Chapter 18 – Home Again
Bette: Now, Shane maybe, but not me.
Tina: Well, when I came along, you were not sampling any of goods being presented. But there sure were a lot of those who did all they could to make sure you knew they were available. It took Shane, Alice and Dana to do some tag team resistance on your behalf to allow you to go to The Planet without being approached. I think even Kit assisted with threating to have them banned from The Planet if they approached you again. Within a couple of weeks, WeHo had been informed that you were off the market.
Bette: I didn’t know that either. Of course, I was with who I wanted to be with. I didn’t notice that my admirers seem to disappear. It didn’t matter to me. I was with you.
Tina: I know. And I love you more because you didn’t notice. I knew then that I had your complete attention. You were not shopping for something else.
Bette: No, that never occurred to me to look for someone else. At least not until I thought you and Henry were going to get married.
Tina: Well, I’ve got you back. And we have worked on us a lot. I have no doubts that you have not and will not be looking for someone else. I love you too much to ever let that happen.
Bette: I wouldn’t know where to begin nor what to do anymore. Besides, I’m getting old and gray and I see the lines in my face and neck. I don’t have the energy nor the patience to try to form another relationship. And no one could ever compete with you. You have exactly the right temperament for me. You’re kind and patient. You’re smart and you have talents which I am just now learning about. And you have a technique to get me to do whatever you want me to do. And I would be dead long before anyone else could figure out what that is. You are a part of me… a part that I would only be half a person without.
Tina: Come on Bette. Let’s get some sleep. I love you too. You are a part of me as well. I couldn’t function without you. At least not very well. Besides, I’m not going to let you get away. We’ve got future plans and you are going to be with me every step of the way on this journey. So, get some sleep. I love you Bette Kennard-Porter.
Bette: Goodnight, T. I love you too.
They kissed and then snuggled together and were both asleep within minutes.
