuel Efe just smells her hair. Ruben tells her, “I already told you you have to talk to Todoelmundo about this.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well Todoelmundo just told me he knows only what he knows. So that means, he doesn’t know nothing.” Ruben tells her, “I have already spoken to our sponsers that are interesting in our team. They are going to pay for the education of the children. When they give me the money, you will get that money and buy what ever you want. For now at least have some patience.” Manuel Efe tells her, “excuse me for meddling. Oh yes I think, just this time Juana Valentina has ever reason. What happens if she hurts, say her ankle, her knees, or her legs. Daaa yes, she has too train with whatever is available. She must train, with whatever equipment she needs yes sir.” Juana Valentina smiles and tells him, “oh your so beautiful Manuel Efe. So very generous, where are your keys?” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey you haven’t quite understood what I’ve been saying.” Juana Valentina tells him, “ok you buy mine and Terezalsura’s outift. Oh and those of my sisters, hey that’s enough. Ok either I drive or you.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey its my car and I’ll drive.” Juana Valentina tells him, “ok bye.” Manuel Efe utters, “Juana Valentina let me at least go to the bathroom?” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh come on Manuel Efe.” He then utters, “daaa.” As he drags towards his car. Ruben simply catches his breath.

Over at the pink house, Todoelmundo is putting salt on Terezalsura’s swollen feet. “Oh my feet really hurt.” Todoelmundo tells her, “coming from a dancer like yourself. Hey that really strange of you Terezalsura.” Tere tells him, “well your training methods are particularly difficult Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells her, “the thing is I want too win. Yes and also try, to end the conflict with the juanas of course.” Tere tells him, “but in the end your going to be the one tired. Of trying to get them to do something.” Todoelmundo asks, “hey did you know the lady Margarita Cruz and Judge Geremias Guerra are planning to get married?” Tere utters, “no?” Todoelmundo tells her, “yes now the date isn’t set but it will be soon.” Tere asks, “but didn’t he say he was in love with…” Todoelmundo asks, “who?” Tere tells him, “oh I mean her yes now I remember.” Todoelmundo tells her, “hey put more salt even though it does have a lot.”

Juana Calidad arrives and tells Tere, “Tere were now going to talk to the man that’s going to make my float.” Tere tells her, “ok dear.” Mauricio tells her, “yes its a man that works for my father’s campaign.” Juana Calidad tells her, “well then ave purisima.” They utter, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Calidad asks, “oh Mauricio I haven’t thought about this. But there won’t be a swim suit contest? Well I hope the lord no, but I’m just telling you. I’m just saying, if I have too do this I will.” Mauricio tells her, “if you have to do it then your going to have too do it. Bye Tere Todoelmundo.” Todoelmundo tells Tere, “from a convent to a beauty pagent. To pass by as a chorus in a concert. Oh this girl, has had to make pretty long and hard steps.” Tere tells him, “oh yes sonny that is exactly what I was going too say. Your starting to read my mind.”

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona tells Calixto. “Next up is the witch and her boyfriend.” Calixto tells her, “well its Juana Bautista and the boy is Orlando.” Dona Dona tells him, “then it will be the singer and Tejeros.” Calixto tells him, “Juana Matilde isn’t a showgirl. She’s just a singer, hey come over here. So what do you talk to them about? What questions do you ask them? Satisfy my curiosity, the curiousity killed cats Mr. Salguero. Lastly I want to talk to the oldest.” Calixto asks, “Juana Valentina? But she doesn’t even have a boyfriend.” Dona Dona tells him, “she should already have one. Hopefully someone, will take her very far from here.” Calixto asks, “so that is what you talk to them about?” Dona Dona tells him, “what I have to tell them Mr. Salguero is none of your business. If I talk to one, I will talk to each of them. The last one, I want to talk to is the oldest. The one that didn’t want to accept your last name. Juana Valentina Echinque.” Calixto looks at her with great concern.

Juana Valentina arrives home, “where is everyone? Juana Manny, Juana Matilde, Juana Calidad Terezalsura. Everyone come down please.” Manuel Efe utters, “hey I’ll put this right here excuse me.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well thank you once again Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey its no problem daaa.” Juana Valentina tells them, “now then everyone try these on. These are gifts from Manuel Efe.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh yes thank you very much. May god pay you back.” Manuel Efe tells her, “you all know for me its a pleasure.” Tere tells him, “hey Manuel Efe we really do appreciate this man. This is going to be, of great use for us thank you.” Juana Valentina looks at the three, “well then say thank you already.” Juana Manny tells her, “hey don’t you understand Spanish Juana Valentina. In what language can we say, stop being so bossy.” Juana Valentina tells them, “your acting all rude to Manuel Efe.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey don’t mess with my uncle. Yes my uncle almost killed himself. For me too be a very educated person. Manuel Efe grins at seeing them bickering. Hey its a form of disrespect, in what your telling me. I’m not un-educated person. Hey you owe me an apology.” Juana Valentina gives her a box, “Juana Matilde here take it measure it.” Juana Matilde angrily asks, “hey and where is my apology?” Juana Valentina gives her a dirty look, that she moves away. Juana Manny asks, “and who chose all this?” Manuel Efe tells them, “well we both choose the colors. Well yes I know a lot about fashion, clothes from Milan Paris London. Clothes from the runway, but I don’t know nothing about sports gear.” Juana Calidad once again tells him, “thank you so very much Manuel Efe. Juana Manny, you really should say thank you.” Juana Manny tells her, “hey you again being bossy like Juana Valentina. Hopefully there won’t be a society full of bossy people.” Juana Calidad tells her, “its for decency girl. Manuel Efe has always been attentive to all of our things. Yes it must be accepted, oh dear lord your so very selfish. You don’t notice, what everyone does for you.”

Juana Manny asks, “what is that what your thinking? I’m shameless, hey and where did you think. You got the clothes, that you wore when you went to meet up. At that fancy dinner, with Mauricio’s family? Hey where did it come from?” Juana Calidad tells her, “your shoving those things in my face.” Juana Bautista tells her, “that’s enough Juana Manny.” Juana Manny yells out, “no my mother didn’t raise me like that. That’s sufficiant enough.” Juana Bautista yells out, “enough Juana Manny if you want go and take a cold shower to calm you down.” Juana Manny tells her, “listen Juana Calidad the one that’s ungrateful is you. Listen to let you know, so you will never forget. I had to sell my boxing gloves to give you what you have.” Juana Matilde yells out, “yes and I gave away my guitar. I haven’t been able to get it back. It was all your fault.” Juana Valentina tells her, “please that’s enough.” Juana Manny tells her, “no but its the truth. She pawned her guitar, that girl pawned a beautiful hand crafted box that she had. So we could give them too you. Yes tell me right now, who is the selfish one who is the egotistical one. Yes who is the ungrateful one, just tell me.” Tere goes and gives her comfort. Crying Juana Calidad, tells them. “I never asked for nothing. I never knew you had pawn those things.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen your an idiot Juana Manny you had no right to open you mouth.” Juana Manny tells her, “this is what’s going on with all of you. You think I’m an idiot, hey girl I am not an idiot.” She gathers her things and heads up to her bedroom. Juana Valentina tells Manuel Efe, “I’m very sorry you had to witness this.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey I haven’t seen or heard nothing.” Juana Valentina tells them, “now then everyone try them on so I can know. If they have to be returned.” Juana Calidad crying utters, “I’ll see mine later.” Juana Bautista tells her, “thank you Manuel Efe but its best that you leave.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes its best that you leave.” Manuel Efe tells them, “yes its best that I do leave.” He kisses Juana Valentina’s hand, then grins and takes off.

Tere sits down, everyone is now gone. Juana Valentina asks, “now your going to say that this is also my fault?” Tere tells her, “you know I don’t know who started it but I am terroized. All those terrible things, that you all said too one another. Dear lord in my head, its just a mess. Yes you lot, are going to drive me crazy. Going to drive me crazy.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey listen nothing is like it was Tere.” Tere asks, “but dear something has to be done. We must do something in this regards.” Juana Valentina angrily tells her, “I can’t do nothing. Are you going to marry Todoelmundo?” Tere asks, “and why are you asking me that now?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I just know that your fine and that you probably discussed marriage. If you’re going to get married, your going to live here in Corozal.” Tere tells her, “my love lets not discuss this now. What must be fixed is this trouble with your sisters.” Juana Valentina tells her, “problems no they are going to get married. With their boyfriend, for I am sure about that. If they don’t marry, I really can’t count on them. Your going to stay here in Corozal, with Todoelmundo. While Ruben, hey lets not even mention his name.” Tere tells her, “listen I will go where ever you go Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina ask, “and Todoelmundo? Oh Tere, I won’t permit you to let go of your love just like that. Yes I’ll wake up every morning relaxed, knowing you made a huge sacrifice for me. Juana Valentina gives her a big hug. Oh Tere I do love you so very much. I just hope I go to bed, and I’m able to sleep. Its just, I’ve been thinking and thinking. I just can’t close my eyes.” Tere tells her, “when you were little you used to be scared of monsters. I would tell you, now you go to bed. For tomorrow the sun will rise.” Juana Valentina ask, “why is it when your younger the monsters come out at night.” Tere tells her, “I’m telling you again my love. Go to bed, for tomorrow things will get better.” Juana Valentina tells her, “if only I could believe you Tere. I just can’t, see you tomorrow then.” Tere uttes, “yes see you tomorrow my love and get some rest.”

The next morning, Manuel Efe goes to visit Yolanda Del Cabrales. She enters and takes off her hat. “Oh Manuel Efe when they told me you were here. I thought it was a big mistake.” Manuel Efe asks, “hey what’s wrong with you why are you like this?” Yolanda tells him, “excuse me but today isn’t my day. Forgive me, its not a day for a visit.” Manuel Efe tells her, “listen this is a social visit. I’ve come here, to tell you something that might interest you. This is another hit to the juanas.” Yolanda tells him, “again with the juanas. Care for a whiskey?” Manuel Efe tells her, “no its too early Jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “yes its strange but I really do need it. Today just isn’t my day.” Manuel Efe asks, “what’s going on?” Yolanda tells him, “listen your not going to believe what’s going on. The cows have stopped producing milk. Listen no milk, just water.” Manuel Efe tells her, “what a wickly sense of humor. Its quite fine, almost british dry wit. Very good very good.” Yolanda crying tells him, “listen its not a joke its the truth.” Manuel Efe tells her, “but jolly that can’t be happening. Everyone knows cows make milk not water.” Yolanda tells him, “yes that’s true but this morning the workers called me. They told me, that all the cows were giving me water. I went and saw it, just water.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh please I can’t even believe this jolly. Now calm down, tell me exactly what’s going on.” Yolanda tells him, “oh dear lord I saw it all my cows are going to die Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh jolly these things only happen in the tropics jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “see that is why I need another drink.” Manuel Efe tells her, “if I were in your shoes I would do the exact thing. Now sit down and relax, just listen too my plan.” She glances at her cow sculpture, and begins to cry once more.

Over at the dolorosa, Ponch is opening up for the day. Octavio is his first customer. “Apparently what Dona Dona wanted, was to ask me if I had serious plans with Juana Manny.” Poncho asks, “wait what does she have to do with anything. Does Dona detests the juanas?” Octavio tells him, “listen I just felt. I was asking for Juana Manny’s hand from Dona Dona.” Poncho utters, “from Dona Dona.” Octavio tells him, “well that is what I felt like.” Poncho tells him, “I almost don’t believe you. Well if it continues this way, your going to have to ask for her hand. Many times in fact.” Octavio tells him, “oh yes it felt like I was in the accused chair.” Poncho tells him, “oh yes yes that must have been just terrible. Well just think about this, first your going to have to ask. Dona Margarita, her future husband Judge Geremias Guerra, Don Calixto. Three more people to go.” Octavio tells him, “hey I’m glad that Juana Manny. Only has two hands, can you image if she had more. Well I’m going to the training Poncho, to see Juana Manny see you later.” Poncho tells him, “sure see you later.”

Over at the salguero house, Ruben tells Dona Dona. “Now tell me, how did it go with Octavio and Juana Manny.” Dona Dona tells him, “very good. They were very punctual.” Ruben ask, “yes and what did you talk about?” Dona Dona tells him, “it was a conversation between them and me nobody else.” Ruben asks, “but please understand I’m very curious. Or is everything a secret?” Dona Dona chuckels, “no I wouldn’t call it that.” Ruben asks again, “so what did you talk about? Just talk to me about the topic in general. Without giving me any more details.” Dona Dona tells him, “just like I told Mr. Salguero. Having curiosity isn’t always good son. It can put people in some serious troubles. Now the next turn is the witch and her boyfriend.” Ruben tells her, “Juana Bautista and Orlando. I think they are at the training session. I’ll inform them, but now I’m heading to the office.” Dona Dona tells him, “son you at least go over to see Maria Delia. I get the impression that your abandoning her.” Ruben tells her, “mother she’s also participating in the soccer game.” Dona Dona ask, “Maria Delia is also involved in the game of soccer?” Ruben tells her, “yes and if you want. I could tell her to quit, if you wanted me too?” Dona Dona tells him, “no no its very good. Well who else is involved in this, apart from your step-sisters?” Ruben tells her, “you already know Terezalsura and Todoelmundo. He’s their trainer.” Dona Dona ask, “and how long do they train for?” Ruben tells her, “Todoelmundo doesn’t release them till 10 am at least. Now bye mother.” Dona Dona then simply smiles.

Over at the soccer practice, Juana Valentina makes a goal but doesn’t asks anybody for any help. Todoelmundo yells out, “hey thats a goal I saw it. Everyone here together.” Juana Bautista looks at Juana Manny, “hey I was open and could have made a goal Juana Manny.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh girl if I didn’t do it you couldn’t.” Todoelmundo yells out, “thats enough this isn’t golf its soccer. Soccer is a team sport, its not one player playing. One uses a stragedy, and using tactics and plays. Listen with one look, one can be victorious. A goal a goal it doesn’t matter, who does it but who in the end gets help by their teammate. This is a team sport, now then that’s enough for today.” They utter, “thank you.” Juana Valentina looks at Juana Manny and tells her. “Hey Juana Manny, you shouldn’t be so selfish.” Juana Manny yells out, “its best that I shut up.” Maria Delia tells her, “oh Juana Manny don’t feel bad don’t be like this. When one isn’t well, it just scares one.” Juana Manny tells her, “I did think but listen if I had given the ball to Juana Bautista. She wouldn’t have made the goal either.” Maria Delia tells her, “hey you know something. What’s bad is everyone of you, force yourself to do a great job. One is more appreciated than the other. All of you put your heart into, what you are doing. Apparently Don Calixto, just doesn’t notice that.” Juana Manny asks, “what do you mean? What does my father have to do with all of this?” Maria Delia tells her, “well what’s going on is Don Calixto well you know the inheritance.” Juana Manny asks, “what’s going on with the inheritance?” Maria Delia tells her, “well Don Calixto is thinking that Juana Valentina being the oldest. Will get most of the inhertiance, than any of you and my Rubensito. You know because she’s the oldest. I am very bored, a bit bothered by all of this. Its just a bit bothers me really.” Juana Manny is livid, “oh yeah so that is how things will be? Hey that sucks, listen why more her than the rest of us.” Maria Delia tells her, “I don’t know listen I’m just making a commentary.” Juana Manny utters, “man what exactly that idiot Juana Valentina do. To get the best part of the pie.” Maria Delia tells her, “yes girl of course its not fair. Its just unjust, even for my Rubensito. Its terrible but, you shouldn’t act this way.” Juana Manny yells out, “don’t be upset then why are you telling me this for. For me to laugh it up daaa.”

Over in sincelejo, Yolanda is drunk. “You know I thought, I wouldn’t have to ever deal with the salguero’s never ever. You talk now about the juanas, I get a crazy feeling in my body.” Manuel Efe tells her, “listen jolly this time you won’t lose money. Or in fact nothing, its just to give them a bit of trouble or make them feel uncomfortable.” Yolanda tells him, “yes that is true.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes and if your not going to do this project with me. You don’t have to worry about it. It will be no problem.” Yolanda tells him, “hey one minute oh no you think. That I’m not going to enjoy the look upon their faces.” Manuel Efe asks, “well then will you do it yes or no?” Yolanda tells him, “look come over here I am just saying too myself. You have to let this go, put this in your past forget all about the salguero’s and get on with your life. No more, but I’m not going to let this pleasure pass me by. Why why?” Manuel Efe asks, “then what are you trying to tell me? Yes or no.” Yolanda tells him, “yes and what do you think?” Now how about you, and have another whiskey with me my life?” Manuel Efe tells him, “jolly its a bit early for me. Don’t worry drink drink, for I’m here.”

Over at the pink house, the girls arrive home. “Hey oh man I’m tired, anybody want some juice.” They utter, “I do.” Juana Matilde utter, “I’ll come down later for that juice.” Tere utters, “oh man give me patience lord. To deal with these girls.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no Tere you sit down I’ll prepare the juice.” Tere tells her, “oh thank you oh these training method is exhausting. But were going to lose a few pounds girls.” Then they hear Juana Calidad screaming, “help help.” Juana Valentina tells Tere, “go get water. Juana Calidad what’s wrong.” The girls come down, “what’s going on?” Juana Valentina tells them, “I’m trying to find out. Now Juana Calidad what’s wrong?” Juana Calidad tells them, “ghosts.” They utter, “ghost?” Juana Bautista tells her, “now Juana Calidad please calm down. Breathe in and out.” Juana Manny asks, “hey girl Juana Calidad what’s going on?” Juana Calidad tells them, “no like I said we have ghosts.”

Juana Valentina asks, “what did you see? Explain it well.” Juana Calidad simply points, Juana Matilde utters. “Hey I don’t understand a thing. Is the ghost in the drawer?” Juana Calidad tells her, “no but it wasn’t like that.” Juana Valentina asks, “what wasn’t like this?” Tere enters, “here have some water.”Juana Calidad tells her, “this I left this close before I left. The box with the money, I left back here. All the books are disorganized.” Juana Bautitsta asks, “so now you found it like this?” Juana Calidad utters, “oh sor juana inez de la cruz and saint astokio bendita. Saint antonia maria clarice protect us. Please protect us.” Juana Matilde tells her, “enough Juana Calidad get up. You know what girl, that I’m thinking. Your creating a big scandal for no reason.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no scandal now Juana Calidad. Are you for certain, that you left everything perfectly closed and shut?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes the lord is witnessed to me saying the truth.” In the end Tere drinks the water. One of them utter, “robbers?” Juana Valentina yells out, “everyone go and check your rooms.” Juana Matilde tells her, “Juana Valentina its just that she’s messy and disorganized.” Juana Calidad yells out, “we must pray.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no praying just count the money. You count I will write it down.”

Over at the office, Ruben tells Calixto. “I couldn’t get a single word out of her old man. She told me, she wants to talk to Juana Bautista next with Orlando.” Calixto tells him, “yes next is Juana Matilde and Miguel Tejeros then it will Juana Valentina. I already know that.” Ruben asks, “what do you mean Juana Valentina?” Calixto tells him, “just like you she didn’t give me a single detail.” Ruben tells him, “yes but its still pretty strange. That she would like to talk to Juana Valentina.” Calixto tells him, “well considering she wants to talk to everyone. This has to be about, the contract that we made. If one Juana isn’t married, or at least engaged by the time the harvest was ready. They would have to leave Corozal.” Ruben asks, “so you two talked about the topic. You two agreed on her proposal.” Calixto tells him, “no not like that but I’m just hoping that she doesn’t remember.” Ruben tells him, “if mother wants them to leave the house. Then why does she have to, talk to them and their boyfriends.” Calixto tells him, “your mother is a marvelous woman but. When she wants to be twisted, is like those serum tubes. Listen Ruben, you haven’t noticed something. Juana Valentina has no boyfriend. Well I can’t go back on your mother’s words.” Ruben tells him, “then Juana Valentina would have to leave corozal.” Calixto tells him, “she can chose wherever she wants to live. I’ll send her there, yes she would have to leave corozal.” Juanita interrups, “Juana Calidad is on the phone.” Ruben gets it, “hello Juana Calidad calm down what’s going on? Ghosts? Look don’t worry, is anything missing. Oh please calm down, there must be an explination. Yes yes, I am going over there. Don’t you worry, yes pray pray pray. Bye Juana Calidad, don’t you worry.” Calixto asks, “what’s going on?” Ruben tells him, “I have to go to the pink house. Juana Calidad told me, there’s ghosts over there.” Calixto tells him, “ghosts all the time that we’ve been there. We would have found out already. Hey maybe some robbers shows up?” Ruben tells him, “no everything is there and the money is intact.”

Over at the pink house, Margarita Cruz smiles at seeing them arguing. Juana Calidad once again yells out. “No its a ghost.” Juana Manny gives her juice, “no forget the ghosts and pay attention to my mother.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh do forgive us Dona Margarita.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “hey don’t you worry. This occured to me before. In the end I found out, that the ghost had four legs and teeth. It was my next door neighbors dog.” Tere uttes, “really what a great story.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “now then I have come here, to inform you from the mayor.” Juana Valentina all excitedly utters, “sure what do I do?” Juana Bautista tells her, “Dona Margarita is talking in plural. Please continue.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “those wishing to participate for the harvest queen. Has to report too him, over at the mayor’s office tomorrow morning.” Juana Manny asks, “mother did he talk specifically about me?” Margarita Cruz tells her, “no daughter he just mentioned generally and didn’t give me proper names.” Juana Matilde tells her, “please inform the mayor. That I will wake up early, and go talk to him.” Juana Calidad tells her, “no I’ll be going tomorrow morning.” Juana Valentina tells them, “enough one minute we will discuss this among us privately please.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “now then I really must go. For I have other visits, to make so excuse me.” Tere gets up, “oh Dona Margarita I just found out that your getting married. I would like to make you your wedding cake, it will be very delicious. I’m at your order.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “oh thank you Terezalsura. I’m guessing Manny has already informed you. That soon I will be marrying Judge Geremias Guerra. So he will be her step-father.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh from all of us congratulations from all of my heart.” Juana Matilde utters, “hey don’t you dare say congratulations from me. Hey from my part on my own, congratulations a really big one.” Juana Bautista tells her, “hey I was going to say the same thing.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “now girls then I’m going to leave you all alone now. Now my love, you take care and thank you for everything.” Juana Calidad utters, “ave purisima.” Juana Matilde utters, “be well.”

Juana Valentina tells them, “listen I’m going to tell you something. One little thing, nothing else. You lot have to learn, to deal with your personal problems in private. Never in front of anybody do you hear me.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen I’m just saying what I’m thinking. Tomorrow morning, I’m going to be at that mayors office.” Juana Manny asks, “and who told you. You were going be the harvest queen?” Ruben shows up, “hello beautiful sisters.” Juana Calidad gives Ruben a big hug, “thank god that you came by Ruben.” Ruben tells her, “now then calm down tell me what happened?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes I already told you over the phone.” Ruben ask, “is there a logical explination to everything?” Juana Manny tells him, “of course there’s a logical explinations. What’s wrong is she left everything, the way it is. She just loves to have all the attention too herself. Building problems, when there isn’t any.” Juana Calidad tells him, “listen Ruben I can’t swear too you because swearing is a sin. I promise you, I really do promise you that I’m telling you the truth. Even though this lot don’t believe me.” Ruben tells her, “I understand full well. Its terrible when all the proof is against you. Especially when you know full well, that your telling the truth.” Juana Calidad tells him, “ok here come with me so you can see with your own two eyes excuse me.” Ruben utters, “alright.” Juana Valentina tells them, “its now time to discuss the crowning.” Juana Bautista tells her, “hey there’s nothing too discuss.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes that’s exactly what I was going too say excuse me.” Tere utters, “oh dear lord what I should do. Is hit you one by one, it will be a clean fight. Oh these difficult girls.”

Over in sincelejo, Yolanda is on the phone nursing her hangover. Manuel Efe is still there waiting for word. Yolanda is on the phone, “oh yes I know the place. Oh yes you all know, that I am always there when its for a good cause my life. Well thank you once again bye. Oh dear lord, everything is ready.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes it will be quite spectacular to witness this.” Yolanda tells him, “listen Manuel Efe what are you going to get out of all of this?” Manuel Efe tells her, “to enjoy a sweet vengence.” Yolanda tells him, “those girls playing soccer won’t be leaving corozal. Isn’t that what you want?” Manuel Efe tells her, “on that regard I’m working it at another angle.” Yolanda tells him, “oh my life you’ve become quite mysterious. Oh man now I have the hicupps, now I’m really screwed. Great I’m with nauseous, with a headache now I have hiccups.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey what’s best is a glass of water.” Yolanda utters, “quietly so it doesn’t make a noise.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Bautista is reading her cards. “The past is love, the present they’re the problems, the future is a the devil. Why does he have too keep on showing up. Ruben’s at the door, come on in. How’s it going with Juana Calidad?” Ruben tells her, “I just think its pretty strange what’s going on?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’m going to tell you what I’m thinking. Juana Calidad left in a hurry, and didn’t realize she was leaving everything like she did.” Ruben tells her, “but she says no and I really do believe it.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh Ruben don’t tell me that you think its ghosts as well like she’s saying.” Ruben tells her, “no I really do think someone’s messing around with her things.” Juana Bautisa tells him, “listen man we’re all training. The house was empty, Juana Calidad made a mistake believe me. Just believe me.” Ruben tells her, “my mother wants to talk to you and Orlando.” Juana Bautisa ask, “don’t you worry Orlando has returned from Bogota.” Ruben asks, “so you are going to get married? Well that the harvest, is being picked up. Well I just thought, one of you would be giving us the news.”

