Later that week, Tina is at home and moves towards the front entrance when she hears a knock at the door. She opens the door to Bette, and they both stand still looking at each other for a long moment.
Tina raises her eyebrows and looks back at her, taking a moment before responding.
(Tina) Bette, hi
(Bette) Alice said that she’s spoken to you. That she’s told you what’s going on?
Tina leans against the doorframe and nods.
(Tina) Ah, yes, she’s filled me in. That’s great news, about your memory
Bette nods, looking at her for a moment.
(Bette) She dropped in as I was leaving for the airport. I intended to slip away without anyone knowing about my memory returning, or my trip. I’m sorry that you found out like that
Tina nods, examining her for a moment.
(Bette) I just got home. And I’ve come straight here
Tina looks at her for a moment and then glances back towards the house.
(Tina) Well Angie’s not here I’m sorry. She’s with Kit tonight, I’m sure you can catch them there
Bette looks back at her.
(Bette) I’m not here to see Angie. I asked Kit to arrange with you to have her stay tonight
Tina raises her eyebrows.
(Bette) I wondered if we could have a conversation
Tina considers her for a moment, and then frowns and nods.
(Tina) OK, come in
They move through the house together and Tina turns to her.
(Tina) Can I get you a drink? A tea?
Bette looks over at her.
(Bette) Do you feel like a wine?
Tina looks at her uncertainly, and then nods.
She gestures towards the lounge.
(Tina) Head through, I’ll be right in
Bette heads to the couch and Tina moves to the kitchen to organise their drinks. She glances over at Bette as she moves between the cabinet and the bench, and Bette waits patiently for her.
Tina arrives in the lounge and hands Bette a glass before settling alongside her on the couch. They sit in silence for a moment and both have a sip of wine, before Tina turns to her.
(Tina) Do you remember everything? Of these last few weeks?
