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.”
“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 . . . .
