They might be the youngest, but the admirable tandem of Lucas Cardinal and Coralyn Montesevilla, portrayed by promising young stars Albie Casiño and Mary Joy Apostol respectively, proved that they wouldn’t be the least when it comes to bringing kilig to the viewers of the scorching afternoon soap opera Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Los Bastardos.
A relationship that started out from being the best buddies, the two eventually realized that they are not only the best friend they would ever have, but they are also going to be the best partner in life that they’ve been probably wishing to have in this lifetime.
Now that the well-loved romantic drama is now on its final week, let’s take a look back on some of the scenes that hinted on the flourishing romance between the two and attested that they’re indeed perfect for each other.
Coralyn knows Lucas best
Just by her mere presence, the sprightly and cheerful Coralyn never failed to brighten up the mood of her “bes” Lucas whenever he feels dejected. Apart from his late mom Sita (Ana Abad Santos), it’s Coralyn who knows how to pacify him whenever he’s agitated and who knows all about his secrets and thoughts and emotions that he keeps in himself.
Because of her bubbly and endearing personality, Lucas didn’t find it difficult to fall in love with her. However, she seemingly wasn’t able to notice it for she was infatuated then with her ex-boss Joaquin Cardinal (Diego Loyzaga), who happened to be his half-brother, too.
Aside from being one of the most constant people in his life, she’s also one of his foremost fans and fervent cheerleaders who strongly believes in him whenever he doubts himself. Plus, he would always be handsome in her eyes whatever clothes he puts on.
Coralyn stays by Lucas’s side
When Sita died, Lucas grew depressed and ill-tempered. But instead of walking away from him, Coralyn unswervingly stayed by his side to accompany him and help him gather himself again, even though he repeatedly pushed her away.
She kept worrying about her best friend, especially when he stowed away in pursuit of finding himself and seeking justice to what happened to his mom, and prayed to the heavens to keep him safe and to lead his path back to them.
Coralyn looks after Lucas’s welfare
When she was finally able to find him, Coralyn tried her best to persuade him to stop whatever he’s doing and to go back to them since they’re all worried sick about him. He reminded him that his mother would certainly be dismayed once she sees him turn into a criminal and ruin his life because of his intense yearning to exact revenge against Mateo (Marco Gumabao), the real culprit behind Sita’s death.
In the end, he still refused to do what she wished and even told her to stop acting like she is his mom.
Coralyn and Lucas put their lives on risk for each other
They might still have a misunderstanding, but that didn’t stop Coralyn from attempting to rescue Lucas from the evil Mateo. But in her unexpected arrival to the scene, she became Mateo’s new target and the one who needed saving. Lucas didn’t think twice in saving her from being ran over by his mad half-brother.
Coralyn accepts Lucas wholeheartedly
The besties were able to finally mend their friendship and made peace with each other after Lucas apologized to Coralyn for the painful words he hurled against her during their altercation, the mistakes he committed, and his selfishness.
On the other hand, she reminded her that it’s not yet the end for him since what mattered the most was his decision to completely leave the world that ruined him and go back to them. He might not be the same Lucas she used to know, but she assured him that she would remain as his best friend and she would accept him for whoever he’d become.
Coralyn and Lucas grow fond of one another
As they’re able to rebuild their friendship, the two have grown closer than ever as Lucas accompanies Coralyn wherever she goes – not only to make sure that she’s safe, but as a way of thanking her for everything that she did for their family.
In one of their “bonding” moments, he sent a signal to her regarding how he truly feels about her, which she was able to immediately pick up.
Lucas feels for Coralyn
Just when Lucas was already sure of his feelings towards his best friends, he stopped himself from completely spilling the beans for he wanted to tell her once he gets back and he’s able to settle everything with his family. Thus, he contented himself from telling how much he loves her to himself and promised her that he would come back alive.
Lucas confesses love for Coralyn
Since they succeeded in their mission against the wicked Catalina (Jean Saburit), Lucas was finally able to accomplish his another mission – to confess his love for his “bes”! Much to his surprise, Coralyn was shocked with his revelation for she assumed that he’s been courting her all along and she was actually about to give her sweet “yes” to him on that moment since she’s also in love with him.
Will it be a happily ever after for Lucas and Coralyn? Or are the enemies going to succeed in destroying their forever? Let’s see on the remaining episodes of PHR Presents: Los Bastardos, weekdays on Kapamilya Gold!
