If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was it everything that you were looking for?
"Fuck, I’m so late"
Bette didn’t even dare to check her watch as she made her way up the steps of her porch, reluctantly unlocking the front door and walking inside.
"T?" Bette called out, her heart beating fast as she waited for an answer that never came.
She placed her keys in a bowl by the door as she balanced the bouquet of gorgeous white lilies cradled in her arm and then made her way over to the couch to remove her jacket. She called for her wife again and was met with more silence, it made her feel horrible.
Bette knew she should have been home hours ago but there was just too much going on at the gallery. She lost track of time and when she finally realized, it was already 11:45. She rushed home as fast as she could, only making a quick stop at her favorite 24 hour grocery store to pick up a bouquet of Tina’s favorite flowers. It was the least she could do.
The brunette finally gathered up the courage to glance up at the clock, feeling a sharp pang in her chest when she saw that it read 12:15. It was official, she had missed her own anniversary.
Bette heard the sound of a door being opened followed by the sound of tiny bare feet slapping the wooden floor and an instant smile spread across her face. She laid the bouquet of lilies on top of her jacket, the trouble she would face with her wife momentarily forgotten as she waited for what would soon round the far corner.
"Momma, momma, mmmmmmmomma!"
Angelica came into sight wearing her favorite "My Little Pony" pajamas, running at full speed as she threw herself into her mother’s arms. It was the same greeting Bette got every night and it brought a big smile to her face then as it did each time, her favorite part being when Angelica stretched out the last "momma" right before she jumped.
