Tina climbed out of her car and walked into The Planet hurriedly. Inside, her gaze fell straight on the table she and the gang usually hung out at. Alice was already there, waiting for her.
As the blonde threaded her way toward the table, several heads turned in her direction. All the chatter seemed to stop suddenly. For the first time in a long time, Tina didn’t blush because she was embarrassed or miffed, but because she was both. She felt like she was on display.
Pulling out a chair, Tina sat down and looked at Alice, who was studying her with a mockingly amused smile.
”What’s wrong, TK? You don’t like all the attention?” the quirky blonde teased.
Tina scowled. ”Very funny, Al.”
”Well… You had your chance when I suggested we meet in the evening at SheBar. You refused. Now you take all that. There are too many prying bitches at The Planet on lunch breaks.”
”Because I can’t in the evening. I’m meeting up with Bette,” Tina explained as she scanned the menu, having known what she would eat as soon as she stepped inside the cafe. She just had to pretend to be occupied, since people still kept throwing glances at her.
Alice didn’t respond for a while, so Tina raised her eyes to find out what was her friend up to. Alice was watching her expectantly.
”What?” Tina asked.
Alice shrugged. ”I’m just so fucking shocked, that’s all.”
A waitress came up to them and took Tina’s order. When she left, Tina sighed. ”I know. I’m still pretty shocked myself. Everything happened so fast.”
”How in the world..? How could all this happen? Nobody expected that. Bette wasn’t supposed to be out of prison for, like, another five years or even more, was she?”
”Yeah. She got out on parole.”
”How did you find out she was out?”
Tina snorted in sardonic laughter and shook her head. ”I bumped into her at a fucking grocery store. Can you believe it?”
Alice stared at her with an awed expression on her face. ”This is truly fate.”
”So what now? Are you guys back together or what?”
Tina nodded. ”We are. She was hesitant at first, but yesterday we spent a whole day together, talked things over…” she paused for emphasis, leaned forward over the table and spoke, dropping her voice to a loud, conspiratory whisper, ”…and then…we had the most amazing, mind-blowing sex…ever.”
