Bette: “the doctor said that it depends on the evolution of her treatment, if she gets worse we may need to take her to the hospital, but I don’t want to think on that possibility”
Tina: “neither I want”
As they were talking, Tina’s phone rings, she looks at the screen it’s Carrie; her face changes, from peaceful and calm to angry.
Bette: “is there something wrong?”
Tina: “yeah…, it’s Carrie; I have to talk to her”
Bette: “okay, I will be inside the bedroom with Angie”
Tina went downstairs to talk.
Tina: “hello, Carrie”
Carrie: “hello, baby, how is your day going?”
Tina: “what do you want, Carrie?”
Carrie: “Tina, I’m sorry about yesterday, but I was set up by your ex”
Carrie: “yeah, she started talking with me in a very menacing way and I have to tell what I did, besides, Angie is better, right?”
Tina: “listen, Carrie, I think you have crossed the line and it’s not the first time, you did the same days ago with Helena, and I don’t like that, I can’t understand why you are doing this, but if this is how it would be if we marry I prefer to call off the wedding, I will send for my belongs in Toronto, just don’t touch my things”
Carrie: “Tina, baby, what are you saying, I love you, I think your friend and Bette, both are filling your head with lies”
Tina: “Carrie, please don’t make this worse, I’m not going to marry you”
Carrie: “but you love me; that’s why you accepted to be my wife”
Tina: “I accepted before I knew you were possessive and a bully, look, I don’t want to make another big mistake in my life, I just can’t marry you”
Carrie: “damn, Tina, you can’t do that to me, the invitations have been sent, the party, my transfer to L.A., what I’m going to do if you call off the wedding, Tina?”
Tina: “I don’t know, Carrie, but I won’t marry you, you don’t even have compassion for my daughter who is very ill, you don’t have respect for her mother, Bette, who, like me, was in deep pain for our daughter and you don’t have any consideration for my work and my friends calling them behind my back, who do you think you are to disrespect all of us? I’m sorry, Carrie, I won’t marry you and you can do with your life whatever you want”
Tina hangs up the phone and seats in the kitchen crying with anger and sadness; after a few minutes, she composes herself and goes upstairs to take care of Angie.
Bette sees her entering the bedroom; Tina’s eyes are still red.
Bette: “hey, are you okay?”
Tina: “yeah…, I will”
Bette looked at her and for the first time in the last 12 years, she feels that she needs to console her ex, yes, her memory lane traveled back on time when Tina, left Henry and she consoled her, when Jodi broke with her and it was Tina who consoled and advised her, what good friends and lovers were them those years, that feeling never disappeared, it was there under their skin, and in the last three days the feeling has surfaced again.
Bette: “do you wanna talk about that?”
Tina: “uh-hu, I don’t understand her, why she did that yesterday, she didn’t have the right to talk to you in that way”
Bette: “Tina, apparently she feels that she has the right”
Tina: “but she doesn’t and she never before showed that possessive and stupid behavior… I can’t understand what’s happening with her…,”
Tina was looking down and Bette watching her.
Bette: “is this the first time?”
Tina: “that she calls someone to talk about me behind my back? No, the first time was this past week, she called Helena and told her not to tell me, but Helena had to tell me, she’s my friend”
Bette: “and that time, did you ask Carrie why she did that?”
Tina: “I was going to, I was really angry with her, but she has this way to talk and evade the subject, she said that we’ll talk when I go back there and asked me to advance my flight, and yesterday she did the same calling you behind my back, who does she think she is?”
Bette: “Tina, can I ask you a question?”
Bette: “do you love Carrie?”
