(Bette) I decided I wasn’t going to get through this without at least one drink, which I’m not supposed to do at the moment
(Helena) Well I won’t tell anyone
(Bette smiles) Thank you
Helena has a sip of wine and they sit in silence for a while. Helena looks over at her.
(Helena) I do want to say, I understand that you probably feel very awkward towards me. I guess all you really know of me right now is that I was once with Tina. But that was just so long ago Bette
(Helena) I’m a friend. Truly
Bette looks at her for a moment and then nods.
(Bette) OK. Tina said the same, that we’re friends
Helena smiles and nods, and Bette has a sip of her drink. Their attention is then drawn to the rest of their group entering the restaurant. As they both watch them, Bette’s eyes remain fixed on the only unfamiliar member of the group, and she frowns as she watches Sarah help Tina out of her jacket as they all wait to be shown to their table. Helena has a sip of wine and glances over at Bette.
(Helena) You can say what you’re thinking, if you like
Bette continues watching Sarah for a moment and then looks to Helena and frowns.
(Bette) Does she seriously have to look like that?
She looks back to Sarah and shakes her head.
(Bette) For fuck’s sake
Helena gives a small laugh and raises her eyebrows as she watches Sarah across the room.
(Helena) Yes, well, you and I are also both evidence of the fact that Tina has impeccable taste
Bette gives a small laugh and Helena smiles at her. Bette again looks at Sarah across the room.
(Bette) Can you tell me about her?
Helena looks over at Bette.
(Helena) What do you want to know?
(Bette sighs) I don’t know
Bette rubs her forehead for a moment and then looks to Helena.
(Bette) Is she kind? A good person, a good partner?
Helena looks at her for a moment before responding.
(Helena) Have you asked anyone else these questions?
Bette shakes her head.
(Bette) No. I haven’t wanted to talk about her

Wow, what a great chapter. This Bette is very observant. Even though I want them to go further, I hope they stop and Tina has an honest conversation with Sara. Thanks for another chapter.
Always worth the wait!!! “Tina had always have IMPECCABLE taste!” :)
Loved the chapter. Thanks
It’s getting better and better. I love this story so much! Looking forward to more :)
