The next week, Tina is in her office at the studio and answers her cell.
(Bette) Hi, is it an OK time?
(Tina smiles) Yes, you’re fine, I’m between meetings. Is everything OK?
(Bette) I’m really sorry but I’m not going to be able to meet for dinner tonight, there’s a bit of a disaster at work
Tina frowns as she takes in the stress in Bette’s voice.
(Tina) That’s fine. What’s going on? Are you OK?
(Bette sighs) Well, I’ve just lost my next show, very unexpectedly. It’s a nightmare to be honest
(Tina) I’m sorry. Do you need to work back to deal with it?
Bette sighs and rubs her forehead.
(Bette) No, there’s nothing to be done tonight. What I need to do is go home and drink a bottle of whiskey and feel sorry for myself
(Tina) Well, that sounds like a wonderful plan
(Bette) Thank you
Tina smiles and then pauses, thinking for a moment.
(Tina) Why don’t you come over? We could just stay in. Bring your bottle of whiskey, you can still drink it if you want to, but maybe the company and talking about it might help?
Bette smiles as she considers this.
(Bette) I’m in a terrible mood. I don’t know if it’s the best idea
(Tina) I want you to come
Bette raises her eyebrows and smiles.
(Tina) Don’t feel obligated though, if you’d prefer to be alone I understand
(Bette) No, it sounds nice actually, if you’re sure
(Tina) I’m sure
(Bette smiles) OK
That evening, Tina’s house. Bette knocks on the door and after a moment Tina answers. They look at each other silently for a moment, Tina taking in Bette’s tired eyes and slightly unkempt hair. Tina smiles gently as she reaches towards her, pulling her inside and wrapping her arms around her back. Tina holds her close and can feel Bette relaxing in her arms.
(Tina) I’m glad you came
(Bette smiles) Me too
They draw back and look at one another, both smiling as they lean in to a gentle and lingering kiss. They lean away and Tina runs her hands down Bette’s arms.
(Tina) So, did you want whiskey or wine? I have both

Alrighty then! Looks like they are both beginning to become attached to each other… to rely on each other for comfort and support.. Now can this turn into something which they can both admit the want for a life time… I hope so.
