    Chapter 12

    (Bette) I’d imagine she thinks it’s a date

    (Tina) Well she’d be mistaken. Anyway can we stop this?

    They sit in silence for a moment, before Bette gets up and starts gathering her things.

    (Tina) What are you doing?

    (Bette) What does it look like?

    (Tina) You’re being ridiculous

    (Bette) OK

    Bette continues gathering her belongings  and heads towards the hallstand for her coat. Tina sits for a moment shaking her head before rising and following her. She takes Bette’s coat from her hands and throws it back towards the hallstand.

    (Tina) Stop it

    Tina steps towards her and places her hands on Bette’s hips.

    (Tina) Baby, we’ve covered this, I have zero interest in Abby Richards

    Tina runs her fingers through Bette’s curls.

    (Tina) Can you please come back inside?

    Bette looks at her and sighs.

    (Tina) We never had this problem when we were together

    (Bette) That’s because I trusted you. But trust doesn’t really come into this situation, does it? When we’re not anything to one another

    She looks at Tina.

    (Bette) It’s confusing

    (Tina) I know

    Tina steps closer and wraps her arms around her waist. Her eyes start to glisten as she talks.

    (Tina) Please don’t storm out of here like this. I know it’s confusing, and I know our lines have become blurred. But I want you to stay. Please stay.

    Tina reaches for her cheek and starts laying soft kisses on her lips, talking to her between kisses.

    (Tina) Please baby. Please stay.

    Bette sighs and looks into her eyes, while running her fingers lightly through Tina’s hair.

    (Bette) Tee, I’m not storming out, but I am going to go. I need to clear my head.

    Bette turns to leave and Tina lets her go. They share a look as Bette closes the door  behind her.

     

    A few days later, Sunday morning, Tina’s apartment. Bette stands on Tina’s doorstep and considers using her key, but thinks better of it. She knocks and Tina opens the door after a moment.

    (Tina) I wasn’t sure you were coming

    (Bette) I said I needed some time, I’m not going to stand you up without contacting you

    Tina looks at her uncertainly.

    (Tina) Well come in, I’ve just started on breakfast

    1. They’re both in too deep now to stop this casual-in-name-only affair. I understand why Bette is not telling Tina about the congresswoman’s warning but I hope she’ll find the courage to share that information with her soon. I’m pretty sure the congresswoman is not the only one who has started to notice something going on between them. If and when this affair comes out, it’s Tina’s career and credibility that will probably be hit the hardest so I hope Bette will come clean soon. I don’t know how they’ll survive the shit storm once this becomes public but I’m still rooting for them and hoping their deep love for one another will see them through whatever test or scandal comes their way. Thanks a lot for this chapter and well-written story, katynd! :) Can’t wait to read the next one!

    2. So Bette is not telling Tina about the Senator’s knowledge of their affair because she is afraid she will lose Tina. She is also afraid that Tina is not committed to this relationship and is seeing or interested in someone else. I believe that Bette and Tina are in a “no where” land. They are neither together nor apart. Their desire to become closer and advance the relationship is deeply desired by both, yet they cannot do that and abide by the rules of the relationship. And I am seeing that the rules are not allowing them to talk to one another about what matters – how they feel about each other. The Senator who knows, is Bette’s political boss. And in order to get Bette to do the things she wants done that Bette might be resistant to, this Senator now has leverage to make Bette bend to her wishes. And this leverage is powerful. With the release of this information may look bad for Bette and it could cause Tina problems in her job with the New York Times. And it will definitively cause trouble in Bette’s relationship with Tina. And why wouldn’t it. Tina deserves to know. And you know there is a path to resolution… change the rules for the relationship…. commit to each other for the long haul and try to make a life together…..go public with it and let the chips fall where they may. They have a real chance for true happiness. They are now both into the 2nd half of their lives…. time to make some decisions as to what their true priorities in life really are. If they want to be with each other in a truly intimate, satisfying relationship, then something has to change… and it won’t happen when they are keeping secrets from each other.

      Thanks for the chapter….
