[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

[RAIN PATTERING]

[PACO] Here, love. Come in.

[PACO SIGHS SHARPLY]

You'll get fresh air
in this place,

and you'll be able to rest well.

I'll stay here with you, okay?

Here, we'll be away
from all the stress.

You'll feel better here.

Love, please let me
take care of you.

I hope you listen to me,



because I'm just
looking after you.

[PILLS RATTLING]

It's medicine time!

Get up, dear,
and take your medicine.

I don't want to.

My goodness, Cherry Red!

You're not a kid anymore.
Don't make this hard for us.

What do you want me to do?

Should I grind this
and mix it with sugar, huh?

Come on, take your medicine.

- Auntie Ebs.
- Hmm?

Help me find Mister Lando,

and I'll take that.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]



Please, Auntie. I can't be here.
I don't want to stay here.

We need to find Mister Lando
and that letter.

[EBS SIGHS EXASPERATEDLY]

Cherry, there is no letter.

It's real, Auntie.

No, it isn't! There's no letter!

Auntie Ebs, I saw it!
I read the letter!

Mister Lando wanted me
to read it.

Please believe me, Auntie.

Snap out of it, Cherry!

We brought you here to recover,

not to look for some letter

or bother yourself
with whatever Lando said.

So, please, just take this
and focus on getting better.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- Come on, dear.
- [SOBS]

I'm not sick.

Yes, you are, Cherry.

[SOBS]

Cherry, you're sick.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I said I'm not sick!

Yes, you are! You are sick!

- [TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [BREATH QUIVERING, SOBBING]

You're letting the Estrellas
fool you.

How dare--

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

Do you think your dad
would be happy

if he saw you like this?

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [EBS BREATHING SHAKILY]

[SOBS]

- Cherry…
- [SOBBING]

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

- I'm sorry, dear.
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm so sorry.

- [SOBBING CONTINUES]
- Shh.

Please take
your medicine, Cherry.

Okay?

[SOBS] You need to
help yourself, dear.

Hmm?

[EBS SNIFFLES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Here you go, dear.

- [SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [EBS SOBS, SIGHS]

[SNIFFLES]

Come on. Take it.

You have to help yourself.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] What the hell
are you doing, Paco?

This is all wrong.

How does this make you different
from all the liars out there?

You're just like them!

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

But this is the only way…

to make Cherry
forget what happened.

And for her to believe
that it's not true.

You have to do this, Paco.

You just have to.

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love?

Are you ready?

Let's go?

Go where?

Ping and Pong are
waiting for you.

I know they're your
favorite horses

that's why I asked our staff
to bring them here

so we could go riding.

Let's go?

I don't want to go riding.

I'm tired.

Cherry? Love?

Please?

They'll be sad if
you ignore them.

What part of "I'm tired"
don't you understand?

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBS]

[BREATH QUIVERS]

[INHALES SHARPLY, SIGHS HEAVILY]

[SOBBING]

[BREATH QUIVERING]

[EXHALES SHAKILY]

[SNIFFLES, EXHALES SHARPLY]

How are you feeling now?

Feeling better
after taking a shower?

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

Where are you going?

I'll sleep in another room.

Why?

I can't bear to
sleep beside you.

Cherry, please just sleep here.

No.

Then I'll just sleep elsewhere.

No, Paco.

Stay there.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh! Dear?

Can I sleep here?

Of course. Sure.

Come here.

[GRUNTS]

Mm.

[EBS SIGHS DEEPLY]

What about Paco?

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

I can't bear to sleep
beside him.

He's your husband, Cherry.

He just wants you to get better.

But he's a liar.

Cherry, aren't you
tired of all this?

No.

It's exhausting to
keep fighting, dear.

You might fall down,

and you'd have to make
many sacrifices.

So you must choose
your battles wisely.

What's important right now

is for you to regain
your strength.

That's all we want, dear.

We want you to recover quickly

so that you'd have the strength

to overcome
this battle of yours.

Anyway, let's go to sleep.

I'm beat.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[CRICKETS CHIRPING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, you're awake.

Good morning.

Sit down. Let's have breakfast.

Eat up. After that, get ready.

- Come here.
- Why?

We're going out.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I don't want to go anywhere.

Love, everything's already set.

I prepared a surprise for you.

Do I look like I want
a surprise right now?

Love, please?

Just this once.

Please?

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

Do you remember back when
I was still courting you?

I would always bring you
to this place.

We would even race up this hill.

We'd hang out here whenever
we wanted to escape.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

It's been a while.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

[CHERRY] How about you?

[PACO] Don't worry about me.
I don't feel cold.

Time flies, huh?

