ABS-CBN’s newest primetime series A Soldier’s Heart has been filling our weeknights with action and inspiration as it gives us a glimpse of the perilous and tough lives of our valiant soldiers as they fulfill their sworn duty of protecting and defending their countrymen at all cost against the enemies in and out of the country.
However, just like in real life, it’s definitely impossible for love to not emerge even in a hopeless, war-stricken place. Thus, after the governor’s daugter Isabel (Charlie Dizon) finally bestowed her sweetest “yes” to her avid admirer Private Michael Mendoza (Nash Aguas), we’re now anticipating if Pvt. Alex Marasigan (Gerald Anderson) and 2nd Lieutenant Lourdes Bacalso (Sue Ramirez) are going to be the next pair who will thrill us in the coming episodes.
But as we look forward for them to be officially together, let us take a look back on their ten love-hate moments on A Soldier’s Heart that probably gave us hints that there’s indeed a huge chance for romance to bloom between them through this Kapamilya Toplist.
It was indeed a case of ‘hate at first sight’ for Lourdes and Alex as the former, who was then just finished taking a bath and wrapped in towel, caught the latter using the female comfort room. Stunned, she immediately ordered him to leave.
She continued to be stern towards him in their next encounters, which made him wonder why she seemed to be irritated at him most of the time. From giving him a punch in the stomach after accidentally hitting her with a ball while he was playing basketball with his comrades, to tormenting him by commanding him to dig a huge pit where they could sleep and consistently throwing insults and being sarcastic at him, Lourdes indeed succeeded in making Alex feel bad about himself. But unbeknownst to him, doing so and seeing his reactions actually make her smile.
However, it’s not always that the young, beautiful, and smart officer acts aggressively for she also has a sweet and lighthearted facet. We’re able to see that when she answered Alex’s phone when his mother called and then he nicely handed it to him and when she gave him words of encouragement after he apologized to him for the failures he committed ever since they first met.
And in the latest episode, we couldn’t help but get kilig when we caught Alex staring intently at Lourdes, who was then clad in a white dress, as she entered the restaurant where his parents treated them and their mates for dinner. After that, she invited him to accompany her going back to their camp by riding on a motorcycle with her as the driver. As the rain started to pour while they were on their way, both of them agreed to stop for a while and stay at a hut they saw as they waited for the rain to stop.
Is this going to be the beginning of Alex and Lourdes’ romantic bond? Well, that’s for us to find out so you better not miss an episode of A Soldier’s Heart, weeknights on Primetime Bida.
