Santa Monica Hospital – Los Angeles, March, Friday 13th, 7:30 pm
Bette has parked her car and rushes toward the ER building, she has been crying in the way from the university, soon she sees Tina standing close to a nursing post with her face covered by her hands, presumably crying too; the brunette approached coming for behind.
Tina turns around, her face is red and her eyes are swelling, definitely, she was crying and had her dress wet in the side.
Tina: “Bette, Angie’s very sick”
Bette: “where is she?”
Tina: “she’s in radiology; they are doing a chest x-ray right now”
Bette: “I want to see her”
Tina: “her nurse will let us know when she comes back, so you could see her”
Bette: “did you talk to the doctor?”
Tina: “yeah…, the doctor told me she has a very high temperature, she’s been vomiting and is congested”
Bette: “oh my God, how this happened, Tina?”
Tina: “I went to your house at six as we agreed, when she opened the door, I saw in her face that something wasn’t right, she said she was feeling tired and cold, when we were walking to the living room, she passed out, I brought her here immediately”
Bette: “was someone else with her?”
Tina: “I don’t think so, I didn’t see anybody”
It was then when Bette fixed her eyes in the wetted part of Tina’s dress
Bette: “what happened with your dress?”
Tina: (almost crying) “Angie was coughing and nauseous, she vomited at the door, I was holding her, I clean a little in the restroom, I wanted to change but I didn’t want to leave her alone”
Bette: “shit, she was vomiting; I need to know how she is now”
Tina: “they gave her an injection, she was a little better”
Bette: “oh lord…, Tina, do you have clothes here?”
Tina: “in the car…, can you wait for her while I’ll bring some clothes to change”
Tina went to her car and brought a sweater and pants in a bag and went to the restroom to change, then she put her dirty clothes in the bag and returned to Bette’s side.
Tina: “any news?”
Bette: “they are bringing her in a few minutes”
