Tina woke, her mind was racing, the thoughts were overwhelming like they had been the night she had walked away from her family. She got up. Looking back at Bette. She smiled as she wife slept peacefully. Tina walked out of their room. She checked on Xavier and kissed him before she headed downstairs. She opened a bottle of water, taking a long drink. She also took her anxiety meds. She walked out into the studio, opening the doors. She took out a new canvas, she took out some paints. Finding the darker colours.
She took out a brush and stared to paint. Slowly added layers of paint to make the darker spots on the canvas. She lost track of time as she started to get lost in the painting. She hadn’t thought she’d be out here long she just needed her thoughts to stop.
Bette woke slowly, rolling over she noticed that Tina wasn’t beside her. She looked around and saw that the door was closed. She got up and checked on Xavier who was sleeping peacefully. She kissed him and went downstairs,
“Ti,” She said softly.
Bette saw the back door was open and saw the lights were on in the Studio. Bette took a deep breath. she was just glad that Tina hadn’t ran. She walked out and saw her wife painting. She could tell her had been here for while, the painting was taking shape.
“Ti,” Bette said softly.
Tina turned and looked at her wife,
“Hi, B. I’m sorry did I wake you?”
“No baby, how long have you been up,”
“It’s nearly 6am now babe,”
“I’m sorry I’ve lost track of time,”
“Are you okay?”
“No, not really.” Tina admitted. As she put her paint brush down.
Bette walked forward and wrapped her arms around Tina.
“I’m here for you,”
“I know I’m trying not to let the voice win.” Tina whispered.
Bette hugged her. She kissed her wife’s head.
“You’re doing fine.”
“I’m not but it’s nice of you to say so,” Tina said holding her close.
“Right wash up and go back to bed. Jake will be here soon to help me with Xavier. You need to sleep.”
“This piece needs to dry.” Tina smiled softly.
