Tina is at her desk, preparing her trip to Los Angeles for the next morning, she is in her laptop, retrieving her boarding pass and making sure it will show on her cell phone app; she is also revising her hotel reservation, a room for one, the rest of her documents are almost ready; it’s nearly noon, and as every Sunday, she and Carrie will have lunch in the Scaramouche; but before she wants to be sure that all her documents and scripts are in her traveling tablet.
She has spoken with Angie just yesterday evening and her daughter is eager to meet her tomorrow for dinner; Tina isn’t sure if it would be a good idea to invite Bette to join them, after all, the last time she and her ex-wife saw each other the situation wasn’t very nice. It happened when Tina and Carrie went to Los Angeles to meet Bette and tell Angie about her wedding plans.
The meeting was polite, stern and quick; or course, there was no additional topic to talk about; Tina could see the sadness in Angie’s face and the fake smile in her ex-wife’s; she couldn’t avoid the feeling of a lump in her throat and a piece of sharp ice tearing her heart, but this was already decided; the only person who seemed enjoy the introduction, as the upcoming stepmother, was Carrie.
The sound of steps took Tina’s concentration away from her online work; a beautiful light skin African American is approaching.
Carrie: “Tina, baby, are you done? If we don’t hurry up, the Scaramouche will be crowded”
Tina: “I’m almost done; I will use the afternoon to pack”
Carrie: “I’m still not sure if I’ll be fine while you’re there alone for one week”
Tina: “I have to do this Carrie, I need to take command of that show, if I delay, I may lose it all”
Carrie: “couldn’t Helena wait a few days? I could go with you next week, I’m sorry I can’t go now, there is an urgent contract I have to take care of, you know that.., Tina…, what if you need to stay longer?”
Tina: “I’ll call you, but, honestly, I don’t think so”
