Tina laid next to Bette listening to the familiar sound of Bette’s slow breathing while she slept. After their talk, it had been rather funny how sheepishly Bette admitted she had forgotten to book a hotel room. Tina had insisted that Bette stay with her and Angie. Bette was hesitant to accept at first and when they got to the hotel room things were a bit awkward. Exhaustion helped them both quickly move past their inhibitions and move into familiar positions when they settled in bed to go to sleep. Tina had edged herself tentatively closer as Bette reached around pulling her into a spoon position. Tina happily took Bette’s hand and brought it close to her heart. Tina reflected how it seemed both took pleasure in having the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with each other in an intimate manner, but neither had to voice the need to wait for any further physical intimacy. Tina had quietly smiled to herself, not knowing Bette was doing the same as they closed their eyes and drifted to sleep. Tina thought about the conversation they had late into the night, not realizing how late it was until they were told the restaurant was closing. The honesty, the openness and how it was clear they had both reached a point of understanding that allowed for the forgiveness of themselves and of each other. This was the emotional nourishment that they both needed from each other and it would be the lifeblood of their new relationship. Tina thought both seemed more at peace, but she wasn’t surprised that Bette was struggling with trust issues. She always knew that would be the biggest obstacle to a complete commitment. Tina knew now more than ever that she needed to stay close and continue to show her devotion to Bette no matter how long it took. Tina started feeling warm and then she felt the sweat building on her forehead. Dam, she thought, fucking hot flashes. She slowly untangled herself from Bette, trying not to wake her with her movement and the heat radiating from her body. Tina watched as Bette slowly opened her big expressive brown eyes. ”Good morning,” Tina said with a warm smile. ”I tried not to wake you.”
