The following Saturday evening, Tina’s house. Bette and Tina lie together on the couch watching a movie. Bette lies on her back and Tina curled up alongside her with her head on her chest. Tina’s phone sits on the coffee table, regularly beeping as messages keep coming through. Tina notices Bette’s attention on the phone and she smiles and tightens her hold around her waist.
(Tina) It’s Alice
Bette raises her eyebrows.
(Bette) Oh, really? Why’s she hassling you?
(Tina smiles) She’s pressuring us to go out with them tonight. I assume she’s tried you already and hasn’t had any luck?
Tina raises her chin, meeting Bette’s eyes.
(Bette) I don’t know actually, I haven’t checked my phone all day
(Bette) Do you want to go out with them?
Tina smiles and shakes her head.
(Tina) No. I’d rather just do this
Bette smiles and runs her fingers through her hair.
(Tina) If that’s OK with you
(Bette smiles) That’s OK with me
The next day, Bette and Tina have relocated to Bette’s house and have spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool. They have retreated inside to make lunch and they chat to each other as they arrange various items onto a platter set out on the island bench.
(Bette) So, it’s New York first and then Toronto?
(Tina nods) Yes, a few days in New York and then the film festival
(Bette) You’ve been before I assume?
Tina smiles and nods.
(Tina) Yeah, many times actually. I love it
(Bette) I would have thought you might send someone more junior, at least for the whole festival
(Tina) Yeah, usually. A lot of the other executives will just fly in and out for different meetings, but I just really enjoy it, so I’ll stick around
(Bette) What is it about it that you like so much?
(Tina) I guess I want to hold onto some of what drew me to the industry in the first place, and the atmosphere and excitement of these festivals is definitely one of those things
Tina shrugs and Bette smiles at her. They finish their meal and then return to the pool, enjoying the water and then lying together on a sunlounger. Tina lies back and Bette alongside her with her arm across Tina’s stomach.

Nothing like being apart to make lovers increase their desire to be with the other… Tina is giving in to her natural responses and calling Bette “baby” and “babe”. Bette has been calling her “T” for sometime now. This is the subconscious leaping out from time to time and reflecting what Tina actually thinks of Bette. Her desire to see Bette the moment she gets to LA and not wait another day is also indicative of the her desire to be with Bette.
Looks to me like the boundaries are really beginning to blurr. Just a matter of time to ditch the lines and rules altogether.
Thanks for the chapter…
Thanks, Nice Post. I found myself grinning most of the way through.
Look forward to more.

The boundaries are a mess and I love it.
