Tina sat back in her chair and reflected on just how to begin her tale. Her story, her life with Bette. It was complex and multifaceted. Lots of people involved and many moving parts. It proved to be no simple love story by any means. No indeed.
On the other side of the room, Shane was wondering exactly what Tina was going to reveal. This was a part of Tina’s past that she knew nothing about. At the moment, Shane could only guess as to how important this Dr Bette Porter was to her friend.
Both women seemed lost in their own thoughts.
Within a few minutes, Shane was back with a steaming mug of coffee for both of them and a calming smile for Tina. Shane set the blonde’s mug on the desk in front of her and she sat back down in her own chair with her mug in her hands.
“Mm, thanks.” Tina took a sip, savoring the blend. Her eyes darted to Shane. The blonde was nervous. Her mind racing . . .
What would Shane think? Would she judge her? Would her business partner think her foolish to still harbor feelings for the affable doctor?
“You’re welcome. Just so you know, I’m not going anywhere my friend.” Shane assured Tina as she made herself comfortable. “I’m here for however long it takes for you to tell me as much as you want.”
“I want to tell you everything.” Tina wanted to let the short haired woman know that she would leave nothing out of the tale. All her cards would be on the table. That Tina knew in her mind and heart. “But it’s . . . well . . . it’s complicated.”
“Then take all the time you need.” Shane offered a kind smile, settling deeper into her cushioned chair. Preparing herself for a long discussion. “Take me back to the beginning. To when you two first met.”
“To London?” Tina questioned and upon seeing Shane’s acceptance, she nodded. She once again took a deep breath, readying herself for what lay ahead. “Yeah, starting at the beginning is probably a good idea. It will help explain everything.”
Shane set her coffee mug on the corner of the desk. She sat back again and waited for Tina to start. Her eyes encouraging towards the blonde.
