This is the fourth of the ten drabble series that I started to write for 's birthday three years ago. Only half completed I recently managed to finish them; out of nowhere it seems to me. I hope to have all ten posted tonight.
TITLE: “Standing in the Shadows of Love.”
CHARACTERS: Nina; Satsu,
WORD COUNT: 100 ,
A/N: “Some days suck and bring bad luck
with troubles by the load.
There's a pothole or a speed bump
every step along the road.
But here's the way I save the day --
I simply think of you.
That burst of sunshine makes me smile
and helps me make it through.
Part Four: “Standing in the Shadows of Love.”
“Tomorrows game's on,” Nina announced to cheers from her class.
Though Satsu's raised eyebrows brought a smile it was obvious how tired she was.
It had to be tough; married as she was to Buffy's first great love.
Satsu's own marriage was hard to avoid; though everyone tried to keep affections discreet.
“Even Andrew's married,” Buffy had joked once in bed.
“Does he know that?” she'd quipped.
Mischievous, Satsu leant in and whispered, “Not playing?”
Nina slapped her wrist.
“Angel may have had his one time, but I'm a happily married mother; so bugger off!”
Satsu smirked, “My intention exactly.”
Goddess watch over us all,
