Tina lay looking at the ceiling of her bedroom. Beside her she could hear her wife breathing softly. she looked at her, just taking her in. she felt lucky that she had found this woman, that this woman was sticking by her through everything. Tina sat up and reached for her notebook and wrote ‘in my studio’ on a piece a paper. She put this onto her pillow. She got up and put on a tank top and baggy trousers. She put her flip flops on. She checked with Xavier and then headed outside. She turned all the lights on in studio lighting it up. She walked over to her drawing board, and took out a new piece of card. She opened the draws to one side of the table and took out some watercolours. She rarely used. She picked up a small glass and filled it with water.
She started to pain, the tress in the garden, the sun setting over the mountains at the back of the house. She could picture what she had seen this evening as she had sat with Bette.
She lost track of time as she sat painting. Her small brush strokes. The details in the picture was amazing, as usual. Her head was down and her mind was open to the painting.
Bette walked down and made herself and Tina a hot chocolate and headed out to the studio. She walked in and smiled at Tina working away
“Hey,” Bette said softly.
“Hi, sorry did I wake you,”
“No baby, I brought you hot chocolate.”
“Thanks,” Tina put the brush down and took the mug that her wife offered her.
“I used to work with watercolours a lot but put them away a few years ago when I started doing the bigger canvas’s but tonight watching the sunset I wanted to use it again.”
“You’re such a talented woman, baby,” Bette kissed the top of her wife’s head.
Tina smiled at her wife’s praise. She loved it.
“I’m sorry I’m awake in the middle the of the night again,”
“Yeah, its okay. Honey. You didn’t run.” Bette said softly. “Seeing the note on your pillow helped. Seeing you in here, just makes my heart sing. Seeing you painting is everything. You do need to sleep. This can be done after eight hours of sleep.”
