The Tinapay Corner employees enjoy the scenic view of the mountains while waiting for the company hiking to begin. Ana (Shaira Opsimar) relays seeing Gabo (Enrique Gil) and Billy (Liza Soberano) sharing a sweet time in a restaurant yesterday, unaware that it wasn’t a couple date but rather a group gathering of Team Croatia. The staff members shriek and assume that their two bosses are in a romantic relationship. They try to hold their smiles as Gabo and Billy, who they now call as a love team, arrive together. The tandem notes the private joke among the crew and feels as though they are being talked about. Billy tries to pry on the group’s topic but everyone simply laughs her off, stirring her curiosity even more.
Later, Billy grabs Ana to know the meaning behind the intriguing private jokes. She gives off a boisterous laughter upon learning about the rumours. Billy denies the allegations but Anna is obviously unconvinced. The latter insists on the undeniable magic between Billy and Gabo every time they look at each other, as if their stares speak volumes of love.
Billy starts to feel uncomfortable since then. She tries to avoid any close interaction with Gabo so as not to buoy up the intrigues even more. However, when asked to choose their buddy, Billy is left without any other option but to pair up with Gabo. Her elusiveness becomes quite more evident. And in what seems like tricks of fate, Billy gets into a series of slight accidents at the beginning of their hike. Of course, her buddy would be the one to always come to her rescue, paving the way to a deeper bond between them.
Gabo notices Billy’s discomfort as he tends to her strained foot. When asked about the reason behind it, Billy gets honest and says that their officemates are starting to misinterpret their closeness. Billy explains that she doesn’t want to get into the center of intrigues as it may affect their team dynamics and partnership. Gabo ends the conversation by joking about Billy’s secret feelings for him as the cause of her uneasiness. Kidding aside, he urges his partner to just ignore the hearsays.
Gabo carries a sprained Billy like they’re a newlywed couple. She acts defiant, telling him that it might just create more buzz. So, they end up in a piggyback ride as they continue walking the trail.
