Chapter 13: Secrets

1 - Can't you go any faster? - I'm sorry, I'm doing my best, sir.
Family of Lidia Aguilar? Yes, that's me.
Is she all right? Yes.
The doctor's examining the patient right now and when we have the diagnosis, we'll tell you more.
But is she conscious? Has she woken up? She's conscious and awake.
She's fine.
What's wrong with her? We can't say anything else right now.
You have to wait.
Thank you.
A long time ago, I learned that some things are better kept to yourself.
Whatever the cost, whatever it is.
Because if those secrets come to light, they may change your life completely.
Miss Aguilar, I'm glad to see you looking so well.
What's wrong with me? You're expecting a child.
I wanted love the most A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES But it never stays long A notch to my bedpost Pretend they're mine Sundress wrinkled on the floor I'm naked, you're not here no more To keep me warm, keep me warm Crack the door with a trash bin Maybe you will come back in And keep me warm, keep me warm My love, my love, my love Pour salt in the wound My love, my love, my love Pour salt in the wound - [DOCTOR.]
Are you all right, ma'am? - Yes.
Yes, it's just not what I expected.
Sometimes it's better for things to happen unexpectedly.
I'll give you all the details when your husband comes.
- I'll call a nurse to get him.
- My husband? What? The man in the waiting room.
I thought he was your husband.
Excuse me, I'm a little disoriented by all this.
Let's call him.
I mean We've been waiting for this a long time and I'd like to give him the good news in private, if you don't mind.
He'll be very happy.
I understand why, if it's your first child.
- So, is that it? Can I go? - On my end, it's all in order.
Make a follow-up appointment Take care.
Thank you.
- Enjoy the news.
Yes Thank you.
In the dark, we don't see [CARLOS.]
Lidia, are you all right? What did they say? - Leave me alone.
I want to go home.
- Listen Leave me alone! Go.
When we both need to find some light This spell from my heart is broken - [SIGHS.]
- You must have had a good reason to slug it out with Carlos in front of my brother.
I hope it was worth it.
It's about her, isn't it? - About Lidia? - Why do you say that? Something tells me she's the one who broke Carlos' heart.
I don't know what you're talking about.
The way he looks at her and how he dragged her out of the building.
After we fought? - I knew I wasn't wrong.
- [SIGHS.]
I'd better go.
I'm sorry I put you on the spot on the rooftop.
The truth is, this is really is a tough time for me.
I don't know what happened.
I lost control.
For a moment, I thought about ending my life.
- I'm so sorry if I pressured you.
- No.
No, no, don't blame yourself.
It's not your fault.
I don't think anyone reaches that point just by feeling pressured.
Are you all right? I lost a witness that way once.
A long time ago now.
You accused an innocent person? It's hard to get over something like that.
How long ago was it? You don't have to tell me if you don't want to.
I thought it'd be good to talk.
It helps me.
Um I'm sorry if I made you feel bad.
I'm finding it hard to deal with this on my own.
And you, on the rooftop, proved to me that not all men are like the one who left me.
If he left you, he's not a man, he's a bastard who doesn't deserve you.
Forgive me, I shouldn't have said that.
- I should go.
- No, no, no, no.
You've always treated me so well Ángeles, I don't know if we should [SIGHS.]
Please, don't leave me alone.
I guess I'm in love, I know it's wrong [CUEVAS SIGHS.]
I can't get enough It's like I'm frozen and you're so hot Let myself go Don't know where I'll end up And I just don't care 'Cause when I'm with you There ain't nobody else there Your love is so dangerous It's fire, save me Dangerous, take me higher, baby I'll bet my love against my worth Then there'd be a higher love Higher love [BREATHING HEAVILY AND MOANING.]
Sara! Sara, we won! We did it! We did away with the rules.
And it doesn't stop there.
You're reinstated as of tomorrow.
But as an operator, so you can't give me orders anymore.
Aren't you happy? Don't you like the idea? No, no, it's not that.
I'm so happy for you and the girls.
- I'm not going back, Carlota.
- What? But, Sara, we won.
We did it together.
And you needn't worry about anything.
What is it? You know you can tell me anything.
There's a doctor, Dr.
