Chapter 362: Lost Dreams
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 315: Betrayal at dw100.

Spoilers: The Runaway Bride.

Summary: Donna’s dreams for the future have just fallen apart.

Donna had begun to think she’d never find someone to love. She’d watched her friends meet Mister Right, settle down, get married… Some even had kids and here she was, practically an old maid.

Then she’d met Lance and everything had changed; they’d clicked right from the start and it was wonderful. When he’d proposed she’d cried from sheer joy, so much happiness bubbling up inside her that it had to find some way out.

Only now she knew it had all been a lie.

To her surprise, the betrayal hurt less than the loss of her hopes and dreams.
