As she’s currently in the process of moving on from having her heart broken by her unrequited love with her best friend Chico (JM de Guzman), Betty (Arci Muñoz) unexpectedly crossed paths with an enigmatic, dashing man named James (Kit Thompson) during an event they both attended in Bacolod.
From being mere strangers who had a really awkward first encounter – with James catching Betty taking stolen pictures of him, while the latter accusing the former doing the same that made him assume that it was only her way of obtaining his mobile number – they’re now on their way to becoming lovers!
And while we are all looking forward for their relationship to prosper in the coming episodes, let’s take a look back on the 15 instances when James showed how willing he is to help Betty in fixing her broken heart through this Kapamilya Toplist.
Like what we have mentioned, their first meeting was really embarrassing. Yet, they’re able to move on from it as they became each other’s constant companion during the course of the event and in celebrating the holidays as well. As she got to know him deeper and got comfortable with him, Betty mustered enough strength to open up to him regarding her heartbreak, to which he jestingly retorted, “’Pag ikaw na-fall sa’kin, sasaluhin kita”.
Aside from making her laugh by doing things that piss her off, James also made her feel lighter and better by telling her to turn her aches into art, which was proven effective as she’s able to somehow go back to her bubbly self after their sojourn in Bacolod.
As they went back to Manila, James began executing his “da moves”, which failed to slip from Betty’s sight. In his pursuit of getting closer to her, he willingly volunteered to be her assistant in one of her photo shoots and did silly things just to make her laugh every time they’re together.
Even though he knew that she’s not ready yet to fully open her heart to him since she’s still in the process of healing, he told her that it’s just fine for him if he’s going to be her “rebound guy” (apart from being her personal English teacher and life coach. Despite refusing the idea, she wished that he would never get tired of her.
Of course, who would forget that time when James showed how sincere he was when he told Betty about catching her once she falls as he became her knight-in-shining-armor when she broke down while under the rain upon catching Chico and Pia (Alyssa Muhlach) kissing.
Doing so made her ill the next day, so he once again came to her rescue by taking care of her and making her feel good until she felt better again. In return, she gave him kisses and tight embrace as a way of showing how much she appreciated everything he did for her, and told her, “Thank you for taking care of me, for staying, and for choosing me. Thank you.”
Is James going to be Betty’s “Mr. Right”? Let’s all find out by not missing an episode of Pamilya Ko, weeknights on Primetime Bida.
