Lenox Hill-Hart clinic Tuesday 11:00 am.
Alice and Kid are in room 402 waiting when Louise shows up.
Alice: “finally you came”
Louise: “I had a patient”
Kit: “we know, but we have to finish before noon”
Louise: “that’s when she’ll be here?”
Louise: “what are we gonna do?”
Kit: “we have to support Tina, but unfortunately Bette is right, we can do anything against Aaron if we don’t have proof and nothing can be done about the selling of the building if we don’t have the forged document with Maxim signature, and of course, we can’t flip the board if we don’t have any of those things”
Louise: (sighing) “I don’t see how we could support her if Bette doesn’t help”
Alice: “I doubt Bette would help her, even if Tina asks”
Kit: “yeah…, Tina’s words were a dagger that broke Bette’s heart…, anyway, I’ll talk to my baby sis”
Louise: “Tina didn’t know”
Alice: “yup but Bette doesn’t understand”
Louise: “I’ll talk to Bette too”
Kit: “don’t…, just let me do it”
Alice: “okay, what should I do?”
Kit: “just ask her how she feels, gave her some alternatives, but overall let her talk”
Alice: “hmm, Helena asked me to assure that Tina will be at the party”
Kit and Louise look at each other with concern.
Louise: (furious) “son of a bitch, Bette Porter”
Kit: “calm down Louise, she is your best friend, and she is not a bad person, leave it to me”
The meeting ended and Alice was left alone in the room, after 10 minutes Tina arrived.
Alice: (opening the door) “hi, Tina, tell me how are things in the branch?”
Tina: “no very good, saving money at the moment”
Alice: “we’re not going to let him downgrade you”
Tina: “it doesn’t matter, I’ll be fine.., please, don’t tell Dr. Porter”
Alice: “too late Tina, Porter is part of the HR table, she receives a copy of any report, and Aaron has sent a report about you”
Tina: “shit…, I didn’t want her to know”
Alice: “don’t worry, she will do nothing”
Tina: “that’s fine…, is she hurt?”
Tina: “I didn’t want to hurt her, but I didn’t have another choice”
Alice: “why did you do it?”
