My Beloved Episode 31 – The One with the Feng Shui
Aired in the UAE last 27th March 2012
Sharina asks Benjie, “Ibig sabihin hindi ikaw si Benjie, ikaw si Arlan?” He nods, hoping Sharina will see the truth. “Naparusahan ako, ginagamit ko lang ang katawan ni Benjie. Isa akong sundo.” He explains how this came to be.
Sharina looks as if she’s getting it, “Kaya mo ba nakikita si Junic?” Is that how he can see dead people like Junic? Benjie nods again, “Oo.” Getting somewhat excited that Sharina understands him.
But no. Sharina tells him, “Eh sira ka pala eh!” Not buying his explanation.
But Benjie urges her to understand, “Nung muntik kang ma-rape, nung sa bus, nung naaksidente ka, nandun ako, ako ang nagligtas sa iyo!”
Monica’s bestfriend Lucy is back who doesn’t waste time reprimanding her, “Pumunta lang ako ng probinsiya pagbalik ko, ganyan ka na!” Monica blames what happened to her on Benjie and her sister [Kaloka ang kakitiran ng utak nitong si Monica!]
Desa is quick to defend Sharina [buti ba tong si Desa], telling both girls that Sharina has cut off any ties she has with Benjie. She ended their relationship for Monica’s sake.
Monica is determined to make Benjie pay for all that he has done, especially for killing Junic. Junic seconds the motion even if no one can really hear him, “Huwag kang mag-alala Monica, pagbabayarin natin siya.”
Sharina has had enough of Benjie’s lies and tells him so, “Tama na. Tigilan mo na ang panloloko mo sa akin.”
Benjie insists, “Totoo ang sinasabi ko.” He is telling the truth. The elevator is back on and the door opens. Sharina leaves but looks back on Benjie, telling him she will pay for whatever expenses he had shouldered for Monica but adds “Huwag ka nang pagpapakita sa akin.” Never show yourself to me again.
Lizette asks Emie when she is going to get married with Benjie but Emie looks doubtful that is ever going to happen. “Puro na lang Sharina.” Lizette tells her sister that if Benjie isn’t interested in her anymore, then maybe it’s time she gives up on him too. Emie doesn’t want to give up on Benjie just yet and tells Lizette she’d better go to work instead of talking to her and getting more despressed with her suggestion.
Rico arrives. He overheard what Lizette was saying to Emie and asks her, “Ako ba pinaparinggan mo?” Lizette doesn’t care much for Rico and tells him, “Eh ano naman ngayon sa iyo?” So what?
Rico tells Lizette he is finally giving up on his chance of him being his girlfriend. He knows that is what she wants, “Yon naman ang gusto mo di ba?” Lizette doesn’t seem to know what she really wants, actually.
Sharina tells Monica that she is indeed going to pay back Benjie so they don’t owe him anything. Monica asks Sharina to avoid Benjie. Sharina tells her she’s ahead of her, “Pinutol ko na ang ugnayan naming dalawa.” Monica sees Benjie and calls him, “Narinig mo yon?” Then he screams at him, “Umalis ka na, di naman kailangan ang tulong mo, umalis ka na!” But Benjie enters Monica’s room, Sharina and Junic alert, ready to defend Monica.
Monica continues her verbal attack on Benjie, “Ano bingi ka, di mo narinig sinabi ng ate ko?” Are you deaf? Didn’t you hear what my sister said?
Benjie speaks, “Wala akong kasalanan.” He is innocent. “Di ba naniniwala ka na nakakausap ko si Junic?” Asks Monica is she believes he can talk to Junic.
Sharina wants Benjie to leave them all in peace and tells him to stop. “Benjie tama na.”
Benjie tries to get closer but Junic stops him. He tells the spirit, “Padaanin mo ako Junic.”
Monica gets angrier, “Ginagamit mo pa si Junic, di mo naman talaga siya nakikita!” [Di ba dapat matuwa ka may nakakakita kay Junic? Di ba sabi mo pa noon, parang anghel kausap mo when you talk to Benjie? Ano na amnesia ka na rin?]
Benjie wants to say more but then decides to leave.
The three girls are talking about the recent scene with Benjie. Desa is impressed about Benjie’s version, “Kumpleto pa sa detalye ha!” She asks, “Kung sundo siya, bakit siya nandito?” Sharina tells them, according to Benjie, “Naparusahan daw siya.” He is here because he was punished.
Tikyo and Benjie are together. Tikoy drinks but Benjie is just depressed. Sad that Sharina doesn’t believe him.
Desa tells Sharina it’s a good thing she decided to avoid Benjie when she did as he appears like he’s not right in the head. She stops and notices how sad Sharina is, guessing right that her friend still has feelings for Benjie.
Sharina hides her true feelings telling Desa she loves her sister and whatever it was she had with Benjie, that is all in the past.
Benjie can’t understand one thing about love, you love someone but you are not happy. Tikyo tells him love is like a hold-up scene. “Kahit magkasundo na ang holdaper at yung hohold-apin, di pa tapos. May pulis pa. Si Monica ang pulis sa inyong dalawa ni Sharina.” He tells Benjie he needs to settle things with the police for him and Sharina to be happy. [Parang may sense na wala lang yung advise ni Tikyo!]
Lizette asks Grace if she has a boyfriend. Grace says she has none. Lizette comments that she and Rico seem to be getting closer, “Panay kasi landian nyo ni Rico.” Tells Grace she and Rico had been flirting often.
