Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Monday December 3rd 2001
"You mean Stanley's receptionist gave you Nicole's boyfriend's phone number in Florida?" Tiffany asked throwing the blanket from her lap and sitting up on the sofa of her apartment overlooking Washington Square Park.
"Yeap, she hates Nicole too," her younger sister Starlene said glancing down at the pink telephone messages she had secretly retrieved from her lover Stanley's office today.
"You can't just call this guy," Tiffany said smiling broadly at her sister's plot to get rid of the young secretary that was chasing both of their boyfriends.
"Why not?" Starlene asked opening her cell phone to dial the number.
"What will you say?"
"That I know her and ask him a few questions."
"I don't know. If she finds out she'll be really mad at you and so will Stanley," Tiffany said her heart racing with excitement.
"She's posing like this in front of my Stanley," Starlene said putting the cell phone aside and picking up the pictures of Nicole in various stages of undress that she had found in Stanley's desk drawer.
"Yeah, but that's because she's posing for Playbody," Tiffany said still shocked that her sister went through Stanley's desk drawer while he was out of his office and found the proofs.
"I just wonder if her boyfriend knows about this," Starlene said holding up one of the more risqué pictures.
"Yeah, maybe not," Tiffany said shaking her head in disgust.
"And she crashed your evening with Amir too didn't she?" Starlene asked referring to Nicole's stopping by Amir's mansion during an ice storm and spending the night with them.
"Yeah. I can't stand her Starlene. But what will you say?"
"Don't worry about it. I'll handle it," Starlene said dialing the number and listening to the phone ring.
"Yeah," a man's voice answered.
"Could I speak to Vinny," Starlene said.
"Speaking," the young man said.
"Hi. I'm an acquaintance of your girlfriend Nicole in New York City," Starlene said.
"Yeah," the man said.
"Are you and Nicole close?"
"Who is this?"
"I work with her kinda," Starlene said.
"She's my woman," the man said.
"Did you know she's posing for Playbody Magazine?" Starlene asked.
"What are you talking about?"
"Yeah. I found the pictures in her desk drawer. Her boss Stanley Morgan helped get her a job modeling," Starlene said.
"Who are you?"
"Just somebody that knows," Starlene said.
"Put Nicki on the phone," Vinny said.
"I'm not at the office now," Starlene said smiling excitedly as she glanced towards Tiffany.
"Where is she?" Vinny asked.
"The last time I saw her she was in the office with Stanley. I think you really need to talk to your girlfriend," Starlene said in her southern accent hanging up the phone.
"What did he say?" Tiffany asked.
"It's what he didn't say! I think she's in big trouble," Starlene said putting the phone on the table.
"How did he sound Starlene?"
"Mean, really mean. I'm sure he'll talk to her right away."
"Don't you think he'll be mad at Stanley too?"
"Stanley deserves it doesn't he?" Starlene said picking up the picture of Nicole and holding it up for emphasis.
