Bette and Tina would be spending the entire day much like the past two, knocking on doors and meeting people to encourage them to vote. Dani and Pierce would be monitoring results throughout the day and providing updates to Bette when they became available. Dani had set up for Bette to give brief media updates at noon and again at 5pm on voter reactions and exit polls information. Throughout the day Dani and her team would also be updating Bette’s social media sites.
This afternoon, Bette would take some private time to put the finishing touches on her speeches to be delivered this evening. She had prepared both a victory and a concession speech. Naturally, she hoped she would be giving the victory speech, but she needed to be prepared for the worst result just in case. Her dear old Dad had taught Bette to always be prepared for whatever may happen way back into her childhood. One of the few pieces of advice that she was grateful that she had received from Melvin.
Tonight they would all assemble together for the results of the election. The extended family together again to support one another.
But right now, this morning, Bette took a deep breath and felt Tina starting to stir beside her. It was still dark outside. The sun not up yet. She cast her eyes off the ceiling and reached for her phone on the night stand, quickly deactivating the early morning alarm.
“What time is it?” Tina muttered as she tried to wake up. Her voice still groggy and thick with sleep.
“It’s still early.” Bette answered as her right arm came to encircle Tina as the blonde shifted in the bed. Bette pulled her close. “6am babe.”
“God, seems like I just feel asleep.” Tina mumbles into Bette’s shoulder and her arm circles the brunette’s waist. “How are you doing?”
“Okay for now.” Bette sighs. “Worried naturally.”
“Yeah, I can imagine.” Tina rolls onto her back beckoning Bette to lay with her. She opens her arms for the brunette to fill. “Come here.”
Bette moves into the blonde’s welcoming arms and rests her head on Tina’s shoulder, her arms snaking around Tina at her shapely waist. They stayed in this tight embrace for a few minutes. Each cherishing the closeness and calm. The warmth. Bette appreciating the connection.