Rico arrives with a bouquet of flowers. Lizette smiles asking Rico she thought he’d given up on her but taking the flowers anyway. Rico explains the flowers aren’t for her, they’re for Grace. He tells Lizette that he and Grace have decided to be together, seeing that they get along well. Lizette gives back the flowers, looking shocked as Rico hands the bouquet to a smiling Grace.
Benjie is leaving again when he sees Lola Inday. She seems to have given up on him, letting him do what he wants. “Bahala ka.” Junic catches up with Benjie, knowing where he is headed to, Junic tries to stop him, “Ayaw mo talaga tigilan sina Monica” he punches Benjie who doubles over in pain.
Benjie tries to explain, “Junic alam kong alam mo ang tungkol sa aming mga sundo. Kaya di ako ang pumatay sa iyo.”
Junic stops. Thinks. [weh, makitid lang din pag-iisip nitong si Junic, tanga nga ito eh!]
Junic tells Benjie, “Ikaw ang pumatay sa akin Benjie! Anong sundo? Isa kang tao!” [Di ba nagkakasala ang mga espiritong mapagbintang sa iba? Sunugin nyo nga sa impyerno itong si Junic para mag-meet sila ng killer nya na si Benjie. Di nga nya nakita ang pumatay sa kanya kung maka-akusa kala mo star witness! Gago ka Junic, tanga pa!]
Benjie explains, “Nilagay lang ako sa loob ng katawang ito.”
Junic, stubborn, “Isa kang kriminal!”
Benjie, “Di ako kriminal.” Junic, “Tigilan mo na sila!”
Monica talks to the doctor who is checking her vitals. “Doc Ok na pakiramdam ko, pwede na ba ako umuwi?”
The doctor tells her he needs one more day to make sure everything is OK. Monica is worried they may not be able to pay for all the bills. Lucy suggests “Baka pwedeng utangin?”
Sharina assures Monica not to worry about the bills. She will go when the doctor says it’s OK for her to go. She goes out of the room to contact her aunt Elsa.
But Elsa’s number seems to be off or not answering which worries Sharina. “Saan na ba itong si Tita Elsa?”
Elsa and Ginella are actually at her home, waiting for the buyer to arrive. The buyer comes with a companion, Elsa asks, “Magkakabayaran na ba tayo?” But the buyer says she is not yet ready to pay.
First she wants the house to be checked by a Feng Shui expert, referring to her companion. The buyer comments, “Baka malas kaya nagmamadaling ibenta.” Maybe the house is bad luck that is why they are in such a hurry to sell it. [They in a hurry alright but not because it’s bad luck but because it’s not their property in the first place!]
Elsa acquices to the buyer’s request. Ginella asks why she agreed, maybe they will discover the ghost in the house. Elsa says it’s OK, the person is a Feng Shui expert not a spiritist.
Monica talks to Junic, “Patawarin mo ako kung di ko pa rin nabibigyan ng hustisya ang pagkamatay mo.”
Mikal, Junic’s sundo returns and asks him if he is ready to go.
Junic says no, “Kailangan pa ako ni Monica.”
Mikal says he cannot force him to come but there is only a certain amount of time before Junic can go, after that, he will remain a wandering soul in the mortal world. [Wow may due date naman pala, hoy Junic, wala ka namang silbi jan, lumayas ka na, pampagulo ka lang eh!]
Junic to Monica, “Gagawin ko ang lahat para protektahan ka.”
Ginella sees Sharina coming and panics, calling her mother. Sharina notices the car outside their gate and asks if they have a visitor. Mother and daughter are at a loss. What to say?
Sharina repeats, “Tita sino po ba ang bisita ninyo dyan?” Curious about Elsa’s visitor. Elsa pulls her out and signals Ginella to go in. Ginella pulls the buyer into the house again.
Elsa tells Sharina it’s one of those people she owes money from. She asks about her other neice. Sharina tells her she needs to get the title of the house so she can get a loan from the bank. Elsa says she’s on her way to the city hall to get it.
Benjie talks to Roan. He complains that no one believes him. He tells the guide that he needs something to convince them that what he is saying is true, that he is Arlan and not Benjie. Roan reminds him he is now Benjie.
Benjie gets upset telling Roan not to call him Benjie. He is Arlan. But Roan calmly reminds him that Arlan is no more. He is now Benjie.
Emie arrives at Lola Inday’s looking for Benjie but the old woman tells her she hasn’t seen her grandson since the night before. Lola Inday shares that Sharina’s sister had an accident so Benjie is probably there.
Emie asks which hospital. Pepay is surprised and asks, “Dadalaw po kayo?” Curious if Emie is going to visit Sharina’s sister. Emie replies, “Di ako ganoon ka desperada.” [Honga, desprada lang plain and simple]
Emie stalks the hospital looking for Sharina and finally see her. Sharina tells her off, making sure she knows she and Benjie had broken up. But Emie is looking for a fight, telling Sharina she must tell that to Benjie and make him leave her alone. There’s a bit of a struggle, Sharina pushing Emie away for her to stop attacking her. “Tama na!”
Emie falls and sees herself bleeding. “Anong ginawa mo sa akin? Bakit ako dinudugo?” She demands of Sharina who tries to help her. [Di ka nga desperada, style mo lang bulok Emie!]
Sharina tries to help her up, “halika na kailanga matingnan ka ng doktor.” [Bait talaga ni Sharina!]
The doctor check Emie who panics asking if she’s got cancer or will she die [overly dramatic ka ha!] But the doctor assures her none of that is going to happen. “Di ka mamamatay. May baby ka lang.” Sharina’s expression changes, knowing who is the possible father. Emie looks pleased, “Bunti po ako?”
Abangan: Benjie seems to want to end his life?