He treats cases like mine.
What cases? Carlota, I just want to know what's wrong with me.
I need to know who I really am.
Don't you understand? Of course I understand.
I told you, I'll help you and support you in everything, but I don't know what this doctor will tell you.
Neither do I but he's a doctor with a good reputation, and I've been looking up information Sara, doctors cure illnesses, and you're not sick.
You're not.
If you really want to support me, support me with this.
- I want this doctor to see me.
Girls, I'm home.
Did I miss something? - Why are you smoking that crap? - What were you talking about? About the strike, how we're going to celebrate it and - Carlota.
- What? No more lies.
- What lies? - Miguel, I have to tell you something.
He asked me in front of everyone, Grandma, in the middle of the strike.
What's that about a strike? María Inmaculada? Um No, no, no, no, no.
The Stork, The Stork.
It's a, um a café near where we work.
- Yes.
- Well, there.
Oh, good.
I'm glad.
May God bless this union, with a marriage, then with a baby.
Grandma, not so fast.
There'll be time for everything.
A marriage without children is like a stove without coal.
It has no reason to exist.
Just last night I got Pablito's engagement ring back.
Nothing like a good herb liqueur.
- Shall I send it to you? - No, no, no, no, no, no! No, this one's beautiful.
- Sure, don't worry.
You keep it.
Well, then as you wish.
And congratulations to you both.
- You're making me very happy.
- Thanks, Grandma.
Take care.
I want you looking radiant for the wedding.
A little modesty.
God is everywhere and we don't want to offend him.
Doña Lola, we're engaged.
God has more important things to think about.
Maybe God does, but I don't.
In this house, appetizers aren't served before blessing the meal.
- Agreed? - Agreed, Doña Lola.
That's more like it, son.
If you keep agreeing with her, she'll stop letting us sit together at dinner.
She lets me in without objecting.
Without objecting, Pablo? You're my fiancé and - we love each other.
- Yes.
What more do we need? For what? Sweetie, when you look at me like that I should know what you're thinking.
I'm thinking about us, about how much we love each other, and the time we've been together.
Since I arrived in Madrid, I've changed a lot.
I'm more confident and modern.
I have a better idea of what I believe in.
I realize that my small-town ideas are old-fashioned.
I know you're trying to tell me something, but Sometimes respecting certain traditions is absurd.
- Right.
- Right? Because if two people love each other, it's not worth waiting for Pablo, I'm finding it harder and harder to restrain myself.
- It's hard to restrain yourself? - Mm-hmm.
You know, that heat, that thing I feel when we're together - Doesn't it happen to you? - No, no, no Yes, yes! It does happen to me, but there's no rush, right? We have all the time in the world.
No need to take the bread out of the oven too soon.
What are you talking about? I'm hungry.
Let's go to dinner.
- That calamari sandwich place.
- And Doña Lola was worried.
Fine, but you're buying.
I'll see if Lidia wants to come.
And we can give her the good news together.
Okay? Whatever my future wife says.
- Sweet talker.
Lidia? Lidia? Oh, darn.
I guess it's just going to be us two.
Six days is 144 hours.
Hold on, Pablo, hold on.
Where is she? If you're looking for Lidia, you've come in vain.
People saw you arguing after the strike.
What happened? And don't lie.
You were seen leaving together.
Yes, we were outside and she suddenly fainted.
- She fainted? - I took her to hospital, but she left on her own.
She said she was fine.
She had some reaction to a medicine - What the hell are you saying? - I'm saying I tried to find out what happened, but she refused to talk to me.
Why were you arguing? What did you say to make her faint? Francisco, I didn't do anything, I swear.
I'm just as worried as you.
If something happened to her and you're not telling me - What will we do? Fight? Again? - No, no.
If anything bad happened to her, I'll kill you.
Six months is too long to go without seeing each other.
Don't you think, princess? Thanks for responding to my call so quickly.
How are you, Alba? - Alba died a long time ago.
- Well I'm so glad you still count on me when things turn ugly.
What is it this time? I need you to get me a widow's certificate.
And this widow's certificate is for? - It's for me.
- What? I'm pregnant.
- Do you know who the father is? - That doesn't matter.
