    I Will Not Let You Fall

    ”Idling your time away I see?”

    Rousing from her reverie quickly, Bette looked at her manager, Nicole, who took a seat on a bar stool. The brunette realized that she had stopped wiping the glass at some point, so she proceeded to replenish her duties, if with a little bit of embarrassment.

    ”Just kidding,” Nicole said, letting out a good-natured chuckle. ”You’re doing great. I’ve been watching you for a while and I’m glad to have hired you.”

    Bette looked up and studied the woman for a moment. In her late forties, her manager could have easily passed for a younger woman. Her long straight hair was dark blonde, almost brown, and was perfectly coiffed. She had a heart-shaped face, painted with too much makeup, a sharp nose, pointed chin and light bluish green eyes. Her clothes were elegant and corporate, she had pearls layered around her neck and rings on many of her fingers. She was usually a calm woman, even though her voice had a rich vibrant quality that commanded attention.

    ”Thank you, I guess,” Bette said and smiled.

    ”How are things going here for you on the whole?” Nicole wondered. ”Do you like our team?”

    ”Sure. Everyone’s been great so far.”

    ”We have a tradition to welcome new members of our team by throwing a party in their honor. To help them feel more comfortable around other team members, to create a positive connection, so to speak.”

    ”I think that’s a wonderful tradition,” Bette commented as she hung a pure, unblemished glass up onto a floating glass shelf before proceeding to wipe another glass.

    ”How would you like to do it, say, on the next weekend?”

    Bette smiled. ”Deal.”

    ***

    Taking her baseball cap off, Bette stared down at the tombstone in front of her. The sun beamed down from the sky and produced a suffocating haze that made it difficult to breathe. She remembered the rain when she had stood here the last time. And the misery. The rain-sodden misery. Such a contrast to this beautiful sunny day.

    ”Hello, Marcus,” the brunette said in a soft, barely audible voice. ”It’s been awhile.”

    She inched closer to the tombstone that was tilted at an angle, looking neglected. Crouching down beside it, she rested her hand on the top of it. She let out a sigh, wincing as she did. Her chest was tight with the burden of ten years of grief and unanswered questions, which were rather rhetorical than those that needed to be answered, all beginning with the same word. Why? Why him? Why had Marcus been taken away so young when his family needed him the most, when Bette needed him the most? Why hadn’t she tried to prevent his death when she could have? She knew she could have. She had spent years in prison, dwelling on how she could have done everything differently.

    1. Hi Valerie,

      Just had a break when i saw that you posted a new update.

      It is fantastic that Bette is finding her way back in life and has such a wonderfull friend in Ayola.

      So they finally met again, wonder what Tina has to tell Bette. You are such a naughty girl to not disclose it in this chapter.

      Why do i have a feeling that Tina moved on with Helena?! That would be the ultimal betrayal that she could inflict on Bette.

      Can i pursue you to answer that question via a pm to me?! I would go crazy till you update again, so please, please tell me🙏

      Thanks for the update!

    2. Hi! Thanks, you wrote are really great chapter!

      So, they met eventually, and i must say you described this meeting perfect. I believe we’ll know what Tina want to say Bette.

      P. S. I hope in Tina’s bed not Helena

    3. Hi Valerie:

      What a wonderful surprise, (not only for us but for Bette and Tina too), an excellent story, as Bibi I want to know what is coming; but I’ll wait, I know you’ll never let us fall in TIBETTE’s matter.😱

      I think it’s going to be hard, but they have to find their way back to each other, that type of love can’t be downgraded to friendship, it’s a whole thing or its nothing, I don’t think they have more choices.❀

      Valerie, I appeal to your kindness, PLEASE UPDATE SOON !!!😡

      Thanks for the wonderful chapter.πŸ‘

    4. Thanks for the Update!!!
      this is my fav fanfiction so far..
      it breaks my heart seeing how hard for Bette to get her life back..so much that she has lost..
      couldn’t imagine if ayola wasn’t there to help her.
      but i hope they stay their relationship as friend..cos i’m still hoping somehow, somewhere Bette and Tina could find their way back together..and this time Tina could proof her love to Bette by staying by her side as her promised.
      it’s suprised me that Tina has moved on with her life and has lived together with someone else…
      i really thought after Tina read Bette’s handwriting in her apartment, Tina would tried with all her power to proof her love to Bette by keeping her promise to stay by waiting for Bette…

      now that Tina and Bette has met again, please..please…please…. don’t let us waiting too long..
      couldn’t wait to read for the next Chapter..

      great Job Valerie…!!!
