“You made it,” Tina smiled at Liz.
“I wouldn’t have missed this for the world.”
Liz made a face.
“Whatever do you mean?”
“Bette and I are working on…”
Tina threw up her hands and shook her head.
“We are trying to figure us out.”
“Tina, I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize you and Bette getting back together. I’ve been the one trying to help.”
Liz smiled. She put her hands on Tina’s shoulders and nodded.
“Oh, I invited Abby. I figured since she’s your new assistant, she needs to see first-hand what she will be dealing with. Hope that’s okay.”
“Yes. That’s fine but what’s that supposed to mean?”
Liz shrugged and giggled. Tina shook her head.
“Let’s get this over with.”
Tina took a deep breath and exhaled slowly.
“Bette’s in the kitchen.”
Bette felt Tina before she said anything. It was nice having that feeling back. Tina always gave her butterflies. She smiled to herself and licked her lips.
Bette looked over her shoulder. Her face went blank.
“Hi, Bette,” Liz said.
Bette took a deep breath.
“Hello,” she said cooly.
Bette looked at Tina and rolled her eyes. Tina gave Bette a look begging her not to make a scene. Bette rolled her eyes again and nodded. Tina gave Bette her famous “be nice” look. Bette had seen that look many times in the past.
“Tee, do we have to go to this thing?”
“Yes, Baby. I have to make an appearance.”
“Isn’t Henry the homophobic coccydynia?”
“The pain in the ass.”
”Why can’t you just say pain in the ass?”
”Because I like the way coccydynia sounds,” Bette shrugged.
Tina shook her head and rolled her eyes. That was one of the things Tina adored about Bette. She was so fucking smart. Intelligent, beautiful, sexy, funny. Bette was the whole package and she was all hers.
“Yep. That’s him. The coccydynia. We don’t have to stay long. But I do have to show up. You don’t have to come but I really want you to.”
Tina rewarded Bette with a peck on the lips. Bette pulled her back in for a longer kiss before Tina wiggled out of her arms. She knew what would happen if they continued kissing.
