Los Angeles, Bette Porter’s house, Tuesday, noon.
The ring at the door has disconcerted the two moms who were talking in the kitchen, none of them is expecting anybody today, neither the grocery van nor the mail delivery.
Tina: “who do you think it could be?”
Bette: “no idea…, do you think someone is looking for you?”
Tina: “I don’t think so…, perhaps someone from the university wants to see you”
Bette: “no…, they would call first, besides they know I’m quarantining”
Tina: “hmm, it maybe somebody from the hospital”
Another ring at the door stirred the women who looked at the entrance with apprehension. For Bette it was uncertainty and a little fear, could it be Carrie? How could she dare to come to her house? No…, she couldn’t…, but if she was, this couldn’t be a worse moment; now that she and Tina are starting to talk and work things together…, like a family… However, for all Bette has heard that Carrie must be a viper hard to rid of.
For Tina, there is this fear that someone from the hospital may bring bad news, perhaps Jordi is very bad or worse, or perhaps it is the new test for her and her ex…, or maybe it could be someone looking for Bette… one of her many dates…, well she has no right to complain, after all, it was her, Tina, who was going to marry Carrie two or three weeks ago.
Another ring at the door called the attention of the two paralyzed women.
Bette: “we better ask, whoever is there, what they want”
But nobody moved until finally Bette held Tina’s hand and softly pulled her to the door.
Bette: “we look like two little girls home alone at night scared by strange noises”
Tina: (smiling nervously) “you may be right; I hope it won’t be bad news”
Holding hands the two moms went to the door, it was Bette who asked.
Bette: “who is it?”
Maya: “it’s me, Bette, I called to your office and James told me you were working from home, I know Angie is sick and you may need some help, I brought lunch”
Tina lowered the head and her face changed, she released Bette’s hand, which made the brunette look at her with surprise.
