Bette chuckles clearly amused and entertained by the young woman’s arrogance “Interesting. So you would lead the gentleman on into thinking you desired their companionship only to rebuff them in the end. That Tina is not what a true lady of such southern distinction would do”
Tina scoffs “Like you clearly have any experience in the matter or even the authority to dictate how one should act. Furthermore, you have said nothing about any such suitor for yourself”
Bette leans back against the seat and folds her arms “I do not lure any suitor into falsely thinking I desire to entertain such thoughts as marriage. I also do not desire the companionship of the gentleman variety therefore I do not carry on under false pretenses”
Tina snaps her fingers in satisfaction
“Ah ha!…I knew it..You are perverse in homosexuality” Tina asserted cementing her earlier curiosity
Bette rolled her eyes “Clearly you must want some kind of award for coming to that conclusion all on your own”
“It was no conclusion. I already knew by the way you admired me. Your eyes gaze upon me as that of my suitors” Tina surmised as she began to fiddle with the lace of her dress
Bette chuckles “I suppose the reason for your abrupt fidgeting with the lace of your dress is that I make you nervous. Or perhaps it’s because you appreciate that a woman whether or not they are perverse in homosexuality as you have stated can innocently admire your beauty”
Tina chuckles “I am flattered by your admission” then looks at Bette apologetically “..And if my words offended you I truly am sorry”
Bette smiled warmly “Now that Tina is how a true lady of grace would respond” she said proudly as Tina curled her lips into a small smile “And you did not offend me. I did not take it to heart. I absolutely do not care what others think of my choice of companion even though I do not hide it..Of course here in the South it is highly frowned upon so I am careful when I am in public”
“Do you have such a companion back home?” Tina asks rather shyly not meaning it to sound that way but even though Bette annoyed her she found her to be quite fascinating which annoyed her even more so.
