As his mother attempts suicide once more, swallowing a bottle of pills, Remi is called home by the two maids to come to her aid.
In high school, Remi dated a girl named Allison, and also became addicted to cocaine.
He was eventually sent to rehab for said addiction, and when gone, Zoila lied about it to Valentina, for she was still young.
Knowing this kind of cry all too well, she surmises that Valentina is in love and, when she learns that Remi is the one she is in love with, she is thrilled.
She decides that she will help the young couple to get together, but promises not to let Zoila find out.
She tries setting some boundaries, but Valentina has no interest in obeying.
Knowing that Remi and his friends are going to the movie theatre that night, she dresses up and seeks them out, revealing that she designs her own clothes and getting a stamp of approval from them, with Remi himself even stating that he likes her.
Remi reluctantly agrees to, and so Valentina is now given the chance to finally win him over.
When her mother, Zoila, is out at the store, she changes into a white floral-patterned dress and "accidentally" prepares two cups of tea.
However, this doesn't stand in the way of him and Valentina being together, nothing does, not even Valentina's mother.
Born to Genevieve and Philippe Delatour, Remi grew up in a rich household, never having to worry much or take care of himself.
The two of them seem to be bonding and, later, Remi asks Zoila if Valentina has a really nice sewing machine, for he'd like to get her a present for helping him.
