Tina got to the office early on Friday morning. She was focused on getting organized so they could get started on laying the groundwork for several major projects that would be initiated in the coming weeks. She sent emails to Francesca, Hilma and Pat as well as other key personnel to arrange a staff meeting for the following week.
Francesca would continue to head the arts project but with added responsibility due Bette had to limit her volunteer hours. With the pregnancy, preparing for the Allyn Barnes Retrospective, finishing up her term at the CAC and eventually taking her position as the head of the Peabody Corporation Bette had a lot to deal with. Francesca was more than happy to carry the additional load. Hilma would spearhead the education project and Pat and her team would get started on scouting out space for the day care center. They had a lot of work ahead of them but everyone was excited and enthusiastic to get going.
It was almost noon by the time Tina was ready to take a break. She went to the ladies room and grabbed a cup of coffee on her way back as she contemplated what she should do for lunch. When she got back to her office she found Helena waiting for her in the reception area.
After the way things ended with them the night before she hardly expected that she would see Helena again but not surprisingly Helena greeted her with a hug and chaste kiss on the cheek as if everything was fine between them. She’d even brought Tina flowers. It never seized to amaze Tina how Helena could switch personalities so drastically from being an utterly cold blooded bitch one moment to a sweet caring person the next, but what was even more inexplicable was the pull she felt towards Helena. She had only to smile her dazzling smile or say something sweet in her sexy British accent and Tina’s anger would dissipate.
“Helena this is an unexpected surprise.”
“I hope that you don’t mind that I just dropped by. Do you have a minute?”
“Sure come on in.”
Tina ushered Helena into the office and closed the door behind them. They moved to the seating area.