Dona Dona finishes setting the table. “Do you know by chance where is Ruben Calixto. Its time to have dinner?” Calixto tells her, “he’s over at the pink house. He won’t be long.” Dona Dona utters, “oh my pink house in what hands my house passed by. Plus who ended up with it.” Calixto tells him, “hey dear come over here talking about the house. Do you recall if anybody, mentioned there were ghosts?” Dona Dona ask, “ghosts in the pink house?” Calixto tells her, “yes my daughters have mentioned. That they returned, finding things in a different location. Well I don’t know.” Dona Dona tries hard not to laugh. “Oh you have five witches, who needs a ghost.”

The next morning, Juana Calidad is the first juanas. To show up too see the mayor. The mayor asks, “now then senorita how may I help you?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well I was told that the person. That has to come here to present, their interest in the harvest pagent. Had to come see you. Isn’t that correct? Well here I am.” The mayor tells her, “another one.” Then Juana Manny, Juana Valentina, Juana Bautista come out of the door. Juana Calidad utters, “oh ave purisima.” The mayor uttes, “yes that’s exactly what I said.” Juana Calidad tells him, “the response is sin pecado concebido.” The mayor tells them, “well I didn’t think all of you would show up. I always said the oldest, should be the queen.” Juana Bautista tells her, “that was the decision you made that we don’t agree with. We believe everyone of us has a right.” The mayor tells her, “oh yes I’m not arguing with that. Well the thing is?” Angrily Juana Manny tells him, “what’s going on? Do you really want me to tell you. What they say about dedicators like yourself?” The mayor tells them, “the problem is the family salguero can’t have four queens.” Juana Calidad tells him, “there will be five for Juana Matilde will be showing up soon. Yes the solution is better, lets have five queens then.” The mayor tells them, “its never been done in a pagent. There can’t be five queens, there should only be one.” Juana Manny tells him, “just talk to my mother and the solution is solved.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen girl that can’t happen. That’s not how beauty pagents are done. Or what? Now then mayor this is what can be done. You have five candidates, get the committee to pick a queen.” The mayor tells her, “a jury for that there’s no time for that. I wanted the oldest sister of Calixto Salguero to be the queen. For he has worked very hard, to solve this crisis. I assure them, that it should be the oldest because it was the most logical. Well you know what, it can be any five of you. Talk amongst yourself, and don’t put me in any fights.” He goes inside the office, the girls angrily go in as well.

(Like JC’s dress.)

At the pink house, Tere Todoelmundo Ruben and Maria Delia are waiting. “Listen they left the house, pretty early this morning. They didn’t tell me, where they were going.” Ruben ask, “if they left early and together that means we have made progress.” Tere tells him, “forget that everyone of them went out separately. Taking different routes, the only difference was the time.” Todoelmundo tells him, “but aren’t they returning its getting rather late. We still have a lot of practice too do in order to win from that sincelejo team.” Tere tells them, “I heared them there coming.” Ruben tells them, “great at last.”

The girls arrive and the fight continues. Juana Matilde tells her, “man this shocks me. I should have awaken when the nun got up. Hey you should have awoken me up, to tell me what was going to happen.” Tere asks, “and where were you all?” Juana Bautista tells her, “we went to the mayors office.” Ruben asks, “the mayors office what happened?” Juana Manny tells him, “the mayor asked to see the harvest queen.” Maria Delia hearing all this pagent business gets all excited. Tere tells them, “all of you went. For you all still haven’t decided who will be it.” Juana Valentina tells them, “yes we have to make that choice.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well I’m not going to let this go girls. Especially now, that all of you have been deciding for me. None of you would allow me to talk to the mayor. Oh girl your crazy.” Juana Valentina tells her, “Juana Matilde listen here we talked about it outside. Were going to discuss this in private do me a favor.” Juana Matilde tells her, “we are in private.” Maria Delia tells Ruben, “beauty pagent I also want to be queen.” Ruben tells her, “it has to be one of the family.” Maria Delia tells him, “but soon my love. I’m going to be a part of the family. Well thinking clearly, I don’t think I can do this. For there’s still a lot of things, needed to be done for our wedding.” Todoelmundo tells them, “ok enough all of you its time to change so we can train. Oh yes with enthusiasum, with joy now get up there and change. Quick quick.” Tere grabs Maria Delia, “come on lets go make some lemonade.” Ruben tells him, “now then Todoelmundo remember to hit them in different areas.” Todoelmundo asks, “hey not to be a meddler but I want to ask a question. Hey Ruben, why do you treat Juana Valentina differently?” Ruben asks, “differently in what respects.” Todoelmundo tells him, “apart of all the juanas.” Ruben tells him, “well I just think its impressions of you Todoelmundo. Plus I’m just tired of them always fighting. Yes that is what it is, see you later.” Todoelmundo yells out, “now then girls everyone ready come down now.” Then he blows his whistle.

Over at the judge’s house, Margarita Cruz tells him. “Oh the mayor called me, it was so embarssing. He told me all of them went to apply for the harvest queen. When I arrived everyone told me what had occured.” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “and the mayor didn’t try to stop the fight?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “well it wasn’t inside the mayors office but outside.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “the problem is all of them want to be the queen of the harvest. Its understandable them being at their age.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “but now they are arguing over everything. Yes Calixto has to talk to them seriously.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well Calixto thinks its just a fight between siblings which it is. Its just gotten really big dimensions purposions.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “listen the 5 Juanas have been distinctively known. To everyone, that they are united bunch. Through the good times and bad. Now everyone was shocked to see it, that they all witnessed their sad spectacular.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “my godson told me that this wasn’t going to end well. That’s why he tried to help, by having that soccer game.” Margarita Cruz asks, “so what have you decided in that regards?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “he wouldn’t like me to say no.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “but this could hurt you.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “yes Margarita and know but…”

Orlando and Juana Bautista have fun in the rain. “Let it continue raining.” Juana Bautista ask, “so how did it go at the school?” Orlando tells her, “they contracted me its just great now. The pay isn’t that great, but I can now stay here on this land.” Juana Bautista tells him, “plus your going to do something that is to teach.” Orlando tells her, “well I’m thinking I can tutor or do other classes. So I can get extra money.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’m so happy for you.” Orlando tells her, “now we can at last think of the future.” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes the future has me thinking about it so very much.” Orlando asks, “you who lets destiny work itself out are worried about the future.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I must have a response to say to Dona Dona.” Orlando asks, “and what does Dona Dona and your future thoughts have to do with our future.” Juana Bautista tells him, “hey forgive me for I don’t see the logic in that my life.” Juana Bautista asks, “what do you think she’s going to want to talk about?” Orlando tells her, “well that senora Dona I hardly know. I can’t even image it. Yes I am intrigued, which is quite logical.” Juana Bautista tells him, “she’s going to want to talk about our future.” Orlando asks, “how do you know oh I know. You read about it in the cards right?” Juana Bautista tells him, “no but just really think about this. What else could it be? She has asks, every one of my sisters. Pair by pair, for what else.” Orlando tells her, “well seeing it like that that does sound logical.” Juan Bautista hugs him, “oh yes it has lots of logic. I’m so very happy.” Orlando gives her a big hug and tells her, “yes me too my love.”

Mauricio is talking with Juana Calidad. “Listen I’m sure of this, I put this book over here like this. The more important thing is, this container where I carefully put the money. I am very careful, because I’m afraid of losing it.” Mauricio tells her, “now dear don’t become obsessed with this.” Juana Calidad tells him, “but Mauricio I hardly slept last night. I was so scared, and heard noises all night. In the end I prayed 11 rosaries.” Mauricio utters, “11 roaries.” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes even sor Juana Inez de la cruz. Which are really quite long.” Mauricio tells her, “listen my Cadi why don’t we do something. I have an idea, why don’t we talk to the priest. He can come by, and sprinkle holy water all over the house. Especially here in your bedroom, or where ever they appear. So this holy water, yes it protects one from all the spooks.” Overwhelmed with emotion, Juana Calidad goes to Mauricio. They kiss, and she tells him. “Your so smart Mauricio.” Mauricio asks, “you do love me right?” Juana Calidad serious again tells him, “you know that I do.” Mauricio tells her, “well Cadi I have been talking too my parents. I discuss too them, that we were planning on getting married. I asked if they could ask for your hand formally.” Juana Calidad asks, “is that how its done?” Mauricio tells her, “yes exactly they will accompany me to Don Calixto’s house to formally ask for your hand. There’s just one problem.” Juana Calidad scared goes to the cross. “Oh saint antonia maria clarice, they do not want me to marry him?”

Mauricio tells her, “don’t even think that Juana Calidad of course they do. The problem is my mother, would feel very uncomfortable asking for your hand. Only with Don Calixto there, she would also like it if Dona Dona were there as well. They are friends and have known each other all their lives. That it would be the apropriate thing too do.” Juana Calidad asks, “asking Dona Dona to give her my hand. Like she was my mother.” Mauricio tells her, “yes what is your opinion about this?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well I don’t know Mauricio. Oh I don’t know what too do, oh dear lord enlighten me. Oh I don’t know, how these things are.” Mauricio tells her, “considering we have already discussed our plans with Dona Dona it might sound so weird.” Juana Calidad tells him, “Mauricio the thing is sometimes Dona Dona acts pretty strange. Maybe she gets bothered by this. Hey why don’t we do one thing. I will talk to my father, and see what he has too say about this. Then I will tell you alright.” Mauricio tells her, “alright Cadi I just thinking about that I may marry you. I just want to have a great party, to pick you up and give you a big hug.” Juana Calidad pushes him away, “no no you have to dance by yourself Mauricio.” Mauricio ask, “but aren’t you happy?” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes but dancing in pairs is the sign of the devil.” Mauricio utters, “oh Cadi you and your things.” Juana Valentina yells out, “everyone please come into the livingroom please come on.” Juana Calidad utters, “oh lord saint. Lets go see, what the boss wants.” Mauricio tells her, “yes the great white boss.”

Tere tells her, “hopefully they won’t fight for this.” Juana Manny tells her, “now why are you bothering us so much.” Tere tells them, “enough everyone.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yeah what’s the problem now.” Juana Valentina tells her, “wait till everyone is here alright. Simply I got an idea, of how we can pick the harvest queen.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen girl I don’t know what solution that your talking about. The only thing I’m saying is this, I won’t give in. Do you agree with me Miguel?” Miguel tells them, “you would be the perfect queen. There’s no other option, so there shouldn’t be another choice.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes that’s correct.” Octavio kisses Juana Manny, “no the better choice after my Juana Manny.” Juana Valentina tells them, “oh you lot are acting like little children. No me fregue, hear me out the solution is easy. We’re going to do a raffle, that is that.”

Juana Bautista tells her, “I think letting the fortune have the last word. Oh yes that’s perfect.” Juana Manny tells her, “forget that.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh come on Juana Manny really think about this girl. Its best for everyone, nobody is going to back down or give in. I know this, and only one can be the queen. Girl there isn’t another solution.” Juana Manny asks, “what were going to have a raffle because you said so.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey enough Juana Manny. I will accept the raffle idea, but one thing that’s true even if I lose that raffle. I’m still going to be the queen. Hey there’s no point in that raffle anyway.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh no don’t say that fortune is going to decide. This choice has to be the voluntary will of the divine. Isn’t that right Mauricio?” Mauricio tells them, “yes my love and the lord has said that you would be the queen.” Juana Manny asks “what and god appeared and told you.” Mauricio tells her, “no but its obvious that Juana Calidad. Is very discreet, she wants to be the queen of the harvest. The lord illuminated her.” Octavio tells him, “its what I hate most of politicians. They invent any old thing. I’m just saying.” Manuel Efe arrives everyone moans. “Manuel Efe says hello too all of you plus all the guests. Also to Terezalsura.” One by one they get up from their seats. Octavio grabs Juana Manny, “come on firecracker.” Juana Calidad tells him, “ave purisima.” Juana Matilde utters, “bye Tere by Manuel Efe.” Tere yells out, “that raffle idea was a great idea.” Juana Valentina tells her, “see Tere I’ve done everything but my sisters are a bunch of mules no fregue. Oh dear lord.” She heads upstairs, and Manuel Efe sits with Tere. “They are still fighting what a shame daaa.” Tere repeats, “yes sonny they are still fighting Manuel Efe excuse me.” When she leaves, he grins once more.

Over at the office, Ruben tells him. “A couple of minutes ago, I talked to santiago. He told me, the team of sincelejo fully agreed to compete with our team.” Todoelmundo tells him, “yes and that means there is justice from that side. But it hasn’t helped this fight. They play only to dominate, and win from each other. If they talk to one another, its just a bunch of insults. Listen Rubencho, this plan didn’t work.” Ruben tells him, “no we must be persistant. My sisters are used to winning, if they want to win they must play as a team. Isn’t that true? Don’t you worry, the threat of lossing will unite them once more.” Todoelmundo tells him, “I hope you have every reason Ruben. Yes I really do think, its quite difficult.” Ruben tells him, “what must be done is support them you know.”

Judge Geremias Guerra goes and visits Calixto. Calixto tells him, “listen my daughters really care for one another. This is just a matter of a sibling fight, their fight will pass.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “but his fight is starting to become public Calixto.” Calixto asks, “what for just because they started fighting in the streets. Listen how many people, fight in the steets compadre. My guess is, they let out a few insults. This town overheard them, and the gossipers took over. You know how, they do like to meddle into people’s affairs. Curious people like to invent and exaggerate things.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen you know my opinion. You know what your doing.” Calixto tells him, “listen I’m not going to interfere with nothing. They should fix this matter, among themselves. For they are old enough, I know they wouldn’t like a complaining father.” There’s someone at the door, but neither of them get it. In the end Dona Dona comes out of her room. “Look it you two, are you two deaf you didn’t get the door.” Calixto tells her, “hey I thought Ophelia would be opening the door my dear.” Dona Dona tells him, “caramba the employee left for a minute.”

When Dona Dona opens the door, she is sweet and cordial to Juana Calidad. “Good morning Juana Calidad how are you today?” Juana Calidad tells her, “sacred jesus’s heart.” Dona Dona tells her, “in you I confide.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen I’m sorry Dona Dona. That I have come to disturb you, but I must talk to my father.” Dona Dona sweetly tells her, “yes Calixto’s over there Calidad. Please come on in my dear.” Calixto excitedly tells him, “oh did you hear that?” Judge Geremias Guerra asks, “hear what?” Calixto tells him, “Dona Dona treated Juana Calidad sweetly.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh ave purisima.” Calixto tell her, “hello dear.” Judge Geremias Guerra utters, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Calidad tells him, “hello father hello judge. Listen I’m sorry to disturb you father. But I really must talk too you father.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “hey don’t worry about me I’m going to see if I can interogate Dona.” Calixto utters, “sure go ahead comparede.” Juana Calidad utters, “yes thank you.”

Calixto asks, “now then what is it?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well Mauricio Fuentelafria wants to ask for my hand in marriage.” Calixto tells her, “that’s wonderful I image your very happy.” Juana Calidad tells him, “yes father but you know that marriage does scare me a bit. In all forms, I really do think that Mauricio would be a very good husband for me.” Calixto tells her, “yes I also think that same thing. I’m glad that this remains in the family. You know they are good and honest people. The fuentelafria’s have been good friends of ours. Well our entire lives.” Juana Calidad tells him, “well yes there is the problem.” Calixto asks, “what’s the problem?” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh father if you two weren’t that close. Mauricio’s mother wouldn’t feel uncomfortable, you know asking for my hand considering Dona Dona.” Calixto asks, “Dona Dona as well?” Juana Calidad tells her, “let me tell you father. What’s going on is, Mauricio’s mother well she feels uncomfortable. To come here to her house. To ask for my hand, and knowing Dona Dona is in the house. So I told Mauricio, that yes I would talk to you first. But Mauricio told me, that after the conversation we had with Dona Dona. He’s sure that Dona Dona, will say yes.” Calixto asks, “hey come over here what conversation are you talking about. Hey let me find out, about this talk at least so I can fully understand.” Juana Calidad tells him, “father she just asked us about our futures. You know later, she asked Mauricio to ask me if I wanted to marry him. She told him, that he had to ask for my hand in marriage. Its like Dona Dona, well she accepted us as a couple.” Calixto asks, “what Dona Dona did that?” Juana Calidad utters, “yes.” Calixto tells her, “hey wait one minute.” Juana Calidad utters, “father what’s going on? Where are you going?”

Judge Geremias Guerra asks Dona, “listen Dona Margarita and I would love it if you were the matron of honor at our wedding. Think of it as this, as a reconciliation between the two of you.” Dona Dona ask, “and who told you that I wanted to reconcile with her.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “leave that aside now Dona.” Calixto so full of love, goes over to Dona Dona and gives her a big hug and kiss. Dona Dona utters, “Mr. Salguero what has gotten into you? What’s going on with you?”

At lunch, Juana Matilde tells Todoelmundo. “Listen I know that you want to discuss the soccer game. I’m going to ask you for a favour. Do it after I have finished eating. Just talking about soccer I get really tired.” Todoelmundo tells them, “what I have to tell you all is among us only. Not for the other players hear this.” Tere tells him, “listen you can tell us what ever you want. Or how ever you want to tell us, or where you want to tell us my life. Listen were not going to give you any conditions so just relax.” Todoelmundo tells them, “listen the game is a few days away. At this rate were going to lose.” Juana Manny tells him, “oh no we have been killing ourselves with this training. We’re not going to lose.” Juana Calidad shows up, “oh ave maria purisima.” Tere uttes, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Calidad tells them, “sorry for being late Terezalsura. Hello Todoelmundo, how are you doing?” Todoelmundo tells her, “I’m well thank you. I was talking too your sisters about the soccer game. Listen girls this is the first time, I’ve been a trainer. I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot. What I’m saying is, we have too win.” Juana Valentina tells him, “listen we all want to win so that’s not going to be a problem. So just relax.”

Todoelmundo tells them, “well at the way were going we’re going to lose. I have told you, that this sport is a team project. One has to play with complicity.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen the most important is that everyone does the best for one’s self. Stop being so mysterious.” Todoelmundo tells her, “no with that your very much mistaken. Take that away from your head quickly. There’s not my time, for our meeting.” Tere tells them, “now this match isn’t against anybody but sincelejo my love. We are all from corozal, so the important thing is we have to put the name of corozal really high.” Todoelmundo tells them, “we’re going to discuss now a few moves. I want you all to try out for tomorrow’s practice.” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen excuse me Todoelmundo. I have taken into account everything that you have said. Everything that you have told us, but please lets discuss this topic after our meal.” Todoelmundo utters, “oh dear lord. Yes that team of sincelejo is going not only going to win. They are going to get a multitude of goals. Oh dear lord, why did I put myself into this. Half of the team, has the mentality of a loser.” Tere tells them, “me with a mind of a loser sonny I don’t think so.” Todoelmundo tells them, “listen you are 6 players. The other five including Maria Delia, they play all together. Five can’t win the game. I’m saying that if corozal loses, it will be all of your faults. But there’s nothing more to say about this.” All the girls glance at one another.

Ruben is with Calixto, “listen dad I know we have moved a step. But your becoming too confident. That doesn’t mean that my mother, will fully accept my sisters.” Calixto tells him, “but now your mother is now interested in their futures. That means she’s seeing them, well with different eyes.” Ruben tells him, “oh father don’t be so sure about that.” Calixto tells him, “she’s even nice to them.” Ruben tells him, “well that doesn’t mean we can have a grand old party.” Calixto tells him, “I’m going to tell you something Ruben. When Juana Calidad arrived, I thought your mother would make up an excuse. Or insult her, on the contrary she let her come in. instead she was very sweet her too her.” Ruben tells him, “I don’t want to have fake illusions. I’m going to give you some advice. Be on hold, so you won’t get hit.” Dona Dona tells them, “now that there’s no intrusions its time to come to the table.” Ruben tells him, “see I told you oh no.” Calixto tells him, “hey no matter what I really do think that your mother has indeed changed.” Ruben tells him, “why don’t we wait till we find out what’s going on. Lets not advance ourselves, she might regret it later.” Calixto tells him, “you know something Ruben I was going to invite her. To see the soccer game of your sisters, but as a referre.” Ruben tells him, “hey you can’t miss this game. If you don’t show up, my sisters are going to kill you.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes I’m going.” Dona Dona tells him, “are you again deaf Mr. Salguero. I am waiting so we can start eating.” Calixto utters, “I’m coming I’m coming. I was just having a rumsito with Ruben.”

Manuel Efe is in sincelejo. Giving Yolanda a back rub, “I don’t know what’s going on Manuel Efe. First it was the cows giving water instead of milk. Next is this blasted hicups that don’t stop. Its been two days now, it just doesn’t want too stop. Its like bad luck is all around me now.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey this is going to stop. Don’t you worry.” Yolanda tells him, “no this is quite difficult than I imaged. I’ve done everything, holding my breath. Drinking lots of water, with sugar no sugar with a spoon what ever nothing.” Manuel Efe tells her, “hey enough already this will pass so stop worying.” Yolanda tells him, “no this is quite difficult. Even the employees tried to scare me, so I can stop nothing.” Manuel Efe tells her, “I just can’t believe nothing exisit is big for Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Yolanda tells him, “listen ex-Del Cabrales what your asking me too do well it requires a lot of energy. Hey your relaxed, because your not the one that’s going to do it.” Manuel Efe tells her, “Yolanda I need to know that your going to be good at this. So I can leave relaxed.” Yolanda tells him, “yes but what if these hicups don’t go away?” Manuel Efe tells her, “for a bunch of hiccups your going to lose this satisfaction jolly.” He tries to scare her, she jumps but the hiccups don’t go away. “Oh Manuel Efe you enough.” Manuel Efe tells her, “I’ll continue with the massages.”

The next morning, Orlando and Juana Bautista goes to see Dona Dona. “Now then we already know, that were going to be working in our respected fields to maintain ourselves.” Dona Dona tells her, “I wish I could believe that.” Orlando tells her, “senora Dona I am a professional professor of logic. I have always worked, to maintain myself.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes me as well.” Dona Dona tells them, “if Mr. Salguero decides to help you out. I don’t think, your going to say no.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “when the time comes I will be discussing this with my father. As an aquarian, we fulfill our words and promises. We don’t like to take, what isn’t ours senora.” Orlando tells her, “yes that is true.” Juana Bautista tells her, “my intention isn’t that my father maintains us. For that side you can relax.” Dona Dona asks, “which side shouldn’t I be relaxed in?” Juana Bautista tells her, “we’re not leaving corozal. If that is what you want, you can forget about that.” Orlando tells her, “we’re not leaving corozal. For this is the place where we met. Here soon I’m going to be starting my new job. We would like to stay here, for we love this town very much.” Dona Dona asks, “so this is where you two met? How?” Orlando tells her, “senora remember the fair that was here in corozal. In that fair, I was the wolf man. Juana Bautista was…” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes I was very enchanted with the wolf man.” Dona Dona ask, “so I guess the wolf man was enchanted with of course Artemis.” Both glance at one another, then back at a smiling Dona Dona.

When they’re coming out, Calixto asks. “So how did it go?” Juana Bautista tells him, “fine she wanted to know our intentions of the future.” Calixto tells them, “well since that is the topic. I also want to ask the same questions.” Orlando tells him, “well Don Calixto my intentions with Juana Bautista is very serious. I want too marry her.” Calixto tells him, “that’s great for you son.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well we will discuss this topic at another time.” Calixto tells her, “well let me tell you. That soon I will be getting the money for the harvest. I want to complete my promises. If you want again, you may have your studio pretty soon.” Juana Bautista tells him, “we told Dona that we would maintain ourselves.” Calixto tells her, “listen I’m also doing this from within. Its an act of selfishness, I want to give my daughers everything. Plus I am indebted with you all.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh father I want a telescope.” Calixto asks, “a telescope.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well I want to study and paint the astro. I would be the first in the region, to paint them. Later I’ll be able to do my first exposition really.” Orlando tells him, “yes Don Calixto that is what enchants me about Juana Bautista. Even though she’s a woman full of mysteries. She has a lot of logic in her actions.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I am an aquarius and that explains my actions and atitudes.” Calixto tells her, “sure your going to have your own telescope and studio.” Juana Bautista happily hugs him, “thank you father.” Calixto tells him, “well daughter its nothing. Then we’ll see one another at the soccer game.” Orlando utters, “yes see you there Don Calixto.”

