In all the years of their long relationship Tina had never seen Bette look at her like she was right now. Used to the many different gazes of love, of lust, of pure desire … even of anger or despair, confusion and… hurt, regrettably, of course. Many times, Bette looked at her with sweet fondness, or amusement. Those she knew. There was sassy and incredulous and surprised, many versions, Tina knew she was pretty good at reading the facial cues Bette displayed, even from across a crowded room.
Bette’s face was often a poetry of emotion, she was terrible at poker, worse at Charades. When seeing their first house on a tour before buying, Tina knew she should just hand a check over to the realtor, there was no hiding that Bette loved it. Hard to negotiate when your girlfriend’s face is beaming.
Today, she was helping Tina out of the tub, one hand holding the blonde’s and a strong arm around her back just in case. With her pregnancy in it’s final month and after a scary fall going up the front steps a week ago, Bette insisted that if Tina was to indulge in a bath, and indulge she must, then she would have to agree on support when entering or leaving the tub. Even better would be for Bette to join her and the hotel they were in had tub so large they both fit comfortably, which was one reason Bette booked the room in the first place.
Tina felt unwieldly to say the least, large and clumsy, swollen and stretched to a size she neither recognized nor welcomed. Her ankles were gone, her toes hidden by her belly and her breasts so heavy they actually rested on her baby bulge. Her face was fuller, her fingers so big she had to take her wedding ring off which made her cry off and on for an entire afternoon until Bette came home from work and found a gold chain so she could wear it around her neck. Her hormones, coursing through her body, dictated her reactions beyond her control and that too was a source of irritation. There was nothing about her body that resembled the toned, athletic, muscular frame she was used to.
