Her cousin Stella (Amy Austria) advised her to abort the baby but she disagrees. Carmen also told it to Jerry and also advises her to do the same. She also has a patient suitor Bobby (Rowell Santiago), but Carmen does not want to depend on him.
On the other hand, Juling (Charito Solis), Carmen’s landlady advises her to let the child live. Juling is a devoted born-again Charismatic but wants the informal settlers in her lot to leave so she can build a church there.
