Nanay's death.
Benjie's mother died and this caused him to fall apart. Mike being concerned, offered himself as a friend to lean on.
"Invite him to share apartment with me? If he says yes, I would have - we would both have - the chance to deepen our relationship. If he says no, let it be. I'm used to living alone anyway."
"This is my plan: I would ask if it's possible for me to share his apartment. If he says yes, then I would be able to really determine what I want - and what we want - to happen to our relationship. If I want to live with him for a long time. If I love him, too. If not, we'll still be friends."
