The stepdaughters Episode 22 Mayumi accepts Francis’ proposal, Luisa and Daphne fight over Hernan
At the meeting, Hernan and Luisa had dinner with Daphne and their partners. Daphne spoke fondly of the time she and Hernan shared as they worked and travelled together. Seeing where Daphne was driving at, Hernan asked her not to put much meaning into it since it was a typical working relationship.
Since Luisa was yet to visit Hongkong, Hernan offered to take her there for their honey moon. Daphne felt upset and dropped a glass, pouring its content on Hernan’s clothes. She offered to wipe it but Luisa reminded her that she was his wife and did it herself.
When they went to the ladies’ room, Luisa warned Daphne to keep away from Hernan. Daphne told Luisa that she misunderstood the situation and even thought they were friends. Luisa made it clear that she knew she was only pretending and instead asked her to do things for Hernan that only fit her job description as secretary while she also do the rest as his legal wife.
Daphne was not willing to let Luisa have the last win so when they were leaving the restaurant, she pretended to have injured her leg. She told Hernan that she couldn’t walk to her car so Hernan carried her inside, making Luisa upset.
At work, Francis tried to speak to Mayumi since he wanted to find out why she wouldn’t accept him but she ran away from him. She went to the ladies room, Francis followed her there. Mayumi kept on distancing herself from him so Francis pulled and k!$$ed her. Mayumi slapped him and stormed out before he could apologise. He tried to go after her but Sasha ran into him and said she would take care of the situation.
Sasha spoke to Mayumi and asked her what she wanted from Francis as she was earlier upset after seeing him with Isabelle but she wouldn’t still accept Francis after he explained what happened. Mayumi said she wanted him to leave her alone but Sasha said it was time she had to accept her feelings for Francis.
Luisa was still upset with her husband and when they got home, she confessed she did not like it when he carried Daphne. Hernan teased her for being jealous as he explained that he only did that since she was injured. He then carried Luisa to make up for what he did.
The following morning, Francis spoke to Mayumi and apologised. He also wanted her to confess her feelings for him but Mayumi said she didn’t like him. Isabelle ran into them and wanted to know what they were talking about. Mayumi said Francis wanted to accompany her to the blogcon launch for their product and Francis agreed to go with Isabelle.
Daphne told Isabelle what happened the previous night and they decided to work together to keep making Luisa jealous. Isabelle called Luisa to inform her that Hernan and Daphne were locked together inside the office and suspected that something fishy was going on.
During the blog con, Isabelle hang around Francis which made the reporters to suspect that they were l0vers. The scene got Mayumi upset so she walked out. Francis went after her and insisted that she admit her feelings for him. Mayumi however told him to leave her alone and pushed him away from her.
A car was packing up and suddenly hit Francis. He collapsed and Mayumi was frantic, thinking that he got injured. She finally admitted that she liked him and didn’t want to see him hurt. Francis woke up with a smile and asked if it was going to take him getting hit by a car for her to admit that she liked him.
Mayumi apologised for pushing him away. Francis said he would accept her apology if she agreed to be his girlfriend. Mayumi sent Francis to the office since he said he did not want to go to the hospital. She was glad to admit what she felt for him but was still worried about Isabelle.
When Luisa arrived at the office, Daphne pretended to have fainted and Hernan tried to help her up. Luisa slapped Daphne and asked her to stop flirting with Hernan. They pulled each other’s hair but Hernan stopped them from fighting.
Daphne left the office with Isabelle and they were glad that they made Luisa react. Isabelle was confident that Luisa would finally leave Hernan but Daphne thought she might get fired instead. Isabelle swore not to allow her to get fired since she was not ready to lose those loyal to her.
