Tina was having a hard time concentrating at work. For starters, Aaron had assigned the new intern to her schedule, so she had a shadow all day as she moved about the set. She would have to find something else for the intern to do. Secondly, Jodie was proving that she was not a team player on the development of the metal jungle. Wanting to use her own sketches and blatantly ignoring the vision of the Art Director, Tina had had to step in twice to cool tempers. Tina didn’t know why she was surprised. Jodie always did what she pleased, expecting everyone else to follow along or move out of her way. Tina would have to do something to contain Jodie’s artist expression within the direction of the shoot.
Jodie’s interpreter, Tom, was helpful but she would ignore his input as well. Elena worked quietly and surprisingly quickly. She stuck to the design and kept out of everyone’s way. Now that she was clean and had money, she was proving to be reliable and smart. Tina actually kind of liked her, admired her pluck. And she was good. Really good. No mistaking her talent.
Mostly though, Tina was struggling to stay focused because all she could think about was Bette. Her wife. Hers. Again. She could not get her out of her head. Her low chuckle rang in her ears, the softness of her cheek resting on her own, and the feel of her body pressed against hers…
She felt like a teenager all over again, discovering her first love. They had been back together for only a few short months but in many ways, Tina felt like they were discovering each other for the first time. She was mesmerized by her wife, much as she was when they first met. She was thinking about her all time and they were inseparable, enjoying each other’s company in ways they had not when they were together before.
Bette had started staying in the kitchen while she cooked dinner, letting Tina teach her simple culinary tasks as she prepared dinner. “Show me” she would say sweetly, and she was sincere in her efforts to learn. At first, she was limited to more of the simpler tasks that she had had to learn when she was single – boiling water, making a salad, or grilling. But she was learning more complicated dishes as this became part of their routine.
