creo que el amante de cecilia , se entendia tambien con elisa, esta quedo embarazada y por eso necesitaba ausentarse del colegio, el certificado logicamente se lo consiguio isabel, por peticion del amante de elisa y de la tia(es que no recuerdo el nombre del personaje), y este mismo fue quien mato a elisa, porque ella tal vez se entero que el estaba tambien con la tia y lo estaba presionando, aunque creo que la primita de elisa tiene su participacion en esto, aun no se porque, pero me parese que esa niña odiaba a su prima.

Santiago no es Jen Carlos Canela, sino es su hermano menor. Por eso el personaje de santiago se parece mucho a Jen Carlos Canela!