I'll bring up my child myself.
I don't need a man beside me to make my way.
Honey, what about having an No.
I'll bring it up alone.
That's why I need your help.
You know better than anyone that the world will judge me harshly unless I become a poor widow.
All right.
- But give me a few days, eh? Mmm.
- I need it as soon as possible.
I thought the document was for your friend Ángeles.
Why do you say that? I think she's got trouble, too.
She asked me to get some information on a policeman called Cuevas.
What did she tell you, exactly? You'll have to ask her that.
She asked me to be discreet, and you know me.
Victoria, what did Ángeles tell you? [ÁNGELES.]
"Witness states he saw a dark-haired woman dump the car.
- It's late, I have to go.
- Already? - Don't you want to sleep here? - No, no, impossible.
I have a lot of work at the station.
This shouldn't have happened, and it won't happen again.
- I don't usually do this.
- No.
It's the first time in my life that I've ever done this.
No, I didn't mean that.
It's just that the case is still open.
Ángeles, you're an extraordinary woman but I can't right now.
I'm sorry.
What are you doing here? You want me to explain out here? Can I come in? Why are you here? - Mario's in Madrid.
He never left.
- What? What are you talking about? I found this at home today.
I remembered that Mario said you gave it to him.
Now you have a souvenir of when you two betrayed me.
I don't think you get it, Ángeles.
Mario had keys to my place.
I assure you, this wasn't there before.
What if he's in the city and went into my place? I think you're losing your mind.
Mario isn't here.
- How come you're so sure? - Because Mario ran off.
There's proof he left with another woman.
For a moment, I thought he'd gone with you but clearly, he didn't love you that much either.
Mario cheated on both of us.
I feel just as betrayed as you.
Where are you going with all this? - I'm not your enemy.
- Mm.
We're on the same side.
Now you want us to be friends? No, I don't want to be your friend, I just want - to bury the hatchet.
- This isn't a war.
For starters, because I have no interest in it at all.
Mario disappeared.
I just want to know where my husband is.
- If you don't mind - Sure, don't worry.
I know Mario will turn up.
Besides I have full confidence in Inspector Cuevas.
Good night.
Listen, Pablo.
Doña Lola's been asleep for a while, and I thought you and I could No, no, no, no, no! Have you gone mad? No.
I didn't know you were like this.
- Hey, honey, I'm very decent.
But we're engaged, that's another story.
I just wanted to do what all couples do.
- What they do when they're married.
- Pablo, that's nonsense! - We're close enough? - I can't! Pablo, why not? - If it's because you don't like me - No, Marga, it's not that.
Of course I do.
How could I not like you? I like you a lot.
No, no.
You're not the problem, I am.
You see? You don't like me! I'm fine to eat a calamari sandwich with, but when it comes to the other thing Marga, I can't I can't.
- But why? - Look I've got a little - It's just a silly secret.
- We said there'd be no more secrets.
All right, all right.
Here Phimosis? What's that? - Is it like a pimple? - Marga, it's not a pimple.
Look try to imagine a tortoise when it sticks its head out - Or a squid - Pablo, please! Make everything okay Won't you come a little closer? See the better day I hope you know We'll stay Don't you want to be like us? Pablo, this is the parish bulletin.
Why are you showing me this? Didn't you ask me? But now I won't be able to forget it.
Didn't you say we should have no secrets? Now I'm saying it's better to have some secrets.
- Now who's here? - Shh! [STUTTERING.]
Don Francisco, what I'm sorry, but I couldn't wait until morning.
It's very important.
- What is it? - I'm looking for Lidia.
Is she here? No, she isn't.
I'm surprised, too, but we thought maybe she was having a drink after work.
Is something wrong? Lidia left work with Carlos.
They argued in the street and Lidia - she fainted.
- What? Carlos says she was able to leave the hospital, but she didn't want to tell him what had happened to her.
Why did they argue? [CLEARS THROAT.]
I'm leaving now, so you can talk in private.
- Pablo, uh - No, no, it's all right.
If you need anything, let me know, but I don't want to pry.
Good night.
Good night.
Carlos discovered that Lidia and I were together the other night.
Together? Very together? [STUTTERING.]
