“Get in the car Bette,” Tina said slowly. As she pulled her door closed.
Bette walked around and got into the passenger side. They looked at each other for a moment. The traffic started to move and they moved slowly with it, Tina didn’t speak. she was still processing the words that Bette had said. They were going around and around in her mind. They were silent for the half an hour journey to Bette’s house. She pulled into the drive way and they sat there as Tina turned of the engine.
“A year,” Tina whispered.
“What?” Bette asked, turning her body to look at Tina.
Tina looked into the big brown eyes that had always made her weak.
“A year, I ask you that question a year ago,”
“I know, I know. I’m sorry,” Bette said softly. “Tina you’re the one for me. I shouldn’t have ever let you go in the first place. I love you so much. I always have from the moment you walked into the gallery twenty five years ago. I saw you tonight and all I could think about was how much I love you.”
Tina felt the tears in her eyes. They had both made mistakes. Some bigger than others. Bette wanted to reach out and touch her. She wanted to hold her. she remembered how good she smelt, how soft her skin is, how hungry her lips can be.
Tina felt a lump in her throat.
“Bette…” She whispered her name.
Bette’s phoned went off, she looked at it, it was Angie saying she was going back to college. Bette knew they were alone now. Bette looked back at Tina and could see the emotion in Tina’s hazel eyes.
“What do you want Tina?” Bette asked softly.
Tina didn’t answer, After a few moments,
“Come in and I’ll make us some coffee,”
Tina nodded as they both got out of the car and headed into the house. Bette turned some lights on and was soon making them coffee in her large kitchen. Tina lent against the counter. She watched as Bette moved around the kitchen. A memory came back to her, the memory of Bette making stir fry when she was with Jodi and Kit had taken Angie to Disneyland. Tina remembered that afternoon, burnt food and good sex. She smiled softly.
