Watching Carmella tells what happens when green-eyed Coach Hernandez is charged with being chaperone to the gorgeous, young Latin hockey star Carmella.
Carmella and Milana's biggest mistake, when they eventually awaken, is to head back to their room together. They have missed the morning team meeting for the Uruguayan Olympic field hockey team, and when Coach Gloria Hernandez spots them together, she puts two and two together.
Both young women look exhausted, and they have not even showered! They are certainly too tired to play in the match against Japan that day. Angry and indignant, Coach Hernandez announces they will be fined the equivalent of $2,000 each ,and she would be moving into Carmella's room that evening. "If the mice are going to play," as she puts it, "then the cat cannot afford to stay away!"
Carmella, 20, acceptesthese disciplinary measures without complaint. Later, confined to her room, she finds out that Uruguay has lost their qualifying game that day, and she knows that the absence of Milana, 28, and herself damaged the team. All she wants to do now is get some sleep and try to make things up to her teammates in the following game. So it is with some relief that Carmella retires to bed at eight o'clock, sure in the knowledge that Milana's subversive and exciting influence has been forcibly removed, with Coach Hernandez standing guard like some kind of old-fashioned chaperone.
Yet for some reason, Carmella wakes in the night and opens her eyes. Immediately she shuts them tight! She cannot quite believe what she has seen.
Across the room Coach Hernandez is lying wide awake in her bed, her large eyes staring intently at Carmella!
