”She seems to be getting better.”
Bette covered Angie with a blanket and ran her hand through her hair, then kissed the top of her head and started to get up from the bed where she was sitting to hold the towel over her daughter’s head. Tina got up from the floor at the head of the bed and picked up an empty tea mug. She leaned over and kissed her daughter’s forehead, which was still cold from the towel.
They left a bottle of mineral water on her bedside table. They didn’t turn off the night light in case Angie got sick again and got out of bed. They didn’t close the door to the room so they could hear all the sounds and be there if they needed to. They left the room and went down to the first floor. None of them were going to sleep.
”You should at least get some sleep, Bette. You have a working day ahead of you.”
”Well, it’s almost 5 am, it hardly makes sense. I still have to get up in an hour. ”
”You’re the boss, you might be late and arrive closer to lunch.”
”I’m the boss, but I’m not an arrogant boss. ”
Bette sat down in the chair next to Tina, serving her tea and sipping from her mug.
”It’s going to be a busy day, a lot to do, and that Gabbone motherfucker is coming to fuck my brain again… God, I would love to stay home today and spend the day with Ange, but… I’ll just try to leave work early as soon as I’ve resolved all the important issues.”
Bette said this quickly and with her head down. Tina knows that this means that the brunette feels guilty and tries to justify her actions. Tina took Bette’s hand and stroked the back of it with her thumb.
”Just solve all the problems at work and get home as soon as possible, okay?”
Tina’s voice was soft and calm. She looked at Bette affectionately.
”She needs us both now. And it’s good that she speaks about it in direct text, although she doesn’t quite choose the words. So all is not lost and she just needs more love and understanding from us. ”
