Barbara Rosales (Carmi Martin) arrived at their enormous villa to find her stepsister Corazon Rosales (Cherrie Pie Picache) with her ex-boyfriend Edgardo Perez (Julio Diaz) talking to Corazon's father and Barbara's stepfather as he gave them his blessings regarding their relationship. Barbara was furious after Gardo chose her stepsister over her and begged him to rekindle their romance in exchanged of her, changing her old ways for him. But Gardo refused, and expressed he loved Corazon because she knew how to love unlike Barbara who only loved herself.

Bound to get her revenge, Barbara resorted in a series of schemes against her stepsister Corazon. But the secret won't be kept for long when her stepfather learned what she was doing to his only daughter that's why he threw her out from the house.

Barbrara met Julio Juico, her landlord. Widow, with a young son Rafael Juico (Bobby Andrews) who was later be revealed that wasn't his real son but a son of his demised friends, he was easily succumbed to Barbara's charms and gave in.

Now rich because of her new husband's money, she came across Impong Isidra, an old woman who was desperate of help because Julio will soon reclaim his land where her house was. Barbara used her charm to persuade Julio to let Isidra's debts go. Unknown to her, Isidra was a witch and well-trained with black magic.

Upon knowing that Corazon was about to give birth already, Impong Isidra planted a tree, serving as Corazon's daughter's twin. What they will do to the tree, the baby will experience as well, such as when the baby who was named Blanca (Angelu de Leon) was a few months old, they watered the tree with a boiling water, the baby suffered a high fever which was eventually gone after quite sometime, when she was about 10 years old, they cut the tree in one part of it then Blanca suddenly was cut by a knife, and just a few months before her 18th birthday, they stabbed the tree, resulting a nosebleed to Blanca.
