First of all, I would like

to welcome you to the class.

If Lorca hadn't been born and

hadn't written a single verse...

two plus two would still be four.

If Napoleon had invaded Spain 200 years ago

and we were here talking in French...

...two plus two, of course,

would still be four.

I want you to understand that

the only absolute truth,

the only thing that will remain the same,

is that two plus two equals four.

Barbara, would you come here please?

- What do you have there?

- Nothing.

Come on, Barbara, it's all right.

What do you have there?

- It's only a note.

- What have you said, Marcos?

That it's only a note.

So you have a note.

Marcos, go to the principal's office...

...and explain to her why you interrupt me

when I'm talking to your classmates.

Come on Barbara.

You should show me that note

and put an end to this nonsense

Read it out loud, so your classmates

can learn what's so important.

- Do you want me to read it?

- Yes, I want you to read it.

- Are you sure?

- I'm sure. Read it please.

I pity the pig-face.

Silence! Silence!

Is that what you think of me?

I've asked you a question, Barbara.

Is that what you think of me?


Give me that note.

Give me that note, Barbara!

Give me that note!

- I can't.

- Why can't you?

Because I don't have it.


So... two kilos, not in bad condition...

I can give you five euros.

But "The Hive" is there. You can't pay me

the same than for the DIY manual.

That's the idea

of buying books by weight.

Yeah, but it's "The Hive", isn't it?

Cela, he's a Nobel Prize winner.

It's the nature of the store,

books by weight, whatever they are.

I can't do criticism with every book.

If you agree, I'll give you the money.

Ok, I'll keep "The Hive".



Alicia, my dear!

How are you, honey?

My arm hurts.

They have bitten me, didn't they?

No, they haven't. You have drip feed.

We're in the hospital.

Is the bull gone?

Which bull, my dear?

There was a black bull, very big.

There's no bull, honey.

You dreamed it.

- Hello Luis.

- Hello.

- Hello Alicia.

- Thanks.

You're welcome, precious.

How do you feel?

A bit dizzy.

That's normal.

Rest a little bit.

- Luis, could you come with me, please?

- Sure.




Tell me honey.

- Hello.

- Hello.

- Are you all right?

- Of course.

- How about you?

- Awesome.



Tell me, honey.

Can I sleep over at Makoto's

on Saturday?


Do you have a Japanese friend?

No, it's Vanesa's nickname.

Why do you call her Makoto?

Because it's her nick.

Makoto is Vanesa's nickname.

You must finish your therapsides work.

I only have to write it out neatly.

Yes, but you have to do it, Alicia.

Can't you do it?

Part of the work is to write it out

neatly. It's not the same if I do it.

Don't be brazen.

If I finish it before Saturday

I can go, can't I?

I don't want you to rush it

only to go to Vanesa's.

If I don't rush it and finish

before Saturday, I could go, couldn't I?

They are all going.

- Who are all?

- Makoto, Sakura and me.

- Sakura?

- Paloma.

- Oh, so it's Paloma and you going.

- And Makoto.

Vanesa doesn't count. She's at home.

What are you going to do?

Watch anime and eat ramen.

Are her parents going to be there?

I have to talk to them.

- OK.

- OK.

- Can I ask you something?

- Of course, honey.

Can I smoke a cigarette?


I want to know how it feels.

I never smoked before.

You have to take it to your mouth.

You have to swallow the smoke

with conviction.

If you doubt, you'll cough.

If you could choose a magical power,

what would it be?
