Bette huffed as she angrily stuffed her clothes into her suitcase, her sour mood worsening with each article of clothing she carelessly piled on top of the one before.
She hated how upset she had gotten considering the blissful way she had entered the house a few hours earlier, her mind and body still reeling from her confrontation with Tina.
Bette paused as she reached for a shirt from the pile on her bed, a soft smile tugging at her lips. She almost questioned as to whether or not it had all been a dream, if a kiss as incredible as the one she had shared with the blonde could have only happened in her mind.
Bette would have doubted reality had her phone not lit up with a text that widened her smile.
I know we agreed on distance but I just wanted you to know that I can’t stop thinking about you .. and that kiss.
A booming voice from behind Bette startled the brunette and completely ruined the effect Tina’s text had on her.
“I take it this means you will not be joining us for dinner”
Bette’s bad mood returned full force, her mind replaying the events that occurred once the brunette had entered her childhood home.
She had initially planned to keep to herself, not wanting to tarnish her reunion with Tina by arguing with her father.

He simply sat in his reading chair as if nothing had happened.
That was when the brunette had lost what little restraint she possessed and started a frustrating conversation with the most stubborn man on the planet. It ended with Kit advising Bette to retreat to her room to cool off which inadvertently encouraged the brunette to pack her things.
A creak in the wooden floor reminded Bette that her father was still behind her, no doubt waiting for an answer to a question that yet again disregarded a situation that affected the brunette to no end.
She snatched a shirt from the pile and resumed packing, “Were you ever going to tell me?”