Over at the dolorosa, the guys all meet up. Mauricio greets Poncho, and glances at Octavio. “Hi Poncho, I need you too do a job for me.” Octavio tells him, “hey you have to pay in advance.” Mauricio tells him, “I need it tomorrow early in the morning.” Octavio utters, “fine but that would cost you double.” Mauricio tells him, “sure that’s no problem. Now this banner is about 1/2 meters high. 2 meters width.” Octavio asks, “anything else?” Mauricio tells him, “yes make it beautiful and very imaginative. The materials doesn’t matter, put down. Juana Calidad may god bless your goals.” Octavio asks, “that banner you will need for tomorrow’s soccor game?” Octavio tells him, “forget it I’m not making it.” Mauricio tells him, “see that Gualberto Poncho. This guy is throwing away 70 000. He just doesn’t want to work.” Octavio tells him, “you mentioned 70?” Mauricio tells him, “yes and you can count it.” Octavio tells him, “give me the 70 now and I’ll do it for you.” Mauricio utters, “so your going to play. I have two witnesses, if you don’t do this I’m sending you too court.” Octavio tells him, “listen Mr. Fuentelafria. I am no theif, and you know that. Only some thieves, and some politicians like to rob.” Mauricio tells him, “make it beautiful and very imaginative.” Octavio utters, “yes I can guarantee that.” Mauricio tells him, “well then bye Poncho Gualberto.” Octavio get a michevious grin, Poncho tells him. “Hey what a lovely chat you two had. Your lucky, you two don’t get paid to argue or you two would be starving.”

Juana Matilde and Miguel show up. “Oh hello Poncho, oh Miguel you know something. The new job that you have now, what’s worse about it is. I hardly see you man. Your now working so very much, but I’m guessing the harder you work, the more money that comes in right. Now then I’ve talked too Ruben. I told him, we should talk to Dona Dona well after the game.” Miguel tells her, “what do you mean after the game. Were going to be celebrating, all the goals that your going too make.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh yes I completely forgot about that. Now then we will talk to Dona Dona later. You know were so very important too her. Exuse me, now Poncho give me a rum for Miguel is going to treat me. Don’t forget to bring me a bottle for tomorrow’s game.” Miguel ask, “so tomorrow your going to celebrate Juana Matilde’s wins.” Poncho tells them, “hey I’m going to cheer on the team of the juanas. That is more distinctive Miguel.” Miguel tells him, “oh come on you know very well. That the star of the team is Juana Matilde.” Orlando laughs, “there’s one thing of singing than thinking. One uses a mouth, the other uses the brain.” Miguel grabs him, “listen outsider we can fight this as men in the ring. You shouldn’t have returned.” Juana Matilde grabs Miguel, “Miguel no.” Poncho yells out, “listen clearly if you lot want to fight get out of the business. Respect this business please.” Gualberto yells out, “you lot are going to end up fighting. Will it will destroy all of our friendships. Enough already.” Juana Matilde utters, “Gualberto you ruined us having drinks. Plus you shouldn’t meddle into this. Poncho where’s our rum?” Poncho utters, “hopefully this will calm all of you down.”

At the pink house, Ruben tells them. “Now tomorrow is the big game, I came by to tell everyone good luck. I don’t have a lot of hope, that you will win.” Juana Valentina ask, “then why did you organize this anyway?” Ruben tells her, “listen I’m doing this for the children but. What Todoelmundo is telling me, I was mistaken. All of you are playing your own game. All of you think, one is better than the other. Instead of competting against the other team. Your confronting each other. At this rate, neither of you will win. Inform my sisters, I was here I’ll see you all at the game.” Juana Valentina utters, “Ruben.” Ruben stops and utters, “what?” Juana Valentina tells him, “if your so sure were going too lose. Don’t bother showing up to any game then. Don’t bother, don’t bother don’t bother.” Ruben tells her, “I have to be there to thank all of the sponsers publicly. That’s the only reason so relax, as soon as the game starts I’m taking off. For I don’t want to be witness to losing goodnight.” They both stare at one another and he takes off. Juana Valentina utters, “good night.”

The next morning, Ruben gets up and screams. For he has seen Manuel Efe right next too him. “Dam it Manuel Efe never come wake me up.” Manuel Efe tells him, “but I thought you would be ready already.” Ruben yells out, “enough get out its only 6 am. Listen the game is at” Manuel Efe tells him, “remember the saying the lord helps one if they get up early. Rubencho I thought, you would always be next to Maria Delia supporting her. Your almost at the point of marrying her. Your going to marry the woman that you love.” Ruben ask, “what do you know about this? You’ve never been close to getting married.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes but I have been in love in fact. You know very well where all my affections go towards Ruben.” Ruben tells him, “love is the most beautiful of those feelings. But in fact, its the worst punishment. In one second, it makes one very happy. The second moment it makes one cry. One gives everything, to one single person. Sometimes one forgets, to keep something for yourself. Without love there is no life. A man has too eat, what an agony.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa you talk like a poet. If you talk like that to Maria Delia. I now understand why that woman, is so much in love with you. What your saying, sounds like a vallanta song. Oh what you said, that’s so very beautiful Rubencho.” Ruben gets up, “alright enough all ready. I guess you brought your european car.” Manuel Efe tells him, “well of course but I’m driving.” Ruben heads to the bathroom, “thank you jolly and congratulation. Yes full congratulations.”

Over at the pink house, Juana Valentina is still in bed. Tere gets up. “Dear its past 6, you have to get up now.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’m coming.” Tere tells her, “you know something I am quite worried. I don’t think were ever going to get over, colombia losing to Argentina 1-0. That is exactly what sincelejo is going to to with us.” Juana Manny is doing her morning exercises. Tere tells her, “dear breakfast is ready.” Juana Manny tells her, “it better be light for its best to have an empty stomach before a game.” Tere tells her, “oh who cares my love what we eat were going to get beatened.” Juana Bautista is getting dressed. Tere shows up, “good morning my dear so what are you going to eat?” Juana Bautista tells her, “what ever we have. Oh my toe really hurts.” Tere tells her, “perfect but the worst thing is that team from sincelejo its going to be hurting us really badly. Todoelmundo tells me, that they are going to get goals by our head count 11-0.” Juana Matilde is still alseep, Tere has to wake her up. “Juana Matilde wake up today is the game.” Juana Matilde asks, “oh Tere what game are you talking about.” Tere tells her, “the game were going to lose against sincelejo. Todoelmundo told me, he doesn’t know who’s the worst at playing soccer.” Juana Matilde utters, “is that what Todoelmundo is saying.” Tere tells her, “well that is what I’m saying. I can’t even image how ridiculous were going to be at that field.” Juana Matilde utters, “I see I see I’m totally shocked.” Tere goes to see Juana Calidad. “Hi my love, are you doing your prayers?” Juana Calidad tells her, “no I finished that hours ago. I’m praying that the game goes well.” Tere tells her, “girl your wasting your time. We’re not going to win, even if we have 11 virgins protecting us my love.” Then she leaves and begins packing their things. Todoelmundo ask, “so how do they look?” Tere tells him, “the same Todoelmundo but I’ve been hitting them hard. Just like you told me.” Todoelmundo tells her, “I guess were the only team that uses phycology in reverse.” Tere ask, “what do you think Todoelmundo will happen at that game.” Todoelmundo tells her, “Tere lets just hope that the juanas fix their own personal problems between them.” Tere tells him, “well that was the idea. But what will happen after the game.” Todoelmundo tells her, “Tere a couple of months ago there was a soccer game. That broke all the records, it was 17-0. Ours could break, 0-0 in lossing of course.”

Over at the judge’s house, he’s reading the morning newspaper. Margarita Cruz tells him, “Geremias its already 7 am. We’re going to be late, if you don’t hurry and change.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “now relax Margarita they aren’t going to start without us.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “if only I could be this calm.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “relax were not going to be in a hurry. I’ve done this my entire life.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “and it has resulted very well no. Ok I’m going to fix your things then.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “they are already done.” Margarita Cruz asks, “what do you mean its ready then why am I here then?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “to keep me company Margarita Cruz. Don’t you worry, I’m a man that has gotten used to doing things on my own.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “but now your going to have to change your customs. I am now here, to spoil you and please you. Now then I’m going to the church, to pray that things go well for my girl.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “alright and pray for the rest of the juanas. Especially to see, that our efforts will get a good result.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “ok I’m also going to pray that nothing happens to you at the game. Take care my love.” Then she kisses him once more and leaves the house. Judge Geremia Guerra smiles and beams with happiness.

Over at the salguero house, Dona Dona tells Ophelia. “Now then Ophelia, clean it harder so the spots will go away.” Calixto yells out, “ok I’m going out now.” Dona Dona tells him, “alright may things go well for you Mr. Salguero. Over after your done at the ranch. Go to that market, and buy some nepero.” Calixto tells her, “I’m not going to the ranch?” Dona Dona ask, “why not?” Calixto tells her, “I’m going to the girls soccer match. Its corozal against sincelejo, the juanas are going to be playing.” Dona Dona tells him, “boxing soccer? Oh your daughters, are quite feminine. So what time is this blasted game?” Calixto tells her, “why are you interested in going?” Dona Dona tells him, “no only if I’m gagged and tied up. I’ll go to that embarassing soccer game.” Calixto utters, “umda who understand this woman.”

Juana Matilde is complaining once more. “Oh man todoelmundo the game starts at 10 am. Its only 8 am, I hate waking up so blasted early I’m shocked.” Todoelmundo tells her, “well we have to warm up before warming up. Well with this team, it doesn’t matter if were cold and not warmed up.” Juana Valentina tells her, “its so very beautiful your support man.” Todoelmundo tells her, “hey I’m just saying what everyone has been able to detect. With this team, there’s no point. Ok everyone lets go.” Tere yells out, “ok everyone lets go or we can get a big W.” Juana Calidad asks, “what is a W?” Tere tells her, “it stands for withdrawl. Hey my love wait for me.” Manuel Efe shows up, “Manuel Efe is here I am joined by his cousin Ruben. COROZAL COROZAL COROZAL.” Ruben yells out, “enough already hello girls. Here are the uniforms from our sponsers. This is what your all going to be wearing.” Juana Bautista tells him, “it better fit for its pretty late Ruben to change them.” Ruben tells her, “they gave it too me a half an hour ago.” Manuel Efe tells them, “daaa now then I just hope that you enter that game. With enthusiasium and with the spirit of champions. Yes like it should be, then they drop all the shirts on the table. I have certain experience in this. We have to enter winning, winning and very concentrated. Now then I’m going, to take you all in my european car. All of you will fit in there, now Ruben Terezalsura and Todoelmundo will take that strange car of Todoelmundo.” Juana Matilde tells him, “you know what Manuel Efe. There’s a spot free in your car, I’m going with Todoelmundo.” Juana Manny tells him, “I’m going walking excuse me.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well then Juana Valentina, You can come with me next too me. You all in the back. COROZAL COROZAL COROZAL.”

Ruben ask, “do you like the uniforms?” Juana Valentina tells him, “what listen if your like the rest. Thinking we’re going to lose. We could have played in our swimming suits. Who cares about the uniforms.” Ruben stops her from leaving, “they say love is the most beautiful of the feelings. Plus the worst punishment. In one second one is crying, the other second your smiling and laughing. Overjoyed, you give your love to the person you supposedly love. One forget that they have to keep something for themselves. Without love there’s no life, with it in fact is agony.” Juana Valentina ignores his words, she simply utters. “Don’t forget to lock the door before leaving.”

Margarita Cruz returns and tells Judge Geremias Guerra. “Now Geremias, its 10 to 10 am. We’re not going to arrive on time. The judge comes out wearing a uniform. Oh it seems everything still fits well. So how do you feel?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well its been a while since I’ve worn these shoes they do pinch a bit.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh but you look pretty good.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “thanks too you Margarita not because of the clothes. But when I put it on, I’m happy for myself. It means I have conserved my figure.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “yes of course.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well it hasn’t been very long. Since I used to conduct every weekened a game. I just hope that I haven’t forgotten how.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “look one has to have two conditions. One has to know the rules, plus have a good sense of justice. You have both prizes.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well the rules do bother me so. I don’t know, if they have changed at all. Hopefully I will it right.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “now then if you don’t feel well. Or your feeling unwell, your not going to go crazy. Your going to stop this game, and take a breather.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “oh I won’t go too those extremes Margarita. Well then lets go then.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “alright lets go then.” Judge Geremias Guerra utters, “hopefully I won’t forget my whistle.”

At the game, there’s a banner. Juana Calidad. May god bless your games is ready. There’s also a picture of the church and what looks like an angel. Manuel Efe is screaming, “COROZAL COROZAL COROZAL.” Mauricio yells out, “Cadi my love come over here. Do you like it?” Juana Calidad smiles, and he kisses her forehead. Juana Manny glances at the sign, and continues warming up. Then Octavio shows up, “hey firecracker? The sign reads, Juana Manny is the best. Yes this is a great banner.” Juana Manny goes over and gives him a kiss and a hug. The sign bothers Mauricio, plus the other girls. Ruben glances at a still angry Juana Valentina.” Miguel tells Juana Matilde, “oh these pairs do what ever they can to catch people’s attentions. You know very well I do support you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes I know Miguel.” Miguel tells her, “yes I don’t need nothing of that sort. To catch anybody’s attentions.” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey Miguel I know that you do love me. Plus those posters, well they won’t help you win or make goals. I’m just saying.” Miguel gives her a hug and tells her. “Your complete correct. Your the best.” Calixto tells Ruben, “oh great job in organizing this Ruben.” Ruben tells him, “thanks father the best thing is with the sponsers. We’re now able to pay the kids education.” Calixto utters, “look at that fool running around with those flags.” Ruben tells him, “well nothing is really perfect.” Calixto asks, “why do you say that?” Ruben tells him, “well my sisters still haven’t reconcilled father.” Calixto tells him, “oh come on they are going to do it. Its boring hearing the same thing over and over.” Ruben tells them, “listen when this game begins. I’m just saying that all of them, have to work as team. They all need one another.”

Over at the park, Manuel Efe appoints himself in charge of the cheering section. Todoelmundo gets the group together. “Now we’re going to show that all that training wasn’t for nothing. We’re going to win, remember they’re 11 team mates. We’re going to go over the stragetgy. We’re going win, now put that in your heads that ball isn’t going to hurt you. We’re going to win, corozal corozal corozal.” They guys welcome the judge, “hi judge how’s it going?” Calixto asks, “oh its been years I’ve seen you like this comparde.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “well the truth is I feel a bit ridiculous.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “he looks good right? I’m just saying.” Ruben tells him, “yes thank you for doing this and coming.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “I told you you could count on me I wasn’t going to fail you. Now then I’m going to talk to both team coaches. So we can begin the match.” Octavio puts Juana Manny’s sign behind the cheering section. As does Mauricio.

Margarita Cruz tells Judge Geremia Guerra, “now then you take care now good luck too you. She then goes to see Calixto, and tells him. “Apparently Juana Manny, is talking seriously in marrying Octavio.” Calixto asks, “and what is your opinon with this?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “I’m overjoyed but the most important thing is that they both love one another. Yes very important.” Calixto tells her, “yes.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “well a marriage without love is torture.” Ruben overhears this and gets a bit upset. Calixto tells her, “yes fully agree on that.” Judge Geremias Guerra returns, “now the other team from sincelejo is incomplete. The coach told me, to wait five more minutes. So I told them, that it was alright. But after that corozal will win with a W.” Calixto tells him, “yes that is the law.”

Todoelmundo is still trying to get the girl to have energy. “We’re going to win right?” Juana Valentina tells them, “now then girls were going to play are hardest. Those sincelejo girls, have to know who are the bosses of this game alright?” The others join in, except of course the rest of the juanas. Todoelmundo utters, “oh yes that great.” Tere tells them, “yes one has to have optimism. So everyone can win.” Todoelmundo tells them, “now then the first strategy is Tere your sitting on the beach.” Tere ask, “why am I sitting on the beach Todoelmundo. Your going to replace anyone of them. If they have to abandon the game. It seems it won’t be long for that too happen.”

Then shock for the girls, when they see Yolanda Del Cabrales. Yolanda waves at them, plus Ruben. Which annoys Juana Valentina. The guys simply glance at one another. Manuel Efe smiles, and then utters. “Oh the horror.” The coach asks, “and why are you late.” Yolanda utters, “oh my life I’m late because I had to paint my nails.” The coach utters, “we almost lost because of you.” Yolanda utters, “alright now then what’s next?” Juana Valentina utters, “what is that woman doing here?” Juana Matilde tells them, “it seems that one wants to play for the other team.” Juana Manny tells her, “that woman shows up where one doesn’t image.” Juana Calidad utters, “oh saint astokio bendita I’m begging you please there be no problems.”

Ruben utters, “oh this is a nightmare. When am I ever going to get rid of Yolanda Del Cabrales. Godfather may I sue her yes or do.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “what just because she’s playing in a soccer game. No that’s impossible.” Ruben tells them, “but she came to the house. Told all of us, that she was saying goodbye. That she didn’t want too know nothing about me. Then what is she doing here then?” Calixto tells them, “she’s very persistance hey comparde.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “what she is is a… May god forgive me, for what I was going to say.” Manuel Efe comes running by, “Rubencho Rubencho are you seeing what I’m seeing. Its none other than Yolanda Del Cabrales.” Ruben tells her, “yes I can tell.” Yolanda sees him and flirts his way. Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “I think its time we start the game.” Margarita Cruz utters, “Geremias be careful.” Poncho utters, “incredible.” Octavio ask, “what that returning?” Poncho tells him, “oh man that woman is great looking.” They utter, “yes.”

The teams line up, and the game begins. Judge Geremias Guerra yells out, “team captains over here. Juana Valentina and Yolanda show up. Now listen then have a good game, let there be no complications.” Yolanda tells her, “girl you have to play clean.” Juana Valentina doesn’t say a word. “Ok I’m going to throw a coin up in the air. Who will pick the side?” Yolanda tells her, “hey listen my life why bother. I’m going too win my life.” Judge Geremias Guerra ask, “and you?” Juana Valentina tells him, “heads judge.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “its tails sincelejo begins the game. Now then which side do you want.” Yolanda utters, “over here.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells them, “now then to your places.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I’ll begin.” The guys look at one another. Yolanda utters, “we’re going to win.” The whistle is blow, which starts the game.” Ruben utters, “everything will go well.”

Octavio yells out, “go Juana Manny your the best.” Poncho tells him, “you know Octavio I’m going to say something. That woman from sincelejo, I hate her personality.” Octavio tells him, “but she’s spectacular.” Poncho tells him, “I meant its every where that woman steps dust flies.” Octavio tells him, “yes that’s true. Its because of her hiring us to sing that night. My firecracker didn’t want too forgive me.” Mauricio tells him, “Juana Calidad is concentrating more on praying than on playing my brother. That Yolanda woman, makes her lose her focus.” Gualberto tells him, “well any man really Maudi.” Mauricio tells him, “that wasn’t what I was referring too. Why did that woman have to show up here.” Todoelmundo yells out, “go Juana Bautista go quickly pass it to Juana Calidad she’s all by herself. Juana Calidad is alone. In the end Juana Bautisa plays on her own. Someone takes the ball from her. Oh man at this rate were going to lose. Come on take it away, Juana Valentina come on Juana Valentina. Hey its not your ball, pass it too someone pass it.” Octavio yells out again, “Juana Manny is the best.” Juana Valentina gets the ball again, but doesn’t pass it to anybody. Juana Manny screams, “pass it pass it.”

Maria Delia so frightened by getting hit simply watches everyone. Juana Matilde yells out, “hey its 3 against 1 that’s not fair.” Todoelmundo yells out, “just get it get it.” In the end Yolanda makes a goal. Manuel Efe yells out, “goal yes. I mean what a disaster.” Juana Matilde sarcastically yells out, “smile smile its beautiful.” Juana Calidad yells out, “hey your have to pass it I was clear.” The cheers from sincelejo fill the field. Orlando yells out, “that happened because Juana Manny didn’t give it Juana Valentina. Nor didn’t want to give the ball to Juana Bautista.” Octavio yells out, “well forgive me at least my Juana Manny managed to move around. While some girls, should only dedicate themselves to reading cards.” Orlando tells him, “hey don’t you talk about Juana Bautista in that way.” Octavio yells out, “yeah I’m talking about her.” Poncho breaks them up. Manuel Efe yells out, “the only one playing well is Juana Valentina.” Mauricio yells out, “forget about Juana Valentina its Juana Calidad that’s playing well.” Calixto tells Ruben, “man I’m thinking Todoelmundo doesn’t know how to play soccer. Listen there’s no tactics, there’s no combinations. He didn’t teach them how to play as a team.” Ruben tells him, “old man its not his fault. He’s tried to teach them too play as a team. But they just didn’t want to listen.” Calixto tells him, “hey wait we will see a goal soon to match up the game.” Margarita Cruz utters, “yes that is what we’re going too see.”

Dona Dona looks outside, “man you can’t see anybody. Did the entire town, go to that blasted game. A taxi has to come by, she goes to her room. Takes out her keys, now then how long do those soccer games go too. Three hours I’m guessing, well in any case there’s enough time to do what I need to do.” She puts her things away and smiles.

Back at the game, Maria Delia makes a goal. Everyone celebrates, Todoelmundo yells out. “Yes girls were going to take the advantage.” So excited Juana Matilde hugs Juana Calidad. When she realizes what she’s doing, she pushes her away. Juana Valentina shows off to Yolanda. Calixto tells them, “see we’re now in a great condition.” Margarita Cruz yells out, “yes girls were going to show them.” Calixto tells him, “oh I didn’t know your girlfriend could play like that.” Ruben tells him, “hey me neither but my sisters have to do something. Or else were going to lose the game.” Calixto tells him, “hey we’re going to win this you’ll see.” Ruben tells them, “yes things are going to get better.” Manuel Efe tells him, “it seems to me your girlfriend was trained in the states. Your going to get married to a Valderama.” Ruben ignores him, “bravo bravo come on lets go.” Manuel Efe continues, “one more thing who invited Yolanda Del Cabrales?” Ruben tells him, “listen that woman must have a radar for she’s not leaving me in peace.” Manuel Efe tells him, “but you can’t deny she’s attractive.” Ruben yells out, “Manuel Efe just concentrate on the game alright. Yes corozal, corozal.” In the game everyone gets up, for someone has hit the judge with the ball. Yolando utters, “sorry judge.” Judge Geremias yells out, “ouch it came from over there.” Yolanda tells him, “hey this is a game who knows where it comes from.” Margarita Cruz is ready to stop the game. Calixto stops her, “no you might get hit as well.” Margarita Cruz yells out, “but he might be hurt. I told him, think about this don’t get involved with these types of things. He’s not a teenager.” Ruben tells her, “but Margarita don’t worry he’s like a rubber.” Manuel Efe tells him, “still that was a hard hit.” Margarita Cruz asks, “oh come on Ruben it was a hard hit. How long does this game last dear lord?” Ruben tells her, “30 seconds see the judge got up.”

The game starts again, and Juana Manny fights against Juana Bautista. Juana Bautista tells her, “listen just because your a boxer doesn’t mean you have to control every game. I could have gotten it.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh come off it you really were going to make that ball fly girl. Or are you a witch, is that your advantage.” Juana Bautista tells her, “you won’t let me do anything for your ego has taken over everything girl.” Then they begin fighting, Judge Geremias Guerra goes to them. “Enough the game has begun again. You must think about the game.” Poncho tells them, “you know I’ve been at a lot of games. I’ve seen teams fighting with other teams. But I’ve never seen team mates fighting against themselves.” Orlando tells him, “listen here Juana Manny is greedy and think she’s still in the ring. She doesn’t want to share the ball with Juana Bautisa. That’s why she fighting against her.” Octavio tells him, “hey from what I’m seeing its reversed. Juana Bautista just wants to fight with Juana Manny.” Orlando tells him, “she didn’t want to give the ball to her.” Gualberto tells him, “enough with the fighting. You can’t start a fight here, just because they are fighting out there. Calm down already.” Yolanda pushes Juana Valentina and runs off. Juana Valentina complains, but nothing happens. Yolanda returns, hoping to get one of the juanas removed from the game.

The judge stops this, and yells out. “Lets start the game again.” Its break time, the guys all want to go but Todoelmundo stops them. He and Tere go talk to the girls, angrily he tells them. “Everyone get over here. That was the most deplorable spectacle that I have seen in my entire life. Why did I kill myself, trying to train you all. What for, for it went in one ear and out the other. Why why.” Juana Matilde tells them, “its all my sisters…” Ruben tells them, “my sisters nothing Juana Matilde. You know how a house is built, step by step. For that one needs help by a lot of people. An electrician, a plumber, an architects. A work foremen, no one person could make a house. No matter how long he will take, it would take his entire life. A job is built on various people, to play soccer you need a team. Not one single player, or else what’s the point of having 10 more. Each of you needs the rest, or haven’t you noticed that oh man. Plus in a family, its not just one person but various people. There’s nothing finer, than walking with a companion. There’s no happiness when one is alone. No they are happy, when one finds a good friend. Yes that is correct, make that clear too yourself.” Juana Calidad utters, “yes that’s right yes this is all your fault for having Ruben be that mad.” Juana Manny tells them, “yes the next thing is he’s going to say were a bunch of sinners.”

Back at the pink house, Dona Dona utters. “Man if I were a robber, I would have robbed the place countless of times. Oh where are those girls brains, why haven’t they changed those locks. Oh today I have plenty of time, to look around.”

