From Chapter two –
The stewardess brought them each a glass of chilled champagne, and Tina looked at Bette before taking her sip, unsure if this was celebratory or just a nice perk of traveling first class. Big brown, soulful eyes stared back at her. Eyes the color of a forest after a rain, eyes that Tina knew she could drown in. Bette seemed to make a decision, lifting her glass before speaking, “to rebuilding, to the joy of new discovery and… to forgiveness…”
Tina’s eyes glistened and she looked like she wanted to kiss Bette but didn’t think Bette would want to… not now, not here. But Bette made that decision as well, leaning forward slightly, her eyes closing, and Tina met her halfway their lips pressing together after more than two years apart. And it was… everything. She could fall into this kiss, into life with this woman. It was heaven for a brief time, too short and yet had the power to linger for hours, a kiss neither would forget anytime soon. Oh, my fucking God… Bette pulled away, her lips leaving in that slow sexy way she had, like at any moment she would be back for more. Her eyes opened gradually as if she wanted to savor the taste, meeting Tina’s.
Tina cleared her throat for her heart was lodged there, raising her own glass to meet Bette’s. “To forgiveness. To us.”
*** Chapter 3 ***
It was late when they reached Tina’s Toronto apartment, a long wait at the airport for the rental car and then a traffic accident slowing down their arrival. Neither minded, Tina still on a high from the celebratory kiss on the plane and Bette processing how good it felt to kiss Tina after so much time apart. The kiss didn’t last long, seconds really, but she spent a considerable amount of time replaying every detail in her mind.
She could still feel the softness of the blonde’s lips, the way hazel eyes closed slowly… all warring with the fear that permeated her thoughts as they got emotionally closer – mainly, could she ever truly trust her ex-wife again?
Tina drove, Toronto was her city after all, and Bette enjoyed watching her navigate the city, soaring skyscrapers lighting the way. There was something… intriguing about the confident way Tina drove…if by intriguing she really meant sexy. Bette always liked seeing Tina in her element, always found the blonde hot when she was comfortable in her environment, when she commanded her space.
