No te tomes atribuciones que no te corresponden. Lo que haga yo con Diana son cosas nuestras exclusivamente. Ella me abrazó. –Es que estoy preocupada por ti –dijo–. Eso que me contó Diana, y lo que te pasó ahora... estás mal de salud, ¿verdad? ¿Por qué no sacás hora para médico, ya que estás acá? –No tengo ningún problema de salud, Beatriz.
