About an hour later they walk through the door at home. The ride from the hospital was made in silence. Both, deep in thought.
“Tee, I know you said you wanted to talk when we got home, but can we delay that a little bit? I need to lie down.” Bette says as she turns around towards Tina. Tina could see that lack of energy in Bette and walks up to her and wraps her arms around Bette’s shoulders. She leans in for a kiss.
“Off course, your health takes priority above anything else now. But I want you to know, and I will tell you this every minute of every day if I have to. I love you. You are beautiful. I know you struggle with the loss of hair babe, but I do not care, and no one else care either if you have hair or not. When it comes back, I will be here. If it for some reason does not grow back, I will still be here and so will your friends. Hair does not make you who you are babe. Does not make you kind, funny, gentle, romantic and so on. That is in here.” Tina says and places her hand on Bette’s heart. “You have gotten this far. Only 1 week left of treatment and then you are done. Cancer will be gone, and you will be back to your self before you know it. I love you.” She finishes. And then seals it with a kiss.
“I don’t know what I would do without you during this. You have been my rock, my anchor point.” Bette says, tears running down her face after Tina’s words.
Tina just brings Bette into a warm hug. “I love you. Come on, let’s get you into bed.” Tina says and pulls Bette towards the bedroom.
Hours later, Bette wakes up, suddenly needing to vomit. She doesn’t make it to the bathroom on time. And she falls to the floor in the bedroom. “Tiiiinaa?” She calls out. She felt so week, suddenly lost all the strength she had left in her legs.
Out in the kitchen, Tina had set up her laptop to do some work while Bette slept. She is on the phone with her new boss when she hears Bette desperate calling.
