“Look Tina, I won’t keep you, go back to your fiancé. I need to go.” Bette says as she wants to end the call as soon as possible.
“Bette please. I don’t know what to say. But I know that I want to see you again. I want to be there for you. You are my family.” Tina tries again.
“Tina, please respect my wish on this. I need to focus on getting well and with you there… It’s too painful.” Bette replies softly.
“I can’t promise you that Bette. If I can’t be there for you, then I’ll be there for Angie.” Tina says.
“Fine, I have to go. Take care Tina.” Bette says as she hangs up the phone before Tina can reply.
In Canada, Tina stays in the room for a while longer. She can’t keep her tears at bay. After a few minutes, Carrie comes back in and sees her fiancé crying.
“Tina, babe, what’s wrong?” Carrie asks as she takes a seat beside Tina.
“I have to go to Los Angeles.” Tina replies, drying her tears quickly.
“What do you mean? We’re in the middle of our engagement party, we have a house full of people.” Carrie says
“I know, and I’m sorry, but I have to go. Shit, I have to book a flight.” Tina says and walks over to her desk and opens her laptop and logs in. Quickly she finds a flight that leave that same night. She looks at her watch and sees that she has 3 hours to pack her bag and reach the airport, which is 1 hour away. So basically, she has 1 hour. She books the flight in a hurry.
“Tina, please stop. You can’t just leave. What’s going on?” Carrie asks, getting frustrated.
“That was Bette on the phone. She told me that she’s in the hospital. She has a tumor in her head, and they are operating tomorrow at noon. I need to be there.” Tina says as she looks into Carries eyes. “Angie is scared and alone. I need to be there, for Angie and for Bette.” Tina adds.
“She’s not your wife anymore. I understand that you need to be there for Angie, but…” Carrie starts, but stops when she sees the look from Tina.
