The same night, Tasha, Amanda and Eric step off the elevator and quickly march towards Melvin’s apartment. They round the corner and stop walking when they see Tina about to knock on the door.
Tina drops her hand to her side and looks at the group of agents walking towards her.
Tina: Oh, hi
Tasha: What are you doing here?
Tina: Well I checked at Bette’s and then Kit’s place. Nobody was there so I figured….
Eric: You shouldn’t be here. You need to go home.
Tina: I will, as soon as I know Bette is okay.
Eric shakes his head.
Eric: I’m sure she’s fine.
Tina: Well I’m still not leaving until I know for sure.
Tasha: Tina, you need to go, we don’t know what the situation is. I’ll call you as soon as I know something.
Tina folds her arms over her chest defiantly.
Tina: I don’t care, I’m not leaving
Tasha stops talking when Melvin’s apartment door opens. They come face to face with Robert and his guards. Amanda and Eric both draw their weapons at the same time when Robert’s men reach for their weapons. Tina is standing in the middle, frozen in place unsure what to do.
Eric: Son of a bitch….
Robert:(smirks) Well we meet again
Amanda: Shut your mouth.
Bette pushes past her uncle and his henchmen and walks over to Tina.
Bette: Sweetie, what are you doing here?
Tina: I was worried.
Bette grabs both of Tina’s hands.
Bette: You should not be here. You must take your leave.
Tina: No, why does everyone keep saying that? Are you okay?
Bette: Yes, I’m fine but as you can see things are escalating as we speak.
Tina reaches up and rubs Bette’s face.
Tina: Are you sure you’re okay?
Bette smiles a little at her girlfriend’s concern.
Bette: Yes. Although I would feel much better if you would head home.
Tina: Only if you come with me.
Eric keeps his gun pointed at Robert as he turns and looks at Bette and Tina.
Eric: Yeah can you take that shit somewhere else. We’re dealing with some real shit over here in case you haven’t noticed.
Bette pulls Tina into the apartment, away from the scene that’s currently going on.