Back at the game. Yolanda pushes and steals the ball from Juana Calidad. Juana Calidad yells out, “a daughter of the lord doesn’t do that. Judge stop this.” He does, and Yolanda makes another goal. The crowd goes wild, Manuel Efe smiles. Calixto yells out, “its Todoelmundo’s fault they are not playing a good game.” Manuel Efe tells him, “hey maybe he’s not playing it 4-4. Its now a tight game. The crowd screams, “sincelejo sincelejo.” Yolanda yells out, “give water to the corozal girls they need it. Do you tell them, or shall I.” Mauricio yells out, “Juana Calidad my love show them girl that you can do this. Yes you can my life.” Octavio yells out, “firecracker go firecracker go. Go Juana Manny go.” Miguel yells out, “hey Juana Matilde you did it at the concert you can do this now.” Orlando yells out, “yes Juana Bautista thats it my love. Your the most enchanting woman of corozal.” The girls get another goal, and the fans go wild all except Manuel Efe of course. “Oh yes goal another one, your fiance is going to be great. She’s going to teach your kids this glorious sport.” Margarita Cruz yells out, “how long is this game going to go on. Geremias has been running too much. I don’t think Geremias, is going too last very long. What if he gets a heart attack or something.” Ruben utters, “I just hope at last this game will get my sisters back together. Go girls go.”

Time passes the girls continue to fight. Then the judge gets them all together. “Now then I’m pretty tired and were now tied. We’re not going over time, so were going to do finish this with penalties. Head or tails, good luck for everyone.” Another fight breaks out, when the team has to choose one player to finish the tie.” Juana Matilde yells out, “no I’ll do it now Todoelmundo I will run and do it. I’m the famous out of the five.” Juana Valentina tells her, “Todoelmundo no I’m the oldest I’ll do it.” Juana Bautista tells her, “what only because you say so Juana Valentina no forget it girl. That’s not the way things work.” Juana Calidad tells him, “no Todoelmundo you should let me do it I’m more religious.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no Juana Calidad.” Todoelmundo stops the fight, “the first penalty will be done by Maria Delia.” Tere yells out, “finish this todoelmundo.” Maria Delia is so overjoyed, Todoelmundo continues. “The second will be Anvel, the third tells Monica, Rosio the fouth. The fifth, Terezalsura.” Juana Matilde tells him, “but she hasn’t even played.” Todoelmundo tells them, “I’ll pay the penalty.” The juanas fight amonst themselves, and Juana Valentina gets ticked off. Juana Matilde yells out, “its all your fault Juana Valentina.” Manuel Efe chases Juana Valentina. She goes to the others, “hey all of you don’t you dare mess with Juana Valentina. Did you see that, no respect what so ever. Maria Delia gets another goal. Hey Ruben your going to marry the hero of sports star.” Ruben tells him, “shut up stop distracting me they are going to get prized already.”

Calixto tells Ruben, “Orlando and Juana Bautista are going to get married.” Ruben tells him, “well it better be fast before my mother. Tells them they have to leave corozal.” They get another goal, Manuel Efe utters, “yes great goal.” Calixto tells them, “it seems Juana Manny and Orlando are also going to get married. In fact they’re will be many weddings including yours.” Ruben simply utters, “yeah.” The sincelejo makes a goal, and Manuel screams. “Goal, I mean that was pretty good. I mean sad, yes but it was pretty good.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “well I’m glad that this is finally over. I would have loved it if, Juana Manny had made a goal. But I’m glad that Geremias, nothing happened with him.”

(Calixto utters, Juana Manny and Orlando. Instead of Octavio.)

Over at the pink house, Dona is being a snoop. She utters, “no photo nor memories nothing. Yes what I suspected is true, she had to kept something. Or else she must have destroyed everything, when she found out about Yolanda Del Cabrales. The soccer game should be half period by now. I still have time.”

Over at the game, Manuel Efe yells out. “4-4 this is quite exciting.” Calixto tells him, “who’s next.” Yolanda doesn’t get a point. Todoelmundo brings out Tere, “now then go ahead.” In the end she wins it for the gang. Everyone yells out, and the guys goes to their girls. Manuel Efe has another tempertantrum. Yolanda complains, “that fat girl wasn’t even playing. Judge do something. Then she smiles and heads straight over to Ruben. Hey Ruben I would have loved, that I had won but.” Ruben utters, “oh what a nightmare you are.” Yolanda glances at Juana Valentina. Then tells Ruben, “a nightmare no. I will take this as my prize.” She grabs Ruben and kisses him, when she stops. She smiles sweetly and returns to her group. Ruben rubs his lips, and watches a very angry Juana Valentina leaving the soccer field. While Manuel Efe grins, and goes over towards him then asks. “Hey are you alright Ruben?”

Dona Dona continues looking around. “Another one that doesn’t keep secrets. Oh it just can’t be, she laughs. I do know, that this poor nun, is probably thinking she’s going crazy. More crazy like a chicken raising ducks.” When Juana Valentina returns home, she breaks down and cries. She hears movement, and looks in the window. Its there she sees Dona Dona, putting money in the small container. She laughs, and then leaves the house. While Juana Valentina hides, on the other side of the house. Then she goes inside the house.

Back on the field, an angry Yolanda gets back her hiccups and fights with Manuel Efe. The band plays, and Calixto tells them. “Attention everyone, lets head to the dolorosa and grab some drinks. Its on me, hey Poncho you open up a tab and I’ll pay you later.” Poncho tells him, “hey with me Don Calixto there’s no problem. Come on lets go.” Calixto asks, “now where is Ruben?” Poncho tells him, “well he was around here someplace.”

Ruben heads back to the pink house. Juana Valentina opens the door, and angrily stares at him. “Congratulations your team won excuse me.” As she’s ready to slam the door in his face he stops her. “Juana Valentina, its necessary that we talk.” Juana Valentina tells him, “what for? Why are you wasting your time, talking too me what for? Hey take advantage, that the lady from sincelejo is here. Oh don’t tell me, you didn’t see her?” Ruben tells her, “listen between me and Yolanda Del Cabrales nothing has happened. I swear too you.” Juana Valentina tells him, “no nothing happened.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey I’m not an idiot I haven’t invented nothing that I didn’t see. Oh yes your the innocent victim. Stop disrespecting me please, plus what’s the point in appolgizing too me. Your future bride Maria Delia, already accepted your applogy. For you told something did happen.” Ruben tells her, “I told her that because I thought. Then she would cancel the engagement. Juana Valentina please, I can’t continue living this way. I do need you, I know that you need me as well. My love lets end this fakeness.” Juana Valentina pushes him out the door. “I’m not your love, I am not. I don’t love you, this isn’t fakeness. I am not in love with you, I live my life in peace now. I don’t want any more problems just leave no more.” Ruben desperately tells her, “fine then lets leave town then.” Juana Valentina asks, “what?” Ruben tells him, “why don’t we leave town just like we were going to do it before. My father doesn’t need me here anymore. Lets leave here, please go very far away. We can live in peace both of us in peace. Where we can love one another, be both tranquil please.” He tries to hug and kiss her, she angrily slaps his face and pushes him out the door. Juana Valentina tells him, “leave me alone you imbecile. Get the hell out of my life, I never ever want to ever see you again. I just don’t want too, I’m serious Ruben. I am not saying goodbye, but see you never. Now get out.” She then tries not to cry, while Ruben sadly goes home.

At the dolorosa, Manuel Efe is once again screaming. “Corozal Corozal Corozal.” Calxito tells her, “shut up for a minute nephew. I want to have a toast, for the best soccer players in the sabanas. For the players salute.” Octavio yells out, “congrautlations to my firecracker.” A very annoyed Juana Manny, yells out. “Let me say for the record, that I wanted to make a lot of goals. But my sisters wouldn’t let me.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh sonny come on you didn’t make any goals. Because your a bad player.” Miguel laughs at her. Juana Calidad tells her, “hey one has to tell the truth always. Father everyone one of them were selfish, I was there waiting. Nobody wanted me to make a goal.” Mauricio utters, “yes that’s true.” Calixto tells them, “the important thing is that they won. Now its history. Juana Bautista sadly looks at all of them, Todoelmundo glances at Tere. Now then Octavio Juana Matilde sing us a song.” Manuel Efe once more yells, “corozal corozal corozal.” Coldy Juana Matilde tells him, “father forgive me but I’m not singing with Octavio.” Octavio tells them, “yes me either I’m not singing with Juana Matilde.” Calixto utters, “what is this?” Miguel tells him, “I don’t think that my girlfriend has to sing with him.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “see I told you Calixto this fight is serious.” Calixto repeats, “now this is a fight against children. This too will pass, its just not important.” Calixto yells out, “where’s the music?” Juana Matilde utters, “fine we will sing. Miguel and I, for we’re the only one’s that can sing.” Octavio utters, “your kicking me out of singing. That’s not going to happen excuse me.” Calixto yells out, “don’t be this way we just want too have a good time.” Juana Manny goes over too her father. “Let me tell you something father, the five of us won’t stand being here in corozal. Since my mother is going to get married. She’s going to be staying here to live. I also will be living here, so tell my sisters that they have too leave.” Calixto tells her, “no this can’t be happening.” Tere sadly closes her eyes and shakes her head. Music plays, Manuel Efe dances with Maria Delia. Tere with Todoelmundo, even though she’s not in the mood. Judge Geremias Guerra dances with Margarita Cruz. Juana Bautista it seems, has made up her mind about something.

Back at the salguero house, a very miserable Ruben returns home. Dona Dona asks, “how are you doing Ruben Calixto?” Ruben tells her, “fine so what did you do during the morning.” Dona Dona tells her, “just enjoying myself here in corozal. There was at last, a nice time to go for a walk. Without having disaster encounters.” Ruben tells her, “mother don’t continue that please.” Dona Dona ask, “so how did the game end?” Ruben asks, “I didn’t think you enjoyed soccer Corozal won.” Dona Dona sarcatically ask, “you should be so very happy.” Then he sadly goes too his room.

Back at the dolorosa, people are now all dancing. While the juanas have stopped, Juana Calidad goes to her father, “see Father this is a serious matter. I want you to talk to them, since your our father. Tell them they must confess themselves.” Calixto asks, “to confess themselves. What are they going to confess?” Juana Calidad tells him, “of every sin they have done father. They have been quite selfish, aggresive and offensive.” Calixto tells her, “those things you talk to them about this.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh father no no they won’t listen too me. Plus I don’t have the energy, to have any conversations with them.” Calixto tells her, “this is a problem…” Juana Matilde interrupts, “father.” Juana Calidad tells him, “we will talk later father.” Juana Matilde tells him, “nothing father I was just thinking. We the harvest business is done with. You know all the payments made, with the loans and stuff. I already know what I want too do.” Calixto asks, “you want to continue you music lessons with that teacher right. To continue with your career right?” Juana Matilde tells him, “umda I complete forgot about that. But yes that as well, father I don’t know but I’m just saying. I should live by myself, listen could you get me my own place. I don’t care if its a tiny area or terrible. I don’t care about that. I just don’t want to live with my sisters. I mean everyone of them, my sisters.” Calixto very shocked utters, “but Juana Matilde.”

Back at the pink house, Juana Valentina is still crying. All she sees is Yolanda in bed, plus the kisses she gives Ruben at the soccer match. The girls arrive home, and none of them are talking to one another. Tere asks, “girl why didn’t you go to the dolorosa to celebrate.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I just didn’t feel like it.” Tere tells her, “well you didn’t miss anything nice my dear. Now why are you like that? For what that woman said?” Juana Valentina tells him, “I’m like this because I’m an idiot. That is why, I shouldn’t care what she says and does that old woman. So where were you all?” Tere tells her, “at the dolorosa.” Juana Valentina tells her, “at least you had an enjoyable moment.” Tere tells her, “nice come on ever since you all got the crazies. Nothing is ever going to be nice again my dear.”

Calixto talks with Ruben, “I now understand your worry. Between the discord of your sisters.” Ruben tells him, “see I told you old man. Its a despearate situation.” Calixto asks, “and tell me what started all of this. Why did they end up this way?” Ruben tells them, “well I don’t know either. I know that nobody is going too give in. To fix all of this.” Calixto asks, “now then what can we do about this?” Ruben tells him, “let them kill themselves for I’m defeated. If we haven’t done nothing with this soccer game. There is no other solutions.” Calixto then finishes his drink.

Over at the judges, Margarita Cruz is putting lotion of Judge’s legs. “Now with this, it won’t be so tender and swollen.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “thank you Margarita.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “the other thing I want to say. Is that you were pretty good out there on the soccer field. I am in fact, very proud of you.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “I felt like I did when I was younger. I must confess, my legs almost didn’t respond when I saw that dame from sincelejo.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “dame your very generous with her.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “I have a bad feeling that even when my godson is married to Maria Delia. She’s not going to leave him alone, this doesn’t stop being a misfortune. For he can’t do anything legal to stop this.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “that is a most astute woman one has to recognize that.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “I’m going to have to look through the legal books. Maybe there’s a new law, that is now called sexual harrasment. Ouch.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “but your pretty swollen and tender. You have too have patience, or else you’ll never leveate yourself.”

Tere is having some tea, and sees a dressed Juana Bautista coming down the stairs. “Can’t sleep Juana Bautista. There’s apple juice, care for some.” Juana Bautista tells her, “no thank you.” Tere tells her, “listen drink a bit this will make you fall asleep like that.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m going out.” Tere asks, “oh my love at this time of the night?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m going out to look for Orlando.” Tere tells her, “I’m scared that your going out at this time. Can’t you wait till tomorrow?” Juana Bautista tells her, “no what I have too tell him can’t wait. See you later.” Tere utters, “dear lord.”

Ruben is ready for bed, and checks the doors one more time. He finds his father sitting in the dark. “Father what are you doing here at this time?” Calixto tells him, “I was thinking.” Ruben tells him, “oh thoughts at this time are worst. For they keep one awake from sleeping old man. Don’t you have to go to the ranch tomorrow?” Calixto tells him, “yes I couldn’t go today because of the soccer game. I can’t fail tomorrow.” Ruben tells him, “well then could you please give a cheque to santiago tomorrow. Its too pay the professors, so they can start teaching the kids.” Calixto tells him, “sure I’ll take it tomorrow. Oh Ruben, you know I didn’t want to meddle into your sisters affairs. But I’m going to talk too them tomorrow. Well then goodnight.”

Juana Bautista is with Orlando at the Dolorosa. Poncho and his father are cleaning up for the night. Orlando tells her, “I knew it today something grave was going to happen.” Juana Bautista tells him, “you must understand my decision Orlando.” Orlando tells him, “I do understand my love. I’m just worried, what’s going to happen with us.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I don’t know.” Orlando asks, “why did this have to happen to us now? When everything was starting to go well. I feel all my hard work, has been for nothing. I was also very happy, that once again I would teach once more my life.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’m not asking you too do so.” Orlando tells her, “Juana Bautista I am here because of you. I will follow you everywhere. What I’ll do is quit the classes, listen I haven’t even started working but. I will quit them, then that will be that.” Juana Bautista tells her, “I’m going to have to tell fortunes on the restaurant roads again. I don’t like it, but its better. Than living with my sisters, and living in that war zone at has become our house.” Poncho tells them, “listen I don’t mean too interrupt. Or too kick you out, but I’ve finished everything I’m more alseep than awake.” Orlando tells him, “listen I was like that before but now I’m more awake. Thank you for giving us some time too talk.” Poncho tells them, “hey fresh no problem.” Juana Bautista tells him, “thank you for everything Poncho. Your a great friend, a happy friend. Willing to do anything to help out. When one needs it the most, I will never forget you bye. Thank you for everything.” Juana Bautista kisses his cheak and takes off. Orlando tells him, “bye and thank you.” Poncho utters, “is this a dream or am I already asleep?”

Back at the pink house, Juana Bautista packs her meager posessions.” She closes her suitcase and waits for morning.

bannerEPISODE 98



Calixto awakens to go too work the next morning. He makes such a fuss, that wakes up Dona Dona. “Mr. Salguero why are you up so blasted early Mr. Salguero. Your not letting anybody sleep.” Calixto tells her, “I have to go to the ranch today today we give out the harvest.” Dona Dona tells her, “fine but at least have some consideration for those that still do sleep. There’s someone at the door, I wonder who it could at this time?” Calixto tells her, “well I don’t know I’m going to go see. Relax and go back to sleep.”

He goes and gets it, its Juana Bautista. “Dear did something bad happen at the pink house?” Juana Bautista tells him, “please forgive me for waking you.” Calixto tells her, “hey I was already awake.” Juana Bautista tells him, “the thing is before I’m leaving I had to say goodbye too you.” Calixto asks, “what are you saying?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I am leaving Corozal.” Calixto asks, “would you care for a coffee?” Juana Bautista tells him, “no thank you father. I just wanted to say my goodbyes.” Calixto asks, “why are you leaving?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I came to this place so I can get too know you. To also get too know my sisters, I have gotten to know you. I am very happy, I leave very happy knowing that I have a good father. I also got to know more, than I wanted too of my sisters.” Calixto tells her, “this is about your fight. Its going to stop, for tonight I was going over to talk to all of you.” Juana Bautista tells her, “its just not that father. Its the conviction that we can’t live together. There exists too much differences between all of us. I don’t want to continue living like being in limbo.” Calixto tells her, “listen Juana Bautista. When people live together, there will always be differences. Their habits that you get used too, and fix themselves up. Your going to have to put that tightly, in your head since your getting married.”

Juana Bautista tells him, “I also know one can’t live life through pink coloured glasses. Plus that there is problems with people who live together. But sometimes these problems have no solutions. This is one of those times.” Calixto asks, “and the telescope?” Juana Bautista tells him, “as I told Ruben over at the pink house. There was a big explosion, I told that too Ruben. I presented it, and participated in it. I guess I won’t be needing that telescope.” Calixto asks, “and where are you going to go?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I will returning where Juana Valentina found me. This closes the circle, this will be a closed chapter of my life. It was very significant, but now in the past. I promise I will write too you often. Thank you and I love you, so very much father goodbye.” Calixto is in shock and gives her a big hug. She then leaves, once she’s gone he starts crying.

Dona Dona comes out and ask, “Mr. Salguero what is going on? Who was it?” Calixto tells her, “today is the first day of the harvest. But I feel, that I’m dying on the inside.” Dona Dona ask, “explain yourself Mr. Salguero. Now is not the time to play divinations.” Calixto wipes the tears from his eyes. “I know that you don’t like too touch this topic but. If I don’t talk to you, if I don’t let this out. Who else am I going to do it with. It was Juana Bautista, she came to say goodbye. She’s leaving corozal.” Dona Dona ask, “Juana Bautista your daughter?” Calixto tells her, “Dona my daughters are fighting between each other. Well it finally got too Juana Bautista, so she has said that she’s leaving.” Dona Dona tells him, “and your just sitting there. Well go and do something, Mr. Salguero.” Calixto asks, “and what else could I do? I can’t force her into staying. Its a decision that she just took. She thinks clearly the things that she does.” Dona Dona very upsets tells him, “but man age has gotten very hard on you. Well if she leaves, its good for me. What’s strange is that you haven’t realized, how serious this is. If one leaves, the rest might all get the same idea. I’ll go see if we can have some breakfast now. Considering your daughter, woke us up so very early.” Calixto utters, “what?”

Calixto wakes Ruben up, “its time too get up.” Ruben asks, “what time is it? Father I’m still pretty sleepy.” Calixto tells him, “I want you to get dress and go over to that pink house. See what occured last night, among your sisters.” Ruben tells him, “I’ll go later alright.” Calixto tells him, “I have to go to the ranch. I need you to go its necessary, go right now.” Ruben tells him, “oh father I’ll go later ok.” Calixto tells him, “Juana Bautista was here. She came by to say goodbye.” Ruben quickly gets up and asks, “what?” Calixto tells him, “listen she’s probably leaving corozal as we speak.”

Over at the pink house, the girls are having breakfast. Tere angrily looks at the girls. “Oh how long are you going to remain like this. You really think, that its delicious living in this form. All of you, hardly looking at each other in the face. Before it was delicious, we made plans we were always doing things. How long will this last?” Juana Valentina tells her, “don’t start.” Tere tells them, “look why don’t one of you make the first move. Then everything will be finished.” Juana Manny tells her, “yes for once I fully agree with Juana Valentina. Tere don’t start with your sermons.” Tere tells her, “fine Juana Manny I will stop with the sermons. But till here I am with you all. You all have been quite boring, its like I’m talking to teenage girls of 15. No all of you are old ladies, you all can vote and work. I’m not going to try to reconcile with any of you. No sir I’m leaving, I’m going to do exactly what Juana Bautista did.” Juana Calidad ask, “and what did Juana Bautista do?” Tere tells them, “you don’t know what occured with Juana Bautista. But you know what, I’m not going to say a single thing. You lot figure that out, you figure what she did.” The girls glance at one another. Juana Valentina is the one that goes to her bedroom. She finds the drawers empty, then she sits down on the bed and cries. Juana Bautista has left one card and its one heart.

Dona Dona is doing her dusting, when Ruben shows up. “Mother I’m going.” Dona Dona tells him, “have a good day at the office.” Ruben tells her, “I’m not heading to the office yet. I’ll do that later.” Dona Dona asks, “what is this all about?” Ruben tells her, “I’m heading to the pink house first.” Dona Dona ask, “do you know what Mr. Salguero is doing in regards to his daughters problems?” Ruben tells her, “that’s why I’m going mother. The old man had to go to the ranch. He asked me to take charge of everything.” Dona Dona tells him, “if they are intelligent they will realize that the fight. Plus what they are doing is an error. Hey one does have to give them all a push. Oh yes for that yes.” Ruben asks, “Juana Bautista left corozal and your worried about this?” Dona Dona tells him, “me of course not. If she leaves or not, for she’s the one that tells fortunes not me. That singer one didn’t show up yesterday.” Ruben tells her, “wednesday I completely forgot to mention to her. That the meeting was yesterday with you. My guess is after the celebration yesterday, she must have forgotten.” Dona Dona tells him, “that doesn’t interest me. Listen she was suppose to see me. Right here with her boyfriend, they can keep their excuses.”

Manuel Efe goes to see Yolanda, she’s in a bad state. “Manuel Efe what are you doing back here?” Manuel Efe tells her, “Yolanda this is the first time I’ve seen you well undressed. I mean disorganized.” Yolanda tells him, “its for my nails.” Manuel Efe asks, “what’s up with your nails?” Yolanda tells him, “they don’t stop growing.” Manuel Efe tells her, “but jolly that’s normal its been proven scientifically. In the human beings they do always grow. That’s why one uses, well nail clippers and scizzors. I highly recommend, a great manicure.” Yolanda tells him, “you just don’t understand. I returned from the soccer match yesterday. I took a shower, I cut my fingernails. That’s when this stuff occured, they began growing like crazy. I’ve filed them, nail clippers, scizzors. I’ve even thought that by putting on gloves. It would stop this, it continues to grow in fact its driving me crazy.” Manuel Efe tells her, “daaa that’s pretty strange Jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “I just don’t know why this bad luck is after me. I have to pay attention to the cows. That don’t give me milk, instead they continue to give me water. I have to pay attention to this blasted hiccups that won’t stop. Now this, my nails man.”

Manuel Efe tells her, “I came to congratulate you on the goals. You made at yesterday’s game.” Yolanda tells him, “I don’t even want to remember that blasted game yesterday. But yes I recall I did some divine goals.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh yes they were quite good. Daaa for one goal, we didn’t win that game anyway. See that game in the end, didn’t get what it was suppose to acheive. They haven’t reconcilled, that was in fact our goal.” Yolanda tells him, “my life I have forgotten every single purpose with the juanas. In fact I don’t want to know nothing about them. Not even about their family. I’m just going to think about, all the problems I do have. Plus I think in fact, that you and I must seperate. We have to say now goodbye.” Manuel Efe tells her, “in any case jolly. When I do finally manage to get the juanas out of corozal. Each of them on their seperate ways, fighting amongst themselves. I’ll come by to celebrate with you. There’s little time for that, so you don’t have too worry. Jolly you were a marvelous accomplice. I can’t stay to help you out, with your nail issue. I invited Maria Delia, to go to the hotel pool today. I have to pick her up at her house.” Yolanda tells him, “it seems you like all of your cousins girls.” Manuel Efe tells her, “no with her I’m working on a different plan than hers. Jolly I really hope, that you fix all your problems.”

Ruben is now at the pink house. Tere teary eyed tells him, “right now she should be arriving back to Carmen de bolivar. She left early this morning, she said goodbye too me. She said she had to stop off to see people. But she was never going to return here. None of her sisters noticed, they were all asleep.” Ruben tells her, “you know I really don’t think they care anymore.” Tere tells him, “listen Ruben I’m tired of this. I just couldn’t do anything more. Not even that soccer game, resulted in anything.” Ruben tells her, “well it was quite difficult too know. How could one fix the bad blood between them all.” Tere tells him, “I’m going to tell Juana Valentina that its best we return to barranquilla. She wanted to leave before the soccer game. We should now, for what else are we going to do here? You tell me.” Ruben tells her, “no Terezalsura you two can’t leave.” Tere tells him, “oh Ruben this girl being here all she has done is suffer. Maybe its for the best, that she forget all these problems. All this business with her sisters.” Ruben asks, “Terezalsura is there another person in Juana Valentina’s life?” Tere asks, “where are you getting this idea?” Ruben tells her, “well it just brings up something that she said.” Tere tells him, “oh yes now I understand why she’s like this Ruben. You know what I think so.” Ruben asks, “a ha and my sisters what?” Tere tells him, “each one of them locked up in their rooms.” Ruben tells her, “it seems there’s nothing more for me to do to fix their problems.” Tere tells him, “nothing except that they repent their repents son.”

