The Roommates – Fast Forward to 2019: Chapter 38
Bette could feel fury in her veins. She stood on the doorstep of an unfamiliar house and rang the bell, pacing in her heels as she waited for the door to open. It was taking a while, so she rang once more. Bette glanced back at the black limo. Knowing that Carmen was inside and waiting for her gave her strength.
She could do this.
The door finally swung open and Tina’s hazel eyes grew as large as saucers.
Bette was standing at her front door. How could Bette Porter be standing in front of her at her house?
Tina started to speak, “What…what are you…how did you…?”
Bette refused to cry any more. She folded her arms across her chest, her gaze haughty and angry. She shook her head slowly. “You know, Christina, stuttering is really unbecoming of you.”
Tina simply stared at her. “Bette, how did you find – – – “
The dark brown eyes glittered with rage. “Oh Christina, I fucking followed you.”
Tina frowned. Hearing Bette call her “Christina” was off-putting. “Followed me?” she asked.
“You do speak English, right? Or is that something else you lied to me about? Yes, Christina, I followed you,” Bette replied.
The brunette pushed past Tina and into the home she’d never even heard about. Bette looked around quickly before stopping in the foyer, standing in front of the large photo of Tina and Henry on their wedding day.
Bette’s eyes were glistening when she turned to look at Tina. “Funny, I don’t see any construction here. This home looks pretty modern and updated to me. Almost as though you never had to remodel anything.”
Tina swallowed thickly. Her mind was spinning. What could she possibly say?
Bette’s smile was both menacing and bitter. “But let me guess. That was another lie. Just something you told me to keep me from knowing the real you. The real Christina.”
Tina finally spoke. “You always call me Tina. Please call me Tina.”
Bette shook her head. “You’re not my Tina. I don’t even know you.”
Tina moved closer to her. She wasn’t quite sure how Bette had found her address and she didn’t want to display all of her cards before she knew how to play her hand. “You do know me. What is going on?”