In the house Well, it's I didn't know that.
I mean, it isn't What matters is that Lidia's all right.
That's why I'm here.
I'm not sure that she is.
Carlos says it was a reaction to medication she's taking.
- Medication? - Yes.
But she's fit as a fiddle.
Well, Lidia is Miss Secrets, so maybe She's reserved even with her friends.
I'm glad it's not just with me.
We should go to Carlota's house to see if she knows anything.
Good idea.
I'll go to the hospital to see if they know anything.
This is my address.
If you find out anything, please, let me know.
- Marga.
- Yes? I really appreciate this.
Don't worry.
What matters now is finding her.
Another? You're having another? All right, drink until you fall down, but I think that this silence is lasting too long.
- Carlota - Don't "Carlota" me.
Say something.
- Like what? - Sara opened her heart to you.
She at least deserves to hear your feelings about it.
I wasn't expecting it.
- How long have you been hiding it? - That isn't important.
Then what is? I don't know what you expect me to say.
First I catch you two kissing, and now Sara feels she's a man.
- Stop, Miguel! - It's normal he feels like this.
You're asking me to react as if it were quite normal when our world is going to hell.
- What am I in this relationship? - [CARLOTA.]
You? You should think more about Sara and less about yourself.
I thought you were a modern man who could adapt to new relationships.
So did I, but maybe you're asking too much.
I should answer the door.
Miguel, is Carlota here? - What is it, Marga? - I need to talk to her.
- Yes, come in.
- Thank you.
Marga! Why are you here so late? She's come to celebrate the proletarian victory.
Maybe she can make more sense of this than I can.
Why don't you tell her? I'm leaving.
Ignore him.
He's had a bad day.
Lidia's missing.
I thought she might be here.
- Here? - Carlos and Francisco argued and - Lidia fainted in the street.
- What happened? Carlos took her to the hospital and when she recovered, she left, - but she didn't come home.
- If she isn't here - We should go to Ángeles - No, not after what happened.
Lidia comes first.
All right.
Let's go.
- I'm sorry, Sara.
- [SARA.]
Don't worry.
- Let me know if you find out anything.
- Sure.
- [MARGA.]
- What are you doing here? - Can we come in? - Of course.
- I'm sorry to stop by so late, but - Just a minute.
First of all, I want to apologize.
I'm really sorry about what happened with the strike, Carlota, but I was in a very tough spot.
That's not why we're here.
We're looking for Lidia.
- Is she here? - [LIDIA.]
Thank God, Lidia! Where were you? We were worried.
How are you? Are you all right? Something's happened.
Things have gotten really ugly.
- Carlos must not find out about this.
- Are you sure? I mean - He's the father.
- [MARGA.]
What about Francisco? He came looking for you and he told me that you were That we were trying it again.
But I can't burden him with Carlos' son.
- Maybe he'd want to do it.
- Marga, it isn't so easy.
I love them both, Carlos and Francisco, and I'm losing my mind.
I don't know if you can love two people at once.
Yes, you can, and you don't have to feel bad because - those things happen.
- They certainly do.
I don't know how to deal with it all.
It's my responsibility and I think I should raise my child on my own, far away from here.
Are you insane? Spain isn't ready for unmarried mothers.
That's precisely why, Marga.
I have to go far away.
Just like that? You're running away, like always.
Just like Alba Romero would do.
But this is different.
This involves two people.
You can't keep your pregnancy a secret.
- We all have secrets, Carlota.
- All those secrets come out in the end.
Those and others, however much you try to hide them.
I only hope you're wrong, Marga.
Some secrets are best kept hidden forever, right? Lidia, if you're talking about Mario, you needn't worry.
There's nothing to fear.
I still think you should stay! Don't you realize? Are you going to uproot your life over two men? Are they going to decide your future? Do you know what you future is? To go back to the company, finish your telephone project and be successful.
The decision is made, Carlota.
All right, but don't count on me for help.
- Carlota - Carlota, don't leave like that! Girls, please, don't fight.
Carlota, wait.
What's wrong with you? You're being unfair to her.
You, of all people.
- Me? Why? What are you talking about? - Nothing.
No, you said earlier that we all had secrets to keep.
