Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday November 30th 2001
"Tiffany are you home?" Starlene shouted slamming the apartment door shut and walking into the living room of the apartment overlooking Washington Square Park.
"In here," Tiffany said pulling the blanket up over her as she sat on the sofa watching the television.
"What's the matter are you sick?" Starlene asked taking off her coat and throwing it on the chair as she walked into the living room.
"Depressed," Tiffany said taking a sip of her hot chocolate.
"Me too," Starlene said.
"Why? I thought you were going to Stanley's office," Tiffany said.
"I did and that was quite a visit," Starlene said.
"When I got there he went into a meeting in his conference room with his insurance broker Dave. So I opened his desk drawer in his office looking for Charles Lewis's phone number and look what I found," Starlene said opening her purse and handing Tiffany pictures of Stanley's secretary in various stages of undress.
"Oh my," Tiffany said surprised.
"Yeah. Then Charles Lewis came by the office to have lunch with them," Starlene said hotly.
"Yeah, so I went to lunch with them. I asked Charles Lewis right out if it was true he wasn't going to let me model and he said they had changed plans that I won't be posing for Playbody for a while," Starlene said angrily.
"I know you were looking forward to it Starlene," Tiffany said relieved that her sister wouldn't be posing but knowing how disappointing this was for her.
"It's because of that little floozy," Starlene said glancing towards the photos.
"I can't stand her. She's nothing but trouble," Tiffany said honestly.
"Yes she is. Did you talk to Amir about her staying there after you left this morning?" Starlene asked taking the pictures back that Tiffany handed her.
"No. I called and his housekeeper said Amir had left for his office. I don't know how long they were there together after I left to come to work. I hope nothing happened. I think I trust Amir," Tiffany said referring to her leaving Nicole and Amir alone at his mansion when she left for work this morning.
"You better be careful. That's all I have to say," Starlene said.
"Why? Why do you say that Starlene? Did she say anything about Amir?
"She called him a 'handsome shy hunk.' She even called him 'Moneybags.' She's after him."
"Really? Did she say that anything happened after I left them this morning? Please tell me if you know Starlene," Tiffany pleaded.
"No. I don't think anything happened. But she tried," Starlene said referring to Nicole's remarks to Stanley's receptionist when she didn't know that Starlene was in the office listening.
"He didn't call me all day either. I wonder if he's interested in her?"
"I know Stanley is," Starlene said glancing down at the pictures in her hand then throwing them onto the table before taking a seat beside her sister on the sofa.
"Does Stanley know you found the pictures?"
"No. I took them so at least he can't enjoy looking at them anymore."
"Yeah, but she's right there in the office with him all day," Tiffany said.
"She's with Amir too," Starlene said.
"What are we going to do?" Tiffany asked.
"I'm going to get rid of her," Starlene said confidently.
"I'll make a few calls," Starlene said reaching for her purse and opening it. She quickly pulled out a couple of pink telephone messages and held them up smiling.
"What's that?" Tiffany asked.
"Stanley's receptionist can't stand her either."
"She gave me Nicole's boyfriend's phone number in Florida," Starlene said smiling proudly.
"I thought they were broken up. That's what Nicole said," Tiffany said.
"He calls her long distance from Florida everyday. He's still in love and he needs to know what his little floozy girlfriend is doing," Starlene said reaching for her phone.
