“Bette, don’t talk like that. You don’t mean that.” Tina says as she dries her tears. “I still consider you my family Bette.” Tina adds.
“And me you, but having you here, knowing that I can’t have you, it will set me back. You’ve chosen a different life, a different woman. I can’t be around you, my heart will break every time I see you. Hell, it’s difficult enough talking to you now.” Bette says as she cries.
Tina is silent for a few moments.
“I’m sorry Bette.” Tina says softly. “Can I ask how Angie is taking this?” Tina asks.
“She’s scared and she’s been hanging around me all the time. Scared to let me out of her sight. We went to a spa hotel this weekend and treated ourselves to some luxury treatments.” Bette says with a smile, remembering their weekend.
“Oh, I bet she enjoyed that.” Tina replies with a smile.
“Yeah, we both did. I should go, they’re coming to get me for some tests soon.” Bette says, hoping to wrap this call up.
“Bette, how serious is this?” Tina asks carefully
“It is pretty serious. They told me to get my papers in order just in case. They don’t know how I will be until after I wake up. I might need to learn how to speak again, how to walk again. They don’t know if my personality will change. Everyone is different in their recovery. They will attempt to take the whole thing out. After, I will need to have radiation or chemo. The doctors will decide which treatment will be best after they see the results of the operation.” Bette shares.
“Oh my God, Bette. I won’t be able to think about anything else now.” Tina says while feeling a pain in her gut, the thought of Bette dying and she’s not there with her. She’s surprised by what she feels.
Bette again hear a voice in the background on Tina’s end.
“Babe, what is taking you so long?” Bette hears and assume is Carrie. Tina covers the mic on the phone and lets Carrie know she’ll be right there and ushers her out before she continues the phone call with Bette.
“Bette? Sorry about that.” Tina says.
