Bette stayed for the entire duration of Tina’s trip. Content to occupy herself during the day with yoga, swimming, museums and bookstores, she also became a regular on the set of Tina’s movie. It was such a thrill for her, a dream really. It was rare that Bette got a front row seat to see her girlfriend shine professionally, to see behind the scenes of a blockbuster movie, the process fascinating to her. With a regular yoga class and all her activities, Bette was as busy as Tina most days.
And one day Bette met an older lady at one of her favorite bookstores and they started talking. She was invited to join a group of nature enthusiasts, a group of single older women that hiked the many trails and swam in the variety of lakes in the area. Tina came back to the hotel one evening to find Bette trying on a special wetsuit, designed for cold water swimming. Bette was quickly addicted to the rush of cold water, the pristine locations, the immersion in nature so pure and untouched. It was invigorating. It was freeing and the group embraced her as one of their own.
They called themselves the “Van-cougars” and a twice a week they planned hikes or a swim in the many lakes and trails around the city. Tina came to watch Bette, sitting on the bank next to the river as Bette entered the cold water, only her face unprotected by the suit she wore. It was exhilarating for both of them, Bette because of the absolute stillness and rush of cold that enveloped her when she swam and Tina because seeing Bette do something so outside her normal comfort zone made her feel giddy with pride. Her girlfriend was so free here, so comfortable in her skin, at peace.
Everyone laughed when Bette made her way quickly to Tina after swimming, now waiting for the brunette with a large fluffy towel. Bette kissed the blonde with blue lips that felt like ice but a tongue that was pure fire, shaking like a leaf but her big laugh booming. Tina warmed Bette’s cheeks with warm hands and hot kisses, loving her beautiful girlfriend all the more.
In return, Bette absolutely sunk into watching Tina work, it was a such a pleasure to see the blonde in her professional element. On set, Tina was clearly respected, adored, admired. Now that her personal life was settled, Tina was able to give fully to the production needed on set. Swiftly returning the movie back to the budgeted timeline, she now expected to finish filming ahead of schedule.
