Bette smiles over at her and then tunes into the coverage with a sigh.
Tina smiles over at her.
(Tina) I love that you watch with me
Bette smiles back at her.
(Bette) You’ve never roped anyone else into this?
(Tina) Who else would do this for me baby?
They continue smiling at each other and Bette takes her hand, entwining their fingers.
(Tina) I don’t even think my colleagues are particularly interested, and it’s kind of their job to be interested
(Bette) Well they don’t know what they’re missing
They watch for a moment and Bette stifles a yawn.
(Bette) I might make a tea, do you want one? Or a wine if you still like a drink for these?
(Tina) There are beers in the fridge
Bette raises an eyebrow at her.
(Tina shrugs) If we’re sticking to tradition we should do it properly
Bette sighs and makes her way to the fridge.
(Bette) Well at least they’re cold this time
Bette arrives back in the lounge, sitting next to Tina on the couch and handing her one of the beers.
(Bette) So why the delay in the result? Wasn’t their election a couple of weeks ago?
(Tina) Yeah, it was too close to call, the parties have been negotiating to avoid a hung parliament
Bette stares at her blankly while having a sip of her beer, and Tina smiles back at her.
(Bette) You’re not going to explain the Westminster system to me again are you?
(Tina smiles) Well, only if you’ve forgotten
(Bette) I remember, just don’t quiz me
Tina narrows her eyes at her with a smile.
(Tina) You don’t remember anything
(Bette) I remember all I need to follow along. Tories are the bad guys right?
Tina smiles, raising her beer and clinking it against Bette’s.
They watch on for a while, one showing more interest than the other.
(Tina) Ok, announcement any minute
(Bette yawns) Tee, they’ve been saying that for a while
(Tina) I know, I love the suspense too though
Tina settles back into the couch, leaning back against Bette’s body as Bette wraps an arm around her. Tina watches the coverage as Bette sits back, watching Tina watch the coverage. She smiles as she enjoys Tina’s endearing excitement and reaction to every development.
