FAKE Double Drabble: Decisions

Title: Decisions
Fandom: FAKE
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Diana, Berkeley Rose.
Rating: G
Challenge: # 55: After All This Time at drabble_weekly.
Spoilers/Setting: Like Like Love.
Summary: Diana decides it’s time to move on with her life, but she’s in for a surprise.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
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.

The End


Ha ha! Cute!

I happened to see an English version scanlation (is that the right word?) of Like Like Love the other day, but it was only 20 pages or so. Was there more to it? I did see the scene of Berkie sweeping Diana off her feet, though, which was great!
Yep, scanlation is right, and no, that's all there is to it as far as I know, at least that's all I've seen. I have it and the other post-manga shorts downloaded to my computer because there's no other way to get them in translation.

I just decided to try to fill in a bit of background from Diana's POV for a change of pace from writing the boys.

Thank you!
*bops Berkeley* Took you long enough to figure it out.
He was too busy looking at everyone else to see who was right in front of him.

Thank you!
