A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
How many years had they known each other? Diana had long since lost count; it sometimes seemed like Berkeley Rose had always been part of her life, just never as big a part as she wanted. She’d been carrying a torch for him practically since they’d met, for all the good it had done; she’d just got burned time and again.
Maybe she should settle for just being friends and find someone else, someone who would love her the way she deserved to be loved, because it was becoming increasingly clear that Berkie would never be hers.
So she moved on, started dating a nice guy who really loved her, so much so that he proposed, which was nice but… Should she say yes and marry someone she wasn’t totally committed to? She wasn’t sure. She did care for him, but was that enough?
Perhaps it would have to be. She’d tell him tonight, on their date.
That was the plan, but it got slightly derailed, by Berkie of all people. He swept her off her feet. Literally.
“After all this time, I finally know what I want; I won’t let another man have you.”
Berkie said the sweetest things.
