Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Thursday December 27th 2001
Stanley opened his office door in the Empire State Building and was surprised to see his daughter Jan sitting behind his desk. His new secretary Nicole stood in front of Jan with her hands on her hips in the short leather skirt.
"Ladies, what do I owe the honor?" Stanley asked smiling hesitantly as he noticed the tension on both of their faces.
"I need to talk to you," Jan said standing up and walking to her Father kissing him on the cheek.
"Sure," he said placing his briefcase on his long mahogany desk. He kissed his daughter on the cheek and walked around the desk to take a seat.
"I need to talk to you later too," Nicole said suspecting that Jan was going to try to get her fired.
"Well, I'm only here for about ten minutes then I'm off to a meeting," he said.
"This won't take long Father," Jan said.
"Could you excuse us for a minute Nicki?" Stanley asked.
"Sure Stan," she said smiling as he winked at her when Jan wasn't looking. She turned to leave the office and turned back quickly to see Stanley watching her hips in the short skirt she was wearing.
"Could we have lunch later today Stan?" Nicole asked before closing the door.
"Sure honey," he said. He knew that meant they would order in. They would mix lunch with some pleasure on his sofa with the door locked while his receptionist went to lunch with the other girls down the hallway.
Jan's eyes narrowed as she watched Nicole close the door to her Father's office.
"So Jan what brings you by this early in the morning?" Stanley asked opening his desk drawer to look for the papers for his meeting.
"I want to talk to you about her", Jan said starting to pace the floor in front of his desk.
"What's the matter?"
"I was in the village last night going to meet a friend when I spotted Nicole going into an apartment building," Jan said stopping to stand in front of her Father's desk.
"Yeah, she lives over there," Stanley said pulling out a folder from his desk and opening it to look for his paper to take to his meeting.
"I saw her go up into the building where Skeeter Diamond lives," Jan said.
"Skeeter…. Skeeter. Oh yeah, that's Tiffany's ex-husband isn't it?" Stanley asked finding the paper he was looking for and opening his briefcase.
"Yes. So I went to the door and knocked to see what she was doing there," Jan said her heart racing.
"So?" he asked suspicious of why his daughter would care.
"She was there. I think she is seeing Skeeter Diamond," Jan said flatly.
"Really?" Stanley asked curious.
"Yes, Father that girl is a tramp."
"Well, wait a minute Jan. Just because she went into his building doesn't mean they're... you know?" Stanley said raising his eyebrows to infer an affair.
"I went to the door and listened. They were engaged in some very intimate activity I can assure you," Jan said through her pursed lips.
"That guy really gets around doesn't he," Stanley said shocked.
"Fire her today."
"I can't do that."
"Father I know she made a pass at you too."
"Come on Jan. She's just a innocent young girl."
"When I opened your office door that day and caught the two of you on the sofa, she wasn't a young innocent girl," Jan said trying to hold down her voice.
"You can't blame a man my age for indulging a little. I don't know how much longer I'll live. When you get my age, you'll understand."
"I understand right now, she's a tramp. I want her fired Father."
"I can't do that."
"Why? Why can't you fire her?" she asked noticing the concern on her Father's face.
