From fleeting glances and bickering moments, Tim (Zaijian Jaranilla) and Poch (Miggy Jimenez)’s interactions in Senior High have gone a little bolder, leaving the former even more confused about his feelings.
Is Tim falling for Poch? Well, if this Friday 5 video is any indication, he certainly is. We mean, can’t you feel the fire between them?
As teammates in their school’s basketball varsity program, they developed not only their skill, but also the spark between them. Butterflies soared high when Poch kissed Tim during their drinking session after their championship. And to him, that was a kiss he will never regret.
However, bothered by guilt because he’s in a relationship with Roxy (Xyriel Manabat), Tim tries to avoid Poch and pretend that nothing happened. But how could he resist his playful antics? One time, Poch sent a seductive selfie, at which Tim couldn’t help but stare. His eyes lingered for a few seconds on Poch’s lips until he came to his senses.
Nothing spells awkward than playing hide-and-seek with your feelings, which is why Tim acts elusive whenever he bumps into Poch on campus. Then again, how could he escape his magnetic pull? Even though at first he was firm not to entertain Poch’s request to help him ask Sky (Andrea Brillantes) for Gino (Juan Karlos Labajo)’s whereabouts, still he relented.
The thing about love, the harder you try to bury it, the more it swims to the surface. Tim went to a bar hoping to wash his problems with alcohol, but only to get more confused, as Poch was there and decided to keep him company. They argued about that kiss. Tim was furious that Poch turned him into a cheater. Love is not easy, especially when you try to box it or make it feel tangible. As Poch said, he doesn’t like labels, but one thing he’s sure of is that Tim is not a straight guy. He even said that Tim enjoyed that kiss too.
Well, feelings are messy and complicated, especially when you’re learning about a person’s conflicted life. But, somehow, you naturally find yourself fitting into the chaos of their world. When Poch opened up on his struggles, pain, and loneliness, admitting that he gets money through sexual acts, Tim decided to listen and not to judge. He evaded Poch’s attempt to kiss him on the lips. Instead, he tenderly cupped his face, looked straight into his eye, and kissed him on the forehead. Then, they shared a warm tight hug, giving the feeling of being safe and understood.
