LnB: Talking about the kiss

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

Previous: Rejected

Week 08, Tuesday, Day 037

Back at the boarding house, Precious is giddy and excited at the news that Billy kissed Lea. She asks her friend what it was like and if this is the first time they've kissed. Mrs. Reyes interrupts before Lea can answer.

She reminds Precious that the issue isn't the kiss itself but rather how Lea feels about Billy. Lea admits to being confused.

She doesn't know whether to leave Francis and go back to Billy, or to stay with Francis and forget her childhood sweetheart. When Mrs. Reyes asks her who means more to her, Lea says she doesn't know.

Mrs. Reyes says she's sure that one of them matters more to her, and that her heart will reveal the answer, if she were only to listen. She advises Lea to listen to her heart, because this is a far better basis for making her decision, rather than misguided feelings of gratitude.

Precious says as far as she's concerned, Lea should choose Billy because he was her first love, and first love never dies.


Much later, Francis arrives at the boarding house and goes into a jealous rage when he sees Lea with Billy. The two men get into a loud argument that quickly degenerates into a fistfight. Lea shouts at them to stop, and her shouting brings everyone running out of the boarding house.
