More than its refreshing storyline and the riveting developments of Kadenang Ginto, our Kapamilyas are apparently hooked with the intense confrontations between main characters and stiff nemeses Romina Mondragon (Beauty Gonzalez) and Daniela Bartolome (Dimples Romana), which are often ignited by Carlos (Adrian Alandy).
Well, we really couldn’t blame the latter for behaving vehemently towards the former as her husband is becoming close again to her ex-flame Romina, and he apparently harbors special feelings towards her until now.
Those who have ardently watched the soap opera since its premiere on October 8, 2018, know that Carlos and Romina used to be a couple before Daniela and her dad Sir Robert (Albert Martinez) emerged in their lives. They actually supposed to get married and fulfill their dream of having their own family, but everything was shattered when Daniela seduced and besotted Carlos on the eve of their wedding. He failed to show up the next day, which left Romina and her family totally devastated and infuriated towards him. Making matters worse was when her mother Rosanna (Eula Valdez) died because of the extreme wrath and anguish she felt on that situation.
Since then, their paths gradually parted – Carlos was forced to be with Daniela because she was pregnant then to Marga, while Romina tied the knot with Robert, who vowed to help raise Cassie. However, as their families have to live under one roof, this gave Carlos the chance to get close to her again and somehow hopes that their romance will be rekindled.
Even though he keeps on denying this to his wife, his yearning to be with her again is really evident on his actions. Here are the five receipts:
The way he gazes at her
There’s indeed something with the way Carlos looks at Romina every time he sees her – there’s longing. Just like when he spotted her drinking water in the kitchen and got stupefied (and thirsty!) with the sight of Romina in her silky nighties and robe. He wasn’t able to move for a moment until his bubble was burst when she started talking at him.
He’s deeply concerned about her
Although he knew that Daniela would really be outraged once she catches him being close with Romina again, Carlos couldn’t afford not to be concerned with Romina, especially when she suddenly fainted in front of her. As he assisted and brought her to the couch, he got mesmerized with her beauty and all the beautiful memories they shared together in the past flashed back in his mind.
He fantasizes about her
Even in his sleep, it still Romina who’s been running in his mind. Once, he dreamt of her dropping by the auto repair shop and began to seduce him with her soothing voice and sensual gestures that truly aroused him. It was only a figment of imagination but it still delighted him.
He’s protective of her
Despite Daniela’s efforts to separate them, it’s been proven that Carlos’ attraction to her is definitely stronger. Although he betrayed her a few times, there are still more instances when he saved her from her wicked wife and other people who tried to harass or take advantage of her, such as when he caught a man allegedly peeped through Romina’s pencil skirt while they were at a hospital.
He’s her shoulder to cry on
Since he still has feelings for her and she already has no husband to lean on to in times of challenges and desperation, Carlos stepped in and offered her his help. We assume that perhaps, this not only his attempt to regain her trust, but her heart as well. Unfortunately, his good deeds sometimes has negative effects as they fuel the wrath of Daniela and the intense quarrels between her and Romina.
No matter how you conceal it, Carlos, we’re still to catch how smitten you are up to now with Romina because actions indeed speak louder than words!
When will Carlos have the guts to profess his hidden admiration to Romina? Let’s find out in the upcoming episodes of Kadenang Ginto, weekdays on Kapamilya Gold.
