Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday January 11th 2002
Starlene and Tiffany watched as Nicole hung up the phone and quickly looked out of the window towards the Washington Square Hotel . Nicole thoughtfully rubbed her forehead to soothe her anxiety. Surely Vinny didn't know that the Washington Square Hotel was across the street from where she was working. She glanced towards Starlene and Tiffany feeling resentful that they may have overheard her tense conversation with her lover from Florida. She turned and walked up the stairs towards Clark's office.
When Nicole was out of sight Starlene turned towards Tiffany throwing her hand over her mouth.
"Starlene, Vinny is her Father's business partner and her boyfriend!" Tiffany whispered shocked by Nicole's admission.
"I didn't know that," Starlene said taking a seat in the chair in front of Tiffany's desk.
"Gee, now you've really gotten her in a lot of trouble," Tiffany whispered.
"Serves her right Tiffany. I don't care. She shouldn't have been making passes at all of our men," Starlene said wondering if she had done the right thing when she told Vinny over dinner all about Nicole's attempts to steal everyone's boyfriend.
"I don't know. I mean did you tell him about her modeling for Playbody too?" Tiffany asked.
"Well, of course I did. I mean that was my job until she talked to the editors. Besides remember she's the one that said her family would be proud of her modeling for Playbody."
"I just hope you didn't tell him too much. Do you think he's the violent type?" Tiffany asked remembering her experiences with Skeeter and how he would have handled this kind of news.
"Maybe," Starlene said thoughtfully.
"I wish you hadn't met with him Starlene. What if he tells her that you told him all of this?" Tiffany asked.
"He won't," Starlene said.
"How can you be so sure?"
"Cause he wants to get it on with me," Starlene said thoughtfully.
"But you've got Stanley," Tiffany said.
"I told you Tiffany he wouldn't care."
"But you told him no, right?"
"Not exactly," Starlene said frowning.
"Not exactly. You don't mean he thinks he could?"
"Well, I left it kinda open to the possibility. I mean I want to keep his attention," Starlene said.
"Oh God, Starlene. You don't even know this man. He might be violent or something," Tiffany said hearing the front door of the townhouse open and glanced up.
"Vinny," Starlene said surprised to see Nicole's boyfriend walking into the living room closing the door behind him.
"Nicki's here, ain't she?" Vinny asked smiling at Starlene.
"Yeah. She's upstairs. You aren't going to tell her that I told you about everything are you?" Starlene asked.
"I gave ya my word, didn't I?" he said glancing at Starlene's cleavage in the low cut sweater.
"Yeah," she said getting up from the chair to walk towards him.
"That your sister Tiffany you were telling me about?" he asked glancing towards Tiffany.
"Yeah, Tiffany meet Vinny," Starlene said as he nodded his head towards Tiffany and walked towards the stairway.
"You going up there?" Starlene asked nervously.
"Yeah, I didn't come by for my health," he said starting up the stairs towards Clark's office.
