(Tina) Probably a good idea
They share another amused look before the waiter arrives and places their bill on the table. Tina casually reaches for it and Bette goes to take it from her.
(Bette) I’ve got it
Tina smiles at her.
(Tina) You got the last one baby
As Tina signs she steals a glance at Bette.
(Tina) You owe me an office story, I won’t be forgetting
Bette smiles at her for a moment before looking down. Tina stops what she is doing and frowns.
(Tina) What is it?
Bette looks up at her.
(Bette) Thing is, I don’t think there is one. Another one, I mean
Tina continues frowning at her as she searches Bette’s face. She speaks with obvious confusion in her voice.
(Tina) We never again had sex in your office after we married?
Bette looks back at her and shakes her head slowly.
(Bette) Not that I can think of, no
Tina continues to look at her as the waiter stops past the table and collects the bill.
That evening, Tina’s house. Tina answers a knock at the front door and opens the door to Alice, who is standing with two overnight bags at her feet.
(Tina) Hey Al, thanks for coming
(Alice) No problem TK
She hands Tina the bags.
(Alice) I think I got everything
(Tina) Thanks. Do you have time for a wine, or do you need to rush off for your date?
(Alice smiles) I have time. I’m meeting her at 8, and I can go straight from here
(Tina smiles) OK
They move through to the kitchen together and Alice takes a seat at the island bench as Tina fetches a bottle of wine and two glasses.
(Alice) So, how are you going here?
Tina nods as she pours their wines.
(Tina) OK actually, having Angie here helped
Alice nods as she has a sip of wine.
(Alice) And things went OK with her? Spending time together?
(Tina smiles) Yes, I loved it. She really is wonderful
(Alice smiles) Yeah
Tina takes a seat opposite her and stares down at her wine for a long moment. She eventually raises her eyes and looks to Alice.
(Tina) Al, can I ask you something?
Alice looks back at her, noticing her serious turn.
