Many of us surely experienced this kind of relationship, wherein the other person fails to reciprocate your affection. This usually happens to best friends who have known each other for a very long time or have grown closer and inseparable as time went by. Yet going the next level did not proceed as expected.
Just like the endearing and relatable relationship of Kakai Bautista and Ahron Villena.
Their unlikely friendship began during a trip to Japan. They maintained that special bond when they got back to Manila, with the comedienne attending to the actor when he got sick. Kakai subsequently expressed her special feelings for the actor, who said was born out of miscommunication. In their guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Ahron said that he didn't intend to make her fall in love with him, but his certain gestures might have sent the wrong signals to her.
However, their relationship turned sour when the Dental Diva vocally declared her feelings for her good friend on a television show, to which he reacted by posting an upfront statement on Twitter that pained her so much and led to a two-year gap.
In their recent Magandang Buhay stint, Kakai revealed that during this two-year strife, she was not the only one who tried to end it but that Ahron also tried to reach out to her through their manager.
The estranged besties reconciled last September 2017 when they met unexpectedly in Tagaytay City. With a warm, tight hug and laughter, they restored their tattered friendship.

If there's something that they have learned in their quarrel, it’s having constant communication with each other and not letting other people meddle between them.

"Dati kulang sa communication, [pero] nag-mature na kami pareho. Kapag may problema, kunwari ako naiinis ako sa kanya or naiinis siya sa akin, kaming dalawa na [mismo] ang nagsasabi," Ahron confessed.
Kakai supported this by saying that every time they would have disagreements, they made a pact of listening more to each other than heeding the comments of the people around them.
Now, all is good between Kakai and Ahron and they're about to charm us with their team-up through the upcoming romantic-comedy flick “Harry and Patty.”
