Bette needed no further encouragement; she slid lower into the bed and pulled Tina into a firm embrace. Tina laid facing her and buried her face deep into Bette’s chest inhaling the sweet scent found there. They slept for several hours not waking until 1:30 pm.
Tina was the first to wake rubbing her nose into Bette’s chest then placing a few kisses there. Bette moans at the contact. “Mm… you sure know how to tease a woman.” Bette chuckles.
Tina slides up so Bette and she are on their sides laying face to face. “Bette?”
Bette yawns before answering. “Hm… yes Baby?”
“Could we… can we talk about us? Like our relationship… or not relationship… you know… whatever…”
Bette laughs at the adorable woman in her arms. “Ha! You’re so cute when you’re flustered.”
Tina blushes. “I’m sorry… I just want to know where we stand before I dive in too deep, you know?”
Bette sweeps some hair from Tina’s face. “I know exactly what you mean.” Bette takes a deep breath before continuing. “Well, I haven’t even known you 24hrs, but… I can’t explain these feelings.” Tears well in Bette’s eyes. “I’ve never felt this way before… ever… I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. I, obviously, don’t know very much about you, but I feel so connected to you. I feel like I know you and you know me; not in like the tiny detail way, but in this overwhelmingly intimate, emotionally cognitive way. Like earlier, when you wanted me… to share… and I was too… overwhelmed; someone else would have kept pushing me until I broke down and shared – I’ve gotten into more arguments with my friend Alice because she pushes so much and I’ve known her for years, but you… you can read me so well. How is that even possible? You could tell right away that I couldn’t open up in that moment, and you let it go. You comforted me and respected my boundaries… I’ve never experienced that before.” Several tears have fallen from both Bette and Tina’s eyes as she continues to express her thoughts. Tina continues to gently stroke her hair and wipe stray tears from Bette’s cheek. “What I’m trying to say is, I want to be with you. I know we met under the absolute worst possible circumstances, but I think it’s the severity of the situation that has allowed us to accept and explore these feelings so immediately. I think if we had met under normal circumstances, then we’d be a lot more hesitant and guarded. I know it’s going to take time to work through what happened T, but I hope you’ll let me be there with you to help you heal. I don’t want to leave your side Baby.”
