The next morning was a repeat of the previous one. Tina waking first, making breakfast, and then waking up the rest of her family. She made pancakes today, just when she was putting everything onto the table, both Angie and Bette came walking in hand in hand.
“Morning.” Tina says and smiles as she walks back to the fridge to get out a carton of milk for Angie and the coffee for her and Bette. When she gets back to the table Bette is waiting for her.
“Hi.” Bette says and leans in for a soft kiss.
“Hi.” Tina replies with another kiss. “Okay, let’s dig in. hope you’re both hungry.” She adds.
“These are good mom.” Angie says as she takes another bite.
“I’m glad you like them sweetie.” Tina says with a smile as she herself takes a bite.
At 10:30 Bette and Tina is on their way back to the hospital for the second day of radiation.
Angie had gone off to school right after breakfast, leaving her moms to get on with their day.
Seated in the waiting room, holding hands they’re waiting for the nurse to come get them.
“I wonder when the side effects really will kick in.” Bette says suddenly.
“Don’t know honey, but we’ll be ready for them. I’ll be there with you every step of the way.” Tina says as she looks sideways at her and leans in and softly kisses her shoulder.
“I am still scared you know.” Bette starts, but stops briefly to form the next words. Tina is quick to ask why.
“About what?” She asks.
“About you staying. Really staying this time. That is my greatest fear in all this. I know you love me… But still.” Bette says, almost in a whisper. “For the unknown reasons you’ve left the other times. Since we’re nowhere closer to finding out why. I will still be on my toes if you will, about you leaving. I am sorry to say it Tee.” Bette says and looks over at Tina with a sad face.
“I know Bette. But I’ll be here. I will not leave.” Tina whispers back, softly squeezing Bette’s hand. Just as a nurse comes out and call Bette’s name. “I promise.” She quickly whispers.
