When two young people from opposite social poles develop feelings for each other, expect them to deliver the pathos of a forbidden love like what Michael (Nash Aguas) and Isabel (Charlie Dizon) portray in the Kapamilya series A Soldier’s Heart. And as we anticipate where their tale is headed to, here’s a Kapamilya Toplist that timelines their inspiring and heartwarming love story, and their most ‘kilig’ scenes.
It was a case of attraction at first sight for Michael but otherwise for Isabel. The neophyte soldier stopped Isabel’s car at a checkpoint, unaware of her standing. The cute bickering was peppered with hilarious insults thrown at each other. He called her ‘maganda pero matigas ang ulo’ while she dubbed him as ‘ang liit liit pero mayabang.’ And when Michael knew that the girl asking for his name and number is a political scion, he thought he was in trouble. Later, he would thank himself for that encounter.
Sparks started to fly when Michael was assigned to look after Isabel in the hospital while she was recovering from trauma due to a hostage-taking crisis. Michael little by little was winning Isabel’s attention, and heart.
To pay back for his kindness, Isabel sought Jethro (Elmo Magalona)’s help to invite Michael for lunch. That was their first date. Michael made the day brighter with his corny old-school jokes. And while she tried hard to control her laughter, Isabel’s eyes sold her joy.
Isabel found her feelings confusing until one ‘selos’ moment at the camp wherein he caught Michael helping some female visitors. That was how she confirmed that the friendship has slowly propelled into romance. She dropped by the base on the next day to apologize for her childish reaction, leading to a cute confession and her sweet ‘yes.’
When Michael said goodbye before leaving for his first attempt to join the Scout Rangers training, Isabel told him not to look at other girls. We definitely are as ‘tweetums’ as Isabel at one point in our lives! And when he got kicked out of the training due to a gastric symptom, Isabel didn’t show any hint of disappointment. She was even happy to see and talk with him again because she missed him so bad.
However, Michael and Isabel’s love story isn’t just about the butterflies and sleepless nights waiting for each other’s text replies. They have gone through major relationship obstacles as well rooted from their different religion and social status.
Despite the roadblocks, Michael would insist and vowed to never give up. He continued to fulfil his dream of becoming a Scout Ranger, taking inspiration from his family and especially from the woman he would like to keep. There was a scene wherein Michael had to pretend as a delivery guy (and bribe the security even if he’d run out of allowance) just to sneak inside the Gezali mansion and see Isabel. His world stopped at the sight of his love. Michael proudly shows the certificate of his hard work. He was finally a Scout Ranger and for him, it was one big sacrifice to prove that he is worthy of Isabel’s love. He wanted to make her feel proud, so she was. That tender moment ended with smiles and teases, hiding the pain they never want to discuss.
The last scene in this Toplist shows Isabel saying her goodbye to Michael before leaving for the United States to be with her mom. She was sorry for leaving him. Although he tried to act cool and smile about it, Michael failed to hold back the tears. But one thing was certain–he will always be there to wait for her. And she promised to be back for him as well.
With all they’ve been through, we are rooting for a happy ending for Michael and Isabel. But will the circumstances lead them back to each other again? Don’t miss the finale week of A Soldier’s Heart on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live at 9:20 PM.
