J: Is Aimeé still in the Hacienda?
M: How dare you coming here?
J: How did she dare deceive me? To say she would wait for me! Did you know she was my lover? Yeah, my lover! Even if you are shocked!
M: It isn´t true!
J: And she dared marry another man when she swore she would marry me.
M: There must be a mistake!
J: No! No mistake! And you know it´s true. She deceived me. She made a fool of me! I made this trip for her to get money to marry her! But this is not the end!
M: Please, wait, I beg you! I pray you! Andres has no guilt! He is a victim.
J: I don´t care!
M: Licenciado Mancera told me you were a good an generous man! I understand your rage, but there is innocent people who have nothing to pay for!
J: There is no innocent people….Why are you not a nun anymore?
M: Because they didn´t accept me
J: They didn´t accept you?…or did they fear you woud tempt the monks?
M: Don´t be rude! Besides, Aimeé is no longer here. They left for their honeymoon yesterday. There is no point anymore! She is already married. Even if there was anything between you and here it´s over now.
J: We shall see. When will they be back?
M: They went to Europe. Plese, go now. I promise you. I´m willing to give you anything you want…
J: Anything I want? Are you sure?
M: Yes. I can collect some money.
J: What if I didn´t want any money? I lost a woman, a countess, maybe I´calm down if I´d get another one….
J: Didn´t you say they´d left?
M: I don´t know….
A: Don Noel told me you were out.
J: Yeah, I´m back now.
A: I´m really pleased. Why did Noel not come to my wedding?
J: He got the flu.
A: Have you been introduced?
A: Well then. I want you to meet my wife.
J: I´ll be very pleased…

Ai: I understand my aunt asked you to stay, mom, but frakly, you shouldn´t have accepted. And it´s not because of ou, but Monica. I´m fed up.
A: Aimeé, I want you to meet an old friend
(Aimeé faints) Love!
* * *
M: You got what you wanted! Why don´t you leave?
J: What I wanted?
M: Yes. You got commotion. My sister even fainted!
J: And you think I´m satisfied with it. No. It’s just the beginning.
A: She is recovering.
J: That´s good.
A: I´m very pleased you kept Juan company, Monica.
M: You are wellcome
A: Will you come with me to my office? Beg your pardon ……
* * *
J: Don´t be so afraid. I said nothing to him. I´ve let all of you use me as you please.
M: Thank you so much
J: Don´t be so thankful yet.
M: I think you should´n have taken Andres´ offer.
J: Why not?
M: It doesn´t make good sense. Aimé has repented, I´m sure of it.
J: You are really naive..or a big liar.
J: Repented…the prositute? Besides, she was the one who looked for me! She was spyingme for days, even if I was naked! What kind of man can resist? And she got what she wanted and she made me fooled, so I made a trip I risked my life in every single minute..do you want t know why? To be able to get to her dressed as a gentleman, so she wouldn´t be ashamed of being with me at the daylight, to honor whatever YOU think is important: family, convenience, religion! And I did it so because she said she loved me…she accepted to be my wife and she swore for her life she would wait for me.
M: I understand you, but please, there is no point in telling it to Andres. Beside, I assure you she is really distressed.
J: And she is taking comfort in his husband´s arms.
M: Don´t think about it, please!
J: I´ll think about whatever I want. And ´ll do whatever I want.
M: Please, be generous!
J: Generous!… Only those who are happy can take the luxury of being generous. And at this moment, I feel like being dragged by the devil…

N: Don´t deny all the country is restless. There are too many injustices and people are fed up.
F: It´s always been the same. There have always been riches and poor ones. That´s life!
N: You speak so because you are on the other side, but you´d think differently if you´d have to fight for food and life, you wouldn´t be satisfied.
F: I´m sure I wouldn´t, but fortunately that´s not the case. Everyone in the world has what they deserve. What do you think, Juan?
F: Don´t you want to express your opinion?
J: With people who talks for the sake of talking, no.
T: How rude!
N: Don´t worry, licenciado (Noel). Andres is the one responsible for making us to share a meal with…rude people.
M: Forgive if I tell you, Alberto, but you were the one who offended him. It is the truth, mom. You can´t tell someone who´s obviously born in poverty and fights for his life that he´s got what he deserves.
F: No, doña Catalina, let her make her point. Do you think Juan deserves more than what he has?
M: I don´t know him well enough, but I do know many have too much without deserving it…
