Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday February 7th 2003
Skeeter sat at his desk filling in phony names on his sales report. He knew he should have made more sales calls in the last month, but he deserved a social life. The phone on his desk rang and he picked it up thinking his boss was ready for the sales meeting.
"Skeeter. Stanley Morgan is on the line for you," the secretary said.
"Jan Morgan's Father?" Skeeter asked as his heart raced.
"I think so. Do you want to take the call?"
"Does he know I'm here?"
"Yes. I told him you're in the office."
"I guess I better take it," Skeeter said taking a deep breath before hitting the blinking light on the telephone. "Hello", he said.
"Skeeter. This is Stanley Morgan."
"Yes. Hello Mr. Morgan."
"Are you busy now?"
"Well I'm at work," Skeeter said.
"I know that. I just wondered if you have time to talk."
"Sure. Shoot," Skeeter said.
"I saw the engagement picture in the newspaper this morning," Stanley said.
"Yeah, it's a good picture of Jan."
"Look, I guess I should have talked to you earlier. I didn't realize this little thing with you and my daughter would ever go this far."
"It's a surprise to me too," Skeeter said laughing nervously.
"Starlene told me that you and Tiffany aren't divorced yet," referring to his girlfriend, Tiffany's sister.
"That's kinda true."
"Kinda? Either you are or you aren't?"
"Well, Tiffany has been served papers and the divorce should be final soon."
"And you plan to marry my daughter in the spring?"
"Well, that's what the announcement in the newspaper said."
"Do you plan to marry Jan in the spring or not?" Stanley snapped.
"I guess so."
"Well, because I said I would."
"What did she promise you?"
"What do you mean by that?"
"Exactly what I asked you. What has Jan promised you to marry her?"
"It doesn't sound like you think too highly of your daughter to ask that kind of question."
"Look Jan's never been engaged. Jan's never had a serious relationship. I've only met you once or twice at parties but you don't look like the kind of man that would fall in love with my daughter."
"What are you getting at?"
"That's what I wanted to ask you. What are you trying to get at?"
"I don't like what you're implying here. You seem to think I'm after something."
"Well, I don't think you're hurting for women, so it must be money."
"I don't like this line of questioning."
"Well, let's just put it another way that maybe you'll like a little better, okay?"
"I'm listening," Skeeter said.
"You like women don't you?" Stanley asked.
"Well, I'm not gay if that's what you mean."
"Well I'm just saying that once you marry my daughter you won't have another minute in your life that someone isn't watching your every move. Jan's got a lot of money and that makes her somewhat of a celebrity in her own right. If you're after money I think you'll be paying a higher price than you realize."
"I really don't like what you are implying," Skeeter said squirming in his chair.
"I don't want to see my daughter's life ruined."
"She's in love with me."
"She'll get over it."
"Maybe I'm in love with her too."
"I'm just trying to help you out here. If it's money you want there are easier ways of getting it," Stanley said.
"How?" Skeeter asked.