Juana Bautista is still in town, she has found Todoelmundo at the hotel. “Todoelmundo I had to say goodbye too you.” Todoelmundo tells her, “but why don’t you just give it a couple of days more? I do know, that these things will work itself out.” Juana Bautista tells him, “no the decision has been made.” Todoelmundo asks, “you don’t care to leave us all. Orlando, your sisters and your father.” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes I’m going to miss them. There’s nothing to say, that will make me repent my decision. I’m never going to forget, that in corozal you exisit. You know what the entire world knows.” She hugs him, and then picks her things. Todoelmundo asks, “how are you leaving?” Juana Bautisa tells her, “in a bus.” Todoelmundo tells her, “girl on a bus are you crazy.” Juana Bautista tells him, “l don’t have a plane like Manuel Efe.” Todoelmundo tells her, “I’ll take you.” Juana Bautista tells him, “no don’t todoelmundo. I hate goodbyes, that’s why I didn’t want Orlando too come with me. He told me, he going to go after me in a couple of days. But it saddens me to say goodbye too him. One doesn’t know, what destiny prepares for one.”

Todoelmundo sees Manuel Efe and Maria Delia and asks. “And why are those two together here? Oh yes that is pretty strange too me.” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen if I don’t say goodbye now. This goodbye will never finish.” Todoelmundo tells her, “I will at least take you to the bus terminal in my motor-scooter. But before I do, please with all certainty Juana Bautista do you have money?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’ll make some money on the way so you don’t have too worry.” Todoelmundo tells her, “wait a minute. He goes to the receptionist. Hey is it possible, I can be get the money I’m owe today? I managed to get the receptionist to give me, the money that I was owed. Here take this, its a loan. When I go by Carmen De Bolivar, you can pay me back.” Juana Bautista with tears in her eyes tell him. “I can’t say no, I haven’t got a cent thank you.” They hug and he takes her suitcase.

Maria Delia tells Manuel Efe. “Listen I want to tell you, since I had such a great time at the soccer game. I’m going to practice it on my free time. It does facinate me, plus see how good I did.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes Maria Delia please. They get splashed by water by a child. Man this isn’t a children’s pool. Daaa yes just look at me. Yes it went quiet well for you Maria Delia. I’m wondering with your time with the juanas. For that soccer game, did you manage to make any progress with the juanas?” Maria Delia tells him, “oh yes I have a wonderful kind relationship with them Manuel Efe. What worries me, is that they have become quite distance.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh don’t you worry about that. They must fix their errors, so their relationship will go smoothly. Soon the fruits of their labor will come out. You’ll see.” Maria Delia asks, “are you sure?” Manuel Efe tells her, “I really think so. I’m great at figuring out the human condition. But there’s still so much that we have too do. So much still too do Maria Delia come on lets go.”

Juana Valentina is in her room, thinking about all the good times they had with one another.



Ruben visits the judge’s house, “I just don’t know what else too do. I’ve thought about what else, I could have done and nothing worked. Margarita, godfather, maybe you can do something.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “I think that Calixto should really have a serious talk with all of them. He’s the highest authority, and they should give him full loyalty and respect.” Ruben tells him, “godfather he said he would talk to them but. We just can’t stand around, hoping and wishing for something too happen. Margarita please, can’t you at least talk to Juana Manny.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “listen you can’t talk to her about that and the pagent. I fully agree with Geremias, have Calixto talk to all of them.” Ruben tells them, “you don’t know how sad it is how a family self-destructs. The worst thing is, is being impotent.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen I understand your feelings godson but.” Ruben tells them, “when they first met it was like water meeting water. Now it seems they are water and oil. I want to know why?”

Miguel is yelling at Juana Matilde in her room. “How could you have forgotten, you didn’t even call her.” Juana Matilde tells him, “I complete forgot Miguel.” Miguel tells her, “to blow off anybody else is fine but this is Dona Dona that were talking about. That is the worst that could have happpened too us.” Juana Matilde tells him, “I know that.” Miguel tells her, “listen you told me you were going to talk to Ruben. Don Calixto even talk to her personally, well to appolgize.” Juana Matilde yells out, “yes yes and you know why. Because of that soccer game, it got erased in my head. I am shocked that your scolding me. Listen its not that serious. You know what Dona Dona wants to talk to us sonny. If she wants to see us, we can arrange another meeting.” Miguel tells her, “I wish I were that fresh like you.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen I don’t want to fight. I’m going to tell you something. I’m going to talk to Ruben, to see if Dona would give us another meeting with her. We will go when ever she wants to receive us alright.” Miguel tells her, “you know something when we marry. I hope that you give me your tranquility.” Juana Matilde tells him, “your an idiot. Umda you know sometimes I’m shocked. I just think some people overexaggerate. Just look at Juana Bautista, hey can you believe this. I know its boring here, Juana Valentina was very tiring what ever. Just because were fighting, she packed her suitcases and left town.” Miguel asks, “she left and where did she go?” Juana Matilde tells him, “well she took off umda Tere mentioned the place but I forgot. The case is she left, Miguel can I confess something.” Miguel tells her, “sure what is it?” Juana Matilde tells him, “well let this be between the two of us alright. Now swear it.” Miguel tells her, “I swear it.” Juana Matilde tells him, “will you keep this for me.” Miguel tells her, “yes.” Juana Matilde tells him, “Juana Bautista well you know that lately was pretty moody. But you know I really do miss her.” Miguel simply gives her a hug.

Over in the other room, Juana Manny is talking with Octavio. “See that Juana Bautista thought she was so very intelligent. She was so very superior than all of us. But there’s a hole where she once was.” Octavio tells her, “Orlando is also prepotent its sad that in the end he’s all by himself. Juana Manny tells him, “yes.” Octavio tells her, “firecracker I came by to tell you I got the loan. Now I can open up my own business.” Juana Manny tells him, “really that’s wonderful my scary frog congratulations.” Juana Manny tells him, “now then I’m going to serious talk with my father. So he can give me the beauty salon. Then the two of us can be properly organized. So will you have a business with carpentry?” Octavio tells her, “no my business is going to be a todoeloritmo.” Juana Manny asks, “wait a minute I’ve never heard such a thing. What’s that?” Octavio tells her, “no one has thought about it before. See I’m going to hire workers for their specific trade. I will pay them for the job, not for what they charge hourly. Listen for example, if a lady calls needed a electrician. Plumber or painter, I will send in the right guy for the job. I will even supervise, and give people my guarantee. That is why its called a todoelritimo, so what do you think?” Juana Manny hits him, “oh only you would have thought about that.” Octavio tells her, “oh your always so sweet.” Then they hug.

Tere is with Juana Valentina in their bedroom. “I knew we should have left Barranquilla when you told me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen Tere I have been thinking.” Tere tells her, “well yes I’ve also been thinking we could re-open the pawn shop. Start all over, we could find a small house or a small apartment. Get back to life, without your mother yes but get back to a normal life.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no I was thinking.” Tere tells her, “yes what were you thinking about. Listen with these girls, well its a very heavy situation. Yes I’ve started caring for them and all but. Yes its sad, were leaving and couldn’t fix our problems. I’ve just had enough, with the fight between you all.” Juana Valentina tells her, “girl you haven’t allowed me too talk.” Tere tells her, “there’s nothing too talk about. What were doing is going to pack.” Juana Valentina tells her, “Tere.” Tere tells her, “listen if Todoelmundo does love me he can follow me. Well way over to Barranquilla, just like Orlando will be doing so with Juana Bautitsta.” Juana Valentina tells her, “you are correct Terezalsura.” Tere tells her, “yes what are we waiting to pack it all up.” Juana Valentina tells her, “bla bla bla you continue to talk not letting me get a word in edge wize. Do me a favor and come here. Come here I must tell you something.” Tere tells her, “now what are you going too tell me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I want too tell you your correct. This fight was stupid you heared me.” Tere asks, “what are you trying too tell me.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well this hurry and trying to keep Ruben out of my head. I think I must have done things, well that bothered my sisters. But those girls, bit by bit took out their nails. Not even knowing why? Well maybe it was all of my fault that this got started. Now that Juana Bautista has left, I have put my feet on the ground at last. I don’t want too lose them.” Tere tells her, “are you trying to tell me you want to fix things with your sisters.”

(Well at least she admited, that she was the one that started that fight.)

Juana Valentina tells her, “hey I’m going to give it a shot.” Tere gives her a big hug and tells her, “at last oh what a great emotion Juana Valentina. We were just wasting our time my love. Oh thank you god, thank you. I always knew that you being the oldest would fix this.” Juana Valentina continues to hug her, and utters. “Alright alright.”

Mauricio is in the kitchen with Juana Calidad. “Listen Cadi my love, everyone was very happy. Seeing that you played soccer so very well. I know full well that you do everything perfectly.” Juana tells him, “yes I do everything well with the help of the lord Mauricio.” Mauricio tells her, “if your sisters were less ambitious. You would have won sooner, and wouldn’t have gotten any penalties.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh Mauricio the situation with every day the situation gets worse. Apparently my sister Juana Bautista, returned to Carmen de Bolivar.” Mauricio tells her, “no that can’t be true Juana Calidad.” Juana Calidad tells him, “I am going to tell you something. Listen we might not be that good, but it saddens me that Juana Bautista has left.” Mauricio tells her, “yes I do understand you. Hey talking about something else, you don’t know what at least occured. Well with Dona Dona and Don Calixto. Did they talk about asking for your hand in marriage?” Juana Calidad tells him, “I don’t know nothing. My father told me that he was going to talk too her. He would advise me later, but as of yet he hasn’t called me.” They hear Juana Valentina yelling. “Juana Manny, Juana Matilde, Juana Calidad please come to the livingroom please.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh saint of the heavens please give me patience. When will Juana Valentina learn, she should stop screaming. Ave maria purisima.” Mauricio takes a sip of his coffee, then goes after Juana Calidad.

Tere tells her, “sin pecado concebido.” Juana Valentina smiling ask, “please from the heavens give us a hand.” Juana Manny asks, “now then what do you want now?” Juana Valentina tells her, “calm down I’m not Robusta Coronado.” Juana Manny tells her, “its your fault that woman gave me such a wallop.” Octavio tells her, “firecracker that woman could have killed you.” Juana Valentina tells her, “well you were avenged. When Juana Calida put that bucket, over Robusta’s head.” Juana Calidad tells them, “no don’t remind me don’t say that it pitties me so.” Juana Matilde tells her, “let me tell you something for the last time. Hey do me a favour, stop organizing. Bossing me around, deciding for us what we do and what we can’t do. I’ve had it up too here girl.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen girl I’m not organizing nothing or ordering anybody around. Who said I was?”

Juana Manny asks, “now then what do you want to tell us then?” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey stop pretending to divinate girl the only one. That did that was Juana Bautista, and she’s gone.” Juana Calidad tells them, “yes let her talk.” Juana Manny tells them, “alright the second bossy has arrived.” Juana Calidad tells her, “and what about you are you a lovely dove.” Tere angrily yells out, “that’s enough girls please. I’m going to tell you one thing, you are all going to hear what Juana Valentina has too say. The one that doesn’t, I’m going to hit you with a broom caramba.” Juana Manny tells her, “great that is all that I needed another mother.” Tere tells her, “hey don’t start with me Juana Manny.” Juana Matilde tells her, “get back here Tere your not getting nothing. Now then girl, just say what you were going too say. But make it quick.” Juana Valentina tells them, “what I have to say I want to just talk to my sisters only.” Juana Calidad tells him, “what ever you have to say you can say it. Well in front of Mauricio.” Juana Manny tells her, “the same goes with my scary frog.” Juana Matilde tells her, “the same goes for Miguel.” Mauricio tells her, “listen love I have to see my father. He’s going to have a very important meeting. A very important meeting, he wants me too be there alright.” Juana Calidad tells him, “alright Mauricio may god be with you.” Mauricio tells her, “I’m always protected in your arms. Because I am in your arms.” Octavio tells them, “well I also have to go to the bank. For an important meeting, to discuss important personal matters.” Juana Manny tells him, “now remember stay focus. You know what’s its like dealing with the banks.” Octavio utters, “alright relax firecracker.” Miguel tells them, “yes I also have too go I have to replace my father at the warehouse. Remember to talk to Ruben.” Juana Matilde asks, “what for? Oh yes now I remember bye.” Juana Matilde utters, “bye Miguel.” Juana Valentina tells the guys, “thanks.” Octavio tells Juana Manny, “no matter how many prayers a politician isn’t saved from hell. Alright firecracker, see you later.” Mauricio sarcastically yells out, “yeah right a painter having business deals with the bank ha ha ha.” In the end they fight to the door.

Juana Manny ask, “well then we are now ready to hear what you have to tell us. Like you ordered us.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I haven’t ordered nothing Juana Manny.” Juana Matilde utters, “it seemed like it.” Tere yells out, “I’m going to get that broom.” Juana Calidad tells them, “please just let her talk.” Juana Valentina asks, “remember when we all met up.” They utter, “yes.” Juana Calidad tells her, “when I was living happily at the convent.” Juana Manny tells her, “aren’t you going to let her talk?” Tere yells out, “I’m going to get that broom continue Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells them, “do you all remember those first days we shared this house.” Juana Matilde asks, “yes we all remember but what does that have to do with what were discussing here?” Juana Valentina tells them, “well we thought it would be strange. Considering each of us were so different from one another. Well we managed to get comfortable or no?” Juana Manny tells her, “because we had too.” Juana Calidad tells her, “I couldn’t return to the convent.” Juana Calidad tells her, “girls it wasn’t for that. No not for that, why don’t we all sit down. Like when Juana Bautista mentioned, in our astrolgy sign orders.” Juana Matilde tells her, “another order.” Juana Valentina utters, “please it won’t do any harm.” Everyone takes their place, complaining but they sit. Juana Manny tells them, “oh yes I’m in my spot now what?” Juana Valentina tells them, “I just wanted to tell you something. We are all distinctive different, but we were united when we went against the town. When you were going to adopt the name salguero. I noticed then, that the blood that unites us girls its big ties.” Juana Bautista is by the door, and tells them. “Those ties are so very big, that I just couldn’t leave to Carmen De Bolivar.” Tere cries, “oh Juana Bautista good that you have returned. Welcome too your home, for this is your home. Your place beautiful.” Juana Valentina is the second to hug and kiss her. Juana Matilde breaks up crying.

Juana Bautista tells them, “the thing with errors one can fix them. Now is the time that we fix this. We were once very united, and we are now all decided.” Juana Valentina tells her, “I fully agree with you. That is exactly what I wanted to tell you all. Girls we have managed to confront all the problems together. All of us five in everything, remember when those women of high society. Wanted to kick us out of town, together we have fulfilled the promise we made to Ruben and Don Calixto. We managed to do the impossible. Maintaining the two houses, amongst this crisis. Together we helped Dona Dona, discover that those fake juanas. Together we have confronted that senora always. For everything it has been us five.” Juana Bautista tells them, “together we have all made lives for ourselves in corozal. We have our friends here, our hopes, our plans for the future here. When I was on route too Carmen del Bolivar I had too return. For that reason, and I just didn’t want to lose my sisters.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes you have every reason in what you all are saying really.” Juana Valentina tells them, “well then I’m going to say my forgiveness. I know that I’ve been going overboard. In wanting to organize and plan. With all of that I’ve been messing in your spaces. I just didn’t realize, one more thing I don’t want to be the queen of the pagent. Sorry I should have said it sooner.” Juana Calidad tells them, “oh dear lord I think it all started because of that blasted pagent. I just don’t want to be queen either.” Juana Manny tells them, “well you all think your far more superior than me. That is what I know.” Juana Valentina ask, “do you really think that? Dear lord, nobody here is superior or inferior than the rest. It can’t be for each of us, are very distinctive than the others. Were all authentic, your different from Juana Calidad. I’m different than Juana Matilde. Its stupid to try to find a comparison. Don’t be an idiot.” Juana Bautista tells her, “your bravery is very admirable.” Juana Manny tells them, “yes brave to receive those hits. Yes that’s all I’m good for.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Juana Manny I’m not talking about your physical strength. But its your frankness, your just not afraid too do so. Act always in your convictions. You do everything to defend them. Girl that is why your so very brave.”

Juana Manny tells her, “thank you Juana Bautista. Why be a queen, when I’m a terrible sister. I don’t want nothing to do with that blasted pagent. Yes and I also ask for your forgiveness, for starting fights with you all.” Juana Calidad utters, “thank you sor Juana Inez de la cruz. Once more I feel the divine presense in our mists.” Juana Matilde tells them, “I was also an idiot. I was just upset because you all were commenting about me. With all the attitudes among you all. What I should have done, is seen my own problems first. I am also appologizing as well. I just want, that blasted pagent to go too hell. Well way over there.” Tere happily tells them, “I can’t believe what I’m seeing and hearing. Yes like you I’m saying, thank you sor juana inez de la cruz.” Juana Calidad tells her, “also saint maria clarice.” Tere repeats, “saint antonia maria clarice.” Juana Bautista tells them, “for me I have a great person lesson.” Juana Manny tells her, “well then its good that your dating a professor. Your back to who you were from the beginning. What is the lesson?” Juana Bautista tells them, “it doesn’t matter what your astrology sign is. We human beings are the same.” Juana Calida tells her, “yes Juana Bautista yes we are. We are all in the image of our lord.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes but some are more beautiful than others.”

Juana Manny teases her as does the other girls. “Hey your talking, your talking.” Juana Bautista tells them, “each of us are ruled by different planets. In the end we all make mistakes. Just like you all, I don’t want to be queen either.” Tere asks, “now then girls what are we going to tell Don Calixto. Now there’s no queen of the harvest.” Juana Matilde tells them, “hey I don’t want nothing to do with that festival.” Tere asks, “then what are we going too do?” Juana Manny tells them, “well I have an idea how about they put Maria Delia. She has been very close to us lately. I’m guessing, she wants to be part of this family so very much.” Tere utters, “could be?” The girls utter, “yes that’s so true.” Juana Calidad tells them, “in passing we are doing a good deed.” Juana Bautisa tells them, “well soon will be the marriage of Ruben and Maria Delia. I know she will be very happy, knowing she can be the queen of the harvest. She can represent the family.” Juana Manny utters, “yes that’s right.” Juana Matilde tells them, “yes I fully agree with Juana Manny and everybody. Plus its a great idea Maria Delia wins the pagent. Well hopefully she can stop talking. Sometimes she does go on and on.” Tere asks, “how about you all get a nice hug.” They all get up, and hug one another. Juana Manny once more appolgizes. “Yes sorry everyone, I acted pretty badly.” Tere utters, “see now your all so very beautiful.”

Over at the salguero house, Calixto tells Ruben. “We have too go to the bank today.” Ruben tells him, “old man its not necessary.” Calixo tells him, “now that we have paid all of our debts. I just want to enjoy the moment, well just enjoy my moment. When the second part of the money arrives, from the harvest. I’m going to help out all of your sisters again. Now regarding that did you go to the pink house?” Ruben tells him, “old man its a lost cause. I couldn’t even talk to them.” Calixto ask, “what about Juana Bautista?” Ruben tells him, “I image that she’s really far away from here.” Calixto tells him, “you were correct I let this conflict get way out of hand with your sisters. I didn’t put so much importance on this. Yes we must do something, like your mother said.” Ruben asks, “did my mother really say that.” Calixto tells him, “yes.”

Ruben tells him, “father its best you don’t have too many illusions. But I really think, that my mother is changing her attitude in respect to my sisters.” Calixto asks Ruben, “hey come over here maybe its best we head over to the pink house now.” Ruben tells him, “no old man I perfer not going it would be just so very sad a panorama.”

Maria Delia arrives at the pink house. “Juana Manny I’m so glad that you answered the door. I must tell you something, that I just learned about your sisters.” Juana Manny tells her, “hey forget about your words because. We’re the one’s that’s going to tell you something. Come in here.” Juana Matilde tells them, “its so delicious that I can tell you now.” Juana Manny tells them, “guess who arrived but Maria Delia.” Juana Bautista tells her, “oh just look its as if destiny brought you over here. For we have to talk too you.” Maria Delia tells them, “yes that is what Juana Manny told me.” They utter, “sit down.” Juana Valentina tells her, “we would like it if you were the queen of the harvest.” Maria Delia asks, “me?” Juana Matilde asks, “yes you hey don’t you like the idea?” Maria Delia excitedly asks, “but why not you all?” Juana Valentina tells her, “we would like you too present the Salguero family. What do you think?” Maria Delia tells them, “oh I can’t believe this. For this just can’t be true, I really did want to be the queen. Well how did you all know?” Juana Bautista tells her, “its destiny.” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes that is how god wanted it.” Juana Bautista tells him, “yes it was destiny and the will of god.” Maria Delia asks, “weren’t you all fighting?” Juana Manny tells her, “oh fighting girl oh not any more. Yes and we don’t want to hear about that never.” Juana Calidad asks, “and how do you like being the queen.” Maria Delia tells them, “very happy I really want to go home to tell my mother. I’ll go and come back later this evening.” Calixto shows up, “good day too you all.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh Don Calixto how are you doing?” Everyone goes to greet him, “I’m a bit worried.” Juana Calidad tells him, “ave purisima.” Maria Delia tells him, “well I just want to say that right now. I am part of the salguero family, I promise I’ll represent it so very well. Bye girls see you later.”

She leaves and Calixto asks, “what was she talking about repesentation? Oh dear Juana Bautista.” Everyone claps and they two hug. Calixto tells her, “here I thought I would have to bring you back from carmen del bolivar. Well just too see you.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well I changed my mind and came back.” Calixto tells her, “oh that’s so very good. Now then since I’m seeing all of you reunited. I want to talk seriously about a topic.” Juana Valentina asks, “what happened?” Calixto tells them, “well you must stop fighting. Your loosing your hands, you have to stop before its too late. Just see Juana Bautista almost left this morning. I do know that siblings and sisters do fight. You must reconcile, the girls start giggling. Hey what’s going on?” Juana Valentina tells him, “Don Calixto you have arrived too late. Way too late to let you now.” Calixto asks, “too late for what?” Juana Manny tells him, “the fight is now in the past.” Calixto tells them, “oh that sure does make me so very happy.” Juana Matilde tells him, “we have made our steps. Definantely now as the saying goes. Nothing has occured.” Calixto tells them, “yes this definantely deserves a rum.” Juana Matilde tells him, “one no but two I’ll make two. One for you, the other for me.” Calixto tells them, “now before that rum I’ll call Ruben too give him the good news.”

Maria Delia is with Manuel Efe at the pool. “I told my mother the good news, and came back here to tell you. I thought that you might be interested. In the end, you have truly helped me.” Manuel Efe tells her, “well congratulations Maria Delia.” Maria Delia tells him, “well its double good image this. Thank you very much. For one part, I’m going to be the queen of the harvest.” Manuel Efe looks at the waiter and utters, “thank you.” Maria Delia tells him, “the second is I have great relations with my sisters-in-law. You have had a lot of things to do with this Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe asks, “now what do I have too do with all of this?” Maria Delia tells him, “regarding the good relations. Well the decision was made by all five of them. If all five of them want me to be the queen. That means the five see me with good eyes.” Manuel Efe asks, “a decision made by all five of them? No that can’t be. They don’t agree on anything now. In fact they hardly talk too one another.” Maria Delia tells him, “Manuel Efe well that was before. For now they are not fighting.” Manuel Efe utters, “what oh dear?” Maria Delia tells him, “well its best this way the atmosphere isn’t that heavy. They are once again the same as before.” Manuel Efe tells her, “no I have to see this with my two eyes.” Maria Delia tells him, “now Manuel Efe your going to help me choose. All the dresses, I’m going to wear for the pagent.” Manuel Efe utters, “daaa.”

Over at the pink house, Calixto leads Ruben into the room. “Let me tell you something Ruben. I want to present too you, your new sisters. Well they are the same as before, well now they are different.” Juana Matilde tells him, “well the thing is we’re not fighting anymore. What you don’t believe us?” Ruben asks, “is that true?” Juana Matilde tells him, “hey and when don’t you believe your great big sister of the soul.” Ruben hugs Juana Matilde, the next is Juana Manny, Juana Calidad, then Juana Bautista. Then Ruben kisses Juana Valentina. She smiles but moves away from him. Ruben tells them, “hey you don’t know the terrible moments I had too go through. I never ever want, to see you all fighting never again.” Calixto tells them, “yes never again.” Juana Calidad tells him, “the lord iluminated us and made us backtrack. In what we were doing. Well what I mean is, it iluminated Juana Valentina and Juana Bautista.” Juana Manny gives him a big hug. “Oh little brother, thank you so very much for what you tried too do for us.” Ruben tells her, “there’s no thanks necessary. For I didn’t get nothing out of this.” Juana Manny asks, “what do you mean?” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen what you told me at the soccer game. Made me re-evaluate the situation. That’s why I got off that bus, and returned here to talk to my sisters.” Juana Matilde tells them, “now no more discussions and no more retrospectives. We’re all going to the dolorosa to celebrate.” Juana Calidad tells him, “I think Mauricio is over there by now.” Ruben and Calixto utters, “yes lets go?” Calixto tells them, “yes go and celebrate but make it better than the party. We had like the end of the soccer match.” Juana Bautista asks, “what your not going to come with us?” Calixto tells them, “no I’m a bit tired.” Juana Matilde asks, “father and what about the rums?” Calixto tells her, “I’ve had a very hard but fruitful day. I’m going home now, to be with Dona at the house.” Juana Matilde tells him, “fine then when I have those rums I’ll be thinking of you.” The girls take off to fix themselves. Ruben yells out, “ok go ahead.” Calixto yells out, “yes make yourselves beautiful. Oh what a great family.” Ruben then hugs his father.

