Los Angeles – October 23, 2009- Friday Night
Bette pulled the Lexus into her driveway, put it in park, and let out a deep breath.
“What you thinkin’?” Kit asks. “You haven’t said anything the entire car ride home.”
The brunette in the driver’s seat removed the keys out of the ignition and started to play with them in her hands. “I don’t really know. It all kind of seems like a dream- I can’t believe any of it. It’s like- I have no words.”
“Well how do you feel then?”
Puckering her lips, “pissed, angry, hurt, confused, worried. I feel like the last 10 years of our relationship weren’t fully genuine.”
“Now how can you say something like that?” Kit asked as she reached over to still Bette’s hands. “Her feelings for you are real. You know this, I know this, hell everyone knows this.”
“Yeah, well she obviously doesn’t care enough to tell me that she was a fucking fed and hid her entire life from me!”
Taking a deep breath and trying to find the right words to say to her little sister, “look, she said she did it to protect you. From what? I’m not sure. She didn’t say. I’m sure you have plenty of things that you’ve never told Tina.”
“Yeah, sure like what happened in the 10th grade…” the brunette said sarcastically. “How is that even remotely similar to her not telling me about this-especially if she is still involved which she obviously is otherwise she wouldn’t have rushed out the damn door.”
“Well…what did she tell you when you asked about her past?”
Bette sat silently for a few moments. “She never really talked about it-so I stopped bringing it up. She wanted to focus on the present, and I was fine with that.”
“So, she never lied to you.”
“No…she just never fucking brought it up. How do you not bring something like this up? I mean according to her, this was a very important job and she regarded these people as family which mean they are obviously important to her and she just didn’t ever mention it.”
“She thought you would run away from her… she said before that she was never able to settle down because of her job.”
