"Pangako ko, ipaglalaban kita. Hinding hindi kita sasaktan. I love you, Yna. Iingatan ko ang puso mo at pangako sa ‘yo, ikaw lang.”
Yna also promised that she will fight for their love.
“Mahal na mahal din kita Angelo. At kahit na anong pagsubok pa ang dumating, hindi ako susuko. Ipaglalaban kita. Panghahawakan ko ang pagmamahal na mayroon tayo. Ang pag-ibig ko palagi lang sa ‘yo, pangako sa ‘yo.”
