Is this love
Tina pulled herself out of the pool and looked at Peggy who was sitting reading. Tina walked across and sat down. Peggy glanced up and spoke to Tina
“I have never seen Bette so out of her depth “
Tina smiled – it was the smile of someone who is fully aware of her powers
“I do have an effect on her “
“Does she have the same effect on you ?”
“Yes – she is utterly stunning Peggy. How could I not just melt when I see her. She is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I could not believe my luck when she asked me out – there was no way in hell I was going to say no “
“Bette – underneath her New York sophistication and gallery owner style she is essentially very old fashioned and may I tell you in case you do not know that she is very easily hurt. I think that you are fairly perceptive but Bette has been hurt a LOT and all her friends are protective of her. She “ Peggy searched for the words “ she is more sensitive than she pretends”
“I have no intention of hurting her “ Tina said firmly “ I love her – all I want to do is to take care of her. I know I am not rich or glamorous like most of the other women that she has been with but I do know that Bette loves me and I will do everything to make her as happy as she makes me. I am not the unfaithful type – I believe in monogamy and I know that Bette does too “
“Not all of Bette’s previous lovers have held that opinion “
Tina fixed Peggy with a very cool stare “ I am none of Bette’s exes. She has done me the honour of being my girlfriend and I promise you that I do not intend to mess this up. I still cannot believe how lucky I am. I am not going to hurt Bette “
Peggy admired Tina’s spirit in fighting her corner in the way that she had. Tina grinned as she stood up
“If you will excuse me Peggy I think that Bette’s back needs scrubbing “
With a wink Tina headed back towards their room leaving Peggy to revise upwards her view of the blonde.
