Before entering the club, she sees a Taxi and goes over and knocks on the window. “Can you give me 3 minutes? I’ll pay you extra if you hold this for me?”
The guy turned around and shrugged… “sure, but it’s going to be an extra $100.”
Tina turned around and headed towards the noisy club with the long line out front. Heading back towards the VIP section, she hears Alice’s voice.
“Hey you, we order you another southern comfort but I was hoping we could all take some tequila shots.” The blonde shouted towards her.
Ignoring the blonde, Tina turns towards Bette and grabs her hands.
“Look, what I’m about to say right now is going to confuse you and I don’t have the time to explain and I’m sorry, but I have to go to D.C. right now.”
Furrowing her brows, Bette looks at Tina and notices the tear stains etched into her face. “What’s wrong?”
The rest of the group notices Tina is slightly shaking.
“A friend of mine got hurt and I have a one-way ticket that leaves in 3 hours so I have to quickly get home and pack.”
“I’ll come with you…” Bette says getting up, an amalgamation of confusion and worry on her face.
“I have only one ticket and you need to stay with Angie because I don’t know how long I’ll be gone for…I have to go. Now. I’ll call you tomorrow, I promise.” Tina kissed Bette gently on the lips and turns around and heads for the doors.
“Wait-…” Bette starts to move towards the exit when Kit grabs her arm.
“Look, Baby Girl I don’t know what that’s all about but what are you doing to do? Tee has only one ticket and you need to stay here with Little Porter.”
Not liking the sound of it, Bette tries to go towards the exit again only to be pulled back by Kit. “Let me go.”
“I hope TK’s friend is okay,” Alice interrupts. “I wonder what happened…”
“Why D.C.? I thought Tina was from North Carolina?” Helena asked slightly tipsy but concerned.
“You do know people have the ability to move right?” Shane arched her brow towards the Englishwoman.
Squinting her eyes towards Shane, she looks at Bette who looks utterly confused, worried, and slightly agitated that Kit won’t let go of her.
“We will find out tomorrow, but how about we all head over to your place and see if Tina is still there and we can just hang out over there, okay?” Shane says trying to find an equal ground.
“Okay…that’ll work.” Kit grabs Bette’s hand and the rest of the group follows out of the front door.
