I walk back inside the planet making my way to Kit’s office. I had to leave Bette at that moment because it was all I could do to not pull her into my arms. Seeing her again was like drinking water. Refreshing yet nourishing at the same time. I have missed her so much. Even though our relationship crumbled, not having her in my life has been hard and now it seems so awkward between us and I don’t want that. Not for Angie. I need to push past my fears and try. I glance at Alice and Dana as I pass by them who are laughing at something Carmen said. If they can move past all the hurt and pain from their relationship so can Bette and I. And I know they both still love each other but they are making their friendship work. It is not out of the possibility for us to do the same.

“Yeah. Well I think you may be right. I was going to discuss this with you when you got here anyway. The deadline to enroll is October 20 for January”
“What changed your mind?” Bette asks softly and walks past me to kneel down beside Jodi to help Angie with a block
