In this relationship though, Tina didn’t easily give in to Lynn’s requests or for them to share a home. She held her ground and insisted they keep separate residences, which Lynn finally agreed to and so they did. Tina explained to Lynn that she wasn’t in a place in her life that she was willing or able to make any relationship permanent. The advertising entrepreneur had other commitments. Her sister’s illness taking up a huge part of her life and free time. The pilot had reluctantly agreed, but harbored a desire to convince Tina otherwise. Lynn was convinced that in time, she would get Tina to agree.
“Oh Lynn,” Tina closed her eyes and shook her head. “Thanks, that’s very thoughtful and I do appreciate it, but not tonight.”
“Come on Tina!” Lynn sighed heavily, her voice laced with frustration. “We haven’t seen each other in a week.”
“I know, I know. And I’m sorry.” Tina sighed and flopped back in the chair, her phone to her ear. “You had that thing to do with your mom before your work tour started and then you flew out right away. We didn’t see each other before you left. But Ashley’s had a really terrible day and…”
“Ashley always has a bad day.” It was out of Lynn’s mouth before she knew it.
She wanted to kick herself. Did she really just say that? Fuck.
“Christ Lynn. I’m sorry if my sister’s illness is interfering with your life or plans.” Tina sniped at Lynn’s response, too tired and worried to endure any negative remarks from her sometimes lover.
“Come on Tina, that’s not what I meant.” Lynn tried to defend herself as she slipped behind the steering wheel of her bright red sports car.
“Lynn,” Tina closed her eyes and took a deep breath before she spoke again. Her voice tight, but controlled. “You knew after we started dating that my sister had become ill and I was going to take care of her the best I could. She’s my priority right now. I explained that very clearly to you.”
“Yes, yes you did.” Lynn tried softening her voice to appease Tina. “And I know she needs you. You feel responsible for her.”
“Yes, I do.” Tina agreed, her voice softening a bit too. She really didn’t want to argue. Not after the day she had. “I’m her only family now besides my aunt, uncle and 2 cousins. She means everything to me.”
