"No, no, no, no, no, no, no," exclaims Miko. "I'll tellyou right now that's far from what we're [Bea and I are] thinking. Itnever ever crossed our minds. Basta like I said, we're enjoying now.I'm enjoying her company. She's enjoying my company. We want to leaveit as that.

"The feeling is definitely there," Miko says simply. "IfI say that word, I want her to be the first one to hear it from me. ButI definitely care about her a whole lot. I don't know...like I said,things are doing nice now. I don't know...maybe I'll say that tomorrow.Maybe tonight if I see her. I don't know. Bahala na when that moment'sthere.
"I don't wanna take it for granted. And I don't want nasabihin ko lang ‘yon, tapos biglang ano...We gotta be sure about theway we feel," Miko adds.
