Martin’s friend Alfredo continues to make martin reason to stop his revenge against veronica since he is now in love with her but he feels so stable minded to do it no matter what because after fencing with her even in aggressive way she still gave out a nice smile without seeming to be angry one bit, and that proves that veronica was the one who used her nice and attractive smile to destroy his brother because he couldn’t resist her.
