“Especially to calm her down,” Alice said as she saw Kit walking up towards them.
“Calm who down?” Kit asked, plopping down in one of the seats as she looked at the two women. “What’s happening.”
“Tasha texted,” Alice said, looking at the older Porter, “Tina is here…”
“I fucking knew it,” Kit nodded, clapping softly, “there was no way Tina wouldn’t come out here when she heard Dana was one of the victims.”
“Yeah, but now I have to break the news to Bette,” Shane said, slinging her bag over her shoulder. “I’ll let you guys know what’s up.”
Kit nodded as she watched Shane walk away before reconnecting her eyes to Alice, “my baby girl is going to lose it.”
“I think she nearly lost it this morning,” Alice said, sighing as she leaned back in her seat. “I can’t wait to see her though,” the blonde smiled, looking down at her coffee. “I really should have stayed in contact with her.”
“Hey,” Kit said, reaching forward to rest a hand on Alice’s back, “we all lost contact with Tina within the first year- life just got in the way, honey, for all of us. Besides, it was uncomfortable to be talking to her- knowing that she wasn’t talking to baby girl.”
“I know,” Alice smiled softly, “I just wonder how much I missed…”
“And I’m sure Tina is thinking the same thing,” Kit said, wrapping her arm around the writer.

Hearing a soft knock at the door, she furrowed her brows before relaxing when she saw Shane’s head peeking through.
“Rough morning?” Shane asked, sneaking into the office and closing the door behind her.
“You could say that,” Bette answered, running a delicate hand through her hair, “what are you doing here? I thought you were going to call me?”
“I think this should be done in person,” Shane said, looking directly into Bette’s dark eyes.
Bette felt her heart begin to speed up at Shane’s answer, “Oh God… she’s here, isn’t she?”
