He then tightens control of the finances and becomes mean, violent and cruelly jealous. Under cover of duty, he starts gallivanting and takes a mistress whom he installs in an expensive penthouse. When she learns of this and queries, Germáno denies it, beats her and throws her out of the marital home. He travels on duty to Beira with the mistress, Aurora.