I've been loving you
for so long.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

And if I die and come back
in another lifetime,

or if I get to live
nine more lives,

I'd still choose you, love.

I'd choose you in
all other lifetimes.

Love, remember my promise?

I promised to give you
everything you want

if you'd let me.

Love, will you let me fight for
and take care of you?

Will you let me
love you forever?

Can you really keep loving me…

…when I'm like this?

I can't help but be suspicious
of everything that's happening.

[SOBS] I feel like this is all
a nightmare…

[PACO EXHALES SHARPLY]

…and I desperately
want to wake up.

[SOBS] Paco, would you
still love me

even if I completely
lose my mind?

Yes, Cherry.
I'll keep loving you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" BY
GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

[SOBS]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Love, I'll do everything
for you to be okay.

I promised you that, remember?

I promised I'd do everything
for you because I love you.

Okay?

But I feel like…

we can't go back to
the way we were.

I can never get
the old Cherry back.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

Maybe I don't deserve
to be your wife.

That's not true.

[SOBS, EXHALES SHARPLY]

That is not true.

That's why I'm here.

I'll stay with you
through thick and thin.

I'm on your side.

I'm on your side, love.

And whatever happens,
I'll keep loving you.

You still love me, right?

I'm slowly starting to forget
how to love you, Paco.

[SOBS]

After everything
that has happened,

I realized love could fade.

[VOICE BREAKING]
Love, what do you mean?

I don't know.

[SOBS] I don't know.

I really don't know, Paco.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

[MUSIC ENDS]

[APPLAUSE]

Thank you. Thank you so much.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

We need to talk.

What?

You'll talk to me
or I'll make a scene?

Come here.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

What are you doing here?

Why weren't you
answering my calls?

And you've been
ignoring my messages.

Belle, I'm going through
a lot right now.

I have so much on my plate.

Right, I'm not one
of your priorities.

I mean, who am I for you
to put me first?

Belle, please. Stop this.

Things are over between us.

But that doesn't mean you
don't want me anymore, Seb.

Belle, I'm married!

I know!

I'm not telling you
to leave your wife.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Belle, enough of this.

Let's just end this.

Maybe…

Maybe this really is
the end for us.

Gov. Arevalo said
I should go back to Manila.

I no longer have business here
since elections are over.

That's good!

You can go back to
your old life--

I don't want my old life, Seb!

[SOBS]

Don't you want me anymore?

Seb…

Seb, I love you.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Just say the word and
I won't go back to Manila.

I'll stay here with you.

Belle, I don't want
to complicate things further.

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

Then let me help you.

I'll be by your side
and make you happy.

I'll help you forget.

Seb, I can be your escape.

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

Enough, Belle.

I'm sorry, but…

This really has to stop.

We're over.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING]

Love?

I'll be right back, okay?

I'll just attend to some things
at the office and the ranch.

By the time I get back…

I promise everything
will be okay.

We'll get through this.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHES SHAKILY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You still love me, right?

I'm slowly starting to forget
how to love you, Paco.

[SOBS]

After everything
that has happened,

I realized love could fade.

[VOICE BREAKING]
Love, what do you mean?

I don't know.

[SOBS] I don't know.

I really don't know, Paco.

[SOBS]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[LIGHTER CLICKS]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Hello?

[TORI] Sir?

What's this call about?

[INHALES DEEPLY]
Tori, I can't keep on lying.

Cherry has to know the truth.

Then tell her.

What does that
have to do with me?

You will bring Cherry
to your father.

I want Ramon to tell her

all the things
Papa made them do.

All of it.

I'll pay you.

What about Drew?
You'll just let him go to jail?

I have no other choice!

Cherry needs to know the truth!

Well, there's something
you should know about Drew.

But clearly, you don't care
enough to ask about him.

Why?

What happened?

He's taking drugs again.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Since when?

I don't know.

Probably for a while now.

Of course, you had no idea

because you're too
focused on yourself.

Look at what's happening now.

You'd let him go to jail
for your wife's sake?

What kind of brother are you?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You called for me?

Where were you?

Just outside.

Who were you with?

Why?

What did you do?

[SCOFFS]

Wow.

What's with all the questions?

We just played basketball.

Does basketball make you high?

You were with your
stoner friends, weren't you?

[GRUNTS]

You bastard!

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

It's getting harder
for me to believe

that you could still
change your ways, Drew!

I don't know if I should
still protect you.

Get out of here!

Leave!

Before I completely forget
that you're my brother,

get out!

Uh…

Drew.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

So she told you.

That explains why you're
acting like that.

It doesn't matter
how I found out.

The issue here, Drew…

is you're still an addict!

You're still taking drugs,
you bastard!

You don't have proof.

It's her word against mine.

But I guess…

you already chose
who you want to believe.

