    Sequel Chapter 7 – Heading Home

    Don’t let that old fool and his bigotry rule your life

    Girrrrllll – You’ve gotta live your own life

    I see the way you look at Tina and the way she looks at you

    Like nobody else exists for either of you

    I hear the love in your voices when y’all talk about each other

    Hold onto that woman you got and love her with all you got

    She’s the one babe girl . . . She’s always be the one . . .

    And Bette was determined to do just that.

    For the last time.

    She had failed Tina all those years ago in not standing up to her father, but there would be no hesitation now to stand by Tina for the rest of their lives. No matter what challenges they would face together. Right by Tina’s side was where she belonged.

    Take that chance Porter.

    Her mind refreshed and her heart set, the tall brunette circled back to the large display and finally selected a bracelet herself.

    “What do you think?” Bette asked her girlfriend as Tina also circled back to where Bette was standing but from the opposite direction. Bette held up the black leather wrapped bracelet for the blonde to inspect. A silver clasp connecting it together.

    “I like it. It’s you. Earthy yet an elegant etching. I think you need a matching necklace too babe.” Tina grinned as she clasp the bracelet around Bette’s right wrist. Trying it on her for effect. “Nice.”

    “Really?”

    “Oh course honey.” Tina reached for a matching design in a necklace style on the display case and held it up for Bette to examine. A silver closure and sterling silver feather pendent. It was striking. The producer’s eyes smiling. “You like?”

    “I like everything I see.” Bette answered, smirking and not limiting her likes to the proffered jewelry.

    “Behave Porter.” Tina chuckled, knowing Bette was talking more about her than the bracelet and necklace. “Angie’s right behind you and can hear you.”

    “If you say so.” Bette leaned forward and placed a small kiss on Tina’s lips.

    “You know, feathers represent strength and growth.” Tina stated as she latched the necklace around Bette’s long, lovely neck.  It settled within the long oval of Bette’s other necklace that held the two rings she always wore. “As well as hope and freedom.”

    “Seems appropriate for me now I guess.” Bette smiled in wonder, touching the silver etched feather with the tips of her fingers. “But babe, how do you know this stuff?”

    “I’m in the movie business honey.” Tina rested her hands on the brunette’s chest, admiring the necklace and her beautiful lover. “Of course I know everything about imagery.”

    “Yeah, I guess you do.” Bette bowed once again to Tina’s knowledge of all things entertainment. “Matching necklace for you too my love?”

    “We’ll start a new trend.” Tina grinned her smile that Bette loved so much and found irresistible. Her dimples deep and adorable.

    “I’ll take that chance too Kennard.” Bette gazed into the blonde’s playful eyes, caught in the wonder of the beauty before her. “It sounds like a wonderful plan.”

    “Deal Porter.” Tina laced her fingers with Bette’s, feeling her strength and seeing their future in the brunette’s joyful eyes . . . .

      • Hey Izzie –

        Thank you so much for the praise!!!

        If only it was that simple & quick to write!!!

        Thanks for following along on this journey. I think there’s 2 chapters left to post & then a break for a while & an eventual revisit later this year.

        Take care & stay tuned!!!

    1. Wow, there was so much in this chapter!

      I agree with Izzie – Perfect!!!

      Love Tibette back together on all counts and in all ways. They are such a terrific couple – even after all these years and all they have been through. Gives us hope for our own lives and true love.

      Seems that the long weekend in Toronto was a very good thing for both Bette and Tina.

      I have to tell you Collins, that I had reservations about how you were going to fix this GQ mess and you have done a fantastic job of it! Thank you so much for giving us this treasure of a story.

      Loved the insight from Angie on her parents and how they are with each other. She so knows them so well and is extremely happy for them. She and Bette get along so well together and team up like old pros vs Tina. And Tina just takes it in stride and laughs at their silliness. Great fun.

      Like this part of the scene when they are leaving the ski lodge and Angie looks back at her parents – she is just so happy for them and her question about their activities the night before finally was answered –

      ‘Bette and Tina had made love again last night. They had indeed taken a quick power nap in the chopper on the ride back to the city of Toronto. Once airborne, Angie had turned and smiled back at her parents. Their affectionate actions towards each other today demonstrating to Angie that they had indeed ‘gotten lucky’ last night. The teenager had chuckled to herself and shook her head. One quick glance back at her parents as they shared a quick kiss and then Tina snuggled onto Bette’s chest as the brunette wrapped her right arm around the blonde. Angie had smiled to herself and had gone back to enjoying the view from the chopper.’

      And when she tried to get them to separate in Tina’s apartment the next morning on their way out the door –

      ‘They acted like new found lovers. Angie had giggled several times since Sunday morning when her parents picked up her and Emma. She had caught her parents with roaming hands and directed eye contact when they thought she hadn’t been looking. The silly grins and quiet whispers to each other. The sparkling eyes whenever they glanced at each other. The teenager knew those types of looks exchanged between her parents and also knew what the end result would be.’

      ‘She caught them locked in an embrace this morning as they were getting ready to leave the apartment. Their arms wrapped around each other. It had suddenly gotten quiet and Angie surmised they had connected again. Hugging each other and tender kisses exchanged. They had been attempting to put their coats on, but one touch had led to another caress and then . . . Well .’

      It just speaks volumes of how things should be in their family and as Tibette as a couple.

      I know I’ve said this before, but the pictures you use are always so good and fit in the story so well. Love them.

