Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Monday May 26th 2003
"Mornin'," Skeeter said walking into the kitchen of Stanley's Upper East Side mansion.
"Good morning Skeeter," Stanley said taking a sip of his coffee and placing the mug on the counter.
"Jan left early this morning. Did you see her before she left for her meeting?" Skeeter asked pouring himself a cup of coffee and taking a seat at the bar next to Stanley.
"No, I slept late this morning," Stanley said picking up the newspaper from the bar and pretending to be reading.
"Did you sleep okay?" Skeeter asked blowing loudly on the hot coffee.
"I slept," Stanley said remembering how his daughter's bed had rhythmically hit against his bedroom wall for an hour before he finally went to sleep.
"That a nice bed Jan's got," Skeeter said sure he'd made enough noise to keep Stanley awake a while last night.
"Don't you work?" Stanley asked glancing over the top of his newspaper.
"Yeap. You work?"
"Of course. I go in when I want to," Stanley said tossing the newspaper on the bar.
"I go out on sales calls when I want to," Skeeter said referring to his position as a lingerie salesman.
"Are lingerie sales good these days?"
"Oh sure. I don't have any problems."
"Good. Well, I better get ready for work," Stanley said not wanting to be in the company of his new son-in-law any longer.
"Jan and I didn't keep you awake last night did we?" Skeeter asked blowing on the hot coffee again as he watched Stanley stop and turn to look at him.
"No, why?" he lied.
"You know. We're still honeymooning and everything. I want to keep a smile on her face," Skeeter said reaching into the box of doughnuts on the bar and taking one.
"I can assure you I'm not concerned or interested," Stanley said watching the handsome southerner as he took a big bite out of the doughnut.
"Well, don't worry. Your little girl is in good hands now," Skeeter said licking his fingers.
"I wasn't worried until now."
"What does that mean?"
"You know what I mean. You know I didn't want you marrying Jan."
"I thought we'd been through all this before Jan and I got married."
"I told you I didn't want you to marry her."
"You told me that but you know that your daughter is getting older and there was no talking her out of it."
"Just get it annulled."
"Oh no, that wasn't the deal," Skeeter said.
"Yes you know the deal we made. I promised I'd convince her to run off and get married so you wouldn't have to be embarrassed by a big wedding. I did my part. You can't get any quicker than Vegas," he said taking another doughnut from the box.
"I never thought Jan would do that."
"She didn't have anyone else beating down her door."
"So what do you intend to do now?" Stanley asked.
"I was planning on using my wedding gift from you to buy some things for us," Skeeter said watching Stanley closely.
"I don't know about that. Why should I?"
"You said you would. I deliver on my promises."
"What if I don't?"
"I think you will. You don't want Jan unhappy now. Think how that might look to your society friends if a lingerie salesman leaves your daughter right after a quickie wedding," Skeeter said as he licked the honey from his fingers.