No, sir! Wait!

Sir! Sir!

[PANTING]

Let me explain, Drew.

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Welcome, Mr. Cuaresma.

- Here's the key to your room.
- Thank you so much.

- Let me help you.
- No need.

Your wife needs you here.
You're her lucky charm.

- Oh, not really.
- Aren't you?

Maybe the baby's
her lucky charm.

I heard you're pregnant.

Yes, that's right.

That's exciting.

I volunteer to be its godfather.

- Sure! Thank you.
- Anyway, I'll go to my room.

- Okay.
- Thank you.

Is he a close friend?

I don't even know
his first name.

Ma'am Becca.

A package arrived for you.

Yes, I was expecting this.
Thank you.

-You're welcome.
-Uh…

What's that?

Uh…

I think it's the blanket
for the baby.

Actually, I'm getting confused
with all the things I ordered.

[CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY]

Okay.

[CLEARS THROAT]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[HUMMING]

Good morning!

What time did you wake up?

I just got up.

Are you hungry?
I'll make breakfast.

Wait here.

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BECCA] I don't want my baby
to grow up without a father.

[PACO] Dave and Becca,

I now pronounce you
husband and wife.

Dave, you may now
kiss your bride.

[APPLAUSE]

The machine can't pick up
a heartbeat.

What?

[DOCTOR] It looks like
you're not pregnant, Becca.

[BECCA] What?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BECCA] I can't afford to
lose you, Dave.

Mmm!

I'm glad you finally have
the appetite to eat!

How are you feeling?

I don't know, Auntie Ebs.

I was at ease
when I woke up earlier.

Mm-hmm.

Unlike when I was
at the Estrella Mansion.

Maybe this place
really is good for you.

You're right.
It's all a mess over there.

It's too chaotic.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Maybe I'm just missing
our old life…

Hmm?

…back at our old house
when Papa was still alive.

When we'd be content with having
grilled fish on the table

that we'd eat with
our bare hands.

[CHUCKLES]

Auntie Ebs, maybe…

Maybe that kind of life
is better for us.

Because more money entails
heavier responsibilities.

More obligations and enemies.

The less money we have,

the less we have to worry about.

No one would want
to ruin our name.

Well, Cherry Red,
you can only say that

because you can now afford
things like medical care,

unlike most of the people
in General Luna.

They don't have much.
We've been there too,

that's why Panyong went to
work abroad, remember?

But Auntie Ebs,

the rich always fear
for their money and themselves,

that's why they exploit
what little the poor have.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Anyway, dear, just eat.
Help yourself, okay?

Here, have my share of this.

I know this is your favorite.

[CHUCKLES]

Auntie Ebs, where did you
buy this fish?

Straight from the fisherman
who caught them.

Fresh from the sea!

[CHUCKLES]

Eat up.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Try it with the sauce.

- Will you feed me?
- Hm?

[CHUCKLES]

Help yourself.

Want more veggies?

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

"Panyong, what I am about to
tell you is unforgivable…"

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Mister?

Yes?

What is it, ma'am?

Were you the guy who delivered
fish here yesterday?

Yes, ma'am.

But this is all
I have left today.

Uh…

Do you live here, ma'am?

Your aunt asked me

to deliver fresh catch
to your door daily.

Well, you gave us some
good quality fish.

[CHUCKLES]

Has it been long
since you moved in here?

No. We just moved
from General Luna.

The previous owner of that house
was also from General Luna.

My father and I used to deliver
fish for her too.

- Previous owner?
- Yes.

You actually resemble her.

You're both pretty.

Do you know her?

Her name was Carol Estrella.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

You knew Ma'am Carol?

You're familiar with her?

I don't know much
about her, though.

Oh, right.

She died early.

She actually died in that house.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

- She died in this house?
- Yes. That's right.

I was still young then,
but I can clearly remember.

They found Ma'am Carol's
body inside.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PENSIVE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHERRY] When the lawyer read

Miss Carol's
Last Will and Testament,

did the Estrellas tell you
what caused her death?

[EBS] Didn't Sir Freddie say
she died in an accident?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CAROL] You can't stop me
from telling him the truth.

You can't keep me locked up
in here forever.

If I can't come home,
I might as well die.

I don't want to end up
like your mom.

Your father locked up
your mother in here

because he didn't want
my dad to know the truth.

[CHERRY] Just like what
you're doing to me now.

[PACO]
I just want you to be okay.

That's all I want.

[CHERRY]
They made me look stupid.

They made me think I'm crazy.

[SCREAMS]

They all lied to me.

I loved them.

[CRIES]

I won't trust any of them.

You'll just stand there?

You won't greet me?

Don't you miss me?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]
