    Get The Girl—Chapter 5-Bette’s Backstory

    “As I ask you at every session Bette.  Is there anything you would like to discuss with me?..And let me remind you that everything here is confidential and I can not disclose anything discussed in our sessions without your consent or by a court order”

    I nod and tap my fingers on the arm rests of the recliner

    “I’d like to talk about something weighing on me I haven’t shared with you Dr Emily”

    She looks at me with a raised eyebrow.  She has always wanted me to be honest in my sessions and I have to a point without revealing the true reason for my admission into the burn unit and psych ward

    “Ok.  May I record this session Bette?”

    Now I’m nervous.  She has never asked to record our sessions.  She has always just written or scribbled in her notepad.  I think she must have hundreds of notepads on me filed away somewhere.  So now I feel she senses I am about to unload some heavy information and well….I am

    “Yes you may” I say without hesitation

    I mean what does it matter now.  At least I can be honest with myself and to Dr Emily who obviously feels I have been hiding things.  She’s so perceptive but she has never pushed me

    I watch her get up from her chair that is sitting directly in front of me and open her desk drawer. She pulls out her small recorder and brings it over to the table in between us.  She pushes the button and nods at me

    “Ok..Begin” she says to me and sits down once again grabbing her pad and pen.

    I take a breath and rub my temples slowly with my fingers

    “I guess I will start from the beginning..Is that ok?”

    Dr Emily nods “You can start wherever you need to Bette and with whatever you are comfortable with”

    I sigh “None of this is comfortable”

    “Take your time” she says calmly

    She’s so patient with me.  Always has been.

    “Ok.  Well it began when my mother married my step father Curtis Stone who was the police chief of Langley at the time until…well you know” I pause looking at Dr Emily and she just nods so I continue “Well I was 13 at the time…At first Curtis was very nice to me and treated me like a daughter of his own which I never felt before and my Mother seemed happy.  And everything was fine until I turned 15.   I started noticing my Mother wasn’t eating much and she seemed to be losing weight and complaining about not having any energy.  She went to the doctor but he couldn’t find anything causing her symptoms or diagnose her.  Curtis also began to change around that time.  I’m not sure what had caused it but he would be verbally abusive to my Mother.  He never hit her physically.  Not that I saw but she started neglecting the housework because of not feeling well so I started doing the housework just so Curtis wouldn’t come in and take it out on my Mother.  He ignored me for the most part.  Like I wasn’t even there.  But as long as the house was clean and dinner was cooked  Curtis wouldn’t be verbally abusive.  So one day I happen to be cleaning his office which he had told me to stay out of but he had left the door open and I saw how filthy it was so I began to clean and made my way over to his desk.  While moving papers around to clean the desk I ran across a $750,000 life insurance policy my Mother had taken out before she had met Curtis and listed me as the beneficiary.  I had no idea why it was even on his desk when all of her important papers were in a lockbox at the bank.  I quickly moved things back like I found them and got out of there”

    1. Sounds like Mom was poisoned. Wow… So the dear Sherriff Curtis Stone is still around? That’s not good. Since Bette knows the truth, she’s still a target. What if she does not take to his threats? And of course Principal Kirkland knows the truth too. That’s two people who are eye witnesses to Stone’s attempt on Bette’s life. Now the therapist knows. And she could be subpoenaed to tell what she knows. Even though it is hearsay, she has professional experience to know when she is hearing the truth about a situation. So what has happened to the life insurance proceeds? They belong to Bette and it is the fiduciary duty of Stone to maintain those until she reaches 18. He may spend the money only for Bette’s support. But Bette is living with her aunt, not Stone. DFS should have the guardianship removed from Stone and transferred to Bette’s aunt or a court appointed guardian.

      Too bad Bette just didn’t duck down in the seat and hide from Stone and Kirkland when she heard the garage door open. It is possible that Stone would have just gone on into the house and never seen her. Stone would still have been a problem, but Bette would have avoided these burns and pain. Oh well, hind sight is always 20/20.

      So…. now Bette is litterally alone with her secret and recovering from a huge trauma in her life. And Tina is in a catch 22 in that she has Alyssa’s secret and probably needs someone to confide in herself about that. Alyssa needs some counseling in how to get out of her mess…. and that is not going to happen with Tina alone. All of this and its their senior year of high school…. what a mess . And none of these girls can have a reasonably happy life until these messes get straighten out.

      Complexities on top of Complexities….. keep it going… I’m hooked. Good story.

    2. Wow! That was a great chapter, lots going on in this story of your’s. Well done, I enjoyed it and thank you.
      I’m guessing Tina doesn’t trust herself not to spill the beans so shes keeping her distance. Glad Bette’s smart enough to see that its because somethings going on, not because of her.
      And distance seems to make the heart grow fonder, something I think they both are soon to find out.

    3. What a great chapter. I’m glad Bette was able to talk about her trauma to her therapist, although my heart broke for her. as I read it.

      So well-written. I’m enjoying this story, looking forward to the next chapter.

    4. Took me over a week to read this chapter, was in London to visit Laurel Holloman’s exhibition, but so glad Bette finally told her story. Let’s hope she can now really deal with her trauma together with Dr. Emily.

      Kind of strange that Tina is turning away from Bette sinde they went to bowling together and Tina had that conversation with Alyssa.

      Look forward to read the next chapter!
