Sa kabila ng naudlot na pagkakamabutihan nila, tila nagparating pa rin ng pagbati si Kris Aquino kay Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, na nagdiriwang ng kanyang kaarawan ngayong araw, May 12.
Sa isang Instagram post ni Kris kagabi, May 11, isang birthday greeting ang ipinarating ng TV host-actress ngunit hindi niya tinukoy kung para kanino.
Ang post ay naglalaman ng quote na ito: "I will always have this piece of my heart that smiles whenever I think about you."
Sa caption naman nito ay inilagay ni Kris: "You admitted to me you still check my IG, so here’s hoping you do get to read this... You made my birthday extremely special & memorable just because you were there... I may not be around, and we’ve distanced ourselves on purpose but nevertheless you do know how I continue to pray for your success, peace of mind & heart, and lasting happiness... Happy Birthday! #may122014 🎂🍝🎈🎉💝🎁😘"
Pagkatapos ay sinundan ni Kris ng mensaheng ito: "I just wanted to say... THANK YOU!"
At saka niya isinulat ang caption na ito: "For the effort, for the friendship & attention, for the intelligent, mature conversation & for being a gentleman... I couldn’t go to sleep without saying THANK YOU for making time for me today. I appreciated it very much. Good Night. 😊😇"
May ilang followers ni Kris ang nagsabing ang mga mensahe niyang ito ay para kay Mayor Herbert dahil ngayong May 12 ang 46th birthday nito.
Hindi rin naman lingid sa kaalaman ng publiko na noong nakaraang buwan lamang ay inamin ni Kris ang pagkakamabutihan nila ni Mayor Herbert.
Subalit tila hindi umusbong ang kanilang pagiging malapit sa isa’t isa sa mas seryosong relasyon.
Sa Instagram post ni Kris noong April 22, inihayag niya na: “We’re not a ’couple’ but we are the BEST OF FRIENDS."
Dagdag pa niya noon, "And in this uncertain world, we’re sure to be FRIENDS FOR LIFE. That’s actually what we started as, it’s where we are most comfortable being, and for whatever tomorrow may still bring, true & lasting friendship is always the best foundation... May I quote my favorite song? ’Thanks to you for teaching me how to live, putting things in perspective. Teaching me how to give, and how to take, no mistake...’ I grew up a lot this 2014 & he had a big role in what I am today. #noregrets #stillbelieveinlove #someday 😇💛💛💛 GOOD NIGHT."
