Chapter 45 The Gang
Mrs. K. – What did we do wrong?
Tears stream down her face.
Tina – Mom, you didn’t do anything wrong. There is nothing wrong!
Her eyes well up with tears.
Mrs. K. – How can you say that? This is wrong, Tina! How could you do this? We raised you to do the right thing …
Mrs. K. – She is a sinner, honey! And she has seduced you into her sinful lifestyle!
Tina – Not according to our interpretation of God, Mom!
Bette’s backyard, night: Bette and Tina are in a lounge chair after dinner. The blonde is resting between the brunette’s legs and leaning on her chest, holding a beer bottle.
Tina – And I told her that I just wanted her to accept the fact that I have the right to choose whom I love.
She takes a sip of her beer.
The gallery owner looks thoughtful while caressing her arm.
Bette – I hate to be a point of contention between you and your mom.
Tina – Well … if not you … someone else …
The brunette frowns.
Bette – You mean … that if you hadn’t met me … you would fall for another woman?
The producer raises her eyebrows with a half-smile on her face.
Tina – Oops …
Bette – Oops …?
Tina chuckles and turns around with a teasing smile.
Tina – You are …
She caresses the brunette’s face.
Tina – … the only one …
She lands a light kiss on Bette’s chin
Tina – … that I could ever fall in love with.
She gives the brunette a soft kiss on the lips.
Tina – I was just making a point that it is not you, but what you represent.
The gallery owner’s pout fades into a relaxed smile.
Bette – Better than oops … You are not allowed to have anyone else.
The blonde’s face turns serious and she caresses the brunette’s lips with her index finger.
Tina – I love you, baby!
The brunette smiles warmly.
Bette – I love you too, Tee!
The two women gaze into each other’s eyes and fall into a gentle kiss.
A week later
Bette’s backyard, morning: Bette is having breakfast and reading the newspaper when Tina comes in and sits by her side with a smile on her face.
