    Chapter 11

    The next afternoon, Bette is sitting at her island bench reading the paper. The doorbell rings and she makes her way to the front entrance, opening the door to Tina. They hold each other’s gaze for a moment and Bette leans on the door frame and smiles at her.

    (Bette) So you’ve stopped using your key altogether have you?

    Tina smiles.

    (Tina) I’m not staying here anymore, it doesn’t seem appropriate

    (Bette smiles) I see

    They hold each other’s gaze for another moment and Bette then takes a step back and Tina steps inside. As Bette closes the door behind them Tina reaches into her handbag to retrieve her key, and Bette smiles and shakes her head.

    (Bette) Tee I’m not taking your key off you

    Tina raises her eyebrows and Bette shrugs.

    (Bette) It still might come in handy. Hold onto it

    Tina looks at her uncertainly as Bette gestures down the hallway, and they make their way through the house together. They arrive in the kitchen and turn to each other.

    (Bette) Would you like something to drink? A wine?

    (Tina nods) Yes, that sounds nice actually

    Bette nods as she makes her way over to the cabinet.

    (Bette) Well head to the couch, I’ll be over in a second

    Bette pours Tina’s wine and makes herself a tea, and then moves to the lounge to join her. She places the drinks on the coffee table and then hands Tina her wine as she sits down alongside her. They settle into silence for a while and Tina has a sip of wine, and Bette then looks over at her.

    (Bette) You’re wanting to talk about last night, I imagine

    Tina raises her eyebrows and they smile at each other.

    (Tina) Yes, we need to talk about it

    Bette nods. They fall into silence again, and Bette examines her for a moment before speaking.

    (Bette) Do you regret what happened?

    They hold each other’s gaze, and Tina takes a breath.

    (Tina) I have to regret it Bette

    Bette studies her for a moment.

    (Bette) That’s not really a ”yes” Tee

    Tina looks downwards and smiles. She takes a breath and then raises her eyes to meet Bette’s.

    (Tina) Bette, I’ve been caught up in something here. And I shouldn’t have let that happen

    1. What an interesting turn in this very intriguing story, katynd. Angie’s observations and what she knows about both her parents’ recent and past feelings to each other are important pieces of the puzzle. Hopefully, we’ll find out what really happened between Bette and Tina before the accident and if there’s a chance those hurts can eventually heal and they can rebuild their present-day relationship. I loved Bette and Angie’s wordless but very emotional reunion and Tina joining the emotional family hug.❤ Thank you so much for this lovely, well-written gem, katynd!❤ I don’t even remember the last time I was able to leave a comment to any of your stories but please know that I always read your stories and look out for a new chapter. Before I checked out this latest chapter, I was enjoying rereading “Political Persuasion”. God, I love that story!❤ So many thanks again and enjoy the rest of the day, katynd!:)

      • Couldn’t have said it better!

        I’m dying to know what happened that Bette is supposed to hate Tina.

        Although Bette seems to hate Tina for a long time if we have to believe Tina and their friends, she told Angie a lot about their early years, so the love has been buried deep but never went away.

        I really hope that when Bette get her memory back they can rebuild their friendship and their relationship.

    2. I didn’t expect that relavation at all! Wow. So Tina keeps her true feelings to herself because she thinks Bette doesn’t like her, Bette tells everyone that she hates Tina. Seems like Angie and Bette have a lot to talk about. I hope that Angie will give Bette more insights to why she “officially” pretends to have moved on from Tina. Maybe she can tell her about her absent girlfriend as well.
      Angie could be the key to change her mother’s relationship for the better. Love it!

      I’m repeating mysef but this version is so so so good. Really can’t wait for the next chapter.
