Brooklyn – Tina’s apartment – Saturday 6:00 am.
Complying with Bette’s request, Tina sat on the bed at her side listening through the spiker of the phone to the crying voice of her sister.
Bette: “calm down, Louise, tell me again what happened”
Louise: “I showed the picture to my mom, and she changed, she had a crisis, I tried to calm her, it worked for a little while, but after a few minutes she started screaming again and I had to give her a tranquilizer, then, she woke up around 2:00 am crying and shouting, it was very sad and scary, I brought her to the clinic and called Kit, but she still was out of control”
Tina: “how is she now?”
Louise: “hi Tina, Kit gave her a strong sedative, but she’ll wake up any moment and will cry again”
Bette: “did she say anything about the picture?”
Louise: “yes, she recognized Buckley and said much nonsense…, you better come here”
Bette: “we’ll be there as soon as possible”
Louise: “by the way, Kit knows about the picture, I had to tell her that I was curious to know if my mom knew that woman”
Bette: “does she know I gave it to you?”
Louise: “of course, where else could I get the picture from”
Tina: “can I come too?”
Louise: “sure, I don’t think mom will recognize you, she is not even sure of your existence, but it’s important that you’ll be here”
Bette: “perhaps it’s better if Tina remains out of your mom’s eyes, at least for now…, we’ll be there in a few minutes”
After the call ended, Bette and Tina looked at each other.
Bette: “it wasn’t a good idea, after all, to show the picture to Mabel”
Tina: “do you think she recognized Buckley from Santa Martha?”
Bette: “I bet she did, and perhaps Mabel was aware of her relationship with Miranda”
Tina: “we don’t know if there was a relationship between them or perhaps everything was in Buckley’s mind”
Bette: “yeah, you right, let’s take a quick shower and go to the clinic”
Lenox Hill – Hart clinic – eighth floor – room 823 – Saturday, 9 am.
Bette and Tina finally arrived at the clinic, even though the road was free of traffic, the shower wasn’t as quick as they intended; anyway, here they are in Kit’s office along with Louise and Kit.
