Tell me Now
Libby woke up in Tinas guestroom wondering why her mother hadnt come to bed yet. It was when she turned on the light she saw it. She recognized Bettes handwriting as she read it her tears fell.
It all came back. Sorry I didnt kiss you goodbye. Please understand this. Ill call when everythings clearer. Tell her what she already knows. Please forgive me baby girl k.
Love your mother
Though it was only six oclock she went to tell Tina. But Tina already knew. The music that played softly in her room said it all,
Talk to me softly, theres something in your eyes. Dont hang your head in sorrow, and please dont cry. I know how you feel inside Ive been there before. Something is changing inside you and dont you know. Dont you cry tonight, I still love you baby, dont you cry tonight theres a heaven above you baby. Give me your whisper and give me a sign, give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye. Dont you take it so hard and please dont take it so bad. Ill still be thinking of you and the times we had baby. Dont you cry tonightAnd please remember that I never lied, please remembered how I felt inside, you gotta make it your own way but youll be all right, now sugar youll feel better tomorrow. Come the morning light now baby.
Tina, Im sorry.
I dont understand. Are you okay sweetie.
Yeah, Im just worried for her you know.
Tina comforted her but she was angry inside. She understood Bette leaving her, but Libby?
Libby, I know school doesnt start for a couple weeks, but you could stay here.
But my place is already set. Moms had it ready with Jason for some time.
Sweetie, Jason is my agent still. If you want I could tell him that we changed our minds. Besides Id rather you stay here.
Tina, please dont be mad at her. I understand where shes coming from. Maybe this time will do her good. Tina tried to take her words, but Bette did this every too often, run away when things were not good.
But for Libbys sake she didnt dwell on her too much.
I know, do you think we should call.
Not yet. Maybe in a little while.
For the net few days, the girls made an event out of moving Libby with Tina. Shane had little by little disappeared from her house so there was no kicking out of any sorts.
Finally after what had seemed forever the girls toasted to finishing their task. While they had celebrated Kit decided it was time to check up on Bette.
When Callie had answered it she knew nothing good was going to come of this.
What do you mean Callie?
Ever since she came home, shes been locked up drinking herself away. She only let me in once and she was just in a corner. Ive been trying to get her to stop.
