Emma waited for one of the three shell shocked women to speak and landed her gaze on Tina who was looking back at her as if she was seeing her for the very first time. Tears were glistening in her eyes and Emma’s tension suddenly lifted from seeing the emotion spilling from the woman who she just learned was her biological mother.
Without breaking her gaze on Emma, Tina placed one hand on Mallory and the other one on Kit “Mallory?..Kit?…I think maybe I need to talk to Emma alone. If that’s ok with you Emma?”
Emma nods without saying anything
“Ok. We can go out and sit at the bar while you two talk” Kit offered and looked at Mallory who nodded
“Emma?…Would you be comfortable talking here or somewhere else?” Tina asked raking her fingers through her hair. She wanted to leave this strictly Emma’s decision and wanted her to be as comfortable as she could possibly feel right now
Emma raked her fingers through her hair. A habit she had of doing when she felt anxious and this definitely made her feel extremely anxious
“Uh..I guess maybe I would like to go back to campus” She says nervously as she didn’t want to keep her Aunt Kit’s office occupied when she probably would need it and she wasn’t sure how long this talk would be
“Would you like to go sit and talk in the art gallery?” Tina asked knowing the art gallery had a comfortable seating area and it was more neutral and less intimidating than asking her to talk in her office
“Ok..I guess I can get my rideshare to take me back now and I can meet you there”
Tina nods “Ok. But I would be more than happy to have you ride with me if you’d like” she says quickly raking her fingers through her hair
Emma also rakes her fingers through her hair thinking. She was more than certain the ride with Tina would be highly awkward at this point but she did appreciate her offering. She sighed as she brought her hand away from her hair bringing it back to her side.
“Thanks but I will just meet you there. I will wait at the security station on the side” she pauses and looks at Kit “Aunt Kit I came by earlier when you were talking outside on your phone and overheard your talk with her” she glanced at Mallory then back at Kit “I guess I should have called first” she chuckled nervously much to the three women’s amusement
