Drabble: Not Enough

Title: Not Enough

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Diane

Rating: G

Spoilers: Out of Time

Summary: Sometimes loving someone isn’t enough.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: For the prompt ‘Let Her Go’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Owen had only known her a few days, but he’d fallen head over heels for Diane. She was a remarkable woman, especially considering the time she was from, where women were still expected to be dutiful wives and homemakers.

She was different. Her self-confidence, independence and pioneering spirit drew him like a moth to a flame; it was inevitable that he’d get burned.

He loved her, and though she said she felt the same, it wasn’t enough to make her stay.

Despite begging and pleading, even offering to go with her, he had no choice but to let her go.

The End


When I saw this "the world is not enough" was on the radio. Poor Owen, wanting whom he can't have. So sad.
That was a coincidence!

Yes, Owen knew Diane was too independent for him to change her mind, there was no way she would stay. The world had opened up for her and she wanted more than Owen could offer.

Thank you.
Poor Owen .... but she was not meant to him at all.
Yes, Owen fell so hard for a woman who wanted to be free.

Thank you.
And having to let her go broke Owen, such a tragic love story. great drabble.
He was just starting to pick himself up after Katie, and the first woman he falls for rips his heart out. He really wasn't any luckier in love than Tosh was.

Thank you.
Aww poor Owen. I would hug him, if I thought he'd let me!
He can be a bit prickly about things like that, but I bet he'd allow it in private. Everyone needs a hug sometimes, even those who pretend they don't.

Thank you.
It's sad.
But If He love....
Yeah, poor Owen. He loved and lost her, now he has to pick up the pieces of his heart again.

Thank you!
