“I feel the same way.” Tina replies, smiling brightly at Bette, her eyes shining from the unshed happy tears.
They stay at the table after they finished eating, just talking about all and nothing. Bette felt a little better after having eaten so she wanted to stay up and seated, they moved into the living room to sit a little more comfortable. They both forgot about the time when suddenly Angie comes through the front door.
“Moms, I’m home.” She calls out, throwing her backpack at the bottom of the stairs and then walks into the living room. She sees her moms sitting facing each other, holding hands and in a good mood.
“Hi sweetie, did you have a good day at school?” Tina asks with smile.
“Yeah.” Angie replies. “What about you guys? How did the radiation go?” Angie asks as she takes a seat on the table in front of her mom’s.
“It was okay. I was nauseous after, but right now, I’m okay.” Bette replies.
“Okay, good.” Angie says. “And how are you both doing?” Angie asks as she looks from Tina to Bette with a growing smile on her face.
“We’re good sweetie.” Tina replies as she looks into Bette’s eyes.
“Yeah, we’re good.” Bette agrees.
“That’s also good. I have some news.” Angie says with a big smile on her face.
“Oh? What sweetie?” Tina asks.
“Well, I got a job.” Angie says with an even bigger smile.
“You got a job?” Bette asks surprised.
“Yeah, I figured it was about time, right?” Angie says, looking from mama B to mama T.
“Well… What kind of job?” Tina asks.
“It’s nothing fancy, but there’s this advertising company, you know the one we pass on our way to school? At the bottom of Silver Hill road?” Angie says, waiting for her mothers to remember.
“Yeah, yeah. I know that place.” Bette says.
“Yeah, so I went in today and asked if they had a job for me. I told them about me, who I am and what I want to educate myself in at college and so on, and they said I could intern there after school 3 days a week, answering the phone, do some filing, copying and so on. And they said that in between the phones and the filing I could watch and learn how they work. They even have a 3D designer there.” Angie says with enthusiasm.
“Wow, Angie. I’m so proud of you.” Bette says and reach out for Angie’s hand.
“Me too Angie. So, so proud.” Tina agrees with a big smile.
“Thank you. I am really excited. The pay is not great, but I think the experience is worth a lot. And I am able to put it on my resume.” Angie adds with a big smile.
“It’s great Angie. So when will you start?” Tina asks.
“Since it’s already Thursday, they said I could start Monday, and we would set a schedule then. I am to bring my school schedule and we will work around that, so it won’t interfere with my schoolwork and homework.” Angie replies.
Tina gets up from the sofa and bring Angie into a big hug.
“So proud of you sweetie. Love you.” Tina whispers as she squeezes a little extra.
“Thank you, mom.” Angie whispers back.
“How about some celebratory dinner?” Tina asks.
“I could eat.” Angie replies.
“Me too.” Bette says as she also stands up and gives Angie a big hug.
