7 p.m. Bette and Tina were sitting in the bedroom, both wearing glasses and pajamas, both busy with their work. Tina was reading reports from a new Warner Bros. project, and Bette was texting with one of the art dealers she knew. In fact, her mind wasn’t on work at all, but on tomorrow’s event, which Angie had taken full charge of with a little help from Alice and Shauna, who was preparing the events at Bel-Air. It was exciting. Bette usually handled the organization herself – she liked to know everything for sure, keep track of details, and avoid unexpected surprises during important evenings. Of course, she was very pleased with such attention from their daughter, but she certainly felt uncomfortable especially now, when before the event they had very little time, and she and Tina knew only the guest list that they gave Angie, and a place to host the party. No details.
”I’m worried, Tee. I’m sorry, but I’ll call and make sure everything’s okay”
Bette put down her laptop, picked up her phone, and started looking for Shauna in her contact list.
Tina rolled her eyes and removed her laptop off her lap as well, turning to Bette and taking the phone from her.
”Babe, stop it”
”I’ll call and…”
”No, Bette. Angie wrote that she would tell us all about tomorrow night when she was home. Relax, don’t think about it”
”I just want it to go smoothly”
”And she wants to. Let her prove herself, don’t interfere. I’m sure there won’t be any problems, she’s not the only one doing this”
Bette looked thoughtfully and a little incredulously at Tina, who smiled and quickly kissed the brunette on the lips, then pulled away a little, but was still a couple of centimeters from Bette’s face. Her voice was quieter than before, and her eyes radiated tenderness.
”Yeah. What about a relaxing bath? If I add lavender oil, epsom salt, bring you a glass of wine.. mm?”
Bette smiled at the corners of her mouth, looking first into Tina’s eyes, then at her lips, and then back into her eyes. Her voice also became calmer and lower.
”That sounds good. If you’ll join me”
