The Roommates – Fast Forward to 2019: Chapter 43
“Why does everyone look so serious?” asked Bette, walking back into the living room.
Alice, Tasha, and Tina were sitting on the couch, staring up at her expectantly. Kit, Patricia, and Dylan had been the last guests to leave and after Kit honked, she’d gone to use the bathroom
Now they were all looking at her.
The room was softly lit, the glow of the Christmas tree lights flickering around them. But the vibe had changed. Gone was the happiness of Christmas magic and cheer. The joy seemed to have been sucked right out of the air.
“Come here, Babe,” said Tina, patting a spot beside her on the couch. It was the same couch they’d made love on not 12 hours before.
Bette gazed between Tina and Alice; her brow furrowed. “What’s going on?”
Tina sighed. “We need to talk about some things.”
Bette looked surprised. “Okay, T. Well, let’s do that when we’re alone. We still have company.”
Alice stood up. “Tina knows that I know…that she’s married. There’s more that she needs to tell you. And I wanted to be sure that she was honest.”
Tasha raised her hand.
Alice frowned at her. “You don’t need to raise your hand.”
“I’d just like to say that I’m in no way responsible for any of this. But that I fully support you and was happy to help Alice,” said Tasha.
“Guys, what the hell are you talking about?” asked Bette.
Tina patted the couch cushion and with a deep sigh, Bette finally acquiesced and sat down. “What is so important that you have to act like this is a congressional hearing?”
Alice sat down in an armchair.
Bette stared at her. “And you…….you knew she was married and you didn’t tell me?”
The scriptwriter held up her hand in defense. “Well, I only found out a few days ago. I had planned to tell you after the party was over.”
“What?! After the party was over?” asked Bette.
“Why are you mad at me? She’s the one who’s married.”
Bette looked at Tina before returning her gaze to Alice. “She and I have discussed that. What I don’t understand is why I’m the last person in this room to know. You told Tasha before you told me?”
