(Bette laughs) Don’t worry about it
Tina smiles and gestures towards her dirt-covered overalls.
(Tina) As you can see I’m a bit of a mess
(Bette smiles) You’re fine
She glances down Tina’s body and smiles.
(Bette) I like your outfit
Tina laughs and slaps her on the shoulder as she takes the bag from Bette and moves towards the kitchen.
(Tina) Don’t tease me
They walk through the house together and Tina places the bag on the kitchen bench as Bette looks towards the patio doors.
(Bette) Can I see what you’re doing out there?
(Tina) Mmmm, I don’t know
Bette laughs and looks at her curiously.
(Bette) It’s not going well?
Tina shrugs and then moves towards the doors, beckoning for Bette to follow.
(Tina) You’ll see
They walk out onto the patio and stand alongside each other looking towards the structure Tina has created. Bette stands with eyebrows raised and Tina looks over at her and laughs.
(Tina) You don’t have to pretend it’s not terrible
Bette laughs and then smiles over at her.
(Bette) It’s not terrible
Tina raises an eyebrow at her. Bette smiles and then looks back to the structure.
(Bette) Did you intend for it to be at that angle?
Tina looks over at her and then looks back towards the garden and sighs.
(Tina) God it looks ridiculous, doesn’t it?
Bette smiles at her and then looks back to the garden.
(Bette) No, it doesn’t. It’s just a little… abstract
Tina slaps her on the shoulder with the back of her hand and Bette laughs.
(Bette) Abstract doesn’t mean bad
Tina laughs and shakes her head.
(Tina) Bette it’s a vegetable garden, I wasn’t going for abstract
(Bette) Well if you want to try and fix it I could help
Tina looks over at her and smiles.
(Tina) You don’t have to do that, I’m sure that’s not how you wanted to spend your Saturday
Bette shrugs and smiles and Tina smiles back at her.
(Tina) Are you handy?
Bette laughs and raises her eyebrows.
They smile at each other and then both turn back to the structure as their attention is drawn to a creaking sound coming from one of the raised beds. At that moment one of the legs gives way and the corner of the structure lands heavily on the ground. Tina closes her eyes and sighs heavily and Bette cringes as she takes in the damage.
