A Single Mom Meets Someone New Ch 112
Bette knew that involving Gillian in her plan wasn’t the best of ideas, but she wanted to Tina to be happy most of all, even if it meant losing her for good. That meant having her kids not only get along with whoever she was with but like them as well. Bette knew of Geri and knew she was not a kid person. In fact, she was famous in the community for her never having kids stance. She knew Gillian would do whatever she could to make both herself and Tina happy to a certain extent. All she asked Gillian to do was to be polite and cordial to Geri in front of Tina. Bette knew something so simple for most people would be very hard for Gillian because when it came to family especially Tina, she wasn’t very good at hiding her emotions. The only way she could get Gillian to agree was to say she had a big plan to get Tina back when in truth she didn’t. It was all a rouse, one that seemed to be working in her favor.
Tina walked up onto the deck. Bette was lying in a lounge chair wearing a sexy black bikini. Tina felt her heart start to pound. She was extremely nervous.
“Hey Bette.” She said.
“What are you doing here?” Bette asked without looking at her. Bette wanted nothing more than to lay a kiss on Tina that she would never forget but she knew that wouldn’t solve any of their problems only make them worse.
“I was hoping we could talk.” Tina said.
“Talk about what?” Bette sat up and watched Tina as she sat on the lounge chair next to her.
“Us.” Tina said.
“I was under the impression you didn’t want us to be an us anymore.” Bette laid back resuming her position. She was trying to make Tina think she was indifferent but that was the farthest thing from the truth.
“That’s what I wanted to talk to you about. I was wrong. I was so wrong. I love you and only you.” Tina said firmly.
“Why the change of heart?” Bette asked.
“I never stopped loving you. It’s always been you. You are the love of my life. I should have never suggested the open relationship to start with it was not the answer, but I just felt so lonely after the twins were born. We never had time for ourselves much less each other. We were stretched so thin with work Victoria and the twins, I don’t know I got lost in all of it.” Tina wiped the tears from her eyes.
“I know were having a hard time connecting but to suggest something that we both were against was hurtful. I never would have agreed to such a thing but I just wanted you to be happy. I can’t do it anymore. The lying to Gillian just pushed me over the edge. I looked at myself in the mirror and I did not like the person I had become. That’s not the kind of example I want to set for our children and the way Gillian looked at me when she found out. T, it was horrible. I felt like I had just told a kid there was no Santa. I know I’m not an innocent party in all of this but I never fell for anyone. It was just sex, that’s no excuse for letting it go on the way it did.
