    Uncharted Territory

    Chapter 15

     

    Tina’s POV     

     

     

    ‘What do you think about this one?’ Bette points at the large canvas standing at the easel in one of the light chambers of the chateaux. We drove here this morning after she called me and invited me to join to see an artist who lives and works just a few hours away from Paris. After the heavy talk we had a few weeks ago, we met a few times for lunch or a walk, taking our time and taking it slow, just enjoying being in the same city again, staying away from all the sensitive topics.

    ‘I wouldn’t put it in the living room…it’s a bit grotesque but it fits this space.’

    ‘Hmm grotesque… interesting interpretation.’ With a small amused smile she glances back at the painting one last time before she strolls off to the next piece that’s much smaller and easier on the eye.

    ‘This one I really like.’

    ‘So this one you would hang in the living room?’

    ‘Study maybe…’ I say as I follow her. I always found her passion for art wildly attractive. It’s about the way she takes her time to study every piece, her eyes sparkle or become touched by what’s portrayed on the canvas, her face becomes soft, it’s clear she’s really taking it all in and then when she starts talking about it she draws me in, takes me into that world with her until I feel every emotion she’s feeling. She can talk about art for hours, sharing every feeling, including me in every thought, until the surrounding becomes completely irrelevant and there is only her voice and the passionate glow in her eyes. I glance next to me and study her profile. There is that glow that I know so well while enjoying this new discovery. The dark, slick business suit that she decided to wear today completes the appealing image that I could study for hours, like she studies art. ‘I’m glad you asked me to join.’

    ‘I thought you’d like to see this place and I know how much you enjoy the French countryside.’

    ‘That too.’

    ‘What else?’

    ‘It’s nice to go somewhere together.’

    ‘It is…’ When she turns to me and I meet her intense look, I find myself transfixed. And when she steps closer with an enticing smile, her voice appreciative and ardent, I am even more drawn in. ‘When you were in the other room he told me that I have a really beautiful wife.’

    1. Thank s for the chapter!

      But i have to say – Bette’s behavior on Tina’s birthday seems like last straw to me. How Tina not left her after that – i don’t understand.

      And now i also don’t know if there is any sense to them to try again, after so awful first time attempt

    2. We are inching inching inching along. So painful. But they didn’t unravel overnight so they won’t be put back together over night either. Keep it coming! I am sorry for not responding to the other chapters but I have been reading and rooting for them to get back together where they belong.

    3. Hmmmmm light is starting to shine on what each was thinking as they moved together in sharing a life. The big picture seems to be that it matters where one resides. Paris is where they needed to have stayed. Start a family there and open a gallery there.

      They wanted to have “family” around, which makes sense, but LA wasn’t “where” they needed to be at that time in their lives. The definition I’ve committed to memory that has served faithfully no matter my age or situation in life.

      PURPOSE is the right people, at the right time with the right message.

      Trying to “force” any one of the three and shytt doesnt work out!!!

      Anyway, they both are doing well in refusing to be defensive or accusative as they hear (with ears and heart) and see the true facial reactions as the pain surfaces, sometimes abruptly. The wounds are being cleansed with honesty.

    4. These two seamed determined to make their lives in Los Angeles as difficult as possible. Both of them refused to talk to the other about what was bothering them, what was giving them sleepless night’s and how they were interpreting the actions of the other…. total lack of communication and kept piling on as time went on…. both of them…. And then they both hoped to resolve their issues by waiting on the other to make the first move…. Its a wonder they are taking now. They both need a big dose of courage. Get in the ring and allow the other to take all their shots at them…. until they have completely emptied their reserves. Talk to each other about everything – the good, the bad and the ugly. Try to see what things looked like in the other’s shoes and figure out what you would have done if this had been your view of the situation. Try to put into words where you went wrong… and express it to the woman you love. Or…spare yourself the hurt of what happened and be happy with the hurt of loss instead. Either choice will not be pleasant…. but one choice could lead to happiness with someone you love beyond measure… the other will not. Not going through a rehash of the past will not lead to a solid foundation for the future. It will allow the problems and behaviors to remain in place which will be repeated in future relationship – either with each other or with future other relationships. It is best to gather the courage and the will power to stay in the conversation and listen and learn from what happened. Its the only chance to correct their individual mistakes in judgement and behavior. This is a long and difficult journey but necessary for their future whether together or with others….
