Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Monday August 4th 2003
"Starlene are you here?" Tiffany called out as she opened the front door of their apartment overlooking Washington Square Park.
"In here packing," Starlene called out as she folded clothes and placed them in her suitcase.
"Oh my," Tiffany said as she walked to the door of Starlene's bedroom and saw the entire room was filled with boxes.
"Isn't this something?" Starlene said turning to look at her sister.
"Yeah, I'd say. I brought you lunch. I only have a little while. Come on," Tiffany said motioning towards the kitchen. Starlene tossed her Capri pants in the suitcase and followed her sister to the kitchen.
"I bought you a sandwich," Tiffany said taking the neatly wrapped sandwiches from a brown paper bag and placing them on plates from the cabinet.
"Thanks Tiffany. I've been busy all morning. I had to go to several stores to find boxes, then all this packing," Starlene said taking a seat on the barstool as Tiffany poured two Diet Cokes.
"How did all of this come about so fast Starlene?" Tiffany asked taking a seat beside her as she took the waxed paper off her sandwich.
"Stanley asked me last night if I wanted to move in with him, so I started packing," Starlene said taking a big bite from her deli sandwich.
"Just like that?"
Starlene nodded as she wiped the mayonnaise from the corners of her mouth.
"I don't know if this is a good idea Starlene. I mean he hasn't set the wedding date."
"No, but at least I'm in there where I can apply more pressure," she said taking a sip of her Coke.
"You know what they say Starlene... why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?" Tiffany said in her southern accent, as she shook salt on her sandwich.
"Yeah, but look what I'm getting out of this Tiffany. I'll be living in a mansion. I'll have a housekeeper and a limo, full time!"
"But all of this is Stanley's. You won't have any legal rights if things don't work out."
"If things don't work out then I'll move back."
"What if I'm not here?"
"Where are you going?" Starlene asked smiling.
"I don't know. But things aren't going that good for me either Starlene."
"What's the matter with you?"
"Oh I don't know. It's just that I never see Amir anymore. He's always abroad on his island and Brandon is always in California."
"That doesn't seem fair. Two wealthy men and you're all alone."
"Not only that, my job too," Tiffany said putting her sandwich down as if she'd lost her appetite.
"What's the matter now?"
"Did Clark hire her?"
"I think he slept with her."
"Oh! That's not so bad. I mean he's lonely. Nicole left him," Starlene said referring to his wife that moved back to Florida.
"I just don't like it Starlene. As soon as I get rid of Nicole, now I get Alexis. I just don't have anything to look forward to," Tiffany said.
"Is it because I'm moving out?" Starlene said noticing the tears in her sister's eyes.
"Well, that doesn't help. You know Starlene. This apartment belongs to Amir too. If I break up with him, I don't have anywhere to live."