- You meant me, didn't you? - I saw you kissing Sara.
I know you don't have to explain.
We're not friends, after all.
Friends tell each other their secrets.
Marga, it wasn't planned.
I just fell in love.
- Things aren't black and white.
- Shut up, I don't want to hear it! - Marga, please - Leave me alone! [SIGHS.]
Why are you trying to seduce Inspector Cuevas? Who told you that? Don't lie to me.
I know everything.
Do you have something to tell me or not? No.
You've got nothing to worry about.
I told you before, I've got everything under control.
Yes, that sounds very reassuring.
Does he suspect you? Or us? No! Lidia, stop worrying.
- I'm taking care of it.
- Ángeles, if you have a problem, we all have a problem.
Remember? We're in this together.
You can't do this on your own.
But you just said you're leaving forever.
It doesn't sound like we'll be together.
So, please, save your breath.
I'm expecting a child.
What do you want me to do? If that child is a problem there are ways to solve it.
You told me that yourself when I was pregnant with Mario's child.
So it was all right for me, but now it's different for you? It isn't the same.
No? Why? What's the difference between you and me? I can't tell you.
Ángeles, it's something What? Forget it.
You see? You ask me to tell you everything, and then you hide in your world, in your past, in your secrets Don't ask of others what you yourself can't give.
Get out.
Get out.
From now on, we all look out for ourselves.
I promise I will listen I won't come undone Let's wade in shallow water [CRYING.]
My God, Lidia, where were you? I was so worried.
What's wrong? I wish I'd never lost you in that train station.
When I was a child, I had to learn to defend myself, and know who I could and couldn't trust.
And I was taken advantage of.
I got pregnant.
But Victoria helped me.
I had an abortion.
Then I couldn't I'm sorry.
You did the right thing.
I think so.
You're the first person I've told.
I couldn't even tell the girls.
Why are you telling me now? What's changed? I'm pregnant with Carlos' baby.
I'm not going back to him.
I can't.
But I want to have this child.
Before you came back he seduced me.
That was when he stole my idea for the public telephones.
I can't go through all that again.
I don't want to wonder again what would have happened if I can't be with you like this.
I can't force you.
I can't force you to carry this burden.
The best thing is for me to leave.
Leave Madrid.
It's the only way I can do it on my own.
It's what's best.
For you, too.
- I'm sorry.
- Get out.
Get out.
At times, we remain silent because confessing means accepting our fears.
When you listen you can hear it [LIDIA.]
Secrets protect us.
And whether or not we confess them, there are always consequences.
Now it was time to face mine.
When you listen [CARLOTA.]
What do you think of the place? [SARA.]
It's all right.
I don't like it.
- Why don't we go home? - [SARA.]
I've thought about this.
It's just an interview with the doctor.
If it goes well Are you all right? - Is it because Miguel didn't come? - Yes.
Sara, I've never told you this but a while ago, Miguel had some bad habits and he hung around with the wrong crowd.
I helped him get away from all that.
And now that you need our support, it hurts me.
- It hurts me that he's so selfish.
- Don't worry, Carlota.
Don't worry.
- It'll be fine.
- Well [DOCTOR.]
It's more common than many people think.
Many men and women feel that they aren't in the right body.
You're at a crossroads, Sara, but you needn't go through it alone.
She isn't alone.
She has friends who love and support her.
I'm delighted.
It's very important to have the support of your loved ones.
Can you help me understand what's happening to me? Yes.
Trust in our experience.
Psychiatry has advanced a lot recently.
- We don't stigmatize anyone here.
What are your methods? You still haven't explained them.
I'm touched to see how much you worry about your friend, but believe me, she'll be in good hands with us.
I suggest she stay here this morning to fill out some forms.
And if we conclude that we can help you, we'll offer you the possibility to stay here for a month.
A month? But, Sara It's the amount of time that others like your friend have needed.
Well, I'll leave you alone to decide.
A nurse will come for you in a while.
And if you decide to trust in us, - we'll start as soon as possible.
- Very well.
- Thank you.
We could start by looking at the facilities, couldn't we? Or talk to some of the patients to see what they say.
Sara, there's no rush.
I've been thinking about it for years, fighting it on my own.
