The following night, Bette didn’t sleep at all. She kept thinking that everything she’s been through the last few months. She has survived, she’s gotten through it. But is this the thing that will break me? She asks herself. Is me losing my hair my breaking point?
She looks over at Tina next to her sleeping, and then back up onto the ceiling. She feels Tina’s hand touching her shoulder. What Bette haven’t noticed is that Tina has woken up, and is now looking up at her. She slowly takes her hand away and push herself up a little and leans in towards Bette.
“What’s up babe. Why are you awake?” Tina whispers as she snuggles in closer.
“Just thinking. Sleep has not arrived at my doorstep yet.” Bette replies back.
“Care to share?” Tina asks.
Bette stays silent for a few more moments. Tina giving her that time to form her words.
“I’ve been laying her and thought about the last few months, how I have gotten through it. You’ve been a huge part of that. But I’ve gotten through it, with my psyche fairly intact. But this” She starts pointing at her head. “Is this the thing that will break me?” Bette asks as she starts to cry.
“Oh babe. This too will only make you stronger. It’s okay to feel a little down after such a big change. But this will also make you stronger. You will get something out of this also, and you’ll come through to the other side stronger. I know your hair is a big part of who you are, but it will grow back babe.” Tina says as she snuggles closer and leans in a place a soft kiss on Bette’s cheek. “I love you.” She adds in a whisper.
They stay silent for a few minutes.
“This was a heavy talk at…” Tina turns slightly to check the bedside clock. “4.30 in the morning.” She finishes with a little chuckle.
“Yeah, sorry.” Bette replies.
“Don’t be sorry babe, you are entitled to feel however you want or need. And I’m here to support you in any way I can.” She says.
A few more silent moments between them until Bette speaks.
“There is a few positive things though, from this.” She says and points to her head.
