The Roommates – Fast Forward to 2019: Chapter 42
At a quarter after four, Bette and Tina were in the kitchen prepping snacks. Christmas music was playing in the background and Bette was pouring chips into a serving bowl.
“I still don’t understand how you throw a party without cooking any food,” said Tina.
Bette smiled. “T, you see that square-like contraption there?”
Tina smiled at her. “You mean the oven and stovetop?”
Bette nodded. “I do believe that’s what I’ve heard it called before.”
“What about it?
“It’s here for decoration and aesthetic completeness. I don’t cook. I don’t boil. I don’t even grill. I stay away from things that have flames or heating sources. I barely use my hair dryer and flat iron.”
Tina shook her head. “And Sidney?”
The brunette shrugged. “She doesn’t either. We ate at The Planet or would get some takeout.”
“This kitchen is beautiful. What a waste.”
Bette winked at her. “Make yourself at home. Mi kitchen es su kitchen.”
“So, what are we going to eat? Besides chips, hot Cheetos, and popcorn?”
“I have an order of food coming in an hour. We’ll have Chinese delivered. Those big catering sized dishes. And Kit and Dylan have been baking up a storm. Her mom is coming, too. So they are bringing sweets. Alice and Tasha are bringing sodas and drinks. Max insisted on bringing Christmas cookie dough to bake. I guess Dylan will do that with him.”
Tina’s eyes lit up. “Can I bake too?”
Bette chuckled. “Sure, T.”
“Is that the guest list?” asked Tina.
Bette nodded. “James and his girlfriend, and Maxwell might stop by. But otherwise, just the framily tonight.”
Bette looked at her curiously. “Friends and Family. Well, friends that are really family. So…framily.”
Tina nodded. “Framily.”
Bette kissed her softly on the lips. “Welcome to the framily, Baby.”
Tina smiled at her. “You think they will like me?”
Though she had met moguls all around the country, Tina was somewhat nervous about meeting her lover’s inner circle. “A bit.”
“Come here,” said Bette, extending her arms for an embrace.
