Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Wednesday November 7th 2001
"What do you think Tiffany?" Starlene asked as she walked into her sister's bedroom in the apartment that they shared overlooking Washington Square Park.
Tiffany was seated at her vanity as she finished applying her make-up. She glanced up from the mirror the moment her younger sister turned her back to reveal the tight black short evening dress she was wearing. "Well, turn around Starlene I know it's the front of that dress I have to worry about," Tiffany said jokingly but serious.
"Do you think this will keep his attention?" Starlene asked rising up on the toes of her high heels and spinning around to face her older sister.
"Starlene you can't wear that to the dinner party!" Tiffany said shocked how little of her sister's voluptuous bosom was left to the imagination.
"Oh yes I can too," Starlene said putting her hands on her hips and modeling the risqué dress.
"I knew you would choose something like that to wear," Tiffany said.
"I have to keep Stanley's attention Tiffany."
"I thought you told me that he said he loved you last night and you didn't have anything to worry about with his new secretary Nicole," Tiffany said referring to Starlene's wealthy older lover.
"He did, but I want to keep him interested. Besides, who knows who might be there tonight."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean he might invite a big time publisher to come," Starlene said knowingly.
"He knows Charles Lewis," Starlene said.
"I didn't hear that he was coming to the dinner party," Tiffany said remembering that she had seen a message from CR Lewis on Stanley's desk when she went to his office at the Empire State Building the other day.
"Well, I'm not sure he'll be there but I begged Stanley to invite him."
"It doesn't matter who's there, you can't wear that dress Starlene," Tiffany said.
"I'll think about it. I have a little while before Stanley sends his car."
"Well, I'm out of time. I have to be there early to make sure the dining room is the way we want it," Tiffany said grabbing her purse from the chair.
"You're wearing that?" Starlene asked shocked that her sister would attend the dinner party for her lover dressed in a business suit.
"Yes Starlene, I'm working remember. I work for a party planning business..." Tiffany said raising her eyebrows.
"I think you should wear a cocktail dress. Aren't you worried about this new secretary?" Starlene asked referring to the new secretary that would be working with both of their lovers, Amir and Stanley.
"I hope that Amir loves me enough that I don't have to compete by wearing low cut dresses."
"Okay, do whatever makes you feel right, but I think you look like a librarian."
"Thanks but I'm wearing this," Tiffany said walking out of the bedroom and into the hallway towards the front door. She paused at the front door to take her coat from the hanger.
"Who's picking you up?" Starlene asked watching her sister open the front door.
"I'm going by the office and Clark and I are taking a cab from there," Tiffany said.
"I'll see you at Tavern on the Green," Starlene said.
"Yes… and not in that dress either Starlene. I mean it too," Tiffany said closing the door to hurriedly get to the office before her boss left for the dinner party.