And I think that doctor knows how I feel.
A month flies by, Carlota, you'll see.
I want to do this.
I'm prepared.
Will you send me a suitcase with the things I need? Of course.
But call me when you're settled in.
Sara, if you change your mind, it's all right.
Call me and I'll come and get you, okay? Lidia, are you leaving today? I have to stop by the company to submit my resignation.
Earlier, I was remembering the day we started working there.
- Do you remember? - You only had your suitcase.
Yes! What a terrible day.
- I got lost.
I wanted to go back home.
- You were robbed.
- I was robbed.
But now, thinking about it, it was one of the happiest days of my life.
Yes, I know it might sound a bit odd but it was the day I met all of you.
Lidia, I didn't want you to leave without knowing this.
Why didn't you tell me? Well, you've got enough on your plate.
And here, take this.
It's temporary, no church, no time.
It's a disaster right now, but I wanted you to know that I'd love it if you were there.
It won't be the same without you.
- I'm really going to miss you.
- And I'll miss you.
And don't feel bad about yesterday.
I imagine how hard it must be to make that decision.
I know you're doing it for your child.
I hope Carlota understands it someday, too.
Of course she will.
You know she's stubborn as a mule.
But at times we don't know why we do what we do.
But it makes me really sad because I'd like to help you look after the baby and be a kind of Aunt Marga.
You've always been like a big sister for me.
- Why are you crying? - Because I'm so sad.
- It isn't goodbye forever.
- Do you promise? - Well, I've got my invitation.
- Yes.
I can't miss this.
Hello? [WOMAN.]
Good morning.
You have a call from Bilbao.
Will you accept it? From Bilbao? - Yes, please.
- I'll put you through.
Hello? Hello, I don't hear you.
Listen, if this is some kind of joke, it isn't funny.
Coming! [CARLOS.]
Lidia has finally reappeared.
She has a meeting with Uribe at 8:00.
That's it.
I wanted you to know.
I know, I saw her.
You saw her? And you didn't tell me? I'm worried about her, too.
You don't deserve to know about her because you don't deserve her.
You're right.
I'm a miserable bastard, and I've been blinded by resentment.
But I want to fix things.
Did she tell you what the doctor told her? [LAUGHING.]
Francisco, please, I want to help her.
Look Go away.
I want to be alone.
I guess I'm in love I know it's wrong but I cannot stop I can't get enough It's like I'm frozen and you're so hot Let myself go Don't know where I'll end up And I just don't care 'Cause when I'm with you There ain't nobody else there I can't stop thinking No, I can't stop thinking about you [MOTOR SPUTTERING.]
Come on! Come on! Your love is so dangerous It's fire, save me Dangerous, take me higher, baby You poison all that I deserve Your love is so dangerous It's fire, save me Dangerous, take me higher, baby I bet my love against my worth Then there'd be a higher love Higher love Higher love Higher love [LIDIA.]
The good thing about secrets is that you are their sole owner, and at any time, you can take steps to change the direction of your life.
And it's gonna hurt When my heart bangs Dangerous, take me higher, baby [LIDIA.]
But you can't always predict the consequences this will have on others.
Then there'd be a higher love Higher love [LIDIA.]
That's why you have to be prepared for anything.
Higher love How are you? Leave me alone, please.
Lidia, don't do it.
Don't leave.
You can't give up your dreams, everything.
You're leaving behind a lot of people who love you.
Marga, Carlota, Ángeles and me.
You're running away, and you're not a coward.
What's he talking about? - Leave us alone, please.
- Lidia, what's going on? Are you leaving? I'm pregnant.
And no one but me will determine my future.
You've seen the light How it's shining bright, shining down Through the clouds Making everything come alive Making everything wrong feel right Making everything loose feel tight Like the stars in the heavens lined up Like I'm only on the set There's no more feeling like it's over But the only thing that's over I'm no longer standing over I don't know what's the use, the use They no longer can refuse me 'Cause now I'm taking control And now, tonight I'm getting out, out, out of this place And I'm not falling behind I'll hold the winning trophy At the end of this race I'll be dancing in the rain I'll be drinking champagne! This is my night And I own it Say yeah
