Bette rolling her eyes again and gritted her teeth.
Tina: I can’t wait to ride you again.
Henry: When will you be home?
Tina: As soon as we wrap, I’ll be on the next plane.
Henry: I can’t wait. Is it okay if I start moving my stuff back into the master bedroom?
Tina: Please do. I can’t wait to come home to you. And our bed.
Tina: Shit. Someone is calling for me. We are still filming. I’ll ttys.
Bette sighed and placed her lover’s phone on the nightstand before pulling Tina into her arms. The sun-kissed skin was soft and smooth, and Bette was simply absorbing the moment with Tina in her arms. Their naked skin was pressed together, feeling deliciously decadent.
Bette marveled at the changes within herself. It hadn’t been too long ago when she’d worried that she’d never be able to be intimate with Tina. That her recent history with Sidney had scarred her in ways that would make such closeness impossible. And yet, she’d been able to open her heart and her body to Tina without hesitation.
It was satiating.
Knowing that she and Tina could weather the coming storms together was reassuring for her. She smiled in the darkness, remembering how embarrassed she’d been in 2005 when Kit had witnessed them making love. She remembered the fear she’d felt regarding the uncertainty of their future together. Though they had openly loved each other at UCLA, both young women had lived with the concern of Tina’s homophobic parents finding out about their relationship.
Though that scenario had played out in 2019, it didn’t have quite the same consequences as it would have back in 2005.
Tina shifted against her, snuggling closely into Bette’s warm body. Bette kissed her cheek and a calming wave of contented relaxation washed over her.
She wondered; I have loved this woman for a long time. I hope this isn’t too soon for her. I finally feel whole again. I never thought it could be like this. Having Tina beside me, loving her so deeply. In my own home, with my own car, my own business, and a whole adult life.
The excitement of planning their near future sent her in search of her laptop. She grabbed it and settled back into bed, looking up arrangements for the two of them to visit Toronto, Ontario.
