Their bond is tested when Caloy enters their lives. Caloy has a historical relationship with Marga, but she prefers to keep it platonic. He meets Tessa and they fall in love. Marga changes her mind about Caloy and decides she can win him back.

As Tessa pursues her dream of becoming a fashion designer, Caloy gets jealous of Tessa’s mentor, the wealthy and influential Jaime Laurel, owner of a fashion conglomerate in Asia and America, who invites Tessa to one of his events.

Marga uses Caloy’s jealousy to undermine his faith in Tessa, and in one drunken evening, they spend the night together.

The lives of the three friends collide at the House of Teri launch. But instead of renewing old friendship and forgiving past mistakes, they thread down a path of jealousy, revenge, and obsession: this time including Jaime Laurel, the one person most affected by their history.

At the near end, it is revealed that Jaime was responsible for murdering his foster son Rafa and a master manipulator of the events so far. Tessa and Caloy discover the DNA results revealing Miraculo Policarpio as their biological son Rafael M.

Due to his mental instability, he kidnaps Marga’s son as a bait to get Tessa, which succeeds until the arrival of Caloy, Marga, and the authorities to rescue them.

Eventually, to pay back what she has done to her best friend, Marga sacrifices herself to rescue Tessa from getting shot by Jaime until he was neutralised by the authorities.
