Solid shippers of Heidi (Michelle Vito) and Gelo (Paulo Angeles) got their hearts broken when the latter bid the show goodbye after having been shot in his heroic attempt to save Marissa (Jodi Sta. Maria) and her son, Jacob, from a gunman (Manuel Chua).
Your hearts may still be bleeding and missing the tandem so bad. So, here’s a little cure to your fragile, broken hearts: a Kapamilya Toplist reliving Heidi and Gelo’s most kili’ moments in Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.
Gelo has always been a good guy, always sacrificial and loving that he was willing to endure all obstacles just to get near the girl he loves. Their love story started by taking on the rich-girl-meets-poor-boy and love-hate formulas combined.
It was a case of love at first sight for him, so he tried to charm her with his suave ‘hirits’ and irresistible smile but the tactic didn’t work.
Nonetheless, he didn’t give up. Destiny played its part when she needed his help in Geometry homework and quiz. Gelo impressed Heidi with his brilliance and got to spend time with her. The best thing was her perfect score paving the way for their friendship.
Nothing really beats the bliss of new love and we witnessed how Gelo and Heidi savoured the blossoming affection without rushing into things. Obstacles such as Sonya (Desiree del Valle)’s disapproval and their different social status tried to cut the budding romance. Yet, they endured everything together.
They both did their parts to fight for their friendship. There was Gelo’s sunny attitude that kept him persistent and strong enough to swallow Sonya’s insulting words. On her part, Heidi made an effort to immerse with Gelo’s world to prove that love will surpass social classes. Thanks to the neighbors teasing them, we were treated with loads of smile-inducing ‘kilig’ in that scene.
Then, came the endearing street food date which later on levelled up to a cafeteria date at the Villarosa Construction where Gelo was taking his internship. Add to that his suave pick-up lines complemented by her sweet and natural reactions.
Who would forget the night when she helped him finish his tasks in the office? The cute banter filled with cheesy lines made hearts burst in kilig. And who would have thought we’re going to unhate the notorious ‘ipis’ for a moment as Heidi embraced Gelo out of fear?
His much-awaited confession came soon after. With tears, he wore his heart on his sleeve and said he is trying to endure everything to prove that he is worth her love.
The next scene showed the two dreaming about building things together. Pure, unadulterated love was in the air as they looked forward to their first formal date in a few days. But the expected romantic event, and her plan to make their relationship official, turned into a shock. The supposed beginning of a new love turned into a tragic end, wiping out all the beautiful possibilities but never the memories they shared.
Seventeen years after the tragic crossfire that took Gelo’s life, Marissa is back with a vengeance. Catch the second book of Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
