Shane, Bette and Tina were still sitting outside by the pool conversing, when Tina's phone went off.
"Excuse me guys." answering her phone "Hey, Kate what’s up?"
Bette heard the name and remembered what she knew about Tina's and Kate's relationship. She started to get a feeling in the pit of her stomach.
Tina's side of the conversation,
"Ya, I'm looking forward to it to, it's been awhile."
Laughing, "Kate you know how I like that but I don't think so."
"O.K. I'll see you then."
Hanging up Tina looks at the others,
"What did I miss?"
"Nothing, I was just saying I had to go because I got a date with a sweet Latino!"
"Good luck Shane and Thanks for keeping things just between us!" Tina responds.
"Ya thanks Shane." Bette says, with a look at Tina.
"Hey Bette, I think I better hit the road and get ready for the work week ahead."
"Just a minute Tina, I think we need to talk."
"I don't like the sound of that. What's up Babe?"
"Was that the same Kate that you dated before?"
"Yes, why? She is the director on the movie we are going to be shooting. She was calling to make sure I was aware of the new shoot times for tomorrow."
"Oh, is she expecting the same fringe benefits she had last time with you?"
"Seriously Bette, are you jealous? I told you we were never serious, it was just casual."
"Yes but you didn't keep your relationship with her a secret did you?"
"Bette, you know why I feel that way. I thought you agreed?"
"I did but I don't really like it. Just how long do you want to keep it a secret? I thought we were both feeling good about things between us."
"I think you and I are amazing together, on all levels, not just physically. I don't know maybe I just like keeping you all to myself and not sharing us." kneeling beside Bette's lounge, Tina takes her hands in her own and leans in placing a tenderly sweet kiss on Bette's lips.
"Well when you put things that way, how can I be upset?"
Monday morning finds Tina hard at work looking intensely at her computer screen going over the scheduling and making sure everything and everyone is going to be ready. When there is a knock on her office door, looking up she see's Kate leaning on the door frame watching her work. Getting up to met her in front of her desk, Tina and Kate share a friendly embrace and a quick kiss on the cheek.
"Kate, it's good to see you. Aren't you here a little early?"
"Good to see you to, Tina. I'm really looking forward to working with you again and ya, I just had to drop by and make sure everything was going to be ready for tonight's shoot."
"I hope everything is good to go."
"Everything looks to be ready. You’re going to be there right, at 6pm? After all I only took this gig because you were producing it."
"I'm sure that's not why you took this job Kate but I'll be there with coffee in hand!"
"Great, see you tonight gorgeous!"
Ignoring the compliment Tina answers, "See ya tonight, Kate.
