Hopeless romantics gushed at Ryan's articulate recounting of their budding romance's early days, narrating it as if he was telling the story to his children, just like the rest of his #StoriesForLucho entries.

On Monday, June 3, he wrote in heartwarming detail how they "started to get to know each other" at the age of 26.

View this post on Instagram I was maybe 26, Mom and I were only really starting to get to know each other. I’d pick her up from 1 of her movie sets, we’d ride a motorcycle thru fog and a thunderstorm just to hang. Not every girl would’ve liked it, Mom just giggled thru shivers, while we were sipping gas station coffees, soaked to the socks in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes, Mom would drop in on me at the rock and roll club I used to own with your Ninong Ramdy. She’d offer to mix drinks and serve beer at the bar for guests along with her other beautiful friends, I don’t think we ever refused. There was also this time, she pitched to help set up at one of my photo shoots. While in the studio hallway talking shop with the fashion editor, Mom comes out, wearing mechanics gloves, all sweaty from adjusting the lights, telling me the set up was ready. I turned to face my editor, her mouth was just wide open, her jaw, we had to scrape off the floor. Apparently, her team had been trying to book her for a cover shoot for months already, and there she was, on a random morning fixing lights for the part time photographer. By this time though, I’ve had my heart broken enough times to know that exciting times fade, I knew it was a must to also be comfortable in silences. Mom hit a very rough patch and wanted to disappear, even just a few days, to breathe. I took her to Lolo and Lola’s and they agreed that it was the best place for her to relax, undisturbed. She stayed, with one of her cousins, in my bedroom since I was 8. There wasnt much, just a big mattress on the floor, a noisy A/C and a wonky CD player you had to whack to get thru old DMB records. I slept in my parents room, as I usually do when I’m home for the weekends. Probably the 2nd afternoon though, I was on the parquet floor, reading a paperback, your aunt had just quietly come in with 3 Frappuccinos, and Mom gets up from under the blankets and pillows. There wasn’t much talk, but I do remember asking her with a sideways glance, “you cool with this?” she said “with what?” “this. this is how quiet and boring it gets with me too.” She just sipped the frap, smiled, and went back to her nap. That’s when I knew Bud. #storiesforlucho A post shared by Ryan Agoncillo (@ryan_agoncillo) on May 31, 2019 at 4:51am PDT

"I’d pick her up from one of her movie sets, we’d ride a motorcycle thru fog and a thunderstorm just to hang. Not every girl would’ve liked it, Mom just giggled thru shivers, while we were sipping gas station coffees, soaked to the socks in the middle of nowhere,” he said.

He also shared how Judy Ann would visit Ryan at the rock and roll club he used to work at with their "Ninong Ramdy." Judy Ann would even offer to help out, mixing drinks and serving beer to guests.

"There was also this time, she pitched to help set up at one of my photo shoots. While in the studio hallway talking shop with the fashion editor, Mom comes out, wearing mechanics gloves, all sweaty from adjusting the lights, telling me the set up was ready," Ryan added.

"I turned to face my editor, her mouth was just wide open, her jaw, we had to scrape off the floor. Apparently, her team had been trying to book her for a cover shoot for months already, and there she was, on a random morning fixing lights for the part-time photographer."

"By this time though, I’ve had my heart broken enough times to know that exciting times fade, I knew it was a must to also be comfortable in silences," he continued.

Ryan then shared how Judy Ann had "hit a rough patch" in the past and wanted to go away, even for just a few days, to recuperate and breathe.

He took her to "Lolo and Lola" (Ryan's parents) upon agreeing that it was the best place for her to relax, undisturbed.

"There wasnt much, just a big mattress on the floor, a noisy A/C and a wonky CD player you had to whack to get thru old DMB records. I slept in my parents room, as I usually do when I’m home for the weekends."

"Probably the second afternoon though, I was on the parquet floor, reading a paperback, your aunt had just quietly come in with 3 Frappuccinos, and Mom gets up from under the blankets and pillows. There wasn’t much talk, but I do remember asking her with a sideways glance, 'you cool with this?' She said 'with what?' 'this. this is how quiet and boring it gets with me too.'"

He ended his story with a simple memory that had left an indelible mark on him since. "She just sipped the frap, smiled, and went back to her nap. That’s when I knew Bud."

In the comment section, Judy Ann also gave a touching reply to Ryan's message. "I remember these moments in full HD," she wrote.

"That mattress.. rainy day rides, gas station moments.. sleeping for 3 days with no phone, and a lot more.. sealed the deal my love... I love you."

Ryan and Judy Ann got married in 2009 and have 3 children, Yohan, Lucho and Luna. – Rappler.com
