Bette looked at Alice who was starring at her with her mouth wide open. she couldn’t deal with what she had just heard.
“You…Bette Porter are moving out of West Hollywood and out of LA to some hippy dippy ranch to be with a woman you barely know. Jesus Bette have you lost your mind,” Alice said, she couldn’t help herself. she wanted her friend to see how crazy she thought the situation was.
“Alice, it’s not a hippy ranch, at the moment it’s a burnt down ranch, but we are designing the place together.”
“Does Tina own the land and house right out?” Shane asked, sipping her coffee, sitting back in the chair a small smile on her face. she was very pleased for Bette. she knew that Tina was right for her but the rest of the gang hadn’t really reached that point yet, mainly due to how painfully shy Tina was.
“Yeah, she bought it with her inheritance when her mother and father were murdered.”
“Murdered?” Alice sat forward. She loved gossip.
“I’m not getting into it with you. that’s private. But yeah. she bought the house and land. the land area is massive.”
“Why does she want to live out there?” Alice asked, “I mean come on, Bette you’re a city gal. you love it in central LA. Your business is here, your house is here. you can’t be seriously thinking of just moving out like that.” Alice clicked her fingers.
Bette reached forward and picked up her mug of coffee and took a sip. She was trying to form the correct words in her head. she didn’t want to lose her temper with Alice as that was the wrong way to go about things.
“I’m not leaving my business, the gallery will still need to be ran, but I have galleries all over the world and could have a home study if I don’t want to drive into LA every day. Plus yes I have a nice house, filled with lovely art work but its not a home. It’s more like a show home. It’s horrible. I don’t like it. When I build the studio for Jodi I thought I could make that house into a home, but it didn’t and she left before I could even show the fucking thing to her. Tina uses and feels like it’s not her own because it wasn’t made for her. it wasn’t made with her form of art in mind. Tina is not a city girl she wants to live a quieter life. I would get away from the judging eyes of the lesbian community and give Tina something she wants. A home. a studio, a girlfriend who loves her and maybe yes maybe one day a family.” Bette said the whole speech carefully, choosing her words rightly as she knew she wanted to express to her friends how she really feels about the whole situation.
