She falls in love with Jaime, a seemingly perfect gentleman, who promises to stand by her. But she soon finds out that he is already married. Heartbroken, all Irene is left with is a living reminder, their son Myko.
After a few years, Irene reconnects with her childhood friend Natoy. They rediscover each other, fall in love and eventually get married. But Irene still hasn't found her happy ending.
