The blonde seems nervous all of a sudden as if reality has set in.
Tina – I … don’t …
She looks up at the brunette with apologetic eyes.
Tina – I don’t date women.
The gallery owner is taken aback by Tina’s comment. She looks surprised and hurt.
The blonde looks down avoiding her inquisitive eyes.
Bette – You mean … you are straight.
They are both silent for a moment.
Tina – Sorry …
Bette – Of course …
She looks disappointed.
Bette – I’m generally … more perceptive. I just felt …
She walks back to her desk and turns around to face the blonde again, feigning a smile.
Bette – It’s actually my second rule … never attempt to date straight women …
Her smile disappears.
Bette – You are in for disappointment.
Tina looks embarrassed.
Tina – I’m sorry.
The gallery owner stares at her sadly.
Tina – I have to go.
She shows the earring in her hand.
Tina – Thank you. It was very nice of you.
Bette silently nods.
The blonde leaves and the brunette sits in her chair looking pensive.
Why had she been so careless with a client’s girlfriend?! She couldn’t remember the last time that she had attempted to date a straight woman, much less one who had a boyfriend. Sure, she had been with straight women … lots of them … but only after they flirted with her and made it clear that they wanted to have fun. Lighthearted, sexy fun … nothing ever serious. She was not about to get burned falling for straight women. Quite frankly, falling for any woman. She enjoyed her freedom.
And she would never have sex with a woman who had a boyfriend at the time. No … never … way too close for comfort! Unless it was just a fuck … no tongue … like the beach girl in the nightclub bathroom many years before. But she was younger then, and a little drunk … and the asshole boyfriend deserved it, after suggesting a threesome. Huh! The girl followed her into the bathroom. A twosome was what she wanted!
No, she didn’t exactly date straight women. So … what was she thinking … attempting to ask Tina out?! She forgot … her own rules, she forgot. After the kiss, there was something pure in the blonde’s eyes … that touched her. A flash … of something … that for one fleeting moment … one magical instant … she wanted for herself. Jesus! What was it?
