Bette watched her calmly. ”What was it?”
”When you put your finger inside me, it was like something hit me on the head. I couldn’t control it, those images… They literally flooded my brain.”
Bette was confused, but she kept watching her girlfriend without interruption.
”…Images of you putting your fingers inside my sister…” Tina whispered, a pained wince twitching at her face.
Bette’s expression changed drastically at Tina’s crushing revelation. A deep sadness stole into her big eyes and her mouth took a sorrowful curve. Rolling onto her back, Bette stared at the ceiling as she clearly needed a moment to process Tina’s words.
”I don’t know why it happened… I’m sorry…” Tina said faintly.
Rubbing her hand over her face, Bette sighed helplessly. She rolled to her side to look at Tina. ”Do not even apologize for that,” she uttered in a voice that was saturated with remorse. ”It happened because I’m a fucking asshole, a stupid fucking idiot. That’s why it happened,” she added, with more vehemence as she directed all her frustration toward herself.
Tina didn’t respond, but reached up to touch Bette’s cheek with the back of her hand in a comforting gesture.
However, Bette didn’t find any comfort. Deeply affected, she grimaced and groaned in angry self-reproach. ”God, Tina… I’m so sorry…” propping herself up on an elbow, Bette gathered Tina’s hand in hers and kissed it in all reverence and humility, again and again she kissed each of Tina’s fingers, her palm, her knuckles. Looking into the softness of the hazel eyes, Bette whispered, ”I’m so sorry I hurt you. I was so selfish and stupid. It was the lowest of the low. I’m so…so sorry.”
Tina swallowed around the knot of emotion in her throat. She truly believed that Bette was sorry. But she needed to hear something else, something that would make her feel more secure in their relationship, something to increase her trust. ”Will you promise me something please?”
”Promise me you will never betray me again.”
”I promise, Tina.”
Bette stared deeply into Tina’s eyes. ”I promise never to cheat on you again. I promise never to betray you.”
”Will you promise me the same?” Bette asked.
”I will never betray you. I promise,” Tina smiled reassuringly, caressing Bette’s face.
Bette smiled in return. ”Love of my life…”
They kissed and held each other for a long, tender moment before they both finally fell asleep in peace.
