Yeah, that's "Oath II" ... I've looked at the code and tested the chat, and it gives me a heart ... Is it possible you just clicked real fast and missed the pop up?
You only get to pick a fight with Amukiki (trigger the dialogue with Loren) if you've got at least 1 heart, so that could not be the catalyst to the accidental romance. You only get a heart from the post-krul chat if you have at least 1 heart, so again, a choice was made down the line in your playthrough to romance him (I'm assuming the Oath II chat since you thought it didn't give you a heart). I'm relieved at your account, since I know I've put in a good effort to keep romances optional. If by accidental, you meant "easier than I thought it would be" then you'd be right, but I'm not sure I wanna fix that.
And: I laughed.
