Morning came quickly, Tina stirring slowly then getting up quietly to use the bathroom before starting the coffee. She knew Bette had a hard time falling and staying asleep, so she wanted to let her sleep in this morning.
Tina was excited about the beach trip, looking forward to four days alone with her girlfriend, moving the relationship to the next step. She was ready. More than ready.
Being away from Bette while in New York was like an ice bucket of cold reality had been thrown in her face. Finally, she had a partner who looked after her in the same way she wanted to take care of them. A partner who listened to a problem and came up with ways to solve it.
Lovingly. Happily. With no strings attached.
Bette’s patience in not pushing Tina into a sexual relationship had an interesting effect on Tina. She was now desperate for Bette. To touch her. To make love to her. To lose herself in the curls, the scent, the softness and the warmth of her body.
There was no hurry to leave since they couldn’t check in until 4:00. It was a three-hour drive so they planned to set out after lunch. Their bags were packed so it was just a matter of a slow morning, picking up Bette’s things at her house and setting out for their vacation. She was beyond excited.
After getting the coffee started, Tina cut some green peppers and other veggies to make an omelet for them to share. She was just adding a bowl of fruit to the tray when she felt strong arms wrap around her waist from behind. She leaned back into Bette, putting the bowl down so that she could reach up and lay her palm on Bette’s warm cheek. Bette rested her chin on Tina’s shoulder, turning her face to kiss Tina on the neck, sighing.
“Morning, Tee” she said softly.
“Morning. I wanted to let you sleep in.”
“I can’t sleep when you’re not with me.” Bette’s voice was deep, she could not have been up for long.
“You were restless last night”
“Only at first. When you tell me everything’s ok, I believe you.”
“I sleep better with you too. I was exhausted yesterday.”