By the time Manuel Efe shows up, the girls are gone. Manuel Efe asks, “now then what’s this I’m hearing that the girls are back together.” Tere tells him, “what’s great is that in this house. Good winds of reconcilations are here.” Manuel Efe utters, “oh yes how good.” Tere tells him, “yes that had too happen son. All the juanas have been so united. Juana Bautista this morning she left.” Manuel Efe utters, “for good?” Tere tells him, “yes that was the idea but she returned.” Manuel Efe utters, “she returned.” Tere tells him, “yes for this is the place that she correspondes in living at. She must always be with her sisters.” Manuel Efe asks, “are you sure this is a reconcilation. I heard people talking, about the juanas and they’re boyfriends. They said that, Juana Calidad was an idiot. Juana Manny was worthless, that Juana Valentina wanted to have everything too herself.” Tere tells him, “Manuel Efe forget that we don’t know where those rumors came from. But they are all lies, well my love that doesn’t matter too me anymore. The important part my love, my juanas. My juanas are united once more.” Manuel Efe utters, “meck it means its good in french.”

Over at the dolorosa a fight is ready to commense. Mauricio tells Octavio, “listen you owe me back my money. Make it quick Mr. Portoreal.” Octavio tells him, “what do you mean?” Mauricio tells him, “yes I paid bills for the job.” Octavio tells him, “hey I did your job. Doing the same specifications that you gave me.” Mauricio tells him, “yes listen you showed up with a bigger banner for your Juana Manny.” Octavio asks, “what it turned out beautiful or no?” Mauricio tells him, “listen you used my money so too me your a theif. So give me back my money quickly. Hey before I sue you.” Octavio tells him, “what now your saying you have invented posters and banners?” Mauricio yells out, “listen don’t be a theif and give me my money.” Octavio tells him, “hey were going to have to bring Todoelmundo here. To see who out of the two of us, invited advertisements.” Miguel tells them, “listen you two you with your signs only made yourself look like fools. For your girlfriends played terribly. Nobody touched Juana Matilde’s ankles.” They both utter, “unbelievable.” Mauricio asks, “and who told you to put yourself at this burial.” Octavio tells him, “yes stop being a frog Mr. Tejeros.” Miguel tells them, “if were going to talk about animals. You have the mouth of a viper.” Octavio tells him, “a viper that’s going to bust up your face.” Poncho angrily gets between the two. He tells them, “listen all of you stop fighting. This has become common place, for you lot to fight here. If you keep this up, go and have it out in the ring once and for all. Plus your all going to be banned from the dolorosa.” Gualberto asks, “does that include me?” Poncho tells him, “no not you Gualberto nor Lasador. Your the only two sane guys here. Well me including.” Octavio tells him, “listen Poncho if you give permission to that politician. Your going to lose a very important client me.” Poncho utters, “really?” Mauricio tells him, “a client that drinks all the booze that I pay for.” Miguel tells him, “what your the only one that can pay for a beer?” Poncho tells them, “listen none of you will have permission to enter?” Gualberto ask, “including me too?” Poncho tells him, “no not you Gualberto. I’m telling you all.”

Juana Manny shows up, “well look who has arrived. Juana Manny Salguero, the best athlete of corozal and its regions. Even some people don’t like it, she shines with her own light. Yes it might hurt Mr. Tejeros and Mauricio Fuentelafria. She’s the future queen of the harvest. Oh my firecracker.” Mauricio tells them, “Juana Calidad Salguero has arrived the most beautiful women of Colombia. Including all over the region. Yes she is beautiful, every single surprise is better than the last. How are you my love? Yes your the best candidate, to become the queen of the harvest.” Miguel yells out, “well Juana Matilde Salguero has arrived. The best singer of the world. The future gloria estefan, and the queen of the harvest.” Orlando asks, “Juana Bautista Salguero what are you doing here?” Juana Bautista tells him, “I couldn’t stop the destiny that has marked for me. Ever since I found out, I had four sisters.” Orlando ask, “tell me love that this isn’t a dream.” Juana Bautista tells him, “I’m staying in Corozal.” Orlando gives her a big hug, “staying in corozal my life.”

Octavio tells her, “now firecracker Juana Manny lets go now for the atmosphere here is quite heavy.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen the people nor the place is heavy. Things have now changed.” Octavio asks, “really what happened?” Ruben tells them, “now then what they want to say is that its now your turn guys.” Mauricio asks, “whose turn of what?” Juana Valentina tells him, “you guys be quiet and listen. I said be quiet caramba.” Ruben tells them, “my sisters and I have been thinking. We realized that all this fighting was stupid. They have fixed things, now its your turn guys.” Mauricio tells him, “listen old man Ruben I can’t forget everything my ex-friends did or said too me.” Juana Calidad tells him, “one must forgive those that have hurt us. Like we have hurt them, Mauricio how can we forgive ourselves. If we can’t forgive the divine.” Octavio tells them, “listen I can forgive but I don’t want too. I got to know these guys from the inside. What I learned isn’t beautiful, and I didn’t like it.” Juana Manny tells him, “scary frog you know what’s beautiful. Beautiful is what we had before, the friendship the joy. Everything that we shared as a group, not this stupid fight we got ourselves into.” Poncho tells her, “yes that’s what I’m talking about.” Miguel tells them, “listen I guess I can forgive what you all did too me. But with Juana Matilde you treated her very badly. She is happiness, fresh and joyful but I can’t forgive that easily.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh Miguel my love you are divine but you have too understand. We talked badly about everyone. We really did say terrible things too all of them. We just can’t lie.”

Orlando tells him, “guys listen I’m sorry I didn’t notice before hand everything that was going on. For that I’m embarssed, and I’m glad you all were able to see. We were all acting like a bunch of kids. This was a fight, that wasn’t logical and had no meaning.” Juana Bautista tells him, “better late than never.” Juana Valentina asks, “and you lot now what?” Ruben tells them, “this fight is now over. Just like this indifference between the couples ok.” Poncho tells them, “your all being given a chance to rectify. You all come to the dolorosa, as the decent people I believe you are. But you don’t want too, now then all of you are now out into the streets.” Gualberto asks, “hey does that include me?” Poncho tells him, “of course not Gualberto.” Juana Valentina tells him, “oh come on Mauricio.” Mauricio tells her, “I don’t know what to say Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells him, “man this is unbelievable and you?” Octavio tells her, “I won’t give in either.” Miguel utters, “me either.” Juana Valentina tells him, “you either unbelieveable. She grabs both guys. All of you get up and shake hands, that’s all you need. Yes that’s better. Hey how about a nice hug.” Juana Matilde tells him, “come on you’ve known one another since you lot were kids.” In the end they hug. Orlando tells Miguel, “listen if you don’t have any problems neither do I. I’m sorry.” The two guys hug as well, then all the guys make up. Poncho yells out, “and here we are witnesses into something I thought it would never happen?” Juana Calidad tells him, “you are being a witness to a miracle.” Gualberto yells out, “so thing are like before right?” Poncho tells him, “yes.” Gualberto yells out, “hey there everything is back to the way things were before. Lasador play it.” The girls hug once more and the party begins. Ruben smiles at everyone.

Back at the pink house, Tere is over joyed and picks up Todoelmundo and twirls him around. Manuel Efe is furious, but just sits there. Todoelmundo asks, “Tere what is going on? Have you gone crazy? Are you mentally unbalanced?” Tere tells him, “yes Todoelmundo what occured is what needed to occur. I had lost all hope man sonny.” Todoelmundo tells her, “no you’ve lost your mind. Oh dear lord Tere calm down.” Tere tells him, “the girls have reconcilled don’t you understand?” Todoelmundo asks, “really are you hearing this Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe utters, “they have reconciled.” Todoelmundo tells her, “now I understand your mental imbalance. Oh this is a blessing Tere.” Manuel Efe sarcastically utters, “yes a joy yes a job.” Todoelmundo asks, “well how did happened?” Tere tells him, “they all talked and reflected. Just like I’ve always said Todoelmundo. One has too learn to have a great dialogue.” Todoelmundo tells them, “oh yes its such a happiness.” Manuel Efe utters, “yes above everything yes.” Todoelmundo tells her, “but its just a shame?” Tere asks, “why what’s wrong?” Todoelmundo tells her, “its not complete.” Tere asks, “but why?” Todoelmundo tells her, “you don’t know how sad I was when Juana Bautista left.” Tere happily tells him, “Todoelmundo she didn’t leave. She regretted it and she returned. She came back, when all of them had gathered together.” Manuel Efe tells him, “she came back at the right time.” Todoelmundo tells them, “that’s double the good news. Where are they all?” Tere tells him, “they left with Don Calixto and Ruben. My guess is that they went, to meet the boys at the dolorosa. They want to celebrate their reconciliation.” Todoelmundo tells them, “yes so that means they must be at the dolorosa right now. Come on lets go.” Manuel Efe utters, “celebrating at the dolorosa.” Todoelmundo ask, “why don’t you come with us now Manuel Efe.” Manuel Efe tells them, “no I’ll see you all later.” Tere tells him, “ok lock the door when you leave.” They take off.

Furious he angrily replies, “yes just like always I lock the door. I bloody always lock the door. Daaa I’m tired, I’m also stuck by myself. But since I’m here, I’ll make a call.

Over at the dolorosa, Poncho serves everyone. “Now then here is another round, the specialty of the house.”Juana Matilde tells him, “bravo Poncho.” Octavio tells them, “listen truthfully this was starting to become really boring. I was missing the politician famous speeches.” Juana Manny tells them, “I was starting to need the spiritual aspects of Juana Caliad. The one that mentions, the saint that has a man’s name.” Juana Calidad tells her, “please forgive her saint astokio bendita.” Juana Valentina tells them, “if it wasn’t for Juana Bautista leaving. We would have continue this stupid fight. Fortunately we are all here. We are not going to allow, absolutely nothing to ruin our great friendship. Plus the love and caring, that we all have for one another or no? I’m going to take charge of that.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes lets all give viva out to the organizational skills of Juana Valentina Echenique.” Juana Valentina tells him, “hey don’t make fun of me Juana Matilde sorry.”

Juana Matilde tells her, “hey one big I’m not making fun Juana Valentina. No no no if you weren’t in charge, nothing would end up working. Well none of us can deny, that without you. We would end up with nothing, your the one that organizes all of us.” They all utter, “yes thats so true.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes your the older sister. Your an aries, the best wait how can I explain things.” Octavio tells them, “how about she’s a rafaga like Judge Geremias Guerra calls her.” Juana Matilde utters, “yes a rafaga.” Ruben simply smiles.

Todoelmundo and Tere show up, “hi gang.” Todoelmundo tells them, “well for me this celebration is like the third crusade of 1192. Salah ad din and Ricardo Corazon De leon. Free access, to the pilgrams going to jerusalem.” Poncho tells them, “oh this man knows a lot and one day he’s going to get a cork in it. Well then how about a song among us all.” Manuel Efe arrives, and yells out. “Manuel Efe Cuadradro has arrived.” Everyone moans, then the song continues. Manuel Efe drags Ruben to the other side. “It seems that all the problems have been fixed with everyone.” Ruben tells him, “yes Manuel Efe and its great that everything has been solved.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes your girlfriend should be here.” Ruben tells him, “but this is a family event. Its an improvised party that’s all.” Manuel Efe tells him, “but not only is she your fiance but she’s also going to be your future wife. She will be a part of your family. In fact she’s going to represent the family, in that harvest festival.” Ruben ask, “what?” Manuel Efe asks, “what you haven’t heard the news. Don’t tell me that you didn’t know?” Ruben tells him, “yes I didn’t know and that’s the truth.” Then he returns to the party, Manuel Efe stares at the tv. “Daaa the hole, nothing of mine works.”

Over at the salguero house, Calixto is doing some paperwork. “So how did it go son?” Ruben tells him, “great the boyfriends that were fighting have reconcilled as well. We stayed celebrating until they were ready to close.” Calixto tells him, “oh man I’m very much relieved about this.” Ruben tells him, “your telling me I was tired of all these problems.” Calixto asks, “but your not very happy about this?” Ruben tells him, “no father I’m just a bit tired. So how is mother doing?” Calixto tells him, “she just went to sleep. You know before going too bed, she mentioned how displeasing behavior of Juana Matilde. That my daughters should be more serious. I didn’t want to ask her nothing. Well so I won’t have to hear her bad comments. Well you know.” Ruben tells him, “oh I should have talked to Miguel and Juana Matilde. The thing is, they had a meeting with my mother. Don’t you worry, I’ll be in charge of that.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes now then tomorrow we have to go to the bank don’t you forget it.” Ruben tells him, “no don’t you worry father. I already have it present, father did you know that Maria Delia will be the harvest queen.” Calixto tells him, “yes your sisters decided that were so. I think its a good idea.” Ruben tells him, “but she’s going to represent the family.” Calixto tells him, “considering she’s going to have your name. She will become a salguero quite soon. So don’t you forget it.”

The girls return home, and Juana Matilde continues drinking. “Oh I don’t know how we could, continue fighting so much. Well we have so much delicious fun, we all love one another. We have a great time.” Juana Valentina tells them, “all of you were a bunch of firecrackers. Yes just like Juana Manny we were.” Juana Valentina tells them, “the roads are clearing up thank you thank you. We are all well, the harvest has turned out quite well. Now what will make me happy, is seeing all of you doing what you just love too do.” Juana Calidad tells her, “listen Juana Valentina we all have plans made for the future. We are all going to get married, what are you going too do?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes that is a great question Juana Calidad.” Juana Bautista tells her, “well for now think you have recuperated four sisters. We juanas are once again juanas.” They all start talking amongst themselves. Tere yells out, “who wants hot chocolate?” They all utter, “me.” The girls go too her, Juana Matilde tells them. “You haven’t tasted anything delicious, than rum with hot chocolate. Wait one minute girls.”

Once she leaves Juana Valentina talks seriously with Juana Bautista. “Oh just look at the collaborations dear me.” Juana Bautista tells her, “listen I’m sorry that all that your missing is happiness.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen its nobody’s fault or no. The problem is Calixto Salguero, who brought me too this life.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh Juana Valentina don’t say that.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen in thinking clearly about this. What if I had met Ruben, knowing we were siblings. Would I have fallen in love with him any way?” Juana Bautista tells him, “you know something I don’t think so. For the blood, would have talked before your heart.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well then the one at fault is the way things were ordered. Well then nothing can be done. Past is the past, my feelings are what they are.” Juana Bautista tells him, “girl try to love another try really hard.” Juana Valentina tells her, “oh man I just don’t like anybody. I don’t know anybody, that I am going to fall in love with. I really do love Ruben, so very much. I also have a lot of rage against him. Well looking and putting himself, well everything else in that Yolanda Del Cabrales woman. Hey don’t laugh, seriously.” Juana Bautista tells her, “let that rage put out that love. Think about that yes.” Juana Valentina tells her, “yes if only I could.” She leaves yelling, “hey put little sugar in mine.”

The phone rings, Juana Valentina yells out. “Hello hello.” Ruben utters, “is me Ruben.” Juana Valentina asks, “and why are you calling?” Ruben tells her, “I’m calling to inform Juana Matilde that she and Miguel. Well since they forgot their last meeting. They have to come by tomorrow, to talk too my mother. That’s all, well I just want to tell you, yes I do love you.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I don’t love you. I want you to marry, Maria Delia Espina very quickly. Plus I want too congratulate you, and wish you lot of happiness. Have lots of children, do you hear me.” Ruben yells out, “fine if you want to see me married blasted it that is what your going too get.” She also slams the phone.

The next morning, Tere is being woken up. “Juana Matilde Juana Matilde get up.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen you’ve been trying to get me up for the past half an hour. I’m shocked Tere, let me sleep. This is like a military regime.” Tere tells her, “listen Miguel is waiting for you downstairs.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen tell him to respect people who are sleeping. Hey tell him, to come back at another time to get me.” Tere tells her, “but he mentioned Dona Dona.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh dear lord Dona Dona we had a meeting with her.”

Juana Valentina tells Juana Manny. “A todoritmo I sure hope that it goes well for him Juana Manny.” Miguel tells her, “well Miguel explained it really well too me. Hey I even told him, that if he puts music into it. He could give me some work as well. We can both make some money, he was so very happy. He talked and talked, he was almost like me.” Juana Manny tells him, “hey don’t make fun of my scary frog.” Miguel tells them, “listen Octavio is my best friend.” Juana Manny asks, “yes he really is your best friend?” Miguel tells him, “yes Octavio and Mauricio. Well in the future, it will include Orlando. Listen were going to be brothers in laws, so why not us be friends as well.” Juana Matilde comes down complaining, “oh Miguel how dare you did what you did. You should have called me earlier, so I would have been ready. Now you have to wait, well till I comb my hair.” Juana Bautista ask, “and where are you going?” Miguel tells them, “we’re going to that meeting with Dona Dona.” Juana Manny tells him, “well good luck you heard me.” Juana Matilde tells them, “listen instead of telling me to calm down. Well tell me what too say, what is she going to ask me? Well I don’t know, what does Dona Dona want too talk about?” Juana Bautista tells them, “she’s going to talk about the future.” Juana Matilde tells him, “the future its like for you a ring on your finger. Me what am I going too tell her? Just see, I stink.” Miguel tells her, “listen we have too go now. We don’t want to be late again to see Dona Dona.” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen man your going to have too stop going very fast.” Miguel tells them, “we’re going bye and calm down.” They take off, the girls utter. “She’s quite nervous.”

Juana Calidad returns happily, “oh the lord has helped us with our reconsiliation. She gets on her knees. Thank you lord, were not worthy of so much love.” Juana Manny burst out laughing, then asks. “Now what is happening too you?” Juana Calidad tells them, “its like the saint fatima we have been chosen. Yes we juanas have been chosen.” Juana Valentina ask, “why have we been chosen you tell me.” Juana Calidad tells them, “we are witnesses to her visits on earth. The miracle is happening right here in our home. One more time, it has occured. The money has mulitplied, there’s more money than I have counted before. Our money has duplicated once more.” Juana Bautista ask, “wait again there must be a metaphysical explanation too this.” Juana Valentina smiles and tells her, “yes there’s an explination. But its not metaphysical, yes there’s an explination.” Juana Calidad tells her, “I get the feeling that you know something that we don’t.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes I also get the feeling.” Juana Manny tells her, ” listen you better tell us or I’m throwing this at you.” Juana Valentina tells them, “careful Juana Manny I’ll tell you.” Juana Bautista asks, “ok come on tell us already.” Juana Valentina tells them, “the explinations is this seriously. It has a proper name.”

Juana Calidad tells her, “its sor juana inez de la cruz.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no of course not.” Juana Bautista tells her, “no girl.” Juana Valentina asks, “any guess its none other than Dona Dona. Sisters, its Dona Dona the senora.” Juana Manny tells her, “what explain I don’t understand nothing.” Juana Valentina tells them, “its Dona Dona that’s been putting in that money in that box of Juana Calidad.” Juana Manny tells her, “oh Juana Valentina stop lying already girl.” Juana Valentina tells them, “no I’m not lying I wouldn’t lie about that. See the day of the soccer game, well I came home early. Remember, well I was arriving on the terrace. I saw her myself in Juana Calidad’s bedroom. She didn’t notice, that I was watching her through the window. I noticed she put the money in Juana Calidad’s container. She took every opportunity, when she knew we weren’t going to be in this house. But it was her.” Juana Calidad asks, “but how did she get in?” Juana Bautista tells her, “remember this house was hers. She must have a duplicate key.” Juana Manny asks, “but that senora doesn’t like us. Why would she want too give us money?” Juana Valentina tells her, “we are just going to have too ask her about this.” Juana Manny gets up, “ok lets go and ask.” Juana Valentina tells her, “listen if she has done this all quiet and secret. She doesn’t want nobody to find out about this. We are going to do our best, to keep her secret. Be quiet and have this shut.” Juana Bautista asks, “how can we its going to kill us this curiousity.”

Calixto and Ruben return home. “Oh mother you should have seen them. Before they hated our guts, but now they were overly smiling and happy at seeing us. You should have seen, how charming and friendly the banker was towards us.” Calixto tells her, “well the truth is all of our debts have been paid off. All of our hard work, has now been put in the past at last. When one doesn’t have money, then one realizes the gravity of why one doesn’t have any money. Well in the end, we thought we were going to need the gold rosario monteseno with a silver cross on it. But thank god, that we didn’t need to pawn it.” Ruben asks, “hey lucky for you mother we didn’t have to pawn it.” Dona Dona tells him, “listen we have too have a better plan. So next time, Mr. Salguero that plague doesn’t happen again.” Calixto tells her, “hey it wasn’t my fault. Next thing your going to tell me, is that I was the one that brought about those bugs.” Dona Dona tells him, “hey you didn’t bring those but the others.” Calixto tells her, “I want to purpose something lets start a new life. Lets be a grand family.” Dona Dona tells him, “your saying this about your grand family. You still have the hope, that I will accept your daughters.” Calixto tells her, “yes I must confess that it wouldn’t be a bad thing.” Dona Dona ask, “why so you can always side with them oh no Mr. Salguero. If they continue fighting, leave me out of this. Out into the distance, where I do like to be.” Ruben tells her, “mother they have reconciled.” Dona Dona smiles, “oh really and why should I care. If they have only reconciled, the four of them. Well one out of them, had the sense of leaving.” Ruben happily tells her, “no she has returned. Well the thing is she decided not to leave. She is at the pink house, with the rest of her sisters. They are united once more like before.” Dona Dona tells them, “hey why are you telling me this news comes and goes. Well then excuse me.”

Over in the sewing room, Juana Matilde tells Miguel. “These dolls are quite strange aren’t they. You don’t think the Dona is a witch? Oh no god better not permit it. Like Juana Calidad always said, please don’t let that happen lord. Umda Miguel, I am quite nervous. Apparently the Dona she asked us here, to talk about the future. What do you think she’s going too tell us?” Miguel tells her, “listen I just hope that were not scolded for not showing up for that last meeting.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh no if she starts scholding us. I’m going to walk out that door. I won’t take anybody scolding us. Oh hello Dona Dona.” Dona Dona asks, “and where do you think your going young lady? We had a meeting, you didn’t show up. Plus today, you didn’t even advise you were coming. I thought you were going to leave me dumped once more.” Miguel tells her, “well the thing is Juana Matilde is a bit flighty and she forgets things.” Dona Dona tells them, “that is no excuse. Everyone is not going to be able to think. That they can grab you by the ears, with the excuse that your flighty.”

Juana Matilde asks, “what do you mean seno?” Dona Dona tells her, “if you fail people they will think your going to do it numerous times. In the end, your not going to be called flighty but a liar. Nobody is going to trust you.” Juana Matilde tells her, “oh no seno lets wait a minute. Well yes that is true, isn’t that right Miguel? Your trying to tell us, the people don’t really know who I am. That they might misunderstand me yes?” Dona Dona tells her, “it seems you do understand me. Well then sit down now.” Juana Matilde tells her, “thank you.” Dona Dona asks, “you were raised by your uncle right?” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes seno you see my mother was as flighty as me. Well I don’t know, but I’m just saying. Guess this, one day she left the house. She completely forgot, to take her daughter which was me. Can you image that? Yes its quite incredible really. Umda I must confess Dona, the world without her hasn’t been easy. Well I don’t know, I just think well sometimes. One needs to hear things, you know the truth well just what you just told me. I don’t like to be scolded, or for that matter but. It was nice and beautiful, that you open my eyes. Well when you realized, that it was closed for so very long. Don’t you think?” Dona Dona tells them, “I asked you both here so we can discuss your futures.”

(Those dolls are creepy.)

Juana Matilde utters, “our futures?” Miguel tells her, “well I’ve begun working non-stop at my father’s warehouse. Soon I will be his associate.” Dona Dona tells him, “well its good that your keeping busy instead of being a vagabond. Now as I recall, you’ve never worked with your father. Well I’ve never seen you attending his warehouse.” Miguel tells her, “well the thing is one does have too think about the future.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes that is correct what Miguel is saying is the truth seno. Sometimes one talks about the future, here and there about the future. But when it finally arrives, one has too do something right now.” Miguel tells her, “well that is what were doing preparing for our wedding.” Dona Dona tells them, “very good so are you going to get married soon?” Juana Matilde tells her, “well seno I don’t know about that seno. Well the thing is, I just don’t know. That is the truth, I just don’t know.” Miguel tells her, “we have talked about that.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes Miguel but we have to tell Dona Dona. That we haven’t spoken about a definite date. Well none of that, that some people talk about. Well I mean, oh what’s the word in conclusion.” Dona Dona tells her, “in concrete.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes that is the right word.” Miguel tells her, “well I have been afraid because every time I mention the word marriage. You mention that I’m cutting off your wings, I’m cutting off your liberty.” Juana Matilde utters, “umbda Miguel.”

