Brooklyn – Tina’s apartment –Tuesday 3 am.
Although the number on the screen was unknown, Bette decided to answer at the insistence of the ringing.
Tasha: “Elizabeth Porter?”
Bette: “who’s calling? Wait a second, is it you, Tasha?”
Tasha: “yes, happy to hear your voice”
Bette: “huh… why? What you mean?”
Tasha: “we were very worried for you”
Bette: “we? Who? I don’t understand”
Tasha: “well, let me explain to you…; a little bit after midnight there was an explosion in your parking garage, it was strong, around 25 cars were affected most of them totally burned, the fire and shock wave affected the adjacent building where you live, some apartments were damaged”
Bette: “wow, I should check mine”
Tasha: “that would be the minor problem, the situation is that the bomb that produced the explosion was set in your parking spot, my people were looking for your car, but couldn’t find it, and as you weren’t in your residence, the officers in charge thought you were dead or hurt in some place, so, they called to your sister because the concierge of the building said that she’s your next of kin and legally entitle to look after your business; I wasn’t here at that time, I just came a half an hour ago and took charge of the investigation, I am going to pass you to your sister, but you must come here for the debriefing, okay?”
Bette was pale; someone has set an explosive to blow her car, perhaps to kill her.
Bette: (astonished) “yes, I will…; let me talk to Kit, and thank you, Tasha”
There was a hubbub on the other side of the line
Kit: “Bette!!! Are you fine?”
Bette: “Kit! Yes, I’m fine, oh my God, what happened?”
Kit: “where are you, baby?”
Bette made silence, she must think, she looked at Tina who was very concerned at her side hearing the conversation.
Tina: (whispering) “you can’t tell her that you’re here”
Bette: (murmuring) “I know…”
On the other side of the line, Kit was waiting.
Kit: “Bette, are you fine?”
Bette: “yeah, I am with someone”
Kit: “someone? Who?”
Tina: (whispering) “shit…, tell her you’re with me”
Bette: “I’m with Tina”
Kit: “thanks, God”
Bette: “I didn’t know it would happen so soon”
