    After the Kiss: Chapters 1 & 2

    [Bette coolly enters the room, looking handsome in a dark suit. She greets some of the attendees, gives Alice a comforting touch on the shoulder as she passes, then walks over to Tina, who’s looking at a photograph hanging on a nearby wall.]

    Bette: Are you coming to sit down?

    Tina: (smiling) Yeah. I just really like this one.

    [Bette and Tina look at the picture.]

    INT. – PALM SPRINGS HOTEL – SUITE 251 – NIGHT

    [Tina stands in the bathroom, waiting for Alice to finish brushing her teeth.]

    Tina: And then, um… (laughs) And then the earring thing happened.

    FLASH BACK – INT. – BETTE PORTER GALLERY – NIGHT

    [Bette looks at Tina. She smiles as she reaches up to touch Tina’s hair.]

    Bette: (smiling) Oh. You’ve lost your earring in your hair, here.

    [Bette gets the earring out of Tina’s hair and holds it on her palm for Tina to take.]

    Tina: (smiling) Thank you.

    [Bette smiles sweetly at her as Tina takes the earring. They look back at the picture.]

    [ … ]

    INT. – PALM SPRINGS HOTEL – SUITE 251 – NIGHT

    [ … ]

    Tina: Okay. So then, that night I go home and I realize… I left the earring at her gallery even though I could have sworn (brushing teeth) that I put it back on my ear. (chuckling) Call it fate.

    Alice: Or call it the oldest trick in the book.

    FLASH BACK – INT. – BETTE PORTER GALLERY – NIGHT

    [Tina enters Bette’s office. Bette pulls Tina’s earring from an envelope and walks around her desk. She holds the earring out on her palm for Tina to take.]

    Bette: I could’ve sworn I watched you put this back on.

    [They stand very close. Tina smiles, and goes to take the earring. Instead, Bette gently closes her hand on Tina’s and leans in to kiss her. The kiss is sweet and simple, but conveys enough steam to leave Tina blushing when it’s over. Bette smiles and Tina takes her earring.]

    Bette Porter Gallery, morning: After the kiss, Tina looks down. Bette smiles warmly at her and softly speaks.

    Bette – You know, I have this rule … never to ask a woman out that I know is dating someone else. Can you think of a reason why I should break this rule?

      Hi dbff,

      Glad you are reposting this story!

      I think i read it before a long time ago.

      Always a pleasure to read Tibette stories and i am glad several writers come back to keep this couple alive in Fanfic land!

      Nice beginning story. I have read several beginning stories of Tibette but not this one. They all have their individual characteristics and story lines from their meeting at the gallery until they become a couple. Since the bridge from meeting to becoming a couple was never covered in the original series, its wide open for a writers imagination and interpretation. I already like your Tina a lot. Can’t wait to see where you take us on this journey.. Post when you can.

      Hi DBFF:

      Excellent story, very good start, I know there are many stories about the earring, but I know that this one because you are writing it, will be different and especial.

      Poor Bette, she feels that she lost her gaydar, but indeed she didn’t, she felt that Tina was “in” and that was true, the situation is that Tina was perhaps too alienated with the straight life that she thinks she is a straight girl and even has a boyfriend, but her attraction for Bette and the feelings she starts developing talk by themselves.

      Now, is Tina who has to find out what or who she really is and what she wants.

      Bette, as usual, is making her life, but I believe she is very impressed by this Tina Kennard.

      Great story, DBFF, please post soon.
