My Beloved Episode 30 – The One with the Good Samaritan
Aired in the UAE on 26th March 2012
Desa now suspects something fishing going on with Tita Elsa. “Paano nangyari na wala sa tiyahin mo ang titulo? Importanteng dokumento yon, di pwedeng mawala!” How can Elsa just leave an important document like that?
Sharina has no clue, “ewan.” Desa smells something, “Baka niloloko ka na ng tiya Elsa mo.”
Sharina tells her since they were young, she took them in. If she wanted to do them harm, “sana noon pa,” she could have done it long ago. [Hay Sharina, never trust your aunt! Di ba dapat kilala mo rin sha after all this time?] Desa still cannot shake off her bad vibes, “Kunukutiban ako.”
Benjie talks to the nurse about Monica and asks for Sharina but she’s not there. Mr. Kwan sees Benjie and asks why he is there. Benjie shares he’s there to see a friend. It happens that Mr. Kwan owns the bank and since Benjie returned his bag untouched, he will pass on the good deed by making all the expenses of Benjie’s friend, free of charge! This makes Benjie very happy and he thanks Mr. Kwan for this kind and generous gesture. [aws, see how good deeds get repaid? Kaya every-all maging good na tayong lahat!]
Sharina is at her wits end and still she doesn’t know where on earth is she going to get the money to pay the hospital. Desa suggests she talks to father and ask help from the church. Or maybe ask Nelson? But Sharina doesn’t want to ask any favors from Nelson. “Nakakahiya na kay Nelson, ang dami ko nang atraso dun.”
Benjie appears wanting to tell Sharina the good news about Monica and how he got Mr. Kwan to waive all bills but she immediately screams at him to leave and calls the guards to take him away.
Sharina and Desa go to the cashier. Sharina asks the lady if she could get an extension of the payment due for her sister and Desa adds that they will surely pay, it’s just that they do not have any money right now. The cashier ask who the patient is and checks. She tells them all bills for Monica has been paid.
Desa, “Baka dumating si Nelson…” But the cashier tells them the one who paid isn’t named Nelson. It’s Benjie Castor. Sharina is shocked, “Si Benjie?”
Desa goes to guilt-trip Sharina, “Pinagtabuyan mo, pinahuli sa guard, pero siya pala tumulong para makabayad dito sa ospital.”
Sharina now realises why Benjie approached her, “Kaya nya ako gustong kausapin.” Sharina is now confused and asks Desa, “Bakit ganoon, kahit ipinagtatabuyan ko siya, di siya sumusuko. Bakit ganoon?”
Desa tells her, “Alam mo na siguro ang sagot diyan. Mahal ka ni Benjie. At nararamdaman ko na mahal mo din siya.”
Sharina tries to harden her heart, reminding herself that all this wouldn’t have happened if not for Benjie in the first place. “Si Benjie ang dahilan ng lahat ng ito.”
Desa looks at the bright side, maybe if Monica finds out that Benjie helped them pay the bills, she will forgive him. Sharina hopes for the same outcome, “Sana.” She is caught in the middle between Monica and Benjie but she is sure that if she were to pick one, she will choose Monica over anyone.
Monica stirs, wakens. Sharina hugs her. Both sisters in tears.
Benjie is at the bell tower. He recalls how Sharina was angry at him, calling him a liar and a con man. He also remembers himself as Arlan, when he was a guide. He recalls how he felt sorry for Sharina when she almost got raped. Then he remembers their kiss and his punishment. He feels confused. Then he sees an old mirror and looks at it. “Bakit sa dinami-dami ng katawang mapapasukan, kahit ito pa? itong katawang ito na pumatay kay Junic? Bakit ikat pa?”
He points at his reflection on the mirror, “Ikaw si Benjie. Di ako si Benjie, ako si Arlan!” Then he gets an idea, “Ako si Arlan.” He recalls how Sharina has a portrait of him when he was still Arlan. He leaves quickly.
Junic is thankful that Monica is now awake. He tries to touch her and Monica actually felt it. She tells her sister, “Ate parang may humawak sa mukha ko. Naramdaman ko mainit.” She felt something warm on her face.
Sharina dismisses it, telling her that she just might feel hot after being in bed for so long. Junic tries to butt in, “Ako yon!” But no one hears him.
Sharina tells her sister how she was so worried about her and how she promised that if Monica wakens, she will shower her sister with love and attention. “Di mo lang alam kung gaano ako nag-alala sa iyo. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, kapag nagising ka na, babawi ako sa iyo.”
Sharina apologises to her sister too. “Monica, patawarin mo ang ate ha? Di totoo na di kita mahal dahil mahal na mahal kita. Huwag ka na magalit sa ate ha?”
Monica also apologises to her sister, “Di naman ako nagalit, nagtampo lang. Wala na yon, dahil alam ko na mo ko pababayaan. Saka ate, sorry. Sorry naglayas ako dahil nasaktan ako at sa ate, ang laking gastos nito, pasensya ka na.” She admits the operations must have cost Sharina all her money so she apologises for that too.
Desa butts in “Huwag ka na mag-alala Monica, bayad na lahat, binayaran na ni Benjie.”
Monica gets upset hearing his name, “Si Benjie?” She cannot possibly accept this. “Baka isipin non, bayad na rin siya sa mga kasalanan niya sa akin.” She asks Desa and Sharina how they could allow this to happen, “Bakit ninyo pinayagan? Di naman kayo nag-iisip…” [Tanga ka Monica, paano sila magbabayad eh dahil sa kakadrama mo napuslitan na kayo ng mag-ina!]
She tries to remove her tubes and wants to go home, “Uwi na lang ako, ayaw ko na dito.” [Buti pa nga mamatay ka na, kakainis ka!]
Sharina tries to stop her. Telling her to stop what she’s doing. [Desa kasi eh, you and your big mouth!]
Benjie caught up with Sharina asks her if they could talk. Sharina tells him she knew about his deed, paying for Monica’s bills. She wants to know how much was the total bill so she can pay him back.
Benjie tells her there is no need but she insists. She will pay him as she does not want to owe him anything. “Ayaw kong magkaroon ng utang na look sa iyo.”
Sharina goes inside the elevator. Benjie follows her. She tells him to stop following her. “Huwag mo akong susundan dahil tapos na tayo.”
The elevators goes but suddenly, the lights go off. When the emergeny lights come on, Sharina is hugging Benjie. [ahahahay! Well, yan ba ang tapos na?]
Elsa is talking to a woman who is going over Sharina’s house. They agree on payments and would settle everything the next day. Ginella asks who the woman was and Elsa tells her that woman is buying the house. Ginella asks why they are selling the house.
Elsa explains, “Kung dito pa rin tayo titira, baka may habol pa ang magkapatid. Ibenta na lang para walang habol.” Then adds, “Bumili na lang tayo ng bagong bahay.” Mother and daughter smile evil smiles.
Sharina takes her hand off Benjie’s chest, explains, “Pasensiya na, natakot kasi nasira ang elevator.” Benjie tells her maybe the elevator broke down to allow them a chance to be alone and talk.
Sharina comments that at this point it seems she has no other choice but to have that talk.
Benjie gets straight to the point, “Sharina, di ako ang pumatay kay Junic.” He tells her, “Di ako si Benjie, ako si Arlan.”
He asks her if she remembers the night she almost got raped, “Andon ako dahil isa akong sundo.”
Sharina asks, “Ikaw si Arlan?”
Abangan: Sharina’s house got sold!
