M: Good afternoon
J: Can I come in?
M: Its just that… My mother is having a rest.
J: I didn´t come to see her.
M: It´s not approppriate for us to be alone.
J: We´ve been alone before.
M: Yes, but…We weren´t engaged
J: Don´t you think it´s silly? I won´t take advantage of you. Don´t be scared. I just want to agree about stuff.
M: Ok then. Please, take a seat.
J: Thanks. First thing, how have you been?
M: Fine, thanks. And you?
J: Fine. I went to the Registro Civil this morning with Don Noel and Dona Sofia.
M: Is evertyhing alright?
J: Yes, I do have my surname now.
M: I´m glad
J: So there are no obstacles for the wedding or….did you change your mind?
J: When are we going to the church for the amonestaciones?
M: When you want to.
M: That´s fine
J: I´ll come for you tomorrow at 10. Is that ok? Who are going to be your witnesses?
M: My mom, of course, and maybe Licenciado Mancera.
J: And your family? Andres and your sister?
M: I don´t know. I don´t think so.
J: Are you going to invite them?
M: I´ll invite them, but…
J. You think they are not coming, don´t you?….When you followed me in Campo Real to convince not to talk to Andres, you were more talkative than now.
M: There were more important issues to discuss than now….
J: Now what? Do you think our marriage is less important than Andres´ happiness? I want you to talk, to open (terrible word, lo sé) to me. I want us to know each other. I want to know what you like, or what disturbs you, what do you think about me, or what do you expect from me.
M: I expect you…to be a good husband.
J: What´s a good husband for you? Tell me with your own words, thinking about our life together.
M. I expect you won´t yell at me, to be polite, respectful and to be an honest man.
J: That’s a good definition for a father or a brother. Between spouses there is……not love, because there isn´t between us, but intimacy. Don´t you think about it?
M: I do.
J: And then?
M: We are suppossed not to talk about such things.
J: You really are very different from your sister.I´m leaving now. What a relief, right? Tomorrow at 10, then?
J: Give my regards to your mother.
J: See you.

Priest: Dona Catalina, how good to see you!
DC: My pleasure, father.
P: And you, Monica. How have you been?
M: I´ve been fine, father. Thanks.
P: I´m glad.
M: This gentleman (caballero) is Juan Alcazar y Valle.
P: Are you related to Andres Alcazar?
DC: We´ve come because Monica is going to get married.
P: Are you going to marry? To who?
J: To him.
P: How good!. Congratulations
J: Thanks. We want to set the date.
P: Yes, of course!
J: But Monica says there things to fix before the wedding. You´ll see, I haven´t been baptized, I haven´t received te Holy Communion…I didn´t fulfill such details.
P: And you call them details.

DC: I hadn´t been so embarrassed in my life.
M: It isn´t Juan´s fault, mom.
DC: I know, but it is inconceivable his father…..
J: Carmona wasn´t my father.
DC: I know but….sit down, Juan. I´ll be back in a minute. I´ll go to the kitchen.
J: You are really ashamed, aren´t you?
M: No, I´m not.
J: Don´t lie to me.
M: Ok then. Let´s say it´s uncommon to find a person who isn´t even baptized.
J: Millions of people around the world don´t know about such thing.
M: Yes… Other races, people who don´t believe in our religion.
Ai: Who are you both?
M: What are you doing here?
Ai: I came for a few days. I´m sorry if it bothers you. How are you, Juan?
J: What about your husband?
Ai: He took me here and he went back to Campo Real. My mom?
M: She´ll be back now.
Ai: Sit down Juan. Don´t be stood up.
J. No, thanks. I´m leaving.
Say goodbye to your mom for me, please. Beg your pardon.
Ai: He did it to upset me, to make me feel jealous.
M: He also kissed me yesterday… and you were not around.
* * *
Ai: Juan.. Juan! We have to talk! You cannot marry her!!
J: I too need to talk to you.
Ai: Damn her!
Ai: See? She is a gossip! You better leave now, I will go find you in your cabin tonight.
J: Its no use, because you will not find me.
M: Open the door, Aimee!!!
J: The only thing I want to tell you is that I don’t want you to try to prevent me from marrying your sister, because I swear to you that this time I will not forgive you for it.
Ai: Juan!!… Juan!!
