Chap 18 – Family Night
Bette leans up and turns slightly so she can look into Tina’s eyes. Her hands on either side of Tina to steady herself.
”I’ve only ever thought of you as my partner, my wife.” Bette says, honesty in her voice. ”Even when we were apart after Angie was born. I just keep hoping deep down that someday, some way we would get back together. We love each other too much not to.”
Tina trails her fingers down Bette’s fine jaw line, ending at her chin which she holds so preciously in her fingers.
”I know babe. I have felt the same. Even when I left this last time, I knew I was still in love with you, but didn’t know how to manage my issues and depression.”
Bette looks down at Tina’s hands as they now cover her own. She asks her question without looking up, afraid of the answer. Her long history of insecurity high jacking her mind.
”Do you really think we’ll make it work this time?”
Silence from Tina. No movement.
It seemed like forever . . .
Bette slowly raises her gaze to look into the blonde’s bluish green eyes and finding unbridled love in them. What she sees takes her breath away.
”My love, my Bette.” Tina gently draws Bette’s chin in close to her and gives her a huge smile. ”Babe, I absolutely know, not think, that we will make it this time.”
”Oh, yeah.” Tina leans forward and places a soft, loving kiss on Bette’s lips. One that conveys all the love she has for Bette.
One that comes from deep in her heart.
Today would prove to be another whirlwind day for Bette and the Porter Campaign team leading up to Election Day – it was only 4 days away. The result of another poll this week still had Bette trailing Milner, but by a smaller margin. All Bette’s efforts and that of her campaign people were starting to show in a positive way. The event party last evening had been a huge success and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the shelters and the needy families and individuals they served.
After the excitement of the event party the previous night, Bette and Tina both had a difficult time falling asleep. That coupled with the growing excitement they both were feeling towards the other person. That led to prolonged periods of thought which lead to arousal and then need. The need to satisfy and be satisfied by the other like only they could. Like no one else would ever fill.
