Tina raised her brows, impressed, “you have a gallery? Where?”
Bette’s smile slightly faded, “Los Angeles.”
Tina smiled and nodded, pulling her hand back from Bette. “You’re not from around here?”
Bette shook her head before pulling the blonde’s hand back in her lap, “no.”
Tina licked her lips, “how long are you here for?”
Bette looked up into the blonde’s hazel eyes-still playing with the blonde’s fingers, “2 weeks.”
Tina smiled sadly before brushing away a curl that escaped from it’s hold, tucking it gently behind Bette’s ear.
Tina shook her head, “it’s okay. I wasn’t expecting anything.”
Bette furrowed her brows at that statement, “what do you mean?”
Swallowing hard, Tina stood up and looked at Bette. “I think we have a connection.”
Bette nodded eagerly, standing up as well, “I think so too.”
Tina smiled sadly once more before turning and leaving the bar-headed towards the exit.
Bette quickly looked over at Alice to see her engaged in a talk with some woman. Taking her phone out, she sends a quick text to the blonde and let her know she was leaving.
Still seeing the back of Tina’s head, Bette quickly made her way out onto the busy street to see her leaning against the wall.
“Where are you staying?”
“A few blocks up the road,” Bette whispered, leaning forward to catch the blonde’s lips.
Gently pressing her hands against the brunette’s chest, Tina cocked her head. “Well, let’s go.”
Bette nodded, grabbing a hold of Tina’s hand and walking in silence down the street near the hotel.
Tina stopped walking as Bette was leading them inside the lobby.
“What’s wrong?” Bette asked, coming back out and leaning towards Tina.
Tina smiled, “I just wanted to make sure you got home safe.”
Bette furrowed her brows in confusion, “you’re not coming in?”
“Bette,” Tina said as she took a step forward and gently brushed the brunette’s cheek-watching Bette’s eyes flutter, “this may sound a bit crazy.”
Bette shook her head, leaning further towards the blonde, not being able to get enough of the blonde’s touch.
“I can’t fall for you anymore than I already have,” Tina whispered against Bette’s cheeks.
Bette’s eyes opened, looking into the deep hazel eyes.
“You’re leaving in 2 weeks,” Tina whispered sadly. Gently playing with a dark curl, “let us just end it here.”
Bette shook her head- her brain telling her that she should just stop-her heart telling her not too.
“I’m no good for you, Bette Porter,” Tina smiled, kissing the brunette once more before slowly backing away. “Trust me.”
“No-Tina,” Bette said, coming forward and pressing the blonde against a poll.
Bette shook her head before kissing the blonde passionately. Her tongue snaking in and brushing against Tina’s as her hands wrap tightly around the black lace. Breaking the kiss, she looked up at the now dark hazel eyes. “I’m not going to drag you in there…but I don’t want to not see you again.”
Tina swallowed hard, knowing that her heart is going to be broken soon enough-but powerless to say no. She nodded.
Bette let out a sigh of relief as she leaned her forehead against Tina’s. “Can I see you tomorrow?”
Tina nodded, “I’ll meet you here.”
“Noon?” Bette whispered.
