The next evening, Tina is lying in bed in Alice’s spare bedroom and answers her cell.
(Tina) Hey baby
(Bette smiles) Hey, is it too late to call?
(Tina smiles) No, of course not. Everything ok?
(Bette) Yes, everything’s fine. I’ve just been watching movies with Angie, I didn’t realise it had gotten so late and I meant to call tonight
(Tina smiles) Call anytime baby. How’s everything going there? Angelica’s ok?
(Bette) She’s ok. She still doesn’t want to talk about anything but I liked having a relaxed night together
(Bette) I miss you though
(Tina smiles) I miss you too. When can I see you again do you think?
(Bette) I can take another day later in the week, but the next couple of days are just too hectic
(Tina smiles) Baby you don’t need to take time off work
(Bette) It’s fine. I want to
(Bette) It’s harder to see each other with Angie back, and I don’t want to wait until the weekend
(Tina) Well I’m going to the Planet tomorrow night, Alice is going to rally everyone I think. Would that be impossible to manage with Angelica?
(Bette) No, not impossible. I wouldn’t usually go out during the week when she’s with me, but I could organise for her to go to her friend’s house. She’d be only two doors down anyway
(Tina) She wouldn’t mind?
(Bette sighs) No, she’d like it. She’d probably like the break from me. She said I’m looking at her too much, and too weirdly apparently
(Tina) You’re worried about her
(Bette sighs) Yes. We have a really good relationship but I think she probably turns to you more than me sometimes, and I think she’s a bit lost not being able to do that right now
(Tina) Well, I know I’m not exactly what she has in mind, but is it still ok if I take her out on Saturday?
(Bette smiles) Yes, of course. She’ll love it
(Tina) I was thinking I’ll ask Kit to come with us, at least for the first time
(Bette nods) OK, whatever you’re comfortable with
(Tina) Did you end up getting onto her?
