LnB: Mrs. Reyes' Secret

This blogpost contains episode highlights for Carla's character, Precious, in Ligaw na Bulaklak.

Previous: Wondering about Mrs. Reyes

Week 08, Thursday, Day 039

Mrs. Reyes is distraught when she learns that Monching has packed up his things and left without saying goodbye. The girls try to comfort her but she's convinced that she's the reason Monching has left; that he had been terribly hurt by her accusations.

Mrs. Reyes goes on to say that the last time they talked, Monching reminded her of her own mistake -- a mistake he has never mentioned to her before; a mistake that she has regretted her entire life. Puzzled, the girls ask her what she means.

Mrs. Reyes shocks everyone when she confesses that she had a child many years ago. She had abandoned her child when it was a month old. By the time she realized it would be a mistake and had gone back to where she left the child, the baby was already gone; someone else had found the child.

She was so scared of the prospect of being arrested for abandoning her child that she ran away. It's been over 20 years now and she still doesn't know where her child is. She says it's been her prayer since then that she at least see her child before she dies.

Rita tries to reassure Mrs. Reyes that they will help look for her child. The girls try their best to comfort her.
