Angie will really love this, Bette thought to herself with a smile. She always loves trying new foods with eclectic spices, and this chicken stir-fry will be full of fun flavors for her. I already know how she enjoys noodles. The only thing that would make it better is if Tina could be here, too.
Bette suddenly tensed when she realized her thoughts had found their way back to Tina. Lately, it seemed that no matter what she was thinking about or doing, she found herself wondering about her. How she would feel, what it would be like to share certain moments with her – again – just like they used to. It was becoming more frequent, and Bette had to admit it was starting to become a problem, especially since Tina had left Henry and started dating women again. Oh and then there was that amazing kiss at SheBar a few days back…
I need to get a handle on this, Bette chided herself, I am with Jodi. We are happy, right? Bette grabbed a handful of vegetables to bring to the chopping block on the other counter. Then she heard a light knock on the fridge as she was about to turn around.
Tina. Ohmigod what is she doing here?
“Kit and Angie won’t be back from Anaheim for a couple hours,” Bette blurted out, thinking maybe Tina just wanted some extra time with their little one.
“I came early… I hope you don’t mind,” said Tina in a very soft voice. There was something different about her demeanor, something intangible but very real.
“No, it’s fine.”
Tina walked to the counter with the chopping block, noticing the meal preparation, and asked while glancing around for others, “Are you having a dinner party or something?”
Why is she looking around like that? Oh God, I just realized we are completely alone – did she know that when she came over this early? This cannot be good.
“No, it’s just for Angie. I wanted to feed her before you got here – I told Kit not to let her eat a lot of crap at Disneyland.”
“Oh, yeah right,” chuckled Tina with a slight sigh.
