Nagita’s novel Candy Candy Final Story has inspired many fanfictions and one of them is this wonderful story written by Alexa called “The One I Love Belongs to Somebody Else“. This is the perfect fic for Candy-Terry fans who have longed for their reunion after enduring so many years of separation!
“I had experienced many painful separations.
However, as long as we are alive, we can see each other again.
That is why I no longer fear separations.”
(Candy’s Retrospection, Volume 1, Chapter 2, pgs. 230-235)
Alexa also hired a professional animation studio “Altabe” to draw and animate a special and romantic scene in the story. You can watch the short animation clip at Terry Grandchester’s Facebook page and hear our handsome Terry speaking in a sexy British voice for the first time– in English!
Terry: “Look, Candy! This is like the night when we first met.”
Terry: “¡Mira Candy! Esto es muy similar a la noche en que nos encontramos por primera vez.”
Terry: “Regarde, Candy! C’est comme cette nuit où nous nous sommes rencontrés.”
Terry: “Let’s get married here, tomorrow.”
Terry: “Casémonos aquí, mañana”.
Terry: “Marions-nous demain, ici, sur ce bateau.”
Candy: “Get married here? Tomorrow? Can we do that?”
Candy: “¿Casarnos aquí? ¿Mañana? ¿Podemos hacerlo?”
Candy: “Nous marier, ici? Demain? Est-ce possible?”
Terry: “The ship’s Captain. He has the authority to officiate a wedding while at sea.”
Terry: “El Capitán del barco tiene la autoridad para oficiar una boda mientras estamos en el océano.”
Terry: “Le commandant du bateau. Il a l’autorité pour officier un mariage en mer.”
Terry: “What do you say? Let’s do it?”
Terry: “¿Qué dices? ¿Lo hacemos?”
Terry: “Qu’en dis-tu? Es-tu partante?”
Candy: “Are you sure?”
Candy: “¿Estás seguro?”
Candy: “En es-tu sûr?”
Terry: “I don’t want anything or anyone to ever come between us again.”
Terry: “Yo no quiero que nada ni nadie se interponga entre nosotros de nuevo.”
Terry: “Je ne veux plus jamais que l’on s’interpose entre nous deux.”
Terry: “I love you.”
Terry: “Te amo.”
Terry: “Je t’aime.”

Alexa also wrote a spin-off sequel to this fanfiction called “The Rose of Anzio“! Set against the backdrop of WWII in Chicago, Tessa Graham, the daughter of Candy and Terry is sent by her parents from England to live under the roof and security of Albert Ardley’s family in America. There she meets Anthony, Albert’s son, but their relationship is from being smooth and friendly as they both struggle to forge their own paths under the threat of World War II.

For copyright reasons, any story elements and characters associated to Candy Candy have been removed. Tessa and Anthony are such a captivating couple that they truly deserved to have their own unique love story told beyond the Candy Candy universe. More than an epic romance, this highly researched story also draws you in with the realistic war scenes and dramatic lives of its strong supporting characters, one of whom is Jesse, a handsome and charismatic medic who is secretly vying for Tessa’s heart.
