Why Are You Here?
Chapter 1 – The Plan
In early January of 2020, Helena and Dylan spent some time in Malibu and decided to get together with the gang and catchup with each other’s lives.
Shane was in the process of hiring a new manager for Dana’s. Shane’s marriage to Quira was on the rocks as she wanted a baby and Shane was not interested in becoming a parent.
Alice was having problems with her studio as they did not believe her show “Alice” was getting the numbers they thought she should be pulling in and had decided to send her a new producer to see if things could improve.
Bette had decided to throw her hat into the ring to be mayor for the City of Los Angeles. A special election would be held on the 2nd Tuesday in April, but Bette would not go into full campaign mode until mid-February.
Angie had been hinting to Bette that their life would be so much easier if she could get a car for her senior year and she would prefer to have a vehicle for the summer. The idea was new to Bette and she did not have an immediate response for Angie. She did not want to make any promises until she had consulted with Tina. And Tina would be on hiatus during March and possibly earlier, but Bette did not know.
Bette Porter and Tina Kennard were no longer a couple. They had been divorced for some two years after seven years of marriage and almost thirteen years of living together prior to their marriage. Twenty years of being a couple and it had all ended with a divorce decree. Their life together had its problems. There had been two major periods of separation. The first one lasted seven months. The second one lasted a little more than a year. But they had worked out their problems and resumed their life as a loving couple and the parents to Angelica. That is until early 2017.
In 2009, the couple moved to New York City and were married soon thereafter. With the help of Peggy Peabody and her wife Marilyn Stockman, Bette and Tina quickly settled into their lives in New York City.