Dona Dona tells them, “one really does have too concrete the final decisions. You must make specific plans. Do you love Miguel Tejeros?” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes seno that is true I can’t lie about that.” Dona Dona asks, “and do you love Juana Matilde?” Miguel tells her, “with all of my soul Dona Dona.” Dona Dona tells them, “see the important part is over. Now then lets discuss the details. About this wedding, what are your thoughts. Or what types of hopes and aspirations do have have in this life?” Juana Matilde tells her, “well seno I have always wanted too be just like Gloria Estefan. Gloria Estefan is a famous singer.” Dona Dona tells her, “I know who Gloria Estefan is.” Juana Matilde is thrilled, “you know who Gloria Estefan is?” Dona Dona tells her, “girl one has too be informed about everything.” Juana Matilde tells Miguel, “see did you hear that?” Dona Dona tells her, “although her music isn’t my favorite. But the one about talking, about a good future is a nice song.” Excitedly Juana Matilde jumps up, “oh I know that song I’ll sing it too you right now. She sings and Dona Dona smiles. Oh seno, I’m going to be as big as Gloria Estefan is. I swear it too you, the day I’m in new york. Singing at central park, I’ll send you a great invitation so you can be in that first line of seats. So you can hear singing Juana Matilde Salguero. With a whole lot of people there.” Dona Dona tells her, “don’t forget that invitation.” Juana Matilde ask, “so you liked it. I told you this woman was divine. I thought you were in a different way. I’m going to give you a kiss.” Dona Dona simply accepts it.

At the dolorosa the guys sit together. Mauricio tells Octavio, “listen I want to hire you permanently to do my father’s signs in every window. Who better too do the job, but you Octavio.” Octavio tells him, “hey thanks a lot Fuentelafria for the job. If its for your father, well I’ll start doing it this afternoon. I’ll even charge a percentage off.” Mauricio tells him, “hey that’s great.” Poncho tells him, “great deal.” Mauricio tells him, “alright I’ll inform him of this. Now then my father is also arranging, a committee of some sort. He would like you to discuss, the logical business that is politics.” Poncho asks, “the logic of politics?” Orlando tells him, “I think its quite an important coming from your father. Tell him, he can count on me.” Mauricio tells him, “well I was commenting about you. He was quite surprised.” Orlando tells him, “hey Maudi please thank your father. I don’t know him personally but, if he’s like you. A charismatic, happy and kind fellow. Tell him, I will fully support him.” Mauricio tells him, “coming from a serious fellow like you Orlandito. Its a big flattery.” Orlando shakes his hand and tells him, “hey thanks once again.” Poncho tells them, “hey I don’t know what’s worse. You guys fighting, or this honeymoon phase. With you all shaking hands.” Then they all talk at once.

Judge Geremias Guerra is with Calixto at his house. “Comparde these book well they are quite old. I’m guessing in the stores, you might get a telescope that’s more advanced.” Calixto tells her, “well a daughter of mine is interested in astronomy. Truth is I really don’t know, the difference between the stars. But the length, and diameter one needs for a telescope, I’m guessing its a lot comparde.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “I think its best we visit Jime Corales he’s a specialty of that subject.” Calixto tells him, “oh its been years since I’ve seen Jime.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “oh yes he can advise us.” Calixto tells him, “well yes if he’s an expert he can advise us where one gets one of these.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “listen I’ll go put on my shoes and I’ll join you.” Calixto tells him, “thank you comparde.” Margarita Cruz tells him, “oh Calixto you do surprise one.” Calixto asks, “what do you mean?” Margarita Cruz tells him, “well the mayor doesn’t understand how you managed. To turn the tortea, first all five juanas arrived to say they wanted too represent the family salguero. To be the harvest queen, now Maria Delia shows up telling him that now she’s going to represent the family salguero.” Calixto tells her, “it has something too do with your daughter and the rest of her sisters. I’m not getting involved.” Margarita Cruz asks, “all five resigned and who was chosen but Maria Delia? You and them really do surprise.” Calixto tells her, “the situation is they have stopped fighting. Now they are once again united. Now Margarita, I wanted to ask you for a favour. I’d like you to accompany me, in finding a nice location for the new beauty salon of Juana Manny. I want her to be very comfortable. Hopefully its close too this house, then you all can at least be together. For I image, your still going to be living here right?” Judge Geremias Guerra tells him, “hey comparde I asked Margarita. If she wanted to move houses. One that she has chosen, one that she can decorate. But she insists said she likes this one.” Margarita Cruz tells them, “well here I found the real heat of a home.” Calixto tells her, “yes its true now one arrives and the air is now different. Now is not the house, of a old bachelor.” Judge Geremias Guerra simply laughs.

At the pink house, Juana Valentina asks. “Now then tell us how did things go with Dona Dona?” Miguel tells them, “she was very kind.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes very kind she’s a lot differnent than we thought we thought would be. We thought, we would find a very difficult woman. I have too tell you, she even likes Gloria Estefan. In fact she acted like, well she was like a mother really.” Juana Valentina utters, “I don’t believe it.” Juana Bautisa tells her, “lately Dona Dona’s attitudes have really changed. Why is she so now interested in us? I don’t understand, why would she care so much about our futures.” Juana Calidad tells them, “only god knows. I’m going to tell you something, thanks to all the saints in the heavens. With me and Mauricio, she was also very kind. I thought I would have to hear a horrible scolding. Just like jesus, had to support all those lashes and the crown of thorns.” Juana Valentina gives her a hug and ask, “and what do you talk about with her? Hey tell me, I just want too know.” Juana Manny tells her, “well I think is she wants to see us organized. But its quite strange, all the talk is that we get married and install ourselves right here.” Juana Matilde tells her, “hey that’s true.” Juana Valentina tells her, “hey one minute one minute. You all to install yourself here in corozal? Or maybe you lot get married, and go where ever you want to live in another place.” Juana Calidad tells her, “hey she never mentioned another location.” Juana Manny tells her, “well neither us.” Miguel tells her, “but she did tell us one thing. Listen your next, Dona Dona would like too meet with you tomorrow.” Juana Matilde gives him a hug and tells her, “oh yes its great that Miguel remembered. I had completely forgotten.” Juana Valentina asks, “me why would she want to see me? I don’t have a boyfriend, neither do I have any intentions on getting married.” Juana Matilde tells her, “listen I don’t know but she was quite clear. I want to talk too Juana Valentina. Please let her know.” Juana Valentina glances over at Juana Bautista.

Dona Dona is now in her bedroom playing cards. Dona Dona tells him, “yes nephew I heard.” Manuel Efe tells her, “doesn’t that seem terrible aunt. Dona simply continues playing cards and utters. “Oh there’s nothing more to do in that respect.” Manuel Efe tells her, “remember when I told you the worst that could happen too us. That it would be bad for us, if the juanas reconcilled. Remember I told you that.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes I know Manuel Efe I remember.” Manuel Efe asks, “and what? What are we going too do? Are we going to end up doing nothing? Here we are playing cards, while the juanas continue living here in corozal? Is that what were going too do?” Dona Dona gets up, “listen Manuel Efe. I have a lot of things in my head, to worry about them. Well then did you already talk to Mr. Savareti?” Manuel Efe ask, “aunt don’t change the topic. I need to get rid this thorn of the juanas. Once and for all, lately all the ideas have been coming from me. Me me all by myself me. I am tired, I need your help aunt.” Dona Dona tells him, “listen nephew Ruben Calixto’s wedding is near by. I still don’t have a dress to wear. You pretend that I worry about, plans and stragedies. When there’s so many things left too do.” Manuel Efe asks, “aunt why are you like this?” Dona Dona ask, “what do you mean?” Manuel Efe tells her, “are you forgetting all the humilations that they did too you. That you had too go through. Those juanas, did you forget that Don Calixto presented all five of them as his iligitimate daughters. Him shoving them in your faces, did you forget all that embarssment. All of it aunt?” Dona Dona tells him, “look Manuel Efe we will have time to discuss that ok. Now then nephew, I want you too ask you for a favor. Lend me all those european magazines you have. So I can pick a nice dress, that Mr. Savareti can copy for me. Tell him to come see me soon heard me. Hey Ophelia girl.” Once she’s gone he has a tempertantrum. Manuel Efe angrily utters, “daaa I’m all alone.”

Calixto arrives home with Ruben. “Listen father is it possible you can talk to mother. You see I found Carmichael Fuentelafria, close to his politicial office.” Calixto tells him, “so he and his wife would like to ask for Juana Calidad’s hand in marriage. But they would like to talk to me and your mother. Listen I don’t even know, how to approch this with your mother.” Ruben tells him, “listen father four people are waiting for an answer. Juana Calidad, Mauricio his parents.” Calixto tells him, “yes they have a reason. Hey come over here, could your friend from Medillin do me a favor.” Ruben asks, “sure but what for?” Calixto tells him, “I’ll send him money and the model. For I need him, to buy me a telescope. He buys it for me, and sends it over here.” Ruben tells him, “a telescope sure I’ll tell him.” Maria Delia shows up, “oh Rubensito hello how are you my life? How are you Don Calixto? I came by to show you the dress, I bought for the harvest pagent. Its just divine, you know that I am going to be the queen right?” Ruben tells her, “yes of course.” Calixto tells her, “yes your going to look like a queen with that dress on excuse me.” Ruben utters, “talk too you later old man.” Maria Delia tells him, “sure go ahead. Oh my love, its so beautiful. Now I didn’t have the time to have one made. So I bought this, oh its almost time for the pagent. Do you like it?” Ruben utters, “yes.” Maria Delia tells him, “oh your sisters are so very beautiful Ruben. They do love me, and they have shown it to me as well. Well you know that Juana Valentina, is my best friend. You know something, in fact she asked me to forgive you and take you back. When you had that fling with Yolanda. I really do appreciate it so very much.” Ruben asks, “so she was the one that gave you that advice. Sarcastically he tells her. Oh she’s so very helpful.”

Back at the pink house, Juana Valentina ask Juana Bautista. “So you talked to her about matrimony and the future. Why would that senora want too talk to me about?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I don’t know.” Juana Valentina ask, “unless you don’t think she suspects. Well knows, what almost happened with Ruben and I?” Juana Bautista tells her, “no listen I really think you should be prepared for that.” Juana Valentina tells her, “you know what I don’t think so. But anyways, what if she does ask me that question. What do I tell her?” Juana Bautista tells her, “everything but the truth. Listen that truth wouldn’t help with nothing. Not even then and now girl.” Someone’s at the door, Juana Valentina tells her. “Oh please don’t let it be that annoying Manuel Efe.” Its Ruben who shows up so infuriated, he’s banging on the door. Juana Bautista comes out, “I need to talk to Juana Valentina.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well luckily and with great fortune she’s not here.” Ruben tells her, “fine then I’ll wait. I need too ask her one question.” Juana Bautista tells him, “listen all the questions and answers are over between you two Ruben.” Ruben asks, “why did she even convince Maria Delia to forgive me. For something, I didn’t even do with Yolanda Del Cabrales. When she never forgives nothing.”

Juana Bautista tells him, “don’t continue Ruben. A particular example of your sign is, when you try to stick your foot out you put it even further. Don’t you realize, you are complete relaxed. After your foot is stuck in the mud, no more boy.” Ruben tells her, “if Juana Valentina hadn’t convinced Maria Delia to forgive me. Don’t you see, she would have ended this engagement. Well you tell her, fine I’ll get married. I will never stop loving Juana Valentina. I’m saying it quite clearly, do you understand me.” Juana Bautista tells him. “listen all of us will be relaxed Ruben.” Ruben ask, “one question is there another man that’s in Juana Valentina’s life.” Juana Bautista tells him, “a passionate woman like Juana Valentina. She has to give all the love, that she feels Ruben. If she doesn’t she’s going to explode, like a bomb without escape.” Ruben utters, “with my luck its my cousin Manuel Efe.” Juana Bautisa asks, “why would you say that?” Ruben tells her, “because he’s the only one that can’t deny his facination with her. Well who else, could it be? Juana Valentina in love with my cousin. He’s so tiring, and so bloody annoying. Oh dear lord.” Juana Bautista tells her, “but he is a young man with a lot of qualities. He’s an educated world traveler. Plus he’s very attractive, the important part is he’s not her brother.” Ruben then leaves, Juana Bautista comes back inside. Juana Valentina has heard everything. “You know I don’t know, if I should thank you. Or never talk too you ever again.”

At the salguero house, Dona Dona gets the phone. “Family Salguero Cuadradro, oh hello Geovani. Hey why are you calling here? Yes this is my house but, forget it. What do you need? No I haven’t told him yet. Yes they have finally gathered the harvest. I haven’t had a chance to talk too him. For he has been very busy with the sale. Yes Geovani I know, that this is the only way. You know that your fulfilling the promise, you made to Francisco. Hey don’t you worry, so Genovani how goes the movie? 20 days? Yes I do understand, well good luck goodbye. Man this blasted italian, why didn’t the jungle eat him up in panama.” Calixto comes out of the room. “Dear were you talking too someone?” Dona Dona tells him, “yes a friend of mine that called me.” Calixto asks, “Dona I wanted too talk too you. Its in regards to Juana Calidad.” Dona Dona tells him, “alright I’m listening.” Calixto tells her, “well you know that she and Mauricio Fuentelafria. They have manifested, their wish that they want to get married.” Dona Dona tells him, “yes I know that.” Calixto tells her, “well you also know the Fuentelafria’s. They are very educated, and decent people.” Dona Dona tells him, “you know its a yes.” Calixto tells her, “well the fuentelafria’s would like to come here. To ask for Juana Calidad’s hand in marriage.” Dona Dona tells her, “yes that is very natural. Well what’s so strange?” Calixto tells her, “well they would like to ask for her hand. But they want to come here, to ask.” Dona Dona ask, “here to this house what are your daughters living here?” Calixto tells her, “well Dona of course not but they would like to ask. Well me her hand, with your blessing as well.”

Dona Dona asks, “what so the issue is they would like to pretend that I am here mother. Like me being the mother of one of your daughters.” Calixto tells her, “well the thing is Carmichael and Adela want to talk too you as well. She would feel more comfortable and all.” Dona Dona tells him, “alright ok.” Calixto tells her, “oh Dona you don’t know how much this means too me. How much I want to thank you Dona.” Dona Dona tells him, “hey don’t get ahead of yourself Mr. Salguero. Now since were talking about your daughters. You and I have a conversation waiting.” Calixto asks, “and what about it?” Dona Dona tells him, “we agreed that before the harvest was over. All your daughters were suppose to be. Engaged or almost married, the one that wasn’t had to leave corozal. Do you recal that agreement?” Calixto utters, “yes yes yes unfortunately I do remember.” Dona Dona tells him, “I am ready to forgive.” Calixto happily tells her, “oh Dona Dona your the best woman in the world. I have already told you Dona.” Dona Dona tells him, “hey wait one minute Mr. Salguero. Hey let me finish, I will forgive the one’s that have boyfriends. They have confirmed to me, their formal decisions that they plan to marry. But there’s one that must leave corozal.” Calixto tells her, “yes Juana Valentina.”

Manuel Efe goes to see Yolanda. He finds her wearing a turbin on her head. She’s quite scared and she’s drinking. “Oh man I’m bewitched, the nails that don’t stop growing. These blasted hiccups that don’t stop. My cows are still giving out water, instead of milk. Now I’m bald, I’m basically falling apart. I’m telling you I’m bewitched.” Manuel Efe tells her, “it was the juanas the mothers or no. Remember Juana Bautisa has powers, hey she must have done something daaa. Hey don’t you worry about nothing. I will help you to get your revenge. No you can’t be left like this, you can count on me jolly. I am your unconditional friend, and ally like always.” Yolanda tells him, “you know what I don’t want to know nothing about the juanas. Not even Ruben Calixto, when I seperated from my husband. My life got better, with those juanas and getting too know you my life. My life gets turned backwards. I don’t want to know nothing about you man. Leave me with my misfortune.” Manuel Efe tells her, “oh jolly what a moment oh what a pity. Now what are we going to allow, that the juanas triumph just like that. Seeing that your suffering, and how they humilate me all the time. Are we going to permit it? Jolly come on, please reconsider jolly.” Yolanda tells him, “jolly nothing if you want your revenge on the juanas. Get another alley who ever, I’m a bit nervous. Alley yourself with the proper devil if you want. But leave me in peace.” Manuel Efe tells her, “fine then that is what I’ll do. To finally finish those juanas. I’ll sell my soul to the devil. Yes I will alley myself with him, or whoever. Yes jolly, I am ready hear me I am ready. To sell this pure beautiful international soul, to the devil for your information.” She just looks at him, and continues drinking.


In corozal, a man wearing a white hat arrives in corozal. Poncho sees him, and simply stares at the man.

(This actor also played, a gay textile merchant in YSBLF.)

At the salguero house, Calixto talks with Ruben. “I told her everything that I could think of. That Juana Valentina, is still a young girl. She’s still young beautiful graceful. She has still all her hopes and drives. Before we know it, she would be available soon too marry. But you know how your mother is.” Ruben asks, “so she insisted that she leave.” Calixto tells him, “yes she continues to insist. But luckily she hasn’t wanted the full contract to be fulfilled. Or else all of them would have to leave corozal.” Ruben ask, “why are you making these deals with mother?” Calixto tells him, “well she’s the one that proposed the idea. She didn’t give me any options, no way out.” Ruben tells him, “here I had the hope that she had forgotten. Yes mother would never forget something like this oh no.” Calixto tells him, “I’ve spent the entire night awake Ruben. The only idea I got is that, Juana Valentina goes to live in sincelejo. At least then she’s still very close by. Then you and your sisters, well we could see her when ever we wished. But who’s going to tell her?” Ruben tells him, “but old man Juana Valentina was the first that arrived. She was the one, that decided to look for her father. If it weren’t for her, you would have never met the rest of your daughters. Now what, were going to get rid of her just like that?”

Calixto tells him, “hey I know Ruben. Listen my heart is breaking but, there’s nothing else we could do.” Ruben tells him, “how about we talk again with mother.” Calixto tells him, “listen she threatened me. If I continue insisting with this, she would go back to that original contract. Then all of them would have too leave corozal.” Ruben tells him, “but Juana Valentina doesn’t deserve nothing like this.” Calixto tells him, “the only chance we have is she project her life. Imitating her sisters.” Ruben ask, “what do you mean?” Calixto tells him, “well she finds herself a boyfriend. She then thinks of getting married. Hey come over here Ruben, your closer to your sisters. You don’t know anybody that’s interested in Juana Valentina. But you know that we father’s, are always the last to find out these things.” Ruben tells him, “someone that is interested in Juana Valentina. No father I don’t know anybody who is.” Calixto tells him, “oh your mother is contridictory. For one side, I have my back against the wall. She wants Juana Valentina too leave, but the second is that she has accepted. That the Fuentelafria’s come here, to ask for the hand of Juana Calidad. Plus the hands of the other girls. Man your mother is indecipherable quite frankly.” Ruben asks, “now then father what are you going too do then?” Calixto tells him, “I just don’t know. I have to talk to Juana Valentina, tell her everything. Before she finds out about this anywhere else.”

The man with the white hat, enters the dolorosa. Gualberto and Poncho are having breakfast. Gualberto asks, “who is that man?” Poncho tells him, “I don’t know. I saw him entering the front of the town. He came by foot.” Gualberto utters, “by foot?” Poncho tells him, “yes.” Gualberto tells him, “that’s pretty strange well then how much do I owe you.” Poncho tells him, “hey I’m inviting courtesy of the house.” Gualberto utters, “courtesty of the house?” Then Poncho goes to serve the man with the white hat.

At the pink house, Juana Bautista is talking with Tere. Juana Bautista tells her, “they love one another more than before Tere. You can tell it, everytime they look at one another. Even if they look at one another with ill feeling. I knew when she found him, with Yolanda Del Cabrales it would hurt her feelings. That managed to seperate them, mind and body. But the hearts of Juana Valentina and Ruben. They haven’t moved an inch. You can tell that both of suffering.” Tere tells her, “yes I know that but how Juana Bautista can we help them out.” Juana Bautista tells her, “Ruben thinks that Juana Valentina is thinking about another man.” Tere tells her, “yes I noticed that because he asked me question one time. Truthfully I didn’t deny it.” Juana Bautista tells her, “me neither in fact he thinks its Manuel Efe.” Tere utters, “Manuel Efe?” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes that is what I made him think.” Tere ask, “so did he believe it?” Juana Bautista tells her, “I planted that doubt. Tere I don’t like to see my brother suffering. If Ruben thinks that Juana Valentina, is in love with another man. Maybe then the love will go away. Ruben then marries quite relaxed, and then Juana Valentina and Ruben. In the future, well things might the feelings with the distance. Well could become cold, in the end its best for the two of them Tere.” Tere tells her, “sometimes to fix a pain. Someone has to fix, or give a bigger injection that will hurt even more. Someone’s at the door. I’m coming, I’m coming.”

Its Calixto, “oh hello Terezalsura I’ve just come to see how my daughters are doing?” Tere tells him, “well hello Don Calixto come on in.” Juana Bautista tells him, “well let me tell you. You’ve come at a perfect time, were all in the house.” Calixto tells them, “well then that’s good for outside its an inferno.” Tere tells him, “well if that is the case. I’ll bring you something cold too drink Don Calixto. I’ll be right back.” They both utters, “alright Tere thank you.” Calixto asks, “so how is Orlando doing?” Juana Bautista tells him, “well Orlando is starting his philosophy classes next week. He has already started touring the children. Anyway he’s getting a little bit of money.” Calixto tells him, “oh yes that’s good hopefully things will go well for him.” Juana Bautista tells her, “oh it has too go well for sustaining a house isn’t going to be easy.” Calixto tells her, “well I’m guessing that your referring to the house. That you two will be living in when you get married.” Juana Bautista tells her, “were getting married on the 12th of next month. If that is ok.” Calixto tells her, “yes the date is when ever you all say. Orlando will be asking for your hand formally. For now were just starting our preparations.” Calixto tells him, “oh that’s perfect for that date is perfect. So then Ruben will be able to return in time from his honeymoon. We’re going to give you an unforgetable party.” Juana Bautista tells him, “oh father with that don’t you worry. We were just thinking, of a nice dinner with you and our friends. Were heading to the serra nevada for our honeymoon.” Calixto asks, “so nothing else?” Juana Bautista tells him, “no we don’t care for a party. Or none of that business.” Calixto tells her, “well what ever you say. Now then if you change your mind just advise me alright.” Juana Bautista tells him, “thank you.” Tere returns, “now then here’s the drinks to cool you from that inferno Don Calixto.”

The man with the white hat, continues to go around town. Octavio asks, “what he didn’t say who he was. Or where he was coming from?” Poncho tells him, “not even for water. Well I mean he simply asked for water, he drank then took off.” Octavio tells him, “you know something this is quite strange Poncho. Its so hot in here, he’s not even sweating.” Poncho tells him, “well that is what I’ve been saying. Oh man he has to swear something. A young woman walks by, Poncho yells out. Oh my god wednesday, hey looks who’s coming by. Hey beautiful odela my life your looking so fine. How have you been? Oh your always so beautiful, but man your really fine today. Hey do me a favor, take care of yourself.” Octavio asks, “hey wait a minute Poncho you flirting with a young girl? But everyone knows you like older women.” Poncho simply stares at him dumbstuck.

Over at the pink house, Calixto talks with Juana Calidad. “Hello dear I have some good news to inform you about. Dona Dona has agreed, to meet the Fuentelafria’s over at our house. So they can ask for your hand in marriage, from me and from her.” Juana Calidad tells him, “oh how delicious in heaven father. Mauricio is going to be overjoyed when I tell him. Please tell Dona Dona, thank you from my part.” Calixto tells her, “yes I will tell her that. Now then once again Juana Manny, would like her beauty salon once more.Juana Bautista wants a telescope, so she can paint the skies and astological signs. How about you, would you like your economic store back?” Juana Calidad tells him, “well father I really don’t know what too say. Yes I was very happy, with the economic store. People were starting to frequent it and all but. I just don’t know, if I want to start again. It just brings he bad memories father. It reminds me, when we had to beg the butcher and the milk man for food.” Calixto tells her, “listen this is what I’m going to ask. You think about this, and tell me later. If you don’t want the economic store but something else. Just advise me ok.” Juana Calidad hugs him and tells him, “thank you father.”

