Bette timidly made her way to the bedroom, stopping in the doorway as she spotted her girlfriend facing away from her.
“Hey baby” She offered cautiously, taking note of Tina’s tense frame. Having somewhat of an idea as to why the blonde was so upset, Bette wanted to do anything but make matters worse. “You okay?”
Tina whipped around to face Bette, conflicting emotions swirling in her hazel eyes. She took a deep frustrated breath to which Bette found herself bracing for what was to come. The moment the blonde’s lips parted to speak, she held up a hand instead.
“Actually .. let’s talk in the living room. I don’t want to wake Angie”
Without another word, she walked out and made a beeline for the living room. Bette turned in time to see her retreating back as it turned the corner before letting out a deep sigh, following her girlfriend with haste.
She doesn’t want to wake Angie. This is going to be worse than I thought.
Bette knew that she hadn’t been entirely welcoming to Kevin but in her eyes, she had good reason. She loved Angelica more than life itself and Bette wouldn’t apologize for wanting to protect the baby girl .. no matter how intimidating Tina’s stare currently was.
Bette swallowed hard as she entered the living room and came face to face her upset girlfriend. Tina’s hands were pressed together, creating a steeple over her mouth. It was clear she was trying to control her emotions so Bette remained silent and let her do just that. Their earlier reconciliation was motivation enough, Bette didn’t want to fight.
“Okay” Tina at last blew out a deep breath as she pointed her hands at Bette, her palms still pressed together. “Before I say anything, I just want to tell you that I love you”
Oookayyy .. Bette clearly didn’t see that one coming. Maybe some shouting, or comments thrown at her over her behavior but definitely not an “I love you”. It was a good start. She blinked away the surprise that surely shone in her eyes and focused on the blonde in front of her.
“I love your drive. I love your passion. I love your unbelievably frustrating stubbornness and your unyielding inability to bend to anything you don’t agree with”
