“I am fine – really hungry “
“It might only be pot luck but you are welcome to come home with me tonight “
“Gone out with some of his pals – burgers were mentioned – as were beers and probably huge stinking cigars “
Bette laughed – every time she smelt cigar smoke it reminded her of her father. He only smoked about one cigar a month but the smell always triggered memories of her childhood for Bette
“Let’s get going “Bette suggested glancing at her watch and wondering what the beautiful blonde who had not been far from the front of her mind was up to at that very moment
Tina knew most of the things that annoyed her mother about her – as she selected an outfit to wear she rattled off the list under her breath “ You are never on time Tina – you are so pretty but you don’t make enough of yourself Tina, your apartment is a mess and needs the decorators in Tina. You have had the best possible education we could give you and you are wasted in that job Tina. You have so much going for you but you settle for such unsuitable women Tina. You bite your finger nails Tina “

Tina showed her in – she was amused to see that Emma was surprised that she had given the apartment a good tidying up. Emma looked at Tina
“Are you ready?” Emma asked dryly
“Won’t be a minute “Tina replied stealing a look at the clock on her DVD – it was a 20-minute journey to the gallery. It was now 6:10pm – Tina needed to stall her mother for another 15 minutes. Right – how was she going to do that?
“Would you like a glass of wine?” Tina asked
“No thank you “
Emma was looking around – when it was looked after it really was a lovely apartment.
“So how have you been? How’s work?”
“I am fine thank you – work is hectic as usual – how is your job “
“It’s good – I was able to use some of the legal knowledge that I picked up by osmosis from you and mom today “
