    “Ugh. I caused her to put them up again. Higher and thicker than before.”

    “Yes, you did,” Julia said plainly.

    Tears immediately sprung to Tina’s eyes. What the fuck kind of therapist says something like that to her client, Tina thought.

    “And you are the only one who can dismantle them.”

    Julia heard the change in Tina’s breathing. She waited and allowed her words to sit with Tina. Neither of them speaking.

    “My advice to you,” Julia began slowly. “…is to rekindle the friendship. Start over. From the very beginning. Taking it slow. Ask her questions about her and wait until she’s ready to share. Don’t pressure her but be very clear of your intentions. Be her friend, Tina.”

    “I don’t want to be just her friend.”

    “I know you don’t. But do you want to win her back? Do you want a deeper relationship with her than before?” Julia asked.

    “More than anything.”

    “Then you have to earn your way back into her heart. And that means no sex.”

    Tina gasped. Clearly, Julia was smoking pot.

    “No sex? But…”

    “Tina, sex with you is too much for Bette right now. From what you’ve told me, she isn’t ready to resume a sexual relationship especially since it can be overwhelming. And neither are you for that matter.”

    Tina exhaled loudly. Julia was right and she knew it.

    “How do I rekindle our friendship? She’s not really speaking to me at the moment,” Tina said sadly.

    “You’ve already started, Tina. Texting is perfect. She may not respond every time. But don’t just tell her about what’s going on with you. Ask her about what’s going on with her. Then be patient.”

    Tina exhaled again allowing Julia’s words to sink in.

    “Thanks for the advice, Julia.”

    “You’re welcome. And don’t think I didn’t notice you changing the subject earlier.”

    “You noticed that, huh?”

    “I did and we will pick it up from there next time.”

    Tina stared at the ceiling and contemplated what Julia had suggested. No sex? Tina rolled her eyes. She realized not having sex with Bette wouldn’t be that much of a struggle since they were currently 1300 miles away from each other. Tina rolled her eyes again also realizing she was the cause of their separation. She needed to go for a run but she had a long night of shooting ahead of her. She was determined to get this movie wrapped and get back to LA…back to Bette.

    1. Seems like the swim helped Bette clear her head. I’m glad she’s got such a great group of friends. I really like Bette’s message to Tina. Kind of a breakthrough. I especially like that she mentioned about eating and interjected some humor. Very touching and sweet. Bette is reaching out. Progress, right? Now Tina needs to take Julia’s advice. With sex like you have written I can understand it might be difficult.On the other hand, Bette is having some pretty hot flashbacks. Hope the plan works. Very good chapter. More please. Billy

      • Thank you! Yes, a little progress on Bette’s part. She is so hurt and doesn’t know how to resolve it. But I think Tina’s messages are softening her and working in the garden is helping as well. I love the group of friends too. They always rally when one of them is in need. So beautiful.

      • Si. Esa es una excelente manera de decirlo. ‘Su alma todavía está herida’. Y ella no sabe cómo avanzar. Sabe que ama a Tina y la quiere en su vida, pero está asustada. Me encanta escribir este viaje. Gracias por leer.

    2. Thank you for the revisions… .This is a very good chapter… I believe Julie is giving Tina some excellent advice. Tina’s choices of taking this job in Vancouver and leaving town immediately without having a conversation with Bette has litterally put them where they are.

      Bette is really dealing with the cards she has been dealt rather well. She is fortunate to have the support team she has to keep her eating and to keep an eye on her during this time of stress. Her choice of swimming to release stress is a good one.

      I know Tina really cares about Bette, however, I hope she sees that sometimes her impromptu decisions sometime gets her more than what she bargained for. Getting time out of town definitively means time away from Bette and when it turns from a week or two into several weeks when the relationship is on the rocks could result in a permenant split. And in this case, Bill would like for Tina to move to Vancouver permanently. Fortunately, this was not what Tina wants for her life. If Tina wants Bette back, she still has to do a lot more work.

      Whatever plan Kiki and the gang have in mind, I hope it works. I hope that both Bette and Tina learn their lesson that they need to do what they can and need to do to provide time for each other no matter how hectic and chaotic life becomes. And most of all, I hope they both learn to get all the information available before making life altering decisions such as moving out and taking jobs in other cities.

      Very nice chapter…. thanks you…

      • You’re welcome. Thank you for your feedback. I love how angsty this story is and how Bette is dealing with the loss of Tina. Bette feels so deeply. It’s nice watching her navigate through her feelings. She always plays the part of being in control. I love seeing her out of control but dealing with it in a healthier way. The support system is huge.

        You’re right. Tina absolutely cares for and loves Bette. And she absolutely has a lot of work to do to win Bette back. I’m glad we are getting to see this process.

        Stay tuned. Part of the plan unfolds in the next chapter.