      And the end when Tina suggests Bette take a different approach to their lives and start anew with a more relaxed image in her everyday business life. That little conversation with Kit was great. And how fitting advice even all these years later.

      Thanks for a wonderful chapter and please keep it going – we need a happy story!!

      • Hey Leigh,

        Wow – what a great comment!! Thank you so much.

        You are right – lots & lots in this chapter. Tying up some of these loose ends & getting the family back to LA/Silver Lake where they can resume being a family & build on the future together.

        And you are so right about Angie & her perception of her parents & wanting them back together. I’m sure over the years, she has seen a LOT of stuff happen between them – mostly good I hope. So I am trying to expand on that & provide them with new happy memories. Even though Covid isn’t in this story, there has been lots of unsettling emotions for all three of them & I’m sure at times during the past 3 years – a year before the divorce & then the 2 years they were divorced – they were a lot of missed emotions, tears & wishful thinking. Now they get the chance to make these new memories & be happy for a change. Too often in life, we take these little everyday events for granted & don’t stop to ‘smell the roses’ along the way!!

        Thanks for sticking around & seeing this story through. I know it hasn’t always been an easy ride – some bumps along the way & lots of forgiveness given.

        I hope that the pictures in each chapter enhance the storytelling & for each scene.

        Thanks so much for your thoughts!!

        • I so love these new memories and the togetherness that goes with it.

          You are so right about sometimes missing these moments in our own lives for whatever reason and not taking the opportunity to enjoy those moments when they happen.

          Don’t mind a bumpy ride once in awhile – it was well worth every bump along the way. I really appreciate all the details you put into your writing – it makes it so much more believable and realistic. You are a great storyteller.

          Can’t wait for where they go next!

      • Hi Deanna,

        Would sure like this to be a path that is taken in GQ, but I don’t think anything like this is going to happen unfortunately. Think we will all be disappointed by what happens this season on the show.

        Keep praying & hoping for the best!!!

        Thanks for reaching out & letting me know you liked the chapter.

        All the best

        Collins

      • Hey Zhenya,

        You are so welcome for the chapter & thank you for reading.

        As I mentioned before, the Jessica character was originally going to be used as a foil to make Bette jealous, but I decided to take a different route & then had to figure out how to exit her from any log term interaction with Tina.

        What I’ve written became the route out of that situation & it provided Tina a chance to be back in LA much, much sooner than originally planned & all for the better.
        Jessica gets a super job promotion, gets to stay in Canada with her lady love & Tina gets to stay in LA with Bette & Angie & build their future together. Winners all around!!!

        Didn’t mean to mislead anyone, but I think this is a much better path for Tibette.

        Stay well & enjoy the spring weather!!!

    2. Thank you for this great chapter – it was really fun – lots of family time and some great conversations between Bette and Tina. They have really reconnected on all levels. So loving with each other and now accepting of the other on all levels too.

      So true that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Love how they tease each other too.

      Just lovely!

      Please post soon!

      • Hi Kira,

        These are the lighter moments in their relationship reconnection. We only got a few short scenes of this in OG & nothing at all in GQ, so I’ve imagined some fun moments for them.

        Their passion for each other has never really gone away – we could even see some of it in the 2 episodes in GQ – the way they look at each other – sparks still happening!!!

        Thanks for commenting.

    3. Hi Collins,

      It’s already a year ago you started with this story, congratulations! It was one bumpy ride and see were our couple is now, happy and really in love, ready to spend their life together again. A amazing smart and lovely daughter who love them, support them and likes to tease them and gets it right back. Yes, you did a amazing job to try to fix the mess GQ left behind!

      It took me awhile before i had enough time to read this chapter and wow it was a brilliant chapter and the images you used, very fitting!

      I loved to read LeighS comment, she is spot on with it! And i am glad Jessica is not the assistent with a crush on Tina, but hey, who wouldn’t have a crush on her or Bette!

      Bette and Tina really show they have grown, talk about all kind of things and most important about their feelings, they don’t shy away anymore. I am not sure they need couples therapy but it could be good for them both to see one on their own, Bette to finally deal with the loss of her sister Kit and her abondenment issues and Tina to avoid falling into the same mistakes and just check in every now and then.

      I am looking forward to the next chapter!

      • Hey Bibi,

        It has been a quick year & so eventful on this site. Thanks for the support as always. You are a true friend!!

        It’s been a pleasure to write a better path for them than GQ offered & there will be a permanent favorable ending to their story.

        There was a lot going on in the chapter & lots to look forward to also. They both have walked the long journey back to each other & have committed themselves to this lasting relationship.

        There will be some introspection in the next chapter & they will take another leap forward in their relationship.

        You take care & see you next chapter!!!

    4. Hi Collins:

      Great chapter, wonderful reconnection.

      Very romantic as it should be. here we can see why TIBETTE is endgame.

      Nice scenes of the family enjoying their time together.

      Agree with the other comments we should change GQ by this story.

      Thank you for this beautiful chapter.

      P

      • Hey P,

        Thanks for taking a few minutes & commenting. It means a lot.

        I think all of us who appreciate this site are all in favor of Tibette as endgame!!!!

        Yes, if only a similar storyline like this could be incorporated into GQ!!!! That would be sweet for us Tibette fans!!!

        Saw you just posted an update too & I will be reading it soon!!!

        Thanks my friend.
