After singing Happy Birthday to Dana, and her embarrassingly blowing the candles out, Alice grabbed a knife and started slicing the cake. Bette and Tina were standing back behind the crowd who had surrounded Dana and Alice eagerly grabbing at the plates as Alice served them
“Alice went all out for Dana didn’t she?” Tina said wrapping her arm around Bette’s waist pulling her close
“Yes she did. She loves Dana. I haven’t seen her this happy in a long time” Bette said leaning in to Tina’s embrace
“Well I know Dana loves her. She talks about her all the time. I feel like I’m a third wheel when it’s just her and I” Tina chuckles as Shane approaches them smiling with a beer in her hand
“Finally you two got over your stubbornness I see”
They both shrug their shoulders at the same time much to Shane’s amusement “Jesus you two are perfect for each other”. She says taking a sip of her beer
Bette looks at Shane pointedly
“Shane I want you to confirm something for me. And I’m not asking Alice or Dana because I’m not going to get a straight answer out of either one of them”.
“Ok. Shoot” Shane nods at Bette to go ahead
“They knew about Tina living next door to the house I bought didn’t they?”
Shane nods “Yep. They cooked it up over their first date together. Alice was scared you were going to go with the house on Montahue”
Tina chuckled “That’s so sweet though. They were on their first date trying to plan that when they should have been concentrating on themselves”
Bette shakes her head at the thought “Yeah I know. Alice spent all day cutting up every house until we looked at the one next to Tina. I knew something was fishy when she didn’t bitch about anything while we were there. And she was so eager to come with me that day”
Shane nods “They were determined to get y’all close somehow. They figured living next door would at least give you a chance to see each other with Tina being so busy at the hospital and”. Shane stopped when Tina’s pager went off”
Tina sighed “Shit. Speaking of hospital. I’m on call so let me check in ok” she says giving Bette a kiss on her cheek before stepping away