In Juana Manny’s room, she’s trying on outfits. “May I come in?” Juana Manny tells him, “come on in oh father good that you have come by. I was going to see you at your office later. Now then Octavio has organized the dinner for tomorrow. We discuss this with my mother, and she fully agrees with everything.” Calixto tells her, “alright tomorrow I’ll head to the ranch early. So then I can join you in time.” Juana Manny tells him, “oh father let me tell you something. I’m very nervous, its like I’m meeting once again in the ring with Rubusta Coronado.” Calixto tells her, “hey don’t even think about that. I thought she was going to end up putting you in the hospital.” Juana Manny tells him, “listen if I’m like this what about what my scary frog is feeling.” Calixto looks at her clothes on the bed and asks, “so is this for tomorrow?” Juana Manny tells him, “yes but really it doesn’t convince me.” Calixto tells her, “listen go to the store of Rosa Maria and tell her that you can get anything you want. She can just charge it too my account alright.” Juana Manny ask, “really father thank you.” Calixto tells her, “listen no daughter of mine. Won’t have nice clothes for an occasion such as this.” Juana Manny tells him, “oh thank you again.” Calixto tells her, “oh I just wanted to tell you something. All that equipment at the salon is enough, or do you need something else?” Juana Manny tells him, “well I don’t need anything else. Although I have to see that location. I just want a big sign that says. Hair cuts for women and men. I want it named like before salguero.” Calixto smiles but then tells her, “how about you call it something else. Something more commercial, happy, and joyful and corozal like? Yes follow my suggestion, and change the name. I don’t know nothing about beauty salons. But only the old devil knows, more than an old man. Than a devil.”

Tere is with Todoelmundo on the terrace. “You know something, I would just love it. If all four of my girls, would get married on the same day. At the same time, arriving in that church all together.” Todoelmundo tells her, “multiple weddings?” Todoelmundo smiles and gets ready to tell her some facts he knows. “Well there are multiple stories of people getting married some examples are.” The man in the white hat goes by, and Todoelmundo’s mind goes blank. Tere waits and wait, “hey what’s going on?” Scared Todoelmundo tells her, “I don’t know a single multiple one.”

Calixto goes to see Juana Matilde. When he enters her messy room, he starts picking up her belongings. “So tell me, how was your talk with Dona go?” Juana Matilde tells him, “I think it went quite well father. The truth is she’s very sympatica, when she wants too be. Or don’t you think so? She was very nice towards me and Miguel. At first I didn’t know how, you could have fallen in love with a woman such as that. Oh father just leave those there. Now sit down there, just like what I was saying. Sometimes she’s really disagreeable but. Well now I do understand, why you married Dona Dona. She’s quite beautiful on the inside.” Calixto asks, “so I’m guessing she asked about your future.” Juana Matilde tells him, “yes of course.” Calixto asks, “so what did you tell her?” Juana Matilde tells him, “nothing but Miguel and I are going too get married.” Calixto asks, “and when?” Juana Matilde tells him, “I don’t know that father. One of these days, oh yeah did you know father. Did you know who likes Gloria Estefan?” Calixto asks, “who Miguel?” Juana Matilde tells him, “no father Dona Dona she doesn’t like all the songs but just a few that are her favorites.” Calixto tells her, “Dona likes wait a minute. At this date and age, I’m learning new things about my wife. From my own daughters, hey I wasn’t waiting for this.” Juana Matilde tells him, “can you just image it. But she was so very beautiful towards Miguel and me plus. I even promised her, that when I perform in central park she was going to be invited. Can you image it if I had my guitar here, I would have sung every one of her favorite songs. Well some of course from gloria estefan.”

Calixto asks, “so what happened with your guitar?” Sadly Juana Matilde tells him, “I had too pawn it father umda I don’t even remember the day that I did it. Well I pawned it because…” Calixto tells her, “yes I know.” Juana Matilde tells him, “the truth is I completely forgot why I pawned it. Anway I tried to get it, but I couldn’t rescue it.” Calixto tells her, “hey don’t you worry about that I’ll fix that.” Juana Matilde tells him, “thank you.” Calixto asks, “daughter I hope that you regret what you told me. About not living with your sisters.” Juana Matilde tells him, “oh father I know how worried you were about us. Umda the thing is on the day, I was like bored. Well you know I was fighting with my sisters. Don’t you worry that has alredy passed.” Calixto asks, “now then the music what?” Juana Matilde tells him, “listen I want to continue with my music classes. Hey father with one condition, I want the same music teacher.” Calixto tells her, “the same one but you said you didn’t like him.” Juana Matilde tells him, “even though I didn’t like him. He’s a bit annoying, but I feel I have too learn everything that I need too know about music. To become the very best and very famous.” Calixto tells her, “alright I’ll contract the professor and see if he can teach you once again.” Juana Matilde kisses him, “oh father your such a beautiful man.”

Calixto then visits with Juana Valentina. “May I come in?” Juana Valentina tells him, “but of course please do come in. So how are you doing?” Calixto tells her, “I’m so glad this house is once again like it was before. It makes me so very happy.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes and I don’t know why we were fighting for so very long. We were all idiots, I’m so embrassed with my own behavior. It gives me great pity.” Calixto tells her, “will its natural with all human beings. That one does things sometimes, that are against our better judgements. At least you were able to do pull back, and do something about this.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes that is true. But really we were getting out of hand. We were fighting for several days, fighing over absurd things.” Calixto tells her, “well I realized I had committed a more severe and grave error. You all had to spend many years, well it took a lighting stuck to make me come too my senses. As the saying goes, better late than ever eh?” Juana Valentina tells him, “when I left Barranquilla. I was just going to find my father, then return. Never would I have imaged, that I would have done half of everything that has happened.” Calixto tells her, “well the bad moments are all in the past. I would have loved it, if I could have lesson the blow with all these problems. The thing is I just couldn’t, fortunate these crisis. Were able to overcome, thanks too you all. Now then that there’s better days. I want too fulfill my word, tell me something really what have you thought about your future?” Juana Valentina tells him, “for now my only worry is making sure that my sisters are properly organized in their lives.”

Calixto asks, “but they are all getting ready to get married.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes I know that.” Calixto asks, “and how about you? Isn’t there a person, that you feel great being with?” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes being with you. When I’m with my sisters, and Terezalsura.” Calixto tells her, “I mean sentimental feelings?” Juana Valentina tells him, “Dona Calixto I am how I am just like this.” Calixto asks, “but isn’t there a boy that you like. That you are attracted too, or something like that?” Juana Valentina tells him, “you are referring I mean someone I wish too marry?” Calixto tells her, “yes you have understood me exactly my question.” Juana Valentina sadly tells him, “no.” Calixto tells her, “oh yes I do understand you? Now then I must talk to you, about something. Its very delicate, and I hope that you do understand me.” Juana Valentina asks, “what is it?” Calixto tells her, “well the thing is… I want you to have the name Salguero.” Juana Valentina tells him, “Don Calixto that is impossible. Impossible, never in my life will I become a Salguero.” Calixto asks, “why impossible?” Juana Valentina tells him, “well I want to continue respecting my late father’s memory. The man who raised me, that’s why.” Calixto tells her, “yes I fully understand that.” Juana Valentina ask, “listen Don Calixto I need to ask you a question? Dona Dona talked to my sisters, plus their boyfriends. Do you know why, Dona Dona wants to talk to me as well?” Calixto tells her, “Dona has been asking about their futures. I image with you, it will be the same.” Then they get interrupted, Tere screams. “Juana Valentina hurry girls hurry come down right now.” Juana Valentina utters, “wednesday I wonder what’s happening now? Excuse me Don Calixto, we will continue talking. I’m coming.” She leaves the room, and Calixto utters. “She has to know, she has to leave corozal. Man I just can’t tell her, that she has to leave corozal. I can’t do it, and that’s final”

Ruben goes to the hotel, to talk to Manuel Efe. “Now then as you know, all of my sisters are planning to get married soon. Juana Valentina hasn’t say nothing, well I need to know. I mean about you and her, how is your relationship?” Manuel Efe ask, “wait Rubencho my relationship with Juana Valentina has indeed changed.” Ruben asks, “changed how? Manuel Efe tells him “well she is more cordial with me. You can tell, for she now is enjoying my presence. She of course enjoys being with me.” Ruben asks, “they aren’t just your impressions cousin?” Manuel Efe tells him, “no Rubencho. You know with those things, I never lie never. Listen I’m going to tell you something only you alone. Juana Valentina has begun flirting with me. She has started saying sweet things too me. So I can notice, that yes she does like me.” Ruben asks, “seriously?” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes yes very seriously. Plus I’ve thought again, that I should once again try to propose. That she become my formal girlfriend once again. I do want to give her some time, I don’t want too pressure things. Well like the last time. Well you know why Rubencho. Well as a man, one has to make one more desireable to women. I’ve telling you, considering I am a well travelled man. I’ve gone from one side to the other. I’ve known various women, I am one of the few people that knows the true condition of the women of excellence. Well in any case, my steps with Juana Valentina are going quite well. We are progressing, we haven’t touched the word engagement. We have touched roses, but sooner or later well were going to have to discuss the topic.”

Ruben tells him, “wait a minute cousin your talking twisted. I’m refering too, having to talk about engagements and in the end marriage.” Manuel Efe tells him, “Rubencho you should be thinking about your wedding. In fact its basically around the corner. Juana Valentina and I, well were adults. We will be in charge, of figuring out our future situation. Leave it up to us Ruben” The man in the white hat is there, he talks to the waiter. The waiter goes over to the two, “excuse me Mr. Cuadradro that man there is looking for you.” Manuel Efe tells him, “well for me I’ve never met that man in my entire life. Listen tell me, I’ll attend to him in a minute daaa. Now Rubencho lets discuss something else. Let me tell you, well I just don’t understand you. Why did you really come here? To talk to me, about my relationship with Juana Valentina. Is that why you really came here Rubencho? Is that why, you came right here? To my hotel, daaa let me tell you somethng. In fact you sounds instead of a brother, but like a jealous suitor.” Ruben tells him, “yes I do love Juana Valentina. I mean I love Juana Valentina, just like I love the rest of my sisters. Its logical, that I worry about every one of their futures. Listen Manuel Efe you talk to the man, I have lots more work to do.” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes perfect Rubencho.” Ruben utters, “bye cousin.”

Mauricio sees him and tells him. “Oh Ruben did you hear the bad news?’ Ruben asks, “what news?” Mauricio tells him, “apparently today here at the hotel. There’s was a political lunch, my father has told everyone. That he has decided to stop campaigning, to be the future governer of department of sucre.” Ruben tells him, “but your father has been trying for years trying to be a governer. Everyone was sure, this time he was going to win it.” Mauricio tells him, “I know that but I’m telling you word by word what he said. I am cancelling my campaign, and putting all my support against what’s his name. The other candidate, from the other party.” Ruben tells him, “that simply can’t be.” Mauricio tells him, “it is Ruben. You know what I think, my father has gone crazy. Or else, the devil has a hand in this.” Ruben simply stares at him.

Both Juana Valentina and Juana Calidad are both upset. Juana Matilde tells her, “I don’t know but I’m saying is. Juana Valentina you can’t leave. I think that the song I sang, well the Italian liked it. There’s going to be another song, that the Italian guy might like as well.” Juana Manny tells her, “plus its still raining Juana Valentina.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes that’s true.” Juana Calidad in tears tells her, “Juana Valentina if you go I’m going with you.” Juana Bautista asks, “what bad thing happened that you don’t want to stay here with your sisters.” Juana Valentina tells her, “nothing has happened.” Tere asks Todoelmundo, “Todelmundo I’m really worried what happened? You were going to take Ruben to the pink house. To go see the Italian guy, that’s doing the movie. But the Italian guy was already here. Then pow Juana Valentina escapes from me. Then the three of you show up. Hey what’s going on, what happened? Tell me at least something man.” Todoelmundo tells her, “oh man Terezalsura look what occurred is what shouldn’t have occured.”

In the bathroom, Ruben talks with Manuel Efe. “Yolanda Del Cabrales? Ruben that woman is in sincelejo.” Ruben tells him, “she didn’t it was a trap. I’m thinking your behind all of this.” Manuel Efe tells him, “that’s just incredible your talking too your cousin. I am your family, how could you think that way about me.” Ruben tells him, “your the one that told me that the Italian guy wanted to talk to me. Yes or no?” Manuel Efe tells him, “yes the Italian guy had a meeting with you.” Ruben tells him, “you told me that the Italian guy was waiting for me at 7 pm.” Manuel Efe repeats, “yes the Italian told me he was going to be waiting for you there at 7 pm.” Ruben tells him, “well I arrive and he wasn’t there. So what happened?” Manuel Efe tells him, “what happened was this. He called me from the pink house. He told me he was tired of all this rain. He asked me to go pick him up, and pick up his friend as well. Well that is what I did, that was that.” Ruben asks, “and why didn’t you call me then?” Manuel Efe tells him, “I called but I found out you weren’t there. I just figured if you arrived there, well at the pink house. Then you would have found out, that nobody was there then you would have head straight to the dolorosa. Well that is what I was thinking. Let me tell you, in fact I put a piece of paper on the door.” Ruben tells him, “the door was almost open. There was no piece of paper on it.” Manuel Efe tells him, “let me think oh I know what must have happened. I remember now, it was raining pretty bad. So I went out first, towards my European car. Then the Italian fellow, that’s why the door was a bit ajar. That is what I’m guessing happened.”

Ruben tells him, “listen Manuel Efe but the thing is this. Yolanda Del Cabrales was waiting for me inside.” Manuel Efe tells him, “Rubencho that can’t be everyone knows that she left to go back to sincelejo.” Ruben tells him, “no she was there She wasn’t even surprised to see me.” Manuel Efe tells him, “let me think. Yolanda Del Cabrales was inside the pink house. The Italian guy asked you for a meeting at seven at night.” I know what happened, Yolanda and the Italian fellow are in cahoots. That is what happened? Well its not strange either, you know the Italians just love romantic stories.” Poncho arrives, “hey congratulations your sister sang great tonight. Everyone was pretty happy.” Ruben tells him, “that’s great.” Manuel Efe tells him, “listen I’m going to talk to Geovani. I’ll see what’s behind all of this. Alright confide in me, I’m your cousin remember that.” He takes off, Poncho tells Ruben. “Oh yes the Italian guy liked it. He was really emotional.” Ruben washes his hands, and Franco arrives. He gets a stall and Poncho utters. “Occupied.” Franco utters, “excuse me. He turns and sees Ruben. Oh hello your the splitting image of Francisco Guadeske. Hello I knew your father, oh he’s in the heavens now.” Ruben tells him, “excuse me but I can’t speak Italian excuse me.” Franco tells him, “you look exactly like Francisco when he was younger. Are you his son? Oh dear your real, and its a miracle. He kisses Ruben, and utters. I just can’t believe it, its a miracle.” Ruben utters, “I don’t understand you.” Franco utters, “oh no I must talk too to Geovani.” He takes off, Poncho asks. “Hey friend you don’t think, that guy is gay or what?”

Manuel Efe finishes his drink, and leaves. The gang are listening too Geovani talking. “Now when I’m Rome, and not filming a picture. I usually promote new singers.” Miguel tells him, “well Juana Matilde is just starting out would you mind helping her out a bit.” Octavio tells him, “yes help promote her become her representative.” Geovani tells them, “well the thing is I’m her to do a movie which of course. The universe will help me do it, this girl sings very beautifully.” Juana Bautisa tells him, “oh yes marvelous yes. In my city, its very difficult to represent people.” Juana Valentina ask, “but Geovani you don’t know anybody here in Colombia. A friend here, that also a representative.” Geovani tells her, “listen here I can’t say for I don’t have the fax and telephone number. Ruben leaves the bathroom and sees Franco, and decides too takes off. Geovani tells the girls, now we have a problem. There’s no lights, no big show, no background singers. No chorus, no choreographer.” Juana Valentina tells him, “well we can get all of that.” Everyone full agrees, Geovani tells them. “That is going to take a lot of money. Lots of money, you have too buy the lights. Costumes, visuals, pay the musicians. This will cost a lot of money.”

Juana Calidad sadly tells them, “well then this ends the concert idea. Its best we just go home now.” They grab her, “hey wait a minute.” Juana Valentina tells him, “Geovani we don’t have the money but you do.” Geovani utters, “me no.” Juana Valentina tells him, “yes and you could become her representation. So you can talk to them for us.” Everyone then continues to talk. Geovani has enough talk, and goes to his friend Franco. Franco tells him, “I just the guy that looks exactly like Francisco Guadeske.” Geovani tells him, “listen your just imaging things.” Franco tells him, “yes I saw him he looked exactly like Francisco. He just left here, I swear too you.” Juana Manny asks, “and what is he saying?” Geovani lies, “he just saying corozal is very beautiful. But it rains a lot.” Mauricio tells him, “yes Mr. Loteto it’s normal that it rain but not this much. Isn’t that right guys?” They utter, “yes yes.” Franco tells him, “I even spoke too him.” Geovani tells him, “yes but he doesn’t speak Italian.” Juana Valentina tells him, “now can we return to talking about the business.” Geovani tells them, “no we must be going now. I’ll think about your business proposition. We will talk later.” Juana Matilde asks, “when are we going to talk again?” Geovani tells her, “later on for the movie is first.” Then they take off, Juana Matilde is very heart broken.

Manuel Efe heads straight to see Yolanda. Who has showered and changed. “Its forty meters from here to my car. I didn’t care to walk the forty meters and get wet. I needed to know what happened? Well what happened?” Yolanda tells him, “Ruben Calixto came here my life.” Manuel Efe tells her, “yes I know that Ruben told me at the dolorosa. But what exactly happened?” Yolanda smiles and tells him, “what happened is what needed to happen.” Manuel Efe smiles and asks, “so at last you managed to get him daaa.” Yolanda tells him, “oh yes you should have seen it. He and I alone here, he couldn’t stand it and he went on top of me. Plus to sweeten the moment, who happens to show up is. While we were starting up, well none other than Juana Valentina.” Manuel Efe asks, “wait Juana Valentina shows up when you two were?” Yolanda tells him, “yes in the middle of everything. But that’s strange, for Juana Valentina arriving wasn’t in our plans.”

Back at the salguero’s the girls have arrived home. Changed and gone too bed, Juana Valentina is in bed and tells Juana Bautista everything that occurred. “There was this doubt inside of me, it was if it had control over me. I needed to see for myself, so I went to the pink house.” Juana Bautista ask, “where did that doubt come from?” Juana Valentina tells her, “apparently Todoelmundo told Tere that he had an appointment with the Italian guy. But the Italian guy was at the dolorosa. Well what then, anybody would have doubted it?” Juana Bautista asks, “then what happened?” Juana Valentina tells her, “I went walking there. It was there that I saw todoelmundo standing by the door. Todoelmundo told me, that yes Ruben was inside talking with the Italian guy. I knew that was a lie. I became really desperate Juana Bautista. I became very enraged, I kept on hitting the door. I wanted him to open the door.” Juana Bautista tells her, “you are crazy Juana Valentina.” Juana Valentina tells her, “when he did he was with Yolanda Del Cabrales. His face was covered with lipstick. His shirt was open and wrinkled. She was in the bed, its over over over. Oh no its now over, I don’t care if he says he’s like his father his flesh is weak. Oh no, I’m never going to forgive Ruben Calixto never for this.”

Calixto once again is next to Dona, in the sewing room. He gets up, and looks at his watch. “Six thirty am and this rain doesn’t let up. Not even the roosters sing, I have to head to the ranch early. This rain is starting to worry me. It could damage the crops.” Dona Dona in her head utters, “oh I forgot all about the crops.” Calixto tells her, “you can’t image Dona having to go through again with that ruin. I wouldn’t be able to support it. Look Dona I’m going to get a coffee, and your going too drink it. If you don’t drink it, I’ll ask the doctor to put swedo on you. I still don’t understand what your attitude is, but your not going to die of hunger.” Dona Dona in her head utters, “well if the crops recuperated before it will again. My intense desire is that it continues to rain.”

Judge Geremias Guerra tells Margarita Cruz. “Listen this all is pure coincidence. You mention to her about your high school friend. Everyone can see this. Then the next day, Dona turns up like her. Soon she’s going to turn into a statue. Just for being stubborn.” Margarita Cruz tells her, “I just think she wanted to make a point. That if one desires something so very bad, that it could happen.” Judge Geremias Guerra tells her, “well I’m not going to believe that. Unless her intense desire is this rain never too stop. I’ve never seen it rain so very much. They should hire Dona, to work for the agriculture department. To help with various droughts that’s going on in the region.” Margarita Cruz laughs, ” oh judge please you said that like you were so serious. Oh I didn’t know you had a sense of humor.”

Juana Matilde asks, “Juana Calidad can you image if I became famous. Well coming up is my first concert. Its just that, well later on is the tour. The tv appearances, the press, the magazines. A whole bunch of things. I’m guessing that is how Gloria Estefan started. What do you think?” Juana Calidad asks, “who started like that?” Juana Matilde tells her, “wait nun you have never heard of Gloria Estefan?” Juana Calidad tells her, “no not a clue?” Juana Calidad tells her, “its incredible this is incredible. How can you go around in life, without knowing who is Gloria Estefan.” Juana Calidad asks, “well then do you know who Francisco De sales.” Juana Matilde asks, “who?” Juana Calidad repeats, “Francis De Sales.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well no I’m guessing its a religious saint of some sort.” Juana Calidad tells her, “good perfect then now were equal for I don’t know who Gloria Estefan is. Nor do you know who Franciso De sales is.” Juana Matilde asks, “oh Juana Calidad do you think that Miguel will join me on the tour?” Juana Calidad tells her, “yes only if your married for your not going all over the world. With a man, without being married too him. So will you marry Miguel?” Juana Matilde tells her, “with Miguel you know I don’t know. I think so but I don’t know I’m not sure yet. So are you going to marry Maurico yes or no?” Juana Calidad tells her, “well I don’t know Juana Matilde marriage and me. I’m not sure yet.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well then I knew you were going to say that. Oh how far are we going to go with this nun.” Juana Calidad tells her, “that’s it exactly I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life in a convent. Taking my vows, and become a novice.” Juana Matilde tells her, “you better not say that too Mauricio Fuentelafria or else he’s liable to get a heart attack.” Juana Calidad tells her, “Mauricio already knows and understands me.” Juana Matilde tells her, “well then what are you waiting for. If he understands, then he’s the right guy for you.” Juana Calidad tells her, “oh yes he’s a good man.” Juana Matilde tells her, “yes I also believe that its so. Oh man this is not working anymore. This bites I’m so bored, I hate being locked up in this house. When is it going to stop raining Juana Calidad.”

(Francisco de sale best known as San Francisco de sales. Born in august 21, 1567 in Lyon France. Was indeed a saint, he was a bishop of geneva and honored in the roman catholic church.)

In the other room, Juana Bautista tells Juana Manny. “You know being here, makes me concentrate on my paintings. But considering this rain, its just keeping me busy.” Juana Manny tells her, “I remember when I was little. I loved putting on make-up and fixing myself up. I would spent hours and hours on that. Without any siblings, my hair and make-up was my best friend. Well then this annoying rain, Octavio’s phone doesn’t work. Plus we can’t meet up, because he has no car.” Juana Bautista asks, “you love him a lot don’t you?” Juana Manny tells her, “yes he understands my motivations. Various people can think its bizarre. Plus he can handle me, when something bothers me.” Juana Bautista tells her, “well its a lot of times. So do you intend on marrying him?” Juana Manny tells her, “well when the right moment comes yes. I think he’s going to be a good husband. How about you, you with your wolf man. Are you thinking of marrying as well?” Juana Bautista tells her, “destiny will chose not I. The thing is I do enjoy spending time with him.” Juana Manny tells her, “well then that makes me happy. Having love in one’s life is better.” Juana Bautista tells her, “yes that is true.” Juana Manny tells her, “you know something when we were sick with that illness. Days passed without any difference. Even thought I was interested in the fight. Juana Bautista you know something, it give me great sadness about Juana Valentina.” Juana Bautista asks, “what about her?” Juana Manny tells her, “well she’s the only one of us that’s not in love with anybody.” Juana Bautista tells her, “oh yes regarding Juana Valentina her case its quite sad.”

Tere tells Juana Valentina, “how about you pick Manuel Efe? I mean chose someone else. Your insistence on Ruben Salguero, it closes your eyes and you don’t notice the other guys.” Juana Valentina tells her, “have you gone crazy or something. Manuel Efe, he’s boring and annoying. He then gets so annoying, mentioning his various trips around Europe and Italy and such. He goes on and on, he doesn’t stop. No matter how much you try to stop him, plus remember all those times he tried to blackmail me.” Tere tells her, “well how about you think about his good points then. Not only Manuel Efe how about the other boys. You might fancy them? Plus you’ve never had trouble getting a suitor.” Juana Valentina tells her, “but I’ve never been the least bit attracted too any of them.” Tere tells her, “the worst person you could have chosen was Ruben Salguero. You have to see him, through the eyes of a big sister.” Juana Valentina tells her, “for your information that is now over. So you can take away all those thoughts that are upon you.” Tere asks, “are you sure Juana Valentina? Don’t you dare tell me lies, for I know you far too well. You begin telling various lies all over the place. So I don’t meddle in your life.” Juana Valentina tells her, “no I’m telling you the truth its over. My heart is covered like they say, with hard cold water. Someone froze it. Tere Ruben exists, he can’t be forgotten for he was once my love. Its past tense, now gone gone gone.”

Calixto is with Ruben, watching Dona. “Look Ruben your going to get that doctor. Tell him, to give Do
