Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Wednesday January 2nd 2002
"Starlene you had a lot to drink the other night," Tiffany said as the two sisters sat in Tiffany's office near Washington Square Park.
"I'm telling you I overheard them in the kitchen. Stanley said I'll be with you after I take Starlene home. That's why I pretended to be drunk, so I could spend the night there," Starlene said still furious over the conversation she overheard at the New Year's Eve party between her wealthy lover Stanley and his young secretary Nicole.
"Well, what are you going to do if it is true?" Tiffany asked.
"I've got to get rid of her Tiffany," Starlene said starting to pace the floor when the front door opened and Stanley's daughter Jan walked in wearing her full-length mink coat.
"Clark here?" Jan asked starting towards the stairway to go up to his office.
"No, he should be in soon though Jan," Tiffany said.
"Alright I'll wait then," Jan said taking off her coat and tossing it over the back of the sofa.
"Coffee?" Tiffany offered.
"Yes," Jan said taking a seat on the sofa.
Tiffany got up and walked towards the kitchen.
"So Happy New Year Jan," Starlene said trying to make small talk with her lover's daughter.
"You think so?" Jan asked.
"If I could get rid of Nicole it would be," Starlene said.
"I'd like to get rid of her too," Jan said.
"Well, can you believe it? We finally have something in common," Starlene said.
"That's about all," Jan said picking up a travel magazine from the coffee table and flipping through the pages.
"Why do you hate her so much?" Starlene asked as Tiffany walked in from the kitchen carrying Jan's coffee.
"She's a tramp. She's after my Father and every man she meets," Jan said.
"I thought she was after Stanley too," Starlene said referring to her lover and Jan's Father.
"Starlene you might have just had too much to drink the other night," Tiffany suggested walking towards the coffee table with the mug of steaming coffee.
"Why do you defend her Tiffany?" Jan asked.
"I'm not defending her."
"Oh yes you are. Did you know she was at your ex-husband's house the other night?" Jan asked glancing up to watch Tiffany's reaction.
"What?" Tiffany said placing the mug on the glass coffee table.
"Oh that's great," Starlene said laughing.
"What do you mean Jan?" Tiffany asked.
"I was in the neighborhood. I remembered you telling me that you used to live in that building over the Red Lion. I put two and two together when I saw Nicole going into the building," Jan said enjoying the shock on Tiffany's face.
"That's impossible," Tiffany said.
"Impossible?" Jan asked.
"I mean. I don't think she would do that."
"Oh yes she would," Starlene said.
"Jan I never told you that I lived over the Red Lion," Tiffany said.
"Yes you did."
"No I didn't either."
"Are you calling me a liar?" Jan snapped.
"No. No. Forget it. I don't care anyway. Why should I care what Skeeter does now," Tiffany lied.
"Because. What Skeeter does, my Father's doing and how do you know that Amir's not too?" Jan said as the door opened and Clark walked in.
