Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday October 31st 2003
Tiffany put her cell phone back into her purse as she walked along Bleecker Street towards her apartment building. She couldn't help but smile as she thought about how excited Starlene had sounded on the phone. Even though she didn't think her younger sister should have posed for Playbody Magazine, she could understand her delight on having her picture in this month's issue. Tiffany saw the newsstand on the corner and picked up her pace. She quickly glanced over the magazine covers featuring pictures of presidential candidates, business owners and hairstyles. Then she saw the section with women posing nearly nude. She glanced around her to see if anyone was looking and quickly picked up the new issue of Playbody Magazine and handed it to the clerk along with a twenty dollar bill.
"That all for today?" the man wearing a turban asked as he handed her the change and smiled.
"That's all... it's not for me," Tiffany said as she felt her face redden.
She quickly walked away folding the magazine in half hoping that no one would notice she was carrying a girly magazine.
"Tiffany," she heard a familiar voice calling from behind her on Bleecker Street.
"Oh," she said as she turned and saw her ex-husband Skeeter approaching her.
"How you doing Baby?" he asked walking up beside her.
"Okay. When are you going to open your new lingerie store Skeeter?" she asked referring to the risqué store he was opening on the ground floor of the apartment building where she had just moved.
"Almost ready to open now. I still have to get the dressing room ready. I've hired a sales girl and I'm ready to go," he said looking down and noticing the magazine she was clutching to her chest.
"Great. I'm sure you'll enjoy having your own business," she said as she started to walk towards her building.
"What are you reading Tiffany?" he asked smiling.
"Oh it's just a magazine," she said not wanting to discuss her sister's picture with him.
"I see, it's the latest issue of Playbody isn't it?" he said grinning as she looked at the back cover and saw a picture of several women in skimpy T-shirts featuring the name "Playbody" on the front.
"Yes. It's the one with Starlene's picture in it."
"I know. I saw it," he said.
"I wish she hadn't posed for the pictures but it's too late now."
"As long as your Daddy doesn't find out," Skeeter said knowingly.
"That's what I told Starlene," she said as they approached his storefront.
"What you think of the window Baby?" he asked nodding his head towards his store.
"It's okay Skeeter," she said barely looking at the skimpy outfits but noticing the girl inside the store waving at Skeeter.
"Who is that?"
"That's Amanda. Jan hired her."
"Oh, she doesn't look like the type you'd hire," Tiffany said noticing the baggy pants and shirt the girl was wearing.
"Let me ask you something," Skeeter, said almost in a whisper.
"What Skeeter?" she asked backing away from him worried he was going to make a pass at her on the sidewalk.
"Have you ever had a woman try anything with you since you moved to New York?"
"What are you talking about Skeeter?"
"I mean you know..." he asked raising his eyebrows.
"I've heard they're everywhere, but I've never known one of them myself."
"She might be one. I just don't know for sure yet," he said motioning his head towards Amanda. They looked up to see Amanda smiling as her eyes feasted on Tiffany and the Playbody magazine Tiffany was holding to her chest.
