Meanwhile, Philip (Paulo Avelino) is the hottest bachelor in town engaged to be wed to Vivian. However, a scandalous revelation tears the three characters' worlds apart. Time passes by and the supposed bride becomes the lover and the supposed lover is now the bride. What's more, the former bride (Vivian) becomes a fearfully revengeful lover who is relentless in her quest to get her ex-fiancé back.
