Rubi, Episode 1 - Hector Arrives Mexico

Rubi came from a humble background and so lived in a poor neighbourhood. She had always despised her status and vowed to use her beauty to change her status completely. She attends a private university courtesy of a scholarship and support from her working sister who had the responsibility of maintaining the home and Rubi’s education.

In her quest to be wealthy, Rubi befriended a wealthy girl named Maribel in school. Maribel is a sweet, honest and kind-hearted rich girl. She is slightly disabled in one leg as a result of an accident. This made her social life very boring and she had no friends. She had come to love Rubi like a sister, so she took her to her home - a Mansion . Rubi became very envious when she saw the affluence that surrounded Maribel; this was what she had always wanted for herself.

Rubi was overcome by jealousy. She flirted with Maribel’s and was rude to Maribel’s aunt, Pancha. She was so cunning that neither Maribel or her father noticed but Pancha wasn’t fooled, she read Rubi like a book and knew that her friendship with Maribel was not sincere.

Maribel took Rubi to her bedroom and confided in her about her internet boyfriend, Hector, who lived in New York. His parents were dead, so his god-father had been managing his inheritance which has grown, making him a rich man. She showed Rubi a photograph of Hector, he was a very handsome young man. This was the kind of man Rubi wanted for herself.

He had sent a necklace to Maribel to confirm to her that he would be in Mexico to see her in a few days; this excited her to no end. Rubi then asked if she had told Hector about her disability. She told Rubi that she tried but never had the courage to do so because she was afraid of losing him. Rubi was angry at her friend’s response. (what’s her business anyway?)

Rubi glanced with longing at Maribel’s wardrobe, filled with clothes and jewelries and Maribel, being a generous person, she gave Rubi clothes and jewelries for keeps.

When Rubi got home she bemoaned her fate to her mother and sister. She was jealous and angry that despite her beauty, she had nothing while Maribel had everything. She promised herself that she was going to escape from poverty, whatever it takes.

Hector’s boss wanted him to stay in New York but he had made up his mind to settled in Mexico so that he could be with the love of his life – Maribel. He told Alejandro as he packed, the he could not wait to be with her and that he had longed for the day that he would take her to dinner and dance with her.

On the day Hector was to arrive in Mexico, Rubi accompanied Maribel to the airport to welcome Hector. She was a knock-out, dressed in a stunning, short dress that Maribel gave her. Maribel stayed in the airport lobby while Rubi when to welcome Hector. As he came down the stairs, she kissed him on his cheeks and said “don’t you remember me?”
