After the introductions, Hector introduced his best friend, Alejandro (as he walked towards them) to Rubi and it was love at first sight. They shook hands held onto each other hands while looking at each other smiling, oblivious of their surroundings.
Alejandro picked their luggages and they went in search of Maribel. Hector was so anxious that he literilly ran to where she was waiting. She stood up as he approached. This was the first time they were seeing face to face. Their eyes radiated so much love for each other and they embraced. Hector introduced his best friend, Alejandro to Maribel. Maribel was no doubt happy to see Hector but it seems she is afraid of something that it showed. Alejandro asked Rubi to come with him so that the love birds can have some privacy. Rubi knew the cause of Maribel's anxiety and she went to her and whispered that she should tell Hector the truth before following Alejandro.
She opened up and asked Hector to forgive her. He was surprised to hear that she was disabled in one leg but he told her that it was ok, comforting her that it didn't change anything.
Arturo, Maribel's father was not in consonance with her relationship with Hector. He simply didn't trust the young New York city boy with his innocent daughter but she assured him that he was the love of her life.
Hector and alejandro were invited to Maribel’s house for dinner, an opportunity to meet her father.
Maribel invited her best friend, Rubi and gave her one of her best dinner dresses so that she could be presentable. Rubi looked simply stunning in that dress.
When Alejandro and Hector arrived, it was Rubi who welcomed them at the door. Alejandro was stunned speechless at how gorgeous she looked.
