“Hold the door”, a striking strawberry blond woman called out as she ran towards the flight attendant.
”Ms. Kennard”? The young female attendant inquired.
Tina knodded her head as she pulled out her phone to show her boarding pass.
”So glad you made it. We held the plane as long as we could”. The attendant said smiling.
Tina thanked her and proceeded to board the plane. She had left so quickly that she only had time to pack a small bag. If she missed anything she would just have to buy it when she got there, she thought.
Tina sat in her window seat in the coach section. It was a tight fit, but she wasn’t complaining. She was lucky to get on this flight at the last minute. Luckily for her, Shelly Paule, her assistant was well acquainted with short notice flight arrangements.
Tina thought about her conversation with Angie last night. Angie knew better then to call unexpectedly unless it is an emergency. They have had a pre-arranged time to talk ever since Tina left Los Angeles to work on her current film project. Tina’s unpredictable schedule made it difficult to have spontaneous talks with her daughter, but they did text from time to time when something special occurred. Tina had been on location outside of Vancouver when Angie’s call came. It took Tina several minutes to calm Angie down to understand what had happened. Through the sobbing, Angie described the conflict that occurred in front of her school. Tina immediately became angry at Bette for pulling their daughter into the middle of her indiscretion.
”Mom, it wasn’t Momma B’s fault. Uncle Shane, Aunt Alice and her friends were all there when it happened. Momma B tried to get me out of the situation, but it was me who stepped in the middle. I know I shouldn’t have, but I was afraid for Momma B. I am really scarred about what is going to happen. I have never seen Momma B like this. She pushed him really hard when he knocked me down. He was just laying there.” Angie took a deep breath. ”I know you’re busy, but can you please come, we need you.” Angie asked hopefully.
