I won’t have it Bette. You have to tell me things or we will find ourselves down the road in a failed marriage. I don’t want that, do you?
Bette lets out the air in her lungs…No! God NO!
Then why after seeing her and talking with her, realizing what she was up to, didn’t you say anything to me? We were together all night yet you said nothing. And by the looks of you this morning, you didn’t sleep much worrying about it.
I don’t know. I guess I thought it would work itself out. I figured telling Kelly I wasn’t scared would cause her to back down.
God you can be so infuriating sometimes Bette! Bette drops her head with tears in her eyes upset with herself for hurting Tina like this. Were you ever planning on telling me about her if it had worked itself out? Tina says sarcastically with finger quotes.
After the wedding when things calmed down.
So you were going to wait until after I married you before you told me. So I couldn’t change my mind is that what you were thinking?
Bette looks up finding Tina’s eyes. She pauses. Her face is wet from her own tears. Yes. Bette whispered. She scared me especially with the tape. I hoped that by calling her on her threats that she would see no fun in it and leave. And if she had backed down, then I would tell you afterward because I didn’t want you upset through the wedding. There’s so much going on right now and so many things I wanted you to enjoy. I didn’t want it marred with my drama or have it be what we remembered about the wedding. And yes a part of me was scared you would change your mind if you heard that tape.
Tina had looked away while listening to Bette explain her thoughts. There is silence for what seemed like an eternity to Bette. Finally Bette had to ask as she pushed her hands into her pockets to keep them from shaking…Have you…changed your mind?
You of all people should know the answer to that Bette. Tina was breathing heavily looking up to Bette again, hurt that Bette would think she would leave her for any reason at this point.
