IS THIS LOVE
Tina was reluctant to end the kiss but as their lips naturally eased apart she knew that they were strong enough as a couple to withstand anything and everything that happened as a consequence of their relationship now becoming parental knowledge.
Bette put her arm around Tina’s waist and looked at their parents who were all speechless.
“So as you three can guess – Tina and I are now a couple – in a roundabout way your interference worked so we just want to thank all three of you but we still claim victory because you have all been so oblivious to what has been happening under your noses for so long “
Rosemary was the first to react – she jumped up and hurried to the two women
“Oh God – oh this is just fantastic – oh Bette – Tina – I am so happy for both of you – let me hug you both “
Rosemary hugged Bette and then took hold of Tina and gave her a bear hug
“This is just the best – how long have the two of you been together ? we want to know all about it. I just cannot believe how wonderful this is – thank you for telling us on our anniversary – it’s the best present I could have dreamed of”
“Thanks mom – Tina and I have been seeing each other for three months and it going better than either of us could have imagined “ Bette looked at Tina and lent across and kissed her on the cheek “ Its really special – dad ?”
Melvin got up and walked across “I have long thought that you would show yourself to be smarter than both of us – you have out done yourself – I am delighted “
Tina looked at her mother who still looked shocked
“Mom ? please say that you are happy for us. Bette is the most fantastic girlfriend and she’s been so supportive of me – she’s the best thing that has happened to me in years. I love her very much and I know that she loves me too. Its only been 3 months as Bette says but – well we both think that what we have is special “
“I am delighted for you both “ Emma said smiling. She noticeably didn’t get up like Bette’s parents – she stayed holding her wine glass while she observed what was going on. Bette noticed her demeanour and brought forward the “ chat “ she was planning to have with Emma – it was never too soon to put a line in the sand between the two strong, alpha women.
“We want to hear all about it don’t we Emma ?”
“Oh yes “ Emma said “ All about it “
“But we also need to eat “ Melvin pointed out “Lets go and serve dinner – I will help you out darling as you are shaking so much you might spill the gravy and that would never do – come on “
“Would you like me to help ?” Bette asked
“You look happy glued to Tina “
“I am sure Tina can spare me “
“You better believe it – I have heard all about your cooking Rosemary and I am dying to try it “
Bette kissed Tina on the lips before following her parents out of the sitting room.
Tina looked at her mother – she was angry as well as embarrassed about her mother’s reaction which was in such stark contrast to Bette’s parents.
