Bette moved quickly to the table where her friends were sitting.
”Heeey! Are you really here, dear!”
She hugged Dana, who stood up to greet Bette.
”Oh, Porter, sometimes I feel like you’re coming from Australia and not from the next street. Always so long!”
Bette looked at Alice with a smile and narrowed her eyes before sitting down next to Tina, because there was only an empty seat next to her. She didn’t want to be near Tina now, because she remembered their night and morning together. It seemed to her that the love aura around them was obvious.
Bette shot a quick glance at Tina, but immediately looked away.
”It’s so strange to see all of you guys here! It’s kind of a legendary day, isn’t it?”
Shane smiled broadly and raised her coffee mug as if to say ”cheers”.
”Yes, now an ordinary meeting can be called a legendary day… Dana, tell them”
Alice nudged her friend, so that she almost spilled the tea she was holding in her hands
”Tell us what?”
Tina asked with interest, putting a piece of asparagus in her mouth.
”Come on, I can’t wait!”
Alice was excited
”Al, let her say a word!”
Shane said, trying to win Dana a place in Alice’s emotional monologue.
”Okay-okay, come on!”
”So, since yesterday I live in LA again”
Dana said this with a happy smile on her face as she looked around at her friends.
”This is excellent news!”
Shane hugged her friend, and the others joined in with cheers.
”That’s great, but why did you come back? Is your job all right?”
Helena ate her salad and asked these questions in parallel.
”Yes, yes, the job is fine. Actually, it’s more than okay”
”I saw this amazing Nike ad with you, it’s really high-level…”
Tina was about to say something else, but Alice interrupted her.
”Yeah, a Nike ad block is cool, but what are you going to do now? In addition to the advertising contracts?”
”The tennis school is working fine without me being in Chicago all the time, so I want to get into charity right now… this is what I would like to do at this stage, as long as I have the resource to do it”
