Chapter 42 Turn the table around
California, LA. Dana’s place.
Bette pulls out different clothes from the drawer and tosses them into the bag.
“What are you doing? Baby sis?”
Kit Porter rolls her eyes. “My eyes can see that you are packing, my beloved sister, I mean where the hell are you going?”
“To Washington D.C.”
“Tina, she’s going to find Tina.” Lara says while walking out of the kitchen.
Hearing this, Kit puts her hands on her hips.
“Tell me she’s wrong, Bette.”
“Unfortunately, she’s right,” Bette says, not stopping what she’s doing. “I’m going to find Tina, she’s at the FBI headquarters, I am going to bring her back.”
“But she said…”
“She said not to come for her, I know, so I will only stay outside until the time is up.”
“What time?” Dana asks.
“The 48 hours rule,” Bette says as she zips up the bag. “The FBI can only keep the suspect for no more than 48 hours if they found no evidence that can prove the suspect is guilty, now it’s being almost a day, another 24 hours if they still find nothing, Faye fucking Buckley has to let Tina go.”
“But how do you know they find nothing? What if they just directly accuse Tina od being Justine Cooper? Well, she is, but…” Dana says.
“If they’ve found anything, I wouldn’t be able to stand here,” Bette says, she grabs the bag. “I’m leaving to LAX, I’ll be there in five hours.”
“You are seriously going?” Kit asks.
“Yeah, what do I look like to you?”
Dana stands up. “I’ll come with you.”
Bette and Kit turn their heads at the same time.
“I’ll come with you.” Dana says as she walks back to her room and starting to pack.
Bette follows her to her bedroom. “Dane, you don’t have to…”
“But I want to,” Dana shrugs. “Furthermore, as an athlete, I have a Certificate of emergency rescue, if anything happened to Tina, I think I can give a helping hand.”
“She has a point.” Lara smiles.
Bette turns her head, finding Lara is leaning on the door frame. “Really?”
“Dana knows what she’s doing, I know too, we want to help Tina. Even if it’s just a little help, going to Washington is the least we can do.”
