The train attendant led Tina down a long corridor of the train that went through several cars until he came to a stop
“This is Ms. Porter’s compartment” he acknowledged as he allowed Tina to enter which she did so with entitled intention
“So you decided to share a compartment with me after all?” Bette smirked as she took off her gloves and placed them inside her coat vest
Tina ignored her while surveying the room as the attendant set her cases down. He nodded toward Bette who had handed him a hefty tip for helping Tina
“Thank you kindly” Bette gestured with a wave of her hand. Tina rolled her eyes at the display

Tina scoffed raising her eyebrow “What sort of proposition could you possibly suggest. I’m certainly not going to kiss you if that it is what you are considering. I see the way you look at me” she says smugly
