Alfredo: Always? Julia: No, of course you’re right. Alfredo: Why did you say this is the last time? Julia: I am going home. Alfredo: *LONG PAUSE, THINKING* When? Julia: Tomorrow. I received a letter from Father and Mother yesterday. They want me to spend Holy Week at home.
*LONG PAUSE* That is why I said this is the last time. Alfredo: Can’t I come to say good – bye? Julia: Oh, you don’t need to! Alfredo: No, but I want to. Julia: There is no time. *LOOKS AT THE OCEAN* Home seems so far from here. This is almost like another life. Alfredo: I know. This is Elsewhere, and yet strange enough, I cannot get rid of the old things. Julia: Old things? Alfredo: Oh, old things, mistakes, encumbrances, old baggage. *THEY HELD HANDS BUT JULIA DIDN’T FACE ALFREDO* Alfredo: Good – bye SCENE 9: Carmen & Esperanza Esperanza: To what do I owe this pleasure of this visit, my beautiful sister in law? Carmen: *Chuckles* This is the reason why I like you for Alfredo. Esperanza: Why are you here? Is there something bothering you? Carmen: I just missed you in our house. I don’t see you and my brother as often as before. Are you both fine? Esperanza: Don’t worry, Carmen. We are fine. You know how workaholic your brother is. Carmen: Is he? But why does he always go out with Julia Salas. Esperanza: Julia Salas?
Carmen: Yes, Judge’s del Valle sister in law. Didn’t Alfredo mention it to you? Esperanza: I don’t know. Maybe he’s not worth it to mention. Carmen: But they’re getting closer for my liking.

If a man is married, he is not ought to seek comforts in the arms of another woman. If he is engaged, he does not love somebody else. Carmen: I just don’t understand, four years ago, he was so crazy over you but now, it’s like he’s tired of— Esperanza: Stop thinking whatever it is, Carmen. I’m going to get your food and drink.

Alfredo: Oh, is the judge going? Julia: Yes. *LONG PAUSE* Julia: Mr. Salazar, I wish to congratulate you. Alfredo: For what? Julia: For your approaching wedding. I should have offered congratulations long before, but you know mere visitors are slow about getting the news Alfredo: Are weddings interesting to you?
Julia: When they are of friends, yes. Alfredo: Would you come if I asked you? Julia: When is it going to be? Alfredo: May Julia: May is the month of happiness they say Alfredo: They say, would you come? Julia: Why not? Alfredo: No reason. I am just asking. Then you will? Julia: If you will ask me Alfredo: Then I ask you. Julia: Then I will be there.
