The resort where the wrap party was being held had several venues including formal ballrooms, restaurants with varied cuisines and a nightclub with full service bar and private nooks for intimate conversation. It was also a popular spot for weddings as it offered outdoor spaces with magnificent panoramic views of the snowcapped Canadian mountains and lakes.
As Bette and Tina made their way out to the veranda to get some fresh air they passed the nightclub, and could hear the house band gearing up as the guests transitioned from dinner to dancing. The couple planned to join the party later for some dancing but for now they headed to a cozy seating area with a fire pit in the center and a self-service hot beverage bar. Bette prepared two cups of chamomile tea and handed one to Tina. Tina thanked her girlfriend and intentionally allowed her fingers to graze Bette’s as she took the cup.
Bette smiled giving Tina one of those looks she reserved only for the love of her life. She sat next to Tina on the loveseat close enough for their thighs to touch and put her arms around the blonde’s shoulders. Even with the light touch she could feel the tension emanating from Tina’s body. If they weren’t wearing cocktail dresses Bette would have sat back and invited Tina to sit between her legs so she could hold her close and comfort her. However Tina made the best of it and settled into the crock of Bette’s arms, leaned her head against her shoulder and let out a deep sigh.
Tina was so grateful that Bette was there with her in Canada. She didn’t realize how much she’d missed her girlfriend these past several weeks until Bette showed up out of the blue that morning. Moreover there was no way she could have gotten through this night without Bette by her side to lean on and draw strength from. Tina sipped the soothing tea that not only warmed her body against the chill of the night but also calmed her anger and frustration at the turn of events. She felt in the past 72 hours as if her world was coming apart at the seams and she was barely able to hold it together.
