Bette slowly turned and walked away from the house, feeling just as hopeless as when she boarded the plane from Los Angeles…
One week later…
Bette looked out the cab window and saw her friends’ cars parked in her driveway. She sighed, not at all in the mood for company. After paying the driver, she grabbed her bag from the trunk and walked up to the house.
When she opened the door, the gang stood up and looked at her with hope.
Bette stared at her sister and friends and gave a dejected shrug. ”Nothing…I couldn’t find her; I don’t know where the fuck she is….”
Kit stepped over to her sister. She was about to bring her in for a hug, but Bette’s ringing cell phone stopped her.
Bette anxiously grabbed her phone from her pocket and quickly answered. ”H…hello?”
”You flew to my parent’s house in South Carolina looking for me?” Tina said.
Bette closed her eyes and gulped, trying to hold in her emotions. ”Yes…I didn’t know what else to do…nobody has heard from you…. seen you…. where are you?”
”I’m where I need to be right now, Bette…. which is away from you….”
Bette’s heart broke when she heard the hurt and anger in Tina’s voice. She leaned against the door and gently nodded. ”Understood….do you need anything?”
Bette sighed and dropped her head. ”I… I found the pregnancy test in the trash, Tina…. you’re pregnant?”
Tina gulped and took a beat before responding. ”Yes…”
”Fuck…. T, when are you coming back home…. where are you?”
”I told you it’s none of your business…I have to go, Bette….”
Bette felt her hurt begin to shift to annoyance and anger. ”No, wait, you can’t just tell me you’re pregnant and just hang up, Tina…what the fuck….”
”Yeah, Bette, what the fuck is right… you have derailed our entire fucking lives because you couldn’t resist getting pussy on the side….so fuck you….”
”Are you in Los Angeles, at least?” Bette asked as she pushed herself off the door and began to pace.
Tina allowed a few beats to pass before she responded. ”No….”
”When are you coming back?” Bette asked again, her body buzzing with panic.
”I don’t know…” Tina quietly responded.
