Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday November 22nd 2002
Skeeter propped his head up on his pillow as he watched Trisha walk from his bathroom wrapped in a damp towel.
"Skeeter I don't think I can see you tonight, I've got to work," she said dropping the towel on his bedroom floor and picking up her jeans from the bed.
"That's okay Baby. I got a client I need to go out with anyway," he said in his slow southern accent wondering if he would be going to dinner with Jan tonight. He never thought yesterday when he agreed to meet Jan for lunch that he'd end up engaged to her. The size of the diamond ring she had bought for him to give her was something he'd never anticipated.
"You do like me don't you Skeeter?" she asked as she zipped her tight jeans. She glanced up to see him staring at her voluptuous bare bosom.
"Oh yeah Baby. We get along great," he said referring to the intimate lunch hour they had just shared.
"You seem a little preoccupied today Skeeter," she said picking up her sweater from the corner of the bed and pulling it over her head.
"Oh. Well, I do have a lot on my mind."
"You can tell me. I want to mean more to you than a quick fling at lunch."
"Well, it's kind of complicated."
"I can handle it. I want our relationship to grow," she said taking a seat in the chair nearby and picking up her boots.
"Well, I guess I should tell you that this woman I had been seeing before I met you... " he said stopping to see that she was watching him closely as she zipped up her boots.
"What? You're in love with someone else?"
"No. No. Nothing like that."
"Well, what is it then?"
"She's a very rich, powerful woman and I've been seeing her a long time. I saw her last night and she's demanding that I get engaged to her," he said glancing up to see that she was staring at him.
"So you're engaged to someone else and we just... " she said.
"Well, it's not exactly like that."
"What's it like then?"
"She's very wealthy."
"Well, getting engaged to her is kind of a career move if you know what I mean."
"Are you going to marry her?"
"Well, I don't know yet. I was surprised by all of this, I'll just have to see how it goes."
"Just when I was starting to fall for you Skeeter," she said walking towards the bed and taking a seat beside him.
"I'm fallin' for you too Baby," he said sitting up and brushing her long hair from her cheeks.
"I guess we won't be seeing each other anymore then," she said pouting.
"That's kind of drastic don't you think?"
"Getting engaged isn't light Skeeter."
"It's more like appearances. You know rich people do things for appearances. She's always traveling and working. I'll have a lot of free time," he said putting his hand under her sweater and pulling her towards him.
"But you'll belong to her," she said feeling a rush of excitement as his hands explored under her sweater.
"Business deals are on paper. Love's about this... ain't it Baby?" he said kissing her as he pulled her down beside him on the bed.
