After meeting with them both, he discussed his findings with Bette. Over afternoon lattes, the former colleagues met in Bette’s office and agreed that both Pierce and Dani would be assets to the corporation they were establishing. They gladly decided to offer them permanent positions and as quickly as possible. And so they did just that the very next day. Dani and Pierce were excited to get the final approval and pledged to work their hardest to support the goals of the foundation.
Now that her core team was intact, Bette felt better and moved forward with other details for the Foundation. She was looking forward to working side by side with James once again. She had really missed the man who had taken on the role of her ‘little brother’ all those years ago and who was a valued member of her extended family. She was extremely happy that the rock solid man she relied on would be a part of her professional and personal life once again.
Bette was also enjoying her new freedom to craft this foundation in the way she wanted. It was reminiscent of the old days when she had owned her very first gallery. Truly being her own boss once again and not having anyone to answer to except herself and her lovely life partner. Now she had the freedom to take the ideas she had in any direction she wanted. Financial pressure was nonexistent at this stage of the development of the foundation and she was thankful.
As Tina had planned, she did take some time for herself and her family the first few weeks she was back in Silver Lake. The immediate administrative work she had to perform was taken care of and then the producer took that much desired time off to just relax and enjoy her family once again. Setting up a new routine with both Bette and Angie. Enjoying doing the everyday things with both her favorite women. Great discussions over meals and spending some great quality time together. She and Bette spent many evenings just relaxing and talking, cuddled up together in the living room, den or their bedroom.
Tina also developed an exercise program for herself too. She wanted to improve her physical stamina and slim her curves down from too many hours spent sitting in a chair during business meetings and the onset of middle age. She had stopped running years ago after a minor knee issue, so now walking and bike riding were great sources for exercise and strength building. It would help reshape her body in a way she wanted and she hoped that Bette would like too. She knew Bette still desired her physically, but she wanted to look her best for her partner.
