Is this love
Bette walked out of the gallery with her mind racing about what to do about Tina – what the fuck was Peggy playing at. Well Bette knew what Peggy was playing at – she wanted to split up Helena and Emma and she had reached the point when she didn’t care how she did it. Bette was pretty pissed off with Peggy – had she not thought through the consequences of what hiring two escorts to test her daughter and her lover would be if neither took the bait. What really had made Bette angry was it looked like the person who was going to suffer the most was Tina. As soon as Helena had told Bette the whole story she had known that Tina wouldn’t stay working for Peggy after this. Maybe there was a chance that she would be able to talk Tina round but what was the point – Peggy had shattered Tina’s confidence in her. Bette tried Tina’s phone again
“Hello babe – I have just had Emma and Helena at the gallery telling me what stunt that Peggy has pulled. Please call me – we need to talk – I have left the gallery and I am trying to figure out where you are. Babe – I want to be here for you”
Bette hung up and looked around – where would she be ? Well there were a few possibilities -she was at her own place, she had gone to Bette’s place or she was wandering around the streets or in the park. Bette walked to her favourite coffee shop and stood in the queue waiting to get served. While she was standing she was trying to put herself in Tina’s place. Okay – she overhears Peggy saying that Helena had cheated on her mom. She gets up and just walks out of the office. Where is the nearest bolthole she would run to? Well the nearest place to Peabody building was Bette’s house. That would be Bette’s first port of call. She could also dump her case in case Tina wasn’t there and she would need to search around. Bette walked home drinking her coffee and thinking about how to deal with what was the latest obstacle that they were now facing. This would be a huge blow for Tina – she had been so excited when Peggy had offered her such a great job. She had thought that she was on the way back – damn Peggy fucking Peabody. Why could she not have just let Helena and Emma’s relationship take its course ?
