AU - Last Tango in Holby City - Continued Caroline and Serena meet again -this time to discuss the feelings they are both trying to suppress for colleagues they’re trying to avoid. Very hard. It must be said that Caroline is trying quite a bit harder than Serena. However, Caroline obviously doesn’t give up easily. They probably ended up drinking a bottle of wine afterwards. One each as Caroline is more a white wine kind of a girl, and Serena doesn’t like sharing her precious Shiraz -except with Bernie of course. Caroline points this out of course, and Serena pouts with her face half-hidden in a wineglass.
“It was justa flirtation- a mistake- a-” “Give it up Caz” “No, really I don’t-” “Yes, yes. You don’t like her and I didn’t kiss my colleague and best friend.” “Yes…. But you two are practically married.” “…”
AU - Last Tango in Holby City - Continued Everyone has gotten over their
sapphic angst -everyone except Kate, she was fine from the start. Now, after
finally finding a gap in all the schedules, a double-date has been planned. The
double-date was obviously Kate’s idea, but Bernie was secretly very involved as
well- not that she’d every admit that to Serena. During the planning of the
infamous double-date, Bernie has been going on about how nice it would be to
have a week-end of together with Serena, as they’re always busy. Kate, with the
assistance of Caroline, has planned a week-end for them as an anniversary gift
-allowing Caroline to find out what Kate would like. Serena tries saving her
blushes by complaining about how she was planning to relax in the bath all
week-end and “guzzle Shiraz until I can’t find the bottle anymore” ; not that anyone is falling for it. Caroline even
threatens to buy up all the Shiraz in town if she refuses, which Kate thinks is
a marvellous idea and gives Bernie a good giggle. They end up discussing their
respective ex-husbands. John is a major source of entertainment of course, with
Bernie threatening to set Serena on her husband being a close second. Caroline
dryly comments that Marcus had much more success setting Serena on Bernie, as
Bernie turns bright red Kate adds “not so macho now”.
I didn’t want you to find out later. From someone else. And think there was any more to it than there was. Because there wasn’t. There really wasn’t. It was one of those things you do and afterwards you go, “Why did I do that?” And the truth is… I was pissed.
“One of my most unexpected friendships came when I met Sarah Lancashire. I think we drive directors mad because we’re always talking right up until they shout “Action!” Then they shout “Cut” and we’re talking again!” - Nicola Walker ↳ Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker in ‘Last Tango in Halifax’
