M: What are you going to do?
Az: Juan wants me to get married.
M: To that man, Cajiga?..
M: Juan, my liffe…
J: I promised you.
M: I know, but I was so afraid.
Az: I knew he wouldn´t beat you
J: I had luck.
J: I guss he will be with Don Noel. They´ll let me know.
Az: Well, beg your pardon.
J: My love
M: You look tired.
M: You are taking too many risks coming here.
J: Segundo is helping me distracting the policeman.
M: Thanks for not hurting Andres.
J: I couldn´t, but I fear he will consideer this an humiliation.
M: Pedro told us. Nevertheless, anyhting is better than losing the life.
J: Maybe he would have preferred so. I think he will never get over of all that happened.
M: Are you talking about Aimeé?
J: Yes. He blames me for all of it.
M: You think he will go on harrassing you. What if we leave San Pedro?
J: Do you think it would stop him? He has a lot of money. He could spend his whole life chasing us.
M: Why? This has to end.
J: What if it never ends? I promised you a whole, happy life. But I´m no fulfilling this promise.
M: Its not your fault.
J: Anyway, how much can you endure? A day will arrive when you´ll regret our marriage.
M: No, Juan, never.

M: Don´t open. I´ll go. Please, hide yourself.
Jo: Serafin is in prison.
J: In prison?
Jo: Señor? Here?
J: How do you know it?
Jo: I saw him in te morning. Mr. Marcelo (RV) put him in the servants room and he took him.
J: To jail?
Jo: That´what Mrs Amanda told me. She asked me to warn you. I first led mss Mariana to the court, left to Don Noel´s and as there was none, I came here.
J: I´ll surrender, so they let him free.
M: No, Wait till Don Noel arrives. Please, Juan. We don´t know for sure he will be free if you do so.
J: Dammit. I should have killed him, He deceiveed me. He told me they would free Serafin after the duel.
M: Do you think Andres turn Serafin in?
J: Sure, who else?
Jo: Señor. Do you want me to do anything else?
J: Yes, go back to DN, wait for him, and bring him here. Tell him I need him, urgently,
M: I may go t see Lcdo Romero. I can pray, beg, I don´t tink he´s as bad as Don Noel and his sister in law say.
J: You won´t get anything.
M: Let me try.
J: I´m the one who has to go. Serafin is in prison because of me.
M: Please, stay till Don Noel arrives, at least.
J: Monica, don´t you realise if Serafin talks all of us will be compromised, even Azucena? Do you want to see her in prison? Pragnant?
M: Well, then. Lets suppose he has already done it, and everyone is arrested. What do you fix being in prison yourself? I´m tired of angst and anxiety. I don´t want to see you in that place again. I couldn´t stand it. Please.
J: I promised you a very different life, didn´t I? Look at what I gave you, anxiety, shame…
M: That´s not what I meant. So many things have happened, one after other one,. We haven´t had any moment of peace. I don´t know what to do anymore.
J: I´ve been vey selfish, just thinking about me, my needs, feeling you are mine..
M: I am. We are both one of the other one. You know I couldn´t live without you. You are my whole life, my husband.
J: Good husband, yours.
M: Don´t say that!. I love you, I love you and I want to share everyhing with you, but, please, look for another solution. I couldn´t stand seeing you in prison again.
J: You won´t. Don´t worry
* * *
M: Please..Did you talk to Joaquin?
DN: Yes. everything is fixed. Serafin is the canteen with Tuerto.
J: Wasn´t he in jail?
DN: They were questioning him when I arrived to the Court.
J: Did he say anythingg?
DN: No, nothing that can´t be repaired. Doña Sofia was the one who gave him to Romero, not Andres, surely trying to avoid the duel.
M: I´m glad everyting is fixed.
J: Do you want a coffee or a refreshment?
M: I´ll bring you in a minute
J: Have a seat.
* * *
Az: It´s tue. There is nobody outside.
J: I´m leaving now, then.
M: Why? You can stay here.
J: It´s your mother´s house. I prefer not to be here.
M: I´ll go for my things.
J: No, let´s wait till everything is over.
J: Please. I´ll feel better, free to do what I have to.
M: You can do it from here.
J: Please, don´t insist.
M: When are you coming?
J: I´ll let you know. See you.
M: Yes Juan
DN: See you soon
J: See you.
