“Yes, baby,” replied unmistakable voice, sleepy and sexy.
It was too much. Stress and anxiety of the last three months of unknown, of waiting was so nerve wrecking that Tina’s mind went blank and she fainted.
Outside, the dawn was barely breaking. The bushes in front of the house were big enough to hide a person from the view of anyone on the inside. The figure remained in crouching position for a long time, until there was no doubt that the women inside didn’t notice anything unusual. After almost an hour, when it was obvious that the occupants of the house didn’t hear or see the intruder, the figure slowly approached the side of the building where the lights were on and the kitchen came into a view.
Two familiar women were sitting at the table, talking and drinking coffee. “When did she get here? I haven’t see her coming in,” the person frowned and tried to get closer to see if the conversation could be overheard. It was the middle of summer and the air around was filled with humidity and heat, even in this early hour of the morning. It smelled like wet leaves and tree bark. The sun was out already and the intruder began feeling uncomfortable with sweat running down her spine.
The kitchen window was slightly open and it was enough to hear part of the conversation…
“Just let her seep a little. I think Tina had quite an ordeal last nigh so she need some rest,” Alice commented as she poured fresh coffee into the mugs.
Bette nodded, “Yes, I kind of got that impression when she fainted just from the sight of me.”
“Does it get better, to go through the portal?” Alice asked as Bette hungrily drunk her coffee.
“Not really,” Bette shook her head pensively. “I could feel a lot of pressure around, like all the air was getting to be sucked out of you. But it’s over so fast and the relief is so overwhelming, that the uncomfortable feeling doesn’t matter in the end. Well, you know.” Bette finished her coffee and went for another refill. “Thank God, it’s all over. I’m not going anywhere.”
“Good,” Alice nodded, “though, even if you wanted to, it won’t be possible anyway. If anyone goes back to 1800’s, they won’t be able to return. The portal will be sealed forever after that one last trip.”
