Tina sat with her feet in the pool her mind was racing, she’s woken up in the middle of night having bad dreams which happened sometimes and now she was just sitting calming herself. She was nursing a cup of herbal tea. Watching the moon reflect in water as she moved her feet. She loved it. She slowly got up and went into the studio, not caring it was three in the morning. She turned the light on studio become light. She picked out a new canvas. Taking out her water colours. She started the paint what she had seen in the water. Painting the canvas, a dark blue and then scrapping away the paint to reflect the moonlight. She got lost in what she was doing, thinking about her art for the first time in days and not the hell she had recently been through.
“Busy?” Bette asked as she walked into the studio, carrying a fresh cup of tea for her wife.
Tina looked up and smiled at her wife, who looked relaxed dressed in jeans, a tank top with her hair up and out of her face.
“I had an idea after a bad dream,” Tina said slowly,
Bette put the mug down and walked around the table to see what her wife was working on. The piece was stunning, the canvas actually looked like the water in the pool and had the moonlight reflected it in perfectly. Bette gasped at it.
“I’m taking it that’s good,”
“Ti, it’s stunning.”
“Thank you,” Tina smiled and yawned as she put her paint brush down.
“How much sleep have you had babe?” Bette asked softly, reaching out and gently pushing a strand of hair out of her wife’s face.
“Not much, I woke four or five times before I had the nightmare,”
“Right you’re going back to bed, let that dry.”
“Okay,” She didn’t protest. She knew she needed some sleep.
Bette took her wife’s hand and led her out of the studio, closing the doors. Tina head upstairs and kicked of her shoes getting into bed, she curled up and closed her eyes. She slowly drifted off to sleep listening to Bette talking to one of Xavier’s nurses
