    Uncharted Territory

    She giggles as the words stall in my mouth. ‘We’re about to watch a movie.’

    ‘Which one?’ Diane asks in a smiling voice.

    ‘One guess.’

    ‘Seriously Out of Africa again?’ Tina’s mother sighs dramatically. ‘I pity you Bette.’

    ‘I made peace with myself long time ago that I will watch that movie at least once a year for the rest of my life.’ My eyes caress as much as my fingertips do, stroking the silky blonde lock behind Tina’s ear before I hand her the remote and she nests between my legs with her back against my chest.

    ‘The things you do for love.’ Diane’s voice drifts off contently.

     

    Tina’s POV  

     

    ‘Don’t look.’ I lean back holding the notebook tightly against my chest.

    ‘Are you keeping a diary about me?’ Bette playfully leans in trying to take a hold of the notebook and nuzzles her nose in my neck. ‘Dear diary.’ She starts in a funny voice. ‘..surprisingly Bette was still awake last night after I made her watch that same old movie for the millionth time. After it was finally done and she couldn’t win the discussion whether Meryl Streep or Katharine Hepburn is the greatest actress of all time once again, she resorted to my favorite distraction, using her unprecedented ability to blow my mind with only a kiss. And oh my god, when she put her skillful hands to use I just swooned. She is so…’

    ‘…presumptuous.’ I cut her throwing my head back laughing wholeheartedly.

    ‘Is this presumptuous too?’ She smirks before capturing my breath with her lips and her tongue invites mine to continue last night’s dance. Slipping my hand in her hair I pull her deeper into the kiss. Seizing the opportunity of the unguarded moment she steels the small scrapbook from my hands and beams proudly.

    ‘Hey, give it back.’ I squeal as she turns away from me holding the book out of my reach on arm’s length. Those long arms are perfect to take something from cupboards that I can’t reach and to envelop me in a tight embrace, but not so when I’m not ready to show what till now was only a vague idea that lingered in the back of my mind. ‘Don’t read it. It’s nothing.’ I say as she starts browsing through the pages.

    1. They’ve been through so much that even when they are doing well, a part of me worries for them. Bette taking a trip to L.A. on her own? I’ve never been happier that Tina could join her in the end. But the last part of the chapter killed me… I wish they can have the family that they want.

    2. The good news is that this was a long chapter and the sad news is that this story is almost over and the end of this chapter was so sad. I feel for both of them. I really wish and hope that one day they will have their family!

      The description of Paris, beautiful written! I visited Paris a few times and it’s such a beautiful place!

      Glad that Tina came to LA at the end, came home, the home she left to go to Paris. This is a very important step in their relationship.

      Diana, i love her!

    3. Love the longer chapter. This is such a great story. It can’t be ending, though, that is not ok. Just when they are coming back together. It needs a second verse, please consider continuing it. :)
      One things I love about your writing is that you show the connection in the dialogue you write – no easy task – but artfully done here. It’s in the shorthand way that they talk to each other and in the way they read each other so well. You don’t tell the reader – Tina missed Bette – you add them talking about Tina being in a grumpy mood because she is accustomed to hitting snooze since Bette has been with her and this morning she had a hard time getting to work on time because of it. It’s delightful and adds such depth. Thank you !

    4. I’m one of the silent readers. I absolutely loved this story and your writing is beautiful. I almost want to go to France now! I look forward to reading more of your work.

    5. Oh my fucking God! What an brilliant chapter! The way Tina was like struck with lightning when Bette told her that she loves her. The way you used content of the purse to show Tina collecting herself and then hanging up! And then the voice text and the way Tina subtly used LDR to tell Bette that she loves her too, just bc it wouldn’t do it justice to say it over the phone for the first time after such a long time. And then their acknowledgment with ‘I got your text’/‘I got your flowers’! And what an amazing way to show through Helena and Winny what divorce does to the surrounding, it’s such a heavy ballast that impacts everyone.
      The way you showed how Bette misses working but how she grew and learned what really matters! I love Bette in the gallery! And the way you used Tina starting to write again as a reference to her growing feelings for Bette (as Tina said bf ‘It had nothing to do with Paris’). Not only that you said you are about to finish the story, but you write it in so many small details, that you make it beautiful but painful obvious! (Sorry for all exclamation marks – this story makes me that excited!) And then… at the end, the twist I’ve never seen coming… I could feel how lonely Tina was without you putting too much effort in it. It broke my heart. Seeing this story and it’s tone it wouldn’t surprise me anymore if it would happen they end up with just the two of them. It would be so sad and yet it would fit this story.

      BK is right though-sequel maybe?
