Bette woke before Tina and checked the clock by the bed.
They had slept later than ever before on a workday. She sighed and laid her head back on the pillow as she woke fully, rubbing her eyes. She wanted to stay home today, Tina would need her and Bette knew she would not get anything done if Tina was here and she was at work. She reached quietly for her phone to text James.
“Tina has been in a running accident. I am working from home. Email me lighting plan, menu, and get valet and cleaning crew confirmed…”
She peered over Tina’s shoulder to see if she was waking and smiled to find that Tina was out, out cold. Her breathing was deep and regular, her body heavy.
Her hair covered most of her face, her pink lips open slightly. Must be the pills from Shane, Bette thought, glad Tina could rest, hoping she would hurt less when she did wake.
She wrapped her arm tight around her wife and buried her face in the back of Tina’s neck, breathing deeply in her familiar scent, closing her eyes briefly in thanks for the gift that was her wife.
There had been many and more months where she had woken up alone.
Bette loved waking up next to Tina.
Loved the way her body felt next to her, warm and comfortable, the softness of her, the smell of her. She loved that she was the first thing Tina looked for when she woke. Loved the morning snuggles, the bleary-eyed looks Tina gave her as she emerged from sleepiness.
She thought back on the story Tina had told her of Eric and Lucy. The story that explained so much about Tina’s reaction to Candace, her sacred flight to Henry, her decision making.
Tina groaned in her sleep and turned instinctively towards Bette, her head snaking down to rest on her wife’s chest, then moving a little lower to snuggle into Bette’s breasts, her lips soft on her skin, kissing her intuitively.
Tina sighed, her breathing deepening even as Bette’s heart sang. She loved when Tina sought her out in her sleep. Tina mumbled something and her body sunk back into oblivion, practically melting into Bette’s.
